AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Albany NY 811 PM EDT Tue Sep 29 2020

SYNOPSIS. A cold front will slowly move across the region through tonight with a low pressure system moving along it bringing periods of rainfall, locally heavy at times and a few thunderstorms. The rainfall will exit Wednesday, as a cooler air mass will build into the region. Cooler more seasonable temperatures will continue for the rest of the week into the weekend with the next chance of showers on Friday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING/. As of 750 PM EDT . Surface cold front has pushed eastward through much of eastern NY and into extreme western New England, however its progress will slow as a wave of low pressure develops along the front with mid/upper level winds remaining parallel to the surface front. There is a sharp delineation in dewpoints behind and ahead of the boundary, with 50s behind and mid to upper 60s ahead. The front did not quite make it through Ulster, Dutchess, Litchfield and much of Berkshire county. This is where the focus for the heaviest rain will be overnight. Until then, moderate to occasionally heavy showers will continue to lift northward from the southern half of the area this evening, with a strengthening southerly flow along and east of the cold front.

Upper energy in the OH Valley will allow for the upper level trough to become negatively tilted and track through our region, enhancing low level convergence, frontogenesis and moisture advection, drawing moisture in and off the mid Atlantic region. Low level jet energy will rapidly strengthen as the boundary layer thermal gradient tightens, resulting in the development of an enhanced narrow cold frontal rain band with some embedded thunder from the Hudson Valley around the Capital Region and points east through western New England after midnight and through daybreak.

Beneficial rains can be expected everywhere but the heaviest rain is expected to develop around the central Mohawk Valley and Lake George Saratoga Region to eastern Catskills with the most organized potential narrow cold frontal rain band from the mid Hudson Valley and near or east of the Capital Region through Western New England. Some ponding of water on roads and standing water in low lying areas is possible in those areas.

The narrow cold frontal rain band could produce wind gusts over 30 mph from the Hudson Valley through western New England with over 35 mph possible in western New England, where the boundary layer winds are supposed to be strongest before shifting out of our region toward daybreak. Lows tonight in the 50s to around 60.

SHORT TERM /6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY/. Rain exits Wednesday morning. Mean upper trough axis stays west of our region and deep flow remains southwest. Some deep cold advection does occur Wednesday and Thursday but any lake effect clouds and showers look to be directed mainly into northern Herkimer and maybe northwestern Hamilton Counties with the west to southwest flow.

West to southwest winds will be gusty Wednesday and there will be intervals of clouds and sun. Highs Wednesday in the mid 60s to around 70 but 50s to around 60 higher terrain.

Weak upper impulse tracks through the cyclonic flow within the mean upper trough Wednesday night into early Thursday morning but very little moisture with it. Some intervals of clouds possible Wednesday night with maybe an isolated shower in northern Herkimer and Hamilton Counties.

Intervals of clouds and sun Thursday with west to southwest winds a bit lighter than on Wednesday. Highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s but around 60 to mid 60s higher terrain.

Stronger upper energy and the mean upper trough axis tracks through our region late Thursday night and Friday, with some Atlantic moisture getting drawn north, interacting with boundary layer frontogenesis with a tightening thermal gradient and strengthening boundary layer winds. So mostly cloudy to cloudy Friday with chances of rain, especially along and east of the Hudson River. Highs Friday in the mid 50s to lower 60s.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. Showers will be diminishing in coverage on Friday evening as a wave of low pressure exits across eastern and northern New England. There could be a lingering shower for later Friday night into Saturday for far western parts of the area, otherwise, it will be dry with a partly cloudy sky. After lows in 40s on Friday night, highs should reach well into the 50s for most spots on Saturday, with some southern areas topping out in the lower 60s.

Dry weather looks to continue for Sat night into Sunday. With a mostly clear sky expected, lows will be into the mid 30s to low 40s on Sat night and some frost cannot be ruled out for areas where the growing season is still ongoing. Seasonable temps are expected on Sunday, with highs generally in the mid 50s to mid 60s, along with a partly to mostly sunny sky.

The next storm system may be impacting the region during the early part of next week, although there is still some uncertainty regarding the exact track and timing of the precipitation. As an upper level disturbance approaches from the Midwest, moisture will be moving northward along the eastern seaboard. This could allow for a period of steady rainfall for some point between Monday and Monday night, although some guidance suggests the heaviest/steadiest precip may remain south and east of the region. For now, will go with CHC pops during this time period with temperatures remaining close to seasonal normals.

AVIATION /00Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Widespread rain will occur through the overnight and into early Wednesday morning as a wave of low pressure develops along a slow moving cold front.

Mainly VFR/MVFR conditions initially this evening, but will slowly deteriorate to IFR as steadier/heavier rain develops from south to north just after midnight. Model guidance consistent in indicating a line of heavy rainfall moving eastward across the TAF sites between 07Z-10Z. LIFR will likely occur with a 1-2 hour period of +RA. Once this line of heavy rain moves through, light rain or showers will then persist through around 14Z.

Conditions will then gradually improve from IFR to MVFR and eventually VFR by late morning to early afternoon, as drier air moves in from the west.

Low level wind shear will occur at KPOU/KPSF this evening into the early overnight hours as a southerly jet rapidly strengthens overhead. LLWS will dissipate by early Wednesday morning.

Surface winds will be variable around 3-6 kt, although a brief period of southeast winds around 8-12 kt will occur at KPOU/KPSF tonight before the cold front moves through. Winds on Wednesday will be southwest around 8-13 kt with some higher gusts near 20 kt at KALB/KPSF.

Outlook .

Wednesday Night: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX. Thursday: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX. Thursday Night: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX. Friday: Moderate Operational Impact. Scattered SHRA. Friday Night: Moderate Operational Impact. Chance of SHRA. Saturday: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX. Saturday Night: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX. Sunday: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX.

FIRE WEATHER. A cold front will slowly move across the region through tonight with a low pressure system moving along it bringing periods of rainfall, locally heavy at times and a few thunderstorms. The rainfall will exit Wednesday, as a cooler air mass will build into the region. Cooler more seasonable temperatures will continue for the rest of the week into the weekend with the next chance of showers on Friday.

Max RH values tonight will be around 100 percent with rainfall. The RH values will lower to 55 to 70 percent Wednesday afternoon. RH values increase to 70 to 100 percent Wednesday night and lower to 45 to 60 percent Thursday afternoon.

The winds will shift to west and southwest at 15 mph or less through tonight. West to southwest winds increase to 10 to 20 mph by Wednesday afternoon with some gusts possible to 25 to 30 mph. West to southwest winds diminish Wednesday night to 15 mph or less and continue at 15 mph or less Thursday.

A widespread soaking rainfall is expected tonight into Wednesday morning.

HYDROLOGY. A widespread rainfall is expected tonight into Wednesday morning across eastern NY and western New England. No flooding is expected on the main stem rivers due to dry antecedent conditions.

A soaking rainfall is then expected tonight into Wednesday, as a slow-moving cold front moves across the region. There remains some uncertainty with regards to the placement of the maximum rainfall amounts, although it does appear likely for a storm total of 1-2 inches of rainfall with up to 3 inches in favored higher terrain upslope locations /eastern Catskills, Berkshires and Litchfield Hills/ in the south/southwest flow. Given extremely dry antecedent conditions and low stream flows/river levels, this rainfall is not forecast to result in widespread flooding and will be beneficial. Gridded FFG values remain high. 6-hr FFG values are in the 3-6 inch range.

However, WPC has the entire area in a 'Marginal Risk' of exceeding the FFG, and they upgraded the eastern Catskills, mid Hudson Valley to areas around the Capital Region, southern Vermont, the Berkshires and Litchfield County into a 'Slight Risk'. An isolated flash flood can not be ruled out due to training of heavy showers/isolated thunderstorms or intense hourly rainfall rates. If rainfall rates approach an inch an hour, some ponding of water may occur on some roadways, as well as some local poor drainage flooding of low lying areas.

Lake effect showers will produce light rainfall amounts for the western Adirondacks Wed late pm into Thu. Another disturbance will bring a chance of showers on Fri. River flows will lower in the cooler more seasonable temps late in the week.
