Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Buffalo NY 738 PM EDT Wed Aug 5 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure centered over the Upper Mid West will build across the Lower Great Lakes through Thursday. While a weak disturbance could bring parts of the area a few showers late Thursday night and Friday . fair and notably warmer weather will return for the weekend.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH THURSDAY/. Fair weather tonight with high pressure approaching from the Upper Mid West.

Upper low over Ontario and Quebec deamplifies into Thursday but it stays seasonably cool aloft with H85 temps around +8C. Given water temps on Lake Erie of 77F (25C) and 70F (21C) on Lake Ontario, over- water instability is sufficient enough for a lake response but mainly if supplemented by additional moisture. Slgt chc for a few showers will be on east end of Lake Ontario tonight into Thursday morning. Some hint that could see at least isolated showers into nw Niagara Peninsula off of western Lake Ontario as well. Though mainly a marine issue, a heads up that given the over-water instability present, any shower or even just an area of enhanced clouds along a convergence zone will have potential to produce waterspouts into Thursday morning.

SHORT TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/. Dry weather will continue into Thursday night. A upper level low will track across the Lower Great Lakes through Friday. Moisture from a system moving across Virginia will enter western NY Thursday night into Friday. Clouds will increase into Friday morning while a few showers are possible across the western Southern Tier through Friday afternoon. The upper low will move into New England Friday night and moisture will diminish across the region. Highs Friday will reach the mid to upper 70s with a few places along the Lake Plains reaching 80.

High pressure returns Saturday and Saturday night. Daytime heating will produce surface based instability across the higher terrain Saturday afternoon. A few showers and storms are possible. Elsewhere will remain dry. Highs on Saturday will reach the upper 70s to low 80s. Lows Saturday night will fall to the upper 50s to low 60s.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Surface high pressure will slide off the coastline Sunday - Monday and this will allow for a return to greater low level moisture (humidity) and warmth. Temperatures at 850 hPa will rise into the high teens Celsius and this will bring surface temperatures into the lower 90s across the Lake Plains, and mid to upper 80s elsewhere. When combined with the increased humidity, apparent temperatures Monday will rise well into the 90s across the Genesee Valley and Finger Lakes region. The nearby surface high pressure and warming aloft combined with no deep moisture in the mid levels will hold back on precipitation chances for much of Sunday and Monday.

A cold front will approach the region Tuesday and early Wednesday. A shortwave will pass by well to our north, but within a prefrontal trough Tuesday, and then early Wednesday morning as the cold front passes there will be an increase in showers and thunderstorm chances. Humidity will lower later Wednesday, though summers warmth in the 80s will remain.

AVIATION /00Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. High pressure approaching from the Upper Mid West will support fair dry weather through Thursday evening. The only fly in the ointment will be the potential for some late night fog in the valleys of the Srn Tier. This fog could become deep enough to lead to a few hours of MVFR to IFR vsbys at KJHW towards daybreak.

Outlook .

Thursday through Monday . VFR.

MARINE. Winds will continue to subside throughout the Lower Great Lakes tonight as high pressure will build in from the Upper Mid West.

Generally light winds and negligible waves can then be expected Thursday into Friday.

BUF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NY . Beach Hazards Statement until 9 PM EDT this evening for NYZ007. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 2 AM EDT Thursday for LOZ045.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
