Elmira, New York

Yes, we still do forecasts here at this site.

At 1153AM, ET, Elmira was reporting a temperature of 53 degres with sunny skies and a somewhat vigorous southwest breeze. Two strong ridges lie over north America, with one over western Canada, and the other just now exiting the east coast. This, more than anything, is the cause of the breezy conditions, as Elmira is at the greatest gradient on the west side of the eastern ridge.
The general pattern is a broad upper level trough, with the surface trough reflected along the jet. Rather than broad scale synoptic scale systems, impulses along the jet are being reflected as surface lows, such as what is moving through the Upper Midwest. The mean trough will try to shift east, and be decoupled over western New York. High pressure will build tomorrow after one of the impulses moves through around mid-day, but late in the day Monday, the jet will initiate development over the Appalachians, and some rain will filter it’s way into Elmira before midnight.
