Hey everyone. Elmira saw none of the snow from the last blizzard that afflicted the mid-Atlantic. That is a tight gradient that Elmira doesn’t usually end up on the favorable side of. Will fortune continue to be in their favor this week?
At 1053PM, ET, Elmira was reporting a temperature of 40 degrees with a brisk west wind and overcast skies. The sharp upper level trough that originally parented the major winter storm of the weekend continues to lie over eastern North America, though it is reorienting in such a manner that it will soon become a progressive feature. The exit flow is split, and there is an inland streak at the north end. As a result, there is an upper level band of clouds with light precipitation found on satellite stretching through New England and the Appalachians.
There is a broader, lower amplitude wave in the Great Lakes that will help usher things along in New York. The westerly flow will taper, and the post frontal moisture, as well as any lake effect snow will dry up early in the day tomorrow. The next round of precipitation will be a Clipper moving through the Great Lakes, but with a strong jet remaining over the Gulf and Gulf Stream, this feature is not epected to carry any mosture over the Catskills into Elmira, but it should begin to import some warmer air.
