There will be some late night fog and temperatures should be about 10 degrees or so warmer than last night. Expect lows tonight to be in the upper 30s to lower 40s with highs on Wednesday in the upper 50s to around 70. Winds will be light and variable overnight into Wednesday.

&& .SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/... Wednesday night-Thursday, fair conditions with a warming trend. Some patchy fog could form late Wed nt-early Thu. Otherwise, expect lows mainly in the upper 30s to mid 40s, with highs on Thursday, with a deep southwest flow developing ahead of a weak cold front, temps have the potential to reach the lower 70s or higher in valley areas, assuming morning low clouds/fog do not persist. Expect mainly 60s across higher elevations. Thursday night, perhaps some patchy clouds as a weak front moves across. Otherwise, remaining fairly mild, with lows in the 40s for most areas, with perhaps some 30s across higher elevations in the Adirondacks. && .LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... High pressure will build into our region behind the cold front that tracked through Thursday and Thursday night. Dry weather and a slow warm up is expected as the high pressure eventually builds east Saturday through Monday. A developing strong upper system in southern Canada and the western Great Lakes organizes later Sunday and into Monday, strengthening warm advection, increasing cloud cover and bringing the chance for showers. Highs Friday in the upper 60s to lower 70s except upper 50s to lower 60s southern Adirondacks. Highs Saturday through Monday from around 70 to the mid 70s but mid to upper 60s higher terrain. && .AVIATION /18Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/... Sky will be mostly clear through the period ending 18Z Wednesday as high pressure controls our weather. There may be some late night fog at the TAF sites so have placed 2SM BR in the TAFs late tonight. Winds will become south to southwest late this afternoon and evening. Winds trend toward calm this evening and remain light to calm through tonight into Wednesday. Outlook... Wednesday Night: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX. Thursday: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX.
