   Mesoscale Discussion 0108
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK

   Areas affected...northeastern NY and northern New England

   Concerning...Heavy snow 

   Valid 260107Z - 260700Z

   SUMMARY...Local heavy snowfall rates of 1-2"/hr are possible during
   the next several hours in northeastern NY and portions of northern
   New England.

   DISCUSSION...Bands of heavier snowfall rates are currently being
   observed in northeastern NY and northern VT. These are associated
   with a weak surface warm front extending from around the Finger
   Lakes region northeastward toward northern VT and NH. The broad warm
   and moist advection collocated with moderate mid-level lapse rates
   (6-7 C/km from 700-500 mb) is expected to persist as the attendant
   surface cyclone slowly deepens over Lake Erie. These bands are
   expected to translate northeastward and pose the shortest-term
   threat for heavier snowfall rates.

   Lighter snowfall rates are ongoing to the south in east-central NY.
   However, stronger 850-mb frontogenesis is forecast to develop by
   around 03z in this area per recent HREF guidance. This should
   quickly "fill in" this area around this time and translate to the
   northeast over the ensuing few hours (around 03-07z). The most
   likely areas of heavier snowfall rates (possibly up to 2"/hr
   locally) should drape through central VT, NH, and western ME as this
   forcing passes through. The eastern periphery of the MCD shows were
   the heaviest snowfall rates are likely around 07z; at this point,
   downstream areas may be highlighted for the potential for heavy
   snowfall rates if this evolution persists.
