....take a look at the visible satellite imagery right now (~10 AM): |
Holy Freaking Catfish, rarely do you see the wet valleys so well delineated by the blossoming cumulus cloud cover....you can clearly see the bend in the Genesee valley at Mt.Morris, then continuing down to KDSV and beyond. Lots of lesser valleys too, e.g. Wyoming - Warsaw.
Bottom line: release over the high ground....and stay there!!
: Yesterday...iffy. Today...sure. Godzilla
: leaves when he feels like it, and finally,
: after raising hell* all over the NEUS, has
: edged out of our way just enough. All of
: yesterdays model output had us overcast for
: today, still under the influence of enough
: synoptic-scale ascent from the monster. We
: know what a difference a day makes, so:
: Today: excellent overnight sounding and
: latest models portend a good soaring day.
: Initially modest lift and cloud base should
: both increase during the day, since the
: soggy ground will be drying robustly. Could
: still be patches of overdevelopment, watch
: out if you get too far out. What's too far?
: Perhaps Painted Post.
: Tomorrow: good winch day.
: Friday: could be better than today.
: Saturday: earlier models had a swath of
: precip over the southern tier. Now it's
: progged to be further south, in PA. Who
: knows...maybe tomorrow's models will
: flip-flop it back over us.
: Stay tuned.
