The recent wet spell is set to continue this week, with a moisture-laden storm system crossing the region today into tomorrow, and an inch of rain or more is likely in many communities south and west of Ithaca. For what it’s worth, it does appear drier and milder conditions will arrive towards the weekend, though most if not all of the week will continue to see below normal temperatures.Image courtesy of the Northeast Regional Climate Center.Weather RecapWith all of April 2021’s meteorological data in the record books, it was a fairly uneventful month for Ithaca and Tompkins County, a little on the mild side and a little on the wet side, but nothing to write home about. With an average temperature of 44.8°F, the Northeast Regional Climate Center’s site on Dryden’s Game Farm Road was 1.1°F above average, which is a tie for 55th warmest in 123 years of valid local records – or in other words, the warm side of near-normal.Regionally, the pattern was much the same, with 30 of the 35 first-order climate stations reporting warmer-than-normal temperatures for April. The exceptions were the four West Virginia stations and Albany, which has had a well-documented cold bias (it reads artificially low temperatures) ever since the sensor was replaced back in July 2020. Only the two Maine stations, Caribou and Portland, reported top-ten warmest Aprils. Image courtesy of the Northeast Regional Climate Center. On the precipitation side, April was wetter than usual, and that’s a good thing, given that early in the month much of Upstate was heading into mild and moderate drought conditions. 3.88″ of liquid and liquid-equivalent was received at Game Farm Road, including the meltwater from 4.1″ of snow. The typical figures for April are 3.40″ of precipitation and 2.8″ of snow respectively. Precipitation doesn’t follow normal statistical distributions (instead of the Bell curve, it follows a gamma distribution), so 3.88″ is actually wet enough for 20th place in the 120+ years of valid local records. Regionally, however, most of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic was on the dry side. 28 of the 35 first-order climate stations were drier than usual, with Allentown, Pennsylvania having its fifth-driest April on record. In contrast, Binghamton, the closest first-order site to Ithaca, had its tenth-wettest April on record. Precipitation tends to be more variable than temperature, as a line of thunderstorms and downpours hitting the right place can make the difference between a wet and dry month. With precipitation data, it’s generally better to look over longer-term periods for seasonal trends.On the topic of those seasonal trends, we still have a modest precipitation deficit at the moment (about 1.4″ or so ), but the next day and a half will make substantial progress to bringing Ithaca and Tompkins County closer to normal as we head continue into the prime growing season and the thirstier part of the year. This is a rather tricky system to forecast because small changes in storm track and strength will have significant impacts. The further northeast it goes, the more heavy rain there will be. If it intensifies and the counterclockwise-rotating circulation deepens, a stronger low will wrap in more cold air on its backside and that will up the chances for measurable snow at higher elevations (inversely, a weaker storm results in lower chances). The model runs coming out suggest Tompkins County is situated far enough east to avoid the coldest air passing through in the middle of the night, and therefore that snow risk. However, it’s going to be a wet evening and overnight Sunday into Monday. Highs in the mid 50s will fall back into the low 40s in Ithaca and along the lake, and upper 30s in the outlying areas as overcast skies with moderate to heavy rain deposit a tenth of an inch to a quarter-inch of rain by sunset. Overnight, the rain will continue with another quarter-inch to half-inch of rain, with higher amounts south and west of Ithaca, and temperatures holding steady in the upper 30s and lower 40s. The rain should begin to taper off after about 2 AM, with periods of light to moderate rain through sunrise Monday, finally winding down between 9 AM and 12 PM.Once those showers taper of Monday, skies will clear up to partly cloudy conditions by afternoon, though with a northwest breeze behind the low, it’ll be on the cool side for mid-May, with highs only in the upper 50s to around 60°F. With the clockwise floe of a Canadian high to the northwest, it’ll be a chilly night Monday, especially in places where the clouds manage to clear out; Ithaca will be in the upper 30s, and mid 30s are more likely up on the hills, with some patchy frost possible. Tuesday will be a brisk day for Tompkins County, as the Canadian high and a low pressure system aloft to the northeast create an enhanced flow of cool air from the north. It will be mostly sunny early, with partly to mostly cloudy skies by afternoon as that upper-level low retrogrades southwestward into Northern New York, and it may provide enough instability aloft for a few showers as well as cloudier skies. Highs will be in the mid 50s. The low will begin to move back eastward again by evening, which will reduce the risk for rain, though mostly cloudy skies will continue into Wednesday morning. Lows will be in the upper 30s.Wednesday is looking a little milder and sunnier as the low’s departure means a weaker northwesterly flow as that Canadian high still sits off to the northwest. It will be mostly sunny with highs around 60 °F. Wednesday night will see clear or near-clear skies, which allow temperatures to slide back into the upper 30s for overnight lows across Tompkins County.Thursday sees the high move southeastward, which will cause the northwest flow to slacken even more. Close proximity to the Southern Tier will result in a stable atmosphere and generous amounts of sunshine. Highs will be in the mid 60s with partly cloudy skies. Thursday night will see somewhat cloudier skies as a weak shortwave (pulse of atmospheric instability) develops to the south, but it will remain dry with lows in the mid 40s.Friday will see the risk for a few rain showers south of Ithaca as that shortwave develops and moves northeastward with a coastal low, but generally it should remain dry. Plan for partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 60s. Friday night will have a chance for a few light rain showers, primarily south and east of Ithaca, with lows in the mid 40s.For your weekend, a cold front will pass to the north, and there’s the possibility it may channel enough instability into the Southern Tier to trigger some rain showers, but those that develop will be light and generally north of Ithaca. Highs both days will be in the upper 60s with partly to mostly cloudy skies, with lows in the upper 40s.Images courtesy of the NOAA Climate Prediction Center.Extended OutlookLook into the second half of the month, medium-range models favor a regime change with a broad ridge in the jet stream over the Great Lakes and a trough along the West Coast. The edges of the ridge would be far enough from the Northeast to support a drier-than-normal period to go along with the warmer-than-normal temperatures expected for the week of the 17th – good signs for a meteorologically pleasant graduation season, and early indicators suggest the warm, dry pattern will continue into Memorial Day weekend. Challenging forecast today. The track of the low & precip rates will greatly impact if conditions become cold enough for snow, where and how much this evening. Most favorable area for a couple inches of snow on grassy surfaces in higher terrain of Steuben Cnty. #snow #nywx #pawx pic.twitter.com/zxcb1M1o5U— NWS Binghamton (@NWSBinghamton) May 9, 2021 Your Weekly WeatherOf focus this cloudy Sunday afternoon is a broad area of low pressure trekking east-northeastward across the Ohio River Valley on a trajectory that takes it across Pennsylvania, downstate New York and Southern New England. This system has a tap into the Gulf of Mexico and its moisture-heavy air, which will allow for significant amounts of precipitation starting this evening and carrying through the overnight hours and into Monday. The primary shield of precipitation will fall from about mid-evening (5 PM) through about 5 AM Monday morning, with lighter, scattered showers past sunrise and into the later morning hours.

first_img The American billionaire has also expressed his dismay that Arsenal had gathered details about Suarez’s contract and he insists they should not have been talking to the former Ajax man. When asked whether Arsenal should stop their pursuit of the player, Henry told Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet: “They don’t have permission to do all this, so the answer would be yes.” Suarez has threatened to hand in a transfer request and even mooted the possibility of taking the Reds to a Premier League tribunal if he does not get his desired move away from Anfield. But speaking on Thursday night, Henry was insistent that his star man would stay and expressed his anger that any potential clauses within his contract had found their way into the Arsenal boardroom. “It should have been confidential, so absolutely it concerns me,” said Henry. “How does a club that doesn’t have permission to speak with your player see his contract? “Unfortunately, it’s the way it works in football. People don’t speak about it publicly but that’s the way it’s run. It’s how things are done. I don’t think there’s a point reporting Arsenal because it just seems to happen everywhere, throughout football.” Suarez is currently training separately from the rest of the squad and manager Brendan Rodgers said: “Obviously Luis is training on his own at the moment and he understands totally where we’re coming from. “We’re in no great rush, to be honest. I needed to make a decision in terms of the well-being of the group. The training through pre-season has been absolutely magnificent. The mentality of the players. I just couldn’t afford to break that. The Gunners have lodged a bid of £40million plus £1 for the striker, an amount that the Uruguayan believed would trigger a buy-out clause if it came from a club in the Champions League. But Liverpool have refuted that claim, with Henry saying he has told Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis that he will not allow Suarez to go to the Emirates for any price. “But when the time comes, we’ll come in and speak and once he’s ready to train how he’s always done we’ll put him back in the group. “It’s been a difficult period for him but it’s my job to protect the group and the football club. Once he’s back in line with the spirit that everyone knows of him, and the commitment, then he’ll rejoin the group. “It’s obviously been a difficult few days for him but he knows where we stand as a football club. “The ownership have been brilliant. They’ve been quite adamant and clear and have supported our intention of wanting to keep him. “We don’t feel like we’re fighting a losing battle. He’s a contracted player for Liverpool and I’m fairly confident he’ll remain that.” Aside from the contract issue, another area of football governance of concern to Henry is the Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations formulated by UEFA in recent years. FFP has been designed to bring clubs’ spending more in line with their incomes but with Paris St Germain, Monaco, Chelsea and Manchester City still spending lavishly with the help of wealthy benefactors, the Boston Red Sox owner does not believe the regulations are working. “I’ve talked a lot about Financial Fair Flay, especially in England and Europe,” he continued. “I knew well about the financial problems football has when I took over Liverpool. “It does not look like FFP works. I am very unhappy that they have not taken seriously the rules, and it’s also frustrating that UEFA have not done so. They need to address the problem. It should have worked better.” Liverpool owner John W Henry has told Arsenal to give up in their pursuit of Luis Suarez. Press Associationlast_img read more


first_imgFIFA President, Gianni Infantino Femi Solaja AHEAD 2019 AFCONcenter_img Determined not to be caught off guard when new rules initiated by International Football Association Board (IFAB) come into play, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has concluded plans to educate all its national football teams on the move by FIFA.At its (IFAB) 133rd Annual General Meeting held on March 2nd, 2019 in Aberdeen, Scotland, five major changes to the rules of football were adopted and are expected to come into force from June 1st this year.Some are minor others are a lot more dramatic. First, there will be no rebounds from penalties, meaning play will stop for a restart if a penalty is saved or hits the post. There will no longer be opportunity of a follow up to score from such rebounds.Henceforth, handballs either voluntarily or involuntarily will no longer be allowed except if the action leads to goal.Also, a substituted player can leave the field anywhere to guard against time wasting by advantaged team.IFAB also ruled that players can now touch the ball in the area after a goalkeeper kicks it out unlike before that players could not touch goal kicks before they exited the box.Finally, coaches will receive cards instead of reprimands. Now, they can be able to be given yellow and red cards just like players.“We are ready to adapt to the changes that will come into force in the next few months. Nigerian football has suffered from negligence in the past but in this digital age, we are more abreast to adaptation that goes with whatever change in our dynamic sport.“In the days to come, the Technical Department and its Committee will soon meet on how best to educate all the teams and not only the Super Eagles, the same message will go down to clubs participating in the continental competition and also in the domestic football,” Head of Communication NFF, Mr. Ademola Olajire revealed to THISDAY last night.Super Falcons will be the first to face the new rules at the FIFA Women World Cup finals in France from 7th June to 7th July while Super Eagles comes next at the Africa Cup of Nations final in Egypt scheduled for 21st June to 19th of July.The Green Eagles were victims of the ‘ball-in-flight’ rule when it was introduce late 1987.Indomitable Lions of Cameroon were the beneficiary of the rule as the goal they scored was considered legal in the group stage match against Nigeria in the Nations Cup tournament held in Morocco in 1988.The goal by Roger Milla canceled Late Samuel Okwaraji’s brilliant early lead for Nigeria. The match ended 1-1 a piece.Most local pundits and Nigerian bench felt the team was robbed, that the centre referee judgment was wrong to have allowed that goal.The Nigerian coaches insisted that it should have been ruled an offside.However, the new rule was later interpreted to the team to avoid such mistakes in their subsequent games.FIFA has been striving to improve the behavior of players during matches and thus call for changes in the rules.FIFA President, Gianni Infantino sees women as role models for male players because there is less simulation and time wasting in the women’s game.According to Infantino, it was time for men to clean up their act to improve the image of soccer.“The men’s game has developed incredibly, positively, but a few maybe side effects have unfortunately developed as well that we are fighting now,” Infantino said at the AGM in Scotland.“Let’s take the example of the women’s game.”Infantino’s admiration for the conduct of female players stands in contrast to predecessor Sepp Blatter, who urged them to wear tighter kits to make the game more popular.“Women are nicer than men, probably, generally,” Infantino said. “Sometimes we men feel that we need to show how strong we are, probably in the human nature, and this is reflected as well in some of the behavior in society in general but also on the football pitch,” he remarked.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
