Synopsis
High pressure remains in control through Saturday. A deep low
passing several hundred miles northwest of the region will produce
unsettled weather Saturday night into Sunday. High pressure builds
across the region through the first half of the week. A low
pressure may impact the region during the middle of next week.

Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
Thin cirrus with filtered sunshine resulted in a milky look to
the sky today and the cirrus will be in no hurry to leave as a
feed of moisture continues to ride the jetstream northeastward
overnight and up and over a ridge aloft centered off the east
coast of florida. This moisture feed stretches all the way back
across mexico and so we should see little change in the sky
cover overnight though model cross sections and flat layer 300
mb moisture hint it may thin a bit toward daybreak. Overall
mostly cloudy skies are forecast across the area for tonight.

Temperatures are a bit tricky due to the cloud cover, but lows
generally in the middle 20s inland to the upper 20s and low 30s
elsewhere are forecast. I did tweak lows a degree or two down in
outlying areas well away from the city based on the latest
observations. If the high clouds end up thicker, then lows may
end up a few degrees higher than forecasted.

Short term 6 am Saturday morning through Sunday
Upper ridge axis settles over the eastern seaboard on Saturday with
surface high pressure gradually sliding offshore through the day.

The main change to the forecast for the daytime hours on Saturday
was to remove pops. Dprog dt on the models indicates a slower trend
with the onset of precipitation with the next system. Clouds will
gradually thicken and lower, especially Saturday afternoon and
evening. Temperatures should be near seasonable levels.

Deepening low pressure tracks up into the great lakes region
Saturday night. Warm advection and a approaching warm front from the
south will develop precipitation, especially overnight. The latest
trend continues to be for a slower onset timing of the
precipitation especially for areas east of the hudson river.

The overall synoptic pattern is not supportive of frozen precip
which has been par for the course during most of this winter
where the cold air has been quick to make an exit when precip
starts to advance on in or shortly after it starts. Temperatures
in the low levels of the atmosphere will rise well above 0c
through the night, with 850 mb temps progged to be near +10c
early Sunday morning. Surface temperatures could start out near
freezing across the interior of the lower hudson valley and
interior southern connecticut. It is here where a brief period
of freezing rain at the onset is possible though ice
accumulations should be limited to a slight glaze at best.

Otherwise, this event will be in the form of plain rain. Pops
were blended to match neighboring grids with the evening update
a little along the western border which also fit in-line with
the latest WRF (nam) and ECMWF qpf.

Rain continues Sunday morning and it could be locally heavy at
times. The atmosphere dries out quickly late Sunday morning with
rain ending from west to east around midday. The warm front will try
to push north of the area, but may not completely do so.

Temperatures should be able to reach the low 50s south and middle to
upper 40s inland. If the warm front does lift north, then
temperatures could end up a bit higher in the afternoon. A trailing
cold front moves through late afternoon and early evening. A shower
cannot be ruled out with this front, so pops have been maintained in
the slight chance to chance range. Any strong winds look to hold off
until Sunday night behind the cold front.

Long term Sunday night through Friday
High pressure builds toward the region Sunday night, behind a
departing cold front. With a strong pressure gradient, winds will
likely increase Sunday night reaching wind adv criteria and
continuing into Monday. Winds will lessen Monday night as high
pressure continues to build across the region. A week system might
impact the are on Wednesday bringing light snow showers. High
pressure builds in for Thursday, bringing drier conditions through
the end of the week.

Temperatures will be below seasonable levels through Thursday, then
bounce back to normal levels by the end of the week.

Aviation 02z Saturday through Wednesday
Vfr as high pressure builds from the great lakes through
Saturday morning, then moves off the new england coast
Saturday afternoon.

Nw-n winds this evening should become N and diminish this
evening, and at the outlying terminals winds will become light
and variable. By late Saturday morning winds will become e,
then SE during the afternoon, less than 10 kt.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
