1023 am edt Fri jun 23 2017

A warm front will be well north of the region today. A cold
front approaches tonight and moves across the area Saturday. A
series of frontal boundaries will move across the tri-state area
Sunday through Tuesday. A large area of high pressure builds in

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Adjusted pops for showers late this morning into start of
the afternoon to be more confined with the higher coverage
towards nyc and to the north and west. This is consistent with
the mesoscale models forecast of reflectivity in the same time
window. To the east, expecting mainly dry conditions to
continue. Temperatures were adjusted slightly higher to better
match observed trends this morning. Otherwise, no other
remarkable changes made to the forecast database.

The region will be between bermuda ridging and deepening
northern stream longwave trough across the north central us
today... With one distinct southern stream shortwave riding
northeast this morning and then several weaker vorts riding
northeast later today. At the surface... A warm front washes
out pushes north of the region this morning... With likely pre-
frontal trough development in the lee of the appalachians this

Deep southwest flow with sub-tropical connection will result in
an increasingly moist and humid airmass working into the region

The initial shortwave rides north through the region this morning
into early afternoon. LLJ forcing weakens as this activity works
towards the region... But a marginally unstable and moist airmass in
place should support scattered shower and isolated thunderstorm
activity to work northeast through the region. Overall appears
to be a marginal instability with moderate shear
situation... Which presents only a low probability of an
isolated strong to severe storm.

In the wake of this shortwave... Potential for partial clearing and
additional destabilization late this afternoon early evening across
nyc metro and points n&w. Although moderate instability uni-
directional shear levels could exists during this time... Appears to
be lack of a distinct focus or trigger for convection until the
evening. In fact... Subsidence and weak mid-level capping may
limit convective activity across the region until late. Based on
instability shear environment there is a threat for isolated
strong to severe storms during this time... Conditional on
sufficient heating and development along any differential
heating boundaries or elevation.

Otherwise... Considerable cloudiness and convective debris today
will keep temps in the lower to mid 80s for most of the region.

If enough breaks in the clouds materialize... Temps could rise
into the upper 80s across nyc metro and points n&w.

There is a moderate risk of rip current development today, due
to building southerly winds waves and a 2 ft long period se

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Saturday
Northern stream longwave trough continues to deepen into the
upper mississippi river valley and great lakes through the
period... With the shortwave remnants of cindy shearing northeast
towards the region late tonight into Saturday morning. At the
surface... A cold front over the great lakes will slide east
towards the region tonight... With the remnant circulation of
cindy riding NE towards the region along the front.

Leading edge of southern stream shortwave energy and pre-
frontal trough approach the region this evening. Will have to
watch for convection developing over central eastern pa this
afternoon... And whether line segments can translate east in the
moderate mid- level flow into the lower hudson valley NE nj
before instability begins to wane. A conditional low threat for
severe winds gusts exists mainly NW & W of nyc if this activity

The parade of shortwaves late evening into the overnight and
tropical airmass will keep a threat for iso convection with
heavy downpours overnight. Coastal stratus fog development
possible with high dewpoint airmass advecting across E LI se
ct late today this evening.

Main concern during this period will be approach of cold front
and remnant low of cindy late tonight Saturday morning.

Environment presents a threat for flash flooding along and just
to the south of the path of this low... With pwats in excess of
2+ inches and corfidi vectors indicating potential for slow
moving or back building convective elements. Also can't rule out
an isolated severe wind tornado threat if any MCS type activity
develops in a weak instability but high shear helicity and low-
lcl environment.

745am update... 06z guidance is indicating that this feature may
track to the south of the region. If 12z guidance continues
with this theme... The above mentioned severe flash flood threat
may end up south of the region.

Drying conditions in the wake of the cold front and cindy
circulation Saturday afternoon... With highs in the mid to upper

A high risk of rip current is likely Saturday with building
southerly swells and wind waves.

Long term Saturday night through Thursday
Nwp is in agreement that a broad upper level trough will remain east
of the rockies into early next week. The h5 flow then flattens from
west to east as a cutoff low pres system moves through the western
canadian provinces... Eventually consolidating with a vortex over
northern quebec. This will sharpen the trough with its axis passing
through Tue night followed by weak ridging for the remainder of the
forecast period.

In terms of sensible weather... Not a whole lot to talk about. A
few cool frontal boundaries will pass through the local
area... The first Sunday aftn eve with just a chance of isold
showers. Mid level warming will keep instability in check so no
tstms in the forecast.

The second boundary approaches on Monday and is very slow to
move through the area. It may become hung up... Before pushing
east Tue night. Despite a decent shortwave and being in the rrq
of a 120+ kt upper jet... Moisture looks very meager... Thus have
kept the forecast dry. Moisture is still limited on tue... But
there could be enough for isold showers tstms in the aftn.

Dry and seasonable weather then returns for the remainder of the
forecast period.

Aviation 14z Friday through Tuesday
A warm front moves well north of the region today establishing
a moist SW flow.

MainlyVFR. Areas of MVFR are possible later today with CIGS around
2500 ft and shra moving through for the late morning and early
afternoon. There is also some potential for eastern terminals to
briefly go to MVFR in the late afternoon due to low stratus. For now
the tafs indicateVFR because coverage is in question and too
uncertain at this time. More widespread subVFR conditions are
expected late in the TAF period.

There will be a chance of isold-sct shwrs thru the day (Friday),
with the best potential for thunderstorms after 19z, particularly
in areas along and west of the hudson river.

The sea breeze may attempt to back winds closer to the south
again after 16z today for eastern terminals.

A chance at perhaps scattered thunderstorm coverage towards the
evening push for the city terminals.

Ny metro enhanced aviation weather support...

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
