High pressure will build and remain in control through early
next week.

Near term until 6 am Thursday morning
Still expecting a mainly clear night even with just a few
mid and high level clouds moving across overnight. Clouds were
adjusted slightly in the grids as well as the temperatures and
dewpoints. Radiational cooling will be efficient as winds are
light, so minimum temperatures were lowered a few degrees for
rural areas and the interior. The result will be a vast range of
lows from near 50 in some rural and interior places to upper
60s in much of nyc.

Short term 6 am Thursday morning through Thursday night
Daytime heating under mostly sunny skies on Thu should result
in development of a weak lee thermal trough, while a lobe of the
building high still manages to build just to the south over the
cooler ocean waters, allowing for afternoon coastal sea breezes
to develop. Meanwhile, sunshine deep mixing to about 800 mb, and
weak downslope flow should allow for temps to rise to the upper
70s and lower 80s.

An approaching upper trough Thu night with accompanying mid
level vort MAX and band of mid level moisture should produce
mostly cloudy skies and possibly some sprinkles. Specific timing
of these clouds and any sprinkles is still a little uncertain,
and if the slower 12z NAM is correct, would take place overnight
than a couple hours either side of midnight.

Low temps are slightly warmer than MOS guidance due to the cloud
cover, ranging from the mid 50s to mid 60s.

Long term Friday through Wednesday
High pressure will be centered over the great lakes region on Friday.

At the same time, an upper level trough axis will be right over us
in the morning. The flow aloft becomes less cyclonic through the day
as the trough shifts east, and with limited moisture, not expecting
any showers to develop. Highs mostly 75-80 across the area with
850mb temperatures around 9c.

Saturday will be mostly sunny with surface high pressure building
in and more of a zonal flow aloft. High temperatures likely at or
slightly below those of Friday with slightly cooler 850mb temps

The surface high will be centered more to our north by Sunday, and
similar to Friday we start the day with an upper trough axis over us
which shifts east through the day. Moisture is still limited, so
another dry and mostly sunny day. Highs in the mid to upper 70s.

High pressure will then be centered over new england on Monday and
Tuesday. This will continue the stretch of dry weather with mostly
sunny conditions and high in the mid and upper 70s.

There's a large spread among the global models regarding the
potential development and movement of a coastal low pressure system
during Wednesday. With high pressure likely to be centered somewhere
off the new england coast and a lack of a surface trough or cold
front for any sort of moisture entrainment, will go with the idea
that rain trying to move in here from the south remains suppressed.

Not a high confidence forecast this far out in time.

Aviation 02z Thursday through Monday
Vfr as high pressure builds in. NW winds become N tonight with
speeds under 10 kt. A surface trough develops over the area
Wednesday aftn which will result in a tricky wind forecast.

Boundary layer winds appear weak enough for seabreeze
development at coastal terminals, but most hi-res guidance is
indicating the sfc trough dominates the wind directions. Thus,
have decided against including seabreezes in the 00z tafs.

Outlook for 00z Thursday through Monday
Thursday-Monday Vfr.

High pressure will maintain quiet conditions through Sunday. The
pressure gradient may tighten and increase winds a little on
Monday due to a potential storm well the south, which may also
bring in an easterly swell. Ocean seas are still expected to
remain below advisory levels.

Dry through at least early next week.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
