Synopsis
High pressure builds in today and moves offshore on Thursday. A
warm front, associated with low pressure over the great lakes,
will then approach Thursday night, and move through on Friday. A
slow moving cold front will approach from the west on Friday,
and move across on Saturday. High pressure will then build in
the region for the start of the new work week, and pass off the
coast on Tuesday as a cold front approaches from the northwest.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Fog has burned off across the area. Expect quiet conditions
across the area. Minor update to temperatures and dewpoints to
reflect current conditions otherwise, no significant changes to
the forecast.

Looking at a mostly sunny day with a drying downslope NW flow,
though immediate south facing coastal areas may still see a late
day sea breeze. GFS nam differ on depth of mixing for today,
but taking a compromise and adding 2-3 degrees this afternoon
for downslope flow, expect high temps around 90 just west of
nyc, upper 80s in the rest of the city and immediate suburbs,
and mid 80s elsewhere. Afternoon dewpoints falling off to 60-65
should keep MAX heat index values just below 90.

A high rip current risk will continue today for the ocean
beaches as the largest swells from distant hurricane gert
arrive. For details on gert, please refer to national hurricane
center products.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Thursday
A dry and tranquil night is in store for tonight with high
pressure remaining in control. Lows will be in the 60s in most
coastal locations, and mid upper 50s inland and in the long
island pine barrens region.

Have sided with a slower model trend with an approaching frontal
system, with upper ridging still to the west even by late day
thu. Have therefore kept daytime Thu mostly sunny and dry, with
highs 80-85.

Long term Thursday night through Tuesday
With upper ridging remaining to the west of the region early
Thursday night, an upper shortwave and surface warm front will
be slower to affect the area, and as a result have delayed the
onset of precipitation until after 00z Friday, and then with
only slight chance probabilities coming into the far western
zones. Also, with the surface low remaining well to the west,
then warm front will remains well to the southwest with little
forcing across the region through 06z Friday. And with little
cape will have mention of showers but not thunder.

Portions of the area become warm sectored Saturday, mainly inland,
as the warm front moves through the region during the day. A
supporting shortwave rotates through a longwave trough to the west
and north during Friday into Friday night, and the surface low
tracks north of the great lakes. Probabilities for precip
increase as the cold front moves into the warm and unstable
air mass later Friday and Friday, with likely probabilities. At
this time CAPE is several hundred j kg and will mention a chance
of thunder.

The surface cold front moves east 09z to 15z Saturday. However,
there will be another shortwave rotating into the longwave
trough, and the probability of precipitation remains until
toward 12z Sunday.

On Sunday the upper flow becomes more zonal as weak ridging
builds. The northern stream remains progressive and the next
shortwave approaches for late Tuesday and Tuesday night.

Aviation 14z Wednesday through Sunday
High pressure builds in today withVFR.

Nw winds increasing to around 10 kt. Winds should prevail north
of 310 magnetic most of the day. Occasional gusts to mid teens
possible this afternoon. Afternoon sea breezes expected for
kjfk kisp kbdr kgon.

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.
