Low pressure slowly tracks up along the eastern seaboard through
Wednesday night. Weakening low pressure along the new england coast
Wednesday night tracks northeast and up into the canadian
maritimes by the end of the week. A weakening frontal boundary
dissipates across the area on Friday, followed by another weak
frontal boundary moving into the area Saturday into Saturday
night. The latter of which stalls out nearby into early next

Near term /until 6 pm this evening/
High pressure to the north and low pressure along the carolina
coast has set up a maritime easterly flow. Warm front associated
with the low will gradually work northward today. As the upper
level low moves north along the eastern seaboard, moisture and
lift will increase through the day.

Stronger isentropic lift and deeper moisture work up the east
coast ahead of the low late this morning and into the afternoon.

The areas of rain have increased in coverage with some embedded
heavier rain moving across late this morning. The rain will still
be periodic in nature through today with some occasional lulls in

Fairly strong pressure gradient between the approaching low and high
to the north brings breezy easterly flow through the day with gusts
20-25 mph. Temperatures will be in the 50s.

Short term /6 pm this evening through Wednesday night/
Low level jet and a stacked coastal low will provide good lift
tonight for widespread moderate to locally heavy rainfall.

Precipitable waters increase to near 200% of normal with values 1.50
inches. Models have come into a little better agreement with
placement of heaviest qpf, but it is well known that QPF in models
can be erratic. A very moist airmass, slow moving stacked low, and
low level jet support around 0.50-0.75 inches of rain on average
across the area for the first half of the night. The low level jet
shifts to the east after 06z, which will focus the heaviest rain
across eastern long island and southern connecticut.

Some hints at weak elevated instability on bufkit soundings, but
have left thunder out of the forecast for now. Better instability
still looks to remain to the south and east.

On Wednesday, the stacked low will be slowly moving south and east
of long island. Rain will continue across eastern long island and
southeastern connecticut, tapering off into the afternoon. Due to
moisture wrapping around the low, cannot rule out light rain further
west as well.

The close proximity of the stacked low should keep low clouds
through the day and possibly some patchy fog, so have gone with
the cooler high temperatures in the lower 60s.

It still appears that the entire CWA will fall short of flash flood
and headwater guidance flooding for this event. See the hydrology
section below for more details.

Long term /Thursday through Monday/
A dissipating upper low lifts NE along the new england coast at
the onset of the period, otherwise a high amplitude upper ridge
will prevail along the east coast through early next week.

A series of weak frontal systems will converge upon the area,
the first on Friday, which likely dissipates across the area. A
backdoor cold front then may briefly drop south across the area
Saturday night with a confluent flow aloft and shortwave trough
moving over top the ridge across eastern canada. 00z ecmwf
support GFS with the backdoor cold front making it through, even
faster than the GFS on Saturday afternoon. Rain chances in both
cases are low with ridging aloft and a capping inversion in
place. Expect mainly showers, but an isolated thunderstorm is
not out of the question. Strong and/or severe convection is not
forecast at this time.

Front returns north as a warm front Sunday night into Monday
morning with a cold frontal passage Monday evening. There is the
potential for stronger convection along and ahead of the cold
front Monday.

Anomalous upper ridge off the east coast over the the weekend
into early next week will result in above normal temperatures
and muggy conditions, with readings generally in the 70s and
possibly the lower 80s, warmest across the interior. Conditions
will be cooler along the immediate coast. Sunday and Monday may
cool down a bit behind the backdoor cold front.

Aviation /14z Tuesday through Saturday/
Low pressure slowly moves up along the mid-atlantic coastline today
and tonight.

Conditions gradually deteriorate through the TAF period.

Generally expect ifr CIGS and visibilities, with lifr possible
at times through tonight. Intermittent rain, locally moderate to
heavy at times today should lighten late tonight.

East/northeast winds prevail, with speeds in the 15 to 20 kt range.

Gusts will range 20 to 30 kt today and into tonight. Gusts
should become less frequent overnight tonight.

Llws is possible this evening with SE winds 45-50 kt at 2kft, mainly
east of nyc terminals.

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.
