Synopsis
A cold front will move slowly east across the area late tonight,
then stall just east of long island on Saturday. High pressure
will follow Saturday night through Tuesday. A cold front will
pass across the area Wednesday night followed by high pressure.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Heavy showers and thunderstorms are moving offshore. They produced
up to 4 inches of rain across the area earlier with 3.80 inches
reported by a spotter at east shoreham.

With precipitable water values up to 2.2 inches and a cold front
slowly approaching, a flash flood watch was issued for NE nj,
the metro nj nyc area, including rockland, westchester, and
nassau counties in ny and southern fairfield county in ct until
11 pm this evening.

Satellite imagery shows a SW NE dry slot advecting NE from va md
across SE pa, that should advect NE across the lower hudson
valley. This will increase sfc based and low lvl instability
resulting in the development of organized convection mainly aft
20z this afternoon from SW to ne.

The highest chc for severe wx will be from nyc N and w, where
spc placed this area under a slight risk. The greatest threat
is for damaging wind gusts. Stay tuned.

There is a moderate risk of rip currents at ocean beaches,
potentially becoming high this afternoon.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Saturday night
Models at times can struggle with the precipitation forecast
with the departure of large mid level ridges above 580dm. So,
forecast will adjust for this in situation where there is more
forcing and precip is too low and vice versa.

The upper level trough will be approaching the region tonight.

The height falls become more remarkable late tonight into
Saturday morning and this is when the trough moves eastward a
greater distance. The region will be getting closer to the right
entrance region of this jet. The trough amplifies and shortens
its wavelength during the day Saturday. 500mb heights lower
20-30 m from early morning until early evening. Vorticity still
increasing with height tonight and Sat looking at 925, 850, and
700mb levels.

Still have a threat of gusty winds and heavy rain with
thunderstorms tonight. High precipitable waters near 2 inches
still will be in place as will the vertical wind shear.

A cold front will continue to approach tonight. The cold front
moves into the region late tonight into Saturday but does not
totally clear the region until Saturday night.

However with aforementioned dynamics, pops still in place for
parts of the CWA during Sat evening with possibility for
isolated shower activity.

West to northwest flow behind the cold front later Saturday
night and continued ridging will promote mainly dry conditions.

Long term Sunday through Friday
Shortwave trough pivots northeast of the region on Sunday, with
generally zonal upper flow over the region for early to mid of next
week, between southern ridging and a closed low moving into hudson
bay.

At the surface, high pressure builds into the region Sunday, and
then gradually sinks south and east of the region Monday into
Tuesday. The result will be dry and seasonably warm conditions on
Sunday, giving way to increasing heat and humidity Mon into tue.

Perhaps some afternoon shower TSTM activity along a lee trough tue
afternoon depending on any energy sliding through the upper flow
aloft, but low predictability at this point.

Decent model agreement with shortwave energy digging into the great
lakes Tue into Tue night and then towards the NE us on wed. An
associated frontal system will bring the next chance for organized
shower and TSTM activity late Tue into wed.

Aviation 18z Friday through Wednesday
A cold front approaches late today.

Showers and thunderstorms have worked their way out of the city
and are across the eastern half of the terminals late this
morning. However, MVFR ifr ceilings continue in the wake. Some
improvement is likely this afternoon before another round of
showers and thunderstorms arrives around 21z. Thunderstorms are
likely this evening with the cold front approaching until about
01z. Gusty winds and heavy rain possible in any thunderstorm.

Southerly winds will increase this afternoon, mainly between 10
to 15 kts. Gusts to 25 kt possible across much of the region
this afternoon, but especially along the coast. Higher gusts
possible with any thunderstorm.

For tonight, fog stratus with MVFR or lower conds may linger
through the overnight.

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.
