Synopsis
A cold front moves across the region this evening. Weak high
pressure builds into the area thereafter late tonight into
memorial day. A warm front approaches late Monday night into
Tuesday. This warm front will remain just south into Wednesday
night as weak low pressure moves along the front just south of
long island. The front may lift through on Thursday, followed by
a cold frontal approach Thursday night. The front may linger
into Friday, then weak high pressure may build in later Friday
into Saturday before a series of weak disturbances approach and
pass through later in the weekend.

Near term until 6 am Monday morning
A cold front approaches closer to the region and it will move
across this evening. In the mid levels, the local region will be
in between a ridge to the southeast and a low in southeast
canada. There will be some decrease in geopotential height
tonight as the shortwave in southeast canada moves southeast and
relatively closer to northern new england.

Clouds increase going into this evening with showers and
thunderstorms moving in and developing from eastern pa into
parts of upstate ny. These are forecast to continue moving
southeast through the lower hudson valley, northeast nj, the
nyc metro area, western long island and southwest connecticut
through the evening hours. The convective activity is forecast
to be mostly southeast of the region and offshore after midnight.

The mesoscale models exhibit general agreement with this
convective timing. In terms of forcing, models are conveying
850-500mb bulk shear magnitude to increase across the western
sections of the region around 8pm this evening with roughly 35
to 45 kt of shear. The surface CAPE is expected to increase late
this afternoon into early this evening across these same areas
to a range of 500-1000 j kg. The models might be under
estimating this instability considering the model forecast high
temperatures compared to reality. Enough forcing seems to be
present from the forecast models to include enhanced wording of
gusty winds (up to around 40 mph) and small hail with some
thunderstorms. The forecast model soundings indicate inverted v
type shape with low levels showing decent mixing as well as the
presence of mid level dry air. Evaporative cooling would enhance
downdrafts of thunderstorms and lower the freezing level as
well making for a higher possibility of having hail. There is
some low level dry air with the lower dewpoints, which will
present a limiting factor to thunderstorm development and
enhancement.

The instability and forcing across the local area decrease after
midnight and shift farther south of the region. Behind the cold
front, winds will shift more northerly, allowing for drier air
to enter the region. Convective coverage across the region
becomes more isolated after 11pm and eventually diminishes
totally overnight.

In terms of numerical weather prediction models and particularly,
the mesoscale models, still the hrrr run from 6 hours ago shows
the current convection upstream from the local region better
than the latest run. The hrw nssl also depicts rather well the
current convection in that same area upstream.

There is a moderate risk of rip current development into early
evening.

Short term 6 am Monday morning through Monday night
A nearly steady height trend in the mid levels will be accompanied
by weak high pressure building in from the north and west.

For Monday, the drying trend continues with dewpoints about 5-10
degrees lower than the previous day. The northerly flow will help
promote these drier conditions. The winds will be weak so eventual
sea breeze circulations will likely occur during the afternoon hours.

Expecting a cooler day Monday with backing of winds from low to mid
levels and the several degrees cooler 850mb temperatures which
will be mixed down with daytime heating. A consensus of MOS was
utilized for the high temperature forecast, ranging mostly in
the mid to upper 70s.

The weak high will be moving northeast of the region Monday
night with a slight decrease in the height field in the mid
levels. There will be a warm front that will approach the region
late Monday night. Winds will be light and variable and clouds
for the first half of the night will be few to scattered
coverage before becoming more broken coverage overnight into
early Tuesday. There will be enough radiational cooling to make
for a relatively cooler night than the previous night, with
forecast lows ranging from mostly 50 to 60 degrees.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
Have made only minor changes to the previous forecast based on
model trends over the past 24 hours. Much of this week should
feature quasi-zonal flow aloft, with flat ridging to the south,
and a series of passing shortwave troughs along with a nearby
sfc warm front bringing inclement wx at times. The first of
these, with an approaching warm front on tue, will feature cool
conditions with highs only from the mid 50s to mid 60s, and
periods of showers, possibly elevated thunder as well Tue night.

This front should remain to the south through at least wed
night, and there are signs it may only lift through part of the
area on Thu per gfs, making the temperature forecast east of nyc
rather uncertain (60s vs 70s). A cold front should follow late
thu, and the trend calls for slower timing, which if it pans out
could limit potential for strong to severe tstms.

Forecast details become murkier going forward from Fri into the
weekend. GFS continues to lag the cold front behind on fri, so have
mentioned chance of showers and possibly a TSTM for the daytime hrs.

Dry wx seems likely to follow for Fri night into at most of Sat via
weak passing high pressure, but then with a broad upper longwave
trough setting up over eastern north america and continued train of
shortwave disturbances passing through it, have slight chance pop
for late day Sat int Sunday morning, and higher chances late Sunday
into Sunday night. Above normal temps appear to be the rule in this
time frame per MOS guidance.

Aviation 20z Sunday through Friday
A cold front approaches today and passes late this evening.

Main concern is for tsra over NE pa ny border as of 19z, working
into the nyc nj terminals between 21-24z. Strong wind gusts (40kt+)
are the main threat with any thunderstorms or a gust front from
weakening storms, with brief MVFR ifr possible. Cold front pushes
through late this evening, withVFR conditions late tonight into
Monday.

W winds 10-15 kt with gusts 20-25 kt for city and inland terminals.

Sw winds for south coastal terminals, except southerly sea breeze at
jfk. Winds shift to the NW by late evening, then N overnight into
Monday morning. Mon afternoon S SE seabreeze likely for south
coastal terminals.

Outlook for 18z Monday through Friday
Monday Vfr. Afternoon S SE sea breeze development.

Tuesday MVFR or lower in likely showers. E gusts to 20 kt
possible near the coast.

Wednesday Chance of MVFR or lower in showers thunderstorms,
mainly in the afternoon and evening. Easterly winds.

Thursday Chance of MVFR or lower in aft eve
showers thunderstorms.

Friday Chance of aft eve showers.

Marine
The pressure gradient is expected to remain relatively weak
through Monday night with conditions staying below SCA criteria.

Wind gusts are expected to remain near or below 20 kt. Ocean
seas are forecast to stay between 2 to 4 ft through tonight and
then between 2 to 3 ft Monday through Monday night. Non-ocean
waters are forecast to be around 1 ft or less through the short
term through Monday night.

Still expecting quiet conds with respect to prevailing
winds seas through the longer term. Tstms may also pose a hazard
at times during mid week, especially on thu.

Hydrology
Average rainfall amounts through tonight are less than a
quarter of an inch.

Only hydrologic impacts in short term would be any series of
thunderstorms that move across tonight. These would produce
locally higher amounts of rainfall and perhaps some brief minor
flooding. Otherwise no other hydrologic impacts expected.

Rainfall from late Mon night into Tue night should average from 1 2
to 3 4 inch. Up to another half inch may be possible late day thu
into Fri morning.

Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo35 (162.55 mhz) remains off
the air.
