Synopsis
High pressure builds across the area today. A low pressure
system tracks south of the area late tonight then moves offshore
Thursday. High pressure briefly builds over the region Thursday
through Friday. Low pressure passes southeast of the region
Friday night into Saturday, followed by a second wave of low
pressure late Sunday and Monday. High pressure briefly builds
over the region Monday night, followed by another chance of
unsettled weather for mid-week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Dry, cold and windy conditions expected today as high pressure
builds into the area. Highs today will be in the upper 20s to
lower 30s. Wind gusts will remain just below advisory levels
through much of the day with wind gusts of up to 40 mph. This
will make temperatures feel colder with wind chills in the teens
to around 20.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Thursday
Winds are forecast to diminish tonight, as high pressure moves
across the area. Temperatures tonight will be in the upper teens
to low to mid 20s. A clipper will then approach late tonight
from the ohio valley, tracking just south of long island through
Thursday. There will be enough cold air in place to support an
all snow event from late tonight into early Thursday morning.

Precipitation amounts will be light with mainly less than an
inch expected. High temperatures on Thursday will be in the
upper 20s to mid 30s. Precipitation is expected to end by
Thursday afternoon as the clipper moves further offshore.

Long term Thursday night through Tuesday
The long term period starts off with weak high pressure over the
region Thursday night into Friday. 13 00z forecast guidance
indicating a shortwave upper level low diving out of canada and
moving over the region Friday night into Saturday. As it does, a
surface low develops, passing well offshore. Thinking at this point,
that most of the region stays dry, but can not rule out a slight
chance of some snowflakes across the twin forks of LI and eastern
ct.

Weak high pressure and ridging then briefly builds back over the
region Saturday night into Sunday, allowing temperatures to rebound a
bit back to more seasonable levels. Another weak wave of low
pressure slides across region late Sunday through Monday. Both the
ecmwf and GFS capture this system, however the ECMWF is a bit more
robust with its precipitation. Also, there are some slight timing
issues with just how quickly the system moves into and out of the
region. With the warmer temperatures in place, do expect
precipitation to be either rain or a rain snow mix along the coast,
with temperatures cold enough for some light snow inland.

Temperatures do warm enough on Monday for precipitation to
become rain everywhere.

Dry conditions then expected Monday night into the first part of
Tuesday. Additional light precipitation is then possible Tuesday
afternoon into Tuesday night as another shortwave slides across the
region. A few left over rain or snow showers will be possible on
Wednesday, however for now will keep conditions dry as weak high
pressure starts to build southwest of the region.

Aviation 09z Wednesday through Sunday
Vfr today as low pressure pulls into the canadian maritimes.

MVFR conditions or lower are possible tonight in snow as
another area of low pressure approaches from the west, generally
after 05z. Less than an inch of accumulations is possible
during this time frame.

As for winds, W winds of 20 to 25 kt true, with gusts near to
slightly above 35 kt. There could be some occasional gusts of 40
kt or slightly higher. Best timing for the strongest gusts is 13z
to 21z. Thereafter, gusts should slowly diminish through the
rest of the TAF period.

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.
