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
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
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.

system, with upper ridging still to the west even by late day
thu. Have therefore kept daytime Thu mostly sunny and dry, with
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
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.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
