Synopsis
High pressure settles over the western atlantic today as a warm
front passes well to the north through tonight. The offshore high
will dominate the weather on Friday into Saturday. A cold front
will slowly approach over the weekend and pass by late Sunday.

High pressure will then build in from the northwest through the
beginning of next week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
The fcst was on track with no major changes made. Middle and
upper level cloud cover continues to lift to the north and east.

These clouds as expected continue to thin and scatter out as we
head into the afternoon with just some scattered cumulus and
cirrus clouds expected for the remainder of the day.

High pressure moves over the western atlantic with a steadily
tightening pressure gradient into the afternoon. Increasing s-ssw
flow will result with sustained winds near the coast 15-25 mph with
gusts 30-35 mph. The strongest winds look to reside across long
island and southeastern connecticut this afternoon.

Temperatures are a bit tricky today due to increasing onshore
flow. Highs across the nyc metro, NE nj, and lower hudson
valley will likely reach the middle and upper 80s with long
island and southern connecticut in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

If stronger southerly flow takes shape sooner than expected,
much of long island and coastal connecticut may not make it out
of the 70s.

Dangerous rip currents are expected at the ocean beaches,
particularly in the afternoon and evening. A high rip current risk
remains in effect.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Friday
The main story for tonight will be increasing humidity levels and
much warmer temperatures than recent nights. A wave of low pressure
moves into the great lakes region with its associated warm front
settling across northern new england. Other than some weak short
wave energy, there is not much in the way of support for convection
tonight. Have confined slight chance pops to the interior where a
bit more elevated instability is progged to reside, but think the
night should largely be dry. Low temperatures in the upper 60s to
near 70 are forecast.

Ridging builds over the western atlantic on Friday. Temperatures and
humidity levels continue to increase with temperatures approaching
90 degrees in the nyc metro and NE nj and upper 80s across the
interior. Onshore flow will hold readings down into the upper 70s on
the immediate shore and lower 80s just inland across long island and
southern connecticut. Gusty s-ssw winds expected again, but not as
strong as Thursday, mainly 20-25 mph near the coast. Diurnal heating
is the only source for any convection with chance pops confided to
the NW interior.

Long term Friday night through Wednesday
An upr low over the canadian prairie Fri ngt will drop sewd and
reach lake superior by Sun ngt. This will begin to carve out SW flow
aloft thru the period across the fcst area. Under this flow regime,
the best chance for rain is generally across the interior, or even
just NW of the fcst area, until significant forcing reaches the
region. Because of this, pops were limited to 30 percent thru the
weekend. The wild card will be residual convective complexes which
would be capable of kicking off a round of rain and tstms. It will
be warm and humid over the weekend with a blend of model data used
for temps. Although the mainly sly flow will limit temps,
particularly across long island and ct, it will keep the humidity up
until a wly component is added by Sun ngt. The only reason fog was
not included ATTM is because the winds may not fall off sufficiently
overnight. Otherwise, the sly flow will keep the ocean choppy and
result in a continued rip risk thru at least sat.

The upr trof, based on the 00z ECMWF and GFS data, comes thru mon
and tue. This will provide some dpva and help to steepen lapse
rates, however it appears the deepest moisture will have been
shunted offshore by this point, allowing for only isold-sct coverage
of any shwrs and tstms. Pops were limited to 30 percent Mon and tue
because of this.

Wed looks to be between the departing upr trof and the next
approaching system. The fcst has been kept dry as a result.

Aviation 14z Thursday through Monday
High pressure drifts offshore through tonight.VFR conditions
expected. An initial light and variable to s-sw 5-10 kt wind
will increase to 10-20 kt with gusts mostly around 20-25 kt by
this afternoon with some peak gusts to near 30kt late this
afternoon into early this evening. Strongest and most southerly
winds expected at kjfk and klga. Winds decrease late tonight to
10-15 kt with gusts to 20 kt. However, there is forecast to be a
low level s-sw jet tonight just above the surface at 1-3kft of
40-45kt presenting the potential of low level wind shear. Winds
subside going into Friday.

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.
