Synopsis
High pressure track east across the western atlantic, while low
pressure over the southern states works northward through the
middle of the week. The low will lift across the area on
Wednesday. High pressure returns on Thursday with a wave of low
pressure passing near the area on Friday. A weak frontal system
on then moves through on Saturday followed by sprawling high
pressure builds in thereafter.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
Upper air pattern features a southern branch closed low working
slowly east across the tennessee valley, and an upper ridge
moving off the eastern seaboard. At the surface, high pressure
continues to work away from the area but there will be enough
low-level ridging overnight for a weak E SE flow. Low pressure
over the tennessee valley will lift slowly north.

Conditions will remain dry and just below seasonable levels for
overnight lows. Used a blend of the MOS with slight adjustments.

High level cloudiness ahead of the low will very slowly work
northeast. Depending on how fast the clouds and low level
moisture come in could result in some locations cooling more
quickly than others with some patchy fog as well.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through Wednesday
Models are in good overall agreement in taking low pressure
over the tennessee valley northeast through Wednesday, taking
the low near or just west of nyc late Wednesday. The ECMWF is on
the slower side of the guidance.

Clouds will overspread the area from the SW during the day with
light overrunning rains developing from west to east in the
evening and becoming steadier overnight. A strong low-level jet
will enhance warm advection rains toward daybreak, with the
possibility of a thunderstorm during the morning and afternoon
hours. The coverage will diminish in the afternoon and may
become more convective in nature. Instability aloft though is
marginal and not surface-based.

Rainfall totals will be highest from nyc and points north and
west due to orographic enhancement with a modest SE flow. Gusts
up to 30 mph will be possible along the coast. Amounts will
range form 0.75 inches far eastern areas to 1.25 in the hills
north and west of nyc. Should the upper trough become more
negatively tilted than forecast, these amounts will likely need
to be increased due to more offshore convection and warm
conveyor belts rains working into the region
highs on Tuesday will be a bit cooler due to the cloud cover
and onshore flow, but will be milder Tuesday night for the same
reason. Highs on Wednesday will be similar.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
There are some differences in the upper pattern right out of
the long term gate Wed night that continue through the remainder
of the period. The general h5 flow consists of troughing over
eastern north america giving way to western ridging during the
second half of the weekend or early next week.

Models begin with differences in location of the upper low,
ec cmc the slowest moving with the nam GFS the fastest. Given
the scenario, have sided with the slower moving, and thus have
pops continuing bust decreasing Wed night. A wave of low pres
tracks through or near the nyc metro area Wed night with a
temporary lull in winds during the eve. This combined with a
s-se flow could keep areas of fog around into the eve, but since
winds will be shifting to the s-sw, have only gone patchy attm.

Elevated instability also appears to be present during the eve,
although its marginal so have included schc thunder.

A few areas of rain may linger into thu, especially across
northern zones, otherwise dry weather returns into Fri with weak
sfc ridging building in.

A shortwave trough tracking through the plains midweek tracks
through the SE states Thu and up the east coast on fri. All nwp,
except the GFS keeps pcpn offshore, although 12z cmc and ec have
trended westward. Pcpn remains east of the area, but is closer,
thus have schc-chc pops in the forecast to account for this.

High uncertainty with a potential frontal system impacting the
area on sat. GFS is less amplified aloft, keeping energy
associated with trough axis well to the N while cmc ec are
sharper cut off at h5. Have gone with consensus for the time
being with a schc-chc pops. Deep layered ridging then builds in
behind this resulting in dry and warm weather into next week.

Near to slightly above normal temps are expected through the
period.

Aviation 21z Monday through Saturday
High pressure continues to drift off the southern new england
coast into Tuesday afternoon. Low pressure approaches from the
southwest late in the forecast period.

Vfr.

Winds se-sse around 10-12 kt through around sunset with winds
diminishing thereafter. At outlying terminals, winds become
light and variable.

Tuesday winds will again be SE to S and increase to 10-15 kt.

Occasional gusts 15-20 kt are possible toward 18z.

Ny metro enhanced aviation weather support...

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.
