Synopsis
Low pressure approaches from the south and west, then redevelops to
our south and passes to the south and east late tonight into Monday
morning. High pressure briefly returns for Tuesday, followed by
another low pressure system for Wednesday into Thursday. High
pressure then returns for Thursday night into Friday.

Near term until 6 am Monday morning
Forecast mainly on track, with light snow beginning to move into
western portions of the region this evening. 18z guidance
indicating best frontogenetic forcing moving through interior
portions of lower hudson valley and southern connecticut
tonight, with potential for 3 to 5 inches across that region,
and 2 to 4 inches for coastal ct, lower hud and interior NE nj.

Likely transition to a wintry mix of light snow and fzra
towards daybreak as mid-level begin to dry but ample low-level
moisture remains ahead of approaching shortwave. A light glazing
of ice on top of snow covered roads likely for the morning
commute in this advisory area.

Meanwhile, for LI and nyc nj metro, this area may be in between
two best frontogenetic zones to the N and S overnight, with
generally around an inch of snow. Much of this will likely fall
by 2 am, before transitioning to a wintry mix. A brief
transition to freezing rain possible for north shore of li, and
nw suburbs of nyc nj metro, with onshore flow slow to increase
until after 09z, prompting a changeover to plain light rain and
drizzle by daybreak as surface temps warm above freezing.

Otherwise... Another quick moving storm system for tonight into
Monday morning. Start time looks to be between 0 to 3z for the
most part, perhaps far eastern areas get going closer to 4z or
so. Precipitation type looks to be snow at the start everywhere,
with a transition to ice pellets mixed with snow closer to and
just after midnight for the city and southwestern section of the
cwa, with the transition being more gradual to the east-
northeast.

Vertical motion not very impressive for much of the CWA with
this system, with more lift being focused along the far
northern, northeastern edge of our CWA and up into new england.

Due to the overall lack of overwhelming low level warm advection
and the 500 mb confluence zone over SE canada holding through
about 9z, the concern is that some light freezing rain and
drizzle for just and hour or two into the early part of the
Monday morning commute, possibly as far south as coastal ct and
the north shore of li.

Should be slippery and treacherous travel across most, if not
all zones regardless.

Short term 6 am Monday morning through Monday night
Only low level moisture will remain into the first half of
Monday with any snow and ice tapering off early across far
northeastern sections of ct, and some leftover drizzle and light
rain for the remainder of the cwa. May take a little while to
clear out during Monday afternoon, but increasing cold air
advection should aid in drying and clearing things out by the
late afternoon. Temperatures will drop well below average into
Monday night with teens north and northwest, with widespread
lower 20s closer to the coast, with some single digit and lower
teen wind chills late at night and early Tuesday morning. Winds
may briefly gust to 30 mph in some locations during Tuesday
evening as the storm intensifies and pulls away out over the
atlantic.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
The region transitions under a confluent upper flow Tue into wed,
between upper ridging south of bermuda and polar low sliding across
central quebec and canadian maritimes. At the surface, canadian high
pressure builds overhead on Tuesday into Tuesday night and then
slides eastward Wednesday.

Region comes more under the influence of the southern stream
midweek, as early week SW us trough shears eastward towards the
great lakes and new england, while SW troughing is reinforced once
again. In the SW flow aloft, weak southern stream energy lifts up
towards the region Tue night into wed, with associated southern low
gradually approaching Wed and tracking near the region thu. Although
forcing with this system does not look to be overly strong, deep
layered lift ahead of shortwave and right rear of 175+ kt llj
combined with gulf tap of 2-3 +std pwats is trending towards a
moderate precip event for late Wed into Thu morning. Thermal
profiles appear cold enough to start as all snow Wed wed eve, then
gradually transitioning to wintry mix interior and all rain
city coast Wed night into Thu morning, before gradually tapering off
thu afternoon as mid-level shortwave passes. Too early to talk about
snow ice amounts, but potential for a light snow sleet accumulation,
before transition to rain city coast, and some icing interior.

Thereafter, generally zonal pac influenced upper flow for late week
into the weekend, lending to slightly above seasonable temps. Next
feature of interest will be the timing amplitude of the late week sw
trough as it ejects eastward across the country this weekend.

Considerable timing spread exists, as well as degrees of interaction
with northern stream. With available gulf moisture, this energy will
likely bring the next chance of significant precip from low
pressure s. At this point too much uncertainty in evolution to
diagnose p-types.

Aviation 00z Sunday through Friday
An area of low pressure approaches this evening, then impacts
the terminals overnight into Monday.

Light SE winds will continue this evening. Winds will shift to
the E as the wintry mix develops overnight and then NE by day
break. The flow will become NW by Monday afternoon and increase
into Monday evening becoming gusty, 20-30 kt.

Vfr through 03z. Conditions will lower to MVFR and ifr
overnight as a wintry mix develops. Precipitation tapers of to
a drizzle Monday morning with gradual improvement into the
evening. The precipitation type is expected to rapidly
transition to rain by 09z at nyc terminals and kisp. Elsewhere,
a wintry mix including a few hours of -fzdz, especially at
kswf, khpn and kbdr may be possible into the late morning.

Conditions should gradually improve Monday afternoon.

There is the potential for 2 to 3 inches of snowfall overnight at
kswf with 1 to 2 inches most elsewhere. Lowest totals expected
for nyc terminals and kisp where an around inch is forecast
before changing to rain.

Outlook for 00z Tuesday through Friday
Monday night into Tuesday Vfr. NW winds g20-30kt for the
evening into overnight, diminishing early Tuesday morning.

Wednesday Snow possible with MVFR or lower conditions in the
afternoon and evening, changing to a wintry mix at night.

Thursday MVFR or lower in a wintry mix inland and rain at the
coast in the morning. NW gusts 15-20 kt possible in the evening.

Friday Vfr.

Marine
Low pressure approaches from the southwest, passing to the
south and east late tonight into Monday. Sub SCA conditions are
expected tonight through much of the day on Monday, before
winds and seas increase later Monday afternoon. SCA conditions
will then return to the ocean waters, and the eastern sound and
eastern bays during Monday night. This will be a short-lived
event though as high pressure quickly builds into the waters on
Tuesday with conditions falling below sca.

The next chance for SCA conds will likely be Wed night through
thu night with the next low pressure system moving over the
waters.

Hydrology
There are no hydrologic concerns through the end of the week.

Tides coastal flooding
A low pressure system tracking to the south of the region
tonight into Monday, and a full moon on the 19th, will combine to
bring localized minor coastal flooding during the Monday morning
high tide.

Affected areas will be the most vulnerable locales of the south
shore bays of queens and nassau county, W long island sound, and
along lower ny nj harbor.

Surge of 1 to 1 1 2 ft and, locally 2 ft, is needed for minor flood
thresholds to be reached.

Equipment
Nyc central park winds are out of service until further notice.

Loss of data is due to a severed cable. Parts are on order.

Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo35 (162.55 mhz) will remain off
the air for an extended period of time.
