Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
A back door cold front lingering southeast connecticut and
eastern long island will gradually dissipate overnight as high
pressure otherwise dominates. A weak low pressure trough will
develop over western portions of the region on Saturday. Another
back door cold front will pass through Saturday night into
Sunday morning, becoming nearly stationary just to the south and
west through memorial day. Another cold front will follow from
the west on Tuesday.

Near term until 6 am Friday morning
Fog low cloud bank over SE coastal ct and along the south fork
of long island on the cool side of the back door front should
spread gradually north and west into this evening with the aid
of onshore flow and late day evening cooling, then dissipate
overnight as SW flow strengthens. Before then, the fog may
become locally dense right along shorelines.

Lows tonight will be in the lower mid 60s in near nyc, with 50s
elsewhere.

Short term 6 am Friday morning through Friday night
A flat upper ridge will dominate aloft, with offshore sfc high
pressure and a week inland trough. With h8 temps increasing to
near 15c and h5-10 thicknesses near 570 dm, expect a very warm
day, with highs reaching 90 in NE nj and in the valleys well nw
of nyc, with mid upper 80s elsewhere away from south facing
shores. With a very dry air mass in place, heat index values
will actually be several deg lower than air temps.

Lows Fri night should be near 70 in nyc and in the 60s
elsewhere.

Long term Saturday through Thursday
A polar low over greenland and associated trough across SE canada
will slowly slide east through the weekend, while bermuda ridging
builds off the SE coast. The local region will be in between these
two features, with broad but weak northern stream shortwave energy
over the us canadian plains gradually sliding shearing east towards
the NE us through the weekend, as well as vort energy rotating
around the bermuda ridge.

At the surface, lee trough development is expected on Saturday. A
modestly unstable and sheared environment, with increasing vort
energy in the mid level flow, should lend to afternoon
shower thunderstorm development west of the hudson river. Main
threat will be torrential downpours in increasingly moist airmass,
but can't rule out a few strong to severe storms in this regime as
well. Question is timing of trigger. Any convective shower activity
should slide eastward through the late afternoon evening but weaken
overnight with diminishing instability and maritime influence.

Temperatures should be quite warm on Saturday with increasing
humidity as well. Highs should be well into the 80s away from the
south coasts, and upper 70s to around 80 at the coast.

Then decent agreement on a backdoor cold front approaching Sat eve
and then pressing across the region Saturday night into Sunday
morning. The front, interacting with the sub-tropical environment in
place, should increase the coverage of shower activity Sat night
into Sun morning, but thunderstorm activity should decrease after
the evening hours as instability diminishes. Locally heavy downpours
are the main threat in this environment.

The region will then transition to a cooler canadian maritime
airmass on Sunday into Monday, as high pressure builds southward
across new england. Subsidence and stable airmass may keep
shower sprinkle activity rather limited by Sun afternoon and
continuing through Monday, but stratus will likely hang tough Sunday
into at least Monday morning with low-level inversion. Potential for
some breaks of Sun heading into Monday afternoon as
northern southern stream trough energy begins to slide east.

Fairly good agreement on next northern stream shortwave amplifying
into quebec Monday night into Tuesday, with ridging beginning to
build into the region through midweek. At the surface, a cold front
crosses the region Tuesday morning with canadian high pressure
building into the region in its wake. Forcing appears limited with
this frontal passage, but some uncertainty on instability, which
warrants a low chance for isolated shra tsra. Otherwise, appears high
pressure builds into the region for midweek with dry and near to
above seasonable temps.

Aviation 21z Thursday through Tuesday
A weak back door cold front will linger across eastern long
island and southeast connecticut into this evening. Otherwise,
high pressure dominates through Friday.

MainlyVFR conditions through the TAF period. The only exception
is lifr or ifr conditions in stratus and fog across southeast
connecticut and the forks of long island. There is a low chance
that it spreads near kbdr and kisp this evening. Will continue
to monitor trends.

Ssw-s winds around 10 kt into this evening at most terminals
except inland where winds may remain light nw. Winds will
diminish this evening and become light and variable outside of
city terminals.

Sw winds increase to 10-15 kt with gusts 20-25 kt Friday
morning into Friday afternoon.
