Synopsis
High pressure will build in this weekend. A frontal boundary
will slowly move across late Sunday into Tuesday morning, with
weak areas of low pressure tracking along it. Another high will
then build in through the thanksgiving holiday.

Near term through tonight
Made some adjustments to forecast with a bit more low clouds
this afternoon. With a neutral to a slightly cyclonic flow
and west winds, typically don't see the clouds across the
interior expand eastward toward the coast. However, latest
guidance is showing high rh just below 5000 ft this afternoon.

Thus, the adjustment. Minor tweak to other parameters.

Quasi-zonal flow aloft will prevail through tonight. At the
surface, high pressure builds towards the area today, then over
new england tonight. For the most part expecting a mostly
sunny partly cloudy day under a westerly flow with highs in the
mid to upper 40s.

As the high builds over new england tonight winds will diminish
under mostly clear skies. A dry cold front trough is progged to
move across the area this evening. Mid and high-level clouds
should begin to increase during the overnight hours although
still should have good radiational cooling conditions. Lows are
expected to range from the mid to upper 20s across the interior
and pine barrens of long island to lower to mid 30s closer to
the coast.

Short term Sunday through Tuesday
Guidance is in good agreement with an amplifying pattern
developing across the lower 48 early next week as a piece of
the polar vortex breaks off and drops into hudson bay. This will
result in a developing longwave trough east of the rockies with
a high amplitude ridge to the west.

Sfc high pres shifts offshore on Sun as the entrance region of
an upper jet streak with weak shortwave energy tracks from the
ohio valley into new england. WAA will also ensure later Sun and
more so Sun night. This is expected to lead to the expansion of
precipitation north and west of nyc late Sun sun eve with a weak
sfc low passing through Mon morning. A frontal boundary will
then approach from the NW and slowly track across the area mon
into Tue bringing the potential for additional pcpn. Soundings
are initially indicating pcpn to begin as snow well inland sun
night, transitioning to rain by Mon morning with plain rain
throughout the entire event closer to the coast. There is some
uncertainty with the thermal profiles inland Mon night into
tue, the GFS is significantly colder than the nam, so this will
need to be monitored and adjusted as needed. Have leaned more on
the colder side for now.

Temperatures are expected to range between 5 and 10 degrees
below normal into the middle of next week.

Long term Tuesday night through Friday
The 500 mb trough axis moves through Tue eve. Have kept the
forecast dry, but it is not out of the question for a snow or
rain shower to occur as it passes.

High pressure then builds for midweek and will continue through
the thanksgiving holiday.

Temperatures through the long term will remain below average
with the coldest day being on Wednesday. Temperatures then
moderate towards the end of the week, but still remaining below
normal.

Aviation 16z Saturday through Wednesday
High pressure will slowly build from the nw. Bkn-ovcVFR cigs
from the nyc metros north west should scatter at least at the
nyc metros this afternoon.

Seeing some sporadic gusts over 20 kt in w-nw flow around the
nyc metros late this morning. Expect these to diminish going
into the afternoon, peaking at or just under 20 kt for the most
part through 21z-22z. Winds should diminish tonight, then veer
nw-n overnight.

Outlook for 12z Sunday through Wednesday
Sunday Vfr.

Sunday night-Monday night MVFR or lower conds possible in
rain or wintry mix. NW winds g15-20kt on Monday.

Tuesday MVFR or lower conds possible in rain or wintry mix
early, then becomingVFR.

Wednesday Vfr.

Marine
Sca cancelled for ocean zones west of moriches inlet this
afternoon with lingering seas around 5 ft to the east. Seas may
come down there as well by early to mid afternoon.

Winds and seas below advisory levels Saturday night through
Friday as only weak waves are expected to pass through and high
pressure remains in control most of the time.

Hydrology
Light QPF amounts, 1 10" to 1 3" with highest amounts north,
are expected Sun night into tue. No hydrologic issues are
expected through Friday.

Equipment
Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo35 (162.55 mhz) will remain off

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.
