Low pressure over the canadian maritimes will move farther away
tonight, as high pressure to the west moves across tonight into
early Saturday. A warm front will lift to the north later
Saturday, then a strong cold front will approach Saturday night,
and sweep sweep eastward Sunday morning as strong low pressure
passes to the north. A few weather disturbances are possible
later next week.

Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
Drier air was moving into the interior sections as dew points
fall into the teens. Updated dew points and sky cover through
this evening. Winds were slowly diminishing early this evening
with the loss of heating. Fairly good radiational cooling
conditions overnight should lead to a wide range of low

Short term 6 am Saturday morning through Sunday
Main concern will be an intensifying low moving into the ohio
valley Sat morning, then across the lower great lakes Sat night
and into the st. Lawrence valley in Sunday. An associated warm
front will lift north of the area daytime sat, with some showers
moving into the area from nyc north west in the afternoon. The
pressure gradient between the departing high and the approaching
low will quickly tighten up, with s-sw winds gusting to 25-30
mph in most places, and as high as 35 mph across long island.

Main impacts ahead of and following a strong cold trailing the
low expected Sat night into Sunday, with s-sw winds increasing
further and a band of moderate to heavy showers sweeping across
with the front overnight. Models show fairly good low level
mixing with MAX boundary layer winds from 40-55 kt, highest
across eastern long island and SE coastal ct. Do not think the
full complement of these winds will mix down to the surface, but
gusts up to 35 mph are likely inland, 40-45 mph in nyc metro
and along most of the coastline, and 50-55 mph across eastern
long island. Confidence level in seeing winds over 60 mph is not
quite high enough to warrant a high wind watch for eastern
coastal sections, but this could change with later forecasts.

Will have to watch band of moderate to heavy showers with the
cold front itself for best low level momentum transfer on the
western fringe of the low level jet.

Winds could abate somewhat right after cold fropa, then should
pick up from mid morning into the afternoon after the passage of
a strong mid level vort max, via strong downward momentum
transfer of w-nw 40-kt h9 winds to the surface, with gusts up to
or just over 45 mph likely during this time frame.

Long term Sunday night through Friday
A broad area of high pressure will build into the region Monday
and Tuesday. This will produce fair weather. Superblend was
used for temperatures except for Monday night, where mex was
used to better capture radiational cooling.

Wednesday remains a bit of a question. A cold front will be
approaching from the west. In addition, there remains the
suggestion that some semblance of a coastal low will develop.

The 12z GFS is way off the southeast coast and not a factor. The
12z ECMWF is trending west and now produces a solid swath of
rain across the area. The forecast has been trended towards the
ecmwf, with low chances for precipitation included for all
areas. The rain would help to suppress high temperatures as
well. The cooler superblend was used as a result.

The cold front comes through Wednesday night. The ECMWF is much
different than the gfs, which pours the cold air into the
region. The ECMWF keeps the coldest air locked to the north of
the area, most likely due to the dynamics of the strengthening
offshore low. A blend of the models was used, however depending
on how the pattern ultimately develops, thanksgiving
temperatures could end up being roughly plus or minus 5 degrees
from the current forecast for highs. All solutions are dry for
the day however, followed by a continuation of the dry weather
on Friday.

The GFS does spin up a low along the subtropical jet and tracks
it east of the area on Friday. The ECMWF spins up something
similar on Saturday. This feature will need to be watched for
any westward trend.

Aviation 23z Friday through Wednesday
High pressure slides east of the region tonight into Saturday,
with a low pressure system approaching from the west.

Vfr through Saturday morning, with increasing potential for
rain showers and MVFR or lower conds developing late Sat into
sat evening.

Winds subside quickly through this evening. Southerly winds
increase Saturday morning into early Saturday afternoon. Sw
winds 15 to 20 kt with gusts 25 to 30 kt likely for coastal
terminals Saturday aft eve.

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 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.
