Synopsis
High pressure will build towards the region today, and over the
area on Wednesday. A weak cold front passing by early Friday
will be followed by a warm front moving north early Saturday. A
stronger frontal system will approach for the late weekend,
moving offshore on Monday.

Near term through tonight
A 1031 high over the midwest will build towards the region
today. A very dry airmass with pw S around a tenth of an inch
will settle in. Deep mixing is expected with the dry air,
increasing subsidence and nly flow. Used the 800mb level for a
rough idea on temps, but mixing could even be higher per model
time heights. Added a few degrees to the nbm as a result.

The high will build over WRN ny state and pa tngt. Nearly ideal
radiational cooling conditions, so the fcst was lowered a
degree below a blend of the met and mav. The most likely spots
for winds to stay up would be along the immediate coasts,
particularly li, limiting the low temp potential.

Short term Wednesday
High pres builds right over the region, then offshore in the
aftn. The light flow will gain an onshore component as a result.

Ssts on the ocean about 41 degrees. It will therefore be a
cooler day with reduced mixing due to the position of the high,
then the developing cool flow off the atlc. Outside of that
however, it will be a sunny day.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
High pressure will move east on Thursday as a weakening cold front
approaches from the west into Thursday night. Warm southerly air
will be advected in ahead of the front which seems to get hung up
just to the west. This will allow temperatures to rise into the mid
and upper 50s during the day on Thursday with temperatures in the
lower 50s along the coast.

Latest model guidance continues to suggest a disconnect between the
parent low and the dragging cold front Thursday night but perhaps a
few showers hold together. Therefore kept a slight chance pops in
the forecast, with the best shower chances being to the nw.

Temperatures will fall into the 40s.

Overall continued WAA will allow afternoon highs to rise into the
60s away from the coast on Friday, and potentially into the lower
70s on Saturday. Long island and southern ct will still feel that
chill in the air as temperatures are likely to remain in the 50s.

Attention then turns to a cold front approaching from the west on
Sunday. However, there still remains timing and amplitude
differences in the upper level pattern, which will determine what
sensible weather impacts this front will have. Overall, rain chances
increase during the day on Sunday.

High pressure then builds in from the west on Monday with cooler
temperatures.

Aviation 08z Tuesday through Saturday
High pressure builds in from the north and west through the taf
period withVFR conditions expected. Skies will be mainly clear
during the TAF period.

Northerly winds pick up to near 10-15 kt leading into this morning
with gusts first developing for nyc terminals and then for the rest
of the terminals for the morning and early afternoon. Gusts are
expected to be near 20 kt. Winds become more NW this afternoon and
subside going into early this evening to a 5-10 kt range.
