A potent storm will move up the coast and impact the area,
especially late tonight as the associated low pressure center
passes to the west. A frontal boundary will remain west of the
region through much of the week, with an extended period of
unsettled weather with the chance of showers and thunderstorms
Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
Forecast on track this evening with just a few minor adjustments
to reflect latest observations. Otherwise, warm core non-
tropical low was moving along the DELMARVA coast at 01z. Bands
of convection were moving into the northern nj coast and south
of long island, some of the cells had very weak rotation, along
with some higher wind gusts.
Latest hrrr brings a strong wind core with gusts 50-60 kt up to
the south shore of nyc and nassau. So a wind advy continues
for western coastal sections for tonight based on that
guidance, along with GFS lamp guidance forecasting advy criteria
sustained winds to 30 kt at bridgeport ct, and close to advy
criteria at kjfk. If latest runs of hrrr are correct there is
still a chance that the advy for the south shore harbor and
ocean locations may have to be upgraded to a high wind warning,
especially if winds take on a more SE vs E component.
Next concern is rainfall. Operational ECMWF hrrr have been
forecasting heavy rain bands capable of producing a quick 2-3
inches of rain either just west of or straddling our NE nj
counties, also additional similar rain bands run through parts
of western long island, the lower hudson valley, and SW ct. Have
higher confidence in the location of the westernmost band but
not those farther east, and since their coverage is not
widespread and href probabilities of 2+ inches of rain was
greatest just west of our area, opted against issuing a flash
flood watch. Depending on where these bands set up, will most
likely have to issue minor flood advisories, but will still have
to watch nyc closely for greater impacts to urban
infrastructure and possible flash flood warnings to address any
direct impact of that magnitude.
As these rain bands ride up into long island and southern ct,
combo of strong 0-1 km shear SRH and sfc-based instability with
sbcape approaching 1000 j kg may be enough to help produce low-
topped tstms capable of producing localized damaging winds or
a brief tornado.
A high rip current risk continues for the ocean waters.
Short term 6 am Sunday morning through Sunday night
By daybreak on Sunday, the heaviest rain should lift mainly
into eastern ct long island. As tropical moisture continues to
stream northward, chances for showers and isolated thunderstorms
increase into the afternoon and at night.
Temperatures will be near normal or a few degrees below average.
A high risk of rip currents is expected for Sunday.
Long term Monday through Saturday
Unsettled weather expected for the much of the long term period.
An upper level trough and surface front remain nearly stalled west
of the CWA as an atlantic ridge remains offshore.
Periods of showers and thunderstorms will remain likely through at
least the first part of Monday night, especially west of nyc. Pops
then lower on Tuesday and Tuesday night as the upper ridge pushes
back to the west. There does remain some uncertainty with this
feature and kept probabilities across the eastern zones slight
chance and kept chance probabilities to the west of nyc.
An upper level low moving across central canada on Wednesday slides
into the great lakes region by Thursday night. This will push the
trough and front closer to the region, with pops increasing once
again through this period. Its nearly impossible this far out to
time any showers and or thunderstorms and will keep at least some
50% chance pops in the forecast. The trough and front cross the
region during the Thursday night Friday morning timeframe with drier
weather expected for Friday. There may still be some lingering
precipitation, so will continue to maintain some low chance pops.
A tropical like airmass will remain in place next week with highs
each day in the 80s and lows mostly lower to mid 70s. Humidity
levels remain uncomfortable with dew points in the lower to mid 70s.
Aviation 02z Sunday through Thursday
Low pressure along the DELMARVA coast will track to the north to
northwest overnight, remaining to the west of the terminals.
A warm front moves into the terminals late in the overnight and
lifts to the north Sunday. During Sunday the low weakens and
tracks into the eastern great lakes region.
Easterly winds and gusts will increase this evening with
sustained to around 20 kt, and occasionally as high as 25 kt,
with gusts increasing to 35 to 40 kt. The highest winds and
gusts are expected to the at the coast terminals, especially|
kjfk and kisp terminals.
Vfr quickly lowers to widespread ifr ceilings and vsbys from
south to north this evening. Moderate to occasionally heavy
rainfall is likely. Isolated thunderstorms will also be possible
as the warm front draws closer to the region, and have now
included a tempo from 04z to 10z.
Llws wind shear is likely overnight with a E to SE low-level
jet, strongest at the coastal terminals.
By Sunday morning, south southeast winds prevail, with gusts at
times in the 20 to 30 kt range. MVFR ceilings are likely, with
scattered showers expected through the end of the forecast
period, 00z Monday. There may be a brief period ofVFR
conditions, especially in the afternoon.
Outlook for 00z Monday through Thursday
Sunday night Mostly MVFR with a chance of ifr in shra and
Monday-Thursday MVFRVFR with periods of shra and a chance
of tstms. S gusts 20-25 kt.
Gale warning remains up for all waters tonight as the coastal
storm works its way up the coast, with sustained winds 25-35 kt
and gusts 35-45 kt expected. There is a chance that winds on the
western ocean waters and new york harbor may be quite a bit
stronger than this, and that this warning may have to be
upgraded to a storm warning. Will be watching coastal obs
along off the DELMARVA and jersey shore for guidance on this
Gales should subside Sunday morning as a strong southerly llj
shifts east of those waters, with elevated seas continuing.
Winds will remain below SCA levels on the forecast waters
Sunday night through Wednesday. However, with a prolonged
southerly flow and southerly swells, ocean seas will remain at
sca levels through Tuesday. Seas may briefly fall below 5 ft
Tuesday night into Wednesday, but SCA seas then return for
Wednesday night and Thursday.
Rainfall of 1-2 inches is likely in most areas from late tonight
into Sunday morning. Locally higher amounts are possible,
especially in any heavier or more persistent rain bands. Minor
urban and poor drainage flooding looks to be the main threat.
A flash flood threat does exist, but not at high enough
probability to warrant issuance of flash flood watches. This may
change as the coastal storm works its way closer to the area and
radar obs lend confidence on exact location of heavier rain
A prolonged period of unsettled weather is expected through the
upcoming week, with the chance of showers and thunderstorms
each day. The focus of higher rainfall amounts are expected
along a frontal boundary setting up inland.
Tides coastal flooding
While astronomical tides remain low with the full moon still a
week off, strong e-se winds should result in surge of 2-3 feet,
high enough to yield brief minor coastal flooding in some
locations in around the ny bight, including the south shore of
staten island and the back bays of southern nyc and southern
nassau. The south shore of staten island may be more susceptible
to flooding as strong E winds and shape of the coastline pile up
water in raritan bay.
Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo-35 (162.55 mhz) remains off
the air for an extended period of time.

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.
