Synopsis
Low pressure will move up the coast this morning. High pressure
will build in from the ohio valley over the weekend. Weak low
pressure will pass through late Sunday through Monday. High
pressure will return for Tuesday through thanksgiving day.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Last band of precip associated with upper trough moves through
this morning.

The band of wintry mix moves through, as colder air settles
southward as the winds shift around to the north across western
locales. Elsewhere, temperatures will remain above freezing, so
just plain rain is expected eastern locations. Ponding of water
is expected due to clogged drains, and snowpack.

The precipitation winds down by 9am- noon today, with fair
weather arriving this afternoon.

Winds abruptly shift to the NW as low pressure tracks to the
northeast. As the low pulls away, a few gusts up to 50 mph
cannot be ruled out from the NW near the coast. As such, issued
a wind advisory this morning for coastal locations including
nyc, long island, and coastal ct.

Nw winds remain gusty this afternoon, but do diminish some.

Max temperatures today will be in the low to mid 40s across the
interior with mid to low 50s along the coast.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Saturday
Skies should clear this evening as the low pulls away. Low
temperatures will range from the upper 20s well inland to
mid upper 30s nyc metro long island. High pressure builds into
the region on Saturday with temperatures in the mid 40s to near
50.

Long term Saturday night through Thursday
Through the long term period the pacific western ridge will remain
while a trough remains across the central and eastern us. Northern
stream flow will predominate as a series of weak impulses rotate
through the trough. One of the stronger waves moves through near
zonal flow Sunday into Monday. Timing of this wave remains a little
uncertain, and will keep probabilities at chance and slight chance.

Colder air will be in place so will have chances of light snow
inland and rain along the coast. Another wave passes generally to
the southwest and south Wednesday as the wave moves through mid and
low level higher pressure. Ensemble and model guidance keeps the
area dry with generally higher pressure dominating as the wave
passes.

Surface high pressure will be over the area for thanksgiving as
another shortwave passes to the north through the longwave trough.

Temperatures will be moderating for thanksgiving, still remaining
below seasonal normals.

A southern stream shortwave doe move under the western ridge Monday
night into Tuesday and quickly tracks through the southern states.

At this time there is no phasing with the northern trough, and this
system is expected to remain south next Thursday through Saturday.

Aviation 12z Friday through Tuesday
A coastal storm will move off to the northeast this morning with
conditions improving late this morning and early this afternoon.

As low pressure starts departing the region there will be
2 main concerns this morning.

1- precipitation moving across the terminals this morning will
produce another short period of frozen precipitation before
ending. The concern for frozen precipitation will be from the
nyc terminals and points west. (lower chances across jfk and
lga)
2- there will be a short 3 hour window (mainly between 12-15z)
for strong gusty winds as the upper low moves out of the region.

Wind gusts up to 45kt will be possible.

The precipitation comes to an end between 13-15z, with
conditions improving back toVFR. We should remainVFR for the
remainder of the TAF period.

Northwest winds will continue for much of the day with wind
speeds around 15-20 kt with gusts between 25-30kt, a few higher
gusts will be possible at the coastal terminals. Wind speeds and
gusts will continue to gradually diminish overnight.

Ny metro enhanced aviation weather support...

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.
