Synopsis
A cold front moves across the tri-state this evening. High
pressure returns for the middle of the week. A frontal system
will move across the area Thursday night with high pressure
returning on Friday. A series of fronts could move across the
region for the upcoming weekend.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
Convection is beginning to develop, but struggling to organize
into a broken line across the interior. The broken line of
convection will translate east into the evening hours, reaching
the nyc metro 21-23z and then southern connecticut and long
island 22-01z. The line should be moving offshore thereafter
with the cold front following around midnight.

Current radar trends are indicative of convection that is struggling
to sustain any strong updrafts. Reflectivity is struggling to make
it above -10c. Negating factors include a middle level cap that
is showing up around 500 mb on hrrr and rap soundings. In fact,
this cap appears to be getting stronger on the latest runs of
the hrrr and rap. There is also hints at a cap around 700-800
mb on acars soundings.

If updrafts can break through these capping inversions, there
is 35-45 kt of effective shear to work with and 1000-2000 j kg
of cape. The best alignment of ingredients for severe storms
lies across the interior lower hudson valley and interior
southern ct, but the threat is not zero further south. Will
also need to watch any surface convergence with sea breezes and
the pre-frontal trough as well as outflow boundary convergence
from any of the stronger convection that does develop. The main
severe weather threat will be damaging wind gusts and hail to
around 1 inch in diameter.

Showers storms may become elevated as they move across eastern long
island and southeast connecticut later this evening encountering
a bit more maritime influence.

There is good agreement among the high resolution models that broken
line of convection will move offshore after 01-03z. The front will
follow shortly thereafter with conditions drying out into the early
morning hours. Temperatures will fall into the 50s across the region
and begin to become breezy around day break.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through 6 pm Tuesday
Deep upper cyclone will pass across northern new england and the
canadian maritimes on Tuesday. A deep NW flow sets up with good
mixing through the day that will lead to gusty winds. Gusts 25 to 30
mph are possible through the day. The NW flow will advect much drier
and more seasonable air into the tri-state as dew points fall
into the upper 30s and lower 40s. High temperatures will be in
the upper 60s to near 70 degrees.

Winds will diminish Tuesday night, but not completely decouple.

High pressure builds towards the region through Tuesday night, so
winds will weaken. Ridging builds aloft with mostly clear skies and
lows in the 40s inland and long island pine barrens to the lower 50s
elsewhere.

Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
The long term will feature an amplified upper level pattern with a
deep trough in the west and strong ridging in the southeast.

Multiple waves will move around the periphery of the ridge bringing
a chance of showers for the weekend.

At the surface, high pressure will move offshore Wednesday
night as a warm front advances from the ohio valley with warm
air advection developing. As the front slowly approaches,
showers may develop early Thursday morning. There is a greater
chance for showers Thursday afternoon into Friday morning as low
pressure dives southeast from the great lakes. A rumble of
thunder cannot be ruled out ahead of the approaching cold front.

Dry and warm weather then returns Friday into Friday night as high
pressure builds in.

Another shortwave and approaching cold front may bring showers
Saturday afternoon into Sunday. It is possible the front stalls over
the region into Sunday so have kept chance pops through the weekend.

Temperatures throughout the long term will moderate to above
seasonable normals through the weekend.

Aviation 19z Monday through Saturday
A pre frontal trough moves into the region this afternoon as a cold
front also approaches. The cold front is expected to pass through
the terminals from around 00-01z northwest to 03-04z east.

Vfr outside of sct bkn line or lines of showers tstms, which
shift through the region this afternoon and early evening.

Sw winds 10-15 kt with gusts 20-25 kt. Winds will shift to the nw
with the cold front passage and briefly gust 20-25 kt as the front
moves through the terminals.

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
