Synopsis
A strong low pressure system tracks across the great lakes tonight
and southeast canada Sunday into Monday. High pressure then dominates
the weather pattern through the middle of next week with another
storm possibly impacting the region late in the week into the
weekend.

Near term through Sunday
High pressure moves well offshore tonight. A strong shortwave trough
across the plains will support an intensifying low pressure tracking
across the great lakes tonight. The lows associated frontal system
will approach from the south and west.

The early evening hours will be dry across the region as it will
take some time for the atmosphere to support precipitation.

Some light precip may develop west of the city after about 02z.

Initially, temperatures will be above freezing across the
region. However, there should be some surface cooling as the
initial precip falls into a dry air mass. Temperatures aloft are
supportive of liquid precipitation. The main concern is across
orange county where temperatures may be able to drop to 32 and
stay there for a few hours as the rain becomes steadier
overnight. This may be more for the northern half of the county,
but will keep the winter weather advisory as is for now. Any
icing will be light and only a few hundredths, but it does not
take much freezing rain to cause problems and the chance of this
is greatest in orange county. There could be some be some
isolated locations across putnam and interior SW ct that see
temps around 32 as the precip begins. Will continue to highlight
this in an hwo for now and monitor precip and obs through the
evening.

Precip will continue to overspread the region after midnight as warm
advection becomes enhanced with the approach of the warm front. It
may take until the early morning hours for precip to make it to
eastern LI and eastern ct. Steady moderate rain moves across Sunday
morning. A mid level dry slot moves across in the afternoon bringing
an end to the rain. The trend in the models over the last 24 hours
is for slightly lower rainfall amounts, averaging about an inch.

Temperatures on Sunday are also problematic and will be
dependent on how far north the warm front moves. The warm front
may only be able to reach the ct coast in the afternoon before
eventually getting shunted away as the trailing cold front
surges east in the evening. Highs should be able to reach the
upper 40s to near 50 inland and the lower to middle 50s near the
coast. Temps could be cooler if the warm front stalls further
south.

Winds will be light tonight into much of Sunday, only beginning to
increase Sunday evening.

Short term Sunday night through Monday
Strong and potentially damaging winds will be the main concern
Sunday night through Monday.

Bufkit soundings on both the NAM and GFS continue to indicate deep
mixing and very strong low level winds Sunday night behind the cold
front and continuing into Monday. The winds Sunday night may be
aided by strong pressure rises behind a secondary low tracking up
the new england coast. The soundings indicate winds 45 to 55 kt from
about 2 to 5 kft with good momentum transfer and mixing. Another
piece of evidence which could be hinting at a greater high wind
potential is mos. Sustained winds on both the mav and met guidance
are in the mid 20s to low 30s (kt) Sunday night through Monday
afternoon. When MOS indicates such high sustained winds, at least
advisory level are usually met. Add in strong cold advection, a well
mixed boundary layer and momentum transfer, the potential exists for
damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph. It is always a challenge with how
much of these winds will ultimately make it down to the surface. One
negating factor may from highest pressure rises occurring to our
south. We have gone with a high wind watch for now due to the
strongest winds most likely occurring late Sunday night and Monday
morning afternoon. The high wind watch was collaborated with
neighboring offices. Warnings were issued further west due to a
quicker timing of the higher winds.

Winds should gradually weaken early Monday evening. It should be a
dry day with temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Deep w-nw
flow may bring varying degrees of stratocu during the day for partly
to mostly cloudy skies.

Long term Monday night through Saturday
High pressure ridge slowly shifts in from the west Monday night
through Tuesday with diminishing winds, but still breezy through the
period. Temperatures will be below normal. The ridge axis makes it
over here on Wednesday and high pressure should be strong enough to
keep the entire area dry through the day.

Gfs, and to a lesser extent the canadian model, continue to show a
chance of light snow Wednesday night coinciding with slight upper
troughing and a weak shortwave along with perhaps a weak surface
reflection. Will leave in slight chc pops for this period. Dry
otherwise for Thursday with high pressure still the dominant
feature across the northeast. Temperatures remaining below normal.

Pcpn chances then increase at the end of the week into the weekend.

Just slight chc pops for Friday with another weak shortwave moving
through. Pcpn type probably a wintry mix as highs end up mostly 35-
40. Better chances for pcpn arrive Friday night into Saturday as a
primary low moves through the eastern great lakes and passes us to
the north with a weak secondary low shifting over or nearby us.

Looks so far like another event where snow turns into a wintry mix
and or rain.

Aviation 21z Saturday through Thursday
High pressure moves off into the atlantic through tonight to
southeast of nova scotia. Low pressure system approaches from
the west with its warm front approaching the region tonight and
moving across on Sunday.

Vfr into much of this evening. Initially some very light rain
develops for nyc terminals and terminals to the north and west
with higher decks of clouds around 8-10kft around 03z Sunday.

Rain becomes heavier and more steadier overnight into early
Sunday with conditions deteriorating to ifr lifr. Exact timing
of categorical changes could be a few hours off from taf.

Winds mainly SE 5-10 kt become more easterly tonight with
nearly the same speed. Winds become more SE to S overnight into
Sunday at 10-15 kt. There will be llws developing with SE winds
of 40-45 kt at 2kft from 09-17z.

Outlook for 18z Sunday through Wednesday
Sunday MVFR ifr during the afternoon behind warm fropa, then
vfr late behind cold fropa.

Sunday night Vfr. W winds 15-25kt with g35-40kt. Gusts
increase to 40-45 kt towards daybreak Monday.

Monday Vfr. W-nw winds 25-30kt with gusts near 50kt. Winds
decrease significantly at night, NW gusts 30-40kt evening, nw
gusts around 20 kt overnight.

Tuesday Vfr. NW winds 10-15 kt with g20kt.

Wednesday Vfr.

Marine
Strengthening pressure gradient will occur tonight ahead of an
approaching warm front. The warm front should lift north of
the waters Sunday morning early afternoon and will be followed
by a strong cold front passage. SCA conditions are expected to
develop on the ocean on Sunday. Behind the cold front Sunday
night, winds will increase significantly on all waters. Gale
conditions are likely on all waters with the potential for storm
force winds, especially late Sunday night into Monday
afternoon. The storm watch has been expanded to include the li
sound, LI bays, and ny harbor. The gale watch is no longer in
effect. Winds should slowly weaken early Monday evening. Ocean
seas will build to 7 to 12 ft Sunday night into Monday and seas
on LI sound could be 3 to 6 feet.

Gales then continue through Monday night, followed by SCA conds
Tuesday. As the pressure gradient relaxes further, all waters should
have winds below advisory criteria by the end of Wednesday morning.

A weak pressure gradient then maintains sub-advisory conditions
through Thursday.

Hydrology
Around 1-1.5 inches of rain is fcst tngt and sun. Some minor urban
or poor drainage flooding will be possible. Otherwise, no hydrologic
impacts are anticipated thru fri.

Tides coastal flooding
Blowout tides are possible with the Monday afternoon evening low
tide. The threat appears greatest for the south shore back bays
at this time.

Equipment
Nyc central park winds are out of service until further notice.

Loss of data is due to a severed cable. Parts are on order.

Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo35 (162.55 mhz) will remain off
the air for an extended period of time.
