Synopsis
Low pressure over the southern states races northeast tonight
and passes over or just east of long island Tuesday morning.

High pressure builds into the area from the west Wednesday into
Wednesday night. The high retreats to coastal new england
Thursday as low pressure approaches from the south. The low
moves along the coast and through the area Thursday night and
Friday. High pressure builds in Friday night and Saturday as a
low passes to the north Saturday night. High pressure returns
Sunday and Monday.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
Minor adjustments were made to forecast temperatures, dewpoints,
cloud coverage and pops for rain. With some radiational cooling
this evening, some locations are cooler than forecast. Min
temperatures will likely be set by late this evening and before
most of the rain begins. Otherwise, no other significant changes
were made to the forecast.

A highly amplified, yet progressive flow will send yet another
fast moving coastal low northeast from the southern states
tonight and up into the area near daybreak Tuesday. There
are subtle differences in the guidance as has been noted the
last several days with the low track. In general though, a
northeast track across long island and southern ct, or just
east can be expected. This difference though will have impacts
on the rain axis and potential for higher wind gusts up to 30
mph in the morning. The consensus though takes a strong low-
level jet southeast of the area. The other concern is always
how much momentum transfer there will be as the jet moves
nearby. Low-level temperatures profiles are inverted as a
warm conveyor belt ahead of the low results in strong warm
advection with rain overspreading the area near or just after
midnight. The best forcing should confine the highest rainfall
totals from nyc and points east with the potential for up to
1 1 2 inches and locally up to 2 inches.

Temperatures will drop into the mid to upper 30s well north and
west of nyc as well as within the pine barrens on long island
early this evening and into the low to mid 40s elsewhere. The
temperatures will then gradually rise after midnight with warm
air aloft mixing down to the low levels with any precipitation.

Some cold air damming will be evident in the valley locations
and will depend on the exact low track. There is a low
probability of any frozen precipitation.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through Tuesday night
Steady rain and gusty winds at the coast early lifts to the
northeast by early afternoon. Strong cold advection ensues in
the afternoon with NW winds gusting up to 30 mph. These gusts
will likely carry over into the night.

Clouds will be slow to decrease on the backside of the low in
the afternoon with upper jet energy remaining in place.

Thereafter, clearing will ensue from NW to SE Tuesday night.

Forecast highs on Tuesday will be normal, ranging from the upper
40s inland, to the lower and mid 50s at the coast. Lows will
drop to below freezing across much of the area Tuesday night
with the possible exception of the nyc metro. Readings will be
about 10 degrees below normal.

Long term Wednesday through Monday
Split upper flow develops Tuesday night into Wednesday as a southern
stream upper low becomes closed and cutoff from the longwave flow as
a northern stream trough passes to the north. A strong northwest
flow behind the low and strong high pressure building to the west
will bring in much colder air. There are hints that some lake effect
streamers may come within the lower hudson valley Wednesday
afternoon, however, left this out at this time. With the cold
airmass high settling over the region Wednesday night, and winds
decoupling, with clear skies overnight temperatures are expected to
be 10-15 degrees below normal.

There is some uncertainty in the forecast for Thursday with the
timing and placement of the southern stream upper low. This low will
be drifting northward, with the ECMWF slowest of the guidance, near
to the timing of the nam, and the GFS slightly faster. Leaned more
toward a slower solution. The southern low eventually phases with
the northern stream and opens up by 18z Friday. At that time a
surface low will be deepening along the northeast coast, and then
quickly passing to the northeast Friday afternoon.

The other issue will be precipitation type. Warmer air will be
streaming in aloft ahead of the low Thursday, while high pressure to
the north retreats. The question will be how quickly the surface
warms as high pressure potentially noses into the region. With a
developing easterly flow the surface along the coast warms, and kept
liquid precipitation across the southern zones. However, if the cold
air does not retreat, mixed snow and sleet will be possible even at
the coast. At this time, a light accumulating snow, mixed with sleet
will be possible across the higher elevations of northeastern new
jersey and the lower hudson valley. Inland may briefly go over to
all rain below colder air wraps around the low Thursday night. As
the 700 mb and surface low track over the region 06z to 12z Friday
precipitation may increase to moderate levels. The low moves quickly
Friday and may be lingering precipitation too long, into Friday
night, as the best forcing quickly passes to the north Friday
afternoon.

The northern stream then predominates Friday night into early next
week. One shortwave passes to the north Saturday night into Sunday.

Will leave area dry Friday night through Monday, however, if the
wave digs a little farther south, there will be chances of
precipitation, mainly to the north at that time.

Aviation 00z Tuesday through Saturday
A developing low tracks up the mid-atlantic coast tonight. The
low then tracks near or over the south shore of long island
Tuesday morning, then tracks northeast to nova scotia by Tuesday
evening.

MVFR develops around just after midnight from W to e, with
conditions becoming ifr by an hour or so ahead of the morning
push. MVFR conditions should return early Tuesday afternoon with
vfr conditions by mid afternoon.

Light and variable winds this evening, except SW winds becoming
se around 10kt at kgon. Winds overnight Tuesday morning mainly
light and variable except se-e at less than 10kt klga kjfk kbdr
and SE around 10kt at kisp kgon. Llws likely kjfk kbdr kisp kgon
for at least portions of the overnight hours early Tuesday
morning. Winds become n-nw around midday - with speeds around
10kt. Winds back to the nw-wnw 10-15g20-25kt by mid-late
afternoon.
