Synopsis
Low pressure tracks across the canadian maritimes today as high
pressure builds to the west. The high moves to the south
Sunday, followed by a cold front Monday. High pressure will
build in during Tuesday and settle over the region Wednesday
through Friday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
High pressure builds in while upper trough and moisture
continue to shift east this afternoon. Strong downsloping winds
will help clear skies and contribute to compressional heating.

Highs should end up around 50 for the city and a good portion of
long island and NE nj. Other areas end up in mid to upper 40s
for the most part. Winds gradually subside through the day, but
will still be gusting 35 mph early this afternoon.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Monday
As the upper low moves northeast, the upper flow will flatten
temporarily before heights lower as next trough dives across
eastern canada, sagging south across the northeast.

High pressure builds and passes south tonight, and a cold front
then approaches Sunday and Sunday night ahead of the trough. A
wave of low pressure over the midwest rides along the front,
but passes well to the south Monday, as does the front.

Dry and chilly conditions tonight are expected under clear skies
and lightening winds. Lows will range from the 20s to the middle
30s in and around nyc metro.

Temperatures rebound Sunday to above normal levels as the winds
back to the W SW and WAA commences. High clouds increase late in
the day then lower at night as the trough, cold front approach.

Lows at night will not be quite as chilly, ranging from the
lower 30s to the lower 40s nyc metro.

Looks like 00z model suite is a bit quicker with regard to any
rain that develops and moves in later Sunday night, Monday
morning. As the day progresses, the rain will shift to the
south with the front as high pressure builds from the north.

Temps will likely rise in the morning, then fall in the
afternoon behind the front, but much depends on timing.

Long term Monday night through Friday
As the upper level low across eastern canada and just east of hudson
bay lifts north a pattern change will get underway for the eastern
half of the conus. By 12z Wednesday the upper level confluence zone
supplying seasonably cold air during Tuesday will lift northeast as
ridging at the mid and upper levels will begin to work in. The chill
overall will ease on Wednesday, with the real height rises beginning
in earnest on Thursday. By Friday heights in excess of 570 dm is
forecast to make its way into the region. This is a time period
where many locations, especially inland away from the cold ocean
should get to around 60 for daytime highs, and possibly warmer
depending on the low level winds. There are some timing differences
among the global models with respect to a trailing cold front in
response to height falls over the upper midwest and great lakes. The
timing of the cold front arrival is in question for our area. The
front may not arrive until next weekend. Due to uncertainty with the
timing and speed of the cold front late next week have decided to go
with slight chance pops for Friday night. Until then high pressure
should keep the region primarily dry.

Aviation 18z Saturday through Thursday
Deep low pressure tracks through the canadian maritimes and
gradually weakens later today into tonight.

Gusty wnw winds, just to the right of 310 magnetic, will
continue through the day. The highest winds and gusts will be
this morning and early afternoon, then diminish later in the
afternoon and this evening.

The wind gusts should eventually go away after 00z this
evening, and around 03 to 04z for the city terminals. A few
occasional gusts may continue after 04z.

Outlook for 12z Sunday through Wednesday
Sunday Vfr.

Monday MVFR possible with light rain, with a cold frontal
passage.

Tuesday and Wednesday Vfr.

Marine
Gales remain in effect today, but may fall below 35 kt criteria
by later this afternoon. Rough seas continue today.

High pressure builds to the south tonight allowing winds to
lighten. These winds will back to the west southwest by Sunday
as the high moves south. A cold front then approaches late
Sunday night, passing through Monday morning.

A pressure gradient will develop over the coastal waters with
high pressure building in and a cold front southeast of the
coastal waters by late Monday. Therefore marginal SCA conditions
will briefly return to the ocean waters for Monday night into
Tuesday morning. As high pressure approaches and begins to
settle over the coastal waters by late Tuesday into Wednesday
sub SCA conditions will prevail across the coastal waters. The
high will settle over the waters on Wednesday with tranquil
conditions expected.

Hydrology
Any precipitation on Monday should be light, otherwise mainly dry
conditions are expected through the period.

Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo35 (162.55 mhz) remains off

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