Synopsis
Tropical cyclone jose slowly moves south and east of the area today
and will remain offshore through Thursday. High pressure builds over
the area Thursday and remains in place through early next week
as jose weakens and slowly meanders to our southeast. Please
refer to national hurricane center products for more details on
jose.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
The tropical storm watch for suffolk county has been cancelled.

Jose is located about 200 mi south and east of the long island
coast and will continue moving slowly to the northeast away from
the coast through the day. Impacts will be minimal on land as
the majority of showers will stay offshore. A few bands of
showers are attempting to graze the south fork of long island,
but thinking is these will stay over the waters. Some of the
showers could work there way inland this morning across eastern
long island and southeast connecticut. However, increasing
subsidence on the backside of jose and from building upper
ridging should prevent much progress westward.

Gusty northerly winds will continue today with the strongest
gusts, 30-35 mph across long island. No tropical storm force
sustained winds are expected on land.

The main concern today will be from high surf and dangerous rip
currents at ocean beaches. Minor to locally moderate coastal
flooding
mostly cloudy to overcast skies will continue across eastern long
island and southeast connecticut through the day. Further west, at
least partial clearing is anticipated, especially this afternoon.

Above normal temperatures are forecast despite the cloud cover with
highs reaching the middle and upper 70s for most locations and the
lower 80s in NE nj and the nyc metro.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Thursday
Jose will meander south and east of CAPE cod tonight into Thursday.

Winds will weaken during this time, but still remain gusty across
long island and southeast connecticut. This is where the
tightest pressure gradient will be located between high
pressure to the north and west and jose offshore. Otherwise,
skies will continue to gradually clear overnight and should
largely be mostly sunny on Thursday.

Deep upper ridging builds to the north and west as jose meanders
offshore. Drier low level air should work in on Thursday as well
with dew points falling into the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Temperatures however will be quite warm, reaching the middle 80s in
ne nj and nyc metro with upper 70s and lower 80s elsewhere.

Dangerous rip currents will likely continue at atlantic ocean
beaches on Thursday.

Long term Thursday night through Tuesday
Lots of uncertainty in the long term continues. Most of this is due
to the uncertainty surrounding jose's ultimate track and strength.

Stay tuned for official track and intensity forecasts regarding jose
from the national hurricane center.

For now it appears that jose and or remnants will meander about 250-
300 miles to the southeast of montauk Thursday through this weekend.

This would likely keep the associated rain shield just off to the
east. This combined with high pressure over the area will then
likely keep us dry through the period with above-normal temperatures
as heights build aloft. It still may be on the breezy side,
particularly on Thursday and Friday. For Monday and Tuesday, will
continue to keep both periods dry for consistency while global
models attempt to sort out the details of jose from run to run.

Rough surf will continue to be likely at least through the end of
this week and may continue into early next week.

Aviation 12z Wednesday through Sunday
Tropical cyclone jose will remain off southern new england
coast today.

Bands of showers pivoting to the east may occasionally move into
kgon and kisp. Intensity is mainly light although vsby could
briefly drop to MVFR or even ifr. Otherwise... Ceilings are
mainly MVFR this morning improving to MVFR-vfr this afternoon.

Gusty N flow will gradually shift to the nnw. Gusts will
continue in the 20-30 kt range at the city terminals, and closer
to 25-35 kt at eastern terminals. Winds gradually decrease
through the evening.

Ny metro enhanced aviation weather support...
