Synopsis
Post tropical cyclone jose will meander and weaken to the southeast
of long island through Saturday night as high pressure remains
centered over the eastern great lakes, and extends into the
northeast, into the beginning of next week. Meanwhile,
hurricane maria tracks well offshore of the east coast. A cold
front passes through the region Wednesday night into Thursday.

High pressure builds to the northwest next Friday. Please refer
to national hurricane center products for more details on jose
and maria.

Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
Upper levels still exhibit the persistent pattern of a strong
high amplitude ridge across the eastern us. Upper jet remains
displaced well north into interior SE canada.

For tonight, the weakening post tropical cyclone jose will keep
clouds and some occasional light showers across parts of long
island and southeast connecticut. Otherwise, mainly dry
conditions are expected. Northerly winds will still be gusty at
times through the evening and just remain gusty at the coast
late tonight.

A combination of mav met nam12 gmos was used for min
temperatures tonight. Lowered an extra degree for far western
parts of the region, interior northeast nj and western parts of
lower hudson valley and increased an extra degree for eastern
long island and southeast connecticut. Looking at a range from
the upper 50s to upper 60s.

Short term 6 am Saturday morning through Saturday night
Upper levels still exhibit the persistent pattern of a strong
high amplitude ridge across the eastern us Saturday and Saturday
night. Upper jet remains displaced well north into interior se
canada.

For Saturday, high pressure will approach closer to the region
and along with it, bring an increase in subsidence. Jose is
forecast to further weaken.

A dry day is forecast with more Sun as clouds will be less than
the prior day. The pressure gradient will further decrease
across the area. Northerly winds will lower as a result.

The warmer mav was preferred for temperatures due to recent
better performance. A combination of mav and gmos was used for
max temperatures, yielding a range from the upper 70s to upper
80s.

For Saturday night, high pressure builds in a little more with
continued subsidence. Further weakening of jose will create an
even weaker pressure gradient with winds likewise diminishing.

Radiational cooling will result in lower minimum temperatures
Saturday night. Used relatively cooler met guidance for Saturday
night lows.

Long term Sunday through Friday
The longwave pattern will continue to be highly amplified with a
strong upper ridge over the eastern states, with a trough across the
western states, that will remain in place through the beginning of
next week with dry conditions and temperatures above seasonal
normals. There is a possibility of tying or breaking record highs
for Sunday. See the climate section for more information. Meanwhile,
hurricane maria will track slowly north, east of the eastern
seaboard, then northeast through most of the upcoming week as post
tropical jose remains southeast of CAPE cod and dissipates Sunday.

Refer to the latest advisories from the national hurricane center
for the latest forecast information on jose and maria.

The longwave pattern will transition mid to late next week as a
trough digs into the northern plains and great lakes region and then
moves east as the eastern ridge weakens. This will bring an end to
the above normal temperatures. A cold front is expected to cross the
area Wednesday night into Thursday. There is some uncertainty with
the timing of the digging trough and the cold front crossing the
area. However, there will be little moisture accompanying the front
and portions of the region may be brushed with the outer bands of
showers from maria late in the week. So, will have mainly slight
chance probabilities Wednesday night into Thursday.

Weak ridging begins to build to the west Thursday into next Friday.

Due to long period swells from both jose and maria, there will be a
prolonged period of rough surf at the ocean beaches, with the
likelihood of a high risk of rip currents.

Aviation 00z Saturday through Wednesday
Remnants of jose will meander and weaken off the southern new
england coast through Saturday.

Vfr expected tonight, except eastern terminals. Kgon should observe
MVFR CIGS most of the night, less than 2 kft. Kisp and kbdr need to
be watched. Few clouds Saturday all terminals.

N winds continue around 10 to perhaps 15 kt, with occasional gusts
tonight across nyc metro and eastern terminals. Strongest winds at
kgon with gusts well in the 20s.

N winds begin to lighten Saturday, especially by afternoon.

Ny metro enhanced aviation weather support...

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. 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. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
