Synopsis for the long island waters and new york harbor.. A cold front over the midwest will track east and pass through the area Monday evening. Ahead of the front, a series of pre- frontal troughs will work across the area, one tonight, and another Monday afternoon. High pressure will return for the middle of next week. A quick moving frontal system will likely affect the region Thursday night, with a series of subsequent weak frontal systems possible into the weekend.

Synopsis
A cold front over the midwest will track east and pass through
the area Monday evening. Ahead of the front, a series of pre-
frontal troughs will work across the area, one overnight, and
another Monday afternoon. High pressure will return for the
middle of next week. A quick moving frontal system will likely
affect the region Thursday night, with a series of subsequent
weak frontal systems possible into the weekend.

Near term until 6 am this morning
Main focus through 04z will be multi-cluster convection across
se pa moving ene towards NE nj, in response to weak shortwave
energy aloft and still moderate instability and sufficient deep
layer shear. Thermodynamic and wind shear profiles become
quickly unfavorable as the convection approaches the hudson
river, which indicates this activity should weaken as it enters
ne nj. Localized strong to damaging wind gusts threat should be
limited to essex union. Potential for minor urban and poor
drainage flooding with this activity, but progressive nature
will limit flash flood threat.

The convection will become elevated as it works farther
northeast towards the lower hud valley and nyc metro, and then
continues to weaken as it overspreads coastal areas after
midnight.

Showers dissipate across far eastern area by daybreak.

Number two concern will be the warm, moist air, traversing the
cooler near shore waters. Widespread low clouds and fog are
likely to develop across long island and coastal connecticut.

Winds and convection may provide enough mixing to inhibit dense
fog formation, with the possible exception of the immediate
shoreline.

Lows will be the 60s with similar dew points, thus making for a
humid night.

Short term 6 am this morning through 6 pm Tuesday
Second day of convection will likely be triggered by another
pre-frontal trough during the afternoon and early evening
hours. Convection looks to be scattered in nature. Cold front
comes through in the evening likely dry. Another day of moderate
instability and weak shear. Severe weather threat will remain
low,
highs will top out in the upper 60s to mid 70s along the coast,
with the 80s across the interior. This still well above normal,
but not record warmth.

Gusty SW winds in the afternoon may reach up to 30 mph,
especially near the coast.

Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
Pseudo omega blocking pattern for mid week as a vigorous closed low
slides across northern new england and then the canadian maritimes
tue into wed, while a large closed low develops over the western us.

Pieces of energy shear off the fairly stationary western upper low
for late week into weekend, while ridging builds across SE us into
ohio valley and a hudson's bay upper low remains stationary.

In between these features, the region will be on periphery of active
upper flow, with several weak shortwaves (pieces of western low)
moving through the flow.

Breezy and dry conditions expected Tue Wed as canadian high pressure
builds in. A seasonable mild canadian continental airmass works in
tue Tue night in wake of a departing low and ahead of high pressure
building in.

A weakening shortwave warm front may approach Wed night into thu
morning but little sensible weather impacts. Better agreement on a
stronger feature diving into the NE us Thursday night, with
potential for showers. Model spread increases heading into the
weekend into early next week on timing of subsequent
shortwave frontal systems riding around the ridge, but overall
appear to be a progressive pattern overhead.

Temperatures will be near seasonable during the day Tue and Wed with
canadian continental airmass, although temps Tue and Wed night could
be unseasonably chilly in outlying areas, well down in the 40s.

Otherwise temps should gradually moderate to above seasonable levels
by late weekend.

Aviation 06z Monday through Friday
A trough moves across the area overnight. A cold front
approaches late Monday morning and moves across the terminals
Monday afternoon into early Monday evening.

Conditions are expected to be generallyVFR with periods of MVFR
to ifr as showers and thunderstorms move through the region
through 10z. Along the coast local areas may be lifr in stratus
and fog until the showers move into the area.

Vfr Monday with a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the
afternoon and into the early evening with MVFR conditions.

Southerly winds 5-10kt overnight with llws east of city
terminals. Winds will be more SW Monday with gusts developing
early in the morning with gusts to around 20 kt. As the cold
front cross the terminals winds shift to W and NW with gusts
20-25 kt.

Outlook for 06z Tuesday through Friday
Late Monday night-Tuesday Vfr. NW gusts around 20 kt. Nw
gusts near 25-30 kt Tuesday. Gusts subside Tuesday night.

Wednesday MVFR possible. A slight chance of showers Wednesday
night.

Thursday MVFR possible late Thursday and Thursday night. A slight
chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Friday Vfr.

Marine
Conditions mainly on the ocean will be meeting minimal sca
thresholds tonight with continued southerly winds of 15-20 kt
with gusts up to around 25 kt. This will keep elevated seas on
the ocean. The SCA ends at 22z Monday but may need to get
extended with subsequent forecasts.

Potential for dense fog development overnight, particularly
eastern nearshore waters.

Winds subside briefly Monday evening, but then may come back up
to marginal SCA gusts in the NW flow for the second half of the
night.

Sca conditions possible all waters, mainly for gusts Tuesday into
Tuesday night. Winds expected to gradually weaken wed, with sub sca
conditions likely for late week in weak flow regime.

Hydrology
Widespread hydrologic impacts are not expected through next
Friday.

Tides coastal flooding
Tides continue to run astronomically high due to a full moon.

There is a low probability for localized minor coastal flooding
for southwest ct shorelines during tonight's high tides.

Equipment
Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo35 (162.55 mhz) remains off
the air.

Okx watches warnings advisories
Ct... None.

Ny... None.

Nj... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory until 6 pm edt this evening for anz350-
353-355.
