Synopsis
Intensifying low pressure will move up the coast and pass over
long island on Friday. High pressure will return for the
weekend. Weak low pressure will pass through late Sunday through
Monday. High pressure will return for Tuesday through
thanksgiving day.

Near term until 6 am Friday morning
Winter storm warnings and winter wx advisories issued earlier
remain in place, with addition of western suffolk to the
advisory.

Low pressure over eastern nc continues to move up the coast,
while strong high pressure over maine retreats NE while
supplying cold air to the region. Bands of moderate to heavy
snow had overspread most of the region, well ahead of schedule,
except for SE ct, and on the south fork of long island where
precip at hto changed to rain earlier. It is possible that
precip there could briefly change back to snow as a heavier band
moves in from offshore.

As this band lifts out this evening, precip should mix with or
change to rain from nyc east. Areas farther north west however
will likely transition over to light freezing rain as warm dry
slot works its way northward. Up to 2 tenths of an inch ice
accretion fcst for portions of the interior.

Winds between the approaching intensifying low and the strong
high to the NE will ramp up tonight, and expect gusts to at
least 40 mph in nyc metro and along the coast, and higher across
the forks of long island and coastal ct. Issued a high wind
warning for eastern suffolk where gusts up to 60 mph expected
out on the forks, and 45-50 mph farther west into suffolk and
across coastal ct.

The low should be right along the nj coast just S of nyc and
long island by daybreak, with temps rising to the 40s along the
coast and possibly to 50 across the forks of long island.

Short term 6 am Friday morning through Friday night
As the low pulls away fri, there may be another burst of snow on
the back end across the interior zones NW of nyc as the upper
low tracks thru and the column cools rapidly. A quick additional
inch could accumulate over already icy areas.

For all areas, a quick increase in NW winds is expected after
the passage of the low, with gusts up to 40 mph mainly nyc
metro coastal sections.

High temps should range from the upper 30s lower 40s inland, to
the mid 40s in nyc metro, to the upper 40s lower 50s across
eastern long island which should briefly get into the warm
sector in the morning as the sfc low moves across.

Skies should clear Fri afternoon as the low pulls away. Another
pd of clouds possible late day into the evening Fri with passage
of a weaker upper trough, the mostly clear skies expected later
fri night. Fcst low temps range from the upper 20s well inland
to mid upper 30s nyc metro long island.

Long term Saturday through Thursday
Through the long term period the pacific western ridge will remain
while a trough remains across the central and eastern us. Northern
stream flow will predominate as a series of weak impulses rotate
through the trough. One of the stronger waves moves through near
zonal flow Sunday into Monday. Timing of this wave remains a little
uncertain, and will keep probabilities at chance and slight chance.

Colder air will be in place so will have chances of light snow
inland and rain along the coast. Another wave passes generally to
the southwest and south Wednesday as the wave moves through mid and
low level higher pressure. Ensemble and model guidance keeps the
area dry with generally higher pressure dominating as the wave
passes.

Surface high pressure will be over the area for thanksgiving as
another shortwave passes to the north through the longwave trough.

Temperatures will be moderating for thanksgiving, still remaining
below seasonal normals.

A southern stream shortwave doe move under the western ridge Monday
night into Tuesday and quickly tracks through the southern states.

At this time there is no phasing with the northern trough, and this
system is expected to remain south next Thursday through Saturday.

Aviation 03z Friday through Tuesday
A coastal storm will impact the region through tonight before
moving off to the northeast Friday morning.

Precipitation has transitioned to rain at the city terminals and
is beginning to mix with or change to sleet at khpn and kbdr.

These terminals will be the next to transition to rain, with a
brief period of freezing rain possible in between. Precipitation
at kswf is expected to change to freezing rain by around
midnight. The changeover from snow to rain will result in
improving visibilities, although ceilings will generally remain
ifr to borderline MVFR through the overnight hours.

Ene winds will gust to 35 kts at coastal terminals overnight and
25-35 kts elsewhere. Winds then shift to the northwest towards
12z but remain gusty, with gusts of 20-25 kts into the
afternoon.

Outlook for 00z Saturday through Tuesday
Friday night-Sunday Vfr. NW winds g15-20kt possible on Saturday.

Sunday night-Monday MVFR or lower possible in possible rain
or wintry mix. NW winds g15-20kt Monday.

Tuesday Vfr.

Marine
Winds and seas should rapidly increase tonight. Storm force
gusts 50-55 kt expected late this evening into the overnight
between the approaching low and departing high, across the ocean
waters and the eastern sound bays. Gales up to 40-45 kt expected
on the remaining waters. MAX seas should reach 14-17 ft on the
ocean and 4-7 ft on long island sound.

There could be a lull in winds early Fri morning as the sfc low
moves across, then NW gales expected daytime Fri on all waters
as the low pulls away, with gusts 35-40 kt, and continuing on
the ocean waters into Fri night, with SCA conds elsewhere.

Westerly winds and gusts will be diminishing through the day
Saturday as low pressure departs to the northeast and high
pressure builds to the west of the forecast waters. Winds and
seas on the non ocean waters are likely to be below SCA levels
Saturday morning. However, ocean seas will be on going at sca
levels, with wind gusts marginal. By late Saturday winds and
seas will be below SCA levels.

Winds and seas will remain below advisory levels Saturday night
through Tuesday night with high pressure in control most of the
time. A weak wave of low pressure moves north of the waters late
Sunday through Monday.

Hydrology
Liquid equivalent precip of 1.0-1.5 inches expected into fri.

Much of this across the interior will fall as snow or a wintry
mix. With more of the precip on the wintry side, even at the
coast, the urban and poor drainage flooding threat has
diminished.

Dry weather is expected Fri afternoon into Saturday.

No significant precipitation is expected Sunday and Monday.

Dry conditions return for Monday through thanksgiving day.

Tides coastal flooding
Easterly gale to storm force winds will result in tidal departures
of 3 ft above astronomical high tides around the times of high
tide overnight into early Friday morning.

Widespread minor coastal flooding (1 to 2 ft above ground level)
expected for vulnerable locales along the southern and eastern bays
of li, jamaica bay, and western long island sound. Elsewhere,
localized minor flooding expected along lower ny nj harbor and se
coastal ct.

Water levels are expected to fall significantly for the Friday
afternoon high tide, but could have some residual minor flooding
issues in eastern great south bay with a switch to westerly winds if
water does not recede quickly enough. Elsewhere water levels are
expected to remain below minor flood thresholds for Friday.

High surf of 8 to 12 ft along with elevated water levels will result
in widespread beach erosion and flooding during the times of high
tide tonight. Localized minor dune erosion is possible. Along
western LI sound, 3 to 5 ft of surf may cause some splashover
seawalls and exacerbate coastal flooding along shoreline areas.

Equipment
Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo35 (162.55 mhz) will remain off
the air for an extended period of time.
