Synopsis
High pressure builds in through Friday then shifts offshore Friday
night. A complex frontal system approaches Saturday and moves
through Saturday night into Sunday morning. Weak high pressure then
briefly follows through Sunday night. Another frontal system then
affects the region Monday and Monday night, and possibly Tuesday as
well. Weak high pressure returns Wednesday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
High pressure builds in from the NW with mostly sunny and breezy
conditions. Record low maximum temperatures are expected today with
highs only in the 20s and about 25 degrees below normal. Wind chills
start in the single digits this morning and warm up into the lower
teens this afternoon.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Friday night
Winds diminish through the night as the axis of high pressure shifts
east, almost reaching us by sunrise. This combined with a clear sky
and an anomalously cold airmass will allow temperatures to radiate
all the way down into the singe digits across the northernmost
suburbs and the pine barrens region. Lows ranging mostly 10-20
elsewhere. Record lows should be approached or surpassed for most of
the climate sites. See the climate section below for details.

Deep-layered ridging on Friday will continue dry and mostly clear
conditions. Although temperatures moderate, highs will still be
around 20 degrees below normal. A southerly flow and cirrus will
then prevent Friday night's lows from dropping as low as they will
tonight, but still in the 20's for most locations.

Long term Saturday through Wednesday
Low pressure approaches on Saturday and eventually passes over or
nearby us Saturday night, exiting east early Sunday morning. Light
rain chances begin Saturday afternoon, then with deeper moisture and
good lift from a shortwave and approaching low level jet, moderate
rainfall will move through the area Saturday night and should end by
daybreak for most if not all of the tri-state area. Brief ridging
otherwise keeps Sunday dry. Brief heavy downpours and a thunderstorm
cannot be ruled out Saturday night, but the progressive nature of
the system would appear to be a limiting factor for flooding
potential. Best chances for at least minor flooding would be across
urban poor drainage areas, and the NE nj river basins based on 6-
hour flash flood guidance. Highs for both Saturday and Sunday will
return to near normal.

With the progressive flow in place, there will be only a brief break
in the precipitation chances before the next northern stream
shortwave amplifies into the northeast Sunday night into Monday.

This upper low closes off within the negative trough, and
precipitation may linger into Tuesday, depending on how quickly the
upper trough moves to the northeast. High pressure then looks
to be strong enough to keep Wednesday dry.

Aviation 09z Thursday through Monday
Vfr through the TAF period as high pressure builds in from the
west through Friday.

Nw winds generally 15-20 kt with gusts up to 30 kt possible
through about 21z today. Winds diminish thereafter.

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.
