Synopsis
High pressure will build across the region through mid week,
then move offshore on Thursday. A weak cold front passing by
early Friday will be followed by a warm front moving north
early Saturday. A stronger frontal system will approach for the
late weekend, moving offshore on Monday.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
Updates made mainly to dewpoints and pops early this evening.

Latest obs show a tight dewpoint gradient in the vicinity of
coastal ct and the lower hudson valley. Dewpoints in mid-upper
20s near i-95 in ct while just 10 miles north, some dewpoints
are in the single digits. This drier air will slowly push down
south through the rest of the night as high pressure builds in
from the north. Based on latest surface obs and radar, best
chances of any rainfall early this evening, which will be
light, are across the coastal parts of nyc and union county.

Will go with a dry forecast north of nyc.

Skies should then become mostly clear overnight with brisk n
winds developing. Low temps should range from from the lower 30s
in nyc and immediate surrounding areas, to the 20s elsewhere.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through Tuesday night
Clear and dry as high pressure builds across. High temps in the
40s on tue, and then low temps a little colder than those fcst
for tonight especially outside the metro area, where some upper
teens are possible, will be about 5-8 degrees below the seasonal
avg. A brisk N flow gusting to 20-25 mph daytime Tue will
diminish at night, becoming light variable outside the metro
area.

Long term Wednesday through Monday
A weak pac shortwave approaches the region Wednesday night, with
a southern stream shortwave moving offshore. Thereafter,
generally zonal upper flow through the week across the north
central and northeastern CONUS between cross CONUS pac jet and
polar jet rotating around large polar upper low sliding
through hudsons bay and northern quebec.

At the surface, canadian high pressure will be in control on Wednesday,
moving east on Thursday. A weakening cold front approaches
Thursday night, with perhaps some showers. Uncertainty on how
far south this front sags for Friday, before heading north as a
warm front Saturday. Overall not a lot of forcing with this
feature, but will play a role in cloud cover and temps forecast.

Overall a moderating trend during this period, from near
seasonable on Wednesday to potentially 10 degrees above
seasonable (lower to mid 60s) away from the coast on Friday.

Temps along the coast will likely remain near seasonable (50-55
degrees).

Next trough of note approaches the NE us late this weekend early
next week, as shortwave energy digging down the backside of the
polar upper low interacts with pac energy shearing into the
central plains. At this timescale, timing and amplitude
differences exist with the approaching trough, resulting in
sensible weather impacts differences with frontal system
affecting the region Sun mon. Strong WAA ahead of this front
likely sat, with potential for temps into the 70s across areas
west of hudson, and north west portions of nyc metro, while
along the coast temps would likely stay in the 50s. Frontal
passage during Sun Mon would bring potential for mild temps and
showers along ahead of front, and shot of CAA in its wake with
drying conditions and return to near or slightly below
seasonable temps.

Aviation 00z Tuesday through Saturday
A weak low passes to the south of long island early this
evening. High pressure then builds to west and north through the
taf forecast period.

Vfr through the TAF period. There may be a brief shower or
sprinkle through 01z at the nyc metro terminals.

Winds light and variable to light N to NE will become northerly
less than 10 kt early this evening. Winds will increase to 10 to
15 kt late. Then become gusty Tuesday morning, with gusts up to
20 kt. Gusts subside by early Tuesday evening.

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.

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.
