Synopsis
High pressure builds in from the west through tonight, before
retreating into new england Thursday. An area of low pressure
will develop over the tennessee valley Thursday, with a second
area of low pressure moving up the east coast Thursday night.

The low will likely pass just east of montauk early Friday,
then into the canadian maritimes Friday night. A broad area of
high pressure builds in for the weekend.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Mostly sunny sky expected today as high pressure builds in from
the west through tonight. Seasonably cold air will move into the area,
with highs only in the mid to upper 30s to around 40.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Thursday
High shifts towards new england tonight with a continuation of
dry weather. Temperatures will continue to be seasonably cold
with low temperatures tonight in the teens across the northern
suburbs and the pine barrens and low to mid 20s elsewhere. A
freeze warning is in effect for the remaining boroughs where the
growing season has not yet ended. A strengthening low pressure
then rapidly moves northeast up the coast on Thursday with
precipitation developing across the area. A wintry mix is
expected initially, with probably a change over to rain along
the coast around sunset. Temperatures on Thursday will be in the
low 30s inland and mid to upper 30s to near 40 along the coast.

Long term Thursday night through Tuesday
Overall timing of the storm is a bit faster than 24 hours ago, with
good clustering of the low INVOF long island at 12z fri. The low is
then over the gulf of me by 18z.

The increased speed puts Thu eve under the gun for the worst of the
wintry pcpn. Mainly snow or a snow sleet mix can be expected across
the interior during this time, with the coasts transitioning to
rain. By late in the eve overnight, a transition to fzra should
occur over the interior and much of the remaining area will go to
all rain. Ice accretion has been ramped up significantly in the
fcst, to around a quarter inch in the hudson valley where the
predominant ely flow will likely remain backed further to the n.

For snow, a solid burst of mdt to hvy snow appears likely with the
initial surge of waa. Advy lvl snow has been included in the fcst
away from the coasts.

Wind will increase Thu ngt as the gradient tightens ahead of the
low. Strongest flow along the coasts, particularly ERN long island
aft the development and passage of a cstl front. 40 mph gusts
possible in this zone. As the low makes its closes approach possibly
over li, winds across the region would then weaken, before ramping
up again as the low pulls away. Winds on the back side could
approach 50 mph, again mainly ERN coasts, if the more intense nam
verifies.

The pcpn winds down fri, then fair wx is fcst thru sat. Low chcs for
pcpn on Sun thru Mon with a frontal sys potentially impacting the
area. There remain some significant timing and track differences
between the GFS and ecmwf, so a blended approach was used for the
fcst. The model consensus was for dry wx on tue.

Aviation 09z Wednesday through Sunday
High pressure builds over the region into tonight.

Vfr through the TAF period.

Nw winds through early evening. Sustained winds around 10-15 kt.

Gusts resume around 13z with gusts around 20-25kt. Gusts should
abate around 22z with speeds around 10kt. Winds veer to the nnw-n
around with speeds less than 10kt by mid evening, with kswf and kteb
becoming light and variable.

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.
