Synopsis
Low pressure continues to move up the coast into the canadian
maritimes through tonight. High pressure then builds across the
area into the weekend. Weak low pressure passes through late
Sunday through Monday. High pressure then builds in Tuesday
through the thanksgiving holiday.

Near term through tonight
Main issue for the evening will be gusty winds and cold air
advection across the area in the wake of the departing low
pressure system. Temperatures this afternoon evening are around
10 degrees below climatological normals. Convergent flow aloft
will allow high pressure to build eastward, gradually allowing a
strengthening subsidence inversion that will decrease wind gusts
and cloud cover overnight, leading to favorable radiational
cooling conditions at many locales. Depending on how quickly
gusts diminish across eastern long island and eastern connecticut,
temperatures may be colder than forecast. In general, temperatures
will be in the upper 20s to mid 30s - 5 to 10 degrees below
normal for time of year.

Short term Saturday through Saturday night
Generally zonal flow aloft persists through Saturday into night,
with surface high pressure building into the area. Little in
terms of sensible weather will exist, though depending on the
overall strength of winds into the early portion of Saturday,
it's possible a few lake effect flurries could reach the lower
hudson valley. Otherwise dry and sunny conditions will prevail,
with temperatures remaining below climatological normals.

Long term Sunday through Friday
The long term will be a relatively tranquil period as western
ridging and eastern troughing slowly progresses east. High pressure
will sit over the eastern seaboard on Sunday with a weak wave
rotating through an upper trough Sunday night into Monday. This will
bring a chance of showers to the region. However, with a cold air
mass in place, a few light snow showers may for the interior are
possible. Timing, placement and strength of this wave still remains
uncertain so have kept probabilities at chance and slight chance
into Monday.

The base of the 500 mb trough moves through Tuesday and Tuesday
night. Have kept the forecast dry, but it is not out of the question
for a snow or rain shower to occur as the trough axis passes.

High pressure then builds for midweek and will continue through the
thanksgiving holiday.

Temperatures through the long term will remain below average with
the coldest day being on Wednesday. Temperatures then moderate
towards the end of the week, but still remaining below normal.

Aviation 21z Friday through Wednesday
Low pressure quickly pulls away to the northeast.

Vfr through the TAF period.

Northwest winds will continue this evening with wind speeds around
15-20 kt and gusts near 25kt. A few higher gusts will be possible at
the coastal terminals. Wind speeds and gusts will continue to
gradually diminish overnight after 04z.

A few gusts are possible Saturday midday but with the wind
gradient weaker they should be less frequent.

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.
