Synopsis
A cold frontal passage occurs this evening. A bermuda high sets
up Wednesday night. Then a frontal system passes north of the
region Thursday through Friday night. A cold front approaches
Saturday and moves across Sunday into Sunday night. The front
may linger south of the region early next week with otherwise
weak high pressure returning.

Near term through tonight
Potential for isolated strong to severe convection this
afternoon.

Best large scale lift is passing to the east of the area early
this afternoon with an upper jet and mid level short wave. The
forecast dilemma for this afternoon is with continued
destabilization of the airmass due to approach of the upper
trough, and whether it will be sufficient enough to offset
subsidence and drying low levels.

Have maintained scattered showers and thunderstorms this
afternoon into early this evening with a pre-frontal
trough weak cold front. Deep-layer shear values of 50-60 kt and
moderate instability will support low-topped supercells.

Isolated thunderstorm wind damage and large hail are also a
possibility this afternoon, especially across the interior where
steeper low-level lapse rates will be present. The limiting
factor for large hail is that thunderstorms will be low-topped.

Cold front moves east of the area this evening with perhaps a
few showers or thunderstorms across eastern long island and
southeast connecticut, otherwise it will be another dry,
seasonably cool night.

There is a moderate risk for rip current development today.

Short term Wednesday
Despite very steep low lvl lapse rates, subsidence should keep
the area dry. There could be some flat cumulus, however with
condensation pres deficits around 40, even this may be
difficult, especially away from any terrain enhancement. Despite
the cool airmass aloft, deep mixing will allow for highs to be
only a few degrees blw average. A blend of guidance was used for
this.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
The jet lifts north of the region and stays north of the region
midweek going through much of the weekend. It starts to move farther
south into the region Sunday afternoon into Sunday night, before
lifting back north of the region early next week.

The mid and upper level flow transitions to more of a zonal flow mid
into late week and then transitions to more of a ridging pattern
going into the weekend. Shortwave approaches for second half of
weekend, presenting more of a trough pattern and SW flow aloft,
before returning to a quasi-zonal flow early next week.

High pressure moves off into the western atlantic, building
Wednesday night, and then slowly drifting farther out to sea through
Thursday night. Meanwhile, a warm front moves north of the great
lakes and into northern new england Thursday into Thursday night.

There is a trailing cold front to the west that looks to weaken
Thursday night before moving northward as a warm front Friday into
Friday night. A cold front from the west approaches Saturday and
moves across Sunday into Sunday night. Possibly this could get
delayed as shown by the ecmwf, hence the longer time window
stated for its passage.

The frontal boundary of the weakening cold front Thursday night into
Friday is forecast to be close enough to warrant a chance of a
shower or thunderstorm. The chance continues into Friday night. The
next chance of showers and thunderstorms will be this weekend.

There will be a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms
forecast for early next week with frontal boundary possibly
lingering not too far away to the south of the region. Not
expecting a total washout as coverage is expected to be mainly
isolated to scattered. The showers and thunderstorms will be
driven by the diurnal heat and the instability that generates.

Temperatures start off near normal Wednesday night and Thursday but
then trend warmer for the rest of the forecast period. It will be
getting warmer and more humid. The temperatures will average about 3-
5 degrees above normal. Temperatures are forecast to be well
into the 80s Thursday through Monday with some locations in the
ny metro and northeast nj reaching near 90 for Friday and
Saturday.

Aviation 18z Tuesday through Sunday
MainlyVFR as a trough of low pressure passes across the
terminals late this afternoon and evening.

Light and variable winds will become s-sse 14-15z at 10 kt or
less. Speeds will increase in the afternoon to 10-15 kt with
direction gradually veering to the SW by late afternoon and
evening. Winds become w-wnw overnight 10 kt or less.

Showers with brief MVFR visibilities are possible at kgon
til 15z. A shower thunderstorm is also possible this afternoon.
