Synopsis
High pressure over the region moves offshore today and tonight.

A cold front approaches from the west Tuesday and passes through
Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. High pressure then builds
in thereafter through the end of the week with a much drier and
cooler airmass.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Forecast still mainly on track with just slight adjustments to
temperatures and dewpoints to better match observed trends.

Weak quasi-zonal flow aloft with main upper level jet stream
well northwest of the region.

Surface high pressure moves across the region this morning and
offshore this afternoon. Expecting a mainly dry day with just a
slight chance of showers and thunderstorms for far western
orange county late this afternoon. 850mb temperatures forecast
to reach near 15-16 degrees c. Surface temperatures forecast to
reach several degrees warmer than yesterday. Mid 80s to near 90
degrees f for much of the region with mostly sunny conditions
for most locations.

For sky cover, the western edge of a cirrus shield should be
east of the forks region and SE ct by 200 pm. Another area of
translucent cirrus moving through northern pa would appear to
shift through primarily north of the city in the timeframe of
the partial solar eclipse, which runs about 120 pm to 400 pm in
nyc with a peak at 244 pm. Cirrus may however develop and pass
through the city and long island during this period as well,
especially if any convection pops up to our west. Hrrr
indicates this convective potential, but may happen too late to
be of much significance. Finally, some cumulus development along
sea breezes this afternoon may cause some obstruction within
about 10 miles of south-facing coasts. Thinking is that any
cumulus would be no more that scattered in nature for most spots
that see it.

Like previous forecast, a look at the hrrrx conveys a slight
decrease during maximum obscuration of Sun during eclipse, so
adjusted temperature a degree downward at 19z (3pm local time).

There is a low risk of rip currents today, becoming moderate
late today at atlantic beaches.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Tuesday
Rest of the forecast shows high pressure moving farther offshore
and a cold front gradually approaching from the west. Upper
levels convey an upper level trough with its upper level low based
in ontario approaching the region. Continually more warm and
humid conditions are expected. Forecast has warmer temperatures
Tuesday, getting hot and humid for quite a few locations. Could
see heat indices up to 100 degrees in and around nyc.

Precip forecast remains near or below 30 percent for showers and
thunderstorms. Not much forcing but increasing instability and
possible lee trough forming Tuesday could provide focus for
convergence. Models are pretty minimal with forecast rainfall
amounts overall tonight through Tuesday. Weak trough evident in
lower levels late tonight into early Tuesday will lead to pops
more in low end chance for showers and thunderstorms and then
expecting much of Tuesday to be dry except for interior
locations which will have relatively higher chances for showers
and thunderstorms. These locations will be closer to lee trough
as well.

Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
A cold front approaches the region Tuesday night and pushes across
the forecast area on Wednesday. Expect cloud cover to increase and
showers and thunderstorms to develop and move across the region
through this time frame. By Wednesday evening, skies will begin to
clear and a much cooler airmass will be arriving.

Canadian high pressure builds into the region Thursday through the
weekend, providing dry and sunny conditions. Temperatures will
remain below normal as highs only reach the 70s to near 80 each day.

The dry and cooler conditions are expected to continue into
Monday.

Aviation 14z Monday through Friday
Vfr through the TAF period as high pressure remains in control.

Isolated shra tsra possible late evening for nyc nj and nw
terminals.

Sw winds will increase this morning into the afternoon, with
southerly sea breeze development at coastal terminals. Gusts of
15 to 20 kt likely this afternoon. SW winds diminish to less
than 10 kt this evening.
