Synopsis
Low pressure rapidly approaches overnight, moving near the
delmarva and then moves over or just southeast of long island
Tuesday morning. High pressure builds into the area from the
west Wednesday into Wednesday night. The high retreats to
coastal new england Thursday as low pressure approaches from the
south. The low moves along the coast and through the area
Thursday night and Friday. High pressure builds in Friday night
and Saturday as a low passes to the north Saturday night. High
pressure returns Sunday and Monday.

Near term until 6 am this morning
Clouds and rain have moved in, and min temperatures have pretty
much already been set. Steady to slowly rising temperatures
expected for the overnight with warm air aloft mixing down to
the low levels with any precipitation, which is expected to be
rain.

A highly amplified, yet progressive flow will send yet another
fast moving coastal low into the area near daybreak. There are
subtle differences in the guidance as has been noted the last
several days with the low track. In general though, a northeast
track across long island and southern ct, or just east can be
expected. This difference though will have impacts on the rain
axis and potential for higher wind gusts up to 30 mph in the
morning. The consensus though takes a strong low-level jet
southeast of the area. The other concern is always how much
momentum transfer there will be as the jet moves nearby. Low-
level temperatures profiles are inverted as a warm conveyor belt
ahead of the low results in strong warm advection with rain
overspreading the area near or just after midnight. The best
forcing should confine the highest rainfall totals from nyc and
points east with the potential for up to 1 1 2 inches and
locally up to 2 inches.

Short term 6 am this morning through 6 pm Wednesday
Steady rain and gusty winds at the coast early lifts to the
northeast by early afternoon. Strong cold advection ensues in
the afternoon with NW winds gusting up to 30 mph. These gusts
will likely carry over into the night.

Clouds will be slow to decrease on the backside of the low in
the afternoon with upper jet energy remaining in place.

Thereafter, clearing will ensue from NW to SE Tuesday night.

Forecast highs on Tuesday will be normal, ranging from the upper
40s inland, to the lower and mid 50s at the coast. Lows will
drop to below freezing across much of the area Tuesday night
with the possible exception of the nyc metro. Readings will be
about 10 degrees below normal.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
Split upper flow develops Tuesday night into Wednesday as a southern
stream upper low becomes closed and cutoff from the longwave flow as
a northern stream trough passes to the north. A strong northwest
flow behind the low and strong high pressure building to the west
will bring in much colder air. There are hints that some lake effect
streamers may come within the lower hudson valley Wednesday
afternoon, however, left this out at this time. With the cold
airmass high settling over the region Wednesday night, and winds
decoupling, with clear skies overnight temperatures are expected to
be 10-15 degrees below normal.

There is some uncertainty in the forecast for Thursday with the
timing and placement of the southern stream upper low. This low will
be drifting northward, with the ECMWF slowest of the guidance, near
to the timing of the nam, and the GFS slightly faster. Leaned more
toward a slower solution. The southern low eventually phases with
the northern stream and opens up by 18z Friday. At that time a
surface low will be deepening along the northeast coast, and then
quickly passing to the northeast Friday afternoon.

The other issue will be precipitation type. Warmer air will be
streaming in aloft ahead of the low Thursday, while high pressure to
the north retreats. The question will be how quickly the surface
warms as high pressure potentially noses into the region. With a
developing easterly flow the surface along the coast warms, and kept
liquid precipitation across the southern zones. However, if the cold
air does not retreat, mixed snow and sleet will be possible even at
the coast. At this time, a light accumulating snow, mixed with sleet
will be possible across the higher elevations of northeastern new
jersey and the lower hudson valley. Inland may briefly go over to
all rain below colder air wraps around the low Thursday night. As
the 700 mb and surface low track over the region 06z to 12z Friday
precipitation may increase to moderate levels. The low moves quickly
Friday and may be lingering precipitation too long, into Friday
night, as the best forcing quickly passes to the north Friday
afternoon.

The northern stream then predominates Friday night into early next
week. One shortwave passes to the north Saturday night into Sunday.

Will leave area dry Friday night through Monday, however, if the
wave digs a little farther south, there will be chances of
precipitation, mainly to the north at that time.

Aviation 06z Tuesday through Saturday
A developing low tracks up the mid-atlantic coast early this morning
to the gulf of maine by this evening. High pressure then begins to
build in from the west into tonight.

MVFR giving way to ifr early this morning. MVFR conditions should
return early Tuesday afternoon withVFR conditions by mid afternoon.

Locally heavy rainfall possible during the morning push.

Winds light and variable becoming NE at lga jfk at less than 10 kt
and SE kisp kgon at 10-15kt by morning push. Winds become n-nw
throughout around midday - with speeds around 10kt. Winds back to
the nw-wnw by mid-late afternoon. Winds increase to 10-15g20-25kt by
early evening.

Llws early this morning for kisp and kgon.

Outlook for 06z Wednesday through Saturday
Late tonight-Wednesday Vfr. NW winds g20-30kt likely.

Wednesday night-Thursday morning Vfr. NW winds g15-20kt possible
Wednesday evening.

Thursday afternoon night MVFR or lower conditions likely, a
wintry mix is likely lower hudson valley ct terminals, and rain
elsewhere. Ese-ene winds g20-30kt likely mainly nyc metro coastal
terminals.

Friday MVFR or lower conditions probable with rain (wintry mix to
rain in the am kswf), possibly becomingVFR in western terminals in
the afternoon. Ne-n winds g25-35kt probable.

Friday night-Saturday Vfr. W-wsw winds g15-25kt possible.

Marine
Low pressure rapidly approaches overnight, moving near the
delmarva and then across the local waters by morning. This will
result in a moderate to strong SE flow late tonight, followed
by a moderate NW flow behind the system Tuesday afternoon night.

Gales are in effect for the ocean waters east of moriches inlet
with a SCA elsewhere. Occasional gale force gusts elsewhere can
not be ruled out Tuesday morning should the low track be
slightly father west than forecast.

On-going SCA conditions are expected on the ocean waters Wednesday,
with gusts diminishing as high pressure builds into the waters.

Ocean seas may remain elevated into Wednesday evening. Sub sca
conditions are likely Wednesday night and most of Thursday.

As low pressure approaches from the south Thursday an easterly flow
will be increasing. Small craft advisory conditions will be possible
by late Thursday and more likely Thursday night, across all the
forecast waters.

As the low passes to the northeast Friday and high pressure builds
into the waters, conditions will be gradually improving through
Friday. However, with gusty westerly winds and cold advection Friday
night, ocean gusts around SCA levels will be possible, and seas will
remain elevated. With a weak pressure gradient force Saturday, as
high pressure builds into the waters, winds and seas likely fall
below advisory levels Saturday night, and remain below through
Sunday.

Hydrology
A 1 to 1.5 inch rain event is likely late tonight into the
morning. Main threat with this system is minor urban and poor
drainage flooding.

Liquid equivalent rainfall of around an inch will be possible
Thursday into Friday.

Tides coastal flooding
Based on latest storm track and wind forcing, isolated minor
coastal flooding is no longer a threat.

Equipment
Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo35 (162.55 mhz) will remain off
the air for an extended period of time.
