Synopsis
A warm front moves through the area overnight, followed by a cold
front crossing the tri-state on Wednesday. High pressure then
builds over the region through Friday, then slides off the eastern
seaboard through early next week. A cold front then approaches
next Tuesday.

Near term until 6 am this morning
Updated the probabilities with the warm front moving through the
region. Increased to categorical where precipitation was
occurring and then moved through the higher probabilities with
the warm front movement. Once the warm front occluded front
move through there is little to no precipitation indicated in
the hrrr and 3 km nam, so lowered probabilities to slight
chance.

Short term 6 am this morning through 6 pm Thursday
Updated the probabilities with the warm front occluded front
expected to be north of the region early this morning. Then with
the passage of the cold front brought back chance probabilities
as the cold front moves through the region. The 00z NAM and 3 km
nam really not indicating much if any precipitation with the
passage of the cold front. However, the upper trough remains in
the area with some impulses rotating into the region.

With persistent cyclonic flow aloft, expect mostly
cloudy partly sunny conditions.

Chances may briefly increase as the upper trough and attendant
cold front move through in the afternoon early evening, with a
rapid decrease thereafter as drier air advects into the region.

With relatively cool temperatures aloft and a dry subcloud
layer, small hail and gusty winds will be possible in any
thunderstorm that develops, but severe weather is not
anticipated. Temperatures will be within a few degrees of
climatological normals.

Following the cold frontal passage, cold advection will prevail
into the night, with temperatures a few degrees below
climatological normals.

There is a high risk for the meteorological enhancement of rip
current formation from Wednesday into Wednesday evening due to a
combination of sw-wsw winds at 10-15kt and S swells of 5-6ft at
7-8 seconds.

Long term Thursday night through Tuesday
Upr trof will pass during the day on thu, sparking a CU field that
should flatten in the aftn leading to bkn-ovc skies. Although the
models are not giving any indication of occurrence attm, any slowing
of the trof could result in isold-sct shwrs and tstms. Subsidence
and the loss of daytime heating should allow for clearing skies
overnight. High pres centered over the region on Fri so skc. An
increase in cirrus on Sat as SW flow aloft develops, then some fair
wx CU on Sun with a slight increase in moisture and a lack of
subsidence. The gathering heat over the midwest will begin to spill
into the region Mon and tue. The ECMWF continues to build the heat
more rapidly, outpacing the 12z gfs. This may be due to convection
upstream. Because of the tendency of the GFS to overdo convection at
times, along with the consistency of the ecmwf, the quicker and more
significant warmup has been followed for the fcst. Although the nbm
was used thru the extended, it was raised 3 degrees both Mon and tue
to allow for this.

Aviation 06z Wednesday through Sunday
A warm front lifts north of the region early this morning,
followed by a cold front later this afternoon.

MVFR ifr CIGS across all the terminals as a warm front lifts
north across the terminals. Showers along with isolated thunder
will accompany the front. The precipitation with the front is
moving through the area fairly quickly, and will have most of
the precipitation over by 10z. CIGS should remain MVFR ifr
through around 15-16z or so, then improve toVFR. This timing
may be off by an hour two. We could see improvement a bit
quicker than forecast.

It should remainVFR then for much of the day, except there is a
chance of some brief MVFR conditions as some showers or isolated
thunder develop along the cold front as it pushes across the
region. Best chance of the frontal passage will be 16z-19z for
nyc.

Winds this morning will be from the southeast, then gradually
shift to the south behind the warm front. Winds then become more
westerly during the day, and eventually northwesterly behind the
cold front. Speeds remain 10-12 kt, with gusts to around or just
under 20kt, this afternoon.

Outlook for 00z Thursday through Sunday
Wednesday night-Sunday Vfr.

Marine
Made minor changes with this update to reflect the latest
trends in observations and guidance. Updated the weather
expected across the forecast waters overnight into Wednesday
with a warm frontal passage this morning and a cold front this
afternoon into the early evening.

Conditions will initially be tranquil on the waters, before
increasing southwest flow allows seas to quickly build later
tonight. Although winds will be marginal, seas will build to
small craft advisory (sca) levels by Wednesday morning, and
remain elevated into Wednesday night. Gusts on the ocean may
briefly approach SCA levels late Wednesday due to cold air
advection.

Otherwise, seas on the ocean will linger close to 5 ft thu
morning, then drop below SCA levels by the end of the day.

Elsewhere, winds and seas will remain below SCA criteria. As
the pressure gradient slackens Friday-Sunday night, winds and
waves will then stay below SCA levels.

Hydrology
Generally 1 3 to 1 2 inch of rainfall is expected through
Wednesday, with locally higher amounts possible. The most
likely threat would be for possible minor flooding of urban and
poor drainage areas. The probability of flash flooding is very
low.

Dry weather is expected Wednesday night through Sunday night.

No significant precipitation is forecast for Monday.

Equipment
Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo-35 (162.55 mhz) remains off
the air for an extended period of time.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
