Synopsis
A broad area of high pressure builds in from the west today,
and will remain in control through the weekend.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Frosty conditions across interior early this
morning... Otherwise an upper shortwave axis moves east today,
with slight mean upper troughing in its wake. At the surface,
high pressure to the west gradually builds to the south of the
region. Gusty N winds to start the day will gradually weaken
through the day.

Despite abundant sunshine, another slightly below seasonable day
expected with cold pool overhead. Temps likely only topping out in
the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Wednesday
Slight shortwave upper ridging builds into the region during
this period, while surface high pressure gradually slides south
of the region.

Good radiational cooling conditions likely tonight across
interior with a favorable WAA aloft setup for decoupling;
allowing temps to fall into the lower to mid 30s once again.

Frost conditions are likely once again late tonight across the
interior of southern ct and for the suburbs NW of nyc metro.

After collab with surrounding offices, will hold off on frost
advisory just yet to see if any interior areas experience a hard
freeze early this morning, ending their growing season. For
city and coast, increasing potential for mixing as the night
wears on in strengthening return flow, which may keep or bounce
temps into the 40s. Lower 50s likely for the nyc metro.

Sunny skies and a gradual moderation in temps begins on
Wednesday as SW return flow develops around the high to the
south. Temperatures should warm to slightly above seasonable
levels int he upper 60s to lower 70s.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
Ridging both aloft and at the surface prevails through much of
the period. Only a weak and dry cold front passage occurs
Thursday night as the flow aloft turns cyclonic for a short
period. The next chance of rainfall doesn't appear to arrive
until Monday night with the approach of the next cold front.

Expect abundant sunshine throughout the period with daytime
highs averaging around 7-10 degrees above normal.

Aviation 12z Tuesday through Saturday
High pressure sets up just southwest of the region through
Wednesday.

Vfr through the TAF period. Northerly winds will gradually back
through the day. Occasional gusts are possible this morning,
especially between 12 and 16z.

Ny metro enhanced aviation weather support...

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.
