Synopsis for the long island waters and new york harbor.. High pressure gradually builds in from the great lakes, then slides offshore Monday. A warm front slowly moves northward through the area Tuesday into Tuesday night, followed by a cold frontal passage Wednesday night. High pressure then builds to the north through late week, while a series of weak lows move along a stalled frontal boundary to the south of the area.

Synopsis
High pressure building across quebec on Monday will reach the
maritimes Monday night, allowing a warm front to approach the tri-
state region from the south. The warm front slowly moves
northward through the area Tuesday into Tuesday night,
followed by a cold frontal passage Wednesday night. High
pressure then builds to the north through late week, while a
series of weak lows move along a stalled frontal boundary to the
south of the area. A stronger area of high pressure builds from
the west through the weekend.

Near term until 6 am Monday morning
Light showers or sprinkles reside just to the south. Mid lvl
front remains just S of the cwa, with light rain and sprinkles
confined to the ocean S of LI as a result. This frontal zone
will be suppressed swd overnight as the pressure rises across
the area. Some erosion of the clouds noted, with mainly high
level cloudiness to contend with overnight, although pesky
stratus still hugs the coast.

Temps have been slow to fall and much of the modeling is
showing mainly clr skies late tngt. Clearing would allow for a
quick but significant drop in temps. Because of this, the
coldest blend of MOS has not been used, but the warmest nbm and
raw consensus was not used either. The superblend was in the
middle, and was used for the fcst, but this was nudged down a
degree or two.

Short term 6 am Monday morning through Monday night
A strong high approaching 1040 will be INVOF quebec city Mon mrng.

The influence of the high will keep the CWA dry for most if not all
of the day. A second shot of thick cirrus, as well as some low
clouds advecting in on increasing ely flow, should produce a mostly
cloudy late mrng and aftn. Mid lvl moisture transport increases mon
ngt, with a theta-e ridge building in rapidly. This will result in
rain developing and spreading nwd across the CWA late Mon and mon
ngt.

The pres gradient will be increasing due to the strong high to the n
and the approaching warm front to the s. Winds will respond, with
increasing flow thru the day and ngt. Gusts to 30 mph can be
expected, particularly along the coasts, from late in the day thru
the overnight.

A blend of the guidance was used for temps.

There is a high rip current risk on mon.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
The main concern for the extended will be the potential for heavy
rainfall, especially Tuesday with the warm frontal passage as
instability begins to increase, aiding in the potential for
convective downpours. With antecedent high pressure centered
offshore, there will be a prolonged period for moisture advection,
both from atlantic and gulf regions as wind profiles veer with
height. Pwat values will quickly increase with the warm frontal
passage to around 1.75-2.00 inch, which per SPC sounding climatology
is close to maximum values for time of year. The best chance for any
heavy rainfall will be with and following the warm frontal passage,
particularly as instability increases across the area. Additionally,
despite warm temperatures aloft, there will be instability
concentrated below roughly 500 mb, and with strong veering winds
with height as the front moves through (0-3km SRH around 200-350
m2 s2), there will be potential for brief low topped supercells
capable of damaging winds.

Rainfall may become more periodic into Tuesday night and Wednesday
in the warm sector as broad height falls and cooling temperatures
aloft increase deep layer instability across the area. At the
moment, SPC has much of our forecast area in a 15% outlook for
severe wind potential due to the low CAPE but high shear
environment. The greatest potential for any severe weather and, once
again heavy rainfall will be Wednesday night as a short wave and
attendant cold front move through. However, broad southwest flow
aloft will remain as a western atlantic high begins to retrograde,
and a phased upper low lingers across central canada into the great
lakes. As a result, the forward progression of the cold front will
significantly slow, with the front expected to stall across the
south and potential for us to remain in a humid and somewhat
unsettled period into at least Thursday.

By late week, flow aloft becomes more northwesterly, with increasing
confluence allowing a surface high to strengthen and build into the
area for the weekend, with a return to a cooler and much drier fall-
like air mass.

High temperatures in general will be within a few degrees of
climatological normals with the exception of Wednesday as we remain
in the warm sector following the warm frontal passage. Low
temperatures initially will be 10 to 15 degrees above normal, before
returning to within around 5 degrees above normal for late week with
the passage of the cold front.

Aviation 02z Monday through Friday
A frontal boundary will remain nearly stationary across the mid
atlantic states through Monday, while canadian high pressure
gradually build into new england. A frontal system will approach
Monday night.

Lingering MVFR ceilings should erode or settle south overnight.

As such,VFR CIGS are expected, with redevelopment of MVFR cigs
likely late Monday morning into Monday afternoon.

E NE winds below 10 kt, strengthening to 10 to 15 kt during
morning push. E NE winds of 15 to 20 kt with gusts to 25 kt
likely developing Monday morning for coastal terminals. These
gusts continue in the afternoon as winds veer slightly to the e.

Outlook for 00z Tuesday through Friday
Monday night-Tuesday Periods of rain showers with ifr or
lower. E wind gusts of 25-30 kt, becoming SE tue.

Tuesday night-Wednesday Showers and isolated tstms possible
with MVFR or lower at times. Southerly winds.

Thursday MainlyVFR.

Friday MVFR with rain possible.

Marine
Winds and seas will remain well below SCA thresholds overnight,
then increase to solid SCA levels Monday and Monday night.

Winds remain strong from the east then southeast as a warm front
passes through the waters on Tuesday. At least SCA conditions
will exist on all waters, with the potential for gale-force
gusts on the ocean waters early in the day. Winds gradually
decrease into Wednesday, though a few gusts to near sca-levels
will remain possible before the cold frontal passage Wednesday
night. Even though winds decrease further into Thursday, ocean
seas will remain elevated before gradually falling below sca
levels Thursday night into Friday as the pressure gradient
relaxes.

Hydrology
No hydrologic impacts are expected thru mon. A frontal system
will bring locally heavy rainfall and the potential for
localized flooding Monday night into Wednesday night. At the
moment, the greatest potential for any impacts is expected to be
Tuesday with the warm frontal passage. Storm total
accumulations are expected to range from around an inch to three
inches over the course of three days.

Tides coastal flooding
Minor coastal flooding possible during the times of high tide
Monday night and Tuesday morning in response to a strengthening
easterly flow ahead of an approaching low pressure system.

Surges of around 1 1 2 to 1 3 4 ft, and locally up to 2 1 4 ft,
are needed for minor flooding.

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