Synopsis
Tropical cyclone jose well southeast of the twin forks of long
island will slowly move northeast through tonight and will
remain well offshore through Thursday. High pressure builds
over the area Thursday and remains in place through early next
week as jose weakens and slowly meanders to our southeast.

Please refer to national hurricane center products for more
details on jose.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Jose was located about 200 mikes southeast of the twin forks of
long island late this morning and will continue moving slowly
to the northeast away from the coast through this afternoon.

Rain bands continue to spiral across portions of southeastern
connecticut and eastern long island and will keep chance
probabilities through this afternoon across the eastern zones.

Please refer to national hurricane center products for more
details on jose.

Increasing subsidence on the backside of jose and from building
upper ridging should prevent the rain from progressing westward.

North to northeast winds will continue with occasional gusts 30
to 35 mph across the twin forks.

The main concern today will be from high surf and dangerous rip
currents at ocean beaches. Minor coastal flooding is also
possible.

Mostly cloudy to overcast skies will continue across eastern
long island and southeast connecticut through the day. Further
west, at least partial clearing is anticipated, especially this
afternoon.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Thursday
Jose will meander south and east of CAPE cod tonight into
Thursday. Winds will weaken during this time, but still remain
gusty across long island and southeast connecticut. This is
where the tightest pressure gradient will be located between
high pressure to the north and west and jose offshore.

Otherwise, skies will continue to gradually clear overnight and
should largely be mostly sunny on Thursday.

Deep upper ridging builds to the north and west as jose meanders
offshore. Drier low level air should work in on Thursday as well
with dew points falling into the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Temperatures however will be quite warm, reaching the middle 80s in
ne nj and nyc metro with upper 70s and lower 80s elsewhere.

Dangerous rip currents will likely continue at atlantic ocean
beaches on Thursday.

Long term Thursday night through Tuesday
Lots of uncertainty in the long term continues. Most of this is
due to the uncertainty surrounding jose's ultimate track and
strength. Stay tuned for official track and intensity forecasts
regarding jose from the national hurricane center.

For now it appears that jose and or remnants will meander about
250- 300 miles to the southeast of montauk Thursday through
this weekend. This would likely keep the associated rain shield
just off to the east. This combined with high pressure over the
area will then likely keep us dry through the period with above-
normal temperatures as heights build aloft. It still may be on
the breezy side, particularly on Thursday and Friday. For Monday
and Tuesday, will continue to keep both periods dry for
consistency while global models attempt to sort out the details
of jose from run to run.

Rough surf will continue to be likely at least through the end
of this week and may continue into early next week.

Aviation 16z Wednesday through Sunday
Tropical cyclone jose will remain off southern new england
coast today.

Bands of showers pivoting to the east may occasionally move into
kgon, however, conditions will more likely remain dry.

Intensity is mainly light although vsby could briefly drop to
MVFR. Otherwise... Ceilings are mainlyVFR in the city terminals,
although there may be occasional MVFR ceilings at times. Pockets
of MVFR ceilings for khpn and kteb, but expectVFR by 18z.

Ceilings improve to MVFR-VFR this afternoon into the evening
hours for eastern terminals.

Gusty N flow will gradually shift to the nnw. Gusts will
continue in the 20-30 kt range at the city terminals, and closer
to 25-35 kt at eastern terminals. Winds gradually decrease
through the evening.

Ny metro enhanced aviation weather support...

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
