Synopsis
A cold front and low pressure cross the area today, followed by
high pressure tonight. High pressure moves east of the region
Saturday night. A cold front will approach and move across the
area on Sunday. Low pressure moving out of the plains states on
Monday will approach Monday night into Tuesday, then pass north
of the region as its associated cold front moves across the area
Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Upper shortwave pivots northeast out ahead of main longwave
trough, passing overhead by early this afternoon. A wave of low
pressure develops along a front ahead of this aforementioned
shortwave and passes late this morning into the afternoon from
west to east.

Very strong low level jet progged by models and supported by
kokx VWP moves to the east ahead of the front. Strong low level
lift in conjunction with upper support will result in rain to
become more widespread and heavier in intensity as the morning
progresses. Elevated instability noted, and high resolution
models continue to show a line of convection along the front,
timed 15-16z western orange county, 18-19z nyc vicinity and
19-20z eastern locations. A rumble of thunder could accompany
this line.

Increasing sustained winds are expected, with the strongest
winds occurring right along the coast. Could certainly see 20-35
mph sustained winds, and a gust or two in the 40-50 mph range.

The line will need to be watched, and with 60-80 kt llj, a few
severe gusts (58mph or greater) cannot be ruled out. General
thunderstorm risk per SPC remains to our south, but it is worth
watching.

All hazards, wind advisory, flash flood watch, and coastal flood
hazards remain in effect.

Temps will warm into the 50s all locations as the strong
southerly winds prevail.

Rain will abruptly come to an end late this afternoon from west
to east behind the front, and winds turn to the W nw.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Friday
Upper low settles south from hudson bay as shortwaves pivot
around the base of the trough, passing across the region. With
height falls, colder air rushes in behind the cold front on W nw
winds. Dry conditions are anticipated. Skies clear tonight, but
a few more clouds (strato-cu and mid upper level clouds) move
in Friday as two shortwaves and associated PVA track across the
northeast.

Seasonably cold temps in the 20s tonight, and 30s Friday, are
expected, along with gusty westerly winds that will add to the
chill.

Long term Friday night through Wednesday
The long term period starts off with high pressure over the region
Friday night and Saturday. This will result in dry and cold
conditions. Highs on Saturday will remain below freezing with highs
in the middle to upper 20s, and around 30 across coastal locations.

Lows Friday night will be in the teens.

The high moves offshore Saturday night, allowing an upper level
shortwave and associated cold front move across the area. This could
result in a few snow showers, will keep pops at slight chance for
now. No accumulations at this time are expected with any of the snow
showers. Other than a few snow showers Sunday morning, the day will
generally remain dry with warmer conditions as SW flow develops.

Highs on Sunday are expected to be in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Low pressure moving out of the plains states will bring another
frontal system toward the area late Monday night into Tuesday.

Partial thicknesses and surface temperatures support idea of
precipitation beginning as snow, then transitioning to rain at the
coast and possibly a rain snow mix well inland on Tuesday. Right now
it looks like the precipitation will gradually change back over to
snow from northwest to southeast Tuesday night and early Wednesday
morning as the front moves across the region. No significant
snowfall is expected at this time.

Highs on Monday will range from the middle and upper 20s to lower to
middle 30s. On Tuesday, highs will be in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

The long term ends with temperatures in the upper 20s and 30s on
Wednesday.

Aviation 09z Thursday through Monday
A cold front moves through this afternoon.

MVFR lowering to ifr this morning with rain. Iso TSTM with cold
front passage, which is expected to be near 19z-20z for the nyc
terminals. Conditions will gradually improve back toVFR following
the passage.

S SW winds ranging mostly 15-25 kt, but more significantly, llws of
55-65kt at 2 kft strengthens to 65-75kt late morning to early
afternoon, especially from kjfk eastward. Llws may approach 80 kt
for kisp and kgon during this time. Winds then shift to wnw and
remain strong following the frontal passage. Gusty winds near 45-
55kt may be possible with the frontal passage.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
