As developing low pressure passes to the north, its associated
warm front will lift through the area, followed by a strong
cold around daybreak. High pressure will pass to the south
Monday and Tuesday, followed by a cold front on Wednesday. High
pressure will build late week. Low pressure will then move
across on Saturday.

Near term until 6 am this morning
Updated the forecast, mainly due to the lack of showers east of
nyc early this morning. Pre-frontal rain bands are beginning to
move into areas to the west and are expected to fill in advance
eastward through the remainder of the night. Pops have been
adjusted as such.

Obs indicate warm front has lifted into southern ct and extends
back through khpn-kteb to N of kttn. Winds to the N of the front
are light and have picked up with better mixing to the south of
it. Have also adjusted winds to better reflect this. Some
question as to how strong the winds will get late tonight right
ahead of the front as 50-60kt LLJ moves through. How much of
being transported to the sfc will depend on the strength and
location of the developing low level inversion.

No changes to wind headlines at this time, although high wind
warning may be cancelled with the 4am issuance.

Instability with bands of showers overnight will be limited to
the low to mid levels, with an h7 inversion limiting
deeper greater instability that would have otherwise led
to thunder.

Short term 6 am this morning through 6 pm Monday
Cold front will be moving across in two shots, the first marking
arrival of a dry slot and departure of the s-sw low level jet,
the second marking the arrival of strong w-nw winds after
passage of a potent, negatively-tilted shortwave trough along.

There could be a brief lull in winds between these two features,
but then w-nw winds likely to gust just over 45 mph with
passage of the second trough (with NAM indicating narrow band of
showers with the front), and then during the late morning and
afternoon via a tight pressure gradient and h8 winds up to 40-45
kt. Stronger winds should hang on a few hrs longer into the
daytime than model forecasts indicate, and NAM also indicates
stronger h8 winds arriving in the late afternoon after another
mid level shortwave passage; think winds will however start to
gradually diminish by that point, so while gusty NW winds will
continue into Sunday night, have not extended the advisory into
Sunday night.

After morning highs in the 50s, temps should gradually fall in
the afternoon, back into the 40s by late afternoon, then into
the 20s and 30s tonight. A few lake effect snow showers may
make it into the area late Sunday night especially just NW of

Long term Monday night through Saturday
Aloft, models agree early in the period as initial shortwave passes
east northeast. Downstream shortwave will then make fast eastward
progress. Here is where some differences arise. Northern stream
potent shortwave tracks across the great lakes region as it lifts
northeast, with most of the energy and associated dynamics lifting
well to our north Wednesday. Southern stream trough lags a bit as it
moves across the gulf states. By late Wednesday into Thursday,
operational GFS seems to be a deep strong outlier with regard to
closed low around the gulf states as the trough makes eastward

This upper trough weakens over the western atlantic Thursday, with
next shortwave in the northern stream moving eastward toward the
northeast by next weekend.

At the sfc, high pressure passes to the south Monday and Tuesday.

Gusty NW flow will back around the SW as the high tracks east.

Thereafter, a cold front passes Wednesday. This front is associated
with northern stream shortwave. This looks like the best chance for
measurable precipitation, late Tuesday night into Wednesday, chance

Waves of low pressure likely develop along the front well to our
south in the Wednesday night Thursday time frame. Again, GFS appears
to be an outlier with wave of low pressure developing and passing
close enough for measurable precip Thursday. Otherwise, model
consensus suggest any precip remains to our southeast as ridge
builds to the NW and waves remain far enough to the southeast.

Will maintain a dry forecast as a result, leaning toward consensus.

However, this will need to be watched.

Dry through Friday before the next chance for precip arrives with
the shortwave, clipper low Saturday.

As for temperatures Monday-Saturday, followed a model MOS blend.

Below normal temperatures Monday will warm to slightly above normal
Tuesday as WAA occurs behind the high. Behind a cold front
Wednesday, normal temps likely fall to below normal Thursday and
Friday before rebounding yet again in WAA ahead of the clipper low

Aviation 06z Sunday through Thursday
A warm front moves north of the terminals early this morning. A
cold front follows around daybreak with high pressure building
behind it through this evening.

S flow will increase through the morning hours with gusts
returning to all terminals between 06-09z. The gusts will
initially be 20-30 kt, increasing to 30-40 kt towards day
break. Some eastern terminals may see peak gusts 45-50 kt. Llws
is also forecast until around 12z. S-sw winds shift to the
w-wnw 12z-15z with gusts frequently 35-40 kt during the day.

The gusts will begin to weaken late in the afternoon and early
in the evening.

MainlyVFR conditions to start with conditions gradually
becoming MVFR towards daybreak. There may also be some brief
localized ifr. Conditions will improve toVFR 12z-15z behind
the cold front.

Outlook for 06z Monday through Thursday
Monday Vfr. W-nw winds g20-30kt. Gusts diminish gradually at

Tuesday MainlyVFR. MVFR possible late Tuesday night in
showers. SW winds g15-20kt.

Wednesday MVFR possible with showers during the day.VFR at
night. W-nw winds g15-20kt.

Thursday Vfr.

No changes to headlines attm. Slight decrease in winds and seas
over the waters to start with stronger winds taking a bit
longer to arrive than forecast. S-sw gales develop on all waters
overnight, then a strong low level jet with possibly only a
weak inversion, should allow storm force gusts to occur on the
eastern ocean sound bays, where a storm warning remains in
effect. Farther west, winds should still gust to 35-45 kt, and a
gale warning also remains in effect.

After a cold frontal passage Sunday morning, w-nw winds should
gust to 40-45 kt through the day, and fall below gale force on
the non-ocean waters after midnight.

Gusty NW W flow Monday will back around the SW Monday night and
Tuesday as high pressure passes to our south, then east. These
sw winds eventually shift around the N NW behind a cold front
Wednesday. Northerly winds persist Wednesday night and Thursday.

As for sea forecasts, rough conditions persist in the Monday and
Tuesday time frame due to strong winds tight pressure gradient.

Nearshore wave prediction system looked quite reasonable and was
followed. For Wednesday and Thursday, had to knock down sea
forecasts from wave watch iii as GFS appears to be an outlier with
regard to a wave of low pressure that approaches the waters from the
south southeast.

Rain with a warm frontal passage tonight, and then with bands of
moderate to locally heavy showers with a strong cold frontal
passage into the morning, should cause no more than local
nuisance impacts. Total rainfall is expected to range between
1 2 to 1 inch, highest NW of nyc.

Tides coastal flooding
Storm surge guidance for this mornings high tide may to be on
the low side given the strength of southerly winds expected
ahead of a cold front this morning. But typically, S SW winds
are not conducive to building surge. However, there is a low
probability of a surge of 1-2 ft. If these surge levels
develop, minor coastal impacts in a strong SW W flow would be
felt mainly across eastern portions of the great south bay into
moriches bay. Elsewhere any impacts would be brief and
localized. Statement issued to address this potential.
