What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
A cold front will move across the region late tonight through
early Tuesday. Weak high pressure then builds in Tuesday into
Tuesday night. A cold front moves through the area Wednesday
and Wednesday night. High pressure then builds over the area
through Thursday night then slides offshore Friday night into
Saturday. A cold front may approach Sunday and move across the
area on Monday.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
Pre-frontal trough ahead of cold front will be moving into the
region for this evening and will act as a focus for developing
showers and thunderstorms. However, there is vertical limits to
development with residual ridging aloft. The ridge eventually
becomes flattens and gives way to an approaching trough late
tonight.

In terms of hazards, heat advisory remains for NE nj and the
lower hudson valley; this will end at 8pm.

Other hazard would just be associated with the thunderstorms
with the cold front moving across. Not expecting severe; SPC has
interior parts of the region in marginal risk (5%) for severe wind
gusts.

Thinking here some thunderstorm activity could have strong wind
gusts of 30-40 kt possible but bulk shear values are limited
this far south with higher values near the base of the mid and
upper level trough.

Also thunderstorms will be capable of producing locally heavy rain.

Pwats near 2 inches will enable for thunderstorms to tap into a
moisture rich environment.

The higher chances for thunderstorms will be with the remaining low
level instability. The instability will be higher near nyc and
locations to the north and west. This instability really starts to
decrease more overnight. That time though is when the central low
and cold frontal boundary will be pushing through so enough forcing
will be there to keep for some thunderstorm activity for a part of
the overnight. Convective activity trends downward after the
cold front passage towards daybreak Tuesday
a high risk of rip currents remains at atlantic beaches into
this evening.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through Tuesday night
Weak high pressure builds in from the great lakes Tuesday into
Tuesday night. The trough aloft moves into the canadian
maritimes Tuesday and into northern atlantic Tuesday night. The
ridging in the mid and upper levels stays anchored in the
southeast us leaving the local region with westerly zonal flow.

Rain showers come to an end during the morning behind the cold
front.

More stable and drier air moves in behind the front during the day
with deep N NW flow in the atmosphere.

This will provide downslope warming and while less humid with
dewpoints in the mid to upper 50s. This will be from daytime mixing
up to around or a little higher than 5 kft. The highs were taken
from the relatively warmer mav guidance ranging from mid 80s to near
90. However with aforementioned less humid conditions, apparent
temperatures will be right near actual temperatures.

For Tuesday, there will be moderate risk of rip currents at the
ocean beaches, and high risk for rip currents again for
southeast suffolk ocean beaches.

Long term Wednesday through Monday
Low pressure will track along a boundary Wednesday afternoon. This
could bring widespread showers and thunderstorms across the entire
area Wednesday afternoon through Wednesday evening. Some of the
thunderstorms are capable to produce torrential downpours along with
gusty winds. As the boundary moves offshore Wednesday night showers
will tapper off. Dry conditions expected on Thursday and into early
Saturday. Unsettled weather then likely later Saturday and into the
beginning of the work week with some rumbles of thunder mainly
Saturday afternoon through Sunday.

Temperatures during this time period will be near normal.

Aviation 20z Monday through Saturday
A cold front will approach this evening, and cross tonight. High
pressure builds in from the north tonight.

Sparse tsra threat for nyc nj terminals and n&w, with brief
MVFR ifr vsby and gusty winds, will likely be from the line of
scattered thunderstorms across N central pa as of 20z. Have
continued to mention via vcts, with low confidence on how well
this activity hold together into the city terminals. An
additional round of showers likely, with perhaps an embedded
thunderstorm, as the front passes through nyc metro towards
midnight.

Otherwise, potential for a brief period of sct MVFR ifr stratus at
kisp or kgon this evening.

Gusty s-sw flow of 10-15 kt with gusts 20 kt into early evening,
except sea breezes at kjfk klga kbdr kisp with sustained winds 15-20
kt and gusts approaching 25 kt.

Ny metro enhanced aviation weather support...
