Synopsis
A cold front south of long island will continue to slowly sink
into the mid atlantic region today as a wave of low pressure
travels along it. A high pressure ridge will extend southwest
from new england Monday into Tuesday while weak low pressure
passes to the south. A cold front will move across on Wednesday,
followed by high pressure to close the week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Frontal boundary has pushed into southern nj early this morning
and will continue into the mid atlantic region this morning as a
weak wave of low pres tracks along it. Meanwhile, an upper
trough will track through the northeast.

Coverage of showers is slightly more than expected this morning,
so have increased pops a bit. Hi res guidance remains split on
whether this becomes more widespread later today and thus
remains the most uncertain part of the forecast. While it makes
sense that southern portions of the forecast area have a
greater potential, think the widespread nature is overdone.

A rumble of thunder cannot be ruled out this morning, but by aftn
there really is minimal instability (including elevated
instability) for TSTM activity. Thus, it has not been included
in the forecast. If there was any convection, heavy rain and
potential flooding would be a concern with pw's around 1.75
inches and a weak steering flow, but am not really seeing a
potential for this. Moderate showers are possible, but do not
anticipate flooding with these.

Otherwise, a cloudy and much cooler day under a NE flow. Highs
are forecast to be in the lower to mid 70s, but they may need to
be knocked down 1-2 degrees.

There is a moderate risk for the development of rip currents at
the ocean beaches today.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Tuesday
The upper trough will be slow to depart the northeast tonight
and Monday due to downstream ridging. Thus have maintained low
pops tonight through Mon morning. By Mon aftn, the trough should
be far enough east with enough subsidence from a ridge of high
pres extending through new england to keep conds dry. Waves of
low pres will continue to pass to the south through Mon night,
but are expected to be far enough south to not impact the local
area.

A frontal system will then approach the area on Tuesday with
increasing chances for rain returning during the aftn.

There is a moderate risk of rip current development on Monday.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
With the approach passage of a more significant upper trough
and associated cold front Tue night into wed, will see likely
pop late Tue night and possibly into Wed morning. See hydrology
section for further details, as there could be some urban and
flash flood potential, impacting the Wed am rush if current
model timing holds.

With mid level confluence behind this departing trough on Thu and
then ridging aloft Fri into sat, sfc high pressure should then
follow, with a noticeably drier air mass moving in on Thu with
dewpoints in the 50s and remaining into Saturday.

Except for Tue night Wed when temps may be a few deg above avg,
expect temps right near seasonal averages.

Aviation 12z Sunday through Thursday
A frontal boundary will remain south of the terminals. NE flow will
continue across the area through the TAF period.

MVFR cigs, generally between 1-2kft expected through much of
the TAF period. There may be some slight improvement this
afternoon, but still expecting CIGS to remain MVFR. Kswf has the
best chance for conditions to improve toVFR this afternoon.

There may be a few spots that fall to ifr CIGS tonight.

There may also be some gusts into the upper teens to near 20kt
on the NE flow, mainly for the nyc terminals and points east.

Tricky forecast with respect to precipitation. Some light rain
and drizzle remain across some of the terminals this morning,
and will carry a tempo til 16z. Otherwise, showers will be
possible at just about any time today, but confidence on timing
and placement of any precipitation too low to keep in the tafs.

Outlook for 12z Monday through Thursday
Mon-tue Improvement toVFR on Monday, remainingVFR through
Tuesday.

Tue night-wed Chance of shower TSTM with MVFR conditions.

Thu Vfr.

Marine
Have added W LI sound to the SCA today with NE gusts of 25 and
30 kt being reported. Otherwise, a tight gradient will result in
sca conditions on the ocean waters, E LI sound, and peconic and
gardiners bays today and continue into Monday. Marginal sca
wind gusts are likely for the remainder of near shore waters.

Then, sub-sca conditions are expected for all the forecast waters
early into the middle of next week. Ocean seas could reach sca
criteria again Wednesday night into Thursday.

Ocean seas out east may build to SCA levels of at least 5 ft on wed
ahead of an approaching cold front. These elevated seas may linger
into Wed night.

Hydrology
Minor nuisance flooding is possible with any prolonged moderate
showers today. Otherwise, no hydrologic impacts are expected
through tue.

Tuesday night into Wednesday... Showers tstms with heavy rain
may be possible with a passing frontal system. With low areal
ffg especially over NE nj, pw increasing to well over 2 inches,
and deep layer SW flow indicative of potential training of
cells, there is some urban and flash flood potential in this
time frame from nyc north west.

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