Synopsis
A warm front moves across the region into this evening,
followed later tonight by a cold front. The cold front will move
southeast of long island overnight. High pressure gradually
builds in from the north and west Friday and Friday night. High
pressure slides south of long island Saturday with a weak cold
front bringing showers Saturday night into early Sunday. High
pressure returns for memorial day followed by a warm front
Tuesday.

Near term until 6 am Friday morning
Convection is beginning to develop upstream ahead of the next
upper short wave and attendant cold front, though it remains
scattered in nature. Have lowered precipitation chances for the
evening into the overnight.

As the cold front moves through later in the evening, surface
convergence will increase, and may allow for more additional,
deeper convective initiation development in response to the
forcing for ascent. Mid-level lapse rates upstream remain in the
6.5-7.0 c km range, which combined with the increasing deep
layer shear should be supportive of a few stronger updrafts and
possibly hail. By the time the convection reaches the forecast
area, it's likely that the loss of diurnal heating and the low
level warm advection will strengthen the existing inversion,
based around 850 mb, limiting a more widespread threat for
damaging winds, as storms will largely be elevated. The greatest
potential for any surface- based storms will be across the
lower hudson valley into northeastern nj, though this
instability will be waning given the time of day. As such, the
primary threats into the late evening will be hail and heavy
downpours if any storm can be sustained.

After that, overnight, expecting rapidly decreasing pops with
the cold front moving south of long island with surface flow
becoming more westerly.

Lows tonight are a narrow range from upper 50s to lower 60s
(consensus with greater weight for ecs) considering the
abundant clouds expected and increasing winds late tonight into
early Friday.

Short term 6 am Friday morning through Friday night
Ridging aloft will increase the subsidence so expecting dry
conditions Friday and Friday night along with minimal clouds.

At the surface, parent low pressure moves from near maine out
into the northern atlantic. Steep enough pressure gradient to
make for a breezy day across the region Friday with wind gusts
in the 30 to 35 mph range.

Backing of winds from low to mid levels in forecast soundings
shows cold air advection. Highs forecast on Friday mainly in the
lower 70s, relatively warmer at the coastline with the
downslope NW flow.

For Friday night, more of a spread for low temperatures, upper
40s to upper 50s. Winds decrease and without much clouds,
expecting more radiational cooling.

Long term Saturday through Thursday
High pressure builds from the great lakes Friday night before
sliding offshore late Saturday. This will lead to dry weather
and mild temperatures through Saturday. Lows Friday night will
be in the 50s.

With the high just to the south on Saturday high temperatures
will rise into the 70s, with cooler temperatures along the
coast. Southerly flow will advect in higher dew points, but in
general will be a nice afternoon with some increasing clouds
later in the day.

A weak cold front will approach Saturday night into Sunday.

This could bring a period of showers into early Sunday before
the front pushes offshore by Sunday afternoon.

Heights then rise behind the shortwave that drives the front
east with a ridge building behind for memorial day. That ridge
then becomes quite anomalous with a significant warming trend
likely into mid-week.

An approaching warm front may bring showers Tuesday followed by
dry weather Wednesday and another system on Thursday.

Aviation 23z Thursday through Tuesday
A cold front passes across the terminals tonight with high pressure
building on Friday.

MainlyVFR forecast through the TAF period. There is still a chance
of a shower or thunderstorm with the cold front passage, but
coverage remains questionable and it could end up being isolated.

Confidence is not high enough to include thunder in the taf. If a
shower or storm develops, brief MVFR conditions are possible.

The passage of the front after 04z will bring an end to the
chance of showers storms.

S winds 10-15 kt this evening will shift towards the west with the
cold front passage overnight. Winds continue veering to the nw
Friday morning and increase and become gusty. NW winds 15-20 kt with
gusts 25-30 kt anticipated for much of Friday with gradually
weakening in the evening.

Ny metro enhanced aviation weather support...
