Synopsis
A warm front passes tonight as high pressure remains to the
northeast. A wave of low pressure passes south of the area
Sunday into Monday. Meanwhile, a weak cold front drops into the
area Monday night and returns north as a warm front on Tuesday.

Another cold front approaches Wednesday and moves through
Wednesday night. High pressure then builds in for the remainder
of the week.

Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
Watching line of convection approaching from the NW this
evening. Moderate instability currently in place across the
lower hudson valley and NE nj although this will be gradually
weakening with the loss of heating. If these storms sustain
themselves strong gusty winds appear to be the dominant threat.

Expect this activity to weaken or at least transition to into
more of an elevated convective state as it continues on a se
trajectory, especially once it encounters the more stable marine
layer establishing itself in ct and on long island.

Stratus development is already underway and is expected to
continue to expand into the overnight hours. However, could see
some clearing after midnight as the flow becomes more SW aloft.

Patchy fog should be mainly confined to eastern coastal areas,
but will need to be monitored as webcams indicated locally dense
fog on the waters before the loss of daylight.With plenty of
clouds tonight and continued light veering onshore flow, temps
will not vary much, upper 60s to lower mid 70s.

Short term 6 am Sunday morning through Sunday night
The area will remain between two upper shortwaves, one passing
to the nw, and another passing just south. A sfc low passes to
the south. Stratus will once again lift dissipate as the morning
progresses, and high humidity along with increasing
temperatures into the 80s will result in a hot day. Heat indices
will likely approach and in some cases exceed 90 degrees
Sunday.

Few to scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected once
again in this persistent pattern airmass.

Lows at night will remain in the 70s.

There is a low risk for the development of rip currents at
atlantic ocean beaches Sunday.

Long term Monday through Saturday
Hot, humid and somewhat unsettled weather will continue for the
first half of next week. Nwp is in good agreement with the overall
upper pattern across north america during the long term period, with
bermuda high pressure remaining in place resulting in gradually
rising heights across the northeast early next week.

Guidance has trended slightly lower with highs on Mon and as a
result confidence in a widespread 95-99 degree heat index
doesn't look as widespread as it did yesterday. Currently think
ne nj has the greatest potential to warrant a heat advisory
sun Mon but will let the mid shift have a look at one last round
of data. Pcpn associated with low pres passing well south of
long island on Monday appears to remain offshore, although a
trough of low pres developing north and west of nyc could
trigger isold showers tstms during the aftn eve with this threat
continuing through the overnight hours as a weak cold front
moves into the area. Humid conds then continue through wed,
although more cloud cover and increasing chances for pcpn is
expected to keep temps slightly cooler than Mon with less of a
chance of heat advsy criteria being met.

Heights will fall on Wed as the closed low moves into eastern
canada. Showers tstms develop as a result of a pre-frontal
trough Wed aftn and continue into Wed night as a stronger cold
front moves through. A dry and more comfortable airmass builds
in thereafter as high pres builds from the great lakes into the
weekend. Temps are expected to be near to slightly below normal
levels during this time.

Aviation 23z Saturday through Thursday
High pressure weakens to the east of the region, while a warm
front approaches from the southwest on Sunday.

A line of showers and thunderstorms to the north and west of
the terminals this evening is likely to dissipate before
reaching the area. However, an isolated shower or thunderstorm
however can not be ruled out.

MVFR ifr conditions will mainly be restricted to the coastal
terminals overnight. In fact, some locations may even becomeVFR
overnight as drier air works in just above the moist marine
layer.VFR returns to all terminals on Sunday.

Winds will veer to a more southerly direction overnight at less
than 5 kt, then increases to around 10 kt by Sunday afternoon.

There is a chance of mainly afternoon and evening showers and
thunderstorms on Sunday, with the best chance north and west of
the nyc terminals.

Outlook for 00z Monday through Thursday
Sunday night Chance of evening showers and thunderstorms.

Best chance north and west of the nyc terminals.

Monday MainlyVFR. Slight chance shower or thunderstorm.

Tuesday-Thursday MainlyVFR. Chance showers or thunderstorms.

Marine
Easterly flow will veer more to the south by Sunday as a warm
front lifts, 10 kt or less. Seas remain under 5 ft on the ocean
and 1 ft or less across the non ocean waters.

Sub advsy conds are expected to prevail through the period,
outside of tstms. Seas on the ocean could approach 5 ft wed
night into thu, although feel that guidance was overdoing the
seas on SW flow so have knocked them down a foot for now.

Hydrology
No hydrologic impacts are expected at this time through the forecast
period.

Equipment
Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo35 (162.55 mhz) remains off
the air.

Okx watches warnings advisories
Ct... None.

Ny... None.

Nj... None.

Marine... None.

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.
