Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 405 AM EDT Sat Aug 15 2020

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure continues south and east of the area as high pressure continues to build over New England today, A low pressure approaches from the southwest on Sunday. A cold front follows Monday night into Tuesday with high pressure returning for the middle of the week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. High pressure anchored over eastern Canada results in ridging down the Appalachians for Saturday, as tropical storm Kyle heads well southeast of the area. A mid level shortwave approaches by the afternoon, and cloud cover will begin to increase from west to east. However, the day should remain mostly dry under east/northeast flow and subsidence, with seasonable temperatures and dewpoints in the low 60s.

There is a moderate risk of rip currents at the Atlantic Ocean facing beaches today.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM SUNDAY/. A challenging forecast is setting up for Sunday with respect to rain chances for the area. The main players are a surface low that develops in association with a stalled frontal boundary south of the area with the aforementioned mid level shortwave, and the retreating high pressure system northeast of the area. The low progresses northeast Saturday night into early Sunday passing south of Long Island by Sunday evening. Light rain/drizzle will be possible in advance of the main system on Sunday morning from NYC on east as the column begins to saturate. With respect to the surface low, the latest model guidance has generally trended a bit further north with the track/placement of this feature, which would lead to a more widespread rainfall event, for at least southeastern Long Island and SE CT. On the wetter side, the NAM is slower and further north with the low and shows a healthy 1-2" rainfall for much of the CWA while the EC keeps the system to the south with very light amounts. The precipitation gradient is fairly tight however, given the dry air just to the north. So, have increased precipitation chances across the southeast portions of the CWA, and with PWAT values of 1.0-1.75 in., the potential does remain for any precipitation to be heavy on Sunday across these areas.

Regardless, cloud cover will be in place over the CWA which, along with easterly flow, will keep high temperatures rather cool, in the mid to upper 70s. It will also be breezy, particularly along the coastal areas, on Sunday afternoon, as the low passes to the south.

There is a high risk of rip currents at the Atlantic Ocean facing beaches on Sunday.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. For most of the week a quasi stationary long wave trough over eastern Canada is the dominate feature. As the trough pivots through New England early next week, the dynamic lift induced by the positive vorticity advection could initiate precipitation locally. In addition the trailing weak cold front extending through New York late Monday may also promote showers and thunderstorms. Precipitable water values 1.2 to 1.3 inches mean that showers forming in this environment should be light to moderate.

A brief reprieve from the rain mid week is not out of the question as high builds into the region behind the cold front. However additional showers are still possible owing to another shortwave impulse riding through the longwave flow. Afternoon highs mid week should remain in the low 80s for areas not impacted by rain. Following this shortwave, ridging and dry air return to the forecast area. Temperatures Friday could as a result be slightly higher than the previous days reaching the upper 80s and low 90s.

AVIATION /08Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. High pressure remains centered to the northeast today, then low pressure approaches from the south late tonight.

VFR through this evening with MVFR conds developing towards daybreak Sunday in rain.

NE winds increase and veer E this afternoon around 15G20kt. Highest winds generally for the coastal terminals. Winds then back towards NE tonight and diminish to around 10kt.

OUTLOOK FOR 06Z SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY. Saturday night. MVFR with rain developing towards sunrise. Sunday. MVFR with rain. Chc IFR. NE gusts around 20kt. Monday. VFR. Chc late day/nighttime MVFR in shra/tstm. Tuesday. Early MVFR/shra possible, otherwise VFR. Wednesday. VFR AM, CHC shra/MVFR PM.

MARINE. E-NE flow on Saturday will bring wind gusts 25-30 kt across the ocean zones, especially east of Fire Island Inlet. Wind gusts on Saturday on the LI Bays and Eastern Long Island Sound will also reach 25 kts. Ocean seas will build to 6-7 ft on Saturday and will linger into Sunday evening. The SCA for the Atlantic ocean waters has been extended through 10Z on Monday.

Northeast winds 15 kt with gusts up to 20 kt are possible on the ocean waters Sunday owing to an approaching low pressure system from the south. Ocean waves may rise to 6 to 8 feet, especially east of Fire Island Inlet into Monday.

Sub SCA conditions with light west winds 5-10 kt are expected on Tuesday. Winds shift south by the middle of the week as a week low passes to the north. Light north winds 5-10 kt are again possible late this week.

HYDROLOGY. No hydrologic impacts are expected through tonight. There remains a low probability of a heavy rain event on Sunday for eastern LI and southeastern CT. Should the surface low progged to lift northeast pass closer to Long Island, QPF values between 1 to 2 inches with isolated higher amounts are not out of the question. This would result in nuisance to minor flooding primarily in urban and other poor drainage areas. Confidence in this scenario is low at this time.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Easterly flow resulting from a low pressure system passing to the south Saturday and Sunday may bring tide levels close to minor flooding benchmarks. This will occur across the vulnerable south shore back bay locations during times of high tide Saturday and Sunday evenings. The higher chance of occurrence is on Sunday evening, and levels may approach minor benchmarks, but should fall just short.
