SYNOPSIS. A cold front will approach today and move through the region this evening. A weak wave of low pressure moves along the offshore front late tonight into Wednesday morning. Arctic high pressure builds into the region late Wednesday through Thursday. The high shifts offshore Thursday night with low pressure approaching from the south Friday. Rain chances increase late Friday afternoon and overnight leading to an all day rain event likely for Saturday associated with the low pressure system.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. Rain has briefly ended early this morning as low level jet has passed well to the east. The warm front that was near the region has also lifted to the north. Low clouds will remain in place this morning and there could be some patchy fog, but do not anticipate any significantly low visibilities.

The next round of rain will come ahead of an approaching cold front and a 700 mb shortwave trough. The rain should develop to the south and west this morning and overspread the area in the afternoon. The rain should continue into the early evening hours. Rainfall amounts are likely to be much less than what was observed on Monday. Amounts should be around a quarter of an inch through the early evening.

The actual cold front will just begin entering Orange county early this evening. High temperatures will be in the lower to middle 50s north and west of NYC with middle and upper 50s elsewhere. Some locations near the coast and city could touch or exceed 60 degrees.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM WEDNESDAY/. The cold front will be moving across the region this evening. Temperatures both at the surface and aloft will drop significantly through midnight with temperatures from upper 40s and low 50s at 00z Wednesday and into the 30s around 06z. There will likely be lingering rain showers with the cold front passage. There is some indication on the high resolution model guidance that precipitation may end or become scattered briefly before midnight.

500 mb energy rounds the base of the upper trough early Wednesday morning and this brings increasing lift over the region. As this energy rounds the base of the upper trough, a strong upper jet streak, 160-180 kt, will be situated to our north. The region will lie in the right entrance of the jet, favoring large scale lift. A tight thermal gradient will also set up near the coast from the cold front passage leading to increasing frontogenesis. All of these ingredients lead to precipitation overspreading the Tri-State early Wednesday morning. The thermal profiles are expected to cool as this precipitation develops and grows in coverage with any lingering rain near the coast transitioning to snow around 09z.

There a several forecast challenges for early Wednesday morning. The first is the amount of snow accumulation and how the warm conditions preceding the snow will impact road conditions. The next challenge is how far north the precipitation shield will reach. There are mixed signals in the HREF, 12-km NAM, 3-km, NAM, GFS, and ECMWF. Most of the models hint the higher liquid equivalents will be from NYC on east across Long Island and southern Connecticut. However, the placement of the upper jet as well as the thermal gradient gives cause for concern that there will be some accumulation snow even across the NW interior. One other challenge will revolve around the placement of any mesoscale banding.

In summary, rain will transition to snow early Wednesday morning with impacts to the morning commute likely. Snowfall accumulations look to range from 1-2 inches across the NW interior of the Lower Hudson Valley and NE NJ. Further east around 2 inches is forecast in the NYC metro and Hudson River corridor with 2-3 inches across Long Island and southern Connecticut. This is where bands of snow may linger longest as these locations lie closer to the frontal wave. As noted above, the placement of any mesoscale snow bands is difficult to discern at this time range so forecast snow amounts could still change.

Have gone ahead and issued a winter weather advisory which is mainly for impacts on the morning commute. The advisory is for all of southern Connecticut, Long Island, NYC metro, Westchester in NY, and eastern Bergen, eastern Union, eastern Essex, and Hudson counties in NJ. Amounts are lower than normal advisory criteria, but feel the advisory is warranted with the snow occurring during the morning commute. The advisory may need to be expanded to the rest of the area if confidence increases on higher totals and more impact there. Even if roads do not see as much accumulation as grass, temperatures will be near freezing and lighter accumulation on roads and reduced visibility in moderate snow are likely to create hazardous travel.

A reasonable worst case snowfall of 3-4 inches is possible.

The snow will quickly end from west to east late Wednesday morning to early afternoon with improving conditions thereafter. Temperatures should reach the middle and upper 30s with skies becoming partly to mostly cloudy.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. Dense arctic airmass shifts over New York State as a 1040mb high pressure system builds into the region Wednesday night into Thursday. Temperatures fall into the mid 20s near the city and in the upper teens along the Lower Hudson Valley. Skies should be clear Thursday but daytime highs will struggle to raise above freezing. This could be a full 10 degrees below day averages. Cold temperatures continue into the night but as the high pushes to the east and off shore winds veer out of the south allowing temperatures to rise back to near normals. Afternoon highs rise into the mid 40s Friday, but moisture returns with the flow increasing rain chances into the late afternoon.

Next chance for widespread rain come Friday night into Saturday. A trough axis over the Lower Mississippi initiates convection over the Southeast Friday night. As this broad area of convection follows the southwest to northeast upper level flow a coastal low develops off the coast of the Carolinas an continues north into our offshore waters by early Saturday morning. By this time, moderate rain should be well established over the forecast area first associated with the warm front then with the overhead occlusion itself. Model soundings show this sub-tropical airmass being quite moist with precipitable water values over 0.90 inches around the 90% moving average. Rainfall totals could be around 1-2 inches with isolated higher amounts. Nuisance flooding and ponding in areas of poor drainage from the rain are the main concerns at this time. There is a possibility for coastal flooding issues as well. An expected near full moon Saturday in combination with the onshore flood may be problematic for the south shore and eastern bays. This will continue to be monitored through the week. Mild temperatures are expected throughout the event in the low to mid 50s.

Cold front pushes through the region behind the system dropping temperatures back into the 40s during the day and 30s for the overnights Sunday and Monday as a weak ridge builds behind the front.

AVIATION /09Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. A cold front over the Midwest will slowly approach the area through the day on Tuesday.

MVFR ceilings to start the TAF period as many terminals see a break in the precipitation. East of the NYC terminals, IFR or less conditions continue to be observed. There is a chance that some terminals see ceilings lower back to IFR early this morning, however thinking now is that we will remain MVFR into the afternoon. Terminals east of NYC may not reach MVFR today. A few showers are then possible this morning before another round of steadier rain is expected during the afternoon in association with the approaching front. Rain will change to a rain/snow mix and eventually all snow from NW to SE after 03Z.

SW winds around 10 kt today then NW by the end of the TAF period with speeds decreasing to 5-10 kt. LLWS at all terminals through early this morning.

OUTLOOK FOR 06Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY. Tuesday night. IFR or lower as rain transitions to snow from northwest to southeast. Wednesday. IFR or lower possible in snow in the morning, improving to VFR late. Thursday. VFR Friday and Friday night. VFR on Friday, then MVFR possible in developing rain Friday night. Saturday. IFR in rain. LLWS possible.

MARINE. A cold front approaches today and moves across this evening. A weak wave of low pressure passes offshore tonight into Wednesday morning with high pressure building late Wednesday.

Winds have weakened across the waters and the SCA on the non- ocean waters has been cancelled. The Gale warning on the ocean has been replaced with a SCA and runs through tonight. Winds will continue to gust to 25-30 kt. Winds fall below SCA levels tonight into Wednesday, but ocean seas will continue to remain elevated through Wednesday.

South winds increase to 20-25 mph nearing SCA conditions Saturday morning through the afternoon. Seas increase 9-12 feet by the afternoon associated with coastal low entering the ocean waters from the south. Though the low exits the region and winds relax Saturday night elevated waves remain through Sunday.

HYDROLOGY. No hydrologic issues are expected with rain through early this evening. The rain mixes with and changes to snow early Wednesday morning. Total liquid equivalent amounts from this morning through Wednesday morning are 0.50 to 0.75 inches.

A long duration rainfall event is possible beginning Friday night through late Saturday night. Total rainfall amounts range between 1- 2 inches with isolated higher amounts possible.

EQUIPMENT. NYC NOAA Weather Radio Station KWO35 (162.55 MHz) is still operating at reduced power.
