Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 235 PM EDT Fri Aug 7 2020

SYNOPSIS. A series of frontal waves will track along a stationary front just south of the area through early Saturday. High pressure will then build into the area for Sunday and Monday. A cold front approaches Tuesday, slowly tracking across the region through Thursday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. Most shower activity has pushed offshore. With the cold front in the vicinity, there could be a shower that pops up somewhere in the forecast area for eastern sections, so lowered POPs to slight chance there and just went with plain showers as the instability does not look strong enough for thunder.

For western areas, much of the afternoon looks to remain dry. However, showers and thunderstorms currently over currently over eastern Pennsylvania may make there way into the northeast New Jersey and the New York City metro area later this afternoon, weakening as it does so. So, kept chance POPs there. As the afternoon continues, there may be some additional surface warming to allow for a bit more instability, so kept the isolated thunderstorm for these areas as well.

As for temperatures, some clearing has allowed temperatures to rise, so increased highs for this afternoon a few degrees.

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

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM SATURDAY/. Unsettled weather will continue tonight as another wave passes along the front south of the region. This will result in a continuing chance of showers, and maybe an isolated thunderstorm, through the overnight hours before most precipitation should exit the area to the east Saturday morning. Can't completely rule out an additional shower or storm during the day on Saturday as the upper trough may be slow to exit, but the majority of the region should be mostly dry through the afternoon.

After overnight lows in the mid 60s to around 70 tonight, temperatures on Saturday will rebound into the low to mid 80s with additional sunshine.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. By Saturday night, surface high pressure and upper ridging builds back into the region behind the departing shortwave, resulting in dry conditions into the day on Monday. A weak and low amplitude shortwave passes mainly to the north Sunday, however, there is little moisture or forcing in the area and the surface reflection comes through dry. A large trough and closed low will be moving into the northern tier of the plains, and this low will track slowly east into the mid week period. This will bring a cold front very slowly across the area Tuesday into Thursday as the ridge only gradually weakens. Heat and humidity will be building early to mid week as the ridge builds. Temperatures will be well above normal through the period, around 5 to 10 degrees. Cloud cover and the chance for precipitation, scattered thunderstorms, will affect both heat and humidity, and at this time there is the potential for heat indices to be in the lower to mid 90s Monday through Wednesday across the northeastern New Jersey, the lower Hudson Valley, and New York City.

AVIATION /18Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. A stationary front will sit near the DelMarVa the next 24-36 hours, with some weak disturbances tracking along it.

MVFR/VFR cigs this afternoon into evening push (2.5-3.5 kft) Scattered to numerous shra/tsra activity will develop across E PA this aft/eve, with a low prob of sparse activity working into NYC/NJ terminals for evening push. MVFR/IFR conditions likely in any shower activity. Potential for more widespread MVFR cigs to develop after midnight and linger into Sat morning push.

Light E/SE winds today, generally less than 10kt, into early evening push, becoming light and variable tonight into Sat morning. Light SE flow developing Sat afternoon.

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
