SYNOPSIS
High pressure over the western Atlantic remains in control through late this week. A cold front moves in from northwest on Friday and remains over the region Saturday, then lifts north as a warm front Sunday. A cold front approaches for Monday and moves through Monday night. High pressure returns on Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
The forecast is mainly on track. Minor adjustments made to hourly temperatures, dewpoints and cloud cover for the next few hours.

The setup looks similar to yesterday with a 500mb low overhead and high pressure ridging in from the east. Subsidence from this combination should be able to ward off any shower development in the forecast area or weaken anything trying to approach from the north and west.

Comparing the boundary layer for today versus yesterday, expecting slightly warmer afternoon temps at the top of the layer with overall somewhat drier conditions through the layer. Surface wind directions looks similar to yesterday, but a little weaker. Combining all of these factors, anticipating the overall distribution of heat indices to be fairly similar to what was observed yesterday. Will leave headlines unchanged, although between what happened yesterday and what's expected for today and Thursday, the 2-day criteria for advisories will probably not be met for some zones. Heat indices top out in the 95-100 range for portions within the advised area.

SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/
High pressure weakens over the region on Thursday with the approach of a cold front. The front may reach some of the northernmost zones of the forecast area by sundown. Have included a slight chance of a shower/TSTM for some of these northern zones in the afternoon and evening. Shear is pretty weak, so any TSTM that manages to make it here probably remains sub-severe.

850mb temps rise slightly to 18-20C for Thursday, so high temperatures expected to be a couple of degrees warmer than today.
Dewpoints could have a difficult time mixing out across the northern zones, being closer to moisture convergence and where 850mb temps will be higher than the rest of the area. Other spots away from sea breezes could see surface dewpoints mixing out by a few degrees in the afternoon. While the coverage of heat indices of 95+ will be more widespread, no areas currently not under a heat advisory are forecast to meet the 2-day criteria. There could be spotty instances of heat indices reaching 95 in NYC and southern Westchester, but it's not looking widespread.

The cold front sags farther into the forecast area Thursday night and is progged to remain over us during the day Friday. Showers and thunderstorms likely fire up along the front during the day with the better overall chances of rain across the Lower Hudson Valley and CT. Once again, shear doesn't look too impressive, so severe wx doesn't look like much of a threat at this time. However, PWATs may climb to around 2 inches, and with a relatively weak steering flow, slow moving storms training along the cold front introduce a chance of flash flooding. See the hydrology section below for more details.

As for temperatures and heat indices, high temps from the deterministic NBM seem too warm, moreso across northern zones where 850mb temps are progged at around 17-18C and have a better chance of a mostly cloudy afternoon with rainfall. Warmer temps aloft will be found across the southern zones, but the threat of afternoon cloud cover and showers spilling in, as well as a chance of sea breeze development, make the surface temperature and dewpoint forecasts tricky. The current forecast has heat indices of 95+ mostly in NE NJ and adjacent areas. Given the uncertainty and lack of widespread criteria met during the Thursday-Friday period, no expansion of advisories in time and area are being made at this time.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/
**Key Points**

* The warm and humid conditions continue into the weekend with the warmest day on Sunday. A chance of showers and thunderstorms each afternoon.

* The humidity gets broken late Monday into Tuesday, with another round of showers and thunderstorms.

A frontal system will remain over the region Saturday, with mostly cloudy conditions expected along with chance for showers and thunderstorms. This should help keep temperatures in the 80s areawide. It will however remain rather humid with dew points in the upper 60s to near 70.

By Saturday night into Sunday morning the warm front lifts north and puts our areas purely in the warm sector. Expect Sunday to be the warmest day of the weekend with temperatures in the 80s and lower 90s. Dew points in the 70s will make heat index values reach 80s and 90s, with a few spots in NJ coming close to 100. Questions remain around the timing of a lead shortwave / pre-frontal trough ahead of the main mid / upper level shortwave feature for late Sunday.
Thought it prudent to at least carry chance PoPs, especially further NW for later Sunday as things destabilize through the day. The primary threats for any storms later Sunday would likely be strong winds and heavy rain. The main shortwave / trough then pivots through into Monday as a stronger cold front pushes through with the ongoing chance of convection. By Monday night into Tuesday things should improve from west to east, with less humid conditions with clearing skies. It will still be quite warm on Tuesday with increased mixing and downsloping on a westerly component to the wind, but the humidity should be lower.

AVIATION /12Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
High pressure over the western Atlantic through the TAF period.

VFR conditions with winds remaining from the south to southwest.

Winds will remain below 10kts this morning. Winds increase this afternoon to near 10-12 kt with gusts up to 20 kt mainly for the NYC and coastal terminals. Any gusts that develop will diminish around or shortly after sunset.

The afternoon KJFK, KLGA, and KEWR haze potential forecast is YELLOW...which implies slant range visibility 4-6SM outside of cloud.

...NY Metro (KEWR/KLGA/KJFK/KTEB) TAF Uncertainty...

Timing of gusts could be 1-2 hours off from TAF.

OUTLOOK FOR 12Z THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...

Thursday: VFR. S-SW wind gusts 15-20 kt for Thursday afternoon into early Thursday evening.

Friday thru Sunday: Potential for MVFR or lower conditions in showers and thunderstorms, mainly in the afternoon/evening hours. For Sunday afternoon into early Sunday evening, S-SW wind gusts 15-20 kt.

Detailed information, including hourly TAF wind component forecasts, can be found at: https:/ www.weather.gov/zny/n90

MARINE
Strengthening S flow due sea breeze circulations could push wind gusts occasionally to around 20-25 kt nearshore across the NY Harbor and the westernmost ocean waters for both this afternoon and Thursday afternoon. Otherwise, conditions will remain below SCA levels through the end of the week.

As a frontal boundary moves nearby and perhaps over the waters the winds will likely be more out of the SE for Saturday with ocean seas getting closer to 4 ft. Seas are forecast to reach SCA levels Sunday through Monday night as winds increase ahead of and with a cold front.

HYDROLOGY
Showers and thunderstorms Friday into Friday night are expected to produce an average of a half inch to an inch of rainfall north of NYC, and lower amounts for NYC, LI and NE NJ. There is a threat of higher amounts as the storms may redevelop along a stalled cold front and move slowly. There is therefore at least a low risk for localized flash flooding.

A chance of showers and thunderstorms will be possible both days this weekend. Any stronger storms will likely produce locally heavy rainfall with a low risk of localized flash flooding. This will depend on the speed of the storms which is too early to assess at this time. Another round of storms is possible Monday with uncertainty around potential hydrologic impacts.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING
There is a moderate rip current risk for all ocean beaches today and Thursday.
