Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 646 PM EST Wed Jan 22 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will remain across the area through Friday. Low pressure impacts the region this weekend. High pressure then builds back in early next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THURSDAY MORNING/. The forecast is on track. Only updated evening hourly temps and dewpoints to capture trends.

High pressure will remain across the area tonight with nearly seasonable lows, ranging from the lower teens inland, to 25-30 across the NYC metro. A few of the colder spots will dip into the upper single digits due to strong radiational cooling (mostly clear and calm winds).

There could also be some high clouds working in from the west as the upper ridge along the eastern seaboard translates slowly east ahead of an amplifying southern branch trough over the mid section of the country. For the most part though, leaning toward it being a mostly clear night.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/. Thus far this winter, the dominant southern branch of the polar jet has been in control. This will once again be the case as we head into the weekend with the approach of longwave trough and closed upper low. Before then though, there will be a gradual increase in upper level cloudiness as well as temperatures rising a few degrees above normal. Highs on Thursday will top out in the lower 40s, with lows generally in the 20s in outlying areas to around freezing NYC metro.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. High pressure will be centered to our northeast on Friday. This continues the dry weather pattern, but mid and high level clouds will probably filter the sunshine. High temperatures will be about 5 degrees above normal.

Models continue to be consistent regarding the upper and surface features for the storm that will impact us this weekend. A cutoff 500mb low moves through the Ohio Valley Friday night and eventually tracks over us late Saturday night. Associated surface low shifts NE from the Mid-Atlantic Saturday morning and passes through late Saturday night. Global models are in decent agreement with the track and timing of the storm and have converged on thermal profiles over the past 24 hours. The trend has been toward the warmer side of guidance regarding temperatures in an elevated warm layer. PCPN chances begin late Friday night with PCPN becoming likely for all areas by the end of Saturday morning. Chances then lower Saturday night into Sunday morning with chances still remaining into Sunday afternoon and evening with a cyclonic flow aloft.

PCPN type will be mainly rain for coastal areas with a wintry mix inland. Based on an average of model thermal profiles, it appears that even the coldest spots would see a complete changeover to rain at some point given forecast freezing level heights. NW Orange County could still receive around an inch of snow and sleet accumulation before this changeover. Additionally, a light ice accumulation is possible for some of the NW suburbs Saturday morning as the magnitude of the elevated warm layer would allow for it. Wintry PCPN types return Saturday night into Sunday as thermal profiles cool on the back side of the storm, but any additional snow/sleet accumulation would be very light and confined to mainly NW of NYC.

High pressure builds in behind the storm with dry weather for Monday through Wednesday. Highs all 3 days about 5 degrees above normal.

AVIATION /00Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. High pressure will remain over the area into Thursday and Thursday night.

VFR with a few high clouds. Light and variable winds through tonight, with outlying terminals having calm winds much of the time. Winds then return out of the WSW Thursday morning, again only at around 5 kt.

OUTLOOK FOR 0Z FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY. Thursday night-Friday night. VFR. Saturday-Saturday night. MVFR/IFR in rain at the coast, mixed precipitation across the interior likely changing to rain. E winds 10-20G20-25 kt during the day diminish at night. Sunday-Sunday night. MVFR/IFR possible in lingering showers. Rain/snow mix possible in any showers across the interior. Monday. VFR.

MARINE. Tranquil conditions will prevail through Thursday with high pressure in control. Winds and seas increase on Friday and Friday night in advance of a storm system that will approach from the SW. Seas on the ocean likely could build to 5 ft Friday night. SCA conds then likely on Saturday for all waters as the low passes through or nearby. Winds on the back side of this storm so far do not appear to be strong, but 25 kt gusts will still be possible Sunday morning on the ocean. Ocean seas will take some time to subside, so 5 ft or greater seas on the ocean through the day on Sunday and probably into Sunday night. Sub- sca conds on all waters are anticipated for most of Monday.

HYDROLOGY. Around an inch of liquid equivalent precipitation is expected Saturday through Saturday night. No adverse hydrologic impacts are anticipated at this point.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. An easterly flow of 15-25 kt with relatively high astronomical high tides following a new moon Friday will bring the threat of at least minor coastal flooding during the high tides cycles of Saturday morning and evening. A good portion of the south shore back bays of Long Island (including Queens and Brooklyn) could be impacted as well as lower NY Harbor and Western Long Island Sound. Other areas could be impacted if the track of the upcoming weekend storm changes.

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

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.
