SYNOPSIS
High pressure slides to our north and east tonight and remains in control as it weakens into Thursday. A frontal system will move across the area late Thursday night into Friday, followed by high pressure building in for the start of the weekend. The high moves offshore on Sunday with the potential for multiple frontal systems to impact the area Sunday through Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING/
High pressure slides to our north and east tonight, but will remain in control. The orientation of the high nosing in will result in a mainly light easterly flow. This will bring an increase in low level moisture.

The forecast challenge tonight will be sky cover and how that affects low temperatures. Across Long Island, NYC and northeast NJ, trended slightly higher in sky cover and in turn warmer in low temperatures. However, there will likely be a period just after sunset through around midnight where temperatures drop quickly across the usual cold areas. Farther north, across the interior, clouds likely move in later so went closer to the CONSMOS for those locations. Expect mid to low 20s for Long Island, NYC/NJ metro area and the CT coast and mid to upper teens across the interior.

SHORT TERM /6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH THURSDAY/
High pressure remains in control as it noses back from the north and east. At the same time, strong low pressure will pass well offshore to our south and east and remain far enough to not bring any impacts to land.

Wednesday and Thursday will feature dry conditions, with a slight warming trend. Highs by Thursday will be back in the mid 40s.
Low pressure approaches from the west on Thursday. Any precip likely holds off until Thursday evening, but clouds will be increasing from the west during the daytime hours.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/

*A late week cold frontal passage to bring below normal temperatures to start the weekend.

*A nearly zonal flow aloft will bring warmer Pac air into the region early next week with the potential for multiple frontal systems to impact the area early next week.

A fast upper flow to start will send a southern branch frontal system toward the area at the start of the period. At the same time, shortwave energy rounding a polar vortex near James Bay in Canada, will attempt to link up the two streams. There is never a true phase as the southern branch frontal system works across the area Thursday night into Friday with mainly rain (a few flakes north and west of NYC at onset possible). A much colder shot of air then follows Friday night with a northern branch cold frontal passage. This will result in colder airmass for the first half of the weekend with temperatures 5 to 8 degrees below.
A gusty NW flow will make it feel even colder.

High pressure briefly builds across the area Saturday into Saturday night and then offshore Sunday. There is some uncertainty beyond this time, but several fast moving frontal system could impact the area Sunday night into Tuesday. This event look to be all rain at this time. In addition, temperatures will return to above normal levels during this time with air masses of Pac origin moving into the area.

AVIATION /21Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
VFR with high pressure in control. There is a low potential of high end MVFR from 12Z-18Z Wednesday, but confidence is not high enough to include in TAFs at this time. Higher chances for these conditions exist along the coast.

S to SE winds under 10kt this afternoon shift to the SE and then E overnight tonight. Winds at all terminals may become light and variable tonight. Winds on Wednesday will be out of the E again, also under 10 kt.

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

Winds through the TAF period are expected to remain below 10 kt, but direction may be off by more than 30 degrees at times. Low potential for MVFR ceilings 12Z-18Z Wednesday.

OUTLOOK FOR 18Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...

Wednesday afternoon: VFR. Low chance for MVFR stratus near the coast in the morning.

Wednesday night-Thursday: VFR.

Thursday night and Friday: MVFR or lower cond beginning mainly at night, with rain becoming likely, possibly beginning as a wintry mix at the onset at or near KSWF.

Friday night: VFR. NW winds G15-20kt.

Saturday: VFR. NW winds G20-25kt.

Sunday: VFR

MARINE
Although high pressure is leading to quiet conditions over the waters, a long period southeasterly swell will move in Wednesday night from strong offshore low pressure. A Small Craft Advisory is now in effect for Wednesday night for the ocean waters. This advisory will likely be extended as the swell sticks around for several days. Wave heights on the ocean waters will reach 5 to 8 feet by Thursday.

SCA conditions continue on the ocean waters through Saturday, primarily due to swell, but gusts over 25kt are expected Friday night into Saturday behind the passage of low pressure and a cold front. This will bring advisory conditions to the non-ocean waters as well during this period. Sub-SCA conditions may return briefly late Saturday into Sunday as high pressure moves across the area with subsiding winds and seas.

HYDROLOGY
There are no hydrologic concerns through early next week.

OKX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
CT...None.
NY...None.
NJ...None.
MARINE...Small Craft Advisory from 6 PM Wednesday to 6 AM EST Thursday for ANZ350-353-355.
