Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 1052 AM EDT Sun May 31 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure builds into the Ohio River Valley then south of the area on Monday. Weak low pressure and its associated warm front affects the region Tuesday into Tuesday night. A cold front will be nearby late Wednesday into Thursday, with a potential return to high pressure for Friday and into the weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. Made some slight adjustments with dewpoints, temperatures and cloud coverage. Max temperatures forecast similar to before but distinguished the coast more with NW gusty flow allowing for more downslope and less maritime influence. Coastal areas have forecast highs in the lower 70s while the interior areas have forecast highs in the mid to upper 60s.

With the cold front continuing its push to the south throughout the day today we'll see dry conditions. The 12Z upper air OKX sounding showed a lot of dry air between 950 and 500mb so the sunny sky conditions remain this morning. However, with some cyclonic flow aloft in the mid levels with a lingering trough, some stratocumulus development is expected during the afternoon, especially north and west of NYC. Model soundings in BUFKIT show some cloud development at the top of the boundary layer around 800mb and some clouds are also projected to move southeast into the region from RAP and HRRR forecast cloud parameters. Already there is scattered to broken cloud coverage across interior parts of the northeast and these will move into the local forecast region this afternoon. However, do expect some decrease in coverage as they move in due to more dry air being present over the local region. Clouds were increased in the forecast but still few to scattered coverage.

The tight pressure gradient between the low over the Canadian Maritime and the high entering the Ohio River valley will provide steady northwest winds today around 10-15 mph. There will be some gusts from 20 to 25 mph.

There is a moderate risk for the development of rip currents at the ocean beaches through this evening.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH TUESDAY/. The trough axis over New England extending from the quasi stationary upper level trough in eastern Quebec pivots east tonight allowing the aforementioned high to shift south into the mid Atlantic. The near cloudless sky will set up cool overnight temperatures. Min temps will be in the low 50s and 40s prior to sunrise.

A weak short wave disturbance riding the northern edge of the high moves south into New York State. The wave brings with it enough moisture to return cloud cover to the region for the day Monday. The additional coverage will hold temperatures in the low 70s and upper 60s during the day.

As the first wave exits to the south overnight Monday into Tuesday, a second weak wave moves southeast from the Great Lakes into the forecast area. The 120kt upper level jet driving this wave advects more moisture for Tuesday. Precipitable water values still only hover around an inch. This means any scattered showers that may form will likely be light in nature. Little change for temperature as areas no impacted by showers will see temperatures in the low 70s.

There is a moderate risk for the development of rip currents at the ocean beaches Monday due to an increasing southeast swell.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. Temperatures will warm up significantly in the lower to mid levels Tuesday evening into Wednesday. Cannot rule out a few thundershowers as instability overall will increase into the day on Wednesday, with coverage questionable at this time. Another quick moving system then likely passes just north of the region with its associated cold front slated to come into the region late Wednesday into Wednesday night. Then questions arise into Thursday as to how far south the front will get. Clouds and a shower or thundershower chance could linger through the day on Thursday. By Friday into Friday night some of the global model guidance were attempting to get gradual height rises into the region from the southwest. The degree to which this occurs is even more in doubt now. Weak high pressure will attempt to settle in, but a weak boundary may attempt to get close from the north with the chance of an upper level trough lingering just north of the area. Much of the global guidance now sends another round of height falls into the northeast Friday night into early on Saturday. More substantial upper level ridging thus could get delayed into the latter portion of next weekend or later the following week, resulting in a series of cold fronts to potentially contend with for the late week period. Forecast uncertainty thus increases for late in the period.

AVIATION /15Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. High pressure builds into the terminals through tonight, and to the southwest Monday.

VFR through the TAF period.

NW winds 10-15 kt with gusts around 20 kt will gradually diminish this afternoon, and back to around 310 magnetic. Gusts subside during this evening. Late tonight NW winds will be under 10 kt.

OUTLOOK FOR 12Z MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY. Monday-Tuesday Afternoon. Mainly VFR. Tuesday Night-Wednesday. MVFR possible. A chance of showers. A slight chance of thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon. Thursday. MVFR possible. A chance of showers.

MARINE. Marine forecast mainly on track.

High pressure will be building toward the waters today and tonight, and to the southwest and south Monday. Winds and seas remain below SCA levels through Monday. However, occasional near shore gusts may be near 25 kt this morning on the ocean waters west of Fire Island Inlet, and across the south shore bays.

Sub-SCA continue across the forecast waters Monday night through Wednesday. Ahead of a cold front late Wednesday into Wednesday night seas may build close to 5 feet across the eastern ocean waters, and remain near 5 feet into Thursday night. Otherwise, the remainder of the forecast waters remain below SCA levels Wednesday night through Thursday night.

FIRE WEATHER. The region will be relatively dry with minimum RH values near 25-30%. Lower RH values will likely be along Long Island, northeast New Jersey and the NYC metro. The limiting factor for fire spread is winds which will could gusts 20-25 mph but overall remain below 25 mph.

HYDROLOGY. No hydrologic impacts expected through Saturday.

EQUIPMENT. NYC NOAA Weather Radio Station KWO35 (162.55 MHz) is undergoing its final stages of testing, and is operating at full 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.
