Synopsis
High pressure builds today, and passes east tonight. A frontal
system approaches Wednesday, with a rapidly intensifying
coastal low tracking just southeast of the area Wednesday
night. Low pressure will depart on Thursday with high pressure
building in for the weekend. Another system will approach next
Monday and Tuesday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Upper shortwave to the north pivots east, with weak ridging
between approaching shortwave that will track across the upper
mid west today. Surface high pressure builds overhead by
afternoon.

Plenty of sunshine is expected today, along with seasonable
temperatures in the 60s. Northwest winds ahead of the high
lighten, and turn toward the south late in the day.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Wednesday night
Weak shortwave ridging and associated subsidence tonight will
give way to approaching vigorous shortwave that will amplify as
it tracks across the great lakes ohio valley region. This trough
will begin to become negatively tilted Wednesday and Wednesday
night as it tracks overhead. Deep sfc low over the great lakes
ahead of this trough tracks east, but coastal low pressure
develops around the mid atlantic states, pivoting east and
likely passing just southeast of long island by late Wednesday
and Wednesday night, deepening as it does so. This will become
the main low.

A clear night tonight along with light winds will allow
temperatures to cool into the 30s 40s, except lower 50s around
nyc. Patchy frost development is expected, and included in the
forecast.

On Wednesday, the frontal system approaches, and deep lift ahead
of the trough will result in rain development from west to east
as the day progresses. With strong lift and plenty of moisture
advection, heavy rain is likely from the afternoon into the
evening. Drying occurs behind the system for western zones
Wednesday night, with rain lingering across eastern zones
through most of the night. Included thunder mention near the
rapidly developing low, along the coast due to elevated
instability.

Qpf of 1-3 inches is likely across the region. A few higher
amounts are possible.

Temperatures will rise into the 60s Wednesday as SE winds
increase ahead of the front low.

Ahead of the low, a period of E SE winds 20 to 25 mph with gusts
30-35 mph are likely along the coast Wednesday
afternoon evening. Then in the wake of low pressure, W NW winds
of 20 to 30 mph and gusts to 40 to 45 mph are expected late
Wednesday night.

Long term Thursday through Monday
As low pressure wraps up and pulls away from the region on Thursday
strong cyclonic flow will lead to a cool, cloudy and windy day. W nw
winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts 40 to 45 mph are likely during the
day on Thursday. The highest wind gusts will be along eastern long
island and far southeastern ct. Winds will be slow to diminish
Thursday evening, and may even continue into early Friday morning
across the twin forks. Temperatures will likely stay in the 50s
during the day and drop into the 40s at night.

High pressure then builds in towards the region on Friday. With
continued NW flow, it will still be a breezy day with below normal
temperatures despite a mostly sunny sky. High temperatures on Friday
will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s with lows dropping into the
upper 30s across the interior overnight. Other locations closer to
the coast will remain in the 40s.

As upper level ridging builds and high pressure slides to the south
into the weekend southwesterly flow will set up and temperatures
will moderate to more seasonable levels.

High pressure will then slide off the mid-atlantic coast on Sunday
as another system develops across the central plains. As this system
treks eastward, moisture will increase bringing the next chance of
rain to the region late Monday into Tuesday.

Aviation 07z Tuesday through Saturday
High pressure builds in through the TAF period.VFR conditions are
expected for all terminals.

Initially, winds will be NW 5-10 kts and these will eventually
become more SW this afternoon at nearly the same wind speed with
developing sea breeze for coastal terminals. Winds become light
again tonight, 5 kts or less, and become generally more se.

Outlook for 06z Wednesday through Saturday
Late tonight Vfr. Winds become more se.

Wednesday Rain developing. Ifr late afternoon evening, lingering
past midnight at kgon. SE winds g25kt. Llws also possible along the
coast late afternoon evening, mainly at kisp kgon. Isolated
thunderstorms possible for kisp and kgon late afternoon evening.

Thursday Possible MVFR with showers. NW winds g25-35kt.

Friday Vfr. NW winds g20-25kt.

Saturday Vfr.

Marine
Northwest winds across the waters this morning lighten as high
pressure builds. Winds shift around to the south southeast late
today into tonight. SE winds increase to 20-25 kt as the day
progresses Wednesday, so SCA has been issued. Seas build during
this time.

By Wednesday night, deep low pressure passes across the ocean
waters, tracking east Wednesday night. SE winds will shift
around the W NW behind this deepening low. Gale force winds are
likely at that time, and cannot rule out a few strong force
gusts briefly right behind the low over the eastern waters. A
gale watch has been issued beginning Wed night.

Gale conditions will remain on all waters for Thursday before
falling back to SCA levels Thursday night. SCA wind gusts will
subside late Friday afternoon. Winds and seas will then remain below
sca criteria through the weekend.

Hydrology
A significant rainfall of 1-3 inches is likely Wednesday
afternoon into Wednesday night, with localized swaths of 2-4
inches possible. The bulk of the rainfall is expected in a 6-9
hr period late Wednesday afternoon through Wednesday evening.

Urban, poor drainage, and low lying flooding is expected. There
is a low probability of flash flooding along a few of the fast
responding small rivers and streams in NE nj and the lower
hudson valley if the higher rainfall amounts are realized.

Additionally, localized flash flooding will also be an issue
for coastal roads if heaviest rain coincides with the Wed night
high tides.

Tides coastal flooding
Tidal departures of generally 2 to 2 1 2 ft above astronomical
are needed for minor flooding during the times of high tide late
wed eve into Wed night. There continues to be quite a bit of
spread in the ensemble guidance, partly due to some differences
in the potential strength and position of low pressure wind
fields, and equally so due to timing of a wind shift from e-se
winds to NW as low pressure moves by. At this point, model
consensus would indicate potential for widespread minor coastal
flooding, with a low probability for localized moderate impacts
where wave action combines with elevated water levels.

If the heaviest rain coincides with the Wed night high tide,
more widespread flooding could be experienced than would
normally be expected.

Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo35 (162.55 mhz) remains off the
air.
