Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 349 PM EST Tue Jan 21 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will dominate across the northeast and id Atlantic regions through Thursday, then retreat to the north on Friday. Low pressure will impact the region this weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING/. Surface high pressure will remain across the area through tonight. An upper level trough along the eastern seaboard was weakening and moving into the western Atlantic, as heights slowly rise across the forecast region. There was some high level moisture with this trough and high clouds across the region will be moving out this evening as the trough shifts offshore. Tonight will be good radiational cooling conditions once again with the outlying region falling into the teens and some single digits in the normally colder locations.

SHORT TERM /6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/. Heights continue to rise through Wednesday as a ridge builds into the east coast. The ridge will then remain through Wednesday night. High level moisture will move back into the area Wednesday night as the ridge weakens somewhat and moistures spills over the ridge. Meanwhile surface high pressure remains across the area. Weak warm advection sets up late tonight and continues through Wednesday and Wednesday night. Temperatures will be modifying Wednesday and Wednesday night.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. High pressure will be overhead on Thursday with dry weather, sunshine mixed with some cirrus, and high temperatures generally in the mid 40s. The dry weather continues on Friday with high pressure in control. It's shaping up to be similar to Thursday regarding sky conditions and temperatures.

A closed 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 or nearby late Saturday night. Global models are in decent agreement with the track and timing of the storm, but differ with the thermal profile. 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 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. This of course is subject to change as we're still 4 days away from the event and the energy aloft driving the storm is just arriving into better RAOB sampling tonight into tomorrow.

High pressure builds in behind the storm with dry weather for Monday and Tuesday. Highs both days about 5 degrees above normal.

AVIATION /21Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. High pressure builds from the west through tonight and remains in control on Wednesday.

VFR. Winds fluctuate between NW and NNW with speeds around 10 kt or less through this evening. Winds then diminish to 5 kt or less tonight, becoming light and variable at many outlying terminals.

OUTLOOK FOR 18Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY. Wednesday afternoon-Friday night. VFR. Saturday-Saturday night. MVFR/IFR in developing rain at the coast, mixed precipitation across the interior. E winds 10-15G15-25 kt diminish overnight. Sunday. MVFR/IFR possible in lingering showers. Rain/snow mix possible in any showers across the interior.

MARINE. A weak pressure gradient remains across the forecast waters through Wednesday night as high pressure dominates. Winds and seas will remain below advisory levels.

Tranquil conditions on the waters continues Thursday and Thursday night with a high pressure ridge over the region. 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 could build to 5 ft by the end of the day Friday, but more likely 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 5ft or greater seas on the ocean through the day on Sunday.

HYDROLOGY. Dry weather is expected through Friday.

A widespread precipitation event is likely this weekend. Precipitation amounts remain uncertain at this time therefore it is still too early to determine what impacts may occur.

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

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
