Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 703 PM EDT Wed Jul 8 2020

SYNOPSIS. Weak high pressure remains through Thursday. Low pressure will slowly move up the Mid-Atlantic coast Friday into Saturday, followed by a series of weak fronts moving through the region through early next week. High pressure builds in for the middle of the week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THURSDAY MORNING/. Minor update to temps/dewpoints and pops to better reflect current conditions. Otherwise, convection will gradually dissipate going into early this evening as instability decreases. A mild and humid night is in store as on the large scale, the forecast region remains in the warm sector with light S-SW flow at the surface.

Upper levels show a ridge north of the region. There is a lack of steering flow in the mid to low levels. Lows tonight will range from the upper 60s to lower 70s.

A moderate rip current risk continues into this evening due to relatively long period SE-S swell of 3 ft and S flow 10-15 kt.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/. For Thursday, the humid airmass remains with flow becoming more S-SE in the afternoon. More subsidence is evident in the mid levels for Thursday. Convective coverage will be much less. However, with the expected warmer temperatures (expecting overall a few degrees warmer than the previous day), instability will increase and a few showers and thunderstorms will be possible with daytime trough development, mainly north and west of NYC. Trough again is very weak so any convection will quickly subside in the evening with loss of daytime heating.

Regarding the heat advisory, this was kept up since heat index values are again expected to reach the mid to upper 90s and for NYC and northeast NJ this will be the second day in a row for heat index values of at least 95 degrees. Wednesday's occurrences of heat indices in the mid 90s were more isolated and this coverage is expected to be greater for Thursday afternoon. So, the heat advisory remains in place until 6pm Thursday.

For Thursday night, the upper level ridge axis moves east of the region and the low pressure will begin to approach from the south and west. Clouds will increase Thursday night and with the continued onshore flow, min temperatures forecast will be mild in the upper 60s to lower 70s once again. Chances for rain showers increase overnight into daybreak Friday.

There is a moderate risk for rip current development at Atlantic Ocean beaches on Thursday as long period southerly swell continues.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Low pressure will move up the Mid Atlantic coast on Friday, passing over the region Friday night into Saturday morning. Showers and thunderstorms are expected, especially Friday afternoon and evening likely just north and east of the surface low as it pulls subtropical Atlantic moisture. Still low confidence on location of the heavy rain potential.

An upper-level trough and its associated cold front will move into the area Saturday, resulting in hot and humid conditions and the increase chance for showers and thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday. The cold front will move off to the east Monday, but the upper-level trough will remain overhead bringing a potential for diurnal convection as well as a gradual trend to a more seasonable airmass through early next week. High pressure builds back across the area for the middle of the week.

Temperatures during the long term period will be in the upper 80s to near 90 with overnight lows in the upper 60s to mid 70s.

High rip current risk is possible for Friday.

AVIATION /22Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. A surface trough across the region this afternoon will give way to weak high pressure for Thursday.

Showers and thunderstorms have dissipated across the terminals.

A mainly VFR forecast this evening. There in the potential for MVFR conditions to redevelop from east to west overnight into early Thursday morning, with IFR conditions possible at KGON.

A few gusts to 15-20 kt will continue through late afternoon, primarily at coastal terminals. Otherwise, southerly winds around 10 kt will continue before winds decrease to 5 kt or less overnight. Winds then return out of the south at 5-10 kt Thursday morning.

OUTLOOK FOR 18Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY. Thursday afternoon-Thursday night. Low chance TSRA northwest of NYC metros. Chance MVFR or lower in stratus Thursday night. Friday-Saturday. MVFR or lower conditions likely in showers and thunderstorms. Chance E-SE gusts 20-25kt for Friday into Friday night. Sunday-Monday. MVFR or lower possible at times with a chance of showers and thunderstorms.

MARINE. The pressure gradient will remain relatively weak through Thursday night. Conditions on the forecast waters will remain below SCA thresholds.

As a coastal low pressure approaches from the south, SCA conditions are expected mainly on the ocean waters from Friday and into the weekend. Seas will subside slightly on Sunday but will remain above SCA conditions through early in the week.

HYDROLOGY. Urban and poor drainage flood threat exists with any thunderstorm activity through Thursday. Main reason being a lack of steering flow so thunderstorms will be slow moving. Convective coverage will be more isolated Thursday.

There is increasing potential for a moderate to heavy rainfall event Friday into Saturday as a coastal system moves up the Mid- Atlantic coast. Exact timing and track are still uncertain, but this system has the potential to produce at least 1 to 2 inches of rain with higher amounts possible with heavier bands.

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

OKX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CT . None. NY . Heat Advisory until 6 PM EDT Thursday for NYZ072>075-176-178. NJ . Heat Advisory until 6 PM EDT Thursday for NJZ004-006-103>108. MARINE . None.

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.
