Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 429 AM EDT Thu Apr 2 2020

SYNOPSIS. Deep low pressure well east of Long Island meanders today through Friday, tracking west then south. Friday night the low tracks out into the Atlantic. High pressure will build across the area this weekend before a weak cold front crosses the area Sunday night. High pressure then briefly returns on Monday, followed by an approaching frontal system for the middle of next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. A nearly vertically stacked low within an elongated upper trough and closed low will remain well east of Long Island today, drifting slowly westward with weak steering flow and a blocked pattern. Precipitation with the low will be moving into the eastern zones around midday through this afternoon. Gusty northwest winds were already increasing across the eastern zones, and strong and gusty winds will spread westward through the day. With increased clouds and the northerly flow temperatures will not have much variability across the region with highs near to slightly above seasonable normals.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM FRIDAY/. The low continues to retrograde through tonight, then take a turn to the south Friday, moving away from land late Friday afternoon. Periods of rain will spread westward across the entire region with the west most extent late tonight into early Friday morning. The rain on the periphery of the low may become more scattered as the precipitation moves into a ridge across the central Great Lakes and into the Ohio river valley. The rain is expected to be light through the event as thermal forcing remains rather weak with more barotropic characteristics to the low. Gusty northwest winds will continue through tonight with the closest approach of the system.

Temperatures will be near to slightly above normal for the end of the week.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. The surface and upper lows finally begin to pull away, initially to the south, then to the east Friday night. Have delayed the ending of the precipitation. And after a lingering chance of rain across portions of Long Island, southeastern Connecticut, and into the New York City metro Friday evening, dry weather will return overnight along with gradually decreasing clouds. High pressure then builds across the region for the weekend, resulting in dry and at least partly sunny conditions. A weak upper trough moves through the ridge Saturday into early Saturday evening and may bring a period of increased cloudiness.

Clouds will gradually increase Sunday afternoon as a weakening cold front approaches from the west. With the front weakening as it reaches the area, rain chances look fairly limited at this time, but think a few showers are possible Sunday evening into Sunday night. High pressure then briefly builds back across the area on Monday before the weather turns unsettled for the middle of the week as a frontal system approaches the area Tuesday into Wednesday. Numerous model differences remain in the timing and evolution of this system. For now have rain chances gradually increasing through the day on Tuesday with better chances on Wednesday, but it is likely that at least a portion of this period will remain dry.

After near normal highs on Saturday, temperatures through the remainder of the long term period will generally be above normal. Daytime highs will range from the low to mid 50s along the immediate south facing coasts to the low to mid 60s for NYC and areas north and west. Overnight lows will generally remain in the 40s.

AVIATION /09Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Low pressure well offshore will begin to slowly move west through Thursday. As a result, NW winds increase to 10-15G20kt before daybreak in the metros and along the coast, then increase throughout to 20-25G30kt by afternoon. Some light rain with MVFR cigs may back westward to KGON, KISP and KBDR mid to late morning.

OUTLOOK FOR 06Z FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY. Thursday night. MVFR cigs possible for NYC terminals on east with chance of rain. NW winds 15-20G25-30kt. Friday. MVFR cigs with chance rain. NW winds G20-25kt. Saturday and Sunday. VFR. Monday. MVFR cigs morning, with chance of rain.

MARINE. A strong oceanic low pressure remains northeast of the area into Thursday. The low then meanders south and east of Long Island on Friday. Winds increase on all waters to SCA levels Thursday morning, continuing into Thursday night. SCA conditions are likely on the ocean waters and Eastern LI Sound and Eastern LI Bays into early Friday. A period of occasional gales are possible on the waters east of Moriches Inlet Friday afternoon. Gale conditions may linger into Friday night on the ocean east of Moriches Inlet, with SCA gusts possible for portions of eastern LI sound, Peconic and Gardiners Bays, and the ocean waters west to Fire Island Inlet.

Seas will build to about 4 to 6 feet across the western ocean by Thursday evening and to 6 to 8 feet across the east ocean by Friday morning. Seas will continue to build to 8-10 feet on Friday afternoon and evening across the southeast ocean through Saturday. Seas will remain elevated on the ocean through the day on Sunday.

HYDROLOGY. Rainfall late Thursday through Friday evening is expected to total from up to a tenth of an inch across northeastern New Jersey, the lower Hudson Valley, and New York City to a third of an inch across southeastern Connecticut and the twin forks of Long Island.

No hydrologic impacts are expected through the middle of next week.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Minor coastal flooding benchmarks may be reached for Friday morning and Friday evening high tide cycles. The greatest potential for this to occur is for the south shore back bays, with a lower risk across the western Long Island Sound. More widespread minor coastal flooding is possible for Saturday mornings high tide.

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.
