SYNOPSIS
A series of surface troughs will pivot through during the first half of the weekend. A high pressure ridge briefly works in Saturday night into Sunday morning. A weak wave of low pressure will drag a warm front followed by a cold front through Sunday night into Monday morning. High pressure takes over Monday, potentially followed by a warm front front moving in late Tuesday into Wednesday. Unsettled weather will continue into the end of the week as low pressure passes near the region.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/
Surface low pressure over southeastern Canada will trek northward tonight as the associated cut off upper low moves into New England. A weak trough may provide some additional lift for showers for western portions of the forecast area, mainly well north and west of New York City for the first part of tonight.
As the surface trough moves through and weakens late tonight, the chances for precipitation decreases, with just a slight chance for the western half of the forecast area.

SW flow tonight should diminish and turn a bit more toward the west, but gusts of 25 to 30 mph should still be possible given strong cold air advection, which looks to become stronger on Saturday. However, winds may shift a bit more toward the S later tonight prior to the trough moving through, but then should shift more toward the WSW toward daybreak.

The cold air advection should also allow lows tonight to drop to the 40s region- wide.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/
Another surface trough or two look to move through Saturday associated with the back edge of the broad surface low in southern Canada. There may be some additional lift with the upper level trough that will be moving through around the same time as the surface trough. A somewhat organized, but weak area of showers looks to move across the western half of the forecast area in the morning into the early afternoon.

Winds will increase on Saturday, with gusts around 35 mph across the forecast area with good mixing with cold pool aloft and pressure gradient still in place on the back side of low pressure in southeastern Canada. Any showers may contain brief gusty winds, but much of the time it should remain dry with more of a classic V inverted profile.

With a cooler air mass now in place, temperatures are expected to be slightly below normal for Saturday, in the lower to middle 50s.

Dry condition expected Saturday night with a ridge of high pressure moving into the region. Lows will be near to slightly above normal.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
Sunday starts off with a high pressure ridge at the surface nosing in from the south. The day should be primarily dry, but clouds do increase in advance of a frontal system to the north and west. The front will be moisture starved, thus only chance to slight chance PoPs getting later in the day and mainly across the interior. A southwest flow ahead of the front should allow temperatures across the interior to climb into the middle and upper 60s to near 70.
Closer to the coast, highs will only reach the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Showers along with an a threat of an isolated rumble of thunder will continue into Sunday night. A cold front pushes across the area from the north late Sunday night, with high pressure building back into the region in its wake. The high will remain in place through Tuesday.

Another low pressure system and frontal system impacts the region towards the middle and end of the week. A slow moving warm front will lift towards the area Wednesday and Thursday, followed by a cold front on Friday. Will stick with just chance POPs for now.

Temperatures will remain above normal for much of the week.

AVIATION /21Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
Strong low pressure near the eastern Great Lakes will lift slowly north cross eastern Canada through the TAF period.

Mainly VFR into tonight. SW winds bcmg W overnight with gusts around 25kt. Light spotty showers are possible until around sunset but limited impacts at the terminals.

On Saturday, low end VFR expected in stratocumulus cloud cover/ceilings. Spotty showers still possible Saturday mainly NW and W of the city terminals. Westerly winds gust 30-35kt Saturday.

...NY Metro (KEWR/KLGA/KJFK/KTEB) TAF Uncertainty...

Potential for prevailing sustained winds and gusts to be up to 5kt lower than forecast from 00z to around midnight.

OUTLOOK FOR 18Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...

Sunday: Mainly VFR. Chance of MVFR and showers in the afternoon.
SW-W winds G20-25kt.

MARINE
SCA gusts are expected across all waters to start off the tonight period. Winds will diminish through the night however, and there may be a period of sub-SCA winds, but decided to keep the SCA up as winds will increase once again towards daybreak Saturday. Winds on the ocean look to increase to gale force once again, so issued another Gale Warning for Saturday for these waters, while all non-ocean waters will sea SCA gusts. Winds diminish late in the day into Saturday night, falling below SCA levels everywhere after midnight.

Waves on the ocean waters will diminish tonight to 5 to 10 ft, remaining steady for Saturday as winds increase again, then further diminish Saturday night, but remain above 5 ft through the night. For the sound, wave are expected to remain below 5 ft through tonight, then increase to 3 to 5 ft Saturday as winds increase, then diminish to below 5 ft around midnight. The extreme eastern sound may hang on to 5 ft seas a bit longer.

Small craft conditions will continue on Sunday as a SW flow increases out ahead of a cold front. Conditions remain elevated Sunday night and gradually diminish during the day Monday. Sub small craft conditions are then likely Monday night with lighter winds and lowering seas into the middle of next week.

No hydrologic concerns exist throughout the forecast period.
