SYNOPSIS
A cold front stalls just offshore overnight, followed by a second front approaching Wednesday, and moving through into Wednesday night. A weak surface trough moves east of the region Thursday. High pressure builds in later Thursday through Saturday night. A weakening low passes slowly to the west and north Sunday through Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING/
Mid level trough continues to advance east into the region and helps scoot a weak cold front farther offshore overnight.

Any convective and shower activity has dissipated to the west and north during the late evening. Thus, a quiet and comfortable night for late spring with dew point readings primarily in the 50s. Dry and mild conditions overnight as temperatures only fall back into the middle 50s to lower 60s overnight.



SHORT TERM /6 AM WEDNESDAY THROUGH 6 AM THURSDAY/
Trough axis shifts over the Northeast on Wednesday as an embedded shortwave swings through. The cold pool aloft, cyclonic flow, and advancing surface boundary should allow showers to develop into the Lower Hudson Valley by early afternoon, with the activity then spreading east across the rest of the region mid to late afternoon.

Despite ample sunshine and a well-mixed BL, conditions appear only marginal for thunderstorm development, with relatively light unidirectional shear, modest CAPE under 1000 J/kg, and surface dew points in the 50s. Still, a few thunderstorms may embed in this activity and advance east into the evening hours.
SPC continues to outline the region in a general thunder, which seems reasonable given the above.WEDNES

The front moves through in the evening, and a surface trough lingers as a trailing weak wave of low pressure passes just offshore overnight, keeping a chance for showers into Thursday morning, especially along the coast. QPF from this system will be light outside any heavier convective elements, generally under a quarter inch.

Temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than on Tuesday, climbing into the mid to upper 70s for most during the afternoon, or about normal for late May. A general light flow from the west veers more northerly overnight behind the fropa helping to advect drier air into Thursday.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/
An upper level trough from southeastern Canada into the mid Atlantic states will be moving into the western Atlantic during Thursday as a high amplitude ridge builds east from the upper midwest and Great Lakes region. The ridge moves into the western Atlantic Sunday with the flow becoming zonal. A weak, low amplitude shortwave will be moving into the ridge and there will be mainly slight chances of precipitation late Sunday night into Tuesday, mainly inland, where there is better instability and surface convergence.

Temperatures will be near to slightly above seasonal normals Thursday into Saturday, with a slight warmup Sunday into the beginning of next week.

AVIATION /03Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
Weak cold fronts pivot through overnight and into Wednesday.

VFR through Wednesday morning, with sub VFR chances increasing Wednesday afternoon and evening. A chance at seeing scattered showers and TSRA for the afternoon after 20Z. For now thunder handled in the TAFs with PROB30 groups.

Winds generally light overnight, and down around 5 kt at many outlying terminals. NW/W winds around 7-10 kt continue Wednesday with coastal terminals (KJFK, KISP, KBDR, KGON) becoming more SW to S due to seabreeze influence in the afternoon.

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

No unscheduled AMD expected.

OUTLOOK FOR 00Z THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...

Wednesday night: Periods of MVFR or lower with chance of showers and tstms, mainly during the evening.

Thursday: Chance of showers with MVFR cond possible.

Friday and Saturday: VFR.

Sunday: Mainly VFR. Low chance of MVFR with any rain showers.
