Synopsis
High pressure builds to the north through the weekend, and across
the canadian maritimes early next week. Low pressure may pass south
and east of the local area through the middle of next week, followed
by a slow moving cold front during the second half of the week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Updated to capture the latest observational trends, otherwise
the forecast remains on track.

High pressure builds to the north today while a trough lingers
across the area aloft. With a significantly drier airmass in place,
this should result in mostly sunny and pleasant conditions with
just a few fair weather clouds. Highs will range from the mid
70s to around 80.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Sunday
High pressure settles over maine Saturday night, allowing east to
northeast flow to become established across the region. While
Saturday night is expected to remain dry, clouds will begin to
increase as the low levels moisten. By Sunday morning, light rain
and drizzle is possible, primarily across coastal areas. While an
increase in cloud cover is expected farther inland across northeast
new jersey and the lower hudson valley, conditions there should
generally remain dry.

High temperatures on Sunday are expected to remain several degrees
below normal for late august, only topping out in the mid 70s.

There is a moderate risk of rip current development at atlantic
ocean beaches on Sunday.

Long term Sunday night through Friday
As the high gradually drifts to the east, light rain and or drizzle
could linger into Sunday night for some locations, with clouds
lingering into the day on Monday under persistent east to northeast
flow.

Attention then turns to the potential for tropical development off
the southeast coast and a slow moving cold front that approaches the
region during the mid to late week period. At this time, any
potential tropical system would bring mainly indirect impacts to the
region as global models continue to be in good agreement with this
system passing well south and east of the area. For the local area,
this could result in the potential for coastal flooding and
dangerous rip currents, depending on the exact strength and track of
the system. See the tides and coastal flooding section for more
details on the coastal flood potential.

A cold front then approaches the region late Wednesday, moving
slowly through the area on Thursday. While differences remain,
models are in much better agreement with respect to the timing of
this system than 24 hours ago. High pressure builds in for Thursday
night into Friday.

After below normal temperatures again on Monday, near normal
temperatures are expected through the remainder of the long term
period, with highs generally in the lower 80s and overnight lows
falling into the mid 60s to around 70.

Aviation 12z Saturday through Wednesday
High pressure over the great lakes builds to the north of the
terminals this weekend.

Vfr through much of the TAF period. There is a chance for MVFR
ceilings near the coast early Sunday morning.

Ne winds around 10 kt through the day. There could be few gusts
15-20 kt through 15z, mainly at the coast. There is also a low
chance for a SE sea breeze at jfk, isp, bdr and gon in the late
afternoon or early evening. NE winds continue tonight at 5-10
kt.

Outlook for 12z Sunday through Wednesday
Sunday MVFR possible, with a slight chance of light rain or
drizzle. NE gusts 20-25 kt possible along the coast.

Monday MainlyVFR. NE gusts 20 kt along the coast.

Tuesday MainlyVFR. Slight chance of showers.

Wednesday Chance of MVFR in afternoon showers and isolated
thunderstorms.

Marine
A prolonged period of SCA conditions is possible Sunday into
the middle of the next week. Initially, with high pressure to
the north strong northeasterly flow sets up Sunday into Monday,
with gusts of 25-30 kt on the ocean and seas building to 4 to 6
ft. Waves are then likely to remain above 5 ft on the ocean
waters through the mid-week period as a tropical cyclone
potentially develops and tracks south and east of the waters.

Wave heights and wind gusts remain uncertain at this time due to
the uncertainty in the exact track and strength of the storm.

Hydrology
No hydrologic impacts are anticipated through the middle of next
week.

Tides coastal flooding
A prolonged period of easterly flow will increase tide levels over
the next several days. Localized minor coastal flooding is possible
with Monday and Tuesday afternoon evening high tides along the south
shore back bays of queens and nassau counties.

Equipment
Nyc NOAA weather radio station kwo35 (162.55 mhz) remains off
the air.
