Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 1016 PM EST Sat Jan 25 2020

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure shifts northeast out the region tonight and strengthens as it lifts northeast into the Canadian Maritimes on Sunday. High pressure will gradually build in from the north and west Monday night through Friday. High pressure weakens Friday night and shifts east of the region Friday night into next weekend. An area of low pressure will approach for next weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/. Made some slight adjustments to temperatures, dewpoints and POPs for rain this evening. Moderate to heavy rain mainly confined to Twin Forks of Long Island and Southeast Connecticut with wind gusts at times to 30 to 35 mph there as well. Rain becoming more light and scattered in areal coverage for Southwest Connecticut and Western Suffolk County on Long Island. Most rain is expected to move east of the entire forecast region before 9 PM.

Rain will continue to shift east out of the local area this evening as low pressure exits to the northeast. Mid and upper levels dry out significantly for the overnight hours with primarily NVA. Therefore expecting dry conditions once rain exits east this evening. Low temperatures will be above normal.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY/. Cyclonic flow remains aloft with an upper low to our north Sunday. low-mid level moisture returns from the NW on Sunday, but with the best lift outrunning this moisture. Cannot rule out a rain or mixed rain/snow shower across NW Orange county late morning to early afternoon. Dry weather elsewhere with high temperatures above normal.

Surface high pressure will have a tough time building in Sunday night into Monday as the cyclonic flow aloft persists. Looks like more in the way of cloud cover versus Sunday, but likely still dry through the day. High temperatures still above normal, but probably a couple of degrees cooler than on Sunday.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. Aloft, in the mid levels, passing shortwaves in a west to northwest flow will be weakening with ridging Thursday through Friday. At the surface, the local region will be in between a low pressure trough in the Western Atlantic and a strengthening area of high pressure in South Central Canada Monday night. This high pressure area will gradually build in from the north and west through Friday. Ridging and high pressure weaken Friday night.

Weather will remain dry through Friday with temperatures near to slightly above normal. The NW winds Monday night with enough of a pressure gradient will keep winds steady and prevent ideal radiational cooling. The NW winds will be decreasing going into mid to late in the week as the high center moves closer to the area with a likewise decrease in the pressure gradient. This will allow for temperatures at night to reflect closer to ideal radiational cooling conditions allowing for more of vast range between outlying rural locations and urban areas for temperatures.

For next weekend, a large upper level low will be approaching the region. At the surface, high pressure will be shifting to the east of the region with an approaching developing offshore low pressure system. There will be chances for rain and snow. A lot of uncertainty being a week away though with a large difference in model depictions of low pressure strength, speed, and location.

AVIATION /03Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. MVFR conditions lingering until around midnight with VFR conditions there after.

Metro TAFs have already switched out of the southwest 5-10kts. Winds are expected to slowly diminish overnight.

Winds shift towards the west tonight remaining westerly through the forecast with gusts 15-20 kts in the afternoon and VFR conditions.

OUTLOOK FOR 18Z SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY. Sunday. MVFR/IFR possible in lingering showers. Rain or snow showers possible across the interior. Monday-Wednesday. VFR. Thursday. VFR.

MARINE. Winds shift westerly tonight and for Sunday on the backside of low pressure. SCA conds expected on the ocean waters all the way through Sunday night, and will probably be needed to be extended through Monday as well with gusts still around 25 kt and waves still at least 5 ft by that time. For the remaining waters, SCA remains until 8 PM tonight for South Shore Bays and until 9 PM tonight for Eastern Long Island Sound and Eastern Long Island Bays as low pressure and low level jet exit east this evening. Winds then subside for a time tonight before increasing again from the west late tonight into Sunday. Gusts here should however remain below 25 kt.

Low end SCA level wind gusts and seas are forecast on the ocean Monday night. Otherwise, the marine long term period from Monday night through Thursday night is expected to be below SCA overall.

HYDROLOGY. Additional rain amounts of up a half to three-quarters of an inches are expected into this evening, mainly across the Twin Forks of Long Island and Southeast Connecticut. Only low chances of minor nuisance flooding remains with this rain event. No hydrologic impacts are anticipated thereafter through Friday night.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Based on the latest obs and guidance, it's likely that all locations fall short of minor flooding benchmarks with during tonight's high tide cycle. Astronomical tides will be lower with this cycle, and winds will be shifting westerly. The only area that might approach minor benchmarks appears to be along the westernmost areas of Long Island sound. Not enough confidence at this time to go with a statement for this area.

EQUIPMENT. NYC NOAA Weather Radio Station KWO35 (162.55 MHz) is still operating at reduced power.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
