Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 755 AM EDT Mon Mar 30 2020

SYNOPSIS. Weak low pressure is southeast of Long Island this morning. Meanwhile a low over upstate NY weakens and brings a trough through on Monday. A backdoor cold front approaches on Tuesday morning, and yet another low will pass well south and east during mid week, followed by high pressure for late week. A cold front will approach next weekend.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Cloud cover grids adjusted this morning to account for more widespread coverage that previously forecast. All else looks to be on track.

Previous discussion .

A surface low is located southeast of Long Island this morning along a stationary front. Northeast flow is dominating with low clouds over much of the region, as the low pulls away form the coast. Northeast winds have stayed up as a result keeping fog development to a minimum through early morning.

An upper level vortex and associated surface low passes north of the area and weakens somewhat by this afternoon. This upper low will move northeast as energy rotates around its southern periphery and redevelops off the Gulf of Maine by Tuesday. At the surface, a trough accompanies the upper system and approaches the local area by Monday afternoon. An additional surface low develops along this trough, and moves offshore by Tuesday morning. Clouds will hang in for much of Monday as a result along with increasing shower chances by afternoon. The question is whether or not lift from the upper low and cold pool instability are sufficient enough Monday afternoon for any convection to impact the area. The latest runs of the high resolution CAMs are supportive of convection developing northwest of the area along the surface trough by early afternoon and approaching northwest zones by late afternoon. Model soundings in the interior indicate a few hundred J/kg of MUCAPE and some shear, so this will have to be watched. For now kept thunder out of the forecast, and shower chances will remain until Tuesday morning as the aforementioned surface low pulls away. Precipitation amounts of a few tenths are likely with any showers that do develop. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 50s under the cloud cover.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY/. As the upper low redevelops off the coast, a weak backdoor cold front moves through the area by Tuesday morning, keeping clouds and light showers in the forecast through the early afternoon. Shower chances should decrease by late Tuesday as weak high pressure begins to build in by Wednesday.

Highs on Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the upper 40s to low 50s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. A coastal storm will eject off the southeast U.S. coast and track well south and east of the region by Thursday. Dry conditions are therefore expected through then.

As the storm intensifies and expands well east of the region Thursday night, the western edge of the precipitation field will move westward toward our area. Some vorticity maxima may move through aloft, as well as spokes of surface troughs rotating around the low which will aid in the possibility for showers, but right now, looks to only be a slight chance for extreme eastern areas late Thursday night into Friday.

Thereafter, a cold front approaches for the weekend, but as of right now, due to uncertainty and light precipitation, only looks to be slight chance from Saturday afternoon through Sunday.

High temperatures will be slightly below normal Tuesday and Wednesday, then slight above normal through the rest of the long term.

AVIATION /12Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Low pressure east to southeast of Montauk Point tracks slowly eastward through the forecast period while deepening. Meanwhile another low approaches from the eastern Great Lakes through tonight and gradually weakens, becoming a trough associated with the eastern low.

The forecast is low confidence with uncertainty mainly with the winds.

MVFR, locally IFR this morning east of the NYC terminals, will become VFR early this afternoon. Conditions lower back to MVFR this evening. Scattered showers are possible much of the day with the best chance late this afternoon into early this evening with a rumble of thunder possible.

Low confidence in the wind forecast, as the gradient will remain rather weak. A prolonged period of light and variable winds is likely before winds shift to the north and northeast as the eastern low deepens. Timing of the increasing winds also is low confidence and uncertain.

KJFK TAF Comments: High uncertainty with the timing of flight category improvements and the wind speeds and directions.

The afternoon KJFK haze potential forecast is GREEN, which implies slant range visibility P6SM outside of cloud.

KLGA TAF Comments: High uncertainty with the timing of flight category improvements and the wind speeds and directions.

The afternoon KLGA haze potential forecast is GREEN, which implies slant range visibility P6SM outside of cloud.

KEWR TAF Comments: High uncertainty with the timing of flight category improvements and the wind speeds and directions.

OUTLOOK FOR 12Z TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY. Tuesday. Chance of MVFR in showers. Wednesday-Friday. VFR. NW G15-20kt Thursday and Friday.

MARINE. With a low pressure system moving southeast of the forecast waters early this morning the pressure gradient will be weakening with diminishing winds. Ocean seas will subside somewhat through this morning, however, with an E to SE swell of 5 to 6 ft remaining ocean seas are expected to remain at SCA levels through this evening across the waters west of Fire Island Inlet, and through at least Tuesday to the east, possibly into Wednesday morning.

In addition, a few gusts up to 25 kt are possible late Mon night into Tue morning E of Moriches Inlet as low pressure off to the east strengthens somewhat.

A SCA remains until 03Z Tuesday west of Fire Island Inlet, and the advisory has been extended through Tuesday to the east. The non ocean waters remain below SCA through the period.

HYDROLOGY. No hydrologic impacts are expected.

EQUIPMENT. NYC NOAA Weather Radio Station KWO35 (162.55 MHz) is undergoing its final stages of testing, and is operating at full power.

OKX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CT . None. NY . None. NJ . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until midnight EDT tonight for ANZ355. Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM EDT Tuesday for ANZ350-353.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
