Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 1050 AM EDT Wed Sep 30 2020

SYNOPSIS. On the heels of a cold frontal passage, intensifying low pressure moves north from northern New England into Quebec. A weak cold front will approach later tonight and stall nearby Thursday into Thursday night. Low pressure will develop along the front Thursday night and pass near or just east of the waters on Friday. After returning high pressure this weekend, another frontal system could impact the area Sunday night through Monday night.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. Cold front has passed east of the area with clearing skies and gusty W-SW winds.

Mostly sunny and breezy conds will follow for late this AM and this afternoon, with W-SW winds gusting 25 to 35 mph, especially closer to the coast. High temps will be around 70.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM THURSDAY/. Gusts will gradually diminish, with skies mostly clear for most of the night, then some clouds arrive late mainly from NYC west with the approaching weak cold front. Lows will be near 60 in NYC, in the 50s most elsewhere, and in the upper 40s well NW of NYC. Another mostly suny day expected on Thu with highs in the 70s.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. A light to moderate rainfall expected late Thu night into Fri as an approaching upper trough interacts with the stalled weak front, with a weak sfc low passing just to the SE on Fri. After this low passes, colder air will move in, with temps falling to around 5 degrees below seasonal levels for the weekend and in the beginning of next week.

Surface high pressure builds for the weekend, then another shortwave moving through the upper trough will develop a low across the Mississippi Valley that will translate to the northeast and mid Atlantic coast Sunday night and Monday. With this system there is more uncertainty with the timing and placement than the Thursday night Friday system.

AVIATION /15Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Behind one cold front, another cold front approaches late tonight into Thursday.

Some lingering MVFR stratocumulus will scatter out this afternoon. Otherwise, VFR conditions are expected through the TAF period.

Mainly southwest winds 15-20kts with gusts 25-30kts today. These gusts should begin to drop off tonight with southwest sustained winds of 10-15 kt.

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

End time of wind gusts could vary by a few hours compared to TAF.

OUTLOOK FOR 12Z THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY. Thursday. Mainly VFR. SW wind gusts 15-20 kt. Friday. MVFR possible with a chance of rain showers. Saturday and Sunday. VFR.

Detailed information, including hourly TAF wind component forecasts, can be found at: http:/www.weather.gov/zny/n90

MARINE. Following a cold frontal passage, SCA conditions on all waters today. WSW winds today will still gust to 25-30 kt, with ocean seas 6-9 ft.

Quiet conds should return to the non ocean waters tonight, but lingering hazardous ocean seas will take some time to subside, lasting into at least Thu AM west of Fire Island Inlet and through Thu afternoon to the east if not a few hours longer.

Brief SCA conds possible on the ern ocean waters Fri afternoon as a sfc low passes E and NW winds briefly gust up to 25 kt.

HYDROLOGY. Additional rainfall is possible late Thursday night through Friday evening, with another storm impacting the area Sunday night into Monday night. Hydrologic impacts are not expected.

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.

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