Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 938 AM EST Sat Jan 18 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure across the region gives way to a frontal system that impacts the region this afternoon and tonight. Polar high pressure building into the mid section of the country Sunday will then move east and into the area by mid week. The high will then remain in place through Friday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. A winter weather advisory remains in effect for most of the region from 1000 AM today through 100 AM Sunday morning.

High pressure centered over New England into the mid Atlantic was beginning to weaken and drift offshore early this morning. The forecast timing and precipitation type and changeover remain mainly consistent with the previous forecast, and model guidance, with a slight delay with the ending across the far eastern zones toward 09Z.

Warm advection light snow could begin as early as 16Z across the western zones, and have chance and slight chance probabilities. However the best forcing looks to be toward 18Z as warm advection strengthens. Precipitation will remain all snow through today. With a southerly onshore flow precipitation begins to transition to a rain/snow mix then rain. The timing of this transition may delayed dynamic cooling continues with wet bulb temperatures still below freezing along the coast at 00Z. Also, a low level jet will enhance lift and precipitation continues as moderate to possibly briefly heavy. However, another uncertainty is how quickly the lower levels warm, and will be starting off a couple of degrees warm as temperatures have fallen more slowly as high clouds have moved across the region and a light northerly flow remains. So, still expect the transition to begin 23Z to 00Z, especially the southeastern zones and continue this evening. However, far northwestern sections may not see a transition until late as the precipitation is coming to an end late tonight. Also, with the boundary layer warming a period of sleet will be possible with the transition, and have this in the weather grids.

Precipitation amounts have been trended downward slightly and Long Island coastal zones will be borderline with advisory level snowfall. However, with the lower totals there is still uncertainty with the timing of the transition to rain, so decided to leave the advisory as posted.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY/. Deep cyclonic flow will remain through Sunday as the center of the low pulls east, and a weak trough remains back across the Hudson Valley into southern New England. Models do indicate enough moisture with the trough and have some precipitation as energy continues to rotate through the longwave upper trough. Think that a few flurries will be possible inland but will leave out the mention at this time.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. The northern branch of the polar jet will briefly visit the northeast quarter of the nation next week with dry, and unseasonably cold air. This will be a far cry from where we have been this month with average temperatures at the official climate sites round 10 degrees above normal. Central Park through the first 16 days was fifth warmest all time.

After seasonable temperatures on Sunday, high temperatures through midweek will be at or just below freezing. Additionally, a gusty NW flow (up to 30 mph) on Sunday will gradually diminish Sunday night into Monday as the high approaches and low pressure departs across the north Atlantic.

For the second half of the week, the upper trough over the northeast departs and will be replaced by a southern branch upper ridge. The latter of which will be preceded by an upper low moving out into the Central Plains on Thursday and into the mid Mississippi Valley by Friday. This will allow for a gradual warmup with temperatures returning to just above normal levels by next Friday.

AVIATION /15Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. A incoming low pressure system brings accumulating snow then rain beginning late this afternoon into tonight.

VFR through the morning with light N-NE winds. Winds gradually shift to the S-SE late morning into the afternoon. S-SE Winds will increase to around 10 kt into the evening. Conditions deteriorate in the afternoon with IFR conditions expected to develop. LIFR is possible in periods of moderate snow. IFR conditions are forecast to remain through the evening improving to MVFR once the snow ends and rain begins during the evening hours.

Forecast snow amounts: NYC and NE NJ terminals: 2-4 inches, LI terminals: 1-3 inches, Lower Hudson Valley terminals: 3-5 inches, Southern CT terminals: 3-5 inches.

Light snow may begin an hour or two earlier than forecast in TAF.

OUTLOOK FOR 12Z SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY. Saturday night. IFR with Snow changing to rain southeast to northwest in evening, remaining snow well northwest. Dry conditions return overnight with mostly MVFR conds. Sunday. VFR. W-WNW gusts near 25kt day into evening. Gusts diminish late Sunday night. Monday-Wednesday. VFR, NW winds much of the period, N winds Tuesday night into Wednesday.

MARINE. No changes were made to winds and seas at this time.

Light north winds persist through the morning and afternoon hours.

SCA conditions begin late Saturday evening ahead of the frontal system. Strong south winds gusting 25-30 kts during the evening and overnight hours switch west during the day Sunday but remaining at SCA levels. Small craft conditions expand through the Long Island Sound for most of the day Sunday. By the overnight hours and into early Monday winds diminish below SCA criteria and a northwest flow 10-15 kts develops over the marine zones.

No hazards expected at this time for next week as a surface high pressure system builds over the region. This will result in light north winds of 5-10 kts with waves ranging 1-2 feet with dry rain free conditions through Friday.

HYDROLOGY. No hydrologic impacts are expected through Friday of next week.

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

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.
