956 PM CDT Sun Sep 24 2017 .UPDATE... Issued at 956 PM CDT Sun Sep 24 2017 Removed precipitation mention for this evening, maintained a chance southwest overnight. Sky cover was tweaked based on latest satellite imagery with partial clearing occurring west. High res models redevelop clouds across the west overnight. Not certain this will happen. Otherwise the forecast remains valid. UPDATE Issued at 635 PM CDT Sun Sep 24 2017 Scaled back further on POPs, otherwise no major changes to the inherited forecast for tonight. Updated hourly trends with observations. && .SHORT TERM...(This evening through Monday) Issued at 251 PM CDT Sun Sep 24 2017 Cool and wet weather continues late this afternoon and evening with light rain continuing to taper off and push eastward. Most of state remains on cold side of surface low currently located near far southeast ND. WV imagery shows deep upper trough centered over northern Utah with good fetch of moisture continuing to stream northward into the central and eastern Dakotas. RAP analysis shows several weak embedded shortwaves in the flow, helping support a few pockets of light rain across central ND, with best forcing over eastern ND associated with upper level 120kt jet right entrance region. High res models are in decent agreement with rain continuing to diminish across our area through the afternoon and evening. Will be another cool night with lows in mid 30s west to low 40s east. NBM initialized sky cover well this afternoon, including decreased clouds just northwest of our area, so blended cloud cover forecast toward NBM for overnight sky cover, which gives some clearing across the northwest, which could enhance cooling. Have included patchy frost across portions of the west. Increased pops across southwest and central ND on Monday as upper level trough across the west lifts east/northeastward with trough axis across eastern Montana by 00z Tuesday. .LONG TERM...(Monday night through Sunday) Issued at 251 PM CDT Sun Sep 24 2017 Continued low pops into Tuesday morning as trough lifts east of the Dakotas by 00z Wed, while upper level ridge develops across the western CONUS, putting the Northern Plains in northwest flow by Tuesday night. Dry weather then expected until late Wed night/Thursday as embedded shortwave in cyclonic flow aloft brushes mainly northern and eastern parts of the state, with low pops in place. Upper ridge migrates eastward late in week, supporting a warming trend. Early week high temps remain in the 50s with a warming trend to the 60s by Wednesday and approaching 70 by Sat/Sun as ridge axis moves overhead. && .AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Monday evening) Issued at 635 PM CDT Sun Sep 24 2017 MVFR/IFR conditions will continue at all sites, with low ceilings in place through majority of forecast period. Best chance for improvement to VFR is KISN, which may see ceilings improve this evening/overnight. && .BIS WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... NONE. && $$ UPDATE...NH SHORT TERM...JNS LONG TERM...JNS AVIATION...NH

National Weather Service New York NY
1035 PM EDT Sun Sep 24 2017 .SYNOPSIS... High pressure will prevail through the first half of this week. Meanwhile, Hurricane Maria is forecast to track north and pass east of the Carolinas on Wednesday before getting kicked out to the east by an approaching cold front. The front will move through Wednesday night into early Thursday. High pressure builds in for Thursday and Friday. A weak low pressure area moves through the region Saturday with high pressure returning for Sunday. Refer to the latest National Hurricane Center advisories for the official forecast on Maria. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM MONDAY MORNING/... Forecast is generally on track, however backed off on the extent of cloud cover overnight into Mon morning. Expecting similar sky conditions as last night with perhaps some stratus making into the east end of Long Island and portions of New London county overnight. HRRR seemed to have a good handle on current cloud cover so it was used for the majority of the night. NARRE supports this. Additionally, clear conditions and light to calm winds will be favorable for fog development late tonight. Thinking extent should be similar or slightly more widespread than last night with the same airmass in place. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/... Another sunny/warm day expected on Mon, though not quite as warm as today with onshore flow more prevalent. High temps will range from the upper 70s/lower 80s near the coast, to mid 80s most elsewhere, to the upper 80s well inland, still above MOS guidance. With another night of onshore flow, low stratus and fog should be more prevalent as well, mainly inland NW of NYC, and also across eastern CT/Long Island. Low temps should be near or slightly cooler than those expected tonight, in the upper 50s and 60s. Swells from distant Hurricane Maria will continue to produce a high rip current risk and high surf. && .LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/... A strong upper ridge and surface high will be remaining across the region Tuesday as Hurricane Maria moves east of the Carolinas. The ridge slowly weakens Tuesday night into Wednesday as a shortwave digs into the upper midwest and Great Lakes region. The increasing westerly flow with the trough will steer Maria eastward from the Carolinas, and into the Atlantic, Wednesday night through the end of the week. There will be little moisture from the tropical cyclone and the cold front moving into the region and will have mainly slight chance to low chance probabilities. With a continuation of the easterly flow Tuesday into Wednesday, low clouds and fog, with drizzle, will be possible. Will include for Tuesday morning only at this time. Refer to the latest advisories from the National Hurricane Center for the official forecast on Maria. Anomalous warmth will remain across the region until the cold frontal passage, when temperatures return to more seasonal levels. The forecast becomes more uncertain after Thursday as a re- enforcing shortwave moves through the longwave trough and sends another cold front into the region Saturday. At that time temperatures may fall below seasonal normals. Due to long period swells from Maria, there is likely to be a high rip current risk through the week. && .AVIATION /02Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/... High pressure remains across the region through the TAF period. VFR through around 06z. Expect similar conditions as last night...although perhaps MVFR/IFR fog is a bit more widespread outside of NYC terminals. The stratus may also make it into KGON overnight as opposed to last night. VFR returns 12z to 14z Monday morning which will remain for all terminals during the day Monday. Light and vrb winds overnight through early Monday morning and then increase to 5-10 kt out of the E-SE into Monday afternoon. .OUTLOOK FOR 00Z TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY... .Monday night-Tuesday...MVFR or lower conditions possible with areas of fog and/or stratus and drizzle outside city terminals. .Tuesday night-Wednesday...MVFR or lower conditions possible with patchy fog and/or stratus and a low chance of showers. .Wednesday night-Thursday...MVFR or lower possible with isolated to scattered shower activity. .Thursday night-Friday...Mainly VFR. && .MARINE... Long period swells are producing 5-ft swells on the outer portion of the coastal waters E of Fire Island Inlet. Expect 5+ ft swells to reach all ocean waters overnight. SCA for hazardous seas in effect thru Tue, and those seas should be with us into late week. Long period swells will continue to produce hazardous seas on the ocean waters at least through the forecast period, Friday. On the non ocean waters winds and seas will remain below advisory levels until Thursday. Gusty winds develop behind a cold frontal passage Wednesday night into early Thursday. Northwest small craft gusts will be possible late Thursday, Thursday night and into Friday across all the forecast waters at that time. && .HYDROLOGY... No hydrologic problems anticipated. && .OKX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... CT...None. NY...High Rip Current Risk through Monday evening for NYZ075-080- 081-178-179. High Surf Advisory from 6 AM to 9 PM EDT Monday for NYZ080-081. NJ...None. MARINE...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas until 6 PM EDT Tuesday for ANZ350-353-355. && $$
