AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY
155 PM EDT MON JUL 28 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL TRACK THROUGH NEW ENGLAND THIS
AFTERNOON AS THE COLD FRONT MOVES ACROSS THE LOCAL AREA. THE COLD
FRONT PUSHES EAST TONIGHT...SETTLING WELL OFFSHORE THROUGH THE
MIDDLE OF THE WEEK AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS. LOW PRESSURE
APPROACHES AGAIN FOR NEXT WEEKEND.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
998 HPA SFC LOW NEAR ALBANY NY AS OF 1 PM. THE COLD FRONT IS NEAR
THE KBDR TO KISP LINE. SHOWERS ASSOCIATED WITH THE INSTABILITY AND
THE UPPER LOW WERE ROTATING ACROSS NORTHERN PENNSYLVANIA.

FORECAST CONTINUES ON TRACK. CAP IS WEAKENING WITH AN ISOLATED
SHOWER NOW NORTH OF KSMQ IN NORTHERN NJ. CAPE IS NARROW WITH LOTS
OF DRY AIR ALOFT. BELIEVE LATEST HRRR HAS A GOOD HANDLE ON THE
SITUATION. WILL CONTINUE WITH THE CHC POPS - HIGHEST NORTH. 

WILL LIKELY DROP THE MENTION OF SEVERE IN THE HWO COME 3 PM WITH
LITTLE IF ANY DIRECTIONAL SHEAR AND LIFTING LCL'S, MAIN WX STORY
IS THE LATE JULY WINDS WHICH WILL GUSTS UP TO 30 MPH AS WE MIX UP
TO 800-850 HPA.

THERE REMAINS IS A MODERATE RISK FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF RIP
CURRENTS ALONG THE ATLANTIC OCEAN FACING BEACHES DURING THE DAY
TODAY.

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM TUESDAY/...
ANY DIURNALLY DRIVEN SHOWERS/TSTMS DIMINISH IN COVERAGE/INTENSITY
THIS EVENING AS POTENT SHORTWAVE PIVOTS NORTHEASTWARD. EVENING
WINDS DIMINISH AS SKIES GRADUALLY CLEAR. LOW TEMPS SHOULD RANGE
FROM THE LOWER/MIDDLE 50S ACROSS THE INTERIOR TO THE LOWER 60S
NEAR THE COAST.

&&

.LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
UPPER LEVEL TROUGH DIGS SOUTH TUES THROUGH MID WEEK WITH A CLOSED 
LOW HOVERING JUST NORTH OF THE GREAT LAKES. WITH MINIMAL PROGRESSIVE 
MOVEMENT ALOFT...THE COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED TO PUSH EAST...BUT THEN 
STALL OFFSHORE. IT SHOULD PUSH JUST FAR ENOUGH EAST TO HAVE MINIMAL 
IMPACT THROUGH THE COMING WEEK...BUT WILL COME BACK INTO THE PICTURE 
FOR THE COMING WEEKEND. AS THE SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE 
BUILDING IN BEHIND THE FRONT AND WILL MAINTAIN HOLD OF THE REGION 
THROUGH THURS. SHORTWAVE ROTATING ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE TROUGH 
COULD TRIGGER AN ISO SHOWER/TSTM TUES AFTN OVER FAR NORTH AND 
WESTERN EDGES OF THE AREA...BUT WITH A MUCH DRIER AIR MASS MOVING 
IN...COULD LIKELY WILL END UP BEING A DRY DAY. THE NEXT MENTION
OF PCPN COMES THURS AFTN WITH A RETURN FLOW SETTING UP OVER THE
REGION...INJECTING IN A SLIGHTLY MORE MOIST AIR MASS. THE CLOSED
LOW ALOFT FINALLY PUSHES OFF TO THE NORTHEAST...THOUGH A LONGWAVE
TROUGH STILL WILL PERSIST OVER THE EASTERN HALF OF THE US FOR THE
END OF THE WEEK. THE PATTERN STILL BRINGS THROUGH MULTIPLE
SHORTWAVES THURS-FRI...EACH BRINGING A SLIGHT CHC IN TRIGGERING AN
ISO SHOWER OR TSTM.

LOW PRESSURE FORMS ALONG THE STALLED FRONT BY THIS WEEKEND...RIDING 
THE FRONT WHILE SLOWLY APPROACHING THE AREA. GENERAL MODEL CONSENSUS 
BRINGS THE SFC LOW NEAR THE TRI STATE AREA BY SUN MORNING. ENOUGH 
FORCING ALOFT ROUNDING THE BASE OF THE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH SHOULD 
COMBINE WITH THE SFC LOW TO PRODUCE SCT SHOWERS AND TSTMS...ESP FOR 
LATER SAT THROUGH SUN. 

TEMPS REMAIN NEAR STEADY THROUGH THE COMING WEEK...A FEW DEGREES 
BELOW NORMAL.

&&

IMPACTING ANY GIVEN TERMINAL...SO WILL LEAVE OUT OF THE LATEST
TAFS. WILL INCLUDE A TEMPO GROUP FOR SOME SHOWERS AT KSWF...AS THE
BULK OF THE ACTIVITY WILL STAY NORTH OF THE REGION. VFR CONDS
