AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY
1101 PM EDT FRI OCT 24 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
LOW PRESSURE NEAR THE CANADIAN MARITIMES WILL CONTINUE TO DEPART
TONIGHT. A COLD FRONT APPROACHES THE REGION SATURDAY AND MOVES
ACROSS THE REGION SATURDAY NIGHT. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS ACROSS THE
AREA SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY...THEN OFFSHORE BY TUESDAY. ANOTHER
COLD FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE REGION WEDNESDAY. HIGH PRESSURE
BUILDS BACK ACROSS THE AREA THURSDAY.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 7 AM SATURDAY MORNING/...
BRIEF TIGHTENING OF THE PRESSURE GRADIENT THROUGH 09Z AS HIGH
PRESSURE BUILDS IN...WITH OCCASIONAL GUSTINESS. WINDS SHOULD RELAX
TOWARDS DAYBREAK AS HIGH PRESSURE NOSES IN.

CLEARING SKIES AND WEAKENING WINDS LATE SHOULD ALLOW FOR A LATE
DECENT RADIATIONAL COOLING WINDOW...ALLOWING LOWS TO DROP INTO THE
MID AND UPPER 30S ACROSS THE INTERIOR...IN THE LOW TO MID 40S MOST
ELSEWHERE...AND IN THE UPPER 40S TO LOWER 50S IN NYC LATE TONIGHT.

IF WINDS DECOUPLE EARLIER THAN PREDICTED TEMPS ACROSS OUTLYING
AREAS COULD DROP A FEW MORE DEGREES...LEADING TO PATCHY FROST
FORMATION IN INTERIOR VALLEYS AND PINE BARRENS. THIS IS A LOW
PROBABILITY AT THIS TIME.

&&

.SHORT TERM /7 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/...
WEAK HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS OVER THE REGION ON SATURDAY...PROVIDING 
MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES AND DRY CONDITIONS. A COLD FRONT WILL APPROACH 
FROM THE WEST LATE IN THE DAY SATURDAY...AND MOVE ACROSS THE REGION 
SATURDAY NIGHT. WILL CONTINUE TO GO WITH A DRY FORECAST SATURDAY 
NIGHT...HOWEVER THERE COULD BE SOME CLOUD COVER WITH THE FRONT. 

EXPECT HIGH TEMPERATURES ON SATURDAY TO CLIMB INTO THE 60S...WHILE 
SATURDAY NIGHT LOWS FALL INTO THE 40S. FOLLOWED A MAV/MET BLEND OF 
GUIDANCE FOR TEMPERATURES.

&&

.LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN THE WAKE OF THE COLD FRONT DURING SUNDAY. 
ITS RIDGE AXIS PASSES THROUGH DURING MONDAY...AND WILL BE OFFSHORE 
ON TUESDAY. DRY WEATHER ALL THREE DAYS...BUT BREEZY ON SUNDAY. HIGH 
TEMPERATURES NEAR NORMAL FOR SUNDAY...BUT A LITTLE COOLER ON MONDAY 
DUE TO MORE LIMITED MIXING. A RETURN FLOW WITH SW WINDS WILL HELP 
PUSH HIGH TEMPERATURES ABOVE NORMALS ON TUESDAY.

A COLD FRONT APPROACHES TUESDAY NIGHT AND PASSES THROUGH ON 
WEDNESDAY. PASSAGE APPEARS TO BE SLOW DUE TO THE FRONT BECOMING 
ALIGNED WITH THE FLOW ALOFT. WILL GO WITH LOW CHANCES OF SHOWERS 
FROM LATE TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY EVENING. RIGHT NOW IT 
LOOKS LIKE THE DAYTIME HOURS OF WEDS HAVE THE OVERALL BEST CHANCE OF 
SHOWERS. WEAK HIGH PRESSURE RETURNS DRY WEATHER ON THURSDAY.

MODELS DIFFER FOR FRIDAY. GFS HAS TRENDED TOWARDS ECMWF WITH A 
POTENTIAL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM AFFECTING THE REGION. SUPPORT FROM 
ENSEMBLE MEANS ARE NOT GREAT SO FAR...BUT WORTH AT LEAST SLIGHT CHC 
POPS.

TO THE SOUTH ON SAT. A COLD FRONT WILL APPROACH SAT NIGHT. 

HIGH CONFIDENCE IN VFR CONDS. BKN VFR CIGS OVER MOST OF LONG
ISLAND AND SOUTHERN CT WILL SLOWLY MOVE EAST TONIGHT. 

A WEAK LOW PRESSURE TROUGH INVOF NYC IS DISSIPATING..WITH WINDS
BECOMING NW AROUND 10 KT WITH GUSTS 15-18 KT LATE THIS EVENING.
