AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY
348 PM EDT SAT OCT 25 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
A COLD FRONT OVER THE OHIO VALLEY LATE THIS AFTERNOON WILL MOVE
THROUGH THE TRI-STATE AREA TONIGHT. LOW PRESSURE WILL THEN TRACK
ACROSS THE CANADIAN MARITIMES ON SUNDAY...WHILE HIGH PRESSURE
BUILDS EAST FROM THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS
IN MONDAY...THEN MOVES EAST TUESDAY. A COLD FRONT PASSES ACROSS
THE AREA MID WEEK...FOLLOWED BY HIGH PRESSURE LATE IN THE WEEK.
LOW PRESSURE MAY IMPACT THE AREA EARLY NEXT WEEKEND.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/...
A DRY COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE IS ON TAP LATE TONIGHT AS A STRONG
UPPER LOW PASSES NORTH OF THE GREAT LAKES. THIS WILL RESULT IN A
PERIOD OF MODERATE TO STRONG COLD ADVECTION AND GUSTY NW FLOW
DEVELOPING TOWARD DAYBREAK. THERE MAY BE A PERIOD OF CLOUDS AS
WELL ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE FRONT AND THEN STRATA CU DEVELOPING
IN THE NW ZONES IN THE COLD ADVECTION TOWARD MORNING.

LOWS WILL RANGE FROM THE MID 40S INLAND...TO THE LOWER 50S AT THE
COAST. THIS REMAINS ABOUT 5 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL.

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/...
CYCLONIC FLOW AND CONTINUED COLD ADVECTION ON SUN WILL RESULT IN
PARTLY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES...WITH MORE SUN NEAR THE COAST.
HIGHS WILL STRUGGLE TO GET OUT OF THE MID AND UPPER 50S. STAYED
JUST A BIT BELOW MET/MAV MOS GUIDANCE...BUT HIGHER THAN 2M MODEL
TEMPS. 

IN ADDITION...GUSTY NW WINDS UP TO 35 MPH CAN BE EXPECTED AS
A STRONG PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL RESIDE ACROSS THE AREA BETWEEN LOW
PRESSURE OVER THE CANADIAN MARITIMES AND HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING
EAST INTO THE TN AND OH VALLEYS. 

SKIES CLEAR SUN NIGHT AND WINDS DIMINISH AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN
FROM THE WEST BOTH ALOFT AND AT THE SFC. LOWS WILL RANGE FROM THE
UPPER 30S INLAND TO THE MID 40S AT THE COAST. THIS WILL BE CLOSE
TO SEASONABLE VALUES.

&&

.LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
MODELS ARE IN GENERAL AGREEMENT...ALTHOUGH SLIGHT DIFFERENCES ARISE 
LATE IN THE WEEK.

IN THE UPPER LEVELS...RIDGE BUILDS MONDAY AND PASSES EAST BY 
TUESDAY. A SHORTWAVE MOVES ACROSS THE NORTHERN PORTION OF THE 
COUNTRY...PASSES ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES REGION...THEN CROSSES THE 
NORTHEAST BY WEDNESDAY OR THURSDAY. THE FLOW APPEARS TO FLATTEN AS 
THE TROUGH MOVES TO THE NORTHEAST. THEN ATTENTION TURNS TOWARD  
CENTRAL CANADA AS SHORTWAVE ENERGY DIVES SOUTHWARD ON THE BACKSIDE 
OF THE TROUGH...LIKELY CARVING OUT A DEEPER TROUGH LATE IN THE WEEK 
OR INTO THE WEEKEND. LATEST RUNS OF THE GFS AND ECMWF SHOW LOW 
PRESSURE CUTTING OFF AROUND THE GREAT LAKES REGION FRIDAY 
NIGHT/SATURDAY. HOWEVER ECMWF HOLDS THIS TROUGH/CLOSED LOW FURTHER 
WEST AS GFS IS MORE PROGRESSIVE PIVOTING THE CLOSED LOW EASTWARD. AS 
SUCH...THE PLACEMENT OF THE TROUGH/LOW DIFFERS QUITE A BIT BY SATURDAY.

AT THE SURFACE...HIGH PRESSURE MONDAY BUILDS SOUTH AND EAST OF THE 
AREA BY TUESDAY. A COLD FRONT LOOKS TO TRACK ACROSS THE REGION 
SOMETIME WEDNESDAY AS SFC LOW LIFTS WELL TO THE NORTH IN CANADA. THE 
FRONT SHOULD CLEAR THE AREA SOUTH AND EAST THURSDAY AS LOW PRESSURE 
UPSTREAM APPROACHES. THIS LOW MOVES ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES REGION 
FRIDAY. LOOKING AT ECMWF AND GFS...DIFFERENCES ARISE AS THE GFS 
DEEPENS THIS PARENT LOW MUCH MORE THAN ECMWF. ECMWF DEVELOPS A 
DEEPER WESTERN ATLANTIC LOW...DUE TO THE DIFFERENCES ALOFT ALREADY 
MENTIONED. 

IN GENERAL...DRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED MONDAY AND TUESDAY...WITH 
MINIMAL POPS WITH THE COLD FRONT LATE TUESDAY NIGHT OR WEDNESDAY. A 
FEW SHOWERS MAY LINGER JUST EAST OFFSHORE AS THE FRONT IS SLOW TO 
CLEAR THE AREA WEDNESDAY NIGHT...BUT THURSDAY IS DRY ONCE AGAIN. 
THEN...UNSETTLED CONVECTIVE WEATHER IS EXPECTED FRIDAY AND 
SATURDAY...WITH LOW CONFIDENCE IN FORECAST DETAILS AT THIS TIME.

TEMPS WILL BE CLOSE TO NORMAL MONDAY. THEN WARM AIR ADVECTION MONDAY 
NIGHT AND TUESDAY SHOULD BOOST TEMPS TO ABOVE NORMAL LEVELS. 

MILD READINGS...SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL...CONTINUE WEDNESDAY.
THEN TEMPS COOL SOMEWHAT BEHIND THE COLD FRONT THURSDAY...WITH 
READINGS BELOW NORMAL LIKELY FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. 

&&

WINDS WILL THEN INCREASE FURTHER WITH WIND GUSTS JUST BELOW GALE
FORCE ON THE OCEAN WATERS...AND 25 TO 30 KT ELSEWHERE. WINDS AND
SEAS WILL THEN GRADUALLY SUBSIDE SUN NIGHT AS HIGH PRESSURE
CONTINUES TO BUILD IN FROM THE WEST.

GUSTY WINDS DIMINISH MONDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE APPROACHES AND PASSES 
JUST TO THE SOUTH. WINDS SHIFT AROUND TO THE SW/S AHEAD OF A COLD 
FRONT TUESDAY...AND WILL INCREASE ONCE AGAIN. THE WINDS SHIFT AS THE 
COLD FRONT MOVES ACROSS THE WATERS WEDNESDAY...THEN DIMINISH AS WEAK
