AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY
332 AM EDT FRI JUL 25 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD IN FROM THE WEST THROUGH FRIDAY AND THEN 
OFFSHORE FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY. A WARM FRONT MOVES THROUGH
SATURDAY NIGHT...FOLLOWED BY A COLD FRONT MONDAY. HIGH PRESSURE
BUILDS IN BEHIND THE COLD FRONT BY MID WEEK NEXT WEEK.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN AT THE SURFACE AS THE UPPER TROUGH AXIS 
PUSHES OFF TO THE EAST. THE COLUMN SHOULD CONTINUE TO DRY OUT DURING 
THE MORNING...ALLOWING FOR PLENTY OF SUNSHINE. A MAV/MET BLEND 
YIELDS TEMPS A COUPLE OF DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. THESE TEMPS COMBINED 
WITH DEW POINTS IN THE 50S WILL MAKE FOR QUITE A COMFORTABLE
FRIDAY.

AS THE HIGH DRIFTS OFFSHORE...WINDS WILL SLOWLY TURN MORE S/SW. 
ADDITIONALLY...A WEAK THERMAL TROUGH WILL HELP A SEA BREEZE DEVELOP. 

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM SATURDAY/...
AN H5 SHORTWAVE PASSES ACROSS THE AREA ON FRIDAY NIGHT...BUT NOTHING 
MORE THAN A SMALL INCREASE IN CLOUDS EXPECTED. WITH CONTINUED S/SW 
FLOW ACROSS THE AREA...INCREASING MOISTURE WILL KEEP LOWS WARMER 
THAN THE PREVIOUS NIGHT...CLOSER TO NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.

THE FLOW WILL CONTINUE TO STRENGTHEN ON SATURDAY AS ANOTHER 
SHORTWAVE APPROACHES THE REGION AND A SFC TROUGH TO OUR WEST 
DEEPENS. WITH A WARM FRONT APPROACHING FROM THE SW...INCREASING LIFT 
WILL ALLOW FOR A FEW SHOWERS/STORMS ACROSS WESTERN AREAS LATER IN 
THE DAY. MOST AREAS WILL REMAIN DRY THROUGH SATURDAY THOUGH...SO 
ONLY SLIGHT CHC POPS AT THIS TIME. HIGH TEMPS WILL BE A FEW DEGREES 
WARMER THAN THE PREVIOUS DAY...PRIMARILY ACROSS THE INTERIOR WHERE 
THE MARITIME INFLUENCE WILL NOT BE FELT. 

&&

.LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/...
GLOBAL MODELS IN AGREEMENT ON CLOSED LOW OVER EASTERN CANADA WITH 
GENERAL TROUGH EXTENDING ACROSS THE NORTHEAST INITIALLY. THEN 
SHORTWAVE OVER THE UPPER MID WEST WILL ROUND THE BASE OF THIS 
TROUGH. THE TROUGH AMPLIFIES ACROSS THE NORTHEAST BY EARLY NEXT 
WEEK. IN TIME...THE TROUGH WEAKENS AS HEIGHTS SLOWLY RISE ACROSS THE 
NORTHEAST UNITED STATES.

AT THE SURFACE...LOW PRESSURE TRACKS TO THE NORTH SATURDAY NIGHT AND 
SUNDAY AS A WARM FRONT PASSES THROUGH THE AREA. A COLD FRONT 
APPROACHES LATE SUNDAY AND SLOWLY MOVES ACROSS THE AREA MONDAY. IN 
FACT...LOW PRESSURE LOOKS TO DEVELOP ALONG THE FRONT IN OUR VICINITY 
AS IT MOVES THROUGH.

THE COLD FRONT MOVES AND REMAINS JUST EAST OF THE AREA AS HIGH 
PRESSURE BUILDS IN BY MID WEEK NEXT WEEK.

OVERALL...ECMWF...GEFS MEAN AND GFS APPEAR TO BE IN GENERAL 
AGREEMENT ON OVERALL FEATURES.

TEMPS SHOULD AVERAGE AROUND NORMAL SUNDAY AND MONDAY...THEN LIKELY 
FALL A FEW DEGREES SHORT OF NORMALS LEVELS BEHIND THE FRONT TUESDAY 
THROUGH THURSDAY. THE COLDEST AIR REMAINS TO THE WEST...ACROSS THE 
GREAT LAKES REGION. OVERALL...DO NOT ANTICIPATE A LARGE DISPARITY IN 
TEMPS THROUGH THIS TIME FRAME.

&&

.AVIATION /08Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
HIGH PRESSURE SLOWLY BUILDS IN FROM THE WEST. A WEAK SURFACE
TROUGH DEVELOPS WEST OF NYC IN THE EARLY AFTERNOON.

A LIGHT NORTH TO NORTHEAST FLOW CONTINUES THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT AND 
INTO EARLY FRIDAY. SEA BREEZES ARE EXPECTED TO IMPACT KBDR/KGON AROUND

SO LOWER FOR THE OCEAN WATERS.
