AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY
1059 PM EDT FRI AUG 22 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS SOUTH ACROSS THE NORTHEAST THROUGH THE
WEEKEND INTO NEXT WEEK. A COLD FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE WEST ON
THURSDAY.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/...
SHOWERS HAVE ENDED ACROSS AND NEAR THE CWA. RESIDUAL SHOWERS OVER
E CENTRAL PA ASSOCIATED WITH THE EXIT REGION OF A WEAK H3 JET ARE
ALSO WEAKENING WITH TIME AND WILL NOT POSE A THREAT TO THE LOCAL
AREA WITH THEIR SLOW MOVEMENT. SHOULD BE MOSTLY DRY
OVERNIGHT...WITH PERHAPS SOME SHOWERS DEVELOPING TO THE N TOWARDS
MORNING AS ANOTHER SHORTWAVE TROUGH DROPS DOWN FROM NORTHERN NY.
THERE'S NOTHING ON THE SCOPE ATTM...BUT WILL NEED TO MONITOR THIS.
HAVE SCHC POPS COVERING THIS. OTHERWISE...JUST SOME MINOR
ADJUSTMENTS TO HOURLY T/TD/WINDS BASED ON LATEST OBS AND TRENDS.

TEMPS RIGHT AROUND NORMAL FOR TONIGHT...IN THE UPPER 50S TO MID
60S UNDER CLOUDY SKIES. COULD SEE PATCHY FOG WITH SOME MOISTURE IN
THE LOWER LEVELS WITH THE EASTERLY FLOW.

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/...
UPPER LVL TROUGH BEGINS PIVOTING OUT OF THE REGION AS THE STRONG
RIDGING OVER THE CENTRAL US BEGINS TO NUDGE EASTWARD. AT THE
SURFACE...THE HIGH PUSHING SOUTH FROM CANADA WILL TAKE HOLD OF THE
REGION...KEEPING THE PASSING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEMS WELL SOUTH OF
THE AREA. KEPT THE AREA DRY FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THE DAY...THEN
INTRODUCED POPS ONCE AGAIN FOR THE AFTN WITH THE PASSING OF THE
FINAL SHORTWAVE/ASSOCIATED VORT MAX. SLIGHT DIFFERENCES IN THE 12Z
MODEL SOLUTIONS ON WHERE THE PASSAGE OCCURS...BUT OVERALL THINKING
THE BEST CHC...IF ANYTHING DOES FORM...WILL BE WEST OF NYC METRO.
BECAUSE CONFIDENCE IS LOW OF OCCURRING AND OF ANY
COVERAGE...CAPPED POPS AT SLIGHT CHC...WITH HIGHER CONFIDENCE MOST
THE AREA REMAINS DRY. THE SHORTWAVE EXITS EARLY SAT NIGHT...WITH
DRY CONDITIONS FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE NIGHT.

YET ANOTHER DAY OF HIGHS A FEW DEGREES BELOW NORMAL WITH THE
CONTINUAL ONSHORE FLOW AND CLOUDY CONDITIONS. SKIES FINALLY START
TO SCATTER OUT TOMORROW NIGHT...WHICH COULD LEAD TO LOW TEMPS TO
DROP SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL.

&&

.LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
HIGH PRESSURE SLOWLY BUILDS SOUTHWARD INTO THE REGION THROUGH THE 
TAF PERIOD.

VFR WITH AN EASTERLY FLOW THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. THERE ARE FEW 
TO SCATTERED CLOUDS AROUND 2500 FT ALONG THE COAST WHICH MAY BECOME 
BROKEN FOR A FEW HOURS THROUGH 06Z.

.OUTLOOK FOR 00Z SUN THROUGH WED...
.SAT NIGHT-WED...VFR.

&&

.MARINE...
GENERALLY SUB-SCA CONDITIONS IN PLACE THROUGH THE WEEKEND WITH
HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING SOUTH OVER THE WATERS. PERSISTENT EASTERLY
FLOW MAY BUILD THE OUTER EDGES OF THE OCEAN WATERS TO AROUND 5 FT
TOMORROW MORNING AND AFTERNOON...BUT MAINLY EXPECTING BETWEEN 3-4 FT FOR
THE OCEAN AND 1 FT OR LESS ELSEWHERE. GUSTS AT MOST WILL REACH 20
KTS ON THE OCEAN.

QUIET CONDITIONS ACROSS ALL AREA WATERS EXPECTED THEN TO LAST
