AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY
1036 PM EDT TUE JUN 30 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
A WARM FRONT JUST TO THE SOUTH WILL LINGER NEARBY INTO WEDNESDAY
MORNING...THE LIFT TO THE NORTHEAST BY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. A COLD
FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS WEDNESDAY NIGHT. CANADIAN HIGH PRESSURE
WILL BUILD ACROSS THE AREA FROM THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY. WAVES OF
LOW PRESSURE WILL TRAVERSE A STATIONARY FRONT TO THE SOUTH THROUGH
THE WEEKEND. A WARM FRONT WILL LIFT THROUGH ON MONDAY...WITH A
COLD FRONT APPROACHING MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING/...
ML MUCAPES BEGINNING TO INCREASE OVER WESTERN ZONES...BUT MOST OF
THE INITIAL SHOWERS/TSTMS TAPERING OFF. AREA OF SHOWERS/TSTMS
IMPACTED WESTERN ORANGE COUNTY WITH ESTIMATED RAINFALL TOTALS
AROUND 1 INCH...AND A SECOND WAVE OF SHOWERS/TSTMS CURRENTLY
SPREADING OVER WESTERN ORANGE COUNTY. HAVE ISSUED A FLOOD ADVISORY
THERE THROUGH LATE THIS EVENING AS AN ADDITIONAL INCH OR SO OF
RAIN IS POSSIBLE.

APPROACHING SHORTWAVE...IN TANDEM WITH THE LINGERING WARM
FRONT...SHOULD HELP REGENERATE SHOWERS AND TSTMS LATE...WITH
LIKELY POP FOR ALL OF NYC METRO AND CHANCE ELSEWHERE.

LOWS WILL BE NEAR 70 IN NYC...AND IN THE 60S ELSEWHERE.

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/...
EXPECT LIKELY TO CAT POP FOR SHOWERS AND SCT TSTMS WED MORNING AS
THE WARM FRONT AND ASSOCIATED UPPER LEVEL FORCING MOVE ACROSS.
CANNOT RULE OUT LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN AND GUSTY WINDS WITH THE
STRONGEST OF THIS ACTIVITY.

IN THE WAKE OF THE WARM FRONT...BEST MOISTURE AXIS APPEARS TO
SLIDE EAST OF THE REGION. SO UNCERTAINTY FOR AFTERNOON CONVECTION
IN TERMS OF AMOUNT DESTABILIZATION BEFORE AFTERNOON SHORTWAVE
PASSAGE. SCATTERED AFTERNOON SHOWERS/TSTMS ARE POSSIBLE AHEAD OF
THE COLD FRONT WELL INLAND...WITH ISOLD ACTIVITY ELSEWHERE. STILL
A MARGINAL CONDITIONAL THREAT FOR A FEW STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS
IN THE EARLY TO MID AFTERNOON.

SETUP DOES NOT LOOK FAVORABLE FOR WIDESPREAD CONVECTION LATE IN THE
AFTERNOON INTO EVENING AS SHORTWAVE LOOKS TO BE PIVOTING EAST OF
THE REGION. COVERAGE MAY BE MORE ISOLATED ALONG THE LAGGING COLD
FRONT AS IT PASSES THROUGH...WITH A DIMINISHED SEVERE THREAT DUE
TO SUBSIDENCE AND A DRYING AIR MASS.

HIGHS ON WED WILL BE FROM THE UPPER 70S ALONG THE COAST...TO
LOWER 80S MOST ELSEWHERE...TO MID/UPPER 80S IN NYC AND NE NJ.
LOWS WED NIGHT WILL BE SLIGHTLY COOLER THAN THOSE OF TONIGHT...AT
LEAST OUTSIDE OF NYC...WITH SOME UPPER 50S POSSIBLE WELL INLAND.

THERE IS A MODERATE RISK FOR RIP CURRENTS AT OCEAN BEACHES ON
WEDNESDAY.

&&

.LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
A FRONTAL SYSTEM SETTLES SOUTH OF THE AREA ON THURSDAY...AS HIGH
PRESSURE BUILDS ACROSS THE AREA THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. ON
SATURDAY...LATEST MODELS HAVE TRENDED FARTHER SOUTH WITH
PRECIPITATION...THERE IS STILL SOME CHANCE OF MOISTURE TRIGGERING
SOME SCATTERED SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS...BUT WILL LOWER POPS FOR MOST
OF THE AREA SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. TEMPERATURES ON SATURDAY
SHOULD BE IN THE UPPER 70S TO LOWER 80S. DRY WEATHER IS THEN
EXPECTED ON SUNDAY...WITH CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS IN FOR MONDAY
NIGHT AS A WARM FRONT IS PREDICTED TO LIFT THROUGH THE AREA. A COLD
FRONT IS THEN EXPECTED TO APPROACH THE AREA MONDAY NIGHT INTO
TUESDAY.

TEMPS ARE EXPECTED TO BE NEAR SEASONABLE LEVELS THROUGH THE
EXTENDED PERIOD.

&&
