844 PM EDT MON APR 20 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
A WAVE OF LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE ACROSS THE REGION OVERNIGHT.
WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL FOLLOW FOR TUESDAY. A COLD FRONT WILL PASS
ON WEDNESDAY...ALLOWING FOR A COOL AIR MASS TO SETTLE IN LATE THIS
WEEK INTO THE WEEKEND.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM TUESDAY MORNING/...
WARM FRONT APPEARS TO BE FROM CENTRAL NJ TO JUST SOUTH OF NYC TO
ACROSS LONG ISLAND AS OF 00Z. SHOWERS CONTINUE ACROSS THE FORKS
OF LONG ISLAND AND SE CT...WITH VERY LIGHT RAIN/DRIZZLE ELSEWHERE.
MORE SHOWERS AND ISOLATED TSTMS WILL RETURN LATE THIS EVENING AND
OVERNIGHT AS WEAK LOW PRESSURE NEAR THE EASTERN WV PANHANDLE MOVES
INTO THE AREA OVERNIGHT AND INTO SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND BY MORNING.

INSTABILITY IS ALL ELEVATED THIS EVENING...THUS NO SVR WX HERE.
MAIN CONCERN IS FOG. ISSUED A DENSE FOG ADVISORY EARLIER...AND
HAVE EXPANDED TO ALL AREA ALONG WESTERN LONG ISLAND SOUND
INCLUDING S WESTCHESTER...THE BX AND NORTHERN QUEENS WITH LGA DOWN
TO 1/4 MILE. ADVY IN EFFECT FOR THE LOWER HUDSON VALLEY DUE TO
THE ELEVATED TERRAIN. THE DENSE FOG WILL ALSO LIKELY DISSIPATE
WITH THE SHOWERS OVERNIGHT.

TEMPS SHOULD REMAIN MOSTLY STEADY OVERNIGHT...BUT COULD RISE LATE
ACROSS LONG ISLAND AHEAD OF THE TRIPLE POINT LOW.

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/...
SHORTWAVE IS FORECAST TO MOVE THROUGH IN THE MORNING WITH
STRONGER LIFT GENERALLY OVER THE NORTHERN ZONES. HAVE KEPT A
CHANCE FOR SHOWERS IN THERE. OTHERWISE...TURNING PARTLY TO MOSTLY
SUNNY. HIGHS ARE A MOS BLEND.

&&

.LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
H5 LOW CURRENTLY SPINNING OVER MN/WI WILL SLOWLY TRACK EWD THRU
THE WEEK...THEN STALL OVER QUEBEC AND NRN ME THIS WEEKEND.
THE APPROACHING H3 JET ON WED APPEARS IT SHOULD PRODUCE ENOUGH
UPR DIVERGENCE TO ALLOW FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SHWRS. IN
ADDITION...THERE SHOULD BE SOME LLVL CONVERGENCE AS THE ASSOCIATED
CDFNT TRACKS THRU. AS A RESULT...INDICATED SCT SHWRS IN THE FCST.
AS THIS SYS SLIDES OFFSHORE WED NGT...THE PCPN ENDS AND THE
REMAINDER OF THE FCST PERIOD IS DOMINATED BY CYCLONIC FLOW ALOFT
AND MRGNL MID LVL LAPSE RATES. THE STEEPEST LAPSE RATES WILL BE N
OF THE CWA ACROSS NRN NEW ENGLAND. WILL THEREFORE FCST FAIR WX
THU-MON. SCT-BKN CLOUDS...ESPECIALLY DURING THE DAY...AS TEMPS HIT
CONVECTIVE WHICH IS PROGGED TO BE IN THE UPR 40S TO 50S PER GFS
BUFR DATA. THERE COULD EVEN BE PERIODS OF OVC SKIES AS THE CU
FLATTENS DUE TO DECENT SHEAR. CANT RULE OUT SOME ISOLD
SPRINKLES...BUT THE PROB IS TOO LOW ATTM TO INCLUDE IN THE FCST.
TEMPS A BLEND OF GUIDANCE AND GENERALLY BLW CLIMO THRU THE
EXTENDED. HIGHS COULD BE A LITTLE WARMER THAN FCST ON WED
DEPENDING ON THE AMT OF CLOUD COVER AND SPEED OF THE DEVELOPING
SHWRS AHEAD OF THE FRONT.

&&
