WIDESPREAD STRATUS SHOULD RETURN TONIGHT...WITH A LOW CHANCE OF LIGHT RAIN OR DRIZZLE AS NWP GUIDANCE IS NOT DEPICTING SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION. MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN FAIRLY GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGH THE SHORT TERM AS AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPS OFF THE SOUTHEAST COAST AND MOVING NORTHEAST AS IT GETS PICKED UP BY THE APPROACHING DIGGING AND AMPLIFYING UPPER LEVEL SHORT WAVE. MOST MODELS KEEP THE MAJORITY OF THE PRECIPITATION OFF TO THE EAST...HOWEVER SOME OF THE RAINFALL COULD GET INTO THE LONG ISLAND AND SOUTHERN CT REGION. IN ADDITION...SHOWERS AND POSSIBLY SOME THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE AHEAD OF THE APPROACHING COLD FRONT. FOR NOW...WILL KEEP SLIGHT CHANCE OR CHANCE POPS IN FOR MUCH OF THE DAY...HOWEVER THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT SUN COULD COME OUT FOR A PERIOD SUNDAY AFTERNOON ESPECIALLY ACROSS LONG ISLAND IF THE LOW REMAINS FURTHER EAST. THE COLD FRONT MOVES ACROSS THE REGION SUNDAY NIGHT WITH WINDS BECOMING WESTERLY. LITTLE TO NO PRECIPITATION IS POSSIBLE WITH THE ACTUAL PASSAGE OF THE COLD FRONT. SO EXPECT POPS TO GRADUALLY DECREASE LATE SUNDAY NIGHT.

HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUES TO BUILD EAST OVER THE NORTHERN ATLANTIC INTO TONIGHT. MEANWHILE...A WEAK COASTAL LOW MOVES TO A POSITION EAST OF THE NORTH CAROLINA COAST BY SUNDAY MORNING. MAINLY VFR UNTIL EARLY EVENING...THOUGH COULD SEE AN OCCASIONAL MVFR CEILING THROUGH 16Z AT WESTERN TERMINALS. BEST CHANCE OF THIS IS AT KEWR...AND IS ONLY PLACE THIS IS REFLECTED IN THE TAFS...AS CONFIDENCE IN OCCURRENCE AT OTHER SITES IS TOO LOW AT THIS TIME. MVFR CONDITIONS LIKELY TO RE-DEVELOP THIS EVENING AND POTENTIALLY LOWER TO IFR IN SPOTS LATE TONIGHT. POTENTIAL FOR PATCHY DRIZZLE OR LIGHT RAIN REDUCING VSBY TONIGHT AS WELL...BUT CONFIDENCE TOO LOW TO ADD VISIBILITY RESTRICTION AT THIS TIME. SSE FLOW AROUND 10-15 KT WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AT ALL BUT KTEB AND KSWF...WHERE WINDS SHOULD STAY BELOW 10 KT. GUSTS UP TO 20 KT LIKELY THIS AFTERNOON AT ALL BUT KSWF/KJFK/KHPN. AT KJFK OCCASIONAL GUSTS TO 20 KT CANNOT BE RULED OUT...BUT CONFIDENCE IS NOT HIGH ENOUGH AT THIS POINT TO PUT IN TAFS. WINDS BACK TO THE SE-E AT UNDER 10 KT TONIGHT...WITH INLAND TERMINALS BECOMING LIGHT AND VARIABLE. .OUTLOOK FOR 12Z SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY... .SUNDAY...MVFR TO LOCALLY IFR CONDITIONS IN MORNING...IMPROVE TO VFR.
