000 FXUS61 KOKX 260259 AFDOKX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 1059 PM EDT MON JUL 25 2016 .SYNOPSIS... A cold front moves through the region overnight. High pressure builds to the west Tuesday and moves off the southeast coast Wednesday into Thursday. A weak cold front approaches the region Friday and will linger into the weekend. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM TUESDAY MORNING/... The area of showers continues to move quickly east and south and updated grids to end precipitation sooner. Rain cooled, and humid, airmass remains across the region ahead of a cold front. The front at 02z was still across upstate New York. The front is forecast to move through after 06Z. Drier air moves in behind the cold front with dew points lowering into the lower and mid 60s. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/... Quasizonal flow prevails as cold front settles just east and high pressure builds. With 850 hpa temps still running in the high teens...deep mixing...downslope flow and full sunshine...expect temps to quickly rise into the lower to mid 90s. Noticeably lower dewpoints should keep heat indices close to air temps...but close enough for heat advisory for NYC metro. Sea breezes should be limited to late day and immediate south coasts...if at all. High pressure builds Tuesday night. Lows range from the lower 60s well inland to the lower 70s in and around NYC metro. && .LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... Dry Wednesday and Wednesday night as high pressure builds, and zonal flow aloft remains. Sfc front approaches Thursday ahead of mid/upper level weak trough, and it appears that the upper trough amplifies just a bit. The front may settle nearby through the weekend. This sets the stage for unsettled weather with chances for showers and thunderstorms through Sunday. Temperatures will average above normal Wednesday and Thursday, then temperatures settle back closer to normal thereafter. && .AVIATION /03Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
