MAX/MINS ARE A BLEND OF MOS WHICH HAD LITTLE SPREAD. THERE IS A MODERATE RISK FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF RIP CURRENTS ALONG THE ATLANTIC OCEAN FACING BEACHES THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING ON TUESDAY. && .LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OVER THE EASTERN HALF OF THE US WILL BE THE DOMINATING FEATURE FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE WEEK BEFORE WEAKENING THIS COMING WEEKEND. AT THE SURFACE...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD IN WED-FRI WITH A SURFACE LOW ALONG THE STALLED FRONT WELL SHORE BACKS TOWARDS THE NORTHEAST. GENERALLY EXPECTING DRY AND QUIET WED THROUGH WED NIGHT. 12Z NAM AND GFS BOTH HINTING AT ISO SHOWER/TSTM DEVELOPMENT WELL NORTH/WEST OF NYC METRO...CORRESPONDING WITH THE REGION UNDER A PASSING SHORTWAVE. HAVE BEEN GOING BACK AND FORTH THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS ON WHETHER ANYTHING WILL FORM SO WENT AHEAD AND INCLUDED A LOW END SLIGHT CHC FOR PCPN FOR THE AFTN WITH JUST ENOUGH MOISTURE IN THE LOWER ATMO BEING INJECTED IN WITH THE SWLY FLOW. OVERALL THOUGH...MAJORITY OF THE AREA WILL ENJOY DRY WX. SIMILAR STORY ON THURS WITH ANOTHER PASSING SHORTWAVE AND A BIT MORE MOISTURE IN THE ATMO...CLOSER TO NORMAL VALUES FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.

THE REGION WILL REMAIN POSITIONED THOUGH UNDER A BROAD TROUGH...WITH MULTIPLE DECENT SHORTWAVES RIDING THE FLOW...EACH BRINGING ENOUGH FORCING TO TRIGGER SHOWERS AND/OR TSTMS. HAVE ATTEMPTED TO TIME OUT THE PASSING AND INCLUDED POPS TO CORRESPOND WHERE THERE IS BETTER MODEL AGREEMENT ON THE TIMING...FRI NIGHT AND THEN AGAIN SAT AFTN/EVENING. MODELS DIVERGE HOWEVER ON THE SOLUTION SUN-MON WITH THE 12Z GFS BEING THE MORE PROGRESSION IN WEAKENING THE TROUGH INTO ALMOST A ZONAL FLOW WHILE THE ECMWF LINGERS THE TROUGH INTO THE WORK WEEK. TAKING A BLEND OF THE SOLUTIONS FOR NOW WITH THE HIGH UNCERTAINTY...HAVE MENTION OF SLIGHT CHC POPS SUN AFTN-MON EVENING. THE TREND SUGGESTS ANY PCPN SUN MIGHT BE ISOLATED IN NATURE...WITH MORE SCT SHOWERS AND TSTMS MONDAY WITH BOTH A PASSING SHORTWAVE AND THE FRONT STALLING JUST EAST OF THE AREA. AS OF NOW...THE THREAT OF ANY STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS LOOKS TO BE VERY MINIMAL. UNDER THE PERSISTING TROUGH...TEMPS WILL HOVER A FEW DEGREES BELOW NORMAL THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK.
