&& .LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
-- Changed Discussion --
Looks fairly dry with comfortable humidity and slightly below normal temperatures through mid week. A warm front approaches on Thursday as low pressure passes across southern Canada. In its wake, a cold front sags south into NY State on Friday. The front becomes stationary near the region into the weekend - which appears will be "unsettled." Upper trough axis approaches Tuesday, passing Tuesday night. Perhaps a tad more instability Tuesday and trof/pseudo cold FROPA triggers a showers and perhaps a TS (instability is limited with dry mid levels). Wednesday is dry and then warm advection starts in on Thursday. Frontal boundary in the region, or just north, on Friday and have POPs in for TSRA. Looks to remain unsettled through the holiday weekend at this time. LI`s as low as -5 C with long narrow CAPE`s and PWAT`s over 2 inches in a unidirectional flow supports potential for Flash Flooding - mainly in urban areas. Temps come back to near seasonable on Thursday and then go above Friday into the weekend. No heat issues foreseen though.

&& .AVIATION /19Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
-- Changed Discussion --
A weak low pressure trough will move through late this afternoon into this evening. High pressure to the south will otherwise be in control. Line of showers is now moving across southern CT, with an associated gust front extending SW to the NYC metros as of 1945Z and already through KTEB/KEWR/KLGA. Gust front may get hung up over NYC and may or may not make it to KJFK, hence TEMPO forecast for a wind shift. Farther east the gust front is unimpeded, and KBDR/KISP can expect a brief wind shift to NW 10-15G20KT. Based on KTEB obs the wind shift should only last about 30-40 min at most, followed by another 30-40 min of variable winds less than 10 kt, then brief resumption of S-SW winds 10 kt or less until about sunset. SW winds should then diminish further this evening, then winds become light WNW overnight, and SW close to 10 kt by Mon afternoon, with coastal sea breeze development by 15Z-16Z. .OUTLOOK FOR 18Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY... .Monday afternoon ...Mainly VFR. Coastal sea breezes. Slight chance of a late day shower/tstm NW of NYC metros. .Tuesday...Mainly VFR. Chance of a late day shower/tstm. .Wednesday...VFR. .Thursday...Mainly VFR. Chance of a late day shower/tstm mainly north of the NYC metros and Long Island. .Friday...Mainly VFR. Chance of a late day shower/tstm at KSWF.
