000 FXUS61 KOKX 161705 AFDOKX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 105 PM EDT Mon Oct 16 2017 .SYNOPSIS... A cold front continues to push well offshore this afternoon. A broad area of high pressure is building in from the west and will remain in control through next weekend. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/... Made a few slight adjustments with temperatures, dew points and winds through this afternoon with cold air advection and gusty winds. Great Lakes trough will sharpen as it slides towards the east coast today. While at the surface, a cold front continues to push well offshore through this afternoon. With mid/upper trough axis still to the west, and right rear quadrant jet entrance still close by, expect plenty of high clouds through the remainder of the afternoon, with high clouds hanging on a bit longer further east. Otherwise, it will feel like fall with a gusty NW flow between low pressure departing through the Canadian maritimes and strong high pressure building east from the central US. Peak gusts of 20 to 30 mph will continue into the early evening. Highs will be slightly below seasonable with temps holding in the upper 50s to lower 60s. && .SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM TUESDAY/... The shortwave trough axis approaches this evening and crosses tonight. At the surface, an associated secondary cold front moves through late today into this evening, ushering in the coldest airmass of the early fall season on gusty NW winds. Winds across outlying areas are likely to decouple late tonight, which should allow temps to radiate into the lower to mid 30s. This should allow for frost conditions late tonight across the interior of southern CT, and for the suburbs NW of NYC metro. Frost Advisory issued to address hazard. Shortwave axis moves east on Tuesday, with slight mean upper troughing in its wake. At the surface, high pressure gradually builds south of the region. Gusty N winds in the morning will gradually weaken through the day. Despite abundant sunshine, another slightly below seasonable day with cold pool overhead. Temps likely only topping out in the upper 50s to lower 60s. && .LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/... High pressure will keep the entire period dry. The only other feature passing through will be a weak and moisture-starved cold front at some point Thursday night. Each day will likely be mostly sunny with high temperatures above normal. Areas of frost are expected over parts of the Lower Hudson Valley and interior Southern CT Tuesday night. Frost is not expected for the remaining nights of the long term forecast. && .AVIATION /18Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... A cold front has moved east of the terminals this morning with a few light leftover showers possible through 15Z. Conditions will remain VFR through the period. Gusty northwest flow will prevail as the front moves east of the area. Gusts may temporarily subside in the vicinity of light showers. NY Metro Enhanced Aviation Weather Support...
