671 FXUS61 KOKX 240607 AFDOKX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 107 AM EST Fri Nov 24 2017 .SYNOPSIS... High pressure will move slowly off the coast through Friday. This will be followed by a cold front late Saturday. High pressure will then follow through Tuesday. A cold front will move across the area Wednesday followed by high pressure Thursday. && .NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/... Mid level trough axis moves across late this evening with some associated mid level clouds, mostly across the interior locations. Expect these to diminish later overnight into daybreak Friday. With light winds, still expecting some decent radiational cooling. Used 18Z MAV guidance to better reflect these lows overnight with more of a range from low 20s to low 30s. High pressure will remain centered over the mid atlantic states with a W flow near 10 mph tonight. Temperatures will remain 5 to 10 degrees below normal. && .SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH 6 PM SATURDAY/... Fair weather with increasing temperatures are on tap for the local area. Low level warm air advection will develop by Friday afternoon and increase Friday night as a strong low pressure system moves east across southeast Canada, north of New England. Southwest winds will transport warmer air northeast across the region, bringing near normal temperatures during the day Friday then above normal temperatures Friday night. && .LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/... A cold front will be approaching from the Ohio Valley Saturday. Models do not have a significant amount of precipitation forecast with this frontal passage. Temperatures on Saturday will be in the low 50s along the coast and mid to upper 40s inland. Pressure gradient will increase behind the front on Saturday night and into Sunday, which will increase winds to 15 to 20 mph. Temperatures Saturday night will be in the mid to upper 30 to near 40. High pressure builds in on Sunday into Tuesday. Temperatures in the mid to upper 40s Sunday and Monday will begin to rise into the low to mid 50s by Tuesday, which is above normal for this time of year. A cold front is forecast to move across the area Tuesday night into Wednesday. Moisture associated with this front is expected to dissipate as it approaches our area and the frontal passage may end up being precipitation free. Even with the frontal passage, temperatures are forecast to be above normal into Wednesday. High pressure builds back on Thursday with temperatures in the upper 40s to lower 50s. && .AVIATION /06Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
