000 FXUS61 KOKX 162337 AFDOKX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 737 PM EDT Mon Oct 16 2017 .SYNOPSIS... A gusty northwest flow continues behind a cold front which has moved well offshore. A broad area of high pressure is building in from the west and will remain in control through next weekend. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM TUESDAY MORNING/... Made adjustments to temperatures, dew points, and winds to reflect latest obs and trends. Clouds continue moving eastward and will clear the area tonight. Winds will slowly diminish into the overnight, therefore the Frost Advisory will remain in effect for early Tuesday morning. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/... Gusts will return for a few hours in the late morning and early afternoon. As ridging builds in from the south, winds will subside for the remainder of Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures likely only topping out in the upper 50s to lower 60s once again. Dry and seasonably cool for Tuesday night with the chance of some patchy frost across far interior zones once again. Confidence is marginal, so later shifts will have to evaluate whether a Frost Advisory will be needed for late Tuesday night. && .LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... Ridging both aloft and at the surface prevails through much of the period. Initially, a short wave trough over central Canada and the northern plains translates east during the mid week period, riding over top a broad, flat ridge over the southern half of the country. This feature sends a dry cold frontal passage through the region Thursday night. Thereafter, the upper air pattern becomes amplified with a trough moving into the western U.S., with heights building across the east. While amplified, the flow is still fairly progressive with the trough approaching the east early next week. The associated cold front approaches Monday into next Tuesday. Throughout the period, expect abundant sunshine and above normal temperatures. Daytime highs will be around 70, with lows in the mid 40s to mid 50s. && .AVIATION /00Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... High pressure builds to the west tonight, then drifts south into the mid Atlantic states during Tuesday. VFR. A NW to N flow continues tonight around 10 kt early this evening then diminishing to under 10 kt. Winds back to W then SW during Tuesday. NY Metro Enhanced Aviation Weather Support...
