The high will remain in control through the weekend. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/... Slight adjustment to temperatures and winds for the next few hours, otherwise forecast mainly on track. Frosty conditions did occur across a good swath of Central and Northern Orange County this morning...otherwise temperatures recover for the late morning and early afternoon. An upper shortwave axis moves east today, with slight mean upper troughing in its wake. At the surface, high pressure to the west gradually builds to the south of the region. Any wind gusts this morning will subside quickly. By the afternoon winds go variable to a light WSW direction with high pressure starting to settle on top of the region. Another slightly below seasonable day expected with cold pool overhead, despite wall to wall sunshine. Temps likely only topping out in the upper 50s to near 60 for most locations. && .SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM WEDNESDAY/... Slight shortwave upper ridging builds into the region during this period, while surface high pressure gradually slides south of the region. Good radiational cooling conditions likely tonight across interior with a favorable waa aloft setup for decoupling; allowing temps to fall into the lower to mid 30s once again. Frost conditions are likely once again late tonight across the interior of southern CT and for the suburbs NW of NYC metro. After collab with surrounding offices, will hold off on Frost Advisory just yet to see if any interior areas experience a hard freeze early this morning, ending their growing season. For city and coast, increasing potential for mixing as the night wears on in strengthening return flow, which may keep or bounce temps into the 40s. Lower 50s likely for the NYC metro. Sunny skies and a gradual moderation in temps begins on Wednesday as SW return flow develops around the high to the south. Temperatures should warm to slightly above seasonable levels in the upper 60s to lower 70s. && .LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/... Ridging both aloft and at the surface prevails through much of the period. Only a weak and dry cold front passage occurs Thursday night as the flow aloft turns cyclonic for a short period.

Expect abundant sunshine throughout the period with daytime highs averaging around 7-10 degrees above normal. && .AVIATION /16Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
