000 FXUS61 KOKX 031829 AFDOKX AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY 229 PM EDT TUE MAY 3 2016 .SYNOPSIS... AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE WILL PASS SOUTH OF LONG ISLAND TODAY. WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL THEN BRIEFLY FOLLOW TONIGHT. A COMPLEX AND SLOW MOVING STORM SYSTEM WILL IMPACT THE TRI-STATE FROM WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY. A COLD FRONT CROSSES THE AREA ON SUNDAY. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/... MINOR UPDATES THIS AFTERNOON. SPOTTY LIGHT RAIN REMAINS A POSSIBILITY THROUGH THE AFTERNOON. TEMPS WILL STRUGGLE TO RISE TOO MUCH DUE TO CLOUDS AND ONSHORE FLOW. && .SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM WEDNESDAY/... DESPITE WEAK HIGH PRESSURE TRYING TO MOVE INTO THE REGION TONIGHT...THERE SHOULD BE ENOUGH LOW LEVEL MOISTURE AROUND TO KEEP SKIES CLOUDY ALONG WITH THE CHANCE OF SOME LIGHT RAIN OR DRIZZLE. WILL KEEP POPS AT CHANCE OR SLIGHT CHANCE. IN ADDITION...WILL ALSO INCLUDE PATCHY FOG IN THE FORECAST. FOR WEDNESDAY...FORECAST GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO SHOW SOME SHORTWAVE ENERGY IN THE MID TO UPPER LEVELS. THIS WILL RESULT IN CHANCE POPS FOR SHOWER ACTIVITY. WITH UNCERTAIN TIMING OF EACH SHORTWAVE ON WEDNESDAY...EXPECT A LOW CONFIDENCE FORECAST WITH RESPECT TO TIMING OF ANY SHOWERS. FOR TEMPERATURES...LOWS TUESDAY NIGHT FALL INTO THE 40S...TO NEAR 50. HIGHS ON WEDNESDAY ONLY REACH THE MIDDLE AND UPPER 50S. MAV/MET GUIDANCE IN GOOD AGREEMENT AND WAS USED FOR SHORT TERM TEMPERATURES. && .LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/... MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIRLY GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE H5 PATTERN ACROSS NOAM THROUGH THE WEEKEND. A HIGHLY AMPLIFIED BLOCKY PATTERN STARTS OFF THE PERIOD WITH CUTOFF LOW PRES SYSTEMS OVER THE ERN US AND ERN PAC...WITH RIDGING IN BETWEEN AS WELL AS OVER THE CENTRAL ATLANTIC. THE RIDGE OVER THE MIDDLE OF THE CONUS BREAKS DOWN AS IT TRIES TO MOVE EWD WITH A SPLIT FLOW BECOMING ESTABLISHED BY THE END OF THE WEEK. AN UNSETTLED PATTERN WITH BELOW NORMAL TEMPS WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK AS THE AFOREMENTIONED CUTOFF OVER THE OHIO VALLEY TRACKS TO THE MID ATLANTIC COAST ON FRI AND THEN WEAKENS AS IT CONSOLIDATES WITH A CANADIAN VORTEX OVER THE WEEKEND. AS THE CUTOFF TRACKS TO THE E COAST...WAVES OF LOW PRES WILL RIDE UP THE ERN SEABOARD...AND ALTHOUGH THE MODELS ALL HAVE THE SAME IDEA...THERE ARE MAINLY TIMING...BUT SLIGHT STRENGTH ISSUES. THIS MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO PINPOINT THE EXACT TIMES OF RAIN ACROSS THE AREA AND THUS CHC POPS FOR MOST AREAS THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK. DOESN`T LOOK LIKE THU WILL BE TOO BAD AS ONCE WAVE DEPARTS AND THE NEXT IS DEVELOPING OVER THE CAROLINAS. ALTHOUGH THERE IS SOME WEAK LIFT ACROSS WESTERN AREAS...SO HAVE MAINTAINED LOW CHC POPS BUT IT COULD END UP BEING MOSTLY DRY. THE 03/00Z EC LOOKS MORE LIKE THE 00Z GFS WITH THE STACKED LOW PRES SYSTEM TRACKING UP THE EAST COAST ON FRI AND SHOULD HAVE FAIRLY WIDESPREAD COVERAGE OF RAIN. DUE TO THE DOWNSTREAM BLOCK OVER THE ATLANTIC...THE SYSTEM WILL BE SLOW TO MOVE OUT...ALTHOUGH AN UPSTREAM KICKER DIVING OUT OF CANADA ON SAT SHOULD HELP. SCHC POPS SAT DUE TO COLD POOL ALOFT AND THEN A COLD FRONT SWEEPS THROUGH LATE SAT NIGHT INTO SUN. RIDGING THEN RETURNS FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEKEND AND INTO NEXT WEEK WITH NEAR TO ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES. && .AVIATION /18Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
