A BROAD UPPER TROUGH WILL REMAIN ACROSS THE NORTHEAST FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS AND WILL BE REINFORCED FROM TIME TO TIME AS SHORTWAVES MOVE AROUND A VORTEX OVER ONTARIO AND QUEBEC. HEIGHTS RISE SLIGHTLY ALOFT TODAY AS WE WILL BE BETWEEN SHORTWAVE ACTIVITY. AT THE SFC...WEAK HIGH PRES WILL PREVAIL WITH LIGHT W/NW FLOW BECOMING SOUTH/SOUTHWEST OVER THE AREA TODAY. SEABREEZES ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP DURING THE LATE MORNING/EARLY AFTN AT THE COAST. HIGHS WILL BE SIMILAR TO YESTERDAY...GENERALLY MID TO UPPER 80S AND AROUND 90 IN THE METRO UNDER SUNNY SKIES.

H5 FLOW AMPLIFIES ACROSS NOAM TONIGHT AND MON IN RESPONSE TO CUTOFF LOW MOVING ONSHORE IN WESTERN CANADA AND THE H5 CANADIAN VORTEX DRIFTING SWD. WARM AND MUGGY TONIGHT WITH WEAK WAA IN PLACE. INCREASING DEWPOINTS AND CLEAR SKIES COULD RESULT IN PATCHY RADIATION FOG. NAM IS ALSO INDICATING STRATUS...AND THERE MAY BE SOME PATCHES FLOATING AROUND LATE...BUT CLIMATOLOGY IS AGAINST IT BEING WIDESPREAD. SO THINKING MORE FOG THAN STRATUS WOULD OCCUR. MODEL GUIDANCE HAS SLOWED UP A BIT WITH THE MID-LEVEL ENERGY APPROACHING FOR MON AFT/EVE...AND IT NOW APPEARS THAT MOST OF THE AREA WON`T SEE ANY SHRA/TSTMS UNTIL MON EVE/NIGHT. HAVE ADJUSTED POPS AS SUCH BUT KEPT THEM AT CHC WITH A WEAKENING TREND NOTED OVERNIGHT. PORTIONS OF THE LOWER HUDSON VALLEY AND NE NJ COULD SEE STRONG TO SEVERE TSTMS LATE MON AFTN INTO THE EARLY EVE WITH MODERATE INSTABILITY IN PLACE AND 30-40 KTS BULK SHEAR MOVING INTO THE REGION. COVERAGE OF THE STRONGER STORMS WILL ULTIMATELY DEPEND ON THE TIMING. IF THINGS SPEED UP AGAIN...THE STORMS WOULD MAKE IT HERE EARLIER AND IMPACT MORE OF THE AREA. OTHERWISE...HOT AND HUMID FOR MONDAY WITH TEMPS AGAIN IN THE MID TO UPPER 80S MOST LOCATIONS...LOWER 90S NYC/NE NJ. FRONT STALLS OVER THE AREA...SOMEWHERE INVOF NYC/WESTERN CT...MON NIGHT AND LINGERS THERE THROUGH TUE. HIGHS ON TUE ARE TRICKY AS A RESULT. HIGHEST TEMPS AND HUMIDITY WILL BE E OF THE FRONT WITH THE THREAT FOR ADDITIONAL SHRA/TSTM DEVELOPMENT AS WELL. HIGHER CHANCES FOR THIS E OF NYC SO HAVE INCREASE POPS TO CHC ON LI AND CT. MODERATE INSTABILITY AND SHEAR WILL EXIST AGAIN...LEADING TO THE POTENTIAL FOR ADDITIONAL STRONG TO SEVERE TSTMS TUE AFTN/EVE. FRONT FINALLY PUSHES E TUE NIGHT WITH DRIER AND SEASONABLE WEATHER RETURNING.
