000 FXUS61 KOKX 210007 AFDOKX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 807 PM EDT Sun May 20 2018 .SYNOPSIS... High pressure builds across the region tonight and into Monday. A weak frontal system affects the area from late Monday night into Wednesday. High pressure returns Thursday and remains through Saturday. The next weather system will move across the region on Sunday. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM MONDAY MORNING/... Scattered showers have pushed offshore. Forecast remains on track with just minor updates to temperatures and dewpoints to reflect current observations. Otherwise, clearing conditions expected tonight as high pressure builds across the region. Temperatures tonight will be in the low to mid 50s. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/... Sunny conditions Monday as high pressure builds across the region with a weak frontal system impacting the area late Monday night. This will result in some precipitation across the region with light QPF values. Highs on Monday will generally be in the mid to upper 70s, except lower 70s across south coasts with afternoon seabreeze development. Temperatures Monday night will be in the mid to upper 50s. && .LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/... A weak frontal system will impacting the area Tuesday through early Wednesday. There are some small timing differences with the global models with both the onset of warm advection rain and the possibility of scattered convection lingering into Wednesday as the airmass change behind a cold front is subtle. This does not look to be a significant rainfall event. Additionally, while the westerlies and an upper trough will remain across the area through midweek, the instability at this time looks to be only marginal. High pressure builds across the area on Thursday and remains through Saturday, resulting in dry weather with above normal temperatures. A frontal system is then forecast to impact the region Saturday night into Sunday. Highs on Sunday will be in the low to mid 70s. && .AVIATION /00Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
