AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY  
117 PM EDT WED APR 14 2021  
   
SYNOPSIS
 
 
HIGH PRESSURE WILL MOVE OFFSHORE TODAY. LOW PRESSURE WILL  
APPROACH FROM THE WEST LATE TODAY INTO TONIGHT, AND IMPACT THE  
AREA THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. ANOTHER LOW COULD IMPACT THE AREA  
EARLY NEXT WEEK.  
 

 
   
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
 
 
UPDATED AGAIN FOR CURRENT CONDITIONS. ADDED A FEW SPRINKLES FOR  
THE REST OF THE MORNING ACROSS ERN NEW LONDON CT.  
 
RIDGE AXIS BUILDS ACROSS THE CWA TODAY, THEN AS HEIGHTS FALL  
THIS AFTN, CHANCES FOR SHWRS TO DEVELOP. MOISTURE TRANSPORT  
VECTORS INDICATE A WEAK FLOW OF MOISTURE INTO THE AREA THRU  
TNGT. THE H5 LOW GETS TO ABOUT LAKE HURON BY 12Z THU, SO FORCING  
IS NOT STRONG THRU TNGT. ANY RAINFALL THEREFORE IS EXPECTED TO  
BE MAINLY LIGHT TODAY AND TNGT. TEMPS ARE PROGGED TO BE MILD  
TODAY, WITH THE NBM NOW SUGGESTING MANY AREAS AWAY FROM THE  
COASTS HITTING 70. THIS IS WARMER THAN THE MET AND MAV, BUT WAS  
USED IN THE FCST BASED ON WLY COMPONENT LLVL FLOW AND ADDING A  
FEW DEGREES TO YESTERDAY'S HIGHS.  
 

 
   
SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/
 
 
IN RESPONSE TO THE MASSIVE H5 LOW APPROACHING FROM THE W, LOW  
PRES DEVELOPS S OF LONG ISLAND ON THU. THE LOW IS BROAD AND  
WEAK THU, BUT WINDS UP A BIT MORE THU NGT. THE MODELS ARE IN  
PRETTY GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE LOW TRACK THU NGT, TAKING IT THRU  
THE CAPE AND ISLANDS BY 12Z FRI. WITH THE H8 LOW TRACKING ACROSS  
LONG ISLAND, THE SFC LOW SHOULD STAY INSIDE THE 40N/70W  
BENCHMARK. THIS WOULD TEND TO DRYSLOT MOST OF THE AREA BY LATE  
THU NGT. IT WOULD ALSO KEEP SNOW ACCUMS N AS WELL. FOLLOWED WPC  
FOR QPF FOR THE EVENT, WHICH IS STILL AROUND AN INCH AND A  
HALF. SOME -RASN WAS ADDED FOR INTERIOR PORTIONS OF CT, AS WELL  
AS PARTS OF THE LOWER HUDSON VALLEY FOR THU NGT. THE NBM WAS  
USED FOR TEMPS THU, BUT THE FCST IS WEIGHTED HEAVILY TOWARDS THE  
NAM 2M DATA FOR THU NGT.  
 

 
   
LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/
 
 
LINGERING LIGHT RAIN IS POSSIBLE AS THE LOW HEADS NORTHEAST ON  
FRIDAY. NORTHERLY FLOW WILL KEEP HIGH TEMPERATURES WELL BELOW  
SEASONABLE, IN THE MID 40S TO LOW 50S.  
 
BRIEF RIDGING ALOFT SHOULD KEEP THE AREA MOSTLY DRY FOR THE WEEKEND  
BEFORE A SHORTWAVE BRINGS A CHANCE OF SOME LIGHT RAIN ON MONDAY.  
 
SOME MODEL DISAGREEMENT REMAINS WITH A SYSTEM FOR EARLY NEXT WEEK.  
THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR ANOTHER COASTAL SYSTEM TO BRING RAIN AND  
GUSTY WINDS TO OUR AREA.
