Synopsis for the Long Island Waters and New York Harbor... An area of low pressure slowly tracks from the Great Lakes today to the Canadian Maritime Provinces by Wednesday evening as it strengthens. Its associated warm front lifts into the area this morning, then stalls out, followed by the cold front associated with the low crossing the area tonight. As the low over the Canadian Maritimes tracks farther to the northeast, high pressure builds towards the area into Thursday night and then remains anchored over southeastern Canada through the first part of the weekend.

“The effects of Sequestration will be felt in most US ports through the elimination of overtime by CBP which may cause delays in the docking/boarding of vessels.  Restrictions differ from port to port. Individual Moran offices will provide updates via Daily emails along with updating Masters via pre arrival messages.  Should you have any questions do not hesitate to contact the local Moran office”
