Synopsis
High pressure remains in control of the weather for much of the
rest of the week into the weekend. A dry frontal boundary may
move into the area Thursday into Friday. A couple of frontal
boundaries are forecast to affect the area early next week,
bringing a return of unsettled weather.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
The frost advisory was allowed to expire at 9 am for the nj pine
barrens as temperatures have risen from the mid 30s at 7 am to
the lower 50s just two hours later.

Otherwise, a quiet weather day is in store with high centered
over the mid-atlantic region today. Sunny skies and a light w-sw
wind are in store for the area.

The combination of subsidence underneath the ridge and weak waa
(from w-sw flow on the northern periphery of the high) will
yield a noticeably warmer day than yesterday and Monday. The
latest 12z RAOB soundings from iad okx reveal a 5-10 c increase
in low- level temps over the past 24 hours. High temperatures
for today were tweaked a bit for the 930 am update after
blending the previous forecast with the latest hi-res guidance
and then applying a few minor manual adjustments based on bias
correct from yesterday's forecast.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Thursday
Made adjustments to the sky cover forecast for tonight to take
into account the probability of increasing high clouds late
tonight. An upper shortwave trough approaching from the west
will be responsible for bringing in these clouds. Do not
anticipate these clouds to have a significant impact on
radiational cooling given the high base of the cirrus.

Clear tonight with diminishing winds. Dewpoints will slowly
begin to creep up with light S to SW flow. Patchy ground fog is
possible across the delmarva, pine barrens of nj, and parts of
northern nj. Radiational cooling will allow for lows in the
upper 30s to around 40 in the pine barrens, and in the mid 40s
most elsewhere. The philly metro area will drop into the low
50s.

Long term Thursday through Tuesday
Quiet weather is expected for the remainder of this week into
the weekend. High pressure will be in control of the weather
through the end of the week before moving offshore Sunday. A
frontal boundary may move across the area on Thursday, although
it is expected to be dry and only have an effect on the wind
direction and may slightly increase winds.

Ridging aloft builds across the area late this week into the
weekend, which will help keep temperatures several degrees above
normal. As the surface high and ridge aloft moves offshore
Sunday, return flow and southwest flow aloft develops. This will
help increase clouds, but no precipitation is expected through
Sunday.

As we go into early next week, a couple of frontal boundaries
are forecast to move across the east coast. This is expected to
lead to an increase in rainfall activity Monday into Tuesday,
then usher in cooler weather behind the fronts.

Aviation 14z Wednesday through Sunday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Vfr through tonight. A light wind between 4-8 kt today will vary
between W and SW with the latter direction favored for this
afternoon. Winds diminish to 5 kt or less tonight.

Patchy ground fog is possible with brief sub-vfr vsby at kmiv
and kacy late tonight through Thursday morning.

Outlook...

Thursday-Sunday...VFR conditions expected. Winds may gust
around 15 knots out of the southwest Thursday and out of the
northwest Friday.

Marine
High pressure dominates area waters. SW winds increase to 10-15
kt this afternoon, then diminish to 5-10 kt tonight. Seas on the
ocean will be 2-3 feet.

Outlook...

Thursday-Sunday... Conditions expected to remain below small
craft advisory levels through the period.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
