area forecast discussion

1224 am edt Mon aug 20 2018

Synopsis
Weak low pressure was located off the new jersey coast this
afternoon. The low will drift out to sea and it should allow
high pressure to nose down from the northeast for Monday. A warm
front approaching from the southwest is forecast to arrive late
on Tuesday followed by a cold front from the west early on
Wednesday. High pressure is expected to influence our weather
during the second half of the work week and for the coming
weekend.

Near term until 6 am this morning
1215 am update: amended pops wx grids the rest of the night.

Radar continues to indicate a persistent region of drizzle
and or light rain generally near south of the i-76 corridor in
southern new jersey and adjacent portions of pa, md, and de,
with spotty showers just offshore southern nj and the delaware
beaches. Hi-res simulations are certainly suggesting the
persistence of the showers near off the coast the rest of the
night, and model soundings suggest the drizzle light rain may
continue (though gradually being shunted southward with time as
subtly drier air filters in from the northeast).

With the above in mind, raised pops for DELMARVA to at least
mentionable the rest of the night, while slowing the decreasing
pop trend in southern new jersey from the previous forecast.

Tweaked temp dew point wind grids as well based on current
observations, though these edits were quite minor overall.

Previous discussion...

showers continue to decrease in areal coverage. The rains have
been persistent across delaware chester counties today with
some areas getting 2 to 3 inches of rain over the course of the
day. Only a few reports of flooding with the rates of rainfall
being only moderate for the most part. The mid upper low
continues across the region tonight with only slow improvement
expected as the system weakens moves away from the region.

With the easterly flow continuing through the overnight, we
should remain pretty overcast. Some drizzle and light rain is
expected but not expecting much in the way of fog overnight as
winds are not anticipated to become completely calm overnight.

Temperatures will slowly fall into the 50s across the north and
remain in the mid 60s across the southern eastern areas.

Short term 6 am this morning through 6 pm today
The boundary will remain south of our area on Monday with
several shortwaves crossing through our area during the day.

Even with the waves moving through, Monday looks to remain
mostly dry across much of our area as drier air starts to push
down from the north. Some light rain or drizzle may develop,
especially along the coast as a weak area of low pressure moves
along the boundary and one of the shortwaves move through,
mainly towards the afternoon or early evening.

Another mostly cloudy day across the region as the easterly
flow continues. Not quite as cool as today but still below
normal with highs reaching into the upper 70s to lower 80s
across the forecast area. With the dry air pushing into the
region, it will be nice to see the dewpoints stay in the lower
to mid 60s through the day.

Long term tonight through Sunday
A short wave mid level trough is forecast to be located over
the mississippi river valley on Monday evening with another
short wave diving down from the canadian prairies. Both features
will be rotating around a long wave trough located over central
canada. The short waves are expected to help deepen the long
wave which is expected to reach the great lakes on Wednesday and
the northeastern states on Thursday. The long wave trough is
anticipated to lift northeastward on Friday allowing a ridge
over the western north atlantic to gain influence over our
region for much of the coming weekend.

We are expecting an onshore flow on Monday night and Tuesday as
high pressure pulls away to our northeast and as a warm front
approaches from the southwest. We are forecasting an increase in
cloud cover during that period along with an increasing
potential for showers. Afternoon thunderstorms are possible, as
well.

Showers and scattered thunderstorms are expected for Tuesday
night as we get into the warm sector and as a cold front nears
our region from the west. Locally heavy downpours are possible.

We are anticipating lingering showers on Wednesday, especially
in the morning. Surface high pressure is then forecast to move
from the center of the country on Wednesday to the middle
atlantic and northeastern states on Friday. Dry weather is
expected. As the high moves farther off the coast over the
weekend, we will introduce a slight chance of showers and
thunderstorms in the return flow.

High temperatures are expected to favor the lower and middle
80s in our region from Tuesday through Sunday. Humidity levels
will drop noticeably after the cold front passes early on
Wednesday.

Overnight lows are forecast to be mainly in the 60s and lower
70s on Monday night and Tuesday night, and generally in the
upper 50s and lower 60s from Wednesday night through Friday
night before they creep upward over the weekend.

Aviation 04z Monday through Friday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Rest of tonight... GeneralVFR expected to predominate north of
phl and MVFR south east of phl as northeast winds continue
around 10 kts. Some drizzle light rain is expected in the
phl ilg acy miv corridor for the next few hours. CIGS vsbys will
likely be somewhat variable at the terminals, especially between
phl and acy as the area of drizzle light rain shifts southward
slowly. Low confidence.

Monday... GeneralVFR conditions expected, though lingering MVFR
cigs may exist in the morning, especially at miv acy. Winds
east northeast 5 to 15 kts. Moderate confidence.

Outlook...

Monday night and Tuesday... Mainly MVFR ceilings are expected.

Some ifr ceilings are possible during the late night and early
morning hours. An increasing potential for showers. A chance of
afternoon thunderstorms. East to southeast wind 10 knots or
less.

Tuesday night... Showers and scattered thunderstorms. Conditions
mainly MVFR and ifr. South to southwest wind 10 knots or less.

Wednesday... Lingering showers in the morning, then conditions
improving toVFR. West wind around 10 knots.

Wednesday night and Thursday... MainlyVFR. Local late night and
early morning visibility restrictions are possible. Northwest
wind less than 10 knots.

Thursday night and Friday... MainlyVFR. Local late night and
early morning visibility restrictions are possible. Wind less
than 10 knots veering gradually from north to southeast.

Marine
The small craft advisory from earlier was expanded to cover the
rest of the nj de coastal waters. The increasing NE flow created
a decent jump in seas across 44009 earlier this evening. Conditions
shouldn't change much overnight. Sub-small craft advisory conditions
are expected to continue for the delaware bay tonight.

Scattered showers this evening will taper off to patchy drizzle
and some light rain overnight.

Outlook...

Monday night through Friday... No marine headlines are
anticipated.

Rip currents...

for Monday, we are forecasting a moderate risk for the
formation of dangerous rip currents for the new jersey coast.

The risk is expected to be low for the delaware beaches as the
winds and waves should be lower across the southern portions of
the area.

Phi watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Nj... None.

De... None.

Md... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory until 4 pm edt this afternoon for
anz450>455.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
