What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
A low pressure system moves across ontario and quebec tonight and
Tuesday. An associated strong cold front will cross our area Tuesday
afternoon and Tuesday night. High pressure from the great lakes will
follow for Wednesday and remain over our area into Friday night. A
series of disturbances will then be across the mid-atlantic for the
upcoming weekend.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
The mostly isolated convection has dissipated, as of 01z. The main
forcing was terrain and a sea breeze which was enhanced inland by
convective outflow. The boundary was well defined on radar however
it has dissipated now since is has moved well inland. As a result,
scaled the pops back accordingly for the remainder of this evening.

As we go through the overnight though, an amplifying upper-level
trough moves across the great lakes and the leading edge of the
height falls arrive into our northern and western areas. It appears
though the bulk of the forcing is farther to the west closer to the
cold front. Therefore some uncertainty exists on how much shower or
thunderstorm activity redevelops or arrives across mainly our
western zones late tonight. Some guidance suggest some convection
occurs mostly in portions of eastern pennsylvania to northern new
jersey late tonight while other guidance is dry. For now, carried
slight chance pops for the western areas (low chance pops for the
poconos) late tonight. The southerly flow at the surface diminishes
tonight and therefore patchy fog is possible given lots of low-level
moisture. We are more in the warm sector given a cold front to our
west (plus some more mid to high level clouds late), and therefore
any fog may be rather light limited and thus did not add to the
forecast at this time.

It will be a warm and rather muggy night ahead of a cold front (dew
points mostly in the 70s). The hourly temperature, dew point and
wind grids were adjusted based on the latest observations, then the
lamp guidance was also blended in to help assist. The cloud cover
has mostly dissipated outside of some cirrus. Some increase in the
clouds is anticipated through the night though especially across the
western areas as cloud debris arrives.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through 6 pm Tuesday
The day may start with a few showers or thunderstorms across the
western areas, however an active afternoon is expected as an
amplifying upper-level trough approaches from the west and a surface
cold front arrives. The expectation of more clouds and eventually
widespread convection will result in a cooler day but still rather
humid. Did slow down the eastward increase in pops though through
about early afternoon.

The SPC maintained the i-95 corridor on westward in a marginal risk
for severe thunderstorms for Tuesday afternoon. The guidance has
pwats of 2-2.25 inches, therefore quite a bit of moisture is
available. Given enough instability and where updrafts are able to
be more robust, frequent cloud to cloud lightning is a good
possibility. The low and mid level flow shear however ahead of the
cold front is somewhat limited, with this greatest to our north.

There should be some multicells though ahead of the front, and if
these can organize enough and generate a cold pool then local strong
surface wind gusts can occur. There is the potential for at least
some isolated severe thunderstorms, with locally damaging winds
(water loaded downdrafts) the main threat. The mid level flow is
more perpendicular to the cold front, therefore convection should be
on the move. Given the high pwats though, downpours could result in
localized flooding.

Long term Tuesday night through Monday
Tuesday night... The strong cold front will be moving offshore and
the showers and thunderstorms associated with it will be ending
across the region. Cooler and drier air will arrive across the nw
areas, but it may take until Wednesday to finally arrive across
delmarva and SRN nj. Overnight lows will drop into the upper 50s low
60s N W and mid upper 60s S e. Winds will become NW overnight at 5
to 10 mph.

Wednesday thru Friday... High pressure will be across the great
lakes Wednesday and it will build across the middle atlantic
Thursday before moving offshore Friday. The high will bring fair
weather along with seasonable temperatures. Highs will be in the
low mid 80s in most areas, but the overnight lows will be cool for
july with 50s across the north west and low mid 60s for DELMARVA and
srn nj. These lows will be around 5 degrees below normal.

Next weekend Monday... Unsettled with an unusually strong upper
trough moving towards the region. A deep south to southwest flow
aloft will become established and abundant moisture from the
south will arrive across the region. Showers and thunderstorms
will probably be around Sat thru mon, so we have kept the high
chance pops for the weekend. The latest nmb has some likely pops
for Sunday, so we went along an put those in the grids attm.

Locally heavy rains are possible, but we'll get more details
later this week before getting any more specific.

Aviation 02z Tuesday through Saturday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Rest of tonight...VFR overall. An isolated shower or thunderstorm
cannot be ruled out mainly west of phl. Some MVFR visibilities due
to light fog is possible at some terminals overnight, however this
is of lower confidence. South to southwest winds less than 10 knots,
or even becoming locally light and variable to calm.

Tuesday... Local MVFR visibilities early due to light fog, otherwise
vfr for awhile. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop
from west to east and become more widespread mainly in the afternoon
ahead of a cold front. There will be ceiling and especially
visibility restrictions (MVFR ifr) with the showers and
thunderstorms, and locally brief gusty winds may accompany some
stronger thunderstorms. South to southwest winds increasing to
around 10 knots, becoming west-northwest late in the afternoon at
rdg and abe and closer to the early evening farther east.

Outlook...

Tuesday night... Showers and thunderstorms ending from west to
east, withVFR returning. Patchy fog possible across delmarva
and southern new jersey.

Wednesday through Friday...VFR expected.

Friday night and Saturday... MostlyVFR. A few showers and
thunderstorms possible.

Marine
Tonight... Sub SCA conditions expected. Mainly SW winds 15 to 20 kt.

Seas 3 to 4 ft.

Tuesday... No headlines south of little egg inlet with SW gusts up to
20 kt and seas up to 4 feet. North of little egg, gusts up to 25 kt
and seas up to 5 feet are expected. A SCA has been issued north
of little egg between 12z Tue through 04z Wednesday.

Outlook...

Tuesday night... SCA diminishing and showers tstms ending from W to
e.

Wednesday thru Friday... Sub-sca with fair weather.

Friday night thru Saturday... Scattered showers and tstms.

Sca psbl.

Rip currents...

for Tuesday, opted to go with another moderate risk of rip
currents for both the new jersey and delaware beaches. This is
due to a lingering underlying southeasterly long period swell
(although it looks weaker than previous days), the seas building
some and a 10-25 mph south-southwest wind along the coast again
especially late morning through the afternoon.

Phi watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Nj... None.

De... None.

Md... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory from 8 am Tuesday to midnight edt Tuesday
night for anz450-451.
