Synopsis
High pressure will remain to our southwest Wednesday and Thursday.

The high will remain there into Friday as well, but by Friday a mid-
level disturbance will also pass just north of the region. An upper
level trough and surface frontal system will slowly approach from
the north over the weekend, with a cold front likely moving through
on Sunday. High pressure is expected to build back in from the
northwest early next week.

Near term until 6 am Wednesday morning
The cold front that crossed the area earlier is offshore now. A
few sprinkles and even a light shower passed across sussex
county, nj, but has since dissipated. A drier airmass will
continue to move into the region with dew points dropping back
into the low mid 60s. Not a whole lot of advective cooling
behind this front, but the drier air and light winds will
provide a refreshing break. Lows will be in the 60s for the most
part across the area. Winds will decrease back to around 5
knots overnight.

Short term 6 am Wednesday morning through 6 pm Wednesday
Fair weather will continue Wednesday across our region. Weak high
pressure will build south to north while upper heights also
build overhead. Overall a dry day is expected. Some of the
models are depicting some showers tstms across NW pa and ny that
may track SE towards the southern poconos during the late
afternoon. We'll hold of on assigning any pops for this attm
with confid on that occurring rather low attm.

Long term Wednesday night through Tuesday
Overview...

a typical summertime pattern takes hold over the CONUS as we close
out the month of june. An upper level flow that is initially fairly
zonal will become more amplified as a trough digging into the west
helps force the building of a downstream ridge over the central us.

This ridge will initially extend to the east coast on its eastern
flank, with high pressure centered south of the mid-atlantic. This
will lead to hot weather and a potential heatwave for the end of the
work week. Heading into the weekend, changes occur as a trough
dropping south out of canada will act to erode the eastern reaches
of the ridge. This will bring some unsettled conditions for the
weekend. By early next week, the trough pulls away, and high
pressure should build in from the northwest. This should keep Monday
and most of Tuesday dry with a frontal system potentially
approaching beyond then.

Dailies...

Wednesday night-Thursday night... Dry conditions and lows generally
a little above average Wednesday night. High pressure centered just
to our southwest and rising mid-level heights will yield a warm day
Thursday, with highs in the upper 80s and low 90s. 25.12z nam
indicated thunderstorm development over southeast pa and DELMARVA in
the afternoon, but other guidance is far less bullish. Given the
synoptic pattern just described, believe the NAM is in error and
expecting dry conditions to prevail. A dry night as well with
overnight lows also a little on the warm side of average, very
similar to the prior night.

Friday-Friday night... A shortwave will pass to our north Friday
afternoon into Friday night. Nothing too impressive, and in fact it
looks to be deamplifying and shearing out as it approaches, not a
surprise considering the ridge will be continuing to build Friday
with high pressure remaining to our south. Friday looks to be the
warmest day of the week, with many locations likely to crack 90 and
some mid 90s possible in the urban i95 corridor. Dew points look to
stay mainly in the mid 60s, so a bit sticky but not oppressively
humid. The very warm and marginally humid air combined with modest
lift from the shortwave will lead to the possibility of showers and
thunderstorms developing late in the day and overnight. Currently
does not look like anything too well organized, but scattered
showers and storms will be possible for the late afternoon, evening,
and overnight especially in the northwestern half of the area.

Saturday-Sunday... As mentioned, a trough will be dropping down from
out of quebec and into new england over the weekend. Weak low
pressure and an attendant cold front will exist at the surface, and
this system will begin to approach the area, moving almost due
south. On Saturday, with temperatures remaining warm ahead of the
front and dew points climbing to near 70 in developing southwest
flow, it appears a pre-frontal trough could serve as a focus for
scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. By
Sunday, the actual cold front approaches, and in fact that may pass
through as early as Sunday morning. If the timing of the front is
slower and we heat up again on Sunday, we would see another round of
showers and thunderstorms. Cannot rule out the potential for some
stronger storms and locally heavy rain over the weekend, though the
signals for either aren't overly strong. A good deal of fine tuning
will be needed here, as the biggest uncertainty right now relates to
the timing of the frontal system. Models struggling a bit with an
anticyclonic wave break of the ridge over the central us and how it
will impact the canadian trough to its east, which will have impacts
on the surface low moving offshore and intensifying. Not expecting a
weekend washout, but scattered showers and storms will be possible
both days at least in parts of the area.

Monday-Tuesday... The trough to our northeast will slide away early
next week, and weak high pressure looks to build in. Temperatures
should be seasonably warm Monday as the trough and associated cold
pool pull away, and am confident in dry conditions with the high
building in. Fairly wide spread in guidance by Tuesday, though warm
and dry conditions will probably continue for at least most of the
day. However, it appears we will have a frontal system approaching
by later Tuesday or Wednesday as the ridge to the west will have
flattened out from the wave breaking evolution over the weekend,
opening the door for that system to track a little closer to us.

Aviation 00z Wednesday through Sunday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg, kilg,
kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Tonight...VFR conditions expected with only some high level
cloudiness expected. West to northwest winds will decrease to less
than 5 knots in most areas.

Wednesday...VFR expected with mostly sunny skies during the morning
and some daytime CU during the afternoon. Winds will be mostly NW to
w at 5 to 10 knots. There may be a sea breeze affecting kacy during
the afternoon.

Outlook...

Wednesday night-Thursday night... VFR. Winds very light
but mainly from the west.

Friday-Friday night... MainlyVFR, but a shower or thunderstorm is
possible from late afternoon through the overnight especially
north of phl.

Saturday-Sunday... VFR overall, however, showers and thunderstorms
are possible both days. West-southwest winds of 5 to 10 kt Saturday
becoming northwest Sunday with gusts to 20 kt possible.

Marine
A cold front has crossed the waters as of late afternoon. Winds will
remain W to NW overnight at 5 to 10 knots. Fair weather is expected.

Wednesday, a continuation of fair weather with northwest winds
around 10 knots during the morning and then light onshore winds for
the afternoon.

Outlook...

Wednesday night-Friday... Sub-sca conditions with light
winds and seas 1 to 2 ft.

Friday night-Sunday... Sub-sca conditions expected to continue with
seas 2 to 3 ft. A risk of scattered showers and thunderstorms exists
for much of this period. Southwest winds of 10 to 15 kt Saturday.

Northwesterly winds develop Sunday with gusts to 20 kt possible.

Rip currents...

a low risk of rip current development will continue into Wednesday
as winds turn very light and waves in the surf zone diminish to
only around one foot.

Phi watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Nj... None.

De... None.

Md... None.

Marine... None.
