Synopsis
In the wake of the cold front which arrived last night, colder
air will filter into the region. Another cold front is expected
Wednesday. High pressure is expected to build across our region
from the west on Thursday and Friday, followed by a strong cold
front late Saturday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Surface high pressure centered in the southern great plains
will continue to nose up the ohio river valley and into our
region today. As a result, we are anticipating cool dry weather
conditions. High temperatures should range from around 50 in the
elevated terrain of the poconos to near 60 on the coastal plain
of the upper DELMARVA and southern new jersey. The wind is
forecast to back from the northwest to the southwest around 10
mph.

An upper level jet is expected to extend from the southern
great lakes to southern new england. The jet should maintain a
fair amount of cirrus overhead through the day.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Wednesday
Fair weather is expected to continue for most areas with high
pressure continuing to extend its influence over the area. A
weak upper air feature will move along the fast upper flow and
bring some extra cloudiness and perhaps a light sprinkle to srn
de and parts of NE md. Lows tonight will be in the upper 30s to
low 40s across most of the northern and western areas and in the
upper 40s across DELMARVA and S E nj. Winds will be light.

Long term Wednesday through Monday
Summary: the main periods of interest with the long term are
with the two cold fronts. The first one is expected to arrive
tomorrow, while the second should arrive late Saturday. Showers,
gusty winds, and freeze frost in some places will be possible
with behind each of these fronts.

Details:
Wednesday... Cold front is expected to arrive in the afternoon
and evening. There will be little chance for moisture advection
ahead of the front, so stayed close to the previous forecast
with just a slight chance of showers across the poconos NW nj,
but otherwise a dry forecast. There is a chance for a freeze in
the southern poconos, and frost in the lehigh valley, berks
county, and NW nj Wednesday night behind the front.

Thursday and Friday... The main influence through this period
will be a surface high slowly building east in combination with
a mid and upper level ridge propagating east as well. The
combination of these two factors will lead to dry weather, and a
warming trend. The warming trend will be especially noticeable
Friday into early Saturday as the surface high builds east of
our region, leading to low level southwesterly flow. Before the
warming trend gets started, we could see another round of frost
Thursday night for location northwest of the i-95 corridor.

Saturday... Cold front should arrive through the second half of
the day. Unlike with the Wednesday front, there should be plenty
of moisture advection ahead of this front, thanks in large part
to the southwesterly flow ahead of the front. For now have kept
the weather type as showers, but depending on the arrival time
of the front, especially if it arrives before sunset, we could
see some thunderstorms across the region.

Sunday through Tuesday... Dry and cool conditions are expected
through this period. Frost or even a hard freeze is possible
especially Sunday night into Monday morning.

Aviation 16z Tuesday through Saturday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Today... We expectVFR conditions to continue today as a high
pressure ridge begins to move across the area. Winds will be
mostly NW at 5 to 10 knots with a few gusts 15 to 20 knots
possible.

Tonight... MoreVFR expected with mostly clear skies. Winds will
be light from the W or nw.

Outlook...

Wednesday and Wednesday night... MostlyVFR. Winds will shift to
the northwest late in the day and may gust near or above 25 kt
at times.

Thursday through Friday...VFR conditions expected. Light wind
becoming southwesterly on Friday around 10 kt.

Saturday... MostlyVFR though temporary visibility and ceiling
restrictions are possible with showers. Winds starting
southwesterly, but an abrupt shift to northwesterly is expected
late in the day Saturday.

Marine
We should see several hours lull in the wind until very late
tonight, when winds and seas increase once again above sca
thresholds.

Outlook...

Wednesday and Wednesday night... West to northwesterly gale
force wind gusts are likely primarily on the atlantic coastal
waters. SCA conditions, possibly gale conditions, are likely on
the delaware bay.

Thursday... Northwesterly wind gusts of 25 to 30 kt are
expected.

Thursday night and Friday... No marine headlines are
anticipated.

Friday night and Saturday... Southwesterly wind gusts around 25
kt are possible with an abrupt shift to northwesterly late in
the day Saturday with gusts up to 30 kt possible.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
