Synopsis
High pressure across the great lakes region will build across the
middle atlantic later today and remain across the region through
Saturday. Low pressure will move north of the area Sunday and Monday
causing a front to move across the region. More high pressure will
return for later Monday and into Tuesday. A disturbance will arrive
for the middle of next week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
No significant changes for the 930 am update. Much quieter day
in store for the area as surface high pressure builds NW of the
area over the great lakes while at mid lvls heights rise as the
se ridge tries to build northward in the wake of the earlier
shortwave.

Given good mixing and modest pressure rises, will likely see breezy
northwest winds through most of the daytime hours (gusts generally
in the 20-30 mph range). There will be a considerably drier airmass
in place with cloud cover limited to patchy cirrus and some
stratocumulus (most notable over northern portions of the area).

Given a well-mixed atmosphere, a good amount of sun, and offshore
flow highs will generally run in the mid 70s to low 80s (probably a
bit cooler in the far north where there may be more cloud
cover).

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Saturday
The high will move overhead this evening and then offshore
overnight, which will cause the northwesterly winds to decrease in
speed and veer to a more easterly direction. Models indicate a weak
shortwave diving around the eastern side of the ridge overnight in
the vicinity of delmarva, but am not expecting anything other than
maybe an increase in mid-clouds from this feature. Can't rule
out some stratus by the coast given onshore winds and some
cooling moistening of the low levels, but the signal is not too
strong for this outside of the nam. Other than that overnight
mins should cool to near climo; given light onshore flow and a
drier airmass.

Long term Saturday through Thursday
The overall synoptic setup will continue with an upper high
pressure across the south and a rather deep trough over the
western part of the country. A low across canada will guide low
pressure systems and fronts across the great lakes and middle
atlantic this weekend and into the middle of next week. This
means showery conditions with some tstms possible. The most
favored times for the rains are Sat night thru Sun night and
again Wed Thu next week. Since the pattern is more showery, some
locally heavy rains are possible, but the rains will be scattered
and intermittent.

Temperatures will be near normal Saturday, but then turn much
more summer-like Sunday when mercury readings will approach 90
in many areas, save the southern poconos and the shore. The above
normal readings will carry into next week, although highs Mon tue
will be more like low mid 80s. Highs will then go back into the
low 90s Wed and perhaps again thu. Humidity levels will be
somewhat uncomfortable Sunday and then again towards the
middle of next week.

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

Friday...VFR conditions are expected at all terminals. NW winds
sustained around 15 kts with gusts up to around 25 knots are
expected through mid-afternoon.

Friday night... VFR conditions are expected with winds decreasing in
speed to around 5-10 kts, and veering from northerly to
easterly and then eventually southeasterly by Saturday morning.

Outlook...

sat... MostlyVFR.

Sat night thru Sun night...VFR much of the time, but a few
showers and tstms with lower conditions possible.

Mon thru tue... MostlyVFR.

Marine
Winds and seas are likely to remain below small craft advisory
conditions today and tonight. There is a chance for gusts to 25
kt, mostly for near shore locations along the northern new
jersey shore later this afternoon. We will continue to monitor,
but for now, the chance appears to be too low to issue an sca.

Outlook...

winds and seas will likely remain below SCA conditions for the
weekend and into early next week. Mostly fair weather is
expected, but a few tstms will be across the waters Sat night
and again Sunday night. Locally higher winds and seas are
possible with any tstm.

Rip current...

there is a moderate risk of rip currents along the new jersey
shore and delaware beaches through this evening.

Phi watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Nj... None.

De... None.

Md... None.

Marine... None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
