Synopsis
High pressure located in wisconsin early this morning will
build to the east. The center of the high is forecast to pass
off the coast on Wednesday afternoon. A cold front from the
northwest is expected to approach our region on Thursday night
before retreating to the north on Friday. A more substantial
cold front is anticipated to arrive on Sunday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
An upper-level trough axis will cross our region later today.

As some ridging builds northeastward from the ohio valley into
the eastern great lakes, an extensive area of surface high
pressure will build eastward from the great lakes region.

Meanwhile, low pressure will be well to our southeast and will
continue to move out to sea. The pressure gradient between this
low and incoming high pressure will result in a breezy north to
northeast wind for awhile today. The highest winds are expected
to be closer to the coast (and the higher elevations of the
poconos).

The airmass associated with the incoming surface high is very
dry, with dew points dropping into the teens and single numbers
from north to south. This is already occurring early this
morning, and this will result in rather low relative humidity
values especially during peak heating today. The winds however
should be diminishing some during the afternoon as high pressure
gets closer and the pressure gradient relaxes some. Given the
rather dry airmass and high pressure building closer to us,
plenty of sunshine is expected.

The guidance is somewhat mixed with the high temperatures
today, and we sided with mostly a blend of continuity and mos.

The low-level flow may be more north compared to northeast,
however given decent 850 mb cold air advection we did not go as
high as some of the warmer guidance suggests. It will be
noticeably cooler along the coast including the southern coast
of delaware bay given a gusty wind off the chilly waters.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Wednesday
A cold night is in store. As some weak ridging arrives from the
west through the overnight, surface high pressure will slide
even closer to our area. As this occurs and a northerly flow
continues, the cold air advection is forecast to weaken. While a
pressure gradient remains on the east side of high pressure,
many places this evening should decouple enough to allow for
light winds to occur. Therefore, allowing the temperatures to
drop quickly especially given the rather low surface dew points.

A slower temperature drop may occur closest to the coast given
enough wind hanging on there, but even here it will still be a
cold night.

Low temperatures are a continuity multi-model blend with some
local adjustments made.

Long term Wednesday through Monday
The center of surface high pressure is forecast to pass across
our region on Wednesday. We are anticipating a sunny sky for
Wednesday and mostly clear conditions for Wednesday night with
temperatures a bit below normal.

A mid level long wave trough over central and eastern canada is
forecast to expand southward on Thursday. The feature is
expected to push a cold front toward our region at that time.

However, the trough should begin to build back toward the
central part of the country on Friday and a ridge is expected to
begin building off the east coast.

The forecast mid level pattern should prevent the cold front
from dropping through our region. The boundary is anticipated to
lift back to the north on Friday with a mild southwest flow
developing for Friday and Saturday. There may be some clouds
associated with the cold front from Thursday afternoon into
Friday, along with a minimal chance of showers in parts of
eastern pennsylvania and northern new jersey. Partly cloudy
conditions are expected for Friday night and Saturday. Afternoon
temperatures will become quite mild with highs favoring the 60s
on Friday and rising into the 70s on Saturday. The cold ocean
and bay temperatures will maintain a bit of a chill in coastal
areas.

A cold front approaching from the northwest is expected to
arrive on Sunday. We will continue to mention showers in
association with the front from Saturday night into early
Monday. If the showers linger well into Sunday night in the
elevated terrain of the poconos and far northern new jersey, the
precipitation could end as a little snow there.

Temperatures should trend back toward normal for the early part
of next week.

Aviation 10z Tuesday through Saturday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

becoming southeast.

Wednesday night... MainlyVFR. Variable wind 5 knots or less.

Thursday... MainlyVFR. South wind increasing to 5 to 10 knots.

Thursday night and Friday... MainlyVFR. There may be some late
night and early morning visibility restrictions. South to
southwest wind 10 knots or less.

Friday night and Saturday... MainlyVFR. There may be some late
night and early morning visibility restrictions. South to

Marine
An update was sent around 530 am to add the upper delaware bay
into the small craft advisory (goes through noon today) as winds
are gusting to around 25 knots.

Small craft advisory for all zones. North to northeast wind
gusts up to 30 knots today and tonight, however these will
diminish some toward early afternoon for delaware bay and by
later this afternoon across the northern atlantic coastal
waters. Some increase may then occur for a time tonight before
diminishing toward daybreak. Seas will continue to build today
given the stronger north to northeast flow (highest for the
delaware atlantic coastal waters).

Outlook...

Wednesday... Wave heights should remain around 5 feet on our
ocean waters from off atlantic city southward into Wednesday
morning. As a result, the small craft advisory remains in effect
until noon for that area. No marine headlines are expected for
delaware bay or for our ocean waters north of atlantic city.

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

Saturday... A south to southwest wind is forecast to increase to
15 to 20 knots with gusts approaching 25 knots. Wave heights on
our ocean waters may build to 5 feet.

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.
