Low pressure located in eastern pennsylvania early this morning
will move northwest toward the eastern great lakes and southern
ontario today. Meanwhile, another area of low pressure located
in the middle part of the ohio river valley will move to the
south. The low is expected to meander in the southeastern states
during the first half of the new week. High pressure located
over the western north atlantic is anticipated to gain some
influence over our weather during the week. A cold front may
arrive from the northwest on Friday.
Near term until 6 pm this evening
Surface low pressure is centered in eastern pennsylvania early
this morning. The low will continue to push to the
north northwest this morning towards western new york.
Showers are exiting fairly quickly to the north this morning. We
should see a little bit of drying out this morning although the
southerly flow is keeping it pretty moist in the low levels.
Considerable cloudiness is expected for today. Not expecting
many breaks in the cloud cover to occur but we could see some
sun peeking out, mainly across the southern areas which remain
further away from the surface. Even though the skies will remain
overcast across the region, the southerly flow turns more
southwesterly aloft, which will allow for some warming to occur
through the day. High temperatures will rebound from the
unseasonably cool temperatures of Saturday and rise back into
the low to mid 80s for today.
A few shortwaves rotate through the mid level flow today and
may provide enough lift to allow for some thunderstorms to
develop. Instability at the surface seems marginal with the best
instability remaining to our south. However, given any sun
breaking through the clouds along with the shortwave activity,
we could see some storms pop up this afternoon. While pwats are
not nearly as high as they were on Saturday (generally between
1.50-1.75 inches) we could still see some decent rainfall.
However, storm motion looks to be fairly progressive so do not
anticipate that this will be a big flooding threat.
Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Monday
Deep southerly flow will continue as we get sandwiched between
a deep upper low to the west and strong ridging to the east over
the atlantic. This will continue to bring in moisture rich air
to the area. With the influx of moisture, we will continue to
have a chance for showers and thunderstorms through tonight.
Best chances for thunder will be earlier in the period but we
could see a few storms continue into the overnight.
Temperatures won't fall much through the overnight as we remain
pretty socked in with clouds and a continue southwest flow
aloft. Overnight lows will only drop into the low to mid 70s
across the region. With so much low level moisture in place, we
may see some fog develop across parts of the region.
Long term Monday through Saturday
A deep mid level trough is forecast to be located from the
central great lakes to florida on Monday morning, with a ridge
over the western north atlantic. The general pattern should
remain in place through Wednesday, with the ridge expected to
retreat and the trough anticipated to lift northeastward on
The expected weather pattern will maintain a deep southerly
flow of moist air into and over our region on Monday, Tuesday
and Wednesday. There is the potential for showers and
thunderstorms each day, especially in the afternoon and evening
hours. The abundant moisture will result in locally heavy
rainfall. As the ground becomes increasingly saturated in parts
of our area, the possibility of flooding along small streams and
creeks, and in areas of poor drainage will increase.
There is the likelihood of showers and thunderstorms from
Wednesday night into Thursday in much of our region as the mid
level trough approaches and passes overhead. Again, there may be
some locally heavy rain at that time.
A mid level long wave trough is expected to settle over eastern
canada for late in the week into Saturday. The trough is
forecast to influence the great lakes and the northeastern
states. It should push a cold front into our region. The chance
of widespread showers and thunderstorms will likely decrease
with the resulting loss of deep atmospheric moisture.
The very humid air will likely result in a relatively narrow
diurnal temperature range from Monday through Thursday. Daytime
highs should be in the upper 70s to the middle 80s, with
overnight lows ranging mostly from the upper 60s to the middle
70s. The daily temperature ranges may increase slightly for
Friday and Saturday with highs mainly in the 80s and lows in the
60s and lower 70s.
Aviation 10z Sunday through Thursday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.
Today... Mainly ifr conditions to start the day. Improvement to
MVFR is expected through this morning withVFR conditions
possible late morning early afternoon. Some showers will|
continue to move through the region this morning, ending from
south to north. A lull in precipitation is expected for today
with showers and possible thunderstorms returning, mainly for
this afternoon evening. Southeast to south winds around 10 to 15
knots with gusts up to 20 knots this afternoon.
Tonight...VFR conditions early will deteriorate to MVFR ifr in
showers and thunderstorms. Southeast winds around 10 knots
overnight. Fog possible as low level moisture remains high.
Monday... Variable conditions (ifr MVFRVFR) with showers and a
chance of thunderstorms. Southeast wind around 10 knots.
Monday night and Tuesday... Variable conditions (ifr MVFRVFR)
at night, mainlyVFR during the day, except in precipitation.
Showers likely and a chance of thunderstorms. Southeast wind 5
to 10 knots.
Tuesday night and Wednesday... Variable conditions
(ifr MVFRVFR) at night, mainlyVFR during the day, except in
precipitation. Showers likely and a chance of thunderstorms.
South wind 5 to 10 knots.
Wednesday night and Thursday... Variable conditions
(ifr MVFRVFR) with showers and a chance of thunderstorms. South
to southwest wind 5 to 10 knots.
The small craft advisory on the delaware bay has been
canacelled. Winds have fallen below 25 knots and are expected to
remain below 25 knots through today.
The gale warning has been cancelled as we are no longer seeing
34 knot or greater winds across the waters. The gale warning has
been converted to a small craft advisory. There is not a small
craft advisory in effect for the new jersey and delaware
coasts through tonight.
Wind are expected to subside through this morning, eventually
losing the bulk of their gustiness. Winds will become south to
southeast around 10 to 15 knots with gusts up to 25 knots. Even
though winds will fall below SCA criteria, seas will remain
above 5 feet through tonight.
Monday... Small craft advisory conditions are expected with
southerly wind gusts around 25 knots. Wave heights on our ocean
waters should be in the 5 to 6 foot range.
Monday night and Tuesday... Wave heights on our ocean waters are
expected to remain around 5 feet. As a result, a small craft
advisory will likely be needed at that time.
Tuesday night and Wednesday... No marine headlines are
Wednesday night and Thursday... Wave heights on our ocean waters
are expected to build around 5 or 6 feet due to the persistent
long southerly fetch. As a result, a small craft advisory may be
needed at that time.
there is a high risk for the formation of dangerous rip
currents for today.
Although the low pressure will shift well to the north of the
region today, the surf will remain pretty agitated. Surf zone
waves will be around 5 to 7 feet, with a strong southerly flow
and a longer wave period than on Saturday. Keeping these factors
in mind, we have maintained the high risk of rip currents.
An enhanced rip current risk should linger into much of the new
week as a persistent southerly fetch keeps wave heights around
4 to 6 feet on the waters off our coast.
The kdox radar will remain offline until parts and a
maintenance kit to replace the azimuth and elevation motors are
received. The current estimated return to service is early in
the new week.
Phi watches warnings advisories
Nj... High rip current risk through this evening for njz014-024>026.

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.
