Synopsis
A cold front will continue to slowly progress south through the
region overnight before stalling tomorrow. A few waves of low
pressure will move along the stalled front through Monday. The
stalled front will lift northward as a warm front on Tuesday,
followed by a cold front on Wednesday. High pressure will build in
from the west from Thursday through the end of the week.

Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
The remainder of the flash flood watch has been cancelled as the
threat for heavy rain and flash flooding has diminished. There
will remain the chance for scattered showers, and isolated
thunderstorms across the area through the night however as the
cold front continues to push southward across southern new
jersey, southern delware, and southern maryland through the
night. Several short wave vorticity impulses will continue to
lead to enhanced lift across the area which will help create the
showers and isolated thunderstorms.

Patchy fog may also develop later tonight for some areas.

However, visibilities are not expected to drop significantly
however.

Short term 6 am Sunday morning through 6 pm Sunday
Cooler weather is in store for Sunday as we develop a decent
easterly flow across the region. With extensive low clouds in place,
it will be a mostly dreary kind of day with chances for showers to
occur throughout the day. Temperatures will struggle to reach into
the 80s across much of the area as the easterly flow wins out.

The cold front will remain stalled to our south. A strong mid level
shortwave will rotate through the region on Sunday. While we won't
destabilize much due to the amount of clouds across the region, we
will still remain pretty wet with pwats remaining around 2 inches.

Even with the lack of surface instability, the proximity to the
front and the shortwave moving through will provide some lift and
may allow for some thunderstorms to develop. Only expect isolated to
scattered convection to develop through Sunday afternoon.

Long term Sunday night through Saturday
Summary... Compared to the last few weeks, the next week looks rather
tranquil. The one exception is Tuesday and Wednesday when a warm
front followed by a cold front could bring widespread thunderstorms
to our region. Beyond Wednesday, it looks like the region will be
mostly dry through the rest of the week.

Details:
Sunday night and Monday... Lingering showers and thunderstorms
are possible in the vicinity of the stalled front (mostly
confined to DELMARVA and far S nj) Sunday night before a surface
high builds further southwest.

Tuesday... Warm front lifts north through the region. The main
mid and upper level short wave trough should remain well west of
the region. Consequently, the main focus for any showers and
thunderstorms in our area will be over pa. Precipitable water
values are expected to inch above 2 inches once again which
could lead to an increased threat for flooding. However, storm
motions are expected to be moderate, and it is uncertain how
widespread precipitation will be.

Wednesday... Cold front is expected to sweep through the region
during the day. The associated low will be propagating from the
great lakes into maine through the day. Thus, the best synoptic
scale forcing will remain to the north of the region. There will
still be enough forcing along the front for a round of showers
and thunderstorms with and just ahead of the front. At this
point, severe and flooding threat appears limited with this
event as the event should be fast enough to preclude a flooding
threat and instability looks to be limited.

Thursday through Saturday... The biggest difference from the
previous forecast is that the models trended further south and
east with how far the cold front will get before stalling.

Consequently, the region should be dry through this whole
period. Not only that, but with dry and cold air advection, we
will see temperatures near or slightly below normal (with highs
generally in the 70s and 80s), and heat index values will likely
not be significantly higher than the air temperature. It will be
quite a change from the past week.

Aviation 04z Sunday through Thursday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg, kilg,
kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Overnight... MostlyVFR conditions are expected to continue for a
few hours into the overnight behind the cold front. However,
ceilings will start to lower MVFR later tonight, possibly ifr at
a few locations. There will be isolated to scattered showers
through tonight. An isolated thunderstorm is possible, but is
more likely south of the TAF sites.

Winds turn more to the northwest then north
before becoming light overnight. The light overnight winds will
help to contribute to fog development overnight.

Sunday... MVFR ifr conditions expected through much of Sunday.

Easterly flow around 5 to 10 knots with gusts up to 20 knots
possible. A chance for more showers through the day with isolated
thunderstorms possible, mainly from kphl and south. Winds will start
off light out of the northeast before turning more to the east
through the day.

Outlook...

Sunday night and Monday... MostlyVFR conditions are expected. There
is a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms Sunday night, which
could result in temporary visibility and ceiling restrictions.

Moderate confidence.

Tuesday and Wednesday... Periods of MVFR or lower conditions possible
in showers and thunderstorms. Expect a wind shift to southeasterly
late in the day on Tuesday with a warm front, and an abrupt shift to
northwesterly winds on Wednesday with a cold front. Gusts to near 20
kt are possible on Wednesday. Low confidence on the timing of lower
conditions or thunderstorms, but moderate confidence on other
aspects of the forecast.

Thursday...VFR conditions expected with light northwesterly winds.

High confidence.

Marine
Tonight... Sub-small craft advisory conditions are expected to
continue across the area waters through tonight. South to southwest
winds around 10 knots will turn to the west then northwest 10 to 15
knots with gust up to 20 knots behind a cold frontal passage late
tonight. Winds will start to turn to the north and east towards
Sunday morning across the northern waters. A chance for showers and
thunderstorms tonight will produce locally higher winds and waves.

Sunday... Northeast winds will start to pick up to around 10 to 15
knots by daybreak across the northern new jersey waters with gusts
of 25 knots by early afternoon. Seas will also be on the rise and
are expected to reach 5 feet Sunday morning. We have issued a small
craft advisory for the 2 northern new jersey coastal water zones for
Sunday.

The delaware bay and coastal waters from little egg inlet south to
fenwick island are expected to remain below small craft advisory
criteria.

A chance for showers and thunderstorms will produce locally higher
winds and waves.

Outlook...

Sunday night into Monday... SCA conditions on the northern coastal
waters are likely to continue through much of the night Sunday night
and possibly linger into Monday morning before winds and seas
subside. On the rest of the waters, conditions are likely to stay
just below SCA criteria.

Tuesday through Thursday... Seas may approach 5 feet on the coastal
waters on Wednesday, and wind gusts to 20 kt are possible Tuesday
and Wednesday afternoons, but conditions are likely to stay below
sca criteria through this period.

Rip currents...

a low risk for the formation of dangerous rip currents is expected
to continue through Sunday. However, lightning will be a concern
through the early overnight and again Sunday.

Phi watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Nj... None.

De... None.

Md... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory from 6 am Sunday to 6 am edt Monday for
anz450-451.

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.
