Synopsis
High pressure builds over our area later tonight and remains in
place through the weekend, then shifts offshore on Monday. Low
pressure moves east across the gulf coast states Sunday and Monday,
then tracks up the mid-atlantic coast later Tuesday through late
Wednesday. High pressure then builds well to our west and south
later Thursday and Friday.

Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
Low pressure is positioned near the canadian maritimes this
evening while high pressure was centered over the midwest u.S.

The pressure gradient resulted in a breezy day earlier, but now
the gusts have subsided for the most part with the loss of
daytime mixing. The sustained wind speeds show a more gradual
decrease overnight.

Overall, not much change from earlier. The winds, and how fast
they diminish will be an important part of the forecast for
tonight and a key link to the frost freeze potential. The
current thinking is winds should become light late tonight with
high pressure building in from the west. Once this happens,
temperatures will drop rather quickly overnight, bottoming out
in the lower to mid 30s before daybreak (except upper 30s in the
cities and along the coast). A freeze warning was issued for
cecil county, md and for berks, western montgomery and western
chester counties in pa with lows expected to fall in the 30-32f
range and the growing season declared active. A frost advisory
was issued for northeastern md, de, the northern and western
suburbs of philadelphia and central and southern nj where (1)
the growing season is already underway, (2) temperatures are
forecast to dip into the mid 30s and (3) calm winds will provide
favorable conditions for frost formation. High clouds will
start to stream in from the west late but should not have much
of an impact on radiational cooling.

Short term 6 am Saturday morning through 6 pm Saturday
High pressure moves overhead tomorrow. A jet streak at the base of
the upper low to our northeast will be associated with mid and high
clouds over the region. There is some uncertainty regarding the
extent of the cloud cover tomorrow, but do think there will be
enough filtered sunshine or breaks in the clouds to allow for
temperatures to reach their full mixing potential during the
afternoon. Forecast highs generally range from 55-60f with slightly
cooler spots in the southern poconos and warmer spots in
philadelphia and toward southern delaware. NW winds 4-8 mph in the
morning, increasing to 8-12 mph in the afternoon.

Long term Saturday night through Friday
Summary... Turning warmer, however a coastal low looks to affect our
weather Tuesday night through Wednesday.

Synoptic overview... An upper-level trough across the northeast is
forecast to shift offshore later in the weekend. As this occurs, a
ridge slides eastward from the great lakes driving surface high
pressure over our area. However, strong energy underneath this ridge
moves across the gulf coast states over the weekend into early next
week with surface low pressure associated with it. Meanwhile,
northern stream short wave over the great lakes region is forecast
to begin phasing with the southern stream closed low over the
southeast u.S. The model spread increases during this time frame due
to the timing of the phasing and the speed of the resulting surface
low near the east coast. The surface low is forecast to basically
slide northward by the mid-atlantic coast during mid-week before
shifting to our northeast to start Thursday. An upper-level trough
looks to then settle into the east for the end of next week while
weak surface high pressure slides to our south. This trough may
eventually lead to another coastal low development with time.

For Saturday night through Monday... Surface high pressure builds
over the region as an upper-level ridge slides eastward. The surface
high though will shift offshore Monday as low pressure tracks across
the southeastern u.S. The presence of surface high pressure over the
area will result in subsidence and a lack of clouds overall with
less wind, with the airmass modifying through the weekend. This
leads to each afternoon getting warmer. The exception will be the
coastal locales as light winds Sunday and Monday especially should
result in a sea breeze each afternoon and early evening. Low
temperatures though will still be chilly due to good radiational
cooling conditions, with some places potentially having frost or
freeze conditions especially Saturday night.

For Tuesday through Thursday... While a coastal low is anticipated to
affect our weather, the details are less certain. This is due to the
timing of phasing energy toward the east coast, with a closed low
with the southern stream and a short wave arriving from the great
lakes region within the northern stream. The southern stream energy
will drive surface low pressure off the southeast u.S. Coast Tuesday
morning, then energy interaction between the northern and southern
streams will help turn the low northward by later Tuesday and
continue through Wednesday. The latest thinking is to bring the low
just off of our coast later Wednesday then into new england Thursday
morning. The combination of onshore flow (increasing moisture) and
increasing synoptic ascent will bring widespread rain mainly
Tuesday night and Wednesday. Some of the rain could be heavy at
times, however the system may be moving quick enough where the
window of opportunity for heavy rain is shortened.

A period of stronger onshore flow could result in some coastal
flooding, although we are between the new full moon cycles. There is
still plenty of time to iron out the details, however given enough
agreement for widespread rain for a time we continued with likely to
low-end categorical pops for portions of this time frame. Initial
overunning rain should develop later Tuesday, with rain shifting
north Wednesday and then ending at night or early Thursday as low
pressure shifts to our northeast.

For Friday... An amplified upper-level trough may settle into the
east with some weak surface features moving through. Depending on
the evolution aloft, the airmass looks mild though and therefore
some showers cannot be ruled out if there is enough instability
during the day. As of now, we followed the wpc guidance rather
closely.

Aviation 01z Saturday through Wednesday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg, kilg,
kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Tonight...VFR. High clouds move in toward early morning with
cigs at or above 15 kft agl. NW winds with sustained speeds
decreasing more gradually from 8-12 kt early this evening to
3-6 kt overnight.

Saturday...VFR with mid to high clouds (cigs above 10 kft agl).

Light NW winds 5-10 kt.

Outlook...

Saturday night...VFR. Northwest winds 5-10 knots, becoming mostly
light and variable.

Sunday...VFR. Light and variable winds, becoming south to southwest
around 5 knots (becoming southeast in the afternoon at acy, miv and
possibly ilg).

Monday...VFR. East to southeast winds around 5 knots.

Tuesday... MainlyVFR with increasing and gradually lower clouds,
then some light rain should develop at night. East-southeast winds
around 10 knots. Moderate confidence.

Wednesday... MVFR ifr conditions probable with a period of rain. A
period of gusty east to southeast winds possible, then lighter and
turning west to northwest at night. Low confidence with the
details.

Marine
Tonight... Nw winds will continue to be in the 10-20 kt range
tonight. Short-period, wind-driven nwly swells will be in the
3-4 ft range in our coastal waters and 2 ft or less in the
delaware bay.

Saturday... Nw winds 10-15 kt in the morning will become
light variable toward midday and then S by mid afternoon in
association with the development of a sea-breeze near the
coast. Mesoscale models show the S winds strengthening to near
15 kt with gusts to 20 kt late in the day in the coastal waters
of nj.

Outlook...

Saturday night through Monday... .The conditions are expected to be
below small craft advisory criteria is over our area.

Tuesday and Wednesday... Small craft advisory conditions looking
likely. Low pressure is forecast to move up the east coast Tuesday
night through late Wednesday with onshore flow in advance of it.

Winds and seas therefore increase, with wind gusts anticipated as
of now to remain below gale force.
