Synopsis
Low pressure will track up the ohio valley through tonight and be in
the vicinity of the eastern great lakes Friday morning. A warm front
will gradually lift northward and across our area late tonight and
Friday morning. A strong cold front will then cross our region late
Friday afternoon into Friday evening. A quick moving system will
move across our area during Sunday, then its associated cold front
looks to stall near the mid-atlantic region for much of next week.

Near term until 6 am Friday morning
Surface low pressure will be in the lower ohio river valley
this evening with a warm front extending to the waters off
virginia. The low should reach lake erie around daybreak Friday.

The warm front should be up into eastern maryland and southern
delaware at that time.

Mostly mid-level clouds until around midnight. Some high based
stratocumulus is possible at times over parts of eastern
pennsylvania and northern new jersey. The areas of light rain
showers sprinkles over eastern pennsylvania, and northern and
central new jersey this afternoon will continue to push to the
east.

As the warm front approaches after midnight, a more substantial
area of showers is forecast to pass through our region from the
southwest. Cloud bases should lower, as well.

A light onshore flow is expected for tonight. Low temperatures
will favor the 50s in our region.

Short term 6 am Friday morning through Friday night
There were two mid level troughs well to our west this afternoon,
one over the upper mississippi river valley and the other over the
lower mississippi river valley. Both will progress toward our region
but they are not expected to phase together entirely.

The southern feature is forecast to lift to the northeast and
weaken. Its axis should pass off the middle atlantic coast on Friday
afternoon. The northern trough is expected to deepen as it moves to
the east. It should begin to take on a negative tilt on Friday
afternoon and its axis is anticipated to pass over our region late
on Friday night.

At the surface, the warm front is expected to lift slowly through
our region on Friday. There is some question as to whether or not it
will clear all of the pocono region, the lehigh valley and northern
new jersey before the cold front arrives late in the day.

The surface low is forecast to pass across the eastern great lakes
on Friday, reaching southern quebec by Friday night. It will pull a
cold front across our region from west to east during the late
afternoon and early evening hours. A wave of low pressure may
develop along the front as it passes through our vicinity.

Showers are expected during the early morning. There may be a bit of
a break in the precipitation from the late morning into the early
afternoon. The main period of concern for our region appears to be
in the 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm time frame.

The storm prediction center has placed the southwestern half of our
forecast area (from around reading to philadelphia to atlantic city
southwestward) under its marginal risk designation for severe
weather. Areas from centreville, maryland and milton, delaware
southward are under the slight risk designation. Along with the
strengthening mid level trough approaching from the west, a low
level southerly jet will develop overhead. We are expecting marginal
instability in the warm sector where some breaks of sunshine
develop. The factors should come together to provide a potential
focus for severe weather, especially in northeastern maryland and
delaware.

Our other concern is for moderate to heavy rainfall. The model
guidance continues to increase amounts a bit from run to run.

Presently we are expecting generally 0.50 to 1.25 inches of rain.

The lower amounts should be near the coast and the higher amounts
from southeastern pennsylvania up into northwestern new jersey.

Locally higher totals are possible.

The cold front should be off the coast by 9 or 10 o'clock on Friday
evening, bringing an end to the potential for heavy rain and
thunderstorms. Dry air will follow from the west and northwest
during the course of Friday night.

A light east to southeast wind on Friday morning should become south
around 10 to 15 mph in the wake of the warm front. Once the cold
front passes, the wind should become west northwest.

The temperature forecast for Friday is quite tricky. Temperatures
will be dependent on the progress of the warm front. Readings may
not get above the 50s in parts of our northern counties. However, it
seems a good bet that much of eastern maryland and southern delaware
will rise well into the 70s.

Long term Saturday through Thursday
Summary... Windy and cooler Saturday, then less wind Sunday with some
showers; stalled front in the vicinity of the mid-atlantic next week
may result in times of unsettled weather.

Synoptic overview... A potent negative-tilt trough in the northeast
Saturday will lift into the canadian maritimes for the second half
of the weekend. A short wave trough quickly on its heels slides
across the region during Sunday, then a more zonal flow should tend
to stall a surface front in a east-west fashion in the vicinity of
the mid-atlantic. The flow may tend to amplify during the Wednesday
and Thursday timeframe, and this may push the boundary northward as
a warm front.

For Saturday... A negatively titled upper-level trough will be
lifting across the northeast Saturday. This will take deepening low
pressure across new england. As the trough axis crosses our area to
start Saturday coupled with strong short wave energy, some
wraparound showers may be ongoing across the far northern areas. The
flow is progressive enough, therefore any showers will quickly end
during the morning hours. Cloud cover may take some time to clear
especially the northern half of the area within the cyclonic flow
and cold air advection. The best cold air advection is forecast to
occur during the morning with the continuation of pressure rises.

This combined with 35-45 knots of wind in the 925-850 mb level and a
tight pressure gradient will result in a windy day. The forecast
soundings show wind gusts to the surface to near 35 knots, therefore
bumped up the winds some. We should however fall short of wind
advisory criteria. The strongest winds should occur during the
first half of the day within the better cold air advection, as
after about 18z the cold air advection weakens and the pressure
gradient starts to relax. The winds then drop off quickly
Saturday night as weak high pressure arrives.

Clouds should begin to increase again Saturday night as the next
system quickly approaches toward Sunday morning. Much if any showers
with this system should hold off until Sunday.

For Sunday... A short wave trough is forecast to quickly shift
eastward from the great lakes and upper ohio valley, driving surface
low pressure right across our region and offshore during the course
of the day. While moisture is less there is a ribbon of decent lift
with this feature and therefore showers are expected. Areas more
favored for showers (or even a period of rain) look to be across the
northern to central areas given the track of the mid level short
wave energy. Some guidance hinting at some snow at the higher
elevations of the poconos, while other guidance is warmer. For now,
did not include any snow given the uncertainty. Cloud cover and some
showers should tend to hold temperatures down more, although warm
air advection ahead of the surface low should boost temperatures
into the lower 70s across parts of delmarva. Overall, there should
be a decent temperature gradient from south to north across our
region. Clearing should occur Sunday night in the wake of this
system and its cold front with surface high pressure building into
the area. The cold front should begin to stall to our south Sunday
night as the flow aloft turns more zonal.

For Monday through Thursday... After dry weather during the day
Monday as a surface high moves through the area, several short waves
look to move into the northeast as a building ridge develops in the
southeast and western atlantic. There will be a surface front
stalled in an east-west fashion to our south within the initial
zonal flow, however where exactly this boundary sits and the track
of mid level energy north of it will have an impact on our sensitive
weather. There may be several rounds of showers storms along and
north of the front, however there is uncertainty on the placement.

If the ridge builds enough, our region may be more protected with
much of the rainfall being to our west and north. It does appear as
the flow begins to amplify closer to Thursday, low pressure tracking
into the central great lakes should start to push the stalled
boundary northward as a warm front. The extent of cloud cover and
any showers will have an affect on local temperatures.

Aviation 00z Friday through Tuesday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Tonight... GenerallyVFR through roughly 05z. Scattered showers
are possible through the remainder of the evening. Ceilings
lowering to MVFR after 06z across the rest of the TAF sites with
an increasing potential for showers. Wind speeds remaining less
than 10 knots, generally out of the east.

Friday... MVFR with showers in the early morning. Possible
improvement toVFR in the late morning and early afternoon. Showers
and scattered thunderstorms move back in after 18z with MVFR
and ifr conditions likely. The rain will become heavy at times.

East to southeast wind less than 10 knots becoming south 10 to
15 knots with gusts around 20s knots. A brief line of showers
with thunder possible may move through from 22z Friday to 00z
Saturday, with winds shifting to more of a westerly direction
from 10 to 15 knots and gusts from 20 to 25 knots.

Outlook...

Saturday...VFR. West-northwest winds 15-25 knots with gusts up to 35
knots, diminishing to 10 knots or less and even light and variable at
night.

Sunday... A period of MVFR or ifr conditions possible with some
showers especially near and north of phl, theVFR at night. Light
and variable winds becoming southerly near 10 knots, then becoming
northwest at night.

Monday and Tuesday... MainlyVFR, however some showers are possible
late Monday and Tuesday. Northeast to east and southeast winds up to
10 knots Monday, then becoming west-southwest Tuesday.

Marine
Conditions should remain relatively quiet for tonight with an
onshore flow around 10 knots. A warm front will lift over the
coastal waters of delaware and new jersey on Friday. A southerly
flow will develop in its wake. Wind speeds and wave heights will
increase and small craft advisory conditions are anticipated. The
wind is expected to shift to the west northwest on Friday evening
with the passage of a cold front. Wind gusts of 25 to 30 knots are
expected for Friday night.

Outlook...

Saturday... West to northwest wind gusts to around 30 knots with deep
mixing, then these diminish at night. Gale force gusts are possible
at times in the morning, however this is less certain. Issued a
small craft advisory through 6 pm due to high confidence in advisory
level gusts.

Sunday and Monday... Winds and seas may increase to small craft
advisory criteria later Sunday, otherwise the conditions should be
below advisory criteria.

Tuesday... The conditions are anticipated to be below small craft
advisory criteria.
