Synopsis
Low pressure with its attendant frontal system will move off
the east coast tonight. High pressure will build across the gulf
coast through the end of the week, then offshore over the
weekend, bringing fair weather to the mid- atlantic region. Low
pressure is forecast to develop over the central u.S. On Monday.

This low will move northeast through the great lakes Monday
night into Tuesday, pulling a cold front across the mid-
atlantic area on Tuesday.

Near term until 6 am Thursday morning
630 pm estf: lowered min temps tonight NW nj and parts of E pa
for some expected radiational cooling where lows may dip to 5
above over the typically cold sheltered areas when radiational
cooling develops later tonight over a nice new fresh snowpack.

Will post an updated snowfall pns later tonight and expect
another tomorrow. The snow analysis posted this afternoon on our
social media sites will have to suffice.

Remainder little change. From the 4 pm fcst discussion below.

Expecting a return to tranquil weather overnight. The mid and
upper level low progressing east should move off the carolinas
coast late tonight. The track of this low should be far enough
south that we won't see any additional precipitation, except for
some very light snow through early evening across southern
delaware.

Otherwise, expect clearing skies. With the light northwesterly flow,
should see temperatures continue to fall, with lows in the single
digits and teens across the area. The strongest winds and lowest
temperatures should not be coincident with each other which will
limit the low wind chill threat. Still, wind chill values below zero
are possible across the southern poconos (cold, but still above
advisory level, and a far cry better than a few weeks ago).

Short term 6 am Thursday morning through 6 pm Thursday
On the heels of the low, a mid level short wave ridge is
expected to propagate over the region through the day tomorrow
resulting in mostly sunny conditions. At the surface, the
pressure gradient is expected to increase for a period tomorrow
as the surface high builds in. As a result, could see some gusty
conditions, but on land, not expecting gusts above 25 mph.

Temperature wise, we will still have cold air advection with the
northwesterly flow. As a result, expect highs to be from the mid 20s
to near 40 across the region, or about 5 degrees below normal.

Long term Thursday night through Wednesday
The extended forecast will feature somewhat above normal
temperatures (for a change) and generally fair weather at least
through this weekend. A fairly strong frontal passage with
associated low pressure and precipitation is expected sometime
on Tuesday of next week.

By Thursday night the low pressure aloft now over the southern
appalachians will be well offshore. A fast-moving shortwv trof
will swing across new england but should have little effect on
sensible weather over the mid-atlantic region. Thereafter
through the weekend zonal flow aloft will prevail across the
north-central and northeast us. Meanwhile a large area of high
pressure centered along the glfmex coast will gradually shift
east and off the southeast us coast by Sunday. Westerly flow
around the northern periphery of this high will help maintain
fair weather with a trend toward moderating temps, especially
starting Saturday.

A fairly deep trof aloft is forecast to move into the western us
over the weekend and into the central grtplns by Monday. In
response surface low pressure should develop over the plains and
move eastward into the grtlks by Tuesday. The associated cold
front should move through nj and vicinity roughly in the Tuesday
morning time frame, although the latest ECMWF looks a bit
slower. Increasing SW low-level flow ahead of the low front will
result in increasing moisture starting Sunday night. At that
time the forecast includes slight chance pops well north of phl,
with the possibility of some freezing rain or drizzle,
depending on the degree of overnight surface cooling.

Forecast pops increase from chance on Monday to likely Monday
night with the approaching cold front. Depending on how quickly
cold air moves in, there could be some changeover to snow in the
poconos late Monday night. Due to timing uncertainty, the
forecast maintains some chance for precip through Tuesday,
mainly in the morning. Forecast MAX temps for Tue are still
above freezing (and above normal) but cold advection aloft could
produce snow showers well N W of phl.

The air mass behind the front is not terribly cold and forecast
max temps for Wednesday look to be still slightly above normal.

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

Overnight...VFR conditions are expected with CIGS abv 9000 ft
along and E of ilg phl ttn clearing east during the night.

Northwesterly winds near or below 10kt are expected to continue
overnight. High confidence.

Tomorrow...VFR conditions with few, if any clouds. Northwesterly
winds 10 to 15 kt with gusts up to 20 kt. High confidence.

Outlook...

Friday through Sunday...VFR conditions expected. West to
southwest winds, generally less than 10 kt. High confidence.

Monday... MainlyVFR conditions but occasional MVFR possible in
scattered showers.

Marine
Expect the highest winds, and most widespread small craft advisory
conditions to occur late tonight through mid morning Thursday. Gusts
near or above 25 kt are likely to continue through the rest of
Thursday. Therefore, have continued the SCA as is for now.

Outlook...

Thursday night... Conditions expected to drop below advisory
levels.

Friday-Sunday... Conditions expected to remain below advisory levels,
but winds may periodically gust around 20 knots.

Monday... Increasing south winds with gusts possibly approaching
sca levels late in the day.

Equipment
The NOAA all-hazards weather radio transmitter in sudlersville
has returned to service with the correction of earlier phone
line issues. Rdg temp has rts.

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.
