Synopsis
High pressure over the canadian maritimes continues to drift
out to sea. Meanwhile, several weak clipper systems will move
across the region through Tuesday. A cold front crosses the area
Wednesday night. Arctic high pressure builds east for
thanksgiving and moves offshore on Friday. Another storm system
may affect the area next weekend.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Fog has been slow to burn off, but vsbys are trending upward
attm in most areas. Adjustments to wx temperature and sky cover
were made for the morning update.

The next disturbance, stronger than the previous one, is
entering WRN pa ATTM and should bring a general increase in
clouds later today. Temperatures will remain somewhat variable
with some breaks in the fog and low clouds bringing locally
higher temps. Winds will remain light and variable much of the
day.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Tuesday
A weak surface low will move northeastward through the region
tonight, downstream of a digging vort MAX approaching the
eastern ohio valley by the end of the period. A combination of
differential cyclonic vorticity advection downstream of the vort
max and fairly strong concentrated low-level isentropic ascent
along the northeastward-extending baroclinic zone should allow
for some light precipitation to develop and move through much of
northern central pennsylvania and northern new jersey during
the night. The lift diminishes quickly to the southeast of the
fall line, and I have diminished pops accordingly in these areas
overnight, though a few showers down to the urban corridor are
plausible, especially late as the vort MAX makes its push
eastward. Temperatures look fairly warm, at least southeast of
the poconos and far northwest new jersey, so most of the
precipitation is expected to be liquid. However, thermal
profiles are questionable enough to include a mention of rain or
snow north of i-80, with the potential likely greatest near
sunrise as some cooling aloft permits most of the profile to be
near below freezing, even with slightly above-freezing surface
temps. Given the light QPF and warm surface, not expecting
appreciable snow accumulations overnight in these
areas... Perhaps a a couple tenths in the higher elevations.

Temperatures will be warmer tonight with increased cloud cover
as the vort MAX approaches. Used a statistical guidance blend,
which suggests lows near freezing in the poconos, in the mid 40s
along the beaches and lower delmarva, and in the upper 30s to
lower 40s elsewhere.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
Weak clipper system moves through the region on Tuesday. Models
trending a bit dryer, and cold air will be limited to the
southern poconos, northern nj, and lehigh valley, where snow in
the morning mixes with rain as the afternoon progresses. Qpf
amounts on Tuesday will generally be less than 1 10", and less
than an inch of snow is possible for the southern poconos and
northern nj.

A cold front ahead of an arctic airmass approaches on Wednesday
and moves south through the region late Wednesday night and
thanksgiving morning. Upper trough with strong shortwave energy
remains north and east of the region, so any precip with the
passage of the front will be limited to the southern poconos and
northern nj. For now, will cap pops at chance Wednesday
afternoon and evening. Since the atmosphere will be fairly dry,
qpf amounts will be limited, and snowfall amounts may be less
than an inch.

From there, a bitterly cold airmass seeps southward into the
northeast and mid-atlantic. 850 mb temps will fall to around
-10c in DELMARVA and to -19c in the southern poconos and
northern nj. Lows Wednesday night will drop into the teens and
low 20s, and highs on thanksgiving will not be much higher than
what will occur around midnight or so Wednesday night. Daytime
temperatures on thanksgiving will remain in the teens and 20s,
maybe touching freezing in southern delmarva. Thanksgiving
night, lows will drop into the single digits in the southern
poconos, and otherwise in the teens for most of southeast pa and
nj, and in the low 20s in delmarva.

Wind chills will largely be in the teens for most of the region
Wednesday night through thanksgiving night, and maybe as low as
10 below in the southern poconos.

High pressure from the north and west builds overhead by Friday
morning, then moves offshore during the day. Return flow sets
up behind the high, and temperatures begin to warm back up going
into the weekend.

A storm system then develops over the gulf coast and southeast
and appears on models to make a run up the coast over the
weekend. Current model trends have temperatures warm enough to
keep precip mostly as rain for the duration.

Aviation 16z Monday through Friday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

This afternoon... Slow improvement to predominantlyVFR, though
brief sub-vfr conditions may occur if lower clouds develop,
especially (but not confined to) northwest of phl. Winds
light variable. Low confidence.

Tonight... Periods of sub-vfr probable, especially after
midnight and especially north west of phl. Rain may occur at
rdg abe, though effects at the terminals would be minimal. Winds
light variable. Low confidence.

Outlook...

Tuesday... MVFR or ifr with rain snow possible at krdg kabe and
rain elsewhere. Improving conditions late.

Tuesday night through Wednesday...VFR.

Wednesday night through Thursday... MainlyVFR. Gusty N winds.

Friday...VFR.

Marine
Sub-advisory winds seas are expected through the period with
generally fair weather. Winds will predominantly be
southwesterly from 5 to 15 kts, possibly with gusts to 20 kts or
so overnight. Seas will primarily be near or below 3 feet.

Outlook...

Tuesday through Wednesday... SCA conditions possible with wind
gusts to 25 kt.

Wednesday night... A period of gale force winds is possible
Wednesday evening. Otherwise, SCA conditions with gusty nw
winds. There is a chance for freezing spray, mainly across
northern ocean zones.

Thursday... SCA conditions possible. Freezing spray possible.

Thursday night through Friday... Conditions subside to sub-sca
conditions.

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.
