Synopsis
Strong low pressure off the new england coast this morning will
move northeastward, reaching nova scotia this evening. High
pressure is expected to build into our region from the west for
Saturday and Sunday. A cold front approaching from the northwest
is anticipated to arrive on Sunday night with another cold
front following on Tuesday. High pressure is expected for
Wednesday and Thursday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
The coastal storm continues to wrap up and pull away from the
region. Rains snow showers N E are diminishing. Headlines have
been taken down. Gusty W to NW winds up to 30 mph will continue
into the afternoon.

We are expecting a decrease in cloud cover today as the storm
moves farther away from our region.

Maximum temperatures are forecast to be mostly in the 40s, with
readings not getting above the 30s in the elevated terrain of
the poconos and far northern new jersey.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Saturday
Dry air will continue to build into our region from the west
for tonight. We are anticipating a mostly clear sky along with
a west wind around 5 to 10 mph.

Low temperatures are expected to range from the upper 20s to
the lower 30s.

Long term Saturday through Thursday
We move into a relatively quieter pattern following the coastal
storm. The weekend looks fairly tranquil.

The strong area of low pressure associated with the coastal
storm that has contributed to the first real blast of winter
weather will continue to move away to our northeast, leading to
a cool, but fall-like stretch of weather Saturday and Sunday.

Cloud cover to the north across the poconos and northern new
jersey Saturday will slowly build southward through the weekend,
but conditions will remain dry. A subtle cold front surface
trough will move across the area Saturday afternoon, but we will
remain dry across the forecast area. While highs will still be
about ten degrees below average, it will feel nice compared to
today's well-below average high temperatures.

A cold front is expected to reach our region on Sunday night.

There may be some light snow and rain showers with the feature
from Sunday into Monday, mainly in eastern pennsylvania, and in
northern and central new jersey. High pressure should return for
the middle of the new week, building just to our south.

The normal high temperatures for the period range from the
middle 40s in the elevated terrain of the poconos to the middle
50s on the coastal plain. Highs will remain on the cool side
throughout the area next week, with Monday likely being the
warmest day ahead of the cold front with highs ranging from the
upper 30s in the poconos to low 50s over southern delaware.

Highs look remain generally below 50 across the forecast area
throughout the remainder of next week.

Aviation 18z Friday through Wednesday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Today... Lingering MVFR across the terminals with some daytime sc
developing across the area. Improvement toVFR is expected after
21z or 22z in most areas. West northwest wind 15 to 25 knots
with gusts into the 30s early then settling back later this
afternoon.

Tonight...VFR, mainly clear. West wind 5 to 10 knots.

Outlook...

Saturday-Saturday night...VFR conditions.

Sunday-Monday...VFR conditions expected with a chance of
showers.

Monday night-Tuesday... GenerallyVFR conditions expected.

Marine
The last gale on delaware bat was lowered and a SCA flag issued
until daybreak Saturday.

A gale warning is in effect until 4:00 pm for the coastal waters
of new jersey and delaware. Wind speeds will be slow to decrease
as the strong area of low pressure moves northeastward and away
from our region. The wind direction on our waters will settle
into the west northwest.

Outlook...

Saturday-Tuesday... Conditions expected to remain below advisory
levels with west-northwest winds 10-15 knots.

Tides coastal flooding
The storm surge increased to 3+ feet along the central and
northern parts of the new jersey coast out ahead of the coastal
storm overnight. As a result, there was minor coastal flooding
with some localized moderate flooding.

Fortunately, the astronomical tides are quite low as we are at
the first quarter phase of the moon. If the 3+ foot surge took
place around the time of a new or full moon, we would have been
experiencing moderate to major flooding.

The overnight high tide should be the only cycle of concern.

The wind is forecast to be westerly for this afternoon's high
tide, pushing water away from the coast.

Phi watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Nj... None.

De... None.

Md... None.

Marine... Gale warning until 4 pm est this afternoon for anz450>455.

Small craft advisory until 5 am est Saturday for anz430-431.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
