Synopsis
A ridge of high pressure will weaken across the area today. A
low pressure system and front will approach from the great lakes
region tonight. Another low will develop off the coast and
affect the weather tonight and early Wednesday. More high
pressure will build towards the area late this week and remain
for the weekend. Low pressure and a cold front will move towards
the middle atlantic region for the start of next week.

Near term through Wednesday morning
A complete update to the forecast was published late this
morning. A new storm total snow graphic and experimental
probabilistic graphics were sent to the web as well. These
updates required headline changes. The key changes in the
forecast are listed below:
(1) upgraded to a winter storm warning for carbon and monroe
counties in pa and sussex county in nj with 5-7" of snowfall
(including the 1" or less that has fallen so far) expected for
this event. Hi-res models are keying in on strong mesoscale
banding on the northwestern side of the developing coastal low
late this evening and overnight over the southern poconos and
continuing into the Wednesday morning commute for northwestern
nj.

(2) tweaked the start end times for the winter weather
advisories with an emphasis on delaying the onset of
accumulating snow to the S E of the lehigh valley, southern
poconos and far NW nj (where light snow is ongoing). See the
experimental onset timing graphic on our winter webpage for
specifics.

(3) introduced more mixing E of the fall line, especially early
on in the event. Temps this afternoon in the 40s along E of
i-95 and mid to upper 30s just to the west. Just about all of
the guidance shows this residual warm boundary layer present at
the onset of precipitation tonight, resulting in mainly rain
along and E of i-95 at the onset and a rain-snow mix just to the
n w. CAA and dynamical cooling will allow for a changeover to
snow from NW to SE toward early morning but expect riming and
melting at the surface to result in lower snow ratios and thus
snowfall amounts near and especially south of i-78 as well as
east of i-287.

(4) emphasized window for heavy snow with snowfall rates of 1-2"
per hour late tonight across NE pa and N nj. The heavy snow
potential extends into the first half of Wednesday morning
along and east of the de valley. This means significant impacts
for the morning commute. Even though snowfall amounts are
generally lower than warning criteria for warren and morris
counties in nj (3-6"), we will have to consider upgrading to a
warning based on impact on the morning rush.

Short term Wednesday afternoon
The accumulating snow should be over by midday for just about
the entire area. However, very light snow or flurries could
linger or redevelop during the afternoon near the coast as the
upper low and associated upper-level jet streak approaches from
the southwest.

High temperatures range from the mid 20s in NE pa to mid 30s in
c S nj, philadelphia and delmarva.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
The upper low that affected the weather in the near short term
parts of the forecast will be moving though the tidewater area
and it will take the last of the precip with it. We only has a
few lingering showers Wed evening across the ERN srn most parts
of the area. Sprawling high pressure from the southern
mississippi valley will begin to move into the area. Dry weather
is expected for Wed night and into Thu Fri as the high builds.

Temperatures will be below normal until Friday, when readings
will be near normal.

The high continues to affect the weather this weekend, so more
fair weather is expected. The airmass will moderate as the upper
ridge continues to build. Temperatures will be closer to 10
degrees above normal by Saturday and the near 15 degrees above
normal by Sunday.

The next low pressure system will be rather intense as it moves
from the plains states to the great lakes area early next week.

We will be on the warmer side of the system, so mostly rain is
expected at this time. Temperatures will still be much above
normal Mon before returning closer to normal tue. High chance
and low likely pops (srn poconos) are in the fcst at this time.

Pops decrease back to slgt chc for Tuesday after the cold front
crosses the area.

A small craft advisory will remain in effect for our ocean
waters from manasquan inlet to fenwick island until 6:00 pm.

feet due to the residual onshore flow.

There should be a lull early tonight. Low pressure off the
coasts of delaware and new jersey tonight should strengthen as
it moves northeastward on Wednesday. Wind speeds and wave
heights are forecast to increase gradually from late tonight
into Wednesday.

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.
