Synopsis
A warm front will continue to move away from the area this morning.

A cold front attached to low pressure across canada will move
through the region later today. High pressure will settle across the
area Monday then another disturbance will be across the area
Tuesday. An unsettled pattern is expected for the middle and end of
the upcoming week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
For the 930 am update: made some changes to pops based on
current satellite and radar trends. A line of storms continues
to progress east ahead of the cold front in eastern oh western
pa. Further, we are seeing convection initiate over western
md northern wv. This second area of convection may be
orographically enhanced. None the less, high resolution models
are not depicting the morning convection well.

Closer to home, the earlier stratus has mostly dissipated.

Consequently, we should be seeing temperatures rise quickly over
the next few hours. Temperature forecast is on track. Still
expecting just about everywhere to get to at least 80 and many
locations (particularly DELMARVA and the i-95 corridor) making a
run at 90.

As depicted in the 12z iad sounding and mentioned by the
previous shift, there is very dry air mostly above 800 mb. This
could have two implications. First, dew points, currently in the
60s will decrease as the mixing layer increases. There is some
question how deep the mixing layer will be, and there will be
some mid level moisture advection. However, assuming the mixing
layer gets to 850 mb, that should yield afternoon dew points in
the upper 50s or lower 60s (using the 12z iad sounding as a
starting point and allowing for additional moisture advection.

The second implication of the dry mid levels is that initially
(until we see significant moisture advection), this could serve
to enhance the cap and limit convective initiation. However,
i"m not sure it will be enough to weaken convection that is
already ongoing.

If the two clusters of storms mentioned above hold together,
they could arrive in our region as early as 18-20z (2-4 pm edt).

Additionally, as the capping erodes in our region we could see
isolated or scattered storms develop in our region.

As for the severe threats (which will continue into the evening
hours). The best convective parameter space (largely a function
of low-lvl moisture) will reside over the southern half of the
area (more or less philadelphia southward), where MLCAPE of
around 1500 j kg will combine with 40 kts or so of westerly
shear to create the potential for an organized cluster of storms
with damaging winds being the biggest threat (but hail is also
possible). Low-lvl shear will be particularly unimpressive (low-
lvl flow in general will be quite weak) so the tornado threat
is negligible.

Of note, some models (particularly the nam-nest) continue to
advertise MLCAPE well in excess of 2000 j kg over much of the
western part of the forecast area, which if realized would
result in a more widespread severe threat. Currently think this
is unlikely to occur as its pre-convective dewpoints seem too
high given westerly flow and mixing of drier air from aloft...

consequently think the hrrr instability will be closer to
reality.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Monday
The severe threat continues through 03 or 04z (11 pm or 12 am
edt) ahead of along the cold front and convectively enhanced
shortwave.

The front will move through this evening with modest drying
(from n-s behind it) this is not a particularly impressive front
from a thermal or kinematic perspective so drying will be
gradual and precipitation will likely continue into the
overnight. Additionally another shortwave is progged to approach
the area after midnight which may spark another round of
showers and even some thunderstorms over DELMARVA far southern
nj late tonight into early Monday morning. That being said think
the severe threat will wane with the loss of surface- based
instability after about 03-04z. Given abundant cloud cover and
high dewpoints, overnight mins will be warm (mid to upper 60s
outside of the far north where upper 50s lower 60s will be
possible)

Long term Monday through Saturday
A rather changeable pattern across the area this upcoming week with
alternating days of (mostly) dry weather and some weak systems which
will bring some sct showers and tstms. Right now, Mon Wed Fri are
probably going to be the days with the lowest pops. Although there
could be some morning showers across DELMARVA early mon. On wed, a
couple showers psbl far N w.

Tue will see low pressure and a front affecting the area, so showers
and some tstms are expected with the greatest pops (likely) across
the NRN areas. The models become somewhat varied by Thu fri, but the
possibility for some showers will be retained with the GFS and ec
showing some rains arriving late thu.

Some much above normal temperatures will arrive during the middle of
the week with upper 80s and low 90s in many areas. Up until then,
above normal readings (4 to 6 degrees above) will be over the area
mon tue. The much above normal will probably break late next week,
with readings back near normal for Fri sat.

Aviation 14z Sunday through Thursday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg, kilg,
kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Today...VFR conditions are expected to continue through 18z.

After 18z, there is a chance for tsra across the region. Any
storms will be capable of variable and gusty winds, and possibly
some hail. At this point, have a tempo group to include the
threat with the first potential round of storms, but additional
rounds of storms will be possible continuing into the tonight
period. Winds will generally be from the west around 10 kts with
occasional gusts to 15-20kts.

Tonight... Showers thunderstorms possible in the evening, however
vfr conditions under mid-lvl cloudiness expected to prevail. Winds
shifting more northerly overnight.

Outlook...

mon tue...VFR much of the time. A few showers early Monday and tue.

Wed thu...VFR wed. Sct showers later Thu with lower conditions
psbl.

Marine
Sub-sca conditions are expected Sunday into Sunday night with seas
generally around 3 feet and gusts up to around 15 kts. Thunderstorms
with gusty erratic winds will be possible late this afternoon into
this evening.

Outlook...

generally sub-sca thru the period. There is the possibility for
some SCA gusts later thu, but confid in this is low attm. Sct
showers and tstms Mon morning, Tue and thu.

Rip currents...

the risk for the formation of dangerous rip currents is low through
this evening. The low risk may continue into Monday.

Phi watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Nj... None.

De... None.

Md... None.
