Synopsis
A cold front will move slowly south across our region this evening
and offshore tonight. A broad high pressure system extending from
the great lakes into eastern canada will gradually build southeast
into our area through Wednesday. As this high slides offshore late
Wednesday, a warm front will move through our region on Thursday,
followed by another slow moving cold front on Friday. High pressure
is expected to make a return this weekend into the beginning of the
work week.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
An ef2 tornado has been confirmed near stevensville, maryland. A
preliminary public information statement (pns) has been issued. More
information will be added once the survey team returns to the office.

Convection is tricky for this evening as some areas have remained
clouded up today and are pretty stable, mainly across northern new
jersey. Areas that have seen some Sun have had the chance to
destabilize a bit and this may contribute to possibility of some
stronger storms developing in our area.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are developing to the west of
the area this afternoon. These storms will continue to move to the
east and into our area this afternoon and evening. Some of the
storms may be strong and with a marginal risk across much of the
area, some storms may become severe. Storms should move fairly
quickly with gusty winds and brief heavy rainfall.

Clouds will fill in tonight behind the frontal boundary and some
lingering showers may remain into the morning, mainly across the
northern parts of the forecast area. With clouds over the air, it
will again be mild but should feel cooler as some drier air starts
to make its way into our area. Lows will be in the mid to upper 60s
from i-78 and north and in the low to mid 70s to the south of
i-78.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through 6 pm Tuesday
Another cloudy day is expected across the forecast area. Easterly
flow will keep us cool and highs are expected to remain below
normal. Upper 60s to mid 70s across the poconos and NW new jersey
with upper 70s to mid 80s from about the i-78 corridor and points
south. With the boundary exiting the region, much needed drier air
will filter in and we should be free of the extra humid conditions
we have had lately.

Showers may linger through the morning hours but as high pressure
build into the region, expect dry conditions through the
afternoon.

Long term Tuesday night through Monday
One mid-level trough exits the east coast Tuesday night, with a
brief zonal flow and some short wave ridging for Wednesday, followed
by continued troughiness through the end of the long term period.

A frontal system in the Thursday thru Friday time frame features the
greatest chance of sensible weather, in terms of increased humidity,
and the chance for showers and thunderstorms. This front will slow
as it moves offshore, and stall to our south through the weekend
into early next week, as waves of low pressure traverse it. All of
the available guidance keeps our region dry in the Saturday thru
Monday period, but lingering cloudiness is possible, especially
south jersey into delmarva. In addition, if the guidance slows the
southward progress of this feature, this could result in a more
pessimistic forecast for the aforementioned area.

Showers and thunderstorms with heavy downpours and gusty winds are
possible Thursday into Friday. It's still too early to nail down the
spatial and temporal details, as the GFS is much more progressive
with the front compared to the euro, so there is low confidence due
to the uncertainty. In fact, the GFS event window would be Thursday
into Thursday night, with the euro window is centered on Friday.

Nevertheless, effective bulk shear values rise to near 40 knots,
while surface-based CAPE is in excess of 2.0 kj across portions of
the area. In addition, the front slows as it moves trough or area,
while precipitable water values rise to around 2.0 inches. These
indicators point to some potential for strong thunderstorms and
heavy rainfall in the Thursday and Friday period, and we have
mentioned this in the hazardous weather outlook.

Temperature-wise, slightly below normal temperatures on Wednesday
rebound to at or slightly above average from Thursday thru Friday.

Average to slightly below average temperatures are expected in the
post-frontal air mass on Saturday, with a moderation to near normal
in the Sunday thru Monday time frame. In fact, Thursday and Friday
are shaping up to be the warmest days, with temperatures well into
the 80s to near 90. The only exception may be closer to the coast,
where a prolonged onshore flow may develop over the weekend into
early next week, keeping temperatures cooler.

Finally, depending on the extent of the aforementioned onshore flow,
astronomical tides are much lower over the weekend into early next
week as we move away from the new moon. This should limit the
potential for coastal flooding.

Aviation 21z Monday through Saturday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Conditions areVFR at the terminals and are expected to remain so
through this evening. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will move
into the area from the west and impact the terminals as a cold
front starts to move through the region. Best timing for storms will
be between 21z-00z (krdg kabe) to 02z-05z (kmiv kacy). Expect ifr
conditions in any showers storms that move across the terminals,
otherwiseVFR will prevail.

Conditions will deteriorate further tonight once the rain has moved
out. Expect ceilings to start dropping to around 1500-2500 feet,
with some locations falling below 1000ft by late tonight early
Tuesday morning. Additionally, some fog may form overnight and
visibilities will drop, mainly after midnight. Winds will become
light and variable through the overnight period.

Tuesday... MVFR ifr conditions will prevail through much of the taf
period. Guidance shows that some clearing toVFR may occur by early
afternoon but confidence is low that things will clear out that
quickly. Easterly flow will remain at the terminals with winds
around 10 knots or less.

Outlook... .

There is some potential for MVFR in low clouds associated with
a frontal system from Thursday into Friday. This potential may
linger into Saturday in acy and miv as the southward progression
of the front slows. In addition, any showers or thunderstorms
during this time frame may briefly reduce ceilings and
visibility's to ifr. Otherwise,VFR for the remainder of the
period.

Marine
Small craft advisory for hazardous seas is in effect for our
northern new jersey coastal waters through 6pm. Seas are hovering
around 5 feet at buoy 44065 but the trend is for the seas to start
lowering as we head into this evening.

A boundary across the region has the winds blowing in different
directions across our areas waters. To the north of the boundary,
winds are northerly around 10 to 15 knots. To the south of the
boundary, winds are west to southwest around 10 knots. A cold front
will cross the region tonight and winds should become westerly
briefly before turning more north and then east on Tuesday.

There is another chance for some showers and thunderstorms later
this evening over the area waters, with locally higher seas and
gusty winds.

Outlook...

Wednesday through Saturday... A small craft advisory may be
needed on Thursday and Friday.

Rip currents...

a moderate risk for rip currents remains in effect through this
evening for the delaware and new jersey beaches.

A low risk of rip currents is currently expected for the
delaware and new jersey beaches on Tuesday. However, an
underlying longer period swell may raise the rip current risk to
moderate along the new jersey coast.

Tides coastal flooding
There is coastal flood advisory in effect for this evening's
high tide along the new jersey and delaware coasts. We do not
anticipate minor flooding in delaware bay.

While surface wind turned offshore during on Monday, it is
expected to become onshore again this evening, especially
along the new jersey coast. Conditions may be a bit marginal
for delaware.

Equipment
Dew point readings at kdov continue to measure too high
compared to surrounding locations and should be treated as
unrepresentative of the area.

Phi watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Nj... Coastal flood advisory from 9 pm this evening to 2 am edt
Tuesday for njz012>014-020-022>027.
