Synopsis for the coastal waters from sandy hook nj to fenwick island de and for delaware bay.. Strong high pressure becomes prominent across southeast canada into the northeast united states this weekend as low pressure heads out to sea off the carolinas Sunday morning. That low probably becomes a large and strong storm in the western atlantic early next week, sending large long period swells over 7 feet westward into mid atlantic coastal waters. Eventually, a warm front will likely lift north of our area Wednesday.

High pressure extended from ontario and quebec down into the
eastern states early this morning. The high will build slowly to
the south and east over the weekend, as low pressure passes
across the southeastern states and off the carolina coast. The
high is expected to remain over the eastern states during the
early and middle parts of the new week as the strong low
meanders over the western north atlantic. A cold front
approaching from the west is forecast to arrive on Friday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
High pressure will remain well north of the area today.

Meanwhile, an area of low pressure aloft will be approaching the
area. This will result in a dry day, but some extra cloud cover
later today. It will remain below normal with regards to
temperatures, but not too bad a day. Highs will generally top
out in the mid upper 40s in most areas, with a few low 50s
possible. Winds will be from the north or northwest at 5 to 10

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Sunday
Fair weather will continue tonight. Skies will be mostly clear
overnight. Lows will range mostly in the mid upper 20s with
teens across the southern poconos and near freezing across metro
philadelphia. Winds will be light from the north or northeast.

Long term Sunday through Friday
A mid level low off CAPE cod on Sunday is forecast to pull a
trough over our region from north to south at that time. We have
indicated a low or slight chance of showers on Sunday. Any
showers are expected to be mainly in the form of rain. However,
light snow showers are possible in the morning, especially in
parts of eastern pennsylvania and northern new jersey.

A mid level ridge is forecast to build overhead from the west
during the period from Sunday night through Monday night. The
axis of the ridge should be overhead late on Tuesday. Meanwhile,
surface high pressure is expected to push into our region from
the north and northeast. Strong low pressure over the western
north atlantic should remain well to our east. As a result, we
are anticipating dry weather from Sunday night through Tuesday
night. Temperatures are forecast to be below normal until
Tuesday night when they should recover to near normal levels.

The mid level ridge is expected to slide to our east during the
second half of the work week. The surface high is forecast to
lose its influence over our weather as a cold front approaches
from the west. The cold front should arrive on Friday. We will
indicate a gradually increasing chance of showers as the front
nears. Also, temperatures will likely rise a bit above normal
late in the week in advance of the frontal boundary.

These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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 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.
