Synopsis
The strong coastal storm will continue to lift northward across
the coastal waters of new jersey overnight, then to our northeast
offshore of new england on Friday. High pressure is forecast to
build to our west on Saturday before weakening Saturday night
as a weak cold front moves across the area. High pressure builds
to our north Sunday, before another frontal system moves across
the area Sunday night. Yet another frontal system is possible
around Tuesday, with high pressure for the middle of the week.

Near term through today
The coastal storm was located off the delaware coast around
1:00 am. The low will continue to move up the coast, reaching
long island around daybreak. Meanwhile, a mid level low over the
upper ohio river valley will progress eastward. The feature is
anticipated to pass over eastern pennsylvania and northern new
jersey toward daybreak.

A dry slot out ahead of the mid level low has caused
precipitation rates to lessen in our region. The precipitation
was mainly in the form of light rain and drizzle in southeastern
pennsylvania, central and souther new jersey, delaware and
northeastern maryland, where temperatures were above freezing.

Meanwhile, freezing rain was common from the lehigh valley and
the poconos into northern new jersey.

We will continue to keep an eye on the area of precipitation
coincident with the mid level low. It may result in a parting
shot of snow showers and rain showers toward daybreak. Any
additional snow accumulation is expected to be limited at most
locations. However, some spots from the interstate 78 corridor
northward could pick up another inch or so.

Temperatures will continue to rise slowly overnight. Readings
at 1:00 am ranged from the 20s in the poconos to the 50s in
southern delaware. The gusty northeast wind is forecast to
become north, then northwest. The wind is expected to become
somewhat variable along the immediate coast as the surface low
passes.

Short term tonight through Sunday night
We move into a relatively quieter pattern following today's
coastal storm. Besides the passage of a weak cold front, the
weekend looks fairly tranquil, thankfully.

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 march across northern new england into
the canadian maritimes, 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.

Long term Monday through Friday
A second cold front is expected to reach our region Monday
afternoon. There may be some light snow and rain showers ahead
of 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 06z Friday through Tuesday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Overnight... Ifr conditions will persist across the TAF sites.

For acy miv ilg phl pne ttn rdg, rain and drizzle are expected.

Freezing rain will occur at abe with a little snow possible
there again toward daybreak. Winds will remain northeast 15-25
knots with gusts 25-35 knots backing to the north and northwest
and diminishing a bit toward morning. The wind direction may
become a bit variable around kmiv and kacy as low pressure
passes nearby after midnight.

Friday... Conditions will begin ifr as precipitation comes to an
end. A brief burst of rain snow showers is possible right
around daybreak. Uncertainty in their occurrence has kept
visibility restrictions out of the forecast. Ceilings are
expected to improve to MVFR through the morning, but may not
actually improve above MVFR. Acy and miv have the best
possibility to improve toVFR.

Outlook...

Friday night-Saturday night... MVFR conditions may occur
periodically.

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

Monday night-Tuesday... GenerallyVFR conditions expected,
although MVFR conditions may develop during the day Tuesday.

Marine
Storm warning remains in effect for all waters overnight. Winds
have already reached storm force for some areas. As the coastal
low moves over the area overnight, the winds may diminish for a
few hours, before increasing just before daybreak Friday, with
another surge of near storm force winds.

The storm warning will end at 7 am Friday, although it may
linger for a couple of hours past 7, but gale force winds will
continue through the day.

Outlook...

Friday night... Winds expected to diminish to small craft
advisory levels during the evening hours.

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

Tides coastal flooding
The storm surge has built around 3 feet along the central and
northern parts of the new jersey coast out ahead of the coastal
storm. As a result, we have issued a short fused coastal flood
advisory for the counties of ocean, monmouth and middlesex. We
are anticipating some minor flooding in those areas for the next
few hours. The advisory is in effect until 4:00 am.

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 and perhaps some major flooding.

This should be the only high tide cycle of concern. The wind is
forecast to be westerly for this afternoon's high tide,

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.
