Synopsis
A weak area of low pressure will move across to the south of our
region tonight into early Tuesday. High pressure then builds into
the region on Tuesday and remains in control of the weather through
the remainder of the week. A cold front will approach from the west
on Friday, moving through the region Saturday night into Sunday.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
630 pm update: made some changes to pops based on radar trends,
mainly to bump them up to likely categorical between i-78 and
delaware bay. No other changes required at this time.

Previous discussion...

rain will continue to move into primarily central and southern
portions of the area this afternoon ahead of a positively-tilted mid-
lvl shortwave, the axis of which currently extends from western pa
into ohio kentucky. At the surface modest cyclogenesis is currently
occurring over southern virginia while surface high pressure over
the northern plains is in the process of moving eastward toward the
great lakes. Lift associated with the mid-lvl wave and surface low
will pivot southeastward late this afternoon into early this
evening, with drier air also filtering in from n-s as northerly flow
increases. Consequently expect precipitation to taper off from nw-se
after sunset with any lingering precipitation generally confined to
cape may county and far southern delaware by midnight. Precipitation
amounts will likely remain on the lighter side with most locations
seeing under a quarter inch, with lesser amounts north of
philadelphia (and little to no precipitation in the poconos and nw
nj).

Cloud cover will also clear out from nw-se overnight as the drier
air filters in, while northerly flow increases in response to the
building high to our NW and the deepening low to our se. Low
temperatures will be a bit tricky as the increases winds keep
temperatures from bottoming out despite the clearing skies and
general cold advection. That being said expect a fairly cool night
with sub-freezing lows (20s and teens possible in eastern pa NW nj)
over most of the area apart from the immediate coast and delmarva.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through 6 pm Tuesday
A cool and very dry (pwats around 0.15 inches) airmass will prevail
over the area Tuesday as high pressure, initially over the great
lakes, progresses eastward toward the area. Highs will generally run
about 10 degrees below normal, translating to highs in the mid to
upper 40s (outside of the poconos where temperatures will MAX out in
the 30s). Northerly winds will likely be somewhat breezy early in
the day (particularly near the coast) however these may relax
somewhat as the sfc.Low over the atlantic moves further out to sea
(although this may be cancelled out by increased mixing in the
afternoon).

Long term Tuesday night through Monday
Tuesday night through Friday... High pressure will be in control of
our weather through the bulk of the week. We should have dry
conditions through the week and generally light winds, which should
result in good radiational cooling at night. High temperatures will
start off on the cool side (in the 40s) but as we go through the
week, they will moderate quite a bit and be pretty warm (into the
50s 60s) by the time we reach the weekend. A cold front to the west
gets hung up as it approaches the region on Friday and does not look
like it will make it through the area. Some pre-frontal showers may
develop, mainly across our northern and western areas on Friday.

Saturday and Sunday... The next low pressure system is slated to move
through the region over the weekend. Warming continues out ahead of
the boundary and while we current forecast temps into the 70s, it is
not unheard of the airmass warming more than expected and
temperatures could start to reach into the mid to upper 70s. Once
the front moves through, temperatures should cool off a bit and
highs on Sunday will remain in the 50s to 60s across the forecast
area. Precipitation will start to move into the region from the west
and gradually overspread the area as the front advances into the
area. One item to consider is that there may be enough instability
around to initiate thunderstorms before the front arrives and then
precipitation will continue as the front moves through. The models
have not been handling this feature well over the past few days and
have slowed it down and then sped it up. Will need to see how things
unfold to get a better idea on the timing of the front in our area.

Monday... High pressure will return for Monday and will bring a
return to dry conditions across the forecast area. With the high
remaining more over the area, we may keep more of a north northwest
component to the wind which will cool us off any more and keep
temperatures in the 40s to 50s for highs.

Aviation 00z Tuesday through Saturday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg, kilg,
kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Tonight... MVFR conditions will be possible at times into the early
evening in rain with the heaviest precipitation expected south of
abe ttn. CIGS lift scatter out from nw-se overnight. N NE winds
around 10 knots expected.

Tuesday... VFR conditions prevailing under clear skies. N NE winds
around 10-15 kts, with some gustiness possible, particularly at
acy.

Outlook...

Tuesday...VFR conditions expected. North to northeast winds around
10 to 15 knots with gusts up to 25 knots possible.

Wednesday...VFR conditions expected. East to southeast winds around
10 knots or less on Wednesday.

Thursday through Friday...VFR conditions expected. Southerly winds
around 10 knots or less on Thursday, becoming more southwest on
Friday.

Saturday... MainlyVFR conditions expected. South winds around 10 to
15 knots with higher gusts possible. Slight chance of some rain
showers, mainly towards the afternoon.

Marine
Sca conditions will likely develop overnight into early Tuesday
morning over all areas apart from upper delaware bay (where winds
will be marginal) as northeasterly winds increase (gusts to around
30 knots) and seas build from s-n. Winds and seas will begin to
subside from n-s on Tuesday afternoon although seas >= 5 ft. Will
likely maintain themselves over the southern ocean zones.

Outlook...

Tuesday night through Wednesday... Small craft advisory conditions,
mainly due to seas around 5 to 7 feet. Seas will start to diminish
late Tuesday night through Wednesday from north to south. Some gusts
near 25 knots overnight.

Wednesday night through Friday... Sub-small craft advisory conditions
expected on the area waters.

Saturday... Southerly winds increase with 25 knot gusts possible.

Seas may start to near 5 feet later Saturday.

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.
