Synopsis
High pressure over the area moves offshore tonight. Several
clipper systems will pass through the region starting Sunday
night through Tuesday. A cold front passes through on
thanksgiving, and then an arctic airmass builds south through
the end of the week. A storm system may impact the area next
weekend.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
9:30 am update: no major changes to the forecast at this time.

Band of light snow is over western ny and far northwestern pa.

That is expected to slowly make progress towards E central pa
through the day. It may reach the southern poconos by sunset,
but the chance is pretty low.

Previous discussion...

the northern mid-atlantic remains entrenched in west-southwest
midlevel flow and in the right entrance region of a zonal 250-mb
jet streak. Mid and high clouds are streaming eastward in this
flow regime as weak perturbations, per moisture-channel imagery,
progress quickly into and out of the area. To the north, a
strong vort MAX will dig into southeast canada this afternoon
and evening with a southward extension and amplification of
longwave troughing into the great lakes and adjacent areas. A
relatively strong midlevel vort MAX perturbation will approach
the area this afternoon and move through the region tonight.

In the meantime, a surface high across the appalachians early
this morning will move offshore today, which should allow
currently light variable winds to become light southeasterly
this afternoon. Low-level warm advection will commence as the
aforementioned vort MAX approaches the area, and cloud cover
will gradually lower increase through the period. Residual
stratocumulus will also persist and oscillate eastward westward
across the area, especially affecting north west portions of the
cwa.

Main forecast concern today is pops for the far northwest
(poconos and vicinity) with the approach of the vort max. In
general, the strongest ascent remains to our north and west
during the day, but models tend to keep the northwest CWA too
dry for too long with these clipper-like systems. I retained
mentionable pops beginning late this morning in the poconos and
spread them southeastward to adjacent areas of the lehigh valley
and northwest new jersey by evening. Expecting very light qpf,
merely a few hundredths of an inch. Temperatures will be cold
enough for most of the precipitation to be snow in the poconos,
with more of a mixture of rain and snow anticipated farther
southeast (should precipitation even occur in these areas).

Mos guidance did fairly well with maximum temperatures
yesterday but are in somewhat greater disagreement today.

Decided to use a blend of non-bias-corrected statistical
guidance today, as yesterday's forecast verification suffered
from the bias correction undercutting the raw values by a couple
degrees.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Monday
As the vort MAX approaches and moves through the region
tonight, light precipitation should increase in coverage to the
northwest of the urban corridor. With warm advection continuing
in advance of the perturbation, my suspicion is that most of the
precipitation will be liquid in the lehigh valley and northwest
new jersey, but temperatures will be marginal enough to keep a
risk of rain and snow for much of the night in these areas.

However, QPF will be light and temperatures marginal (likely
somewhat above freezing), so any accumulation of snow would be
minimal (or more likely, nonexistent). In the poconos, thermal
profiles (and surface temperatures) will be colder, so
accumulations up to an inch or so are possible.

How far the precipitation extends southeast into the CWA is a
question mark, with the NAM a little more aggressive than the
gfs in allowing precipitation to reach the northwest suburbs of
philly. High-resolution guidance is similarly in dispute.

Generally kept pops confined to along northwest of the fall line
with increasing chances for primarily rain as the precipitation
approaches the fall line.

With warm advection and considerable cloudiness, minimum
temperatures are expected to be somewhat warmer than those seen
this morning, especially in southern eastern areas where
conditions were clearer this morning. In general, temperatures
will be near or slightly below freezing north of i-80, in the
mid 30s to around 40 in areas to the south and away from the
coast, and in the middle 40s on the beaches.

Long term Monday through Saturday
A prolonged period of colder than normal temperatures on tap
for much of the new week, with an arctic airmass overspreading
the region for thanksgiving and the end of the week.

The first of 2 clipper systems will pass through the region on
Monday. Models are trending a bit dryer in terms of qpf, so not
expecting much more than a few hundredths of an inch. In terms
of ptype, temperatures will be cold enough to support snow
initially in the southern poconos and northern nj, and perhaps a
rain snow mix down into the lehigh valley. But there should be
rain by afternoon. Temperatures will warm into the upper
30s near 40 for southern poconos, and otherwise in the 40s and
50s elsewhere. This will also keep snow amounts down in northern
zones for the day on Monday.

The second clipper system approaches Monday night and passes
through the region during the day Tuesday. Temperatures should
be a bit colder behind the first system, and QPF will be a bit
higher, so there should be more in the way of snow, especially
for areas north of i-80. The rain snow line seems to set up
along i-78, so areas south of i-78 should get all rain. This may
be adjusted the closer we get to the event, however.

Weak high pressure passes through the region on Wednesday.

Another cold day with highs in the 30s and 40s.

A cold front then approaches Wednesday night and works its way
through the region on thanksgiving. A cold arctic airmass builds
south with 1000-500 mb thicknesses dropping to 510-515 dam in
the southern poconos and to 525-530 dam in delmarva. In
addition, 850 mb temps fall to around -19c in the southern
poconos and northern nj and to around -11c in delmarva. The high
temperature for the day will probably occur just after midnight
Wednesday night, and then temperatures fall thereafter, with
the exception for a brief rebound Thursday afternoon. Afternoon
temperatures will generally range from the teens in the southern
poconos to the 20s for most of the region, and the low 30s for
southern delmarva. At least it will be dry!
a bitterly cold night on tap for Thursday night with lows in
the teens and low 20s.

High pressure moves offshore on Friday, and return flow sets up
to allow for slightly warmer, yet still well below normal,
temperatures. Highs will generally top off in the 30s to low
40s.

From there, a storm system will be gearing up to impact the
region next weekend. Too soon to determine exact impacts, but
thermal profiles so far indicate wintry mix for northern zones
initially, then all rain. But stay tuned.

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

Today...VFR with partial to considerable cloudiness. Cigs
generally between 5-15 kft, though possibly a little lower than
that at times at rdg abe. Winds generally light and variable.

Moderate confidence.

Tonight... Conditions may deteriorate to sub-vfr north and west
of the philly terminals, and cannot rule out some showers at
rdg abe late. CIGS will approach MVFR at the philly terminals
late but are forecast to remain predominantlyVFR. Winds light
and variable. Low confidence.

Outlook...

Monday through Tuesday...VFR most of the time, but occasional
showers, with snow possible at krdg kabe, could result in MVFR or
lower CIGS vsbys from time to time.

Tuesday night through Thursday...VFR. Gusty N winds possible
Thursday.

Marine
Sub-advisory winds seas are expected through the period with
generally fair weather. Winds will switch from northeasterly
this morning to southeasterly this afternoon to southwesterly
tonight, with speeds 5 to 15 kts. Seas will primarily be near or
below 3 feet.

Outlook...

Monday through Tuesday... Generally sub-sca. Wind gusts to 20 kt
possible Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday night through Thursday... SCA conditions possible. Cold
on Thursday.

Phi watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Nj... None.

De... None.

Md... None.
