Synopsis for the coastal waters from sandy hook nj to fenwick island de and for delaware bay.. High pressure will build into the area today into Wednesday bringing dry and pleasant weather. A warm front will pass through the area Wednesday night with a cold front arriving Thursday night into Friday morning. High pressure will again be nearby the area Friday and into Saturday. A cold front will likely cross the region late Saturday into early Sunday potentially stalling just our south towards the start of next week.

Synopsis
High pressure will build into the area today into Wednesday
bringing dry and pleasant weather. A warm front will pass
through the area Wednesday night with a cold front arriving
Thursday night into Friday morning. High pressure will again be
nearby the area Friday and into Saturday. A cold front will
likely cross the region late Saturday into early Sunday
potentially stalling just our south towards the start of next
week.

Near term through tonight
Yesterday afternoon, dewpoints topped out in the 60s to around
70 degrees. This morning they are in the upper 30s and 40s. So
after temperatures in the mid 80s to near 90 yesterday with said
dewpoints, today will feel almost september-like. Highs will be
about 15 degrees cooler with a stiff NW breeze.

Previous discussion...

northwesterly flow today as cooler and drier air continues to
filter into the region behind the cold frontal passage last
night. It will be breezy this afternoon with gusts potentially
reaching 20 mph at times. Dew points will continue drop into
the low 40s, to even upper 30s across the poconos and northern
new jersey. Overall, dry weather today with sunny skies.

Temperatures will be noticeably cooler with highs in the low 70s and
upper 60s to the north, just a few degrees below average for this
time of year. These temperatures combined with the lower humidity
will provide a refreshing, perhaps even fall feel to the air.

Short term Wednesday
Winds will begin to taper down tonight as northwesterly flow aloft
moves further offshore to the east. Lows will drop into the low 50s
to 40s across the southern poconos and northwest new jersey under
clear skies.

We continue to sit between low pressure systems to our east and west
and high pressure centered just to the north over quebec. Another
nice and sunny day with highs a few degrees warmer and right near
where we should be this time of year in the mid 70s throughout most
of the cwa. It will continue to feel comfortable with relative
humidity values sitting near 50 percent. Winds will be on the
lighter side as well.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
Synoptic overview... The large-scale pattern will continue to
be characterized by broad troughing in western north america and
ridging over the southeast. Any active weather for our area
during this period will largely be initiated by waves rounding
the ridge axis to our north (and the ridge flattening in
response). As mentioned in the previous discussion, timing
these waves and predicting their intensity is difficult since
they will be highly influenced by convection generated upstream
of the area (this synoptic pattern tends to result in
significant convective activity over the plains).

A sfc.Low should pass well to our north on Thursday pushing a
warm front through early Thursday and then a cold front Thursday
night into Friday morning. Weak high pressure attempts to build
just north of the area Friday into early Saturday before the
Thursday-early Friday pattern more or less repeats itself
Saturday into early Sunday. By early next week the pattern
becomes less clear with a stalled front possibly coming into
play along with a stronger northern shortwave.

Dailies...

Wednesday night-Thursday night... A warm front will move into
the area Wednesday night, likely generating some scattered
showers over the area into Thursday morning. Precipitation
intensity coverage will be influenced by upstream convection and
associated vorticity generation. Currently think the GFS is a
bit too bullish as it typically is in these precursor high
pressure situations so retained only chc. Pops and left qpf
generally under a tenth of an inch. There is some thunder
potential particularly over eastern pa and NW nj where some
elevated instability will be present.

After a warm day Thursday (maxes generally upper 70s to low 80s)
expect at least scattered convection to develop in an unstable
atmosphere (sbcape generally around 500-1000 j kg ahead of the
approaching cold front. Similar to the am precipitation
intensity coverage is uncertain but can't rule out some heavier
storms if shortwave energy can interact with ample moisture and
modest instability.

Friday... We will dry out behind the front on Friday, as high
pressure attempts to establish itself to our nw. Despite the
earlier front being classified a "cold" front maxes will
generally be similar to Thursday or even slightly warmer
(although we should be cooler Friday night than Thursday night
given the drier airmass and less cloud cover).

Saturday... The daytime period on Saturday looks dry, as retreating
high pressure should still lend us protection for most of the
day. There will be a chance of showers and thunderstorms later
in the day as another low tracks north of the area out of the
plains. Temperatures will be similar to previous days outside of
the coast which will likely run a bit cooler as onshore flow
develops in response to high pressure to our east.

Sunday-Monday... Guidance currently indicates another weak (from
a thermal standpoint) cold front passes through late Saturday
into early Sunday. Temperatures will likely warm several
degrees relative to Saturday as a more westerly-northwesterly
flow develops. Forecasting sensible weather becomes more
challenging as the aforementioned boundary may stall just south
of the area into Monday, and a more amplified shortwave digging
in from canada may provide better dynamic lift than was
associated with the earlier systems. That being said ensembles
are not particularly bullish about this wave breaking down the
eastern ridge significantly so will need to wait and see.

Aviation 16z Tuesday through Saturday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Today...VFR. Sct045 for ttn, rdg, and abe this morning, but
these should clear by 14z. Northwest winds 10-15 knots with
gusts to 25 knots. High confidence.

Tonight... VFR. Northwest winds 5 to 10 knots, with gusts of 10-12
knots. High confidence.

Wednesday... VFR. Northwest winds 5 to 10 knots. High
confidence.

Outlook...

Wednesday night... MainlyVFR although some showers and
localized MVFR conditions will be possible. Winds light and
variable.

Thursday-Thursday night... Most of the daytime Thursday should be
vfr with southwest winds 5-10 kts. Showers and thunderstorms
possible Thursday evening into the overnight with winds
gradually shifting to the northwest overnight.

Friday-Saturday... VFR expected with cloud cover increasing by
Saturday pm. Initially northerly winds Friday will veer to
southerly southeasterly by Saturday afternoon.

Marine
Nw winds will diminish to 10 to 15 kt with gusts up to 20 kt this
afternoon. Buoy 44025, 30 nm south of islip, has been reporting 5
foot seas, but is expected to the trend toward 3 to 4 ft for the
remainder of today. The small craft advisory will be allowed to
expire at noon.

Previous discussion...

with this morning update, I will issue a SCA from sandy hook
down to little egg. Gradient behind last night's front is best
across this area. Northwest winds will gust up to 25 kt and seas
will build up to 5 feet as you work further offshore and away
from the protection of land. It will be short-fused only up to
noon.

Previous discussion...

today... Sub SCA conditions expected with northwesterly winds 15 to
20 knots. Gusts to 20 to 25 knots possible. Seas 2 to 4 feet.

Tonight... Sub SCA conditions expected with northwesterly winds 10 to
15 knots. Seas 1 to 3 feet.

Wednesday... Sub SCA conditions expected with northwesterly winds 10
to 15 knots and gusts to 20 knots in the morning, subsiding to 5
knots or less in the afternoon. Seas 1 to 2 feet.

Outlook...

Wednesday night-Friday... Winds and seas are expected to remain
below SCA criteria.

Rip currents...

a northwest wind with little to no sea breeze expected should
result in a low risk.

Equipment
The kdix radar is back online. However, it will be in a test phase
through this afternoon. Intermittent outages are possible.

Phi watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Nj... None.

De... None.

Md... None.

Marine... None.
