Synopsis
Deep low pressure will remain across the canadian maritimes today
while arctic high pressure builds towards the area. The high will
crest over the area Tuesday before heading out to sea. Low pressure
will move into the upper great lakes region Wednesday and then down
the saint lawrence valley Thursday. Its associated fronts will affect
the middle atlantic region both days. More high pressure will follow
for Friday and Saturday. A coastal storm may affect our weather next
Sunday and Monday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
1 pm update... We have allowed the wind chill advisory to expire
and converted the wind chill warning for carbon and monroe to an
advisory and extended it to 6 am Tuesday.

920 am update... No major changes to the forecast with this
update... Just some minor adjustments to hourly temperature and
sky cover grids based on latest obs and trends.

Previous discussion: bundle up! Today is the day we get the
full effect of the cold front that moved through yesterday. In
the wake of the cold front that moved through yesterday,
temperatures will be about 20 to 25 degrees below normal, with
highs today around 30 degrees lower than Sunday's highs.

As for winds, the pressure gradient will remain quite strong through
the day. However, pressure rises will be decreasing, and with it the
isallobaric component of the wind. Therefore, will continue with a
wind advisory only over the eastern coastal plains and portions of
delmarva. Further northwest, have kept the forecast just below wind
advisory criteria for now, but will be watching this closely through
the morning.

The combination of these temperatures and winds will mean very low
wind chills. Many locations will not see wind chills above 0 through
the day.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Tuesday
Pressure gradient finally begins to relax this evening, and with it,
we should see winds drop off significantly. Even so, with
temperatures in the single digits and winds still in the 10 to 20
mph range overnight, some locations could reach wind chill advisory
criteria for a second night in a row. The areas most at risk for
this are the southern poconos and northwestern nj. For now though,
will hold off on issuing a second wind chill advisory until the
current one expires.

Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
The arctic high pressure that has brought the cold temperatures will
be centered across the region Tuesday morning with the coldest air
already have passed thru the area. Gentle warm advection will begin
Tuesday with highs still below normal, but more than 10 degrees
milder than Monday. Winds chills will still be very cold in the
morning, but moderate by day's end. Fair weather is expected tue
and Tue night with increasing clouds Tue night. Temperatures tue
night will remain steady or slowly climb.

Precipitation will arrive across the area Wednesday as low pressure
moves into the upper great lakes area and its associated fronts
approach. By in large, precipitation will be rain for most areas.

The exception will be Wed morning and possibly into the early
afternoon where some mixed precip could occur for for the areas N w
of the delaware valley. Right now, we are calling for some light ice
accums across the southern poconos and northern nj, but the forecast
for precip type and amounts is rather low confid attm. We could
end up adding some snow for the poconos in future fcsts, but at
this time only a light accum would be expected. Any small delay
in arrival time would limit any mixed precip even occurring. We
will have a better handle on this p-type issue later today or
tonight. Warm air will continue to overspread all areas later
wed, so all rain is expected Wed afternoon and into Thursday. A
cold front will cross later Thu ending the precip, but bringing
in cooler temperatures again. We will continue with the likely
and categorical pops. QPF will again be in the 1 to 2 inch
range for the wed-thu period.

Mostly fair weather is expected from Thu night into the first half
of the weekend. More cold air will arrive behind the departing
system for Fri sat. This cold air will not be the deep arctic chill
that we are presently experiencing however. Readings will be 5 or so
degrees below normal Fri and perhaps 10-12 degrees below normal for
Saturday. Another short spell of cold air with moderating temps
and a renewed chc for precipitation for next Sunday and into
Monday. The latest 00z models are showing varying solutions, not
surprising. So mostly chc pops in the fcst for now. The ec cmc
are showing a coastal system for this period while the gfs
pushes the energy offshore with no development.

Aviation 18z Monday through Saturday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Today...VFR conditions. Gusty northwest winds continue with gusts up
to 40 kt possible at times at kacy and kmiv. At other TAF sites,
gusts up to 35 kt are possible.

Tonight...VFR conditions northwest winds should be gradually
diminishing to near or below 20 kt.

Outlook...

tue Tue night...VFR. Increasing clouds Tue night. Light winds.

Wed Wed night thu... Sub-vfr with lowering CIGS and rain with
some snow N W Wed morning. South winds around 10 knots.

Thu night... Improving conditions. Chance for snow N W rain S e.

Fri... MostlyVFR expected.

Marine
Gale force gusts are expected to continue at least into this
evening. Through the evening we should see winds begin to decrease
and by late this evening, winds may be below gale force on the
delaware bay. On the atlantic coastal waters, gale force gusts are
likely to continue for much of the night.

The first significant freezing spray event of the season is
ongoing. Moderate freezing spray occurring with even locally
heavy freezing spray. On the upper delaware bay, heavy freezing
spray has occurred and a warning continues. It is possible that
localized heavy freezing spray will occur in other locations
through the day. However, at this point, it is unlikely it will
be widespread. Therefore, continued with a freezing spray
advisory on the rest of the waters. Freezing spray is likely to
continue at least as long as gales continue.

Low water levels occurring into this evening. The low water
advisory continues for delaware bay, and based on the latest
forecast and trends the advisory has been expanded to all
areas. The ocean zones low tide this afternoon will get right
near -2.0 feet mean lower low water. On the tidal delaware
river, it looks to fall just short of criteria and therefore
will hold off for now.

Outlook..

Lowering winds and seas with high pressure for Tue and tue
night. Fair weather expected.

Wed-fri... SCA conditions expected much of the time. Rain wed-
thu. Fair Thu night and fri.

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.
