Synopsis
High pressure over the great lakes and ohio valley builds east
today, passes overhead tonight, then moves out to sea Sunday and
Sunday night. Several upper level disturbances will pass north
of the region Monday and Monday night, and then a cold front
passes through Wednesday night. High pressure builds to the
north to close out the week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
500 am update: clouds have stopped the cooling process, and
temperatures are now beginning to increase across much of the
area. Adjusted hourly temperatures considerably upward for the
next 4 hours (basically more of a persistence forecast) as
little or no additional cooling is expected to occur. Also
increased sky cover considerably this morning based on the
persistence of this low-cloud deck.

Previous discussion...

a strong vort MAX is moving offshore new england early this
morning, leaving the northern mid-atlantic in quasi-zonal
midlevel flow. A surface high to our south and west will provide
for westerly surface flow today. Fairly strong cold advection
in the low levels will continue today, so not expecting too much
of a warmup from yesterday. Statistical guidance has
temperatures about 2-6 degrees warmer than yesterday, in
general. I leaned toward the cooler guidance somewhat, mainly
because I am somewhat concerned it will be a little cloudier
than the model consensus suggests. The strength of the cold
advection near the surface is clearly allowing for the
development trapping of upstream stratocumulus, with models
poorly forecasting the southeastward expansion and oscillation
of the cloud deck. I expect this to continue to be the case
today. In addition, a dry weak cold front will be approaching
from the west, and this may be enough to curb stronger heating,
especially in the north west.

Cannot rule out a flurry or even a rain snow shower in the
northern CWA today, but model guidance is generally excluding
this as a risk. Given the nearly universal consensus on this,
considered this too low of a risk for inclusion in the forecast
at this time.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Sunday
The surface high to our west will build into the northeast
tonight, allowing the weak cold front to move through the region
during the period. Surface flow will become more northerly,
though it may decouple entirely as the surface ridge approaches.

Meanwhile, midlevel zonal flow will continue, and a weak vort
max passage during the evening will likely keep some amount of
cloudiness around, especially to areas north and west of the
urban corridor. Cannot completely rule out a flurry shower in
the poconos and vicinity this evening, though the threat looks
too low for forecast mention at this time. Otherwise, the CWA is
expected to be dry.

Given the infiltration of the surface high to our north and
west upstream of the weakening cold front passing through,
minimum temperatures will likely be somewhat lower than those
observed this morning, though the potential for considerable
cloudiness may impede this cooling somewhat. In general,
followed a consensus statistical blend.

Long term Sunday through Friday
High pressure over the area Sunday morning moves out to sea
during the day. The first of several weak clipper systems will
approach in the afternoon, and passes north of the area late
Sunday and Sunday night.

Thermal profiles have temperatures below freezing in the
southern poconos and far northern new jersey, where precip
should fall as snow. Temperatures will generally above freezing
from around i-78 to i-80, where precip will start out as rain,
then temps fall through the night, allowing for rain to mix with
some snow. QPF totals will be less than 1 10", with the bulk of
the QPF in carbon and monroe counties, so not expecting much in
the way of snowfall. Will cap pops at chance, mainly for the
northern half of the forecast area.

The second clipper system will pass through the region Monday
afternoon and Monday night. Again, temperatures will be cold
enough for all snow along and north of around i-78, and rain
south of that. QPF amounts will once again be light, generally
less than 2 10" inch, with the highest amounts in the southern
poconos. Accumulating snow possible, especially in the higher
elevations.

Surface high pressure passes through the region on Wednesday,
and then a cold front will pass through the region Wednesday
night and thanksgiving morning. An arctic airmass builds into
the region for the end of the week, as 850 mb temps will fall to
-12c in DELMARVA to -20c in the southern poconos.

High pressure builds east on Friday, and the airmass warms back
up a bit, as 850 mb temps warm back to 0 to +3c.

Aviation 10z Saturday through Wednesday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Today... MainlyVFR, though transient MVFR may occur at rdg abe
this morning. Bkn-ovc CIGS around 3000-5000 feet early this
morning may scatter out at times, especially from the philly
terminals southeastward, but a more considerable cloud deck most
of the day cannot be ruled out. Winds generally westerly around
10 kts. Moderate confidence.

Tonight... MainlyVFR, though some MVFR conditions may occur
from time to time, generally northwest of phl. Winds becoming
light variable. Moderate confidence.

Outlook...

Sunday-Tuesday... Periods of MVFR conditions possible with a chance
of showers. Snow possible at krdg abe at night.

Tuesday night-Wednesday...VFR conditions expected.

Marine
The small craft advisory has been allowed to expire for delaware
bay. Gusts remain near 25 kts on the atlantic waters this
morning, so the small craft advisory continues through 11 am.

However, west to northwest winds should diminish to 10 to 20
kts by this afternoon with seas lowering to 3 to 4 feet. Sub-
advisory conditions should continue tonight, with directions
becoming more northerly with time as a weak cold front moves
through the area. No precipitation is expected through the
period.

Outlook...

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

Tuesday night... Conditions may increase to near small craft
advisory levels.

Wednesday... Conditions expected to be below advisory levels.

Phi watches warnings advisories

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.
