Synopsis
A ridge of high pressure will drift off the mid atlantic coast
this evening. Low pressure lifting northeast across the great
lakes on Thursday will drag a strong cold front across
pennsylvania late Thursday. Cooler and dry weather will prevail
on Friday. The holiday weekend will bring warmer temperatures,
higher humidity and a renewed chance for showers and storms at
times.

Near term until 6 am this morning
Main weather issue tonight will be a southwesterly low level
jet and associated plume of anomalous pwats pushing into the
region from the west. Radar loop at 02z shows a broken line of
showers and a few lightning strikes along this feature across
eastern ohio into northwest pa. Latest operational model runs
and earlier ensemble guidance support a decent chance of showers
tonight, especially over northern pa, as the low level jet
presses east. Models do indicate some elevated instability later
tonight, as axis of low level jet arrives, so will maintain a
slight chance of thunder.

Mostly cloudy skies, a light southerly breeze and low level
moisture advection all point toward much a much milder night
than last night. Nbm min temperatures are mostly in the mid to
upper 50s.

Short term 6 am this morning through 6 pm Friday
Expect a lull in the convection early Thursday, as remnants
over low level jet exit southeast pa. Focus then shifts toward
potential severe weather ahead of potent shortwave and cold
front approaching from the grt lks. Partly sunny skies are
expected to result in moderate instability by afternoon in the
warm sector over central pa, while somewhat more stable air
hangs on east of advancing warm front over eastern pa.

The synoptic scale atmospheric signatures are favorable for
severe weather, including a relatively deep upper trough and
surface low over the grt lks and a strong, moist low level jet
maximum over pa. Damaging wind gusts appear the primary threat,
given the 50-60kt 700mb wind fields in the latest model output.

Strong 0-6km shear is supportive of supercells and the
combination of low LCL and high 0-1km shear is indicative of a
tornado threat, especially in the vicinity of surface warm front
over the eastern part of the forecast area.

The latest cams indicate the evolving severe weather threat
could begin as early as midday over the northwest mountains,
then propagate into the rest of the forecast area during the
afternoon.

Long term Friday night through Wednesday
Weighted the fcst to what we had at first with minor
adjustments to grids, then went across the grids again after
looking at the 12z ec.

Main changes then was to up the pops Saturday night into Sunday.

I did lower pops some more for Monday into tue. Wed is a mix of
the superblend and some minor adjustments.

Flow pattern remains abnormally fast and active.

Temperatures for the most part will be warmer than normal, but
not that abnormal for the first big holiday weekend of the warm
season.

Aviation 06z Thursday through Monday
Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms continue to move
through the northern half of the state overnight. Have vcts in
unv and ipt due to storms just inside the outer range ring of
these airports. WidespreadVFR can be expected overnight though
brief restrictions are possible with the dying area of showers
and thunderstorms that are traversing the region through 09z.

Enhanced weather impacts expected on Thursday from mid-
afternoon through the evening hours as strong to severe
thunderstorms impact the region.

Outlook
Thu...VFR into the afternoon, then strong thunderstorms
developing mid-afternoon lasting into Thu night.

Fri... Ceiling restrictions poss NW early, then mainlyVFR.

Sat... Restrictions in vicinity of showers thunderstorms. Tstms
more numerous north, scattered south.

Sun... Restrictions possible near scattered tstms, mainly west.

Monday... Still a chance of showers and storms.

Ctp watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
