Synopsis
A ridge of high pressure at the surface and aloft will stay
locked in place over pennsylvania for the next 7 days. This
dominant weather feature will provide fair, warm and generally
dry weather throughout this entire period.

Near term until 6 am this morning
Skies remain mostly clear late this evening across all but
extreme eastern portions of central pa this evening. The western
extent of clouds continue to brush my SE zones and will keep
bkn- ovc skies going overnight. Have removed shower mentions for
the overnight as well. Clouds associated with a weakening
frontal boundary will dissipate over far western pa overnight,
and the low level flow becomes light and northerly later
tonight as jose weakens to a tropical storm and continues to
slowly drift off in a northeast direction. This will transition
us away from the stratus we saw this morning back to locally
dense valley fog for Wednesday morning. Min temps will be about
2-4f lower than early Tuesday over the northern half and similar
to Tuesday for the southern half - and notably milder than
normal.

Short term 6 am this morning through 6 pm Thursday
After we burn off the fog in the valleys, a spectacular
Wednesday is on tap with abundant sunshine and just a few flat
cu and thin cirrus to paint the otherwise azure blue sky. Could
be a couple of showers off to our SW in a very weak and eroding
trough, but only result for us will be potentially an increase
in cloud cover over the laurel highlands.

Max temps will once again range from the upper 70s across the
higher terrain of the north and west, to the lower 80s (and
maybe a few mid 80s) in the southeast.

Long term Thursday night through Tuesday
Overall pattern hasn't changed much, there is a good overall
consensus in the models through the second half of the work
week. For much of this period, a 590 dam closed 500 hpa high
will drift slowly out of the midwest states, and become centered
over western pa by late this weekend through early next week.

The GEFS forecasts showed this feature as a closed 5880 m ridge
over us with near +2 sigma above normal heights which will
translate to well above normal temperatures. High temps from
Wednesday and through the weekend will be 10-15f above normal
with little or no chance of rain through at least Monday.

Lows early each morning will be consistently in the mid and
upper 50s across the northern and western mtns, to lower 60s in
the larger SE metro areas.

Min temps may cool off slightly for this weekend thanks to deep
dry air and a light N to NW llvl flow of drier dewpoint air at
the sfc.

Aviation 06z Wednesday through Sunday
Goes-16 fog channel imagery shows widespread valley fog
confined to the west of the susquehanna river. The outer edge of
cloud shield associated with TS jose is drifting over the
southeast airfields and should preclude fog formation. Fog will
be locally dense with restrictions AOB airfield minimums. Expect
fog to dissipate through mid morning withVFR conditions this
afternoon and evening.

Outlook
Thu-sun... Patchy valley fog possible each morning. Otherwise
vfr with generally light winds and minimal clouds.

Climate
Astronomical fall autumnal equinox begins at 4:02 pm Friday
september 22, 2017.

Ctp watches warnings advisories
None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
