Synopsis
High pressure over the area moves offshore tonight, then low
pressure will move into the region late tonight and pass through
the region Monday. High pressure builds back in from the north
and west on Tuesday, then moves into gulf of maine Tuesday
night. A complex area of low pressure will move through the
northeast Wednesday through Thursday. High pressure builds in
from the north and west to close out the week. Low pressure
impacts the area next weekend.

Near term until 6 am Monday morning
Update...

slowed precip timing in the grids to reflect latest radar
trends. Modest dew point depressions still exist across portions
of the area, especially across northern and central nj. Light
rain has begun to move into southern portions of nj as of 6:45
pm. Freezing rain is being reported across parts of maryland,
mostly between baltimore and the mason dixon line. This will
likely continue to move into our area within the next couple
hours from wilmington, de and points north. Temperatures will be
near to just above freezing at the surface across the philly
metro, thus, things may end up being more of a quick sleet and
light rain event. Temperatures still remain at or below freezing
across the lehigh valley through 1-2 am, thus snow is still
likely across these areas initially.

Previous discussion...

the latest winter storm will be affecting
our region mostly during the near term with low pressure moving
towards WRN pa as another low forms off the DELMARVA coast
overnight. Between these lows, there is plenty of moisture and
temperatures are marginal for either all rain or snow.

Complicating things is the temperates aloft which are not
strongly indicating any preferred p-type. We will mostly keep
things as they are, but also add chester and northern montgomery
county into the present winter weather advisory. It's possible
that these areas may also get some light -zr this evening.

Confidence in p-type along the edges of the advisory is not the
best, so it's good that the overall amounts will not be too high
and that the timing of the system is not during any exceedingly
busy commuting period.

The precipitation will arrive from SW to NE this evening and be
mostly rain across DELMARVA and SRN nj. A little sleet at onset
wounln't be surprising however. Across the delaware valley a
mix of sleet and rain is expected with a change to rain
overnight. The lehigh valley area will have some snow and sleet
and then some freezing rain overnight. The northern most areas
will have sleet and freezing rain with some snow possible. The
precipitation will end from W to E around dawn.

Lows tonight will drop into the mid upper 20s across the north
and remain in the low mid 30s across much of the rest of the
area. Winds will be mostly light from the SE or e, becoming w
towards dawn.

Short term 6 am Monday morning through 6 pm Monday
On Monday, the low pressure system, associated with the bad
weather Sunday night, will be offshore and moving away from our
region. Improving conditions will arrive during the morning with
the precipitation done (for ERN areas) by mid-morning. A drier
and gusty west wind will develop across the area with increasing
amounts of sunshine expected by afternoon. High temperatures
will be in the upper 40s low 50s S E and in the upper 30s to mid
40s across the southern poconos lehigh valley and NRN nj. Wind
gusts up to 30 mph expected to develop during the afternoon.

Long term Monday night through Sunday
High pressure over the northern plains states Monday evening
will slowly build to the south and east early in the new week,
and will be centered over new york state by Tuesday evening.

Meanwhile, a deep upper trough with several strong shortwaves
will move out of the rocky mountains and into the plains.

Surface low pressure will develop out ahead of that trough over
the gulf coast states, and will lift through the lower
mississippi valley and towards the tennessee valley by Wednesday
morning. The 1040 mb high over ny will slowly push east, and
overrunning precip will develop out ahead of the developing low
and lift into DELMARVA and the delaware valley by Wednesday
morning.

12z guidance seems to have slowed the onset of precip, with
precip not really making it into the southern and far western
portions of the area until closer to daybreak Wednesday, and
then precip will overspread the area from southwest to northeast
by midday Wednesday.

Low pressure redevelops over the mid-atlantic late Wednesday,
and passes over nj Wednesday night before moving out to sea on
Thursday.

Ptype issues will be abundant with this system. Precip starts
out as accumulating snow late Tuesday night through Wednesday
morning. As the afternoon progresses, the high moves towards
cape cod, allowing winds to shift to more of an easterly flow,
then more of a southeast flow. Although there should be good cad
initially, the position of this high allows for some warmer air
at both the surface and in the midlevels to lift in from the
south. Snow becomes a wintry mix for southern new jersey, the
delaware valley, including philly, and DELMARVA early Wednesday
afternoon, but snow continues for northern nj, the lehigh
valley, and the southern poconos through at least the daytime
hours Wednesday. Going through Wednesday evening, precip changes
to plain rain for delmarva, while precip becomes rain and sleet
for much of southern nj and southeast pa, eventually becoming
plain rain. For the northern half of the forecast area, as well
as far western zones, expecting a prolonged period of sleet and
freezing rain that will result in accumulating ice Wednesday
night. Will continue to monitor potential for at least winter
weather advisories with this system.

By Thursday morning, precip eventually becomes all rain before
tapering off behind the departing low.

High pressure then builds back in from the north and west. A
frontal boundary seems to set up across the mid-atlantic, and
several waves of low pressure will pass along this boundary,
likely staying south of the region through the end of the work
week.

The high moves overhead on Friday, then offshore for the
weekend. Another storm system may lift in from the south and
west next weekend.

Aviation 00z Monday through Friday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

This afternoon... Increasing clouds. Light E to SE winds.

Tonight... Lowering CIGS and then vsbys with precipitation
arriving 00 01z (west) and 02z 03z (east). P-type: rain expected
at kmiv kacy with mostly snow sleet freezing rain at kabe krdg.

The delaware valley will have mostly a mix of snow sleet
initially, then a change to rain overnight. Ifr CIGS expected
shortly after precip arrives and will remain through the night.

Winds E to SE at 5 to 10 knots.

Monday... The precipitation will be ending across the eastern
areas during the morning and improving CIGS and vsbys will
continue. Any ifr MVFR conditions will improve toVFR during the
morning as drier air arrives on a moderate west wind.VFR will
likely return to the delaware valley (and phl) around 13z 14z
time frame. TheVFR will remain for the rest of the day once it
arrives. Wind speeds will increase during the afternoon with
some g25 expected.

Outlook...

Monday night through Tuesday...VFR. NW winds 10 kt or less. High
confidence.

Tuesday night through Wednesday night...VFR will become MVFR
late Tuesday night and then become MVFR ifr as snow, rain, and a
wintry mix move through the terminals. Northeast to east winds
around 10 knots or less. Low confidence with respect to
precipitation type.

Thursday... MVFR or lower conditions in the morning, improving
toVFR late in the day. West to northwest winds around 10
knots. Moderate confidence.

Friday...VFR. N winds 5-10 kt.

Marine
Tonight... Sub-sca conditions with E to SE winds around 10-12
knots. Rain developing with snow possible across the northern
waters.

Monday... Sub-sca early then increasing west northwest winds and
building seas with SCA flag for the afternoon. Rains ending
during the morning then fair.

Outlook...

Monday night through Tuesday... SCA continues through Monday
night before diminishing by early Tuesday morning. Seas
generally around 2 to 4 feet, subsiding some through the night.

Wednesday through Wednesday night... East winds increasing to
15-20 kt. Vsby restrictions in snow, then a wintry mix, then
rain by Wednesday night. Seas possibly building to SCA levels
Wednesday night.

Thursday... Potential for SCA level seas on the ocean waters.

Otherwise, sub-sca conditions.

Friday... Sub-sca conditions.

Tides coastal flooding
A subtle onshore flow will continue through much of the night.

Tidal departures around this morning's high tide were generally
in the +0.7 to +0.9 foot range, a bit higher than originally
anticipated. The onshore flow and the decreasing atmospheric
pressure should cause those departures to increase by a few
tenths of a foot by Monday morning's high tide.

We are now anticipating some advisory level minor flooding in
coastal areas of new jersey and delaware on Monday morning. We
have issued a coastal flood advisory that is in effect from 5:00
am until 11:00 am.

It appears as though at least some spotty minor flooding may
occur with the morning high tides into the mid week period. We
will continue to monitor the water level trends.

The full moon occurs on Tuesday.
