SYNOPSIS. Surface high pressure over the Southeast states will slide offshore tonight through Sunday. A warm front ahead of developing low pressure lifts through the region Sunday night. Low pressure passes through the region Monday night through Tuesday, then meanders offshore through Wednesday. Another system could impact the region late next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/. A closed low centered near James Bay Canada will meander some through Sunday. A strong shortwave crossing our area this afternoon will then lift to our northeast this evening. This shortwave has amplified the southeastern portion of the larger upper-level trough, with even some hints of it taking on a negative tilt as it lifts to our northeast. While there is not a lot of moisture to work with ahead of this shortwave, large scale forcing for ascent is sufficient and therefore some showers are accompanying it. The coverage of showers has trended down some during the course of the day as the system enters our area, however enough showers are expected and therefore highest PoPs continued from about the I-78 corridor northward with these then decreasing with a southward extent.

The visible satellite imagery this afternoon shows the overall cloud pattern as turned more convective looking. Some subsidence in the wake of a weak shortwave this morning has resulted in some decent breaks in the clouds. This is helping to build more convective clouds and an 18z mesoanalysis indicated 100-200 J/Kg of surface-based CAPE is present from about the Philadelphia metro southward. This will lead to a few stronger but brief showers especially across portions of the central to southern zones into this evening. Radar trends this afternoon indicate this is indeed occurring, with some of the convection allowing models (CAMs) also supporting this. No thunder is expected however given the low-topped nature of the convective elements.

As we go through tonight, the southern portion of the eastern Canada closed low retreats northward some allowing a more zonal flow to occur. This will also take much of the shortwave energy to our north through tonight, with weak high pressure arriving. This should result in enough subsidence and drying to lessen the cloud cover through the night, especially for about the southern half of our area. This combined with little or no wind will result in colder temperatures. Portions of northwestern New Jersey to northeastern Pennsylvania should have temperatures drop into the upper to perhaps mid 30s by daybreak Sunday. While a touch of frost cannot be ruled out in those areas, given the setup and the rather patchy nature of it no headlines are needed. There may be patchy fog, particularly in some of the valleys of eastern Pennsylvania and northwestern Jersey. Given low confidence regarding the fog, kept the mention more limited for now.

For Sunday, the aforementioned closed low is forecast to become condensed as it weakens some just north of the Great Lakes. As this occurs, a shortwave trough is forecast to sharpen as it ejects out into the central Plains. This will result in increasing downstream low-level warm air advection along and south of a strengthening warm front. This warm front will make a run at our area during the afternoon, and the combination of the low-level warm air advection incoming from the southwest and an upper-level jet to our north should result in an increasing band of mid to high level clouds. Some overrunning light rain may near our far northwestern zones later in the afternoon as a result. The surface flow will veer to the southwest or south during the day, however it looks weak and therefore mixing is limited. High temperatures will be on the cooler side, especially across the northern areas with farther south locales getting close to average.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. Low pressure will intensify over northwest Missouri/southeast Iowa, and a warm front will extend out from that low and will lift north through the region. Rain will develop, mainly across the southern Poconos, Lehigh Valley, and northern New Jersey, in the evening, and that rain lifts north through early Monday morning.

Strong warm air advection will be underway on Monday with deep southerly flow. 850 mb temperatures will rise to +10C to +11C, and high temperatures will climb into the mid and upper 70s. A few locations could approach record highs.

Some showers will develop late as that low moves through the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. The quiet weather that has been in place will give way to to an active week.

As low pressure moves through the Ohio Valley Monday evening, models indicating a weak secondary low forming out ahead of it in the Mid- Atlantic area, and that secondary low will lift along the coast Monday night before merging with the primary low somewhere offshore. Strong mid-level shortwave energy will pass through the region associated with a broad closed upper low.

Although there is still some time to see how things develop, there are indications for a potential severe weather event with this system Monday night.

12Z/23 NAM indicating around 1000 J/kg MUCAPE values, a 40+ kt LLJ will be over New Jersey, and 0-6 km Bulk Shear 30-40 kt. NAM and GFS are also indicating helicity values of 100-200. Deep low-level moisture in place, as surface dew points will be in the 60s, resulting in PWATs around 1.5 inches. Heavy rain is possible. Will bump thunderstorm chances up from slight chance to chance for Monday night.

Low pressure will move off the New Jersey coast Tuesday morning. Showers taper off from west to east throughout the day. However, models indicating yet another area of low pressure over the western Atlantic, several hundred miles east of the Carolina coast. These two systems look to merge over the western Atlantic as a broad upper low moves over the Northeast. With this low working its way through the region, will keep at least chance PoPs in the forecast through Wednesday as scattered showers work their way across the region.

There may be a brief period of dry weather sometime Wednesday night into Thursday as a mid-level ridge builds across the Northeast.

Thereafter, another area of low pressure will approach for the end of the work week and possibly into the start of the weekend. However, there is much uncertainty among the models, so for now, will stick with the NBM for this time frame.

AVIATION /19Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Rest of this afternoon . VFR ceilings mainly between 4000-10000 feet. Some showers will be around with local and brief MVFR ceilings and/or visibilities possible especially. Light and variable winds overall. Moderate confidence.

Tonight . VFR with ceilings thinning out and any showers ending early. Localized fog possible overnight, mainly at a few of the rural terminals. Light and variable winds, becoming locally calm. Low confidence regarding fog development.

Sunday . Localized fog possible early, otherwise VFR with a ceiling around 10000 feet developing. Light and variable winds, becoming southwest or south near 5 knots. Moderate confidence.

Outlook .

Sunday night through Monday . Sub-VFR conditions possible in RA/BR Sunday night. VFR otherwise. S winds 5-10 kt Sunday night, increasing to 10-20 kt on Monday. Moderate confidence.

Monday night through Tuesday . Sub-VFR conditions with SHRA and scattered TSRA. LLWS possible Monday night. S winds 5-10 kt Monday night, becoming NW 10-15 kt with gusts up to 20 kt Tuesday afternoon. Low confidence.
