SYNOPSIS
High pressure holds a dominate grasp over the region through the weekend. A warm front lifts through Monday, but more surface high pressure looks to control the region through at least the middle of the week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
With surface high pressure building in from the Great Lakes, resultant N-NW flow will be ushering a cool, dry airmass in place to start off the weekend. Afternoon high temperatures will only warm into the upper 70s to low 80s. Dew points will start the day off in the low 60s, but as we mix in drier air aloft during the afternoon, we will see dew points drop into a very comfortable range of upper 40s and low 50s! Overall a fantastic and sunny Saturday in place with a dry and cool Saturday night in store as well. Nighttime lows will cool rather well, with 50s across much of the region. Higher elevations across the Poconos, Lehigh Valley, and northern New Jersey could drop into the upper 40s while the urban corridor will likely stay in the low 60s.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/
Surface high pressure will look be centered over the northeastern CONUS for Sunday. With time, this surface high will migrate eastwards as a warm front from the southwest lifts northwards. While this warm front looks to cross through our region around the time frame of early Monday, the surface high pressure offshore looks to still hold influence over us into Tuesday.

Overall, a dry and mainly quiet forecast is on tap for the short term given surface high pressure in control. Highs mainly in the low to mid 80s anticipated for Sunday with the mid to upper 70s expected for areas near the coast and at higher elevations. The warm front posed to pass through early Monday will bring decent warm air advection to the region, ushering the start of higher temperatures for the week. Highs mainly in the upper 80s to low 90s anticipated for Monday. The warm front is not expected to bring any precipitation to the region.

A sea-breeze will likely develop on Sunday given the weak synoptic flow in the forecast. This sea-breeze could penetrate well in-land by the late afternoon into evening hours.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
Summary...Few changes to the long term. Hot but mainly dry forecast.

The synoptic pattern and evolution is nearly certain for the long term. An upper-level ridge over the eastern CONUS Monday will build to the north with time. By the later Tuesday time frame, the strong ridge will look to be centered directly over the northeastern CONUS and will likely stay in place for quite a bit. The ensembles suggest it is not until around the time frame of Thursday/Friday that the ridge and its associated axis will begin to break down and flatten out some.

We could see heights of 594-600 dam over us Tuesday into at least Thursday. At the surface level, high pressure centered offshore looks to largely control the region into the end of the week. Though some rounds of shortwave energy may pester the region for much of the week, any precipitation development should be largely suppressed given the pattern.

We are mainly looking at a dry forecast into the end of the week with very warm temperatures for each day. High temperatures at least in the 90s should be anticipated at this point for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. It is still a little too early to discuss details regarding any potential for heat headlines, but the potential will only grow with time as the week progresses. Tuesday looks to be first good chance for some headlines.

AVIATION /10Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Saturday...VFR. North to northwest winds 5-10 knots, increasing to 10-15 knots, diminishing some later in the afternoon and into the evening. High confidence.

Saturday Night...VFR. N to NNE winds 5 knots or less. High confidence.

Outlook...

Sunday through Wednesday...VFR with no significant weather.

MARINE
No headlines expected. NNW to N winds 10-15 kts will gradually veer NE to E during the afternoon, diminishing to 5-10 kts. Winds become more light and variable overnight around 5 kts. Seas 2-4 feet.

Outlook...

Sunday through Wednesday...Generally, no marine headlines expected.
A few gusts around 20 kts possible on Monday for all zones. ANZ450 may see seas grow to 5 feet on Monday; a short-fused SCA for the zone may be needed. Otherwise, fair weather.

Rip Currents...

Saturday, north to northeast winds will increase to 10-15 mph with gusts around 20 mph. With 3-4 foot waves offshore and an 8 second period, this will lead to 2-3 foot waves in the surf zone. As a result, there is a MODERATE risk for the development of dangerous rip currents for New Jersey and Delaware Beaches

With lighter winds and smaller waves on Sunday, there will be a LOW risk for the development of dangerous rip currents everywhere.
