SYNOPSIS
A cold front approaches the region from the northwest tonight, then moves through later Wednesday into Wednesday night before moving offshore. Surface high pressure builds in thereafter, holding influence over the region Thursday into Sunday.
Unsettled conditions could return late in the weekend into the beginning of next week thanks to the next low pressure system and associated fronts.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
As of 6:00PM: A broken line of showers and non-severe thunderstorms are making their way into the Poconos at this hour. A few showers are also making their way into the Eastern Shore of MD. A few rumbles of thunder and occasional gusty winds up to 40 mph will be possible. Elsewhere, mostly clear skies are ongoing. Any showers and thunderstorms will end fairly quickly after sunset with loss of diurnal heating, giving way to a tranquil night. Winds will remain elevated through sunset before diminishing rapidly after sunset. Lows tonight will be in the 50s to right around 60.

Dry to start Wednesday morning before the axis of a broad upper level trough shifts overhead in the afternoon, bringing showers and thunderstorms back into the forecast. Clearer skies earlier in the day will allow to strong daytime heating, but thanks to the fronts passing through the region on Tuesday, low-level moisture will be on the lower side (surface dewpoints in the mid 50s at best). In combination with high temperatures in the mid-upper 70s, only modest surface based CAPE will result (500-750 J/kg). Model soundings indicate that shear will also be on the lower side (30-35 kts) and unidirectional. Putting all the pieces together, a few stronger thunderstorms will be possible but severe potential remains overall low.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/
Cold front will continue to cross through the region during the first half of Wednesday night before moving offshore. Thereafter, surface high pressure will look to build in from the northwest with time. Though some shortwave energy may keep things slightly unsettled Thursday, surface high pressure will dominate the region through the rest of the short term.

Not too much to write home about with this forecast. WPC does not have our region outlooked for any excessive rainfall; SPC does not have our region outlooked for any severe weather. Chance of showers and thunderstorms will continue into Wednesday night thanks to the cold front and upper-level short wave continuing to pass through; PoPs diminishing with time. Slight chance of a few stray/isolated showers Thursday thanks to some lingering shortwave energy. Otherwise, with surface high pressure building in, expect high pressure to dominate Thursday, Thursday night, and Friday. Mostly clear skies can be anticipated Thursday onwards.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/
Ensembles and deterministic models support surface high pressure holding influence over the region Friday night into Sunday as it moves generally eastward with time. With surface high pressure possibly well offshore by later Sunday into Monday, next surface low pressure system and associated fronts should be invited to impact the region. Things look to become unsettled during the time frame of later Sunday into the beginning of next week.

Overall, expect mainly quiet conditions Friday night through Saturday night with things beginning to become unsettled again later Sunday into the beginning of the week. No PoP included in today's forecast through Saturday night. PoPs approach from the west Sunday; slight chance or chance PoPs Sunday afternoon onwards. Around average temperatures expected through the term.

AVIATION /00Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas...

Tonight...VFR. Some SCT-BKN CIGs early with a slight chance of a rain shower at KABE/KRDG until 02Z, otherwise, mostly clear elsewhere. W winds around 5-10 kt early, diminishing to 5 kt or less overnight. High confidence.

Wednesday...VFR conditions through the morning with mostly clear skies. Sub-VFR conditions possible in the afternoon with scattered showers and thunderstorms. As of now, confidence isn't high, so left sub-VFR CIGs out of TAFs. W-NW winds around 5-10 kt, locally higher in heavier showers/thunderstorms. Moderate confidence.

Outlook...

Wednesday night...Sub-VFR possible with showers and thunderstorms.

Thursday...Mainly VFR. Slight chance for isolated/stray showers, mainly in the afternoon.

Thursday night through Saturday night...VFR.

Sunday...Mainly VFR.

MARINE
Sub-SCA conditions through Wednesday. SW winds 10-15 kt gusting to 20 kt into this evening diminish to a light west flow around 5-10 kt overnight. Winds turn SSW around 10 kt again during the day Wednesday with gust up to 15 kt. Seas 2-4 feet Tuesday night become 2-3 feet Wednesday.

Outlook...

Wednesday night through Sunday...No marine headlines anticipated.
Showers and thunderstorms expected Wednesday night.

Rip Currents...

For Wednesday, A west to northwest wind 5-10 mph to start the morning is light enough for a sea breeze to develop by early afternoon. As a result, winds will shift from southerly around 10 mph before becoming light and variable at night. Given breaking waves of only near 2 feet with a medium period swell, there is a LOW risk for the development of dangerous rip currents for the New Jersey and Delaware beaches.

For Thursday, a north-northwest wind around 10 mph is forecast to become northeast and even easterly during the course of the day.
Despite this more onshore wind component developing, breaking waves of only about 2 feet with a medium period swell and therefore will continue a LOW risk for the development of dangerous rip currents at the New Jersey and Delaware beaches.
