Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 618 PM EST Thu Feb 20 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure located over the Upper Midwest will continue to slowly shift south and east over the next few days, with the center of the high finally passing off the Carolina coast on Sunday. Low pressure is expected to progress from the middle Mississippi River Valley on Monday to the northeastern states on Tuesday. Another area of low pressure may trail behind this low and impact the area towards the middle of next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/. No significant changes with the early evening update. The strong upper level jet is expected to slide to the east northeast, reaching the waters off Nova Scotia late tonight. The high clouds associated with the jet should follow it.

A cold front extended across southern New England, southeastern New York and northern Pennsylvania at mid afternoon. The boundary will sink southward and through the remainder of eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and northeastern Maryland this evening. The front is expected to be accompanied by some stratocumulus. Also, there could be scattered flurries in the elevated terrain of the Pocono Region and northern New Jersey early this evening.

Low pressure located off the South Carolina coast this afternoon will progress northeastward and farther out to sea. The northern edge of the precipitation shield associated with the low is anticipated to pass very near Sussex County, Delaware. However, any light rain or light snow that falls there should be inconsequential.

Clearing is forecast to begin working its way over our region from the northwest late tonight.

A north wind around 10 mph is expected for tonight. Temperatures should fall into the teens at most locations in our region.

SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM FRIDAY/. The axis of a mid level trough approaching from the northwest should pass overhead early on Friday morning. High pressure will continue to build from the middle of the country toward the East Coast.

We are expecting abundant sunshine for Friday along with a north to northwest wind 5 to 10 mph. Temperatures will be cold with afternoon readings mostly in the 30s. The forecast maximum temperatures are about 8 to 10 degrees below normal for February 21.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. Friday night through Sunday . The period begins with expansive high pressure over the central U.S. The high is expected to slowly drift southeast and weaken. At the upper levels, the forecast area will remain displaced from both the southern and northern jet streams which will further support the tranquil weather. Clear skies Friday night will give way to some high clouds across the north on Saturday and Sunday. Friday night should drop into the teens and 20s with the clear skies and light winds. Saturday will warm into the 40s and lower 50s. Saturday night should be 5 to 10 degrees warmer than Friday night. Sunday's highs will be in the mid 40s to mid 50s, which is about 10 degrees above normal.

Monday through Thursday . The high is expected to shift offshore on Monday. As a result, some moisture will return to the region as southerly flow increases. Guidance has slowed a bit with the arrival of the next storm system (with some lingering discrepancies among individual models), delaying it until Monday night or Tuesday. The thermal profiles do not support much chance of significant wintry precipitation with this system, so at the moment, we think this will be primarily a rain event with the most likely time for steady rain being Tuesday. There is the potential for a secondary system Wednesday into Thursday of next week but details are lacking at this time. Temperatures will likely be quite warm on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday with highs generally in the 50s (with some potential for 60s across the Delmarva), before cooling off a bit on Thursday behind the secondary system.

AVIATION /23Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Tonight . VFR ceilings. Decreasing cloud cover late tonight. Northwest wind 5 to 10 knots, becoming north around 10 knots this evening. Gusts of 15 to 20 knots are possible late tonight. High confidence.

Friday . VFR under a mostly clear sky. North to northwest wind 5 to 10 knots. High confidence.

Outlook . Friday night . VFR. Southwest wind 6 knots or less. High confidence.

Saturday . VFR. West wind around 10 knots. High confidence.

Saturday night . VFR. Southwest to west wind 6 knots or less. High confidence.

Sunday . VFR. Southwest wind 5 to 10 knots. High confidence.

Sunday night . VFR. Southwest wind 6 knots or less, becoming south toward morning. High confidence.

Monday . Mainly VFR. A slight chance of rain in the afternoon. South wind 5 to 10 knots. Medium confidence.

Monday night . MVFR likely. A chance of rain. South wind 5 to 10 knots. Medium confidence.

Tuesday . MVFR and IFR likely in rain. Southeast wind 5 to 10 knots. Medium confidence.

MARINE. A north wind 15 to 20 knots with gusts near 30 knots is expected to develop for late tonight into Friday morning. As a result, the Small Craft Advisory will remain in effect. Wind speeds are forecast to diminish gradually on Friday afternoon.

Due to the gusty winds and water temperatures between 43 and 45 F, there is a chance for light freezing spray overnight.

Outlook . Friday night through Sunday night . Sub-SCA conditions expected through the period with seas generally running 2-3 ft and gusts 20 kts or less.

Monday . Sub-SCA conditions expected with seas generally running 2-3 ft and gusts 10 kts or less.

Monday night and Tuesday . Sub-SCA conditions expected with seas generally running 3-4 ft and gusts 15 kts or less.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . None. NJ . None. DE . None. MD . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory from midnight tonight to 4 PM EST Friday for ANZ452>455. Small Craft Advisory from midnight tonight to noon EST Friday for ANZ430-431-450-451.

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.
