SYNOPSIS
A weak system slides by to our north overnight, then a front settles into our area Sunday night before stalling in our vicinity through early next week. This front may dissipate Wednesday then a cold front should arrive later Thursday or Friday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/
The majority of showers have cleared the area (though a few are lingering, particularly near the Delaware Beaches). Temperatures fall into the mid to upper 60s. Could be a little patchy fog overnight as well, especially where a little rain fell.

Should be a mostly quiet Sunday as an upper level low well to the north moves out towards the North Atlantic. A weak cold front will approach from the northwest. This might be enough to spark off some isolated showers, and several CAMS along with some of the lower res models suggest the area to watch is right around the I-95 corridor, exactly where rain generally didn't fall on Saturday. Thus, have introduced some slight chance POPs for this area on Sunday. Otherwise, temperatures will be right around normal for mid-summer, with highs in the mid to upper 80s.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/
There may be a few scattered showers across the southernmost parts of the region Sunday night, but overall most areas will be dry Sunday night as the weak upper and surface ridge weaken.
It'll remain humid and seasonably mild with low temperatures in the upper 60s/low 70s. Can't rule out some rural fog overnight.

As we start the week, there are greater chances for showers and tstms both Mon/Tue as the front that has been the the south of the area this weekend starts to track northward. Upper energy arriving from the Midwest will ignite some showers/tstms as it moves by. We have high chance and low likely pops for much of the time and with the high PW across the area. Downpours and some localized flooding can't be ruled out. High temperatures will be near normal Mon/Tue with upper 70s/low 80s N/W and mid/upper 80s S/E.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/
The synoptic scale Bermuda High at the surface and aloft will stretch back across the Middle Atlantic area early/mid next week. This will promote an continuing increase in moisture for the area with normal or slightly above normal temps much of the time. The broad SW flow aloft will keep upper disturbances crossing through atop of the lower level heat and humidity.
Consequently, chances for showers and tstms exist for the entire period from Mon night into Wednesday. This highest pops for the period (Wednesday) occur as a stronger disturbance and surface low move across the Great Lakes up into southern Canada. A front attached will cross the area. We'll have Likely pops in most areas which will continue into the evening/overnight for the SE parts of the area. There are some differences with the models, so we do expect some timing chances as we get closer to the event.

Later next week, the upper trough over the Great Lakes continues to push east towards New England. It's influence across our region will be low/medium at best with some added synoptic scale lift and higher chances for showers and tstms.
We'll carry these higher pops (high chance/low likely) for Thursday and then decrease to pops back to lower chance for Friday. Drier air will arrive behind a front which will cross the area Late Thursday night. The front (as the one that crossed our region late last week) will not chance temperatures too much, so readings will remain near normal late next week.

AVIATION /06Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/
The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas...

Rest of Tonight...Prevailing VFR conditions expected to continue. Winds become light once again, but may favor a south- southwest direction, particularly for the I-95 terminals.
Wherever a little rain fell, there could be some reductions in mist late tonight, but low confidence on that. Moderate confidence overall.

Sunday...VFR. South/southwest winds around 5-10 kt at the South Jersey terminals, with west/northwest winds elsewhere around 5-10 kt.
High confidence in prevailing VFR, moderate confidence in wind direction. Could be an isolated shower, especially I-95 terminals, but have not included in TAF yet.

Outlook...

Sun night... Mostly VFR. Patchy rural fog possible.

Monday thru Thursday... VFR except with scattered showers/tstms which will bring lower CIGS/VSBYS at times. Timing of the lower conditions is mostly afternoon/early evening.

MARINE
No marine headlines expected on the waters. Winds around 5-10 kt with 2 to 3 foot seas. Some showers possible, mainly south of Little Egg Inlet.

Outlook...
More typical summertime weather with limited winds and seas (sub-SCA) and scattered showers/tstms. Storms favoring the late afternoon and evening hours. Higher winds and seas with tstms.

Rip Currents...

For Sunday...South-southeast winds around 5-10 mph with breaking waves around 1-2 feet and a 6 to 7 second period. This yields a LOW risk for the development of dangerous rip currents for both the Jersey Shore and Delaware Beaches.

For Monday...South-southeast winds around 10 mph with breaking waves around 1-3 feet and a 9 to 10 second period. Full Moon phase occurs on Monday as well. With onshore flow becoming a bit more perpendicular for southeasterly facing beaches, a longer period and a full moon, have opted to go with a MODERATE risk for rip currents for Atlantic/Cape May Counties. For Ocean, Monmouth and Delaware Beaches, continued with a LOW risk for dangerous rip currents.
