Synopsis
High pressure located in eastern ontario and southern quebec
this afternoon will continue to build to the south and east. The
air mass should continue to influence our weather into Tuesday.

A cold front is anticipated to approach from the west on
Wednesday and it is expected to pass through our region on
Thursday. A secondary cold front may arrive on Saturday.

Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
900 pm update: no major updates with this package. Adjusted
temps to match obs.

630 pm update: made a few adjustments based on the latest
guidance to the sky cover and wind forecast, particularly along
and south of i-95. Backed off on winds inland overnight as
diurnal cumulus is quickly dissipating; therefore, am expecting
the boundary layer to stabilize keeping winds mostly calm,
perhaps light and variable, inland. Uncertainty still exists
with regard to how far inland the low clouds will extend Sunday,
but backed off on the inland extent with this slightly during
the day. Also adjusted temp dewpoint grids slightly as well.

Previous discussion... Northeasterly winds Saturday afternoon
gusted over 20 mph close to the coast, and up to 15 mph further
inland. As mixing ends around sunset, and as the surface
pressure gradient relaxes just a bit, wind speeds are expected
to settle in the 5 to 10 mph range through the overnight hours.

However, the onshore flow is expected to continue as high
pressure centered over eastern canada continues its slow
eastward migration. Models suggest light precipitation will
eventually start falling over the near- coastal locations of the
cwa, as the lower portions of the atmosphere become saturated,
but this could be more of an indication of low clouds,
especially toward morning. If precipitation does indeed develop,
the coastal sections are the most susceptible, with lower
chances further and further inland. Will introduce low chc pops
closer to the coast, then slight chc pops toward the
philadelphia metro area. Adjustments may be needed as the event
unfolds. With air moving in from the ocean, temperatures during
the overnight hours are expected to dip into the low 50s in the
north, and in the low 60s south where a cloud cover is expected
to inhibit radiational cooling.

Short term 6 am Sunday morning through 6 pm Sunday
High pressure centered over nova scotia will continue its slow
eastward trek even as low pressure (with some tropical
influence), rides northeast along, then away from, the east
coast along a nearly stationary front just to our south.

Depending on the relative strength of these two systems, the
onshore flow may veer more to the east versus northeast. Wind
speeds will pick up again too, with gusts in the 15 to 20 mph
range possible, and even stronger toward the coast. Models
continue to indicate light precipitation (drizzle?) possible
into the delaware valley, but this may be too aggressive. Will
keep the higher pops closer to the coast, lower pops further
inland. High temperatures on Sunday are not expected to emerge
from the 70s, and any precipitation may make it cooler.

Long term Sunday night through Saturday
The axis of a high pressure ridge is forecast to remain to the
lee of the appalachians for Monday and Tuesday. The pattern will
maintain a northeast to east surface wind in our region. The
onshore flow creates a bit of uncertainty in determining the
amount of cloud cover and the potential for some light rain or
drizzle. Regardless, most of the period from Sunday night
through Tuesday should be precipitation-free and there will
likely be at least partial clearing at times. The early autumn
temperature preview is forecast to continue with daytime highs
in the 70s and lower 80s, and overnight lows in the 50s and
lower 60s.

The surface ridge is anticipated to lose its influence over our
weather on Tuesday night and Wednesday as a cold front
approaches from the west. The front is expected to arrive in our
region on Wednesday night before passing off the coast on
Thursday. We will mention a chance of showers and thunderstorms
for Wednesday and Wednesday night with some clearing in the
forecast for Thursday. Temperatures will likely return to more
typical readings for late august.

A mid level trough is expected to begin settling over the great
lakes and the northeastern states for the late week period into
the holiday weekend. A secondary cold front may arrive around
Saturday. However, moisture is forecast to be rather limited so
we are anticipating fair weather for Thursday, Friday and
Saturday.

Aviation 01z Sunday through Thursday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Tonight..MainlyVFR. Lowering clouds expected near the shore.

MVFR conditions or lower possible (acy miv) if light rain
and or drizzle forms toward morning. NE to E winds 5 to 10
knots.

Sunday...VFR to MVFR conditions expected at the inland taf
sites, but ifr conditions possible at miv and acy with low
clouds and possible light rain drizzle. E winds gusting up to 20
kt near the coast, and 10 to 15 kt inland.

Outlook...

Sunday night and Monday...VFR and MVFR ceilings are expected.

Northeast wind 6 to 12 knots.

Monday night and Tuesday... MainlyVFR. Northeast to east wind 5
to 10 knots.

Tuesday night... MainlyVFR. Variable wind 6 knots or less.

Wednesday... MainlyVFR. A chance of showers and thunderstorms.

South to southwest wind 5 to 10 knots.

Wednesday night... MainlyVFR. A chance of showers and
thunderstorms. Southwest to west wind 5 to 10 knots.

Thursday... MainlyVFR. West to northwest wind 5 to 10 knots.

Marine
Winds and seas touched SCA conditions at a few buoys this
afternoon. While winds may improve slightly overnight, a
persistent onshore flow should keep seas in the 5 foot range
along the coast. Then as winds pick up again on Sunday, seas and
winds are expected in the SCA range, both on the ocean and bay.

A SCA has therefore been hoisted for the ocean starting 6pm
this evening, and for the bay starting 6 am Sunday.

Outlook...

Sunday night and Monday... A small craft advisory is in effect
for a northeast wind 15 to 25 knots with gusts up to 30 knots.

Wave heights on our ocean waters will likely build to 5 to 8
feet.

Monday night... Northeast wind 10 to 20 knots with gusts up to
25 knots. Waves on our ocean waters are expected to be 5 to 7
feet.

Tuesday... Northeast wind 10 to 15 knots with gusts up to 20
knots. Waves on our ocean waters are expected to be 4 to 6 feet.

Tuesday night... Northeast wind 10 to 15 knots. Waves on our
ocean waters are expected to be 4 to 5 feet.

Wednesday through Thursday... No marine headlines are
anticipated.

Rip currents...

northeasterly winds in the 15 to 25 mph range and seas between
4 and 6 feet will result in a high risk of rip currents for the
nj shore on Sunday with a moderate risk of rip currents expected
for the delaware beaches.

This elevated rip current risk (either moderate or at times
high) is expected to persist until at least Tuesday as a
prolonged period of onshore flow and elevated seas looks likely.

Tides coastal flooding
A prolonged period of northeast to east flow will continue
through at least Tuesday. This persistent onshore fetch,
combined with increasing astronomical tides due to an
approaching new moon on Thursday, will likely lead to increasing
coastal water levels. Minor coastal flooding is possible
starting Sunday night over delaware bay and portions of the nj
shore. The better chances for minor coastal flooding are on
Monday and Tuesday.

Phi watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Nj... High rip current risk from 8 am edt Sunday through Sunday
evening for njz014-024>026.

De... None.

Md... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory until 6 pm edt Monday for anz450>455.

Small craft advisory from 6 am Sunday to 6 pm edt Monday for
anz430-431.
