SYNOPSIS. High pressure slowly builds across the region today and through the weekend before exiting Sunday afternoon. Low pressure will track through the Mississippi Valley early in the week towards New England by Wednesday. A deeper and more intense low pressure system will develop by the middle of next week tracking into the Saint Lawrence Valley towards the end of the week and looks to impact the region.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. High pressure extending from the southern Great Plains to the Ohio River Valley this morning will continue to build to the east. We are anticipating an abundance of sunshine for today with two minor exceptions.

A weakening cloud streamer off Lake Ontario extended southward over parts of Monroe County around 9:00 AM. It should continue to dissipate as the northerly flow lessens during the balance of the morning. Also, there was a deck of stratocumulus off our coast. It was due to the cold northerly flow passing over the relatively warm ocean waters. That area of clouds should also begin to erode as the northerly flow decreases.

Today's high temperatures are expected to favor the middle and upper 30s in northeastern Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, southeastern Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley. Readings should not get above freezing in the elevated terrain of the Poconos and far northern New Jersey.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM SATURDAY/. Really not much change in the weather this evening as the center of high pressure tracks over the intersection of TN/GA/AL. With the high tracking just to the south anticipate light westerly flow and a better chance of the winds decoupling Friday night. Overnight lows should fall to the teens to low 20s.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. High pressure builds through the weekend leading to quiet weather under mostly clear skies. As the flow becomes more southern and western, the area will start to have a warming trend with highs increasing to above normal and increasing about 3-5 degrees each day. By Monday, anticipate temps in the low to mid 50s. We may see some high clouds filter through over the weekend but with low level (1000mb-700mb) RH's progs less than 30% I dont think it will amount to any sort of low or mid level clouds.

High pressure finally starts to break down Monday night as the center of the high drifts offshore. A weak upper level shortwave starts to track through the central plains with a low pressure system tracking through Missouri Monday afternoon. The low then tracks quickly to the north and east and ends up moving towards the Saint Lawrence Valley on Tuesday. This brings a warm front into the Mid Atlantic along with some modest rainfall. With surface temps in the mid to upper 40s there's almost a nil chance any wintry precip will fall over NJ or DelMarVa.

A stronger upper level trough will follow that low pressure system as a vort max tracks into the Carolinas with some decent 850mb FGEN. The low will undergo fairly rapid cyclogensis deepening from 1008mb Wednesday to 980mb centered over Lake Ontario. This should bring widespread precipitation to the region, which as of right now would be mostly rain in the warm sector. Time will tell for that system but on the surface the late week system looks significantly stronger than the early week system.

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.
