Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 1205 PM EDT Thu Aug 13 2020

SYNOPSIS. A front will slowly sag southward through Saturday as high pressure builds across eastern Canada. Several waves of low pressure will move along this boundary, keeping unsettled weather across the area. An area of low pressure is forecast to lift northward across the area Sunday into Monday. A cold front may stall to our south and offshore for much of next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. An update issued just before noon to adjust POPS and weather grids to keep up with recent radar trends. It appears that the slow moving convective activity is switching from the N and N central NJ areas (earlier) to Delmarva and srn NJ regions (now). While severe weather is of limited concern today, flash flooding and excessive rainfall are of more importance. The limited winds aloft and the very humid air mass will 'stick' around thru the day. Temperature and winds were also adjusted since the earlier convection across the north has suppressed temperatures there.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM FRIDAY/. The mid level impulse is forecast to pass off the coast this evening and the surface front should continue to drift farther to the south. As a result, we are expecting a decreasing chance of showers and thunderstorms in our region for tonight.

The sky will likely remain mostly cloudy with a light and variable wind. Low temperatures are expected to favor the upper 60s and lower 70s.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Periods of unsettled weather are expected to affect portions of the area for much of the long term period with several waves of low pressure moving along a couple of frontal boundaries near the area.

For Friday through Saturday, the frontal boundary will remain stalled to our south, while several waves of low pressure move along this boundary. Although the front and surface low pressure systems are forecast to remain to our south, southwest flow aloft will remain across the Mid-Atlantic region. Multiple short waves/vorticity impulses will move across the area within the southwest flow aloft, and with plenty of moisture across the area, as evident from PW values of 1.5-2.0+ inches, there will remain chances of showers and thunderstorms. The highest chances will be across the southern half of the area.

By Saturday night into Sunday, a stronger wave of low pressure is forecast to move along the stalled front, and pass near the area. There are differences between the guidance in where the low passes, with the GFS right on top of the area and the ECMWF closer to the coast. We will keep a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the forecast because regardless of the track of the low, we can expect precipitation. But a more inland track will bring more widespread rainfall to the area.

Behind the low Sunday night, moisture will likely remain across the area, and areas of fog and drizzle may develop across portions of the area.

The low will track to the northeast and across New England Monday into Monday night, while a cold front approaches the area from the west. Rain chances lower some Monday into Monday night, although they will not disappear completely.

For Tuesday into Wednesday, the front may stall to our south again, with several waves of low pressure moving along the boundary. Several short waves/vorticity impulses will likely move across the area within the southwest flow aloft, leading to a chance of showers and thunderstorms for portions of the area.

AVIATION /16Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

This afternoon . VFR except in scattered showers and tstms where IFR will prevail. Variable wind 4 to 8 knots. Medium to high confidence that showers and thunderstorms will occur, with low confidence on the timing.

Tonight . Local MVFR/IFR conditions in evening showers and thunderstorms, followed by low clouds and fog. Variable wind 4 to 8 knots. Medium confidence.

Outlook .

Friday . Generally VFR conditions expected with a chance of showers and thunderstorms, which may temporarily lead to lower conditions. East winds 5-10 knots.

Friday night . Conditions likely lower to MVFR overnight. East- northeast winds 5-10 knots or less.

Saturday-Sunday . An extended period of MVFR or IFR conditions possible. A chance of showers and thunderstorms, especially Saturday night into Sunday. East-northeast winds 5-10 knots.

Sunday night . MVFR or IFR conditions likely continue with fog and drizzle possible. East-northeast winds 5-10 knots, becoming light overnight.

Monday . MVFR conditions likely early, with possible improvement during the day. Northeast winds early, become southwest during the day 5-10 knots.

MARINE. The wind is expected to favor the east to south quadrant for today and tonight around 5 to 10 knots. Waves should be around 2 feet on our ocean waters, and less than 2 feet on Delaware Bay. Showers and thunderstorms are anticipated.

OUTLOOK .

Friday-Friday night . Conditions likely remain below advisory levels, although winds could gust around 20 knots.

Saturday-Sunday night . Seas likely build at least 5-6 feet due to increasing easterly flow. Winds could gust 25-30 knots Saturday into Saturday night.

Monday . Conditions likely lower below advisory levels through the day Monday.

Rip currents .

There is a low risk for the development of dangerous rip currents today with a light onshore wind and breaking waves of less than 2 feet. A medium period southeast swell is expected.

The low risk is forecast to continue on Friday. However, the risk could become locally moderate as a northeast wind of 10 to 15 MPH develops. Breaking waves should be around 2 feet with a medium period southeast to south swell.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Onshore flow will persist over the next several days, and it is expected to increase over the weekend. Astronomical tides will be increasing into the weekend as well as the new moon approaches next week. These factors will combine and increase the chance for minor coastal flooding with the Saturday and Sunday afternoon/evening high tides. While spotty minor coastal flooding is possible with the afternoon and evening high tide on Saturday, minor coastal flooding is more likely with the Sunday afternoon and evening high tide.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . Flash Flood Watch through this evening for PAZ070-071-101>106. NJ . Flash Flood Watch through this evening for NJZ009-010-012>027. DE .

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.
