SYNOPSIS
A slow moving front across eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey this morning will amble south towards Delmarva later today. High pressure builds back in tonight through Tuesday, before a series of frontal boundaries and low pressure systems affect the East coast Wednesday through early next weekend.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/
A few adjustments for the morning update. Added some clouds and slightly higher pops for the areas south of the front with the pace of the front a bit slower than fcsted. Overall, temps and winds looked good, so few updates there
From before

Heading into the daytime hours, conditions will be dry regionwide through the early afternoon with just scattered Ci/Ac clouds around.
This along with the lagging cold front will allow temperatures to rise into the mid-upper 70s for most locations to even low 80s in Delmarva (cooler at higher elevations and along the coast).
Ahead of the front, PWATs will also still be somewhat elevated, generally around 1 inch or so. These ingredients will provide the fuel for some more scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, though mainly limited to Delmarva and far South Jersey as the front will have begun to pass through the northern half of the area. CAM ensemble guidance indicates 400-600 J/kg of CAPE with less CIN compared to yesterday. However, the low-level winds are significantly weaker compared to yesterday. The result is a more typical setup for our region where stronger thunderstorms will be capable of producing 40-50 mph wind gusts and some small hail.
Isolated severe-level hail or straight-line wind gusts cannot be completely ruled out.

The SPC has made a subtle northward shift with the Day1 outlooks at 13Z (9AM) with the Slight risk bumping into SW corner of Delaware and the Marginal risk floating back across most of the rest of Delaware and SEmost NJ. General TSTMs are in for areas south of Belmar-Trenton (NJ) and Downingtown (PA).

Any showers and storms that do form later today will dissipate later this evening with the loss of daytime heating and increasing subsidence as high pressure begins to build into the region. Thus, the remainder of Monday night and Tuesday will be dry. Temperatures will fall into the upper 40s to low 50s Monday night before rebounding into the upper 60s to low 70s on Tuesday.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/
In the mid an upper levels, a short wave ridge is expected to slide eastward toward our region by Tuesday night. This should limit coverage of showers on Tuesday night despite a warm front approaching from the south.

By Wednesday however, the shortwave ridge will weakens the next closed low approaches from the west, leading to increasing chances for showers though the day. Thanks in large part to the warm front in the region, there will likely be a robust temperature inversion through the day, resulting in limited instability. Therefore, not expecting any thunderstorms at this time.

The closed low and a trailing cold front continues to approach the region Wednesday night into Thursday. Consequently, there are chances for widespread showers and thunderstorms in the Wednesday night/Thursday period. As far as thunderstorms, instability, especially surface based instability may remain limited through this period, so it is uncertain how widespread the coverage of storms will be. At this point, it appears as if we are likely to have widespread showers with some embedded thunderstorms, primarily late Wednesday night into Thursday morning, though there still remains quite a bit of uncertainty with the timing.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/
Tranquil weather should return again, albeit briefly, as the low departs our region Thursday night into Friday, before the next cold front approaches to start the weekend. At this point, the forecast has rain chances almost throughout this period (Friday night through Sunday), but it is unlikely to be a washout through the period, rather there remains uncertainty in the exact timing of the cold front. Once the cold front passes, we should have drying conditions.

AVIATION /14Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Monday...Prevailing VFR with fair weather for most terminals.
An afternoon shower possible for MIV/ACY which could briefly bring sub- VFR conditions. Mainly west-northwest winds around 10 kts with gusts up to 20 kts, decreasing to 5-10 kts overnight.
Moderate confidence.

Outlook...

Tuesday through Tuesday night...VFR expected.

Wednesday through Thursday...There is a good chance (50 to 60 percent) for sub VFR conditions at times due to stratus and showers.
The best chances for this look to be overnight Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

Thursday night and Friday...VFR likely, but a brief period of sub- VFR is possible (20%) especially Friday.

MARINE
Seas have decreased below 5 feet and therefore, the SCA was cancelled. Sub-SCA conditions will persist through the rest of the period into Monday night with lighter W to SW winds. Mostly fair weather conditions but some scattered showers or a thunderstorm are possible this afternoon and evening, particularly for Atlantic Coastal waters south of Great Egg Inlet and on the Delaware Bay.

Outlook...

Tuesday through Wednesday...winds and seas should stay below SCA criteria.

Wednesday night through Friday...SCA conditions are likely (60%) for at least a portion of this period and especially over our northern ocean zones as winds and seas build.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
PA...None.
NJ...None.
DE...None.
MD...None.
MARINE...None.
