Synopsis for the coastal waters from sandy hook nj to fenwick island de and for delaware bay.. A cold front will move into the mid-atlantic today and linger across the area through the end of the week. Low pressure progressing through southeast canada on Friday will allow a cold front to sweep through the region on Saturday. High pressure will build into the northeast Sunday into the beginning of next week. Unsettled weather may return to the area by midweek.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 1242 AM EDT Thu Jun 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. A cold front will linger across the area through the end of the week. Low pressure progressing through southeast Canada on Friday will allow a cold front to sweep through the region on Saturday. High pressure will build into the Northeast Sunday into the beginning of next week. Unsettled weather may return to the area by midweek.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. Showers lingered in southern New Jersey and in extreme northeastern Pennsylvania around 12:30 AM. The last of the showers will continue to move eastward and they should be east of New Jersey by 2:00 AM.

The air will remain humid overnight, so patchy fog is possible, especially in those areas that received moderate to heavy rainfall on Wednesday.

Overnight low temperatures will favor the 60s in our region with a light and variable wind.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 AM FRIDAY/. The first half of Thursday will likely be fairly quiet, although a few showers will be possible through the morning hours as a couple of short wave/vorticity impulses move across the area. However, as we go into the afternoon hours and into the evening hours, instability will increase along and south of the stalled out frontal boundary, leading to an increase in shower and thunderstorm activity. The strongest of the short wave/vorticity impulses will move across the area late in the afternoon and early evening, from around around 4 pm - 10 pm, which is when PW values max out at 1.75- 2.00 inches. Meanwhile, lift maxes out during this time period as well. So there will be a threat for periods of moderate to heavy rainfall, especially along and south of the I-95 corridor. Rainfall amounts of the 3-6 hour window could range from 1-2 inches, with a few isolated 3 inch amounts. Where exactly this will occur is still uncertain, so we have held of on a flood watch at this time. While mid level winds are only 30-40 knots, and mid-level lapse rates are not overly steep at 6.0-6.5 C/km, there may be enough instability for an isolated thunderstorm to become severe with damaging winds and hail possible.

As the evening progresses, the main short wave/vorticity impulse will move to our northeast, and the instability will begin to wane. Therefore, the more widespread thunderstorm potential will diminish. However, with PWs remaining high and a couple of weak short waves/vorticity impulses moving across the area, showers will remain possible through the night.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Busy start to the medium-range forecast as a decaying front lingers across the northern Mid-Atlantic on Friday and a secondary front moves through the Northeast on Saturday. High pressure will cool us down and dry us out Sunday through Tuesday, but the weather looks to become more unsettled by the middle of next week.

The forecast for Friday remains tricky, as model guidance is quite variable with placement/timing of initiating mechanisms for convection during the day. However, what is clear is that a stalled (albeit slowly decaying) front will be in the region. Weak perturbations within midlevel quasi-zonal flow will be migrating through the area. The timing of these perturbations is in question, though, with the 06z GFS considerably slower than the 00z CMC, e.g. Nevertheless, the ambient environment combined with likely mesoscale lifting sources difficult to resolve at this time range suggest scattered convection will likely develop during the day. Fortunately, the PWs look somewhat lower than those anticipated for Thursday (around 1.5 inches expected), and deep-layer shear is quite low (around 20 kt or less). Main threat looks to be locally heavy rainfall and wet microbursts, but anticipated coverage of both at this stage looks fairly small. Will continue to monitor this potential, with the additional note that antecedent convection will play a primary role in the placement of the front and the resultant effects on convective location/evolution.

The model discrepancies increase for Saturday as a strong northern-stream shortwave trough digs through southeast Canada into the Northeast. An attendant cold front will move through the region during the day, but the timing of this is (once again) all over the place. The CMC looks considerably faster, but this seems somewhat questionable given the lack of close proximity to the upstream vort max. Suspect the slower timing of the GFS is more probable, which would mean another round of convection for the area during the afternoon/evening. There is a conditional risk of severe storms (depending on frontal placement) for the region, as MLCAPE > 1000 J/kg and deep-layer shear near/above 30 kt is a favorable parameter space for organized severe storms. PWs will once again be above 1.5 inches in advance of the front, so locally heavy rainfall is once again a threat.

Temperatures Friday and Saturday should be warm, with highs in the mid to upper 80s with dew points in the mid to upper 60s.

Colder/drier air moves into the region by Sunday and continues through Tuesday as a strong surface high builds into southeast Canada and the northeast U.S. Expect temperatures near or slightly below seasonal averages through this period.

The next system is expected to move into the area around the middle of next week. This system will likely ingest whatever remains of Cristobal, so this will obviously deserve some monitoring as time approaches. Of course, given how far out this is and how variable the guidance is by this point, confidence is quite low on details.

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

Overnight . Overall, VFR. Winds become W-NW at 5 kt or less. Some patchy fog may develop in the pre-dawn hours at sites where heavy rain fell.

Thursday-Thursday night . Generally VFR conditions expected. However, showers and thunderstorms will move into the terminals in the late afternoon and into the evening hours which will likely lead to periods of MVFR or IFR conditions. Winds are expected to be mostly west 5-10 knots outside of thunderstorms.

Outlook . Friday through Saturday . Primarily VFR conditions. However, multiple rounds of showers/storms possible with restrictions likely in their vicinity. South winds 5 to 15 kt gradually becoming west by Saturday. Some gusts to 20 kt possible during the day. Moderate confidence.

Saturday night and Sunday . Some lingering storms possible southeast of PHL Saturday evening. Otherwise, mainly VFR with northwest winds up to 10 kt Saturday night becoming 10 to 15 kt with higher gusts on Sunday. Moderate confidence.

MARINE. Tonight . Conditions will remain below SCA levels. Winds will gust around 20 knots however.

Thursday . Winds and waves will remain below advisory levels. However, showers and thunderstorms are expected which could lead to wind gusts greater than 35 knots late this afternoon and this evening.

Outlook .

Friday through Saturday night . Sub-advisory winds/seas expected. Storms possible, with strong/erratic winds and higher waves possible in their proximity. The best chances for convection are Friday night, and Saturday afternoon/night, though chances exist through the period.

Sunday . Sub-advisory winds/seas and fair conditions expected.

Rip currents . Light southwest flow Thursday morning will become south to southeast at 10-15 kt. Wave heights may increase slightly, and with the full moon on Friday, low tides will be lower than normal. There is a moderate risk for the development of dangerous and life threatening rip currents Thursday afternoon.

There is a low risk for Friday.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Some tide levels along the New Jersey coast touched minor thresholds with high tide this evening. With the upcoming full moon, and south winds increasing during the day, a Coastal Flood Advisory may be needed with the high tide Thursday evening.

CLIMATE. A record high temperature of 92 was set at Atlantic City NJ today. This breaks the old record of 91 set in 2010.

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