SYNOPSIS
High pressure builds across our area tonight then shifts offshore of New England during Sunday. As this high becomes situated to our east all of next week, a warm front lifts across our area Monday.
Building high pressure aloft all of next week will result in a prolonged stretch of hot conditions with little to no rain chances.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/
1025 mb high pressure currently centered over eastern Ontario will track across the Northeast tonight and off the New England coast Sunday. Wind flow around the high will result in a northerly flow through tonight, except for onshore seabreezes at the coastline. Winds become east to southeasterly on Sunday.
The high and associated subsidence will keep the sky mainly clear through Sunday.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/
Building heat and humidity, especially on Tuesday.

As a ridge aloft builds across the Southeast U.S. Sunday night into Monday, surface high pressure works its way farther off the New England coast. This ridge is also forecast to expand northward through Tuesday. A warm front should lift across our area during Monday with warm air advection on the increase. The cooler air mass hangs on Sunday night before turning much warmer and a little more humid during Monday. The warm front may be accompanied by some clouds, however limited moisture and not much forcing with the building ridge in place is expected to keep it precipitation-free.

As we go through Monday and Tuesday, the heat will be on as heights rise and therefore so do the temperatures aloft and at the surface.
A more southerly flow commences on the backside of surface high pressure and while this is not all that strong it will result in some cooler temperatures closer to the coast. This should be enhanced some by a sea/bay breeze. Temperatures Monday are forecast to be into the 80s across much of the region, with even some places getting to 90 degrees especially in the I-95 urban corridor. The dew points should lower some during peak heating and therefore it should not be all that humid. Even hotter conditions settle in for Tuesday as the ridge builds with some increased subsidence and thus warming aloft.
Nearly all areas away from the coast should get into the 90s and with higher dew points (mid to upper 60s) the heat indices are forecast to peak right near 100 degrees from about the I-95 corridor to the north and west. If the dew points remain high enough Tuesday night, many places may only have temperatures drop to near 70 degrees and therefore a much warmer and muggy night. Some record high temperatures could be challenged Tuesday afternoon. More below regarding the run of excessive heat.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
Summary...Excessive heat probable with little to no rain chances.

Synoptic Overview...A mid to upper level ridge is forecast to be centered over our area into Friday, however thereafter it may start to weaken and shift southward some. This maintains surface high pressure centered offshore although it does extend into our area before shifting southeast Friday into Saturday.

For Wednesday through Saturday...The upper air pattern that is forecast continues to point toward an extended period of heat across much of the area (high temperatures 90F+ degrees). An expansive and deep ridge is forecast to be centered across our region with some additional warming occurring aloft through Friday. The 850 mb temperature forecasts vary some among the model guidance, ranging roughly from +16C to +22C across our region, and this will have some impact on the surface air temperatures. The latter half of the week as of now look to be the hottest. The heat dome will maintain surface high pressure to our east with the surface flow more out of the south. This looks light and the moisture advection is not much, and therefore surface dew points should not be crazy with this heat.
In addition, many days of hot temperatures tends to lower the dew points some during peaking and this can be enhanced some by a dry to drying ground. There will also not he much relief at night especially in the urban corridor with lows dropping only into the 70s. The southerly flow however should keep the coastal areas noticeably cooler than inland, and if the flow is light enough especially under this ridge then a sea breeze many days could get farther inland during the later afternoon hours. The ridge also tends to limit cloud development and therefore rain especially given warm air aloft. As a result, convective chances are little to none.

The guidance overall showing the strong ridge starts to get pushed southward some and elongates more west to east Friday into Saturday as a trough in south-central Canada starts to flatten the northern side of the ridge. A Heat Advisory looks probable for many areas during this stretch as dew points should be low enough to keep heat indices below warning criteria, however the multi-day heat tends to have more impacts especially in urban centers when combined with less relief at night. Given the potential impacts of this heat, an Excessive Heat Watch was considered for much of the area especially for the urban corridor from Wilmington to Philadelphia to Trenton and the immediate surrounding zones. Given the main heat starting Tuesday and collaborating with our neighboring offices, opted to hold off on a Watch. We will go ahead though and issue briefings to our core partners. Also to note is the NWS Heat Risk graphics which show moderate to some areas of major heat-related impacts for much of our area.

The ridge should be flattening some on the north side Saturday which lowers the heights some and also the temperatures aloft. However despite this, the heat looks to certainly continue. There may also be some opportunity for a few showers or thunderstorms especially for our northern zones which will be closer to the Canadian trough.
Given the presence of the ridge though, PoPs are only in the 20-30 percent range mainly across the northern into the central parts of the region at this point.

AVIATION /02Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/
The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Tonight...VFR. Winds less than 5 knots, mainly out of the N to NNE. High confidence.

Sunday...VFR. East to Southeast winds increasing from around 5 knots early to around 10 knots in the afternoon. High confidence.

Outlook...

Sunday night through Thursday...VFR with no significant weather impacts anticipated.

MARINE
No headlines expected. N winds 10-15 kts this afternoon, becoming light and variable overnight. East to southeast winds 10 to 15 knots Sunday. Seas 2-4 feet.

Outlook...

Sunday night through Thursday...The conditions are anticipated to be below Small Craft Advisory criteria.

Rip Currents...

With lighter winds around 10 mph and lower waves of 1-2 feet on Sunday, there will be a LOW risk for the development of dangerous rip currents for both the New Jersey Shore and Delaware Beaches.

On Monday, winds will increase back to 10-15 mph but look to be out of the south. This wind direction would result in largely shore parallel winds except for the more south facing beaches in Cape May and Atlantic Counties. Additionally, waves in the surf zone are forecast to remain 1-2 feet with a short-medium period swell. Combining all these factors together, we are forecasting a LOW risk for the development of rip currents on Monday for now.
