SYNOPSIS. A cold front will cross the region tonight in Saturday. High pressure will build into the area later Saturday through Monday before sliding to the south and offshore on Tuesday. Surface low pressure will dig down from Canada into the eastern states Tuesday into Wednesday. Another system may affect our area later in the week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/. 8 PM . Storms have weakened so we have cancelled the Severe Thunderstorms Watch. There will continue to be some showers and storms around this evening, mainly over eastern PA and northern NJ as a prefrontal trough and eventually a cold front move through. However instability is on the wane due to both the loss of daytime heating as well as earlier storms having worked over the atmosphere over much of eastern PA. A few storms could still contain gusty winds and heavy rain but are not expected to be severe at this point.

Cold front will not pass through the region until after sunrise Saturday, so it will remain warm and muggy overnight with lows mainly in the upper 60s.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM SATURDAY/. The cold front should be through most of the western and central zones early Saturday morning, and then should clear the far southern and eastern zones by midday. Showers taper off in the morning, and then skies clear out as high pressure builds in from the west.

Although overall it will not be much cooler on Saturday, it will turn noticeably dryer Saturday afternoon as the combination of a dryer airmass and afternoon mixing results in dewpoints falling into the 50s.

Highs will top off in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. Sunday will feature cooler temperatures and dry conditions as the upper trough swings through and we have a more northerly flow across the region. Surface high pressure across the midwest will build eastward through the day. It will certainly feel much cooler with highs only reaching into the 70s through much the area with some 60s in the higher elevations and along the immediate coast.

The high builds across the region through Monday, sinking southward and then off the southeast coast on Tuesday. With the high in control of the regions weather for Monday, expect another dry day with northwest winds and relatively cool temperatures, very similar to Sunday.

Low pressure over southern Canada will stretch to the southeast as it starts to deepen. Energy rotating through the mid levels will bring chances for rain and thunderstorms on Tuesday and Tuesday night and then more energy moving through will bring more chances again on Wednesday. The cold front associated with the low should move through the region on Wednesday, though some guidance has the front stalling in or near our area. With another system approaching from the west, the location of the boundary will be important as it will play a role in where the cooler vs warmer air will be over our region. The next approaching low will likely push the boundary northward as a warm front around Thursday, followed by a cold front Thursday evening/night. Lots of uncertainty with timing and track this far out but it certainly bears watching as get closer since strong warm air advection could place us in a good spot for convection to develop. Overall, this period looks to be fairly warm with highs back into the 80s.

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

Tonight . Mostly VFR overall, however, SHRA/TSRA this evening will result in MVFR or even IFR conditions should a SHRA/TSRA pass over a given terminal. Best chance for additional storms at this point will be near I-95 TAF sites and points N/W towards KRDG and KABE as a second area of showers/storms could still affect these latter 2 TAF sites later this evening. IFR CIGs may develop late tonight at KTTN/KMIV/KACY after rain ends. S/SW winds 10-15 kt with 20- 25 kt gusts, becoming less than 10 kt tonight, then gradually veering to the NW towards daybreak Saturday. Moderate confidence.

Saturday . VFR. NW winds less than 10 kt. High confidence.

Outlook .

Saturday night through Sunday night . VFR conditions expected. Light northwest winds Saturday night becoming around 5 to 10 knots with higher gusts on Sunday. High confidence.

Monday . Mainly VFR conditions expected. Northwest winds around 5 to 10 knots with gusts to 20 knots possible. Slight chance for showers north of KPHL. Moderate confidence.

Monday night and Tuesday . Mainly VFR conditions expected. Light winds Monday night will become west to southwest around 5 to 10 knots. Showers possible Tuesday afternoon/evening. Moderate confidence.

Wednesday . Mainly VFR conditions expected. Southwest to west winds around 5 to 10 knots. Showers and thunderstorms possible. Moderate confidence.

MARINE. Marginal Small Craft Advisory conditions will continue through tonight off the coast of New Jersey with wind gusts around 25 kt and seas on the ocean around 5 ft. Winds should diminish later tonight, and seas will subside to less than 5 ft Saturday morning. Sub- SCA conditions Saturday.

Showers and thunderstorms will move over the waters tonight, and may result in thunderstorm wind gusts in excess of 35 kt.

Outlook .

Saturday night through Monday . Sub-advisory conditions expected. West/southwest winds Saturday night becoming northwest around 10 to 20 knots. A few gusts near 25 knots are possible but confidence is not high that they will occur. Seas around 2 to 4 feet.

Tuesday through Wednesday . Sub-advisory conditions expected. Southwest winds around 10 to 20 knots. Seas around 2 to 4 feet.

Rip Currents .

There is a moderate risk for the development of dangerous and life threatening rip currents at the New Jersey and Delaware beaches into this evening. By Saturday, the risk may fall to low levels.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . None. NJ . None. DE . None. MD . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 6 AM EDT Saturday for ANZ450>453.

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.
