Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 407 AM EST Tue Jan 28 2020

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure well northeast of the area and high pressure across the Plains states will continue to influence the weather today and tonight. A weak cold front will cross the area tonight and early Wednesday. Low pressure will move along the East Coast early this weekend and move away Sunday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. Its a quiet forecast through the rest of tonight and most of Today as persist mid level clouds remain in place. The clouds overnight have kept temps a bit more on the mild side however I'd expect a persistence forecast from yesterday to work out quite well as we'll see some breaks in the ceilings later today. Highs will be near normal in the low to mid 40s. As brief mid level ridging occurs we could see some steeper low level lapse rates and mixing to around 900mb which will cause gusty winds at times this afternoon to about 20 kts.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM WEDNESDAY/. No significant pattern change is expected for Tuesday night as high pressure continues to slowly bid. The forecast challenge will be whether the clouds develop and keep temps on the mild again tonight. BUFkit soundings show a tad less moisture so I've opted to show temps a bit more on the colder side than what happened this evening (Monday) however that only brings temps down to a degree or two of normal in the mid 20s.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Wednesday thru Friday . The high pressure system from the west will move across the Middle Atlantic region and Northeast states. Dry weather is anticipated with temperatures continuing near normal Wed and Fri and perhaps a few degrees below normal on Thu.

Fri night thru Sat night . Plenty of questions remain about the system approaching this weekend. An upper trough deepens across the Ohio Valley and low pressure at the sfc moves into the southern Appalachians. This low will further strengthen and move offshore of NJ/NY Sat night. The strength and track of the low is still quite a bit different amongst the GFS/EC/CMC. The 18Z/27 solution of the GFS showed a deep low moving near the coast. The 00Z GFS still has a deepening low near the coast, but not as intense as the earlier run. The EC/CMC are further away with the track and less consolidated with the low. We have upped the POPS for Sat with our fcst, p-type will be tricky too with the rain/snow line running across the interior of PA/NJ. Some of the GFS solutions have a light accum snow in the Lehigh Valley and NE/PA and nrn NJ. Too early to speculate if this will happen. Something we will continue to watch into the midweek.

Sunday/Monday . More high pressure begins to build over the area, so dry weather by-in-large is expected. No arctic air is expected, so temperatures will be a little above normal Sun and then well above normal next Monday.

AVIATION /09Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Tuesday . VFR with an decrease in cloud cover. Cigs will generally be 5-6kft however should become few-sct100 late in the day. Northwest wind 10 to 15 knots gusting near 20 knots. High confidence.

Tuesday Evening . VFR under mostly clear skies with NW winds generally 5-10 knots. High confidence.

Outlook . Wed thru Fri . Mostly VFR. Fri night/Sat . MVFR or IFR with low CIGS and rain/snow.

MARINE. A west to northwest flow will continue over the coastal waters through Tuesday evening. A SCA is in effect for the potential for some brief gusts up to 25 kts however the threat is quite marginal. With Buoy 44066 indicating seas of around 5 feet well offshore its plausible we could see some 5-6 foot waves in the 15-20 nm offshore range but anything closer to shore should be below 5 feet.

By mid afternoon anticipate any threat to small crafts to be over as winds and waves should remain less than SCA criteria.

Outlook . Wed thru Fri . sub-SCA with fair weather. Sat/Sat night . SCA developing with rain and fog possible.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . None. NJ . None. DE . None. MD . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until noon EST today for ANZ431-452>455.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
