SYNOPSIS
High pressure will briefly be in control through Sunday morning before an area of low pressure passes to the north of the region and drags a cold front and a line a storms across the Mid-Atlantic region Sunday night. High pressure builds back in Monday into Tuesday, before a series of frontal boundaries and low pressure systems affect the east coast Wednesday through Friday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/
As of 145am...Clear skies and light winds will continue through much of the night, albeit a few high clouds are anticipated to fan in from the north early this morning as a mid-level shortwave passes by to our north. No shower activity is expected with this wave, however. Temps will get down into the low to mid 40s, with higher elevations getting down into the upper 30s.
It will be just warm enough and breezy enough to prevent any frost from forming.

Sunday looks a bit more interesting, especially in the afternoon and evening. The entire area will get into the warm sector, with temperatures getting into the upper 60s and low to mid 70s. A cold front will approach from the northwest, with showers and thunderstorms developing out ahead of it, taking on a linear mode. The highest instability will be to our west, though with good forcing and relatively high shear, especially in the low-levels, some organized convection will likely make it into our area. The limiting factor is the instability over our region, roughly 300-500 J/KG of MUCAPE. The steepest lapse rates will also be well ahead of the better dynamics. Most of the CAM guidance also has the line of storms coming in right around sunset or even later.

Overall, everything really isn't lining up perfectly for a widespread severe event, and the thinking is that it will be more localized to northern New Jersey, the southern Poconos, and the northern Lehigh Valley. The Storm Prediction Center has an ENHANCED risk for Carbon/Monroe County and a SLIGHT risk for northern New Jersey and parts of the Lehigh Valley. The threat diminishes significantly the further south you go as guidance has the line fizzling rather quickly once the sun goes down. Delmarva and far southern New Jersey actually will likely stay dry. The main threat is damaging wind gusts as a 50-60 kt low level jet will be overhead around the time the line of storms make it to our area which could mix down with any stronger storms. Cannot rule out a tornado as well with good low-level shear and SRH in the 0-1 km layer.

The cold front passes overnight and any showers should dissipate by midnight or so. Temperatures will drop into the 50s overnight with upper 40s in the Poconos/northern New Jersey.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/
High pressure will largely be in control Monday and Tuesday with afternoon highs in the low to mid 70s with nighttime lows in the upper 40s to low 50s.

We will see dry weather through Tuesday night before rain chances return during the late overnight hours Tuesday as our next system approaches from the west.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
Heading into Wednesday and continuing through the end of the work week, the forecast becomes decidedly wetter. A pair of expansive upper-level lows will be slowly transiting across the north central United States and eastern Canada. This action will bring several mid- level waves to the Eastern Seaboard and provide ample opportunities for showers or a few thunderstorms to develop and move through the area. As of now, the most organized of these waves looks to move through the region Wednesday-Wednesday night and the highest PoPs of the long term period (55-65%) are in this period to reflect that.
Overall though, it is still a bit premature at this time to say any particular day through the back half of the week will be a complete washout. High temperatures through the end of the work week remain near to above normal in the mid 60s-mid 70s.

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

Tonight...VFR with mostly clear skies. A few high clouds late.
W-NW around 5-10 kt will gradually gain a more SW component through the overnight hours. High confidence.

Sunday...VFR expected at all terminals. Light SW winds early around 5-10 kt will increase by 14-15Z around 10-15 kt with gusts reaching up to 20-25 kt through the afternoon. Some showers and scattered thunderstorms are anticipated to move in during the late afternoon/early evening, mainly for KRDG/KABE.
Sub-VFR conditions are possible within any thunderstorm that does occur. Any lingering sub-VFR conditions Sunday night will lift to VFR once the cold front comes through. Moderate confidence overall.

Outlook...

Monday and Tuesday...VFR conditions expected with fair weather.

Wednesday and Wednesday night...Sub-VFR conditions possible (30-40%)
with showers. SSE winds around 10 kts to start, gradually increasing to 15 kts by late afternoon with gusts up to 20 kts at night.

MARINE
For the coastal waters north of Great Egg Inlet, a Small Craft Advisory remains in effect until 4 AM on Sunday, mostly due to lingering seas above 5 feet. Conditions will temporarily drop below SCA levels for the first half of Sunday, before another SCA will likely be needed as S-SW winds gust up to 25-30 kt on Sunday afternoon.

Likewise for the ocean waters south of Great Egg Inlet, a brief period of sub-SCA conditions are expected for the first half of Sunday, before another SCA will be needed on Sunday afternoon.

For the Delaware Bay, sub-SCA conditions are expected through Sunday.

Outlook...

Monday and Tuesday...Small craft conditions gradually wind down Monday morning. Otherwise, sub-SCA conditions expected through Tuesday night

Wednesday and Wednesday night...Winds and seas gradually build as the next storm system approaches. SCA conditions possible by Wednesday night.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
PA...None.
NJ...None.
DE...None.
MD...None.
MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 4 AM EDT early this morning for ANZ450>452.
