Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 450 AM EDT Fri Jul 3 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure builds over the area today, but a weak cold front will drop south through the region later today through tonight. High pressure returns for the weekend, and will be in place into the new week. Several disturbances will pass through the region as well through the middle of next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. The main story today will be the late afternoon and evening thunderstorm potential as well as the hottest day so far this year across portions of the forecast area.

The upper low will continue pushing south and east of the area today as ridging builds to our west resulting in northwest flow aloft. At the surface, high pressure will remain well west of the area with weak low pressure located just offshore. Additionally, surface ridging will begin to push into the area from the northeast toward the latter half of the day as an associated backdoor front sinks into the region into the evening.

While northwesterly flow around 5-10 mph will prevail at the surface through much of the day, dewpoints will remain mostly in the low to mid 60s area wide resulting in ML/SBCAPE values in the 1000 J/kg neighborhood. A mid-level impulse is forecast to approach the area from the Hudson River Valley toward the late afternoon bringing forcing aloft and deep layer shear on the order of 25 kts. This combined with the backdoor front is forecast to result in the development of scattered thunderstorms mainly north of the I-76 and I-195 corridors, however some more isolated activity cannot be ruled out farther south across the Philly metro, southern NJ, and Delmarva, especially into the evening. Storms could be strong to locally severe with gusty to locally damaging winds possible in the strongest storms. The highest, albeit marginal, severe thunderstorm threat will be generally along and north of the I-78 corridor from about the 5 PM to 8 PM hours. Additionally, PWat values will be on the order of 2.00", so heavy rain may become a concern where convection tends to train, especially across more urbanized areas in the vicinity of the backdoor front. WPC has added a slight risk for excessive rainfall centered across northern New Jersey to highlight this threat.

Moving on to temperatures, a rather hot day is shaping up for much of the region, the hottest day so far this year for some. 850 mb temps are forecast to be in the 19-20 C range. This combined with the northwest flow will add some downsloping effects to further enhance the warming today. The result will likely be widespread temperatures in the mid 90s away from the coasts and highest terrain, where temperatures in the mid to upper 80s can be expected. With dewpoints mixing down into the low 60s where the highest temperatures are forecast, it will not feel oppressively hot and heat indicies will top out in the mid to upper 90s. The biggest question mark with regard to the temperature forecast will be how much cloud cover develops, especially toward the peak afternoon heating hours, however given the aforementioned factors, I don't believe the cloud cover will matter too much, especially from the Philly metro and points west and south.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 AM SATURDAY/. Scattered showers and storms are forecast to decrease in coverage and strength as the evening progresses and instability wanes. The surface ridging will be taking control of the sensible weather during this time as well and temperatures will fall into the 70s and upper 60s into the overnight period along with east to northeasterly winds around 5-10 mph and increasing cloud cover.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Cold front will be south of the region and across the Mid- Atlantic by Saturday morning. A more seasonal airmass spreads into the region with closer to normal temperatures. Some shortwave energy passing through the region Saturday afternoon may trigger some isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Thereafter, high pressure builds in from the west, and an increasingly hot and humid airmass will spread east into much of the upcoming week. Temperatures will warm into the upper 80s and low 90s Sunday, and then into the low to mid 90s as the new week progresses. In addition, surface dewpoints will generally be in the low to mid 60s, rising to around 70 by Thursday. This results in max heat index values generally in the upper 90s Monday through Thursday. If conditions are just a bit warmer or a bit more humid, Heat Advisories may be needed.

Conditions should be dry on Sunday, but then afternoon and early evening convection will be possible each day starting on Monday as some shortwaves pass through the region. Given how humid it will be, locally heavy rain could be a threat.

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

Today . VFR with scattered to broken clouds generally increasing after 18Z. Scattered showers and thunderstorms developing after 21Z, which may locally reduce ceiling and visibility categories. Convective coverage remains questionable, so have left VCTS/VCSH in the TAFs for now. Winds northwesterly around 5-10 kts becoming north to northeast after 21Z. High confidence on prevailing VFR, low confidence on shower and thunderstorm coverage.

Tonight . Initially VFR with MVFR ceilings developing around 06Z. Showers and thunderstorms diminishing after 03Z. Winds east to northeast around 5 kts. Moderate confidence.

Outlook .

Saturday through Tuesday . Generally VFR. Scattered afternoon and evening SHRA/TSRA possible Saturday afternoon, and then again on Monday and Tuesday with locally lower CIGs/VSBYs should storms pass over a terminal. Patchy rural valley fog possible overnight.

MARINE. Today and tonight . Conditions are forecast to remain below advisory criteria through the period. Seas will be 1-2 feet across Delaware Bay and 2-3 feet across the ocean waters. Initially offshore winds around 10 kts will shift easterly during the afternoon and increase to around 10-15 kts. Scattered showers and thunderstorms during the late afternoon and evening.

Outlook .

A prolonged period where winds and seas will generally be below SCA criteria from Saturday through Tuesday. Scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms possible on Saturday, and then again on Monday and Tuesday. Seas on the ocean will be mostly 2 to 3 ft.

Rip currents . Surf zone waves less than 2 feet will result in a low risk for rip currents today. Some areas may approach a moderate risk Saturday with onshore winds.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Astronomical high tide levels will continue to rise as there will be a full moon this weekend. The evening high tides are over a foot higher than those in the morning.

A developing east to northeast wind may result in widespread minor flooding around the evening high tide both tonight and Saturday. The minor flooding could work its way up Delaware Bay and into the tidal Delaware River, as well. Issues are not anticipated with the morning high tides.

Based on the latest guidance this morning, will hold off on issuing a Coastal Flood Advisory with the high tide tonight. Many sites are just touching Advisory criteria, with just Cape May and Bowers Beach getting well into Advisory criteria. Will see how easterly flow develops today, as a Coastal Flood Advisory may be needed tonight.

Tidal flooding is not expected on the upper eastern shore of Chesapeake Bay.

EQUIPMENT. The NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards broadcast from Hibernia Park, PA (WNG704) remains off the air until further notice due to damage to the antenna during the June 3 Derecho.

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

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.
