Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 937 PM EDT Fri Jun 21 2024

SYNOPSIS
Bermuda high pressure remains in control through much of the weekend.
A front is forecast to remain just to our north through Sunday, however a stronger cold front will then cross our area Monday.
High pressure returns for Tuesday followed by another front for the middle of next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/
As of 935 PM, an area of convection continues to settle east- southeastward from the southern Pocono region. The intensity of much of the cores have weakened some, however given ample downstream instability and remaining DCAPE (downdraft instability), locally gusty winds cannot be ruled out. Increased the PoPs some more and held onto them a little longer down to near I-78.
The storms should eventually weaken/dissipate with an east to southeastward extent into the overnight as boundary layer cooling gradually continues. The earlier sea breeze making progress inland looks to have dissipated as well as an outflow boundary that was headed southward across northern New Jersey.

Otherwise, a very warm and muggy night on tap tonight with lows primarily in the low to mid 70s. Patchy fog is possible overnight mainly where some rain occurred this evening.

For Saturday, the overall pattern/situation remains the same as the hot conditions continue. With confidence growing as we get closer to the day and temperatures having come down just a bit in spots spots, went with a Heat Advisory for the I-95 corridor to the north and west; no other changes made besides that. The I-95 sites will likely see the mid to upper 90s as highs, but heat indices will likely stay in advisory criteria. Basically, the same shower and thunderstorm situation seen for today will repeat for Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/
The heat wave will continue into the short term, then some break in the heat Monday following a cold front which moves through. The heat headline, excessive heat watch, for Sunday will continue with highs in the mid 90s widespread and some chance for upper 90s for the urban areas. Heat index values in the 100-105 range expected for Sunday. These temps will continue with high humidity too as deep SW/S flow continues over the region. These remains some uncertainty with regards to how much cloud cover and how fast it arrives. The high temperature forecast may be affected by these factors.

More certainty is seen with regards to the precipitation forecast as a front cuts through the heat and humidity creating good chances for tstms Sunday/Sunday night. We will carry high chance and low likely pops for the periods and continue with gusty winds/heavy rainfall wording for now. The front moves offshore by Monday with some lingering clouds/showers for NJ into Monday before improvement from W to E Monday afternoon. High temps Monday will be in the mid 80s for the N/W areas and low 90s for srn NJ and Delmarva. Humidity levels will decrease with a drier W/NW flow becoming established over the area.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/
The upper high/ridge that has brought all the excessive heat to the area this week and into the weekend will slowly lose its grip over the northern Middle Atlantic region by early next week. Instead, we will be closer to the westerlies (storm track) with the big high to the SW and a weak mean trough across the Northeast. This means that while we will still have the opportunity for a hot day (especially Wed.) but we won't be in another prolonged period of excessive heat/humidity. Highs will largely favor the mid/upper 80s with a few low 90s in the urban areas.

After the showers in the short term, the precipitation for the long term will basically center on Wed./Wed night when a cold front and upper trough cross the region. We will go with the 30-40ish (%) pops offered by the NBM for now.

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

Tonight...VFR. South to southwest winds 5-10 knots, becoming locally light and variable at some terminals. Moderate confidence.

Saturday...VFR, however some afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be possible especially from near KTTN, KABE and KRDG.
Southwest winds increasing to near 10 knots, becoming south in the afternoon mainly at KILG and KACY due to bay/sea breezes.
Moderate confidence.

Outlook...
Saturday night through Sunday night...VFR except in sct showers/tstms when lower CIGS/VSBYS expected.

Monday...Morning lower clouds possible then VFR.

Tuesday...VFR.

Wednesday...Lower CIGS/VSBYS with scattered showers/tstms.

MARINE
Marine headlines are not expected through Saturday. Later on Saturday however, wind gusts are expected to increase to around 20 kts with building seas across the ocean waters. The northern New Jersey coastal waters may flirt with some 5 foot seas by later in the afternoon.

Outlook...

Saturday night... Increasing winds/seas. Low-end SCA seas develop late. Fair most areas but a few tstms for North NJ waters.

Sunday...SCA possible with enhanced winds/seas in scattered tstms.

Monday and Tuesday...Mostly sub-SCA. Fair after a few morning showers Monday.

Rip Currents...

Saturday...South winds around 10-15 mph and breaking waves around 2 feet expected. Portions of the southern New Jersey coast will maintain an onshore component of the wind, in addition to being 1 day removed from the Full Moon. As a result, have kept a MODERATE Risk for all New Jersey beaches except Monmouth County.
For the Delaware Beaches and Monmouth County, have kept a LOW Risk of dangerous rip currents.

Sunday...Southerly winds will increase from 10 mph in the morning to 20 mph in the afternoon with breaking waves around 2 to 4 feet. Due to increasing winds and higher seas along the shore, decided to go with a MODERATE Risk for dangerous rip currents for all NJ/DE beaches. May need to evaluate the potential for a HIGH Risk of rip currents for southern New Jersey beaches in future updates.
