Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 636 PM EST Sat Jan 25 2020

SYNOPSIS. Intensifying low pressure will move northeast of the area this evening into Sunday and a cold front will move through our area this evening. A weak trough south of the main low will pass near the region on Monday. High pressure will then slowly build across the eastern half of the US through the remainder of the workweek before another area of low pressure approaches next weekend.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/.

630 update: No significant changes to going forecast as precip has moved out of the area, and the back edge of the main stratus deck is also beginning to clear the far SW part of the region. Generally expect that westerly flow and associated dry air advection will be strong enough to prevent widespread fog development overnight (despite the antecedent rainfall). The locally dense dog that has developed over the northern NJ coast recently should thin out shortly as westerly winds pick up behind the departing low.

Previous discussion:

The back edge of the main band of rain extended across the New York metropolitan area around 3:00 pm. It will continue to lift northeastward, leaving clouds and scattered showers in its wake into this evening.

A mid level low located over southeastern Michigan this afternoon, will progress eastward. The feature should pass over southern Ontario and Lake Ontario tonight. The low is expected to pull a short wave trough over our region this evening, bringing an end to any lingering showers.

Surface low pressure centered near Philadelphia at mid afternoon is forecast to drift northeastward, reaching New England tonight.

A light west wind will develop for tonight, bringing dry air into our region. As a result, we are anticipating a decrease in cloud cover for tonight. Low temperatures should favor the lower and middle 30s in our counties in eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and northeastern Maryland.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH 6 PM SUNDAY/. The mid level low is forecast to move across the Adirondacks, northern New England and southern Quebec on Sunday. The feature is expected to pull a couple weak short wave troughs over our region on Sunday. As a result, we should see an increase in stratocumulus during the daylight hours. Highs should favor the 40s with a west wind around 10 mph.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. Summary: It will be a relatively uneventful end of January as a generally dry and seasonable northwest flow aloft prevails for the bulk of the work-week with only a few low-amplitude and moisture-starved disturbances passing through. A stronger and more organized storm system may approach the area next weekend, but details are lacking at this point.

Details:

Monday/Tuesday: The secondary low which passed through the area today will ultimately strengthen and merge with the primary Great Lakes Low by Sunday night (over New Brunswick). A back- side mid-lvl shortwave will slide through the area on Monday with a weak sfc.trough extending from the larger low to our north. Given weak forcing and limited moisture do not expect much precipitation outside of possibly some snow showers/flurries over the far north, although there could be locally thick stratocumulus at times (particularly over the northern half of the area in the afternoon). Tuesday will be largely uneventful although a dry cold front does look to push in late in the day. Temperatures will generally be about 5 degrees above normal on Monday, and will cool slightly to a couple degrees above climo on Tuesday.

Wednesday-Friday. Quiet and dry as high pressure initially centered over central Ontario builds SE over the region. Temperatures will be seasonable through the period with highs generally in the upper 30s to low 40s Wed/Thurs. The High may move offshore by Friday with some return flow developing so Friday could be a bit warmer.

Saturday and beyond. A storm system looks to approach (possibly taking the form of a coastal low) next weekend but details regarding the track and associated precipitation and thermal fields are unknown at this time. Left PoPs in the Chc.Range due to timing uncertainties.

AVIATION /23Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

This evening . MVFR and IFR ceilings gradually improving to VFR. The wind should settle into the west around 10 knots. Medium confidence.

Overnight . VFR with decreasing cloud cover. West to northwest wind 5 to 10 knots. Medium confidence.

Sunday . VFR ceilings. West wind increasing around 10 knots with gusts near 20 knots. High confidence.

Outlook .

Sunday night-Tuesday . Mainly VFR, though cigs could occasionally approach MVFR at times due to stratocumulus. Winds remain west to northwest and may gust up to 20 knots at times during the daytime hours. Moderate confidence.

Wednesday/Thursday . Mainly VFR with NW winds 5-10 knots on Wed, and N winds 5 kts or less on Thursday..

MARINE. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect for the coastal waters through Sunday afternoon as decaying low pressure over southern Quebec slowly drifts east. Wind gusts will stay close to our just below 25 kts Sunday night with the SCA possibly needing to be extended through the night.

Outlook .

Monday . Winds and waves will slowly relax through the day Monday as the pressure gradient weakens.

Tuesday through Thursday . Winds and waves will remain below advisory levels through the period.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . None. NJ . None. DE . None. MD . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM EST Sunday for ANZ450>455.

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.
