Synopsis
A weak stationary front will remain stalled to the south of our area
through the early portion of next week. High pressure to our NE will
continue to slowly move offshore today while an area of low pressure
passes to our NW on Sunday. A bermuda high will build east of the
carolina coast into the middle of next week. A cold front will then
approach the region Wednesday into Thursday, with high pressure
building in it's wake on Friday.

Near term through tonight
The fog and low stratus has dissipated. However, with abundant
low level moisture as noted by surface dewpoints in the upper
60s to low 70s, and temperatures rising through the 80s, cumulus
clouds are starting to bubble up. In addition, scattered
showers and thunderstorms are beginning to fire up in eastern
pennsylvania ahead of an approaching trough.

The transition from the onshore easterly flow regime to a
southerly return flow regime will occur as the bermuda high
develops. In addition to the shifting low level flow, there is
also a mid level short wave trough which should cross from the
great lakes region into new england today. Expect most of the
convective activity with this trough to be north and west of our
region. However, if a qlcs develops, the southern poconos and
northwest nj could be on the southern fringe of that risk area.

As for thunderstorm hazards, if the qlcs scenario develops,
then the risk for strong winds associated with that could extend
into the southern poconos and northwest nj. Otherwise, the risk
is relatively low. Wind speed, and consequently wind shear, is
rather weak in the boundary and mixed layer. However, with still
relatively dry air above 800 mb, can't rule out some mid level
dry air entrainment leading to downburst gusty winds.

Temperature wise, we won't see the full effects of the southerly
return flow today since it isn't expected to develop until this
afternoon. Highs are expected to be in the 80s across most of the
area which is near or just a few degrees higher than Friday's highs.

Heat index values will likely get into the mid 90s for DELMARVA and
portions of the 95 urban corridor, but should stay well below heat
advisory criteria today.

Short term Sunday
The first round of showers and thunderstorms should dissipate
as the short wave trough lifts further northeast through the
evening. There could be a second round of showers and
thunderstorms associated with an MCV (associated with the
Saturday morning convective complex over ks mo il). However, as
with the first round, it appears that if there is a second
round, it will be mostly north and west of our area. Though the
low level flow regime will have changed by tonight, we will
have another risk for patchy fog to develop as clearing skies
should allow radiational cooling leading to low dew point
depressions. For most of the area, overnight temperatures will
stay above 70 overnight.

Long term Sunday night through Friday
Synoptic overview: southwesterly-westerly flow will prevail at
the mid-lvls through Wednesday as the area resides along the
nw N periphery of the mid-lvl subtropical ridge. Various low-
amplitude, but potentially convectively-enhanced, disturbances
will clip the NW part of our forecast area Sunday-Tuesday as the
overall storm track remains just to our nw. At the surface the
stationary front looks to remain stalled south of the area with
its attendant waves generally tracking east of the area. The
bermuda high noses slightly westward toward the beginning of
next week with warm and moist low-lvl southerly southwesterly
flow developing in response.

By Wednesday a longwave trough over canada will begin to
amplify and the associated low-lvl cold front will likely
pass through the area Thursday. Finally milder and drier air
filters into the region Friday Saturday as high pressure builds
briefly over the area.

Dailies:
Sunday: guidance has trended a bit cooler on Sunday and
consequently generally have highs "only" toping out in the
upper 80s to lower 90s with heat indices generally in the low to
mid 90s. The precipitation forecast is a bit challenging as
guidance indicates a (likely convectively- enhanced) shortwave
moving over the NW half of our area. Lift associated with this
feature combined with an unstable airmass (mlcapes generally in
the 1500-2500 j kg range) should be sufficient to generate
at least scattered thunderstorms. Consequently bumped pops in
the Sunday afternoon time frame, and can't rule out some heavy
rain and stronger storms (although shear will be lower than
previous days). Do think for example the nam's 3+ inches of qpf
are a bit overdone though.

Monday: should see less cloud cover and lower storm chances
Monday (although given persistent instability can't rule them
out) with temperatures increasing a few degrees relative to
Sunday. Currently have heat indices holding slightly below
advisory criteria (for the urban corridor) but it will be a
close call.

Tuesday Wednesday: Tuesday will likely be about as warm Monday,
with precipitation chances increasing as another low-amplitude
wave approaches the area. Given pwats around 2 inches and cape
values AOA 1500 j kg some strong storms and or locally heavy
rainfall will be possible (although shear remains modest).

Wednesday remains warm and muggy with storm chances remaining
elevated as the cold front approaches. Naturally storms could be
strong approaching the pattern transition, but details
regarding frontal timing are still too nebulous to hypothesize
on severe-potential at this time.

Thursday: the front likely moves through the area on Thursday
with some guidance hinting at two potential frontal passages; a
weaker one passing through the area late Wednesday into early
Thursday and a stronger one Thursday pm. Temperatures will be a
bit cooler with instability storm chances also decreasing
somewhat, especially over the north, as the airmass dries
behind the front.

Friday: Friday looks pleasant behind the front with highs in
the upper 70s to lower 80s with dewpoints potentially falling
into the 50s. Dry conditions prevail as high pressures builds
in from the west.

Aviation 16z Saturday through Wednesday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

This afternoon... Isolated and scattered showers and
thunderstorms are possible, primarily between 16 and 02z. The
highest risk looks to be at krdg and kabe. At the other taf
sites, confidence is too low to include in the tafs at this
time. Although winds should stay light (less than 10 kt), expect
the direction to gradually shift from easterly to southerly
through the afternoon.

Tonight... Once showers and storms dissipate, expect mostlyVFR
conditions. After 06z, patchy fog could develop. Where fog develops
tonight could be very dependent on which areas see rain today, so
haven't included a mention in the tafs at this time. Light southerly
winds are expected overnight.

Outlook...

Sunday through Tuesday...VFR, with lower restrictions possible
in scattered showers and thunderstorms. Southerly-southwesterly
winds to 5 to 10 knots.

Wednesday...VFR with restrictions likely in the late afternoon
and evening with showers and thunderstorms developing.

Southwesterly winds 5 to 10 knots, gusting to 15 knots.

Marine
Winds and seas should stay below small craft advisory conditions
today and tonight. Patchy near shore fog is possible through mid
morning this morning.

Outlook...

Sunday and Monday... Sub-sca conditions expected. Southerly
winds 10 to 15 knots. Seas 2 to 4 feet.

Tuesday... Sub-sca conditions expected. Southerly winds 10 to 15
knots and gusts to 20 knots. Seas 2 to 3 feet.

Wednesday... Sub-sca conditions expected, however southwesterly
winds may gust over 20 kts at times. Seas 2 to 4 feet.

Rip currents...

onshore flow is expected to continue for at least the first half of
the day, and seas will remain near 3 feet. Therefore, the moderate
risk for the formation of dangerous rip currents will continue on
the nj shore and at the delaware beaches through this evening.

Phi watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Nj... None.

De... None.

Md... None.

Marine... None.
