SYNOPSIS
High pressure will remain in place across New England today. A weak low pressure system will track northward along the coast late tonight into Tuesday bringing another round of rain to the area. A stronger low pressure system will impact the area Wednesday through early Thursday bringing yet another round of rain. The pattern will remain unsettled into next weekend with another system impacting the region on Saturday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/
Quiet conditions continue through the evening as some mid level clouds are currently sitting over the western portion of the forecast area. Further west fog is setting up over the protected river valleys in PA/NY so as we continue to cool this evening anticipate some light patchy fog to develop. Crossover temps from yesterday's 21z dewpoints were in the upper 40s so as of 2am we are just starting to drop below that. Dense fog can't be ruled out but isn't currently anticipated.

Sensible weather should remain quiet through the morning and into the afternoon before the next system arrives. That system in the form of a weak cutoff low at 500mb will track up the east coast similar to the system over the weekend and then push towards New England by Tuesday night. Guidance has trended the heaviest precip footprint slightly further west with the system and with precip totals generally on the 0.5-1" range. NBM probs of greater than an inch are relatively low on the order of 10% across PA and NJ however are in the 20-25% range for DelMarVa and southern NJ across Cape May. Thermal profiles show this to be only a rainfall event.

Earliest arrival time of rainfall across DelMarVa should be around 6pm with the most likely time of rainfall beginning shortly before midnight. Further north and east those time range are delayed with rainfall not expected in Philly until 2-3am and not until 4-5am across the Lehigh Valley and central/northern NJ. Light steady rainfall should continue through the overnight and will end mid morning with the consensus of guidance ending rainfall between 7-9a across DelMarVa and closer to 10a-12pm Tuesday for the more northern locations. No significant impacts are anticipated other than to continue to prime the rivers ahead of another event later in the week.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/
As the early week system departs by Tuesday night, we should get a roughly 18-24 hour break in precipitation ahead of the Wednesday system. A southern stream trough will lift northeast toward the East Coast Tuesday night into Wednesday, remaining in the vicinity of the East Coast into Thursday. Cyclogensis is anticipated to occur across the Southeast Tuesday night, with the surface low lifting northeast and reaching the Mid-Atlantic by Wednesday night then departing offshore into Thursday.

Tuesday night should be largely dry, though some light rain may begin before daybreak in some spots before daybreak Wednesday.
Rainfall will overspread the region from south to north during the late morning and afternoon Wednesday and depart late overnight. PWats near 1-1.5" could support some locally moderate to heavy rainfall rates at times. Some light rain may linger into Thursday morning, but the main show will be over by then.
Storm total rainfall amounts with the Wednesday system are currently forecast to range from around 1-2" area wide, with the greatest amounts closer to the coast. Locally higher rainfall amounts are certainly possible. Given the antecedent rain events and soggy ground, this may result in some minor flooding of low lying and urban areas and could also result in some river flooding as well.

As the low pressure strengthens and draws nearer to the area Wednesday night and Thursday, north to northeast winds will become a bit breezy. Sustained winds near 15-20 mph can be expected during this period with gusts near 30-35 mph possible.

The lack of any cold advection between systems will keep temperatures above normal through Thursday with highs in the 50s to possibly near 60 degrees in spots on Wednesday, depending on how quickly the rain moves in.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/
We should see another 24 hour break in rainfall from Thursday night through Friday ahead of the next system impacting the region by Saturday through at least Saturday night. Friday is shaping up to be a fairly decent day amid the barrage of rainy systems, with highs in the 50s and partly cloudy skies. This will be attributed to shortwave ridging passing across the region and surface high pressure briefly ridging down into the area from the northeast.

Heading into the weekend, the unsettled pattern will continue as troughing amplifies across the Great Lakes. Another low pressure system is forecast to develop across the Midwest on Friday, pushing east and eventually impacting the Mid-Atlantic by Saturday. Guidance begins to diverge significantly on the ultimate outcome of this setup, so the details remain unclear.
however, it does appear to be a wet period with temperatures returning closer to normal.

AVIATION /08Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Rest of Overnight...VFR with a small chance (10%) of fog reducing visibilities to less than 1 mile except for MIV/ACY where the marine layer may advect in higher moisture. Chances for less than 1 mile vis are higher (20-30%) through the morning at each of those terminals. Winds are light and variable.

Today...VFR through the morning outside any fog/low clouds at ACY/MIV with clouds building and MVFR cigs developing late in the afternoon. Winds will be Easterly 5-10kts.

Tonight...IFR/MVFR. Periods of rain will move in across the region with the highest chances (70-80%) for IFR generally along the coast. NE-E winds around 5-12 kt.

Tuesday...IFR/MVFR. Rainfall will be ending across the region from south to north but high chances (90%) of at least MVFR and 70% chance of less than 1000ft cigs from TTN south and east per latest probabilistic guidance through at least 21z.

Outlook...

Wednesday through Wednesday night...Sub-VFR likely with another period of rain. The rain may be moderate to heavy at times. N to NE winds around 10-20 kt with gusts up to 30 kt. Low confidence on details.

Thursday through Thursday night...Sub-VFR likely to start with showers lingering early Thursday. N winds around 10-15 kt gusting up to 20-25 kt. Low confidence on details.

Friday...VFR expected during the day. NW-N winds around 5-10 kt.
Moderate confidence.

MARINE
SCA continues this morning with Buoy 44009 and 44091 both still reporting 4-5 ft significant wave height albeit on roughly a 10 second period. The sig wave heights should continue to wane through the rest of the morning with the SCA expected to be allowed to expire by 7am this morning. Later this morning seas should be around 3-4 feet on an 8 second period with east northeast winds. Winds and seas will be building during the afternoon with SCA conditions becoming likely again around 4-5pm this time on shorter period swells. Visibilities could be restricted over the waters but confidence isn't that high on exactly how low the vis is. Nevertheless any marine user should be careful and aware of the potential for marine fog through the morning.

Seas expected to remain 4-6 feet through Tuesday with gusts of 20- 25kts during periods of rain overnight into Tuesday.

Outlook...

Tuesday night...SCA conditions possible early with seas lingering near 5 feet. S-SW winds around 5-10 kt. Seas of 3-5 feet.

Wednesday through Wednesday night...SCA conditions likely develop late. E-SE winds around 15-20 kt with gusts in excess of 25 kt. Seas building 5-8 feet overnight.

Thursday through Friday...SCA conditions likely. N-NE winds around 15-25 kt with gusts up to 30 kt on Thursday, diminishing to 10-15 kts on Friday. Seas of 5-8 feet on Thursday, lowering to 4-6 feet on Friday.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
PA...None.
NJ...None.
DE...None.
MD...None.
MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 7 AM EST this morning for ANZ450>455.
