Synopsis for the coastal waters from sandy hook nj to fenwick island de and for delaware bay.. A surface trough will remain across the mid-atlantic region through the middle of the week. A weak cold front is expected to drop down across the region tonight, before stalling near the area through late Tuesday. This front may return northward Wednesday, before a stronger cold front moves into the region Wednesday night. This front will slowly move across the area through Thursday as low pressure tracks along it. High pressure then builds across the northeast Saturday, then offshore later Sunday.

Synopsis
A surface trough will remain across the mid-atlantic region
through the middle of the week. A weak cold front is expected to
drop down across the region tonight, before stalling near the
area through late Tuesday. This front may return northward
Wednesday, before a stronger cold front moves into the region
Wednesday night. This front will slowly move across the area
through Thursday as low pressure tracks along it. High pressure
then builds across the northeast Saturday, then offshore later
Sunday.

Near term through tonight
As of 1020 am, expanded the heat advisory for today to include
much of eastern pa (in coordination with WFO state college) and
more of nj where peak heat indices this afternoon will be right
around 100. This is so close to the criteria and given dew
points running a little higher for some areas thus far went
ahead and expanded the advisory. Otherwise, made some
adjustments to the temperature, dew point, wind and sky grids to
account for the current conditions and trends. Lingering low
clouds are now rapidly dissipating as strong heating is ongoing.

The main convective trigger by later today looks to be a
surface trough, which is currently sitting just west of our
area. If the timing holds, a round of convection may be confined
to areas of the delaware valley and points east and south, as
the trough could progress offshore by early this evening. Model
soundings show plenty of instability, but with low shear. A 13z
mesoscale analysis already shows 1500-2500 j kg of MLCAPE from
about the i-95 corridor on eastward however there is still a
low-level cap in place. Due to the low shear but high
instability, storms should be mostly pulse in nature unless
merging storms are able to develop a cold pool and assist with
some organization. Given the environment in place, local
downbursts, hail and heavy rain look to be the main threats.

Some additional convection could come tonight, as a weak cold
front is expected to sink into our region before stalling and
becoming even more diffuse. At this point, there is low
confidence as to how much coverage of showers and thunderstorms
we will see, as it looks to come late enough that a nocturnal
inversion may have already developed, limiting instability.

Short term Tuesday through Tuesday night
Continue to watch the potential for heavy rain flooding on
Tuesday afternoon and night. However, there were some rather
significant changes with the latest model runs. While the
surface pattern still looks close to a maddox frontal pattern,
in the upper levels, the latest models have our region
sandwiched in between two mid level short wave troughs, the
first crossing out of va during the day, while the second one
could lift from western pa to ny late in the day (with
yesterday's 00z model run, it looked like this second trough
would dig further SE closer to our region). If this pattern
holds, the majority of the precipitation could stay NW of our
area. For now, I will continue with the mention in the hwo, to
see if this model trend holds.

Another day of hot and humid conditions are possible. In
addition to the urban corridor where the heat advisory will
remain in effect, portions of DELMARVA could get close to heat
advisory criteria.

Long term Wednesday through Sunday
An active beginning of the long term continues, before a return
of quieter conditions for the weekend.

On Wednesday, the back door frontal boundary that stalls near
the area Tuesday is forecast to return northward as a warm front
early in the day. Some showers will be possible early in the
day as the front lifts northward, but the better chance of
showers and thunderstorms will be during the afternoon as a
couple of short waves vorticity impulses aloft interact with a
lee-side thermal trough that remains across the mid-atlantic
region. It will remain quite warm and humid, with temperatures
several degrees above normal and dewpoints in the upper 60s and
lower 70s, so there will remain a fair amount of instability
across the area with CAPE values reaching 1,500-2,000 j kg. Bulk
shear is not overly impressive at 25 to 30 knots as mid level
winds are fairly weak. Nevertheless, there will remain a chance
for some of the strongest updrafts to produce locally damaging
winds and large hail. SPC has our area outlined in a marginal
risk for severe weather. Another concern on Wednesday will be
the threat for heavy rainfall. Pw values reach 1.75-2.00 inches,
so any thunderstorms will likely be efficient rain producing
storms. The shower and thunderstorm activity is expected to
diminish overnight Wednesday as daytime instability wanes and
the short wave vorticity impulses from the afternoon passes
eastward.

A cold front is forecast to move into the area early on
Thursday, before sliding eastward through the day. As the day
wears on, instability will build ahead of the cold front, while
shear begins to increase. There will be a chance for some strong
thunderstorms to develop, which could produce strong winds and
hail. Heavy rain will continue to be a concern as pw values
increase to 2+ inches, so any storms that develop will likely be
efficient rain producing storms. The storms will likely
continue for eastern areas as the front progresses eastward, but
as the front moves offshore, showers and thunderstorms will
come to an end.

The forecast for Friday is a little uncertain as there is
differences between the GFS and ecmwf. The GFS pushes the front
far enough south to keep the area dry, while the ECMWF has the
front stalling just to our south with an area of low pressure
moving along the boundary. This would bring a period of rainfall
to much of the area Friday. The previous model run of the ecmwf
had the front and low, but not as far north but still had some
precipitation for parts of the area. For now, we will keep a
chance of showers and thunderstorms for the southern half of the
area due to the uncertainty.

Saturday and Sunday are expected to be dry weather as high
pressure builds across the northeast and mid-atlantic region
Saturday, then builds offshore Sunday. As the high builds
offshore Sunday, there may be an increase in cloud cover, but
dry conditions will remain.

Temperatures for Friday through Sunday are expected to be below
normal and dewpoints will be much lower than the next few days.

Aviation 15z Monday through Friday
The following discussion is for kphl, kpne, kttn, kabe, krdg,
kilg, kmiv, kacy and surrounding areas.

Rest of today... Local MVFR conditions improve toVFR by 15z,
then remainingVFR overall. Some showers and thunderstorms
however will develop, especially this afternoon, and will result
in local ifr conditions for a brief time. Lowered confidence
regarding coverage and actual timing. Light and variable winds
becoming southwest 5-10 knots, then becoming more south at acy
this afternoon and perhaps westerly at rdg and abe.

Tonight...VFR outside of any lingering showers and
thunderstorms this evening, then some local stratus and fog
cannot be ruled out overnight. Light westerly winds or light and
variable calm.

Outlook...

Tuesday... Starting with mostlyVFR conditions. However,
scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected starting
Tuesday afternoon into the overnight, resulting in temporary
MVFR or even ifr conditions. Outside of thunderstorms,
southeasterly and southerly winds of 5 to 10 kt are expected.

Wednesday-Wednesday night... GenerallyVFR outside of showers
and thunderstorms. Conditions will temporarily lower to MVFR or
ifr during any showers and thunderstorms. Southwest winds may
gust around 15-20 knots during the day.

Thursday-Thursday night... GenerallyVFR outside of showers and
thunderstorms. Conditions will temporarily lower to MVFR or ifr
during any showers and thunderstorms. Winds start out southwest
early in the day, before shifting to west and northwest later in
the day and overnight behind a cold front. Winds could gust
15-20 knots behind the cold front overnight at times.

Friday...VFR conditions expected. Northwest winds may gust
15-20 knots at times.

Marine
Winds and seas are expected to stay below small craft advisory
criteria today and tonight. However, thunderstorms are possible
this afternoon and evening. The strongest of these storms will
be capable of gusty winds at or above 35 kt.

Outlook...

Tuesday... Winds and seas should stay below SCA criteria.

Wednesday-Wednesday night... Conditions expected to remain below
advisory levels, although winds could gust around 20 knots and
seas approach 4 feet at times.

Thursday-Thursday night... There is a chance winds and waves may
approach advisory levels for the southern new jersey and
delaware coastal waters Thursday into Thursday night. The rest
of the waters are expected to remain below advisory levels.

Friday... Conditions are expected to be below advisory levels
through the day Friday.

Rip currents...

there is a low risk for the development of dangerous rip currents
through this evening.

Phi watches warnings advisories
