SYNOPSIS
Surface high pressure southeast of New England will slide south on Wednesday and will remain anchored offshore into next weekend. A cold front will pass through the region early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
For this afternoon, isolated showers may encroach on the southern Poconos as we have already seen, but for most of the region, continued hot and dry conditions.

Through tomorrow, the center of the mid and upper level ridge will nudge closer to our region. With the surface high remaining offshore, south to southwesterly winds will push 925 mb temps into the 21-24 deg C range across the region. There will be little relief overnight with temps only expected to fall into the mid 60s to low 70s overnight.

By tomorrow, we should have widespread subsidence across the region, which will act to further suppress any shower development in our region. Model trends have been slightly lower with high temperatures tomorrow, but I want to emphasize that the trend has only been slight. The heat advisory for portions of the region, still appears on track.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/
Almost 600 dam 500 mb high will be over the Northeast on Wednesday as 1030 mb surface high pressure will be some 500 or so miles east of Nantucket Island. 850 mb temperatures will range from 16C to 18C, which yields surface high temperatures in the low to mid 90s across most of northern New Jersey and southeast Pennsylvania, and generally in the upper 80s for Delmarva and southern New Jersey. These high temperatures have trended cooler by a couple of degrees compared to previous forecast. In addition, humidity levels will not be quite as high, as surface dew points will generally be in the lower 60s.
This results in max heat index values in the low to mid 90s.
Although these values may fall just short of Heat Advisory criteria, it will be the second day of several days of prolonged heat and humidity, so the effects of the heat will be exacerbated. Will go ahead and convert the Excessive Heat Watch that was in effect for Wednesday to a Heat Advisory for most of New Jersey, southeast Pennsylvania, and northern Delaware.

On Thursday, the 500 mb high slides south into the Mid-Atlantic while the offshore surface high slides to about 600 miles or so southeast of Atlantic City. Winds shift to more of a southwest flow compared to Wednesday, and this will tap into somewhat warmer and more humid air. Both high temperatures and surface dew points will be a few degrees higher on Thursday compared to Wednesday. Max heat index values will be in the mid to upper 90s for most of the area, and around 100 for portions of the I-95 corridor in New Jersey. Will keep the Excessive Heat Watch in effect. Some shortwave energy passing through Pennsylvania and central New York may touch off some afternoon showers and thunderstorms in the southern Poconos. Will cap PoPs at slight chance.

At night, Wednesday night will generally be in the mid to upper 60s, and it will be muggy with patchy fog developing away from the urban centers. Thursday night will be warmer and a bit more humid with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/
500 mb high sags into the Midwest and Gulf Coast states on Friday, and then down into the Southern Plains on Saturday. Meanwhile, offshore surface high becomes a Bermuda high through the weekend. As a result, hot and weather continues through the weekend.

The heat and humidity build into the region for the end of the week and weekend. Highs on Friday will be in the mid to upper 90s, possibly touching 100 along the I-95 corridor. With surface dew points in the upper 60s to around 70, max heat index values will range from 100 to as high as 110. On Saturday and Sunday, highs will be a few degrees cooler, generally in the low to mid 90s, but surface dew points will now climb into the lower 70s. This will keep max heat index values from 100 to 105. Will go ahead and extend the Excessive Heat Watch into Sunday.

Several mid-level disturbances will pass north of the region Friday and Saturday, and this may touch off afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. Will follow the NBM and keep PoPs capped at chance, mainly for the northern areas.

Cold front then approaches and passes through the region late Sunday and Sunday night. This will touch off scattered showers and thunderstorms across most of the area, which may linger into Monday. Monday turns, well, it is hard to say "cooler" as highs will be in the upper 80s to around 90, which are still above normal. So the best way to say it will be, "Not as hot".

AVIATION /18Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Through Tonight...VFR. Isolated -TSRA northwest of KABE possible through 03Z. Winds varying between SSE and SSW. Wind speeds 10 kt or less.

Wednesday...VFR with few if any clouds. Winds predominantly S at 10 kt or less.

Outlook...

Wednesday Night through Thursday...VFR.

Friday through Saturday...Predominantly VFR, but scattered SHRA/TSRA possible each afternoon and evening.

MARINE
No marine headlines expected through Wednesday. South winds 10 to 20 knots this afternoon. Winds will gust around 20 knots, especially right along the beaches and in the backbays. Farther offshore, there will likely be enough of an inversion to limit mixing and stronger gusts.

We haven gotten reports of higher waves in the area of some inlets. Based on surrounding observations and coastal web cams, it looks as if this may be confined to the inlets, so have held off on issuing any SCA, but will continue to monitor to see if it becomes more widespread.

Outlook...

Wednesday through Saturday...Winds and seas should generally stay below SCA criteria. However, winds on northern NJ ocean waters will increase to 15 to 20 kt and gusts may approach 25 kt each afternoon.

Rip Currents...

Through Wednesday, southerly winds of 10-20 mph along the coast with some enhancement from sea breeze circulations. Breaking waves in the surf zone are forecast to be around 2 feet, however there looks to be some longer period swell energy rolling in. Given the southerly wind component intersecting more of the New Jersey coast, went with a MODERATE risk for the development of dangerous rip currents both Tuesday and Wednesday for all locations except Monmouth county where like the Delaware Beaches the winds will be more parallel and therefore a LOW risk.

Rip currents occur often in the vicinities of jetties and piers.
