Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 1233 PM EST Sat Dec 7 2019

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will build across the Mid Atlantic and northeast states through tonight, before shifting offshore on Sunday. A warm front is expected to lift northward across the area on Monday, followed by a cold front Tuesday into Tuesday night. High pressure builds back across the Mid Atlantic region Thursday into Thursday night, before shifting offshore through Friday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. High pressure arriving, so the fair weather day continues. Winds have been decreasing and are mostly under 10 mph now. They should further decrease as the afternoon progresses. Bumped temperatures up a degree or two, but overall a cool day with highs only expected to reach the mid/upper 30s across the north (where there is some snow on the ground) to the low 40s for Delmarva, metro Philadelphia and srn NJ.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM SUNDAY/. Strong high pressure remains overhead tonight. Winds will go nearly calm and the air is very dry, and with mainly clear skies in place it should be a very good night for radiational cooling. The upper level trough will push off to the east overnight and temperatures aloft will start to inch up slightly, but surface temperatures should drop quickly after sunset as the boundary layer decouples. Expecting one of the colder nights of the season so far with many areas dipping into the low to mid 20s and some teens to the north.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Quiet weather begins the long term period Sunday, then unsettled weather returns for the first half of next week, then quiet weather returns for the end of next week.

High pressure shifts offshore on Sunday, but the weather will remain dry through the day, although clouds will increase late in the day Winds may be a little gusty at times during the day Sunday, but gusts should remain mostly 15 to 20 mph, with occasional high peak gusts around 25 mph.

As we move into Sunday night, a warm front is expected to be lifting north toward the area, then lift across and through the area during the day Monday. At the same time, there will be multiple short wave/vorticity impulses moving across the area starting late Sunday night and continuing through Monday night, even once the warm front lifts through the area. With each of these short waves, there will be areas of enhanced lift and moisture. This is expected to lead to several possible periods of enhanced rainfall chances across the area, especially Monday into Monday evening. If any precipitation starts early enough Sunday night while temperatures a cold enough, a brief wintry mix may be possible for portions of northeast Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey before changing to all rain.

Then as we move into Tuesday, a cold front is expected to move across the area later during the day into the evening. This will lead to another period of enhanced rainfall chances, especially during the afternoon and evening. PW values will likely exceed 1.00 inches and approach 1.25-1.50 inches Monday-Tuesday, so there could be period of moderate to heavy rainfall at times. With the first round of rainfall Monday-Monday night, we could get around 1.00-1.25 inches, and with the second round of rainfall, we could get 0.50-0.75 inches. There is a chance for some poor drainage/nuisance type flooding in areas of heavier rainfall during Monday-Tuesday.

The cold front will have moved offshore overnight Tuesday. However, models are indicating additional short wave/vorticity impulses moving across the area behind the cold front Tuesday night into Wednesday. This could lead to another period of precipitation, but as temperatures cool behind the front, this precipitation could change over or mix with snow at times overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. There is still some uncertainty with this outcome, but if this happens, some areas could see some snow accumulations. This area of precipitation will move offshore during the first half of Wednesday, then our area will be under the influence of strong northwest flow the rest of the day. Lake effect snow showers will likely be ongoing through the day to our north across New York and northern Pennsylvania where the steepest lapse rates and enhanced moisture will be located. The low-mid level flow will likely keep the showers to our north, but there is still a slight chance if the flow turns a little more south some lake effect showers could make it down into our area later in the day.

The chance for showers cuts off by Thursday as high pressure builds across the area, so dry weather is expected for Thursday into Thursday night. This high builds offshore of New England on Friday, but dry weather continues to be expected through the day Friday, although there will be an increase in cloud cover later in the day ahead of an approaching storm system from the south.

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.
