SYNOPSIS. High pressure will build across the region with the center passing just to our south and offshore early in the week. As the high moves offshore a warm front will lift north bringing a return of hot and humid conditions on Wedensday. A cold front will approach the region on Thursday before stalling over the Mid- Atlantic through the end of the week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM MONDAY MORNING/. The upper trough will push to the east of the region tonight as the surface high starts to move over the Ohio Valley. Any cu that developed today will dissipate and we should have clear skies overnight. Gusty northwest winds this afternoon will drop off this evening and will become light to locally calm overnight. With clear skies and light winds, expect us to radiate pretty well with temperatures dropping off decently tonight. Overnight lows will be in the 40s to near 50. Some portions of the southern Poconos and northwest New Jersey may even see some temps fall into the upper 30s by daybreak.

SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM MONDAY/. High pressure over the Ohio Valley Monday morning will slide to the south and east through the day, moving towards the Carolina coast by late in the day. Generally expect conditions to remain cool and dry through Monday with more of a west to northwest flow across the forecast area as the upper trough pulls off to our east. Some troughing may occur across our area during the day but with limited moisture around and northwest flow from the surface up to at least 300mb, do not anticipate that we will see any showers develop. If any showers do develop, they would be limited to the southern Poconos and northwestern New Jersey but feel that any activity will remain out of our area. Highs will be in the mid/upper 60s across the southern Poconos and portions of northwest New Jersey with lower 70s through much of the region. Areas along the coast will also remain cooler with highs staying in the upper 60s.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. High pressure begins to drift offshore heading into Tuesday. As this happens the upper level flow becomes somewhat zonal and we'll see a more active pattern through the middle of the week. The big story is that we'll have a strong warm front lift through on Wednesday and much of the region should be looking at another round of temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s. GFS soundings show we'll be well mixed under dry adiabatic lapse rates and with 850 temps around 16-17C we could easily warm to near 90. Based on the dry air and urban heat effects I boosted in the urban corridor a degree or two over that with a current forecast high of 91 for Center City. This shapes up well with the NBM's probabilistic guiance where the spread between the 25-75th quadrant is 86 to 91. I leaned towards the higher side given that I anticipate dry adiabatic conditions and generally partly cloudy skies.

With the increase in temps behind that warm front we'll also see an increase in humidity. Dew points will push up towards the mid 60s and so we'll be looking at some convective weather with chances for showers and thunderstorms from Tuesday night through Thursday.

Heading into the rest of the week we anticipate a cold front will approach the region and then stall out over the Mid Atlantic. The difficulty is in predicting exactly where it stalls out. For the time being I delayed the likelihood of it moving through the region Thursday and keep temps in the mid to upper 80s Thursday with slightly cooler temps for Friday.

Heading into the weekend the guidance is consistent with the general idea that we'll see broad upper level troughing however the medium ranged guidance indicated a fair degree of spread in the surface features during this time. Thus I stuck with 50/50 blend of persistence along with blend of the GFS/EC.

AVIATION /19Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Tonight . VFR. Northwest winds around 10 knots will diminish to around 5 knots or less overnight. High confidence.

Monday . VFR. West to northwest winds around 10 knots with gusts 15 to 20 knots. High confidence.

Outlook .

Monday night and Tuesday . Generally VFR conditions expected. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms could briefly bring MVFR/IFR, however confidence is not high that any site would directly be impacted or for how long. Light winds Monday night will become southwesterly around 5 to 10 knots. Moderate confidence on overall pattern with low confidence on specific flight reductions.

Wednesday through Thursday . Predominantly VFR conditions are likely. However, there is a chance for showers and thunderstorms through out the period which could bring brief periods of flight restrictions. Westerly winds around 5 to 10 knots. Low confidence, especially with the timing of showers and thunderstorms.

MARINE. Mainly sub-advisory conditions expected through Monday. Northwest winds around 10 to 15 knots with gusts around 20 knots. A few gusts around 25 knots are possible overnight but confidence is too low to put up an advisory for what may only be a short window less than 6 hours. Seas around 2 to 4 feet.

Outlook .

Monday through Thursday . Winds and seas should stay below SCA criteria.

Rip Currents .

A northwest wind is expected for Sunday with breaking waves around 2 feet. As a result, there is a low risk for the development of dangerous rip currents.

The wind is forecast to back toward the southwest on Monday. Breaking waves should again be around 2 feet. The low risk is expected to continue into Monday.

FIRE WEATHER. Relative humidity values could once again drop to around 30 percent on Monday afternoon (especially across the coastal plains of NJ and DE). Winds don't look to be quite as strong on Monday as they were today but some gusts around 20 MPH are expected. With conditions having dried out some more today, this could lead to elevated fire weather concerns on Monday.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . None. NJ . None. DE . None. MD . None. MARINE . None.

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.
