SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will move through to our north tonight through Wednesday dragging a cold front through the region. High pressure builds in behind the front and dominates through the weekend. The next low pressure system looks to affect the region early next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. The cold front has pushed offshore of southern Delmarva, and with it the first band of light precipitation. A secondary band has developed upstream near a region of 925mb FGEN and this may keep some light rain hanging around for a couple more hours in Delmarva and southern NJ. Otherwise the mid and high lvl cloud deck will continue to push offshore through the morning hours with most areas becoming mostly sunny by mid to late morning (apart from maybe far southern Delmarva).

Today will be dry as cold and strong (>1045 mb) High Pressure over the Upper Midwest begins to exerts its influence over our area. Although there will be continued cold advection in WNW flow, abundant sunshine and cooling aloft should promote efficient mixing. Expect highs to reach near or just above climo, ranging from the mid to upper 30s in the Poconos to near 50 over Delmarva. Generally expect mostly sunny skies apart from some passing cirrus, and possibly some stratocumulus over primarily the Poconos.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM THURSDAY/. A dry night is expected under continued cold advection. Despite the cooling airmass and mostly clear skies, the radiational cooling potential will be tempered somewhat by persistent (albeit light) NW winds. Consequently expect near-climo overnight lows, ranging from the upper teens in the Poconos to the upper 20s in Delmarva.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Quiet weather dominates the rest of the week as the region sits under and area of broad high pressure. Expect clouds to increase over the region Thursday as a low pressure system slides to our south. Models have trended further north with the system but not appreciable enough to warrant increasing precip chances any higher than 20-30% across DelMarVa. Clouds clear Thursday night as the winds decouple and temps should fall rapidly especially west of the I95 corridor. Anticipate temps in the single digits for eastern PA and northwestern NJ. Winds become more southerly heading into Friday as modest warm air advection begins and the zonal flow aloft breaks down. High pressure crests over the weekend with no precip expected through Sunday afternoon.

The next chance for showers arrives Monday as a surface low pressure system and vertically stacked cutoff upper level low form over the OK panhandle and dive south into the southern plains before lifting into the Mid Atlantic. Rainfall associated with northward moving warm front should start to impact the region as early as Monday afternoon but potentially as late as Tuesday morning given the spread in the medium ranged guidance. There's considerable agreement in a system forming however there's a lot to be desired in terms of intensity and timing. Brief high pressure returns behind that system in the form of an upper level ridge and then the rest of next week looks a bit more active. Dont get your hopes up too high but the EC and EC ensembles bring a clipper system through the region late in the week.

AVIATION /09Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Tonight . VFR conditions continue early this evening except RDG where some light rain and light fog is producing MVFR conditions. As a cold front moves across the area, light rain showers will increase across the area, temporarily leading lower ceilings and visibilities at times. Latest guidance indicates that all areas will only lower to MVFR, so we removed the IFR conditions from the ABE and RDG forecast. The cold front will slowly moves offshore late tonight and through daybreak Wednesday, and showers will end from west to east behind the front and all areas will return to VFR. Moderate to high confidence on overall conditions.

There is a warm front draped across portions of northeast Pennsylvania into central New Jersey this evening. This front will be slow to lift northward, before the cold front finally moves into the area. North of this boundary, winds are either light and variable or northeast around 5 knots. South of this warm front, winds are mostly south to southwest. Once the cold front moves across the area, winds will shift to the northwest and become gusty 15-20 knots. High confidence on winds.

Wednesday . VFR conditions will continue through the day Wednesday and lower clouds will lift through the day and give way to high level clouds. Winds will remain northwest and gusty 15-20 knots, before diminishing toward sunset. High confidence.

Outlook .

Thursday through Thursday night . VFR ceilings with possible MVFR ceilings for RDG and ABE will give way to clearing skies Thursday night. Northwesterly winds will be 5-10kts with gusts up to 15kt during the predawn hours Friday.

Friday through Sunday Night . VFR with northwesterly winds from 5 to 10 knots shifting to westerly Saturday and southwesterly by Sunday. High confidence.

MARINE. Today . Initial seas in the 4-5 ft range should decrease into the 3- 4 ft. range by this afternoon. NW wind gusts approaching 25 kts may be possible this morning, before dropping off to 15-20 kts later in the day.

Tonight . Sub-SCA conditions expected with 2-3 ft seas and NW winds 10-15kts

Outlook .

Thursday . Northwest winds generally becoming northerly through the day. Speeds will generally be around 10 to 15 knots with gusts up to 20 knots. Seas generally 2 to 4 feet or less.

Thursday night through Friday . SCA conditions expected with possible Gale force wind gusts overnight as northerly winds will become sustained 20 to 25kts with gusts up to 35kts possible during the predawn hours Friday morning. Seas 1-3 feet Thursday night increasing to 2-4 feet Friday.

Friday night through Sunday . Below SCA conditions expected as seas subside to 1 to 3 feet and offshore winds remain 10 to 20kts diminishing by Sunday.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . None. NJ . None. DE . None. MD . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 6 AM EST early this morning for ANZ450>455.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
