SYNOPSIS. A cold front will move across the area this morning. Meanwhile, a low will form over Delmarva and lift along New Jersey and into New England through the morning. Another cold front moves across the region tonight. High pressure returns for the start of the new week, and then a series of weak low pressure systems will pass through the region for the middle and later parts of the week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Upper-air analysis at 00z indicated a broad upper-level low in the Great Lakes region with a strengthening jet streak from the Gulf Coast northeastward to the Mid-Atlantic. Difluent midlevel flow downstream of an intense 500-mb jet streak (100+ kt) encompassed much of the Appalachians and Northeast, with strong warm/moist advection in the lee of the higher terrain. Widespread precipitation was occurring in this region, with a band of convective showers along the leading edge of stronger advection now in southern New England. In our area, light to moderate (stratiform) rain was occurring in the regions of broad warm advection and midlevel cyclonic vorticity advection. At the surface, low pressure was in the developing stage near or just off the coast of the southern Mid-Atlantic and should continue to intensify today. However, this will occur as it progresses quickly northeastward, so precipitation will likely be ending shortly after daybreak across the area. There may be a few breaks in cloud cover, but this will be short-lived as low- level mixing and cold air aloft will generate considerable cloud cover by afternoon.

As the upper low moves through the region through this evening, embedded perturbations within the large-scale trough will likely generate regions of lift and potentially some showers. The best chances of this for our area are in the Poconos, via favorable northwest flow and in central/southern Delmarva, downstream of a potent vort max moving through this afternoon. Impacts in each of these areas should be minimal, but would not be surprised to see some brief reductions in visibility in light snow in the Poconos. Temperatures will likely be warm enough for liquid in Delmarva, but cannot rule out a flurry or two. Chances of measurable precipitation seem quite low, so only slight-chance to chance PoPs appear warranted. Any precipitation should taper off late this evening and tonight, with even some potential for some clearing.

There is little spread in guidance for highs today, so used a consensus blend. The result is highs in the 30s for the Poconos and the 40s to around 50 elsewhere. Lows tonight are a little less certain, as cloud cover and elevated winds may preclude substantial radiational cooling. For now, have temperatures mainly near to slightly below freezing, but would not be surprised if lows end up a little warmer.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. A dry period with weak ridging aloft Sunday and a short wave trough sweeping through Monday. Maybe a few flurries far N/W, but not in the grids attm. Seasonable temps with gusty daytime winds with gusts 15 to 25 mph both days.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. The last remnants of the large upper low will have past off to the east/northeast by Tue morning with a mostly zonal upper flow across the Middle Atlantic and Northeast. Surface high pressure will be to the south but ridging up into our area. This means a dry forecast for Tue and into Wed. Clouds will be increasing Wed however with the next system pushing towards the area. Temperatures will be a little above normal Tue and close to normal Wed.

As the week wears on, the next disturbance moves SE out of the Canadian prairies and turns across the Great Lakes. The GFS has the clipper-like system pushing N of the area later Thu then into New England Thu night/Fri. The low pressure is rather strong, but with a north track, a mostly rain event is foreseen for our region with perhaps some snow at the onset, any maybe some accum snow for the N/W-most areas. The feature is rather disorganized, so just some chc pops were kept in the fcst for Thu/Thu night attm. I'm sure we'll see various solutions as the weekend/early next week wear on. Temperatures look above normal Thu, close to normal Fri, then back to below normal for Sat.

AVIATION /08Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Rest of tonight . Quite variable conditions exist across the area, with a region of general VFR near/southeast of PHL quickly deteriorating to IFR/LIFR near/northeast of TTN/PNE. Meanwhile, MVFR/VFR conditions have tended to dominate at RDG/ABE, where rain is generally scattering the lowest cloud bases and rates are high enough to prevent visibility-reducing drizzle. Expect these varying conditions to continue, though there should be some general deterioration in CIGs to MVFR/IFR between 06z and 12z. Winds will be quite erratic but generally near/less than 7 kt. Expect several amendments to the TAFs given the varying/transient conditions across the area.

Saturday . Lingering MVFR in the morning should transition to VFR through the day, probably by late morning or early afternoon in most spots. Winds will become west or west-northwest around 10 kt, with maybe a few gusts to 20 kt in the afternoon. Moderate confidence.

Saturday night . Mainly VFR with west winds around 10 kt. High confidence.

Outlook .

Sunday/Monday . Mostly VFR with transient clouds. A few snow showers far N/W possible. Gusty winds 15 to 25 knots mainly during the daylight hours. Medium confid.

Tuesday/Wed . Mostly VFR. Increasing clouds late Wed. Medium confid.

MARINE. A brief lull in advisory conditions is occurring on the New Jersey coast early this morning, as the stronger winds have moved east of the area. However, seas are expected to build quickly this morning and will likely be near or slightly above 5 feet much of today and tonight. Meanwhile, as winds become more westerly today, speeds will increase to 10 to 20 kt with gusts to 30 kt, with conditions spreading southward with time. Eventually, gusts should exceed criteria on Delaware Bay, likely some time this evening.

A small craft advisory is in effect for the New Jersey coastal waters today and tonight, for the Delaware coastal waters this afternoon and tonight, and for Delaware Bay this evening and tonight.

Rain will continue through the early morning before tapering off by midday. Some visibility restrictions are possible early this morning.

Outlook .

Sunday through Sunday night . SCA flag Sunday will probably be lowered during the evening and winds and seas subside. Fair.

Monday through Wednesday . Winds and seas occasionally rise to SCA criteria. Fair weather expected.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . None. NJ . None. DE . None. MD . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory from 6 AM this morning to 6 PM EST Sunday for ANZ452-453. Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM EST Sunday for ANZ450-451. Small Craft Advisory from noon today to 6 PM EST Sunday for ANZ454-455. Small Craft Advisory from 6 PM this evening to 6 PM EST Sunday for ANZ430-431.
