SYNOPSIS. High pressure located over the Upper Midwest will continue to slowly shift south and east over the next few days, with the center of the high finally passing off the Carolina coast on Sunday. Low pressure is expected to progress from the middle Mississippi River Valley on Monday to the northeastern states on Tuesday. Another area of low pressure may trail behind this low and impact the area towards the middle of next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. High clouds, along with some mid level clouds, are expected for today in association with a 170+ knot upper level jet over our region.

A cold front approaching from the north is expected to drop into the Poconos, the Lehigh Valley and northern New Jersey this afternoon. The boundary may be accompanied by some snow flurries.

Low pressure will drift northeastward off the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina today. The northern edge of the precipitation shield associated with the low may begin to approach southern Delaware late in the day.

A light north to northwest wind is anticipated for today. Highs should favor the upper 30s and lower 40s in our region, with readings not getting above the freezing mark in the elevated terrain of the Poconos and far northern New Jersey.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM FRIDAY/. The cold front will continue to push through the region for the first half of the overnight period, while the approaching shortwave should begin to lift the low to our south out to sea. Drier air filtering in behind the front should result in clearing skies from N-S with mostly clear skies expected by Friday morning. Any light precipitation either associated with the front or the southern low should clear the area by midnight.

Overnight lows will be a bit challenging as this will be a situation where the winds will remain somewhat elevated behind the front, but at the same time there will be fairly strong cold advection. Consequently went towards the mean of guidance which results in a fairly cool night with lows bottoming out in the upper teens to lower 20s by Friday morning, but temperatures could be locally colder in prone spots (e.g. Pine Barrens, PA valleys) if we decouple.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Friday through Sunday . The start of the extended will be quite uneventful as the expansive Central US High very slowly drifts southeastwards and also weakens. At upper levels the area will remain displaced from both the southern and northern streams which will further support the tranquil weather . and even clouds will be hard to come by.

Friday will remain on the cool side with highs generally only in the mid to upper 30s but we will begin to warm up quickly over the weekend as the low-lvl flow backs to more westerly and then southwesterly. Saturday's highs should be in the upper 40s to lower 50s, while Sunday's highs will generally be in the low to mid 50s. These temperatures combined with abundant sunshine should make for a very nice weekend.

Monday through Wednesday . The High will have finally shifted offshore by Monday and some moisture will start to return as southerly flow increases. Guidance has slowed a bit with the arrival of the next storm system (with some lingering discrepancies among individual models), delaying it until Monday night or Tuesday. The thermal profiles do not support much chance of significant wintry precipitation with this system so at the moment think this will be primarily a rain event (with the most likely time for steady rain being Tuesday). There is the potential for a secondary system Wednesday into Thursday of next week but details are lacking at this time.

Temperatures will likely be quite warm on Monday and Tuesday with highs generally in the 50s (with some potential for 60s even), before cooling off a bit on Wednesday behind the cold front. Of note there is a pretty strong signal in the ensemble guidance for a period of colder temperatures late next week but specific details are naturally lacking.

AVIATION /15Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Rest of Today . VFR conditions expected with mid and high clouds early, with some lower ceilings (but still VFR) moving in late this afternoon. Winds will generally be NW-N around 5 kts. High confidence.

Tonight . VFR with ceilings clearing out through the first half of the night. N/NE winds around 10-15 kts expected.

Outlook .

Friday-Sunday . VFR with North-Northwest winds 5 to 10 knots Friday becoming westerly 10 kts on Saturday, and then southwesterly 5-10 kts on Sunday. Winds may become light and variable overnight each day. High confidence.

Monday . Mainly VFR. A chance of rain in the afternoon. South wind 5 to 10 knots. High confidence.

MARINE. Seas will generally be 2 to 3 ft through most of the day with northerly winds 5-15 kts.

Behind a cold front this evening northerly winds should increase to sustained 20-25 kts with gusts up to 30kts while seas will increase to 4-6 ft by Friday morning.

Outlook .

Friday . SCA conditions are expected through the early afternoon Friday after which time winds and seas should dip below SCA criteria.

Friday night through Monday . Sub-SCA conditions expected through the period with seas generally running 2-3 ft and gusts 20 kts or less.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . None. NJ . None. DE . None. MD . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory from midnight tonight to 4 PM EST Friday for ANZ452>455. Small Craft Advisory from midnight tonight to noon EST Friday for ANZ430-431-450-451.

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.
