Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 613 PM EDT Wed Jul 8 2020

SYNOPSIS. Weak high pressure will continue to influence our weather into Thursday. Weak low pressure centered along the Carolina coast this afternoon is forecast to progress to the north. The low is expected to pass through or near our region on Friday and Friday night. A frontal boundary is anticipated to approach from the northwest on Saturday. The front is expected to move slowly through our region on Sunday and Monday before drifting away to our southeast during the middle of the new week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THURSDAY MORNING/. 600 pm update: Major changes to the forecast early this evening. Have canceled the flash flood watch, as storms across the watch area have diminished/moved south and have effectively used the available potential energy in the atmosphere today. Have also modified PoPs considerably this evening to accommodate recent radar trends. Generally, this involved lowering PoPs in the Poconos and maintaining higher PoPs between Reading and Trenton and locations just south through mid evening.

Perhaps the biggest change was to temperatures, which have been lowered substantially thanks to the convection in the Lehigh Valley and northern New Jersey this afternoon. Used the available NAM guidance in particular, as this was verifying much better than other available output. This dropped temperatures about 10-15 degrees for much of this region through the evening hours.

May add some fog mention to portions of the Lehigh Valley based on latest guidance and given the heavier precipitation today. Will make that determination in the next couple of hours.

Previous discussion .

Showers and thunderstorms have formed a broken line across northern portions of the forecast area extending from northern New Jersey to Reading, Pennsylvania. CAPE values remain reasonable for summertime from 1000 to 1500 J/kg. Cloud cover once again remained persistent this morning, lingering longer than forecast, and this likely hinder more expansive thunderstorm development for this afternoon. Nonetheless, give antecedent rains, PWAT values still near 2 inches, very weak storm motions (yet again), flooding or flash flooding remains the primary concern with these thunderstorms. Thus, a Flash Flood Watch was issued for portions of the Lehigh Valley and northern New Jersey where the greatest forcing from storm outflow is centered. 1-2 inches of rain is possible, but cannot rule out localized higher amounts in stronger storms through the late evening. Storms will struggle to push much further southward with the weak storm motions and lack of frontal forcing, thus storms should remain north of the Philly Metro, at least Center City, that is.

Convection will wane into the overnight with sunset, save for a few linger thunderstorms across Northern and Central New Jersey. Low clouds and patchy fog will once again be possible with increased moisture and light winds (similar to last night). Trying to pinpoint where exactly this occurs remains tricky business. Lows will drop into the low 70s across the region.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH 6 PM THURSDAY/. A very similar day tomorrow before the coastal storm begins to work into the region. Patchy fog is possible in the morning, with low clouds and stratus persisting into the early morning once again. Think the overall risk for showers and thunderstorms will be lower given the more robust forecast trends for the coastal storm system. Weak ridging pushes ahead of this system over our region through the early afternoon, with high temperatures forecast to reach into the upper 80s to near 90 in the urban corridor. Current forecast trends begin to push this system near our region up the Delmarva Peninsula with initial rain showers possible by late afternoon to evening starting across Delaware and Maryland late Thursday evening and working northward into the overnight. More to come on this system as it rapidly evolves and we continue to provide the latest forecast information as it becomes available.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. We continue to keep a very close eye on the low that will be approaching our region from the south on Thursday night. The guidance has been trending westward with the track, so the feature may pass over or very near our region from Friday into Friday night.

The low is not forecast to be particularly strong by the time it reaches our area, so the wind is not much of a concern. However, it will have a good deal of moisture associated with it. There is the potential for widespread heavy rain in northeastern Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. The recent heavy rainfall in parts of our region has increased our susceptibility to flooding. We will work to refine the threat area as we get closer to the event. It appears as though most of the heavy rain will lift to our north on Friday night.

A frontal boundary is forecast to approach from the northwest on Saturday and it is expected to move slowly through our region on Sunday and Monday. There will likely be enough moisture and instability during the afternoon and early evening each day to result in scattered showers and thunderstorms.

The front is anticipated to move away to our southeast on Tuesday and Wednesday. As a result, there is a decreasing chance of precipitation at that time.

The clouds and precipitation are expected to keep high temperatures in the upper 70s to the middle 80s on Friday. Maximum readings should favor the middle 80s to the lower 90s from Saturday through Wednesday.

AVIATION /22Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Into this evening . VFR across most of the terminals with showers and thunderstorms through the remainder of the afternoon and into the evening at KRDG and KABE. These showers may work far enough south to impact KPNE and/or KTTN, but confidence isn't particularly high at this point. Southerly winds from 5 to 10 knots, with occasional transitions to southwesterly through 22Z. Moderate confidence.

Tonight . VFR across the southern terminals that remain rain- free through the evening, with MVFR conditions lingering across terminals that see rain. Low clouds and patchy fog possible again tonight with CIGs dropping to MVFR or even IFR, likely similar to last night. Light and variable winds with a southerly prevailing direction less than 5 knots. Moderate confidence.

Thursday . Sub-VFR CIGs lifting to VFR in the morning with a few afternoon showers and thunderstorms bringing restrictions. East- southeasterly winds from 5 to 10 knots and gusts to 15 knots. Moderate confidence.

Outlook .

Thursday night . VFR possibly lowering to MVFR as showers and thunderstorms spread northward into our region. Southeast to northeast wind 5 to 10 knots. Medium confidence.

Friday . MVFR/IFR in showers and thunderstorms. The rain will be heavy at times. Northeast wind around 10 knots, becoming variable. Medium confidence.

Friday night . MVFR/IFR in showers and thunderstorms with a decreasing chance of rain overnight. Variable wind 5 to 10 knots, becoming northwest. Medium confidence.

Saturday . Mainly VFR. A chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. West to southwest wind 5 to 10 knots. Medium confidence.

Saturday night . Mainly VFR. A chance of evening showers and thunderstorms. Late night visibility restrictions are possible. Variable wind 6 knots or less. Medium confidence.

Sunday . Mainly VFR. A chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. West to southwest wind 5 to 10 knots. Medium confidence.

Sunday night . Mainly VFR. A chance of evening showers and thunderstorms. Late night visibility restrictions are possible. Variable wind 6 knots or less. Medium confidence.

Monday . Mainly VFR. A chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. West to southwest wind 5 to 10 knots. Medium confidence.

MARINE. Sub-advisory conditions expected through the overnight with south-southeasterly winds from 5 to 10 knots with gusts from 15 to 20 knots. Waves 3 feet or less.

Thursday . Sub-advisory conditions continue as winds turn easterly from 10 to 15 knots. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms possible, especially across the southern Atlantic Waters late in the day. Seas 3 feet or less.

Outlook .

Thursday night . A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for our ocean waters from Brigantine and Atlantic City southward and for Delaware Bay for wind gusts around 25 knots.

Friday . A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for our ocean waters for wind gusts around 25 knots and wave heights building to 5 to 7 feet.

Friday night . Wave heights on our ocean waters may remain around 4 to 6 feet.

Saturday through Monday . No marine headlines are anticipated.

Rip Currents .

There is a low risk for the development of dangerous and life threatening rip currents through tonight with a moderate risk on Thursday.

Heading into Friday, we anticipate the risk for dangerous rip currents to increase substantially. As seas build over the region, and we go through a prolonged period of longer period onshore swell, the risk for dangerous, life threatening rip currents will be at least moderate and possibly high especially for the Jersey coastline. Those with beach interests should monitor conditions closely as the development of dangerous rip currents seems quite likely based on latest trends in the forecast.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. The area of low pressure moving northward near the coast from Thursday night through Friday night is not expected to be particularly strong and it should be somewhat progressive. As a result, we are not anticipating much in the way of tidal flooding. Positive departures in excess of 2 foot are needed to produce minor flooding. It seems as though tidal departures will remain less than 2 feet at most coastal locations on Friday.

EQUIPMENT. The Reading Regional Airport (KRDG) ASOS is experiencing technical problems. Data will be missing or incomplete until further notice.

The NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards broadcast from Hibernia Park, PA (WNG704) remains off the air until further notice due to damage to the antenna during the June 3 derecho.

PHI WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . None. NJ . None. DE . None. MD . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory from 10 PM Thursday to 6 PM EDT Friday for ANZ452>455. Small Craft Advisory from 4 AM to 6 PM EDT Friday for ANZ450- 451. Small Craft Advisory from 10 PM Thursday to 10 AM EDT Friday for ANZ430-431.
