Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 348 PM EDT Thu Jul 2 2020

SYNOPSIS. Upper low pressure across the New England waters will continue to move further offshore overnight. High pressure will be across the area tonight and Friday. A weak front will drop south across the Middle Altantic Friday night. More high pressure arrives over the weekend. Hot and humid conditions will arrive Monday and persist at least through midweek. Scattered afternoon showers are expected.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/. Isolated showers have developed over central and northern New Jersey. Given that we are now at or very near peak heating, would not expect the coverage to expand much beyond what we are currently seeing. Thus, have not gone any higher than slight chance (20%) for rain through this evening. Any showers and storms should dissipate quickly after sunset as a nocturnal inversion begins to set up and surface based instability decreases.

The mid and upper level trough will continue to shift further off shore over night, keeping us under a northwest flow pattern. Thus, dew points are unlikely to increase much from the mostly 60s that we are seeing across the area now. Temperatures overnight should be slightly above normal, with lows mostly in the 60s, expect in the urban corridor and along the shore where 70s will be possible.

SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/. Although the main mid and upper level trough will shift further off shore, a smaller embedded short wave trough is expected to propagate over the region tomorrow evening. This will be almost coincident with a cold front nudging into our region late tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow evening. As a result, showers and thunderstorms are likely to develop along and just ahead of the front. It still remains to be seen how widespread the showers and storms will be and how far south they will get before surface instability decreases and the mid and upper level short wave trough gets east of our region. At this point, it looks like the highest risk will be along and north of the Interstate 78 corridor.

As for the hazards, risk for severe storms and flash flooding is still relatively low. However, deep warm cloud layer and near normal precipitable water values mean that heavy rain will be possible. However, storms should be progressive enough to limit widespread flooding concerns. Additionally, with dry mid levels there appears to be some potential for dry air entrainment leading to downbursts/gusty winds.

Once the shortwave trough is east of our region, showers and storms should dissipate as there will be limited lift.

As for temperatures, ahead of the front, it will be likely the warmest day of the week, with highs for most of the area in the 90s. As mentioned previously, the northwesterly flow should keep dew points in the 60s, which should limit heat index values to be only a degree or two above the ambient temperature.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. The upper air pattern across the country will continue to change to feature less troughing across New England and the East coast as a ridge from the central part of the country edges towards the Ohio Valley and Middle Atlantic. Several shortwaves will move across the country arriving across the Great Lakes and Middle Atlantic. Overall, this will bring temperatures that are mostly above normal and precipitation will be showery in nature.

High temperatures will be mostly in the low to mid 90s for the area and humidity levels will be uncomfortable much of the time with dew points in the mid/upper 60s for the N/W areas and upper 60s to low 70s for Delmarva and southern NJ. Apparent temperature readings will be in the mid/upper 90s for the metro areas with heat flags being possible if higher temps/dew points are realized.

Precipitation, as it often is during summer, will be showery and favoring the afternoon and early evening time frames. Thunderstorms are possible as well with some weak shortwaves moving across the area in the Wrly/NWrly flow aloft.

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

Through this evening . Mostly VFR conditions. However, brief MVFR conditions will be possible in the vicinity of showers and thunderstorms through 00Z. The coverage of these showers and storms is expected to be very limited, so do not have enough confidence to include it in the TAFs at this time. Winds will be mostly NNW 10kt or less, except at KACY and possibly KMIV where a sea breeze will bring a shift to southerly or southeasterly. Moderate confidence on most aspects of the forecast, but low confidence that any storms will directly affect a TAF site.

Tonight . Mostly VFR conditions with light northwesterly winds. Moderate confidence.

Friday . Starting off with VFR conditions across the region and light northwesterly winds. By late in the afternoon, an approaching cold front will bring additional chances for showers and thunderstorms (and with it, risk for MVFR and even IFR restrictions). Through 00Z, these showers and storms should stay mostly north of the TAF sites, but some could get as far south as KTTN and KABE. An afternoon sea breeze could once again shift the winds at KACY to southeasterly. Moderate confidence on most aspects of the forecast, but low confidence on storms affecting any TAF sites prior to 00Z.

Outlook .

Friday night . showers and thunderstorms associated with the cold front are expected to progress further south through the evening. At this point the risk for an impact in any one location is still low as the coverage further south may be limited. After 06Z, we should have mostly VFR conditions as showers and storms dissipate. Northwesterly winds gradually shifting to northeasterly 10 kt or less through the night. Low confidence in the risk for showers and storms, but moderate confidence for the other aspects of the forecast.

Sat thru Tue . Generally VFR with a chance for afternoon and early evening showers and thunderstorms with lower CIGS/VSBYS in any rain activity. Also, patchy rural fog possible overnight.

MARINE. Winds and seas should stay below Small Craft advisory criteria through Friday night. However, gusty winds will be possible in the vicinity of stronger storms Friday afternoon and evening.

Outlook .

Sub-SCA conditions are expected much of the time with scattered showers and tstms during the afternoon and early evening hours. Seas on the ocean will be mostly 2 to 3 ft.

Rip currents . The forecasted risk of rip currents is low through Friday evening.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Astronomical high tide levels will continue to rise as there will be a full moon this weekend. The evening high tides are over a foot higher than those in the morning.

Some spotty minor flooding is possible along the New Jersey and Delaware coasts this evening, and then a developing east to northeast wind may result in more widespread minor flooding around the evening high tide both Friday and Saturday. The minor flooding could work its way up Delaware Bay and into the tidal Delaware River, as well. Issues are not anticipated with the morning high tides.

Tidal flooding is not expected on the upper eastern shore of Chesapeake Bay.

EQUIPMENT. 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 . None.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
