&& .SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM WEDNESDAY/... High pressure remains in control of the weather tonight across the region. Skies remain mostly clear and winds will become light and variable or calm for most places. This will allow for temperatures to cool once again to near or slightly below normal for most places. We maintain the Frost Advisory for portions of the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey as temperatures there may cool enough for some areas of frost to develop. Portions of northern New Jersey and northeast Pennsylvania may stay just warm enough for only patchy frost to develop in the isolated coolest spots. && .LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... A prolonged period of dry weather is on tap for long term as high pressure builds east and remains in control of the weather. Temperatures will gradually warm up, and will end up being above normal for the end of the week and into the weekend. High pressure will be centered south of the Delmarva Peninsula on Wednesday. Return flow sets up behind the high, allowing high temperatures to warm up by about 10 degrees compared to Tuesday, and highs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s. The high moves offshore on Thursday, and then another area of high pressure will become entrenched over the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast U.S. for the weekend. Highs will gradually rise into the low to mid 70s, and overnight lows will be in the 40s to low 50s. High pressure moves offshore on Monday. A cold front approaches late in the day. && .AVIATION /14Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.
