Philadelphia Area Forecast Discussion

The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG,
KILG, KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.

Tonight...VFR conditions continue tonight. Northwest winds
diminish after sunset and become light and variable for most

Monday...VFR conditions continue, although clouds increase from
south to north during the day. Light and variable winds early
become northwest, then northeast during the day, with speeds
around 5-10 knots.


Monday night and Tuesday...Onset of precip still looks to be
late evening over the Delmarva as rain. By late Monday night and
Tuesday morning, widespread MVFR/IFR conditions likely from
KPHL/KPNE southward. There is high uncertainty as you go
farther north toward ABE regarding if snow will make it that
far north with a sharp cutoff in precip expected. For MIV and
ACY, a considerable amount of mixing of rain, snow and perhaps
sleet is likely while snow is favored farther northward toward
PHL. NE winds 10-20 kt with gusts 25-35 kt (higher end of range
near the coast). Moderate confidence.

Tuesday night through Wednesday night...Additional precip is
possible, mainly snow (except along the coast). Confidence in
precip occurring is moderate near the coast and decreases
farther inland. MVFR or IFR conditions would be possible if snow
reaches the terminals but confidence is low at this point.
Gusty N-NE winds expected, especially near the coast.

Thursday...VFR. NW winds gradually relax. High confidence.

Friday...VFR. NW winds. Moderate confidence.

SigWx Prog Charts

Ever have problems finding the correct 12-hour/24-hour prog maps to use? They are released approximately every 6 hours, but you need to know which ones are the most current, and which 24 hour maps are replaced by 12 hour maps (which are based on more recent data). The following takes out the guesswork and arranges the 12 and 24 hour maps in a "best of" sequence for your convenience and ignores the out-of-date 24 hour maps.

Disclaimer - the information above is only intended to supplement a pilot's official weather briefing. Be smart and always get an official weather briefing. From fltplan.com: When planes crash, both the FAA and NTSB go looking for a wide spectrum of information, including what kind of flight planning and weather information were obtained by the PIC. Unfortunately in some cases, the pilots have not documented that they indeed did check the weather or performed adequate preflight planning for their flight. When we say 'documented', we are referring to using a source of weather and notams that keeps a record of your weather requests and preflight planning (such as FltPlan.com, Duats, or FSS does).
