    The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG,
    KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.
    
    Rest of tonight...Deteriorating conditions to MVFR through the
    remainder of the night. Rain chances increase from west-
    northwest to southeast through 4 AM. Some showers ahead of the
    main area of rain have and will likely continue to move through
    the area, likely affecting KPHL, KPNE, and KTTN terminals. South
    winds 10-15 knots initially, with higher gusts up to 30 knots
    possible, especially southwest of KPHL and closer to daybreak.
    Winds should remain on the lighter side tonight from 5-10 knots
    at KRDG and KABE. Southwesterly LLWS is also present across the
    terminals tonight, generally around 45-55 knots.
    
    Thursday...IFR restrictions will continue through at least early
    afternoon, with rain (heavy at times). Southwesterly LLWS will also
    continue through the morning, being the strongest at KACY.
    Conditions are expected to improve rapidly during the afternoon with
    the passage of a cold front. VFR is possible late into the day.
    Southwest winds 10 to 20 kts with higher gusts possibly up to 40
    knots before the frontal passage. Timing of the frontal passage
    looks to be from 14-18Z across the area from west to east. Winds
    should take a more northwesterly direction after the front passes
    through.
    
    Outlook...
    Thursday night...Mainly VFR with west to northwest winds around
    or below 10 kts.
    
    Friday and Saturday...Mainly VFR conditions expected. Winds
    generally below 20 knots.
    
    Saturday night through Sunday night...A cold front may bring rain
    and/or snow showers, thus possibly lowering visibilities and
    bringing restrictions, especially at KRDG and KABE.
    
    Monday...Mainly VFR. Some MVFR possible in rain and/or snow showers.
