discussion...

fog this morning was limited to the northern half of the
area, and has dissipated already. Skies will be mostly clear
to partly cloudy today, with a moderate easterly wind. This
will allow for a warm and dry afternoon, with highs reaching
into the lower to mid 80s with some pockets of upper 80s
possible. Will update to remove the morning fog wording, but
otherwise the forecast is on track.

Aviation...

light winds will increase from the E SE through the
afternoon withVFR conditions through the period. Winds
should be strong enough to prevent a sea breeze today.

Marine...

high pressure continues across the waters for the next
several days, with an E SE flow becoming light and variable
near the coast in the afternoon. Some patchy sea fog will be
possible across the northern waters overnight. No major
changes for the update as the current forecast is on track.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
