137 am edt Sun mar 24 2019

Short term (today-Monday)
High pressure to the north shifts east today to over the
atlantic. Winds will shift to the E SE and be light enough
for a sea breeze to develop this afternoon. A low pressure
system will move east through the SE us but remain to the
north of the state through Monday, with weak high pressure
continuing to ridge across the state. Highs will be in the
upper 70s to lower 80s each afternoon, with lows tonight in
the lower to mid 50s north, to the upper 50s to mid 60s
central and south.

Long term (Monday night-Saturday)
The cold front associated with the low pressure system to
the north eventually moves through the local area Monday
night Tuesday, but is expected to remain mostly dry. A
secondary system and upper shortwave will then move into the
area Tuesday night Wednesday, with a shower or two possible
with it. This also creates a tight pressure gradient just
behind it, with winds increasing for Wednesday as it shifts
off to the east and high pressure to the north builds down
across the area. Cooler and drier air will move in and winds
will remain elevated through Thursday. Winds then subside a
bit through the rest of the period as temperatures and
moisture moderate. Temperatures fall below normal Tuesday
night and continue below to near normal through Thursday
night. Temperatures rise back above normal then Friday
through the end of the period.

Aviation
Vfr conditions are expected through the period, with a light
e SE flow turning onshore near the coast in the afternoon
and increasing to 8-10kts, then becoming light and variable
again after 01-02z.

Marine
High pressure will be in place across the waters through
Monday keeping winds light with a weak sea breeze near the
coast possible in the afternoons. A dry cold front will
then move through the area Monday night Tuesday, and another
system will move through the area Tuesday night Wednesday,
increasing winds and seas to near SCA levels over the waters
as the pressure gradient tightens behind it. High pressure
will build into the area behind that system and keep the
stronger winds and higher seas in place through the rest of
the period.

Fire weather
No concerns. Afternoon humidities are not expected to fall
below 35 percent this afternoon, and humidities will
gradually increase through the next few days.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
