Generally weak to moderate northeasterly flow will develop Sunday and Monday as surface high pressure slides into the region. More moderate north to northeasterly flow is expected on Tuesday.

Updated for the 18z aviation discussion.

Low level clouds continue to erode with vct the only site in MVFR
status as of writing. Will expect vct to reachVFR within the
hour.VFR expected through the evening. CIGS will lower to
MVFR ifr levels tonight, with lifr likely late in the night for
cigs and vsbys. The exception lies with lrd whereVFR will most
likely remain through much of the TAF period except for a brief
period around daybreak (12z-15z) when CIGS and lower vsbys may
form. Improvements to vsbys and CIGS then expected toward and
after 16z.

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.
