835 pm edt Mon may 29 2017

Update
Isolated to scattered convection looks like it will remain north
of the area for the remainder of the evening hours. Guidance
indicates that some fog is possible late tonight, although some
clouds may tend to keep the fog on the patchy side.

Prev discussion [751 pm edt]
Near term [through tonight]
Latest visible satellite imagery shows a decrease in the high clouds
across the tri-state area and with daytime heating, CU has begun to
develop. A few showers can be noted already on radar across the
florida panhandle and southeast alabama. With daytime heating and
2000-3500 j kg SBCAPE analyzed on the SPC mesoanalysis, do expect
thunderstorms later this afternoon into the evening. A strong to
severe storm still cannot be ruled out with the better chances
across southeast alabama and southwest georgia. Afternoon activity
will diminish this evening but additional convection will push into
the western portion of the CWA early Tuesday morning ahead of a
shortwave moving along the gulf coast.

Lows tonight will remain above average with lows in the lower 70s
inland to mid 70s along the coast.

Short term [Tuesday through Wednesday night]
A stagnant upper level low over the hudson bay will drive the
weather across the eastern u.S. For much of the next week. A series
of shortwaves of varying intensity will rotate around the periphery
of this low, likely remaining north of the area. High pressure will
remain centered off to the west, with southerly flow continuing to
advect warm, moist air into the region through the period. Though
there will be little in the way of forcing, scattered showers and
thunderstorms are expected each day, with pops generally in the 20
to 40% range. Even with increase cloud cover, hot and humid
conditions are expected through the period. Afternoon highs will
range from the upper 80s to low 90s, with overnight lows in the 60s.

Long term [Thursday through Monday]
Active weather will continue through the long term period as the
aforementioned upper low will remain in place across eastern
canada. Surface high pressure will remain centered east of the
area, continuing to advect moisture into the region, fueling
scattered showers and storms through the end of the week. There
remains a strong signal in guidance in a broad shortwave trough in
the southern stream of the jet pulling abundant moisture into the
region by the latter part of the week and into the weekend. This
will yield increase rain chances across the entire region during
this time frame. Afternoon high temperatures will generally run in
the upper 80s to low 90s and overnight lows in the upper 60s and
lower 70s.

Aviation [through 00z Wednesday]
Ifr to lifr CIGS may develop overnight with guidance showing the
best chances at ecp, tlh and vld. These same locations may also
experience MVFR to ifr vsbys in fog. All locations return toVFR
shortly after sunrise with a chance of an afternoon shower or
thunderstorm. The best chance for seeing any convection will be at
dhn and aby.

Marine
Generally west to southwesterly winds between 10 and 15 knots will
prevail each afternoon with seas of 1 to 3 feet. Wind and chop will
be locally higher near the coast with the development of the daily
seabreeze. Chances for showers and thunderstorms will increase by
late week.

Fire weather
Very light transport winds Wednesday afternoon may lead to
critically low afternoon dispersion values. Otherwise, there are no
other fire weather concerns at this time.

Hydrology
Shower and thunderstorm activity will remain scattered through at
least Thursday. Flooding is not expected with any of this activity
given the current river and stream levels across the region. More
widespread rain chances will be possible late this week and into the
weekend.

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.
