Discussion
Strong ridging remains in place aloft over the southeast with
surface high pressure centered just off the eastern seaboard. This
pattern featuring deep-layered ridging will really not change over
the next week or so. The main concern continues to be the heat.

Highs will be on the rise through the holiday weekend, with mid to
upper 90s expected.

The position of the surface ridge will keep a strong enough easterly
flow in place that the sea breeze will likely not propagate much
away from the coast. As the high sinks farther south through the
weekend, that easterly flow will relax a bit, which will allow the
sea breeze to move farther inland. This will keep highs down just a
bit at the beaches, not that it will really matter as it will still
be quite hot. Rain chances remain low through the next week.

Aviation
Vfr conditions are expected through the forecast period. Winds will
remain generally out of the east.

Marine
High pressure to our north will keep easterly winds in place through
the next several days. We should have one more night tonight when
winds increase to exercise caution levels due to the easterly surge,
then winds lighten up a bit for the weekend.

Fire weather
Hot and dry conditions along with high dispersions can be expected
for the next several days. Minimum relative humidity values will
bottom out between 30 and 40 percent each afternoon with no red flag
conditions anticipated. No significant fog is expected.

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.
