cold front and associated showers and thunderstorms are located
across the southeastern zones and will be for the most part exited
the area by sunrise. In the wake of the front cooler and drier air
is working into the region.

High pressure will continue to build into the region today in the
wake of a cold front that moved through the region overnight.

Resulting in cooler drier airmass with gusty north and
northwesterly winds. Tonight will be cool with radiational cooling
under clear and calm conditions.

Return flow begins on Thursday as the high shifts to the east
resulting in increasing temperatures and humidity through the
remainder of the week.

The next chance for rain comes in for the second half of the

rain chances into early next week.

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.
