401 pm cdt Wed mar 20 2019

Near term now through Thursday A couple of dry cold fronts
will move south across the area during the near term period,
mainly acting only as to reinforce the cool dry air over the
region. Will see an increase in mid upper level clouds with
tonights frontal passage, especially up over counties, but no
precipitation is expected. The second weak front will be moving
south across our area by the end of the day Thursday, again with
no precipitation expected and few clouds. Light and somewhat
variable wind this evening becoming light to ocnly moderate
northwest overnight and on Thursday. Mild temperatures continue
with lows tonight in the mainly in the 40s (except a few low 50s
along the immediate beaches) and highs on Thursday in the upper
60s to lower 70s across the entire area. 12 ds

Short term Thursday night through Saturday night A high pressure
ridge will drift east across the forecast area during the short
term period. No rain, mostly clear skies and mild temperatures are
expected. Highs both Friday and Saturday primarily in the 70s.

Lows Thursday night ranging from low 40s interior to mid 40s coastal,
moderating slightly Friday and Saturday nights. By Saturday night,
look for lows to be ranging from the mid 40s interior to the low mid
50s coastal. 12 ds

Long term Sunday through Wednesday The next chance for showers
and thunderstorms looks to come Monday and Tuesday of next week.

Guidance still somewhat divergent as as storm system develops over
the eastern plains and the mississippi river and moves east across
our area Monday through Tuesday. As was the case the previous
forecast cycle, the GFS is advertising a more progressive, less
organized system, bringing isentropic upglide rain-showers to the
forecast area by early Monday. The ECMWF is advertising a slower,
more organized passage, bringing rain to the forecast area late
Monday into Monday night. Both models have been consistent enough
over the past several days however that a early "Monday through
late Tuesday" time frame seems the most reasonable time for
showers and thunderstorms over our area in association with the
system. Too early to talk about potential of any severe weather
with this system, but if something closer to the ECMWF verifies it
may have to be considered. By Tuesday night both major model
solutions have the system moving on off to the east of the area
with showers and storms ending. High temperatures Sunday and
Monday in the 70s, falling into the 60s Tuesday and Wednesday in
the wake of the front. Overnight lows in the 50s Sunday and Monday
nights, cooling to the 40s most areas by Tuesday night behind the
front. 12 ds

Marine Winds have become more light and somewhat variable over
most of the marine area this afternoon as high pressure to the
north has shifted east into the western atlantic. A light to moderate
northwesterly wind develops this evening and overnight as a cold
front approaches from the northwest and moves across the coastal
waters late tonight. A light to moderate northwest to north wind
flow then persists across the marine area into Friday night, then
becomes more east to southeasterly on Saturday. A light to moderate
onshore flow then continues early next week as a cold front approaches
the area as another cold front moves in from the west on Monday
and continues across the marine area Monday night or Tuesday. A
stronger offshore flow and building seas expected by the middle
part of next week in the wake of the front. 12 ds

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.
