near term now through Sunday ... High pressure dominates through the
near term as a surface ridge remains planted over the eastern
seaboard and southeastern conus. Lows tonight continue to see a
slight warming trend due to a gradual increase in surface moisture
and a broken cirrus deck mitigating radiative cooling. Expect temps
to dip into the upper 30s inland and low to mid 40s along the coast.

Aside from the lingering cirrus, another pleasant day is in store
for Sunday, with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s and dewpoints in
the upper 40s. 49
short term Sunday night through Tuesday night ... Surface high
pressure ridging southward along the eastern seaboard will provide
seasonable temperatures and dry conditions through Monday. An
upstream positively tilted shortwave trough aloft will drive a
a weak cold front through the area by Monday night with models
projecting the potential of some spotty light shower activity.

Biggest impact from the weak frontal passage will be to trend
temperatures a few degrees cooler Tuesday and Tuesday night. 08
long term Wednesday through Saturday ... Broad high pressure on
the surface and high zonal flow aloft is expected to persist
through Wednesday night. Global spectral models continue to
advertise an upper level trough buckling the flow and moving
over texas Wednesday with a wave of low pressure on the surface
over the western gulf. Solutions vary with the surface feature...

from keeping it over the western gulf or deepening it and tracking
it eastward over the north central gulf. The latter solution
though keeps the track far enough south to keep most of the
potential rainfall over the water. Either way, potentially enough
dynamics and moisture to generate some isolated to scatter shower
activity early Thursday morning through Thursday. Another
shortwave trough aloft is then projected to bring isolated to
scattered shower activity to the area late Friday afternoon
through Saturday. 08
marine... A generally light offshore flow prevails over the marine
area through midweek. Flow strengthens and shifts to easterly late
this week in response to a developing storm system in the western
gulf. Seas remain around 1 to 2 feet through midweek, building to 3
to 5 feet late this week in response to the strengthening flow.

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.
