357 pm cdt Tue mar 19 2019

Near term now through Wednesday A surface high pressure ridge
to the north of the forecast area will shift east through the near
term period and be off the southeast atlantic coast by the end of
the day on Wednesday. During the same time period, a weak cold front
currently organizing over the plains states will move to the
southeast and be approaching our forecast area by early Wednesday
evening. With this, winds that have been primarily moderate out of
the northeast today will become lighter and more east to
southeasterly tonight into early Wednesday before a light offshore
flow develops by the end of the day. May see a slight increase
in high clouds on Wednesday as the front approaches, but still
mostly sunny skies expected. Low dewpoints, ranging from the mid 20s
to mid 30s will continue through most of the period, and with
the extremely dry low to mid layers of the atmosphere we still
do not expect any rainfall with this frontal passage. Lows tonight
ranging from the mid upper 30s over northern interior zones, and in
the low to mid 40s further south, with the warmest temperatures
along the immediate coast. A little warmer on Wednesday with daytime
highs in the upper 60s far northern zones, but in the lower 70s
elsewhere (except along the beaches where highs will likely remain
in the mid upper 60s). 12 ds

Short term Wednesday night through Friday night A weak front
moves through Wednesday night. Only an increase in clouds is
expected, due to the lack of moisture return. A dry northwest
flow will follow in the wake of the front as high pressure builds
into the area. Highs in the upper 60s to around 70 can be expected
with lows in the low to mid 40s inland to near 50 along the coast. 13

Long term Saturday through Tuesday A mild and dry pattern
will continue through Saturday. A chance of rain returns
to the area Sunday afternoon as a southerly return flow develops
and a frontal system approaches from the southern plains. A
developing southwesterly flow aloft will open the door for minor
shortwave troughs moving across the region to potentially generate
some spotty shower activity Sunday afternoon and Sunday night.

Increased shower and thunderstorm activity may develop Monday
afternoon into Monday night in advance of an eastward moving cold
front. 13

Marine A surface high pressure ridge to the north of the
marine area today will shift east of the south atlantic
coast by the end of the day on Wednesday, as a weak cold
front approaches from the northwest. With this, the moderate
wind flow that has been primarily out of the northeast today will
become lighter and more east to southeasterly tonight into early
Wednesday, before a light offshore flow develops just ahead of the
front late Wednesday into Wednesday evening. By early Thursday the
front will have moved across the marine area, with a stronger
northwesterly wind flow, and building seas developing. At least
exercise caution conditions during the mid to late part of the
week behind the front, and will monitor for the possibility
of a small craft advisory. Light to moderate winds expected late
week into the weekend, but becoming more southeasterly. 12 ds

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
