Synopsis
Cool, dry high pressure will dominate the pattern through the
weekend. Another cold front may move through the region by mid
week, followed by stronger high pressure and cool conditions
for the mid to late week.

Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
Dry high pressure will settle over the area this evening and
overnight, allowing winds to go calm in most areas away from the
coast after sunset. Clear skies will facilitate strong
radiational cooling once winds diminish. The one wildcard
tonight is the expected dewpoint recovery given fairly high
soil moisture. If surface dewpoints rise into the upper 30s to
around 40 degrees this evening, the rate of temperature fall
later tonight will be stifled. Our current low temperature
forecast shows temps bottoming out in the 33-36 degree range
across inland areas. Patchy to scattered frost is expected in
these areas so, after collaboration with our surrounding offices
we have posted a frost advisory from 8-13z.

Short term 6 am Saturday morning through Monday
Gradually increasing west-southwest upper level flow and weak
surface high pressure will prevail over the region through the
period.

Saturday: after a cold start, under abundant sunshine forecast low
level thickness values support temperatures climbing close to 30
degrees and reaching the mid 60s in most areas by afternoon. Even
though it will be a bit cooler than normal, light winds will result
in it feeling rather comfortable by afternoon, especially in the
sun. As the high starts to shift into the atlantic Saturday night,
northeast winds will keep marine influenced air close to the coast,
so inland temperatures will drop into the lower and mid 40s with
reading in the lower to mid 50s at and near the coast.

Sunday and Monday: low level marine moisture and associated clouds
will gradually increase from south to north Sunday as a coastal
trough and isentropic lift develop across the area. The greatest
concentration of cloud cover will be near the coast closer to the
trough and the best lift and it is in this area where widely
scattered showers are possible from Sunday into Monday morning.

There is low confidence in the precipitation chances at the present
time, but fairly high confidence that if showers occur they will be
quite light. By later Monday the coastal trough and associated lift
will move well northeast of the area. Highs on both Sunday and
Monday will range from the mid 60s in the north to the lower 70s in
the south.

Long term Monday night through Friday
A broad upper trough moves across the oh river valley Tuesday and
then across new england southeast canada Wednesday. At the surface,
stronger cooler high pressure builds from the northwest behind a
cold front, which moves through with little no precip. Later
Tuesday. The surface ridge remains north of the region Wednesday and
Thursday, then shifts east offshore of the mid atlantic by Friday.

The global models show a return of deep layer moisture from south to
north by Friday as the low level flow veers to southeast. Given the
uncertainty out that far, have kept low end chance pops, which also
seems to collaborate well with surrounding office. High temperatures
starting off in the mid to upper 60s Tuesday, then cooler for
Wednesday and Thursday behind the cold front, with highs generally
in the lower 60s. By Friday, temperatures moderate into the upper
60s. Low temperatures will be cool, ranging from the low 40s well
inland to around 50 closer to the coast.

Aviation 20z Friday through Wednesday
Vfr conditions will prevail through 18z Saturday.

Extended aviation outlook: brief flight restrictions will be
possible later Sunday through early Monday as a weak coastal
trough aids in the development of widely scattered showers.

Otherwise,VFR conditions are expected to prevail for both sites
through the middle of next week.

Marine
Weak offshore winds and diminishing seas tonight as high
pressure builds to the east. A tranquil weather pattern is
expected Saturday through Tuesday with increasing winds and seas
expected Tuesday night into Wednesday in the wake of a cold
front. Generally northeast winds will become north to northwest
late Sunday night or early Monday and then persist into Tuesday.

Wind speeds will be near or below 10 knots with seas generally
from 2 to 4 feet through Tuesday. A coastal trough will bring a
threat for showers in the georgia offshore waters Saturday night
and in all waters Sunday and Sunday night with a decreasing
threat Monday as the coastal trough moves away.

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.
