Synopsis
Near record temperatures will continue into this weekend. High
pressure centered off the coast will bring warm and moist air
into region today. A cold front will cross the area Sunday into
Monday bringing a high chance of showers. Temperatures will
remain above normal next week.

Near term through tonight
Upper level ridge has shifted to the gulf of mexico northeast
across florida. Increasing southwest flow aloft today will
transport increasing moisture mainly to the northwest. Warm
advection today so near record high temperatures again today
with highs in the low 80s. Lift expected to remain mainly
northwest of the area today and soundings show mid level cap
although weaker than yesterday. Instability marginal mainly in
the upstate. Radar showing showers ahead of cold front across
eastern tennessee. Focus for showers will be to the northwest of
the area but can't rule out a light shower or two in the
piedmont later this morning or afternoon.

Abundant low level moisture may support stratus and or fog at
times. However a much stronger low level jet and high clouds
make fog less likely than the previous few nights. The hrrr
which verified well for this mornings stratus suggests only
areas of low clouds overnight and early Sunday morning. Continued
mild with low temperatures near record warmth. Any showers
expected to remain northwest of the area closer to the front.

Short term Sunday through Monday
Sunday... Low pressure will move from the northern great lakes
region into quebec on Sunday which will allow the cold front to
cross the appalachians and move into the western portion of the
forecast area. Moisture will continue to deepen on Sunday with
the chance of rain increasing. The nam ECMWF models are slower
than the GFS with the system but MOS favor high pops by late in
the afternoon. So think morning will be dry across the region
with increasing chance showers from west to east through the
afternoon into the evening. Continued with likely pops west on
Sunday closer to the frontal boundary and deeper moisture and
chance pops further east. Instability appears quite limited with
li values near 0, but cannot rule out thunder. Believe the
better chance of rain will occur Sunday night so have continued
with likely pops across the area. The pressure gradient will
tighten on Sunday ahead of the front with breezy conditions
expected. Southwesterly winds around 10 to 15 mph with gusts up
to 25 mph are expected. A lake wind advisory may need to be
considered. Temperatures on Sunday will be above normal with
highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s and lows in the upper 50s to
lower 60s.

Monday... Upper level flow remains parallel to the front early in
the day so expect front to be slow to move east of the area.

Weak low pressure tracking northeast along the boundary from the
gulf coast states will focus showers across the area as
isentropic lift is enhanced along with low level convergence.

The showers should shift to the east late in the afternoon and
early evening. Cooler due to rain but temperatures but still
above normal.

Long term Monday night through Friday
Surface high pressure will move northeastward into the mid-
atlantic states on Tuesday with dry weather and mostly sunny
skies expected across the forecast area. High pressure will
shift off the coast Tuesday night with moisture and the chance
of rain returning to the area for Wednesday. Low pressure over
the great lakes region on Thursday will bring the next cold
front into the area for the end of the work week with unsettled
weather continuing. Temperatures through the period will
continue to be above normal.

Aviation 15z Saturday through Wednesday
Restrictions continuing through the mid morning hours... Then
vfr for the remainder of the period.

Fog and stratus will remain through the mid morning
hours... Slightly longer at ogb where it will take longer to
erode.VFR conditions will prevail once the fog dissipates
through the end of the period with cumulus will developing
through the afternoon hours. Situation will change tonight as
high pressure begins pushing eastward and winds increase ahead
of the cold front. Additional cloud cover tonight will lower
potential for fog and stratus so have not mention attm.

Extended aviation outlook... Low potential for late night and
early morning fog and stratus Sunday morning. Increasing
confidence in restrictions Sunday evening through Monday and
again Wednesday as frontal systems cross the region.

Climate
Near record heat expected again today and possibly tonight.

Cae warmest high for 2 24 is 82 last set in 2017.

Cae warmest low for 2 25 is 61 last set in 1890.

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.
