Synopsis
High pressure will be over the region through the end of the week
allowing for above normal temperatures. The ridge of high pressure
will strengthen further over the weekend into early next week,
leading to near-record high temperatures over the memorial day
holiday weekend.

Near term until 6 am Thursday morning
Showers have developed across the area, mainly north of i-20.

Main concern with cells which develop into thunderstorms will be
ability to reach the dry air aloft and create strong and gusty
winds. However, with loss of daytime heating, the threat of
thunder is also diminishing. Have remained with slight chance
to chance pops through this evening. A few showers could remain
into early tonight as remaining outflow boundaries could
intersect and initiate new cells. Overnight lows still expected
to be in the upper 60s to around 70.

Short term 6 am Thursday morning through Friday night
A strong upper level ridge over the region will drift a bit to our
west Thursday into Friday. Weak short wave energy will pass to our
north on Thursday. The majority of the guidance continue dry
conditions across the midlands and csra. The main weather story will
be above normal temperatures. Afternoon highs in the low to mid 90s
Thursday will warm to the mid and upper 90s Friday as winds become
downslope and 850 mb temperatures around +16c +17c warm to +18c +20c
on Friday. Nighttime lows will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Long term Saturday through Wednesday
Little change in the long term thinking. The main concern
will be the very hot temperatures, with near record or record
highs each afternoon through the middle of next week.

With both surface and strong upper ridging building into the region,
temperatures are expected to climb into the mid upper 90s with
possibly some the low 100s in some locations each afternoon.

The strength of the ridge is expected to keep shower and
thunderstorm activity suppressed. Because of the dry
conditions, light winds and lack of humidity, heat indices
(apparent temperatures) may actually be a few degrees cooler
than the actual temperatures.

Aviation 01z Thursday through Monday
Vfr conditions expected through the evening hours but then MVFR
or possibly ifr stratus is possible late tonight into early
Thursday.

Afternoon convection developed along a surface boundary over the
midlands but is waning with the loss of heating with only a few
lingering showers around the area. The combination of convective
outflow and sea breeze has resulted in southeasterly winds over
10 knots cae cub ogb to start the period but these winds should
subside as well into the evening hours.

The challenge for tonight will be possibility of stratus fog
development. Abundant low level moisture trapped beneath a
developing subsidence inversion likely will result in stratus
clouds developing late tonight after 06z. MOS guidance and sref
data suggest MVFR or possibly ifr stratus forming at all
terminals by 08z-10z and lingering through 13z-14z. Fog is a bit
more challenging due to a 20-25 knot low level jet forecast so
leaning against the fog restrictions. Otherwise, winds will
become light and variable to calm near sunrise and then pick up
from the south around 5 to 7 knots after 15z.

Building upper ridge on Thursday and dry air mass should limit
convection.

Extended aviation outlook... Late night early morning
fog stratus possible along with isolated afternoon evening
thunderstorms through Monday.

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.
