Synopsis
Offshore high pressure will dominate over the weekend into early
next week. A cold front will approach from the north mid to late
next week.

Near term /through tonight/
As of 550 pm... Isold shra inland cont to diminish in coverage and
intensity and shld be gone in next hour or so. Expect pc to mclr
skies overnight with offshore high pres producing light srly flow.

Muggy lows mainly in the low to mid 70s... With some upr 70s beaches.

Cant rule out some patchy fog late but not confident on cvrg so no
mention at this time.

Short term /Sunday/
As of 2 pm... Upr ridge rmns acrs the area with the bermuda high
ridging in at the surface with a warm and moist s-sw low lvl flow.

Convection will be limited with the upr high in place but may see
some isold convection durg the aftn acrs inland areas with the
seabreeze being the main focusing mech. Temps cont warm near 90
inland and mid 80s on the coast.

Long term /Sunday night through Friday/
As of 215 pm sat... The dominating upper level ridge will weaken as
the bermuda high continues to bring moist southerly flow and the
piedmont trough builds inland through mid week. This typical summertime
pattern and increasing precipitable water values around 2
inches... Will allow for afternoon/evening convection. Most of the
convection will mainly be along the sea breeze and piedmont trough
as these features will be the driving force. Have continued with
30/40 pops for each afternoon/evening. By mid to late
week... Models have a tail end a cold front to pass through the
northern part of the coverage area. Expecting little change to
temperatures and dew pt with this frontal boundary. By Friday... The
upper level ridge will strength once again.

Low level thickness support... High temp to be near to above normal
through the period. Expect... Highs in the mid 80s to low 90s and
lows in the 70s.

then last night however sref/narre probs not showing much. For now
will just show some MVFR late.

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.
