Short term /tonight through Wednesday night/
A weak frontal boundary continues to push south across the
forecast area this afternoon. A few showers have popped up along
and south of the front, but thunder hasn't developed yet. Do think
the coverage of storms will remain isolated/scattered and thunder
chances will remain low. A strong storm or two is possible and
severe weather is not anticipated at this time. Convection could
last into the evening hours, but should diminish with the loss of
Not completely confident that the frontal boundary will make it
south of the cwfa by tomorrow afternoon. Have left isolated pops
in the forecast, mainly along and south of the front. Since high
pressure aloft will help suppress storms, coverage should remain
isolated. Severe weather is not anticipated, and the potential for
even strong storm development will remain low.
Long term /Thursday through Tuesday/
Long term /Thursday through Tuesday/
No major changes made to the extended forecast, except for pushing
back the increasing pops on Thursday to more of a late
morning/afternoon time frame. Current forecast looks on track, with
similar discrepancies noted between extended models handling of
early next week's system. Previous forecast discussion is included.

the beginning of the long term period is characterized by more
unsettled weather. Rain chances will initially increase Thursday
especially across the eastern sections of CWA in vicinity of weak
wedge front. The main storm system then quickly encroaches on the
area from the west Thursday night into Friday bringing good shower
and thunderstorm chances area wide. The possibility for some strong
to severe thunderstorm activity remains during this time frame with
adequate shear though instability is less impressive.
Nonetheless, it is something to watch as we head from Thursday night
This storm system exits east by Saturday with a dry and warm weekend
in store thanks to upper ridging. Temperatures Saturday and Sunday
will be several degrees above average with mostly sunny skies.
Early next week will transition back into an active pattern, though
models diverge on timing and evolution of the next storm system. The
ecmwf brings the next system into the area as early as Monday while
the GFS holds off until Tuesday. Regardless, expect the brief
inactive weather this weekend to come to an end early next week.
Aviation 18z update... BknVFR CU should begin to scatter
out shortly. The main convective coverage should be south the
airfield today, but cannot rule out a brief shra/tsra but chances
are too small too mention. Winds should switch over to the east
side by early tomorrow morning. Patchy MVFR fog is possible.

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.
