Synopsis
An upper level trough will move off the mid-atlantic coast this
evening. Weak high pressure will build into the southeast on
Friday and Friday night. A warm front will develop across the
appalachians and extend into north carolina and virginia
through the weekend.

Near term through Friday
As of 955 pm Thursday...

a mid-upper low centered near the mid-atlantic coast will continue
to lift northeastward and away from the area overnight. Given this
along with the main trough axis now to the east of the area expect
dry conditions for the rest of the night. Thus, expect clearing
skies overnight with a cooler and drier air mass in place for
tonight. Expect we will maintain a wsw to southwesterly breeze
overnight as the mslp gradient should continue to remain somewhat
tight. Given this expect temps will fall into the 50s overnight at
most spots, with a few locations across the southeastern reaches of
the area only bottoming out near 60.

Ridging and drier airmass on Friday will support clear to scattered
clouds with MAX temperatures 80 to 85.

Short term Friday night through Saturday night
As of 430 pm Thursday...

the mid and upper level low over new england at the start of the
period will depart as the upper level flow over the mid-atlantic
becomes more westerly Friday night as an upper level ridge
develops across the northern gulf of mexico. Increasing mid and
and high level moisture will result in some high cloudiness.

Lows will range in the lower to mid 60s.

A general westerly to west-northwesterly flow aloft is expected
for Saturday and Saturday night across the mid-atlantic. A good
warm advection pattern will develop across the deep south and
southeast. This will result in the development of a warm front
that extends from the southern appalachians into the va and nc
and subsequent scattered convection. The best chance of
thunderstorms will be across the northeast half of the cwa,
primarily Saturday afternoon and evening. It will be noticeably
warmer and a bit more humid with highs in the mid 80s to lower
90s across the southeast. Lows will range in the mid 60s to near
70.

Long term Sunday through Thursday
As of 430 pm Thursday...

a ridge aloft across the northern gulf of mexico will shift east
and off the southeast coast by Wednesday and Thursday. A mid and
upper level closed low over central canada will slowly move
southeast into the great lakes region by the middle of the week
with a trough axis pushing east toward the coast. A weak cold
front will approach the region late Sunday and drop into the
region on Monday supporting scattered, mainly afternoon or
evening convection. It will be muggy with highs will range in
the mid 80s to near 80 both days with lows in mid 60s to lower
70s.

Another cold front will approach the region on Tuesday, move
across the region on Wednesday and linger around the area on
Thursday. This should result in a trend toward slightly cooler
and less humid conditions as we head toward the middle of the
work week. Scattered storms expected on Tuesday afternoon and
evening will lead to drier conditions on Wednesday and perhaps
Thursday too. Highs will range in the lower to mid 80s with lows
in the 60s. &&

Aviation 00z Friday through Tuesday
As of 815 pm Thursday...

trof axis has pivoted across the area this evening as the upper low
lifts out of the great lakes. Only a few showers linger in the
northeast, but the area should be clear of precip by 03z, with
mostly clear skies by midnight.VFR conditions tomorrow, with
westerly winds picking up in the mid morning to 10-12 knots with
gusts to around 20 knots.

Outlook: dry westerly flow withVFR conditions are expected through
Saturday. A backdoor cold front may sag far enough south to trigger
showers and storms Sunday, mainly across the northern tier. Will
have a better chance of mainly late day convection Monday into
Monday night as a cold front approaches from the west.VFR is
expected later Tuesday into Wednesday as weak high pressure builds
over the area.

Rah watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
