Synopsis
Low pressure and a cold front will move through this evening.

Several weak disturbances will affect the area from late Thursday
into the weekend. High pressure will build in by early next week.

Near term until 6 am Thursday morning
As of 8 pm wed... Isolated to scattered showers continue across
the area, mainly north of highway 70. Could see isolated thunder
over the next hour or so but generally seeing storms weakening
with loss of sfc heating. Expect showers to continue to diminish
this evening with dry conditions expected overnight. Light sw
winds will switch NW behind frontal passage and expect winds to
decouple inland after midnight and could see patchy light fog
develop late. Lows expected in the low mid 50s interior to upper
50s beaches.

Short term 6 am Thursday morning through 6 pm Thursday
As of 3 pm wed... Weak high pres ridges offshore of the waters
on Thursday, with NW flow veering around to the east by
afternoon. Lingering low lvl moisture in place and the weak
onshore flow may spark off some isolated showers by afternoon
west of highway 17. Otherwise, pleasant day on tap with partly
sunny skies and highs in the 70s.

Long term Thursday night through Wednesday
As of 330 am Wednesday... Models have come into better agreement
with handling of disturbances for Thu night and Friday and again
Saturday, thus increased forecast confidence with this issuance.

Area will be in-between systems Thursday, then dampening short
wave and associated relatively weak surface reflection will
affect area Thu night into Friday, with main threat of precip
late Thu night. Another short wave trough will move through fri
night into Saturday with main energy remaining north and south
of area. Main eastern u.S. Upper trough will finally move
through north of area late Sunday, followed by ridging surface
and aloft Sun night into Tuesday.

Thursday into Saturday... Thursday looks mainly dry with just
slight chance of showers inland with heating in afternoon.

Dampening short wave will move across SW to NE inland of area
thu night into early Friday with models in better agreement on
weak surface low moving across inland as well, pulling a weak
front through Fri night. Models do hint at possible NW and se
split of precip with this system late Thu night, thus kept pops
at 40% for now. Will have chance pops continuing eastern
sections Fri morning with just slight chance inland, then
flipping to 30% inland 20% coast during afternoon with weak
frontal boundary approaching. With main energy splitting north
and south of area with next shortwave Fri night and Saturday,
models have trended drier that period but still enough support
for slight chance pops. Temps near normal during period with
lows mainly in 50s and highs 65-70 coast and 70-75 inland.

Saturday night through Tuesday... No precip expected through
period. Upper trough passage and high pressure building in from
nw will result in temps cooler than normal Sat night into mon
night, then warming Tuesday with ridging aloft. Lows mainly
45-55 Sat night through Mon night with highs Sunday and Monday
from mid 60s to lower 70s. Highs Tuesday around 70 coast and mid
to upper 70s inland.

Aviation 00z Thursday through Monday
Short term through Thursday ...

as of 8 pm wed... PredVFR through most of the TAF period but
could see patchy light fog develop late. Isolated showers
across rtes will diminish over the next couple hours with loss
of surface heating. Light calm winds inland and temps
approaching cross-over temps could bring patchy light fog at the
terminals late tonight early Thu morning, generally between
8-12z. Guidance suggesting mainly MVFR vsbys but could see brief
period lower.VFR conditions expected Thursday with isolated
showers possible in the afternoon.

Long term Thursday night through Monday ...

as of 330 am Wednesday...VFR expected most of period. Brief
sub-vfr possible with scattered showers Thu night into Friday
and isolated activity Friday night into Saturday.

north of hatteras but still seeing 15-20 kt offshore southern
waters. Winds will continue to diminish overnight and expect to
be N NW around 10 kt or less Thursday morning, veering to E se
Thursday afternoon. Seas around 6-9 ft this evening will
gradually subside to 4-6 ft by Thursday morning and 3-5 ft by
the afternoon.

Long term Thursday night through Sunday ...

as of 330 am Wednesday... Low pressure will move across inland
areas will result in SW winds 15-20 kt late Thu night into
Friday. A weak front will result in another brief wind shift
late Fri night into Saturday, then a stronger front will move
through Saturday night followed by a northerly surge of 15-20 kt
winds Sunday.

Lingering elevated seas will finally subside below 6 ft during
the day Thursday, but will build again to near 6 ft outer
southern and central waters late Thu night into Friday with
increasing SW winds. Seas then gradually subsiding to around 3
ft by late Saturday, but building to 4-5 ft again Sunday with
northerly wind surge.

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.
