Synopsis
High pressure will build in from the northwest today then slide
offshore Friday. The high will remain offshore through the
weekend with the next frontal system approaching the middle of
next week.

Near term /through today/
As of 230 am thu... Cold high pres will build in from the nw
with mainly clear skies. High temps will be well below normal
ranging from mid 40s NE cst to mid 50s s.

Short term /tonight/
As of 230 am thu... The strong high will remain centered near
the area leading to good radiational cooling with light winds
and mainly clr skies. Lows will range from around 30 cooler
inland spots to mid/upr 30s beaches.

Long term /Friday through Wednesday/
As of 230 am thu... Used an even blend of the latest GFS and
ecmwf. High pressure off the mid-atlantic coast will move east
as a cold front approaches from the west. A light south wind
Friday will push afternoon highs into the mid/upper 60s with
cooler upper 50s/lower 60s on the outer banks. Deeper southwest
flow forecast Saturday with even warmer highs reaching the
lower/mid 70s with mid 60s outer banks. The cold front
approaches from the west Sunday but deeper moisture lifts out to
the north of the area during the day so will only carry slight
chance pops. Deeper moisture in place Monday ahead of the front
so bumped up pops to 30% all areas. Afternoon highs even warmer
especially along the coastal plain with highs approaching 80.

Cooler along the south coast in the lower/mid 70s and outer
banks in the mid 60s. The front finally pushes through Tuesday
and off the coast Tuesday night. Dynamics not very impressive so
kept pops capped at 30%. Dry weather returns Wednesday with
surface ridge extending into the region from the great lakes.

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.
