Synopsis
High pressure will build in briefly today. Several weak
disturbances will affect the area from late tonight into the
weekend, followed by high pressure early next week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 645 am thurs... Mostly clear skies currently with clouds
encroaching from the west and south. Temperatures have fallen
into the low 50s inland this morning, with upper 50s to low 60s
present near the coast. Light northerly winds are seen just to
the north and west of the cwa, indicating that the dry
front wind shift will be here soon. Soon after, high pressure
will briefly build into the area, and winds will shift to the
east. This shift, combined with the seas breeze will enable
showers to break out along the hwy 17 corridor from late morning
into the afternoon. Have chance and slight chance pops for
these areas as a result. Temperatures will be warm again today,
and climb into the mid to upper 70s away from the coast, with
upper 60s to low 70s near the waters.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Friday
As of 320 am thurs... A dry evening is expected, as any showers
will dissipate after the afternoon hours. However, an
approaching shortwave trough and surface low moving up the spine
of the appalachians will bring showers into the region by early
tonight. Have chance pops initially tonight, which then
increase to likely overnight, as more widespread showers move
in. Scattered thunderstorms are also possible, as higher cape
air advects into the region when winds become southerly after
midnight. Low temperatures will again be mild with cloud cover
and showers, mostly in the upper 50s to low 60s.

Long term Friday through Wednesday
As of 330 am Thursday... Models remain in decent agreement during
period with several disturbances moving through Friday into
Saturday, followed by upper low finally moving across to NE of
area late Sunday into early Monday. After brief cooling trend,
heights building surface and aloft will result in warming trend
tue-wed.

Friday into Saturday... Dampening short wave will be lifting n
of area early Friday with lingering scattered shower isolated
tstm threat over NE half of area in the morning. Approaching
elongated shortwave trough will produce isolated convective
threat over western and northern sections in afternoon and all
areas Fri night. Models have trended drier for Saturday with
shortwave moving off coast early and have dropped pops given
limited moisture and lift. Guidance has trended warmer for max
temps both days and raised highs to near 80 inland sections.

Saturday night through Wednesday... Dry cold front will move
through Sat night followed by initial surge of CAA late sat
night into Sunday. Then strong but dry upper trough associated
with upper low will move through Sunday evening, resulting in
secondary CAA surge late Sun night into Mon morning. Cooling
trend will be short-lived as heights will be building quickly
mon night into Tuesday with upper ridge extending over area from
s-sw. No precip expected through the period and main focus will
be temp forecast with readings 5-10 degs below normal for sat
night through Mon night, then moderating to above normal
midweek. It is noted that ECMWF mos is indicating min temps in
mid to upper 30s for Monday morning while GFS mos supports lower
40s.

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.
