Synopsis
A backdoor cold front will push south into the region today,
then quickly retreat north Tuesday, with very hot temperatures
expected across the area through at least the middle of the
week. A cold front is expected to move into the area Friday.

Near term today
As of 645 am mon... Latest sfc analysis shows high pressure in
control, with front moving through central va, as strong
ridging continues aloft. The backdoor cold front will push south
through most of the region this afternoon and early evening.

Once again overall lack of forcing and moisture aloft should
limit convection this afternoon. But did increase pops slightly
across the NE portions of the area, where cams show isolated to
widely scattered showers and storms developing this afternoon,
with better convergence from the frontal boundary and seabreeze.

Will have decent temp gradient today with NRN coast reaching 80
to 85 with developing onshore flow, while SW tier should see
some upr 90s. Dewpts progged to drop in aftn inland keeping
apparent temps mainly AOB 100 degrees. Some temps will be close
to records today. See climate section below for details.

Short term tonight
As of 230 am mon... The backdoor front across the southern
portions of the forecast area this evening should gradually lift
back north late tonight and early Tuesday morning. Isolated
showers TSTM will still be possible across the northern areas
early evening as weak impulses continue to move through the flow
aloft, with chances waning with loss of heating. Overnight lows
in the upper 60s to mid 70s.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
As of 300 am Monday... Upper ridging over the southeast coupled
with surface high pressure offshore will bring hot and mainly
dry conditions through much of the work week. The ridge breaks
down late in the week with a frontal system approaching from the
bringing increasing chances of showers and thunderstorms Friday
into the weekend.

Tuesday through Thursday... Upper ridging centered over the
southeast through the period with hot and dry conditions
prevailing. Cannot rule out a isolated pulse shower or
thunderstorm along the sea breeze through peak heating with a
moist and unstable airmass in place, but subsidence beneath the
ridge will suppress most convection and limit the strength of
any storms that do develop.

The main story this week will be the hot temps with 850mb temps
around 17-20c, possibly peaking as high as 23c Wednesday as
fcst in the 00z ecmwf. Highs expected in the mid to upper 90
inland to mid to upper 80s beaches on Tuesday. The heat peaks
wed with highs around 100 inland to low to mid 90s beaches, then
the upper ridge begins to slide offshore Thursday with high in
the upper 90s inland to mid upper 80s along the beaches.

Friday through Sunday... The upper ridge slides offshore late in
the week with near zonal flow developing across the eastern
conus over the weekend. A dampening shortwave trough and
surface frontal boundary approach from the west bringing
increased chances of showers and thunderstorms across eastern
nc. There are some significant model differences on timing and
amount of precip, so will keep pops to slight chance or low
chance. Sunday looks to be the drier day of the weekend with the
front dissipating across the region and the shortwave moving
offshore and weak ridging building in its wake, but cannot rule
out an isolated shower or storm developing in the afternoon.

Temps will not be quite as hot as earlier in the week but still
well above average with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s
inland and mid 80s along the coast.

Aviation 12z Monday through Friday
Short term through tonight ...

as of 645 am mon... PredVFR conditions expected through the
period. A back door cold front will move south through most of
the area today, however lack of forcing and moisture should
limit convection to isolated cvrg this afternoon, and best
chance looks east of the TAF sites. Light W wsw winds this
morning, becoming NW N 5-15 kt this afternoon. May be slightly
better chances for patchy fog overnight into Tuesday morning,
but will not include in tafs at this time.

Long term Tuesday through Friday ...

as of 330 am Monday... Upper ridging will keep generally dry and
hot conditions across the area this week with predVFR
conditions expected. Cannot rule out a widely scattered shower
or thunderstorm each afternoon along the sea breeze but
coverage will be minimal. A slightly better chance of storms
comes Friday as the upper ridge pushes east and a frontal
boundary approaches from the west. Early morning fog chances
also look minimal but cannot completely rule out patchy late
night early morning fog or stratus.

Marine
Short term through tonight ...

as of 645 am mon... Latest obs show W wsw winds 5-15 kt with
seas 2-4 ft. A weak backdoor cold front will push south through
the waters this afternoon into this evening, the lift back north
late tonight and early Tuesday. Ahead of the front this morning
w wsw winds continue, then as the front pushes south through
the waters this afternoon and evening winds shift becoming nne
10-15 kt with gusts 15-20 kt behind it. Over the far southern
waters the front will likely slow and may have hard time pushing
south as sea brz develops. Front likely to push through into
the southern waters early evening, then lifts north overnight
into Tue morning. E winds 5-15 kt late tonight becoming SE 5-10
kt early Tue morning. Seas mainly 2 to 4 feet, with some 5 ft
along the outer waters. High risk of rip currents continues for
all our beaches today.

Long term Tuesday through Friday ...

as of 330 am Monday... Small craft advisory conditions possible
late Thursday into Friday.

High pressure remains centered offshore through the period. Se
winds around 5-10 kt early Tuesday veer to S around 10-15 kt by
afternoon, then becoming SW Tuesday night into Wednesday. Sw
winds increase to 15-20 kt late Wednesday through Thursday as
gradients tighten ahead of an approaching cold front, then peak
around 15-25 kt late Thursday into early Friday, then diminish
to 10-20 kt Friday. Seas expected around 2-4 ft Tuesday and
Wednesday, then build to 3-5 ft Thursday, then 4-7 ft late
Thursday into Friday, then to 3-5 ft by late Friday.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
