Synopsis
High pressure will push offshore of the new england coast this
evening. Low pressure approaches from the southwest tonight
into Friday, then tracks across the local area late Fri through
Saturday. An upper level trough will remain over the area
through Sunday.

Near term until 6 am Friday morning
As of 355 pm est Thursday...

latest upper air analysis features dampening upper level low
swinging across upstate new york. To the southwest, northern
stream shortwave energy is interacting with remnant southern
stream trough, which is carving a closed upper level low over
the southern plains. In between these two features, low
amplitude shortwave ridging has thinned out clouds to some
degree, but mid-level clouds have hung on and kept temps on the
low side of temp guidance, largely in the mid to upper 40s
inland, low to mid 50s along the coast. Have noted a few light
returns on kakq radar with some very shallow overrunning along
the warm front aloft, but suspect very little if any of this
activity reached the ground (no mention in sfc obs this aftn).

Tonight...

remaining partly to mostly cloudy and dry tonight. Low pressure
over the deep south make steady progress e-ne into the lower ms
valley mid-south tonight into Friday morning, as sfc high pushes
farther offshore of the the E coast. Expect some low clouds fog
to develop late tonight and into Fri over interior va as cool
air wedge sets up inland. Meanwhile, coastal front moves inland
along the coastal carolinas. Added fog mention late tonight
into tomorrow morning, with locally dense fog a concern across
the piedmont late tonight W WAA over the lingering snow cover.

Lows tonight in the l-m30s... Except near 40f right at the coast
in SE va-ne nc.

Short term 6 am Friday morning through Sunday
As of 250 am est Thursday...

deeper layered moisture will overspread the fa on fri... As sfc
low continues to deepen and become vertically stacked by
tomorrow evening W rain developing over the area from SW to ne
from mid to late morning through the afternoon. Fog will linger
into the mid to late morning hours. The fog, followed quickly by
the rain will increase llvl moisture and help to scour out
remaining in snowpack quickly inland... As well as keep
temperatures below guidance once again. Highs Fri in the l-m40s
central W to the m50s- around 60f E and se.

Widespread ra expected Fri night into early Sat as low pressure
tracks across the tn valley... Pushing an occluded front closer
to the fa. Ra from late Fri through Fri night may be heavy at
times. Pw values quickly jump AOA 1.25-1.5" across the
area, aided by strong 40-50 kt llj. Highest QPF right now is
expected to be along and just ahead of coastal trough across
se va- NE nc... And wpc has increased area of day 2 excessive
rainfall outlook north to the ches bay. Given the QPF of
1.5-2.5", with locally higher amts, have gone with flood watch
for all communities west of the bay. Will hold off W eastern
shore, with most all snowpack melted and expected QPF within
latest ffg. Thinking is inland snowpack will help add another
factor toward more widespread areal flooding... With more
convective "flashier" threat along the coast with potential for
convective elements. Could hear a few rumbles of thunder given
strong UVV lift, but no severe parameters appear within reach at
this point. Steady or rising temperatures Fri night w
potential for areas of fg (both on land and water) returning as
dewpoints rise and WAA continues.

Models showing nebulous sfc pres pattern over the fa sat... Which
suggests keeping conditions cloudy though pops likely lower... Owing
to pcpn becoming more convective in the pseudo-warm sector.

Highs in the l50s W to the l-m60s SE va-ne nc. Showers continue
into Sunday as upper low crosses the area.

Long term Sunday night through Thursday
As of 355 pm est Wednesday...

a few showers may try to linger across the east and northeast early
Monday as low pressure departs the region. Otherwise, expect drying
conditions during the day on Monday as high pressure builds back
across the area. Monday should be relatively mild for this time of
the year with highs in the mid 50s for a good portion of the region
before stronger CAA arrives Tuesday. High pressure remains in
control through midweek with highs in the mid to upper 40s on
Tuesday and upper 40s to lower 50s Wednesday. Overnight lows will
start cold at the beginning of the week with temperatures dropping
into the 20s and 30s Monday Tuesday night, but will begin to
moderate through the remainder of the week. Another system
potentially impacts the region Thursday into Friday, bringing the
next threat for showers.

Aviation 21z Thursday through Tuesday
As of 1255 pm est Thursday...

vfr conditions across area terminals will persist through the
first half of 18z TAF forecast period. Bkn high level clouds
mixed W sct-bkn sc ac. Sse winds AOB 5 kts. Expect some
developing stratus fog after 06-08z tonight, as llvl cool air
wedge takes hold inland. Lo pres approaches from the SW Fri and
moves across the area Fri night into Sat bringing widespread ra
and degraded flight conditions Fri aftn through sat, with ifr to
MVFR CIGS likely through much of this period. An upper level
trough lingers over the area into sun, with predominateVFR
unlikely to return until late Sunday night into Monday.

Marine
As of 300 pm est Thursday...

tranquil marine conditions will remain in place through late tonight
as high pressure will continue to dominate our local weather. A slow
moving area of low pressure is progged to impact the area late fri
through this weekend. E SE winds increase to 10-15 kt during the day
on Fri before briefly increasing to 15-20 kt Fri night (highest over
the ocean) as an area of sfc low pressure develops across the
carolinas. Winds decrease and become more variable by Sat pm as the
aforementioned sfc low moves offshore and a secondary sfc low
(coupled W a closed upper low) moves over the mountains of va wv.

Winds then become more N NW by Sun aftn evening (and increase to 15-
20 kt as the secondary area of low pressure moves offshore. Winds
turn more to the NW on Mon mon night and remain in the 15-20 kt
range (with higher gusts) to start next week behind the departing
system. Have advertised 5-7 ft seas starting Friday night with seas
remaining elevated through the weekend and perhaps even Monday as nw
winds increase. Therefore, scas will likely be needed for the ocean
zones starting Friday night. Winds remain below SCA levels for the
most part this weekend. Will hold off on headlines for now as seas
not expected to build until late 3rd period (Friday night).

Hydrology
Rain will eventually pose river flood threat along
the james... Appomattox and chowan rivers late in the weekend
into early next week. Our latest multimedia briefing at
weather.Gov wakefield contains the latest information. Please
also refer to the latest river and lake summary (wbcrvdakq).

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.
