Marine
As of 250 pm edt Thursday...

a lot of changes across the marine area in the next 12-36 hours.

Low pressure is moving NE west of the ches bay ATTM and will cont
to move NE across the bay and ERN shore this eve then across the
nrn DELMARVA while deepening late tonite. The gusty sse winds out
ahead of the system will shift to the wnw behind the trailing cold
frontal passage this evening and diminish to under SCA levels
for a few hrs before ramping back up after midnite. Thus, sca's
cont for the ches bay and coastal waters.

Deep mixing occurs behind the system fri. Daytime heating will also
aid in the NW winds becoming rather gusty during the aftn, thus
sca's will go in effect for the currituck sound and rivers. A
front or secondary trof crosses the area Fri eve with a stronger
push of CAA behind it. Data supports gusts to gale force (35
kts) possible across the NRN coastal waters and middle ches bay,
thus have issued a gale watch for these areas. That way later
shifts can either upgrade to a gale warning or keep strong sca's
going.

Seas remain high (5-8 ft) thru Sat before subsiding Sat night.

High pressure builds in Sun and Mon with sub-sca conditions.

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.
