Marine
As of 430 pm edt Tuesday...

a warm front has been making progress northward through water
this afternoon and at 4 pm is locate near the potomac river and
stretches eastward across the DELMARVA peninsula between melfa
and wallops island. The models show that the front should
continue to the north and clear the region between 00z and 3z
wed. This will put the region in the warm sector as a cold front
is making progress through the appalachian mountains this
evening. As the pressure gradient tightens overnight expect the
south to southwest winds to increase to 15 to 20 kt over the
waters which will kick waves up to 2 to 4 ft on the bay and 4 to
6 ft over the coastal waters. The initial cold front should
slide through the waters around 12z - 15z. This will help reduce
the chance for showers and tstorms and reduce the winds below
sca levels. For now have left the SCA headlines for tonight into
Wednesday although the seas may stay up near 5 ft through wed
afternoon in the northern coastal zones.

A secondary cold front will sweep through the region on wed
evening and behind this front will be a shot of cooler and drier
air. Expect a surge of northerly winds that should reach sca
levels with winds of 15 to 25 kt Wednesday night. High pressure
will then quickly build over the region on Thursday, helping to
calm the winds and seas. This high will settle over the region
through Friday before sliding off the coast on Saturday and
allowing a light south to southwest flow to return for the
weekend.

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.
