Synopsis
Markedly colder air spreads across the region through this
evening, with temperatures moderating for late week into the
weekend.

Near term through tonight
Latest weather analysis reveals sfc low pressure over eastern
maine sliding toward atlantic canada. Associated sfc cold front
now well offshore of the eastern seaboard this morning. To the
south, 1026+mb sfc high pressure continues to build across the
deep south toward the tn river valley. Aloft, latest upper air
analysis shows strengthening upper trough taking on a negative
tilt, as it slides offshore of the mid- atlantic coast and lifts
across the northeast into new england. Weak shortwave ridging
on its heels bringing clearing across the region this morning.

Cold and dry today, as sfc high pressure continues to build
across the southeast. Despite westerly flow aloft, and a mainly
clear sky, afternoon high temperatures will struggle to climb
into the low to mid 30s in most spots, which represent highs
~15-20 deg below normal. Expect wind chill values to linger in
the 20s through the day with winds gusting up to 20-30 mph this
morning before gradually diminishing late.

Precip chances nudge up (slightly) tonight with the latest in a
series of clipper systems sliding from the ohio valley into the
northeast. Models remain in good agreement that this feature
will push along and north of the region, with model timing a
bit faster at 00z than 12z. Have maintained a 20% of rain snow
showers over the lwr eastern shore, mainly for a passing ra sn
shower this evening. Could see a brief flurry sprinkle farther
south into central va this evening, but have kept pops AOB 14%
with chances of measuring quite low even on cams. Otherwise,
look for an increase in clouds this aftn through evening, with
clearing late. Not quite as cold with early morning lows 25-30
inland, lower 30s SE coast.

Short term Thursday through Friday night
Mostly clear dry conditions persist for Thu with temps
moderating. Highs mainly in the mid upr 40s under a partly
cloudy sky. Early morning lows in the low to mid 20
inland... Upper 20s to low 30s at the coast.

Models are a bit flatter with the upper level flow for the
Friday system. As such, expect any significant QPF to be well
off to our north. Will hang on to a slight to low end chance pop
across the md lower eastern shore for now, but would expect any
impacts to be minimal given model trend towards a more zonal
pattern aloft. Highs upper 30s to low 40s north... 45 to 50
south.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday
High pressure builds back into the region for Saturday and
Sunday leading to dry conditions and a warming trend with
temperatures climbing into the mid to upper 40s on Saturday and
into the 50s on Sunday. Another system approaches the region
during the day on Sunday bringing another chance of rain Sunday
into Monday. Temperatures continue to moderate into early next
week with highs in the mid to upper 50s on Monday and Tuesday
and lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Aviation 08z Wednesday through Sunday
Cold front now offshore early this morning, with west-northwest
winds remaining gusty in its wake through tomorrow. Gusts of up
to 25-30 kt expected through early to mid aftn. Otherwise, expect
vfr conditions all sites through the 06z TAF period.

Outlook: expectVFR conditions to then prevail for much of the
week ahead. Some mid to high clouds expected with next clipper
to cross north of the terminals late tomorrow aftn and night.

Low chance of a few flurries at sby Wed evening. Otherwise, dry
withVFR conditions for much of the latter half of the week
into the weekend.

Marine
Gale warnings remain in place through this afternoon (4pm) due to
wnw winds remaining elevated in the wake of last evening's cold
front. Gusts between 35-40 kt will be common. Kept the local rivers
(except the lwr james) in strong SCA with gusts up to 30 kt. Seas 5-
7 ft, with 3-5 ft waves.

Expect the gales to be replaced with scas this afternoon through
midday Thursday, as the gradient relaxes a bit ahead of the
next weaker cold front approaching from the west. Some guidance
does indicate the potential for gale gusts (~35 kt) across the
outer coastal waters tonight. Confidence in this remains low at
this time. Seas build back to 5-6 ft; waves 3-4 ft.

Next cold front crosses the waters by Thursday afternoon but with
weak CAA behind it lending to sub-sca conditions through Friday.

Next system skirts the coast Friday night with SCA conditions
possible.

Tides coastal flooding
Potential exists for some low water issues during thurs tide cycles
given the gusty offshore flow (w-sw).

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.
