Synopsis
High pressure will build into and over the region through Sunday.

Low pressure tracks from the gulf coast states northeast up along
the east coast Monday through Wednesday.

Near term through tonight
As of 1136 am edt Friday...

nudged dewpoints rh down for the aftn per latest obs and incoming
met guidance from 12z fri. Latest sfc analysis shows a cold front
pushing well offshore with ~1032 mb high pressure building east
from the upr midwest. Gusty NW winds still expected through early
aftn, mid aftn near the coast... Before CAA weakens. Temps will
average ~10 degrees below normal... Highs ranging from the mid
50s east to low 60s west.

Clear and cold again tonight with lows ranging fm the mid 30s
to arnd 40. No frost freeze headlines necessary.

Short term Saturday through Sunday
As of 350 am edt Friday...

mostly sunny on Sat with high pressure building in from the nw,
and N or NE winds 10 kt or less. High temps range fm the upper
50s near 60 at the coast to the mid 60s inland.

Mostly clear to partly cloudy and not as cold Sat night, with
lows mainly in the lower 40s. Partly sunny on Sun with highs
mainly ranging thru the 60s.

Long term Sunday night through Thursday
As of 500 pm edt Thursday...

the medium range period will begin with a slow moving upper low
tracking east from the lower ms valley to the tn valley sun
night through early tue. Upper ridging will be in place across
the mid-atlc through Mon night with strong sfc high pressure
centered over the NE conus, ridging south to off the delmarva.

While some mid high clouds may affect the local area sun
night mon, conditions should remain dry with the possible
exception of the far SW counties where a 20% pop will be
maintained Mon aftn Mon evening. Expect below average
temperatures with lows Sun night ranging from the upper 30s to
mid 40s and highs Mon 60-65 f most places.

By tue, consensus between the 19 12z models is for the upper low
to slowly weaken to an open wave while moving into the se
conus southern appalachians. Sfc low pressure along the gulf
coast is progged to move NE up through the SE coastal plain
while sfc high pressure retreats well off the NE mid-atlc
coasts. Still some model timing and strength differences so
with the uncertainty, kept pops around 40% to 50% for the bulk
of the cwa, genly highest Tue and Tue night. Mainly cloudy so
not as cold Mon night with lows in the 40s to lower 50s and
highs Tue mid 60s SE to around 60 NW (potentially could be
cooler than this if it rains all day). Will keep 30-40% chance
showers Wed and 20% Thu as the eventual evolution of the sfc low
shows quite a bit of disagreement amongst the models by this
timeframe. Partly mostly cloudy Wed and Thu with highs warming a
bit to 65-70 f and lows mainly 50-55 f.

Aviation 18z Friday through Wednesday
As of 140 pm edt Friday...

vfr conditions through the 18z TAF period. N NW winds are still
gusting up to 15-20 kt in the TAF sites, but will diminish
after 22z to less than 5 kt by 02z tonight. Otherwise, expect
skc through the entire TAF period for all sites.

Outlook:VFR conditions will continue through sun, with high
pressure over the region. A disturbance approaches the region
late Monday and Tuesday bringing the next chance for sub-vfr
conditions.

Marine
As of 350 am edt Friday...

caa will wane this morning with a NW wind of 15-25kt diminishing
to AOB 15kt by this aftn. Gale flags for the bay ocean S of
cape charles have expired and been replaced with SCA flags. Scas
for the rivers continue through 11z and 14z for the remaining
marine zones. Seas waves of 4-7ft 2-4ft will gradually subside
through the morning. High pressure builds in from the NW this
aftn into tonight. A secondary surge is expected later tonight,
but this surge should generally be sub-sca. High pressure will
build over the region Saturday and Sunday resulting in benign
marine conditions. High pressure pushes off the SRN new england
coast early next week as low pressure pushes off the southeast
coast. This will result in increasing onshore flow. An E wind is
expected to reach 10-15kt by Monday, and then 15-25kt by Monday
night Tuesday Tuesday night. Onshore flow will result in seas
building to 6-10ft by Tuesday Tuesday night, with 4-5ft waves in
the mouth of the bay. Broad low pressure crosses the region
Wednesday with the wind becoming NW in the wake of the low.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
