Synopsis
High pressure remains near the local area into Monday... Maintaining
dry weather. A weak disturbance approaches the region late Monday.

Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
As of 820 pm est Saturday...

weak sfc hi pres sits over the fa attm... And it will begin to
drift slowly to the NE overnight. Temperatures have been
dropping off as expected... And made only minor tweeks to the
forecast based on near guidance trends. Weak upper level system
will be arriving from the W late spreading sct-bkn ci into the
region. Before that... Remain skc (w light vrb winds). Lows
mainly in the u20s to l30s inland... U30s-around 40f at the
coast.

Short term 6 am Sunday morning through Tuesday
As of 355 pm est Saturday...

surface high pressure builds overhead Sunday. Continued quasi-
zonal, progressive flow aloft will bring another quiet, pleasant
day. Temperatures do moderate a bit more as winds do turn around
to the e-se. Despite the modest warm up, temperatures remain at
or just below climo norms. Highs again in the 50s to near 60
each day. Early morning lows ranging through the 30s to near 40.

A weak cold front approaches the region late Monday into Tuesday,
but with limited moisture and weak forcing to work with, not
expecting much of any precipitation across the region. Could see
a few sprinkles light rain along the albemarle sound Monday
morning, but chances of measuring precipitation occurring are
quite low, and have therefore kept pops at slight chance for
Monday. By late Monday, we will a better chance of some
scattered light rain showers mainly north of ric-sby line Monday
afternoon into Monday night... But again given rather shallow
overrunning, any QPF would be quite low, and have therefore kept
rain chances on the low side. Look for additional temp
moderation with temps warming out ahead of this system. High
temperatures Monday climbing up into the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Overall timing of front continues to slow with 12z 17 model run.

Blended model solution now favors the (mainly dry) frontal
passage now occuring into the aftn on Tuesday (ecmwf remains
fastest within the guidance envelope, with the remaining
guidance leaning toward slower gfs). Given the eps looking a bit
slower than the operational ecmwf, have again favored slowing
timing down slightly. Therefore kept warm side of guidance for
Tuesday with highs in the mid 50s to low 60s. Mainly dry w
majority of moisture forcing sliding off to our north.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
As of 400 pm est Saturday...

the medium range period looks to be relatively quiet with dry wx and
below normal temperatures through fri, then becoming unsettled by
next Sat as low pressure moves NE from the gulf of mexico. Latest
suite of 12z 17 models are in good agreement that a strong upper
level trough moves ese from hudson bay canada on Wed to the canadian
maritimes by 12z fri. Strong cold sfc high pressure (>1035 mb) will
build SE from the upper great lakes to the NE states on
thanksgiving, before settling from eastern ny state new england to
the mid-atlc by fri. After a dry cool but seasonal day on Wed with
highs in the upper 40s to mid 50s, temperatures really trend colder
for thanksgiving day and Fri with highs only in the 40s for the most
part even with ample sunshine. Lows will be mainly in the 30s wed
night, but down into the 20s for most of the region for thanksgiving
night Fri morning. By late Fri fri night into sat, the nw
flow confluent zone aloft shifts E off the new england coast and sfc
high pressure retreats to the ne. GFS is slowest to bring moisture
into the local area for sat, the gem ECMWF being a little faster.

Have gone with high chance to low-end likely pops by Sat aftn for
the piedmont with chance elsewhere. Highs will show the typical
cad wedge pattern, eventually reaching into the upper 50s to the
lower 60s over NE nc far SE va, while holding in the upper 40s lower
50s nw.

Aviation 01z Sunday through Thursday
As of 635 pm est Saturday...

vfr conditions are expected through the 00z TAF period as sfc hi
pres is slow to drift off to the ne. Generally light vrb winds
into Sun then becoming SE (remaining blo 10 kt). Weak lo pres
will track across the region mon-mon night W bkn-ovcVFR cigs
and possible isold shras (highest prob INVOF sby and ecg).VFR
and dry conditions expected tue-thu as hi pres builds across the
region.

Marine
As of 400 pm est Saturday...

late this aftn, one area of high pressure was right over the
waters, while a second area was centered over WRN pa. The center
of that high will slide ene and off the new england coast
tonight thru thu. Northerly winds 5-10 kt late this aftn, will
become NE everywhere late tonight into Sun morning. Winds 5-10
kt become E then SE during sun, then sse becoming SW or W sun
night into Mon morning. A cold front moves through the area
tue morning, with the wind becoming NW then N 5-15 kt by tue
night. Strong high pressure builds N of the region late wed
night thru thu, resulting in increasing NW then N winds.

remain in effect for mattoax on the appomattox, on the

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.
