Synopsis
Strong high pressure builds over new england through tonight. A
warm front pushes north across the area Tuesday. Low pressure
approaches the mid atlantic coast from the southeast Tuesday
night, then pushes offshore Wednesday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 630 am edt Monday...

latest msas shows high pressure across ERN canada nosing down the
ern seaboard resulting in a cad wedge. The frontal bndry has now
pushed south of the local area with an weak area of low pressure
ivof the nen outer banks. Plenty of moisture is keeping the insitu-
wedge in check with areas of light rain drizzle and fog this morning.

In addition, a stratiformed rain is now breaking out across the
northern zones.

High res data showing a "status-quo" scenario through the morning
hrs. Pcpn is progged to expand in coverage and become more showery
in nature this afternoon as the wedge begins to erode somewhat across
the ERN half of the fa. This should lead to some partial Sun across
sern coastal sections. However, expect the piedmont to remain socked
in all day. Likely pops will be maintained across the north where
the best lift will be. Chc pops south. Kept thunder out of fcst
based on little if any instab north of the bndry. Temps tricky
with highs from the upr 60s NW to the lwr 80s se.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Wednesday
As of 300 am edt Monday...

the frontal boundary remains south of the fa tonight, then lifts
back north as a warm front Tuesday as the high moves farther east.

Plenty of low-level moisture in combination with the front should
result in widespread low clouds. Pops taper off south to north
tonight with lows ranging from the mid 60s NW to the low 70s se.

Clouds will be slow to lift Tuesday, with variably to partly cloudy
conditions by aftn as the warm front lifts north of the area. This
brings back the late summer heat and humidity. In addition, tropical
moisture approaches from the SE late due to a low offshore. This
will bring a chc of afternoon convection. Highs from the upr 70s
nw to the mid 80s se.

Models continue to show a tropical low approaching the nc coast late
tue aftrn, tracking nne along the outer banks Tuesday night, pushing
offshore into the vacapes Wednesday ahead of an approaching cold front.

Very humid Tuesday night into Wednesday with the tropical influence.

Lows Tuesday night range from the upper 60s NW to low mid 70s se.

Increased pops across the WRN zones Wed aftrn as the models are
showing a quicker increase in moisture along and ahead of the
front. Highs Wednesday in the mid upper 80s with dewpoints in
the low mid 70s.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday
As of 400 pm edt Sunday...

unsettled conditions to persist through the first half of the
extended period with a stalled frontal boundary lingering across
southern portions of the region. A cold front slowly crosses the
region late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Showers and
thunderstorms will increase in coverage from northwest to southeast
Wednesday night. Both the GFS and ECMWF have this front lingering
across southeastern portions of the area during the day Thursday
into Friday allowing for the continued threat of showers and
thunderstorms. A secondary cold front makes its way through the area
on Friday with high pressure building back north of the area Friday
night into Saturday. There still remains some uncertainty with the
timing of this secondary front and a few showers may try to linger
across the far southeast Friday night into Saturday. Cooler and
drier conditions Saturday and Sunday with high pressure building
over the region. There should be a big spread in temperatures across
the region on Thursday with another wedge trying to set up. Highs
will range from the lower 70s NW to the low mid 80s se. Highs will
then generally range from the upper 70s to lower 80s Friday through
Sunday with dewpoints dropping off slightly late Friday into the
weekend. Lows generally upper 50s to low 60s inland and upper 60s to
low 70s at the coast.

Aviation 12z Monday through Friday
As of 630 am edt Monday...

wedge remains in place with the frontal boundary as far SE as
the outer banks. NE flow along with deep moisture is keeping
ifr conditions across the local area this morning along with
areas of light rain drizzle and patchy fog. These conditions
will continue through the morning hours with the pcpn becoming
more showery in nature across the sern coastal sites this aftrn.

Expect ric to remain socked in all day along with periodic pcpn.

Ne winds become gusty (btwn 15-20 kts) along the ERN shore srn
ches bay.

Outlook: st reduced vsbys cont Tuesday morning, with conditions
improving Tuesday aftrn as the front gradually lifts N through
the region. The front remains N of the area Wednesday, with
another cold front approaching from the NW Thursday and into the
area Friday.

Marine
As of 250 am edt Monday...

frontal boundary remains INVOF nc coastal waters attm... It is
expected to drift S a bit today. Ene winds have thus far not
increased as much as expected N of that boundary. Most models
do indicate an increase to at least marginal low end SCA takes
place today... Lasts into this eve early tonight as sfc hi pres
remains INVOF new england. Waves seas are expected to build as
well. Winds slowly become SE (late) tonight into Tue W speeds
generally lower to AOB 15 kt. Prolonged onshore fetch will
likely result in seas AOA 5 ft into midweek.

Raised today's rip risk to high for atlantic beach on the va md
ern shore.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 250 am edt Monday...

onshore winds do increase across the entire region later today
as strong sfc hi pres remains centered INVOF new england. Tidal
anomalies will once again increase at bit for much of the area,
with possible shallow minor flooding late tonight through tue
(esp for counties in va md INVOF middle and upper ches bay).

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.
