Synopsis
Low pressure will along the mid-atlantic coast tonight... Toward
new england by early Friday. High pressure returns late tonight
into Friday and remains over the region through the weekend.

Near term until 6 am Friday morning
As of 325 pm est Thursday...

latest wx analysis reveals deepening surface low pressre offshore of
the E nc coast. Aloft, strong mid upper low continues to slide ne
across the ohio valley toward the interior northeast. Surface low
pressure will continue to lift along the mid-atlantic coast this
evening, to a positon off just south of long island by late
tonight early Friday morning. Rain already in the process of
tapering off across the area, with IR wv composite showing one last
batch of heavier showers pushing across the area at 20z. Behind this
feature, will see some periodic light rain or drizzle as mid-level
drying ensues, with pops turning off tonight as the upper system
tracks to the north across the NRN mid-atlantic. Clearing is
expected sw-ne late as drier air arrives with lows ranging from the
low 30s W to the low mid 40s along the coast.

Short term 6 am Friday morning through Sunday
As of 325 pm est Thursday...

upper level low will eject NE across the northeast toward new
england through the day Friday. Resultant w-sw downslope flow will
help to quickly scour out clouds Friday morning. Meanwhile, surface
high pressure rebuilds from the west late Friday into Saturday,
bringing a mostly clear sunny sky late Friday into the weekend. Weak
caa at the surface will maintain temperatures near or just below
seasonal averages. Highs Friday generally in the 50s Friday Saturday
and lows in the 30s inland to low 40s for coastal SE va NE nc
Saturday morning.

High pressure at the surface builds overhead into the upcoming
weekend, with a quieter, quasi-zonal flow aloft bringing a dry,
quiet wx weekend across the local area. Maxima do moderate slowly
from Friday through Sunday, but temperatures look to remain at or
just below climo norms. Expect highs generally in the 50s to near 60
with early morning lows generally into the low to mid 30s inland to
around 40 at the coast.

Long term Sunday night through Thursday
As of 345 pm est Thursday...

much quieter weather still on track for much of next week. A weak
upper-level shortwave approaches the area late Sunday-Monday
(coupled with a sfc cold front). Not much in the way of rain
expected with the fropa, but have slight chc pops for coastal NE nc
from 06-18z mon. Looks like the bulk of the rain will fall well
offshore after the front crosses the CWA by Mon aftn. Behind the
front, sfc high pressure settles just west of the region Mon night-
tue. However, am only expecting temperatures to drop to slightly
below average. A weak shortwave caught in NW flow aloft is progged
to swing through the mid-atlantic on Wed (coupled with another cold
front). However, moisture will be lacking across the area, so this
will be another (mainly) dry fropa. Canadian high pressure then
settles over the region on Wed night-thu am before moving offshore
by the end of the day on thu.

The cooler air lags behind the front a bit, so highs on Mon will
still be in the 50s to near 60. Cooler on Tue wed, with highs in the
upper 40s to near 50 north mid 50s south. Warming back up into the
50s area-wide on thu. Lows Monday night in the low-mid 30s
inland around 40 in coastal SE va-ne nc. Cooler on both Tuesday and
Wednesday night with lows ranging from near 30 NW to the mid-upper
30s se.

Aviation 22z Thursday through Tuesday
As of 110 pm est Thursday...

deepening sfc low continues to lift n-ne along the carolina
coast this afternoon, spreading light rain across area
terminals. CIGS vsby are largely ifr this afternoon. Rain will
continue to taper off from sw- NE this aftn through this
evening, with some lingering light rain drizzle persisting into
late tonight. A NE wind will increase to 10-15kt inland to
15-25kt along the coast, with gusts as high as 35kt along the
coast, and ~20kt inland. CIGS are expected to remain ifr this
evening after the rain ends. Drier air arrives from the W later
tonight with the wind becoming W 10-15kt with gusts ~20kt and
conditions are expected to improve rapidly after 07-10z, with
vfr conditions persisting through Friday on a breezy west wind
(gusts to ~20-25kt tomorrow late morning aftn).

Outlook: high pressure prevails Friday night through Monday
with continuedVFR conditions expected.

Marine
As of 400 pm est Thursday...

low pressure now lifting into eastern nc and will push off the
va capes this evening. Strong E NE winds continue north of the
sfc low, while winds are diminishing in the southern waters.

Headlines have generally remained as they were although extended
the gales through 7 pm for the lower james (this now matches the
end time for the york rappahannock). Gales are in effect through
fri morning for the entire bay and all coastal waters to cover
gusts to 35-40 kt in the west winds overnight. Seas have risen
to ~15 ft at buoy 44100 and to 12 ft at 44099 and these higher
seas will translate north over the next few hrs. Expect seas to
hit 15 ft or higher later this evening at buoy 44009 off
fenwick.

Mentioned in the mww that winds may occasionally gust to 50 kt
over the northern coastal waters before the winds diminish later
this evening. Winds and seas will remain elevated with sca
headlines needed after the gales expire at various times tonight
or on fri. Calmer conditions return for the weekend as high
pressure settles back over the region.

Hydrology
As of 330 pm est Thursday...

river flood warnings remain in effect for stony creek on the
nottoway, and mattoax on the appomattox, lawrenceville on the
meherrin and sebrell on the nottoway. Expect additional rises
and possible warnings on local rivers given the expected
rainfall Thursday.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 1215 pm est Thursday...

strong E NE winds prevail and tidal departures are rising rather
quickly as expected. Based on current observations, have raised
a coastal flood advisory for areas along the southern shore of
the james river from surry to suffolk. Closer to the bay as well
as in areas farther north, departures are in general slightly
lower but will still be close to minor flood thresholds with the
upcoming high tide this aftn early evening. Issued a couple of
coastal flood statements to highlight these areas from sewells
pt up the western shore of the bay to lewisetta.

Will continue to monitor the trends to in case additional
advisories are needed for the atlantic side eastern shore though
it looks like this would not be until the following high tide
overnight early fri.

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
