Synopsis
A trough of low pressure will cross the region tonight, then linger
along the coast Tuesday. High pressure builds into the area for the
mid week period.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 1030 am edt Monday...

latest msas has a warm front snaking its way across the va nc
piedmonts. This front to progged to slowly make its way to the
east this aftrn and eve. Latest high res data keeps it dry thru
18z with only isltd-sct convection dvlpng over the NW piedmont
by 21z with sct activity across the west btwn 21z-00z. Thus,
adjusted pops a bit lwr today (mainly aftr 21z). Main threat
from any storm will be gusty winds and hvy downpours.

Skies should remain mstly sunny today, bcmg pt sunny across the
nw late. Warmer and more humid with highs upr 80s-lwr 90s, a
bit cooler at the beaches.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Wednesday
As of 415 am edt Monday...

a weak S W aloft and sfc trough (tough to call it a cold
front more of a sfc dew point front) will cross the area tonight
into Tue morning, then slides offshore during tue. Will have
pops 20-50% for tonight into early Tue morning, with highest in
the W and n. Will hang onto 15-25% pops over the ERN third of
the region during tue, as the boundary may linger there. Tue
will become very warm-hot, but with some lowering of the dew
points, esply over the WRN half of the area. Sfc high pressure
builds into and over the region from the west Tue night and
wed, resulting in dry wx and very warm conditions with moderate
humidity.

Lows tonight 70-75. Highs on Tue in the lower 90s
inland piedmont, and in the mid 80s to near 90 at the coast.

Lows Tue night will range from the mid 60s to lower 70s. Highs
on Wed around 90 inland piedmont, and in the mid to upper 80s
at the coast.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday
As of 135 pm edt Sunday...

the extended forecast period will feature typical summer wx. A
very warm-hot period of wx W hi pres sfc-aloft remaining near
the SE CONUS coast. Cannot rule out isold (diurnal) convection
thu-fri. Blend of the models suggests sharpening of trough aloft
next weekend into the NE mid-atlantic states which may result in
better pcpn chcs higher pops (than climo).

Lows Wed night in the u60s-l70s. Highs thu-sat mainly in the
u80s-l90s... W nighttime lows in the u60s-m70s. Highs Sun in
the 80s N to around 90f s.

Aviation 18z Monday through Friday
As of 120 pm edt Monday...

vfr conditions are expected thru most of the forecast period. A
trof of low pressure crosses the area tonite then lingers along
the coast tue. Isltd - sct convection is progged along this bndry
but the latest models show the moisture weakening as it crosses
the mts. Thus, added a bkn CU deck and vcsh at both ric sby for
a svrl hr period btwn 00z-06z, but kept the sern TAF sites dry
for now. Brief flight restrictions are possible in any shower tstm.

Outlook...

expect mainly dry wx Tue nite thru fri.

Marine
As of 340 am edt Monday...

latest obs reflect s-sw flow 10-15 kt across the waters this
morning. Sfc high pressure lingers offshore today, as a weak
warm front lifts across the region, and a cool front trough
approaches from the west. Winds remain s-sw ~10-15 kt. Pressure
gradient tightens this afternoon and this evening, as sfc
trough approaches. Winds will back to the e-se ~15 kt, with
occasional gusts ~20 knots by late this afternoon through late
evening. Expect predominate winds to remain sub-sca, but some
short-lived SCA gusts are possible in the lower and middle bay
this evening. Due to the marginal nature of these winds, will
hold off with issuance of any SCA headlines for now. Waves
1-2ft, but seas increase to 2-3 ft tonight in wind wave and
building SE swell.

A weak, perhaps convectively-enhanced, trough will cross the
area on Tuesday aftn evening with winds veering around to the
west in the bay for a period before resuming southwesterly flow
ahead of a weak cold front. The front crosses the area late
Tuesday early Wednesday, but with little to no airmass change
behind the front, winds will become nne but remain AOB 10 knots
in its wake, becoming sse by Wed night. The remainder of the
week will see generally quiet marine conditions with prevailing
southerly flow, ~10-15 knots, and waves seas 1-2 ft.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
