Synopsis
A frontal boundary will linger near the virginia north carolina
border tonight. A cold front approaches from the northwest on
memorial day and stalls north of the region into Tuesday.

Near term until 6 am this morning
Current analysis indicating surface low pressure over the great
lakes, extending SE into the local area with some weak surface
low pressure reflection along the coast of southeast va and
northeast nc. Shortwave energy aloft has pushed well offshore
over past few hrs and airmass is only marginally unstable
(greater instability resides across southern nc and sc). While
pops have been raised a little, to likely through around 02z
across the NW with another area of high chance (40-50%) into
south central and southside va, the threat for any strong tstms
appears very unlikely now. May see a few isolated tstms this
evening but decided to update the hwo to remove the mention of
strong severe tstms. Near term models and hrrr reflectivity suggest
the showers diminish in coverage later tonight with just
variable cloudiness and genly dry conditions overnight. Low
levels are already rather saturated and winds will be light
enough to support patchy fg and or low stratus overnight as
well. Lows ranging through the 60s.

Short term 6 am this morning through Wednesday
A cold front will be crossing the mountains Mon morning... Then
continue E Mon afternoon. Models continue to show drying over
most of the area... W the instability moisture axis shifting se
into far SE va-ne nc... Where additional shras tstms are
possible in the afternoon evening. Partly sunny on memorial day
with highs in the l-m80s N to the m-u80s S (70s along the
atlantic beaches of the eastern shore).

12z 28 guidance continues to show that the cold front becomes
aligned parallel to wsw flow aloft... Stalling immediately N of
the region to perhaps pushing into the md ERN shore. The chc for
aftn evening shras tstms will diminish tue... Though will
continue W 20-40% pops in far SRN and SE va NE nc. Highs
tue from the u70s-l80s at the coast to the m80s inland... After
morning lows ranging through the 60s.

Little change in conditions Tue night-wed. Upper level trough
to sharpen into the ERN conus... Though a strong enough trigger
for widespread convective development (esp wed) ill-defined.

Maintaining pops (15-25%) in far SE va-ne nc... Mainly wed
afternoon. Lows Tue night in the 60s. Highs Wed in the u70s-
l80s.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday
The long term period beginning Wednesday night will start off mainly
dry with high pressure over the mid atlantic states Thursday. The
high will merge with the bermuda high pressure ridge. This will
promote a slight warming trend and an increase of moisture. A
frontal boundary will settle over northern portions of the mid
atlantic states and help to trigger scattered mainly afternoon and
evening thunderstorms over the region.

High temperatures will range from 80 to 85 but slightly cooler at
the beaches. Lows of 60 to 65 Thursday and Friday mornings warm to
the mid to upper 60s Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Aviation 08z Monday through Friday
The current analysis shows low pressure off the DELMARVA coast,
with a weak ridge of surface high pressure over the piedmont.

Stratus and fog has developed over much of the area with
ric sby ecg experiencing lifr conditions, with periodic ifr
stratus at phf orf. Ifr lifr stratus and fog should prevail
through 12z, and potentially through 15z at sby. Drier
conditions arrive from the wsw as low pressure departs to the
ne today. There is a slight chc of mainly sea bay-breeze
showers tstms this aftn. Low pressure tracks off the nc outer
banks later tonight into Tuesday bringing a chc of showers and
embedded tstms to SE va NE nc. Mainly dry conditions are then
expected to prevail Wednesday through Friday. Patchy fog or
stratus is possible each morning within a few hours of sunrise.

Marine
Late this aftn, weak low pressure was near the SE va NE nc
border. That low will move ene and out to sea tonight thru mon.

A weak cold front will push acrs the area during mon, then
washes out over the carolinas during tue. Another weak cold
front slides acrs the region Tue night into Wed morning, with
yet another cold front moving thru the waters Wed night. High
pressure will build over the waters then out to sea Thu into
fri. Winds waves seas will remain below SCA criteria thru the
period. Variable direction winds will be 15 kt or less, with
waves 1 to 2 ft and seas 2 to 4 ft.

Md... None.

Nc... None.

Va... None.

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.
