Synopsis
High pressure moves across the southeastern states through Monday,
then slides offshore Monday night and Tuesday. Low pressure will
move northeast along the mid atlantic coast Tuesday night ahead
of a cold front that pushes offshore Wednesday.

Near term until 6 am Monday morning
The cold front now well offshore with high pressure centered over
texas. This high moves east providing clr skies. Winds diminish but
do not completely decouple. Lows in the 30s.

Short term 6 am Monday morning through Wednesday
The sfc high moves across the carolinas Mon then off the coast mon
night and tues. Dry through this period with a warming trend as
winds shift into the ssw. Highs Mon in the low to mid 50s. Lows mon
night in the 30s to near 40 se. Increasing afternoon clouds and
milder tue. Highs 60-65.

A trof develops along the sern coast late tues with a weak area of
low pressure moving NE along it Tue night and wed. Moisture from the
system lifts north with the best lift progged along the coast. Expect
shwrs to spread north Tue night then shift towards the coast wed
morning as the system slides offshore. Likely pops along the bay
and coast... Chc pops west of the bay Tue night. Chc pops along
the coast Wed morning then drying out. QPF generally under one
quarter inch. Lows Tue night in the 40s to near 50 se. Highs wed
in the 50s except near 60 across nern nc.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday
High pressure builds into the area Thursday resulting in a dry but
cool holiday. Lows Wed night in the 30s to lwr 40s se. Highs thurs
in the upr 40s to lwr 50s.

Another area of low pressure develops off the SE coast late in the
week but it appears the high to the north keeps any sgnfcnt moisture
south of the local area. Dry and continued cool fri. Highs 50-55.

Next cold front approaches from the NW late Sat then crosses then
area early sun. GFS wetter than ECMWF so will go with low chc pops
sat night for now. Warmer Sat ahead of it with highs 55-60. Lows sat
night in the 40s to near 50 se. Cooler behind it Sun with highs mid
40s-lwr 50s.

Aviation 21z Sunday through Friday
Vfr conditions through the forecast period with only sct CU this
afternoon. Main concern will be the gusty wnw winds btwn 20-30kts
for the rest of today, slowly diminishing after 00z.

Outlook: high pressure moves across the sern states through Monday,
then tracks off the southeast coast on Tuesday. A trof of low pres
develops along the carolina coast Wed with sct shwrs across the sern
taf sites by mid week.

Marine
Late this aftn, a cold front was pushing out to sea, while high
pressure was cntrd over NE texas. The gradient between the
exiting cold front and the high pressure area was resulting in
nw winds 15 to 25 kt over the waters with gusts to around 30 kt.

There were a few gusts near 35 kt over the NRN coastal waters.

Will leave gale warning in effect until 4 am for the 3 nrn
coastal zns, as gusts to around 35 kt still possible due to caa
and drier airmass filtering into the area. Otherwise, sca's
will remain in effect for the remainder of the waters into thru
mon morning, as the cntr of the high builds ene toward the mid
atlc region.

High pressure builds over the SE states into the SRN mid atlc
region Mon into Mon night, then slides out to sea on tue.

Adverse boating conditions Mon morning will subside during the
day, with more benign quiet sub-sca conditions expected Mon aftn
thru Tue night, as winds become SW mainly 10 to 15 kt.

Models in fair agreement with developing a low off the SE coast
tue night, then passing east of CAPE hatteras and ene out to sea
during wed. Next chance for SCA conditions will likely be wed
aftn into Wed night, as cool high pressure builds in fm the
west.

Equipment
The fan on the temperature sensor at the richmond ASOS (kric)
has likely failed, causing erroneous temperature readings. The
contract observer is augmenting the official METAR observations
(hourly METAR and specis). However, the 5-min high resolution
data is automated directly from the sensor and is subject to
reporting this erroneous data. As such, do not rely on the 5 min
temperature data from kric until our techs can repair the
sensor, likely on Monday.

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.
