A weak cold front will move off the coast this evening. High
pressure builds into the area for the rest of the week.

Near term until 6 am Wednesday morning

latest sfc analysis shows a trough of low pressure centered from ern
ny south to just offshore of the nc coast. In addition, there is a
subtle dew point boundary stretching from the NW piedmont to
just N of the lower md ERN shore. Temperatures are mainly in
the upper 70s-low 80s, with dewpoints in the upper 60s-mid 70s
as of 8 pm. A couple of isolated showers have been noted over
the past couple of hours over the va NRN neck (where the highest
dewpoints are. In addition, latest mesoanalysis is showing a
small amount (500 j kg) of MLCAPE over this area. Raised pops
to ~30% from the NRN neck middle peninsula ese to the ches bay
through 03z to account for this. Expect all showers to diminish
by 11 pm-midnight as any remaining instability diminishes (this
is supported by latest suite of cam guidance).

The aforementioned dewpoint boundary moves to the SE of the area by
sunrise as high pressure builds in from the w. Sct-bkn ci is
expected through through a good part of the overnight (especially
se). Otherwise, partly-mostly clear below ~20k feet. Overnight

As of 320 pm edt Tuesday...

afternoon surface analysis shows a weak trough of low pressure over
the area with high pressure at the surface and aloft off the
southeast conus. Winds are generally out of the north at 5-10 knots,
slightly higher at elevated sensors across the bay and offshore.

Waves are 1-2 ft in the bay and ~2 ft offshore.

A weak front is still forecast to cross the waters tonight with
north winds 10-15 knots through mid morning or so before the
pressure gradient relaxes as high pressure builds in from the west.

Generally weak southerly flow with waves seas 1-3ft are expected
into the upcoming weekend. Model consensus shows stronger south and
southwesterly winds and the potential for a frontal passage late in
the weekend.

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.
