Marine Weather and Tides
Tangier, VA

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

area forecast discussion
national weather service wakefield va
943 pm edt Fri may 25 2018

Synopsis
Dry weather is expected through tonight under the influence of
high pressure off the mid-atlantic coast. Low pressure over the
gulf of mexico will gradually bring a return of moisture through
the upcoming holiday weekend, mainly in the form of afternoon
and evening showers and thunderstorms.

Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
As of 930 pm edt Friday...

made a few tweaks to dew points and cloud cover. Delayed
increasing clouds unti later tonight per current satellite
imagery. Otherwise, no changes needed to afternoon forecast.

Previous discussion... High pressure has shifted a bit further
offshore this afternoon allowing a return of ssw flow over the
local area and warmer temps. Other than scattered CU in parts of
the area this afternoon, the weather is otherwise quiet with
all shower activity relegated to the carolinas and the mountains
of SW va. Little change is expected in the weather tonight with
the high offshore and light ssw winds in place. Mainly clear
with lows in the 60s to around 70. Higher dew pts and SW flow
should mostly preclude fog formation early Saturday morning.

However, it cannot be completely ruled out for locations such as
phf akq ecg.

Short term 6 am Saturday morning through Monday
As of 330 pm edt Friday...

weak upper ridging aloft and southerly low-level flow will be
our predominate weather pattern through memorial day. This will
result in a continued increase in humidity locally through
Sunday, due to sustained southerly flow from the gomex, and a
mainly diurnal chance of showers and thunderstorms both Saturday
and Sunday. By Monday there are indications that a little
deeper feed of sub-tropical moisture will make a run at
central eastern nc and perhaps far southern portions of va.

While locally heavy rain will be possible with the strongest
tstms Sat Sun (pws 1.75-2.00"), the best opportunity for
widespread moderate heavy downpours and potential flooding
should hold off until Monday for the aforementioned areas as a
more pronounced area of sub-tropical moisture (pws increasing
to 2.0-2.3") arrives. As far as pops go, will carry high chc to
likely (50-60%) along west of a line from emv-xsa-cge Sat aftn,
lowering to slight chc (~20%) for coastal NE nc. Similar pops
Sunday but with highest pops oriented a bit more N ne. High
chc likely pops (50-65%) along north of a line from fvx-fyj-wal,
lowering to slight chc (~20%) over the northern obx. By Monday,
will generally have chc pops everywhere (30-50%), but likely
pops (55-65%) along south of va hwy 58.

Temps will remain warm Sat Sun with highs generally in the
mid upr 80s, except upr 70s to low 80s immediate coast. A bit
cooler Monday with increased cloud cover and pcpn chances. Highs
in the mid 70s to low 80s. Lows remaining in the 60s to low 70s.

Long term Monday night through Friday
As of 330 pm edt Friday...

this period to be governed by the moisture and remnant low track of
sub-tropical storm alberto. After stalling across the gulf states
mon, the system is progged to drift slowly NE into the tn valley
tue Wed with the remnant low pushing NE along or just east of the
applach mts Thu fri.

Kept low chc pops (20-40%) across the region Mon nite thru tues nite
then increased to high chc pops (40-50%) Wed thru fri. Highs tues
mid-upr 80s, low-mid 80s Wed Thu fri. Lows mid 60s-lwr 70s.

Aviation 02z Saturday through Wednesday
As of 730 pm edt Friday...

vfr conditions anticipated through the 00z TAF period. Light
s winds overnight will increase and become a bit gusty on
Saturday, but gusts should remain in the 15-20 kt range. Patchy
fog (MVFR vsby?) is possible at kphf kecg early Saturday
morning, but confidence is low, with most guidance suggesting
potential is a bit better in the piedmont. However, with dew
points increasing and light winds, it cannot be ruled out.

Outlook... Expect moisture to increase for the upcoming holiday
weekend with scattered showers t-storms possible each
afternoon evening from sat-mon. Periodic flight restrictions
will be possible in around tstms.

Marine
As of 330 pm edt Friday...

no flags as SW winds around the bermuda high dominate through the
holiday weekend. Expect some south channeling at times across
the ches bay, otw winds AOB 15 kts. Seas 2-3 ft with 1-2 ft
waves.

Flow becomes more SE by mid week in advance of alberto's remnant
low, the SW behind the lows departure. Speeds below SCA levels.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 330 pm edt Friday...

south channeling up the ches bay will likely have levels
topping out just below minor flooding at bishops head. Thus,
went ahead and issued a coastal flood statement for this
evening's high tide there.

Climate
As of 330 pm edt Friday...

* ric monthly rainfall total through 5 24 is 10.25" which now
ranks as the wettest may on record. (breaking the old record
of 9.79" in 2016). (precipitation records date back to 1880).

* sby monthly rainfall total through 5 24 is 8.63" which

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.
