Synopsis
High pressure remains centered across the southeastern states
tonight. A cold front crosses the region from the north
Wednesday, then stalls across the carolinas Wednesday night. The
boundary lifts back north as a warm front Thursday, with a cold
front crossing the area Friday.

Near term until 6 am Wednesday morning
As of 400 pm edt Tuesday...

a broad upper ridge is centered over the southeast CONUS this
aftn, with surface high pressure centered E of the ga sc coast.

A trough moving through the ERN great lakes, with a cold front
trailing back to the wsw. Mostly sunny and mild locally this
aftn with temperatures ranging from the upper 70s to low 80s,
and cooler at the immediate atlantic coast. The cold front will
approach from the NW tonight, which will result in an increase
in clouds, especially n. There is a slight chc of a shower late
over the md ERN shore as the cold front pushes through. Forecast
lows tonight range from the upper 50s to low 60s.

Short term 6 am Wednesday morning through Friday
As of 400 pm edt Tuesday...

the cold front drops into the area Wednesday and settles near
the va nc border by aftn, and becomes rather diffuse. Models
suggest some low-level convergence over interior SE va NE nc as
a sea-breeze pushes inland and interacts with the front. This
could trigger a few showers tstms over these areas initially,
and back into the SW piedmont later in the aftn. However, pops
are only 20-30%. Still mild Wednesday with highs in the upper
70s to low 80s, although locally cooler along the atlantic
coast.

The front pushes into the carolinas Wednesday night, before
lifting back N as a warm front Thursday as low pressure tracks
ene from oh into pa. Partly cloudy and mainly dry Wednesday
night with lows in the 50s. Partly to mostly cloudy Thursday
30-50% chc of showers and a slight chc of tstms w, and a 20-30%
chc of showers toward the coast. High temperatures range from
the mid 60s to around 70f over the ERN shore, to around 80f sw.

An upper trough and associated cold front approach from the w
Thursday night and track across the region Friday. Of note, the
23 12z gfs ECMWF have more moisture than the 12z nam, which is
rather moisture starved. Pops are mainly 30-50% (~60% far n) for
showers Thursday night into Friday, with a slight chc of tstms.

Mostly cloudy and mild Thursday night with lows in the upper
50s to mid 60s, followed by highs in the low mid 70s Friday.

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

a cold front will be moving offshore Friday night into early
Saturday morning with some lingers showers or thunderstorms
possible Friday night. Expect plentiful sunshine and seasonable
temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s as high pressure
builds back over the region. Another cold front approaches and
crosses the region Sunday into Sunday night, but rain chances
still appear limited with this system. The GFS is most
aggressive with the rain chances for this period while the ecm
has much less. As a result, limited pops to only a slight chance
during the day on Sunday. Mild on Sunday out ahead of the
system with SW flow, have highs climbing up into the low to
upper 70s across the region. Zonal flow is expected for next
week with the potential for a few weak disturbances working into
the region. Temperatures are likely to be near or above normal
into early next week.

Aviation 00z Wednesday through Sunday
As of 745 pm edt Tuesday...

vfr conditions across area terminals will persist through the
00z TAF period. High pressure centered off the southeast coast
this evening will slowly push offshore of the southeast coast
through Wednesday night. Light w-sw flow tonight, W high
clouds slowly increasing overnight, as a weak cold front
approaches from the n. Moisture is limited, but there may be a
brief period of 5-10kft clouds at sby, with some showers
possible north of the terminal after 06z tonight. The front
drops into the area Wednesday with the wind becoming nw. By
Wednesday aftn, the front will stall in vicinity of the va nc
border, and a sea- breeze will likely push inland over SE va ne
nc. This will likely result in sct-bkn CU along with a low
(20-30%) chance of showers tstms over interior SE va NE nc,
primarily at phf orf ecg. Chances are low enough for now to hold
out of taf, but some isolated to widely scattered showers are
possible after 21z 5 pm edt wed.

Outlook: the cold front sinks S of the region Wednesday night,
and then lifts back N as a warm front Thursday as low pressure
tracks N of the region. This will bring a chc of showers and a
slight chc of tstms. A cold front approaches from the W Thursday
night into Friday bringing an additional chc of showers and a
slight chc of tstms. High pressure returns Saturday, and another
cold front approaches from the W Sunday.

Marine
As of 330 pm edt Tuesday...

latest observations show mainly S to SW winds of around 5 to 15
knots over the waters this afternoon with high pressure centered to
our south and an area of low pressure centered over the great lakes.

High pressure will move further off the southeast coast tonight with
a cold front approaching the region tonight into Wednesday morning.

S winds pick up to 10 to 20 knots later this evening and overnight
as the front approaches. Winds should stay below SCA criteria, but a
few gusts to 20 knots will be possible over the bay, especially
between 03z and 09z. Sub-sca conditions are then expected through at
least Friday. Another front approaches and crosses the region Friday
into Saturday, bringing the next potential for SCA conditions.

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.
