A couple of upper level troughs will be crossing the region this
weekend... Resulting in a chance for showers and thunderstorms.

A cold front from the west will cross the local area memorial
day.

Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
Sfc hi pres will remain INVOF SE CONUS through tonight.

Remaining breezy through early this evening (gusts to 20-30 mph)
then winds wane overnight. Sct-bkn CU across the fa this
afternoon expected to dissipate this evening... Leaving mainly
skc for the rest of the night. Lows in the m50s-around 60f
inland to the l60s near the coast in va NE nc.

Short term 6 am Saturday morning through Monday
Weak ridge aloft nudges into the region from the wsw through
sat morning. Models in decent consensus W the arrival of weak
s W tracking into the fa by Sat afternoon evening. Combination
of daytime heating and that S W in wnw flow aloft will likely
result in at least sct convective development. Will have pops
increasing to 30-50% over most of the fa (by after 20z 27). Spc
has outlooked WRN central areas of fa in a slgt risk... W
remaining areas in a marginal risk. Forecast soundings do show
ml CAPE values of 1000-1500 j kg, W 30-40 kt of effective
shear and steep low-level lapse rates. Main threats will be
large hail and localized damaging winds. Partly-mostly sunny sat
morning... Then becoming mostly cloudy in the afternoon. Highs
from the m-u70s-around 80f on the eastern shore to the m-u80s
inland.

Nearly zonal flow aloft remains Sat night into sun. A weak sfc
boundary settles just S of the area (by Sun morning). Another
s W aloft expected to arrive late sun... Which again combined w
daytime heating likely results in (at least) sct convective
development. Not as warm Sun due to vrb clouds-becoming mostly
cloudy conditions. Lows Sat night mainly ranging through the
60s. Highs Sun in the u60s-m70s at the coast to the m-u70s
inland.

Will continue to highlight possible strong to severe tstms in
hwo for the weekend.

A break in the chances for shras tstms after Sun evening... Into
mon morning. A cold front will be crossing the mountains mon
morning... Then continue to the E Mon afternoon. Expecting
additional shras tstms to accompany that frontal
passage... Mainly Mon afternoon evening. Otherwise... Partly-
mostly cloudy Sun night-mon. Lows Sun night in the 60s. Highs
mon mainly in the l-m80s (except 70s at the beaches).

Long term Monday night through Friday
A frontal boundary will push south of the area Tue morning, with
weak high pressure providing mainly dry wx for Tue aftn thru wed.

More unsettled wx with chcs for showers or tstms then expected
wed night thru fri, as a frontal boundary will linger over the
region or acrs the carolinas. Highs will mainly range fm the
upper 70s to mid 80s thru the period, with lows ranging fm the
upper 50s to the upper 60s.

Aviation 20z Friday through Wednesday
Vfr conditions expected through the 18z TAF period. Gusty w
winds to 20-25 kt will diminish this evening. Sct showers and
storms return for Saturday afternoon into early next week as the
pattern remains somewhat unsettled.

Marine
No headlines in the short term tonight thru sun. Low pressure
just off the new england coast late this aftn, will move east
into the NRN atlc tonight. Then, weak low pressure will move
east acrs the oh valley late tonight, then slides ese thru the
cwa and off the coast Sat aftn into Sat night. Weak high
pressure will build by to the north and off the coast late sat
night into Sun aftn. Then, a warm front followed by a cold front
will affect the area Sun night into Tue morning. Wind speeds
will be 15 kt or less tonight into tue, with waves 1 to 2 ft and

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.
