Synopsis
A cold front will cross the area tonight... Bringing cooler and
drier weather through midweek. Surface high pressure will push
off the coast Wednesday and Thursday with warmer temperatures
for the latter half of the week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Weak sfc hi pres slides over the fa today. Drier airmass
becoming increasingly established over the local area... W
dewpoints continuing to lower. Starting out mainly sunny... Then
expecting sct-bkn CU development (w heating and local
seabreezes). Highs mainly in the l-m80s... U70s-around 80f at
the beaches.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Wednesday
Broad trough aloft sharpens into the great lakes oh valley by

moisture associated W this front... Though can not rule out an
isold shra... ESP on the coastal plain. Lows in the m-u50s inland
to the l-m60s at the coast.

A relatively potent S W aloft will track across the local area
tue as the axis of the trough aloft swing to the E coastdrop
across the local area. Despite dry airmass... This system could
prove strong enough to squeeze out isold sct shras tstms in the
afternoon... ESP E of I 95. Will carry 20-30% pops. Highs in the
u70s- l80s.

Sfc high pressure finally builds into over the region tue
night-wed providing dry weather and comfortable conditions
under a mainly clear sky. Lows in the l-m50s inland to the
u50s-l60s at the coast. Highs Wed 80-85f... M-u70s at the
beaches.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday
Long term period will feature generally dry wx with near to
slightly above normal temps through the period. Sfc high pres
slides offshore Wed night into Thu allowing for S SW flow to
develop across the mid atlc and temps to MAX out in the mid-upr
80s thu. Similar conditions into Fri with a mostly sunny sky and
high temps in the upr 80s to lwr 90s. Next chance of rain
arrives Sat sat night with an approaching cold front. With this
several days out will cap pops at 30% for now, but may raise
pops for this in future updates if the timing holds.

Aviation 07z Monday through Friday
Vfr conditions through the 06z TAF forecast. Isold sct shras
and high based CIGS possible Tue (afternoon) as a secondary cold

Marine
Benign boating conditions expected the next few days. Winds
remain under 10 kt today with a weak trough of low pressure in

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.
