Marine
As of 410 am edt Tuesday...

early this morning, sfc low pressure was just off the mid atlc
coast, and sfc high pressure was centered over the upper midwest.

Strong N NE winds will occur today into this evening, as the
sfc low intensifies a bit as it moves farther into the atlc,
while the high builds ese toward the area. Scas remain in place
for the northern ches bay, rivers and coastal waters north of
parramore island. Farther south, gale warnings remain in effect
for the coastal waters south of parramore island, the lower ches
bay and lower james river, and the currituck sound through much
of today. Winds in the gale warning will run nne 25-35 kt with
gusts up to 40 kt. Within the scas, nne winds 20-25 kt with
gusts to 30 kt.

Sfc low pressure will push even farther into the atlc, while sfc
high pressure builds into ERN ny pa this evening into early wed.

This will allow for scas into wed, at least over the lower bay
and lower james, with winds across NRN waters slow to diminish
into wed. Over the coastal waters, seas quickly build today,
with persistent strong NE winds building seas considerably (5-8
feet N and 7-11 feet s) during today. A high surf advisory has
been issued from va beach south to outer banks currituck in
response to building seas during this period. Even after winds
diminish with slackening pressure gradient late wed, an extended
period of elevated seas appear likely over the coastal waters
for much of the week ahead, given prolonged onshore flow continuing
through midweek. Marine conditions finally start to improve thu
and fri, as high pressure builds over the southeast and winds
turn offshore later Fri into sat.

Tides coastal flooding
As of 410 am edt Tuesday...

a high surf advisory is in effect from va beach to outer banks
currituck for breaking waves around 8 feet, which will result in
some beach erosion and dangerous surf conditions.

Although not anticipated at this time, some minor tidal flooding
may occur across the lower ches bay and lower james river
(sewells pt) during high tide this afternoon.

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.
