Synopsis
High pressure remains centered off the mid atlantic coast
through today. A cold front crosses the region Tuesday morning
and moves well off the coast by Tuesday night. High pressure
becomes centered over the south central states Wednesday and
builds east into the local area by Thursday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Sfc high pres remains off the mid-atlantic coast today while
low pressure tracks from the central plains to the WRN great
lakes. Bkn-ovc mid level clouds (cigs mainly 7-9 kft) currently
spreading over the fa and expecting vrb clouds-partly cloudy wx
today. Isold shras have been spotted just N and back into the
mountains... And should remain out of the fa today. Highs mainly
in the m-u60s... Except u50s-l60s along the bay ocean.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Wednesday
Rain chances increase quickly after midnight tonight through
tue morning as main sfc low pres tracks through the great lakes
region... Pushing its associated cold front across the local
area by Tue aftn. Models remain in good general agreement wrt
timing that front through the fa. Still see potential for
isold tstms in a high shear minimal CAPE environment from about
09-17z 23 (tue) across the fa. Keeping pops mainly
60-80%... Tapering off w-e quickly after 17z 23 (tue)... W pcpn
moving out of the entire area by 00z 24 (wed). Highs Tue from
the mid 60s N and on the ERN shore to the u60s-l70s elsewhere.

Dry cooler Tue night Wed W lows mainly in the 30s and highs wed
upper 40s far N and on the ERN shore to the l-m50s elsewhere.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday
Medium range period (late week into next weekend) characterized by
building upper level ridge building over the eastern half of the
conus. Starting off seasonably cool behind the cool front on
Thursday... Then steadily warming as surface high pressure builds
over the area on Friday, sliding offshore late Friday and Saturday.

Highs in the upper 30s to mid 40s Thu Fri warm back into the 50s
Saturday... And well into the 50s to 60s by Sunday.

Remaining dry through the Saturday night. Rain chances increase by
late next weekend, as an amplifying upper trough over the plains is
forecast to lift across the plains from the desert southwest
fri sat. Gulf is wide open during this time frame, and expect llvl
moisture to surge north into the area ahead of this feature, with a
period of showers late next weekend. Worth noting that there is good
to excellent agreement among the GEFS eps early next week, as both
show temperatures dropping back quickly behind the associated cold
front into early next week.

Aviation 12z Monday through Friday
Vfr conditions expected to continue through the bulk of the 12z
taf period. Bkn-ovc mid level cloudiness (cigs mainly 7-9 kft)
moving across the local area attm... Expected to continue into
the morning hours... W most CIGS lifting to above 12 kft for
late this morning-this eve. Generally light S winds early
today... Increasing to 10-15 kt through the rest of day. Sfc high
pres remains off the SE coast W dry conditions continuing. The
next chance for widespread precipitation and flight
restrictions comes after 06-09z 23 through (early) Tue aftn
with a passing cold front. Gusty ssw winds (to 20-30 kt) early
tue shift to the wnw late in the day along W potential for
widespread ifr CIGS (and shras). Isold tstms possible with the
front mainly Tue morning. Dry andVFR conditions then prevail
late tue-fri.

Marine
High pressure over the waters today will keep S winds below 15 kt
waves seas 1-2 ft. Winds will begin to increase tonight as a
deepening low over the great lakes pushes its associated cold front
toward the region by tues morning. Winds will increase to 15 to 25
kt from the s-sw prior to daybreak tues, continuing thru
midday early aftn, with seas on the coastal waters building to 4-6
ft; waves 3-4 ft on the bay. Scas remain in effect for all waters.

Hard to get gales with warm s-sw winds over cold water this time of
year, but did keep mention of a few gusts to 35 kt for our northern
coastal waters. Once the front clears the area tues afternoon, winds
will shift to the west 10-15 kt tues night Wed and then northwest on
Thursday. Waves seas subside to 1-3 ft.&&

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.
