Synopsis
Post-tropical cyclone jose will continue to weaken as it
lingers off the new england coast through the weekend.

Meanwhile, high pressure will expand into the mid-atlantic.

Hurricane maria is forecast to move northward between the
offshore atlantic waters and bermuda through the early part of
next week.

Near term through tonight
Post-tropical cyclone jose continues to spin just off the coast
of SE new england. A spoke of moisture rotating around the west
side of jose has been responsible for a little extra cloud
cover around the local area today. However, this has not stopped
temps from reaching the mid 80s in most places with moderate
humidity levels. Expecting another warm evening with clouds
gradually diminishing overnight. Have inserted patchy fog into
some of the usual locations for early Saturday morning. Lows
tonight in the 60s to around 70.

Short term Saturday through Monday
High pressure at the surface and aloft will be in control of our
weather pattern over the weekend, as ptc jose weakens and
shifts a bit further offshore. High pressure in combination with
nne flow will allow for continued dry weather and above normal
temperatures. Will have to keep and eye on hurricane maria which
will be moving north off the SE coast by Sunday and Monday.

Right now maria is expected to take a course similar to jose,
keeping it well offshore. Highs sat-mon will generally be in the
mid 80s, except upper 70s at the beaches. Lows will range from
the lower 60s inland to upper 60s near the coast.

Long term Monday night through Friday
Hi pres sfc-aloft continues to weaken INVOF NE CONUS Mon night
into tue. Meanwhile... Tropical cyclone maria is expected to
track to (well?) E of the coastal carolinas. Wx conditions tue-
thu remain dependent on the track of tropical cyclone maria. A
track closer to the coast (than that of jose) would bring
increasing winds pops... Esp ERN portions of fa... More to the e
would result in drier-continued warm wx. For now... Generally
going W partly cloudy W low pops (e portions). Monitor
forecasts from the national hurricane center on maria through
the weekend. A cold front is forecast to arrive late next week
(late thu-thu night)... Resulting in cooler wx and possibly
higher pops.

Highs Tue in the u70s-l80s... Wed u70s-mid 80s... L-m80s thu... In
the 70s fri. Lows mon-wed nights mainly 65 to 70f... Then thu
night from the m50s NW to the m60s se.

Aviation 18z Friday through Wednesday
High pressure over the mid atlantic region will promoteVFR
conditions and mostly light wind through the TAF forecast
period. Mid high clouds will tend to disspiate into this
evening. Patchy fog may develop early Saturday morning.

Outlook: generallyVFR dry conditions, with the exception of
patchy morning fog, are anticipated through early next week due
to the influence of high pressure over the region.

Marine
Post-tropical cyclone jose remains centered SE of CAPE cod
early this morning and is forecast to remain nearly stationary
through Saturday morning... Before gradually pushing ewd through
Sunday. Meanwhile, hurricane maria is located nne of the turks
and caicos this afternoon and is forecast to track to the nnw
through Sat and then on a N track through Wed to about
equidistant from the carolina coast and bermuda.

Long period swell continues to propagate toward the coast with seas
generally 3-6 ft. Some portions of the area will have seas fall
at times below 5 ft over the next few days. However... The sca
for hazardous seas will continue... And will be extended to 22z
sun as energetic ene swell will continue. Swell arrives from
maria most likely beginning late this weekend and continuing
into next week. Scas for seas will likely be needed into early
next week. The bulk of the forecast guidance keeps maria
offshore during the early to middle portions of next week.

Monitor the NHC forecast for the official forecast track of
maria. A further increase in seas is expected Monday through
Wednesday along with an increasing N wind tue-thu.

Tides coastal flooding
Water levels expected to remain elevated at all sites through
the weekend... But given that the swell is not as large as what
it has been... They should stay just below flood. Will need to
watch for additional flooding next week... Especially in the
bay... As the swell from maria moves into the area.

High risk for rip currents for all beaches adjacent to coastal
waters continues through Sat as swell nearshore waves will be
slow to subside.

Akq watches warnings advisories
Md... Coastal flood advisory until 6 pm edt this evening for
mdz021>023.

Nc... None.

Va... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory for hazardous seas until 6 pm edt Sunday
for anz650-652-654-656-658.

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.
