Synopsis
Weak low pressure will track northeast just off the mid
atlantic coast this evening into early Thursday morning. The
storm tracks east northeast out to sea Thursday while high
pressure builds in from the west. High pressure sliding from the
gulf coast states eastward to off the southeast coast will bring
dry weather and moderating temperatures to the area Thursday
night through Saturday.

Near term until 6 am Thursday morning
Late this aftn, models water vapor imagery indicated upper
level low near the nc tn border, with strong mid level
vorticity vorticity advection pushing into cntrl nc. Latest akq
radar as of 330 pm showed snow was now covering just about all
of the CWA except the extrm NW NRN counties. So far, we have
received snow reports ranging fm near 1 inch over NRN portions
of the area to near 6 inches over scntrl va counties. Based on
the latest hrrr rap model trends, and anticipated upper level
shortwv energy vorticity advection and associated vertical
motion transfer to the mid atlc coast this evening tonight, have
extended the ending times of warnings advisories acrs the cwa.

The highest snow totals will occur over scntrl va into interior
ne nc and interior SE va. Still believe portions of extrm SE va
and coastal NE nc will have to be monitored closely this evening
into tonight for possible higher amts, as models hint at
enhanced frontogenetic forcing in this region. Expect 1 to 2
inches of snow before the pcpn moves off the coast very late
tonight, but could see localized accumulations approaching 3
inches, esply over NE nc. Have an advisory in this area until
3 am Thu morning.

Expect gradual clearing fm wnw to E overnight into Thu morning.

Cold with lows ranging fm the mid teens to lower 20s. So,
driving conditions will still remain slippery after pcpn ends
and temps dropping.

Short term 6 am Thursday morning through Saturday
Mid-level WAA resumes rather quickly Thu aftn with 850mb temps
-2 to -4c at 12z warming to +4-6c by 21z. A cold start to the
day, limited mixing, and mid-level WAA should result in rather
stable lapse rates and surface high temps should only reach the
upper 30s to arnd 40.

High pressure will then slide from the gulf coast states
eastward to off the SE coast Thu night thru sat, and bring dry
weather and moderating temperatures to the area. Lows Thu night
mainly in the lower to mid 20s. Highs on Fri will range fm the
upper 40s to lower 50s. Lows Fri night will range fm the mid 20s
to around 30. Highs on Sat will range thru the 50s.

Long term Saturday night through Wednesday
Milder spell of wx through the extended forecast pd. Pattern evolving
fits transition of mjo through phase 4 toward phase 5... Leading to
aoa normal temperatures. Other than a very wk upper level system
tracking off SE CONUS coast sun... Sfc hi pres and upper level
ridging will be dominant Sun into mon. By late mon... Storm system
expected to track into the WRN great lakes... W its trailing
cold front approaching the mtns. That front will make progress
across the local area Mon night-early Tue W potential shras
(though 12z 17 ECMWF a tad slower than 12z 17 GFS attm).

Drying clearing out and a bit cooler (returning to near seasonal
levels) for Tue afternoon-wed.

Lows Sat night ranging through the 30s. Highs Sun in the l50s
on the ERN shore to 55-60f elsewhere. Lows Sun night mainly
35-40f. Highs Mon in the m50s on the ERN shore to the u50s-l60s
elsewhere. Lows Mon night in the u30s to l40s. Highs Tue in the
l50s on the ERN shore to the m-u50s elsewhere. Lows Tue night in
the l-m30s. Highs Wed in the u40s-l50s.

Aviation 20z Wednesday through Monday
Slow moving cold front is pushing through the region accompanied
by a broad area of light to moderate snow. Widespread MVFR ifr
conditions perists as the area of precipitation moves eastward.

Sby may experience a brief period of light snow but MVFR ifr
clouds will prevail through the afternoon and early evening. The
snow has not reached orf and ecg at 18z and is expected to start
anytime now at phf. Warmer temps will likely see precip start as
light ra at ecg later this afternoon before turning into snow.

Winds will generally be n-ne with gusts 15-25 kt through the
early evening.

Outlook:clearing tonight with a breezy N wind near the coast.

PredominateVFR after midnight then likely Thursday through
Sunday as the trough departs well to the NE and a ridge builds
across the region.

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.
