Synopsis
High pressure will build over the area late tonight and
Wednesday before moving offshore Thursday. Warm conditions
will return for the weekend.

Near term today
As of 3am, a 1021mb surface high is centered over west virginia.

Light north wind persists over the lwx CWA at locales that have not
decoupled. Cool with dewpoints around 50f. This is the coolest
morning since june 9, about 10 degrees below normal for inland
locales.

The high pressure center drifts east across south-central virginia
this morning and off the coast at the mouth of the chesapeake bay
(guidance has been very consistent with this departure point over
the past few days) around midday. A return southerly flow will
overspread the area this afternoon with 850mb temps increasing from
7c to 13c in the wake. This makes for a difficult temperature
forecast, expect generally low 80s. Mid 80s are possible for areas
where 850 temps rise into the teens by mid-afternoon.

Southerly flow keeps min temps about 10 degrees higher for inland
locales tonight, or near normal.

Short term tonight through Friday night
Return to summerlike conditions Thursday into this weekend as a
bermuda high sets up. 850mb temps in the upper teens both Thursday
and Friday will allow MAX temps into the low 90s with dewpoints
rising into the low 60s Thursday and mid 60s Friday. Heat indices
rise to the mid 90s Friday.

Expect dry conditions through Thursday due to lack of moisture.

Terrain driven convective thunderstorms can be expected Friday
thanks to an increase in moisture from the continued southerly
flow.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday
Earlier in the week there were more questions about when the
best chance for rain would be this weekend - it has become
clearer that the best chance will be Saturday night early
Sunday as upper trough cold front track across the northeastern
us. Precipitation chances will decrease Sunday afternoon.

Highs around 90. Lows in the low 70s east of the mountains mid
to upper 60s west.

Monday is looking dry as east coast is in between shortwaves.

Highs again right around climo norms for early july.

The 4th. Temperatures area still looking to be around climo
norms - no excessive heat but highs around 90 for many locales.

The next shortwave boundary appears be positioned to the
northwest of the area Tuesday morning, and approaching the
mason-dixon line Tuesday evening. This will serve as a
potantial trigger focus for convection so have chance of
thunderstorms in the 4th forecast.

Aviation 07z Wednesday through Sunday
Vfr prevails through the week as high pressure drifts across the
area today and to bermuda through Thursday night. North winds this
morning become southerly this afternoon and persist into this
weekend. Summerlike conditions return Thursday.

Thunderstorms in the terrain west of the dc metros Friday due to
increased temperature and moisture.

This weekend - majority of the time should seeVFR conditions at
all TAF sites. Chances of thunderstorms will be possible late
Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.

Marine
Surface high pressure drifts off the mouth of the bay early this
afternoon. Northerly flow gusting to 20 knots over southern md
waters will diminish through the mid morning. South winds begin late
this afternoon with southerly channeling into marginal small
craft advisory range at times tonight through Friday night.

Gusts may reach SCA values late Saturday into Sunday morning.

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible during this time as
well.

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.
