Weak sfc boundary remains over the fa... Roughly from about fvx-
mfv. N of the boundary... Fg remains w/ vsbys mainly 1-3sm... Though
vsbys 1/4-1/2sm found over much of the lower md ERN shore (and
the adjacent waters). Will re-issue sps for locally dense fg
early this morning on the lower md ERN shore. The boundary will
be lifting N through the morning hours... Therefore expect
slow/gradual improvement in the fg/vsbys (from s-n).

ric-sby line... Becoming partly sunny by aftn. All zones will be
back in the warm sector... Even eventually on the eastern shore.

Aside from locally cooler readings at the immediate coast...

most areas will rise into the m-u70s. Not much forcing for
widespread precip (after early-mid morning), but will carry 20%
pops for aftn showers (tstms well inland).

Short term /6 pm this evening through Wednesday/
Upper level ridging begins to break down tonight... As the front
approaches from the W and will carry chc pops west of i-95
after midnight/20% or less e. Warm with lows mainly 55-60 f.

Upper level trough pushes into the area Tue as a sfc cold front
passes arrives late in the day. Continued warm w/ highs well
into the 70s to near 80f. There will be a higher chance for
showers and aftn tstms. Will continue with 40-50% pops most
areas. There will be some potential for a few stronger storms
tue aftn/evening as speed and directional increases and sfc dew
pts approach 60f... But overall not looking like widespread
severe wx. Drying late Tue night with lows mainly 50-55 f... W/
partly/mostly sunny conditions wed. Somewhat cooler but still a
little above avg with highs 60-65f near the coast and in the
u60s-l70s well inland.

down over the area to along the east coast. Decent chc for
showers and possible tstms later Thu night into early sat
morning, as low pressure and another associated cold front
approaches and moves acrs the region. Dry wx and high pressure
returns for Sat aftn thru sun.

Highs in the mid 50s to lower 60s thu, in the upper 50s to mid

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
