Synopsis
High pressure remains centered northwest of the area through the
end of the week. Tropical cyclone jose will continue to track
northeast to a position off the southern new england coast later
today, then meander there through the weekend.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Ts jose continuing to circulate sse of SRN new england through
the rest of the day. Far ene locations of fa remain in WRN periphery
of the storms circulation... And will have sct-bkn sc-ac and
possible isold shras (into this afternoon). Otherwise... Subsidence
evident on satl over the rest of the fa and will result in a
mostly sunny... Warm day. Moisture now over the ERN oh valley
into the central mtns expected to stay wsw of the local area.

Near term guidance suggests a diminishing trend and no
convection reaching far wsw zones. Highs 85-90f... Except l80s at
the beaches.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Friday night
Models suggest any evening convection to the west slides SW of the
fa then dissipates after 00z across the nc piedmont. Otw, mstly clr
to pt cldy and warm tonight. Lows in the mid 60s to lwr 70s.

Any convection from the lingering moisture stays west and south of
the fa Thursday as high pressure continues to dominate into the
weekend. Expect pt to mstly sunny days with mstly clr to pt cldy
nights. Highs Thursday and Friday in the low-mid 80s except 75-80 at
the beaches. Lows from the lwr 60s NW to lwr 70s se.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday
High pressure builds over the ERN great lakes and NE CONUS early
next week as the remnant low (jose) slowly circulates ese of
new england. Other than periods of sc off the ocean (by the late
in the weekend-early next week) ESP at the coast... Expect dry wx
with above normal temps.

Highs sat-sun in the mid-upr 80s except lwr 80s at the coast. Highs
mon and Tue in the upr 70s-mid 80s. Lows in the low-mid 60s inland,
upr 60s to around 70f at the coast.

Extended models continue to struggle with the tropical systems into
early next week. It may depend on where jose's low tracks which may
eventually help to steer maria. The latest GFS and to a certain point
the ECMWF has maria on a similar track to what jose did (i.E.

Moving north along the eastern seaboard my mid week, but how
close to the coast???). To early for anything specific, but we
may be doing this all over again for maria next week. Stay
tuned.

Aviation 16z Wednesday through Sunday
Ts jose continues to lift NE away from the area today. Sct-bkn
MVFR sc along the coast this morning becomes sct CU this aftn.

Wnw AOB 10 kts.

Outlook: generallyVFR dry conditions are anticipated through the
weekend as high pressure builds into the region.

Marine
Tropical storm jose will continue to lift north of the waters
this morning before moving off the northeast coast later today. Jose
will linger off the northeast coast through the weekend before
dissipating. Swells from distant hurricane maria will begin to
impact the waters by this weekend.

Have allowed the SCA headlines at the mouth of the bay to end,
with the only headlines now confined to the coastal waters for
5-8 ft seas. Marine conditions are expected to continue to
improve through the aftn, with winds diminishing to 10-15 kt or
less across the coastal waters after 18z and 5-10 kt or less
elsewhere. Sub- SCA conditions are expected through Thursday
for a majority of the waters except for lingering 5 ft+ seas on
the coastal waters. Seas will once again ramp up Friday and into
the weekend as swells from distant hurricane maria begin to
impact the region. Additional small craft advisories will likely
be be needed for the coastal waters by this weekend.

Tides coastal flooding
Made some adjustments to the forecast, with tidal departures
now about the same in the upper bay as the lower bay (averaging
close to +1.5 ft throughout). This due to water not exiting the
bay efficiently (looking at currents at the CAPE henry channel
marker currents). The level at cambridge may be exacerbated by
an additional few tenths of a foot due to NW winds ~10 kt
trapping water in the inlet. Have upgraded to a coastal flood
warning for the bay side of the md eastern shore
(dorchester wicomico somerset) for the upcoming high tide cycle
later this aftn early evening. Elsewhere, will allow the
warning for the va ERN shore and ocean side of the md shore to
expire shortly after noon, with just additional minor flooding
anticipated for the tide tonight and possibly on thu. Will
update these products early this aftn with additional coastal
flood advisory headlines.

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

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.
