Synopsis
High pressure over the ohio valley will remain overhead through
tonight before moving offshore on Sunday. Several waves of low
pressure will then pass near the region, the first on Sunday
night, and the second on Monday night. A stronger cold front
will then approach the region from the northwest Wednesday.

Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
High pressure will remain overhead late tonight while low
pressure moves northeast into the midwest. A southwest flow will
develop aloft, and this will cause relatively warmer and more
moist air to overrun the surface cold air in place. Therefore,
clouds are expected to increase, especially north west of the
i-95 corridor. Did tweak temps down a bit in rural areas for
radiational cooling, but temps may hold steady or even rise if
the clouds do develop overnight.

The 18znam continues to show the possibility of drizzle freezing
drizzle toward morning, but most other guidance remains dry.

Will continue with the dry forecast for now since the low-levels
below 2kft are progged to be dry, but still cannot completely
rule out drizzle. Patchy fog is also possible. Lows will range
from the mid to upper 20s in the colder valleys and rural areas,
to the mid and upper 30s in downtown washington and baltimore.

Short term 6 am Sunday morning through Monday night
Southerly flow will develop on Sunday as the weak area of low
pressure moves into the ohio valley. Mostly cloudy skies are
expected, but conditions should remain dry for just about
everywhere. Highs from the mid 40s to low 50s.

The wave of low pressure will pass by near or just to the north
Sunday night. Some light showers are possible overnight, mainly
near the pa border and across eastern WV and western md.

Forecast temperature profiles suggest any precipitation should
be in the form of rain. Lows in the mid 30s to near 40f.

The first area of low pressure will pass eastward on Monday,
while a second low is progged to develop near or west of the
area by Monday afternoon along a frontal boundary. Thus, chances
for rain showers will be on the upward trend Monday, although
at this point, highest probabilities appear west of i-95 and the
metros during the day. The low will move near the region Monday
night and offshore Tuesday morning with the highest chances of
precipitation during this time. Most locations likely to see
rain showers, but a change to snow showers over the higher
terrain appears likely as cold air advection occurs behind the
system Monday night into early Tuesday. A light accumulation of
snow is possible. Highs Monday in the upper 40s to mid 50s with
lows Monday night in the 30s to around 40f.

Long term Tuesday through Saturday
On Tuesday, expecting high pressure to return to the region behind a
passing cold front, bringing dry weather for most of the
region. However, some upslope snow showers are possible along
the allegany front throughout the day, but not expecting much,
if anything, east of there. Cooler air following the frontal
passage will bring continued below average temperatures to the
region, with highs only expected to reach the mid to upper 40s.

On Wednesday, high pressure builds into the region, with dry
conditions expected across the entire area. Temperatures will again
be below average, with temps in the mid 40s. Another cold front will
drop through the region on Wednesday night or early Thursday
morning. This front does not have much moisture or upper forcing to
support precipitation. However, it will bring in much colder air.

High temperatures may struggle to reach 40 on Thursday. With high
pressure building in though, expect it to be a dry day at least.

High pressure continues to build into the region on Friday, bringing
continued dry conditions. Temperatures may rebound slightly, but
remain below average.

Aviation 02z Sunday through Thursday
Vfr expected through late this evening. Low level stratus
clouds are expected to form late tonight and especially Sunday
morning, and MVFR is likely for mrb and cho, and possible at
iad. Lesser chances for MVFR exist eastward to bwi mtn. Its also
not out of the realm of possibilities that some patchy
fog drizzle occur at mrb cho.

Potential for MVFR stratus continues Sunday night into Monday,
with the highest chances continuing at mrb.

Vfr is expected through the long term period. Main issues will
just be periods of gusty winds with passing cold fronts, which
look mostly dry at this point.

Marine
As high pressure builds into the region through Sunday, winds
will trend lighter and sub SCA conditions are expected through
the weekend. Gradient will also remain weak over the waters
Monday and Monday night as weak low pressure approaches from the
west with sub-sca conditions forecast.

Sca conditions will be possible Tuesday as a cold front departs the
region. Winds probably diminish Wednesday.

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.
