Synopsis
High pressure will build overhead tonight before moving off the
coast Thursday. Low pressure will pass through the area
Friday. High pressure will gradually return Saturday and Sunday
before another low pressure possibly impacts the area Monday
and Tuesday next week.

Near term /until 6 am Thursday morning/
Cold front has pushed well south of the region with high
pressure building in from the north. For this evening, winds
will gradually subside over land with mostly clear skies. Later
tonight, next system approaching from the west will cause clouds
to start increasing. In addition, low level flow will become
easterly and this will result in upslope clouds in and just
east of the mountains. Some spotty rain and drizzle is possible
over the southern shenandoah valley. Lows tonight will be cooler
than the last few nights, with readings in the 30s and 40s.

Short term /6 am Thursday morning through Saturday/
Cad will more or less remain in place in the low levels
Thursday with the high pressure sliding eastward to our north.

At the same time, low pressure system will be ejecting out of
the plains with warm/moist air advection. In addition, the
upslope flow will result in lower clouds and perhaps some light
rain or drizzle in the mountains. Highs will be cooler than
today due to the lack of Sun and onshore flow, with 50s
widespread and the cooler spots in the 40s.

Warm and moist air advection continues Thursday night and with
that we'll see increasing chances for rain. Lows mainly in the
40s. Model guidance in good agreement that the low pressure
system will track east-northeastward from near st. Louis
Thursday evening to ohio by Friday afternoon, before
redeveloping near the DELMARVA late Friday and Friday night.

Thus, most widespread coverage of rain expected late Thursday
night and Friday. We'll also have to monitor how far north the
warm sector can make it Friday afternoon. Latest guidance
indicates it may approach portions of central va and southern
md, so have maintained a slight chance of tstorms there Friday
afternoon. Highs on Friday uncertain, with locations that get
south of the warm front possibly heading towards 70, while
northern locales near the mason-dixon line may struggle to reach
50. Showers will begin to slowly wind down Friday night as the
low pulls away and winds turn northwesterly.

Low pressure slides northeast of the region Saturday, but
lingering instability and weak vort MAX could produce a few
stray showers still. Highs will be in the 50s to lower 60s.

Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/
High pressure will settle into the region Sunday through early
Monday. Dry and seasonable temperatures expected throughout the
period.

The next storm system will move into the region midday Monday
through Tuesday, bringing the chance for rain showers to the
region once again.

Brief high pressure will build into the region Wednesday before
the next storm system approaches Wednesday night.

Aviation /19z Wednesday through Monday/
Vfr will continue through at least the first half of Thursday
all terminals. Winds mainly light, less than 10 knots tonight
and Thursday. They will turn northeasterly later tonight, and
east-southeasterly on Thursday. This will help usher in
additional clouds, although ceilings still expected to remain
vfr. Highest chances for some MVFR ceilings will be at cho and
mrb.

Greater chances for sub-vfr conditions will occur Thursday night
through Friday night with widespread rainfall. Ifr conditions
likely.

A northwest flow will allow for cigs/vsbys to improve Saturday
behind departing low pressure... But a few showers cannot be
ruled out.

Vfr conditions evolving Saturday night. Winds northwest 5 knots
Saturday night.VFR conditions expected Sunday into Sunday
night. Winds becoming light and variable Sunday and Sunday
night.

Marine
Small craft advisory remains in effect for all of the waters.

Gusts will taper off late this afternoon and SCA expires at 6
pm for some of the waters. A second surge of northeasterly winds
is expected later tonight, and a SCA will continue for the
chesapeake bay and lower tidal potomac until 6 am Thursday.

Sub-sca winds then expected Thursday, with next potential for
increasing winds on Thursday night/Friday ahead of our next
system, especially across our southern waters.

Low pressure will move away from the waters Saturday and
northwest flow will develop. A small craft advisory may be
needed for portions of the waters during this time.

No marine hazards expected Saturday night through Sunday
night. Winds northwest 5 to 10 knots Saturday night through
Sunday night.

Tides/coastal flooding
Low pressure will pass through the area Friday night. An
onshore flow will develop ahead of the low and this will cause
elevated water levels Friday into Friday night. Minor tidal
flooding near high tide is possible during this time.

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.
