What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
A front will remain over the carolinas into the appalachian
mountains today through tonight. The front will return north as
a warm front on Tuesday with a cold front expected to pass
through the area on Wednesday. Weak high pressure will build
over the area for the second half of the week.

Near term through tonight
Frontal boundary is stalled out south of the region today across
central va and into central wv. A weakening cluster of showers
and isolated thunderstorms moved into portions of eastern WV and
western va this morning, and some additional progress
southeastward is likely before dissipation this afternoon. By
later this afternoon, some additional shower thunderstorm
development is likely near the frontal boundary and across the
higher terrain. Locally heavy rain is possible, and there is a
low risk for an isolated flooding incident or two, although the
majority of the convection should be south west towards
blacksburg roanoke charleston on the warm side of the boundary.

Otherwise, a general increase in clouds is anticipated, with
highs in the 70s to low 80s.

The front will begin to lift northward tonight.

Any showers thunderstorms should see a weakening trend. Low
clouds and patchy fog may also develop. Warm air advection will
allow for low temperatures to be around 10 degrees above normal
across the region tonight.

Short term Tuesday through Wednesday night
The boundary will return north and east as a warm front Tuesday,
and a southwest flow aloft will continue around high pressure
over the atlantic. The southwest flow will usher in more
moisture across our area, and instability will return due to the
moisture and daytime heating. The boundary will act as the
lifting mechanism for showers and thunderstorms to develop,
with the best chance for convection coming during the afternoon
and evening hours. Pwats over 1.5 inches suggest that there will
be enough moisture for thunderstorms to contain heavy rainfall,
and moderate to perhaps high amounts of instability
thunderstorms may contain gusty winds or hail. However, the
threat for severe thunderstorms is still limited due to the lack
of deep layer shear.

A weak cold front will approach the region Tuesday night before
passing through Wednesday into Wednesday evening. A drier
northwest flow will limit convection behind the boundary
Wednesday, but will still carry the slight chance to chance for
showers and thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon, with the highest
pops across southern areas.

Long term Thursday through Sunday
Weak high pressure will build overhead Thursday before moving
offshore Friday. A north to northwest flow will allow for dry
and less humid conditions Thursday along with sunshine. The
humidity may creep back a bit Friday due to a return flow, but
mainly dry conditions are expected to remain in place.

High pressure will set up over the atlantic for Saturday and
Sunday and a southwest flow will allow for moisture to return,
increasing the chances for popup showers and thunderstorms.

Tropical moisture has the chance to get drawn north into the
area, but confidence is still low at this time. If it does, then
showers and thunderstorms will be more widespread.

Aviation 14z Monday through Friday
A weak front will stall to the south and west today.VFR
conditions are expected through today. The boundary will begin
to lift northward tonight, with warm air advection increasing
aloft, and this may result in low clouds and areas of fog
toward morning.

The front will move into the area Tuesday before a weak cold
front passes through Wednesday. Popup showers and thunderstorms
are likely Tuesday afternoon and evening, but coverage will
diminish overnight. Drier air should allow for any convection to
be isolated or widely scattered Wednesday and confined mainly
toward the south near kcho. Even there, much of the day may be
dry.

High pressure will return for Thursday and Friday withVFR
conditions most likely.

Marine
A weak cold front will stall to the south and west through
tonight. A northeast flow this morning will turn to the
southeast later today into tonight. Winds should remain below
sca criteria during this time.

A warm front will approach the waters Tuesday into Tuesday night
before a cold front passes through Wednesday. Showers and
thunderstorms are likely Tuesday, especially during the
afternoon and evening hours. Some storms may contain gusty
winds. South to southeast winds may approach SCA criteria
Tuesday and a northwest flow behind the cold front may cause
winds to approach SCA criteria Wednesday, but confidence is low
for Tuesday due to the relatively cooler waters.

High pressure will return for Thursday before moving offshore
Friday into the weekend.

Tides coastal flooding
Freshwater continues to decrease as water levels on the potomac
river upstream have crested and they continue to fall.

Therefore, the threat for moderate flooding has ended. Minor
flooding is still expected near times of high tide through
tonight, and it is possible Tuesday for washington dc. Will
continue with the advisory through tonight, and it may need to
be extended into Tuesday as well.

Lwx watches warnings advisories
Dc... Coastal flood advisory until 6 am edt Tuesday for dcz001.

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.
