Version 3.4
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.

Update
The near term section has been updated below.

Synopsis
Issued at 332 pm edt Thu may 24 2018
above normal temperatures will continue through the forecast
period, with a warm end to one of the warmest mays of record. Off
and on small chances for thunderstorms can be expected through
much of the period with a warm and humid air mass in place. Better
chances for rain and storms will arrive around mid week as an
upper low with more tropical moisture moves up from the gulf.

Near term rest of tonight
Issued at 930 pm edt Thu may 24 2018
going forecast on track and no changes made. Previous discussion
follows...

clear skies will be the rule tonight under the influence of high
pressure. With pretty dry air in the low levels, should see
temperatures drop fairly quickly and not expecting fog
development. Look for lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s, similar
to a short term model consensus.

Short term Friday through Sunday
Issued at 332 pm edt Thu may 24 2018
a high pressure system over the area will be on its way out during
the short term. High confidence that southerly flow over the
weekend will keep temperatures up. Temps in the mid to upper 80s
for Friday are expected to climb into the low 90s by Sunday. Heat
index values will top out in the middle 90s. A combination of a
shallow trough from the west and a tropical system out of the gulf
will bring in low chances of rain and thunderstorms over the
weekend but confidence is low on exact timing. These chances will
be highest in the southern counties closest to the best available
moisture.

Long term Sunday night through Thursday
Issued at 248 pm edt Thu may 24 2018
the pattern can be summed up in one word through the extended...

summer. Persistent ridging aloft over the ohio valley will
maintain hot and humid conditions across the region through the
period with a gradual increase in tropical moisture courtesy of
the system coming onshore over the northern gulf of mexico by the
middle of next week.

The summer-like pattern of late will continue but with even
warmer temperatures than that experienced so far in may as mid
level heights approach 590dam and 850mb temps nearing 18-19c early
next week. Taking into account the feedback from the dry ground
over the region which models notoriously do poorly with... Have
upped highs for memorial day a bit as all signs point to low 90s
for much of the area. Highs will slowly slip back into the upper
80s by mid week as the tropical moisture fetch increases into the
region and the potential for scattered convection grows.

Carrying low pops focused in the afternoon and evening most days
with diurnally driven convection in the absence of bl shear and
forcing aloft. Have capped pops at high chance Wednesday with
still lower than desired confidence in potential impacts locally
from the tropical disturbance expected to move into the northern
gulf next week. Considering recent trends over the last few
weeks... Would not be shocked to see precip chances drop slowly as
we get into next week. This would certainly be disappointing as
the recent stretch of drier than normal conditions over the last
six weeks has left much of the region in need of rainfall.

vfr through the period. Clear skies overnight and dry atmosphere
should prevent any fog formation. Light and variable winds
overnight should increase to 4 to 8 kts Friday out of the
southwest. Could see some CU Friday afternoon, and some mid level
clouds start to move in from the southwest before the end of the
period, but no impact to flight category is expected.

Ind watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
