Synopsis
High pressure will remain across the mid atlantic through the
rest of the week and this weekend. A low pressure system may
affect the region early next week.

Near term through tonight
A sprawling area of high pressure will continue moving into the
area this afternoon, cresting overhead late tonight and
Wednesday morning. This will result in sunny skies and
relatively light winds through the rest of the afternoon, with
clear skies and calm winds overnight. This will provide for
ideal radiational cooling conditions, with lows in the 30s for
much of the area, except in the 40s in the immediate urban
centers and along the shorelines of the chesapeake and tidal
potomac. The growing season ended last night for western
allegheny, mineral, grant, pendleton, and highland counties, so
no frost freeze headlines there. Otherwise we have issued freeze
warnings in the shenandoah valley for lows 30-32f, and frost
advisories for much of the rest of the area, except the zones along
the western shore of the chesapeake bay. The coldest readings
will be in sheltered valleys away from large bodies of water and
away from urban areas.

Short term Wednesday through Thursday night
Surface high pressure will remain in control Wednesday, although
will gradually shift southward by Wednesday night as a weak
system moves into new england Wednesday night into Thursday. We
may see an increase in some high clouds Wednesday night into
Thursday morning as the system passes by to the north, but
otherwise no sensible impacts. High pressure will then expand
back northward Thursday night.

Temperatures will be moderating through the week, with highs
Wednesday in the upper 60s to around 70f, and reaching the low
to mid 70s on Thursday. Low temperatures will be a bit milder
than tonight, generally from 35-45f Wednesday night and 40-50f
Thursday night, with 50s in the urban centers and along the
chesapeake and tidal potomac shorelines. There may be some areas
of frost again Wednesday night given these temperatures,
although not as widespread as tonight.

Long term Friday through Monday
High pressure system centered near or over our area
will keep dry condition on Friday as it slowly moves offshore on
Saturday. Condtions will continue to be dry on Sunday as it moves
away from the coast.

A cold front will approach from the west on Monday with a wave
of low pressure tracking through it as an upper level trough
amplifies over eastern conus. Guidance suggest precipitation
associated with the cold front could start as early as Monday
afternoon and last into Tuesday with periods of heavy rain at
times.

High temperatures will be between the low to mid 70s on Friday to
the mid to upper 70s on Monday. High temperature decreases on
Tuesday into the 60s.

Aviation 19z Tuesday through Sunday
High pressure will provide mostly clear skies and light winds
through Sunday.

Marine
High pressure will crest overhead tonight and remain nearby
through Saturday, before moving offshore Sunday. A weak system
will pass by to the north Thursday night. Winds will be 10 kt
or less for much of the time, with the exception of Thursday
night when gusts may approach small craft advisory criteria.

Tides coastal flooding
Anomalies have begun to recover today as northwest winds have
abated. While no flooding is currently forecast, the sensitive
sites of straits point, annapolis, and washington dc may
reach action stage and will need to be monitored.

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.
