Near term through tonight Quiet weather tonight as high
pressure shifts offshore. Warmer tonight due to light srly flow
and veil of high thin clouds mainly across the north.

Short term Thursday through Friday night Summerlike
conditions will establish over the region tomorrow and persist
through the first half of next week and likely beyond with
bermuda surface high pressure and subtropical ridge to the
south. As a result, expect temperatures to climb into the low
90s on Thu and mid 90s on fri. By Friday, there is enough
instability to t-storms over the mtns.

a chance for showers and thunderstorms each period with the better

Monday night, bringing less humid conditions.

The shower and thunderstorm chances return on the 4th of july as an

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
