Synopsis
High pressure will build in from the great lakes through the
middle of the week and slide southeastward offshore late in the
week. A frontal boundary may approach the region on Friday. An
area of low pressure will then move eastward from the ohio
valley this weekend.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Northerly flow has overspread the area and will continue through
the day as the area of low pressure pulls away and a strong
surface high builds eastward through the great lakes. Clouds
have begun their retreat southward early this morning and will
complete their evacuation of the region by mid to late morning
with full sunshine expected for the majority of the day. Dew
points have been slow to fall, but drier air is nearby across
pennsylvania and this will encompass the area by late morning or
so. Temperatures will run about 5-10 degrees below the normals
for the date, with highs from the upper 40s to low 50s. A breeze
up to about 20 mph or so will also be around making it feel a
bit chillier.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Thursday night
The surface high will move directly overhead tonight and slide
slightly eastward during the day Wednesday. This will lead to
clear skies and slackening winds tonight, with mostly sunny
skies expected again on Wednesday aside from a few high clouds.

With ideal radiational cooling conditions tonight, temperatures
will fall substantially, and lows by morning will range from
20-30f for most locations, except 30-34f in the urban centers
and along the tidal potomac chesapeake. Temperatures during the
day Wednesday will tick up slightly from today as the air mass
gradually moderates. Highs will range in the low to mid 50s.

The high will shift southeastward and further offshore by
Thursday promoting the development of southerly flow. Heights
will also begin to build aloft. This will lead to more rapidly
moderating temperatures and continued mainly dry conditions. As
a low pressure system moves well north of the area and a frontal
boundary sags southward, it is possible a stray shower or two
can make it into western md and eastern wv, although for now will
keep any probability of that below 20 percent for
Thursday Thursday night. Lows Wednesday night 30-35f, highs
Thursday in the low to mid 60s, and lows Thursday night in the
40s.

Long term Friday through Monday
A ridge of high pressure extending from the western atlantic across
the southeastern u.S. Will persist Friday and Saturday, with
primarily zonal flow aloft. This will promote mostly dry conditions
with above normal temperatures for late march. However, a stalled
frontal boundary will be lingering off to our north and west near
the ohio valley and lower great lakes region. This will be enough to
maintain low end chance pops in the forecast both days, with our
mountain zones favored with the higher pops.

The upper level pattern turns more cyclonic on Saturday as a trough
digs southward from canada and surface low pressure over the central
u.S. Tracks toward the great lakes. This will give the
aforementioned frontal boundary the kick needed to drive toward our
region heading into Sunday. The front and upper trough will swing
through the area by late Sunday, increasing shower chances area wide
during the day. Behind the frontal passage, high pressure will build
toward the region from the west Sunday night and Monday, before
settling overhead Monday night. Expect dry conditions and below
normal temperatures for the beginning of april.

Aviation 07z Tuesday through Saturday
Any early morning MVFR stratus will exit the region by 09z,
withVFR expected under clearing skies for the remainder of
today, and will persist through at least Thursday night with
high pressure nearby. Northerly winds will gust up to near 20
knots or so today, but winds lessen tonight through Wednesday
before turning southerly by Thursday.

Vfr conditions expected Friday and Saturday as southerly flow
dominates with high pressure to the south and east of the terminals.

Any precipitation threat will likely remain off to the north and
west through Saturday as a stalled frontal boundary lingers near the
ohio valley and lower great lakes region.

Marine
Today will feature northerly winds as high pressure builds in
from the great lakes with gusts 20-30 knots and SCA is in
effect. Winds are expected to diminish tonight as the surface
high moves overhead. Sub-sca winds are then expected under the
influence of high pressure through Thursday morning. The next
chance of SCA conditions will be later Thursday as southerly
flow increases, but this appears marginal at this time.

Sub-sca likely Friday, but SCA conditions will be possible on
Saturday and Saturday night under a gusty southerly flow with
high pressure off the southeast coast and a frontal boundary
lingering well northwest of the waters.

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.
