Synopsis
High pressure will build overhead tonight before moving offshore
Saturday through Saturday night. A weak cold front will
approach from the north and linger nearby Sunday and Monday.

Bermuda high pressure sets up toward the middle portion of next
week, resulting in hot and humid conditions over much of the
eastern united states.

Near term through tonight
A weak boundary over central virginia will continue to drop
south through this evening and high pressure will build overhead
tonight. Dry and less humid conditions are expected during this
time. MAX temps late this afternoon will be in the lower to
middle 80s for most areas and low temps tonight will be in the
upper 50s to the lower and middle 60s. Shortwave energy dropping
through in the northwest flow aloft will bring more high and
mid-level clouds late this afternoon and tonight.

Short term Saturday through Sunday night
High pressure will move offshore Saturday through Saturday night
and a return southerly flow will bring more warm and humid
conditions. The heat and humidity will lead to scattered showers
and thunderstorms, especially northwest of interstate 95, with
the best chance being near and west of the blue ridge during the
afternoon and evening hours. Higher instability along with a
pressure trough and moderate shear may be enough to cause an
isolated threat for severe thunderstorms Saturday afternoon and
evening, especially west of the blue ridge mountains where the
higher instability will be located.

For Saturday night through Sunday night, an upper-level high
will remain to our south with the polar jet remaining well to
our north. Therefore, a nearly zonal flow will setup over our
area during this time. High pressure will sprawled across the
southeastern CONUS into the atlantic, allowing for warm and
humid conditions. The heat and humidity will lead to an unstable
atmosphere, and with shortwave energy in the zonal flow aloft
this will bring the chances for showers and thunderstorms.

Timing these upper-level disturbances is difficult this far out,
so confidence in exact timing and location of storms is low. As
of now, it appears that the best chance for thunderstorms will
be Sunday afternoon into Sunday night across northern and
central areas. This is when most guidance shows stronger
shortwave energy passing through, and even a weak cold front
dropping into our area in response to a stronger system moving
through eastern canada. Some storms may be strong to locally
severe due to higher amounts of instability along with moderate
shear profiles, but confidence remains low.

Long term Monday through Friday
The large scale pattern remains fairly constant through much of
the upcoming week. A subtropical ridge will be positioned over
the southeastern conus, perhaps becoming flattened suppressed
by the end of the week. Lower heights will be located near
hudson bay and the intermountain west. That means the flow will
be more zonal locally and fronts will have trouble making much
southward progress.

For Monday, the front will be near or south of the area, with a
low chance of showers and storms and slightly cooler (but
still above normal. The front will lift back to the north
Tuesday into Tuesday night, so there could be a few showers and
storms. As low pressure moves northeast into canada Wednesday
and the bermuda high strengthens, we'll be solidly in the warm
sector and convection should be more suppressed. This will
likely be the hottest day of the week with temperatures likely
reaching the 90s in many areas.

The front will slide southeast Thursday into Friday in response
to a series of stronger shortwave troughs crossing canada.

This will bring another opportunity for showers and storms,
although the timing and coverage is rather uncertain at this
range, so pops in the forecast remain low. Temperatures will
trend down a bit, though remaining near seasonable normals.

Aviation 18z Friday through Wednesday
Vfr conditions are expected most of the time through Sunday
night. Northwest winds will gust around 20 knots before
diminishing around sunset. Light winds are expected tonight
before turning southerly Saturday.

A couple showers and thunderstorms are possible Saturday
afternoon and evening, especially across the western terminals.

More showers and thunderstorms are possible Sunday and Sunday
night, but coverage should be isolated to scattered and much of
the time will be dry. Some storms may be strong to locally
severe, but confidence remains low.

There is a chance of sub-vfr clouds at times Monday into Tuesday
with a front near or south of the area. There will also be a
chance of showers or a few storms.VFR is likely by Wednesday
as high pressure builds.

Marine
A small craft advisory remains in effect for the waters into
this evening, but winds should diminish later tonight as high
pressure briefly builds overhead.

The high will move offshore Saturday and a southerly flow will
develop. An SCA is in effect for the waters Saturday into
Saturday night. A weak cold front may trigger a few showers and
thunderstorms Sunday and Sunday night. Coverage should be
isolated to scattered and much of the time will turn out dry.

However, any storms that do develop may contain gusty winds.

Winds will be light and variable Monday and Tuesday with a front
stalled near the region. A few showers or thunderstorms are
possible, but wouldn't be strong based on current projections.

Southwest winds will develop by Wednesday as the front lifts
north.

Tides coastal flooding
A southerly flow will develop Saturday and anomalies will
increase. Minor tidal flooding is possible for sensitive areas
around high tide late Saturday and Saturday night, but
confidence is low since the flow will turn west of south
Saturday night.

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.
