Synopsis
High pressure will settle near bermuda today with hot and humid
conditions returning and persisting through at least the first
half of next week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
High pressure continues to shift further offshore away from the
mid-atlantic... With a warming moistening southerly flow
strengthening. Highs this afternoon m u80s... Near normal for
late june.

While we kept forecast dry for now... Would not be be completely
surprised to see a stray shower (or brief thunderstorm) across
the higher terrain along west of the blue ridge during peak
afternoon heating. Any activity would be short-lived, very
localized, and would dissipate by mid-evening.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Saturday
Temperatures more typical for the end of june early july will
persist into Saturday. Outside of the higher elevations
temperatures will approach 90 both afternoons with lows near 70.

Precipitation chances will be slim in the next 48 hours -
perhaps some orographically induced showers thunderstorms Friday
afternoon evening, but the best chance will be Saturday
afternoon. Low pressure over ontario quebec with a cold front
dropping into ny state and a weak trough approaching the
mountains will serve as the focus for storms. Bufkit profiles
show a weak unidirectional wind field, so at this moment pulse
severe looks to be the worse case scenario.

With summer precipitation forecasting I am usually hesitant to
go beyond "chance" five periods out. Given we have been
advertising "likely" in the west as our surrounding offices, and
gfs is forecasting 70 pops i'll hold with the 60 pop Saturday
afternoon west of the blue ridge.

Long term Saturday night through Wednesday
Typical summertime conditions expected for late in the weekend and
into next week with daily chances for afternoon evening convection
and very warm temperatures.

A weakening frontal boundary that approaches Saturday will stall
near the region Saturday night into Sunday, keeping chances for
showers and thunderstorms in the forecast. This boundary will remain
near or just north of the area into next week, separating a
hot humid air mass to the south from a cooler canadian air mass to
the north. Thus there will be chances for isolated scattered
showers thunderstorms each day, but the vast majority of the time
should be dry.

Will show highs upper 80s to low 90s through the period for now,
with lows in the 60s 70s, but will be dependent on frontal
position.

Aviation 13z Thursday through Monday
Vfr conditions continue today through midday Saturday.

Showers thunderstorms will be possible Saturday afternoon,
especially at iad mrb cho.

MainlyVFR expected through at least Monday. Isolated-scattered
showers thunderstorms possible, so some brief reductions are
possible.

Marine
Southerly channeling ongoing on the chesapeake bay tidal
potomac - a sure sign of summer. While wind gusts have largely
been below SCA criteria thus far this morning... Expect winds to
increase to AOA sca threshold by afternoon as southerly flow
continues to strengthen.

This will likely reoccur Friday into Saturday with SCA possible.

Mainly sub-sca conditions expected Saturday night through Monday.

There is a chance for isolated-scattered showers thunderstorms each
afternoon and evening, which may contain locally gusty winds.

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.
