402 am edt Sat may 27 2017

Synopsis High pressure overhead this morning will move
offshore later today. A wave of low pressure will move across
the area this afternoon or evening pushing a weak front south
of the area late tonight. A stronger cold front will move
through the area Monday. High pressure will return to the area
mid next week.

Near term through tonight Weakening t-storm complex over
oh early this morning is associated with a low pressure system
over indiana. Weakening showers will move across the area
mainly after daybreak, but will be insignificant. The low pres
center will continue to move east across the area this
afternoon or this evening and will set up a warm front across
the southern half of the fcst area. Nssl wrf-arw and instability
fcst fields from different models indicate the area from
augusta county south and east through charlottesville will be
the prime area for strong potentially severe convective
development later this afternoon and early this evening.

Damaging winds and large hail appear to be the main threat.

0-6km flow around 30kt should keep storms moving with flash
flooding risk low despite saturated soils and potential training
convection. The low pres system and associated front will push
south of the area later tonight with showers ending.

Short term Sunday through Monday night Sunday will likely
start out quiet, but with plenty of low clouds. Low pressure
will be tracking from the mid-ms valley to southwest ontario by
late Sunday night. A sfc trof will establish across the area
during the afternoon with pwats increasing over 1.5 inches.

Widespread convection appears likely Sun afternoon and evening
with potential for flash flooding especially west of the blue
ridge given saturated soils. Convection begins to weaken and
shift east late Sun night due to loss heating and sfc trof
shifting east. Convection could redevelop east of the blue
ridge Mon afternoon with actual frontal passage.

Long term Tuesday through Friday
Upper level low pressure will be slowly moving across ontario and
quebec during the Tuesday through Thursday time frame. While overall
flow will be from the SW to W aloft, there will still be
opportunities for shortwave troughs to dive through the area. It
does appear there will be two additional boundaries following
Monday's front that will drop southeast through the middle of the
week. The second (likely late Wednesday or Thursday looks to be the
stronger of the two in terms of airmass change. While this pattern
is a little unsettled, rain chances should be scattered and
instability for thunderstorms limited.

Ensemble spread increases toward the end of the weak regarding the
upper air pattern and evolution of the closed low. However, there
should be a dry period at some point as surface high pressure builds
into the area behind the cold front.

Above normal temperatures on Tuesday will decrease through the
remainder of the week behind the frontal passages. Highs will settle
into the 70s with lows in the 50s, which is near normal.

Aviation 08z Saturday through Wednesday Vfr conditions
today, but with morning showers. Kcho terminal will be the most
vulnerable to t-storms today with brief MVFR ifr conditions
possible. Widespread convection Sun evening with flying
restrictions likely.

Overall Tuesday and Wednesday should beVFR, but there could be some
scattered showers and perhaps a thunderstorm as weak fronts move
through the area.

Marine Gradient winds below sca, but winds and waves higher
near t-storms.

Winds are forecast to remain below SCA criteria Tuesday and
Wednesday, although a cold front on Wednesday could lead to slightly
higher winds.

Tides coastal flooding Minor coastal flooding expected at
straits point for the next several high tide cycles.

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.
