Update
The aviation section has been updated below.

Synopsis
Issued at 347 pm edt Tue mar 19 2019
a low pressure system will move into the area late tonight into
Wednesday night, bringing rain showers to the area. In the wake of
this system, surface high pressure will reassert control and keep
things dry into the first half of the weekend. Stronger
disturbances later in the weekend into early next week will
provide chances for rainfall as well.

Near term tonight
Issued at 347 pm edt Tue mar 19 2019
most of the night will be dry as the next weather maker approaches
from the west. Will carry chances late tonight in the far
northwest but confine most of the pops to after 12z into
Wednesday. Otherwise, expect a steady increase in cloud cover
overnight as the system approaches.

Consensus temperatures looked ok but perhaps slightly too cool
given increasing clouds and looking at upstream numbers. Made
minor adjustments.

Short term Wednesday through Friday
Issued at 347 pm edt Tue mar 19 2019
expect showers to move into the area steadily during the day on
Friday, with most areas seeing at least scattered showers by
midday into the afternoon. QPF will generally be light and impact
should be minimal.

Showers will linger into Wednesday evening before tapering off as
the system exits the area. Blend wants to keep some pops in
Thursday morning across the east, but removed these as forecast
soundings are quite dry by this time.

The remainder of the short term will be dry under the influence of
surface high pressure.

Consensus temperatures were reasonable and required only minor
adjustment, mainly on Wednesday when widespread cloud cover and
showers should help to limit warming.

Long term Friday night through Tuesday
Issued at 319 pm edt Tue mar 19 2019
the long term starts out dry and quiet but gets more active with
time as a trough of low pressure aloft digs over the eastern u.S.

This will bring chances for rain into the area from Sunday night
on. Timing out the individual waves through the upper flow is a
useless endeavor this far out, so will keep the mainly broadbrush
chance pops from the consensus initialization. Temperatures at
this time look near normal to start, a little above normal Sunday,
and then below normal.

Aviation discussion for the 20 00z TAF issuance
Issued at 733 pm edt Tue mar 19 2019
vfr conditions will prevail into tomorrow afternoon. But, at that
point, MVFR will become the predominant flight category as
ceilings and visibilities deteriorate with rain showers
accompanying a low pressure system. Meanwhile, light and variable
winds will become mainly southwesterly after Wed 15z and much
stronger. Sustained speeds will increase to 12 to 15 kts with
gusts up to 25 kts.

Ind watches warnings advisories None.

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.
