Synopsis
High pressure will build to our south through tonight. The high
will move offshore Tuesday and a cold front will pass through
Tuesday night into Wednesday. High pressure will build back
overhead later Wednesday through thanksgiving day. The high will
build to our south for Friday and Saturday before a cold front
moves through Saturday night.

Near term through tonight
Upper-level trough moving east of us this morning while surface
high pressure builds to the south. Rising heights will allow
plenty of sunshine this afternoon... But temps will still be
below average for this time of year. MAX temps will range from
the upper 30s along the ridges of the allegheny highlands... To
the mid and upper 40s in northern maryland... To the middle 50s
in central virginia.

The high will remain to the south tonight. A weak shortwave in
a southwest flow aloft may bring a few high clouds... But dry
conditions will persist. Min temps will range from the mid and
upper 20s in the colder valleys to the mid and upper 30s in
downtown washington and baltimore.

Short term Tuesday through Wednesday night
High pressure will shift offshore Tuesday while a cold front
moves through the great lakes. A southwest flow in between these
systems will allow for milder conditions. MAX temps will be in
the upper 50s to lower 60s across most locations. There will be
some high clouds in a southwest flow aloft... But the cloud deck
should be thin enough for a partly to mostly sunny sky much of
the day.

The cold front will approach our area from the north and west
Tuesday evening before passing through overnight Tuesday into
early Wednesday morning. There will be separation between the
lift associated with the cold front and deeper moisture to our
south and east. Latest guidance shows that some of this moisture
can get drawn up into the front... Bringing the chance for
showers. The best chance for showers will be across eastern
areas where moisture has a better chance to move in before the
frontal passage.

Any showers early Wednesday morning should dissipate as the cold
front moves off to the south and east. A northwest flow will
cause chillier conditions despite increasing sunshine. High
pressure will settle overhead and it will turn out dry and cold.

Did also want to note that a few snow showers are possible along
and west of the allegheny front Tuesday night into early
Wednesday. However... As discussed earlier moisture should be
limited so any accumulation would be light.

Long term Thursday through Sunday
Longwave western us ridging and east coast troughing will
continue to dominate the weather pattern over the united states
through the holiday weekend. While no significant storm systems
are currently forecast, several upper level impulses will move
through the large-scale troughing.

Sprawling surface high pressure is expected to be in place on
thanksgiving day from the southern plains extending
northeastward through the appalachians. At the same time, weak
shortwave energy in both the northern and southern branches of
the jet stream will be moving towards the east coast and may
lead to surface cyclogensis off the southeastern us coastline.

At this time, the surface ridging and flow aloft is expected to
keep anything that can develop well to our south and east,
leading to a dry and uneventful weather forecast for
thanksgiving day. Surface ridging is expected to persist into
Friday as well, keeping the forecast dry.

By Friday night and Saturday, a more potent northern stream
system will move into the upper midwest, with its associated
cold front barrelling towards the mid-atlantic Saturday night.

Once again, southern stream energy will be present as well near
the southeastern states, and the potential exists for surface
cyclogenesis to occur. At this time, fast flow aloft and
orientation of upper level trough suggests that a track well
offshore is favored. However, chances for rain showers increase,
either with the offshore low or with the cold front itself.

Following the front Sunday, blustery and colder conditions are
likely, along with the potential for snow showers over the
higher terrain.

Temperatures will start out below normal on thanksgiving (40s),
moderate back towards normal or even a bit above for Friday and
Saturday (50s), before falling back below for Sunday (40s).

Aviation 15z Monday through Friday
Vfr conditions will persist through Tuesday. Winds are mostly
below 15 knots at present and will gradually turn to the
southwest this afternoon and continue like so tonight.

On Tuesday, southwest winds will continue, with gusts around 20
knots in the afternoon. A cold front will pass through Tuesday
night into early Wednesday. A few showers are possible along
with subvfr cigs. The best chance for this will be across the
eastern terminals.VFR conditions will return behind the cold
front for later Wednesday through Wednesday night.

Vfr and light winds expected Thursday and Friday with surface
high pressure

Marine
West winds this morning will gradually turn to the southwest
this afternoon. Wind gusts should gradually diminish throughout
the day. SCA continues across portions of the bay thru the day,
but winds may drop below SCA criteria on all waters late in the
afternoon. However, southerly channeling will develop this
evening as high pressure shifts east, with SCA returning, so
the period of sub SCA will likely be less than 6 hours where the
sca remains in effect through the period.

High pressure will move offshore Tuesday. South to southwest
winds will increase during this time ahead of the next cold
front. Therefore, SCA for all the waters Tuesday. The SCA was
extended into Tuesday evening for portions of the waters.

A cold front will pass through the waters late Tuesday night
into Wednesday morning. Northwest winds will pick up behind the
front and an SCA may be needed for portions of the waters later
Wednesday into Wednesday night.

Sub-sca conditions expected Thursday and Friday with surface
high pressure.

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.
