Synopsis
High pressure across the great lakes region will build across the
middle atlantic later today and remain across the region through
Saturday. Low pressure will move north of the area Sunday and Monday
causing a front to move across the region. More high pressure will
return for later Monday and into Tuesday. A disturbance will arrive
for the middle of next week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Much quieter day in store for the area as surface high pressure
builds NW of the area over the great lakes while at mid lvls heights
rise as the SE ridge tries to build northward in the wake of the
earlier shortwave.

Given good mixing and modest pressure rises, will likely see breezy
northwest winds through most of the daytime hours (gusts generally
in the 20-30 mph range). There will be a considerably drier airmass
in place with cloud cover limited to patchy cirrus and some
stratocumulus (most notable over northern portions of the area).

Given a well-mixed atmosphere, a good amount of sun, and offshore
flow highs will generally run in the mid 70s to low 80s (probably a
bit cooler in the far north where there may be more cloud
cover).

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Saturday
The high will move overhead this evening and then offshore
overnight, which will cause the northwesterly winds to decrease in
speed and veer to a more easterly direction. Models indicate a weak
shortwave diving around the eastern side of the ridge overnight in
the vicinity of delmarva, but am not expecting anything other than
maybe an increase in mid-clouds from this feature. Other than that
overnight mins should cool to near climo , given onshore flow,
lighter winds, and a drier airmass.

Long term Saturday through Thursday
The overall synoptic setup will continue with an upper high
pressure across the south and a rather deep trough over the
western part of the country. A low across canada will guide low
pressure systems and fronts across the great lakes and middle
atlantic this weekend and into the middle of next week. This
means showery conditions with some tstms possible. The most
favored times for the rains are Sat night thru Sun night and
again Wed Thu next week. Since the pattern is more showery, some
locally heavy rains are possible, but the rains will be scattered
and intermittent.

Temperatures will be near normal Saturday, but then turn much
more summer-like Sunday when mercury readings will approach 90
in many areas, save the southern poconos and the shore. The above
normal readings will carry into next week, although highs Mon tue
will be more like low mid 80s. Highs will then go back into the
low 90s Wed and perhaps again thu. Humidity levels will be
somewhat uncomfortable Sunday and then again towards the
middle of next week.

Aviation 07z Friday through Tuesday

Outlook...

winds and seas will likely remain below SCA conditions for the

expected, but a few tstms will be across the waters Sat night
and again Sunday night. Locally higher winds and seas are
possible with any tstm.

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.
