819 am edt Mon mar 27 2017
More rain is expected tonight and Tuesday as another area of
low pressure crosses the region. Dry weather and seasonal
temperatures are expected by mid week.
Near term /through tonight/
The only tweak made with the 815am update was to timing of pops
across eastern counties. Only showers remaining in the area are
across the wv/md ridges, so trimmed pops across pennsylvania and
kept showers lingering elsewhere another hour or two. Previous
Residual showers will end this morning with passage of a mid
level trough axis extending from the parent low now filling
north of the great lakes. Used radar trends and consensus short
pops to construct this portion of the forecast. Passage of this
system occluded front will not alleviate the warm temperatures
over the region. Expect highs today about 15 to 20 degrees above
the seasonal averages while shortwave ridging maintains dry
weather through the afternoon.
Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday/
By Monday evening, showers with the next low pressure system
are projected out of the west, and can be expected to persist
into Tuesday before building high pressure in the wake of that
systems cold front invokes suppression from the northwest later
in the day. Cooler and drier air may thus be anticipated for|
Tuesday night and Wednesday.
Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/
Another emerging plains closed low is forecast to spread rain across
much of the eastern CONUS during the latter half of the week. Expect
a brief period of dry weather behind that system next weekend before
redeterioration for the start of the work-week. Seasonal temperatures
are expected for the period.
Aviation /12z Monday through Friday/
Upper level low pressure will complete passage over the region
early this morning with diminishing rain and improvement in
conditions in the wake. Condition redeterioration can again be
expected tonight with restrictions through Tuesday as another
low spreads rain over the area.
restrictions are likely again by late week as another broad low
affects the upper ohio valley.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
