What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
A wavy front over the area will settle just south of the state
tonight. After a dry and pleasant Thursday, rounds of showers
and thunderstorms will return Friday into the weekend as warm
air moves back up into the area.

Near term until 7 am Thursday morning
Rain has tapered off for the moment over the laurels, but
additional storms over pit are headed right for them. Will
continue to run the ffa and hold the flw and fls until after
midnight. Central somerset county has had 3-5 inches of rain
with lots of flooding reports. The flooding is not as noticeable
over southern somerset county for the time being, but with the
additional tsra incoming very shortly, that may change. Cams
keep some precip over these locations until 10z.

Scattered showers continue over the rest of the area even up
into the far north. Must allow for these for the next few hours.

Clouds and high dewpoints will keep temps up quite a bit through
the night. Dewpoints may lower slightly in the north and skies
will show some breaks in the clouds as wind becomes slightly
northerly. Temp forecast toughest there, where the amount of
both clearing and drying is in question. Will hold onto current
numbers for the time being. If a trend is evident there later,
adjustments may be necessary.

Short term 7 am Thursday morning through 6 pm Thursday
Wavy frontal boundary should sink far enough south to bring
fair and pleasant conditions on Thursday. The morning will be
cloudy with areas of fog central and south, but a nice afternoon
is on tap with lower humidity and increasing sunshine. Highs
will range from the low to mid 40s north to the lower 80s south.

Long term Thursday night through Wednesday
Frontal system returns Friday with increase in shower and
thunderstorm activity. This will lead to a trough over the area
for the weekend and pops in the forecast. Heights rise early
next week and a much more summerlike weather pattern is expected
by the middle of next week and later.

Aviation 04z Thursday through Monday
Weak wave sliding along a warm front stretched along the
mason dixon line keeping showers ongoing into the early morning
hours, though not as heavy as earlier. Showers exit the se
counties by dawn. Biggest impacts overnight will be at jst aoo
where much of the night will bring ifr conditions. MVFR
conditions will encompass the remainder of the area south of
i-80.

Improvement early on Thursday as drier northerly flow works in
eroding the clouds from the north. Restrictions linger the
longest over the SW terminals, potentially lingering through
midday.

Restrictions again become possible over the SW Thu night.

across the SE half of pa.

GOES Local Image of Mid-Atlantic    EDIT
NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
