Synopsis
High pressure will build over the region today and remain in
control of our weather through early next week. This will result
in dry weather with cool nights and mild days.

Near term through today
Very localized patchy ground fog in the typically prone spots will
quickly burn off after sunrise. Otherwise, large high pressure
building over the great lakes will result in a beautiful day.

Plenty of sunshine and a relatively dry airmass in place will
allow afternoon high temperatures to recover into the upper 70s
to lower 80s. Wind gusts will generally be less than 15 mph with
very comfortable humidity levels.

Short term tonight through 6 pm Friday
Tonight and Friday...

a shortwave trough cold front will cross the region late
tonight into Friday morning. Given the fact the the shortwave
is moisture starved, opted to go with a dry forecast. Low risk
for a brief spot shower or two on Friday, but felt the potential
was too low to include in the forecast.

Light wind and the dry airmass in place should allow for another
cool night. Low temps tonight should fall into the 50s in most
locales despite some mid level cloudiness possible. May also
see some very localized patchy ground fog in the typical spots
late, but nothing widespread. 850t drop to between +7 and +8c on
Friday, so expect highs to only reach the mid to upper 70s
despite at least partly sunny skies. Low relative humidity for
august standards will once again make for a comfortable
afternoon.

Long term Friday night through Wednesday
* highlights...

- mostly dry with temperatures slightly below-average
- monitoring the evolution of tropical energy around fl
* discussion...

forecast models struggle into midweek with a lot of moving parts. In
one region, the continuance of pacific-origin impulses round an area
of low pressure over the gulf of alaska nets a progressive evolution
of downstream ridging via influx of milder pacific air, maintaining
somewhat of a monsoonal high over the SW CONUS while shearing energy
s behind which cooler, drier air follow over the great lakes region
into the NE conus. Yet, another region, during a transitional period
of the progressive evolution noted above, remnant energy over the n-
central CONUS becomes cut-off, wobbling S with the mean wind round
the aforementioned monsoonal high. Neighboring up against harvey and
tropical energy round florida, synoptics become complicated towards
midweek as to whether we see s-stream energy pulled N over our area.

Low confidence forecast beginning 12z Monday. Earlier forecasts had
a broad picture of persisting subsidence and surface high pressure
keeping the moist-tropical axis S E of our region. Now it appears
that forecast models struggle with the morphology of the cut-
off low with the tropical energy off of florida, keeping harvey
over S tx within weak steering flow, out of the picture for the
time-being. A lot of spread within the ensemble members while
the 24.0z canadian looks like an outlier for the time being.

A cool, dry forecast out through Monday at the very least. Low dew-
points making for comfortable conditions along with temperatures
ranging around the 70s, slightly below-average for late august. A
mostly dry forecast with a low risk of a spot shower given steep
lapse rates per cold pool aloft coupled with ascent as mid-level
energy rotates round the broader cyclonic flow. Best chance Saturday
mainly N W of our region up against high terrain. NW winds becoming
ne. The remainder of the forecast is a consensus blend, mainly a
compromise between the operational 24.0z GFS and ec. This keeps
tropical energy S E of our region with main influences of wind and
swell, a dry forecast through next Friday given a wedge of high
pressure keeping tropical activity at bay. Again, low confidence.

Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Friday ... High confidence.

Today through Friday... Winds and seas will remain below small
craft advisory thresholds through Friday. A secondary cold front
will probably bring a period of northerly wind gusts of 15 to
20 knots late tonight into Friday morning, but not expecting
them to reach small craft levels.

Outlook Friday night through Monday ... Moderate confidence.

High pressure wanes over the period as a tropical low develops off
the SE coasts lifting ne, sweeping offshore of new england. Will see
nw winds shift NE and increase with gusts up to 20 kts into Tuesday
as seas potentially building 5 to 7 feet on the S SE waters.

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.
