Short term
Rainfall rates with thunderstorms yesterday were
quite efficient and there is no reason to think this will not be
the case today as well. Pw values are again around 2.5" today and
storm motion will be slow as well but at least somewhat pulsing.

Storm total rainfall amounts should not get out of hand but that
is not going to be the issue with any isolated areas that get the
most rainfall. It will be the rainfall rates that would cause the
issues. Some of these could drop around 3" hr with the heaviest
producers. Those thunderstorms capable of staying over any one
area for that full hour or more will see some flooding of low
lying and poor drainage areas. Basically, the totals fcast will be
for 2 to 4" with localized higher amounts possible. This should
be mainly in and adjacent to the slight risk of excessive rainfall
area that wpc has introduced. Severe wx variables are again not
impressive so rainfall should be the biggest issue outside marsh
areas. This could be much the same for Tuesday as well. But some
slightly drier air could keep precip numbers a bit lower for wed
and at least Thu but moisture will be back by Fri and hold through
the weekend.

Aviation
Widespread spotty showers and storms continue across all area
terminals early this afternoon. In any one storm, expect heavy
rainfall reducing area vis, lower cig's and gusty downdraft winds
in excess of 25 to 35 knots. Expect these conditions to persist
through early this evening before conditions improve after sunset.

Flight categories will remainVFR outside of any passing storms,
but may periodically drop to ifr lifr within any storms.VFR will
prevail tonight, with the exception of near coastal TAF sites
with some isolated storm coverage possible through the night. Klg

Marine
Outside of the threat of thunderstorms affecting the waters mainly
during the late overnight and early morning hours, a benign weather
regime will remain in place through the end of the week with the
usual evening maxima in wind speeds. Seas of 2-4 feet at most can
be expected outside of thunderstorm effects. 35

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.
