SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 400 PM EDT Monday .

Slight chance to sml chance PoPs will still be around over ern/SE areas during Tue, until mid level trough/associated energy pushes offshore. Otherwise, partly to mostly sunny with highs ranging from the mid 80s to around 90.

A ridge aloft will build into and over the Mid Atlc later Tue into Thu morning. At the surface, high pressure will build north of the area ewrd to along the New England coast. This will keep us in an onshore flow through Wed. Mainly dry wx expected into Thu morning, except slight chance PoP inland/Piedmont Wed aftn. Lows Tue night ranging from the mid 60s to lower 70s. Highs on Wed will range from the mid to upper 80s near the water, to the lower 90s inland/Piedmont.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 400 PM EDT Monday .

Expansive upper ridge across the southern CONUS will persist into the medium range forecast period with continued hot and humid conditions and mainly afternoon/evening thunderstorm chances.

Thursday night will be dry for most locations with some chance for showers lingering across the north through mid to late evening. Will keep shower and storm chances aob 25% Thursday night through early Friday afternoon. Southerly flow around surface high pressure offshore will keep moisture levels and temperatures elevated through the weekend. Quite warm on Friday with highs in the low to mid 90s and dewpoints in the low to mid 70s, resulting in afternoon heat indices 100-105 degrees. Greatest thunderstorm chances will be along and west of I-95. The upper ridge breaks down somewhat over the eastern CONUS Saturday into Sunday with passing shortwave energy leading to lee troughing and 30-50% PoPs each day. Highs remain in the low to mid 90s with overnight lows in the 70s. Ensemble guidance shows the upper ridge building back into the region to start next week with continued hot and humid conditions.

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.
