Synopsis
A cold front will cross the region through this evening. High
pressure will build from the mid-south across the mid-atlantic
then off the new england coast Wednesday through Thursday night.

A cold front may approach from the ohio valley Friday, then an
area of low pressure may approach from the tennessee valley
over the weekend.

Near term through tonight
A cold front will cross the area from west to east today. Plenty
of moisture to work with in addition to a strong low-level jet,
so a band of widespread moderate to at times heavy showers are
anticipated areawide.

Rainfall amounts should average around a half an inch, with
locally higher amounts possible. Soundings don't indicate much
in the way of instability, so left thunder out of the forecast
for now. There's a chance of a stronger wind gust or two
particularly over southern maryland where there's a little less
of a near-surface stable layer.

Temperatures will be held in the 60s today with the clouds and
showers around, then fall into the 40s tonight with clearing and
drying expected.

Short term Wednesday through Thursday night
High pressure building over the mid-south will push
northeastward over the mid-atlantic Wednesday into Thursday. Dry
weather and seasonable temperatures are expected during this
time, with very little in the way of cloud cover.

Wednesday night looks to be the coldest night as the high moves
overhead, with patchy frost possible in the typically cooler
locations early Thursday morning.

Long term Friday through Monday
Locally, Friday will likely remain dry and seasonable as high
pressure remains nearby and a weak boundary may cross. However,
model guidance differences are already in place -- namely
whether there will be a closed low over the desert southwest
(e.G., ECMWF cmc) or an open trough (gfs). The open trough would
result in a more progressive solution, with a storm system
arriving to the east coast and bringing rain over the weekend
(but perhaps not both days). If the closed low develops, it will
promote downstream ridging and dry weather through Saturday.

With the more amplified pattern, the storm system would likely
lift to our west, with low rain chances for Sunday and greater
risk for showers early next week as the trailing frontal zone
lingers over the area. Due to the uncertainty in storm track,
there isn't a great deal of confidence in temperatures either,
though they shouldn't venture into the extreme in either
direction.

Aviation 08z Tuesday through Saturday
Ifr CIGS likely for a time this morning, before lifting briefly
to MVFR. Ifr vsby possible in showers this afternoon 18-22z,
with intermittent lower CIGS to ifr possible as well. Conditions
clear this evening after 22-00z. SE flow today could gust a bit
to 15-20 kts, then gust again this evening immediately behind a
cold front out of the nw.

Vfr expected Wednesday into Thursday with W to SW flow.

Vfr conditions are likely Friday, but confidence decreases over
the weekend as a storm system approaches from the west.

Marine
Sca gusts likely for a time ahead of a frontal system today,
with a lull late this afternoon into early evening before
another period of gusts out of the NW behind the cold front.

Winds linger into Wednesday before gradually subsiding late in
the day, with light winds under high pressure then expected
through Thursday.

Sca conditions are unlikely Friday and Saturday with high pressure
nearby.

Tides coastal flooding
Anomalies are close to a foot and a half... Leveling off in the
northern bay but still rising to the south. These elevated water
levels will persist into tonight. Have issued advisories for the
next cycle (or two) where confidence is in place. Have left the
watch in effect for annapolis since the forecast is near threshold.

Have also issued a watch for st. Marys: even though the current
forecast falls just short, the stevens ensemble for lewisetta
suggests moderate flooding is possible on the potomac.

A cold front will move through the area late tonight, which will
yield decreasing anomalies as winds turn out of the west northwest
by Wednesday morning. However, additional advisories will likely be
needed as the overnight high tide will be higher astronomically and
water will be slow to exit.

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.
