Synopsis
An upper level disturbance will cross the region this afternoon
and evening. A cold front will approach the ohio valley
Wednesday, sinking into our area Wednesday night into Thursday,
possibly stalling into Friday. Behind the front, high pressure
will build over the region for the weekend.

Near term through tonight
An upper level trough is crossing the appalachians this morning
and will move through the region during the mid to late
afternoon hours, followed by a second weaker shortwave this
evening. At the surface, a weak pressure trough is present in
the lee of the mountains this morning and this will gradually
push eastward through the day and be east of the region by
tonight. More cloud cover is present this morning but breaks of
sunshine are expected and this will allow temperatures to rise
into the upper 80s to low 90s. Instability will not be as
impressive as what we saw on Tuesday, given the additional
cloud cover and slightly cooler temperatures, and the synoptic
lift will be coming through piecemeal and focused further north.

That being said, 1000-2000 j kg of SBCAPE should develop by
this afternoon, along with modest low level lapse rates and
0-6km shear around 20-25 knots. These ingredients will support
at least an isolated threat for severe thunderstorms today, with
damaging winds and large hail continuing to be the primary
threats. Initial development is likely to occur in the surface
trough near or just east of the appalachians in the mid
afternoon as the primary upper trough moves through. These
showers thunderstorms should then progress eastward across the
metros during the remainder of the afternoon hours and into the
evening. A second round of activity is possible, but is less
certain during the mid to late evening as the second weaker
shortwave moves across.

Shower and thunderstorm activity will then dwindle heading into
the overnight, with partly cloudy skies and mainly dry
conditions persisting overnight. Patchy fog will be possible
towards morning as temperatures bottom out in the middle 60s to
middle 70s.

Short term Thursday through Friday night
The cold front will slowly drift into our area Thursday
morning, helping spark scattered showers and thunderstorms
during the afternoon and evening hours once again. Given the
front will be gracing us with its presence, while coinciding
with shortwave energy tracking overhead, do expect better
coverage of showers storms compared to today. Again, instability
may be limited given cloud cover and lower temperatures,
however we will remain moist and the flow will be parallel to
the front. So in addition to isolated strong to severe storms,
heavy rain resulting in isolated incidents of flooding will be a
concern.

The front shifts southward Thursday night into Friday, but
likely lingers close enough nearby to bring additional
scattered showers and storms on Friday afternoon and evening,
favoring our southern zones. Temperatures noticeably cooler on
Friday, likely holding in the 80s area wide. A drying trend
should commence Friday night as the front sinks further south
into southern virginia.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday
High pressure will build into the region from the north Saturday
and Sunday. Temperatures will be about 5 to 7 degrees below
average. Dry conditions and lower humidity is expected through the
period.

The high will move to the northeast Monday and Tuesday. This will
allow for a return southeast to southerly flow to bring the
humidity levels up and a chance of showers or a thunderstorms. The
discrepancy remains between the european models and GFS models as to
how many and how far north will showers and thunderstorms develop.

The european model keeps most, if not all, of our CWA dry through
Tuesday. The GFS model brings an upper level disturbance across our
region late Monday into Tuesday; thus, the chance for showers and
thunderstorms could be higher and farther north. Temperatures will
remain a few degrees below average, but humidity levels will rise
some.

Aviation 14z Wednesday through Sunday
Afternoon evening showers and storms can be expected through
Friday as a cold front slowly transits the area, bringing
periods of subVFR conditions. Patchy fog could also yield
MVFR ifr vis, mostly likely at mrb cho.

Vfr conditions for all terminals Saturday and Sunday. We can't
rule out a shower or thunderstorm near cho late Sunday into
Sunday night, which could briefly reduce conditions to MVFR.

Winds northeast around 5 knots Saturday and Saturday night. Winds
becoming easterly 5 to 10 knots Sunday.

Marine
Sca conditions expected over the waters today as the gradient
increases and a cold front nears the ohio valley. The gradient
is expected to relax overnight and remain below SCA criteria
Thursday and Friday. The front will drift over the waters on
Thursday, lingering nearby into Friday. As such, afternoon and
evening showers storms can be expected, some of which will
deliver strong gusty winds.

No marine hazards expected Saturday and Sunday. Winds northeast
around 5 knots Saturday and Saturday night. Winds becoming easterly
around 10 knots Sunday into Sunday evening.

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.
