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

Near term until 6 am Wednesday morning
Areas of rain are ongoing across the area in association with a
broad swath of warm advection aloft. With the thick cloud deck
in place and rain falling, conditions are stable at the surface.

As a result, we aren't anticipating any surface based storms. A
couple of rumbles of thunder can't be ruled out as some meager
instability is present aloft. With the stable layer present near
the surface, mixing down of higher winds from aloft will be
inhibited. If a stronger convective element were to form, a
brief stronger wind gust can't be ruled out, but that isn't
anticipated at this time. The rain should predominantly be light
to moderate in nature, but intermittent heavier downpours will
remain possible.

The surface cold front will progress through the area late this
afternoon through the evening, bringing an end to the rain.

Winds will shift around to west-northwesterly in the wake of the
front, and clouds will gradually clear out as well. Low
temperatures tonight will bottom out in the 40s to near 50.

Short term 6 am Wednesday morning through Thursday night
High pressure will gradually build in from the southwest during
the day Wednesday, before shifting offshore on Thursday. This
will lead to dry conditions, with mostly sunny skies and
seasonable temperatures. Winds will be out of the west on
Wednesday, then shift around to light out of the south on
Thursday as high pressure moves offshore. Patchy frost may be
possible Wednesday night in the typically cooler spots as winds
go calm with high pressure centered overhead.

Long term Friday through Tuesday
Model guidance remains split as far as what happens across the
area next weekend. At this point, Friday looks to remain dry and
seasonable, no matter what model guidance you look at. This due
to high pressure building into the region. By Friday night, a
shortwave sliding by to the north will bring a slight chance for
precipitation. Low temperatures Friday night will be in the mid
40s.

Keeping slight chance pops in the forecast on Saturday, but
think we could very well stay completely dry. The only set of
guidance that brings rain in on Saturday is the GFS and its
ensembles (gefs). The ecmwf, eps ensembles, and the cmc all
develop a cutoff low over the southwest u.S. That slowly makes
its way towards the east through the weekend. Whereas the
gfs GEFS keeps an open trough that moves east more quickly, thus
bringing rain in for Saturday. Going with the ECMWF cmc pair at
this point, as it has been fairly consistent, and the 12z gfs
seems to be starting a slower trend finally. So, thinking
Saturday and Saturday night should remain dry, but keeping
slight chance pops in for the time being. To that same point,
will likely be doing the same for the first half of Sunday, as
the ECMWF cmc don't bring rain until late Sunday or even early
Monday, as a surface low develops and moves across the great
lakes. Given the lesser chance for precip Saturday Sunday, will
likely be a little warmer than previously forecast. Thinking
highs closer to the mid 60s.

The cold front associated with the aforementioned surface low
will push through on Monday as high pressure pushes offshore. As
a result, high temperatures in the mid to upper 60s to near 70
seem reasonable ahead of the front, assuming it doesn't pass
early in the day. The front will hang up across the region later
in the day, with showers expected to continue.

Aviation 19z Tuesday through Sunday
Cigs are currently ifr or very low-end MVFR at all of the
terminals. CIGS are expected to bounce between ifr and low-end
MVFR until a cold front passes through the area this evening.

Showers, with some embedded heavier bursts of rain will be
possible in advance of this front through the remainder of the
afternoon. The front will progress through the terminals from
west to east between approximately 22z and 01z. As the front
moves through, conditions will clear out, with ceilings rising,
rain coming to an end, and winds shifting around from SE to nw.

Vfr conditions are expected in the wake of the front tonight
through Thursday, with westerly flow eventually switching around
to light southerly flow on Thursday.

Likely to seeVFR conditions Friday and Saturday, with high
pressure building overhead.

Marine
Sporadic SCA gusts will be possible in south-southeasterly flow
over the next couple hours. Winds are expected to relax briefly
late this afternoon into early evening, before picking back up
again out of the northwest in the wake of the front. Winds will
gradually relax through the afternoon tomorrow, but some sca
gusts may still be possible over the bay in westerly flow. Winds
are expected to be remain light on Thursday with high pressure
moving overhead.

With high pressure building overhead Friday into Saturday, winds
will remain below SCA criteria. As high pressure begins to
shift offshore on Saturday, could see winds pick up out of the
south, but not expected to reach SCA criteria at this time.

Tides coastal flooding
Anomalies have been relatively stable but are now high enough to
warrant warnings for the sensitive points (annapolis straits)
and advisories all other zones. They should decline tomorrow as
winds turn northwesterly, but as the flow behind the system
isn't all that strong, they may not go down a whole lot, so will
need to monitor the drop closely.

Additional issues may crop up this weekend depending on the
development of another low pressure system approaching from the
southwest.

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.
