As of 315 pm edt Friday...

high pressure centered across the region is leading to light and
variable winds across the waters this afternoon. Seas remain
elevated, generally 5 to 6 feet across the N and up to 7 feet across
the s. Waves in the bay are generally in the 1 to 2 foot range,
besides the mouth of the bay where waves are still around 3 feet.

Light and variable winds this afternoon become SW around 10 knots
later this evening and tonight as the center of high pressure drifts
further south and east. Seas will slowly diminish through tonight,
but will remain in excess of 5 feet across the coastal waters. As a
result, scas are now in effect for the coastal waters into Saturday
afternoon.

The area of high pressure moves offshore this weekend allowing for s
to SW winds generally around 10 knots Saturday into Sunday. Seas
finally diminish below SCA criteria by Saturday evening across the
coastal zones. Winds increase slightly Sunday evening into Monday (s
to SW 15 knots) before a weak cold front crosses the region late
Monday into Tuesday. The current forecast has winds seas remaining
just under SCA criteria Sunday evening night, with sub-sca
conditions expected with the fropa.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
