Synopsis
A cold front will slowly move southeastward across the mid-
atlantic through Tuesday morning. High pressure will build north
of the region through the remainder of the week.

Near term through tonight
Hot, humid and unstable conditions are in place this afternoon.

2-6 km agl winds are increasing to 30-40 kts, favorable for
linear segments producing damaging wind gusts, a few of which
could be significant. Frequent lightning and flash flooding
from heavy rain are also threats with any thunderstorms that
develop this afternoon and evening. Multiple rounds of showers
and thunderstorms are expected.

Precipitation will transition to periods of moderately heavy
showers with a few embedded thunderstorms overnight. Any
additional rainfall may worsen any ongoing flooding conditions
by this point.

Short term Tuesday through Wednesday night
The cold front will push southeastward on Tuesday. Showers will
likely linger into the morning for much of the region, but
clearing is expected to commence by afternoon and low-level dry
air spills into the region. High temperatures will likely
struggle to each 80 degrees, nearly 25 degrees cooler than
Sunday, due to cloud cover and expected precipitation.

Near to slightly below normal temperatures and noticeably lower
humidity are expected through the middle of the week as high
pressure builds to the north.

Long term Thursday through Monday
The long term period of the forecast will feature an extended period
of pleasant weather, with dry conditions, ample sunshine, low
humidity levels, and below to near normal temperatures for late july.

As the mid-upper level trough responsible for today's active weather
departs off to the east on Thursday, heights will rise aloft, and
surface high pressure will start to build in from the west. The area
of high pressure will move overhead Friday and Saturday, before
sliding offshore Sunday. Other than a few passing fair weather
clouds, each day should feature near wall to wall sunshine.

Temperatures will gradually moderate from below normal, to near
normal, with highs in the low to mid 80s on Thursday and highs in
the upper 80s to near 90 by Sunday. Low temperatures will start off
in the 50s and 60s on Thursday morning, and moderate to the 60s to
near 70 by Sunday morning. Humidity levels will remain relatively
low, with dewpoints starting in the upper 50s to near 60 on
Thursday, then gradually climbing into the mid 60s by Sunday.

Aviation 18z Monday through Saturday
Ifr likely in any heavier thunderstorms this afternoon and
evening, but ifr should be brief, and will subsequently be
handled with amendments once storms develop. Any thunderstorms
may be capable of producing very gusty winds and frequent
lightning. Otherwise, SW flow 10g20 kts this afternoon.

Prevailing MVFR likely overnight with periods of showers and a
few thunderstorms.VFR expected by later Tuesday morning through
Wednesday in NW flow.

Vfr conditions will persist through the long term period, as high
pressure dominates our weather.

Marine
Sca gusts likely ahead of a cold front through this evening,
with much higher gusts possible in and near thunderstorms. Sca
in NW flow again for parts of the waters behind the front
Tuesday morning, then sub-sca and dry through mid to late week.

A prolonged stretch of precipitation free conditions and sub-sca
level winds is expected through the middle to latter portions of the
upcoming week.

Hydrology
High pwats of 2-2.25 inches are expected this afternoon into
tonight ahead of a slowly approaching cold front. Steering flow
will be parallel to the boundary, and with mid-level height
falls moving overtop of persistent and excessively humid low-
levels, re-generative thunderstorms capable of very heavy rain
seem likely. The exact placement is still somewhat uncertain,
but it seems most likely that these factors will all come
together across northern central md, the eastern WV panhandle
and portions of northern virginia into the shenandoah valley and
potomac highlands where synoptic lift from the surface
front trough approaching from the north will overlay higher
instability airmass to the south.

Areal average rainfall of 1-1.5 inches is expected for much of
the mid-atlantic, but isolated totals in excess of 3 or 4
inches (maybe more) are possible. Due to the convective nature
of this system, much of this rain may fall in a short amount of
time, resulting in the risk for flash flooding.

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.
