Synopsis
A cold front will remain stalled well to our south through the
weekend. High pressure will become centered over new england
Sunday night through Tuesday as low pressure is slow to lift
northeast well off the carolina coast.

Near term through Sunday
As of 355 pm edt Saturday...

latest analysis indicating yesterday's sfc cold front well off
to our s, with ~1028mb sfc high pressure centered over the
northern great lakes. Aloft, a trough is situated over eastern
ny pa and is progged by the models to slowly sag SE through the
evening. Ample low mid level moisture is in place over the
southern portion of the local area with radar depicting an area
of light showers over far southern va and NE nc, slowly
advancing eastward. Temperatures are significantly cooler than
the past several days and range from around 70f in south
central va to the mid upper 70s across the remainder of the
area.

Shortwave aloft rotates SE through the region tonight, but deep
layered moisture becomes confined to far SE sections so will
focus chance to low-end likely pops there (at least through
06z), with mainly dry conditions and clearing skies elsewhere.

Lows range from the mid to upper 50s NW to around 70f se.

By Sunday morning, the surface high looks like it will push the
moisture far enough south to limit the chances for any showers
to mainly NE nc and far SE va with drying of the mid and upper
level expected to continue through the day on Sunday suppressing
the pcpn farther south through the day. However, the low level
moisture should remain in place with strong easterly flow
through about 850 mb. That may be enough to hold clouds in place
and bring a few isolated showers to mainly areas along E of
i-95. Have a 20% pop in these areas by aftn. Highs will avg in
the upper 70s to around 80f under partly to mostly sunny skies
n, with partly to mostly cloudy skies s.

Short term Sunday night through Tuesday
As of 355 pm edt Saturday...

the forecast for Sunday night through Tue will be largely
dependent on the development evolution of a potential tropical
low pressure system moving slowly NE (but remaining offshore of)
the SE us coast. Given that this is likely to be tropical, will
be disregarding the NAM as it generally struggles greatly with
anything tropical. Following a gfs ECMWF wpc blend (with fairly
decent agreement) centers the sfc low NE off the ga north fl
coast Sun night, and lifts it slowly NE well off the carolina
coast mon-tue. High pressure generally remains in place over new
england and atlantic canada through the period. This keep a
persistent E to NE low level onshore flow into the local area.

Deeper moisture looks to stay offshore, but will see a gradual
increase in dew pts and precipitable water values through the
period. Have maintained mostly 20-30% pops for both Mon tue,
primarily due to the moisture overrunning the wedging high
rather than the sfc low itself (as it will be well offshore).

Again will need to monitor the potential tropical
development evolution early next week as a shift closer to the
coast would increase impacts (mainly from higher pops heavier
rain potential). Highs will be mainly in the upper 70s lower 80s
mon, and 80-85f tue, with lows in the 60s Sun night Mon am and
mid 60s to lower 70s Mon night Tue am. Skies will be partly to
mostly cloudy.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
As of 355 pm edt Saturday...

the early part of the extended forecast will depend much upon any
development and potential track of the tropical disturbance
currently off the fl coast. Latest NHC outlook keeps this system
will stay well off the local coast. Despite that, given the
proximity to the tropical system and the potential for some tropical
type showers to move across the area with a persistent ne-ene flow,
and some reinforcing moisture lift from weak upper disturbances
moving across the mid atlc and NE states in the w-sw flow aloft,
will maintain low chance pops Mon night through thu.

An upper-level trough will move into the great lakes for the end of
next week and the weekend. A cold front will approach the area from
the west. Ahead of the front, conditions should remain mostly dry
with temperature approaching 90 inland and mid 80s along the coast
for the first half of the holiday weekend.

Aviation 20z Saturday through Thursday
As of 200 pm edt Saturday...

scattered light rain showers will continue across far southern
va and NE nc into this evening. Still primarilyVFR conditions
(though some MVFR CIGS may affect kecg this evening tonight). N
to NE winds will range around 10 to 15 knots with gusts up to
20kt along the immediate coast and avg 5-10 kt farther inland.

Partly to mostly sunny N and partly-mostly cloudy S for Sunday
butVFR conditions are expected throughout. NE winds will again
be somewhat elevated gusty along the coast at 10-15kt with gusts
to 20 kt (with ~10kt inland).

Outlook: low pressure developing along a stalled front and
high pressure centered to our N NE will keep an easterly flow
across the region mon-tue, allowing for ample moisture, a chance
for showers, and the potential for sub-VFR ceilings from time
to time (especially at eastern TAF locations) mon-tue.

Marine
As of 415 pm edt Saturday...

late this aftn, sfc high pressure was centered over the ern
great lakes, with a frontal boundary now well to the south.

Ne winds were mainly 10-20 kt over the waters, with waves 1-3 ft
and seas 3-5 ft. The high will build eastward to over NRN new
england tonight thru mon, as weak low pressure will lift NE off
the SE coast. This will result in persistent NE winds of 10-20
kt with gusts to 25 kt possible thru the period. Waves will
build to 3-4 ft in the ches bay, and seas will build to 5-8 ft
over the ocean. So, at this time, have sca's for all the waters
except zns 635 636 637 thru the short term period.

Sca conditions for seas will likely linger into Wed morning, as
the flow remains onshore due to low pressure out over the
ocean.

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.
