Synopsis
A cold front will continue to drop to the southeast today while
an upper-level disturbance passes through the area. High
pressure will build toward the regon tonight through Wednesday
before settling overhead for late this week through the weekend.

Near term through tonight
A cold front is located over southern maryland early this
morning and the boundary will continue to drop to our southeast
for the rest of today. However, an anomalous upper-level trough
over the ohio valley will continue to dig south and east over
our area today. An upper-level disturbance ahead of the trough
will pass through the area, and this will bring another round of
showers across the washington and baltimore metro areas,
central and southern maryland, and central virginia. Heavier
showers and perhaps even a thunderstorm are possible across
central virginia into southern maryland where there will be a
little more instability to work with, but farther north and west
across the metro areas additional rainfall amounts will be
light. The threat for flood and flash flooding has diminished
since the heavier rainfall from this point on will be across
areas that have not received much rainfall from this event.

Therefore, the flash flood watch has been cancelled for all
locations.

Farther north and west, drier air will limit precipitation early
this morning, but popup showers are expected later this morning
and afternoon due to limited instability from the colder air
aloft associated with the upper-level trough. An isolated
thunderstorm cannot be ruled out across these areas either.

A northwest flow along with plenty of clouds will allow for
temperatures to be much cooler than previous days. Most likely
high temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s for most
locations.

The upper-level disturbance will move off to the east tonight.

In fact, weak coastal low pressure may develop as this system is
moving away from the area this evening. A few showers are
possible this evening, but most areas will dry out overnight as
the system departs. Cooler and less humid conditions are
expected tonight compared to recent nights.

Short term Wednesday through Thursday night
Surface high pressure will build toward the region Wednesday,
but the upper-level trough will remain overhead. Most areas will
turn out dry for much of the day, but an isolated shower cannot
be ruled out during the late morning through early evening
hours. Any precipitation will be light. More sunshine is
expected before a CU deck develops and this will allow for max
temps to rebound well into the 80s.

The upper-level trough will begin to lift out of the region
Wednesday night through Thursday night while surface high
pressure builds overhead. Dry and seasonable conditions are
expected during this time, and humidity will remain on the lower
side for this time of year.

Long term Friday through Monday
The long term period will be dominated by surface high pressure
as heights rise aloft. High pressure will be centered overhead
on Friday, and then will be moving into the western atlantic on
Saturday. High pressure will be wedging into the mid-atlantic
states Saturday night into Monday. These conditions will provide
a period of light winds and dry conditions over our area from
Friday and into Monday. A cold front will approach our region
Monday night into Tuesday, which could bring back precipitation
over our area.

Temperatures will remain near normal for this time of the year,
with highs in the 80s, and lows in the 60s -lower values at
higher elevations-.

Aviation 07z Tuesday through Saturday
MVFR CIGS should give way toVFR CIGS as drier air filters in
from the northwest this morning. However, showers are expected
across most of the terminals (coverage will be more scattered
farther north and west toward kmrb). Brief MVFR conditions are
possible in showers.

Showers will gradually become more isolated to scattered as
drier air filters in this afternoon, but brief MVFR conditions
cannot be completely ruled out.VFR is more likely and that is
in the forecast at this time. High pressure will build overhead
for tonight through Thursday night andVFR conditions are
expected.

Vfr conditions expected Friday into Sunday with high pressure in
control.

Marine
A cold front will drop to our south this morning. A pressure
surge will cause gusts around 20 knots during this time, so an
sca remains in effect for the bay and lower middle tidal potomac
river. Winds should weaken this afternoon as the gradient
subsides. However, weak low pressure will move offshore later
tonight and another pressure surge is expected. An SCA is in
effect for north to northwest winds over the middle bay and
lower tidal potomac late tonight into midday Wednesday.

High pressure will settle over the waters later Wednesday
through Thursday night.

Light winds sub-sca and dry conditions expected Friday into
Sunday with high pressure in control.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
