Synopsis
A weak surface boundary will linger over the area through the
middle of the week. Southerly flow will continue to usher in hot
and humid conditions into the region during this time. A cold
front will sweep through the area during the second half of the
week, with canadian high pressure building in for the weekend.

Near term through tonight
Continued hot and humid conditions this afternoon with high
temperatures in the middle 90s and heat indices between 100-104.

As for convection, the nssl-wrf arw has been doing an excellent
job the past few days depicting the mode and where convection
has occurred. For today, it shows convection developing east of
the blue ridge mtns south of i-66 and tracking east toward the
potomac river and southern md. The 12z iad sounding showed
decent 0-6km shear of 32kt with a speed MAX of 35kt at 500 mb
which is double the amount of shear there was yesterday. Cape
should be plentiful with middle 90s and 70f dewpoints. Expect
a few more severe storms today than the past couple of days.

Aviation 14z Monday through Friday
Episodes of subVFR conditions possible each afternoon and
evening through Wednesday in passing showers and thunderstorms,
some of which could be strong to severe. Patchy fog will also
yield reduced vsby's (MVFR ifr) during the early morning hours,
especially near the terminals that receive rainfall the day
prior. Outside of convection, winds will be light and south
southwesterly through Wednesday.

Thursday will feature a higher risk of thunderstorms compared to
Friday thanks to a passing cold front, but the risk will
continue Friday if the front stalls.

Marine
Sub SCA conditions expected through the first half of Wednesday
as light southerly flow prevails. Thereafter, southerly flow
increases as a cold front approaches from the northwest, with
sca gusts possible late Wednesday afternoon and overnight.

Showers and thunderstorms will also be possible each afternoon
and evening, bringing the potential for strong gusty winds and
hail. Highest coverage of storms over the waters will be on
Tuesday and again on Wednesday.

Sca may continue Thursday as front approaches, but may abate
Friday, especially if the front stalls.

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.
