Synopsis for the tidal potomac and md portion of the chesapeake bay.. Low pressure will loop over the northwestern atlantic ocean through Friday. High pressure will gradually build in from the midwest through the weekend. A cold front will follow Sunday night, then stall nearby before returning north as a warm front early next week.

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will loop offshore of the eastern US coast through Friday. High pressure will gradually build in from the Midwest over the weekend. A cold front will push through Sunday night, then stall nearby before returning north as a warm front next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. A large and deep area of low pressure will continue to loop westward toward Cape Cod tonight, while high pressure extends from Ontario to the Tennessee Valley. The gradient between these systems is producing some wind gusts in the 30-40 mph range this afternoon. While the winds will subside a little with sunset, a low level jet will strengthen, which will likely keep winds elevated through the night except perhaps in the most sheltered locations. It's possible some of the ridgetops could be near wind advisory criteria (greater than 46 mph), but didn't feel confident on coverage for any sort of advisory at this time. Skies should remain mostly clear through the night, but the winds will help keep temperatures well above the dew points, so only expecting lows in the mid 30s to mid 40s. Wind chills will be near or below the freezing mark though.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/. As the low continues its loop southward on Friday, the pressure gradient will remain tight. Gusty winds of at least 20-30 mph are likely through the day. Moisture associated with the low will also begin advecting back toward the area, so expect clouds to increase from northeast to southwest through Friday night (although the far southwestern CWA may remain clear). A few light showers may also approach north central Maryland Friday and Friday night, though most guidance indicates they will be dissipating as they encounter a drier low level airmass. Temperatures should remain fairly steady state with highs in the 50s/60s and lows in the 30s/40s.

The low will finally begin to move back out to sea later Friday night into Saturday as upper level blocking breaks down. This will finally allow high pressure to move in from the west and winds to relax. However, some clouds could hang around until Saturday afternoon as linger moisture remains under a subsidence inversion. Clouds will then increase again Saturday night as a weak frontal system approaches from the west. As heights build aloft, temperatures will be a little warmer, with most places in the 60s for highs.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Sunday should be mostly dry, with a surface ridge axis overhead for much of the day. However, a weakening cold front will push through the region later Sunday into Sunday evening. This front is likely to be mostly dry, but can't rule out a shower as it pushes through, so will maintain the slight chance POPs for that for western zones, with little to no POPs east of the Blue Ridge. Highs Sunday will be in the upper 60s to near 70.

By Monday, High pressure will be split to the north and south, with the weak frontal boundary placed somewhere in, or south, of the forecast area. Could see some showers along that boundary Monday afternoon. Not expecting much of a thermal boundary there, but likely more a wind shift. Temperatures expected to be in the mid 70s.

Tuesday and Wednesday are a bit tricky to make any exact time estimates on any rainfall that may occur. The region will be in northwesterly flow aloft, with several weak upper-level disturbances moving over/near the forecast area. So, generally throwing in chance POPs into the forecast for both days with highs in the mid 70s.

AVIATION /19Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. The main story through Friday will be gusty northwest winds. Some gusts in excess of 30 kt are occurring this afternoon. Winds will only relax slightly tonight, then gusts of 20-30 kt will be likely again Friday. Only a few cumulus clouds through tonight, but a stratocumulus deck may advect in from the northeast Friday afternoon into Saturday morning. These clouds will likely be VFR, though there is a low chance of MVFR. High pressure will bring lighter winds by Friday night, as well as maintain VFR conditions into Saturday night.

A weakening cold front will push through Sunday afternoon, with a slight chance for showers west of the Blue Ridge, so MRB could perhaps see a shower with this, but the front should primarily be dry. Then on Monday afternoon/evening, more showers possible across central VA as this weak front gets hung up. However, rain chances remain low, and any CIG/VISBY restrictions would be minimal. So, generally VFR conditions expected Sunday and Monday.

MARINE. Northwesterly winds will remain gusty through Friday. Gusts of 25 to 30 knots are possible at times, particularly during the afternoon hours for near shore waters and overnight for the wider waters. Have issued a Marine Weather Statement since a few gusts have been near gale force this afternoon. That may be the case late tonight as well over the open waters of the middle Bay, but for now have limited to 30 kt. An SCA is now in effect for all waters through 6 PM Friday (though some interior waterways could have lulls tonight). The SCA may need to be extended into Friday night for portions of the waters. After that time, high pressure will bring lighter winds for the weekend.

No marine hazards are expected on Sunday or Monday.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Water levels continue to decrease under northwest winds and will be near or below astronomical normals by tonight-Friday. Tides may increase rather sharply by Saturday as onshore flow returns. The amount of increase will depend on if there is any excess anomaly left at the mouth of the Bay. Have sided with the less aggressive ESTOFS at this time, though fairly widespread minor flooding is within the realm of possibility this weekend, and moderate flooding at sensitive sites would be the worst-case scenario.

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.
