Synopsis
High pressure will remain over the region through the weekend
with mostly dry conditions and above normal temperatures
expected. The high will shift off the southeast coast by Monday
as a cold front approaches from the ohio valley. In the wake of
the frontal passage, high pressure will situate itself over the
region once again through the middle of next week.

Near term through Saturday
Tranquil conditions through tonight as high pressure centers
itself over the mid-atlantic. This will lead to clear skies,
light winds, and dry conditions across the cwa. There is a small
cluster of showers and thunderstorms over central ohio this
evening, and some leftover clouds or sprinkles may reach the
allegheny highlands around daybreak. Otherwise, southerly winds
will allow for a warming trend heading into the weekend, with
highs this afternoon topping out in the upper 70s to low 80s,
falling back into the 50s tonight under prime radiational
cooling conditions.

Short term Saturday night through Sunday night
The aforementioned high will drift a little further to our
south and east through the weekend, allowing for further
warming under a southerly breeze. High temperatures will extend
into low to middle 80s on Saturday, topping out in the middle
to upper 80s Sunday with plentiful sunshine.

Precipitation wise, a slight chance of showers and a
thunderstorm will be possible Saturday afternoon west of the
blue ridge as a weak upper level disturbance tracks across
pennsylvania. GFS is a bit more bullish on QPF coverage, while
the nam ECMWF favoring the drier end of the spectrum. As such,
feel a slight chance covers this well for now. Given warming
temperatures and slightly lower heights, there will be some weak
instability available across the mountains, with MUCAPE values
ranging between 500-1000 j kg. Thus have inserted the mention of
thunder to the gridded database. Any showers or thunderstorm
will quickly dissipate early Saturday evening as the Sun sets.

Thereafter, dry conditions return areawide for the balance of
the weekend.

Long term Monday through Friday
A positively tilted trof over the WRN great lks Monday is
forecast to deepen and become a closed low as it crosses the ern
great lks, southern ontario, and the st. Lawrence river valley
Tuesday. This help push a cold front through the area late
Monday. Showers appear likely along the front Monday afternoon
mainly over the appalachians and areas west of route 15 with
model guidance showing little or no accumulation east of route
15. Cooler temperatures are expected for the middle of next week
under the influence of the upper level trof. Heights begin to
rise sharply on Wed with strong ridge axis settling over the
area by next weekend with 500 mb heights progged higher than
with the ridge currently over the area. This will lead to a
significant warming trend with temperatures AOA 90f for the
second half of next week with record high temperatures possible
for late sep and continued dry weather.

Aviation 00z Saturday through Wednesday
Vfr conditions expected through the weekend as high pressure
centers itself south of the terminals and light southerly
breezes prevail. Can't rule out a passing shower or thunderstorm
at mrb Saturday afternoon, but chances are too low to include
in the TAF at this time.

Cdfnt will cross the area late Monday with shifting winds and
gusty winds.

Marine
With high pressure centered south of the waters through Sunday,
sub-sca conditions are expected to prevail. The high will drift
further off the southeast coast Sunday night as a cold front
nears the ohio valley. This will allow for the gradient to
tighten and southerly winds to increase. This may result in sca
gusts returning to the waters Sunday night into Monday morning.

Possible SCA conditions Monday into Tuesday morning in ssw flow
ahead of a front and in NW flow behind frontal passage.

Tides coastal flooding
Anomalies continue to fall across the waters, keeping coastal
flooding concerns mainly below minor flood thresholds. Water
levels will remain elevated the next few days, with near minor
flooding possible.

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.
