Synopsis
High pressure across the middle atlantic region today will weaken
and move offshore by the end of the weekend. Low pressure will move
across canada and cause a cold front to cross our region Monday
night. More high pressure will build in next Tuesday and remain
through the middle of next week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
No big changes to the forecast today across the area. High
pressure continues to settle to our south while a weak surface
trough develop and move into the area. A couple of short
wave vorticity impulses will move across the area, but with
limited moisture, only some high cirrus are expected.

Afternoon high temperatures should top out about 5 degrees warmer
than yesterday which will bring the area back above normal
temperature wise. Most locations will make it into the mid to
upper 70s. There will be very little change in dewpoints
compared to yesterday. Winds will be less than 10 mph from the
west.

A comfortable day ahead.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Saturday
Very little change expected in the overall pattern across the
eastern u.S. Tonight. The mid-level ridge axis shifts from the
central great lakes to the eastern great lakes. Surface high
pressure remains in place.

We will see some warm air advection. West winds will transport some
warmer air from the ohio valley across the mid-atlantic. So even
though skies will be mainly clear tonight and winds will go light
once again, temperatures will be several degrees warmer compared to
what's occurring right now at this hour.

Patchy shallow fog is possible toward daybreak.

Long term Saturday through Thursday
Sat thru Sunday night... Fair weather with some increasing clouds
Sunday night. High pressure to the south will weaken and move
offshore. A return flow of mild and somewhat more humid air will be
across the area. Highs both Sat and Sun will be above normal with
readings Sunday in the mid upper 80s. Sat night will be seasonably
chilly, but Sunday night will be mild. Some patchy fog is possible
sun morning.

Monday Monday night... The high pressure will have moved away and a
progressive h5 trough and sfc cold front will approach from the nw.

Increasing clouds for Monday with chc pops overspreading the area
from W to e. Monday will be another very warm day with highs like
that on Sunday.

Tue Wed thu... More fair weather is expected during the mid-week
period with another high pressure area building across the area.

Temperatures Tue Wed will be close to normal but then readings will
jump back above normal for Thursday.

Today... Southwest winds increasing to 10 to 15 knots. Seas at the

expected to diminish to 4 to 6 ft later today. But as a result of
seas remaining 5 feet or higher, a SCA is in place. Dominant periods
are long... About 9 to 12 seconds. But as the wind increases this
afternoon, periods will effective shorten.

Tonight... SCA conditions should continue for much of the night. West
winds should continue to gust in the 15 to maybe 20 kt range. Long
period swells emanating from humberto should begin to slowly drop
off after midnight.

seas will slowly increase Sunday afternoon.

night then fair.

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.
