Marine Forecast Discussion

Forecast: After a hot and humid day on Friday, a cold front will move through Friday night, and will stall near the region on Saturday. This front will become the focus of scattered showers and thunderstorms and mostly cloudy skies, but the entire day is not expected to be a washout. The front pushes a bit farther south on Sunday, leading to a more widely scattered storm threat, and then after a break on Monday, returns back north as a warm front on Tuesday, quickly followed by a cold front on Tuesday night. This leads to more scattered shower and thunderstorm activity during that time frame, before we return to sun by midweek.

Tropical concerns:  None

Marine:  Latest observations show seas are currently 1-2 ft with a southeasterly swell, and a dominant period of 8-10 seconds. Forecast is for a wave heights to maintain below 3 feet through Friday, then gradually increasing Friday night through the weekend and early next week as a series of frontal boundaries affect the region. With the front(s) clear of the region on Wednesday, wave heights are expected to decrease again midweek. Marine interests should watch for rapidly changing conditions most notably in the Friday night and Saturday time frame, widely scattered on Sunday, and scattered again Tuesday/Tuesday night with another warm/cold front. Any thunderstorm presence can provide rough seas, and you should consult and heed localized statements from the National Weather Service with regard to coastal marine advisories.
