Marine Forecast Discussion

Forecast: The period begins with high pressure eroding, as a warm front presses in from the southwest. This warm front will bring showers to the region mainly Friday afternoon through the overnight, and indications from the latest 3km NAM (12z Thursday) that the precipitation moves out Saturday morning. Global models keep the showers/storms threat into Saturday afternoon. A cold front cross the area on Sunday, and prior to the frontal passage, we expect very warm temperatures. For now we have partly cloudy skies listed, but a stray storm cannot be ruled out. Dry and seasonable weather is expected as high pressure moves back into the region Monday and Tuesday, before moving offshore and SE of the region on Wednesday.

Tropical concerns:  None

Marine:  Latest observations show seas are currently 1-2 ft with a southeasterly swell, and a dominant period of 4-6 seconds. Forecast is for a wave heights to increase on Friday to 3-5 feet, and maintain those levels through the weekend with several fronts and low pressure in the vicinity. Monday through the middle of next week we will see a gradual decline in wave heights as high pressure moves over top of the region. Marine interests should watch for rapidly changing conditions most notably on Saturday with thunderstorms expected. 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.
