Latest Marine Discussion:
.MARINE... After a brief surge in southerly winds earlier this evening, winds have decreased over the waters. Winds are likely to remain sub-SCA through the night, except for the lower MD bay where gusts up to 20KT are possible. Winds turn northwest Wednesday, and a few gusts around 20 knots are possible across the northern Bay and upper Tidal Potomac River. Confidence is too low for an advisory due to marginal winds progged to be in the mixing layer. Will continue to monitor. Winds will decrease Wednesday night as high pressure settles overhead, but southerly winds will increase Thursday through Thursday night as low pressure passes by to the northwest. Westerly winds Friday morning will shift to northwesterly in the wake of a cold front Friday afternoon. Winds remain out of the northwest on Saturday and will likely be SCA criteria both days. Update as of: 924 PM EST Tue Feb 7 2023
