Gaia will be your race committee this Wed, 15 May.

A front will remain stalled across southern Virginia through early Monday as areas of low pressure track along it. An occluded front will move to the east late Monday. High pressure will build toward the region from the Ohio Valley during the middle of the week, followed by a cold front late in the week. Small Craft Advisories may be needed Monday night into Tuesday.
