Synopsis
High pressure will linger just south of the area this weekend.

A weak backdoor front could briefly make it into the area
Saturday, but should return north Saturday night. Unseasonably
hot conditions will continue next week.

Near term through Saturday night
As of 330 pm Friday... Latest surface analysis shows high pressure
centered just off fl with a frontal boundary across va. The front
will slowly slide south tonight into the local area, with little
impact other than some increasing clouds and a wind shift to the ne.

Low temps in the low 70s.

The aforementioned front weakens over the area into Saturday but at
the very least will allow for some lower temps over the eastern half
of the area (especially the coast) compared to today. High temps
will range from the mid 80s right at the coast, to the mid 90s far
western areas where the front will not reach. Enhanced convergence
along the weak front plus a slightly weaker ridge aloft could allow
isolated-widely scattered thunderstorms to develop during the aftn.

Dry into Saturday night with a partly mostly clear sky and light
southerly flow. Low temps in the lwr 70s.

Short term Sunday through Monday night
As of 330 pm Friday... Mid-level ridge remains in place early
next week, keeping the unseasonable heat going. Offshore flow at
the surface and 925 mb will ensure heat returns to the entire
forecast area after the brief reprieve the sea breeze is
expected to bring to some areas sat. Highs Sun and Mon will
likely be in the mid to upper 90s outside of the beaches with
lows in the low to mid 70s. Forecast soundings show impressive
mid-level subsidence inversion as well as an abundance of dry
air. Although some isolated cumulus will develop, skies will be
mostly clear through the period with very little chance of rain.

The GFS continues to suggest an MCS dropping in from the
northwest late Sat night, which may linger into Sun morning, but
at this point this does not seem to be very realistic and the
gfs is the only guidance hinting at the event.

Long term Tuesday through Friday
As of 330 pm Friday... Mid-level ridge will remain in place
through the end of next week. Medium range guidance is hinting
at the ridge starting to weaken late in the week with a cold
front dropping in from the northwest. Not sure if the front
would bring much, if any rainfall to the region late next week,
but it would at lest trend temperatures closer to normal.

-temperatures will run 10 degrees or more above climo through thu
before trending slightly cooler Fri as the 5h ridge weakens.

-rainfall chances will be almost nonexistent as the location and
orientation of the ridge axis prevent moisture return.

-heat index tue-thu will peak right around 100 each afternoon.

Aviation 23z Friday through Wednesday
As of 0z...VFR. Current west-northwest winds will veer sharply to
easterlies by tomorrow morning,becoming southeasterly in the afternoon
around 10kts with sea breeze gusts at coastal sites. Mostly clear
skies, with few clouds tomorrow and chance for isolated storm or two
in the afternoon.

Extended outlook... ContinuedVFR conditions are expected
through the weekend as high pressure dominates. There is a
slight chance of MVFR conditions each morning from low stratus
and or fog, and also from isolated afternoon thunderstorms.

Marine
As of 330 pm Friday... Fairly benign marine conditions for tonight
through Saturday night as a weak front drops into the area from the
north. This will mainly lead to a wind shift to the NE starting
around midnight from north to south, with speeds up to ~15 kt. Seas
2-3 ft both ahead of and behind the front. Onshore flow then for
Saturday Saturday night at 10-15 kt. There will be some very light
sely 7 second swell added in to the mix with the normal expected
wind wave.

High pressure off the coast and surface trough just inland from the
coast will maintain southwest flow across the waters early next
week. Speeds 10 to 15 kt will bump to a solid 15 kt with the sea
breeze each afternoon. Seas will run 2 to 3 ft next week, made
up mostly of south to southwest wind wave around 5 seconds.
