Synopsis
A strong ridge of high pressure aloft will persist over the
southeastern u.S. Through Wednesday, producing above normal
temperatures and generally dry weather.

Near term through tonight
As of 345 am Sunday...

the latest surface analysis continues to show a weak surface trough
extending southwesterly across the piedmont of va into sc. Behind
the trough, surface winds are more westerly and dew points range in
the upper 60s. To the east of the trough, dew points range between
70 and 75. The air mass ahead of the surface trough is weakly to
moderately unstable with elevated CAPE values of 1000-2000 j kg. A
broken band of showers and perhaps even a thunderstorms will
continue to move east across the southern coastal plain, sandhills
and far southeastern piedmont early this morning.

The persistent mid and upper level ridge will continue to dominate
the weather across the region today and tonight. General subsidence
associated with the ridge and warm temperatures aloft should
preclude convection across most of the area, an isolated
thunderstorm will again be possible this afternoon and especially
this evening as a weak disturbance moves across the area. The best,
albeit limited, chances of storms will be across the north closer to
the approaching wave and on the periphery of the ridge.

Low level thickness values this morning will range in the 1412-1420m
range will support highs in the 92 to 99 range. Once again, surface
dewpoints will mix with drier air aloft and dew points will range in
the 60-65 range during the hottest part of the afternoon producing
heat index values similar or just a degree to two warmer than the
actual dry air temperature. Lows tonight will range in the 65 to 72
range. -blaes

Short term Monday through Monday night
As of 410 am Sunday...

the upper level ridge will continue to dominate the weather on
Monday and Monday night with much above normal temperatures and
generally dry conditions. A disturbance moving along the northern
periphery of the ridge could produce a shower or storm during the
afternoon or evening. In addition, another approaching back door
cold front could bring an isolated shower along with slightly cooler
temperatures to the northeast. Otherwise, it'll be continued hot
with highs in the 90 to 99 range and lows in the upper 60s to lower
70s. -blaes

Long term Tuesday through Saturday
As of 430 am Saturday...

the trend continues in the extended for hot and dry weather through
the middle of the work week with a relaxing of temperatures and a
slight increase in rain chances by Friday Saturday. This remains
robustly supported in the gfs, cmc, and ECMWF ensembles this
morning.

Tuesday into Wednesday mid-level ridging stays anchored over
the gulf of mexico with mainly westerly flow across the region.

Even though 500 mb heights aren't that impressive (peak heights
in the gom around 590 dam), downslope flow Tuesday into
Wednesday will help 850 mb temperatures surge towards 20 degrees
c. The deterministic ECMWF actually pushes 850 mb temperatures
to around 24 degrees c Wednesday afternoon. 1000 850 mb
thicknesses also follow a similar pattern with both the gfs
ecmwf showing an uptick, with the ECMWF showing the most robust
increase with thicknesses around 1445 m Wednesday afternoon.

The GFS shows values around 1435 m. Thicknesses when kfay
reached 99 back on the 24th were around 1435 m. Therefore have
kept forecast showing 100 degrees possible. It should be noted
that thicknesses presented by the ECMWF would support low 100s
Wednesday. As of current it appears daytime mixing will keep
heat indices just under advisory threshold over much of the
area. Still though, it is important to take precautions for the
heat. Remain hydrated, avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, and
limit strenuous activities when spending time outdoors.

For the remainder of the extended an upper low will eject east as it
begins to feel the influence of an upper level over the hudson bay.

In general, it appears most of the energy will wash over WV and
va and stay north of nc. A surface cold front in association
with the energy will likely stay north of the area as well, but
heights will likely fall enough to allow some convective
initiation. For now have kept the possibility of showers and
thunderstorms mostly in the sight chance category. Highs for the
weekend will likely be in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees f,
or slightly above normal.

Aviation 09z Sunday through Thursday
As of 330 am Sunday...

24 hour TAF period: a broken band of showers and an isolated
thunderstorm will continue to push east across the eastern piedmont
and southern coastal plain this morning potential affecting the krwi
and kfay terminal. Otherwise, an area of MVFR stratus with ceilings
around 1.5kft will continue through daybreak across the sandhills
and coastal plain impacting the kfay and krwi terminals. Elsewhere,
mainly scattered clouds at various layers including 8-10kft and
25kft will move across the region during the 24 hour TAF period.

Some scatteredVFR cumulus clouds with bases of 5-7kft feet will
develop this afternoon as well but other than a rogue thunderstorm,
conditions should remain dry. Light southwest winds at 10kts or less
will become west to west-northwesterly this afternoon.

Looking further ahead: mainlyVFR conditions are expected through
the period as high pressure dominates the weather. An isolated
shower or storm is possible, especially on Monday afternoon and
evening and late Thursday. -blaes
