Synopsis
A weak cold front will drop across the region tonight into
memorial day before return back north of the area on Tuesday,
followed by a big warm up for the remainder of the week.

Near term until 6 am Monday morning
As of 730 pm edt Sunday...

latest msas has a cold front across pa ohio with a sfc trof just
west of the ches bay. First round of pulse tstrms has diminished
across the local area with svrl reports of trees down and marginal
hail over the past svrl hrs. See lsrakq for details.

Next will be the convective complex along and ahead of the apprchg
cold front later this eve thru the pre-dawn hrs. Latest high res
data has the NRN zones ERN shore getting the better organized storms
with little activity across the far south. Pops highest across the
ern shore where the best support for anything organized will be.

Otw, sct convection with the fropa. SPC continues to have the nrn
half of the fa in slight risk with a marginal risk down to the
va nc border. Threats continue to be large hail damaging wind
gusts. Would also expect a good deal of lightning as well. Lows
in te upr 60s-lwr 70s.

Short term 6 am Monday morning through Tuesday
As of 315 pm edt Sunday...

the front will drop farther south of the area during mon, under
a partly to mostly sunny sky. Not quite as warm in onshore
flow. Mainly just a slight to low end chance for showers tstms.

Highs on Mon will range thru the 80s to near 90, cooler near
the water.

The warm front will lift back north acrs the area Mon night into
tue morning. Upper ridging will remain anchored over the
southeast with sfc ridge setting up offshore. Remaining warm and
moderately humid. Partly sunny and a bit warmer once again.

Maintained a slight chc for mainly diurnally-driven thunderstorms
along the eastern third of the area on Tuesday.

Warmest day of the next week looks to be Wednesday.

Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
As of 315 pm edt Sunday...

big story in the extended will be continued very warm to hot
conditions across the region. An upper level ridge remains in
control at the start of the forecast period, amplifying across
the region on Wednesday. With w-sw to SW downsloping flow
during the day and 850mb temps in the 20-23c range, expect
temperatures to climb into the mid to upper 90s across much of
the area on Wednesday. Temperatures may even touch 100 degrees,
especially across far southern portions of the fa. Our one
saving grace is that decent mixing in low levels should keep
apparent temps near air temperatures. Thus, still don't expect
heat indices to be much of a factor. Warm and dry wed... But will
maintain slight chc pop for now for a stray shower or storm
given strong heating. But given strong downslope and no apparent
convective trigger, would expect coverage to be low at best.

Low temperatures on Wednesday night only drop into the low to
mid 70s.

By Thursday, the upper level ridge axis begins to break down push
east of the local area as a more potent shortwave develops and moves
across the midwest and great lakes. Thursday will likely be another
very hot day with temperatures making it up into the mid 90s across
much of the area. Shower and thunderstorm chances will be on the
increase as the shortwave and associated cold front approach and
cross the region late Thursday into early Friday. This boundary then
stalls lingers near to just south of the region into the weekend
bringing the potential for more unsettled conditions. Temperatures
cool down slightly Friday into the weekend, but are still expected
to remain above average as highs in the mid to upper 80s are
anticipated.

Aviation 00 Monday through Friday
As of 730 pm edt Sunday...

latest msas has a cold front across pa ohio with a sfc trof just
west of the ches bay. First round of storms which were near ric sby
over the past few hrs have dissipated.VFR conditions to start off
the forecast period even at ric where one of those storms occurred.

Next will be the convective complex along and ahead of the apprchg
cold front later this eve thru the pre-dawn hrs. Latest high res
data has the NRN zones ERN shore getting the better organized storms
with little activity across the far south. Went ahead and included
vcts at ric btwn 03z-06z given the latest high res data model. Sby
has the best chc of seeing organized convection btwn 02z-06z with
confidence high enough to include a tempo group for tstms there.

Expect MVFR CIGS in any TSTM with vsbys dropping AOB 2sm in lclly
heavy downpours.

Winds variable blo 10 kts ahead of the front, shifting to the
n-ne Monday behind the fropa.

Outlook:
vfr conditions continue thru tue, although conditions may
briefly drop to MVFR in any shwr or tstm.

Marine
As of 320 pm edt Sunday...

mostly quiet across the marine area this afternoon with generally
light and variable winds (5-10 knots). Waves ~1 ft in the bay and
seas 2-3 ft offshore. There remains a chance for showers and storms
to drop east and southeast late this afternoon into the overnight
hours with strong winds being the main marine hazard.

Winds will become southeasterly this evening ~10 knots as compact
low pressure approaches from the nw. A weak cold front will follow
this low, allowing winds to become NW ~10 knots late tonight. Winds
swing around to the NE on Monday and then S 10-15 knots by Tuesday
afternoon as high pressure aloft remains anchored over northern gulf
coast. Waves in the bay will generally run 1-2 ft while seas
offshore will stay in the 2-4 ft range through mid week.
