What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

area forecast discussion
national weather service wakefield va
708 pm edt Sat jun 23 2018

Synopsis
A trough will pass across the region tonight. A cold front will
approach from the northwest late Sunday, then drop across the
area Sunday evening into Monday morning. High pressure will
build in from the north Monday afternoon into Tuesday.

Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
As of 400 pm edt Saturday...

severe threat gradually diminishing at this hour. Have gone
ahead and cleared much of severe t-storm watch from
northampton gates hertford nc north and northeast to the york
river, clearing out from there west. Still watching sct storms
across coastal NE nc and far SE md... So will likely allow rest
of watch box to expire at 8pm.

Previous discussion...

a shortwave trough is tracking across the region this aftn,
with scattered showers tstms developing along a surface trough.

Effective shear is 40-50kt, with MLCAPE ranging from 1500-
2500j kg. Mid-level lapse rates are marginal. However, there is
a severe threat based on the shear and instability with a severe
tstm watch in effect through 8 pm for ERN va and NE nc. The
main threats are hail and damaging wind gusts. Convection should
diminish this evening. However, there is a lingering potential
for showers overnight as another subtle shortwave trough tracks
across the region. Warm and humid tonight with lows in the 70s.

Short term 6 am Sunday morning through Tuesday
As of 400 pm edt Saturday...

very warm and still rather humid on Sunday, as winds will be
more wsw in advance of an actual cold front approaching fm the
nw. Partly to mostly sunny with highs generally 90-95f.

Dewpoints should remain in the mid 70s during peak heating for
ne nc adjacent to the albemarle sound and this will result in
heat indices of 105-108f and a heat advisory has been issued. It
could be close in far SE va as well, so the heat advisory may
need to be expanded. Isolated to scattered showers tstms
(20-30%) are possible later Sunday aftn evening, with a
lingering chc of showers into Monday morning. Lows Sunday night
will range from the upper 60s to mid 70s. Monday will be dry for
most of the area and slightly less humid, as high pressure
starts to build in from the north. Iso-sct (20-30%) sea-breeze
convection is possible in NE ne. Highs will mainly be in the mid
to upper 80s.

High pressure is forecast to build into the region Monday night
into Tuesday resulting in pleasant and dry conditions. Lows
Monday night range through the 60s to around 70f far se,
followed by highs Tuesday in the low mid 80s.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
As of 415 pm edt Saturday...

the big story in the extended will be the warming trend as a
strong and anomalous ridge centers itself over the NE states
through the end of next week. After temperatures close to normal
on Wednesday and Thursday with an upper trough moving through,
expect temps to rise into the middle 90s Friday and Saturday in
response to the 595+ dm high centered over new england. Other
than the chance of showers and storms Wed night into Thursday
with the frontal passage, expect mainly diurnally driven
afternoon evening pop up thunderstorms Friday and Saturday. Will
need to maintain chance pops each day Fri Sat to account for
these storms, but it certainly does not look like widespread
rainfall these days.

Aviation 23z Saturday through Thursday
As of 220 pm edt Saturday...

sct showers tstms are developing as of 18z in vicinity of a
trough over the piedmont. Otherwise, sct-bkn CU with bases
~3-5kft and a SW wind of 8-12kt. Any showers tstms will be
capable of producing brief ifr conditions in heavy rain along
with strong wind gusts. Showers tstms should dissipate this
evening, with a slight chc of showers lingering overnight. Wsw
flow prevails Sunday, with sct CU and a 20-30% chc of
aftn evening tstms.

A cold front finally drops through the region Monday. Mainly dry
with a northerly wind. However, there is a slight chc of aftn
sea-breeze showers tstms at ecg. High pressure and drier air
prevail Monday night into Tuesday. High pressure moves offshore
by Wednesday and Thursday with a chc of aftn evening
showers tstms by Thursday.

Marine
As of 415 pm edt Saturday...

have opted to drop the SCA for the northern coastal waters.

Latest guidance and current observations suggest the seas will
stay at or below 4 ft tonight into Sunday. Otherwise, south
winds tonight of 10-20kt will shift to the SW and weaken late
tonight into Sunday. A cold front moves through Sunday night
allowing winds to shift to the north. May see wind gusts to 15
to 20 kt behind the front, especially Monday night as the high
builds in. The high shifts offshore by Wednesday which will
allow winds to turn southerly.

Hydrology
The river flood warning for the rivanna at palmyra has been
cancelled as the water level has dropped below flood stage. A
flood warning is also in effect for the north anna and upper
pamunkey rivers due to the combination of heavy rainfall and
increased dam releases at lake anna. The increased dam releases
have been terminated, but it will still take some time for the
water to flow through the basin. Therefore, the warning has been
extended at least through this evening.

Tides coastal flooding
Another round of minor coastal flooding near bishops head with
this evenings high tide, and coastal flood advisory has been
issued. After tonight, it does not look like additional coastal
flooding is expected.

A moderate rip current risk continues along the eastern shore
beaches with low risk at va beach and the northern ob.

Climate
Ric ended up with 7.61 inches of rain Friday. See rerric for details.

This is the second all time daily rainfall record at ric. The all-
time daily rainfall record at ric is 8.79 inches set on august 12,
1955 associated with hurricane connie.

In addition, orf set a new daily rainfall record of 2.28 inches Friday.

See rerorf for details.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
