Synopsis
A cold front will slowly drop across the area today into Monday
morning. The front will stall over north carolina Monday into
Monday night, before lifting back north as a warm front on
Tuesday. A cold front crosses the area on Wednesday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 400 am edt Sunday...

early this morning, showers and isolated tstms were moving ewrd
thru extrm SRN SE va and NE nc. Stronger tstms produced heavy
rain over portions of NE nc overnight, where between 1 and 3
inches occurred. This latest radar activity will end or move off
the coast by 8 am. Warm and humid early this morning with temps
in the lower to mid 70s.

Another threat for showers tstms will develop again this aftn
into this evening, as the sfc cold front gradually drops into
and acrs the region. Coverage will be greatest acrs the srn
half of the area, closer to the boundary. Sky will generally
be partly sunny today, with MAX temps ranging thru the 80s.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Tuesday night
As of 400 am edt Sunday...

cold front will stall just south of the area during mon, with
chances for showers isolated tstms mainly over SRN SW areas.

Surface winds will be NE or E for much of the region on mon,
which will limit temp rise in many areas. On the lower md
eastern shore, temps could remain in the upper 70s along the
coast, if the NE flow is strong enough. Have currently forecast
around 80 lower 80s. Otherwise, expect MAX temps to mainly be
in the lower to mid 80s.

Cold front will lift back northward and acrs the region as a
warm front Mon night and tue, as stronger surface low organizes
in the upper midwest, and moves NE acrs the great lakes by
tue evening. Chances for sctd showers tstms will increase again
over the entire region late Mon night thru tue. Lows Mon night
70 to 75, and highs on Tue in the mid to upper 80s. Pcpn chances
will start to decrease fm west to east Tue night, as a cold
front starts to approach fm the wnw.

Long term Wednesday through Saturday
As of 315 pm edt Saturday...

a cold front will approach the CWA Wednesday morning, quickly moving
east through the region Wednesday afternoon. Chance pops were drawn
in for the potential of pre-frontal showers tstms... However, a
morning or mid-day FROPA will not allow convection to take advantage
of diurnal heating. The 12z GFS is most impressed with rain chances,
followed by a modest euro and canadian solution. Drier weather
settles in Thursday, with only slight chance pops remaining across
nc. 1024 mb high moves east over the mid-atlantic Thu pm thru sun
next weekend, keeping a majority of the area dry. The only portion
of our area with marginal rain chances will be in nc, where ridging
will be weaker. Most outdoor plans should fare well late next week
into the weekend.

Temperatures will remain warm Wednesday but cool down noticably,
starting Thursday, into the low-middle 80s. Dew points will also
drop into the low-middle 60s, helping to make conditions feel quite
comfortable for mid august. Overnight lows will range from the low-
mid 60s inland to near 70 degf along the coast.

Aviation 08z Sunday through Thursday
As of 300 am edt Sunday...

showers isolated tstms moving ewrd thru extrm SRN SE va and ne
nc early this morning, in advance of a cold front. Otherwise,
conditions at TAF sites ranged fmVFR to ifr due to stratus in
sw flow or heavier showers or tstms. MVFR ifr CIGS will still be
a possibility at all TAF sites thru 12-14z this morning, as the
front drops slowly sse acrs the area. But, pcpn will be ending
or moving off the coast also.

MainlyVFR conditions expected at all TAF sites after 14-15z,
and should continue this aftn into this evening. However, the
cold front will be sinking slowly thru the area, and could
trigger more sctd showers and tstms. The best chance will be
over the SRN third of the region, so just have vcsh at
orf phf ecg.

Outlook... The front drops south of the region mon, with a
chance of showers tstms mainly across SRN portions of the area.

Unsettled conditions will continue thru Tue night, as the front
lifts back northward as a warm front. A stronger cold front
moves across the region on wed.
