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.

Synopsis
A warm front will slowly approach the region tonight before
passing through Saturday. Low pressure will move into the
great lakes during this time, and the cold front associated
with the low will approach Sunday before passing through
Sunday night. High pressure will return for Monday and Tuesday
before moving offshore during the middle portion of next week.

Near term through Saturday
A surface boundary bisects central virginia this afternoon with
a moist east northeast flow from the atlantic to the north of
said boundary. The area of rain that plagued locations along and
east of the blue ridge this morning has waned a bit as it
entered a more stable airmass to the north. Temperatures have
held pretty steady thanks to the cloud cover and rain coverage,
ranging in the middle 60s to near 70 degrees area wide.

The aforementioned boundary will start lifting northward
overnight, but it will be slow, so have added drizzle for the
overnight and morning hours Saturday. Showers and thunderstorms
will continue to develop and press northeastward overnight.

Areas that have experienced heavy rain over the last 24 hours
are poised to see additional rainfall overnight. As such, we
have maintained a flash flood watch until late tonight for
portions of central and northern virginia, and southern portions
of eastern west virginia.

Given that the boundary has remained south, the potential for
strong storms has diminished, and we no longer expect severe
weather across our CWA overnight.

High res guidance indicates a downward trend in precipitation
coverage after midnight, as activity moves off to the east
northeast, though some additional activity could redevelop.

Overnight lows will remain in the 60s for most.

Short term Saturday night through Sunday night
The front will lift north of the potomac river Saturday
morning and should clear maryland later in the day. This will
provide a warm and unstable airmass over the cwa. At the same
time an upper level low will be rounding the lower great lakes
with vorticity advection passing overhead. This combined with
the warm front ushering in a warm and moist airmass, scattered
showers and thunderstorms will develop mid morning onward. Given
the aforementioned set up and ingredients, some of these storms
could be strong.

The stalled boundary will reside nearby on Sunday, with the
warm and humid air mass sticking around as well. Additional
showers and storms will be possible during Sunday afternoon with
daytime heating. The flow aloft will favor more of a westerly
trajectory as opposed to Saturday, with not as much favorable
lift aloft. The stalled boundary looks to translate to a cold
front and move through the region later on Sunday, helping bring
a bit more stable environment to the region Sunday night, as
well as drier conditions. With the threat for precipitation and
ample cloud cover, do not expect temperatures to stray too far
from normal or slightly above through the period.

Long term Monday through Friday
Canadian high pressure will build overhead for Monday through
Tuesday, bringing dry conditions along with sunshine and low
humidity. MAX temps will be in the lower to middle 80s for most
locations with min temps in the 50s and 60s.

The high will move offshore Wednesday through Friday and a west
to southwest flow will cause a warming trend in temperatures
along with a return of more humid conditions. The increased heat
and humidity may lead to a few showers and thunderstorms each
day, especially during the afternoon and evening hours.

Aviation 02z Saturday through Wednesday
Ifr to MVFR forecast through the overnight period with episodes
of lifr conditions possible as well. The terminals will see
additional showers and storms develop and approach from the west
southwest. The strongest activity and greatest impacts to
aviators will be at cho where better instability and higher
rainfall rates are expected to reside. Will maintain rain
chances at all terminals through much of the night before
tapering off after midnight from west to east. Expect
restrictions to remain overnight with ample moisture remaining
over the area. Have added drizzle in as well.

Gusty easterly breezes will slacken overnight, turning light
and southerly Saturday morning.VFR MVFR CIGS will hold on
during the day on Saturday. Additional showers and thunderstorms
will be possible through the remainder of the weekend, bringing
periods of sub-vfr conditions.

High pressure will bringVFR conditions Monday and Tuesday. The high
will move offshore Wednesday, and this may trigger a few showers and
thunderstorms, especially during the afternoon and evening
hours.

Marine
A frontal boundary south of the waters will remain stalled
overnight before lifting northward Saturday. Gusty easterly
winds ahead of the front have helped bring small craft advisory
conditions to the waters this evening, and this is expected to
persist into the overnight.

Winds are forecast to slacken towards Saturday morning
as the gradient weakens. Showers and storms may impact the
waters Saturday and Saturday night, potentially producing
locally gusty winds. Southerly channelling is looking more
likely Saturday afternoon over the middle bay, so have isued new
sca for this area period.

High pressure will build in behind a cold front Monday through
Tuesday. The high will move offshore Wednesday. A small craft
advisory may be needed for portions of the waters Monday and Monday
night... And again from the return southwest flow Wednesday.

Hydrology
Ongoing flood warnings are abound across central and northern
virginia this evening thanks to persistent moderate to heavy
rainfall overnight and early this morning. The heavier rain has
moved off to the north and east, but numerous road closures
remain across the affected areas. Heed any and all road closure
signs and do not venture in to any flooded areas.

While the earlier rains are moving out of the area to our north
and east, additional showers and thunderstorms are expected to
develop later this afternoon and into this evening across the
same areas that received the heaviest rainfall since yesterday.

As a result, a flash flood watch is in effect late this
afternoon through tonight for portions of central and northern
virginia, including portions of the shenandoah valley and
adjacent eastern west virginia counties. Additional rainfall
accumulations of one to two inches are expected across these
areas with localized higher amounts where stronger showers and
storms impact.

Tides coastal flooding
Water levels running one to two feet above astronomical normals
this afternoon. Easterly breezes will promote water levels
continuing to run at or just above this level through tonight.

Advisories have been expanded across much of the chesapeake
shoreline and remain for much of the tidal potomac. Many may
need extensions if the water levels do not start to decline on
Saturday morning. Winds becoming westerly early next week should
allow water levels to start falling.
