area forecast discussion
national weather service baltimore md washington dc
1005 am edt Sun jun 16 2019

Synopsis
A cold front will approach the area from the north today. The
front will stall out nearby on Monday and remain nearly
stationary in the mid-atlantic region through much of this
week. It may finally shift southeast of the region by late in
the week.

Near term through tonight
12z kiad sounding was significantly drier (especially in the
600-800 mb layer) than model forecasts for the same time would
have indicated, but overall the potential setup for the rest of
today has not changed a whole lot. Radar currently (14z) shows
some light rain sprinkles across the i-81 corridor and further
scattered development west of there across west virginia.

But what we're watching today is the ongoing MCS in ky oh,
moving east. The attendant vortex will cross the mountains this
afternoon and interact with a developing leeside trough east of
the appalachians, coincident with peak heating. The intensity of
the storms west of the blue ridge is in question given the weak
shortwave involved, but activity should ramp up further east.

Model guidance has around 30-40kt bulk shear with some modest
cape during the afternoon. The high-res models are favoring a
relative maximum somewhere near the dc metro, which would be on
the south side of the mid-level shortwave, but the agreement is
rather poor (with some guidance showing almost nothing at all
this afternoon). Staying the course for now with only minor
changes, keeping the highest pops between the dc & baltimore
metros.

Best timing for severe weather still looks to be between about 3
pm and 8 pm. However, the chance for showers and perhaps even
thunderstorms continues through the entire night as additional
weak shortwaves approach in the fast-moving westerly flow aloft.

Short term Monday through Tuesday night
Monday still appears as it will be the most active day this
week with a slow moving front nearby and ripples of upper level
energy aiding in t-storm formation. Shear and storm motions will
be weaker suggesting an increased flash flood threat especially
given mid- level flow becoming parallel to sfc front which will
also favor training. CAPE values, on the other hand, are
expected to be much higher than on Sunday, which also support a
severe wx and flash flood threat. A flash flood watch may be
issued for some areas at this time tomorrow once confidence in
location of t-storms increases. Simulated satellite imagery from
various global models indicate convection will be more
widespread and intense than today.

Long term Wednesday through Saturday
Wednesday and Thursday will continue the pattern of previous
days, as a stalled front will remain in the region just to our
north. High pressure over the western atlantic will continue to
funnel warm, humid air northward into the region, and
disturbances will continue crossing the region. This combination
will result in repeated rounds of showers and thunderstorms,
some of which may produce torrential rain and gusty winds.

Uncertainty exists Friday, with some recent models like the
ecmwf sending a stronger wave through and pushing the front
south of the region faster, while the ggem and GFS are slower
and linger the front on Friday before finally pushing dry
canadian high pressure southward into the region Saturday. By
Saturday, the canadian high pressure should dominate, with a
better risk of dry weather. This should also result in somewhat
lower temperatures and markedly lower humidity.

Aviation 14z Sunday through Thursday
Scattered to numerous showers and storms expected this afternoon
through Tuesday. Gusty winds and heavy rain, with flight
restrictions, are possible with thunderstorms, but confidence
is too low to have anything more than vcts and -shra at this
time.

Vfr CIGS vis should prevail Wednesday and Thursday. However,
typical summer conditions will lead to typical summer problems.

Patchy early morning mist fog may result in reduced vis,
especially at the more rural terminals. Scattered thunderstorms,
primarily during the afternoon and evening hours, may result in
reduced vis, low cigs, and gusty winds.

Marine
Gusty winds ongoing today with SCA criteria being met over much
of the waters, and a few gusts approaching gale (though I don't
expect this to be widespread). Scattered to numerous showers
and thunderstorms are expected this afternoon through Tuesday,
and some special marine warnings will likely be required with
gusty winds, some small hail, and heavy rain in the
thunderstorms.

Winds will generally remain below SCA criteria Wednesday and
Thursday with a stationary front in the area keeping the
gradient weak. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms may
produce gusty winds, resulting in potential special marine
warnings both days.

Hydrology
Concern is increasing about flood flash flood potential;
however, confidence and certainty are still pretty low. Moisture
is not as significant or deep as we might typically like, but
having a stalled front in the area does mean there's an
increased likelihood of training thunderstorms and thus perhaps
some flooding. Will be analyzing the daytime guidance suite to
see if any better consensus is reached, but given the convective
nature of things, any watch issuances will probably be fairly
short-fused in nature.
