area forecast discussion

906 pm edt Sat mar 25 2017

Synopsis
A backdoor cold front will move into the outlook area this
evening and stall just south of the area overnight and Sunday
before returning north as a warm front on Monday. Another cold
front will cross the area late Tuesday.

Near term /through Sunday night/
A backdoor cold front is located across central pa this evening.

High pressure south of hudson bay will move to the southeast and
into northern new england tonight. This will help push the cold
front southward into the mid-atlantic resulting in an airmass
change Sunday morning. E-ne winds will usher in cool and damp
conditions from north to south Sunday morning resulting in a
much different day from today.

Iso-sct showers are possible overnight as a moist airmass stays
in place and backdoor cold front moves southward. Clouds will
increase and lower this evening mainly from north to south.

Light rain and patchy drizzle are possible Sunday as the
boundary layer moistens. Much cooler conditions expected across
much of the outlook area Sunday. Temps will range from the 40s
across northeast md to the low-mid 60s across the central
va. There is uncertainty in the temperature forecast for Sunday
as the backdoor cold front will dictate the high temperatures.

Prev discussion...

much better chance for showers Sun night in area of strong
surface and moisture convergence and warm air overrunning cool
surface air.

Short term /Monday through Monday night/
Front lifts north as a warm front Mon afternoon with
temperatures rising back into the 70s. Area will be in a light
westerly downslope flow leading to some clearing. Risk of
showers increases again late Mon night and Tue as low pressure
and associated cdfnt crosses the area. Enough instability is
also present on Tue for a risk of t-storms. Drying expected late
tue night behind fropa.

Long term /Tuesday through Saturday/
Front approaches from the west on Tuesday with showers and
thunderstorms possible. Conditions should start drying out early
on Wednesday as high pressure builds over our region. Dry
conditions continue into Thursday before a wave of low pressure
moves through the mid- atlantic increasing pops Thursday night
and into Friday. Another low pressure moves east towards the
mid- atlantic Friday night into Saturday keeping rainy
conditions over our region.

Aviation /01z Sunday through Thursday/
Cigs will drop this evening and become ifr across the terminals
except kcho by Sunday morning. CIGS will remain low Sunday. Cigs
may lift to MVFR Sunday afternoon but confidence is low and cigs
may stay ifr through the day. CIGS will drop to ifr/lifr Sunday
night. Winds become e-ne tonight and Sunday. Showers expected
sun night everywhere.

Cold front approaches on Tuesday, then dry conditions return
Wednesday into Thursday. Sub-vfr periods possible Tuesday into
Tuesday night, thenVFR Wednesday into Thursday.

Marine

late this evening behind backdoor front. Winds remain gusty
across the NRN waters and upper potomac river through sun. Winds
then increase again Sun night across the southern waters with
sca Mon and Mon night.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
