AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 159 AM EDT Mon Sep 27 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure builds across the region tonight and Monday. A cold front is expected to cross the region Tuesday afternoon and evening, bringing a chance for showers and isolated storms. High pressure returns Wednesday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. As of 815 PM EDT Sunday .

Clear/comfy as high pres builds in from the west. Lows arnd 50 west of I95, 50-55 from I95 to the Ches Bay, 55-60 along the coast.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 330 PM EDT Sunday .

High pressure slides offshore Monday. A SW wind will bring a warming trend with high temperatures rising into the low 80s (upper 70s at the coast). Remaining dry Monday into Monday night, although there will be a modest increase in low-level moisture. Not as cool Monday night with low temperatures ranging from the upper 50s to low 60s (mid 60s for the coasts of SE VA/NE NC).

A weak surface trough develops across the region Tuesday in response to an upper trough digging across the Northeast. Numerical guidance continues to show moisture and instability pooling in vicinity of this trough and then ahead of a cold front during the afternoon and evening hours. This will bring the potential for showers and isolated thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and evening, with the highest PoPs across the northeast half of the area in closer proximity to the better upper level forcing. Rather warm ahead of the front Tuesday with high temperatures in the low/mid 80s and moderately humid with dewpoints rising into the 60s.

The cold front drops through the region later Tuesday night, with weak high pressure building north of the region Wednesday. Mainly dry later Tuesday night into Wednesday. Low temperatures Tuesday night/Wednesday morning range from the upper 50s N to mid 60s S, followed by highs Wednesday ranging from the mid 70s N to low 80s along the northern shore of the Albemarle Sound.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 330 PM EDT Sunday .

Another cold front drops through the region Wednesday night as Canadian high pressure builds north of the region Wednesday night into Thursday. The region should remain dry with an upper low taking shape across New England and Atlantic Canada, keeping the local area in dry NW flow aloft. Expect a return to more seasonable temperatures and humidity behind the front on Wednesday night through Friday with high temperatures in the lower to mid 70s, and low temperatures in the 50s.

Spread amongst the deterministic guidance persists for next weekend. Will continue to side with the blended forecast until a more stable solution emerges. As such, PoPs are no higher than slight chance PoPs near the coast Saturday/Sunday with the remainder of the area staying dry. Afternoon high temps continue in the lower to mid 70s and overnight lows generally in the 50s.

AVIATION /06Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 125 AM EDT Monday .

VFR flying weather is expected to prevail through the period. Light and variable winds early this morning become SW 5-10 kt today. A few diurnal CU with bases around 5kft this afternoon.

OUTLOOK . High pressure moves offshore Tues morning. A cold front slides across the area Tues afternoon and eve with sct convection. High pressure builds back into the region Wed thru Fri.

MARINE. As of 155 AM EDT Monday .

Sfc hi pres centered just SSW of the local waters drifts to off the coastal Carolinas through today. SW winds 5-15 kt today w/ waves 1-2 ft/seas 2-3 ft. Wind probs show greater than 60-70% for low end/marginal SW winds to 20 kt over the central Ches Bay (N of Windmill Point VA) tonight OTW. will cap speeds at 15 kt on the bay/rivers/sound and 20 kt on the ocean (mainly N of Cape Charles VA). Waves 1-3 ft/seas 2-4 ft. Ahead of a cold front approaching from the NNW . WSW winds AOB 15 kt Tue . then become N Tue evening/night post cold front. Wind probs remain BLO 30-40% for SCA windspeeds on N surge behind the front into Wed. Generally quiet marine wx at the end of the week into the weekend . though swells will likely increase due to TC tracking N well off the coast.

Low rip current risk today.
