AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 442 AM EST Sun Jan 16 2022

SYNOPSIS. A potent storm system will track from the Southeast United States northeast across the local area late today into early Monday morning. High pressure returns for Monday night through midweek.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 420 AM EST Sunday .

Early this morning, 1032mb high pressure was centered over nrn New England while low pressure was centered over the Gulf coast states. Increasing high and mid level clouds were spreading NNE into the region well in advance of low pressure to the SSW. Temps ranged from the upper teens to the lower 30s. High pressure will gradually move east and off the New England coast by early this aftn, while one piece of the low lifts nwrd through the mountains, and a secondary low moves NE through SC. This low will then lift nwrd up through NC and east-central VA from late this aftn through this evening while intensifying. It then continues NNE through PA and into ern NY later tonight into Mon aftn.

Initial slug of WAA/Isentropic overrunning moisture ahead of the system will result a quick burst of snow lifting S to N over the area late this morning into this aftn, quickly turning to rain along the coastal areas from Hampton Roads/NE NC up to the Atlc coast of MD. However, that change will take a bit longer for the I-95 corridor and more so over to the VA Piedmont. Looking at our experimental in-house snow rates guidance and impressive mid-level QG omega axis pivoting through, it's not at all out of the question that we overcome marginal dynamic profiles locally over the I-95 corridor and pick up a quick 1-2 inches of snow later this morning through mid-aftn before the warm nose quickly lifts across central VA and forces rapid mid- level warming. This will entail an abrupt changeover to sleet and eventually plain rain over the I-95 zones from mid aftn into early this evening from SE to NNW, continuing into tonight as mid-level warming works its way well inland. However, with freezing temps at the sfc to be overcome across the piedmont, light icing is likely over the western half of the area. The area of greatest concern locally remains from around Farmville south to Boydton. These areas could receive 0.1-0.2" ice accumulation on top of about 1-3" of snow. This enhances the concern for additional tree damage and power outages as well as potential travel disruptions before relatively milder air arrives late this evening.

Snow accumulations are on the order of an inch or two for the I-95 corridor, with localized amounts of up to 3" not at all out of the question for the far NNW portions of the Advy area from Midlothian up to Short Pump to Ladysmith. So, have maintained Winter Weather Advisory for these areas, and southward to Northampton county NC, with Winter Storm Warnings just west for a combination of 2-5" of snow plus light icing on the back side.

Finally, quickly deepening low lifting across the area will bring very strong winds. Have issued a Wind Advisory for coastal sections of the area, with gusts to 45 mph expected. Even inland, gusts of 30-40 mph are likely over the western half of the area this evening before backing off late tonight. Even with a changeover to rain likely over most of if not the entire area by that point, additional power outages are a distinct possibility over the area late this aftn and evening. The system lifts out of the region late tonight, with top-down drying ensuing. Some lingering light mixed pcpn possible after midnight, but expect dry conditions by sunrise Mon morning.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. As of 420 AM EST Sunday .

Sfc low pressure will lift NNE through NY and into SE Canada during Mon. The upper-level low will also be pulling NE during Mon. However, a secondary shortwave trough will move across the region Mon aftn. This may provide enough lift and moisture for a few rain/snow showers to develop Mon aftn into early Mon evening. Temps will be above freezing at this time, so little to no accumulation of snow is expected during this time period. Temps will remain fairly steady on Mon, as the colder air filters back into the area on the backside of the sfc low that will be north of the area. In addition, clouds will be developing again, limiting any heating during the aftn. Westerly winds will be elevated on Mon as well. Sustain winds are forecasted to be 15-20 mph with gusts 25-35 mph inland, and sustain winds 20-25 mph with gusts 35-45 mph along the coast. Highest winds will be along the immediate shore of the bay and ocean. These winds will lead to wind chills in the mid 20s to lower 30s for Mon aftn.

High pressure will be centered SW or W of the area Mon night into Tue morning. Temps will drop into the 20s to near 30. The center of the high will slide by to our south and off the coast for Tue and Tue night. Mostly sunny on Tue with highs in the upper 30s to mid 40s. Clear or mostly clear Tue night with lows ranging through the 20s into the lower 30s.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 420 AM EST Sunday .

There is decent model consensus to begin the medium range period, and this features high pressure centered offshore Wednesday, with a cold front approaching from the NW as a cold upper trough dives into the Great Lakes. Wednesday will likely be the mildest day of the period with high temperatures ranging from the mid/upper 40s NW to the mid 50s SW. The overall model consensus depicts the cold front dropping through the area later Wednesday night into Thursday morning with colder air filtering in from the NW. PoPs for rain showers are 30-50% at this time, and there is a potential for a rain/snow mix on the NW fringe as precipitation ends. Forecast highs Thursday range from the upper 30s NW to the upper 40s SE, after morning lows around 30F NW to around 40F SE.

Attention then turns to the late week period. A colder airmass arrives from the NW Friday into Saturday with the potential for a vigorous shortwave and surface low pressure lifting NE in vicinity of the Carolina coast. Confidence is low in this time period despite some deterministic global models showing the potential for snow across the southern Mid-Atlantic and eastern Carolinas. It is best to use ensemble guidance this far out, and the EPS has 30-50% probs for 1" of snow Friday-Saturday and 20-30% for 3" (which is somewhat notable at this range), the GEFS has similar values, and the CMC has lower values. It is important to follow the latest forecasts over the next several days and avoid extreme outliers until details come into better focus. Regardless, it will likely be much colder later next week into the weekend with highs in the upper 20s to 30s, and lows in the teens and 20s.

AVIATION /10Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 115 AM EST Sunday .

Early this morning, 1032mb high pressure was centered over nrn New England while low pressure was centered over the Gulf coast states. High pressure will gradually move east and off the New England coast by early this aftn, while one piece of the low lifts nwrd through the mountains, and a secondary low moves northeast through SC. VFR conditions are expected to prevail at the TAF sites until about 11am or noon today. Then, conditions deteriorate quickly this aftn into this evening, as low pressure tracks NNE over the coastal plain of NC and into east-central VA. Pcpn is expected to begin as SN at RIC (potentially moderate to heavy for a 1-3 hr period), before transitioning to PL, briefly FZRA, then RA. Elsewhere, mainly RA is expected, although a brief RA/SN mix is possible during the onset at SBY/PHF. IFR/LIFR conditions are expected to develop at RIC/PHF/ORF/ECG during this aftn, with MVFR at SBY. An ENE wind is expected to increase to 10-15kt with gusts to 20kt inland, and 15-25kt with gusts to 30-40kt toward the coast later this aftn into this evening. Also, have wind shear (WS020) of 45-50kt from the ESE at SBY/ORF/PHF/ECG late this aftn into early this evening.

Degraded flight conditions continue into early tonight, as low pressure tracks up through VA. A strong ESE wind is expected late this aftn into this evening, esply toward the coast, and this will shift to SW overnight, as the low departs to the north. Drying and breezy conditions are expected Mon, as low pressure tracks into New England and high pressure builds across the SE. VFR conditions are expected Tue into Wed, as high pressure builds across the area. A cold front drops across the area Wed night into Thu with a chc of showers.

MARINE. As of 330 AM EST Sunday .

Gale headlines in place across all the waters as low pres across the deep south this morning moves ne along the I-95 corridor late this aftrn and eve before lifting ne while deepening late tonite and Mon.

NE winds today become E-SE late this aftrn and eve and rapidly increase to 25-35 knots with gusts of 40-45 knots as the low tracks across the area. Wind probs cont to show a period of very strong gales to potentially a few storm force gusts btwn 21Z-00Z across the srn zones, spreading N into the remainder of the area btwn 00Z-06Z.

Winds briefly diminish while shifting to the S, then ramp back up as they turn to W/SW between 06-12Z Mon. This is due to deep mixing and the rapidly deepening sfc low north of the local area (on the order of 20mb/6 hr). This results in gale force gusts contg thru the day Mon and into Mon evening along the coastal waters. Winds diminish Mon night/Tues as high pressure builds into the area.

Seas rapidly build to btwn 10-15 ft late this aftn/eve (due to the onshore flow), then remain elevated into Mon. High surf advisories remain in effect from later today across the srn waters, spreading north along the Delmarva beaches tonight as near shore waves build to 8 ft or higher due to the strong onshore winds. Nearshore waves subside Mon as the flow turns offshore. Waves in the Bay will also rapidly build, especially across the Lower Bay, where 5-7 ft waves will be possible this eve (and up to 8-9ft at the mouth of the Bay).

Conditions improve by mid week as high pres builds into the area. However, seas may take a while to drop below 5 ft Tue/Tue night.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. As of 430 AM EST Sunday .

Strong low pressure will approach from the sw this morn, track just inland from the Bay/Ocean waters later today, then rapidly off to the north tonight/Mon. As a result, a strong onshore (E-SE) flow will rapidly increase late this afternoon into tonight, then shift to the W/SW overnight and last into Mon aftn.

This pattern tends to lead to the most significant tidal flooding across the western shore of the middle/upper Bay in response to E to SE winds to Gale force, then as the winds shift to the SW overnight, areas in MD lower shore along the Bay will see a rapid rise in water levels after midnight/early Mon AM.

Have replaced the Coastal Flood Watch with a Warning for areas including Windmill Pt, Lewisetta, Bishop's Head, Crisfield, Saxis where confidence is high enuf that at least some moderate flooding will occur. Also, did a coastal flood advsry for the srn Ches Bay and James River where minor some flooding is expected during this evenings high tide.

Tidal water levels rapidly diminish by later Mon morning as the low pulls away and winds become offshore. In addition to tidal flooding, high surf advisories cont along the coast starting later today as seas build to 10 to 15 feet. Rough surf may result in instances of beach erosion and dune overwash.
