Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC 930 PM EDT Mon Sep 27 2021

SYNOPSIS. A cold front will move through the region from the north on Tuesday evening. Canadian high will build back into the region behind the frontal passage and remain in place through the early part of this weekend. Another system may impact the region on Sunday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM TUESDAY MORNING/.

Increasing mid-high level clouds overnight ahead of a cold front dropping south from Pennsylvania. Expecting dry conditions through much of the night with increasing PoPs across the NW after 09Z.

SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/. As the high pressure departs the SE shore, warm and moist advection will continue to be introduced early Tuesday morning. A large upper level feature will push down across the area with an initial shortwave trough moving through western MD during the late overnight hours into early morning on Tuesday and move ESE. With this feature, coupled with modest instability parameters with that warm, moist advection coming from southerly flow, a few showers and thunderstorms are possible for the initial round. It does not look as organized as the next feature in the afternoon but still may bring some showers and gusty winds to areas mainly north of I-66. Also worth mentioning, decent midlevel lapse rates along with cooler midlevel temperatures may allow for some smaller hail embedded with any thunderstorms that do form with this line, though it looks isolated in nature.

As the shortwave pulls out by early afternoon, a cold front associated with a deep upper level trough will start to migrate through the area. With peak daytime heating in place, this disturbance may become a bit more organized in nature. MUCAPE values continue to look fairly strong with 2000+ j/kg possible east of I-81 during the afternoon and evening hours. Bulk shear values continue to moderately impress with 30 to 35 knots. Guidance continues to favor the strongest storms along and east of I-95 by the evening hours. Some strong to severe storms are possible east of I-81 but especially along and east of the I-95 corridor. Main threats for these storms will be for damaging winds and large hail. Peak strength looks to be anywhere from 6 to 10 pm before peak heating diminishes. With a lack of strong upper level forcing, coverage looks to remain scattered in nature but will continue to monitor the latest guidance.

After the front passes late Tuesday night into Wednesday, some residual showers could linger across the northern portions of the CWA before morning rush hour on Wednesday. Canadian high pressure starts to build in from the north and allow an extended dry period to commence.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. A prolonged stretch of dry weather and below normal temperatures is expected to start the long term period. By Thursday, the longwave pattern across the CONUS will be highly amplified, and as a result, will remain rather stagnant heading into this weekend. An upper low embedded within a longer wave trough will be situated near the Gulf of Maine, while a relatively narrow, but high amplitude ridge will extend from Florida through the Great Lakes and up over Hudson Bay. With those features moving very little, deep layer north to northwesterly flow will reside over the area through at least Saturday as the upper low continues to spin off the New England coast and the ridge remains established to our west. This will lead to several days of dry weather, sunny skies, and slightly below normal temperatures.

Further to the west, a trough initially situated over the Rockies will break down into several pieces during the latter portions of the week, as ridging builds to its north. Depending on how this happens, one or more of these features may interact with the aforementioned upper low as it starts to retrograde slightly toward the west. With many moving pieces involved, this remains a low- predictability forecast. As a result, many different solutions are advertised by the available deterministic and ensemble guidance. Most solutions maintain the dry stretch of weather through Sunday, but some solutions (most notably the 12z GFS) bring rain back into the area.

AVIATION /01Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. VFR conditions expected through tonight ahead of the next disturbance that will cross through the northern terminals by early Tuesday morning. A few showers possible for the initial disturbance passage. The next one will introduce higher chances for isolated categorical restrictions, mainly for the eastern terminals (BWI, MTN, DCA, IAD). Showers and thunderstorms possible Tuesday afternoon with showers possible through early Wednesday morning. VFR conditions will follow after the front passes by mid-morning/early afternoon Wednesday.

Quiet conditions are anticipated for Thursday and Friday in the wake of the mid-week cold frontal passage. Expect VFR to rule the period with winds out of the northwest to northerly direction.

MARINE.

Winds are expected to strengthen through the overnight and begin to relax Tue morning.

Thunderstorms will be possible on Tuesday that may require a few SMWs over our marine areas. SCA conditions possible late Tuesday night into early Wednesday with a front passing through the area. After that, high pressure returns and winds diminish, leading to sub- SCA criteria the remainder of Wednesday.

Sub-SCA level winds are expected on both Thursday and Friday.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING.

Only Havre de Grace may reach minor coastal flooding overnight, but anomalies have dropped slightly in the past two hours and are currently running around 1.7 ft. This is lower than the 2 ft anomaly observed last Saturday night which did not result in any flooding. Will continue to monitor, but trends suggest no advisory will be needed tonight.
