AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 431 AM EST Sun Jan 17 2021

SYNOPSIS. Upper level low pressure will track across the Ohio Valley, then into New England today through Monday. High pressure will slide from the Gulf Coast States to the Southeast Coast Monday through Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. As of 400 AM EST Sunday .

Early this morning, strong low pressure was over nrn New England providing a dry WSW flow into the region. The sky was clear or mostly clear with temps in the lower to mid 30s.

Dry wx is expected across the area the next several days, with just some clouds from time to time. Upper level low pressure will track across the OH Valley this aftn into the evening, pushing some mainly high clouds into and across the region. Otherwise, mostly sunny then partly sunny with highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s, with SW winds 10-15 mph (a few gusts near 20 mph).

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. As of 400 AM EST Sunday .

That upper level low pressure will lift NE and into New England tonight through Mon. This will result in a weak upper trough crossing the area Mon morning into Mon aftn, with mainly mid level clouds. So, the sky may be mostly cloudy into midday/early aftn, then partly sunny. Highs on Mon will range from the mid 40s to lower 50s.

Meanwhile, high pressure will slide from the Gulf Coast States to the SE Coast Mon through Tue. Mostly clear to partly cloudy Mon night and Tue. Lows Mon night will range from the mid 20s to lower 30s. Highs on Tue will range from the mid 40s to lower 50s. Another sfc high will start to build in from the WNW Tue night.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 430 AM EST Sunday .

Another dry trof is progged across the area Tue night with the high to the south dominating through mid week. Lows Tue night in the 30s. Quasi-zonal flow develops Wed, with breezy conditions as high pressure builds across the mid-south, as deepening low exits off the New England coast. Highs Wed mid 40s- lwr 50s.

Increasing clouds Wed night ahead of an approaching trof / warm front aloft. Lows upr 20s- lwr 30s north, mid-upr 30s south. Models still a bit divided with handling of next system for late Wed/Thu . ECMWF keeps the region dry, with the GFS/CMC still producing some very light rainfall into Thu morning ahead of the trailing cool front. Will lean toward the slightly wetter solution and maintain some low PoPs early Thu with some higher cloud cover which clears out for Thu evening. Models are in better alignment for the following Fri/Fri night system, with the ECMWF/GFS now keeping our region dry, with the system now modeled well south of our area across the deep south. Will nudge PoPs down some for now, with chances no higher than 30%. Clear/sunny and cooler Sat. Highs 40-45.

AVIATION /09Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 115 AM EST Sunday .

VFR conditions expected at the TAF sites today into Mon morning, with just SCT-BKN high clouds, as a weak sfc trough slides across the area. SW winds 7-12 kt with some gusts to near 20 kt possible this aftn.

OUTLOOK . Mainly VFR conditions are expected Mon into Wed, with a weak, dry trough on Mon, followed by high pressure for Mon night into Wed.

MARINE. As of 400 AM EST Sunday .

Latest analysis reveals sfc low pressure over eastern Maine into Atlantic Canada, as high pressure builds over the west-central Gulf coast. Winds across the waters still in the 15-25kt range, as modest cold air advection continues early this morning. SCA flags flying for all but upper rivers at this time, and will purge just after sunrise for the lower James and Sound. SCA should be able to come down on time late this morning for the Bay and southern coastal waters, as conditions gradually improve with slackening pressure gradient. Seas will take some time to fall below SCA thresholds this aftn across the northern waters, with current headlines set to expire at 6pm north of Parramore Island. These may be able to be trimmed by a few hours (mid-aftn or so), based on the latest 00z/17 NWPS/WaveWatch. W-SW winds 10-15kt tonight and early Monday. Seas 2- 4 ft, waves 1-2 ft.

Another upper level system and its associated weak cold front cross the area late Monday afternoon and night, and another brief period of SCA winds possible during this time frame over the lower Bay/Sound. High pressure builds across the deep south through midweek, with winds to remain AOB 15kt, with 2-3 ft. Another cold frontal passage Tuesday night, with breezy (mainly Sub-SCA) conditions on Wednesday out of the W-NW. Winds weaken again with slackening gradient Wed night and Thu.

EQUIPMENT. As of 115 AM EST Sunday .

NWS Wakefield (KAKQ) radar has suffered a transmitter malfunction and is offline. The radar is expected to remain offline until Tuesday afternoon (01/19/2021). The Newport/Morehead City radar (KMHX) is also offline due to a scheduled generator upgrade.

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.
