Synopsis
High pressure will quickly pass through the area today. Low
pressure will move up the east coast Wednesday, and push a cold
front offshore Wednesday night. Cooler high pressure will build
in late week and into next weekend.

Near term today
As of 640 am tue... Latest analysis shows 1022mb high pressure
centered over the mid-atlantic region, with weak cold front now
well off the coast. Front will continue to push offshore, while
high pressure extends over the area from the north today. Patchy
fog, locally dense, will persist through about sunrise, with
vsbys gradually improving thereafter. Skies will be mostly sunny
to start then will likely see some increase in mainly mid high
clouds late espcly SRN tier in advance of the next system. After
a cool start (inland temps currently in the upper 40s) temps
will warm nicely reaching 75 to 80 again most spots with
comfortable humidity.

Short term tonight
As of 225 am tue... High pressure will continue to shift off the
east coast as robust upper level system approaches from the
west and area of low pressure begins to develop across the se
us. Isentropic lift increases across the area tonight with
widespread precip developing late tonight and early wed. Main
change to previous forecast was to delay the onset of precip a
bit, based on guidance and given the dry air in place it will
take a little while to saturate. Best precip chances will be
towards sunrise Wed morning. Could see a non- diurnal temp curve
overnight with lows dropping into the upper 50s to low 60s
early, then rising a few degrees overnight into Wed morning as
warm front lifts through.

Long term Wednesday through Monday
As of 330 am Tuesday... A low pressure area and attendant cold
front will move across the area Wednesday with high pressure
building in through the rest of the week bringing a cooler and
drier airmass. The next system is expected to impact the area late
in the weekend or early next week.

Wednesday through Wednesday night... A robust upper level system
approaches from the west while a low pressure deepens as it
tracks across the carolina piedmont and offshore Wednesday.

Weak instability will develop in the warm sector with strong
shear and forcing present which could be sufficient for a few
thunderstorms to develop ahead of the cold front, however poor
lapse rates and marginal effective shear should limit the severe
potential. We could see beneficial rainfall with models
showing widespread QPF amounts around 3 4 to 1 inch. Temps
remain seasonably mild with highs in the mid 70s. Strong caa
develops behind the cold front late Wednesday and especially
Wednesday night with lows expected in the upper 40s to lower 50s
inland to mid 50s coast.

Thursday through Monday... Strong high pressure builds in from
the west Thursday and Friday bringing dry weather and a much
cooler airmass. High expected in the mid to upper 60s with lows
in the mid to upper 40s inland to low to mid 50s along the
coast. High pressure becomes centered over the area Saturday,
then migrates offshore Sunday into Monday with the next frontal
system approaching the area. There remains some timing
differences among guidance but could see precip chances
increases late Sunday, but more likely Sunday night into Monday
as SW flow aloft brings increasing gulf moisture and a warm
front lifts across the area. Temps moderate to near normal over
the weekend and a few degrees above normal Monday.

Aviation 12z Tuesday through Saturday
Short term through tonight ...

as of 640 am tue... Vsbys and CIGS improving early this morning,
though could still see ifr or lower conditions through about
12z. PredVFR conditions expected after areas of fog and stratus
lift later this morning, between 11-13z. The next system will
approach tonight, with increasing clouds and precip chances.

Sub-vfr conditions may develop late tonight and early wed
morning.

Long term Wednesday through Saturday ...

as of 4 am Tuesday... A strengthening low pressure area will lift
across the area into Wednesday with widespread sub-vfr conditions
in showers and isolated thunderstorms expected. A strong cold
front will push through Wednesday afternoon with predVFR
conditions returning and continuing through the end of the week as
strong high pressure builds in from the west. Strong south to
southwest winds expected ahead of the front and could see gusts to
around 25 kt at the terminals Wednesday with a period of gusty
northwest winds late Wednesday behind the front. High pressure
builds into the area Thursday through Saturday with predVFR
conditions expected.

Marine
Short term through tonight ...

as of 640 am tue... Latest obs show winds generally N NE 5-15 kt
with seas 2-3 ft. Weak boundary will continue to push offshore
early this morning, as high pressure builds in to the north.

Areas of fog near the albemarle sound and northern waters should
dissipate in the next hour or two. N NE winds 5-15 kt this
morning becoming E NE this afternoon as high pressure continues
to shift eastward. The next system will approach the waters
tonight, with associated warm front lifting through late tonight
into Wed morning. E flow around 10 kt early, becoming SE s
10-20 kt by early Wed morning. Seas 2-3 ft today, building to
2-4 ft overnight.

Long term Wednesday through Saturday ...

as of 4 am Tuesday... SCA conditions expected to return Wednesday
into Thursday as a low pressure system moves across the area. A
warm front will lift across the waters early Wednesday ahead of
the low with winds becoming south to southwest and increasing to
20-30 kt with higher gusts and seas building to 5-9 ft. The front
pushes through Wednesday afternoon with winds becoming northwest
around 15-25 kt late Wednesday and Wednesday night, then gradually
diminishes through the day Thursday. Seas peak Wednesday
afternoon and gradually subside through the end of the work week
as high pressure settles over the area.
