AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 1012 PM EST Mon Jan 27 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak disturbance moves off the North Carolina coast overnight. High pressure builds in for Tuesday and Wednesday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM TUESDAY MORNING/. As of 900 PM EST Monday .

Latest MSAS has a BKN cloud deck assctd with a trof across nrn zones (where the winds turn to the NNW behind it). Meanwhile, a second trof is moving across NC with its pcpn shield as far north as the Albemarle Sound. Latest high res data keeps most if not all the pcpn along the Sound and points south. Thus, trimmed back PoPs to the zones bordering the Albemarle Sound over the next few hrs. Models show both systms moving ese thru the overnite hrs. Expect decreasing clouds nw to se late. The clouds have kept temps up a bit this eve, but expect them to drop off with the prtl clrg that takes place overnite. Lows by 12Z from the u20s nw to upr 30s se.

SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 205 PM EST Monday .

Continued resemblance of a trough aloft from New England extending down into the mid-Atlantic states Tue into Wed while the next storm system takes shape INVOF srn Plains (Tue) then tracks E across the gulf states to the SE CONUS coast (Wed into Thu).

A little bit of low level CAA on Tue thus it will be a cooler than today/past couple of days. Sunny to partly cloudy w/ highs from the m-u40s NE to the l50s SW. Sfc hi pres from ern Canada will extend S into the local area Wed-Thu and lo pres tracks by (well) to the S. Will keep PoPs AOB BLO 10% Wed-Thu w/ conditions no worse than partly cloudy. Lows Tue night from the m-u20s N and W to the l30s along coast SE VA-NE NC. Highs Wed mainly 45-50F. Lows Wed night in the l-m20s N to the m20s-around 30F S. Highs Thu in the m-u40s . except l50s over coastal NE NC.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 140 PM EST Monday .

Weak sfc hi pres will be over the region Thu night-Fri while a trough remains offshore. Models continuing to try and hone in a potential storm for Fri night-Sat. 12Z/27 GFS and ECMWF are about as close together as they have been over the past few days w/ lo pres tracking from the SE states to off the (lower) mid- Atlantic coast Cold air will continue to be lacking. so p-type appears to be mostly RA. Highest PoPs (capped 40-50% for now) will be across the S and E Fri night into Sat morning. Upper level trough trailing behind is expected to cross the region Sat night-Sun resulting in VRB clouds and possible SCT SHRAs. Another warmup is expected early next week.

Lows Thu night from the m-u20s along-W of I 95 to the 30s at the coast. Highs Fri mainly 45-50F. Lows Fri night from the l-m30s inland to around 40F along the immediate coast in SE VA-NE NC. Highs Sat mainly in the m-u40s. Lows Sat night in the l-m30s inland to the u30s-around 40F at the coast. Highs Sun in the l50s . except u40s on the ern shore. Highs Mon in the m50s on the ern shore . u50s-around 60F elsewhere.

AVIATION /03Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 620 PM EST Monday .

SCT-BKN mid level clouds this eve as a weak area of low pressure tracks across NC as well as a weak sfc trof drifting se across the Delmarva. Radar wise, the bulk of the pcpn is progged to track ese across NC this eve with ECG being on the northern fringes of the pcpn shield. Thus, added VCSH at ECG for the next few hrs. Otw, clouds sct out after midnite as both weak systms shift east. Winds become NNW behind the departing systms blo 10 kts.

OUTLOOK . Weak low pres passes south of the region Wed night and Thu . though VFR conditions are expected to continue.

MARINE. As of 1010 PM EST Monday .

Weak cold front has dropped south of the area late this evening with N winds becoming NW and increasing to 15-20 knots after midnight. SCA headlines will be in effect for the Ches bay, lower James River, and Currituck Sound. Conditions continue to look too marginal for headlines in the York and Rappahannock Rivers where winds will average 10-15 knots. Winds offshore will be similar to those expected in the Ches bay, 15-20 knots sustained with gusts up to 25 knots. Given the higher thresholds over the coastal waters and the relatively short duration, opted not to raise any headlines for the offshore zones. Seas will slowly build to 3-4 ft tonight in NW/offshore flow with the relative best chance for seas to exceed 5ft across the southern coastal waters, especially out near 20 nmi Tuesday morning into the early afternoon. An additional surge of CAA is expected Tuesday night when winds are forecast to increase to around 15 knots in the bay and 15-20 knots offshore. Northerly flow continues on Wednesday but decreases to around 10 knots in the afternoon.

Models continue to struggle with the strength, placement, and even the potential for any appreciable storm during the late week/weekend period.

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.
