AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 940 PM EDT Wed Apr 21 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure builds across the area through Friday. Low pressure crosses the region over the weekend. High pressure returns early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 930 PM EDT Wednesday .

Had a bit of a surprise this evening as showers and even an isolated tstm developed around Hampton Roads in the wake of the sfc cold front which has now pushed south and east. This probably was caused by a mid-level impulse that's lagging behind the sfc front and helped squeeze out the last little bit of possible moisture above a shallow near sfc dry layer. This activity will weaken and move offshore through about 03z with eventual clearing overnight across SE VA and NE NC. It's already clear across the Piedmont and even up toward lower MD with CAA ongoing. This will set the stage for a colder night as winds lessen inland (remaining somewhat gusty along the immediate coast). Lows will be in the low-mid 30s north and west, upr 30s- lwr 40s SE.

Little if any frost expected tonight given a 8-10 degree temp/dew point spread along with continued mixing/light winds. Data does show that winds across the Piedmont slacken off late. This allows temps to possibly drop to around freezing for 1-2 hrs. Thus, will maintain a freeze warning for areas west of the I-95 corridor around sunrise Thursday.

SHORT TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/. As of 310 PM EDT Wednesday .

Dry, breezy/cool Thurs as strong high pres builds in from the west. Highs upr 50s-lwr 60s along with a gusty west winds at 20-30 mph. RH values drop into the 20s in the aftn.

The high builds over the area Thurs night thru Fri night. Thurs night may be as cold or a bit colder than night given lighter wind and dew points a tad higher. Thus, additional frost/freeze headlines are possible with lows in the low-mid 30s except 35-40 along the coast. Mstly sunny and warmer Fri. Highs in the mid 60s. Mstly clr to start Fri night then increasing clouds after midnite ahead of the next systm approaching from the sw. Lows in the 40s.

Low pressure approaches from the SW Sat, then tracks NE across the region Sat night. Still some timing and moisture differences in the models, but the jist is for a decent slug of moisture to overspread the area Sat aftn and cont Sat night as the low tracks across the area. Thus, PoPs quickly ramp up to likely-categorical Sat aftn and eve, then ramp down to chc-likely late Sat night. Thunder may eventually be needed across the SE, but is does appear there will be some in-situ damming across the NW. QPF arnd 1/2 inch. Cloudy with highs Sat in the 60s except near 70 se. Lows Sat night in the 50s.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 310 PM EDT Wednesday .

Low pressure deepens as it tracks ne along the New England coast Sun. Models show much drier air filtering across the local area behind this systm Sun aftn. Will carry a few lingering showers along the coast Sun morning then decreasing clouds. Highs upr 60s-lwr 70s.

High pressure builds into the area from the north Sun night/Mon then shifts off the Mid Atlantic coast Tue/Wed. This results in a warming trend with temps going above normal. Dry through Wed but models do show some increasing moisture approaching the mts by late Wed.

Cool Sun/Mon nights with lows in the 40s to near 50 se. Highs Mon 65- 70. Highs Tue mid-upr 70s west of the bay, upr 60s-lwr 70s near the water. Lows Tue night in the 50s. Highs Wed upr 70s- lwr 80s away from the water, 70-75 at the beaches

AVIATION /02Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 800 PM EDT Wednesday .

A sfc cold front has cleared the local area this evening. However, a few showers will linger near KORF through 02z as an upper impulse is slow to depart. VFR and SKC overnight with winds becoming light inland and still gusty at times along the coast. VFR Thursday and will start the day SKC. However, SCT to potentially BKN CU deck to develop in the afternoon. WNW winds will also gust 20-25 kt and up to 30 kt at KSBY.

OUTLOOK . VFR conditions Thu night thru Fri night as high pressure dominates. Low pressure will bring a showers and degraded flight conditions Sat into Sat night. High pressure returns Sunday.

MARINE. As of 200 PM EDT Wednesday .

Cold front is moving through the area this afternoon and will quickly clear the area early this evening. Winds behind the front become NW 20-30 kts with gusts around 35 kts. Best chance for longer period Gale gusts continues to be over the northern bay and northern coastal waters where a Gale warning runs through 08Z. SCA's for the remaining waters through the overnight into Thursday. Waves in the bay build to 3-5 ft, and seas build to 4-6 ft.

High pressure builds in from the west for Thursday. Westerly winds will subside to 15-20 kts with gusts of 25-30 kts. Waves in the bay 2-3 ft and seas 3-5 by late in the day. High pressure settles over the region on Friday with sub-SCA conditions expected. W/SW winds 5- 15 kts. Waves in the bay subside to 1-2 ft and seas subside to 2-3 ft.

Next system impacts the area late Saturday into Sunday which will result in another period of SCA winds/seas.

FIRE WEATHER. As of 800 PM EDT Wednesday .

Winds will be gusty at times Thursday afternoon (25-30 mph and up to 35 mph on the eastern shore) with min RH values lowering further, ranging from 20-25% inland to 25-30% toward the coast. However, there will be a couple of factors that should help mitigate fire weather concerns. The first is the potential for afternoon cloudiness and we'll also see cooler temperatures compared to Wednesday. The second is higher fuel moisture and damp soil conditions, given recent rainfall and low KBDI values. The third is greenup which is already well underway. For these reasons, do not anticipate the need for increased fire danger headlines.
