Low pressure dropping into eastern nc will bring increasing sw winds Friday before easing into Saturday, as the low moves in vicinity of the waters. An advisory may be needed Friday due to gusty sw winds. The front will stall near the coast Sunday into early next week, resulting in scattered tstms, but manageable winds outside of tstms.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 1212 PM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will track north of the region later today and tonight. The trailing cold front will cross the area early Friday, then stall across the Carolinas over the weekend. Low pressure moves east along the front Sunday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. As of 1210 PM EDT Thursday .

Sfc boundary that was draped from the ern shore NW to central MD earlier this morning heading back N as a warm front. Most of the FA now in the warm sector and generally mostly sunny. The concern this afternoon . esp late . will be convective development from wrn PA/WV that is expected to moves ESE INVOF of that warm front . to across primarily nrn VA and eventually portions of the Delmarva Right now. ISOLD convection firing up on the MD ern shore (just N of FA). Models are showing conflicting ideas for when/how much convection affects the FA. Meso/hi res guidance continues to suggest the action starts later rather than earlier this afternoon and continues through this evening SPC has N and NE portions in SLGT risk. w/ MRGL S to about I 64. While an ISOLD stm is psbl across srn VA/NE NC . highest PoPs/potentially most widespread coverage is expected over nrn 1/3rd of the local area (after 19-21Z). Will react to the developing stms when necessary Otw. sunny to partly cloudy w/ SSW winds aob 10 mph and highs in the l90s . except u80s on the ern shore.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 1210 PM EDT Thursday . Tstms continue this eve as the MCV pushes east (highest PoPs ne). Lingering moisture along the trailing cold front keeps the threat of a few shwrs going aftr midnite. Still warm/muggy with lows 70-75.

The cold front pushes south into NC Fri. Models show anthr round of convection dvlpng along ivof this boundary during the aftrn. Thus, will carry chc PoPs across nern NC with a buffer zone of slght chc PoPs across srn Va. Appears the svr threat Fri will be south of the Albemarle Sound. Otwm Mstly sunny north and pt sunny south. Highs upr 80s-lwr 90s.

Any lingering convections diminishes across ne NC Fri eve as the front sags south to near the NC/SC border. Wind shift to the north actually brings in CAA along with much lwr dew point temps. Mstly clr north/pt cldy south. Cooler with lows in the 60s to near 70 se.

The front remains nearly stationary Sat across the Carolinas with high pressure building into the area from the nw. Sat will be the pick of the weekend under pt to mstly sunny skies and much lwr humidity levels. Highs in the lwr 80s except upr 70s to near 80 near the water.

Models show low pressure developing along the stalled frontal boundary Sat nite then riding east along it Sun. Moisture rapidly increases late Sat nite with shwrs oversreading the area from the sw after midnite. Lows in the 60s to near 70 se. Sun looks unsettled with cldy skies/likely PoPs. Highs 80-85, coolest along the coast.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 330 AM EDT Thursday .

Unsettled conditions cont thru mid week. Models show anthr frontal boundary stalling along the coast with enuf moisture each day to keep chc PoPs going (highest along the coast). Below normal temps with highs in the low-mid 80s. Lows in the 60s to near 70 se.

AVIATION /16Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 630 AM EDT Thursday .

Expect any low level ST to burn off over the next few hrs. Otw, VFR conditions thru most of the forecast period. Will be watching a convective complex plow its way ese across the nrn states later today and tonite. Most likely area to see any convection from this systm will be at SBY after 21Z (where VCTS was added for a few hrs arnd 00Z). SSW winds below 10 kts.

Outlook . Sct convection conts into early Fri as the trailing cold front crosses the area. Additional convection likely Sun as low pressure tracks across the Carolinas.

MARINE. As of 405 AM EDT Thursday .

Early this morning, winds were mainly SE 5-10 kt over the waters, with the exception of the NE NC coastal waters where winds were NW 5-10 kt. Winds will become S today, and increase up to 15 kt this aftn. Ahead of a cold front Thu night, SSW winds 10-20 kt, will become WSW 10-15 kt. The period to watch for possible SCAs will be post cold front late Fri night into Sat morning, as NNE winds average 15-20 kt. High pressure slides into/across the local waters Sat into Sat evening, then offshore Sun, resulting in lowering winds becoming S.

Seas 2-3 ft this morning, will build to 3-4 ft by this evening into tonight, while waves 1-2 ft will build to 2-3 ft. Seas/waves will again build to 3-4 ft/2-3 ft late Fri night into Sat morning, due to the increased NNE winds.
