AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 408 PM EST Sat Dec 7 2019

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will center itself over the local area through tonight, before sliding offshore on Sunday. Low pressure tracks across the Great Lakes region early in the week, dragging a strong cold front through the local area Tuesday night. Canadian high pressure returns for late Wednesday into Thursday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/. As of 310 PM EST Saturday .

Afternoon MSAS analysis shows 1030+ mb high pressure centered over the eastern Great Lakes this afternoon. This feature will slide east and become centered over the Northeast and mid- Atlantic tonight. The position of the high will allow for a clear sky with little or no wind, resulting in good radiational cooling away from the coast. As such, am expecting temps to fall off quickly this evening with low temperatures reaching the mid/upr 20s inland to the low/mid 30s at the coast overnight.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 310 PM EST Saturday .

High pressure will push off the New England coast by around midday Sunday with sunshine giving way to increasing clouds. Winds becoming more ESE in the afternoon will help boost max temps a touch, especially SE. Highs from the upr 40s NW to the mid 50s SE.

Models have come into better agreement with respect to a coastal trough/weak low center that will quickly develop and lift NE across the eastern Carolinas late Sunday night, then affecting eastern VA/Delmarva on Monday (especially during the morning hours). Some drier air is shown to return in the afternoon. Have adjusted the forecast to show slight chc to low chc PoPs (15-40%) across the southern half of the FA prior to 06z Monday (highest NE NC). PoPs then ramp up to high end chc (far north) to likely (south) by 12z Monday. Best chance of rain looks to be from roughly 10z-17z Monday across far eastern VA/NE NC and including the lower eastern Shore (60-90% PoPs). Will show decreasing PoPs across the W/SW during this time as drier air begins to enter the Piedmont by late morning. Some disagreement in the models for Monday afternoon as to just how much drying occurs. NAM/GFS show generally dry conditions returning, except at the coast. ECMWF lingers additional showers through the Piedmont. For that reason, will carry chc PoPs (30-50%) for much of the area after 18z Monday and some likely PoPs along the immediate coast/Eastern shore (55-65%). Mild Monday despite the clouds/pcpn occuring. However, if pcpn is slower to exit or if it's more widespread in the aftn, then could be looking at a bust potential, especially along/west of I-95. Highs from the mid/upr 50s Piedmont to the mid/upr 60s SE.

Mild Monday night with SW flow in place and considerable cloudiness ahead of next cold front crossing the OH/TN valleys. Will carry mainly slight chc to low end chc PoPs (highest north). Lows from the low/mid 50s NW to near 60 SE.

For Tuesday, the aforementioned cold front slowly advances toward the local area before crossing during the late afternoon/evening hours. Models continue to back off on the arrival time of pcpn in the warm sector ahead of the cold front, now favoring a midday or early afternoon arrival west (~18z) and a late afternoon/evening arrival east (21z Tue-03z Wed). Will favor a dry start to the day SE with no higher than 30-40% PoPs across the far NW prior to 18z. Will increase PoPs to likely across the Piedmont after 18z with slight chc PoPs spreading east into far SE VA/NE NC prior to 00Z Wed. Strong WAA ahead of the front (and even some breaks in the clouds SE) should allow temps to reach the mid/upr 60s Piedmont to low 70s SE VA & NE NC given the delayed timing of pcpn.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 345 PM EST Saturday .

The extended forecast period begins with a cold frontal passage Tuesday night with rain chances continuing into early Wednesday afternoon before drier air filters into the region. Overnight lows Tuesday will fall into the mid 30s across the northern tier of counties with low to mid 40s expected across the south. A period of rain/snow mix is still possible across the north into Wednesday morning but surface temperatures are forecast to remain above the freezing mark. 07.12Z EPS probabilities for >1" of snow continue to hover in the 10-20% range across the far north and northwest portions of the area through Wednesday morning before precip exits the area. High pressure builds in with decreasing clouds by Wednesday afternoon/evening, high temperatures in the mid 40s to low 50s. Dry air and clearing skies Wednesday night will allow temperatures to fall into the low to mid 20s NW to right around 30 degrees SE.

Models begin to diverge significantly on Thursday with the GFS bringing a shortwave trough across the region Thursday afternoon. The ECMWF and CMC are generally farther south and much slower with the shortwave. Strong (1040+mb) surface high pressure will ridge southwest into the area on Thursday with northeasterly winds keeping high temps only in the upper 30s and low 40s. Will side with the slower EC/CMC solution and keep the forecast dry on Thursday. Cold again Thursday night, low to mid 20s along and west of I-95 with upper 20s and low 30s to the east. Upper air pattern differences continue among the global models for the late week period but there is general agreement with respect to another wet period for next weekend. Will show increasing PoPs late Friday into Saturday with temperatures moderating a bit due to increased moisture/cloud cover.

AVIATION /21Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 1200 PM EST Saturday .

VFR conditions thru the 18z TAF period as high pressure prevails. NNE winds will gust 15-20 kt along the coast through mid- afternoon.

OUTLOOK . Periodic rain is expected late Sun night through Tue night, as low pressure tracks well to our NW (which will drag a strong cold front through the region). Degraded flight conditions are likely during this time period (due to both CIGs/VSBYs).

MARINE. As of 355 PM EST Saturday .

High pressure currently building in from the N and will settle off the northern mid-Atlc coast on Sunday. N to NE winds have diminished to ~10kt N and 15-20kt along the SE coast. SCA headlines have ended except over the southern VA coastal waters (through 00Z) and Currituck sound (through 00Z), while remaining through 03Z for the NC coastal waters where seas are still 5-6 ft.

Winds along with waves/seas continue to subside by later tonight as the pressure gradient relaxes. For Sunday, as the sfc high slides off the mid-Atlc coast, winds will be easterly 5-10 kts. Waves in the bay 1-2 ft and seas 2-3 ft/3-4ft NC waters.

On Monday a warm front lifts north across the area and the flow becomes southerly. Wavewatch continues to depict seas coming up rather quickly, along with some increasing SE swell. Winds will likely be close to or reach SCA thresholds along the coast Mon- Tue, with Mon a bit more uncertain for the Bay. In any event, expect waves to build to at least 2-3 ft for the Bay and seas to at least 4-6 ft Mon, with 6-8 ft possible by Mon night/early Tue (highest N). Winds shift to the NW in the wake of a cold front Tue night with SCA conditions likely through Wed. There will potentially be another stronger surge Wed night/Thu (though this is more uncertain with model differences with respect to how far south the front gets as strong sfc high pressure will be centered to our N.
