AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 359 PM EDT Sun Aug 9 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak surface boundary lingering just south of the forecast area this afternoon will provide the chance for a few showers/storms through early evening before becoming diffuse tonight. High pressure settles over the area tonight. A trough forms to our west by the middle part of this week with scattered diurnal thunderstorms become more prevalent in the later part of the week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM MONDAY MORNING/. As of 340 PM EDT Sunday .

Latest analysis shows a stalled rather weak frontal boundary aligned W to E over NC (south of the CWA). The boundary is less pronounced than yesterday and with a minimal pressure gradient over the region, there will be less of a trigger for showers/tstms later today. Showers/storms have formed in the western piedmont as well as SE VA/NE NC. Will have PoPs of 30-50% over the SE and S piedmont, with only 15-25% chances elsewhere. The steering flow will remain light today but precipitable water values are lower than yesterday (generally ~1.50 to 1.75" over the SE, and 1.00 to 1.50" farther to the N and W. Will still have the potential for localized flooding especially in urban and poor drainage areas, but the threat is lower than yesterday. Temps are generally in the upper 80s to around 90F well inland. Any convection should diminish rather quickly this evening, with partly cloudy skies overnight. Patchy fog and low stratus will again be possible after 06Z tonight into tomorrow morning but with less coverage than what was seen this morning. Lows tonight in the upper 60s NW to the lower 70s SE.

SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 340 PM EDT Sunday .

Highs in the low 90s Monday. There is only a slight chance of storms generally in SE VA/NE NC, but most will remain dry (generally 15-30% PoPs). Lows Monday night will range from the upper 60s NW to the low 70s SE.

Tuesday will be more of the same with highs in the low 90s. A shortwave moves south of the region, increasing PoPs to 35-50% in the afternoon (mainly for SE VA/NE NC). Any convection should end by early evening. Lows Tuesday night will be in the upper 60s NW and in the low 70s elsewhere.

A weak shortwave passes to the north on Wednesday. Diurnal showers/storms will again be possible Wednesday afternoon/early evening (30-40% PoPs). Highs in the low 90s and lows generally in the low 70s.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 340 PM EDT Sunday .

The medium range period begins Wed night with a typical upper level ridge centered well off the SE coast and an upper trough to the E of Hudson Bay Canada. The models differ with respect to how progressive that upper trough is while moving to the SE Thu-Sat. The 12Z/09 GFS is quite a bit more progressive with the upper trough pushing off to Atlantic Canada Fri and then well offshore on Sat. This keeps the upper ridge along the Carolina/SE coast and would make it difficult for a front to sag S into the local area through the weekend. The ECMWF and GEM show more of a potential for a blocking pattern and a sfc front stalling over the local area Fri-Sat and possibly even into Sunday. Will be following a blended solution at this point which will incorporate an unsettled pattern with above climo PoPs through the period, but not to the extent of the operational ECMWF/GEM just yet. Highs Thu will be in the upper 80s/around 90F with increasing PoPs by aftn as the front slowly approaches from the N. Beyond that, with the increasing uncertainty as to how far S the front gets, have a fairly broad- brushed high chance PoP (~50%) Fri-Sun with some low end likely PoPs Fri W of I-95. Highs Fri-Sun will be mainly in the mid to upper 80s with lows primarily between 70-75F with some upper 60s possible in the Piedmont through the period. If the ECMWF/GEM solutions verify, highs will likely be a bit cooler especially over the N.

AVIATION /20Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 205 PM EDT Sunday .

Mainly VFR conditions expected to prevail this afternoon and early evening. Widely scattered convection will increase in coverage this afternoon and early evening, which may result in brief flight restrictions. The greatest chance for showers/storms will be at ECG/PHF with a lower chance elsewhere. Will only mention in TAF for these two terminals at this time due to lower confidence in coverage elsewhere. Lower ceilings/visbys due to scattered areas of fog will be possible again late tonight into Monday morning (beginning around 06Z Monday), however coverage shouldn't be as widespread as it was today. Flight restrictions will be possible for any areas with fog. Outside of convection, winds are NE 5-10 KT at PHF/ORF and light and variable elsewhere. Winds will remain primarily light and variable through the 18Z TAF.

Outlook . Mostly VFR conditions expected through mid week outside of scattered afternoon/evening storms which could result in brief flight restrictions.

MARINE. As of 320 PM EDT Sunday .

Broad surface high pressure remains in control of the eastern CONUS weather. Winds are easterly across the southern half of the area waters with some S and SE winds north of Cape Charles. ESE winds of 10-15 knots are noted across the southern Ches Bay and lower James River. Will show elevated winds 10-15 knots across the western Ches Bay and rivers into this evening before decreasing back into the 5- 10 knot range tonight. Similar conditions are expected through mid week with SE flow increasing modestly by late morning into the evening hours. Waves/seas average 1 foot and 2 ft, respectively.

Uncertainty increases later in the week with the potential for more organized low pressure to affect the region with associated increases in winds/waves/seas.

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.
