AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 938 PM EST Sun Mar 3 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will move off to the northeast overnight. An area of low pressure will move up along the coast and across the region later Monday into Tuesday morning. Another area of low pressure will track over the region Wednesday into Thursday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/
As of 935 PM EST Sunday...

Late this evening, sfc high pressure was right over the area or centered NNE of the region. Also, sfc low pressure was located just off the coastal Carolinas. FEW to SCT SC or SCT/BKN CI well in advance of the low, were affecting the CWA Temps ranged from the upper 40s to mid 50s. Clouds will be increasing from SSE to NNW overnight into Mon morning, as the low starts to lift nwrd.
Fog and/or stratus will be developing offshore, and likely move inland overnight into Mon morning also. Lows tonight will be in the mid to upper 40s.

The low is still expected to track due north over eastern NC, then coastal VA and MD, late Mon into Tue morning. High temps on Mon will be warmest across south-central and central VA, where cloud cover will be thinner with highs in the mid to upper 60s. Lower to mid 60s are forecast to the east of I-95 with mid 50s to lower 60s along the immediate coast with cool onshore flow. Pops will increase Mon morning into Mon night from SSE to NNW. The highest PoPs occur Mon evening into the overnight hours. Highest QPF from this system will be focused along the coast with storm totals ranging from 0.25-0.5" for the Piedmont, 0.5-0.75" for the I-95 corridor, and 0.75-1" to the east.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/
As of 400 PM EST Sunday...

PoPs decrease from SW to NE Tue morning with lingering slight chance PoPs across the MD Eastern Shore through the afternoon.
Breaks in the clouds are likely during the afternoon with highs in the upper 60s S and SW, mid 60s along the I-64 corridor and upper 50s to low 60s expected north and east. Should be mostly dry Tuesday night but moisture increases again ahead of the next area of low pressure approaching from the SW. Lows overnight will be similar to Monday night, generally in the upper 40s to low 50s from N to S.

The next storm system will approach the area from the SW and likely be a little stronger than Monday night's storm system.
Most likely time for the rain to move in will be late Wednesday afternoon and continue into Thursday morning as the low pressure tracks over the region. Pops have been increased to around 80%.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
As of 100 PM EST Sunday...

Another area of low pressure approaches from the SW on Wednesday, crossing the area Wednesday night. Models have come in to slightly better agreement with respect to timing of the low, but are still differing on the track with the GFS taking the low further inland, closer to the mountains, while the ECMWF and Canadian keep the low closer to the coast. The further inland track of the GFS would bring warmer air into the region, while the coastal solutions keep temperatures cooler. Due to the model disagreement, continued using the blended model approach (NBM).
The highest rain chances will likely be during the Wednesday afternoon-night timeframe across the region. It should be noted that if the low tracks closer to the GFS solution, we will have the potential to see thunder chances spread further north compared to the current forecast which has thunder confined across far S VA and NC.

High pressure briefly returns late in the work week before another low pressure system likely approaches the region next weekend.
Temperatures trend slightly cooler later in the week, but will generally remain in the 50s and 60s during the day with lows in the upper 30s to 40s.

AVIATION /03Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
As of 730 PM EST Sunday...

FEW or SCT SC or SCT to BKN CI was streaming across the area this evening. Fog and/or stratus is expected to develop over the Atlc Ocean and move inland overnight, affect mainly SBY, PHF and ORF. Also, there could be MVFR CIGs that could move in or develop over the ern TAF sites. Otherwise, high clouds will be spreading in from the south ahead of a coastal low. Conditions will begin to deteriorate early Mon morning for NE NC, then conditions will be deteriorating to MVFR then IFR over the remainder of the region from later Mon morning into Mon evening, as rain spreads in ahead of the low.

Outlook: Lower CIGs /VSBYS will affect the area Mon night into Tue morning. Mainly VFR conditions will return for Tue aftn into early Wed morning, before more rain and lower CIGs /VSBYs are expected for Wed into Thu morning.

MARINE
As of 815 PM EST Sunday...

Winds remain fairly light this evening with a weak pressure gradient in place over the region. SCAs continue for the coastal waters as latest buoy obs show seas of 4-5 ft. A trough of low pressure is starting to develop just off the NC/SC coast, and this will slowly deepen overnight through Monday while lifting N into the local waters. Meanwhile, strong sfc high pressure (>1030mb) will become centered from the coast of Maine to Atlantic Canada by Monday afternoon/evening. This pattern often over-performs with respect to model winds and it seems as if the 18Z runs are catching up now w/ increasing winds. The latest wind probs have jumped up quite a bit with respect to the chc for 18 kt sustained and 25 kt gusts to the lower Bay and Currituck sound by Monday afternoon so with this in mins, have added SCAs for the lower Bay and the Currituck sound for Mon afternoon/evening.

Early tomorrow morning, winds will be 10-15 kt S of Cape Charles Light and 5-10 kt N. Winds continue to increase to 15-20kt in the coastal waters, the sound, and the lower Bay by afternoon (and to 10-15kt elsewhere in the bay and rivers). Will wait for the ))Z model runs, but would not be surprised if SCAs will also be needed for the Bay N of New Pt Comfort and perhaps even the lower James for Mon evening. ENE winds will be strongest in the northern coastal waters ahead of the low late Mon evening at ~20-25 kt with gusts to 30 kt. Given the increased onshore winds, expect seas will climb back to 5-7 ft.
The low is expected to pass over local waters early Tuesday morning. As the low passes, winds drop back to 10-15kt and shift to the WNW, then further relax to 5-10kt by Tuesday evening.
SCAs will likely have to be extended through Tuesday evening for the ocean to cover lingering 5ft seas. May see a brief period of benign conditions Tues night-Wed morning before another low pressure system impacts the region Wed afternoon through Thursday night. This one is generally stronger and SCAs will likely be needed for all of the waters, with a chc for seeing Gales over the coastal waters.
