AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 717 PM EDT Sat Jul 11 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak frontal boundary will linger over the region this evening before dissipating along the coast overnight. Hot and humid conditions are expected to continue through much of next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/. As of 715 PM EDT Saturday .

A weak surface trough is touching off some widely scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms over the MD eastern shore this evening. Additional widely scattered showers/storms may sneak into NE NC or far SE VA. This activity should diminish later this evening. Overnight, mostly clear to partly cloudy. Low temps range from the mid 60s to lower 70s.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 250 PM EDT Saturday .

Broad mid/upper troughing persists over the eastern U.S. Sunday, as strong (600+ dm at h5!) upper ridging will continue across the desert southwest. The local area will be in between shortwaves on Sunday, with a dampening shortwave (pre-frontal) trough pushing north of the area later Sunday/Sunday night. This will likely result in another hot and mostly sunny/dry day across the region. Will maintain a slight chance PoP across the northwestern third of the area (west of the Bay) after 4 pm Sun aftn into Sunday night, in association with the trough, with another slight chance area along and north of the Albemarle Sound in association with some isolated sea-breeze induced late day showers and storms Sunday aftn. Highs on Sunday will be in the low to mid 90s.

Weak sfc cold front will approach the area from the west late Sunday night and Monday, but with weak forcing, expect any convection will slow/weaken as it loses its forward momentum. That said, CAMs do show potential for a narrow line of showers/storms pushing into the area tomorrow evening, again with convection again likely to weaken before reaching I-95 corridor. Will maintain a chance PoP in the west, tapering to slight chance I-95 corridor.

There will likely be a lull in the precip late Sunday night into the day on Monday as the weak front slowly crosses the area. High temperatures will be in the low 90s Monday afternoon. Expect weakening front will again be the focus for isolated to widely scattered convection as it pushes across Hampton Roads/eastern shore/NE NC Monday aftn. Pops are accordingly around 30-50% (mainly east of I-95) for Monday afternoon into Monday night. Low temperatures Tuesday morning will range from the mid 60s across the Piedmont to mid 70s near the coast.

Front will be along or just off the coast Tuesday, with precipitation being even more spotty in nature given warming aloft and lower PW values. No airmass change post-frontal, with deeper mixing allowing for an even warmer afternoon Tuesday. Highs in the low to mid 90s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 355 PM EDT Saturday .

Typical mid-July conditions will prevail across the area during the extended period. Very warm or hot conditions expected Wed through Sat. Rather humid Wed and Thu, and very humid conditions Fri and Sat. Sfc high pressure will be centered off the Mid Atlc coast through the period, providing an E or SE flow on Wed, SE or S flow on Thu, then S or SW flow on Fri and Sat. Only a slight chance of mainly aftn/early evening showers/tstms Wed and Thu, and mainly inland/Piedmont. Better aftn/evening chances (PoPs 20-40%) for Fri and Sat, due to the combination of increased low level moisture and shortwave energy moving through the region.

High temps will generally range from the upper 80s to lower 90s, some mid 90s likely in some places. Lows will range from the upper 60s to mid 70s through the period. Heat indices will be the highest on Fri and Sat, between 100 to 105 degrees.

AVIATION /23Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 715 PM EDT Saturday .

Mainly VFR through the period. Slight chance of an isolated shower/storm at SBY/ECG tonight, otherwise clear to partly cloudy overnight. SW winds 5-10 kts tonight become light and variable overnight. S/SW winds 5-10 kts on Sunday. Slight chance of precip late in the period at ECG but will keep any mention of precip out of the TAF at this time.

OUTLOOK . Mainly VFR conditions continue into the beginning of the week, with just scattered late day convection possible each day which may result in brief flight restrictions.

MARINE. As of 320 PM EDT Saturday .

A coastal trough is moving east over the waters this afternoon and will continue to move slowly east tonight. A weak frontal boundary associated with the trough will move through this evening. As a result, SSW winds 10-15kt for the Bay/rivers/Sound and around 15 kt for the ocean will become W after midnight in the Ches Bay/ northern coastal waters before becoming NW and light (~5 kt) overnight. High pressure develops near/over the waters tomorrow with light and variable winds before moving offshore and will be replaced by SSE winds 10 to 15 kts late tomorrow afternoon/evening. Winds become SSW tomorrow night through Monday. Models continue to show a cold front pushing through across the coast Monday night into early Tuesday. The wind shifts to NW behind this front with sub-SCA conditions expected at this time. High pressure then builds into the area later Tuesday into Wednesday.

Seas are expected to range from 2-4 ft S to 3-4 ft N this afternoon, becoming 3-4 ft everywhere tonight through Monday. Seas will then decrease to 2-3 ft for the southern coastal waters while remaining 3- 4 ft over the northern coastal waters on Monday night. Waves 1-2 ft in the Ches Bay.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
