AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 653 PM EDT Mon Jul 26 2021

SYNOPSIS. A weak cold front crosses most of the area tonight. The front stalls across the Carolinas on Tuesday as weak high pressure builds north of the region. A stronger cold front is expected to cross the region late in the week with high pressure building in on Saturday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 630 PM EDT Monday .

The Severe Tstm Watch has been scaled back to remove NE sections as far south as the Peninsula counties in SE VA. It remains in effect for mush of metro RIC and SE VA along and S of the James River. Given a rapid weakening trend (and a transition to mainly heavy rain), expect we will be able to cancel most or all of the remain counties prior to the 8pm end time. The Flash Flood Watch will also likely be able to be ended before the 11pm end time (probably fairly soon for the northern portions including metro RIC). Most of the current pcpn across southern/SE VA is expected to be weakening over NC by about 10pm, although there are some additional showers/tstms developing off to our N in association with the actual frontal boundary. With this in mind, will still keep chc PoPs going across the remainder of the area through 06Z/2am even the coverage will only be ~30%. Mainly dry conditions are expected after 06Z/2am except for some lingering chc PoPs in NE NC and extreme SE VA. Overnight lows fall into the mid to upper 60s far NW to the lower 70s elsewhere overnight.

The aforementioned weak front stalls/washes out across NC on Tue. With a light boundary layer flow, expect seabreeze influences that may aid in the development of aftn tstms as far N as areas along the Bay. Will keep highest chc PoPs across far southern VA and NE NC Tue aftn (30-50%), with a 15-30% chc of aftn tstms into most of E-central VA. WPC has a MRGL Risk for Excessive Rainfall across extreme southern portions of the FA on Tuesday, but that will depend on how much rain actually falls across NE NC tonight. It will remain quite humid (especially SE) with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 355 PM EDT Monday .

With NW flow aloft on Wed, the models to varying degrees have some additional chances for mainly afternoon/evening tstms despite a somewhat drier air across the region. Will maintain mainly slight chance PoPs from 18z Wed-00z Thu with highs into the lower 90s inland and upper 80s/low 90s at the coast.

Wed night/Thu looks to be a bit warmer than normal out ahead of an approaching cold front, with lows in the low-mid 70s followed by highs Thu in the lower to mid 90s with moderate levels of humidity. Dry wx is expected to prevail for most of Thursday, before shower/tstm chances increase late in the day (with the highest rain chances . which are 20-30% mainly across the north/east . holding off until Thu evening-Thu night).

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 355 PM EDT Monday .

The latter portion of this week into next weekend/early next week will continue to feature a W-NW flow aloft as an upper level ridge remains entrenched from the central/southern Plains to the intermountain west, while a series of upper troughs move ESE from north central Canada to the NE CONUS. Additional showers/tstms are possible Fri (mainly S and during the aftn/evening) as the front is slow to move south of the CWA. Mainly dry and cooler conditions are expected Sat with highs in the 80s. Another front potentially moves through late Sun/early Mon with highs in the 80s to around 90F and a chc for showers/tstms. Shower/tstm chances shift to the S on Mon with highs mainly in the 80s.

AVIATION /00Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 200 PM EDT Monday .

Scattered tstms developing across the northern portions of the VA zones, and expect the coverage to increase through the next few hrs. Have included 2-hr TEMPO groups for tstms with IFR VSBYs at RIC/PHF/ORF during the 21-01Z period (earliest at RIC/latest at ORF). Gusty winds possible in the stronger storms. Have maintained VCTS wording at ECG, with VCSH at SBY (where PoPs are only 30-40%). Showers/tstms exit from NW-SE from 00-06z, and VFR conditions return to the terminals tonight (outside of a low chc of patchy fog late). A minority of the guidance keeps isolated-scattered showers (and a few tstms) around ORF/ECG after 06z tonight. Did not reflect this potential solution in the TAFs attm.

Outlook . Mainly VFR conditions Tuesday with isolated to widely scattered showers and tstms potentially bringing brief degraded flight conditions in the afternoon and evening (mainly for ECG). The chc for afternoon and evening showers and tstms is 20% or less by Wednesday and Thursday.

MARINE. As of 255 PM EDT Monday .

Winds are expected to remain sub-SCA for the next week outside of convection. A weak pressure gradient remains over the local waters this afternoon between a cold front to the NW and a weak low off the FL/GA coastline. SW/SSW winds 10-15 kt continue into the evening before becoming SW 5-10 kt tonight through early Tues morning. A weak cold front drops south late tonight through Tues morning before become stalled/washed out near the VA/NC border. In response, winds become W Tues morning. However, due to the weak nature of the front, winds shift to SE Tues afternoon before becoming SW Tues night. Another cold front moves south over the local waters Wed morning with a shift to NW Wed morning, E early Wed afternoon, and SE late Wed. Winds remain S/SSE Thurs, potentially increasing to 10-15 kt in the southern Ches Bay and coastal waters late Thurs ahead of another cold front pushing through early Fri.

Seas of 2-3 ft and waves of 1-2 ft continue through late week. By late Thurs night, seas of 3-4 ft and waves of 2-3 ft will be briefly possible.
