AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 202 PM EST Sun Jan 26 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure dissipates over the region tonight. A weak disturbance tracks across North Carolina Monday before high pressure builds in again for mid week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 200 PM EST Sunday .

BKN clouds remain over N-E portions this afternoon . otw and seasonable day and partly/mostly sunny. Trough aloft remains INVOF the FA (clipping N-E portions) through tonight . will keep VRB clouds/partly cloudy conditions those areas. Elsewhere . mainly SKC this evening before clouds begin to arrive from the WSW ahead of the next weak system approaching from TN Valley. Lows from around 30F far N and NW to the l-m30s elsewhere.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 200 PM EST Sunday .

In zonal flow aloft . a weak mid/upper level system will track across NC Mon resulting in increasing clouds (mainly srn VA-NE NC) and a 20-30% PoP (-RA) - mainly late morning through the afternoon Model QPF remains light. on the order of just a few hundredths of an inch Otw. partly sunny N. Highs mainly from the u40s-l50s.

Rain chcs end Mon evening as the system exits the coast. Drier and slightly cooler wx follows Mon night-Tue as sfc hi pres builds in from the Midwest. Low Mon night in the u20s WNW to m30s along coastal SE VA-NE NC. Highs Tue ranging from the m40s N and NE to around 50F over NE NC.

The next weak system will track across the gulf states Tue night-Wed (a bit S of the 1st one Mon). Will keep PoPs BLO 10% and bring increasing clouds (by late Wed). Lows Tue night in the u20s-around 30F inland to the l-m30s in far SE VA-NE NC.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 320 PM EST Saturday .

A weak shortwave will move through the southern portion of the CWA late Monday night into early Tuesday bringing with it a slight chance of a few scattered rain showers Monday afternoon. High pressure moves in Tuesday and persists through Wednesday evening. Another shortwave moves through on Thursday possibly spinning up a weak coastal low off the SE coast well offshore. Models have come into more agreement that any low pressure forming will be too far offshore to provide any widespread precipitation for the CWA. Have therefore lowered PoPs to <25%. High pressure once again moves into the region Friday and will persist until early Saturday. Next weekend becomes a little more interesting with both the GFS and EURO developing a coastal low off of the Carolina coastline and bringing it up the NE coast Saturday into Sunday. However, we will be lacking any substantially cold air and therefore rain is the most likely precipitation type.

Temperatures will be near seasonal through the period. Lows Tuesday-Thursday nights will range from the mid-upper 20s in the NW to the low-mid 30s in the SE. Lows on Friday and Saturday nights will be slightly warmer with low 30s in the NW and upper 30s to around 40F in the SE. Highs will be in the 40s on Wednesday and will range from the mid-40s in the NW to lower 50s in the SE on Thursday-Saturday.

AVIATION /19Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 1230 PM EST Sunday .

Clouds are persisting over the VA peninsula and the Ern Shore with clear skies elsewhere. The cloud deck does appear to be retreating temporarily and should move SE of SBY around 19z before another cloud deck moves in due to a weak surface trough moving through early this evening (around 23z). However, even underneath the cloud deck ceilings are VFR at around 5500 ft at SBY so no flight restrictions are expected. Cloud cover will increase Monday morning in SE terminals (ECG/ORF/PHF) due to a shortwave moving south of the region. However, any precipitation should hold off until after 18z Monday with only a slight chance of a few light, isolated showers at PHF possible between 12-18z. However, even this chance is too low to reflect in the TAF at this time. Otherwise, VFR conditions are expected to continue at all terminals through the 18z TAF period. Winds are currently W/WNW primarily at 5-10 kt with a few stronger gusts at RIC to 10-15 kt and will become light and variable at <5 kt overnight before increasing to 5-10 kt by Monday morning at all terminals.

A weak shortwave moves through during the day Monday with a slight chance of a few showers and flight restrictions due to ceilings mainly for ORF/ECG. High pressure moves in Tuesday through Thursday with VFR conditions expected.

MARINE. As of 650 AM EST Sunday .

Seas have been ~4 ft at buoy 44100 and 44099 for the past few hrs so have dropped SCAs for the coastal waters S of cape Charles light w/ this update (only remaining SCAs are for the coastal waters N of Cape Charles where seas are 4-5 ft).

Low pressure is currently centered well N of the local area across Ontario and the St Lawrence Valley with sfc high pressure over the Gulf coast ridging NE into the Carolinas. W winds 5-10 kt prevail early this morning with waves in the Bay 1-2 ft and seas 3-5 ft on the coastal waters in 10-11 sec period E swell. SCA headlines will remain in effect for the northern zones through 1 pm as seas slowly subside.

Low pressure to our N gradually shifts to the E and moves off to Atlantic Canada Mon/Mon night, forcing a dry cold front through the region Monday night/early Tuesday. Guidance remains in decent agreement showing decent CAA behind the boundary and current forecast is for marginal SCA conditions for the Bay (to 15-20 kts) through late Tuesday morning before the gradient slackens heading into the mid week period. SCAs may be needed for the Bay and it could be close on the coastal waters as well (primarily for seas building back to 4-5 ft).

CLIMATE. Due to a tipping bucket error at SBY ASOS yesterday, precipitation for Sat 1/25 was substituted with data from the RAWS site at Powellville (1.03").

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.
