AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 647 AM EST Sun Jan 19 2020

SYNOPSIS. A cold front pushes across the region this morning. Cold high pressure builds in this afternoon through Wednesday. Much colder air spills across the region tonight through the middle of the week ahead.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 645 AM EST Sunday .

Low pressure is centered east of Lake Ontario early this morning with a trailing cold front extending to the SW, east of the higher terrain of the Appalachians. Strong Canadian high pressure will build southeast from the southern Canadian prairies into the upper Midwest today.

While the surface cold front remains west of the region early this morning, all of the precipitation has been shunted to the southeast with just a few light showers remaining across NE NC. These showers will translate offshore through sunrise with only very slight chance PoPs remaining near/just north of the Albemarle Sound through mid morning. The cold front will move eastward this morning with decreasing clouds and westerly winds behind the boundary. Not much of temperature drop with the front but dew points will fall sharply through the afternoon and winds will become gusty as deeper mixing gets underway. Westerly/downsloping flow and ample sunshine will allow temps to warm into the low to mid 40s across the Piedmont and the lower 50s across the SE. A secondary front will cross the area tonight with winds becoming NW, bringing much colder air to the region. Overnight lows range from the low 20s N/W to the upper 20s SE.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. As of 345 AM EST Sunday .

Strong cold advection continues on Monday with brisk NW winds combining to result in a raw day across the region despite mostly sunny skies. Bay-streamer clouds are possible downstream (south and southeast) of the Ches bay on Monday as cold dry air interacts with the relative warmth of the waters. Temperatures will only warm into the mid to upper 30s with wind chill values staying in the upper 20s for the majority of the area. Winds decrease over land areas on Monday night but remain elevated over the water. Overnight lows range from the upper teens in the Piedmont to mid and upper 20s SE.

Cold and still somewhat breezy for Tuesday with deep upper troughing over the eastern US. Highs in the mid and upper 30s for most with wind chills below 30 degrees. Models suggest the formation of a cut- off low near the GA/SC coast Tuesday night with low temps bottoming out in the teens and low 20s once again.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 330 PM EST Saturday .

The extended period will feature mainly high pressure over the region. There will be a ridge aloft over much of the East Coast. At the surface, a Canadian high pressure will be centered over the Mid- Atlantic through the end of the week, with no chance of precip until Friday. Temperatures will being to moderate as high pressure remains over the region. Highs on Wednesday are expected to be in upper 30s to low 40s, mid 40s to near 50 on Thursday, and mid to upper 50s by Friday. Wednesday morning temperatures will be some of the coldest we have seen so far this winter for parts of the are. Lows will be in the teens west of I-95, and low 20s along and east of I-95 and Delmarva. A northeast wind will likely keep areas along the southeast VA and northeast NC coast in the upper 20s-low 30s Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. Thursday and Friday morning low temperatures will be in the upper 20s-low 30s area wide. Next chance of rain will move in late Friday/Saturday with warming temperatures. The next storm system looks to be all rain, with no signs of winter precip.

AVIATION /12Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 645 AM EST Sunday .

Leftover showers are now confined to the far SE portion of the region with only light returns showing up on radar. A few showers are moving eastward north of SBY but these should move offshore over the next hour or two and aren't expected to impact the terminal. CIGs have improved to VFR at all terminals except ECG where MVFR will continue through mid/late morning. Winds will swing to the west behind the cold front and become gusty through the afternoon. A secondary front comes through tonight with NW winds generally 10-15 knots with gusts to 20 knots near the coast.

Outlook: VFR conditions persist through Tue-Wed as cold high pressure builds back across the region.

MARINE. As of 345 AM EST Sunday .

Low pressure is tracking into nrn New England early this morning, with a cold front trailing to the SW into the central Appalachians. The wind is SW 15-25kt ahead of the front, with seas generally 4-6ft, and up to 7ft out near 20nm N of Chincoteague. The initial frontal boundary will cross the coast this morning, and the wind will shift to WNW and diminish to 12-20kt. The primary CAA then arrives late this aftn into tonight and the wind will become NW 22- 27kt with some gusts to ~30 kt for the Bay/ocean (even a few gusts to ~35kt possible off the MD coast with the initial CAA), with the wind primarily 15-20kt elsewhere. Seas subside slightly today, and then return to 4-6ft tonight, with waves in the Bay building to 3- 4ft tonight. Seas Monday range from 4-5ft N to 5-6ft S. The wind is expected to become NNW near to around 20kt for the ocean/Bay/Sound and diminish to 10-15kt for the rivers. SCAs have been extended through 7 pm Monday for the ocean/Bay/Sound, and 10 am Monday for the lower James. The York/Rappahannock remain 4 pm today through 7 am Monday and the upper James has been added for the same time period.

High pressure remains NW of the region Monday night, and another push of low-level CAA should maintain a N wind of 15-20kt, and SCAs will likely need to be extended for the Bay and ocean (for seas). High pressure builds into the region Tuesday into Wednesday, with 20/00z models showing low pressure development off the GA/SC coast. The wind will become NNE with speeds 10-15kt N to 15-20kt S, and could reach 20-25kt off the Currituck Outer Banks. This will likely maintain at least 5-6ft seas S, and could reach 6-7ft Tuesday/Tuesday night off the nrn Outer Banks. Elsewhere, seas subside to 3-4ft, with 2-3ft waves in the Bay. High pressure builds over the region Wednesday night into Thursday and slowly slides offshore Friday.

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.
