AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 336 PM EST Sat Jan 18 2020

SYNOPSIS. Strong high pressure centered to the north, will slide offshore this afternoon. A weak warm warm front will lift across the area today, with a cold front will push across the region late tonight into Sunday morning. Cold high pressure builds back in for Sunday afternoon through Wednesday, with markedly colder air spilling across the region through the middle of the week ahead.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/. As of 215 PM EST Saturday .

Latest analysis reveals Strong 1030+mb sfc high pressure centered over eastern Quebec and ridging S/SE just offshore of the northeast/Mid-Atlantic coast. Weak low pressure was analyzed over the DelMarVa early this afternoon, with regional radar mosaic showing some light mixed precipitation moving across the northern third of the area this aftn. Meanwhile to the nw, low pressure over the Midwest continues to lift E-NE across the upper Great Lakes, with a trailing cold front sliding across the Ohio/Tennessee River Valley. Its associated weak warm front continues to lift across the mid-south into the Carolinas this aftn.

Have had quite a few reports of mixed precipitation late this morning and early thus aftn over northern third of the area in association with initial slug of overrunning precipitation, which makes sense given dry antecedent airmass in low levels and overrunning moisture in weak WAA. Weak forcing and meager PWs resulting in a brief lull in precipitation now for most of the local area, as we await uptick in forcing and best shot of overrunning moisture. Could have a few spits of drizzle over the next few hours, but largely just overcast. Bulk of rainfall still expected to push E-NE across the region from late afternoon through early evening, reaching Hampton Roads and NE NC this evening into the overnight, before pushing offshore by morning. Likely to categorical PoPs remain in place during this period QPF remains on the light side. on the order of a tenth to a quarter of an inch through the night.

South-southwest winds increase and become gusty as the warm front lifts across the region late this afternoon into the overnight . as the pressure gradient tightens ahead of the cold front, which should cross the region in the pre-dawn hours Sunday morning. Lows will likely be achieved early in the evening, with steady to rising temperatures (except far NW, where piedmont should fall off late tonight post-frontal). Lows in the mid to upper 30s west of KRIC . mid to upper 40s elsewhere, with some low 50s possible far SE zones.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 215 PM EST Saturday .

Gusty west winds in the wake of the cold frontal passage on Sunday. Downslope flow will keep temps from falling too far behind the front with highs in the mid 40s to mid 50s. Secondary front crosses the area Sunday night, ushering in strong CAA on NW winds for Sunday night. Early morning low temps ranging from the low 20s NW to low 30s SE.

Strong, cool high pressure of Canadian origin will bring noticeably colder temperatures on Monday. Highs in the mid 30s expected across the north, with highs struggling to breach the 40 degree mark across SE VA and NE NC. Strong NW winds will gust 15-20mph inland and 20-25mph near the coast/eastern shore, resulting in wind chills in the upper 20s and low 30s for much of the area. Winds decrease inland by evening but remain elevated over the water through the overnight. Very cold Monday night with temps ranging from the mid-upper teens across the Piedmont to mid 20s over the SE.

Continued cold and dry on Tuesday, with highs remaining below normal . mainly in the mid to upper 30s Tuesday despite mainly clear/sunny sky.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT 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 /21Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 220 PM EST Saturday .

MVFR/VFR conditions will deteriorate to solid MVFR conditions late this afternoon and this evening, with brief periods of IFR possible along coastal terminals this evening. Light/variable S-SE winds this aftn become S/SW late this afternoon, and will become gusty this evening as the gradient tightens ahead of an approaching cold front.

BKN/OVC high clouds over the region will gradually lower into MVFR range over terminals as rain spreads from west to east 21-02Z. CIGs lower to MVFR late afternoon/early evening at RIC and SBY, a few hours later at PHF, ORF, and ECG. Brief period of IFR CIGs possible at SBY and PHF after 01Z ahead of the frontal passage late this evening. Cold front crosses the area late tonight/Sun morning, with any lingering pcpn ending from NW to SE after 06-08z.

Outlook: VFR conditions return by or just after sunrise Sunday for all terminals, and should persist through Tue-Wed as cold high pressure builds back across the region.

MARINE. As of 330 PM EST Saturday .

Late afternoon surface analysis shows high pressure now offshore of the waters, with ~999mb low pressure centered over Michigan. Winds are generally out of the S-SSE at 10kt S/15-20kt N, with a few gusts of 25kt over the nrn Ches Bay/nrn coastal waters. Seas are mainly 3- 4ft, but are still ~4.5 ft at Buoy 44100 off the NE NC coast. The wind is generally ENE 5-10kt, with seas of 3-4ft for most of the coastal Atlantic, and 4-5ft off the Currituck Outer Banks. The aforementioned area of low pressure will track across the ern Great Lakes tonight and across New England Sunday. This will produce strong pressure falls (5-6mb/3hr) and southerly winds will increase to 15-25kt by early evening (highest over the nrn Ches Bay/coastal waters off MD). Winds then veer to the SW tonight, but remain 15- 25kt through early Sun AM before diminishing a few knots by sunrise. Seas are forecast to be 3-5ft S tonight, while building to 4-6ft N. Waves on the Ches Bay are expected to range from 2-4ft. The wind will then become WNW 15-20kt on Sunday. Went ahead and extended all SCA flags for the bay, srn coastal waters, Lower James River, and Currituck Sound through 12z/7 AM Monday (rather than having a break in the headlines until the expected increase in winds Sun evening- Sun night). Also extended the SCAs for the nrn three coastal zones through 12z/7 AM Monday. Conditions will be marginal for SCAs on Sun, but fairly confident that there will be at least a few hours worth of low-end SCA gusts during the day across the bay/srn coastal waters/Currituck Sound. Seas will be 3-4ft S/4-5ft N during the day on Sun. Could still see seas of 5ft S/6ft N closer to 20 nm offshore.

Still expecting the strongest winds to occur Sunday night, as a cold front crosses the coast with a fairly decent surge of low-level CAA (from the NW). Solid SCAs are likely Sunday night across the bay/ocean (22-27kt sustained winds w/ gusts of ~30kt). Could even see a brief period of 35kt gusts across the far nrn coastal waters (local wind gust probabilities are starting to latch onto this). SCAs have been issued for the Rappahannock/York Rivers from 21z Sunday-12z Monday for 15-20kt NW winds w/ gusts to 25kt. May need to add an SCA for the Upper James Sun evening-Sun night, but not confident enough to do it attm. Winds diminish to 15-20kt during the midday/aftn hours on Monday. A secondary surge of CAA arrives Monday night into early Tuesday morning with a 15-20kt N-NNW wind. High pressure builds into the region Tuesday into Wednesday while low pressure develops well off the GA/FL coast. Any significant marine impacts from this low will likely remain to the S of the local waters. The wind will gradually veer from NNW to NNE on Tue/Wed with speeds of ~15kt N to 15-20kt S. Seas are expected to average 4-5ft Monday-Tuesday, and could build to 6ft S as the wind becomes more northerly. Waves in the Ches Bay are forecast to reach 3-4ft Sunday night and Monday night during the periods of strongest CAA. Given the current forecast, will likely need to extend the SCAs for at least parts of the bay/ocean through early next week. Tranquil marine conditions are expected to return Thursday/Thursday night as high pressure finally settles near the area.
