AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 958 PM EST Fri Feb 21 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure builds in from the west overnight and will linger through the weekend. The next system will impact the area early next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/. As of 935 PM EST Friday .

Late this evening, sfc high pressure was centered over KY and TN. Clear sky with winds 10 kt or less was prevailing across the area, with temps ranging from the lower 20s to the lower 30s.

Clear and cold tonight, as high pressure settles overhead. Lows will range from the mid to upper teens in the coldest spots, to the lower to mid 20s near the coast. Will need to monitor any areas of remaining snowfall/melt water for the potential for black ice formation overnight. Will likely handle this threat with Special Weather Statements for the affected areas.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 320 PM EST Friday .

High pressure will set up shop over the area this weekend leading to clear skies and moderating temperatures. Highs on Saturday will climb back to seasonable levels, ranging from the upper 40s to the low and mid 50s. Winds will swing around to the southwest by the afternoon hours and low level moisture will increase a bit over the single digit dew points we are seeing today. Not quite as cold Saturday night, lows in the mid and upper 20s inland to the low 30s at the coast. Temperatures moderate further on Sunday with continued mostly clear skies and no chance for rain. Highs in the mid to upper 50s to perhaps low 60s in a few spots. Overnight lows range from the mid 30s to low 40s on Sunday night.

Low pressure develops and moves eastward across the OK/TX Monday morning as high pressure over the local area migrates offshore. Will show increasing chances for rain through the day on Monday with areas generally west of I-95 having the relative greatest chance of seeing precip before sunset. Highs on Monday will continue in the 50s with increasing southerly flow ahead of the area of low pressure.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 320 PM EST Friday .

Low pressure tracks NE through the Ohio Valley Monday night into Tuesday. The cold front associated with the low will result in scattered rain showers with PoPs increasing to 70-80% by early Tuesday. This system will be followed by a second area of low pressure developing Wednesday/Thursday along a deep trough moving into the region. This second low will track inland along the Appalachian Mountains Wednesday into early Thursday, bringing with it another chance of rain for the CWA. High pressure moves in Thursday and Friday.

Low temps Mon night will range from the low 40s in the NW to the upper 40s in the SE. Low temps Tues night will range from the low 40s in the NW to the low 50s in the SE. Low temps Wed night will range from the mid 30s in the NW to the low 40s in the SE. Low temps on Thurs night will range from the mid-20s in the NW and low 30s in the SE. Low temps on Fri night will be the coldest ranging from the low 20s in the NW to the low 30s in the SE. High temps Tues and Wed will range from the upper 50s in the N to the low-mid 60s elsewhere. High temps on Thurs will range from the upper 40s in the NW to the mid-50s in the SE. High temps on Fri will range from the low-mid 40s in the NW to the upper 40s in the SE.

AVIATION /03Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 715 PM EST Friday .

High pressure will build into and over the area for this evening into Sat evening, providing VFR conditions at the TAF sites and mainly SKC. NNE winds 5-10 kt near the coast this evening, will become light NNW overnight. Winds will turn to the W then SW 5-10 kt during Sat.

OUTLOOK . High pressure will slide off the coast during Sun with VFR conditions and SSW winds 5-10 kt continuing. Rain showers and possible flight restrictions will be possible later Mon aftn through Tue aftn, as a warm front followed by a cold front affects the region.

MARINE. As of 945 PM EST Friday .

High pressure will be in control for the weekend, and winds are now diminishing rapidly across the marine area. N/NW winds are now 10-15 kt or less except over the southern coastal waters where 15-20kt with gusts to 25 kt will continue for a few more hours. Seas have dropped off to ~4 ft N of Parramore island so have expired the SCA early in that region. SCA's now remain in place only for the coastal waters S of Parramore Island, overnight into Sat AM (except lingering into the aftn for the NC waters). The high surf advisory for the Currituck Outer Banks has been allowed to expire w/ nearshore waves now 6-7 ft.

Winds on Saturday become westerly 10-15 kts as the high shifts to our south by late in the day. Sunday the high will shift to our east and the flow becomes southerly 5-10 kts by late in the day. Waves in the bay 1-2 ft on Saturday and around 1 ft on Sunday. Seas will remain elevated and slow to subside on Saturday 2-4 ft north and 3-5 ft south. Calmer seas expected Sunday with 2-3 ft north and 2-4 ft south.

Low pressure approaches from the west and is projected to pass north of the area Monday night into Tuesday trailing a weakening cold front. Sub-SCA conditions expected with S/SW winds increasing slightly to 10-15 kts. Waves in the bay 1-2 ft and seas 2-4 ft.

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.
