AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 604 PM EDT Thu Apr 9 2020

SYNOPSIS. Strong low pressure over New England and high pressure building in from the west will keep conditions windy and dry through Friday in the wake of a cold front. The high moves over the region Saturday then off the Carolina coast late Saturday afternoon. The next low pressure approaches from the west on Sunday, and moves through the local area Sunday night.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/. As of 400 PM EDT Thursday .

Windy this afternoon as the low over New England deepens and high pressure builds in from the west. The westerly flow has been very dry limiting precip as dewpoints inland were generally in the mid 30s to mid 40s. Wind will decrease some with loss of mixing though expect some breeze will persist. Lows tonight will be cool dropping into the upper 30s Piedmont and mainly 40-45F elsewhere.

SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. As of 400 PM EDT Thursday .

Dry and windy Fri as intense sfc low pressure will be off the coast of Maine with high pressure building ESE from the Tennessee Valley. A wind Advisory is in effect for the Eastern Shore where wind gusts will be strongest though winds gusting to near 40 mph across central VA are expected. Highs Fri will be cooler only ranging from the mid 50s well inland to 60F across the southeast VA and northeast NC. Dewpoints will fall into the upper to lower 20s and along with winds continuing to gust to 30-40 mph resulting in Fire Wx concerns (see Fire WX section). Winds diminish Fri night and overnight lows will be determined by how much of the area decouples. Enough wind might remain over locations near the Bay and Eastern Shore to keep things mixed some overnight. Current forecast is for lows around 32F in much of the Piedmont, mostly low to mid 30s central and interior E/SE VA, and upper 30s/lower 40s near the coast. Frost/Freeze products may be needed for early Sat morning. Temps should rebound quickly into the lower 60s Saturday with mid to upper 50s along the Eastern Shore under sunny skies. Not as cold Sat night with lows in the upper 30s to mid 40s.

The next storm system approached late Sunday and into Early Monday morning. SPC has placed southeast VA and northeast NC in an extended outlook for potential severe weather. A lot will depend upon the progression of the upper pattern and dynamics, but there is the potential for some damaging severe wind late Sunday night into early Monday morning. How far north the severe weather potential reaches is still in question.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 350 PM EDT Thursday .

Strong cold front crosses the region late Monday afternoon into the evening hours with rain chances coming to an end across the east and westerly winds behind the boundary. Drier air and cooler temps will follow the front with overnight lows Monday night falling into the mid 40s across the west and upper 40s and low 50s for areas near and east of I-95. High temps Tuesday rise into the low to mid 60s with a few locations in the upper 60s over far SE VA and NE NC.

Southwesterly flow aloft will interact with developing low pressure over the northern Gulf Coast to bring a chance for rain back to the region late Tuesday into Wednesday. Timing differences between the global spectral models preclude anything greater than chance PoPs at this time. However, northerly surface flow and increased cloud cover will keep temperatures below climatological norms on Wednesday, generally in the upper 50s and low 60s. Cooler still Wednesday night with lows falling into the upper 30s across the Piedmont with low 40s elsewhere. Will maintain PoPs aob 30% into Thursday pending better model consensus in subsequent forecasts.

AVIATION /22Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 230 PM EDT Thursday .

All sire are VFR with west to southeast winds 15 to 20 kt gusting to 30 kt. There was an area of shower passing well north of SBY and it appears most of the activity will remain north of SBY this afternoon. There is the chance for an isolated shower with the front, but airmass is rather dry. Expect winds to persist until sunset with some decrease this evening though conditions will not go calm.

Conditions become very windy once again Fri shortly after sunrise with NW winds gusting to 25-35kt (potentially even higher at KSBY). Less wind/dry Fri night and Sat. Rain chances increase for Sunday with flight restrictions possible.

MARINE. As of 415 PM EDT Thursday .

Late this aftn, a strong cold front was pushing through the waters. Winds were west to northwest 15-25 kt with gusts up to 35 kt. Waves were 1-3 ft, and seas were 2-4 ft.

Strong WNW winds will continue over the waters tonight through Fri night, as low pressure moves from New England NE into the Canadian Maritimes and high pressure builds in from the WNW. Expect wind speeds 15-30 kt with gusts to 30-40 kt over the waters, with waves 2-4 ft and seas 3-6 ft. So, SCAs remain in effect for all the waters into Fri night, with a Gale Warning in effect for the 3 nrn coastal waters from early Fri morning through Fri evening.

High pressure builds back into and over the region for later Fri night into Sat aftn, then slides off the coast Sat evening into early Sun morning. This will allow the winds to relax and seas to calm over the weekend before another system impacts the region late Sun into Mon.

FIRE WEATHER. As of 600 PM EDT Thursday .

After coord with state forest officials, issued an increased fire danger statement Fri for just about all of the CWA. Min RHs' drop to btwn 25-30 percent (highest near the water) along with gusty WNW winds 20-30 mph with gusts 35-45 mph.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. As of 400 PM EDT Thursday .

The next high tide cycle this evening and tonight will once again be the higher of the high tides and push water levels near to just below flood stage. Have issued a Coastal Flood Statement to highlight up to a half foot to one foot of inundation in vulnerable areas especially along the Bay.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
