AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 221 AM EST Wed Dec 11 2019

SYNOPSIS. High pressure builds into the area today and tonight. Low pressure develops along the Gulf Coast Friday, then tracks northeast along the eastern seaboard over the upcoming weekend.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/. As of 215 AM EDT Wednesday .

Latest MSAS has the cold front offshore with ana-frontal liquid pcpn continuing across the area. The next svrl hrs (09Z-15Z) will be more of a nowcast with the forecast based off the current trends/sfc obs. So only minor tweeks made to the ongoing gridded forecast since any winter pcpn still west of the fa. Will likely make changes on the fly thru 12Z.

Upshot . still looking at a rain/wet snow mix or brief change over to wet snow across the nrn half of the fa btwn 09Z-15Z this morning. As stated yesterday, pcpn intensity will likely determine the outcome as both sfc temps/wet bulb temps remain above 32. Only temp concern will be during any heavier pcpn bursts where temps may drop to near 32. Maintained accumls of one half inch or less mainly on grassy/elevated sfcs with the highest ivof LKU. High res data even suggests places like the middle Peninsula (PHF) and ern shore (MVF) may see a brief mix before the pcpn ends.

Expect a quick end to the pcpn arnd 12Z ivof the I95 corridor to arnd 15Z ern shore/sern coastal areas based on latest high res data.

All pcpn is offshore by 17Z with decreasing clouds west to east. CAA overspreads the area from the high to the west. Cold despite the aftrn sunshine. Highs 40-45.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/. As of 215 AM EST Wednesday .

Clear/cold tonite as the center of the 1040 mb high tracks ene ivof the Mason-Dixon line. A secondary CAA surge will keep the winds up over the waters and right along the coast, but expect decoupling west of the bay. Lows in the 20s to around 30 se.

The high slowly pushes off to the ne Thurs. Cold despite ample sunshine although some aftrn SC will apprch the coast due to the persistant ne flow. Highs from the upr 30s nw to mid 40s se.

The high pushes off the New England coast Thurs nite. Moisture from the dvlpng systm to the ssw increases along a sfc trof ivof the mts while addntl moisture is noted along a Carolina coastal trof. Dry air in the lwr levels should keep it dry thru 12Z Fri with the exception of some rain creeping up from ern NC. Will increase the cloud coverage in the grids but keep it dry as the models show ridging east of the mts across the rgn. Lows in the upr 20s NW to lwr 40s SE but will likely steady out or rise a bit towards sunrise as the clouds come in.

The ridging slowly breaks down Fri with WAA moisture overspreading the area from the ssw throughout the day. The deepest moisture will come up from the sw during the aftrn. Thus, will have chc morning PoPs becoming likely during the aftrn. Depending on how fast the pcpn comes in, low lvl thicknesses suggest a possible brief period of fz rain across nwrn most (climo favored) zones at the onset. Highs from arnd 40 over the wrn most zones due to the insitu-wedge ranging to near 60 across the nrn OB.

Widespread rain Fri nite (cat PoPs) as low pressure tracks ne along the Mid Atlantic coastal plain. Lows upr 30s NW to lwr 50s SE.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 215 AM EST Wednesday .

Low pressure tracks northeast Saturday and into interior New England and Quebec, giving the area a dry northwest flow for Sunday. pcpn Sat morning, tapers off in the aftrn as trailing cold front pushes east. Highs Sat range from near 50 NW to lwr 60s SE. Lows Sat nite upr 30s nw to mid 40s SE. dry Sun with highs in the low-mid 50s.

Dry conditions will continue into Monday as a cold area of high pressure moves southeast across the Great Lakes Sunday night into Monday morning. High pressure will be centered over the area Monday with high temperatures on Monday in the mid 40s and lows Monday night in the low 30s. Models are indicating that another area of low pressure will develop in the northern Gulf of Mexico and track into the Mid-Atlantic Tuesday, bringing the next chance of rain, and possibly wintry precip for the onset of precip.

AVIATION /07Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 1250 AM EST Wednesday .

The cold front is pushing off the coast this morning with abundant post-frontal rain falling behind it. IFR CIGS/VSBYS in both rain/fog will continue past 12Z. Enuf cold air filters into the area so that both RIC/SBY will likely mix with or change to wet snow for a few hrs (10Z-14Z). PHF may even see a brief mix arnd 12Z. Some IP may mix in as well at times.

High pressure quickly builds east after 15Z pushing all the pcpn offshore by 18Z. Quick column drying results in CIGS quickly lift to VFR btwn 15Z-18Z with only SCT clouds along the coast by late in the day. Gusty north winds (15-25 kts) this morning diminish to 10 kts or less after 18Z.

OUTLOOK . VFR conditions cont thru Thurs nite as high pressure tracks nne of the area. The next systm brings rain and degraded flight conditions Friday through Saturday.

MARINE. As of 220 PM EST Tuesday .

Cold front will slowly cross the waters through this evening shifting winds from WSW to NW. Speeds avgg 10-20 kt prefrontal then some decrease w/ and shortly behind the front. Low level CAA kicks in by late this evening . through the overnight and Wed morning before waning Due to the CAA. speeds to increase to 15-25 kt . w/ 30 kt possible(for a brief period) over the lower Ches Bay and the ocean. Winds diminish Wed afternoon. A second surge of low level CAA expected Wed night (that does appear to be a bit weaker than the first one tonight) before sfc hi pres finally builds over the local waters. That sfc hi pres drifts off to the NE Thu-Thu night. Lo pres begins to develop INVOF Gulf of Mexico Fri then tracks NNE near the mid-Atlantic coast by Sat morning which may result in increased winds and deteriorating wx conditions over the waters heading into the weekend.

SCAs will be up for all of the waters except parts of the VA Rivers (though even those areas may have a brief period of near SCA conditions - winds gusting to 20 kt). SCAs to come down during Wed for the Ches Bay . sound and lower James River then will likely be needed again Wed night/early Thu. For the ocean .
