Synopsis
High pressure remains centered across the southeastern states
through today. A strong cold front crosses the area Tuesday.

High pressure builds in from the north Wednesday through Friday.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
As of 345 pm edt Monday...

isolated thunderstorms have developed across mainly the
piedmont northern tier counties this afternoon. SW flow both at
the surface and aloft has initially kept a lid on more
widespread activity, however expect more development as the
afternoon GOES on as the surface trough just west of the area
moves east. Will need to monitor to see if we need to locally
extend the severe thunderstorm watch, currently across the
northern tier, southward. However, given that the best winds
aloft remain across NRN va and md, it is unclear if a southward
extension of the watch will be needed. Otherwise, any
thunderstorm activity will move east this evening, then diminish
some after sunset. However, the cams suggest that activity will
remain for much of the night mainly across south central SE va
and have opted to increase pops to likely in this area. After a
lull in pcpn behind the leading storms this evening across the
nw, expect more widespread showers and scattered storms later
tonight to move in from the NW along the front and have brought
in categorical pops into the far NW late.

Heat index values remain above 100 at most spots this afternoon,
with 105-110 across the east. Will maintain the heat advisory
through early this evening. Luckily, this will be the last day
of dangerous heat.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through Wednesday
As of 345 pm edt Monday...

main concern for Tuesday will be the potential for heavy rain
and marginal severe across the se. The front will be slow to
move through the area, in fact it looks like it will just be
clearing the SE counties by 00z wed. In addition, a weak wave is
forecast to develop along the front which will slow it down
even more, and allow for more increased moisture convergence
along the front. With precipitable water values at or above 2
inches, combined with MLCAPE values of 1000-1500 j kg across the
se and potential training of storms along the ne-sw orientated
front, continue to think there will be the potential for heavy
rain across SE va NE nc. No flash flood watch though as the
ground should be able to handle a decent amount of rainfall
especially over swampy areas. Plus, the GFS and the ecmwf
suggest a faster fropa. Still, the href shows 30-50% prob of >3
inch 3hr so the potential for flash flooding will need to be
monitored and a short fused flash flood watch may be needed when
the details become more clear. There is also a marginal risk
for severe weather across the SE tomorrow afternoon. Wind fields
aloft increase as the upper trough digs across the eastern half
of the country, allowing a 40-50kt 500mb jet to move over the
area. This wind field combined with any afternoon heating will
be enough for a few strong to severe storms. However, the big
limiting factor will be the weak mid level lapse rates owing to
the very moist atmosphere.

The front finally clears the area Tue evening, then stalls out
just south of the area again Tue night into wed. Although we
will be on the cooler side of the front, one cannot rule out
scattered showers and isolated storms right through Wednesday,
especially since it looks like some tropical moisture will be
entrained along the front as the disturbance over the bahamas
moves north. Will need to maintain chance pops through Wednesday
across the se. Otherwise, will go with a dry forecast across
the rest of the area.

Temps will be much cooler starting tomorrow. Highs will range
from the 70s north of the front, to low-mid 80s south of the
front. Wednesday most areas will be in the 80s, but much lower
dew points in the upper 50s lower 60s.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
As of 345 pm edt Monday...

quiet and quite pleasant weather expected for the extended with
high pressure in control through the week and weekend. Will keep
with a dry forecast thu-Monday. Temps will slowly trend upwards
starting out in the mid 80s Thursday, then gradually rising to
the lower 90s Sun mon. Very seasonable for late july.

Aviation 20z Monday through Saturday
As of 200 pm edt Monday...

gusty SW winds continue at all sites this afternoon ahead of a
cold front. Showers and thunderstorms may impact ric and sby
late this afternoon into early this evening bringing brief
reduced flight conditions and gusty winds to 30-40kt. Timing
still difficult and have opted to maintain vcts for now.

Showers storms will hold off at phf orf and ecg until later this
evening into the overnight hours. The cold front approaches the
area late tonight then passes through Tuesday. Plenty of showers
with MVFR conditions developing late tonight especially at ric,
then spreading to the remaining sites on Tuesday. Reduced flight
conditions expected for much of the afternoon Tuesday at all
sites with heavy rain and thunderstorms possible at phf ecg orf.

Vfr conditions expected wed- fri.

Marine
As of 1145 am edt Monday...

moderate SW winds, 15-20 knots, across the marine zones this
afternoon as the pressure gradient tightens between high pressure
offshore and an approaching trough of low pressure. Waves in the
bay are 1-2 ft with 2-4 ft seas offshore.

Sca headlines in effect through Tuesday morning for all marine zones
except the upper james, york, and rappahannock rivers. SW winds will
increase a bit later this evening and into the overnight hours as
the prefrontal trough and associated shower and storm activity
crosses the waters. Generally, 15-20 knots with gusts to 25 knots
can be expected through sunrise Tuesday with the potential for local
enhancement to winds waves seas in and around areas of
thunderstorms. Waves will build to ~3 ft in the bay while seas range
from 3-5 S to 4-6 ft N late this evening and especially into the
overnight hours. Have extended SCA headlines across the northern
three offshore zones until 16z Tuesday as SW winds will allow
elevated seas to continue north of CAPE charles light.

A cold front will slowly drop southeastward on Tuesday bringing
additional showers storms, with winds becoming N and NW 10-15 knots
behind the boundary. High pressure builds in behind the front for
later Wednesday into Friday with NE winds 5-15 knots. An increase in
seas to 2-4 ft, especially near and south of the mouth of the ches
bay, will accompany the period of NE winds for the late week period.

Climate
No record highs were broken or tied at the 4 main cli sites
Sunday, but ecg and sby set a new record high min (both having a
low of 80) and orf tied their record high min at 80. If orf
reaches 100f today, it will be the first time since july 23-25
2010 that orf had 3 consecutive days at or above 100f. Record
