AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 1010 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak back door cold front will dissipate south of the area overnight. Weak high pressure will be with us early next week, before more unsettled conditions potentially return for the middle and end of next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 945 PM EDT Saturday .

Convection has waned across the local area this evening. However, there are still a few showers/tstms along and E of the Blue Ridge, and some of this could clip the Ern VA Piedmont, so a 20% PoP will be maintained through 06z. Otherwise, a subtle backdoor cold front is located over the Piedmont, with light SE flow and more stable conditions to the E of the boundary. Temperatures this evening range from the mid 70s to low 80s under a partly cloudy to mostly clear sky. Seasonably mild and humid tonight with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. Some patchy fog is possible later tonight into very early Sunday morning, but it is not expected to become dense. Some low stratus is also possible over the Piedmont in vicinity of the front.

On Sunday, the mid level heights will rise slightly, while weak sfc high pressure will be centered along the coast. Expect minimal chances for any convection along the coast of SE VA and NE NC, with PoPs up to about 30-35% into the Piedmont after 18Z. A lot of the high res guidance is showing some seabreeze enhancement on the eastern shore so will also have 20-25% PoPs there. Slightly cooler most places with highs in the upper 80s/low 90s.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 350 PM EDT Saturday .

Will maintain just slight chc PoPs in the Piedmont Sun evening, then mainly dry overnight. Lows Sun night in the upper 60s to lower 70s. More of the same is in store for Mon, with a chance for sctd aftn/evening showers and tstms primarily inland/Piedmont, and lesser chances near the coast. Very warm again on Mon with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. By Tue, deeper moisture in association with sfc low pressure moving up from the S will mostly stay in the Carolinas, so PoPs on Tue will again only be 20-30% for most of the region. Highs continue mainly in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 350 PM EDT Friday .

An upper low gradually pushes ewd toward the Southeast coast Wednesday into Thursday, with the 04/12z ECMWF/CMC slightly faster than the 04/12z GFS. The general consensus is for this system to lift NNE Friday into Saturday, with the ECMWF/CMC tracking it NNE immediately off the coast, and the GFS tracking it NNE over land. Forecast PoPs Wednesday through Saturday average 20-30% NE to 30-50% SW and highest during the aftn/early evening close to the typical summer diurnal cycle. Temperatures Wednesday through Saturday are forecast to be near seasonal averages, with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s (mid 80s at the immediate coast) and lows in the upper 60s to low 70s.

AVIATION /02Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 755 PM EDT Saturday .

The current surface analysis places weak high pressure along the coast. A weak boundary has pushed onshore and is now W of all the TAF sites, and any showers/tstms are located along and W of this boundary. Mostly clear through the early overnight hours with a light ESE wind (NE at ECG), with the potential for some patchy fog/low stratus later tonight as the wind becomes calm and weak surface high pressure settles over the region. Primarily MVFR conditions are expected (VFR at this time for ECG). However, PHF could experience brief IFR conditions with shallow ground from from about 08-11z. Becoming VFR Sunday morning, with a light S to SE wind of 5-8kt. There is a 20% chc of aftn showers/tstms, mainly at RIC and SBY.

Mainly VFR Monday through Wednesday with a 20-30% chc of aftn/early evening showers/tstms. At this time there is a somewhat increased chc of showers/tstms Thursday as low pressure is forecast to become located in vicinity of the Carolinas.

MARINE. As of 350 PM EDT Saturday .

Winds that turned northerly this morning behind a weak front have transitioned to onshore (generally NE/ENE) 10-15 kts this afternoon. Waves in the bay are 1-2 ft with seas 2-3 ft offshore.

Quiet marine conditions are expected to prevail through the weekend with flow becoming south/southeast Sunday night. Guidance shows a few hours of 10-15 knot SSE winds in the bay and northern coastal waters Sunday night and again Monday night, otherwise winds will stay aob 10 knots with waves 1 foot and seas 2-3 ft. Increasing winds/waves/seas are forecast for the mid to late week period as low pressure off the GA/Carolina coast lifts slowly to the north and east.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. As of 1000 PM EDT Saturday .

Issued a Coastal Flood Statement for Dorchester County (mainly for Bishop's Head . as it is expected to crest around minor flood thresholds during high tide early Sun AM). Trended the forecast for Lewisetta up to just below minor flood thresholds, but will not issue a statement attm.

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.
