AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 300 PM EDT Tue Aug 11 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure remains near the coast through Friday. A trough of low pressure developing across the area will gradually increase the chance for showers and thunderstorms each day.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING/. As of 210 PM EDT Tuesday .

Areas of convection developing now . about where the hi-res models suggested . over the Piedmont . INVOF NE NC and over interior of the lower MD ern shore. Partly cloudy through this evening w/ ISOLD-SCT tstms which may contain locally heavy downpours (poss flooding of urban/poor drainage areas) and brief gusty winds Might be ISOLD lingering SHRAs overnight. otw partly cloudy w/ poss patchy FG/ST late. Lows mainly 70-75F.

SHORT TERM /6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 300 PM EDT Tuesday .

Another day similar to Mon/today expected Wed as a sfc trough lingers back near the mountains and hi pres remains in the wrn Atlantic The day may begin w/ patchy FG/ST. then expecting SCT SHRAs/tstms to develop from midday/early afternoon and continue through the evening hours. Localized heavy rain/(flooding?) . gusty winds once again the main threat. Highs in the u80s-around 90F . except m80s at the beaches.

Trough aloft will become established INVOF OH/TN Valleys Thu-Fri. Tropical moisture will be increasing over the region leading to a high confidence for SHRAs/tstms. Given the recent overall wet wx pattern so far this month . flooding will likely become more of a concern due to PW's well above normal. Heavy rain and poss slow movement to the SHRAs/tstms will contribute to that threat Otw. mostly cloudy w/ highs Thu in the m80s then Fri in the l-m80s. Nighttime lows mainly 70-75F.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 120 PM EDT Tuesday .

The extended period will remain unsettled. A slow moving weak upper level trough from the OH/TN Valleys (Fri night) will track across the FA this weekend into early next week. Meanwhile . hi pres will sit nearly stationary over the wrn Atlantic. Models suggest plentiful moisture through much of the period and there will likely be a sfc frontal boundary sitting over the local area (dissipating Mon-Tue). Expecting rather widespread coverage of SHRAs/tstms from Fri night through the weekend w/ locally heavy rain and poss flooding. A transition to more typical Summer conditions (and mainly diurnal pcpn) likely to occur Mon- Tue Otw. VRB clouds-mostly cloudy through the period Highs Sat/Sun mainly in the l-m80s. lows mainly in the u60s-l70s. Highs Mon-Tue in the mid-upr 80s.

AVIATION /19Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 100 PM EDT Tuesday .

Other than ISOLD tstms this afternoon/early this evening and patchy FG/ST again late tonight/early Wed . VFR conditions expected through the 18Z TAF forecast period. Outside of scattered afternoon/evening tstms Wed . which could result in brief flight restrictions . mainly VFR conditions expected. There is increased confidence for higher chances of SHRAs/tstms Thu through the weekend.

MARINE. As of 245 PM EDT Tuesday .

Quiet marine conditions continue this afternoon with high pressure centered well offshore and a weak lee trough in place across inland areas. Winds are generally southerly between 5-10 knots over the Ches Bay with winds averaging 10-15 knots offshore. Waves are around 1 foot with seas offshore aob 2 ft.

A modest increase in SSE winds 10-15 knots this evening for the bay will subside back to 5-10 knots overnight. Expect a similar pattern to persist Wednesday into Thursday with some potential for mainly afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Weather becomes increasingly unsettled Friday into the weekend as a front and weak low pressure impact the region. A period of onshore/ENE winds is expected in the wake of the front with the potential for seas to build to 4-5 ft offshore from late Saturday into early next week.

EQUIPMENT. As of 120 PM EDT Tuesday .

KAKQ radar back in service. Additional maintenance is planned Wed and/or Thu (wx permitting).

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.
