AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 301 PM EDT Thu Jul 2 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure continues to build into the region from the northwest through Friday. A weak back door cold front will cross the area on Saturday before dissipating south of the area late in the weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/. As of 245 PM EDT Thursday .

Pleasant summer day across the region as high pressure from the NW continues to build into the region. Most of the region will remain dry, with just a 10-15% chance of a stray shower or storm through early evening. Mostly clear to partly cloudy (MD eastern shore) overnight with low temps Friday morning ranging from the mid to upper 60s inland to around 70 near the coast.

SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. As of 245 PM EDT Thursday .

High pressure from the NW remains in control on Friday, with mostly dry and hot conditions expected. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 90s. A back door cold front approaching from the NE may result in a late day shower over the MD eastern shore.

The back door cold front will move through the area on Saturday. While pops are not high (25-35%), any thunderstorm that develops during the afternoon will be slow moving. In addition to the weak mid level flow, propagation vectors may oppose the weak mid level flow, which would promote an environment of backbuilding or cell mergers. WPC has much of the region from the VA piedmont/southside over to NE NC in a marginal risk for excessive rain. Due to the uncertainty of how much convective coverage there will actually be on Saturday, will hold off for now on any mention in the HWO, but will continue to monitor model trends over the next day. High temps on Saturday will range from the mid 80s over the eastern shore to lower 90s inland VA/NC.

The front will drift south of the area on Sunday and eventually dissipate, and the high over the Great Lakes will shift east. Locally, a moist E/SE flow will result in diurnal driven showers/storms Sunday afternoon/evening. High temps generally in the mid to upper 80s.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 245 PM EDT Thursday .

Early next week a low forming over the deep south will slowly drift to the E/NE. As is expected with a weakly organized low, the global models continue to struggle with how far it advances by mid week. Regardless, the presence of this low will draw deeper moisture into the region resulting in slight chance to chance pops each day Monday through Wednesday mainly during the afternoon/evening hours. Temperatures Monday through Wednesday will be around seasonal norms, with high temps ranging from the upper 80s to lower 90s and low temps ranging from the upper 60s to lower 70s.

AVIATION /19Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 115 PM EDT Thursday .

VFR through the period. Scattered CU this afternoon and early evening will give way to mostly clear skies overnight. Northerly winds under 10 kts this afternoon will become light and variable overnight into early Friday, and then becoming N/NW towards the end of the period. VFR conditions will continue through Friday and into the weekend. Scattered showers/storms this weekend may result in brief flight restrictions.

MARINE. As of 245 PM EDT Thursday .

Not much change in the forecast. Benign boating conditions are still expected today through Friday night. Winds will be variable at 10 kt or less. Waves will be 1-2 ft and seas will be 2-3 ft. High pressure will build in from the northeast as a low pressure system forms well offshore Saturday night. NE or E winds 5-15 kt will occur Saturday afternoon into Saturday night, then NE or E winds 10 kt or less Sunday morning, becoming SE by late in the day. No SCA headlines are anticipated at this time through the holiday weekend and into Monday.

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.
