AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 620 PM EST Wed Jan 22 2020

SYNOPSIS. Canadian high pressure moves over the area tonight, then slides off the coast late Thursday. Low pressure tracks across the region Friday night and Saturday morning. High pressure builds into the area for early next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THURSDAY MORNING/. As of 230 PM EST Wednesday .

Ridge axis moves overhead results in anthr clr/cold nite. Winds decouple most areas allowing for good rad cooling. Lows in the 20s except upr teens wrn Piedmont to lwr 30s sern coastal areas.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 230 PM EST Wednesday .

High pres remains overhead Thurs morning then slowly drifts ene to a position off the ne coast Thurs nite. Meanwhile, models show a trof developing along the Carolina coast ivof the Gulf stream. Moisture in the form of SC clouds develop in the aftrn due to the persistant onshore flow. Data also suggests sct shwrs creeping north along the OB. Thus, expect a pt sunny and milder day but will keep any pcpn confined to the offshore areas for now. Highs Thurs mid 40s-lwr 50s. Pt to mstly cldy Thurs nite. Lows upr 20s w-upr 30s se coastal areas.

A potent closed upper low tracks across the Miss Valley Thurs nite with moisture overspreading the area Fri aftrn ahead of this systm. Will maintain chc PoPs along/west of I95 as the retreating high keeps coastal areas dry. An in-situ wedge will likely develop over the Piedmont, with highs ranging from the mid/upper 40s over the Piedmont, 55-60 over the SE.

Models show a decent surge of GOM moisture moving north ahead of the triple point low Fri nite. In addition, incrg PW's (1 to 1.5 inches) along with decent lift results in a 3-6 hr period of stdy rainfall (mdt-lclly hvy at times in possible convective elements). QPF avgg 1/2 to 1 inch. Will carry likely to cat PoPs with pcpn tapering off late across the south and west. Temps a bit tricky as readings may rise Fri eve ahead of the trailing cold front along and east of I95, then fall back into the 40s as the low passes by to the ne.

The low tracks ne Sat. Models show a dry slot punching nne behind the low ahead of the upr level systm progged to track north of the area. Will carry chc PoPs for sct shwrs with the upr lvl systm with pcpn ending across the sw in the aftrn. Mild with highs in the 50s.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 230 PM EST Wednesday .

This period to be governed by high pressure/dry conditions. NW flow behind the departing low Sun/Mon. The high moves overhead Tue then pushes offshore Wed. This results in aoa normal temps thru the prd. Highs Sun upr 40s-lwr 50s, mid 40s-lwr 50s Mon/Tue, then upr 40s-mid 50s Wed. Lows in the 30s to near 40 se.

AVIATION /00Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 615 PM EST Wednesday .

SCT-BKN (MVFR-VFR) SC will persist INVOF far SE VA-coastal NE NC through the 00Z TAF forecast period Otw. VFR conditions w/ mainly high level clouds Winds remaining light and NNE. though speeds to 10-15 mph expected INVOF ORF/ECG. Hi pres slides off the coast Fri. Lo pres and an associated cold front will bring an increased chc of rain and degraded flight conditions Fri night into early Sat. Upper level low pressure crosses the region Sat into Sun . which should only bring passing mid-clouds/possibly ISOLD SHRAs.

MARINE. As of 310 PM EST Wednesday .

Late afternoon surface analysis shows elongated high pressure centered from the Canadian Maritimes to the Delmarva region, with low pressure now well offshore of the southeast CONUS coast. N-NE winds have diminished to 10-15 kt over the nrn Ches Bay/coastal waters. Sustained wind speeds are still 15-18 kt over the Lower Ches Bay, srn coastal waters, and Currituck Sound. Seas are 3-4 ft N, around 5 ft from Cape Charles to the VA-NC border, and ~6 ft across the NE NC coastal waters. Waves on the bay are 1-2 ft N/3 ft S. N-NE winds will average 10 kt N/15 kt S through much of the night. Anticipate that the SCA for the Currituck Sound will be able to be dropped on time (at 00z/7 PM this evening). However, seas across the srn coastal waters will be very slow to subside (remaining in the 4- 6 ft range through tonight). Thus, SCAs for the srn two coastal zones remain in effect through 21z/4 PM Thursday. The high continues to move away from the area through Thursday. Winds on Thu will range from 5-10 kt over the nrn marine zones to 10-15 kt over the srn waters. Low pressure deepens over the Plains on Thursday before moving to a position along the MO/IL border by 12z/7 AM Friday. Winds over the waters will continue to be out of the NE through Fri AM. Seas likely fall below SCA criteria north of the VA-NC border on Thu, but likely remain around 5 ft over the southernmost coastal zone through Thu (and potentially Fri AM). Will wait to see the trends in seas overnight before extending the SCA for ANZ658 (some of the guidance shows seas dropping below 5 ft by late tonight).

As the aforementioned low tracks ENE toward the Great Lakes, another area of low pressure will move NE over inland areas Friday night through Saturday morning. This will likely lead to SCAs for the bay and coastal waters late Friday night into Saturday. Winds will increase to 15-20 kt sustained out of the E Friday evening before shifting to SE at around 20 kt overnight, becoming more S with time. As the low pulls away to the north during the day Saturday winds will subside in the afternoon before becoming W and increasing to 15- 20 kt Saturday night into Sunday. High pressure moves in late Sunday and remains in place through early next week with sub-SCA conditions expected.

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.
