Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Blacksburg VA 658 AM EDT Sat Aug 8 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will gradually build across the region this weekend and into the first part of next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 250 AM EDT Saturday .

Fog and low clouds will erode by mid morning.

Frontal boundary will be layed up from the Tidewater, west-southwest into western NC today. As such will still see ample moisture/higher dewpoints in place and threat for pop up storms. Convective allowing models showing a shotgun type setup with widely scattered convection, but trying to concentrate most along the southern Blue Ridge and a second area close to the front in the piedmont of NC/VA. Still given how things developed Friday, not really seeing a high enough confidence in the models to have pops higher than 50.

Upper heights build somewhat as do temps, so also not seeing as much upper support for organized convection.

Dewpoints in the lower 70s out east will make for an uncomfortably humid day outside, though with high temps in the upper 80s/near 90, heat indices will be in the mid 90s.

This evening convection lessens with loss of heating, but as with the past few evenings, will likely see storms linger til around midnight, mainly east of the foothills.

Low temperatures will be typical of August with most in the 60s, except around 70 in the piedmont.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. As of 330 AM EDT Saturday .

Relatively dry and hot start to the short term period as high pressure settles overhead. A good dose of subsidence for a change should suppress storm chances below 20 to 30 percent with the best coverage on the hilltops of the Blue Ridge, North Carolina Foothills, and the Allegheny Front. Sunday's highs will reach into the low to mid 90s east of the Blue Ridge with mid to upper 80s out west. We may even squeak out some relief at night as with lows out west of I-81 falling into the 50s for some thanks to high pressure.

By Monday another upper level trough pushing down from the Great Lakes returns to the area. The trough accompanied by several pieces of shortwave energy will spark daily chances for afternoon and evening storms. The National Blend along with the GFS and Euro continue to point to an increase in coverage on Tuesday afternoon and beyond into the midweek period.

Highs early next week still look to remain at or above average which is typical for early August. Areas east of the Blue Ridge will be back in the upper 80s and low 90s while those out west hang out in the low to mid 80s.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 200 PM EDT Friday .

High pressure remains draped over the southern U.S. through the forecast period. Some far reaching forcing combined with SW flow from the high will help pull in a very warm airmass for Wednesday with summertime like diurnal convection.

Guidance points to a mid-level disturbance that sets up shop over the southern Ohio/Tennessee Valley Thursday into Friday that will slowly traverse across the region until being picked up by a new trough next weekend. While influence from this system will be far, it should be able to work with the warm, saturated airmass that will be in place by this point to help increase the overall drive in diurnal showers and thunderstorms each afternoon. In turn, the increased convection and clouds from this will help drive our temperatures down slightly for the remainder of the work week.

AVIATION /12Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 655 AM EDT Saturday .

Patchy to areas of fog across the area, especially the mountains this morning will be lifting/eroding 14-15z, then VFR. Storms today will be widely scattered with best chances south of BCB/ROA, and east of LYH/DAN. Added VCTS at LYH/DAN but overall VFR.

IFR or lower fog and/or low clouds are possible again late tonight where it rains, and in the river valleys, LWB/BCB.

Above average confidence for wind and ceilings after 15z Sat. Average confidence for visibility with fog and cigs this morning.

Extended Aviation Discussion .

High pressure provides lesser chances of storms into Sunday. Pattern should be more typical of summer into Monday with scattered afternoon/evening storms. Overall VFR outside storms and late night valley fog.

Low pressure will bring a better threat of storms and MVFR conditions Tuesday and Wednesday.

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.
