AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 809 PM EDT Sun Jul 21 2024

SYNOPSIS
Unsettled conditions are expected through much of the coming week with scattered mainly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms each day.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM MONDAY MORNING/
As of 810 PM EDT Sunday...

Key Messages:

- The chance for showers and thunderstorms will begin to increase tonight.

A stationary frontal boundary is situated across north-central and NE NC early this evening. This weak front lifts back north overnight and brings with it an increase in PoPs from S to N.
Will limit chance PoPs (30-50%) to areas S of US-460 before 6z, with PoPs increasing to likely ~60% in south- central VA and interior NE NC after 09z. Will maintain low or no PoPs from from the Northern Neck onto the Eastern Shore overnight. Temps as of 8PM ranged from the upper 70s to lower 80s with overnight lows in the lower 70s (locally upper 60s in rural areas and mid 70s along the coast).

SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
As of 250 PM EDT Sunday...

Key Messages...

- Widespread showers and storms return Monday with potential for locally heavy rainfall and flash flooding.

Deep SW flow will allow 2+ inch PWATs surge back northward on Monday. A shortwave trough in the flow aloft will enhance lift across the area and encourage the development of a weak surface low.
Details on exactly which areas will see the greatest coverage of showers and storms are unclear but there is the potential for another round of locally heavy rainfall and associated flash flooding across the region. WPC has a marginal risk for excessive rainfall over the area both Monday and Tuesday. Deep moist profiles will tend to limit the potential for severe weather. Mostly cloudy skies prevail on Monday with high temps in the mid 80s. Showers and storms linger into the evening and near the coast after midnight with low temps in the upper 60s to low 70s.

Showers and storms expected again on Tuesday but less upper level support suggest more scattered afternoon/evening coverage. PWATs remain anomalously high, however, so localized areas of flooding will remain a possibility. High temps inch upward to around 90 degrees Tuesday afternoon. Showers and storms continue into the evening and overnight hours with lows 70-75 degrees.

For Wednesday, high chance to likely PoPs (60-75%) will be warranted as the threat for more showers and thunderstorms (some containing heavy rain and a potential of flash flooding)
continues. Highs in the 80s.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/
As of 250 PM EDT Sunday...

Key Messages:

- Unsettled period continues through the end of the work week.

- Drier air and lower precip chances possible this weekend behind a cold front.

Scattered to numerous afternoon and evening showers and storms will be possible Thursday and Friday. A weak lee trough is forecast to develop across the Piedmont which will tend to focus shower/storm development inland during the afternoon, spreading toward the coast in the evening and overnight. Deep moisture will favor partly to mostly cloudy skies through the end of the week with high temps staying in the 80s (near to just below seasonal norms). Overnight lows will continue in the upper 60s to low 70s. A cold front potentially crosses the region Saturday into Sunday which could bring lower humidity and finally shunt the deep moisture and highest precip chances to the south for the upcoming weekend.

AVIATION /00Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
As of 805 PM EDT Sunday...

A few isolated showers will continue to be possible this evening into early tonight mainly across the Piedmont and far S portions of the FA. Will note that there is some potential for a marine layer to briefly push inland across the Eastern Shore (potentially to SBY) between 8-11z with IFR CIGs and/or VIS (due to fog) possible. Otherwise, patchy overnight fog is possible across the Piedmont but should remain away from the terminals. Moisture spreads back into the region overnight from the south as a weak warm front lifts N with showers and embedded thunderstorms moving in from S to N after 6z/2AM. Showers and embedded storms will be likely at all terminals 12-18z (except SBY) Mon. Showers and storms become more scattered in coverage by the afternoon but remain possible at all terminals before tapering off after midnight from W to E. Brief reduction in VIS to IFR will be possible with any stronger showers/storms. Clouds increase in coverage as well tonight (mainly after midnight) from W to E with BKN skies from late tonight through Mon. CIGs lower to MVFR after 9z/5AM inland (excluding SBY and the Eastern Shore) and potentially to the coastal terminals. Lower confidence exists at ORF/ECG where CIGs may remain VFR (3500-4500 ft) through most of the day.

Unsettled conditions continue through Friday with daily chances of mainly aftn/evening showers/tstms.

MARINE
As of 335 PM EDT Sunday...

Key Message:

- Prevailing sub-advisory conditions are expected to continue this week, although thunderstorms are possible each day (mainly during the afternoon/evening).

Late this aftn, winds were ESE 5-10 kt across the waters. Waves were 1-2 ft and seas were 2-3 ft. Prevailing sub-SCA conditions are expected this week. Winds become S at 5-10 kt tonight. Winds then veer to the SSW and will average 10-15 kt from Mon through Thu, as the pressure gradient tightens between Bermuda high pressure offshore and weak low pressure well to our NW. A weak cold front tries to approach the waters Fri night/Sat. Despite the prevailing sub-SCA conditions, tstms will be possible each day (mainly during the aftn/evening). Brief higher gusts are likely with the convection. Waves on the bay will average 1-2 ft through Tue, and will build to 2-3 ft by Wed/Thu. Seas average 2-3 ft early this week, and increase to 3-4 ft by Tue night/Wed, as SSW winds become a bit more elevated (but still below SCA thresholds).

Moderate rip current risk remains across the northern beaches into this evening, then a low rip current risk is expected for all areas for Mon and Tue.
