AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 408 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak back door cold front will dissipate south of the area overnight. Weak high pressure will be with us early next week, before more unsettled conditions potentially return for the middle and end of next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 350 PM EDT Saturday .

Latest analysis indicating the back door cold front is located from south central VA to the Albemarle Sound. The boundary is quite weak and dew pts remain in the upper 60s/around 70 in the wake of the boundary with mid 70 dew pts lingering in NE NC. Bulk of tstms activity has been along the boundary across NE NC, where SPC mesoanalysis depicts ML CAPE on the order 2500 J/Kg and sfc-based CAPE up to 4000 J/Kg. Winds in the H7-H5 layer are only 15-25 kt W of Ches Bay where the highest instability is located through 00Z but the steep low level lapse rates have led to an isolated strong/severe storm thus far. While widespread organized storms are not likely into the evening, isolated strong/severe storms will continue with the potential for hail and brief strong winds (brief heavy downpours and lightning will be possible in any storm). Have PoPs 20% or less along the coast, to 30-50% inland (highest interior NE NC). The highest PoPs will tend to shift a little father inland over the next few hrs. PoPs decrease after sunset with only a 15-30% PoP lingering over the WSW counties until just after midnight. Otherwise, mostly clear to partly cloudy tonight with lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Patchy fog possible overnight away from the coast.

On Sunday, the mid level heights will rise slightly, while weak sfc high pressure will be centered along the coast. Expect minimal chances for any convection along the coast of SE VA and NE NC, with PoPs up to about 30-35% into the Piedmont after 18Z. A lot of the high res guidance is showing some seabreeze enhancement on the eastern shore so will also have 20-25% PoPs there. Slightly cooler most places with highs in the upper 80s/low 90s.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 350 PM EDT Saturday .

Will maintain just slight chc PoPs in the Piedmont Sun evening, then mainly dry overnight. Lows Sun night in the upper 60s to lower 70s. More of the same is in store for Mon, with a chance for sctd aftn/evening showers and tstms primarily inland/Piedmont, and lesser chances near the coast. Very warm again on Mon with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. By Tue, deeper moisture in association with sfc low pressure moving up from the S will mostly stay in the Carolinas, so PoPs on Tue will again only be 20-30% for most of the region. Highs continue mainly in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 350 PM EDT Friday .

An upper low gradually pushes ewd toward the Southeast coast Wednesday into Thursday, with the 04/12z ECMWF/CMC slightly faster than the 04/12z GFS. The general consensus is for this system to lift NNE Friday into Saturday, with the ECMWF/CMC tracking it NNE immediately off the coast, and the GFS tracking it NNE over land. Forecast PoPs Wednesday through Saturday average 20-30% NE to 30-50% SW and highest during the aftn/early evening close to the typical summer diurnal cycle. Temperatures Wednesday through Saturday are forecast to be near seasonal averages, with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s (mid 80s at the immediate coast) and lows in the upper 60s to low 70s.

AVIATION /20Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 200 PM EDT Saturday .

Mainly VFR conditions this aftn/evening, but local MVFR/IFR flight restrictions will be possible in widely scattered tstms. Patchy fog/low stratus may develop overnight, with SBY having the highest chance, but this could develop at RIC/PHF/ECG as well. Mainly VFR again Sunday, but with isolated/widely scattered tstms developing after 18Z.

Outlook: Mainly VFR conditions will continue Mon-Tue, but isolated to sctd showers/storms will be possible in the aftn into early evening that may result in brief flight restrictions.

MARINE. As of 350 PM EDT Saturday .

Winds that turned northerly this morning behind a weak front have transitioned to onshore (generally NE/ENE) 10-15 kts this afternoon. Waves in the bay are 1-2 ft with seas 2-3 ft offshore.

Quiet marine conditions are expected to prevail through the weekend with flow becoming south/southeast Sunday night. Guidance shows a few hours of 10-15 knot SSE winds in the bay and northern coastal waters Sunday night and again Monday night, otherwise winds will stay aob 10 knots with waves 1 foot and seas 2-3 ft. Increasing winds/waves/seas are forecast for the mid to late week period as low pressure off the GA/Carolina coast lifts slowly to the north and east.

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.
