AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 136 AM EDT Tue Jul 27 2021

SYNOPSIS. A frontal boundary stalls along the Mid Atlantic coast today as weak high pressure builds in from the north. A stronger cold front crosses the region Friday with high pressure building in on Saturday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/. As of 130 AM EDT Tuesday .

Latest MSAS still shows the frontal bndry across nrn VA. Meanwhile, pcpn has pushed offshore and shifted south into NC as the upr lvl disturbance slides to the se.

Kept low chc PoPs across the se overnite. In addition, the abundant low lvl moist from all the rain will likely result in areas of stratus and/or ptchy fog towards sunrise. Lows upr 60s- lwr 70s.

PVS DSCN; The weak front stalls/washes out across NC on Tue. With a light boundary layer flow, expect seabreeze influences that may aid in the development of aftn tstms as far N as areas along the Bay. Will keep highest chc PoPs across far southern VA and NE NC Tue aftn (30-50%), with a 15-30% chc of aftn tstms into most of E-central VA. WPC has a MRGL Risk for Excessive Rainfall across extreme southern portions of the FA on Tuesday, but that will depend on how much rain actually falls across NE NC tonight. It will remain quite humid (especially SE) with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 355 PM EDT Monday .

With NW flow aloft on Wed, the models to varying degrees have some additional chances for mainly afternoon/evening tstms despite a somewhat drier air across the region. Will maintain mainly slight chance PoPs from 18z Wed-00z Thu with highs into the lower 90s inland and upper 80s/low 90s at the coast.

Wed night/Thu looks to be a bit warmer than normal out ahead of an approaching cold front, with lows in the low-mid 70s followed by highs Thu in the lower to mid 90s with moderate levels of humidity. Dry wx is expected to prevail for most of Thursday, before shower/tstm chances increase late in the day (with the highest rain chances . which are 20-30% mainly across the north/east . holding off until Thu evening-Thu night).

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 355 PM EDT Monday .

The latter portion of this week into next weekend/early next week will continue to feature a W-NW flow aloft as an upper level ridge remains entrenched from the central/southern Plains to the intermountain west, while a series of upper troughs move ESE from north central Canada to the NE CONUS. Additional showers/tstms are possible Fri (mainly S and during the aftn/evening) as the front is slow to move south of the CWA. Mainly dry and cooler conditions are expected Sat with highs in the 80s. Another front potentially moves through late Sun/early Mon with highs in the 80s to around 90F and a chc for showers/tstms. Shower/tstm chances shift to the S on Mon with highs mainly in the 80s.

AVIATION /06Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 130 AM EDT Tuesday .

Pcpn assctd with the upr lvl disturbance that moved across VA last eve has shifted south into NC. Meanwhile, a frontal bndry is draped across nrn VA. Rather quiet in-btwn these systms with mainly VFR CIGS. Although the TAF period will start off with VFR conditions, abundant low lvl moist will likely result in areas of stratus/fog dvlpng towards sunrise. Any stratus will likely be blo 1K ft, so went with a TEMPO group for later tonite.

The frontal bndry will wash out across the area Tues but leave behind bndrys (including sea-breeze) that addntl convection should fire up on aftr 18Z Tue. Still to early to include any tstm attm. Lght/Vrbl winds tonite, bcmg south inland and se blo 10 ks along the coast Tue.

Outlook . Typical summer diurnal convection psbl during the mid week period. A higher chance for convection Thu night/Fri across the N with the next cold frontal passage.

MARINE. As of 255 PM EDT Monday .

Winds are expected to remain sub-SCA for the next week outside of convection. A weak pressure gradient remains over the local waters this afternoon between a cold front to the NW and a weak low off the FL/GA coastline. SW/SSW winds 10-15 kt continue into the evening before becoming SW 5-10 kt tonight through early Tues morning. A weak cold front drops south late tonight through Tues morning before become stalled/washed out near the VA/NC border. In response, winds become W Tues morning. However, due to the weak nature of the front, winds shift to SE Tues afternoon before becoming SW Tues night. Another cold front moves south over the local waters Wed morning with a shift to NW Wed morning, E early Wed afternoon, and SE late Wed. Winds remain S/SSE Thurs, potentially increasing to 10-15 kt in the southern Ches Bay and coastal waters late Thurs ahead of another cold front pushing through early Fri.

Seas of 2-3 ft and waves of 1-2 ft continue through late week. By late Thurs night, seas of 3-4 ft and waves of 2-3 ft will be briefly possible.
