AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 632 PM EST Mon Mar 1 2021

SYNOPSIS. Canadian high pressure builds in from the north through Tuesday. Low pressure tracks off the Carolina coast Wednesday. High pressure returns later in the week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM TUESDAY MORNING/. As of 630 PM EST Monday .

The cold front and assctd rain now south of the local area. Models show the high level clouds slowly pushing south into the Carolinas Tue morn. Of note is the drastic dew point drop from the lwr 50s into the 20s as the CAA sets in from the high to the north. Colder with lows upr 20s NW to mid 30s SE.

SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 400 PM EST Monday .

High pressure continues to build in from the NW Tuesday morning and then becomes centered over the area by Tuesday afternoon. Mostly sunny with highs ranging from the low to mid 40s E, to upper 40s/around 50F W Tuesday. A NNW wind of 10-15 mph with gusts to around 20 mph will linger along the coast in the morning and then diminish during the afternoon.

High pressure slides offshore Tuesday night as an upper trough trundles across the southern Appalachians. Remaining mostly clear Tuesday evening, with high clouds increasing across the south overnight. Forecast lows range from the mid/upper 20s N/NW to the lows 30s SE, although temperatures may begin to increase across the S once high clouds arrive. Surface low pressure organizes off the Southeast coast Wednesday morning and then pushes offshore Wednesday afternoon. The trend amongst the 01/12z guidance has been to keep most of the moisture S of the VA/NC border, with only chc PoPs for far srn VA and NE NC. Forecast highs range from the low 50s S, to the mid/upper 50s N. However, if there is enough sun across the NW highs could approach 60F.

The sky clears Wednesday night with low temperatures falling into the 30s. High pressure builds in from the NW Thursday with seasonal high temperatures of 50-55F under a mostly sunny sky.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 230 PM EST Monday .

Mainly dry weather for Thursday night through early next week. The only exception would be if northern stream energy digging down through the Ohio Valley late Saturday is able to interact with low pressure deepening off the Southeast coast. Then there would be the possibility of pcpn wrapping back inland into portions of SE VA and NE NC. Will keep the forecast dry for now until better model support develops. Highs through the period will be in the 40s to low 50s. Lows in the 20s and 30s.

AVIATION /00Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 630 PM EST Monday .

OUTLOOK . Low pressure moves off the Carolina Wed. Any rain with this systm stays south of the Albemarle Sound. High presure returns thru Sat.

MARINE. As of 230 PM EST Monday .

A potent cold front will sweep across the marine area through this afternoon. WSW winds 10-20 kt ahead of the front, then winds becoming WNW then NW behind the front. Brief gusts 35-40 kt will occur with the front and will handle this with short- fused Special Marine Warnings as needed.

A secondary push of CAA to arrive over the local waters tonight resulting in a strengthening of the NW winds. Wind probs and model blends remain consistent about a period strong SCA/low gales for the far nrn Ches Bay and the ocean waters off the MD/VA ern shore tonight/early Tue Elsewhere. a decent period of SCAs expected through Tue morning. Winds wane Tue afternoon/evening as sfc high pressure arrives from the west. As quickly as winds diminish/become VRB late Tue . SSW winds develop by Wed morning as the sfc high pressure moves off the coast. Low pressure passes south of the local waters Wed into Wed night.

Gale Warnings will take the place of SCAs for ANZ630 (Smith Pt to Windmill Pt) and the coastal waters north of Cape Charles by late this evening and overnight.
