AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 957 PM EDT Mon Jun 1 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure slides off the Carolina coast tonight into Tuesday. A warm front lifts north of the area Tuesday night. High pressure becomes anchored well off the southeast coast Wednesday through Friday, bringing summerlike conditions to the local area. A cold front pushes through the region on Saturday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM TUESDAY MORNING/. As of 955 PM EDT Monday .

Current analysis indicates ~1024mb sfc high pressure now centered across the Outer Banks. The wind this evening is calm to a very light southerly breeze. Mostly clear this evening with some thin cirrus streaming across the region. Very pleasant as temperatures range from the mid 50s to low 60s, with dewpoints in the 40s to low 50s.

Mainly clear overnight with occasional bands of thin cirrus, but then clouds increase late as the next shortwave aloft (currently located over the western Great Lakes), dives SE and rapidly slides into the local area in the NW flow aloft. Both the 12Z/01 NAM and GFS show that BKN mid level clouds are likely to reach into the western/NW portions of the CWA by around sunrise Tuesday. Temperatures will tend to drop off quickly late this evening through the early overnight hours under dry conditions, a mostly clear sky, and a calm to light wind, and then will become nearly steady or only fall a few degrees more as the sfc high becomes centered off the SE coast and a return SW flow develops. Lows will range through the low/mid 50s CWA-wide (a few upper 40s possible in the interior of southern VA and the Piedmont).

SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 350 PM EDT Monday .

Models in good agreement that sfc low pressure continues to track E across the Great Lakes region Tuesday with a warm front extending ESE to near the Delmarva by aftn/evening. In addition, models show a s/w trof developing along this bndry near SBY-OXB. Will maintain late morning/aftn 20% PoPs over the northern/NE portions of the CWA. Elsewhere, mainly just looking at a period of mostly cloudy skies during the mid morning through early aftn hrs, with skies turning partly sunny thereafter as winds increase from the W/SW. Highs will range from the 70s on the eastern shore to the lower to mid 80s across much of VA W of the Bay and in NE NC.

This system pushes into New England Tues night allowing the frontal bndry to move back nne as a warm front. Models depict some forcing w/ a shortwave aloft clipping the eastern shore during the evening so will have PoPs to ~30% there Tue evening and 20% Pops to eastern/SE VA. Partly to mostly cloudy with lows 65-70 F.

The high becomes well off the SE coast near Bermuda Wed with the front well north of the local area. WSW winds along with plenty of sunshine and H85 temps btwn 18C-20C results in summer- like heat across the region. Data shows a capped airmass, so kept it dry with widespread highs 90-95F west of the Ches Bay and upper 80s to lower 90s near the coast and on the eastern shore. Given dew points in the mid- upr 60s, heat index values will only be a few degrees above the air temp (mid 90s), so no heat issues expected. Latest model runs now show the Bermuda ridge strong enough to keep the next front (and assctd convection) north of the local area Wed night, but have a ~20% PoP for the eastern shore given that storms in this pattern tend to drift a bit S of the model projections. Warm and humid with lows upr 60s- lwr 70s.

Next bndry approaches from the NW Thurs, but appears a dry morning will allow for another summer-like day before any convection moves ESE of the Appalachians after 18Z. Chc aftn PoPs west of the bay, slight chc along the coast, rising to likely in the northern Piedmont and chance most other places late aftn and early evening. Highs upr 80s- lwr 90s except mid to upper 80s near the water.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 350 PM EDT Sunday .

Medium range period looks to be dominated by a strong upper low over eastern Canada and an upper ridge over the Desert SW. The latest 12Z/01 GFS/ECMWF continue to show the potential for the remnant of Tropical Cyclone Amanda (from the Pacific), and now TD 3 in the Atlantic basin into the Gulf of Mexico/bay of Campeche w/ weak upr troughing noted (see latest forecasts from NHC for details). Locally, we look to be in a W flow aloft Thu night-Fri night, then NW flow by Sat/Sun as the consensus is for a cold front to push through by Sat night. Overall, looks like very warm and somewhat humid conditions will prevail with highs in the mid/upper 80s to around 90F Fri-Sat. Lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s. At least scattered showers/tstms are expected each day (primarily during the aftn/evening where gridded forecast has the PoPs a little higher). Sunday look dry in the wake of the front, with lower humidity and lows in the 60s with highs in the upper 70s to lower-mid 80s. Lows Sun night in the 50s to lower 60s with highs Mon in the upper 70s coast to lower 80s inland.

AVIATION /02Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 740 PM EDT Monday .

High pressure is centered along the VA/NC coast as of 00z. The sky is mostly clear with a few thin bands of cirrus. The wind is light and generally SW inland and SE along the coast. High pressure will gradually slide offshore overnight, with the sky remaining mostly clear with only a few high clouds. The wind will become SW at all sites with speeds less than 10kt. A trough aloft will slide across the region Tuesday bringing at least BKN cloud cover for a period of time. Cigs will remain VFR and generally 8-10kft for most sites, and potentially 5-8kft for SBY. There is a slight chc (~20%) of showers at SBY Tuesday. A SW wind of 10-15kt is expected, with occasional gusts to ~20kt from ORF to ECG.

VFR conditions are expected to prevail through the remainder of the week. A chc of showers will linger at SBY Tuesday evening, then mainly dry conditions prevail overnight Tuesday through Wednesday. There is a slight chc of a tstm at SBY Wednesday evening. There is an increased chc of aftn/evening tstms Thursday/Friday, and then again Saturday ahead of a cold front. Any showers/tstms have the potential to produce brief flight restrictions, primarily limited vsby in heavy rain.

MARINE. As of 350 PM EDT Monday .

Late this aftn, high pressure centered over the srn waters is resulting in variable (mainly onshore) winds aob 10 kt in most locations (10-15 kt over the MD coastal waters). Seas are around 3 ft from Cape Henry northward, with 4-4.5 ft seas across the NE NC coastal waters (ANZ658). Waves on the Ches Bay are 1-2 ft. The high is progged to move SSE of the waters to a position just off the SE NC coast by late tonight. This will allow the winds to turn to the SW and increase to 15 kt over most of the bay/ocean by early Tue AM (10-12 kt S of Cape Henry). Could see a gust or two to 20 kt at elevated locations in the middle Ches Bay. Seas will average 3-4 ft over much of the ocean tonight (highest 20 nm offshore). Conditions will remain sub-SCA through the day on Tuesday, although a few gusts to 20 kt are possible on the rivers during the aftn due to increased mixing over adjacent land areas. Will likely see a brief uptick in SW winds Tue evening-Tue night as a weak sfc trough crosses the region. Wind gusts are expected to be just above SCA criteria over the Lower Bay, Lower James River, Currituck Sound, and srn coastal waters from 03-09z Wed. Sustained winds are forecast to be 17-22 kt during this time period (highest over the srn coastal waters). Local wind probabilities are pointing toward the potential for SCAs late Tue evening-Tue night. Will hold off on any headlines for now, given that it looks to be a 4th period event and will let later shifts refine timing/placement of potential SCAs. Winds diminish below SCA thresholds by the middle of Wednesday morning and will generally be from the SW at 10-15 kt from Wed-Thurs.

CLIMATE. Most locations have not yet reached 90F this year. The current forecast has most of the CWA reaching at least 90F on Wed (June 3rd). In most years, 90F is reached by the end of May and for comparison purposes, these dates are listed below, with record highs also included:

* Average Date of 1st 90F Day/% of Yrs 1st 90F Day after June 3:

* RIC: May 13th / 20 of 123 (16%) had 1st 90F after June 3rd * ORF: May 16th / 36 of 146 (25%) had 1st 90F after June 3rd * SBY: May 27th / 37 of 114 (32%) had 1st 90F after June 3rd * ECG: May 18th / 17 of 86 (20%) had 1st 90F after June 3rd

* Record Highs Wed 6/3:

* RIC: 98 (1936) * ORF: 99 (1895) * SBY: 95 (1925) * ECG: 98 (1943)
