AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 359 AM EST Tue Jan 28 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure over the upper midwest builds east through Thursday as low pressure moves across the Gulf coast region. Another low pressure system lifts northeast along the coast late Friday into Saturday before moving off to the north of the local area into Sunday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 330 AM EST Tuesday .

Latest analysis indicates weak/broad sfc high pressure over the upper midwest, with sfc low pressure over Atlantic Canada. Aloft, a trough extends SSW from Atlantic Canada to eastern NC and this has been keeping a lot of clouds across the local area so far (models not doing a good job at picking up on this). Thus, have increased cloud cover through 12Z, then decrease clouds with the expectation that as the trough aloft shifts to the SE, a strengthening downslope flow will take over from the sfc up to 850mb and scour out the clouds E of the Mtns. Skies will become mostly clear/sunny today with a NW wind around 10-15 mph (gusty and a little stronger over the eastern shore). Highs will avg in the upper 40s N to the lower 50s S.

Continued resemblance of a trough aloft from New England extending down into the mid-Atlantic states tonight, with skies partly cloudy to mostly clear and lows mostly in the upper 20s to lower 30s.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/. As of 330 AM EST Tuesday .

Sfc hi pres from ern Canada will extend S into the local area Wed-Thu and low pres tracks by (well) to the S from the Gulf of Mexico to FL. Will keep PoPs AOB BLO 10% Wed-Thu w/ conditions partly cloudy on avg Wed and a little more cloudy on Thu. Less mixing and more clouds will keep highs a little cooler, mainly in the 40s both days. Lows Wed night in the mid 20s N to the m20s- around 30F S.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 330 AM EST Tuesday .

Will generally be following closet to the 00Z/28 EPS/GEFS ensemble means for the upcoming system Fri into the weekend as operational runs continue to be fairly different with respect to the strength and position of the sfc low as it moves NE along the coast. Overall, still appears that broad sfc high pressure will be centered over the NE CONUS early Fri as sfc low pressure develops/gradually deepens while moving NE from the Gulf of Mexico. Dry, but with clouds increasing to partly/mostly cloudy on Fri. Limited mixing keeps highs mostly in the 40s though some lower 50s will be possible in NE NC. 00Z/28 GFS is much stronger and closer to the coast w/ sfc low pressure late Fri night/Sat and rapidly intensifies the sfc low off the Delmarva Sat. The GEFS has trended a little stronger but is still much weaker than the operational GFS and is overall closer to the EPS and ECWMF operational runs. Thus, have trended PoPs up a bit for Fri night/Sat AM (to likely over far SE VA/NE NC), but will maintain continuity w/ 30-50% PoPs elsewhere. Still looking that cold air will be lacking . so p-type appears to be mostly RA with lows Fri night near 32F far NW and in the mid 30s to around 40F elsewhere. With flow expected to shift to the W later Sat, highs should warm well into the 40s NW to the lower 50s S. Upper level trough trailing behind is expected to cross the region Sat night-Sun resulting in VRB clouds and possible SCT SHRAs (highest PoPs NE). Could be enough cold air aloft for a mix with snow showers over mainly the N late Sat night/early Sun AM but PoPs are only ~30% for now. Another warmup is expected early next week Highs Sun in the l50s. except u40s on the ern shore Highs Mon in the m50s on the ern shore. u50s-around 60F elsewhere.

AVIATION /09Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 1245 AM EST Tuesday .

VFR conditions prevail and showers have moved off to the SE of Albemarle Sound in NC. There are still a lot of clouds and CIGs of 5-7k ft are observed at most of the main terminals. Winds have shifted to the N/NW at 5-10 kt. High pressure centered over the midwest will move a little closer to the local area today as low pressure lingers over Atlantic Canada. Skies will become mostly clear/sunny today with a NW wind around 10kt (gusty and a little stronger over the eastern shore).

OUTLOOK . Weak low pressure over the Gulf of Mexico moves E as high pressure becomes centered to our N Wed/Thu. This may bring some increase in clouds later Wed into Thu and somewhat stronger NE winds near the coast on Thu but conditions will remain VFR. Dry/VFR Fri, then a stronger low pressure system is expected to lift NE along the SE coast Fri night/Sat spreading clouds into the local area and a greater potential for flight restrictions by Sat.

MARINE. As of 315 AM EST Tuesday .

No changes to the headlines, with Small Craft Advisories now in effect for all the Chesapeake Bay, lower James River, and Currituck Sound through 10 AM EST (15 UTC). NW winds will continue to increase to around 15 to 20 knots over the next couple of hours with gusts to as high as 25 knots at times. While a few gusts may touch 25 knots across the coastal waters, expect this to be fairly limited/confined to elevated locations, thus opted to leave the coastal waters out of the SCA. Seas generally build to 3 to 4 feet this morning (potentially up to 5 feet out 20 nm), and waves in the Bay build to around 2 to 3 feet.

Still watching the potential for another surge of CAA tonight into early Wednesday morning, with the highest wind probabilities across the northern Bay and northern coastal waters. Anticipate winds to stay below SCA criteria, though a few gusts to 20 knots will be possible for elevated sites across the northern Chesapeake Bay. With surface high pressure building across the area, expect winds to generally remain around 10 knots or less Wednesday through Friday. A coastal low potentially impacts the area by this weekend, but much uncertainty still remains regarding low placement/timing.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
