AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 932 PM EDT Sun Apr 5 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak cold front approaches the local area this evening before crossing the area on Monday. The front moves back north as a warm front Monday night through Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM MONDAY MORNING/. As of 930 PM EDT Sunday .

Only minor tweaks to the near term forecast, mainly expanding the chance pops across the north where a few widely scattered light rain showers are occurring. Looking at obs, as expected only a few hundredths of an inch of rain is falling. Remainder of the forecast remains on track.

Previous discussion .

As of 250 PM EDT Sunday .

Much nicer wx over the entire FA this afternoon as weak sfc hi pres is slow to exit off the coast. SSW winds inland/SE winds near the coast . mainly avgg 10 mph or less w/ temperatures mainly in the m-u60s . except for u50s-l60s at the (immediate) coast.

A weak cold front is currently back near the mountains this afternoon . and that front will be slowly pushing ESE across the FA tonight. The result will be increased clouds and an expansion of PoPs (from near 15%) over the far WNW this evening to across the entire FA (to 15-30% . highest far N and NE) after 03-06Z/06. QPF through tonight will be very light (avgg less than a few hundredths of an inch). Lows tonight will be in the m-u40s in rural inland areas to the l50s in most metro/urban areas.

SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 315 PM EDT Sunday .

A 15-30% chc (highest SE) for SHRAs will persist Mon morning as the aforementioned front settles SSE into NC/off the coast. A remnant of that front will become aligned WNW-ESE Mon afternoon. Some re-development of SHRAs is expected along/S of the front Mon aftn (mainly over far srn VA/NE NC). Forecast soundings show best instability (albeit limited mainly over NC and any mid-upper level support remains meager. Slightly warmer Mon w/ Mon w/ highs ranging from the l-m60s near the coast (where winds become NNE) to the l-m70s over far srn VA and interior NE NC.

The weak boundary moves back N as a warm front Mon night-Tue as lo pres tracks E across the nrn Plains to the wrn Great Lakes. That boundary will likely struggle pulling back N of the entire area (on Tue) w/ clouds and chc PoPs (40-50%) remaining over N and NE locations in FA. Lows Mon night from the m40s-around 50F on the ern shore/nrn Neck-Middle Peninsula to the l50s elsewhere.

Additional s/w in WNW flow aloft will approach and move into the area Tue afternoon Along w/ potential SCT SHRAs. becoming warmer central VA on S and SW w/ a slight uptick in available instability may result in ISOLD afternoon tstms central/SW. SPC has most of the FA outlined in a General Thunder risk. Highs Tue from the m60s on the ern shore to the u70s-around 80s central/srn VA to NE NC.

Coverage of pcpn decreases Tue night w/ a mainly dry forecast after 06z (except for a slight chc of showers on the Lower MD Ern Shore) Lows Tue night in the 50s-around 60F. On Wed. WSW winds and partly cloudy conditions will lead to a warmer day for all areas. Highs from the u60s-m70s on the ern shore to the u70s-l80s elsewhere.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 150 PM EDT Sunday .

The extended period will be dominated by WNW flow aloft (and a transition from above normal temperatures to those avgg near-below normal). Sfc lo pres will be tracking by N of the FA Thu pushing a cold front (w/ diminishing moisture) across the region. Cooler/dry air is expected to follow Thu night-Sat By Sun. another cold front is expected to arrive from the NW . leading to increased clouds and chances for SHRAs.

Lows Wed night in the l-m50s N to the m-u50s S. Highs Thu from the l-m70s N and along the coast to around 80F elsewhere. Lows Thu night in the l40s N and NW to the u40s SE. Highs Fri in the u50s-around 60F N and NE to the l-m60s S and SW. Lows Fri night in the u30s-around 40F N and NW to the m-u40s along the SE VA/NE NC coasts. Highs Sat in the u50s-around 60F N and NE to the l-m60s S. Highs Sun 60-65F N and NE to the u60s S.

AVIATION /02Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 710 PM EDT Sunday .

VFR conditions expected through the 00Z TAF period. SCT to BKN mid clouds will move across RIC/SBY early this evening and the remaining terminals overnight. Slight chance of a shower overnight. VCSH is mentioned at SBY at after 06Z but chances too low to mention anywhere else. Winds are southerly at SBY and southeasterly at remaining sites, with wind speeds under 10 kts.

A front moves south across the area on Monday after 12Z and will turn the winds to a northerly direction, with wind speeds remaining below 10 kts. Scattered showers develop Monday afternoon into the evening, but should mainly stay SW of area TAF locations. ECG would have the highest chance of seeing a shower, but even there chances are too low at this point to mention towards the end of this TAF period. Despite the frontal system moving through and scattered precip, ceilings are expected to remain VFR.

Front lifts back north on Tuesday, with a moist southerly flow expected. Near term guidance is suggesting that sub VFR ceilings are possible Tuesday morning through early afternoon, along with scattered rain showers.

MARINE. As of 330 PM EDT Sunday .

High pressure remains over the region this afternoon with generally light winds at 5 to 10 kt over much of the coastal waters. SCA for the mouth of the Ches Bay has been cancelled due to waves dropping to 2 to 3 feet. SCAs for seas in the coastal waters remain in effect due to seas of 5 to 7 feet this afternoon associated with a 12 to 13 sec long period swell. Seas will gradually subside to 4 to 6 feet overnight before dropping below SCA criteria in the northern coastal waters tomorrow morning. Seas are expected to remain at SCA criteria through tomorrow evening in the southern coastal waters due to onshore flow working against the weakening swell.

High pressure drifts offshore this evening ahead of a weak cold front expected to move through the region tomorrow morning. Winds become S at 10 to 15 kt tonight before shifting to N behind the cold front tomorrow morning. The front is expected to wash out or lift back N Mon night as winds shift to SE. Mainly sub-SCA conditions expected to continue from tomorrow night through late week with slightly stronger westerly flow expected Wednesday. The greatest chance for SCA conditions will be late Thursday/Friday.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. As of 355 PM EDT Sunday .

Will be canceling Coastal Flood Warnings at 400 PM this aftn and re-issuing Coastal Flood Advisories for late this evening into very early Mon morning for portions of the northern Neck adjacent to the Potomac (Lewisetta) and for the Bayside of the MD eastern shore (Crisfield/Bishops Head/Cambridge).

AKQ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. MD . Coastal Flood Advisory until 4 AM EDT Monday for MDZ021>023. NC . None. VA . Coastal Flood Advisory until 3 AM EDT Monday for VAZ075-077. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 4 PM EDT Monday for ANZ654. Small Craft Advisory until 8 PM EDT Monday for ANZ656-658. Small Craft Advisory until 10 AM EDT Monday for ANZ650-652.

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.
