AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 1201 PM EDT Sun Mar 29 2020

SYNOPSIS. A frontal boundary will lift north as a warm front early this afternoon. A cold front will cross the area from the west northwest tonight. Weak high pressure will build into the area for Monday and Monday night. Low pressure then tracks east across the Gulf coast states on Tuesday, then off the coastal Carolinas while intensifying Tuesday night into Wednesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 1200 PM EDT Sunday .

Midday IR sat imagery showing quasi-stationary frontal boundary starting to lift back north as a warm front over eastern VA and the lower eastern shore. Lingering low stratus and nearshore fog gradually scouring out as anticipated. Regional radar mosaic showing some scattered light showers in association with weakening upper wave is pushing off into the northern Mid- Atlantic and away from the local area.

Warm front will lift north of the area by early this afternoon. Meanwhile, vertically stacked system in the upper midwest will lift across the upper midwest/western Great Lakes. The associated sfc cold front will cross the Ohio Valley into the interior northeast mid-aftn, approaching our region from the W-NW late today and tonight.

Remaining dry over our area through at least mid-aftn, and will be pushing PoP back a few hours with the aftn update. Becoming breezy in strengthening warm air advection. Plenty of sun this aftn (especially central and south), and resultant increasingly well- mixed low- levels will allow for a very warm and breezy aftn. High temps mid to upper 80s are still anticipated west of the Ches Bay, while readings over the Lower MD and VA ern shore will average in the mid 70s to near 80. Record temps not really threatened for most sites today, with record maxes now well into the lower to mid 90s, as we cross into late March/early April. However, have added a Climate section below for reference.

Hi-Res CAMs are indicating increasingly unfavorable for convective development this afternoon. Despite strong surface heating and relatively moist llvls, meager broad scale forcing and lift will significantly limit areal coverage. Will maintain a slight chance PoP for most, in anticipation of widely sctd showers and possibly a tstm expected along prefrontal trough after 21z/5pm. SPC continues a marginal risk for today for most of our area, with isolated damaging wind gusts and large hail the main threats. However, aforementioned mitigating factors as well as later timing seem to be working against any significant widespread issues, but will continue to monitor.

The front will push off the coast tonight, with west winds behind the boundary ushering in drier air and a clearing sky. Lows tonight ranging through the 50s to near 60.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 420 AM EDT Sunday .

Dry wx expected Mon and Mon night. Generally mostly sunny on Mon with highs ranging from the upper 60s to mid 70s over the eastern shore, to the mid to upper 70s inland/piedmont. Mostly clear or partly cloudy Mon night with lows in the 40s to lower 50s.

Clouds increase from the WSW during Tue, with increasing rain chances for later Tue into Tue night, as a storm system tracks across the Gulf coast states then off the coastal Carolinas. At this time, highest PoPs will be across the srn half of the area, during this time period. Highs on Tue in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 420 AM EDT Sunday .

PoPs will quickly decrease to chance on Wed, as the storm system moves out to sea. High pressure/dry wx will return for Thu and Fri, as high pressure builds into and over the region. High pressure will slide off the coast on Sat. Highs in the 50s Wed, and mainly in the upper 50s to mid 60s Thu, Fri and Sat.

AVIATION /16Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 300 AM EDT Sunday .

IFR/LIFR conditions were affecting all TAF sites except ECG early this morning, where VFR conditions prevailed. IFR/LIFR conditions will prevail at RIC/PHF/ORF through 12-14Z, then improve quickly to VFR as SW sfc winds begin to pick up, as the front lifts north of these areas. While IFR/LIFR conditions could linger at SBY until 17-18Z. Aftn winds will be from the SW at 10-15 kt with gusts to around 20 kt most areas. Isolated or widely scattered showers and tstms are possible late this aftn into early this evening.

Outlook: Dry/VFR conditions expected tonight and Mon with a breezy W wind Mon aftn. Flight restrictions are likely late Tue into Wed as the next system affects the region. In addition, strong E/NE winds are expected near the coast.

MARINE. As of 1200 PM EDT Sunday .

Marine Dense Fog Advisory continues through 17z/1pm EDT for Ches Bay and open ocean north of Parramore.

Previous Discussion . A stationary front is located over srn VA early this morning. Areas of fog are present N of the boundary. Vsby is 1nm or less off the coast of the Ern Shore where a Marine Dense Fog Advisory is in effect through 10 am N of Parramore Is., and through 7 am from Cape Charles to Parramore Is. Vsby is expected to average 1-3nm for the Bay/Rivers early this morning, but some locally dense fog with vsby 1nm or less is possible. The wind is NE 5-10kt N of the boundary, and SW 10-15kt S of the front, with seas around 3ft and up to 4ft out near 20nm off the MD coast. The boundary will lift N as a warm front later this morning, and this should result in vsby improving. The wind will become SW 10-15kt by this aftn for most of the area, with limited mixing. However, portions of the York and James are expected to have a SW wind of 15kt with occasional gusts to 20kt. A cold front crosses the region tonight, with the wind shifting to W with speeds of 10-15kt tonight into Monday. Again, locally stronger wind up to 15kt is possible over the rivers Monday aftn with gusts up to 20 kt. Seas will range from 2-3ft tonight into Monday. A cold front drops across the region Monday night with a sub- SCA NNW surge, although marginal SCA conditions are possible in the middle Bay. Seas briefly build to 3-4ft, with 2-3ft waves in the Bay. Weak high pressure builds N of the region Tuesday. Low pressure tracks along and off the Carolina coast Tuesday night into Wednesday. SCA conditions are likely, with the latest guidance depicting a potential for gale conditions for the ocean S of Cape Charles. Seas build to 6-8ft N and 8-10ft S Tuesday night into Wednesday. High pressure builds in from the NW Wednesday night into Thursday.

CLIMATE. While record highs are unlikely to fall on Sunday, they are included below for reference as the current forecast is within a few degrees of these values at KORF/KECG.

* Record Highs Sun 3/29:

* RIC: 94 (1907) * ORF: 92 (1907) * SBY: 93 (1907) * ECG: 90 (1985)

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
