AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 626 PM EST Wed Mar 3 2021

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure continues to track out to sea off the SE coast. A dry cold front moves through Thursday morning with high pressure returning to end the week. Another area of low pressure tracks well to the south of the local area this weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THURSDAY MORNING/. As of 255 PM EST Wednesday .

This afternoon, high pressure is centered off the Va coastline, while low pressure continues to move out to sea off the SE coast. Locally, clouds associated with that system have moved offshore allowing for clear skies across the FA this afternoon which will continue through the night. Winds are light out of the WSW generally <5 MPH for most and 5-10 MPH over the Eastern Shore. Winds will remain light and variable tonight before gradually shifting to the WNW/NW late tonight as a cold front begins to drop south into the northern portion of the FA. Temperatures as of 2:30 PM ranged from the low to mid 50s over the Eastern Shore and the upper 50s to around 60F over the rest of the FA. Clear skies and calm winds will allow temps to drop into the low to mid 30s tonight.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/. As of 255 PM EST Wednesday .

A dry cold front pushes south through the FA Thurs morning shifting winds to NNW/N around 10 MPH inland and 10-15 MPH along the coast and over the Eastern Shore by late morning into the afternoon. Gusts to 20 MPH inland and 25-30 MPH along the coast and over the Eastern Shore will be possible. Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies Thurs with the greatest cloud cover over the Eastern Shore. Any remaining cloud cover dissipates Thurs night as high pressure builds in from the NW. Highs Thurs in the upper 50s to around 60F SW, low to mid 50s in the Northern Neck, and around 50F in the Eastern Shore. Colder Thurs night with lows in the mid to upper 20s for most and upper 20s to around 30F along the coast.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 330 PM EST Wednesday .

Mainly dry weather for Friday night through early next week. Another upper shortwave is progged to track from the Deep South to off the SE CONUS coast from Friday night through Saturday. A strong long wave trough over eastern Canada will keep this system and its moisture suppressed well to our south (from srn SC to FL). This will also keep temps below seasonal averages through the weekend (w/ continued low-level NNW flow). Highs Sat/Sun will generally be in the mid 40s to low 50s. Lows in the mid 20s to low 30s.

Our dry stretch will continue through the Long Term period with milder temperatures returning. The long wave trough will move off the East Coast by Monday. Ridging aloft will build over the regions as sfc high pressure becomes centered over the Mid- Atlantic/Carolinas. High temperatures will warm each day from the 50s on Monday to upper 60s by Wednesday. Monday morning will likely be the coldest morning as a result of a sfc high pressure being centered over the area. Lows will be in the mid 20s to around 30. Low temperatures will warm each morning and be in the 30s and 40s by Tuesday and Wednesday.

AVIATION /00Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 625 PM EST Wednesday .

VFR conditions will prevail through the 00z TAF period. Winds have become mostly light and variable this evening under clear skies. A dry cold front crosses the region tonight into early Thursday which will allow winds to swing around to the NW by sunrise and increase to 10-15 kt with gusts 20-25 kt by mid morning, lasting into the late afternoon.

OUTLOOK . A prolonged period of generally benign weather is expected to continue into early next week as high pressure builds back over the area.

MARINE. As of 245 PM EST Wednesday .

Latest obs reflect light/variable flow across the waters this aftn. Sfc high pressure continues to linger offshore of the mid-Atlantic coast, with sfc low pressure offshore of the coastal Carolinas this aftn. This feature will slowly push farther offshore through tonight. Winds will remain generally light this aftn into tonight aob 10kt.

CAMs continue to indicate sfc cold front dropping south across the local waters early Thu morning . w/ poss brief period of enhanced speeds to may low end SCA for an hour or two, especially over elevated terminals across the Bay. Local Wind probs continue to show AOB 30% prob of SCA criteria being met through Thu Aftn in the Bay, so will hold off and cap winds at 15 kt, though gusts to ~20 KT will be possible in the Rivers and in the Bay Thu aftn. Winds briefly subside into the afternoon . to be followed by a second/stronger period of CAA late Thu aftn through Friday morning with N-NW winds increasing to 15-20 kt with gusts of up to 30 kt Thu evening into the overnight/early Friday. SCA has been hoisted for the entire marine area, starting tomorrow afternoon north of Chincoteague, starting tomorrow evening for the rest of the marine area.

Generally benign marine conditions then favored later Fri and over the upcoming weekend. Sfc high pressure rebuilds over the region, eventually pushing offshore late in the weekend into early next week w/ another weak sfc lo pres moves E-NE across the Gulf coast to the southeast coast. Looking to remain sub-SCA through this time frame . w/ with winds out of the N-NW Sun-Mon.

HYDROLOGY. As of 255 PM EST Wednesday .
