AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 658 AM EDT Mon Jul 13 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak cold front will meanders over the area today before pushing offshore this evening. Otherwise, high pressure will then rebuild and bring increasingly hot and humid conditions to the region through much of next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 400 AM EDT Monday .

Shortwave trough and weak cold front is moving east across the Appalachian Mountains early this morning. The trough and attendant cold front will slowly track east towards the coast today. Chance of Pops remain around 30% for showers and thunderstorms Monday morning as the system moves across the VA Piedmont. Greatest chance for showers and thunderstorms will be across southeast VA and northeast NC (Pop ~60%) as the front moves into these area during the afternoon. SPC has placed these areas in a marginal risk for strong to severe storms. Main threat will be isolated damaging winds. High temperatures will be around 90. However, mid-90s are possible across Hampton Roads where there will be more daytime heating before showers and storms develop. Cold front will be moving off the coast this evening with clearing from NW to SE. It looks like most of the afternoon will be dry for areas along and west of I-95 and MD Eastern Shore.

There won't be a real airmass change behind the cold front. Low temperatures Monday night will range from the mid-60s in the Piedmont to mid-70s along the coast. Dew point won't drop overnight much either, expecting dew points in the 60s to around 70 still.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 430 AM EDT Monday .

A ridge aloft will build northeast in the southern Mid-Atlantic as the trough moves off the east coast. At the surface, high pressure will be located off the Northeast U.S. coast. This will keep us in an onshore flow through Wednesday. As a result, high temperatures along the coast were lowered for Tuesday and Wednesday where highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. However farther inland, highs will be able to climb into the low to mid 90s. Overnight low temperatures will be in the 70s. There will be only be a slight chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms, mainly across the VA Piedmont, with the ridge aloft over the region.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 345 PM EDT Sunday .

Low pressure passes well to our N Thursday. The trailing cold front should stall well to our W. However, diurnal heating and subsequent instability will still provide a chance for a few showers/storms in the western piedmont Thurs afternoon. The cold front moves into the region Fri and becomes nearly stationary, resulting in an increased chance for showers/storms Fri afternoon. The front dissipates as it slowly meanders E Fri night into Sat. Diurnal heating/instability once again provides a chance for showers/storms Sat afternoon. A shortwave moves through Sunday and will provide a ample forcing for more widespread showers/storms. Highs in the low to mid 90s. Lows will range from the upper 60s to low 70s on Wed night and from the low to mid 70s Thurs, Fri, Sat, and Sun nights.

AVIATION /12Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 700 AM EDT Monday .

Mainly VFR through the period. Scattered showers/storms are moving across the area this morning. Additional convection is expected on Monday afternoon with the highest chances over the SE. VCTS entered at ORF/ECG/PHF. Brief flight restrictions possible if convection passes over or near a terminal. Winds will remain light and variable, except near thunderstorms.

OUTLOOK . VFR conditions persist through Mid Week with just a slight chance of a shower/storm both Tuesday and Wednesday.

MARINE. As of 400 AM EDT Monday .

A weak trough will slide off the coast early this morning, and then dissipate offshore. Meanwhile, high pressure will remain anchored well offshore. The wind will become W or NW 5-10kt across the nrn half of the marine in the wake of the trough, but remain SW 5-10kt across the srn half of the area. The wind will become sea- breeze dominant late morning through mid-aftn, and then become SW 5- 10kt this evening ahead of a cold front. There is a chc of tstms across the srn half of the area this aftn, which will be capable of producing strong wind gusts. The cold front is expected to push across the coast later tonight into early Tuesday. The wind shifts to NNW 10-15kt late tonight then shifting to NNE Tuesday morning. High pressure then builds N of the region Tuesday aftn into Wednesday with the wind shifting to NE then SE with speeds of 5- 10kt. High pressure slides offshore Thursday into Friday with the wind becoming southerly with speeds aob 15kt. Seas are generally 2- 3ft early this morning, with up to 4ft out near 20nm, and this is expected to continue today. Seas then range from 2-3ft through much of the forecast period, with 1-2ft waves in the Bay.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
