AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 938 PM EDT Fri May 29 2020

SYNOPSIS. Southerly flow in advance of a slow moving cold front approaching from the west will keep a moist and humid air mass in place into Saturday. A cold front is then expected to sweep across the region Saturday evening, bringing cooler and drier air to the region Sunday into early next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/. As of 935 PM EDT Friday .

Late this evening, latest radar showed just isolated to sctd showers moving ENE through ern and extrm srn/SE portions of the area. Also, a broken line of sctd showers/tstms was pushing ewrd through the mtns. The latest CAMS (fcst reflectivity) show that these storms will weaken and dissipate over the next hour or two as they approach Louisa/Fluvanna counties. Still will keep chc PoPs for showers and maybe isolated tstm until just after midnight, then slight or sml chc over ern/sern areas overnight into early Sat morning. Conditions tonight remain warm and muggy with lows ranging from the mid 60s to lower 70s.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 345 PM EDT Friday .

Upper level trough and surface cold front approach the region on Saturday with the cold front forecast to swing from NW to SE through the course of the afternoon and early evening. Ahead of this boundary, there is some potential for strong storms to develop from late morning into the afternoon. SPC has outlined a Marginal Risk area across SE VA and NE NC, primarily for damaging straight line winds and isolated instances of hail. The greatest chance for thunder will exist from roughly the Richmond metro south and east where 1000-2000 J/kg of MLCAPE will overlap 20-30 knots of deep layer shear. Temperatures will be able to warm into the low and mid 80s in the prefrontal airmass. The front should be through most of the area by Saturday evening with decreasing temperatures and humidity. Lows Saturday night fall into the mid 50s NW but linger into the low 60s SE.

All precip should be well offshore by sunrise on Sunday with skies continuing to clear from NW to SE through the morning. Much drier and pleasant on Sunday afternoon with highs rising into the low and mid 70s. Much cooler on Sunday night with lows in the upper 40s NW to low/mid 50s for the remainder of the area. Continued dry and comfortable on Monday with high pressure overhead, highs into the low 70s with mostly clear skies.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 345 PM EDT Friday .

High pressure and dry conditions are expected Monday night and Tuesday. Several rounds of showers/storms are possible mid-late week as multiple shortwaves move through and NW flow dominates. Otherwise, expect a warming trend by mid-late week with the first 90F days of the year possible for many locations.

Low temps Mon night will be in the low 50s. Lows Tues night will be warmer in the low to mid 60s. Lows Wed and Thurs nights will range from the mid to upper 60s before cooling slightly to the low to mid 60s on Fri night. Highs Tuesday will range from the upper 70s to near 80F with mid 70s expected along the Eastern Shore. High Temps Wed and Thurs will range from the upper 80s to the lower 90s with mid 80s expected along the Eastern Shore. High temps cool slightly to the mid 80s with upper 70s to lower 80s expected along the Eastern Shore.

AVIATION /02Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 805 PM EDT Friday .

Just expect isolated to sctd showers this evening into the overnight hours. So, mainly just have VCSH at the TAF sites through midnight, expect ECG where have -SHRA. Otherwise, expect mainly VFR or MVFR CIGs at the TAF sites this evening into Sat evening, as cold front will approach and push into the region. Do mention isolated IFR CIGs at ECG and PHF possible into early Sat morning. Winds will be primarily S around 5 to 10 kt and will become SW tonight into Sat morning, then become W then NW or NNE Sat aftn behind the cold front. Sctd showers and tstms will be possible Sat aftn into early Sat evening, mainly over SE portions of the area (PHF/ORF/ECG).

OUTLOOK . Becoming drier Sat night and Sun, as the front pushes out to sea and high pressure begins to build in from the NW.

MARINE. As of 940 PM EDT Friday .

All Small Craft Advisories have been cancelled. Seas at buoy 44009 are currently right around 4 feet and are expected to diminish further through the night.

Previous discussion: Southerly winds continue this afternoon. Generally 5-10 kts in the bay and 10-15 kts over the coastal waters. Waves in the bay 2-3 ft. Seas are 3-4 ft southern coastal waters and 3-5 ft northern coastal waters. SCA runs until 06Z for the elevated seas. S/SW flow on Saturday ahead of an approaching front from the west. Winds 5-15 kts. Waves in the bay 1-2 ft and seas 2-4 ft.

Front crosses the area waters late Saturday night with the winds turning to the N/NW behind the front. The brief CAA surge will likely result in SCA winds in the bay Sunday morning into the afternoon.

Low risk of rip currents this weekend.

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.
