AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 253 AM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024

SYNOPSIS
Low pressure will track east northeast off the southeast coast and out to sea today into Monday morning. High pressure will build over the area for later Monday through Tuesday morning, then slides off the coast by Tuesday evening. A cold front will swing across the region on Wednesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/
As of 900 PM EDT Saturday...

Evening wx analysis shows a cold front lying across NW portions of the CWA Dew points have fallen into the upper 20s-low 30s behind the front. Expect a continued drop in dew points (and temps to some degree) as the front continues through the area tonight. It'll remain mostly clear to partly cloudy through the night before an increase in clouds across the SE as srn stream low pressure gets closer to the area (but remains offshore of the Carolina coast). Low temps will drop into the upper 30s/lower 40s N to the upper 40s/around 50F S. Otherwise, little changes to the rainfall forecast heading into tomorrow and the forthcoming discussion remains unchanged from earlier.

Sun into early Mon morning, a southern stream low pressure system is progged to move out of the Gulf Coast states then off the SE coast, and out to sea. Rain chances begin by mid morning over far southern VA/NE NC, and spread NE through the aftn. With dew pts quite low as the rain initiates (in the 30s N to lower 40s S), this will make for a very chilly day where the rain becomes widespread as a result of column cooling processes. PoPs during the aftn range from 60-80% over the S/SE, to less than 20% across the northern tier of the CWA QPF amounts are expected to range from 0.25"+ in NE NC to only a few hundredths or less from metro RIC and pts north. As noted above, temperatures will be quite cool, especially if the rain were to begin early in the morning. For now, the forecast will show high temperatures from south central/SE VA and NE NC to avg in the mid 50s, with upper 50s to around 60F to the N (but some areas may barely get out of the lower 50s in the far S and if the rain stays far enough S throughout the day, northern zones could reach into the lower 60s by late aftn).

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/
As of 400 PM EDT Saturday...

That system moves out to sea Sunday night, with mainly just chc PoPs lingering over far SE VA and NE NC Sunday evening, followed by clearing overnight. With dry air in the low levels overnight (dew pts falling into the lower 30s NW), expect lows to reach down into the mid 30s over the piedmont, potentially close to freezing in the far NW in the coldest spots. Did not add patchy frost wording to the grids, but this may need to be addressed by the next shift. The models depict ~1025mb sfc high pressure centered from east Texas to the mid MS/lower OH Valley on Monday, ridging E into the local area. Aloft, a weak trough will be in place, but the sky should be sunny or mostly sunny across the local area (with a bit more cloud cover across the far SE). Highs on Monday will be warmer than Sunday, but still 5-10F below avg for late April, ranging from the lower- mid 60s near the coast to the upper 60s well inland. With low dew pts continuing and sfc high pressure becoming centered over the local area Mon night, expect a clear sky, light winds, and good radiational cooling conditions farther E than Sun night.
Forecast lows are in the mid/upper 30s over much of the CWA, with lower 40s near the coast. At least patchy frost will be possible over much of the CWA Turning warmer on the backside of the sfc high for Tuesday, with a light southerly flow by aftn inland. Mainly sunny with highs lower 70s inland, and mid to upper 60s at the coast.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/
As of 405 PM EDT Saturday...

High pressure slides offshore by Tue evening, before another cold front brings a slight or small chance of showers Wed. Not as cool Tue night with a southerly flow and increasing clouds (lows in the mid 40s to around 50F). The system on Wed will be northern stream, with low level flow turning westerly rather quickly. As such, moisture will be limited, and PoPs will only be 20-25% N and 15% or less over the S. Highs will be in the low-mid 70s. Another fairly strong high pressure system is progged to build in from the Great Lakes Thu-Fri. The 12Z/20 GFS is the strongest and therefore the coldest with low temperatures both Wed night/thu AM and again thu night/Fri AM.
For now have split the difference going slightly cooler than the NBM for lows, with the potential for some additional frost, especially across the piedmont and over the northern 1/2 of the CWA The high will slide off to the NE or E during Fri. Highs will be in low-mid 60s NE to near 70F SW Thu, and in the upper 60s to lower 70s Fri. There will be at least a low chc for rain by Sat as the next system lifts ENE through the Great Lakes/upper midwest (with quite a bit of model spread at this time). PoPs are only 20-30% for now w/ highs Sat mainly in the 70s.

AVIATION /07Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/
As of 230 AM EDT Sunday...

Mainly VFR CIGs (isolated MVFR CIGs ) will prevail at the TAF sites through at least 12-13z this morning, with winds becoming N or NE and increasing at bit. Rain chances increase quickly between 12z-15z this morning across southern VA and NE NC, becoming widespread by late this morning through this aftn at ECG/ORF, and likely PHF as well. There is a chance (30-50%)
for rain at RIC, and a slightly lower chance (20-30%) for rain at SBY. Expect flight restrictions to MVFR initially with a period of IFR CIGs likely at ECG/ORF/PHF from late this morning into this evening. RIC/SBY will mostly be VFR (maybe briefly MVFR) even if there is some light rain. Conditions will improve to VFR from NW to SE this evening into late tonight, as the rain and low pressure area push well ESE of the region.

Outlook: VFR conditions will prevail Mon-Tue, and probably for most of Wed as well.

MARINE
As of 300 PM EDT Saturday...

The surface cold front has cleared the local waters and will likely stall off the NC coast later this evening. Aloft, flow is largely zonal with a trough over eastern Canada and a weak ridge over the Gulf Coast. Winds locally are variable at 5-10 kt. Waves are 1-2 ft with seas 3-4 ft offshore.

A secondary front is forecast to drop southward across the waters tonight with decent cold advection and N winds increasing to 15-20 kt with gusts 25 kt. Opted to include the Currituck Sound in the inherited SCA headlines for the Ches Bay and lower James River with a period of 15-20 kt NNE winds late tonight into Sunday. Winds become NNE or NE for the southern waters prior to sunrise tomorrow which will likely allow seas to build to 4-5 ft near and south of the VA/NC border. Accordingly, have hoisted SCA headlines for this zone from 4am into the early evening. Headlines may need to be extended for the Currituck Sound if winds stay as strong as some of the hi-res guidance suggests. An area of low pressure moves off the Carolinas late Sunday and into early next week supporting a persistent NE flow and building seas. Would not be surprised to eventually need another SCA over southern coastal waters south of the VA/NC border by the time we get into the day on Monday, but will keep seas aob 4 ft with this forecast.
