AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 855 PM EDT Tue May 28 2024

SYNOPSIS
Mild and drier conditions are expected across the region through late week, though some isolated late day showers or thunderstorms will be possible over far northern portions of our area this afternoon and Wednesday. Pleasant and less humid conditions are expected for Thursday through Saturday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING/
As of 850 PM EDT Tuesday...

Key Messages:

- An isolated shower or storm is possible over far northern counties and western piedmont counties over the next couple of hours. Otherwise, dry and pleasant tonight.

GOES water vapor channels depict an upper trough extending from the Great Lakes to the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast this evening. Surface low pressure is located over southern QB with the associated cold front well away from the Delmarva coast, but just off the Carolina coast to the S. Showers/storms associated with the front have stayed to the S of the Albemarle Sound this evening. A shortwave trough lifting across the northern Mid- Atlantic is triggering isolated showers and potentially a few tstms across northern VA and MD. A few of these have clipped the northern counties and the western piedmont this evening. A couple of stronger showers have produced wind gusts ~30-40mph according to sfc obs. Precip is expected to end within the next couple of hours. Otherwise, dry and pleasant tonight with low temperatures ranging from the mid 50s NW to the mid 60s SE.

SHORT TERM /6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY/
As of 300 PM EDT Tuesday...

Key Messages:

- Scattered showers and storms possible across the north once again on Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday evening.

- Pleasant and comfortable Thursday and Friday.

A vigorous upper trough and associated secondary cold front will dive SE and reach the Mid-Atlantic Wednesday afternoon and evening. This will trigger isolated to scattered showers, with the greatest coverage across the northern and northeastern tier of the area (mainly NE of the I-64 corridor). Cooler temperatures aloft will allow for the development of some modest instability (< 500 J/kg of MLCAPE) by the afternoon as bulk shear and mid-level lapse rates increase slightly. So while widespread severe is not anticipated, a few tstms (and potentially even a stronger tstm or two) are certainly possible.
Will keep PoPs in the 30-40% range north of I-64, with little or no rain chances south of RIC metro to Hampton Roads/NE NC.
The cold front pushes offshore Wednesday night with high pressure building across the region for Thursday and Friday.
This will bring dry and pleasant conditions for the latter portion of the week.

Highs Wednesday are mainly in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
Cooler Wednesday night with lows in the 50s for most of the area, and near 60F/lower 60s for the far SE. Highs Thursday and Friday are generally in the 70s and dewpoints only in the upper 40s to lower 50s under a mostly sunny sky. Lows Friday morning potentially drop into the upper 40s for the Piedmont, with 50s for most of the area, and around 60F far SE.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/
As of 300 PM EDT Tuesday...

Key Message:

- Gradually warming temperatures return Sunday into early next week.

An upper ridge builds across the East Coast over the weekend into early next as surface high pressure settles offshore. This will bring mainly dry conditions and warming temperatures. A dampening trough tries to push across the top of the ridge Sunday into early next week, but PoPs are no higher than climo at this time. Highs trend back into the 80s this weekend into early next week, with lows in the 50s to begin the medium range period and then 60s later in the weekend into early next week.

AVIATION /01Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
As of 745 PM EDT Tuesday...

Low pressure is centered well N of the region as of 23z and its associated cold front has pushed S of the Albemarle Sound. VFR with FEW-SCT clearing skies and a W-NW wind of 5-10kt (locally NE at ORF). Latest radar shows a few showers NE of RIC and a few storms S of ECG. These are expected to come to an end soon.
Otherwise, dry and VFR tonight with a calm to very light variable wind. An upper trough slides across the region Wednesday. This has the potential to trigger isolated to scattered showers/tstms during the aftn, with chances ranging from 15-20% S to 30-40% N. The wind will mainly be WSW 5-10kt inland and NNE along the coast.

Dry and VFR conditions prevail Thursday through Sunday as high pressure builds across the region.

MARINE
As of 250 PM EDT Tuesday...

Key Message:

- Relatively benign marine conditions are expected through the week.

Light and variable winds across the waters this afternoon with a stalled front near the area. Seas are generally 2-3 ft and waves in the bay are 1 ft or less. The front drops S tonight, briefly shifting winds to the S and then to the N early Wednesday. Winds again become variable Wednesday afternoon before a secondary cold front drops through the waters late Thursday night into Wednesday morning. This will likely produce a brief surge of northerly winds to around 15 kt in the Chesapeake Bay. There is a low-medium chance (around 15-20% per local wind probs) that small craft advisories will be needed. Winds relax some, but remain northerly, for Thursday afternoon/evening. There will likely be another surge of cooler air Friday morning and winds again increase to around 15 kt. Similar to the Wed night/Thu morning event, this is looking mainly sub-SCA (but cannot completely rule them out). Waves in the bay increase to 2-3 ft during these surges, but average 1-2 ft otherwise. Seas remain 2- 3 ft through the period. Mainly benign conditions into the weekend with high pressure near the area.

The rip current risk remains low tomorrow (Wednesday) and Thursday given mainly 2 ft nearshore breaking waves and light winds.
