AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 110 PM EDT Sun Jul 12 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak cold front will approach the region tonight. Otherwise, hot and humid conditions are expected to continue through much of next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 110 PM EDT Sunday .

No significant changes needed to the going forecast. Some late aftn pulse showers/T-Storms possible along and east of US-17 in the eastern Tidewater area this afternoon along developing sea- breeze. Otherwise, dry and hot this afternoon. Highs in the low (a few mid) 90s inland, upper 80s to near 90 along the coast.

While most convection should hang inland along weakening sfc front, Isolated to widely sct showers and T-Storms are possible along the US-15 corridor out in the e VA Piedmont after 5pm this aftn into the early evening. Re-evaluating potential for showers overnight as front slowly crosses the area, but inherited PoPs in this period and beyond look good right now.

Previous discussion follows .

As of 400 AM EDT Sunday .

A weak surface trough remains along the coast early this morning. However, the area remains dry with mostly clear skies. Temperatures have been allowed to drop into the low to mid 60s away from the waters and mid to upper 70s along the immediate shoreline. Temperatures will once a again climb into the low to mid 90s across the area Sunday afternoon under mostly sunny conditions. An afternoon seabreeze will likely develop along the coast and keep high temperatures in the upper 80s at the beaches.

A shortwave trough with a sfc cold front will be progressing east across Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia during the day today, and will approach the area from the west late this evening. Some showers may reach the central VA Piedmont by late this evening, but much of the area along and east of I-95 is expected to remain dry into Sunday night. Pops are 20-40% for Sunday night across central and southeast VA as the cold front slowly moves across the area.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 430 AM EDT Sunday .

High temperatures will be 88-91 Monday afternoon with scatters showers and storms around the area. The weakening front will again be the focus for convection as it pushes across Hampton Roads/eastern shore/NE NC Monday aftn. Pops are accordingly around 30-50% (mainly east of I- 95) for Monday afternoon into Monday night. Low temperatures Monday night will range from the mid 60s across the Piedmont to mid 70s near the coast.

High pressure will be building into the area from the NW Monday afternoon into Tuesday. Once the cold front moves off the coast Monday, dry condition are expected through Wednesday. Overnight low temperatures Monday and Tuesday night will drop into the 60s and 70s, with afternoon high temperatures in the low to mid 90s.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 355 PM EDT Saturday .

Typical mid-July conditions will prevail across the area during the extended period. Very warm or hot conditions expected Wed through Sat. Rather humid Wed and Thu, and very humid conditions Fri and Sat. Sfc high pressure will be centered off the Mid Atlc coast through the period, providing an E or SE flow on Wed, SE or S flow on Thu, then S or SW flow on Fri and Sat. Only a slight chance of mainly aftn/early evening showers/tstms Wed and Thu, and mainly inland/Piedmont. Better aftn/evening chances (PoPs 20-40%) for Fri and Sat, due to the combination of increased low level moisture and shortwave energy moving through the region.

High temps will generally range from the upper 80s to lower 90s, some mid 90s likely in some places. Lows will range from the upper 60s to mid 70s through the period. Heat indices will be the highest on Fri and Sat, between 100 to 105 degrees.

AVIATION /14Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 110 PM EDT Sunday .

Mainly VFR through the 18z TAF period with clear to partly sunny conditions expected. Slight chance of a SHRA/TSRA late this aftn at ECG but given expected low areal coverage, will keep any mention of precip out of the TAF at this time. Mid to high- level clouds will move into the area late tonight, with a chance of showers at RIC late tonight and into early Monday.

OUTLOOK . Mainly VFR conditions continue into the beginning of the week, with just scattered late day convection possible each day which may result in brief flight restrictions.

MARINE. As of 400 AM EDT Sunday .

A weak trough will slide off the coast early this morning, and then dissipate offshore. Meanwhile, high pressure will remain anchored well offshore as another lee-side trough develops E of the Blue Ridge today, and then shift toward the coast tonight. The wind will become NW 5-10kt in the wake of the initial trough early this morning, and then become sea-breeze dominant late morning through mid-aftn. The wind then becomes SSE 8-12kt late aftn into early evening, before gradually shift to SSW overnight. Seas range from 2- 3ft S to 3-4ft N early this morning, and will become 2-3ft for all areas by this aftn into tonight. Waves in the Bay will generally be 1-2ft today into tonight. The wind may briefly shift to W behind the second trough early Monday, before becoming SSW during the day Monday ahead of a cold front. There is a low chc of tstms Monday aftn ahead of the cold front, but any tstms may produce some locally stronger wind gusts. The cold front is expected to push across the coast later Monday night into early Tuesday. The wind shifts to NNW 10-15kt late Monday night into Tuesday morning. High pressure then builds into the area later Tuesday into Wednesday. This area of high pressure slides offshore by Thursday. Seas Sunday through the middle of next week are expected to range from 2-3ft, with 1-2ft waves in the Bay.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
