AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 730 PM EDT Thu Apr 22 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure builds over and across the area tonight through Friday. Low pressure crosses the region Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. High pressure returns Sunday into early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 500 PM EDT Thursday .

High pressure will become centered over the Carolinas and southern Mid-Atlantic tonight. After a partly to mostly cloudy sky early this evening, the sky will become clear by late this evening and overnight. Winds will diminish overnight with somewhat higher dew points, which will lead to widespread frost. Low temperatures are expected to drop to around 30 degrees across the Piedmont (even a few upr 20s in the coldest spots) and 30-34 degrees across much of eastern VA, NE NC and the lower MD eastern shore. A freeze warning remains in effect for much of central and western portions of the FA with a frost advisory for a good portion of far eastern VA, lower MD and interior NE NC. For areas along the immediate coast and urban areas of Hampton roads, widespread frost is not expected as temperatures will be slightly highers with lows near 40 degrees.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 400 PM EDT Thursday .

Friday morning, high pressure will be moving off the Carolina coast and into the western Atlantic. Southwest return flow will allow for temperature to begin to rebound, closer to seasonal averages. High temperatures will be in the mid 60s under mostly sunny skies on Friday. Friday night will not be as cold as tonight. Low temperatures will be in the 40s.

A trough is forecasted to develop across the central part of the country with a sfc low pressure system developing over western Texas on Friday. The upper level trough as associated sfc low pressure will quickly track east and approach the area from the west late Saturday. Ahead of the storm system, rain will overspread the area Saturday afternoon and continue into Saturday night. Severe potential is limited at this time given a lack of surface based instability. However, this will need to be monitored as the event approaches given the presence of a warm front in vicinity of the VA/NC border. QPF ranges from 0.5-1.00". Highs Saturday range from the low 60s in the VA Piedmont with clouds and rain showers arriving earlier. East of I-95, temperatures will rise to the upper 60s/around 70F with more sunshine during the day. Lows Saturday night are forecast to range through the 50s.

Sfc low pressure will move off the coast early Sunday morning with drier conditions returning to the area. Sunday will likely be the best day of the weekend with highs near 70 with mostly sunny skies. Breezy northwest winds are likely Sunday afternoon, with gusts 20-30 mph.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 400 PM EDT Thursday .

Sfc high pressure becomes anchored just of the Mid- Atlantic/Carolina coast next week. At the same time, a ridge aloft will be building northwards over the East Coast. This results in a warming trend with above normal temperatures for much of next week. High temperatures will go from the low 70s on Monday to mid 80 by Wednesday and Thursday. Some areas may approach 90 degrees for the first time this year on Wednesday/Thursday. Overnight low temperatures will go from the 40s on Monday to 60s by the middle of the week. No rain is expected for next week.

AVIATION /00Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 730 PM EDT Thursday .

VFR tonight and Friday. Winds will be light from the W through late morning Friday, then becoming SW Friday afternoon, with gusts up to 20 kt for the coastal terminals.

High pressure remains over the region Friday night, before moving offshore Saturday morning. Low pressure will bring showers and degraded flight conditions Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. High pressure returns Sunday into Monday.

MARINE. As of 300 PM EDT Thursday .

High pressure continues to build in from the west this afternoon. W/NW winds are 15-20 kts with gusts around 25 kts in the bay, rivers, and northern coastal waters. Winds in the southern coastal waters are 10-15 kts. Waves in the bay are 2-3 ft and seas 3-5 ft.

As high pressure moves closer to the region tonight and eventually settles over the region Friday morning, W/NW winds will relax to 10- 15 kts. All of the SCA's are expected to expire by late tonight. By Friday morning waves in the bay subside to 1-2 ft and seas subside to 2-4 ft.

Winds become southerly Friday afternoon into Saturday as high pressure moves off the coast. Sub-SCA conditions are expected through Saturday afternoon. The next system will impact the area late Saturday into Sunday, with SCA winds/seas expected beginning Saturday night and lasting into at least early Monday. Calmer marine conditions expected from Monday afternoon through mid week.

FIRE WEATHER. As of 500 PM EDT Thursday .

Relative humidity values will again drop to between 20-25 percent inland and 25-35 percent along the coast Friday afternoon. Despite the low RH, winds will be lesser on Friday which will preclude the need for any fire weather headlines. Additionally, fine fuels will initially be frost covered at daybreak through mid-morning for most of the region, before a milder afternoon with plenty of sunshine.
