AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 800 PM EDT Sat May 30 2020

SYNOPSIS. A cold front will cross the area tonight, then pushes offshore overnight. High pressure builds into the region Sunday through Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/. As of 245 PM EDT Saturday .

Mid-aftn analysis showing developing showers and embedded t-storms along weakening sfc (pre-frontal) trough. Showers have pushed east of an AKQ/Surry line. 18z Mesoanalysis showing narrow plume of 1.5-1.75" PW's lingering along the coast, coincident with a narrow low level convergence zone. MLCAPE values now in the 1000-1500 J/kg range over the SE third of the area, which supports the ARW/12z 3KM NAM conest depiction favoring a slow E-SE movement for showers and storms, eventually reaching Tidewater by late aftn/early evening. Wet- microbursts/loosely organized Multi-cells appear to be the preferred storm mode attm. 20-30 kt effective shear would support some marginally severe wind gusts (mainly along/east of an Smithfield VA-Ahoskie NC line) as sct cells encounter higher PWs late this aftn. Will drop PoPs west of 95 by early evening, with clearing ensuing through the overnight.

Given lower Flash Flood Guidance over Hampton Roads due to recent rains, will need to monitor closely for some more minor flooding issues.

Lingering PoPS across the sern zones into the late night hours, with decreasing clouds after midnight as front crosses and high pressure builds in from the nw. Cooler with gradually lower humidity. Lows mid- upr 50s nw to the low-mid 60s se.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 200 PM EDT Saturday .

Cool sfc high pressure builds down from the Great Lakes region Sun, before it builds across the Mid-Atlantic states Monday aftn and night, before eventually shifting offshore on Tue. Dry/cooler days, with chilly/comfortable nights thru the period along with lwr humidity. Highs Sun/Mon in the low- mid 70s, except ~70 at the beaches. Lows Sun night upr 40s- mid 50s. Lows Mon night in the 50s. Return flow will allow a modest bump up in temps back to near 80 inland . mid to upper 70s along the coast, under a sunny to partly sunny sky.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 340 PM EDT Saturday .

A strong ridge begins to move in Tuesday night as high pressure moves offshore. This will allow for summer temps to make their comeback. It is increasingly likely that Wednesday will be the first 90 degree day of the year for many in the piedmont. Slightly cooler temps in the mid to upper 80s are expected closer to the coast with mid 80s along the Eastern Shore. Thursday will be another hot day with highs once again near 90F over most of the piedmont with mid to upper 80s along the coast and low to mid 80s along the Eastern Shore.

The ridge remains in place through the extended period (centered to our west) and temps will remain in the mid to upper 80s Friday and Saturday, except along the Eastern Shore where temps will be slightly cooler in the low 80s. Lows throughout the extended are expected to be generally in the upper 60s to around 70F. Due to the positioning of the ridge, we will be located on the eastern side of it and therefore NW flow will dominate with a series of shortwaves moving around the ridge through the week.

The first shortwave moves through late Tuesday/early Tuesday night which will allow for a chance for showers/storms to persist into the early evening. The next shortwave passes well to our NE on Wednesday. However, it appears that the southern piece of that energy stalls just north of our CWA late Wednesday night through Thursday before finally moving south late Thursday. Another shortwave moves through Friday followed by yet another shortwave late Friday night/Saturday. Our best chance for widespread showers/storms appears to be Thursday/Thursday night and Saturday.

AVIATION /00Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 800 PM EDT Saturday .

Scattered showers/tstms persist over NE NC as of 00z, with isolated showers across far srn VA. Tstms are expected to push S of ECG after 00z. SCT-BKN clouds ~8-10kft cover most of the terminals, with 4-5kft cigs at ECG. This cloud cover is generally expected to persist overnight as a cold front approaches from the N and sweeps across the region from 06-12z. The wind is expected to become NNE behind the cold front and increase to 8-12kt by early Sunday morning, with gusts to 15-20kt from late morning through aftn. BKN cigs ~10kft early Sunday morning will give way to SCT aftn CU ~6kft.

VFR conditions are expected to prevail Sunday night through Tuesday as high pressure spreads across the region. High pressure moves offshore Wednesday and Thursday with a chc of aftn/evening showers/tstms.

MARINE. As of 340 PM EDT Saturday .

Late this aftn, a (pre-frontal) sfc trough was centered over the srn waters with the actual cold front/associated CAA surge well to our north. Winds are variable/onshore aob 12 kt. Seas are 2-3 ft with 1-2 ft waves on the Ches Bay. The cold front will cross the waters this evening through tonight with winds turning to the N behind the front. A brief post-frontal CAA surge will result in 15- 25 kt sustained winds in the Ches Bay/ocean from early Sunday morning (~06-08z) to around midday Sunday. The highest winds are expected to occur over the Ches Bay, and coastal waters S of Cape Charles, where a few gusts to near 30 kt are possible from 08-14z Sun (especially at elevated sites). SCAs for the Ches Bay remain in effect from early Sun AM-17z/1 PM Sun. SCAs are now in effect from early Sun AM-midday/early aftn for the Lower James River, Currituck Sound, and coastal waters S of Cape Charles, as there has been a slight upward trend in the 12z/30 model wind forecasts. Therefore, forecaster confidence has increased enough to issue SCAs for these zones. Still could see a few gusts to 25 kt over the nrn Coastal waters Sun AM, but do not anticipate these to be frequent enough to warrant SCAs. Winds on the upper rivers will reach ~15 kt. Seas briefly build to 3-4 ft N/4-5 ft S by mid-late Sun AM with 3-4 ft waves on the Ches Bay.

Winds drop below SCA criteria Sunday afternoon but another CAA surge arrives Sun night-Mon AM as winds turn more to the NNE. Still anticipate that wind speeds/gusts will be just below SCA criteria on the bay/ocean, but there is a chc of 5 ft seas in the NE NC coastal waters. Winds become light during the day on Mon as high pressure becomes centered over the waters. Conditions will remain sub-SCA into Tuesday with winds becoming SW again by Monday night and lasting into midweek.

Will maintain the low risk of rip currents on Sun, but this may need to be upgraded to moderate for the srn beaches. A moderate risk of rip currents is forecast for all beaches on Monday due to an increase in east-southeasterly swell.

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.
