AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 353 AM EST Fri Dec 6 2019

SYNOPSIS. A cold front crosses the area tonight with high pressure returning for the weekend. Low pressure tracks across the Great Lakes region early next week, dragging a strong cold front across the area Tuesday night. Canadian high pressure builds in for the mid week period.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. As of 340 AM EST Friday .

Latest MSAS shows high pressure along the coast with a weak upr lvl s/w across nrn VA (noted by bkn high level clouds). Meanwhile, a cold front was located well west of the mts. Models continue to show an increase in mid level moisture today ahead of the cold front progged to cross the area tonite. Thus, expect some sun to start off the day with skies bcmg cldy to mstly cldy this aftrn. Dry as any moisture assctd with a weak energy dvlpg along the Gulf Stream stays south of the local area.

Return SW flow results in a mild day and breezy (at times). Highs mid 50s north to arnd 60 se.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. As of 340 AM EST Friday .

The cold front will cross the area tonight. Little if any lift is noted to generate pcpn but won't rule out a stray shwr/sprinkle across the sern portions of the fa with the fropa. Otw, decreasing clouds north-south thru the nite. Winds become north allowing for some CAA to set in. Lows by 12Z Sat in the 30s except near 40 se.

Sunny but cool Sat as high pressure builds tracks north of the area. Highs in the mid-upr 40s except arnd 50 ivof Albemarle Sound. Clear Sat night as the ridge axis moves overhead. Lows in the mid-upr 20s except 30-35 near the water. The high pushes off the NE coast Sun. This allows moisture to increase through the day as wind become SSE. Increasing clouds and milder with highs upr 40s NW to upr 50s SE.

Moisture quickly overspreads the area Sun nite due to a s/w trof moving up from SSE. Chc eve PoPs increase to likely after midnite across the west. Hints at an insitu-wedge across the Piedmont. Lows upr 30s NW to near 50 SE.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 345 PM EST Thursday .

The aforementioned trough aloft quickly amplifies across the Plains early next week as sfc low pressure deepens as it tracks from the Plains to the Great Lakes. A series of upper disturbances will continue to track toward/across the region through Tue as the associated cold front slowly approaches from the W/NW. Strong WAA will continue through Tue (850 mb temps rising to 8-12C by 12z Tue) under deep-layered SW flow. With the area likely remaining in the warm sector from Mon-Tue, expect a good chc of (occasional) showers to continue from Mon through Tue. Have high chc-likely PoPs through much of this time period, as it is too far out to be specific with the exact timing of each occurrence of showers. Mild Monday w/ highs in the upper 50s to around 60F in the piedmont west of RIC, with low-mid 60s E of I-95.

The frontal passage likely holds off until sometime during the latter half of the day on Tue. As a result, look for highs well into the 60s on Tuesday . with the potential for some low 70s in Hampton Roads/NE NC with any aftn sun. High-end chc PoPs continue through the day on Tue with some post-frontal RA possible Tue night-early Wed (especially SE). Lows Tue night range from the mid 30s north/west to the low 40s in SE VA/NE NC.

Strong high pressure builds into the Great Lakes by midweek, but it quickly migrates eastward (becoming centered over New England by Thursday evening). This will result in a short-lived period of below average temperatures on Wed/Thu, due to cold Canadian air sweeping across the region behind the departing front. Forecast highs are mainly in the 40s on Wed/Thu, although mid- upper 30s are possible across central/nrn zones. Model consensus is forecasting the high to move offshore of the New England Coast on Fri as low pressure develops near the Gulf Coast (which will likely impact the ern CONUS by next weekend).

AVIATION /09Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 1245 AM EST Friday .

VFR conditions continue through the forecast period. High level clouds assctd with an upr lvl systm crosses RIC/SBY this morning with a mid level cloud deck expected to overspread the region throughout the day ahead of a cold front progged to cross the area this eve. Models show little if any moisture with the fropa, a lght shwr psbl at ECG after 00Z at most. SW winds ahead of the front may gust to btwn 15-20 kts later today.

OUTLOOK . Winds turn to the W/NW behind the front and remain gusty at times along the coast. High pressure then builds in for the weekend. VFR conditions are expected through the weekend.

MARINE. As of 345 AM EST Friday .

Light onshore flow this morning under 5 kts as high pressure sits just off the Carolina coast. Waves in the bay are less than a foot and seas in the near shore coastal waters are only around a foot. SW winds will increase beginning this morning ahead of an approaching cold front that will cross the area overnight Friday into early Saturday. Expect winds 10-15 kts in the bay and 15-20 kts in the middle and lower coastal waters. SCA goes into effect for the northern coastal waters off the eastern shore at 18Z today as gusts this afternoon will be 25-30 kts. Waves in the bay build to 2-3 ft and seas 2-4 ft northern coastal waters and 2-3 ft southern coastal waters.

Winds become N/NW late Friday into early Saturday after the front crosses the area waters. Winds increase to 15-20 kts in the bay with gusts to 25 kts, and 20-25 kts with gusts to around 30 kts in the coastal waters. Waves in the bay build to 2-4 ft and seas build to 3- 5 ft in the middle and northern coastal waters and 4-6 ft in the southern coastal waters. SCA will be in effect for the bay, rivers, coastal waters, and Currituck sound from early Saturday morning through early Saturday afternoon, lingering into Saturday evening for the southern coastal waters and Currituck sound.

Winds along with waves/seas will subside by late Saturday night as the pressure gradient relaxes and high pressure builds into the area for the remainder of the weekend.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

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