AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 657 AM EDT Tue Sep 22 2020

SYNOPSIS. Strong high pressure will build into the region today and will stay over the region through midweek before pushing offshore later in the week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. As of 350 AM EDT Tuesday .

Surface high pressure extends from New England through the Mid- Atlantic region early this morning. Meanwhile, Hurricane Teddy is tracking nwd well E of the Mid-Atlantic coast. Aloft, an upper trough remains immediately off the East Coast, with an upstream ridge over the mid/lower Mississippi Valley. Clear for most of the area early this morning, aside from some ocean effect stratocumulus over the coasts of SE VA and NE NC. Cool for most of the area, with temperatures generally in the low/mid 40s, with some upper 30s in the Piedmont. Milder over SE VA/NE NC where temperatures are in the 50s, and even low 60s for the coasts of SE VA/NE NC.

High pressure will continue to build in to the region today, and this will result in a very pleasant day for the beginning of Fall, with the autumnal equinox occurring at 930 am EDT this morning. High temperatures will generally be in the low 70s under a sunny sky along with a light NW wind.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 350 AM EDT Tuesday .

Surface high pressure becomes centered over the Cumberland Plateau tonight as Hurricane Teddy moves nwd to Nova Scotia. The sky is expected to be mostly clear tonight, with forecast lows ranging from the mid 40s over the Piedmont, to the low/mid 50s (locally ~60F for coastal SE VA/NE NC) toward the coast where there will be some gradient in the pressure field will create some light mixing. The surface high gradually settles into the Southeast Conus by Wednesday. Little in the way of cloud cover is expected. However, HRRR smoke fields depict some smoke arriving in light NW flow aloft later tonight into Wednesday and this could result in at least a thin overcast aloft allowing for some dimming of the sun. The airmass modifies and forecast highs are in the mid upper 70s.

The upper ridge breaks down by Wednesday night/Thursday as the remnants of TC Beta move inland over the Gulf coast States. This should result in an increase of high clouds over the region, but still dry as high pressure off the coast prevails. Milder Wednesday night with lows in the 50s to low 60s. Highs Thursday are forecast to once again be in the mid/upper 70s.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 310 PM EDT Sunday .

Previously referenced shortwave trough pushes across late Thursday into Friday, allowing for scattered showers across the area (20-35% PoPs) through Friday, with best chances along and south of US-460 given latest information. Weak ridge of high pressure begins to develop by Saturday over the region ahead of a deepening trough to the west. The ridge and trough deepen through the weekend and into Monday as a low pressure system develops over the Great Lakes. The trough and associated cold front moves through the region Monday or Tuesday. The result of this amplified pattern will be an increase in at least isolated/widely scattered prefrontal precipitation chances from Saturday through at least Monday.

Highs generally in the upper 70s to around 80F through the extended. Lows Wednesday night will range from the low 50s NW to around 60F near the coast. Lows Thursday through Saturday nights will range from the mid to upper 50s W to the low 60s E. Lows Sunday night will range from the low 60s NW to the upper 60s SE.

AVIATION /12Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 655 AM EDT Tuesday .

1028mb high pressure is centered from New England through the Mid-Atlantic as of 11z. There is still some pressure gradient along the coast, and this is maintaining a northerly wind of 10-15kt at ECG and ORF. SCT ocean effect SC continue to linger near ECG with bases ~4.0kft. These clouds are expected to gradually dissipate through 14z. Sunny this morning into the aftn, then mostly clear tonight as high pressure spreads across the region. The wind will become WNW late morning into the aftn, with speeds of 8-12kt, and some gusts to 15-20kt at SBY. By tonight, the wind will become calm to very light (5kt or less) out of the W.

High pressure prevails across the region Wednesday and Thursday bringing dry and VFR conditions. High pressure moves offshore Friday into Saturday, with only a slight chc of showers at this time.

MARINE. As of 350 AM EDT Tuesday .

Latest analysis shows high pressure over the Mid Atlantic this morning, and Hurricane Teddy well off the east coast. Northerly winds 10-15 kts over the bay and northern coastal waters, and 15-20 kts over the southern coastal waters and Currituck sound. Despite Teddy being well offshore, the system is still resulting in significant waves/seas over the local area. Waves in the bay 3-5 ft, with around 6 ft at the mouth of the bay. Seas are running 8-12 ft over the northern coastal waters and 10-14 ft over the southern coastal waters.

The surface high slides to our SW today and Teddy continues to move NW. This will result in winds locally becoming NW. The pressure gradient continues to relax, with winds over the bay 10-15 kts and 15-20 kts over the coastal waters. Waves in the bay 2-4 ft and around 5 ft at the mouth of the bay. Seas will be slow to subside, and still expect 8-12 ft by late in the day. Several changes were made to headlines. The SCA's for the upper bay, lower James, and Currituck sound should be allowed to expire later this morning. The lower bay was extended to 23Z for elevated waves 4-5 ft expected to last much of the day. The SCA for the mouth of the bay was extended to 11Z Wednesday as waves there will be slow to subside. The coastal waters SCA currently goes until 11Z Wednesday and will likely be extended beyond that as seas will be slow to subside through mid week.

Hurricane Teddy is forecast to make landfall in the vicinity of Nova Scotia on Wednesday, and high pressure will linger in the TN valley. W/NW winds 10-15 kts are expected. Seas will continue to slowly subside and should fall under SCA criteria late Wednesday into early Thursday. Much calmer marine conditions expected for the end of the week into the weekend.

HYDROLOGY. As of 350 AM EDT Tuesday .

Flood Warnings remain in effect for the Nottoway River near Sebrell and the Blackwater River near Franklin. Flood Warnings will likely will remain in effect for at least the next day or two at these sites.

See FLWAKQ/FLSAKQ and weather.gov/AKQ for more site-specific information.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. As of 350 AM EDT Tuesday .

Tidal anomalies are running about 1-2 ft MLLW this morning. Meanwhile, the last flood/ebb cycle was around 1 kt. The coastal flood advisory for Currituck/Va Beach/Norfolk/Chesapeake was cancelled as levels did not reach minor flood stage during this high tide cycle. This afternoon's high tide is expected to be a bit higher which will likely push a portion of this area into minor flood, so another flood advisory will be hoisted later this morning. Coastal flood advisory remains in effect for the northern neck through 8 AM for minor flooding expected at Lewisetta.

Tidal departures are expected to eventually diminish by Wednesday as the flow becomes a bit stronger offshore, and swell from Teddy subsides/moves North of the region.

Swells enhanced by Hurricane Teddy (well offshore), with periods of ~15 seconds, and very large waves of 10-12 feet+ will make for very dangerous conditions at the Atlantic Beaches through Tuesday. In addition, there is dune/beach erosion potential, especially for more vulnerable locations with the high tide cycles today before conditions improve beginning on Wednesday. Beach Hazards Statements/High Rip Current Risk continue today and is forecast to remain high on Wednesday. A High Surf Advisory remains in effect for the Atlantic coast as waves in the surf zone range from 8-10ft North to 10-12ft South.

AKQ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. MD . High Surf Advisory until 4 PM EDT this afternoon for MDZ025. NC . Coastal Flood Advisory from 11 AM this morning to 4 PM EDT this afternoon for NCZ102. High Surf Advisory until 8 PM EDT this evening for NCZ102. VA . Coastal Flood Advisory from 1 PM this afternoon to 7 PM EDT this evening for VAZ089-090-093-096-524-525.
