Synopsis
A weak surface boundary will linger over the area through the
middle of the week. Southerly flow will continue to usher in hot
and humid conditions into the region during this time. A cold
front will sweep through the area during the second half of the
week, with canadian high pressure building in for the weekend.

Near term through tonight
Currently, weak high pressure is situated over the region as a
cold front bisects the great lakes. Ongoing showers and
thunderstorms are tracking eastward into western pennsylvania
this morning, with a general decrease in intensity as they near
northern west virginia. Skies are partly cloudy with high clouds
from the aforementioned activity streaming over the allegheny
mountains. Temperatures across the area range from the middle
60s to lower 70s. Some patchy fog and lower visiblities are
starting to show on satellite and in surface observations over
the shenandoah valley. This will continue to be the case through
sunrise, although widespread dense fog is not expected. Have
kept a slight chance of a shower across the potomac highlands
early this morning, but as guidance is hinting, this activity
will struggle to make much progress east of the mountains.

The main story today will be the building heat and humidity.

With mid to upper level heights continuing to rise as high
pressure over the atlantic maintains a moist southerly flow over
the mid atlantic, temperatures will surge well into the 90s
this afternoon. Coupled with dewpoints generally in the lower
70s, we'll see heat indices crack the 100 degree mark along and
east of the blue ridge, but likely remain just under advisory
criteria. Locations in stafford king george spotsylvania
counties, as well as southern maryland will have the best shot
of nearing criteria, but confidence in occurrence and duration
was just not there to proceed with a heat advisory at this time.

Further north into the dc baltimore metros, chances of reaching
criteria lessens further. Regardless, it will be very hot
today, and those spending time outdoors should be sure to
practice heat safety by taking frequent breaks in the
shade indoors and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.

The second weather feature of interest today will be isolated
to widely scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Latest
guidance favors northern central virginia and across southern
maryland with the best coverage later this afternoon, lingering
into early this evening. This is supported by a weak undulation
in the mid-levels, but not much else synoptically speaking.

Given temperatures well into the 90s, dewpoints in the low 70s,
there will be sufficient instability (1500-2500 j kg) to help
get some storms going this afternoon. 0-6km shear and steering
flow will be weak, so storms will track along any mesoscale and
outflow boundaries. As with the past couple of days, any storms
that do develop will have the potential to bring down some gusty
winds and hail. Convection will wane this evening with the loss
of daytime heating, patchy fog again will be possible overnight
as temperatures remain mild in the upper 60s to middle 70s.

Short term Tuesday through Wednesday night
A deeper and stronger shortwave tracks across the area on
Tuesday as height falls commence, resulting in better coverage
of showers and thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Temperatures have the potential to challenge those expected
today, however increased cloud cover may limit that potential.

That being said, increasing instability with 2000-3000 j kg of
mucape and steeping mid-level lapse rates will be enough to
support strong to severe storms. Shear continues to be meager at
20kts or less, but given shortwave support, scattered showers
and thunderstorms looks likely. Also, given the humid airmass in
place and elevated pwats (1.5-2.0"), heavy rain resulting in
isolated instances of flooding will also be possible.

Convection again wanes Tuesday evening with some showers
lingering overnight. On Wednesday, a cold front will be
approaching the ohio valley as heights continue to fall over the
area. Showers and thunderstorms will again be possible
Wednesday afternoon and evening, with the potential for strong
to severe storms once again on the table given plenty of
instability and a bit more synoptic forcing nearing the mid
atlantic. Temperatures a touch cooler on Wednesday, but still
above normal for the latter half of august, topping out in the
upper 80s to middle 90s.

Long term Thursday through Sunday
A cold front will finally arrive from the northwest to break the
heat wave on Thursday. The risk of thunderstorms will be highest
this day, mainly in the afternoon and evening. Latest guidance
continues to slow the progress of the front, with both the ecmwf
and ggem stalling it nearby Friday, resulting in showers and
thunderstorms. The GFS still insists the front dives well south
by Friday, but this is starting to look less likely. By
Saturday, majority of guidance pushes the front southward enough
to bring dry weather as canadian high pressure builds from the
north, but the ec is so slow thanks to a passing low pressure
wave that some rain could linger early. Sunday is now the best
looking day this weekend, with high pressure likely firmly in
control.

Aviation 08z Monday through Friday
Episodes of subVFR conditions possible each afternoon and
evening through Wednesday in passing showers and thunderstorms,
some of which could be strong to severe. Patchy fog will also
yield reduced vsby's (MVFR ifr) during the early morning hours,
especially near the terminals that receive rainfall the day
prior. Outside of convection, winds will be light and south
southwesterly through Wednesday.

Thursday will feature a higher risk of thunderstorms compared to
Friday thanks to a passing cold front, but the risk will
continue Friday if the front stalls.

Marine
Sub SCA conditions expected through the first half of Wednesday
as light southerly flow prevails. Thereafter, southerly flow
increases as a cold front approaches from the northwest, with
sca gusts possible late Wednesday afternoon and overnight.

Showers and thunderstorms will also be possible each afternoon
and evening, bringing the potential for strong gusty winds and
hail. Highest coverage of storms over the waters will be on
Tuesday and again on Wednesday.

Sca may continue Thursday as front approaches, but may abate
Friday, especially if the front stalls.

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.
