AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wakefield VA 245 AM EDT Wed Jun 19 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure currently off the northern Mid Atlantic coast slowly shifts south through the end of the week. A very warm and dry pattern will continue this week, with very hot weather expected this weekend with widespread mid to upper 90s.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
As of 245 AM EDT Wednesday...

Key Message:

- Relatively pleasant weather is expected today with seasonably warm temperatures in the 80s to 90 degrees.

~1030mb sfc high pressure is centered well offshore of the northern Mid-Atlantic coast early this morning with a 597dm upper high just north of the local area. Very warm, dry, but pleasant wx will prevail today with the flow increasing out of the ESE with the high offshore. High temps top out around 90F inland with lower to mid 80s near the immediate coast. Dew points in the 60s will result in heat indices fairly close to actual temps. The surface and upper ridge axis start to slowly shift south later today-tonight and will be over the local area by early Thu AM. Lows fall into the lower-mid 60s in most areas.

SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
As of 245 AM EDT Wednesday...

Key Messages:

- Pleasant weather with seasonably warm temperatures on Thursday.

- Turning warmer and a little more humid for Friday.

Still pleasant on Thu with dry wx and seasonably warm temperatures as the high pressure ridge remains in control. Highs will be a couple degrees warmer on Thursday when compared to today as the ridge axis at the sfc and aloft continues to shift southward. Temps will top out in the lower 90s with relatively low dew points in the low-mid 60s.

The heat will start to build on Friday as the sfc and upper ridge axis shift to our south, leading to the warmer 850mb temps currently over the Ohio Valley to move over the middle Atlantic. Winds become more southerly across inland areas on Friday, while remaining SSE near the immediate coast. Forecast highs are in the mid 90s in central VA with upper 80s-lower 90s closer to the coast and in NE NC. Dew points will be a little bit higher on Fri (mid 60s) but max heat indices should remain a few degrees below 100F.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/
As of 245 AM EDT Wednesday...

Key Messages:

- Building heat through the weekend with dangerous heat index values approaching 105F or greater by Sunday.

- A weakening frontal system may bring isolated to widely scattered showers or storms on Sun night into Tuesday, but the confidence in widespread rainfall remains low.

The main story this weekend will be the heat as the ridge axis becomes more suppressed to our south and the low-level flow becomes SSW area-wide, which will lead to even warmer 850mb temps/low-level thicknesses. Highs on Saturday will make a run at 100F inland, while Sunday looks to be the hottest day of the period with forecast highs around 100F across central VA with mid-upper 90s near the coast.
While the recent dry weather will help to keep dew pts a bit lower than they could be (mid 60s-lower 70s), heat index values of 100- 105F are still expected on Sat with more widespread 105F+ heat indices possible on Sunday. In addition, WBGT values will be in the 85-88F range on both days. These conditions will likely warrant a Heat Advisory for much of the area this weekend. Other than a chance for isolated to widely scattered tstms Sun evening-Sun night, the dry wx will continue. Confidence for temps on Monday is lower than the weekend due to the potential for scattered tstms (mainly during the latter part of the day) and more clouds as a weakening frontal system approaches. Highs Monday will most likely be a few degrees lower than they will be on Sunday. Still seasonably hot with lower precip chances on Tuesday as the weakening front washes out near/over the area.

Regardless of any tstm chances in the forecast, it still does not look promising for widespread rainfall, as many places will see little to no rain through the period. In fact, 01z NBM probabilities for at least 0.50" of total rainfall from Sun-Tue are only 10-40% over the local area.

AVIATION /07Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
As of 130 AM EDT Wednesday...

VFR conditions will continue for the next 24 hours and beyond. Skies will be clear for most of the morning before becoming partly to mostly sunny with cumulus (~5000 ft AGL).
Expect winds to become ESE/SE 5-10 kt (~10 kt closer to the coast) today. Mainly clear tonight with light/variable winds.

Dry and VFR conditions are expected to prevail through Saturday as high pressure remains centered off the coast.

MARINE
As of 245 AM EDT Wednesday...

Key Messages:

- Benign marine conditions expected through most of this week. A few gusts to 20 kt again possible in the Chesapeake Bay later this afternoon and evening.

- Moderate rip current risk at all areas beaches today.

Light SE flow this morning of 5-10 kt. The pattern through most of this week will be typical of summer and relatively benign as high pressure remains offshore. Winds for the daylight hours today will remain out of the ESE/SE at ~10 kt. Similar to the previous few days, we will likely see some enhancement to 10-15 kt (with a few gusts to 20 kt) in the lower Chesapeake Bay and over area rivers late this afternoon and evening as sea breezes become established.
Very similar conditions Thursday. Winds shift to and become predominantly southerly later Friday into Saturday as the high offshore meanders south and anchors SE of the area. More robust southerly winds potentially develop Saturday evening/overnight and especially Sunday-Sunday night as a trough of low pressure approaches the area from the NW. At this time, small craft advisories look like a decent bet for most of the waters during this period due to both winds and seas. Winds slowly subside early next week behind the associated cold front.

Seas are 2-3 ft and waves 1 ft or less this morning. Waves in the lower bay increase to ~2 ft this afternoon/evening. Otherwise, seas and waves of ~3 ft and 1-2 ft are forecast through Saturday, respectively. With the increased southerly flow Sunday and Sunday night, seas are expected to build, especially across the northern waters. Current forecast shows 4-6 ft N and 3-4 ft S.

Rip current risk is moderate at all beaches today with SE swell energy and 2-3 ft nearshore waves. Periods increase to around 8 sec Thursday with waves at the beaches remaining around 3 ft, suggesting a continuing moderate rip risk. An elevated rip risk likely continues through the upcoming weekend (highest threat across the north).
