SYNOPSIS

A cold front will drop southward through the area tonight, before returning northward as a warm front on Wednesday. A strong cold front will move through this weekend, with high pressure building in early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/

Severe Thunderstorrm Watch #109 is valid until 10 PM since it covers most of VA to the NC border, although storms are likely to exit our forecast around 7 PM. Very steep mid-level lapse rates of around 8C/km due to 500 mb temps of around -20C were observed on earlier upper air data and more recent MetOp-C NUCAPS data. This will contribute to a very favorable environment for large hail perhaps approaching significant hail up to 2 inches in diameter. Storms will be fast movers moving around 35 knots and given large dewpoint depressions and strond mid-level flow may be also capable of producing strong to damaging winds. Storms should exit our CWA by 8 PM, likely a little sooner than that.

Rapidly clearing skies are expected later this evening behind exiting cold front. High pressure builds over the area overnight into Tue morning with quiet conditions overnight through Tue morning.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/

Showers return Tuesday afternoon across southwest areas as front begins to return north as a warm front. Scattered showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms will spread northeast late Tue night/Wed morning as warm front attempts to lift through the area. More showers appear possible Wed night as occluded front crossest the area, although it isn't likely that it will be raining the whole time. It will be cooler Wed with highs around 70.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/

Models continue to show varying solutions regarding the synoptic pattern at the end of this week into the weekend. A weak disturbance and surface low over the area Thursday morning will bring a chance of showers, though rain chances are not particularly high at this time. After that, models vary on when/how fast a cold front sweeps through the area. The GFS is more progressive, showing a clean FROPA sometime Friday night, then high pressure building in from the north through the weekend. While the ECMWF, indicates a sagging front that slowly moves through the area making for a wet weekend.

The temperature forecast will be dependent on what happens with the aforementioned front. Currently have above normal highs in the low to mid 70s Thursday through Saturday, becoming near normal in the 60s for Sunday.

AVIATION /18Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/

Scattered showers are possible Thursday and Friday at all terminals, though any impacts are likely to be minimal. VFR conditions prevail, with brief periods of sub-VFR conditions possible in any heavy shower or storm. Northeast winds around 10kt, with some gusts to 20kt possible each afternoon.

MARINE

Near-SCA winds are possible in northeast flow Thursday afternoon over the open waters of the Chesapeake Bay, with gusts of 15kt or less elsewhere. A cold front will be near the area Friday, and could cross the waters by Friday night. Northeast to east winds will be around 10-15kt.
