Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC 257 PM EST Fri Dec 1 2023

SYNOPSIS
Precipitation will continue to overspread the area through this evening. Abundant cloud cover, above normal temperatures, and additional rain chances are expected this weekend as weak waves of low pressure push through. A strong cold front and area of low pressure look to pass through the region Monday and Tuesday before high pressure returns by the middle of next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/
Precipitation will continue to overspread the area through the remainder of the day as a result of moisture associated with a low pressure system centered across the lower Mississippi Valley. The trough axis will continue to push through the area through the evening hours tonight, allowing rain chances to slowly dissipate from west to east. The only exception would be across portions of the Allegheny Front where lingering low- level moisture will reside into Saturday.

Overall, QPF totals for today will mostly be in the order of a quarter of an inch or less. High temperatures will not increase much more this afternoon, with upper 40s to low 50s across most locations. Clouds should continue to stick around, even after the rain tonight. Some patchy fog will be possible in some areas overnight but guidance has continued to have variability with respect to what locations have the better opportunities for it.
Overnight lows will fall into the upper 30s to low 40s for most areas, with upper 40s to low 50s expected for areas along the shorelines.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/
A break in the majority of the precipitation is expected during portions of the day on Saturday, with southerly advection building in. Highs for the day will likely be 5 to 10 degrees warmer than normal for this time of year, with most areas in the low 60s with 50s across the higher terrain. Precipitation likely starts to build back in by the mid to late afternoon hours from the SW to NE as a low pressure system further south continues to move eastward.
Locally heavier instances of rain will be possible with this system overnight, with QPF totals of a quarter of an inch to half an inch in localized areas. Overnight lows on Saturday will drop down into the upper 40s to low 50s for most areas with light winds out of the east. Some guidance is hinting at the potential for dense fog in localized areas Saturday night as the bulk of the precipitation exits the area.

Sunday looks to be an overcast day with a lot of lingering moisture and drizzle around as the low pressure continues to move nearby.
Highs will be similar to Saturday, with upper 50s to low 60s being most common across the region aside from the higher elevations where the upper 40s to low 50s are expected. The low pressure system will eventually exit the area late Sunday and into early Monday morning, leading to clearing skies for most areas. The exception will be across the Alleghenies where a light rain/snow mix will be possible overnight. Overnight lows Sunday night will drop down into the low to mid 30s for the Allegheny Front, with slightly warmer temperatures further east.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
Ridging will be pivoting eastward across the Rockies while a trailing shortwave trough digs across the Ohio/Tennessee River Valleys during the first half of next week. Although the ridge- trough pattern is briefly favorable for unsettled weather in the Mid- Atlantic, the pattern itself is transient. Therefore, the potential for impactful wintry weather remains high uncertain and generally low probability east of the Appalachians at the moment, but still bears monitoring.

Behind this trough, a brief reinforcing shot of cooler than normal temperatures looks to traverse the region through about Thursday, before temperatures begin to rebound toward the end of next week as the aforementioned ridge from the Rockies approaches the East Coast.

AVIATION /20Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
MVFR ceilings and visibilities will be common the remainder of the day. LLWS will be possible for most terminals east of KMRB this afternoon and through parts of the evening hours at around 2k feet with winds 35 to 40 kts out of the SW. These should taper off before midnight. There may be drops in visibilities overnight, especially across KMTN and KBWI where guidance is most favorable for patchy to isolated areas of dense fog. Confidence is fairly low at this point as to whether the winds diminish enough for the low stratus deck to make it further to the ground but we will continue to monitor this chance through the afternoon and evening hours.

Another round of MVFR to IFR ceilings will be possible later in the day on Saturday as a low pressure system to the south will continue to move eastward, bringing increase chances for precipitation for the terminals. Sub-VFR ceilings and visibilities are expected Sunday with drizzle expected throughout much of the day. These conditions will begin to improve by late Sunday and into early Monday morning.

Mainly VFR conditions are most likely during the first half of next week, though a few disturbances/waves of low pressure may pass near the area. Breezy W/NW flow with gusts of 15-20 kts is expected Monday into Tuesday.

MARINE
Sub-SCA winds are expected through the weekend, with directions shifting from the southwest to more easterly by Sunday afternoon. A few gusts up to 18 knots will be possible this afternoon briefly but should diminish by the evening hours.Gusty W/NW winds may breach SCA criteria Monday into Tuesday.
