SYNOPSIS. A cold front will move through tonight. A reinforcing front will move through tomorrow, with high pressure building in its wake for the first half of the weekend. Additional low pressure systems may impact the region from Sunday into the early to middle portions of next week as troughing becomes established over the eastern half of the country.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/. 9:15 PM UPDATE: A line of discrete thunderstorms, leftover from a MCS across the Ohio Valley this afternoon/evening, is pushing towards the Allegheny Front at this time. With sunset, we are beginning to generally lose instability across the entire area, however, this particular area still hasn't really been worked over form previous convection today, so there seems to be just enough to get a few intense storms. To this point, any convection that has approached the Allegheny Front this evening has quickly weakened. However, can't rule out that these storms stay a bit more organized, with perhaps a severe storm or two over the next hour or two. Do think this activity tapers off quickly as it hits the mountains though.

The cold front is still over the Ohio valley, but it will move southward through the area during the second half of the overnight, bringing and end to any thunderstorm chances after midnight.

SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/. By daybreak tomorrow, the cold front will be situated just to our south, and will continue to push further to our south throughout the day. Much drier air will gradually advect into the area in northwesterly flow behind the front, with dewpoints dropping from the upper 60s around daybreak to the 50s by evening. Cold advection aloft will largely be offset by diurnal heating, with high temperatures still climbing into the mid to upper 80s. Mostly sunny skies are expected along with a northwesterly breeze. Winds may gust to in excess of 20 mph during the afternoon hours.

A reinforcing cold front will move through tomorrow night, with cooler and even drier air moving into the are in its wake. Lows Friday night will dip into the 50s across the northwestern half of the forecast area, with lower 60s across the southeastern half of the area.

A mix of sun and some high clouds is expected on Saturday as high pressure builds over the Ohio Valley. Winds will be lighter compared to tomorrow. Temperatures will only reach into the upper 70s to lower 80s, and dewpoints will drop into the upper 40s and lower 50s, leading to an uncharacteristically cool day for late July, with well below normal humidity values.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. A mid-level trough of low pressure and a surface front will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms Sunday. Highs in the middle 80s.

Weak high pressure will build in behind the front and bring dry and slightly cooler temperatures into the region Sunday night and Monday. Highs Monday lower to middle 80s.

As for Tuesday and Wednesday, a variety of uncertainties expected with a possible front dropping in from the northwest, a possible coastal low to the south and southeast, and timing of each. Should the front win out on verifying, then severe weather could be possible mainly in the western and central zones. If the coastal low wins, then more of a persistent modest rain could evolve which could lead to some localized flooding in the heaviest activities. Highs each day will be in the middle to upper 80s.

AVIATION /01Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. VFR conditions are expected tonight through Saturday. Winds may gust to around 20 knots out of the northwest tomorrow afternoon. Lighter winds are expected on Saturday as high pressure builds toward the area from the Ohio Valley.

Isolated showers or a thunderstorm near a few of the terminals could reduce conditions to MVFR briefly; otherwise, VFR conditions expected Sunday through Monday night. Winds southwest 5 to 10 knots Sunday, becoming northwest 5 knots Sunday night. Winds northwest becoming northeast 5 to 10 knots Monday. Winds light and variable Monday night.

MARINE. Small Craft Advisory remains in effect for our southern Bay zones tonight. SCA winds are expected again tomorrow in northwesterly flow behind a cold front, and this will be for all waters. Have extended that SCA into tomorrow night with this package, as a reinforcing cold front moves through. Lighter west to northwesterly winds are expected over the waters on Saturday.

No marine hazards expected Sunday through Monday night. Winds southwest 10 knots Sunday, then northwest becoming northeast 5 to 10 knots Sunday night and Monday. Winds light and variable Monday night.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Southerly flow ahead of an approaching cold front will result in some locations reaching action stage through tonight. Minor flooding is forecast at Annapolis, albeit barely, so a Coastal Flood Advisory was added with this package as well. As the winds become northwest behind the front on Friday, the anomalies will decrease quickly.
