Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC 916 AM EDT Sat Jun 12 2021

SYNOPSIS. Weak high pressure will build into the area by this afternoon. A cold front will approach Sunday before crossing the region late Sunday night into early Monday resulting in renewed chances for showers and thunderstorms. A second cold front is expected to cross the region late Monday night into early Tuesday, and a third cold front late Tuesday night into Wednesday. High pressure will resume control for a few days thereafter coupled with cooler temperatures and lower humidity.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Latest surface analysis shows yesterday's stationary boundary well to our south as low pressure continues to shift out to sea. Some low clouds, patchy fog, and mist still linger across the region this morning given the abundance of moisture received over the last two days. However with a northerly wind being slightly faster than what overnight guidance was indicating, think that we will start to see some partial sunshine sooner than later as clearing ensues from north to south.

A mix of sun and clouds is expected for the remainder of the afternoon with light winds out of the north. For now, temperatures are expected to remain in the upper 70s to low 80s; slightly below normal for June standards. However depending on the amount of sunshine that arises this afternoon, may need to raise temperatures a few degrees.

A weak boundary will push southward out of PA late today. Some of the hi-res guidance indicated pop-up showers for late this afternoon/evening across the PA/MD border. However with dry mid levels, weak instability, and weak forcing believe it will remain dry overnight into Sunday morning under a fair sky. Overnight lows expected to drop into the low to mid 60s across the region.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. . PREVIOUS DISCUSSION . Warm air will begin to push back northeastward into the region Sunday as a cold front approaches from the northwest. This front will cross the region late Sunday night into early Monday. Very quickly on its heels another cold front will move into the region Monday night.

With warm advection Sunday, highs should rebound well into the 80s. Instability will build, with significant CAPE potential by late afternoon. As the cold front approaches, this may help spawn a squall line to our northwest, which will then move into our region near or after sunset. Enough CAPE and shear are present to result in a marginal severe weather outlook across our region, especially northwest of I-95. The main threat will be damaging winds.

Showers may linger through Sunday night, with lows in the 60s. The front will be slow to clear the area Monday morning, and we could even still have a few showers around at dawn. The sun should break through for a time thereafter, but a stronger front and upper trough will then approach late Monday into Monday night, potentially accompanied by a wave of low pressure. This will result in another risk of showers and thunderstorms Monday night. Between the two fronts, highs will warm well into the 80s, providing some more fuel for said showers/storms.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. With a surface cold front to the southeast on Tuesday, a mid- level trough of low pressure will pivot across the region. A chance for a couple of showers or perhaps a thunderstorm will exist Tuesday into Tuesday evening before another cold front moves through.

High pressure will build in Wednesday through Friday, bringing dry and seasonable temperatures each day. Temperatures could climb to near 90 degrees on Friday in most areas.

AVIATION /13Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. IFR to MVFR conditions with upslope easterly moist flow persisting early this morning. Expect conditions to break with VFR becoming widespread by late afternoon. Patchy fog could then redevelop late tonight with VFR returning by midday. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible with a cold frontal passage late Sunday afternoon and Sunday night. Drying Monday with VFR before another cold front threatens to bring a few more showers and storms Monday night.

VFR conditions Tuesday through Wednesday night. Winds northwest 5 to 10 knots few higher gusts through the period.

MARINE. Easterly flow will remain at marginal SCA levels through early afternoon across the middle bay and adjacent waterways. Thereafter, expect mostly sub-SCA winds through the next few days, despite several weak cold frontal passages. However, a few gusty thunderstorms could affect the waters with said frontal passages, particularly Sunday evening.

No marine hazards expected Tuesday through Wednesday night. Winds northwest around 10 knots.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Easterly flow has helped build water levels at the mouth of the bay which have translated northward up the bay. Minor flooding is now expected at most sites through the next day or so. The return of northwest flow behind a series of cold fronts should allow water levels to start subsiding early next week.

LWX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. DC . Coastal Flood Advisory until 1 PM EDT this afternoon for DCZ001. MD . Coastal Flood Advisory until noon EDT today for MDZ011.
