Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC 853 PM EDT Sat May 30 2020

SYNOPSIS. A secondary cold front will press through the area tonight as high pressure over the Upper Midwest builds eastward through early next week. Low pressure passing north of the Great Lakes will aim to lift a warm front through the area the middle portion of next week. A cold front may approach the region thereafter, potentially stalling to our south heading into next weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/. No changes necessary to going forecast. The secondary front has pushed through most of the area, returning dewpoints to the lower 50s. Still have higher humidity levels in central Virginia and along the Bay but this should be short-lived. Low temperatures will bottom out in the upper 40s in the mountains to mid-upper 50s in the cities and near the Bay as dry conditions persist.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. High pressure centered over the Upper Midwest on Sunday will build southeastward toward and over the region through Monday night. Mostly clear skies, below normal temperatures, and dry conditions will be the resultant weather. Highs Sunday and Monday will hold in the low to middle 70s, with overnight lows falling back into 40s to middle 50s. Low temperatures in the 30s not out of the question Sunday night in the higher elevations of the Alleghenies.

Mid-upper level clouds will increase Monday night as we reside on the eastern periphery of an upper ridge and a weak shortwave seems poised to drop southeastward from the Great Lakes. Will hold on to a dry forecast Monday night, but wouldn't be surprised if low end chance POPs sneak in at some point, at least across northern Maryland and eastern West Virginia.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. There will be a chance of showers Tue preceding a warm frontal passage Wed. It should turn very warm to hot Wed with high temperatures in the low 90s. Isold afternoon convection is possible Wed in hot and humid air mass and again Thu as cold front crosses the region. Front is expected to drop south Fri, but high pressure building behind isn't very strong with pressure values in the 1013- 1015 mb range. This typically isn't strong enough to push cold fronts through the area in the summertime.

AVIATION /01Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. VFR dominates tonight through Monday and winds continue to trend northerly. Winds will gust upwards of 20 knots Sunday morning and early afternoon before relaxing. High pressure will build over the terminals Sunday night through Monday night, with continued light winds and dry conditions expected.

Increasing shower chances on Tuesday as high pressure shifts offshore and a warm front lifts toward the region, and winds turn southerly. Shower/storm chances continue Wednesday into Thursday, with brief periods of sub VFR conditions plausible.

MARINE. A reinforcing cold front will push through the region tonight, delivering gusty northwest winds in its wake Sunday morning and early Sunday afternoon. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the main stem of the Chesapeake Bay and adjoining estuaries after midnight and into midday Sunday. Have opted to add the lower tidal Potomac to the Advisory area.

Thereafter, high pressure will build over the waters Sunday night through Monday night with mainly light northerly winds. Cooler temperatures Sunday night into early Monday morning may allow for enough mixing to occur under northerly channeling over the main stem of the Bay. An SCA may be needed for a portion of the waters as a result, but confidence is not high enough at this time.

Primarily sub-SCA conditions expected on Tuesday as temperatures warm and the flow turns more southerly as high pressure migrates off the coast. The gradient increases Wednesday and Wednesday night as low pressure tracks well north of the waters and a frontal boundary approaches from the north as well. This will bring the threat for afternoon/evening showers and storms, which may require the issuance of Special Marine Warnings.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
