Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC 1009 AM EDT Mon Jun 17 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will remain anchored offshore through the week. A warm front will lift northeastward across the Mid-Atlantic today, marking the beginning of a prolonged period of heat.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
Not much change to the previous forecast. Some showers along a warm front continue to move through West Virginia, though the showers are not moving into a favorable air mass so are slowly dissipating as they move east. Behin the warm front, the region will reside in an increasingly hot and humid airmass.

Prior to ridging and associated subsidence building aloft, enough heat and instability should build in the vicinity of a lee trough developing near/west of I-81. This will occur this afternoon around the backside of the departing surface high, and may result in scattered showers and thunderstorms. Given weak low and mid-level flow, convection will move slowly and/or lock to nearby terrain, resulting in a localized heavy rainfall threat. FFG is relatively high (2.5-4" in 1-3 hours), though slow storm motions and higher PWs could result in totals close to these values in a reasonable high-end scenario. Given the dry antecedent conditions and the somewhat conditional nature of the threat, no Flood Watch has been issued at this time. The increased heat and steepening low-level lapse rates could also aid in a few localized strong downbursts/gusty to perhaps damaging surface winds. Convection chances are highest near and west of the Blue Ridge Mountains and south of US-50 from around midday through early this evening.

Elsewhere, a dry and hot day is expected. Humidity will increase, but won't be quite oppressive by early summer Mid- Atlantic standards. This should result in heat index values around or a degree or two higher than the air temperatures - generally in the lower to middle 90s.

Low temperatures tonight will be in the 60s to lower 70s under a partly to mostly clear sky.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/
Ridging will build aloft Tuesday into Wednesday. Subsidence could be weak enough to allow a few isolated showers or thunderstorms to develop near the Appalachians Tuesday afternoon, but most of the time/area will just be dry and hot.
Temperatures will trend upward a bit Tuesday, then decrease slightly Wednesday as the center of the ridge reorients itself to the north and low-level flow pivots to off relatively cooler water. High temperatures in the upper 80s to middle 90s and lows in the 60s to lower 70s are expected during this time.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
Highly anomalous upper level ridging along the East Coast will slowly start to break down during the second half of the week, with flow aloft becoming more zonal in nature next weekend. As this occurs, the 850 hPa high to our northeast will also start to break down, allowing 850 hPa flow to shift from east-southeasterly on Thursday, to southwesterly next weekend. As 850 hPa flow gains a westerly component, an increasingly continental airmass will move over the region, leading to an increase in temperatures, despite the falling heights aloft.

The strong upper ridge should suppress any convection on Thursday and Friday, leading to sunny skies both days. As temperatures rise at the surface and cool aloft, chances for popup afternoon and evening thunderstorms will return this coming weekend. Thunderstorm activity looks to remain relatively isolated on Saturday in the absence of appreciable large scale forcing for ascent. By Sunday, height falls associated with a trough tracking through the Great Lakes may lead to greater chances for thunderstorms.

The main story through the long term period will be the heat.
Temperatures are expected to reach into the lower 90s on Thursday.
The hottest temperatures of this week's heat wave are expected to occur on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. High temperatures those days should make it into the mid-upper 90s, with around 100 possible in some spots. Overnight lows will also increase from the upper 60s to near 70 on Thursday night, to the mid-upper 70s by Saturday night.

AVIATION /14Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
VFR conditions are expected to prevail at the TAF sites through at least the first half of the week. A shower or thunderstorm could approach KCHO/KMRB this afternoon or early evening. If it does, brief restrictions would be possible (as would patchy fog later tonight into early Tuesday morning). Winds will generally be southerly to southeasterly at 6-12 kts with occasional daytime gusts to around 18 kts. Eastern terminal likely experience some river/bay breeze influence during the afternoon and early evening hours each day.

VFR conditions and southerly winds are expected at the terminals on Thursday and Friday.

MARINE
South to southeast winds will prevail through much of the upcoming week. Southerly channeling combined with bay/river breeze enhancements likely result in SCA level gusts each afternoon and evening. Otherwise, dry and hot weather is expected through the week.

Low-end SCA level winds appear possible in channeled southerly flow during the afternoon/evening hours of Thursday and Friday.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING
Persistent southerly flow continues, and tidal anomalies are hovering near one foot above normal. This is enough to result in near minor flooding, particularly during the overnight high tide cycle near Annapolis the next couple of days.

CLIMATE
Hot temperatures are expected much of this coming week and especially this coming weekend. We could see a few records broken on Tuesday, but the hottest days appear to be Friday through Sunday when several records could be in jeopardy. Below is a list of record high temperatures for June 18th, 21st, and 22nd, the year the record was set, and the current forecast high temperatures for those days.
