Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC 1012 AM EDT Fri Aug 7 2020

SYNOPSIS. A frontal boundary will remain stalled just to the north of the region today. High pressure will build southeast toward the region over the weekend. Another frontal system may affect the region towards the middle of next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/. The stalled surface boundary remains started to the northwest of the I-95 corridor. The upper level trough continues to shift eastward this morning and will eventually kick out the stalled boundary later this evening. A few showers have been moving through western Maryland and parts of southern Maryland but these showers look to remains isolated over the next few hours. Think low and mid level cloud cover is in place over the majority of our area this morning. If these clouds linger the amount of heating our region receives may be lower which could limit the coverage and threat for thunderstorms.

However, with the main shortwave poised to move overhead this afternoon, another round of showers and thunderstorms looks likely as CAPE builds this afternoon. While shear is pretty marginal, enough should be present to produce at least some isolated damaging thunderstorms, while the available moisture and still relatively slow storm motion should allow for more locally heavy rains with a risk of flash flooding. It is possible that storms today are a bit more progressive than what we had yesterday, such that perhaps the highest risk of heavy rain may have passed, but with very moist ground, it won't take a lot for flooding. Highs today again in the 80s with lows tonight in the high 60s and 70s.

Shortwave passes overnight into early Saturday, with high pressure nudging southeast into the region later Saturday. While there will still be a little forcing and instability present, without the trough, storm coverage looks much lower than today, and more likely to be confined in southern and eastern portions of the forecast area. Highs again in the 80s, but likely a few degrees warmer with the additional sun. Enough dry air works in to drop the dew points a few degrees, but still mostly in the low 70s, so remaining humid.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. Very weak ridging will move over the region Saturday night through Sunday night. This should promote dry weather, though high humidity with dew points remaining near 70 or a little higher will still allow some isolated storms to fire in the afternoon. Should be lower coverage than even what we are expecting on Saturday, however, which will be much lower than today. With additional sun and the weak ridge, highs on Sunday should nudge towards 90 for the first time in several days, with heat indices approaching 100.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. High pressure will be moving offshore on Monday while ridging builds over SE CONUS aloft, and a quasi zonal pattern over us. At the surface the winds will become southerly over our area, which will advect warm and moist air into our region. This pattern will remain through mid week with pulses of shortwave aloft moving across our region. A warming trend will begin on Monday over our area, and with the increase in humidity, heat index values will be able to reach the low 100s over some areas on Tuesday and Wednesday. Additional, each day there will be a chance for afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms.

A cold front will approach our region Wednesday and stall near our area through the end of the week. Waves of low pressure will be tracking through it. This will keep the chance for showers and thunderstorms over our area for Wednesday through Friday.

AVIATION /14Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/.

Lower MVFR to IFR clouds have shifted over the majority of our terminals. CHO terminals to remain in IFR for at least the next few hours but I expect clouds to thin for the IAD and BWI terminals which should allow for return to VFR conditions.

. Previous discussion .

Guidance continues to suggest low clouds and fog may become problems in the next few hours before sunrise, but so far, minimal if any has formed at the terminals. After sunrise, these should wane, with showers and t-storms again being the main hazard this afternoon and evening. Perhaps a bit less risk of low clouds and fog on Saturday morning as drier air works into the region, with much less risk of showers and storms on Saturday and Sunday.

VFR conditions with afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms possible between Monday and Wednesday. This could bring temporary restrictions over the terminals.

MARINE. Winds generally sub-SCA thru the weekend, with the only significant hazard being thunderstorms with gusty winds. Biggest risk by far is today, but a few storms could affect the waters Saturday and Sunday afternoons as well.

Winds will remain below criteria between Monday and Wednesday. Afternoon/evening thunderstorms could bring gusty winds over the waters prompting Special Marine Warnings between Monday and Wednesday.

HYDROLOGY. Antecedent conditions plus high PW's and CAPE should promote more heavy rainers today. New Flash Flood Watch now in effect for areas which appear most prone to storms and flooding. Storms might have a bit more motion today which could limit the flood risk, but some areas will not take much at all given recent flooding.

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.
