Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC 328 PM EDT Thu Jul 2 2020

SYNOPSIS. Upper level trough will continue push offshore through tomorrow while surface high pressure remains in control. A weak boundary will be over/near our area Saturday dissipating into early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/. Latest surface analysis show high pressure centered over the western great Lakes, while aloft, a trough is located over NE CONUS. Northerly flow is observed at the surface with temperatures generally in the mid to upper 80s. Dry conditions expected for the rest of today and tonight as high pressure remains in control. Low temperatures tonight will be in the 60s and 70s.

Trough aloft will slowly push east through Friday as surface flow becomes westerly. High temperatures on Friday are expected to reach the 90s across most of our region, with some areas reaching the mid to upper 90s and heat index values in the upper 90s. Most of the area is expected to remain dry, but with pulses of shortwave energy towards our NE could bring a few showers near Baltimore metro on Friday evening. Dry conditions expected Friday night with lows in the 60s and 70s.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT/. Weak low pressure will be sitting offshore on Saturday, along with a weak boundary over our region, plus shortwave energy aloft and easterly flow. Current models show CAPE values near a 1000 J/kg but with weak shear. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon and evening, with latest trend focusing more over central Virginia, but chances remain over all of our CWA. High temperatures will reach the upper 80s and 90s across our area. Heat index values will reach the mid to upper 90s over some location. Dry conditions expected Saturday night with low temperatures in the 60s and 70s.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. A lingering boundary over central Virginia could spawn a few thunderstorms Sunday. Temperatures are expected to be slightly lower than previous days. Highs generally in the upper 80s to near 90.

The main storm flow will remain nearly the same throughout next week. Daytime heating and higher humidities will fuel showers and thunderstorms each afternoon and evening. Highs will reach the 90s each day with heat index values in the 90s and approaching 100 each afternoon.

AVIATION /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. VFR conditions expected through Saturday night. A few isolated thunderstorms are possible on Saturday and could bring restrictions over some of the terminals.

VFR conditions expected through Tuesday. Any showers and thunderstorms could drop conditions to MVFR briefly. Winds southeast to south around 5 knots, gusty in thunderstorms.

MARINE. Wind gusts are expected to remain below criteria through Saturday night. Short periods of gusty winds are possible each day but not confident enough to issue an advisory. May resolve with a Marine Weather Statement.

No marine hazards expected Sunday and Monday night. Winds southeast 5 to 10 knots, gusty in thunderstorms.

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.
