Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC 326 PM EDT Sat Apr 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will remain in control through early Sunday. Weak cold front will then move through Sunday night and stall just to our south into Monday as it weakens. Frontal boundaries will impact our region by the middle of the week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Northerly to northeasterly winds are observed over our region while clouds remain over the eastern portion of our CWA due to low level moist advection. Weak surface high pressure is currently in control and will remain in control through tonight allowing for dry conditions. Lows tonight will be in the mid 40s across our region.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. Isolated to scattered showers are possible Sunday into early Monday (from west to east) as a weak cold front approaches and moves through our region Sunday night. High res guidance brings the highest amount of QPF Sunday evening into the night, but totals remaining below a tenth of an inch over most areas, except over portions of western MD and the WV Panhandle where there could be up to two tenths of an inch.

Southerly flow will settle ahead of this front on Sunday and high temperatures are expected to reach the 60s across most of our region and into the low 70s over central VA.

The front will stall just south of our area into Monday night while it dissipates. A weak high pressure will build just to our north. A few showers are possible Monday into Monday night over central VA and southern MD, but dry conditions expected elsewhere.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. A weak area of low pressure will be crossing the Great Lakes late Tuesday into Wednesday, deepening as it emerges off Long Island/southeastern New England late Wednesday. In its wake shortwave energy will carve out a deeper cyclone near the Great Lakes toward the end of the week. Local implications from this would be a stronger cold frontal passage either Thu night (ECMWF) or Fri (GEFS). Consequently, unsettled conditions will prevail through much of the extended forecast period. However, temperatures will remain mild until fropa.

AVIATION /SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. VFR conditions expected over the terminals for the rest of today and tonight but a few brief periods of MVFR are possible mainly over BWI and MTN. A few showers could move over the terminals Sunday and into early Monday with a frontal boundary moving through our region. VFR and dry conditions expected behind this front into Monday night.

Flight restrictions possible midweek due to low ceilings and rain.

MARINE. Winds are expected to expected to remain below Small Craft Advisory criteria through Monday night.

Winds will be light midweek.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. There is the potential for moderate coastal flooding at Straits Point, Solomons and Annapolis beginning tonight and continuing through Sun night. Advisories will be needed.

LWX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. DC . None. MD . Coastal Flood Watch from 1 AM EDT Sunday through Sunday afternoon for MDZ014. Coastal Flood Watch from 10 PM EDT this evening through Sunday afternoon for MDZ017. VA . None. WV . None. MARINE . None.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
