Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC 1012 AM EDT Sat Mar 28 2020

SYNOPSIS. A front will stall out near the Appalachians into southern Virginia through tonight. The front will then try to lift north as a warm front early Sunday, before a cold front moves through from the west late Sunday. High pressure will be in control Monday into Tuesday. A low pressure will then approach from the southeast U.S. Tuesday night before departing off the mid- Atlantic coast on Wednesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Latest surface analysis suggests that the suface front remains south/west of the forecast area, with a cool/stable east/northeast flow across the region. At 850 mb though the front appears to be across northeast Maryland. The initial round of showers and a few thunderstorms have pushed to the Eastern Shore and into the Atlantic. However, additional showers can be seen developing across northern Maryland, with yet more shower and thunderstorm activity in western Pennslyvania set to advect southeast. It would appear as though most of this activity will be along/northeast of the Potomac River. Have trimmed back PoPs accordingly. The wettest part of the day is behind us, but elevated instability on 12Z LWX RAOB indicates that showers (and even thunderstorms) can develop given synoptic forcing. Will be assessing to see if thunder needs to be reinserted into this afternoon's forecast.

Guidance providing a big range in temperatures today across the warm front. Have sided toward better-performing mesoscale guidance, which warms Virginia (where forecast is dry) by several degrees.

Area will be in the warm sector tonight. Anticipate a small diurnal spread from today's highs to tonight's lows. However, given low dewpoint depressions (dewpoints also in the 50s), believe that patchy fog will be developing overnight.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. Warm front will be over us early Sunday, with guidance slowing it down and actually keeping it a little longer over our area. Warm front will lift away from us Sunday before a cold front pushes through our area Sunday evening. The cold front will bring showers and perhaps a thunderstorms over our region. Instability will be marginal, with higher values east of the Blue Ridge, but these areas may be in the cold air wedge especially from DC north.

High pressure builds behind the front Sunday night and remains in control through Monday night bringing dry conditions over our region. Gusty winds will also develop on Monday.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. A low pressure will be moving across the southeastern United States on Tuesday. Clouds will overspread the region once again as high pressure retreats northward a bit, and rain may arrive across southern and western areas by day's end. Rain looks likely across most of the region Tuesday night, but should dwindle on Wednesday as the low pressure heads east out to sea. High pressure will briefly return Wednesday night before a cold front approaches from the northwest Thursday. The front will slow as it crosses the area Thursday night and Friday, but only a few showers look possible with minimal moisture and forcing available. Temperatures through this coming week will be noticeably cooler than recent days, with temperatures in the 50s to lower 60s. By early April, this is near to below normal, something we haven't seen much of lately.

AVIATION /14Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Behind this morning's showers/thunderstorms, vsbys (and to a lesser extent ceilings) improved. However, the surface front remains to the southwest of the terminals. Given moist east flow, it is anticipated that low ceilings will return; that trend has already begun. IFR will become more common this afternoon, continuing into this evening. Do not have a high confidence in sub-IFR today, but would not rule it out either. Odds much greater for that occurring tonight as areas of fog develop, in addition to the continuance of lowering CIGs.

Low clouds and fog will continue into Sunday morning. CIGS and VSBY will improve Sunday morning, ahead of a cold front that could bring showers and thunderstorms over the terminals. VFR conditions return behind the front Sunday night and Monday, along with gusty winds (20 to 30 knots) Monday.

Sub-VFR conditions possible by Tuesday night as low pressure passes to the south, but VFR should return later on Wednesday as it moves out to sea.

MARINE. Winds are expected to remain below Small Craft Advisory (SCA) for this afternoon into tonight. SCA may be needed for Sunday as front moves across the area, with light winds Sunday night. Winds will increase on Monday and a SCA will be needed during the day.

SCA gusts possible Tuesday night and Wednesday as low pressure passes to the south and then moves out to sea.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
