224 pm edt Wed aug 21 2019

Synopsis
An upper level disturbance will cross the region this afternoon
and evening. A cold front will approach the region Thursday and
move southward crossing Thursday night, and likely stalling
nearby into Friday. Behind the front, high pressure will build
over the region for the weekend.

Near term through tonight
An upper level trough is crossing the area this afternoon and
will be followed by a second weaker shortwave this evening. At
the surface, a weak pressure trough is present in the lee of the
mountains early this afternoon and this will gradually push
eastward through the remainder of the day and be east of the
region by tonight. A mix of Sun and clouds during much of the
day has allowed temperatures to rise into the upper 80s to low
90s. Instability is not as impressive as what we saw on
Tuesday, given the additional cloud cover and slightly cooler
temperatures, and the synoptic lift will be coming through
piecemeal and focused further north. That being said, 1000-1500
j kg of MLCAPE has developed from near the blue ridge eastward,
and an increase in shear has been noted with effective shear
values from 30-35 knots. One of the more noticeable differences
when compared to Tuesday is the significantly less dcape that is
analyzed across the region. Still, these ingredients will
support at least an isolated threat for severe thunderstorms
today, with damaging winds and large hail continuing to be the
primary threats. Initial development is now occurring in the
surface trough near or just east of the appalachians. These
showers thunderstorms should then progress eastward across the
metros during the remainder of the afternoon hours and into the
evening. A second round of activity is possible, but is less
certain during the mid to late evening as the second weaker
shortwave moves across.

Shower and thunderstorm activity will then dwindle heading into
the overnight, with partly cloudy skies and mainly dry
conditions persisting overnight. Patchy fog will be possible
towards morning as temperatures bottom out in the middle 60s to
middle 70s.

Short term Thursday through Friday night
A surface cold front will then push southward towards the region
Thursday and should be located near the mason dixon line by
Thursday evening. At the same time, upper level shortwave energy
will traverse the region from west to east. Thus, additional
development of scattered showers and thunderstorms seems
probable during the afternoon and evening hours. A marginal risk
of severe thunderstorms appears warranted, and we will also
remain moist with mean flow parallel to the front, so heavy
rain resulting in isolated incidents of flooding will also be a
concern. Highs on Friday will again be hot, in the upper 80s to
low 90s.

The front shifts southward Thursday night into Friday, but
likely lingers close enough nearby to bring continued chances
for scattered showers thunderstorms through Friday evening.

Temperatures will trend noticeably cooler on Friday on the
northern side of the front, with highs from 75-85f. A drying
trend should commence Friday night as the front sinks further
south into southern virginia. Lows will likely fall into the
50s 60s.

Long term Saturday through Wednesday
Cold front will continue to sag southward through Saturday morning,
before high pressure builds in from the north by Saturday
afternoon. This will result in showers, with an isolated rumble
of thunder, across central va and maybe southern md on Saturday
morning. The front likely clears our forecast area by Saturday
afternoon, taking rain chances with it. However, there is still
a bit of uncertainty as far as whether our southern most regions
escape the rain. So, keeping low end chance pops across parts
of central va. Though the front should be far enough south on
Sunday to keep the entire area dry, can't completely rule out an
isolated shower wandering into southern parts of the forecast
area. Temperatures this weekend will be below average, with
highs near 80 or so, with significantly reduced humidity as
well.

High pressure will push northeast early in the week, resulting in a
return southerly to southeasterly flow. This could bring showers and
thunderstorms back into the forecast, with muggier conditions
returning. Guidance shows a slight uptick in temperatures as well,
but only into the low to mid 80s by Tuesday. Will carry chance pops
Monday and Tuesday with some thunderstorms possible once again.

Aviation 18z Wednesday through Monday
Afternoon evening scattered showers and storms can be expected
through Friday as a cold front slowly transits the area,
bringing brief periods of subVFR conditions. Some of the
thunderstorms may become strong to locally severe with heavy
rain, gusty winds, and hail. Patchy fog could also yield
MVFR ifr vis, mostly likely at mrb cho.

Vfr conditions expected through the long term period. The only
exception could be at cho on Saturday morning, where an isolated
thunderstorm cannot be ruled out.

Marine
Sca conditions expected over the waters this afternoon and into
tonight as the gradient increases and a cold front nears the
ohio valley. The gradient is expected to relax overnight and
remain below SCA criteria Thursday and Friday. The front will
drift over the waters on Thursday, lingering nearby into Friday.

As such, afternoon and evening showers storms can be expected,
some of which will deliver strong gusty winds.

Sub-sca winds expected on Saturday, but a stiff easterly breeze is
expected Sunday afternoon, which could approach SCA criteria.

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.
