Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC 1000 AM EDT Fri Jun 14 2024

A cold front approaching from the Ohio River Valley will cross the Mid-Atlantic tonight. High pressure will follow this weekend. A warm front will lift across the region Monday as high pressure shifts off the East Coast through next week.

Mostly sunny conditions across the area this morning, though clouds are starting to fill in across the Alleghenies late this morning. Temperatures have risen to the upper 70s as of 930AM, with low 80s in central VA. For this afternoon, did tick up max temps a degrees higher, though still in the low 90s. Deep mixing dropping dew points to the upper 50s to low 60s will keep heat indices in the low to mid 90s as well.

Modified Previous Discussion:

Ample surface heating should take place this afternoon. This will result in steep low-level lapse rates and a deeply-mixed boundary layer up to or even a little above 850 hPa. However, deep layer westerly flow (albeit light in the low levels) may cause surface dew points to drop and reduce convergence, casting uncertainty in thunderstorm coverage later today as a cold front and parent upper trough approach from the west.

Coverage may tend to focus in a few different places: (1) along the surface trough, (2) near the PA line closer to better large scale forcing for ascent, and (3) near any terrain circulations in the vicinity of the Appalachians. Effective shear likely increases to 30-35 knots (highest north) by evening, so any deep convection that does develop will have the potential to organize into bands or multicell clusters. The main risk given the largely unidirectional flow and steep low-level lapse rates appears to be damaging wind gusts.

Timing of thunderstorms is a bit uncertain, but should focus between 4 PM to 9 PM after the initial weak wave departs, heating maximizes, and the synoptic front/trough approach from the west.
Additional shower activity or perhaps a thunderstorm or two may linger into the overnight hours as the parent upper trough pivots overhead.

High pressure will build in this weekend in the wake of tonight's cold front. Temperatures will be seasonable in the 80s with lower humidity expected. The chance of rain is near 0 through the weekend given deep dry air and large scale subsidence.

Overnight low temperatures in the 50s and 60s are expected Saturday night, but Sunday night will be about 10 degrees warmer as high pressure moves offshore and a warm front approaches.

A strong upper ridge is forecast to build over the Northeast and the northern mid-Atlantic early next week with ridge reaching maximum amplitude over the local area next Wednesday. As a result, hot and dry weather is expected all of next week. Some record highs appear possible, particularly Tue when records are in the mid 90s. Records on Wednesday and Thursday are higher in the upper 90s and will be more difficult to be broken. Some Heat Advisories or Heat Watches may become necessary at some point next week. Note that CPC has indicated the potential for a flash drought onset risk in their latest Days 8-14 Hazards Outlook valid Jun 21-27.

Prevailing VFR conditions are expected through the weekend.

A cold front will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to the region late this afternoon into late evening. The majority of storms should occur between 20Z and 01Z, with possible lingering shower activity until 07Z or so. Any strong thunderstorm could produce brief restrictions and gusty winds.
TS coverage is a bit uncertain given deep layer westerly flow which tends to limit things locally. However, steep low-level lapse rates could result in gusty and erratic surface winds even in seemingly weaker activity through this evening.

Winds shift to the W-NW-N through the evening as the cold front crosses, with a brief period of 15-20 kt gusts possible outside of any showers and thunderstorms. Northerly winds Saturday become northeast Saturday night, then east to southeast Sunday.
Gusts of 15-20 knots are possible during the day Saturday.

No sig wx is expected Mon or Tue.

Early morning gusty winds over parts of the central Chesapeake Bay have now decreased, and should remain below SCA criteria for the next few hours.

A strengthening surface trough just west of the waters will likely enhance winds just enough, and that combined with the afternoon bay breeze should be sufficient for a period of southerly gusts around 20 knots for the main channel of the Chesapeake Bay between Sandy Point MD and Smith Point VA (typical channeling area). A brief period of NW 15-20 knot gusts is possible in the wake of a cold front this evening, with gustier winds possible in shower or thunderstorm activity (may require Special Marine Warnings).

Northerly winds likely gust 20-25 knots Saturday morning through early afternoon, before diminishing and becoming northeast Saturday night, then east to southeast Sunday through Sunday night. Dry weather is forecast this weekend.

SCA conditions are possible all of next week due to southerly channeling and large water vs land temperature differences of nearly 20 degrees F.
