Discussion for Wakefield, VA
MARINE... As of 705 AM EST Saturday... Went ahead and added Marine Dense Fog Advy for New Point Comfort north (including the Rappahannock River) in the Bay and from Wachapreague north on the coastal water side. Could see further deterioration to VSBY in the lower Bay and central coastal waters around the VA Capes later this morning. Will continue to monitor. Previous discussion follows... As of 355 AM EST Saturday Winds are SSW 10-15 kt this morning, with occasional gusts to around 20 kt in the lower bay and lower James River. Seas 2-3 ft nearshore, closer to ~4 ft offshore in 5-7 second SSE swell. Waves 1-2 ft. Winds remain out of the SSW today, as a weak warm front lingers over the lower bay and central and southern coastal zones and a weak sfc wave lifts NNE. High-res CAMs continues to indicate that marine dense fog could become a more widespread issue over the waters around and especially just after sunrise. Predominate winds remain SSW tonight, as boundary becomes a bit more diffuse with time into Sun morning. Boundary lifts north early Sunday morning, which could turn winds briefly E-SE north of New Point Comfort in the bay and north of Wachapreague on the Atlantic waters side, though speeds remain sub-SCA throughout this period. Winds back to the SSW again later Sun morning through Sunday evening. A cold front crosses the area Sunday evening with W-NW winds increasing to 15-20 kt (highest over the coastal waters) by Monday afternoon and night behind the front. Once again, expect most areas should stay sub-SCA through this period, with in-house wind probs showing <20% probability of winds meeting or exceeding SCA thresholds through Monday evening. Widespread SCA conditions are not forecast until next Wednesday-Thursday behind a second, stronger cold frontal passage. At that time, NW winds look to increase to 15- 25 kt with gusts to ~30 kt possible.
