Discussion for Wakefield, VA
MARINE... As of 245 PM EST Tuesday... Weak high pressure is overhead this afternoon, leading to onshore flow around 5-10kt. Seas are 2-3ft and waves are around 1ft. Low pressure will form off the Outer Banks overnight, strengthening as it travels ENE into the Atlantic Wednesday. Meanwhile, strong high pressure will build into the region from the SW. This will result in winds becoming N-NE late tonight into early Wednesday morning at 10- 15 kt. Winds become NNW- NW and increase to at 20-25 kt with gusts to 30 kt by Wednesday afternoon. Winds remain elevated into Thursday morning as pressure gradient tightens over the area between the low pressure off the coast and the high pressure to the west. SCAs have been raised for everywhere but the upper rivers, where conditions are a bit more marginal. These zones may be added overnight if certainty in SCA conditions increases. Cannot rule out a few gusts to gale-force in the lower Bay and southern coastal waters, but local wind probs are low. Seas will increase quickly to 4-6 ft (3 ft nearshore) Wed aftn-early Thurs, with waves in the Bay increasing to 2-4 ft during this period. The center of high pressure moves to the south over the area, over SC and GA, and winds gradually turn to the SW and become ~10 kt Thursday aftn, increasing to ~15 kt Thursday night. Uncertainty remains heading into the weekend as a dynamic system looks to approach the region, with elevated southerly winds ahead of the cold front and elevated westerly/northerly winds behind the front Sunday through Monday. 3-4 ft seas and 1-2 ft waves are expected until ~Sat.
