Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 354 am EST sun Nov 23 2014 Synopsis... high pressure moves farther offshore today. A warm front will lift north across the region tonight. A cold front will cross the area late Monday into Monday night. Weak high pressure builds into the area from the west Tuesday. Low pressure tracks up the East Coast Tuesday night through Wednesday. && Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... surface hi pressure now off the CST...will continue to slo drift east away from the CST through today. Clouds continue to increases...thicken...and lower from the SW as Gulf Coast moisture and an associated warm front lift NE through the southeast Continental U.S....ahead of the middle-level trough lifting through the Tennessee Valley. Expecting much of the day to be dry...but some rain should arrive in far SW portions of late in the day. Will continue west/ incrsg probability of precipitation to 50-60% probability of precipitation SW late in the day...W/ ribbon of 30-40% pop from the northwest Piedmont through NE NC. Hi temperatures ranging from the m50s northwest to l60s southeast. && Short term /6 PM this evening through Tuesday/... the warm front with strong vertical motion will cross the middle Atlantic region tonight. Substantial moisture (pwtrs incrsg to 1.5 to 2 in 00-06z/24 per 00z/23 gfs) will accompany the front due to a strong nearly 70kt low level jet. Probability of precipitation for rain during the 12hr period tonight will continue at 100%. A slight chance of thunder will be maintained for coastal NE NC (not ready to add to other areas - especially eastern Virginia/lower southeast Maryland but wouldn't rule it out)...and Storm Prediction Center has outlined that area (cstl NE nc) in slight chance severe. A tightening pressure gradient and 6hr pressure falls of -6mb to -10mb GFS will result in breezy/windy conditions...especially in vicinity of the coast. Gusts from the south-southeast direction of 30 to 40 miles per hour are possible. Low temperatures tonight should range through the 50s...with readings likely to rise after midnight. Strong forcing and substantial moisture should result in a ~6hr period of moderate to occasionally heavy rain tonight...with total quantitative precipitation forecast amounts averaging 0.5 to 0.75 in north/central and 1.00-1.25 in near the CST (and NE nc). The warm front will be well north-northeast of the region by 12z/25...W/ a cold front approaching toward the far western counties by 00z Tuesday. Low clouds and fog are possible Monday morning...with a gusty SW wind developing during the late morning and afternoon in advance of the cold front. This will help push temperatures into the 70s (see the the climatology section below for records). Will limit any probability of precipitation to far east-southeast areas of forecast area as 00z/23 NAM remains outlier in lingering moisture across those locations throughout the day. Weak high pressure builds into the region Monday night and Tuesday. Partial clearing is expected inland...with possible clouds lingering right along the coast as the frontal boundary stalls offshore and low pressure begins to develop off the southeast coast later Tuesday. Highs Tuesday should range from the middle 50s northwest...to low 60s southeast...after morning lows from the middle 40s northwest...to low/middle 50s southeast. && Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 00z/23 runs of the GFS and European model (ecmwf) coming more into line with respect to ptntl low pressure developing along stalled frontal boundary near the southeast Continental U.S. CST lt Tuesday/Tuesday night...then tracking north-northeast along the CST Wednesday into Wednesday night. A busy period of travel midweek incrsly likely to be impacted by rain...and as ptntl coastal storm winds down (lt Wednesday/Wednesday ngt)...model temperature profiles suggest possible rain ending as wet snow inland. Have nudged probability of precipitation up to 70-80% east portion west...40-60% inland on Wednesday. Precipitation/moist then moves east of the area and off the CST later Wednesday Wednesday night...with probability of precipitation diminishing from west to east. A mainly dry front swings across the area Thursday afternoon into early Friday morng. Hi pressure will then build into and over the region Friday through Sat. Maximum temperatures will be in the l40s west and M/u40s east Wednesday...in the u40s to l50s Thursday...in the M/u40s Friday...and range through the 40s Sat. Min temperatures will be in the middle 30s to lower 40s Wednesday morng...in the upper 20s to middle 30s Thursday and Friday morngs...and in the middle 20s to lower 30s Sat morng. && Aviation /08z Sunday through Thursday/... VFR conditions continue across the region and will persist into this morning. Surface high pressure has moved offshore of Virginia/NC and winds around the high are southeast-SW over the region and generally less than 10 kts. Meanwhile...lots of moisture across the southeast and Gulf states will push north into the middle atl region during the day. A middle-level wave will help form a surface low pressure system across the southeast US as the middle-level wave moves NE out of the Gomex today. This will further increase the moisture as a warm front surges through the area tonight. Expect IFR conditions (possibly lower) due to lowered ceilings and reduced visible with rain. Also...wind gusts to 35kt may be possible Monday morning as the system deepens over the area. Thunderstorms will also be possible over NE NC/southeast Virginia. && Marine... forecast updated with an upgrade to Gale Warning over the ocean. Despite warm air over cool water temperatures...with a strong pressure gradient ahead of an approaching cold front and weak low pressure development over northern Virginia...and latest nam12 progging 925 mb winds ~75 knots...think that there will be at least a few hours of winds at or above 34 knots over the ocean tonight. Seas will reach 6-8 feet. Gusts may come close to gale force over the Bay as well (at least at elevated sites) where strong Small Craft Advisory conditions are anticipated. Also maintained the Small Craft Advisory headlines for the other waters. The Gale Warning ends late Monday morning...but may need to be extended as gusts could continue in the 30-35 knots range through the afternoon hours. The Small Craft Advisory headlines all end during the day Monday as winds decrease just ahead of the front which crosses the waters late Monday night/Tuesday morng. Improving marine conditions then into Tuesday with hi pressure over the area. && Climate... unseasonably warm weather expected Monday. Record high temperatures for Monday.
