Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 1044 PM EDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 Synopsis... high pressure builds over the middle Atlantic region through Friday. A strong cold front crosses the area Saturday morning...ushering in much cooler and drier weather for the end of the weekend. && Near term /until 6 am Thursday morning/... an upper trough continues to linger over New England this evening...with northwest flow over the middle-Atlantic on the upstream side of the trough axis. A weak impulse embedded within the northwest flow is producing a band of 8-10k feet ceilings from northern Virginia to S-central Virginia. A few isolated showers continue to persist...and the last few runs of the hrrr suggest that this activity could linger through the night. The middle-clouds should largely inhibit dense fog overnight. However...with lingering low-level moisture patchy fog remains possible...especially from S-central Virginia into interior NE NC. Lows should generally range from the middle 50s to low 60s. && Short term /6 am Thursday morning through Saturday/... high pressure builds into the region from New England through Friday. Carried over the patchy drizzle / fog Thursday morning across the Piedmont...otw becoming pt sunny. Highs m70s along the coast...u70s-l80s west of the Bay. Persistent forecast expeceted until frontal passage Friday night so more stratus/fog possible Friday morning across the Piedmont. Otw...pt cloudy. Lows m50s-l60s. Latest models continue to slow apprchg cdfrnt down with Friday looking dry under pt sunny skies. Again...kept morning fog over the Piedmont. Highs m70s coastal areas...around 80 west of the Bay. Frontal passage west-east across the forecast area aftr midnight Friday night...exiting off the coast before noon Saturday. Decent slug of moisture prognosticated ahead of it but with only marginal instability. Slowed probability of precipitation down with only chance evening probability of precipitation west of the Bay...then kept likely probability of precipitation aftr midnight. Kept slght chance thunder in at this time given the unfavorable time of frontal passage. Lows u50s-u60s. Morning probability of precipitation Saturday with skies becoming pt to mostly sunny in the afternoon. Tough call on temperatures as the strngst cold air advection holds off until Sat night. West (downsloping) winds along with increasing amts of sunshine help boost temperatures a degree or two warmer. Highs in the 70s. && Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... long term period will feature mainly dry and seasonable conditions. For Sat ngt/sun...mid-level trough axis and associated surface cold front pushes farther offshore. Hi pressure then builds into the southeast U.S. By Sun afternoon with SW flow developing across the middle Atlantic. Expect a sunny sky with hi temperatures in the middle to upper 60s. Dry conditions continue into Monday with a broad upper-level trough over the east half of the Continental U.S. And surface hi pressure sliding offshore. Hi temperatures near normal...in the low to middle 70s. For Tue/Wed...a middle-level shortwave trough and weak surface frntal boundary will cross the middle Atlantic leading to a slight chance for a rain showers. Difficult to time this far out but either way not expecting a large amount of precipitation with this systm. Hi temperatures both days still in the low to middle 70s with lows ranging through the 50s. && Aviation /03z Thursday through Monday/... weak frontal boundary washing out across southern portions of the local area as high pressure continues to ridge in from the north. Area of clouds will persist through 04z as a weak vorticity maximum swings over the area. With high pressure building in and clearing skies tonight...subsidence will combine with light onshore flow and dewpoints in the u50s/l60s to produce areas of fog. Stratus is possible overnight. VFR conditions will persist late morning through the rest of the 00z taf period with light north to north-northeast winds and scattered/broken middle-level clouds Thursday afternoon. Anticipate more fog and stratus again Thursday night. A cold front will cross the region Friday night into Saturday morning. Precipitation along with low ceilings/visibilities expected. && Marine... Small Craft Advisory headlines continue for the northern-most coastal zone...north of Chincoteague through 10 PM EDT for 4-5 feet seas. NE winds around 15 knots with gusts up to 20 knots have resulted in 5 feet seas at buoy 44009. The winds will diminish later this evening as the gradient relaxes...but persistent north-NE winds just north of the local waters will continue to push seas to 5 feet early this evening. Expect seas to diminish slightly by late this evening. Will re-evaluate through this eveng as there is a chance seas stay up all night there. With weak hi pressure over the NE/Middle Atlantic States into Thursday/Thursday night...northerly winds at or below 15 knots will continue. Seas again will be close to 5 feet (but mostly 3-4 ft) through this period. Next cold front approaches on Friday...with flow veering to the southeast late in the day. Seas may build to 5-6 feet by Friday night and continuing into Sat. The cold front will cross the waters by Sat...with Small Craft Advisory conditions likely behind the front Sat night with strong cold air advection. && Tides/coastal flooding... tidal anomalies are expected to average around 1.0ft above normal tonight through Friday due to persistent onshore flow. This has the potential to push portions of the Middle Bay and tidal Potomac to minor flooding thresholds during high tide Thursday evening/night at Lewisetta...Bishops Head...and Cambridge. Water levels will again approach minor thresholds at the same locations Friday evening/night as the wind becomes southerly ahead of a cold front. Tidal anomalies should begin to decline Saturday as the wind shifts offshore behind the cold front. && Akq watches/warnings/advisories... Maryland...none. NC...none. Virginia...none.
