... A frontal boundary along southern Virginia this morning will begin to lift northward today as a warm front. This boundary will remain stretched across our area through Saturday. A stronger cold front will sweep through the region on Sunday, bringing drier and clearer conditions. High pressure builds in to the region from the west for the first half of next week.
NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/... Light rain showers are being observed across the northern third of our CWA this morning, moving off to the northeast and delivering only light accumulations of less than a tenth of an inch. Cloudy skies blanket the region with temperatures generally holding in the upper 30s to around 40 degrees. Earlier issued winter weather advisory over western Grant, Mineral, and Allegany counties will be lifted as available observations indicate above freezing temperatures and model guidance actually favors a slight rise in temperatures through daybreak.
A stationary boundary residing along the VA/NC border this morning will gain some momentum and lift northward as a warm front today, moving into our area by this evening. As a result, shower activity will be mostly relegated to our northern zones this afternoon, near the Mason Dixon Line. Morning showers will wane by midday for much of the area with the exception of the previously mentioned areas. Expect temperatures today to remain seasonable in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees for much of the area, with northern and northeast MD holding on to the middle 40s. The Potomac Highlands looked poised to break in to the warm sector as the aforementioned warm front lifts northward, which would result in temperatures well in to the 50s to near 60 degrees.
SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/... As the warm front lifts in to our area by this evening, rain chances will be favored over our far northern and western zones of western MD and portions of the WV highlands. Much of the area should remain fairly dry tonight, with areas of fog developing after midnight. Temperatures will remain mild for this time of year, in the mid- upper 40s to near 50 degrees.
Low pressure will move northeastward along the stationary boundary across our area on Saturday, bringing increased rain chances once again. The first half of Saturday does look drier as rain should hold off for much of the area until Saturday afternoon/evening. Highs on Saturday will be in the 60s across the southern half of our area, with low to mid 50s likely towards the MD/PA border as the frontal boundary bisects the CWA. Lows Saturday night will not fall far, holding in the 50s area wide, with continued periods of rain showers.
A stronger cold front will sweep through the area on Sunday, currently progged to move through Sunday afternoon. We will see showers and perhaps a thunderstorm or two with its passage. Highs on Sunday will be quite warm, approaching 70 degrees for much of the area, with upper 60s across northern MD. We will see dryer and clearer conditions Sunday night as the front moves south of our area. Lows will still be well above average Sunday night, ranging from the low 40s to near 50 degrees.
LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/... High pressure will be the primary player in the extended forecast. However, there is some disagreement as to when it will take over (Mon vs Tue) and when it will relinquish control to the next wave of warm-frontal precipitation (Wed vs Thu). Due to these uncertainties, will need to take the more pessimistic route, which is closer to the ECMWF Mon but GFS Wed-Thu.
Temperatures will be safely above freezing through the period when precip is a possibility, so no p-type concerns anticipated. Highs will generally range from the mid 50s to around 60. Aside from Monday night, when cold advection should be at its greatest, lows will range from the mid 30s-mid 40s.
