  4. SPC MCD sounds completely opposite to what LWX wrote in their AFD above
  5. Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC 200 PM EDT Wed Jul 17 2024 .SYNOPSIS... A strong cold front will slowly cross the area through tonight bringing increased chances for showers and thunderstorms. Cool high pressure builds back into the area from the north Thursday as the front sinks south and east of region. The front will remain stalled to our south Friday before retreating back to the north this weekend into early next week. && .NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/... As of 18Z, a small shortwave/vortmax (remnant MCV feature) was moving across the Appalachians in eastern WV up into SW PA. Surface winds, albeit light, have occasionally backed to the SE over portions of the Shenandoah Valley, indicative of enhanced cyclonic flow around this feature. Guidance seems to be underdoing the effects of this MCV, so anticipate a bit better low-level convergence and mid-level shear as it progresses east. This will likely result in a rapidly developing band of thunderstorms over eastern WV over the foothills west of I-81 by mid afternoon. This band of storms should then progress E/NE crossing the Blue Ridge around 4 PM, then entering the metros around 5-6 PM. These storms may further be enhanced along and in the lee of a pressure trough that arcs from northern DE southwest to near Charlottesville; higher CAPE exists east of this boundary as of 18Z. The main threat with this activity given meager mid-level lapse rates is damaging wind gusts, with a conditional risk for an isolated tornado where surface winds become sufficiently backed to the SE ahead of the MCV, or east of the surface pressure trough. Additional shower and thunderstorm activity is possible this evening as the synoptic cold front (currently over OH/northwest PA) pushes in. Interaction between the surface trough, MCV, and cold front could result in multiple rounds of thunderstorms over the I-95 corridor into southern MD. With ample moisture in place (PWs rising to over 2" by evening), this supports the ongoing Flood Watch for potential flash flooding. Rainfall rates under the heaviest storms could approach 2-3 inches per hour, with localized/isolated totals under repeated storms possibly approaching 5 or 6 inches.
  6. 94 at BWI and IAD, 95 at DCA at noon
  7. 10 am temps DCA 92 BWI 89 IAD 90
  8. 9am temps DCA 89 BWI 86 IAD 87
  9. Why does this bias always seem to show up during the summer months?
  10. So if either of them hit 101 today then it's the longest streak in each station's history?
