Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 8:14 am EDT on July 23, 2014


Between 1130 am and noon today... and normally every Wednesday... we
will conduct a test of the NOAA all hazards weather radio alarm
system. Persons with alarms on their radios... are asked to ensure
that these are turned on... to confirm that the test was received.
Again... the alarm test will be conducted between 1130 am and noon
today. The alarm test may be cancelled without notice in the event
of rapidly developing warning or watch conditions... which require
the Wakefield office to shift into a higher alert Mode.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1018 am EDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
surface high pressure will remain in place over the western 
Atlantic today. A cold front will approach from the northwest 
through tonight...then push across the region Thursday and 
Thursday night. High pressure will build over the area on Friday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
fog has quickly burned off with low clouds dsptg as well. 
Weah high prs over the region to provide a return to above normal temperatures 
today due to plnty of sunshine and a west-SW wind. Latest short range 
models hold off most convective activity until aftr 21z...so 
backed off probability of precipitation a bit Erly this aftr xcpt across southeastern Virginia/NE NC 
where lingering trough may result in scattered convection by or shortly 
aftr 18z. Highs l-m90s...a bit cooler at the beaches. Dew points 
should mix out a bit resulting in heat index values at or below 100. 


Pvs dscn: 
dampening upper trough and its associated surface cold front will 
drop from the upper Midwest (this morning) towards the region late 
tonight into early Thursday. Expect clouds to increase as the trough 
approaches, becoming overcast late across the north/northwest (partly cloudy 
se). As front sinks slowly south towards thea area late tonight, 
will probably see some spotty rain showers/isolated T develop to our 
northwest...potentially reaching northern County Warning Area by day break. 
Therefore went with a 30-40% pop across the north...20% farther 
south. Partly to mostly cloudy and muggy with early morning lows 
in the low to middle 70s. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday/... 
surface cold front will be dropping southeast ac receiver station the County Warning Area Thursday 
morning...reaching the coastal plain by afternoon. Unfortunately for 
portions of the forecast area (namely central Virginia/Richmond metro) where precipitation 
deficits past month or so average a couple/few inches, model guidance 
continues to depict best forcing coincident with 60-70kt rrq of 
upper jet arriving by Thursday afternoon and oriented from upstate SC/central 
NC towards the Tidewater area. Therefore, have kept best 
pop/higher quantitative precipitation forecast across the southern half of County Warning Area Thursday afternoon/evening, 
gradually spreading southeast as the cold front settles farther south 
into NE NC Thursday night/early Friday. As is typical for this time of year, 
front will then likely get hung up across far southeast County Warning Area lt Thursday and 
much of Friday. Otherwise, for bulk of forecast area...gradual drying from the northwest 
to southeast is indicated as surface hi pressure builds in from the Ohio Valley. 
Drop probability of precipitation off for most areas Thursday ngt, but did maintain 20-30% probability of precipitation 
along the stalled boundary across coastal NE NC through Friday afternoon. 
Otherwise clearing and becoming a bit drier late Thursday through 
Friday. 


For temps, look for highs in the M/u80s north...u80s to l90s S Thursday. 
Highs Friday in the M/u80s inland...l/m80s at the CST. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
stationary front remains over NC Friday night with high pressure 
over the local area. This will result in dry conditions. Front 
remains stationary over NC on Saturday before slowing lifting back 
north through Virginia Saturday night into Sunday morning. Will carry 
slight chance probability of precipitation across the far south Saturday for possibility of 
afternoon convection near the front. By Sunday...the front will align 
itself across northern Virginia and will be the focus for thunderstorm activity 
across the entire area due to increased moisture/instability. Will 
carry chance probability of precipitation into Monday as well as the front dissipates nearby. 
The models are in good agreement about bringing a cold front through 
the local area Monday night with dry/cooler air arriving next 
Tuesday/Wednesday. Highs Saturday in the 80s. Warmest Sunday/Monday 
with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Cooler again next Tuesday with 
highs in the 80s. Lows mainly in the 60s to low 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
a warm front near the coastal Virginia/NC border will keep lingering 
shower activity in the Albemarle Sound vicinity through at least 
23/0800z. Thereafter...an approaching cold front will cause the warm 
front to shift southeast and away from the area after daybreak. Fog 
may be problematic across southern Virginia/NE NC...in the vicinity of the warm 
front. Observations have shown variable visibilities of 1-5sm and 
ceilings fluctuating between 100-1000 feet above ground level. At this time...kecg and ksby 
should be most adversely impacted by fog with visibilities as low as 
1sm possible and ceilings below 500 feet above ground level. Any fog that develops should 
lift/dissipate by 23/1400z. 


Otherwise...early morning sunshine in a moist and warm environment 
will allow scattered-broken cumulus to develop by late morning/early afternoon. 
Pre-frontal thunderstorms are expected to form by middle to late afternoon 
today and all taf sites are anticipated to be impacted. The 
previously mentioned cold front moves into the region from the 
west by late this evening...bringing a more focused line of 
showers and thunderstorms to the region overnight tonight into 
Thursday. The front stalls along the NC coast by Friday morning. 
This will shunt precipitation chances over far southeast Virginia and NE NC through 
Friday...possibly into Saturday. Surface high pressure builds back 
into the region from the west-northwest on Friday and then slides off the middle 
Atlantic coast by Saturday...bringing a return to rain-free 
conditions during the weekend. 


Note: observations from ksby are not readily available due to a 
communications problem...technicians are aware of the issue. 
Current information may be obtained by calling into the ASOS site 
directly. In the meantime...amend not schedule will be appended to the 
ksby taf until further notice. 


&& 


Marine... 
light and variable winds switching anywhere from east-southeast to S today with 
speeds around 5-10 knots this morning...becoming 10-15 knots by this afternoon 
as a cold front approaches the region from the west-northwest. A pre-frontal 
thermal trough develops ahead of it and scattered thunderstorms will 
be possible by middle-late afternoon through this evening. As the pressure 
gradient tightens ahead of the front...wind speeds are expected to 
increase this afternoon through tonight (aob 15 knots all waters...gusts to 
around 20 knots possible over ocean). The cold front crosses the waters 
late tonight into Thursday with showers/storms becoming more widespread. 
Winds turn to a more S-SW direction tonight...W-NW on Thursday...then north 
Thursday night. Waves generally 1 foot this morning...building to 1-2 feet 
by middle-late afternoon through tonight. Seas 2-3 feet this morning... 
building to 3-4 feet early this evening and overnight. Waves/seas 
start to subside Thursday afternoon as the front begins to stall along the NC 
coast...which will also cause precipitation to become shunted over far southeast 
Virginia/NE NC by Thursday night into Friday. 


An upper level trough pushes across the waters on Friday as surface high 
pressure builds back into the middle Atlantic region. Winds north-NE at or below 
10 knots Friday/Friday night. The surface high then slides off the middle Atlantic 
coast by Sat morning...bringing a return to onshore east-southeast winds at or below 
15 knots through the rest of the weekend. The next cold front to impact 
the region will approach the waters Sun night. 


&& 


Equipment... 
kdox radar offline at this time due to a transmitter failure on-site. 
Technicans will be dispatched later this morning. Updates will be 
passed along as they become available.
