NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
322 am EDT Friday Apr 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure slides offshore overnight. Low pressure tracks from 
the Ohio Valley across the northern middle Atlantic Friday...and off 
the coast Friday night. A cold front drops across the region 
Saturday night...with high pressure building in from the Great 
Lakes Sunday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am this morning/... 
current WV imagery indicates an upper trough steadily tracking west-east 
across the Central Plains...with another trough downstream of the 
local area over Atlantic Canada. A narrow ridge axis exists over the 
southeast and Ohio Valley...with surface high pressure underneath 
this feature extending from the eastern Great Lakes through the middle 
Atlantic. 


The Central Plains trough will lift NE through the middle Mississippi 
Valley toward the Great Lakes overnight. Meanwhile...surface high 
pressure will slide offshore. High clouds have begun to infiltrate 
the region late this evening...and will continue to increase 
overnight. Lows temperatures should range from the upper 30s to low 40s 
over interior portions east of I-95...with middle/upper 40s west due to 
increased mixing (from light southeast flow) as the high shifts offshore 
and the approach of low pressure from the west. 


&& 


Short term /6 am this morning through Sunday/... 
the parent trough lifts through the Great Lakes Friday...with 
surface low pressure tracking across the northern mid-Atlantic. A 
prominent (surface and middle-level) Theta-E ridge precedes the trough 
axis. This should produce an increase in boundary layer moisture 
through the morning. Forecast soundings show a period of rather deep 
moisture along with a period of modest lift passing across the local 
area largely in the 18-00z timeframe. Given this there is high 
confidence of rain showers and embedded thunderstorms and rain passing across the area. The 
best destabilization occurs over southeast portions. This will be in the 
presence of modest deep layer shear (~35kt 0-6km)...and ~30kt of 
0-1km bulk shear. At this time instability appears too marginal to 
support organized severe weather...but there is enough shear for a 
minimal threat mainly across far southeast Virginia/NE NE. Highs should generally 
be in the low/middle 70s (locally cooler along the coasts). 


The middle-level cold front (cold Theta-E boundary) moves off the coast 
late Friday night...with drier air arriving from the west. The surface 
boundary is mainly a wind shift...so temperatures Saturday should 
generally be a few degrees warmer than Friday. Highs are expected to 
range from the middle 70s over eastern portions (locally cooler along 
the immediate coast)...to around 80 along a west of I-95. This will be 
after morning lows ranging from the upper 40s northwest...to upper 50s southeast. 


Saturday should begin mostly sunny...before clouds increase 
(especially n) ahead of a cold front approaching from the northwest. At 
this time probability of precipitation will be held below 15%...but a few sprinkles are 
possible across the far northern portions. This follows more of a 
12z GFS/European model (ecmwf) solution rather than the more moist 12z NAM due to the 
expectation of limited boundary layer moisture. 


The cold front drops through the area Saturday night...with high 
pressure building in from the Great Lakes Sunday. Lows should range 
from the middle 40s to low 50s Sunday morning...followed by highs 
Sunday afternoon in the middle 60s NE to low/middle 70s SW under a mostly 
sunny/clear sky. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
a highly amplified/blocky pattern will result in an unsettled prd 
next week. Todays models continue to slow the arrival of precipitation until 
Monday afternoon when the stalled frontal boundary across the Carolinas begins 
to move back north as a warm front. Kept Sunday night and Monday morning 
dry as high prs to the north is slow to retreat. Lows m40s-l50s. 


Main upper level low prognosticated to slowly eject east from nations middle 
section Monday to the Ohio/tnn vlly Wednesday. Models continue to show a 
scndary low dvlpng over the middle atlntc region Thursday with a trailing 
cold front pushing deepest moisture offshore late Thursday followed 
by lagging upper level moisture across the area. 


Numerous forecast challenges during this prd. Prime of which will be 
the location of frontal boundary now prognosticated to hover somewhere around 
the NC/Virginia border Tuesday through Thursday. The uncertainty here will make 
a problematic forecast for temperatures...wind direction and precipitation type 
(i.E. Convective vs stratiformed). Better confidence today that 
the Tuesday through Wednesday time frame will be the wettest...so have 
increased to likely probability of precipitation then. Otw...kept precipitation showers County Warning Area wide 
for now given the low confidence this far out. Could very well end 
up being more of a stratiformed rainfall across the Piedmont if a 
cool east-NE wedge sets up as well as having to add thunder to the 
southern zones given a frontal boundary location farther north. 
All-in-all...expect a cool and wet prd. Highs gnrlly from the 
l-m60s northern half of forecast area to u60s-l70s southern half. Lows u40s- 
m50s. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Friday through Tuesday/... 
VFR conds west/ light/vrb winds to start today. Low pressure crosses the region from west 
to east this afternoon/evening resulting in rain showers and isolated thunderstorms (w/ ptntl MVFR 
cigs)...along west/ south-southeast winds becoming gusty to 20 to 25 knots. Probability too low 
for thunderstorm mention in tafs at this point. Clearing out tonight...and 
continuing west/ VFR conds Sat into sun. A slow moving low pressure system will 
spread unsettled weather with periods of rain next week...beginning 
Tuesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
no headlines tonight and Friday morning as high prs builds over the 
waters. Expect variable winds to become S-southeast by morning. Prs gradient 
increases ahead of apprchg cold front Friday. Data showing higher 
confidence for at least minimal sca's across the ches Bay Friday afternoon. 
Frontal passage Friday evening with a wind shift to west-northwest aftr midnight. Although 
data shows little in the way of cold air advection...expect a few hour prd of minimal 
Small Craft Advisory right behind frontal passage so will keep sca's through the night across 
the ches Bay. Otw...expect winds & seas to stay below Small Craft Advisory levels across 
coastal waters at this time. 


West winds Erly Sat ahead of a weak trough prognosticated to cross the waters 
Sat afternoon. Wind shift to the north behind this feature...but kept winds 
below Small Craft Advisory levels as most models progg weak advection behind this ftr. 
GFS somewhat stronger with its surge and has winds into minimal Small Craft Advisory 
levels Sat night. Will take a closer look at this tomorrow. 


Large upper level systm expeceted to apprch the area next week. Although 
winds not that strong...wna showing increasing swell with seas 5-7 feet by 
the middle of next week. Have split the difference but incrsd seas 
to 4-6 feet for now. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 4 am EDT Saturday for
