Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1143 am EDT Thursday Jul 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
a frontal boundary will drop into the middle Atlantic this 
morning...and remain over the area through Saturday bringing 
unsettled conditions. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest GOES WV imagery and upper air radiosonde observation plots depicts broad 
cyclonic flow over the eastern Continental U.S. This morning...with several 
shortwave features over the Midwest...upper Midwest and Great Lakes. 
At the surface...stationary boundary has located over the region. 
Isolated-scattered showers/thunderstorms persist over the Maryland Eastern 
Shore this morning in response to the upstream wave and isentropic 
lift/Omega located on the 310k surface. These showers/thunderstorms will 
push off the coast/weaken through the noon hour as the lift pushes 
offshore. 


The next wave associated with a decaying complex over the Kentucky/Tennessee 
valleys prognosticated to cross the region this afternoon. Winds also 
increase aloft. Height falls produce a wave of low pressure along 
the front...which combined with precipitable waters  around 2 inches (+2 Standard dev) 
and dewpoints around 70 will result in additional 
showers/thunderstorms this afternoon. Model consensus develops scattered 
showers/thunderstorms along the coast...upstream of the developing 
wave. Another area of showers (embedded thunder) approaches the 
Piedmont late this afternoon. May see a few breaks in the clouds 
across the south and southeast counties this afternoon...which along 
with Theta-E advection and temperatures in the upper 80s will produce a 
marginally unstable airmass. Locally heavy rainfall will be the main 
threat...but strong wind gusts will be possible. However...bufr 
soundings indicate a moist sounding...with moist adiabatic middle-level 
lapse rates...which would likely inhibit any severe gust. Have 
bumped temperatures down slightly...especially across the north...as 
abundant cloud cover and earlier precipitation will limit warming. Highs 
range from around 80 north to the middle-upper 80s south. 


Showers approach from the west late this afternoon...spreading over 
the region this evening and tonight as the aforementioned wave 
crosses the region. Have increased probability of precipitation Richmond southward to 70 percent 
tonight...tapering back to 30-40 percent across the north as high 
pressure builds across New England. Low-level Theta-E ridge will 
provide low-level moisture...with soundings indicating a deep moist 
layer with precipitable waters  prognosticated around 2 inches. The result will be 
moderate to heavy rainfall. Corfidi vectors indicate good forward 
propagation...which will limit training. Thus a Flood Watch is not 
anticipated at this time. Little instability into the mixed phase layer 
will result in only a chance of thunder. 


24 hour quantitative precipitation forecast amounts forecast in the one half to one inch range 
Richmond south with less than one half inch north. Sref/gefs probs 
of greater than 1 inch are less than 30 percent...so localized amounts 
of 1 to 1.5 inches are possible. Low temperatures in the upper 60s to low 
70s. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Saturday/... 
unsettled weather continues into the short term period as the surface 
frntal boundary remains over the middle Atlantic. Rain showers/thunderstorms will be again 
likely Friday/Friday night (60-70% pops) with hi deep layer moisture 
(1000-500 mb relative humidity ~85%) and still some upper-level forcing. The front 
starts sliding S by late Friday night/Sat with lower probability of precipitation Sat than 
previous days but still a 40-50% chance for most areas other than 
far northern portions of the forecast area (30%). Total storm quantitative precipitation forecast will be about 
1-2" with locally higher amounts due to convection. Decided to 
hold off on any flood watches for now with still some model 
uncertainty over where the axis of heaviest rain will occur and 
most areas staying below flash flood guidance. Temperatures below normal each 
day...with highs avgg in the upper 70s to middle 80s. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
upstream blocking pattern results in little movement of overall 
synoptic features through the end of the Holiday weekend and into the 
middle of next week. A general broad trough remains in place along 
the East Coast keeping conditions rather unsettled through the 
medium range and extended. 


While models agree on the overall pattern there are some differences 
with the timing of low pressure development over the middle Atlantic is 
response to the upper trough. The boundary is prognosticated to lift north 
as a warm front Monday with a trough lingering across the area 
Tuesday. Thus look for chance probability of precipitation each day as timing of any one 
disturbance rather problematic this far out. 
Highs sun in the M-u80s...85-90 Monday through Wednesday. Lows u60s-m70s. 


&& 


Aviation /16z Thursday through Monday/... 
weak frontal boundary slowly settles S across Virginia/southeast Maryland today. An 
area of rain showers will be crossing the forecast area this morning. Mainly VFR 
ceilings/visibilities associated west/ rain showers. Models show a break in the rain showers 
midday into this afternoon. Possible isolated/scattered convection by lt this 
aftn/eve. Another short wave approaches from the west overnight night west/ possibly 
another rnd of widespread rainfall and IFR/MVFR conds. The frontal 
boundary remains over the area through the weekend with continued 
chances for shras/tstms...especially Friday/Friday night. Mainly VFR conds are 
expected outside of precipitation. 


&& 


Marine... 
unsettled weather conds expected over the waters into at least sun. 
Weak frontal boundary to settle S over the Virginia/Maryland waters today...then remain nearly 
stationary into Sat (nr Hampton rds). SW winds 10 knots or less S of the 
boundary...vrb-NNE winds 10 knots or less along-north of the boundary. Waves in the 
Bay average 1-2 feet and seas on the coastal waters average 2-4 feet into the 
weekend with sub-Small Craft Advisory conds continuing through the weekend. The 
stalled front will also result in several episodes of rain showers/thunderstorms 
into sun. Gusty winds/heavy rain possible in any storms the next few days. 


&& 


Climate... 
June 2015 climate: 


At norfolk: 
*avg temperature of 78.7 f ranks as the 7th warmest on record. 
*Total precipitation of 8.34" ranks as 5th wettest on record.

Precipitation total of 6.05" did not attain a top 10 ranking at 
ric Airport...but many locations in the metropolitan area...received in 
excess of 10.00 inches for the month.
