NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
351 am EDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure drifts across the middle Atlantic region today...then 
slides off the coast tonight into Thursday. A frontal boundary 
will develop along the coast by Friday...then move inland 
through the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
very comfy air over the forecast area at this time. Broken-overcast clouds (cigs mainly 6-8kft) 
across portions of central/scntrl Virginia holding up temperatures a bit...otherwise 
most temperatures (away from the immediate cst) from the m50s to m60s. 
Been watching area of rain showers tracking through portions of scntrl Virginia 
while slowly dwindling (past couple hrs). Will hang onto slight chance 
probability of precipitation near the Virginia/NC border on into interior NE NC through the early 
morning hours. Broad/unseasonably amplified trough remains over the eastern 
Continental U.S....continuing to provide mainly dry/comfy weather for the forecast area today. Expecting 
p/msny conds...W/ dewpoints remaining from the 50s to l60s...and hi temperatures 
avgg 5 to 10 degrees f (once agn)...ranging from the u70s along the 
immediate CST to l/m80s inland. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Friday/... 
another comfy night tonight west/ clear to pcldy conds. Most low temperatures 
ranging from the u50s to m60s. Trough aloft weakens/shifts a bit 
westward Thursday into Friday. Weak surface hi pressure will be off the CST Thursday...with 
south-southeast low level flow across the area. Only a very slight increase in 
humidity is expected...otherwise partly to mostly sunny with high 
temperatures in the M/u80s. By Friday...Bermuda high pressure begins to 
rebound across the western Atlantic...W/ deep layered southwesterly flow aloft 
(ovr the eastern seaboard) and a surface frontal boundary developing 
along the Virginia/NC coast. The combination of these features will 
result in incrsd rain showers/thunderstorm chances locally (especially aftn)...and 
thus will carry solid chance probability of precipitation (30-40%) Friday. With plenty of clouds 
around and precipitation possible...hi temperatures Friday will likely be a touch 
cooler than Thursday...in the l/m80s. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
forecast rationale remains largely the same for medium range period. 
Persistent upper level trough over the eastern third of the Continental U.S. 
Will retrograde back west into the MS valley ahead of the building 
western Atlantic ridge. This will allow for precipitable water values/deep layer 
moisture ramping up through the period. Thus, scattered rain showers expected 
through the period ahead of the advancing coastal front/inverted 
trough, which will locate along/just off the mid-Atlantic/southeast 
coast Saturday, eventually moving inland across the coastal plain by 
Monday. Given that there is no significant forcing mechanism to key 
in on, will lean towards climatology and use diurnally driven probability of precipitation 
through the Sat-Tuesday time period. For temps, look for highs to remain 
at or below climatology normal...generally ranging into the l-M 80s 
Sunday/Monday...85 to 90 on Tuesday ahead of an approaching cold 
front. Early morning lows in the 60s Sun morning, incrementally 
increasing to u60s to around 70 by early Monday/Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
weak area of high pressure will slide over the area Erly this 
morning. Middle level wave passing through the middle-Atlantic will be 
strong enough to help initiate some very isolated showers across 
the area. Expect winds to veer to the S/southeast this afternoon with a 
scattered cumulus field developing. 


Outlook...dry weather is forecast through Thursday. There will be a 
a chance for mainly afternoon/evening thunderstorms Friday. VFR is expected 
outside of precipitation through Friday. 


Note: observations from ksby are not readily available due to a 
communications problem. Return to service is unknown at this time. 
However...current information may be obtained by calling into the 
ASOS site directly. Amend not schedule will be appended to the ksby taf 
until further notice. 


&& 


Marine... 
weak surface hi pressure over the middle Atlantic today will lead to benign marine 
conditions...winds at or below 10 knots and waves/seas at or below 2 feet. The hi slides 
offshore tonight...with winds becoming S/southeast ~10 knots. This will continue into 
Thursday with seas over northern coastal waters building to 3 feet. A coastal/inverted trough 
develops near the middle-Atlantic CST Friday through sun...with sub-Small Craft Advisory 
conditions expected through the period. Winds will continue out of the 
S on average with rain chances increasing over the waters. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...none.
