NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
646 PM EST Wednesday Dec 17 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds into the area from the northwest this 
afternoon through Friday. One low pressure area will track from 
the Gulf Coast states east northeast to just off the North 
Carolina coast Saturday morning into Sunday morning. Another low 
will move northeast off the southeast and middle Atlantic coast late 
Sunday night through Monday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Thursday morning/... 
drier northwest flow will filter into the region tonight into Thursday morng...as 
a piece of hi pressure builds in from the west-northwest. Mostly clear and cold with 
low temperatures ranging from the upper 20s to middle 30s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Thursday morning through Saturday/... 
dry conditions will prevail Thursday into early Friday night...as dry/zonal 
flow dominates the region and surface hi pressure builds across the Great Lakes 
into southeast Canada. Shortwave energy tracking from west-east in fast flow aloft 
will produce a little more cloudiness Thursday night into Friday morng. 
Otherwise...mostly clear or partly cloudy Thursday through Friday...with hi 
temperatures ranging through the 40s both days. Lows Thursday night mainly in the 
upper 20s to lower 30s. 


Friday night through Sat...leaning closer to the slightly faster GFS...esply 
regarding onset/overspreading of precipitation across the region. At this 
time...went closer to the GFS thicknesses/model soundings...esply 
during Sat morng with the onset of precipitation...where a chance of sleet 
(maybe some snow) was added generally north of a South Hill to 
Williamsburg line. By late morng or early afternoon...precipitation will become 
just rain everywhere...as layers warm and surface temperatures climb into 
the upper 30s to middle 40s. Highest quantitative precipitation forecast amts with this system could 
end up across extreme southern/southeast Virginia and NE NC. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
drier air filters in from the northwest Saturday night behind the departing 
low. Low temperatures should eventually fall to around 30 northwest to the 
upper 30s southeast. However...any light rain should end prior to any 
surface temperatures falling to at or below 32f. Weak high pressure should 
prevail Sunday...before another low forms off the southeast coast 
and tracks NE Sunday night into Monday. At this time temperatures 
appear warm enough for only rain. However...there could be a brief 
mix of rain and sleet across the northwest Piedmont Sunday night. Middle-level 
ridging builds in behind this system with milder conditions expected 
by Tuesday. Low pressure tracks west of the mountains Tuesday night 
into Wednesday bringing the potential for rain. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Thursday through Monday/... 
VFR and generally light winds are expected during the 00z taf 
period. West winds shift to north/northwest during the pre dawn hours as a 
surface trough moves through. Some middle and high level clouds may 
appear from time to time. 


Outlook...high pressure dominates with dry weather through Friday. 
The next low pressure system impacts the Middle Atlantic States 
Saturday with widespread light rain and possible IFR conds. High 
pressure builds to the north of the area Sunday but easterly flow 
could maintain MVFR ceilings. 


&& 


Marine... 
surface high pressure builds in from the northwest tonight through 
Friday. A trough of low pressure slides by to the north tonight followed 
by shallow cold air advection across the northern portion of the marine area. The 
current Small Craft Advisory for the northern ocean zones was expanded to include the northern 
two Bay zones. A 20-25kt northwest wind is expected across the northern ocean 
zones...which could briefly build seas to 4-5ft out near 20nm. 
Generally expecting low-end (15-20kt) Small Craft Advisory conditions in the Northern Bay 
zones. Similar conditions persist Thursday and Friday with the wind 
gradually decreasing. Low pressure tracks east-northeast to immediately off the 
Carolina coast Saturday morning through Sunday morning. Another low 
tracks NE off the southeast and middle Atlantic coasts late Sunday 
night into Monday. There is too much uncertainty at this point to 
speculate on the potential of Small Craft Advisory conditions. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory from 10 PM this evening to 10 am EST 
Thursday for anz630-631-650-652.
