NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
958 PM EDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Synopsis... 
a weak frontal boundary drops south across the area 
tonight...then stalls over central North Carolina on Sunday. The 
stalled front lifts back northeast as a warm front Sunday 
night...before another cold front crosses the area Monday night. 
High pressure builds back in from the southwest on Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Sunday morning/... 
current analysis showing strong surface high over Ontario 
Canada...with a weak backdoor cold front near the Mason Dixon 
line...slowly pushing south. Weak high pressure resides over the 
forecast area...and should see mslp rise a few mb overnight as the Canadian 
high builds southeast and pushes the front south into NC. Earlier showers 
affecting interior NE NC are still ongoing into east central Virginia 
but have diminished within the akq County Warning Area (and should remain S of the 
County Warning Area overnight). Mainly clear skies prevail other than high 
clouds...did have some broken low clouds near the coast in NE NC 
earlier but these have generally dissipated. Overall...expect mostly 
clear skies overnight...partly cloudy in NE NC and south central 
Virginia near the NC border. May see some increase in low clouds off the 
ocean into southeast Virginia towards daybreak as well as easterly flow 
increases. Lows ranging from around 50 f on the Eastern Shore to the 
upper 50s across NE NC and south central Virginia. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Sunday morning through Tuesday/... 
surface hi pressure shifts off the coast Sun morning with low level flow becoming 
east-southeast. Meanwhile...low pressure will be tracking toward the lower 
Great Lakes states...pushing a warm front NE toward the middle- 
Atlantic region. Models do hint at possible stratus early Sun morning...especially 
over NE NC/southeast Virginia...otherwise starting out sunny-partly cloudy. Expecting 
incsg clouds midday through the afternoon (from W-e). Latest models 
agree west/ previous run with respect to timing of arrival of any rain. Have 
chance probability of precipitation as far east as a line from lku-ric-ntu by 16-18z 
sun...incrsg to likely/categorical probability of precipitation from about ecg-occluded frontal passage on west by 
00z...while keeping probability of precipitation at or below 20% on the Eastern Shore. Hi temperatures in 
the M/u60s...with some l70s southeast. 


Significant inflow of deep layered moisture into the region Sun night as 
warm front makes progress NE through the forecast area. May be periods of 
moderate/heavy rain...and would not rule out isolated (elevated) 
thunder. The area of rain to shift off the CST Monday morning...W/ 
trough aloft approaching from the west by late Monday afternoon (likely 
leading to scattered shwrs/tstms). Will continue to highlight possible 
strong/isolated severe storms (in hwo) for (lt) Monday aftn/eve. Otw...vrb 
clouds-partly sunny midday/afternoon on Monday. High temperatures in the 70s 
at the CST...80 to 85f elsewhere. 


Cold front crosses the forecast area Monday night (w/ scattered probability of precipitation...highest NNE-cntrl)...W/ 
drying/cooler westerly flow taking over into Tuesday. Partly/mostly sunny Tuesday 
west/ hi temperatures in the u60s to near 70f at the CST...and l/m70s elsewhere. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
upper low remains in vic of the Great Lakes through the extended period 
thanks to blocky flow over the higher latitudes. Fast westerly/zonal flow 
prognosticated over the local area. Surface high pressure builds over the southeast 
states/southern middle Atlantic Tuesday night-Wednesday morning...sliding offshore 
Wednesday afternoon. The result is a mostly sunny to partly cloudy sky 
Wednesday with highs right around normal...upper 60s to 70 inland and middle- 
upper 60s coastal areas. Potent shortwave rounds the base of the 
stacked upper low into the Ohio Valley late Wednesday-Wednesday night. 
Associated fast moving cold front reached the central Appalachians 
Wednesday night...crossing the local area early Thursday. Front expected to 
stall vic NC Thursday night due to westerly flow aloft. Question will be how 
much moisture return there is Thursday as European model (ecmwf) remains dry and the GFS 
rather moist. Difference is low level southwesterly flow in GFS compared to 
westerly flow in the European model (ecmwf). Trended toward drier European model (ecmwf)...dropping probability of precipitation to 
silent Thursday-Thursday night. Highs Thursday remaining around 
normal...generally in the middle-upper 60s. Cool Canadian high pressure 
prognosticated to build into the Ohio Valley Thursday night-Fri...extending into 
the middle-Atlantic region. The result will be dry conditions...northwesterly 
winds and below normal temperatures Friday...generally in the low-middle 60s 
inland to upper 50s-low 60s coastal areas. Models picking up on a 
southern stream system crossing the southeast states Sat. Mentioned slight 
chance probability of precipitation southern Virginia/NE NC...closest to the frontal boundary and best 
moisture return. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Sunday through Thursday/... 
a cold front over southern PA at 00z will move S overnight and pass 
through the taf sites Sunday morning. Expect light onshore flow 
which may help to produce some stratus or fog at some locations. IFR 
conds are already present near the coast east of ecg which is handled 
well by the NAM MOS. The NAM MOS also puts IFR at orf by 00z which 
will not happen...at least not that early. NE winds develop behind 
the front as low pressure approaches from the west. Rain overspreads 
the area (except at sby) toward the end of the 00z taf period. IFR 
conds may develop soon after the rain begins per the GFS MOS. 


Outlook...Sunday night...rain and associated degraded flight 
conditions are expected to affect all areas...with precipitation 
diminishing from SW to NE during the 08z to 13z time frame Monday. 
Another impulse tracks across the region Monday afternoon/evening 
bringing a chance of showers/tstms. High pressure builds across the 
southeast states Tuesday and Wednesday as low pressure lingers over 
the Great Lakes. This will allow dry conditions to return and 
continue into Thursday. 


&& 


Marine... 
latest weather analysis depicts weak high pressure over the water this 
afternoon with low pressure over New England. Winds generally at or below 10 
knots...seas 2-3 feet and waves 1-2 feet. Low pressure pushes off the New 
England coast tonight as a backdoor cold front drops north-S along the 
coast. Front drops over the waters late tonight. Winds shift to 
the NE behind the front...increasing to 10-15 knots. Select hi-res 
guidance indicating a brief uptick in winds to ~20 knots immediately 
behind the front over the Bay and coastal waters. Surge expected 
to be short lived...so will handle with short fused products if 
needed. High pressure builds across New England sun as low 
pressure lifts into the Great Lakes region. Resultant gradient 
will produce Small Craft Advisory conditions over all waters late sun-Sun night 
(minus the upper james). Persistent NE flow of 15-20 knots over the 
coastal waters will result in seas building to 4-6 feet Sun 
afternoon (possibly sooner). Secondary low pressure prognosticated to 
develop just west of the waters Sun night...helping ramp up speeds 
to 20-25 knots over the Bay/coastal waters and 15-20 knots eastern Virginia 
rivers/sound. Surface low and attendant warm front lift north of the 
waters Monday with southerly winds diminishing to 10-15 knots. Small Craft Advisory headlines 
for the Bay/rivers/sound drop off late Sun night...but 4-6 feet seas 
persist through the day Monday. Headlines have been extended for the 
coastal waters through 4th period/Mon. Cold front approaches from the 
west late Monday-Monday evening...crossing the waters late Monday night- 
Tuesday morning. Small Craft Advisory conditions are not anticipate at this time. High 
pressure builds across the southeast states-southern middle Atlantic tues-weds. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
period of onshore flow is expected through Sunday...before winds 
switch to the south Sunday night and Monday. The result will be 
tidal anomalies around 1 feet above normal most tidal gages. 
Combination of tidal anomalies and high astro tides (new moon 
phase) will push most sites over hat during high tide Sunday 
night and Monday. Portions of the Upper Bay and Ocean City will 
approach minor flooding thresholds.
