NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
326 PM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
a dry cold front crosses the area late tonight. High pressure builds 
back into and over the area Sunday through Tuesday night. The next 
cold front crosses the area late Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 
dry cold front crosses the area after midnight. Little if any moisture 
to work with...scattered clouds at best. SW winds shift to west then northwest late. 
This keeps airmass mixed preventing temperatures from dropping to far. Lows 
in the u40s-l50s...xcpt m50s at the beaches. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Tuesday/... 
cold front pushes into the Carolinas Sunday morning as high prs 
builds in from the north. Weak cold air advection combined with a compressed prs 
gradient behind frontal passage results in a well mixed airmass Sunday. Expect 
breezy to windy conditions (15-25 with g30 mph) along the coast... 
lighter winds (10-20 mph) west of the Bay. The downslpoing component 
to the wind allows temperatures to reach between 70-75. 


The high builds over the area Sunday night and Monday...then shifts 
offshore Tuesday. Dry through the period with pt to mostly sunny days 
and fair nights. Cool Sun night. Lows in the u30s-l40s...45-50 at 
the beaches. 850 mb temperatures around 13c results in highs u60s-l70s Monday. 


Return flow sets up Monday night and Tuesday resulting in a warming trend. 
Lows Monday night in the u40s-m50s. 850 mb temperatures around 16c sprt highs in the 
u70s-l80s. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
lots of uncertainty with this forecast especially toward next 
weekend. Initial front passes through on Wednesday. Slight 
differences of timing on the front. Have chance probability of precipitation of showers with 
this front as it pushes through. Then beginning Friday into Saturday 
the models diverge. Have the European model (ecmwf) developing a deep cutoff low over 
the southeast US while the GFS has the cutoff developing more toward 
New England with a more progressive pattern. The European model (ecmwf) is toward the 
deepest ensemble solution. However the overall upper air pattern is 
such that it could support the cutoff over southeastern US. Will 
have to watch how future model runs develop. Either way starting 
on Thursday colder air begins to arrive and we have the coldest 
air this fall across the area by Saturday. This drops highs into 
the 50s Friday and Saturday with some upper 40s possible in western 
sections. Overnight lows will drop into the 30s. If the winds stay 
up should keep temperatures above freezing over all areas. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Saturday through Thursday/... 
a trough followed by a weak dry cold front will pass through the 
region this evening/overnight and will bring scattered clouds of 7-10 kft 
to the taf sites between 25/2100z northwest through 26/0600z southeast. SW or west 
winds will veer to the northwest and become breezy for sun morng into Sun 
afternoon. Gusts will average 15-20 knots inland with higher gusts around 
25 knots possible alng the immediate CST. Hi pressure settles over the 
middle Atlantic region Sun night and Monday...then slides off the CST for Monday 
night into Wednesday morng. Conditions will continue to be dry/VFR with 
winds becoming south-southwest at generally less than 15 knots Monday afternoon. The 
next cold front is expected to cross the area Wednesday into Wednesday eveng. 


&& 


Marine... 
a weak cold frontal passage will occur late tonight into Sun 
morning. West winds at or below 15kt will persist through the evening and 
then veer to the northwest behind the cold front. Speeds will increase to 
due to low level cold air advection (10-15kt rivers/sound...15-20kt 
with gusts to 25kt ches Bay...15-25kt with gusts to 25 to 30kt 
coastal waters Fenwick Island to Virginia/NC border). Seas will be slow to 
rise due to a west-northwest direction but should average 3-4ft from 10-20nm. 
Up to 5ft seas will be possible near 20nm from Fenwick Island to 
Chincoteague. Small Craft Advisory flags have been raised for ches Bay and coastal 
waters from Fenwick Island to the Virginia/NC border beginning after 
midnight tonight and persisting through Sunday. High pressure 
settles over the waters on Monday and then slides eastward off the coast 
Monday night through Tuesday. A strong cold front will cross the 
water Wednesday and Wednesday night. This will again generate small 
craft conditions middle and late week. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
aftr coordinate with surrounding offices / state agencies...will not issue 
any fire danger statements at this time. Plan is to continue to highlight the 
gusty winds & rh's around 30% across the Eastern Shore in the fwf. Rh's over 
the Piedmont will drop into the m20s but with less wind. 


&&
