NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
809 am EDT Sat Nov 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
a strong low pressure system will develop off the North Carolina 
coast today...pushing northeast of the area tonight into Sunday. 
High pressure returns over the region late Sunday through Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
latest surface analysis reveals ~1001 mb low pressure off the middle Atlantic 
CST with a weaker second area of low pressure developing off the SC/NC 
CST. Aloft...a very potent upper-level trough continues to dig across 
the southeast states. There are currently two areas of note in terms of 
precipitation...one just off the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia CST and another approaching the 
Virginia Piedmont. Both areas are struggling to make it into the County Warning Area as 
subsidence remains with somewhat dry low levels as well. Therefore 
kept probability of precipitation mainly in the chance range this morng...increasing through 
the day as lift and moisture increase. With the best forcing 
associated with the upper trough remaining S of the area today...not 
expecting much in the way of heavy rain...with overall quantitative precipitation forecast amounts 
being minimal and generally less than 0.25in. The highest amounts 
(0.25-0.50in) should be across the lower Eastern Shore where the 
duration of rain should be longest. 


With surface cyclogenesis off the Outer Banks this 
afternoon/evening...a period of strong north wind (25-35 miles per hour with 
gusts to ~45 mph) is expected along coastal zones as the low 
deepens off the coast and strong cold air advection commences. Areas of minor 
tidal flooding are expected along the Atlantic beaches and lower ches 
Bay (see coastal flooding section below). A Wind Advisory has been 
issued for Outer Banks Currituck starting this evening for wind 
gusts up to 45-50 miles per hour. Will maintain mention of strong winds over 
other coastal locations in the severe weather potential statement. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Monday/... 
rain will taper off tonight with subsidence in the wake of the 
departing wave. The sky clears out quickly into Sunday morning 
(although a band of SC could develop off the Bay Sunday due to the 
cooler drier air advecting over sst's ~62-64f). The surface high of 
Canadian origin sinks from the Ohio Valley into the southeast 
beginning Sunday. This will usher in the coolest air of the season 
to date. Highs Sunday should range from around 50 N/NE...to the 
middle 50s S. The first widespread freeze of the season should occur 
late Sun night/early Monday morning as lows drop to 29-32 over the 
interior coastal plain and Piedmont. Enough surface pressure gradient 
will likely linger closer to the coast...which will keep lows in 
the middle/upper 30s. 


The high shifts offshore Monday...with south-southwest flow resuming across the 
region. Highs should rebound into the upper 50s/lower 60s under a 
mostly sunny sky. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
medium range period characterized by general moderation of 
temperatures to begin the period as high pressure slides off the 
southeast coast Tuesday/early Wednesday with resultant 
south-southwest flow allowing maxima to rebound into the 60s to 
lower 70s Tuesday and Wednesday, with early morning lows moderating 
back into the 40s to near 50 Wednesday and Thursday morning. 


Aloft, upper pattern will be characterized by upper ridging, which 
will gradually break down and slip offshore late Wed/Thu. Northern 
stream disturbance traversing the Canadian prairies into the upper 
Great Lakes during the midweek period, with the associated weak 
surface front dropping into the area by late Wednesday ngt/Thursday. Once 
again, the best forcing/dynamics look to remain confined to the 
north/northeast. Therefore, suspect the frontal passage will once again have 
little moisture with which to work. Will keep pop no higher than 20% 
for Wed/Thu...with only a slight drop off in temperature Post 
frontal late in the into the 60s, with early morning lows near climatology 
values Friday and Sat mornings. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
low pressure off the middle Atlantic CST early this morng...will 
strengthen offshr while lifting NE today into sun morng. North-northeast 
flow/winds will increase across the area...esply later this morng 
into this eveng. This will result in lowering clouds to MVFR ceilings 
and isolated IFR ceilings along with -ra. The low will pull away to off 
the New England CST and toward the Canadian Maritimes late tonight into 
Sun afternoon. VFR conditions should return to all taf sites sun 
morng...but gusty northwest winds will linger through the day on sun. Hi 
pressure builds into and over the region Sun afternoon into Tuesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
low pressure was off just off the middle Atlantic CST early this morng...and 
will intensify today into tonight...as upper air low pressure energy dives east-southeast 
off the coastal Carolinas then lifts NE. Have adjusted Small Craft Advisory/Gale Warning 
headlines while also extending them through most of sun. For gale 
warnings...will have gusts to around 40 knots or gusts up to 45 knots...esply 
for tonight into sun morng. Waves/seas will build quickly this afternoon 
into tonight...as north winds rapidly increase due to strengthening low 
pressure off the CST. Northwest winds will gradually diminish sun eveng into 
Monday morng...as the low moves into the Canadian Maritimes and hi 
pressure builds in from the west. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
low pressure is expected to rapidly strengthen off the coast late 
this afternoon into early Sunday morning. Strong north-northwest winds are 
likely to result in tidal departures on the order of 1.5-2 feet 
above normal this afternoon and tonight along the Atlantic coast 
and Lower Bay. Minor tidal flooding is expected for these 
locations as the surge appears to coincide with the high tide 
cycle tonight/early Sunday morning. Some of the surge guidance 
suggests the potential exists for a brief period of moderate 
flooding at Ocean City Maryland. However...there are considerable 
discrepancies /on the order of 1 foot or more/ between etss 
guidance and estofs guidance. Current forecasts are between etss 
and estofs. Will continue to monitor and evaluate later guidance 
for the need to upgrade to a coastal Flood Warning.
