NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
944 PM EDT Monday Oct 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure moves into the region tonight and Tuesday...locating 
off the northeast coast for much of the middle to late week period. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Tuesday morning/... 
surface high pressure was centered well off the coast this evening 
allowing for a relaxing pressure gradient along the coast and inland with 
southerly winds 10 knots or less. Meanwhile...an upper level trough digs 
into the Great Lakes/northeast tonight...with a surface cold front 
reaching The Spine of the Appalachians around 12z Tuesday. 


Shortwave energy rounding the base of the trough has been 
providing weak lift supporting a thin band of isolated showers on 
radar over the western County Warning Area...however due to the dry air in place 
in the lower levels most of the radar are resulting in virga. Bufr 
soundings show overall dry airmass in place tonight (pw's at or below 
0... it will be hard to get much of precipitation to reach the 
ground. The hrrr ties to develop a thin band of showers east of 
I-95 around 06z...but this appears to be overdone. That said 
cannot rule out a few brief sprinkles overnight. Overall dry 
conditions are expected through tonight with some increasing cloud 
cover. The cloud cover and light SW flow could keep some areas 
from reaching forecast lows keeping conditions milder. Lows 
generally in the upper west to middle 50s at the coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Tuesday morning through Thursday/... 
flow amplifies during the short term as a blocking pattern develops 
over eastern Canada. Additional energy dives south over the Great 
Lakes/Ohio Valley Tuesday thanks to a ~100 knots jet streak diving southward 
from Canada. As a result...upper low prognosticated to develop over the 
middle-Atlantic into the NE states late Tuesday. The upper low will 
progress slowly eastward Tuesday night into Wednesday...locating off the 
Delaware-Maryland-Virginia coast late Wednesday. With the upper low pivoting across the 
local area Tuesday/Tuesday night...will see a better chance for showers 
develop especially north/NE where best upward motion is 
anticipated. Have chance (pops 25-40%) along and NE of a line from 
lku-ofp-mfv on Tuesday...then best chance (30-50%) mainly along the 
Virginia coast and onto the Eastern Shore Tuesday night. Elsewhere...will 
carry no higher then 20% probability of precipitation. Highs Tuesday in the upper 60s northwest to 
middle 70s southeast. Lows Tuesday night in the middle 40s to middle 50s. Mostly 
cloudy north to partly cloudy south during thie time. 


Deep upper trough/closed low slowly moves east and offshore Wednesday. 
Forecast soundings fairly dry aloft over inland sections as the 
trough/surface reflection swing offshore. Will therefore keep chance probability of precipitation 
limited to areas along and NE of the I-64 corridor Wednesday...with 
emphasis on the Northern Neck and Eastern Shore (30-50% pops). 
Could end up being dry over far SW zones. Cooler Wednesday with highs 
only 60-65. 


The closed low moves farther NE Wednesday night into Thursday...locating off 
the New England coast by 00z Friday. Any leftover shower chances 
by then will be limited to the Eastern Shore (20%). Decreasing 
clouds are also expected across interior Virginia. Lows Wednesday night in the 
low 40s to low 50s. Cool again Thursday with highs 60-65. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
low pressure lifts to the NE Thursday night through Saturday as 
upper ridging expands eastward from the central US. A weak trough 
clips the northern middle-Atlantic Saturday night and quickly moves off the 
coast Sunday. Middle/upper level ridging builds over the eastern US early 
next week. Overall...dry conditions should prevail through the 
medium range period. High temperatures should average in the middle 60s 
to around 70 Friday and Saturday...and trend upward into the upper 
60s to low 70s Sunday...and potentially 70-75 by Monday. Lows should 
range from the low/middle 40s northwest...to the low/middle 50s for southeast coastal 
locations. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
VFR weather is forecast through 00z taf period. Expecting periods of middle 
level cloudiness (cigs mainly 10-15kft) tonight west/ scattered-broken cloudiness (mainly 10-12 
kft) early Tuesday morning lowering to 5-6k feet Tuesday afternoon. No precipitation is expected 
overnight with low levels too dry but there is a chance for showers 
mainly at sby by Tuesday afternoon (not in taf). Light S winds become west 
near 10 knots toward midday Tuesday as a weak cold front moves 
through. 


Outlook...low pressure off the middle Atlantic coast deepens and 
lingers off the New Jersey coast through middle week. There will be a 
chance for showers and MVFR ceilings (especially eastern portions) Tuesday night 
and Wednesday ending Wednesday night. MVFR ceilings may linger into early Thursday 
but no significant IFR is indicated. The low pressure system moves 
away from the coast and high pressure builds in from the north 
Thursday through Saturday with dry and VFR conds. 


&& 


Marine... 
surface high pressure slides offshore tonight...allowing the wind to 
remain S/SW. Expect sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions to prevail with wind speeds 
averaging up to 15-20 knots across northern coastal waters...and 
generally 10-15 knots elsewhere. The next cold front will slowly cross 
the coast late Tuesday afternoon/evening...followed by eventual Small Craft Advisory 
conditions later Wednesday into Wednesday evening as surface low 
pressure then deepens off the coast. This system is expected to 
stall offshore Thursday through the end of the week bringing a 
prolonged period of Small Craft Advisory conditions. With flow being offshore from 
the northwest...seas would tend to stay capped at 5-6 feet and tidal flooding 
is not expected. North/northwest flow is expected to continue into next weekend 
with speeds diminishing to 10-15kt and seas subsiding.
