NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
326 am EDT Monday may 2 2016 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will approach from the west today...then stall over 
the region Monday night into Tuesday. The front gradually pushes 
off the coast Tuesday night. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
latest surface analysis places remnant boundary aligned from near the mouth 
of the ches Bay on west-northwest through central Virginia. Lingering low level maritime 
air to the NE of the boundary has resulted in development of very low 
ceilings and patchy fog...to the S and west...vrb ceilings...warmer and more 
humid. An area of rain showers/thunderstorms has scoured some of the low level 
cloudiness out across portions of central Virginia...not quite sure that will 
take place farther east (deeper into the maritime air all the way to 
the eastern shore). 


Hesistant to quickly erode maritime air over NE portions of forecast area 
today (esp this mrng/midday). Otherwise...becoming warmer/marginally 
unstable west/ vrb clouds-mostly cloudy conds. Cold front from the west-northwest will be 
slowly approaching the forecast area this afternoon/early evening. The combo of the 
approaching fnt/heating-marginally unstable conds will likely 
result in isolated/scattered rain showers/thunderstorms across forecast area this afternoon. Storm Prediction Center has all but 
southeast Virginia/NE NC in slight risk severe...which will be covered in severe weather potential statement. Hi 
temperatures from the l-m70s on the Eastern Shore to the u70s-l80s elsewhere. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Wednesday/... 
cold front enters the forecast area early tonight...then stalls. Upper level low pressure 
exiting the MS valley results in incrsg moisture into the mdatlc 
states by lt this evening. A significant wave of moisture expected to 
move along the front as it slows its progression due to the fnt 
becoming nearly parallel to the SW flow aloft. Cold front remains slo to 
push to the CST through Tuesday evening. Will have a prolonged period of 
likely or higher probability of precipitation tonight into Tuesday afternoon. Main concern would be 
for locally heavy rain rather than wind/hail. Will include a chance 
of thunderstorms Monday night/Tuesday morning all areas...then only across far southern/southeast 
Virginia and NE NC Tuesday afternoon. Low temperatures tonight from the l60s northwest to the m60s 
southeast. Hi temperatures Tuesday from the u60s-l70s north/central to u70s S. Diminishing 
chances for precipitation Wednesday...though west/ uncertainty will maintain 20-40% 
probability of precipitation along with partly-mostly cloudy conds. Hi temperatures Wednesday again from 
the u60s-l70s north/central to u70s S. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
an unsettled weather pattern with slightly below normal temperatures 
are forecast for late this week through next weekend. An upper level 
low moves south out of the eastern Great Lakes and settles south 
into the Middle Atlantic States by early Friday. The upper low and the 
associated surface low lingers near the coast into next weekend. 
There will be a chance for showers most periods from Wednesday night 
through Saturday. Mainly dry weather is expected Saturday night and 
Sunday as high pressure begins to build over the area. 


High temperatures range from the upper 60s to lower 70s except ranging 
into the upper 70s across southern Virginia and NE NC on Sunday. Slightly cooler 
readings are indicated near the coast. Lows range from 50 to 55 
except for some middle to upper 40s inland rural areas Friday and 
Saturday mornings. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Monday through Friday/... 
a band of rain and embedded thunderstorms will move through kric 
until 07z...and ksby through 09z. A warm front in the vicinity of 
kric/ksby will keep IFR/LIFR conds in places through the late 
morning hours. Although VFR conds exist at kphf/korf/kecg as of 
06z...expect ceilings to lower to IFR around 09z and last through 15z 
before gradually improving. Expect all taf sites to become VFR 
this afternoon although it will take the longest (21z) at ksby. 
Another round of showers and thunderstorms is expected to develop 
across this region this afternoon/evening in advance of a cold 
front but specifics are to ill-defined at this time to include in 06z 
tafs. More widespread showers and thunderstorms will occur late Monday night 
into Tuesday as the frontal boundary passes. 


Chance of showers and low ceilings/visibilities will continue through at least 
Friday as a series of disturbances impact the area. 


&& 


Marine... 
a stationary frontal boundary is draped across the Eastern Shore 
this morning with east-NE winds across the middle ches Bay and coastal 
waters north of Cape Charles...and S winds across the lower ches Bay 
and southern coastal waters. This boundary will drift very slowly 
north through the early afternoon when winds should become S-SW all 
waters at 10-15 knots. Visibilities will remain 1-3 nm across the northern 
waters through the morning hours with the boundary nearby. Will 
leave Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas in place across the northern waters 
this morning as seas are around 4 feet 20 nm out. Will re-evaluate by 
7 am to see whether or not true 5 feet seas materialize and whether or 
not to cancel Small Craft Advisory early. 


A cold front will approach the waters from the west by late tonight 
then drop south across the waters on Tuesday with a wind shift to the north- 
NE behind the front into Tuesday evening. At this time does not look like Small Craft Advisory conds 
will be realized with the frontal passage or Post-frontal...with 
winds staying at or below 15 knots and waves 1-2 feet/seas 2-4 feet. Sub-Small Craft Advisory 
conditions are expected to continue through at least Friday. 
However...bouts of showers and thunderstorms are expected each day. 
&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas until 5 PM EDT this 
afternoon for anz650-652.
