NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1019 am EST sun Feb 14 2016 


Synopsis... 
Arctic high pressure moves off the middle Atlantic coast late this 
afternoon. Low pressure over the deep south Monday...lifts 
northeast across the middle Atlantic region Tuesday morning. The 
trailing cold front moves off the coast Tuesday afternoon. High 
pressure builds over the area Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
near 1035 mb Arctic hi pressure remains over the region sun. North-northwest winds remain 
gusty to 20-25 miles per hour eastern portions at this time...will be waning through this 
afternoon. Next low pressure system will be tracking southeast through the Midwest to 
Kentucky/Tennessee today...spreading at least hi level moisture to the mountains (and 
this far e) during this aftn/eve. Despite mainly sunny conds...temperatures 
will struggle to rise above the l-m20s near the CST and M-u20s inland. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Tuesday/... 
models close in track / timing for the next systm but differ in 
thermal profiles. Leaned toward the colder NAM solution for this forecast 
given how cold the antecedent airmass is. Looks like we will have 
the entire "gambit" of precipitation types with this event. Look for 
accumulation snow...then mixed precipitation leading to ice accums on the 
cold side of the systm Monday...heavy rain with isolated tstrms along the 
southeastern coastal areas on the warm side of the systm Monday night / Tuesday morning. 


High prs shifts to the New England coast this evening with the moisture from 
the next systm rapidly apprchg from the west. Overrunning precipitation 
quickly spreads across the Piedmont around 03z (this somewhat quicker 
than previously thought) and toward the coast by 12z. This is the 
easy part of the forecast as thicknesses / thermal profiles remain cold 
enough for the precipitation to start off as snow. Chance probability of precipitation ramp up to likely / 
categorical across the Piedmont by 12z. Low temperatures occur a bit earlier 
than usual then steady out during the pre dawn hours. Lows in the teens 
across the Eastern Shore...upper teens to l20s elsewhere. Quantitative precipitation forecast forecast gnrlly 
at or below .15 so expect acculms of an inch or less ivof i95 corridor expect 1- 
2 in western most counties through 12z. Expect a slippery commute given the snow 
will fall with surface temperatures in the l20s. 


A messy day ahead Monday as the models continue to show warm air pushing 
nrthwrd above the surface layer beginning from 12-18z/15...initially across NE 
NC-far southern Virginia...then points nrth by lt Monday afternoon/Monday evening. Given how 
cold the air is initially...and snow ratios upwards of 15:1 ... a 
general 2-4" accumls western most counties...1-2" i95 corridor with an inch 
or less toward the coastal plain...except across coastal NE NC. Transition 
of snow to (a short period of?) Ice pellets...then freezing rain/rain is difficult to time (for 
any particular location)...especially along-west of I 95 where the shallow cold 
air will remain stubborn and tough to dislodge quickly. BUFKIT showing 
GFS is quicker with the transition than the colder NAM. Kept temperatures 
at or below 32f for most of the Piedmont in central Virginia through 00-03z/16. 
Otw...temperatures slowly rise reaching the m30s i95 corridor to the 40s 
along the coast. Total ice accumls of up to a tenth or two possible west of 
i95...greatest along-west of a fvx-lku line. 


Rain to be the main precipitation type Monday evening through Tuesday morning. There could be 
a few lingering pockets of freezing rain across portions of Louisa/Fluvanna 
counties into the overnight hours Monday night. Models showing a band of deep 
lift / Omega late Monday night into Tuesday morning ahead of the triple point 
low. This feature prognosticated to cross the forecast area SW-NE Tuesday morning with the 
trailing cdfrnt moving offshore by 00z Wednesday. Added r+ to the grids aftr 
06z Monday through 15z Tuesday along the coast. Although instability is limited...can 
not rule out isolated thunder Tuesday morning as the systm moves into the warm 
sector. Lows Monday night will likely occur at 00z Tuesday with steady or slowly 
rising readings. Temperatures by 12z Tuesday range from the m30s northwest to l50s southeastern 
coastal areas. 


MDT to heavy Tuesday morning will quickly end as dry air overspreads the region 
aftr frontal passage. Som sunshine even possible across western counties in the afternoon. 
Highs tricky especially if more sunshine does occur. Highs in the 
50s to near 60 southeastern areas. 


Decision time on what to do with the watch. Decided to upgrade northwestern 
most counties to a warning (3-4 in of snow....10 to .20 ice) ending at 
09z Monday. Went with a 2 tiered weather weather advisory...first one for the i95 
/ i85 corridors for 2-3 in snow...less than .10 ice) ending at 00z and 
second one 1-2 counties further east across the coastal plain for 1-2 inch 
accumulate and little ice) ending at 21z Monday. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
shortwave trough will clip the area late Tuesday night into Wednesday 
morning with a chance of rain or snow across the northern tier 
counties. Dry and mild Wednesday under west-northwest flow with highs in the 
upper 40s to middle 50s. A cold front tracks across the area Wednesday 
night...followed by Canadian high pressure Thursday. This should 
push temperatures below normal...but within -1 St dev. A moderating 
trend commences late week as high pressure moves offshore and low 
pressure tracks through the Great Lakes. Another cold front may move 
across the area late Friday into next Saturday for a chance of 
rain. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Sunday through Thursday/... 
breezy north winds with gusts of 15-25kt will prevail through this 
morning from western ches Bay to the Atlantic coast while inland winds 
average 6kt or less. Winds along the coast will diminish during 
the afternoon as Arctic high pressure moves directly overhead...causing 
the tighter temperature/pressure gradient to be pushed well offshore. 


Focus then turns to the next complex weather system moving into 
the middle Atlantic region late Sunday night from the SW-W. Plenty 
of cold air in place for precipitation to begin as all snow late Sunday 
night into early Monday morning for all taf sites. However...a 
deepening low moving in from the SW is expected to pull warmer air 
into the region. This will likely result in a wintry mix of 
snow/sleet/freezing rain across central Virginia (primarily impacting kric) 
and a changeover to all rain across far southeast Virginia/NE NC. Surface low 
tracks across WV and warming temperatures will allow all precipitation to 
transition to moderate to heavy rainfall Monday night. Ceiling/visible 
restrictions begin as MVFR Sunday night but will quickly drop to 
IFR by Monday morning and are anticipated to maintain IFR (and 
possibly lifr) ceilings/visible through at least Tuesday afternoon before 
conditions start to improve. A break in precipitation and flight 
restrictions is anticipated Tuesday night but could be 
short-lived. Another weather disturbance skirts across central Virginia 
to the Maryland lower Eastern Shore late Tuesday night into Wednesday 
morning...likely bringing light snow showers across the area and 
possibly impacting kric and ksby. 


&& 


Marine... 
north-northwest winds still gusting up to 25-30kt on ches Bay and the coastal 
waters and up to 20kt lower James River/Currituck Sound early this 
morning. A freezing spray advisory remains in effect through 1000 am 
for these areas as a result. Winds will continue to diminish through 
middle to late morning as Arctic high pressure moves directly overhead... 
causing the tighter temperature/pressure gradient to be pushed well 
offshore. Small Craft Advisory flags should end for Bay/lower James/sound by 1000 am. 
Wind gusts drop below 25kt by 1000 am however seas will linger 
around 5ft until the afternoon...dropping below 5ft northern coastal waters 
by early afternoon and then southern coastal waters by late afternoon/early 
evening. 


Winds remain fairly light from the east-southeast tonight into early Monday as the 
Arctic high pressure slides well offshore. A complex low pressure 
system approaches from the SW-west late tonight and is expected to track 
NE across West Virginia late Monday night/Tuesday morning. A warm front will 
lift northward across the waters Monday aftn/evening. Winds become more southerly 
behind the warm front and increase to 20-25kt all waters late Monday 
evening (except 15-20kt eastern Virginia rivers) with gusts up to 30kt over 
the coastal waters. During this same timeframe...seas also expected 
to build to 5-9ft and waves to 3-4ft (up to 5ft in the mouth of ches 
bay). Small Craft Advisory winds anticipated Monday night through Tuesday morning. A much 
weaker weather disturbance crosses the northern waters late Tuesday night 
into Wednesday morning but should have minimal impacts other than winds 
shifting around to the west at or below 15kt. Seas possibly remain elevated 
through Thursday until a modified Arctic high pressure can build over the 
area Thursday night/Fri.
