NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
841 PM EDT Friday Sep 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
a backdoor cold front will move south across the area tonight. 
Strong high pressure across the northern states will slowly build 
south to off the middle Atlantic coast Saturday through Sunday. Low 
pressure develops off the southeastern coast late in the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Saturday morning/... 
current analysis indicating backdoor front moving through ches 
Bay...with 3 hour pressure rises of 1 to 2 mb across most of the County Warning Area. 
Earlier thunderstorms activity has now shifted to the west or SW of the County Warning Area. 
A few remaining showers across the Piedmont will linger through 
00-02z or so. Elsewhere...skies have cleared out in many areas east 
of I-95 although some areas already seeing low stratus develop. 
Appears there will be lull in precipitation for the rest of the evening 
into the early am hours. Could see some patchy fog development after 
sunset in areas that received significant rainfall along and east of 
I-95 where skies clear out...but do expect it to be widespread. 


Overnight/after 06z will maintain 20-30% probability of precipitation moving back into 
the region...along with skies gradually becoming mostly cloudy 
all areas once again as stratus becomes widespread. Also will see 
increasing NE winds by 06-09z...particularly near the coast as 
pressure rises continue with ~1025 mb surface high centered over New 
England building south. Low temperatures mainly in the upper 60s/around 
70f inland...to 70-75f at the coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Saturday morning through Monday/... 
weather looks to be unsettled over (most of) the forecast area this weekend as surface hi 
pressure slowly builds southeast through new eng...then off the NE Continental U.S. CST 
(by sun). NE winds will remain gusty (to 25-30 mph) near the CST on Sat 
before waning into sun. Compounding the uncertainty with respect to clouds and 
precipitation chances will be development of weak low pressure in vicinity of southeast Continental U.S. CST. 
Cooler...but remaining humid this weekend as drier air from the north-northeast has 
difficulty pushing too far S into the forecast area. Best shot at that will 
be over NE counties during the weekend...W/ weak middle level disturbances 
circulate inland in vicinity of southern/southeast Virginia and NE NC resulting in vrb clouds- 
mostly cloudy conds and isolated-scattered rain showers (20-40%) both days. 


By Monday...gradual erosion of the onshore flow expected...leading to a 
better probability for partly cloudy/warmer conds. Will hang onto 20-30% 
in southeast Virginia/NE NC on Monday. 


Hi temperatures Sat from the M-u70s at the CST to l80s inland...then from 
the u70s-l80s sun...and l-m80s Monday. Most low temperatures from the m60s to 
around 70f. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
a rather diffuse weather pattern to start the work week with zonal flow 
across the northern Continental U.S. And weak troughing over the southeast states 
into the Tennessee Valley thus keeping the Middle Atlantic States on the 
fringe of periodic convective activity...especially near coastal 
areas of southeast Virginia/NE NC. Fairly light onshore winds on Tuesday finally 
give way to more S-SW winds Tuesday night through the end of the week. 
This should result in a brief warm-up during the middle-week 
timeframe. Highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s Tuesday-Thursday and lows in 
the middle 60s to lower 70s Monday night-Thursday night. Longwave troughing 
begins to take shape Thursday/Friday across the northern plains/Great Lakes 
areas and should push a more well-defined cold front through the 
Middle Atlantic States very late in the period. 


&& 


Aviation /01z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
convection has mostly dissipated or moved out of the County Warning Area. All taf 
sites are VFR with NE-east winds around 10kt. Backdoor cold front 
will drop south through the area tonight resulting in cooler but 
still moist NE flow. Periods of drizzle and IFR/MVFR status will 
be possible early morning Saturday through early afternoon. In 
addition...gusty winds are expected along the coast on Saturday. 


Sub-VFR conditions will be possible through the weekend. 


&& 


Marine... 
NE winds are 10-15 knots all waters this afternoon as a backdoor cold 
front drops south towards the region and high pressure overspreads 
the NE states. Winds will slowly increase the rest of today as the 
front nears the waters. NE winds continue to increase from north 
to south this evening/overnight...averaging 15-20kt as the front 
crosses the waters. Small Craft Advisory flags for all waters will go into effect 
this evening and persist through most of Saturday before 
conditions subside. NE winds during Small Craft Advisory flags will average 15-25kt 
with up to 30kt gusts over coastal waters north of the Virginia/NC 
border. Waves on ches Bay will build from 2-3ft to 3-4ft this 
evening and seas will reach 4-6 feet (highest north) by Sat morning. 
Again...all sca's will run through the day Sat. Conditions improve 
Sat night for most of the Bay...Currituck Sound...and eastern Virginia 
rivers so that Small Craft Advisory flags can end throughout Sat evening. Still 
expecting waves to remain around 4ft at the mouth of the Bay into 
Sun morning...with seas lingering around 5 feet. Sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions 
appear likely to start next week. 


In addition...the onshore flow and high nearshore waves will enhance 
the rip current threat for the Holiday weekend. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
persistent NE winds of 15-25kt tonight into Saturday will result 
in tidal anomalies around 0.5 to 1.0 feet above normal and water 
levels just below hat to 0.5 feet above hat during the Saturday 
afternoon/evening high tide cycles. Several tidal gauges along the 
Atlantic coast and in ches Bay may either fall just short of minor 
flooding or just crest into minor flooding thresholds/levels. 
Coastal flood headlines may be needed for Saturday aftn/evening... 
however would like to monitor trends overnight as the NE winds 
increase with the passage of a cold front from north to south. 


&&
