Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 9:16 PM EST on February 26, 2015


... Hazardous travel conditions tonight due to black ice and freezing
fog...

As temperatures tonight fall into the 20s... melted snow and
slush from today's snowfall will refreeze. This will make for
potentially hazardous travel into the Friday morning rush
hour... especially on secondary and neighborhood roads... and
bridges and overpasses. Motorists should be alert for areas of black
ice on area roadways. In addition... patchy fog is expected to
continue developing across portions of central and southern Virginia
due to some clearing and light winds. The fog may deposit a light
coating of ice on roads... enhancing the driving danger overnight. If
you encounter an icy patch... release the accelerator... and pump your
brakes lightly to avoid skidding. Drive defensively and allow for
extra time to reach your destination. Avoid any sudden stops or
accelerations.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1017 PM EST Thursday Feb 26 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure off the northern middle Atlantic coast late this 
afternoon...will continue northeast out to sea tonight. High 
pressure will slowly build in from the northwest Friday through 
Saturday...then slides off the coast on Sunday. A cold front 
pushes across the region late Sunday night into Monday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Friday morning/... 
10 PM update...numerous locations in central and southern Virginia 
are experiencing fog with visibility below one-quarter mile. 
With temperatures continuing to fall below 32 degrees...the risk 
for rime depositing on roadways will increase. Combined with re- 
freezing of melting snow/slush...hazardous driving conditions are 
likely through the remainder of the night. 


9 PM update...not a lot of change to going forecast. Have adjusted 
sky grids to be more optimistic...based upon clearing seen over 
the last few hours...and 18z model guidance. Was tempted earlier 
to lower mins a couple degrees due to less clouds. 
However...temperatures this evening have fallen slowly...per going 
forecast. Have thus left min temperatures basically unchanged. Am 
also planning to add patchy fog to the forecast...as latest 
observations suggest fog developing across portions of southern 
and central Virginia. Special Weather Statement for icy roads has been updated through the 
remainder of the night. 


Afternoon discussion...low pressure system that produced 3 to 8 
inches of snow over most of the akq County Warning Area was well off the northern middle 
Atlantic CST late this afternoon. Just light snow showers or flurries 
possible early this eveng until upper level energy exits offshr. 
Otherwise...partly to mostl cloudy tonight with a few flurries 
possible after midngt across the northern counties. Min temperatures will range 
from the upper teens to middle 20s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Friday morning through Sunday/... 
hi pressure will slowly build in from the northwest Friday through Sat...then moves off 
the CST on sun. Partly sunny or mostly cloudy and cold on Friday with 
highs ranging through the 30s. A few flurries possible across extreme north-northeast 
counties in the morng. Partly cloudy and very cold Friday night with 
lows mainly in the middle teens to lower 20s. Partly sunny and cold on 
Sat with maximum temperatures in the upper 20s to middle 30s. 


Dry Sat night under a partly to mostly cloudy sky. Lows ranging from 
the middle teens to lower 20s. Hi pressure will slide off the CST on sun 
and a cold front will approach from the west. Winds will become southeast or S 
Sun afternoon and eveng in advance of this system helping boost temperatures 
into the upper 30s to lower 40s. Kept sun dry for now with increasing 
cloudiness. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
the period begins Sunday night with low pressure tracking north of the 
region...and a trailing cold front approaching from the northwest. At this 
time 40-50% probability of precipitation are forecast NE...with 30-40% elsewhere. Expecting 
mainly -ra as low-level SW flow is expected to prevail by this time. 
The cold front drops through the region Monday...with high pressure 
building north of the area through Monday night. Lows Sunday night 
should be in the middle 30s...followed by highs Monday ranging from the 
middle/upper 40s NE...to the low/middle 50s SW. Lows Monday night should 
range from the upper 20s north...to low/middle 30s S. High pressure shifts 
offshore Tuesday as low pressure tracks into the Ohio Valley. The 
trailing cold front is prognosticated to drop into the region and linger 
through midweek. At this time unsettled conditions are expected to 
prevail. Temperatures will be challenging and be dictated by the 
position of the front. Temperatures S of the boundary are likely to 
be mild and more Spring like...while cool (but more seasonal/within 
-1 St dev) conditions are expected north of the boundary. 
Regardless...precipitation type appears to be all -ra at this time. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Friday through Tuesday/... 
surface low continues to move farther out to sea with high 
pressure beginning to slowly move in to the area. Expect mostly 
VFR conditions overnight. Weak cad setup may provide an 
opportunity for some MVFR ceilings Friday afternoon. 


High pressure dominates through the weekend with north to NE winds 
prevailing. 


Will continue to append 'amd not sked' at kecg due to comms issue 
at kecg ASOS. 


&& 


Marine... 
low pressure lifting east-northeast well off the middle Atlantic coast this 
afternoon. The wind is gradually diminishing this afternoon as the 
low departs. Wind speeds over the Northern Bay and rivers are at or below 15kt so 
the scas have been allowed to expire. A 15-20kt north-northeast wind should 
persist over the Lower Bay through early evening...before 
diminishing to 10-15kt. However...4-6ft waves are likely to persist 
in the mouth of the Bay...so the Small Craft Advisory will continue overnight. Seas 
have risen to 10-12ft...with 8-10ft nearshore waves off Virginia Beach and 
the Currituck Outer Banks. At this time the high surf advisory has 
been extended through 06z. Scas for the ocean will likely persist 
through Friday north/Friday night S as seas will be slow to subside. 
Otherwise...high pressure gradually builds north of the region tonight 
night through Friday night. Gradual low-level cold air advection will persist and 
the wind will remain northerly...although current forecast speeds 
average at or below 15kt. However...there may be enough of a surge Friday 
night to produce low-end Small Craft Advisory conditions in the Bay. High pressure 
builds into the region Saturday and Saturday night and shifts 
offshore Sunday...with a cold front moving through the region 
Monday. High pressure returns Monday night...with low pressure 
approaching from the west Tuesday.
