NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
417 PM EDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will track across the northern middle Atlantic region 
early this evening...before pushing offshore late in the evening 
and overnight. High pressure will build over the area on Wednesday...and 
gradually shift off the coast on Thursday. The next cold front approaches 
from the northwest on Friday...and crosses the region Friday night 
into Saturday morning. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Wednesday morning/... 
afternoon surface analysis reveals low pressure centered over northern Virginia/western 
Maryland/south central PA. Breezy warm day across the local area with 
temperatures mainly from 70-75 f over interior Virginia/NE NC...with 60s 
prevailing on the Eastern Shore and the immediate coast of Virginia/NE NC. 
Skies are still sunny/mostly sunny for the most part...but latest 
satellite reveals broken/overcast cloud cover in the vicinity of the surface 
low and given a west-northwest flow aloft...expect skies to become partly to 
mostly cloudy for northern portions of the akq County Warning Area over the next 
few hours. Dew points remain very low (mainly in the 20s to lower 30s)...so 
precipitation chances will generally be confined to far northern/NE sections 
of the County Warning Area...primarily from 22z through 02z this evening (although 
will have some low chance probability of precipitation prior to this over the far north). 
Some of the high- res model data still depicts measurable quantitative precipitation forecast all 
the way into southern Virginia/NE NC. Given how dry it will be and that 
current observation upstream are showing rain having a tough time 
reaching the ground S/SW of the surface low track...will favor a drier 
forecast close to that depicted by the 12z nam12. Will confine low 
end likely probability of precipitation to the Maryland zones...with just chance/slight chance for 
remaining zones mainly along/N/NE of I-64. Generally going with a dry 
forecast S/SW of I-64. 


Wind speeds will average 15-20 miles per hour with gusts mainly up to 25-35 
miles per hour into the early evening hours. The combination of dry and breezy 
conditions will enhance fire danger through sunset so the fire weather statement 
has been issued. See fire weather section below for more detailed information. 


Conds dry out quickly after midnight with skies becoming mostly 
clear with low temperatures mainly in the upper 30s to middle 40s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Wednesday morning through Friday/... 
Canadian high pressure returns to the region on Wednesday. A cooler day 
under mostly sunny skies should be anticipated with highs in the 
Lower-Middle 60s for interior southern Virginia/NE NC and in the middle- upper 50s 
closer to the coast as winds turn onshore in the afternoon as the 
pressure gradient weakens. Surface high pressure axis shifts offshore 
late Wednesday night. Light winds and mostly clear skies should result 
in overnight lows in the middle 30s to around 40 most locations. 
With surface high pressure axis offshore on Thursday and a weather 
disturbance approaching the region from the SW...the area will be 
within a warming airmass especially as breezy south winds develop 
by the afternoon. Most inland locations should reach the lower 70s once 
again under mostly sunny skies...with highs in the middle- upper 60s 
at the immediate coast. Increasing clouds Thursday night as upper ridge 
axis shifts off the coast and a more moist SW flow aloft develops. 
In general...models are slower at bringing in deep moisture and 
the northern stream and southern stream are slower to phase. Have scaled 
back a bit on probability of precipitation for Friday...looks like a low end chance for mainly 
-ra Friday morning...primarily across northern zones as low level moisture 
overspreads the region. Very mild Thursday night in south-southwest flow and 
incraesing clouds...lows in the 50s to possible as warm as 60 f in 
a few spots. Warm/variably cloudy Friday with 20-30% chance for -shra 
and perhaps some late day thunderstorms as the surface front moves closer to 
the region. Highs mainly in the middle-upper 70s...possibly close to 
80f if enough sun can prevail. Main rain event looks to hold off 
until Friday night described in the long term below... 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
extended period will start off wet as a cold front crosses the 
region Friday night-Sat morning. Still some minor spatial and timing 
differences in the models with respect to associated southern stream energy and the 
cold front...but mostly now with how quick precipitation clears the coast 
Sat. Have increased probability of precipitation to likely Friday night...except the southeast. Theta- 
east advection and mild temperatures will result in marginal instability Friday 
evening. Soundings also indicate sharpening lapse rates as temperatures 
aloft cool. Will introduce slight chance thunder Friday evening. Cold 
front exits the coast Sat as the parent low and shortwave energy 
lift into the NE states/Canadian Maritimes. High pressure builds in 
from the west late Sat...remaining over the region through sun. The 
result will be dry conditions with a mostly sunny sky and slightly 
below normal temperatures. Highs Sat-sun generally in the low 60s inland 
and middle-upper 50s Eastern Shore and coastal areas. Lows Sat night in the 
upper 30s to low 40s. Broad upper trough will remain over southeastern 
Canada through the weekend into early next week. Associated backdoor 
front will remain north of the region. High pressure pushes offshore 
sun as return flow begins to moderate temperatures. Moisture from 
the Gulf begins to spread back northward into the Midwest early next week 
as weak perturbations in the westerly flow cross the region. Begin to 
reintroduce slight chance-low end chance probability of precipitation Tuesday-Tuesday night. Highs 
Monday in the middle-upper 60s inland and upper 50s to low 60s Eastern Shore 
and coastal areas. Lows Monday night in the upper 40s-low 50s. Highs 
Tuesday in the low 70s inland and middle-upper 60s Eastern Shore and coastal 
area. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
VFR conditions are expected to persist through the 18z taf 
period. A cold front moves through the area this evening. Ahead of 
this front...gusty SW winds (25-30 kt) are expected until around 
22-23z. 


A brief -shra cannot be ruled out at ksby this evening. Dry weather and 
VFR conditions then expected Wednesday and Thursday. Gusty SW winds may again 
be possible Thursday afternoon. 


&& 


Marine... 
low pressure has located over northern Virginia this afternoon with a trailing 
cold front located along the Ohio Valley. Strong gradient over the 
region between low pressure and high pressure off the Florida coast has 
resulted in strong SW winds over the water this afternoon. Speeds 
generally 15-25 knots. Few gusts of 30 knots observed on elevated sites 
closet to land...where 30 knots gusts also observed. Seas generally 2-3 
feet and waves 1-3 feet. Seas build to 3-5 feet northern waters this evening. 
Low pressure pushes offshore this evening with the cold front 
sweeping across the water around midnight. Brief lull in Small Craft Advisory speeds 
expected this evening in advance of the front...but a northwest cold air advection surge 
expected Post frontal. Speeds increase to 20-25 knots with a few gusts 
up to 30 knots after midnight. Seas build to 4-5 feet all coastal zones 
with waves 3-4 feet. Small Craft Advisory conditions will be relatively short lived as 
high pressure quickly builds over the waters Wednesday morning. Southeast swell 
may keep seas hovering around 5 feet 20 nm out through Wednesday morning...but 
subsiding Wednesday afternoon. High pressure slides offshore Wednesday night 
with flow returning to the S at or below 15 knots. Southerly winds increase Thursday as 
a cold front approaches from the west. Marginal Small Craft Advisory conditions are 
possible late Thursday-Thursday evening with southerly winds around 15-20 knots. 
Seas in the northern waters also prognosticated to reach 5 feet. Flow becomes SW 
Friday as the front hangs up along the central Appalachians. Front 
finally crosses the waters late Friday night. Brief period of Small Craft Advisory 
conditions expected Sat morning before high pressure builds in 
from the west. High pressure remains over the water through the 
weekend. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
southwest winds 15-20 miles per hour with frequent gusts between 25-35 miles per hour 
are expected this afternoon/early evening. These winds in 
combination with relative humidity values dropping to 18 to 25% 
range across Virginia and northeast NC will increase the fire danger. 
After coordinating with the NC and Virginia forestry officials and 
surrounding National Weather Service offices...will maintain an enhanced Fire Danger 
Statement through 6 PM. Critical red flag criteria may be met in a 
few locations across the Virginia Piedmont. However...10-hr dead fuel 
moisture values are still marginal or slightly exceeding the 
necessary threshold of 7%. On the Eastern Shore...a statement will 
not be necessary due to higher minimum relative humidity values.
