Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
521 am EDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
cool Canadian high pressure slides over the region today and 
becomes located off the southeast coast by this evening. The next 
cold front crosses the middle Atlantic region on Friday...followed 
by a series of weak and generally dry fronts through the weekend. 
A period of unsettled weather is expected early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
a cool Canadian surface high pressure is centered over the Great Lakes 
region and extends across the Ohio Valley early this morning. The 
surface high will slide southeast over the middle Atlantic region today and 
become located off the southeast U.S. Coast by this evening. The 
pressure gradient will remain somewhat tightened along the Atlantic 
coast today as the high moves in and a strong surface low well east of 
the northern New England coast slowly pushes eastward. With high pressure 
overhead...sunshine will be plentiful and temperatures will warm nicely 
today. Cirrus clouds will into the region from the northwest as the afternoon 
progresses but this should have a minimal impact on high 
temperatures today. Expect highs in the upper 60s inland Virginia/NE NC 
and in the low-middle 60s closer to the immediate ches Bay/Atlantic 
coasts. In addition...dry weather and fine fuels will prevail 
today. The dry conditions coupled with breezy northwest winds will allow 
min relative humidity values to fall into the upper teens-low 20s most areas by 
this afternoon. Increased fire potential is a concern once again for 
today...but will be limited to the Maryland/Virginia Eastern Shore. Please refer 
to the fire weather section below for more information. 


Winds will turn southeast-S and be light as high pressure continues to 
move southeastward overnight. Meanwhile...a cold front and associated upper 
level shortwave will push across the middle-Mississippi Valley and 
into the Ohio Valley overnight. High clouds will increase and 
thicken overnight as the surface front approaches the middle Atlantic 
region. The combination of cloud cover and increasing 
moisture/dewpoints will prevent temperatures from dropping quickly 
overnight. Lows should be near normal with readings in the 
middle- upper 40s areawide (except low 40s possible for interior 
Maryland eastern shore). 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Saturday night/... 
timing of the frontal passage has slowed and the upper level 
shortwave strength is waning as both features cross the middle 
Atlantic region Friday into Friday evening. Short range models are 
in fair agreement with slowing the onset of precipitation and limiting it 
to areas west of Interstate 95 from middle-morning to early afternoon. The 
presence of a Theta-E gradient (ahead of the Theta-E ridge axis) 
means that a slight chance of thunder is possible during this 
timeframe...despite an initial lack of preferred/favorable surface 
instability in the morning. Convective potential improves during 
the afternoon/early evening as daytime heating and incoming shortwave 
energy destabilizes the atmosphere and deep lift/Omega 
accompanies the frontal passage. Model soundings show a primarily 
unidirectional wind profile with slight veering with height in the 
lowest levels (roughly below 850-900 mb) which implies that 
thunderstorm line segments may be possible. However...wind shear 
from 0-6 km is averaging about 30 knots which suggests that the 
potential for organized convection is low. In addition ... 
short-lived low level SW flow will advect modest precipitable waters  into the 
region (0.75 to 1.40 inches). Therefore if any thunderstorms 
develop...they should primarily be unorganized with periods of 
moderate to heavy rainfall with sub-severe wind gusts of 30-40 miles per hour 
under the strongest storm cores. Keeping one caveat in mind...if 
the upper level shortwave digs farther south over the next 24 
hours (as of Thursday morning)...then the amplification of upstream 
ridging will likely stall the frontal passage until Friday evening 
thus causing an additional delay in the onset of precipitation to the area 
and decreasing thunderstorm potential due to unfavorable timing. 
Will need to monitor 12z model trends this morning as well as 
shortwave placement in water vapor imagery to determine best 
timing/impacts. High temperatures in the middle-upper 70s are anticipated 
most areas while the Maryland/Virginia Eastern Shore should be in the low-middle 
70s. 


The cold front is expected to move offshore late Friday night as 
a secondary dry cold front (associated with an upper low over the 
great lakes) approaches from the northwest. Gradually clearing skies from 
west to east Friday night should result in lows in the upper 40s to 
lower 50s west of Interstate 95 and middle-upper 50s east of 
Interstate 95 (lower 50s Maryland/Virginia eastern shore). The dry front will 
sag down across the area on Sat which will result in breezy 
westerly/downslope flow and increasing low level thicknesses. This 
should allow daytime temperatures to warm into the upper 70s (possibly 
80 degrees) for NE NC and interior Virginia west of ches Bay and into 
the middle 60s to lower 70s for the Maryland/Virginia Eastern Shore. A narrow 
band of moisture and measurable precipitation is expected to stay north 
of the local forecast area Sat/Sat night. Lows Sat night will be 
at to slightly above normal with temperatures of 45-50 degrees northwest of 
Richmond and the Maryland/Virginia Eastern Shore...and in the lower 50s 
elsewhere. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
models continue to point to a highly amplified/blocky pattern over 
the Continental U.S. Next week...resulting in an increasingly wet period. 


Models continue to struggle with this blocky flow...mainly in 
location of frontal boundary prognosticated to be draped across the region 
along with timing of several batches of moisture prognosticated to rotate NE 
from the deep south. What todays models show different from 
ystrdys is a slower start to the precipitation Monday...somewhat higher 
confidence for an extended prd of wetness from Monday night through Wednesday 
along with a frontal boundary that will likely play havoc with 
temperatures. 


Kept sun dry/seasonable as 500 mb ridge builds across the area. Warm 
front apprchs the region from the SW Sun night...but guidance suggests 
any moisture stays west of forecast area through 12z Monday. Lows Sat/sun nights in 
the m40s-l50s. Highs sun 70-75 west of the Bay...M-u60s along the 
coast. 


Forecast rather problematic next week as the models differ on 
where this frontal boundary sets up. This will likely determine temperatures 
and precipitation types (convective vs stratiform rain). Upper level low 
prognosticated to slowly eject east from the nations middle section Monday 
night only to the Ohio vlly by Wednesday. A moist east-southeast flow will likely 
add to the moisture content resulting in periodic chances for precipitation 
through the prd. Frontal boundary may also try to make a run farther north 
by Wednesday as surface low begins to cross the mts. Trailing cold front 
will eventually push all this out to sea...but that might not be 
until Thursday. Upshot will carry high chance probability of precipitation (shwrs) Monday 
through Wednesday. Temperatures coolest (l-m60s) along the coast due to an 
onshore flow. Highs u60s-l70s west of the Bay. Lows in the 50s. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Thursday through Monday/... 
hi pressure continuing to build over the region through today...resulting in 
dcrsg north-northwest winds. A little bit gusty to between 15 to 20 knots into this 
morning...especially near the CST. Winds diminish over inland locations to 
around 5 knots by lt today. VFR today through tonight. 


An area of low pressure and an associated cold front will bring 
scattered showers and a few thunderstorms Friday. Brief periods of 
IFR will be possible at the taf sites. High pressure builds into the 
region during the weekend with VFR and dry weather taking over 
through Monday. The next weather system brings a good chance for 
precipitation by Tuesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
lingering scas on the Bay into middle/lt morning hours...on the ocn until 
middle/lt afternoon. Surface hi pressure is slo to build over the waters this 
aftn/eve...resulting in gusty north-northwest winds this morning waning this afternoon. 
Vrb winds tonight less than 10 knots...become south-southeast on Friday ahead of 
approaching low pressure from the west. Speeds to increases Friday into Friday night... 
though will keep below Small Craft Advisory...then become west-northwest Friday night and continue 
through Sat. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
dry conditions (min relative humidity values 15-25%) will occur again today. 
However...winds will be lighter than Wednesday. This will preclude 
the need for any red flag warnings over the local area. Northwest winds 
do increase to around 15 miles per hour with gusts of 20-25 miles per hour during the 
late morning/early afternoon hours on the lower Maryland/Virginia Eastern Shore. 
Given how low relative humidity values will be Thursday afternoon coupled with low 
fuel moisture conditions...have continued the increased Fire 
Danger Statement for our Maryland counties (after coordination with Maryland 
fire officials) and added Virginia Eastern Shore counties to the 
increased Fire Danger Statement.
