NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
936 am EDT Thursday Oct 2 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds over the middle Atlantic region through Friday. 
A strong cold front crosses the area Saturday morning...ushering 
in much cooler and drier weather for the end of the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest weather analysis continues to feature high pressure ridging south 
into the middle-Atlantic and southeast from New England. To the west, 
aloft, GOES WV Sat imagery features closed low slowly drifting east 
across southeast New England, with shortwave ridging pushing across the 
mountains this morning. A weak impulse embedded in northwest flow on the 
western periphery of the departing trough has allowed for some scattered 
rain showers to persist into the overnight. Kakq radar showing some 
isolated-widely scattered rain showers diving east-southeast across the ric metropolitan area at 08z. 
Have allowed for a brief window of some isolated rain showers/sprinkles 
through the next few hours. Have also allowed for some additional 
areas of fog, mainly over south central/interior southeast Virginia and just 
east of the I-95 corridor through mid-morning. Similar to the past 
few mornings, stratus will slowly diminish through the morning, 
with sky eventually becoming partly sunny by afternoon. For highs, 
look for highs in the middle 70s Eastern Shore and along the 
immediate coastal locations...W/ u70s to around 80 farther inland. 


High pressure at the surface and aloft will pivot offshore tonight and 
early Friday, allowing light low level flow to shift around to the E-se. 
NAM family models still keying in on some additional areas of light 
overrunning in the late night hours tonight/early Friday. While this 
could portend to another round of isolated shras/sprinkles...lift is 
shallow enough that accumulating precipitation is not anticipated. Thus, have 
held out of forecast for now and will cap pop at 14% across I-95 
and west. Went with milder envelope of MOS guidance with onshore 
flow. Lows generally low 60s, with some u50s over the far north- 
northeastern zones. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Saturday night/... 
forecast models continue to slow the approach of the middle-upper 
trough diving southeast across the upper Midwest and upper Great 
Lakes on Friday, with its associated strong surface cold frontal 
passage pushing across the Ohio/Tennessee valleys Friday and Friday night. Expect a 
rather mild and pleasant day ahead of the front with highs in the 
low 80s inland...middle to upper 70s Eastern Shore and coastal zones. 
Front will sweep across the area Friday night...reaching the coastal 
zones by sunrise Sat morning. Overnight lows Friday night in the 60s. 


As far as timing pops, arw/nmm seem in good agreement with latest 
00z European model (ecmwf) in bringing a decaying line of rain showers towards the region 
late Friday afternoon into Friday night. Precipitable water values quickly ramp up into 
1.50-1.75 range, so high chance to likely probability of precipitation Friday night look good. 
However, dynamics/instability parameters look anemic due to late 
night frontal passage timing and the orientation of the trough well to our 
N-NW. Thus, have decided to hold thunder wording out of this 
package. Did allow for some scattered rain showers late Friday afternoon across 
our western tier of counties, with probability of precipitation ramping up Friday night over 
the I-95 corridor and overnight Friday over the Eastern Shore. Total 
quantitative precipitation forecast is generally around a quarter inch across the area, slightly 
more across the north. 


Probability of precipitation ramp down from west to east quickly Saturday morning, with a 
clearing sky from middle morning through afternoon. Used thickness 
tools for maximum T on Saturday, but do expect west (downsloping) winds 
along west/plenty of afternoon sunshine to help boost temperatures a degree or two 
warmer. Highs u60s/around 70 in the Piedmont to lower 70s across the 
coastal plain. 


Coolest night of the Young fall season is expected Saturday night. 
Best cold air advection will remain north and west of the local 
area, but 850 mb temperatures do drop to between 0-2 degree c Sunday morning. 
Expect a pleasant, chilly night Sat night with lows in the lower to 
middle 40s...to near 50 along the coast under a mostly clear sky. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
long term period will feature mainly dry and seasonable conditions. 
Middle-level trough axis and associated surface cold front pushes farther 
offshore sun. Hi pressure then builds into the southeast U.S. Sun afternoon with SW 
flow developing across the middle Atlantic. Expect a sunny sky with 
hi temperatures in the middle to upper 60s. Dry conditions continue into Monday 
with a broad upper-level trough over the east half of the Continental U.S. And surface hi 
pressure sliding offshore. Hi temperatures near normal...in the low to middle 
70s. 


For Tue/Wed...a middle-level shortwave trough and weak surface frontal boundary 
will cross the middle Atlantic leading to a slight chance for a rain showers. 
Difficult to time this far out but either way not expecting a large 
amount of precipitation with this system. Hi temperatures both days still in the low 
to middle 70s with lows ranging through the 50s. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Thursday through Monday/... 
areas of MVFR fog/mist have developed early this morning with 
visibilities primarily ranging from 2-5sm. There are some isolated 
pockets of IFR fog/ceilings observed at times...therefore occasionally 
rapid but brief reductions in flight conditions should also be 
anticipated. As with the past few mornings...fog should 
lift/dissipate between 02/1300-1400z. The combination of light onshore 
flow at the surface and light northwest winds aloft will allow a middle level 
cloud deck to persist through today...generally 4-9 kft above ground level. Fog 
potential slowly wanes for tonight as upper ridging moves directly 
overhead. Patchy fog may develop along/west of Interstate 
95...otherwise the rest of the area should remain fog-free due to 
weak cold air advection closer to the coast. A strong cold front 
approaches the middle Atlantic region on Friday and southeast winds will 
become breezy by Friday afternoon with gusts around 15 knots. The surface 
pressure gradient tightens significantly with the frontal passage Friday night 
into Sat. Expect S-SW winds to strengthen ahead of and along the 
front...turning to the west-northwest behind the frontal passage with wind speeds 
remaining elevated through Saturday due to noticeably cooler temperatures 
and strong cold air advection. Moderate to heavy rainfall will also 
be possible at times during the frontal passage. High pressure and dry 
conditions return to the region late Saturday afternoon into early next 
week with pleasant flying conditions anticipated. 


&& 


Marine... 
continued light north-NE winds at or below 10 knots will persist across most 
locations this morning. North-NE winds of 15-20kt will occur off the northern 
coastal waters (from 10-20nm) due to the presence of a 
quasi-stationary low pressure system that is well east of New 
England. This feature will provide just enough of a pressure 
gradient to keep winds elevated here. Observed seas at buoy 44009 
keep fluctuating between 4.3-4.6ft near 20nm and expect this to 
continue through today...however it is not widespread enough to 
warrant Small Craft Advisory flags at this time. Otherwise...seas will average 3-4ft all 
waters today/waves 1-2ft. 


A strong cold front approaches the middle Atlantic region on Friday and 
starts to push the offshore New England low eastward. This will cause the 
pressure gradient to relax over all waters on Friday with NE-east winds 
at or below 10kt for most of the day. The cold front is expected to cross 
the waters late Friday night into Sat. Winds veer to the southeast-S on Friday 
evening into early Sat ahead of/along the front with speeds 
increasing to 15-20kt and gusts around 25 knots. Winds then swing 
around to the west-northwest behind the front by early Sat afternoon. A period of 
Small Craft Advisory conditions may be possible late Friday through Sat night due to 
winds and seas/waves. The timing of the frontal passage may slow 
down as the associated upper trough digs into the Tennessee Valley Friday/Friday 
night...therefore have decided to hold off on issuing Small Craft Advisory flags at this time 
since the start time is highly dependent on the incoming/increasing 
pressure gradient (i.E. Small Craft Advisory conditions could begin early Friday afternoon or 
late Friday evening). Winds and seas diminish Sunday as high pressure 
builds into the area and strong cold air advection subsides.
