NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1050 am EDT Thursday may 28 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure remains anchored well off the middle Atlantic coast 
this afternoon...with a trough of low pressure nearly stationary 
east of the mountains. High pressure will build over the northeast 
states Friday...then slide off the coast Saturday. A slow moving 
cold front will enter the local area from the northwest on Sunday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
forecast area generally split with respect to conds at this time. Fair amount of sunshine across western 
1/2...while band of broken-overcast cloudiness extends from the lower Maryland Eastern Shore 
south-southwest through interior southeast Virginia/NE NC. Isolated rain showers have occurred in 
that corridor so far this morning. The rest of the day will have 
p-mostly sunny conds west...and vrb clouds-pcldy east. Prime area for 
convection expected to be across interior southeast Virginia and NE NC where 
lingering convective boundaries from last evening storms combine west/ 
differential heating and seabreezes. Carrying 30-50% probability of precipitation in those 
areas. Elsewhere...amt/coverage of convection uncertain...and will have 
mainly 15-30% probability of precipitation. Weak shear will make organized strong storms 
unlikely...main concern will be lclly heavy rain in slo moving storms 
due to weak flow and precipitable waters  over 1.50". Hi temperatures from 85-90f...except 
70s to l80s at the CST (like Wednesday afternoon...Ocean City Maryland beaches may 
not have a hi temperature above 70f). 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Saturday/... 
low chance probability of precipitation linger this evening...mainly well inland...otherwise 
partly cloudy with lows mainly from 65-70 f. 


Weak surface hi pressure slides east across new eng Friday. Models show a slight drop 
in dewpoints across far north-northeast counties for the day...while remaining up elsewhere. 
Hi pressure just offshore begins to slightly build westward during the 
day...so focus of higher probability of precipitation (30-40%) northwest 1/2 of forecast area with only 10-20% 
probability of precipitation elsewhere. By Sat...cold front from the northwest approaches...though remains far 
enough away for significant impact on the weather here. Will keep 
conds warm west/ vrb clouds/pcldy and mainly just about a 20% pop inland...10% 
at the CST. Hi temperatures Friday a tad cooler mainly in the middle to upper 
80s inland...70s at the CST. Low temperatures m60s- around 70f. Sat a little 
warmer with highs upper 80s/near 90 f inland to the 70s to lower 80s 
at the coast. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
the medium range period remains characterized by middle/upper level 
ridging over the eastern Continental U.S. With a trough lingering over the 
intermoutain west. Surface high pressure builds across eastern Canada 
Saturday night and Sunday pushing a cold front into the northern middle 
Atlantic. 12z GFS/European model (ecmwf) diverge Sunday night/Monday with the GFS 
bringing the surface cold front through the local area Sunday 
night and the European model (ecmwf) waiting until Monday. High pressure settles in 
vicinity of the New England coast Tuesday and Wednesday...and 
moves offshore Thursday. The best focus for convection appears to 
be Sunday afternoon/evening ahead of the cold front with 40-50% 
probability of precipitation forecast across the northern half of the area. The wind profile 
will remain weakly sheared so any thunderstorms should be rather 
unorganized. Probability of precipitation Monday afternoon and evening are forecast to be 
30-40% Monday afternoon/evening...and then trend downward to 
20-30% by Tuesday and sub-15% through midweek as surface high 
pressure prevails. High temperatures Sunday are forecast to range 
from the middle to upper 80s...with upper 70s to low 80s behind the 
front Tuesday through Thursday. Lows should average through the 
60s. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Thursday through Monday/... 
high pressure remains centered well offshore this morning with a 
surface trough just east of the mountains. The result is S-SW flow 
with speeds generally 5-10 knots. Patchy fog/stratus over areas that 
received rainfall last night...but VFR conditions prevail at the 
taf sites. Any remaining fog/stratus quickly Burns off by 12-13z. 


For today...surface winds become southeasterly (aob 10 kt) this afternoon as 
high pressure pushes farther offshore and a cold front washes out 
northwest of the region. Scattered afternoon and early evening showers 
and thunderstorms are expected again today. Best coverage expected 
to be across the southeast counties and west counties. Scattered-broken cumulus develop 
this afternoon with decks generally between 3-5k feet above ground level. Guidance 
indicates more fog/stratus overnight...but will be dependent on 
where precipitation occurs today. 


Upper/surface high pressure remains over the region into the weekend. 
Dry conditions are expected to prevail...but there is a chance for 
diurnally driven showers/thunderstorms across the Piedmont Friday- 
Sat. Better chances for measurable precipitation expected sun-Monday as a 
cold front reaches...and then stalls over the region. 


&& 


Marine... 
high pressure remains centered well off the middle-Atlantic coast early 
this morning with a weak surface trough just west of the water. The 
result is a SW wind of 10-15 knots. Waves have subsided to generally 1 
to 2 feet with seas running 2 to 4 feet (highest in the northern coastal 
waters). High pressure pushes farther offshore today as a weak cold 
front drops into the region...washing out west of the waters this 
afternoon. Flow becomes southeasterly this afternoon...averaging 10-15 knots. 
Southeasterly flow at or below 10 knots persists Friday. Gradient strengthens Friday night-Sat 
as a cold front approaches from the west. Speeds remain sub-sca. 
Seas build to 3-4 feet Friday night-Sat thanks to persistent and 
increasing southeast flow. Cold front reaches...and then stalls over the 
region sun into early next week.
