NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
651 am EDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


Synopsis... 
an upper level trough crosses the middle Atlantic today. High 
pressure builds into the region tonight and settles over the area 
Sunday. A weak cold front will move across the region later Sunday 
night into early Monday...with high pressure returning Monday 
afternoon. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
current GOES WV imagery shows the moist frontal band now well 
offshore. The upper system lags behind over central VA/NC. This is 
triggering some -shra over the Piedmont early this morning. Some 
snow could mix in as well...but should be of little impact with 
surface temperatures in the middle/upper 30s. 


This activity is expected to drop S of the region this 
morning...with partial clearing occurring across much of the area. 
Expect an increase in clouds once again this afternoon (especially 
n) as low-level instability combines with a secondary vorticity maximum to 
produce widespread cu/SC. Isolated -shra...and possibly a mix of 
-shra/shsn could pass across the lower Maryland Eastern Shore. High 
temperatures will be well below normal...nearly -2 St dev...and 
range from the low/middle 40s north...to middle/upper 40s S. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Monday/... 
any lingering -shra/shsn should dissipate this evening. The sky 
should clear from SW-NE...with most of the area becoming clear 
aside from a potential band of SC off the Bay. Cold high pressure 
builds in from the northwest. By early Sunday morning lows are expected 
to range from the low to middle 20s...with upper 20s along the coasts 
of southeast Virginia/NE NC. Current forecast lows are not records...but could 
be close depending on how much decoupling occurs. Record values 
are listed below in the climate section for reference. 


Surface high pressure will move across the region Sunday. This 
will result in dry...sunny...and cool conditions with a light northwest 
wind becoming SW by afternoon. Limited mixing will only allow high 
temperatures to reach the middle/upper 40s along the coast...to the 
low/middle 50s over interior Virginia/NE NC. 


An upper level trough and weak surface cold front cross the region 
late Sunday night into early Monday morning. Expect increasing 
clouds Sunday night. The low-level airmass will remain dry...so 
there is only a low probability for -shra (~20% over western 
portions). The boundary drops S of the region early Monday with 
deep layered west-southwest flow developing Monday. Mostly cloudy conditions 
early should give way to a partly to mostly sunny sky by 
afternoon. Improved mixing and more sun will result in highs 
ranging from the low/middle 60s east...to middle/upper 60s west. This will be 
after morning lows in the middle 30s to low 40s. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
split flow pattern prevails through the extended...as northern stream 
expected to remain active. The first northern stream shortwave exits the 
coast late Monday night...with another shortwave reaching the Ohio Valley 
late Tuesday. Associated low pressure expected to lift across New 
England Tuesday as high pressure builds across the southeast states. 
However...there is a great deal of uncertainty with the exact track 
of the northern stream low...with the 27/12z GFS lifting it through NE...the 
27/12z European model (ecmwf) through the northern middle-Atlantic region and the 27/12z CMC 
through NC. Based on the overall progressive pattern and upper level 
flow...prefer the northern track...keeping the forecast area dry. Associated weak 
cold front pushes across the region Tuesday night-weds. Limited 
moisture and little appreciable forcing will result in a dry frontal 
passage. Upper/surface high pressure builds over the eastern Continental U.S. Wednesday. 
Thereafter...models diverge with the handling of a southern stream system 
lifting from the Southern Plains into the Gulf states Wednesday-Wednesday night. 
GFS quicker to return moisture to the region as high pressure 
locates off the southeast coast Wednesday-Wednesday night...while its European model (ecmwf) and CMC 
counterparts are slower with the moisture return. Thereafter...the 
next northern stream system prognosticated to reach the Great Lakes/Ohio Valley 
late this week into early next weekend. Significant spatial and 
timing differences exist...with the GFS pushing the front through 18 
hours before the European model (ecmwf) (fri vs. Sat morning). Will maintain low end 
chance probability of precipitation beginning Thursday. Will carry low end chance probability of precipitation through 
Friday...but again confidence is not high at this time. 


Temperatures to begin the extended will be right around seasonable 
norms...in the 60s inland and upper 50s-low 60s Eastern Shore and 
coastal areas. Thursday highs will be dependent on potential cloud 
cover/precip. Have opted for a blend...resulting in highs in the 
upper 60s to near 70 inland and low-middle 60s Eastern Shore and coastal 
areas. Lows generally in the low-middle 40s. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
VFR through the 12z taf period. Low pressure pushes offshore today as hi 
pressure slowly builds in from the west. North/northwest winds will remain gusty between 
these two features today...with some 4-7k feet clouds sticking around 
as well. Expect decreasing clouds by this afternoon and diminishing 
winds after sunset. Dry weather continues into sun with hi pressure 
centered over the Carolinas. After a cold frontal passage Monday...hi pressure 
returns for Tuesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
latest surface analysis reveals developing low pressure off the Virginia/NC CST 
with hi pressure over the Midwest/Great Lakes states. Winds are starting 
to pick up this morng over the local waters in association with cold air advection 
behind the offshore low. For today into tonight...expect winds increasing 
to 20-25 knots with gusts up to 30 knots over the Bay/ocean...and 15-25 
knots over the rivers and sound. Small Craft Advisory conditions will likely persist 
over most waters through Sun morning/midday until hi press finally builds over 
the waters. Waves generally 3-4 feet and seas 4-6 feet. Northwest winds subside 
to 10-15 knots Sun afternoon with seas dropping below 5 feet. High 
pressure quickly passes over the region sun...and then moves 
offshore Sun night. Flow shifts to the south-southwest. The next (weak) cold 
front approaches from the west late sun. SW flow increases late Sun 
night...with models indicating Small Craft Advisory conditions. However...based on 
warm air advection and cold water...confidence for Small Craft Advisory conditions is not hi 
at this time...and will avoid any headlines for now also with the current 
headlines out. Very little cold air advection in wake of the front late Sun night- 
Monday morning so sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions anticipated then.
