NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
115 am EST Thursday Jan 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds east and becomes centered over the middle 
Atlantic overnight. The high slides offshore Thursday...before a 
cold front crosses the region Thursday night. Cold high pressure 
then returns for late Friday and Saturday. An area of low pressure 
will affect the area Sunday into early Monday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am this morning/... 
surface hi pressure slides east into the middle Atlantic overnight...allowing for 
a mostly clear sky. Expect lows mainly in the upper teens to lower 20s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am this morning through Saturday/... 
short term period will feature mainly dry conds with continued below 
normal temperatures. Southerly flow returns Thursday afternoon ahead of the next cold 
front which crosses the region Thursday night. Expect increasing clouds 
through the day with hi temperatures ranging from the lower 40s north to upper 40s S. 
Maintained a low chance for rain (20-30% pops) late Thursday afternoon for 
areas north and west of ric...continuing to areas north of I-64 Thursday night as 
the front moves through. Despite decent forcing...moisture will be 
lacking hence the low probability of precipitation. Ptype is rain Thursday afternoon/eveng 
transitioning to potentially some ice pellets/snow mixed in overnight. No big 
impacts anticipated with very little quantitative precipitation forecast expected. Hi pressure then 
slowly builds in from the west Friday leading to dry conds...decreasing 
clouds...and hi temperatures in the upper 30s to middle 40s. Continued dry weather 
into Sat under a sunny-mostly sunny sky. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
timing differences along with some significant 12z model changes 
makes this a low confidence forecast sun into Monday. GFS much faster 
in bringing precipitation across the middle atlntc region Sunday than both the 
European model (ecmwf) and Canadian. The quicker GFS solution would lead to p-type issues 
across northern most counties Sunday while the slower solutions would mainly be 
rain (or a rain wet snow mix across the north) in the afternoon. 
Conversely...the GFS is quicker to end precipitation late Sunday night while 
the slower solutions keep precipitation going for the better part of Monday with 
colder air oozing south. 


With the above in mind...tried to blend the forecast as much as possible 
knowing that later model runs should shed better light on the systm. 
Dry and cold Sat night with increasing cloudiness. Lows in the 20s xcpt l30s 
southeastern coastal areas. Kept a bit of forecast continuity and brought low chance 
probability of precipitation across western counties Sunday morning. Thicknesses suggest some sleet 
possible at the start across northwestern most counties with rain ovrsprdg the forecast area 
Sunday afternoon as the low prs tracks across northern Virginia. Highs in the 40s 
as the cold air lurks just north of the forecast area. Likely rain Sunday 
evening across the forecast area...but lowered to chance probability of precipitation aftr midnight. Kept a 
rain/snow mix across northern most counties late as the precipitation ends. Any p type 
issues will all depend on how fast the colder air to the north can 
come south before precipitation ends. Lows Sunday night in the 30s to near 40 
across NC NE counties near the Albemarle sand. 


Split mondays forecast up into 2 segments as well. Chance rain along and 
east of i95 in the morning...drying it out in the afternoon as the 
trailing front clears the coast. Could even see a rain/snow mix across 
the lower Maryland Eastern Shore Erly Monday. Highs in the u30s north to M-u40s S. 


Canadian high prs builds into the area Monday night through Tuesday night. 
Lows Monday night uteens to u20s. Highs Tuesday in the 30s. Lows Tuesday night 
in the 20s to near 30. 


Yet anthr moist southern stream systm prognosticated to come out of the Gulf 
Coast states and move NE along the southeastern coast Wednesday. This sytm bears 
watching as the cold air may be harder to dislodge. Went with chance 
probability of precipitation (liquid) for now with highs 40-45. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Thursday through Monday/... 
clear skies with high pressure over the region as of 06z. High 
pressure moves offshore later today as a cold front approaches 
from the northwest. The wind will become southerly along with an increase 
in middle/high clouds...skies generally becoming broken/overcast by 15z but ceilings 
remain 10-15k feet. 


The cold front will cross the area late tonight with only a 
slight chance of -shra along and north of a ric-sby line...and perhaps 
precipitation ending as a mix of -rasn at sby. A gusty northwest wind is expected 
Friday as Canadian high pressure builds in from the northwest. That area 
of high pressure slides across the region Friday night and 
Saturday...with a more moist frontal system impacting the region 
Sunday into Monday. 


&& 


Marine... 
extended sca's through 4 am for northern coastal waters (and maintaining the 
headlines through 4 am for southern coastal waters). 


Only a brief period of "sub sca" cndtns expeceted Thursday before the next 
systm apprchs from the west. Winds quickly become south Thursday as high 
prs moves off the coast...then SW as a warm front briefly lifts north 
across the region ahead of a strong cdfrnt Erly Friday morning. Will 
likely see sca's for the winds ahead of the front. 


Ctrng cold air advection prognosticated behind the cold front Friday into Sat. Winds become northwest 
and increases into the gale range. Data suggests gusts between 40-45 kts 
across the coastal waters (highest north of Parramore isl) with 35 kts 
gusts in the ches Bay. Given temperatures falling below 30 degrees...freezing 
spray remains in forecast with the potential for a freezing spray 
advisory across northern coastal waters where air temperatures in the l20s are expeceted. 
Seas/waves quickly increase in response to the gusty winds. Seas average 
7-10 feet with waves 4-5 feet during this period. 


Cndtns begin to improve Sat night as the Canadian high tracks over 
the region. Next system is anticipated to track into the area from the 
southwest late sun into Monday. Will likely see anthr round of sca's 
with this systm.
