NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
144 PM EDT Monday Jul 6 2015 


Synopsis... 
unsettled weather conditions will prevail today as a frontal 
boundary lifts north this afternoon. The front finally moves north 
of the local area late tonight into Tuesday...with showers and 
thunderstorms becoming more isolated to widely scattered. The 
next cold front will slowly approach from the north and west 
through the end of the week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
have updated forecast to raise probability of precipitation to likely through the next few 
across most of southeast Virginia/NE NC. This is where latest rap/Storm Prediction Center mesoanalysis 
depicts surface based convective available potential energy in excess of 3000 j/kg...along with some 
enhanced low level convergence. Added "heavy rain" wording to the 
forecast here as well. Latest hrrr picking up well on this. 
Overall...expect coverage in these areas to diminish to scattered 
after 21z...as areas of the Piedmont tend to increase in coverage as 
stronger lift associated with the upper low moves closer to the County Warning Area. 


Previous discussion... late morning analysis indicating remnant 
surface frontal boundary now pushing north into northern Virginia/Delaware-Maryland-Virginia region. 
Flow aloft is from the south-southwest with upper low centered from the upper 
Ohio Valley into the Tennessee Valley. A very moist airmass remains in 
place with dew points 70-75 f and precipitable waters  from 1.60" to 2.00". Current 
radar showing one small area of convection over eastern/NE NC and this 
will briefly affect the Outer Banks. Also a few isolated showers 
over far northwest sections of the County Warning Area...otherwise skies average 
partly/mostly cloudy with nothing on the radar.With the front very 
weak and sliding north...and the upper low to our west and filling 
in/heights rising the overall trigger for widespread precipitation will 
be a little lower than yesterday (but still well above climo). A 
fair amount of model discrepancy with respect to exact placement 
of features later today (gfs hitting seabreeze harder while the 
NAM is most aggressive farther inland). For now will maintain 
scattered thunderstorm wording this afternoon...mainly after 18z with probability of precipitation 
40-50% most areas (highest far northwest and interior portions of the far 
se). May raise probability of precipitation to likely later this afternoon/early this evening 
depending on where storms ultimately develop. Locally heavy rain 
again will be primary concern and some cell training/back- 
building possible through the afternoon as low level jet becomes 
similar in magnitude and direction to the mean flow from 600-850mb 
(low mbe values). Some gusty winds also possible in any storms but 
no severe weather is expected as effective shear values are fairly 
low...20 to 25 knots. Will continue to highlight potential in severe weather potential statement. Vrb 
clouds- pcldy today...W/ hi temperatures from the l/m80s northwest to the u80s/around 
90f southeast. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Wednesday/... 
hanging onto 30-40% probability of precipitation over much of the forecast area until about mdngt tonight 
before lowering thereafter. The pattern finally looks a bit drier 
beginning Tuesday...as the upper low weakens while tracking into new 
eng and weak ridging aloft devlops along the middle Atlantic CST. West/ a 
SW flow at the surface...and rising 850 mb temperatures...expect typical 
summertime heat with hi temperatures into the l90s most areas (for now 
stayed a tad below guidance for highs due to moist antecedent 
conds). Hi temperatures at the immediate coast will be in the 80s. Will 
have just a 20% pop confined to the middle/late afternoon/early evening 
period most places. Warm/humid Tuesday night with lows in l/M/70s. 
Wednesday expected to be rain-free into the afternoon...before a cold front from the northwest 
drifts closer...combining west/ heating could possibly result in isolated 
storms lt in the day just about anyway in forecast area. Hi temperatures away from the 
immediate coast 90-95f (u80s at the beaches). 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
typical summertime pattern to prevail for the end of the coming week 
into next weekend as a sub-tropical ridge builds over the southeastern U.S. 
And a series of disturbances pass mainly north of the local area. 
Isolated or widely scattered after/evening thunderstorms will be possible each day (20-30% 
pop). A weak cold front may drop south into the local area next 
weekend which would promote a little better coverage of thunderstorms. Lows 
through the period in the upper 60s to middle 70s. High temperatures in the upper 
80s to middle 90s...except low/middle 80s at the beaches. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Monday through Saturday/... 
frontal boundary has lifted north of the region this afternoon 
with scattered showers increasing in the southerly flow over 
southeast Virginia and northeast NC. Scattered showers and isolated 
thunderstorms will continue to affect primary ecg/orf/phf from 18z through 
23z. Widely scattered showers will develop closer to ric and sby 
by late afternoon and into early evening. Scattered heavy rain 
showers will result in IFR visibilities of 1 to 2 miles 
especially at orf...phf and ecg between 18z to 23z. Scattered 
showers and storms will decrease in coverage faster than the past 
several evenings. 


A more typical Summer pattern expected for Tuesday into Wednesday. Just 
isolated late afternoon/evening thunderstorms will be possible those two days. 


&& 


Marine... 
no headlines in the short term today through Tuesday night. A frontal boundary 
laying across southern Virginia early this morng...will lift north across the waters 
during today...eventually moving north of the entire waters tonight. Southeast 
winds at or below 10 knots will become S over all the waters by early 
tonight...then south-southwest 10 to 15 knots by early Tuesday morng. South-southwest winds 10 to 15 
knots will continue Tuesday through Wednesday...in advance of the next cold front. 
That front will cross the area Wednesday night into Thursday morng...with 
another front moving through Thursday night into Friday morng. Winds/waves/seas 
will continue to remain below Small Craft Advisory criteria.
