NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
557 am EDT Sat Sep 5 2015 


Synopsis... 
a backdoor cold front has pushed south across the area into the 
carolin's. Strong high pressure across the northern states will 
slowly build south to off the middle Atlantic coast today through 
Sunday resulting in a prolonged northeast flow. Low pressure 
develops off the southeastern coast early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
current analysis indicating backdoor front has pushed well into 
the Carolinas with high pressure centered over New England. 
Scattered showers just east of Accomack this morning were moving 
southwest towards Hampton Roads and will move across southeast Virginia 
and northeast NC between 09-12z. Do not expect showers to be too 
widespread but do progress chance probability of precipitation from the southeast Virginia and 
the NC coast west into south central Virginia and much of northeast NC 
through the morning and afternoon. High res models have backed off 
on the overall coverage...so have caped probability of precipitation at around 35 
percent. Looking at the best moisture flux...do believe scattered 
shower activity will be confined to the lower end of Eastern 
Shore...southeast Virginia and northeast NC. Models disagree on how far 
west shower activity will spread...but do believe scattered 
showers are possible as far west as Emporia and Lake Gaston later 
this morning and early afternoon. Will have to watch radar and 
moisture trends to see just how much shower activity actually 
develops and how far west it does. For now overall moisture for 
widespread rain looks limited. 


Skies will become mostly cloudy in most areas once again as 
stratus becomes widespread especially south and east of ric. 
Cloud cover across the Piedmont might see a few more breaks. 
Northeast winds will increase to 20-25 knots near the coast as 
pressure rises continue with ~1025 mb surface high centered over New 
England building south. Seas will build this morning resulting in 
rough surf and a moderate threat of rip current today and into 
Sunday. 


High temperatures today rather mild in the lower 80s with a few inland 
areas perhaps reaching the middle 80s depending on the amount of 
sunshine. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday/... 
with the persistent northeast flow the weather looks to remain 
somewhat unsettled over much southeastern Virginia...northeast NC and 
Eastern Shore through the weekend. The surface high pressure will 
continue to build southeast allowing NE winds to remain gusty (to 25-30 
mph) near the coast tonight before decreasing Sunday. Chances for 
a few scattered showers primarily over southeast/south central Virginia 
and northeast NC remain in place Sunday...but activity should be 
rather scattered and will not be a washout. The uncertainty 
regarding clouds and precipitation will hings on development of weak low pressure 
in vicinity of southeast Continental U.S. Coast. Cooler temperatures continue Sunday and Monday...but 
conditions remain humid through Monday. Drier air over northern counties 
during the weekend...should keep conditions mostly dry over the 
Piedmont from ric north and west. 


By Monday...gradual erosion of the onshore flow is expected...leading 
to a better probability for more sunshine and warmer conditions with 
a 20-30% in southeast Virginia/NE NC. 


Hi temperatures low 80s...and low to middle 80s Monday. Most low temperatures in the 
middle 60s to around 70. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
a rather diffuse weather pattern to start the work week with zonal flow 
across the northern Continental U.S. And weak troughing over the southeast states 
into the Tennessee Valley thus keeping the Middle Atlantic States on the 
fringe of periodic convective activity...especially near coastal 
areas of southeast Virginia/NE NC. Fairly light onshore winds on Tuesday finally 
give way to more S-SW winds Tuesday night through the end of the week. 
This should result in a brief warm-up during the middle-week 
timeframe. Highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s Tuesday-Thursday and lows in 
the middle 60s to lower 70s Monday night-Thursday night. Longwave troughing 
begins to take shape Thursday/Friday across the northern plains/Great Lakes 
areas and should push a more well-defined cold front through the 
Middle Atlantic States very late in the period. 


&& 


Aviation /10z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
moist NE flow will prevail across the region today. MVFR stratus 
will develop at all taf sites early this morning with possible IFR 
ceilings at kric and ksby between 11z-13z. The low stratus will be 
slow to break up until midday or early afternoon...especially the southeast 
coastal sites where MVFR conditions may persist through the day. 
Showers will be most prevalent across the southeast. Winds will also 
gust between 20-25 knots along the immediate coast. 


Similar conditions are expected on Sunday...then improved conditions 
to start next week. 


&& 


Marine... 
Small Craft Advisory conditions will persist across the waters through late this 
afternoon or evening before gradually improving tonight into Sunday 
morning. NE winds will average 15-25 knots today...with some gusts to 
30 knots over the coastal waters north of the Virginia/NC border. Seas will 
top out between 5-6 feet (perhaps up to 7 feet outer northern coastal 
waters)...with waves reaching 4-5 feet on the Chesapeake Bay 
(highest at the mouth). Conditions improve by this evening or 
tonight for most of the Bay...Currituck Sound...and eastern Virginia rivers 
so that Small Craft Advisory flags can end. Still expecting waves to remain around 
4 feet at the mouth of the Bay into Sun morning...with seas 
lingering around 5 feet. Seas will be slowest to improve across the 
southern waters on Sunday as seas remain at or above 5 feet. Thus...have 
extended the Small Craft Advisory south of Cape Charles into Sunday afternoon. After 
that...sub-sca conditions appear likely to start next week. 


In addition...the onshore flow and high nearshore waves will enhance 
the rip current threat into Monday. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
persistent NE flow today will result in tidal anomalies around 
0.5 feet above normal during the afternoon/evening high tide cycle. 
The latest guidance continues to show the possibility of a few 
tidal gauges nearing/reaching minor flooding thresholds this 
afternoon/evening. The best chance will be across the middle ches 
Bay at Lewisetta and Bishops Head this evening...but confidence is 
not high enough to issue an advisory at this time. Still have plenty of 
time for next shift to assess the threat with newer guidance. Both 
Ocean City and sewells pt appear to fall short of minor flooding 
thresholds this afternoon and so do not plan to issue any headlines.
