NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
352 am EST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will track northeast along the middle Atlantic coast 
today...then quickly move northeast and away from the area tonight. 
A secondary low tracks across the region Thursday. High pressure 
builds in from the west Thursday night into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /today/... 
low pressure off the Carolina coast this morning will deepen as it 
quickly moves NE along the middle atlntc coast this afternoon and evening. 
Models continue to indicate deep moisture along with good dymncs through 18z 
with dmnshg effects as the best sprt moves NE of the area by 00z. 


Expect MDT to occasional heavy rainfall with 100 probability of precipitation through the Erly afternoon hours 
forecast area wide. Temperatures slowly falling from the 12z readings. Temperatures by afternoon 
range from the m30s-l50s. Forecast becomes problematic across xtreme 
northwestern counties between 14z-20z. Cold air advection remains rather weak...but intensity of 
the precipitation will likely cause enough dynmcl cooling for surface temperatures to 
drop into the middle 30s. This will likely result in a several hour prd of 
mixed rain/wet snow if not all wet snow across portions of Louisa 
/ Fluvanna counties. Slushy accumls of a dusting to 1/2 inch possible 
(louisa - palmyra) with amts of 1/2 to around 1 inch closer to the 
Albemarle County line (boswells tavern - antioch). Expect any accumls 
would mainly be on grassy/elvated sfcs. A rain/snow mix is also 
possible across Caroline / Hanover / on NE into the Northern Neck for a 
few hours...but no accumls are expeceted there. No advsrys planned 
at this time...but have put a bit more detail in morning severe weather potential statement. 


Moisture Shallows aftr 18z..so precipitation should steadily lessen in 
intensity before ending late afternoon or early evening. Locations that 
change to snow could actually Switch Back over to -ra as precipitation 
intensity wanes. A decent soaking expected with total quantitative precipitation forecast amounts 
ranging from 2/3rds to 1 inch west of the Bay...1 to 1.5 inches 
along the coast. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Friday/... 
coastal low and assctd precipitation quickly move NE this evening...but enough left 
over moisture seen in tsctns for lingering rain or mixed rain/snow showers 
this evening. Kept a 20-30 pop. Models then show a several hour prd of "non 
eventful" cndtns from late evening through Erly morning hours as first 
systm leaves but with a secondary impulse hot on its heels aftr 09z. 
Models differ a bit timing and moisture wise...but will keep chance probability of precipitation 
across western counties late tonite. Thermal profiles and time of day 
suggests snow showers (nrn cntys)...rain/snow shower mix nrth of Virginia/NC 
line to say i64...remaining liquid across southeastern Virginia and NE NC. Lows 
30-35 xcpt u30s southeastern coastal areas. No accumls anticipated but a 
dusting of snow can't be ruled outm in any snow shower. 


Short wave tracks across the forecast area Thursday morning...moving off the coast by late 
in the day. Mostly cloudy with chance morning probability of precipitation (rain/snow shower mix) 
with temperatures in the m30s-l40s...then becoming pt sunny with slght chance probability of precipitation 
in the afternoon as temperatures slowly rise into the 40s. 


High pressure builds into the area from the west Thursday night and 
Friday. Expect clearing skies & dry conditions for those early morning 
Holiday shoppers. Lows in m20s-l30s. Highs Friday in the l-m40s. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
going with a blend of the 12z/25 GFS/European model (ecmwf) for the extended 
period. Will have a mainly dry forecast for the region with milder 
temperatures expected for sun and Monday. Hi pressure will settle off the middle 
Atlantic and southeast CST for Sat into Monday. A backdoor front will drop across 
the area Monday afternoon/night with some cloudiness and maybe isolated precipitation. 
The center of hi pressure will build across New England on Tuesday. Maximum temperatures 
will be in the upper 40s to middle 50s Sat...in the lower to middle 60s 
sun and Monday...and in the upper 40s to upper 50s Tuesday. Min temperatures will 
be in the middle 20s to middle 30s Sat morng...in the upper 30s to lower 40s 
sun morng...in the 40s Monday morng...and in the middle 30s to middle 40s 
Tuesday morng. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
low pressure moving up the coast will bring a decent slug of 
precipitation to the local area overnight and Wednesday. Ceilings 
will lower to IFR/LIFR overnight through much of Wednesday at all 
taf sites. Colder air wrapping around the coastal low may allow 
for a brief period of -rasn Wednesday afternoon/evening northwest of kric. 
Gusty north-northwest winds develop later this morning and average 
10-20kt with higher gusts of 25-35kt likely at the immediate 
coast. Winds are expected to diminish from west to east through 
Wednesday evening. 


A brief reprieve in adverse conditions should be anticipated late 
Wednesday evening and overnight...however a secondary low pressure system 
should bring another round of precipitation to the area early 
Thursday morning through early afternoon before moving off the coast 
and dissipating. Colder temperatures in place will support a little better 
chance for -sn or -rasn along and northwest of a general line from ksby- 
kric-kfvx. Visibilities should improve much faster than ceilings...which 
are then expected to improve/lift/break-up by Thursday evening. 


&& 


Marine... 
low pressure will intensify as it moves north along the middle-Atlantic 
coast from late this morning into the afternoon. Based on current 
trends and model guidance...gale force gusts appear likely over all 
waters but the rivers today...so have added the remaining Middle Bay 
zones to the Gale Warning. Gusts may reach 40 knots on the coastal 
waters. Strong sca's remain in place for the rivers through 5 PM. 
Winds NE early this morning will switch to northwest this afternoon...as the 
system lifts north of the area into tonight. The longer trajectory over 
the water this morning should allow seas to build to between 6-10 feet 
(highest out near 20 nm). 


Sca's will likely replace the gales for a time this evening and 
tonight...as the low quickly moves NE and away from the area. A 
brief lull in winds Thursday morning before yet another cold air advection surge seen 
Thursday evening into Friday morning behind upper level low that exits off the CST. 
High pressure builds over the area Friday aftn/night. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
a coastal flood statement remains in effect for Maryland/Virginia zones adjacent 
to the Atlantic waters and the Lower Bay due to strong north-northeast flow Wednesday 
morning leading to water levels within a few tenths of minor 
flooding thresholds during the late morning/early afternoon high tide 
cycle. Rainfall amounts to 1.50" to 2.50" will also tend to 
exacerbate the flooding to some extent. Will continue to monitor 
closely and a coastal Flood Advisory will be issued if conditions 
warrant. Anomalies should fall off rather quickly later Wednesday/Wednesday 
night as winds turn northwest/offshore so do not expect any additional 
flooding concerns. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 5 PM EST this afternoon for 
anz635>638. 
Gale Warning until 5 PM EST this afternoon for anz632>634. 
Small Craft Advisory until 10 PM EST this evening for anz630-
