NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
429 PM EDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure and its associated cold front move into the area this 
evening...then push offshore tonight. The low will intensify while 
slowly tracking northeast off the middle Atlantic coast tonight through 
Friday. Cool and unsettled conditions will prevail on Wednesday... 
followed by drier conditions Thursday and Friday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Wednesday morning/... 
latest surface analysis shows low pressure developing over southeast 
PA/southern New Jersey with a cold front extending SW from this low into 
SW Virginia. As the front approaches the local area this evening...clouds 
will continue to increase from west to east. A strong shortwave 
currently seen on WV imagery over the Ohio Valley is prognosticated to 
dive southeast around the base of the amplifying upper low...reaching 
Virginia/NC overnight. This will in turn allow a closed low to develop 
over the local area tonight. As the shortwave/upper trough 
approach late today...expect showers to initially develop over northwest 
zones before spreading south/east overnight. Will carry 25-40% 
probability of precipitation north-northwest of kric through 00z. With the low cutting off over US 
tonight...the best forcing for showers will be across 
northern/eastern portions of the forecast area. Will carry likely probability of precipitation or 
high-end chance probability of precipitation (50-70%) across the Northern Neck/middle 
peninsula onto the Eastern Shore overnight...decreasing to ~20 
across SW zones (where dry conditions may prevail). Cannot 
completely rule out an elevated thunderstorm or two (given steep 500 mb to 700 mb 
lapse rates of 6.5 to 7c)...but will preclude from forecast at this time 
given fairly stable low levels. Lows tonight in the middle 40s...to 
low/middle 50s at the coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Wednesday morning through Friday/... 
closed low slowly moves east and offshore Wednesday. After a brief 
increase in deep moisture overnight...forecast soundings become 
fairly dry aloft over inland sections as the trough/surface reflection 
swing farther offshore...however a fairly sharp moisture gradient 
prognosticated along the coast. The Eastern Shore in particular appears to be 
set for a cloudy/cool day with showers likely. Will therefore keep 
chance probability of precipitation (25-50%) limited to far eastern Virginia...with likely 60-70% 
probability of precipitation on the Eastern Shore. Could end up being dry over far west/SW 
zones. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts tonight/Wednesday will average 0.25-0.75" on the Eastern 
Shore...generally only around .10" or less elsewhere. Favor cooler end 
of guidance for highs Wednesday...middle 60s SW to around 60/lower 60s NE. 
Other feature to note will be the increasing northwest winds by afternoon as 
the surface low intensifies fairly rapidly off the coast. Gusts to 
25-35 miles per hour will be possible by later afternoon/evening (especially near 
the coast). 


The closed low moves farther NE Wednesday night into Thursday...locating off 
the New England coast by 00z Friday. Any leftover shower chances 
by then will be limited to the Eastern Shore (20%). Decreasing 
clouds are also expected across interior Virginia. Lows Wednesday night in the 
low 40s to low 50s. Cool again Thursday with highs generally 60-65. 
Pressure gradient will remain tight in between sub 1000 mb surface low 
off Long Island and 1020 mb surface high over the Ohio/Tennessee Valley. Expect 
breezy to windy conditions with gusts to 35 miles per hour across the Eastern 
Shore...15-25 miles per hour elsewhere. 


Low pressure moves farther NE and away from the local area on 
Friday allowing for sunshine...diminishing winds...and milder 
temperatures. High Friday in the middle to upper 60s. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
low pressure lifts well to the NE Friday night and Saturday as 
upper ridging expands eastward from the central US. A weak trough 
clips the northern middle-Atlantic Saturday night and quickly moves off the 
coast Sunday. A high amplitude middle/upper level ridge builds over the 
eastern US Monday and Tuesday...with the axis shifting offshore by 
midweek. Given this...dry conditions will prevail through the medium 
range period. High temperatures should average in the upper 60s to 
around 70 Saturday and Sunday...and trend upward into the low/middle by 
Monday and Tuesday (perhaps warmer tuesday). Lows should average 
from the low/middle 40s northwest...to the low/middle 50s for southeast coastal 
locations. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
expect clouds to continue to increase through the evening and 
overnight with the approach of a weak cold front. Behind the 
front...stronger upper level support will help a cooler airmass dive 
into the area. Drizzle along with rain showers will be likely across 
the area as the upper wave moves through. Expect MVFR/IFR ceilings 
to develop overnight and last through noon on Wednesday. Winds will shift 
to the northwest after frontal passage and will increase in strength Wednesday 
afternoon as the pressure gradient increases behind the strengthening 
surface low to the east and high pressure building in from the northwest. 
Winds will gust to near 20kt during the afternoon. 


Drier air will filter into the area Wednesday evening as the surface high 
nudges farther east. Expect dry conditions across most of the forecast area Thursday 
and Friday with stronger northwest winds along the coast. 


&& 


Marine... 
a cold front will slowly cross the middle Atlantic coast tonight...with 
low pressure intensifying off the northeast coast Wednesday 
afternoon into Wednesday night. This will produce Small Craft Advisory 
conditions...beginning Wednesday afternoon for most of the area and 
continuing into at least Thursday. The current forecast wind is 
generally 20-25kt...with gusts to around 30kt for most of the marine 
area. There is a potential for low-end gale conditions late 
Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday evening primarily supported by 
the 21/12z NAM. At this time the current Small Craft Advisory was maintained given 
the potential for only marginal gale conditions...with an onset 
generally at or beyond 24hr from 4pm Tuesday. This system is 
expected to stall offshore Thursday night and Friday with Small Craft Advisory 
conditions likely continuing...especially for the ocean. With the 
flow being offshore from the northwest...seas would tend to stay capped at 
5-7 feet and tidal flooding is not expected. North/northwest flow is expected to 
continue into next weekend with speeds diminishing to 10-15kt and 
seas subsiding.
