NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
423 PM EDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


Synopsis... 
a frontal boundary over North Carolina will slide north and 
dissipate on Saturday. High pressure stays locked in place just 
offshore through early next week as low pressure passes well north 
of the middle Atlantic. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Saturday morning/... 
stationary frontal boundary remains in place this eveng over NC with an 
area of low-level moisture pooled near the front leading to a mostly 
cloudy sky over southern areas...mostly sunny to the north. Aloft...an upper-level 
ridge axis is situated along the eastern Seaboard. Will not include 
any chance for rain this eveng due to a lack of forcing. With a 
bit more forcing and moisture late overnight did introduce a slight 
chance for a shower. Partly to mostly cloudy skies expected with light 
onshore flow north of the front. Low temperatures in the middle to upper 60s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Saturday morning through Monday/... 
aforementioned surface front slides north and weakens in the process Sat 
morng...with a slight chance of a rain showers/thunderstorm through the day. Temperatures will 
be warmer than Friday as hi pressure strengthens offshore and southerly flow 
develops. Temperatures will rise into the middle to upper 80s in most 
areas...lower 80s over the lower Eastern Shore. 


For sun and Monday...upr-level ridge flattens out but with surface hi 
pressure remaining offshore and persistent southerly flow over the middle 
Atlantic...temperatures will be about five degrees above normal. Expect 
highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s both days...with lows in the upper 
60s to middle 70s. As for precipitation...best chance (40-50%) for 
afternoon/eveng rain will be over western areas both days...with less of a 
chance across the eastern half of the forecast area. The rain will be associated 
with transient middle-level shortwave troughs and developing surface Lee 
troughs...but confidence is not hi enough at this time to go with likely probability of precipitation 
anytime during the period. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
Summer-like pattern will persist through the medium range period 
as middle/upper level ridging centered along/off the southeast US 
coast...gradually shifts to the west-southwest and becomes anchored from the Gulf 
Coast to Tennessee Valley. Temperatures will begin about 5-10 f above 
average Tuesday before falling a few degrees Wednesday-Friday (although readings 
will remain a little above average through the end of the week). 


After a fairly high chance for scattered thunderstorms Monday evening (~40%)...Tuesday 
should be mainly dry in between the departing wave and a cold 
front that is slow to approach from the northwest. Mostly sunny with 
highs generally in the lower to middle 90s. Will carry a 20-30% chance for 
Tuesday evening as the cold front moves closer to the local area and 
heights aloft drop as the ridge breaks down. Did not go any higher 
however...as front looks to be weakening at this time and best 
lift/forcing remain north/west of the local area. Will carry 20-30% 
mainly over far southern Virginia/NE NC Wednesday as the boundary is slow to 
push through. Highs mainly upper 80s-lower 90s Wednesday. 


By Wednesday night-Fri...a general consensus of the GFS/ECMWF/wpc forecast 
does place the surface cold front south of the area with high pressure 
centered from the Great Lakes to the NE Continental U.S.. this should allow 
slightly cooler/drier air to move into the region...but the front 
does not looks very strong so highs will still average 85-90 f Thursday/Friday 
(coolest along the coast and eastern shore). Generally dry /partly-mostly 
sunny but will keep diurnal afternoon/early evening 20% probability of precipitation across the 
south. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Friday through Wednesday/... 
VFR conditions across area terminals to begin the period. A 
quasi-stationary front remains draped over the Carolinas back into 
the Missouri River valley. Northern terminals are sky clear or mostly 
so and expect this to persist at sby through the taf period. 
Farther south, some scattered-broken cumulus/SC persists from southeast Virginia/NE NC (invof 
orf/ecg) back to just west of kgso. Expect much of these clouds to 
scatter out this afternoon. And while a few isolated rain showers are 
possible, expect terminals remain dry through the day. 


Persistent low level moisture and light winds will likely yield a 
re-occurance of low clouds over the Piedmont, with increasing 
confidence that stratus drops ceilings into MVFR range at 
ric/phf/ecg...and even a low probability of tempo IFR ceilings after 
09z over the same areas. Will mention MVFR conds for now, with a 
scattered deck just above 1kft. While no significant visibility 
restrictions are expected, high res models showing potential for 
some patchy rain showers overnight. Areal coverage of these showers would 
be low, so will hold out of the taf for this issuance. 


Outlook...mainly dry weather with continued VFR conditions expected 
through much of the upcoming Holiday weekend. Slight to low 
chance probability of precipitation for afternoon/evening thunderstorms Sunday evening increase to 30 
to 40 percent Monday ahead of the next frontal passage. Otherwise, 
some potential for fog or low clouds will exist each day within a 
few hours of sunrise. 


&& 


Marine... 
high pressure centered from New York to New England providing east/NE flow 
across the marine area with wind speeds averaging around 10 knots. Will 
gradually see the winds turn to the east/southeast overnight/Saturday...but 
expect the winds to remain in the 10 to 15 knots range...well below Small Craft Advisory 
levels. With relatively warm waters...could see some diurnal effects 
with S/southeast flow channeling up the Bay Sat night and again Sun night 
with winds increasing to around 15 knots (and gusts close to 20 
kt)...but doubt it will be prolonged enough for any headlines. Seas 
will generally run 3 feet or less but may increase to 4 feet in the 
outer portion of 20nm mainly from Parramore Island on north late 
Saturday and Sunday. Bay waves will average 1-2 feet...but may build to 
2-3 feet Sat night and again Sunday night. Into early next week it 
will remain fairly quiet (outside of convection) with seas 2-4 feet 
and waves 1-2 feet or less as surface high remains anchored offshore and 
no significant fronts move into the area until late Tue/Wed. 


&&
