NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
741 PM EST Tuesday Jan 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
a strong low pressure system will push northeast into the Canadian 
Maritimes tonight into Wednesday as high pressure slowly builds 
east into the middle Atlantic. The high slides offshore 
Thursday...before a cold front crosses the area Thursday night. 
High pressure then returns for late Friday into Saturday. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
latest surface analysis reveals ~981 mb low pressure just east of Cape Cod 
with ~1024 mb hi pressure centered over Wisconsin. The low will advance 
newrd towards the Gulf of ME then Canadian Maritimes tonight as the 
hi moves into the Ohio Valley. With the middle Atlantic between these 
two features...northwest flow continues tonight with decreasing clouds. 
Cannot rule out a flurry for some areas this eveng but this should 
be isoltd. Temperatures will be about five degrees below normal for late 
Jan...with lows mainly in the low to middle 20s. Wind chill values 
will fall into the teens everywhere...with upper single digits possible 
over the lower Maryland Eastern Shore. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday/... 
short term period will feature mainly dry conds with continued below 
normal temperatures. For Wednesday/Wednesday night...strong surface hi pressure builds east from the 
Ohio Valley into the middle Atlantic region as a highly-amplified upper- 
level trough pulls offshore. Expect a mostly sunny-mostly clear sky 
with slowly diminishing northwest winds. Highs Wednesday range from the middle 30s 
over the lower Eastern Shore to the upper 30s/lower 40s elsewhere. Similar 
lows Wednesday night as tonight...low to middle 20s...but wind chill values 
will not be quite as low due to the light winds. 


Southerly flow returns Thursday ahead of the next cold front which crosses the 
region Thursday night. Despite decent forcing...moisture will be lacking 
a bit so will go no higher than 20-30% probability of precipitation at this time with the best 
chance over northern areas. Ptype is rain Thursday afternoon/eveng transitioning to 
a rain/snow mix overnight. Any precipitation will be light. Hi pressure then slowly 
builds in from the west Friday leading to dry conds...decreasing 
clouds...and hi temperatures in the upper 30s to middle 40s. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
northern stream remains active during the extended period with below 
normal temperatures prevailing. Trough exits the coast Friday night/Sat 
morning...as cold Canadian high pressure builds over the 
middle-Atlantic during the day Sat. The result will be mostly sunny 
skies and temperatures in the low-middle 30s. 850 mb temperatures prognosticated to be around 
-10c (-1 Standard dev). Thereafter...models in good agreement now with 
pushing the surface high offshore sun as the next northern stream shortwave 
digs into the southern states. Associated surface low prognosticated to lift 
from the lower MS valley northeastward over the central Appalachians sun...and 
north of the region Sun night. Trailing cold front prognosticated to cross 
the region Sun night. Deep 850 mb trough expected to advect moisture 
northward from the eastern Gulf into the region in advance of the front. 
Combined with height falls and increasing winds aloft...widespread 
precipitation is expected to overspread much of the area late sun into Sun 
night. Return flow will warm temperatures into the low-middle 40s (possibly 
warmer) sun...with the coldest air remaining over the Great Lakes 
region. The result will be predominately rain...but a brief rain/snow 
mix is possible at the onset as warm air advection kicks in. However...no 
accumulation is expected. All rain late sun-Sun night...with a 
possible change over across the northern zones late Sat night as cold air 
punches into the region. Westerly push behind the shortwave will result in 
drying conditions Monday-Tuesday as cold Canadian high pressure builds in 
from the northwest. By Tuesday...temperatures forecast to be back into the middle-upper 
30s.

Aviation /01z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
VFR/dry weather is expected Tuesday night through Thursday afternoon as high 
pressure moves east and centers over Virginia. Northwest winds gusting to ~15kt 
will prevail Wednesday due to the continued tight pressure gradient.

pressure gradient over the waters remains strong between low pressure 
off the NE coast and high pressure over the Ohio Valley/Midwest. The 
result is ongoing Small Craft Advisory conditions over all waters. Northwest gusts up to 25 
knots over the Bay and 30 knots over the coastal waters observed this 
afternoon. Low pressure will continue to lift northeastward along the NE 
coast and into the Canadian Maritimes as cold Canadian high pressure 
slowly builds in from the west. Another surge of low-level cold air advection is 
expected tonight to go along with the already strong pressure 
gradient. Have bumped up winds slightly overnight...into the 20-25 
knots range in the Bay and 25 to 30 knots range in the coastal waters. 
However...gale conditions are not anticipated as the strongest 
gradient will be north of the waters. Seas will remain 
elevated...ranging from 6-9 feet over the coastal waters through the 
night and into tomorrow...before slowly subsiding through the day Wednesday 
to 5-7 feet. High pressure finally arrives Wednesday night...with winds 
finally diminishing at or below 15 knots. Seas will continue to subside through 
the night...falling below 5 feet late Wednesday night. High pressure and 
southerly flow briefly return to the waters Thursday before the next front 
crosses the waters late Thursday night. Another cold air advection northwest surge is 
expected late Thursday night through Friday night. Small Craft Advisory conditions appear 
likely at this time. High pressure returns to the waters Sat and sun in 
advance of yet another cold front set to cross the waters Sun 
night.
