NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
419 PM EST Friday Feb 5 2016 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds over the area tonight and Saturday...then moves 
off the middle Atlantic coast Saturday night and Sunday. Low pressure 
develops off the Florida coast Saturday night...then intensifys as 
it lifts northeast along the southeast and middle Atlantic coasts 
Sunday through Monday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Saturday morning/... 
low prs off the NE coast continues to pull away from the region with surface 
high building east from the Tennessee vlly. Tsctns dry resulting in a 
mainly clear sky tonite. Question as to where winds decouple which 
will allow temperatures to quickly drop. This appears likely across the 
Piedmont while slowly dmnshg winds will keep airmass mixed along 
the coast. Lows in the M-u20s xcpt u20s-l30s along the coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Saturday morning through Monday/... 
surface high moves across the region Sat then shifts off the middle atlntc 
coast Sat night. Meanwhile...surface trough remains nearly stationary ivof Gulf 
Stream wall. Upshot will be dry cndtns with near normal temperatures. Highs Sat 
in the M-u40s. Lows Sat night in the m20s-l30s. 


All eyes then turn to the S as a potent short wave tracking across the southern 
states will spawn anthr storm off the fla coast Sat night with 
explosive cyclogensis prognosticated east of the Carolina coast sun. The 
low continues to intensify as it tracks NE along the coastal trough Sun 
night then across the vacapes Monday. This systm will have a major impact 
for marine interests along the eastern Seaboard Erly next week. 


With respect to sensible weather inland...models differ with just how far west any 
sgnfcnt moisture gets which will likely all depend on the systms track. 
Sref much farther west with the GFS/NAM keeping precipitation confined to 
coastal sctns. Leaned toward a NAM/GFS solution and confined precipitation to areas 
along and east of the ches Bay for now. Dry sun and Sun night west of 
the Bay. Grids will indicate chance probability of precipitation spreading NE along the NC and 
southeastern Virginia coast through the day sun with chance probability of precipitation spreading north along the 
Delaware-Maryland-Virginia Sun night. Critical thicknesses sprt precipitation type as rain. 
Highs sun 45-50...cooler along the coast...warmer over the Piedmont. 
Lows Sun night 30-35...xcpt 35-40 along the coast. In addition... 
strong / gusty north winds expeceted along the coast with gusts between 40-50 
miles per hour sun and Sun night over Virginia Beach / northern Outer Banks. Went ahead and 
addressed this in the severe weather potential statement. 


The ocean low departs to the NE Monday with the next systm quickly 
diving southeast from the Great Lakes and Ohio vlly regions. Although there 
probably will be a several hour prd of subsidence behind the departing ocean 
low...moisture quickly increases west to east through the day. Will maintain 
chance probability of precipitation western half of forecast area as the moisture from the upper level low crosses the 
mts. Precipitation type remains liquid with highs 45-50. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
surface low pressure lifts NE well off the middle-Atlantic coast Monday 
night into Tuesday. Meanwhile...a potent upper low continues to 
dig southeast across the Ohio Valley Monday night...before heading 
east into the northeast U.S. Tuesday into Wednesday. Thermal 
profiles appear cold enough for snow showers or rain/snow showers 
Monday night/Tuesday...and perhaps lingering into Wednesday across 
northern areas. Have adjusted daytime temperatures down a bit more 
starting Tuesday as it appears cold air arrives and then is slow 
to leave until the end of next week. Still too early to talk about 
any accumulating snow...but there certainly could be a 
little...especially across the north/northwest portion of the forecast area during the 
Monday night/Tuesday time frame...as a potent vorticity lobe rotates 
through. The weather then looks dry next Thursday/Friday. Highs Tuesday in 
the upper 30s northwest to the low/middle 40s southeast. Highs Wednesday/Thursday mainly in the 
30s to low 40s. Lows through the period generally in the 20s to low 
30s. 


&& 


Aviation /21z Friday through Wednesday/... 
this mornings snow event has ended and scattered-broken clouds with bases 
around 4-8k feet will clear by sunset. Gusty northwest winds diminish by 
evening. Mostly clear with light winds overnight and on Saturday. 


Outlook...unsettled weather is forecast Sunday through Tuesday as 
various low pressure systems affect the region. There will be a 
chance for rain Sunday and Sunday night mainly orf/ecg as low 
pressure deepens off the coast. Northerly winds may become quite 
gusty at taf sites near the coast. An upper level system is 
expected to trigger rain and snow showers late Monday through 
Tuesday across the area. Brief IFR conditions will be possible in 
precipitation. Dry weather returns for Wednesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
winds will continue to diminish into the evening hours as high 
pressure to the west of the area begins to build in. Have ended 
the Small Craft Advisory for the rivers (save the lower james) as of 4 PM...and 
should be able to drop the Small Craft Advisory for the lower James...ches 
Bay...and Currituck Sound by 7 PM. Seas remain elevated (generally 
5-9ft)... and will slowly subside through the overnight hours. 
Have Small Craft Advisory for the coastal waters north of Cape Charles ending at 4 
am...and south of Cape Charles ending at 7 am. 


We should get a break in the action Saturday and the first half of 
Saturday night before the next system brings rough weather back to 
the marine area on Sunday. Low pressure bombs off the NC coast by 
late Sunday...then quickly heads NE and well out to sea on Monday. 
Latest model guidance shows a quick and significant increase in 
winds/seas across the southern waters by late Sunday morning through 
Sunday evening...with deteriorating conditions across the entire 
marine area by later Sunday into Sunday night. Felt confident 
enought to go ahead and issue a gale watch across the southern 
coastal waters and Currituck Sound starting 10 am sun for north-NE winds 
gusting to 40-45 knots. Solid Small Craft Advisory conditions appear likely across the 
remainder of the marine area as well...but will wait to hoist next 
wave of sca's until current headlines expire and we get another look 
at the models. Any north-northwest shift in the track of the surface low could 
easily push worse conditions across our marine area to the point 
where storm conditions would be attainable at least across southern 
areas and possibly farther north. Have seas increasing to 7-12 feet 
(highest south) for now and that could be too conservative given 
eventual strength and track of the low. Have waves reaching 5-6 feet 
at the mouth of the Bay late Sunday. Winds should diminish by Monday 
morning but seas will be slow to subside...and should remain 
elevated at least into Tuesday. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
river flood warnings remain in effect for the Blackwater above 
Franklin...Nottoway at Sebrell and Stony Creek...cashie at 
Windsor...Richmond/Westham and the Meherrin at Lawrenceville. This 
all due to the combo of recent snowmelt and the runoff from the 
recent heavy rainfall. See flsakq for details. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 7 PM EST this evening for 
anz630>634-638.
