NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1009 PM EDT Friday Apr 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure over eastern New England slowly retreats to the 
northeast through tonight...while low pressure tracks across 
North Florida. That low will be slow to move off the southeast 
coast through Sunday...as high pressure builds south from eastern 
Canada. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Saturday morning/... 
a cool evening across the forecast area under a mostly cloudy sky. Tough to 
find exact coverage of low level cloudiness under the extensive middle/hi level 
cloudiness spreading into the forecast area from the SW. Surface observation showing an 
800-1200 feet deck along the coast. 


For tonight...cloudiness will continue to spread NE from the eastern Gulf states as 
surface low pressure slowly tracks across North Florida. Watching light rain beginning to 
move through central NC this evening...and that -ra will continue to do 
so through midnight. Models (nam/gfs) differ on how far north-northeast the 
precipitation shield gets overnight. 12z/18 European model (ecmwf) leans in the direction of 
the GFS as does current forecast. Will blend all three for tonight...in 
bringing slight chance-chance probability of precipitation north of the Virginia-NC mainly after mdngt and north to 
about ric by lt tonight. Will have likely probability of precipitation after mdngt for portions 
of NE NC. Low temperatures mainly from the l/m40s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Saturday morning through Sunday/... 
will continue west/ a blend of GFS/European model (ecmwf) and current forecast for precipitation 
coverage on Sat into sun as low pressure is slo to move off the southeast 
Continental U.S. CST. After Sat morning...expecting precipitation shield to gradually sink S 
into sun as surface hi pressure from eastern Canada begins to build S. 


Generally kept areas north of a ric to wal dry for the event but west/ mostly 
cloudy conds through most of Sat. Across southern Virginia into NE NC will have chance 
to likely probability of precipitation (highest in NE nc)...though trending down from Sat afternoon 
into sun. Significant amount of cloudiness expected to remain over mainly southeast Virginia/NE NC 
well into sun...while elsewhere becomes p/msny. Onshore winds will remain 
gusty near/at the CST. 


Hi temperatures Sat from the l/m50s at the CST to around 60f across interior southeast 
Virginia/NE NC...and the m60s well inland north and northwest of ric. Low temperatures from 
the l/m40s inland to around 50f at the CST in southeast Virginia/NE NC. Hi temperatures 
sun from 55 to 60f at the CST to the M/u60s inland. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Friday/... 
near seasonable normal temperatures will highlight the extended period 
forecast. A cold front will bring showers to the local area on 
Tuesday. 


Southern stream associated coastal low slowly lifts northeastward off the middle- 
Atlantic coast Monday night-Tuesday morning as a northern stream shortwave 
digs over the Great Lakes region into the Ohio Valley. Associated 
cold front will push toward the local area as the parent low lifts 
across New England. Medium range guidance is in good agreement 
with pushing the front through the local area Tuesday afternoon and 
off the coast Tuesday evening. While the best dynamics will be over 
the Ohio Valley as the front crosses the local area...a weaker 
leading shortwave will combine with increasing winds aloft for 
ample forcing for ascent along the front. Precipitation waters will begin 
to recover as low level 850 mb flow increases. The result will be 
scattered afternoon showers. Theta-E advection and temperatures in the 
middle-upper 70s will also produce a marginally unstable...so thunder 
cannot be ruled out...especially across the south. 
However...dewpoints in the low-middle 50s...little cape/lift in the 
mixed phase layer and modest shear will limit overall coverage. 
Have only mentioned a slight chance Tuesday afternoon for thunder. 
Remnant middle level moisture in northwesterly flow will coincide with the 
trough axis over the local area Tuesday night-Wednesday morning...as 
additional energy dives down the backside of the upper trough. 
This will likely result in some middle level clouds Wednesday some 
sprinkles possible...especially over the northern local area and Eastern 
Shore. High pressure builds into the region Wednesday night-thurs. A 
warm front is forecast to lift over the middle-Atlantic region Thursday 
night-Friday as a western Continental U.S. Trough amplifies an upper ridge over the 
east. Forecast remains dry through the end of next week...with a 
front possibly impacting the region next weekend. 


Temperatures will warm into the middle-upper 70s (to near 80 inland) thanks 
to southerly flow in advance of the approaching cold front. Cooler Wednesday- 
Thursday behind the front (nw-west winds) with highs generally in the 
upper 60s-low 70s. Return flow on the backside of high pressure 
located just offshore will warm temperatures back into the middle-upper 70s 
Friday. Overnight lows generally in the upper 40s-low 50s except 
Thursday morning when lows will be in the middle-upper 40s. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
with NE/east-northeast flow over the area...coastal sites may experience 
additional MVFR ceilings Friday night through Sat morning. IFR 
conditions are not likely but may occur at kecg overnight. 


Strengthening low pressure over the Gulf of Mexico will track east-northeast 
and into the Atlantic Ocean trough Sunday. Upper level clouds will 
be present over the forecast area through Sat with -ra or sprinkles also 
associated with the system will make there way north overnight and 
begin to effect taf sites by 08z Sat. Ksby looks to be too far 
north to see any precipitation. High pressure builds in the the northwest 
helping to dry out the airmass and eliminate any precipitation chances 
Sat evening. NE flow continues Sat though Monday as high pressure 
north of the area moves east and wedges south into the mid-Atlantic. 


&& 


Marine... 
surface high pressure remains ridged over the waters this 
afternoon...resulting in ongoing northeasterly flow. Speeds generally 10-15 
knots over the Bay and coastal waters. Seas remain 
elevated...averaging 5-8 feet. Have dropped the Small Craft Advisory for the mouth of 
the Bay as waves have dropped below 4 feet and for the sound as 
winds have dropped below 15 knots. A surface low will move across northern Florida 
today...emerging off the southeast coast Sat. Meanwhile...surface high 
pressure will build eastward over southeast Canada. The result will be 
continued NE-east flow over the waters. The surface low will slowly build 
northward through the weekend and early next week as high pressure remains 
ridged over the waters. As a result...NE-E flow will persist through 
early next week. Seas will likely remain 4-6 feet through Monday. 
Headlines have been extended through the fourth period (sunday) for 
all coastal waters. A strengthening pressure gradient over the southern 
waters Sat night into sun may produce Small Craft Advisory winds speeds...but it 
will depend on the low track. Otherwise...flow returns to the S 
Monday night-Tuesday in advance of a cold front. The front will cross 
the waters Tuesday afternoon- evening. Winds will back to the northwest 
behind the front with Small Craft Advisory conditions possible Tuesday night- 
Wednesday. High pressure returns through the end of the week.
