Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
636 am EDT Tuesday Sep 16 2014 


Synopsis... 
a weak area of low pressure and its accompanying cold front 
will push off the coast by this afternoon. High pressure builds 
north of the region tonight through Thursday as low pressure 
lingers along the southeast coast. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
a weak surface low will be moving off the northern mdatlc CST by this 
afternoon...pushing its associated/weakening cold front east across the forecast area and 
off the CST. Very limited coverage of precipitation expecting this morning...especially 
eastern portions. A secondary weak surface trough to cross the forecast area later 
today...ptntlly west/ isolated rain showers (mnly over southern/southeast Virginia-NE nc). 
Otherwise...vrb clouds to pcldy today...W/ winds shifting to mainly west-northwesterly. Hi 
temperatures from the u70s to m80s. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Thursday/... 
high pressure presently over the northern plains will build north of the 
region tonight through Wednesday. Another surface high north of the Great 
Lakes then builds toward the region Wednesday night into Thursday. 
Meanwhile...low pressure will linger in vicinity of the southeast 
coast. This pattern will maintain persistent NE flow and result in 
mostly cloudy to overcast conditions over southern portions...with 
partly to mostly cloudy conditions over northern portions. Not much 
forcing is expected Tuesday night through Tuesday...so widespread 
rain showers are unlikely. However...will maintain 15-20% pop over far 
southern/southeast Virginia and NE NC to account for any rain showers creeping north from eastern NC 
or westward from the ocn. Highs should generally range through 70s 
Wednesday and Thursday. Lows Wednesday morning should range from 
the middle 50 north...to low 60s southeast...with low/middle 50s north to around 60f southeast 
Thursday morning. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
large area of hi pressure will build across southeast Canada and off the New 
England CST Thursday night through Sat...with a weaker piece of the hi 
remaining over the Middle Atlantic States Sat night through sun. A period 
of on shore/NE-E winds expected from Thursday night into Sat...with mainly dry 
and autumn-like conditions. Flow will turn to the southeast then S for 
late Sat into sun morng...then south-southwest Sun afternoon into Monday morng in 
advance of a cold front. Mainly dry weather continues Sat night through Sun 
night...before the cold front moves into the area and brings at 
least a slight chance of showers on Monday. 


Min temperatures will range through the 50s into the lower 60s Friday and Sat 
morngs...range from the middle 50s to middle 60s sun morng...and range 
through the 60s Monday morng. Maximum temperatures will be in the lower to middle 70s 
Friday...in the middle to upper 70s Sat...and range from the middle 70s to lower 
80s sun and Monday. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
low clouds (some IFR ivof ric) will dspt into a SC cloud deck between 
3-5k feet as a cold front crosses the area. Main aviation concern 
will be a wind shift to the north then NE behind the boundary later today. 
Front has little moisture to work with expect a dry frontal passage. Middle levels 
dry out after 00z so expect only high level moisture tonight. 


Outlook...NE flow & cloudy condtns with scattered showers possible across NE NC 
Wednesday in the vicinity of the front as it slowly pushes S. 


For your information...due to lower clouds coming in and issues with the sby ASOS...went 
ahead and appended "amd not sked" to end of sby taf. 


&& 


Marine... 
cold front crosses the waters today along with a wind shift to the 
north then NE by tonight. Don't expect Small Craft Advisory headlines today as surge 
behind this boundary prognosticated to be rather weak...but can't rule out a 
few gusts to 20 kts across the ches Bay this afternoon. 


Data mixed at this time as to when seas build to 5 feet as well as when swells 
from Edouard begin to impact the East Coast. Given low confidence... 
will hold off an any headlines with this package though it appears 
that sca's will likely be needed sometimes on Wednesday. 


An extended prd of NE flow will dominate the waters into the upcoming 
weekend...as high pressure builds to the north of the area and off the New 
England coast. Sca's will likely be needed through most of this prd 
along with seas at or above 5 feet. 


Will keep the rip current risk low for today although it may apprch 
moderate tonight as swells and seas from eduoard begin to increase. 
An extended period of at least moderate risk appears likely for the 
end of the week.
