NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1048 am EDT Friday may 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure over the northeast states will gradually slide off 
the coast this afternoon through tonight and Saturday. A slow 
moving cold front will enter the local area from the northwest 
late Sunday...and stall across the region on Monday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
current analysis indicates a surface cold front extending SW into the 
northern middle Atlantic region from low pressure off the New England 
coast. WV satellite shows shortwave energy trailing the surface low 
tracking east off the coast of Maine. Weak upper ridge is still in 
place over the local area...but the presence of the front still 
enabling a few showers to persist across the lower Eastern Shore just to 
the north of Dorchester Maryland. 


For the rest of today...expect partly to mostly sunny sky. In general 
there is a slight drop in dewpoints across the forecast area as hi pressure just 
offshore begins to slightly build westward during the day. Focus of 
higher probability of precipitation (20-30%) becomes confined to far northwest portion of forecast area 
with probability of precipitation at or below 15% elsewhere. Slightly cooler than yesterday with 
highs in middle-upper 80s well inland...to the middle 70s to lower 80s 
at the coast. Becoming mostly clear tonight with lows in the 60s 
to around 70 f and any remaining convection over the Piedmont 
should wane prior to midnight. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday/... 
our period of Summer-like weather to continue through the weekend. By Sat...cold front 
pushes southeast through the Ohio Valley...remaining far enough away for any 
significant impact on the weather here. Will keep conds warm with skies 
averaging mostly sunny into the early afternoon...partly cloudy in the 
middle/late afternoon. Will keep probability of precipitation at only 10%...with weak upper 
ridging in place. 


Cold front from the northwest continues to slowly approach sun. Latest GFS is fastest 
to bring the front into the area...while the NAM/European model (ecmwf) and GFS 
ensemble mean is slower. Much of the day should be dry and partly 
to mostly sunny. Probability of precipitation increase to 40-50% across far north-northwest portions of 
the forecast area for the late afternoon/evening hours...tapering to 10% for souther 1/2 
of County Warning Area. The bulk of precipitation expected to be along and behind the fnt (and 
that is not likely until lt sun). 


Hi temperatures Sat and sun from the u80s to around 90f inland...70s to l80s 
at the CST. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
middle/upper ridging persists over the middle Atlantic and southeast 
coasts Sunday night and Monday...with a trough over the 
Mississippi Valley. Latest 00z/29 GFS indicates the trough closes 
off in vicinity of the Gulf Coast Monday night and Tuesday while 
the ecwmf has a more progressive trough...with the ridge 
retrograding west. Meanwhile...a trough will dig across the northeast 
Monday through Tuesday...which will allow for a surface cold front 
to drop into the region Monday. The GFS remains more aggressive 
with the southward movement of the front...while the European model (ecmwf) is 
slower to push the surface boundary through the area on Tuesday. 
Surface high pressure over New England Wednesday will nudge into 
the region by Thursday...as middle/upper ridging returns as the 
trough moves offshore. Probability of precipitation average 40-60% Sunday night through 
Monday night with the surface cold front over the middle 
Atlantic...then tapering off Tuesday afternoon and evening as the 
high builds in from the north-northeast. Drier conditions are expected by 
Wednesday and Thursday with high pressure building into the 
region. Warm and humid conditions continue Monday with highs 
ranging from the middle 70s north...to low 80s S. Cooler Tuesday and 
Wednesday behind the front with onshore flow. Currently will 
forecast highs ranging from the low 70s north to near 80 S...but these 
values could be cooler depending on clouds and precipitation. Temperatures 
should begin to increase Thursday. Lows should average through the 
60s. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Friday through Tuesday/... 
high pressure remains over the western Atlantic this morning. Calm- 
light S wind at or below 5 knots will persist through middle morning. Middle level 
moisture will result in a few-scattered deck around 5k feet above ground level across southeast 
Virginia/NE NC...where isolated showers developed earlier this morning. 


For today...a southeast wind of 5-10 knots prevails as high pressure remains 
well offshore. Scattered afternoon cumulus with decks 4-5k feet above ground level expected. 
Isolated to widely scattered showers/thunderstorms expected over 
the Piedmont into central Virginia...but taf sites expected to remain dry. 


Upper/surface high pressure remains over the region into the weekend. 
Dry conditions are expected to prevail...but there is a chance for 
diurnally driven showers/thunderstorms across the Piedmont Friday- 
Sat. Better chances for precipitation expected sun-Monday as a cold front 
reaches...and then stalls over the region. 


&& 


Marine... 
latest observation over the water reflect southerly winds at or below 10 knots. Waves 1-2 feet 
and seas 2-3 feet. High pressure remains over the western Atlantic through 
the weekend. The result will be continued sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions. A southeasterly 
wind averages 10-15 knots today. Gradient strengthens tonight into 
Saturday as a cold front moves into the Great Lakes region. Southeasterly 
winds increase to a solid 15 knots...pushing seas to 2-3 feet Sat and 3-4 
feet Sat night. Waves build to 2-3 feet. Flow becomes southerly 10-15 knots 
sun...before the flow weakens Sun night into Monday as the cold 
front settles into the region. High pressure builds in from the NE 
Monday night through Wednesday. Expect increasing NE flow and building 
seas/waves with onshore flow.
