NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
101 am EST sun Nov 29 2015 

a cold front sags south through the middle Atlantic region late 
tonight through Sunday...stalling across the Carolinas Sunday 
night into early next week. The next cold front is expected to 
cross the region on Wednesday. 


Near term /until 6 am this morning/... 
another mild/quiet evening across forecast area. Cold front has drawn closer to the forecast area 
past 24 hours...now found from near the PA-Maryland border to the central Ohio Valley 
to the western Gulf of mex. Scattered -r has been trying to inch closer over 
the mountains this evening and will slowly push into far northwest-north counties the 
rest of tonight. Otherwise...mostly cloudy cntrl/N...partly S. Low temperatures 
mainly from 50-55f. 


Short term /6 am this morning through Tuesday/... 
the cold front sags southward into lower Maryland by Sunday morning...then 
into central Virginia by early afternoon and NC middle afternoon. The front 
will stall over the Carolinas Sun night into early next week as 
the parent high remains well to north over eastern Canada. Rain is 
not expected to begin across far northwest-north counties and lower Maryland 
until the early morning hours on sun. As the front drops through 
the area...rainfall (light and scattered in nature in the morning) 
will slowly spread southward and become a little more widespread Sun 
afternoon. Scattered light rain may not push into southeast Virginia 
until late Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening. 

A better chance for more widespread rain in expected late Sunday 
night into Monday as better dynamics aloft enhance precipitation 
generation. Meanwhile...high pressure slides across southeast Canada into 
northern New England during this timeframe extending down into the Middle 
Atlantic States. This will create a cold air wedge on the leeside 
of the Appalachians into central Virginia reinforcing the seasonably cool 
air. Rain chances will continue into Monday/Monday night...but models 
have backed off on the amount of overrunning with the cooler wedge 
in place. Best probability of precipitation remain over the southern half of the forecast 
area where isentropic lift is expected. Pop forecasts for this 
period will likely chance as the models have been somewhat 
inconsistent handling moisture Monday afternoon into Tuesday. 

Overall quantitative precipitation forecast amounts remain fairly light (0.10 inches or less in 
any given 6 hour period) with forecast total rainfall averaging 
0.30-0.40 inches mainly across the south. Temperatures will be 
highly variable on sun as the front drops through the area. 
Currently anticipating highs in the middle- upper 50s north to middle- 
upper 60s south through temperatures will fall in the late afternoon 
across portions of the area. Lows Sun night in the 40s 
inland/lower 50s far southeast Virginia and NE NC. Effects of the cad 
wedge will be felt on Monday with highs in the middle-upper 40s 
along/west of Interstate 95 and in the 50s eastward. Temperatures likely to 
hold nearly steady Monday night. Lows in the 40s inland/lower 50s 
along the coast. 

Rain chances increased again on Tuesday as the shallow cad 
remains in place and low pressure develops along the stalled 
front just off the coast. The cad does look to slowly erode 
Tuesday allowing high inland to get into the lower to middle 50s with 
lower 60s closer to the coast and Bay. 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
going with a blend of the 12z GFS/European model (ecmwf) for the extended period. 
Cold front will approach from the west Tuesday night...then cross the region 
and move off the CST Wednesday into Wednesday night. Will have hi chance to likely 
probability of precipitation for rain Tuesday night into early Wednesday afternoon...then decreasing probability of precipitation 
from west to east later Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday eveng. Both the latest GFS and 
European model (ecmwf) now indicate dry weather for later Wednesday night through Sat...as a large 
area of hi pressure builds eastward and eventually over the area from the 
plains and Midwest. Lows in the upper 40s to middle 50s Wednesday morng...in 
the middle 30s to middle 40s Thursday morng...and in the lower 30s to lower 40s 
Friday and Sat morngs. Highs in the upper 50s to middle 60s Wednesday...and 
mainly in the lower to middle 50s Thursday...Friday and Sat. 


Aviation /06z Sunday through Thursday/... 
03z update...phf has fog with variable visibility values. The taf 
has tempo group for 2 miles until 07z. It is believed that this fog 
is very shallow and concentrating in the lowest spots of the 
Airport grounds. 

01z update...removed tempo IFR at ecg due to current trends. MVFR 
fog remains in the forecast from 04-08z. 

Previous discussion... 
calm to light southwest winds off of a retreating high pressure 
system prevailed over the area early Saturday evening. 

Broken to overcast middle and high level clouds are expected to prevent the 
redevelopment of ground fog that took place the last three nights. 
Included visibility restriction at ecg where less wind and clouds may 
allow some fog...especially early in the evening. Included MVFR 02- 
08z with a couple of hours of tempo IFR. NAM MOS has IFR for most of 
the overnight hours but this appears overdone. 

A cold front extends from central New Jersey across northern 
Maryland to southern Ohio. This front will drift to the south 
through Sunday. Rain is developing along and to the north of the 
front and has developed over northeast Kentucky...northern West 
Virginia and southern Pennsylvania. Confidence for the start time 
of rain is low but followed close to our pop forecast and is 
earlier than the lav MOS and later than the NAM. Rain begins in 
the tafs at 10z for sby...14z for ric and 21z for phf. Ceilings 
lower through the taf period and especially as precipitation develops. 
There is some indication that rain may taper off before 00z at ric 
and sby which may result in fine tuning later. 

Outlook...periods of rain and IFR conditions can be expected through 
Wednesday with onshore NE winds at the surface and a moist west to 
southwest flow aloft. As high pressure builds south into the Middle 
Atlantic States...a cold air wedge will develop along the east side 
of the Appalachians...promoting deterioration of aviation 
conditions...especially at ric. 

A cold front sweeps off the coast Wednesday bringing in drier air 
and VFR conditions to the area beginning Wednesday night and 


10 PM update...removed the Small Craft Advisory for the Virginia coastal waters S of Cape 
Charles as seas have subsided to 4 feet or less. The Small Craft Advisory for the NC 
waters north of Currituck Beach Light remains in effect until 7 am 

Previous discussion... 
hi pressure will weaken and slide to the south-southeast of the area tonight...as a 
cold front sags into extreme northern areas by sun morng. The front will 
sink down through the region during sun...with winds becoming north-northeast 5 
to 15 knots all areas. By Monday morng...hi pressure will build from southeast Canada 
into New England...then slides off the CST by Monday eveng. This will 
result in stronger north-northeast winds of 10 to 20 knots...and seas bldng back 
to 5-6 feet. Sca's will be likely again starting late Sun night or 
early Monday morng at least for the mouth of the ches Bay and the 
coastal waters. The wedging hi retreats on Tuesday...as strong low pressure 
lifts into Wisconsin and pushes a cold front eastward into the mountains 
that front will then approach Tuesday night...then move across the area 
and off the CST Wednesday into Wednesday night. Strong northwest or north winds then 
expected Wednesday night through Thursday...as cool hi pressure builds in behind the 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 7 am EST this morning for anz658.
