NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
822 am EDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will remain off the Canadian Maritimes through 
today...as a frontal boundary remains nearly stationary from the 
deep south to the coastal Carolinas. A cold front will approach from 
the west on Wednesday...and push across the region Thursday into 
Thursday night. High pressure will build over the area on Friday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
forecast area will remain in an unsettled/murky patter surface-aloft through 
tonight. Upper air low pressure will linger over the Gulf CST states while 
weak hi pressure over the NE U.S. Slides east and off the middle Atlantic CST. 
Deeper moist/scattered precipitation from the Carolinas and southeast states will try to 
spread north-northeast into the County Warning Area later this morng into early tonight. Highest 
chances (30-40%) will remain across the southern half of the region where 
the best instability/dynamic forcing is forecast. East-northeast winds will turn 
to the southeast or S during the day...and with at least partial sunshine 
expected...maximum temperatures today will be mainly in the middle to upper 80s 
inland...and 80 to 84 near the CST. Lows tonight in the upper 60s to 
lower 70s. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday/... 
by Wednesday...next trough aloft tracks through the Great Lakes and gradually 
amplifies into the NE/middle Atlantic regions Wednesday into Wednesday night...pushing 
the next surface cold front toward the forecast area. Low level flow becomes more south-southwest on 
Wednesday...resulting in better opportunity for partly to mostly sunny 
conditions and temperatures responding to near or slightly above seasonal 
normals. Will maintain probability of precipitation at 20-30% on Wednesday...esply for Wednesday 
aftn/eveng. Hi temperatures will be in the lower 90s inland...with 85 to 
90 near the CST. 


Adjusted probability of precipitation at bit for Wednesday night through Thursday...based on the latest 
model fcst's (esply the GFS/ecmwf) movement of the next cold 
front. Mainly have 30-40% probability of precipitation Wednesday night...with 50-60% probability of precipitation Thursday afternoon 
into Thursday night. Lows Wednesday night in the lower to middle 70s...with highs on 
Thursday ranging from the middle 80s to lower 90s. Some stronger storms could 
be possible Thursday afternoon into Thursday night across southern/southeast Virginia and NE NC. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
a cold front is forecast to move south of the local area Thursday 
night into Friday morning...before stalling over North Carolina later 
Friday. Because of the slow progress of the front will continue to 
carry solid chance probability of precipitation all areas Thursday night (highest se). By 
Friday...slight chance probability of precipitation will be limited to the southern 1/3rd of 
the forecast area nearest the front. Surface high pressure should begin to nudge 
into northern/central parts of the area during the day. The front 
should sag far enough south by Friday night to bring dry 
conditions all areas. However...will keep slight chance probability of precipitation across 
NE NC...pending agreement of next couple of model runs. Saturday 
is shaping up to be a dry day with high pressure in control. By 
next Sunday/Monday...the front lifts back north as a warm front 
and typical diurnal summertime convection will again be possible. 
Highs through the period will mainly be in the 80s...except some 
low 90s inland by sun/Mon. Lows in the 60s to low 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /13z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
onshore flow continues to maintain low level moisture and thus 
increased confidence in lowering ceilings between 07-12z. VFR 
conds in place across area terminals should diminish over the next 
2-3 hrs, west/ MVFR/ tempo IFR conds most or all of the sites. Precipitation 
is not expected to be a factor through Tuesday morning, though did 
include a vcsh at orf with some light returns just off southeast Virginia coast. 
Conds quickly improve by middle to late morning with VFR occasional MVFR 
prevailing most of the day. Convection is expected to be rather 
isolated and mainly SW of terminals. 


Outlook...little change expected for Wednesday except for a bit 
of an increase in shower and thunderstorm activity in the afternoon. 
Widespread showers and thunderstorms are forecast Thursday and 
Thursday night as a cold front approaches and then moves through 
the area. Friday and Saturday should be mostly dry/VFR, although a 
few showers and thunderstorms will be possible Friday afternoon...especially 
in the southeast. 


Note: observations from sby are not readily available...technicians 
are aware of the problem. Will append amend not schedule to ksby taf ufn. 


&& 


Marine... 
latest observation reflect a light easterly flow over the waters this 
morning, ahead of a quasi-stationary frontal boundary extending SW 
to NE along the southeast coast this morning. Meanwhile, surface high pressure 
remains off the New England coast. Weak frontal boundary offshore 
will slowly lift north and washout by midday, with winds becoming southeast 
this afternoon at or below 10 knots. Winds veer around to the SW tonight, ahead 
of next cold front approaching the waters from the west. Winds 
gradually ramp up as gradient tightens ahead of the front. S-SW 
winds increase to ~15 knots late Wednesday/Wednesday night, as model guidance once 
again has become a bit quicker with the frontal passage. Latest 
guidance indicates front will push across the waters from the northwest 
Thursday/Thursday afternoon. Winds veer to the north-NE late Thu/Friday. Given a 
rather weak cold air advection surge, Small Craft Advisory conditions are not expected at this time. Stayed 
close to nwps depiction for significant wave heights, with seas 2-3 
feet building to ~4ft Wednesday night/early Thursday before subsiding as 
winds become north-NE Friday. Waves will remain 1 to 2 feet.
