NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1044 PM EDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds over the middle Atlantic region through Friday. 
A strong cold front crosses the area Saturday morning...ushering 
in much cooler and drier weather for the end of the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Thursday morning/... 
an upper trough continues to linger over New England this 
evening...with northwest flow over the middle-Atlantic on the upstream side 
of the trough axis. A weak impulse embedded within the northwest flow is 
producing a band of 8-10k feet ceilings from northern Virginia to S-central Virginia. A 
few isolated showers continue to persist...and the last few runs of the 
hrrr suggest that this activity could linger through the night. 
The middle-clouds should largely inhibit dense fog overnight. 
However...with lingering low-level moisture patchy fog remains 
possible...especially from S-central Virginia into interior NE NC. Lows 
should generally range from the middle 50s to low 60s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Thursday morning through Saturday/... 
high pressure builds into the region from New England through Friday. Carried 
over the patchy drizzle / fog Thursday morning across the Piedmont...otw becoming 
pt sunny. Highs m70s along the coast...u70s-l80s west of the Bay. 


Persistent forecast expeceted until frontal passage Friday night so more stratus/fog possible 
Friday morning across the Piedmont. Otw...pt cloudy. Lows m50s-l60s. 


Latest models continue to slow apprchg cdfrnt down with Friday looking 
dry under pt sunny skies. Again...kept morning fog over the Piedmont. 
Highs m70s coastal areas...around 80 west of the Bay. 


Frontal passage west-east across the forecast area aftr midnight Friday night...exiting off the 
coast before noon Saturday. Decent slug of moisture prognosticated ahead of it 
but with only marginal instability. Slowed probability of precipitation down with only chance 
evening probability of precipitation west of the Bay...then kept likely probability of precipitation aftr midnight. 
Kept slght chance thunder in at this time given the unfavorable time of frontal passage. 
Lows u50s-u60s. 


Morning probability of precipitation Saturday with skies becoming pt to mostly sunny in the 
afternoon. Tough call on temperatures as the strngst cold air advection holds off until Sat 
night. West (downsloping) winds along with increasing amts of sunshine 
help boost temperatures a degree or two warmer. Highs in the 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
long term period will feature mainly dry and seasonable conditions. 
For Sat ngt/sun...mid-level trough axis and associated surface cold front 
pushes farther offshore. Hi pressure then builds into the southeast U.S. By Sun 
afternoon with SW flow developing across the middle Atlantic. Expect a sunny 
sky with hi temperatures in the middle to upper 60s. Dry conditions continue 
into Monday with a broad upper-level trough over the east half of the Continental U.S. And 
surface hi pressure sliding offshore. Hi temperatures near normal...in the low to 
middle 70s. 


For Tue/Wed...a middle-level shortwave trough and weak surface frntal boundary 
will cross the middle Atlantic leading to a slight chance for a rain showers. 
Difficult to time this far out but either way not expecting a large 
amount of precipitation with this systm. Hi temperatures both days still in the low 
to middle 70s with lows ranging through the 50s. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Thursday through Monday/... 
weak frontal boundary washing out across southern portions of the 
local area as high pressure continues to ridge in from the north. 
Area of clouds will persist through 04z as a weak vorticity maximum swings 
over the area. With high pressure building in and clearing skies 
tonight...subsidence will combine with light onshore flow and 
dewpoints in the u50s/l60s to produce areas of fog. Stratus is 
possible overnight. VFR conditions will persist late morning 
through the rest of the 00z taf period with light north to north-northeast winds 
and scattered/broken middle-level clouds Thursday afternoon. 


Anticipate more fog and stratus again Thursday night. A cold 
front will cross the region Friday night into Saturday morning. 
Precipitation along with low ceilings/visibilities expected. 


&& 


Marine... 
Small Craft Advisory headlines continue for the northern-most coastal zone...north of 
Chincoteague through 10 PM EDT for 4-5 feet seas. NE winds around 15 
knots with gusts up to 20 knots have resulted in 5 feet seas at buoy 44009. 
The winds will diminish later this evening as the gradient 
relaxes...but persistent north-NE winds just north of the local waters 
will continue to push seas to 5 feet early this evening. Expect seas 
to diminish slightly by late this evening. Will re-evaluate through 
this eveng as there is a chance seas stay up all night there. With 
weak hi pressure over the NE/Middle Atlantic States into Thursday/Thursday night...northerly 
winds at or below 15 knots will continue. Seas again will be close to 5 feet (but 
mostly 3-4 ft) through this period. Next cold front approaches on 
Friday...with flow veering to the southeast late in the day. Seas may build to 
5-6 feet by Friday night and continuing into Sat. The cold front will 
cross the waters by Sat...with Small Craft Advisory conditions likely behind the front 
Sat night with strong cold air advection. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
tidal anomalies are expected to average around 1.0ft above normal 
tonight through Friday due to persistent onshore flow. This has 
the potential to push portions of the Middle Bay and tidal Potomac 
to minor flooding thresholds during high tide Thursday 
evening/night at Lewisetta...Bishops Head...and Cambridge. Water 
levels will again approach minor thresholds at the same locations Friday 
evening/night as the wind becomes southerly ahead of a cold 
front. Tidal anomalies should begin to decline Saturday as the 
wind shifts offshore behind the cold front.

Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...none.
