NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
346 am EST sun Dec 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure moves across the area today...then off the coast tonight. 
Low pressure moves northeast out of the Gulf of Mexico and up along 
the Carolina coast Monday into Tuesday. A strong cold front will cross 
the area Wednesday night. High pressure returns by Christmas day. 


&& 


Near term /today/... 
high pressure moves across the area today with a surface trough located across 
the southern Appalachians. Plnty of middle/high level moisture seen on tsctns for 
the day to start out mostly cloudy to cloudy. Clouds thin out a bit this 
afternoon...spclly northern half of forecast area. Anthr below normal day as clouds hold temperatures 
in the l-m40s. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Tuesday/... 
dry this evening. Clouds quickly thicken S-north late evening and Erly 
morning in response to low prs moving NE from gom. Tricky part of forecast 
will be how fast precipitation overspreads the forecast area and what form p-type will 
be over the Piedmont as in-situ wedge develops. Despite some timing 
diffferences latest models in gnrl agreement that precipitation overspreads the 
area S-north between 06z-12z. Ll thicknesses warm enough for liquid precipitation east of 
i95 but remain marginal west of i95. BUFKIT soundings continue to show a narrow 
layer of below freezing surface temperatures through 15z or so across the Piedmont. 
Thnk p-type will start off as a few hours of sleet west of i95 and north of 
rt 460 late tonight due to evap cooling with temperatures near freezing. 
May even see some wet snowflakes over counties northwest of ric...but not 
sgnfcnt enough to mention in forecast at this time. Quantitative precipitation forecast looks minimal through 
12z...so about the only action needed at this point is a mention in 
severe weather potential statement. Rain southern counties. Min temperatures may likely occur in the evening with 
steady readings aftr midnite. Lows u20s-m30s. 


Wedge begins to weaken Monday morning as high prs moves into eastern Canada. 
The nrmlly colder counties will likely stay near 32 degrees through 15z 
or so as the precipitation overpsreads the entire forecast area. Expect a quick transition 
over to all rain most areas just aftr 12z expect for Louisa/Fluvanna/ 
western Goochland/northern Cumberland counties where a period of mixed sleet/fz 
rain should continue through 15z before temperatures inch above 32. These are the areas 
where an advisory may be needed Monday morning for minimal impact as temperatures 
hover around 32. Areas from Caroline/northern half of Northern Neck counties on east 
to Dorchester/Wicomico Maryland may start off as a rain/sleet mix at then 
quickly go over to rain. Rain then becomes widespread Monday afternoon as the 
bulk of lift/moisture tracks across the forecast area. A rather cold rain as temperatures 
struggle to get out of the 30s Piedmont...40-45 east toward the Eastern 
Shore & southeastern ches Bay... m40s-l50s southeastern VA/NC. 


Low pressure prognosticated to lift NE along the Carolina coast Monday night 
with stdyst precipitation ending SW-NE by 06z. Soundings indctg enough moisture for light 
rain / drizzle through the ovrnite hours. Temperatures steady in the m30s northwest to m40s 
southeast. Quantitative precipitation forecast 1/4 to 1/2 in. 


Middle-level ridging briefly builds into the region Tuesday. However... 
moist easterly flow will prevail. Kept low chance (30%) probability of precipitation through the 
day althrough some drizzle may linger through the morning hours. Big 
tmp differences seen in MOS data where NAM is some 5-10 degrees 
colder than the GFS. Given models maintain an Erly surface flow...will 
split the difference for now and go with highs from the M-u40s over 
the Piedmont to M-u50s coastal areas. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
a coastal low just off the middle Atlantic coast continue to wash out 
Tuesday night as a warm front starts to lift north through the region. 
Meanwhile...a very strong and vigorous surface low deepens over the 
Ohio/Tennessee valleys and pushes a strong cold front toward the area. Initial 
push of stratiform precipitation associated with the warm front Tuesday 
night will likely give way to more showery precipitation as the middle 
Atlantic region becomes warm-sectored ahead of the approaching cold 
front. The surface pressure gradient tightens significantly on Wednesday as 
the parent low deepens over the Great Lakes and a strong jet streak 
(90-150 kt) noses into the region from the south-southwest. Highs should range 
from 60-65 northwest and Maryland/Virginia lower Eastern Shore to 65-69 from roughly 
Richmond to southeast Virginia/NE NC. In addition to dewpoints approaching 60 
degrees across the southeastern half of the County Warning Area...a Theta-E ridge is 
expected to surge northward along the southeast Wednesday morning into the southern middle 
Atlantic coast by Wednesday aftn/evening. The combination of these 
features/convective parameters means that a slight chance for 
thunderstorms has been added to the forecast across southeast Virginia and NE NC 
during the afternoon/early evening hours. The front exits the region late 
Wednesday night and precipitation will taper off from west to east...coming to an 
end early Thursday morning. 


The upper trough associated with the Great Lakes surface low swings 
through the region late Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon. Upper level 
instability and abundant surface moisture from recent precipitation 
should keep scattered-broken cumulus over the area through the day on Thursday. 
Cold air advection occurring behind the cold front and a continued tight surface 
pressure gradient will result in gusty west-southwest winds of 20-25mph with 
gusts around 35mph...and should be fairly uniform across the region. 
The gusty winds should decouple by Thursday evening. Overall conditions 
Friday through the weekend should be dry. A Lee trough forms across the 
area on Friday and a weak cad wedge develops. The pressure gradient 
relaxes briefly Friday/Friday night as high pressure building over the southeast 
states extends up into the middle Atlantic region. Meanwhile...a broad 
upper trough pushes a dry cold front across the region on Sat which 
will usher much colder 850mb temperatures over the area (-5 to -15c). Cold air advection 
and a re-tightening of the surface pressure gradient will bring a return 
to breezy SW winds on Sat and breezy northwest winds on sun behind the next 
cold frontal passage. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Sunday through Thursday/... 
VFR conditions and light winds expected to continue through the 
06z taf period. Broken-overcast clouds between 8-10k feet will slowly erode 
through late morning. 


Outlook...a series of low pressure systems and complex frontal 
boundaries will bring chances for rain and periods of low ceilings 
and visibilities Monday through Wednesday. A cold front passes 
through Wednesday night with VFR conds and dry weather Thursday. 


&& 


Marine... 
north-NE winds at or below 10 knots will prevail today with high pressure in place. 
Winds turn more easterly tonight and increase to 10-15 knots most areas 
as low pressure organizing off the southeast coast slowly pushes 
north. The surface low continues to move northeast of the NC coast on 
Monday...but weakens by late Monday/Monday night. Winds will generally 
remain east-NE at or below 15 knots all waters during this time...but tending to 
become more northerly at or below 10 knots by early Tuesday morning. Latest 
guidance indicates potential for seas to build to around 5 feet out 20 
nm late Monday/Monday evening across the southern coastal waters. Confidence 
not high enough to issue a 3rd period Small Craft Advisory at this time. 


Light northwest winds expected Tuesday as high pressure remains in place over 
the mid-Atlantic...and the next low pressure system organizes over 
the deep south. Winds turn east-southeast Tuesday night and gradually begin to 
increase as a warm front lifts north through the area. A strong 
cold front approaches the waters from the west on Wednesday with 
winds becoming southerly and increasing to Small Craft Advisory thresholds (save the 
rivers). The front quickly sweeps through the area Wednesday night and 
offshore early Thursday. Winds remain above Small Craft Advisory levels through late 
Thursday while becoming SW then west. High pressure returns Thursday night 
into the start of next weekend for improved conditions. Seas will 
generally build to 5-7 feet on Wednesday before subsiding again late Thursday. 
Waves will reach 4 feet on the ches Bay.
