NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
805 PM EDT Sat Mar 28 2015 

high pressure builds into the region overnight and settles over 
the area Sunday. A weak cold front will move across the region 
later Sunday night into early Monday...with high pressure 
returning Monday afternoon and Tuesday. 


Near term /through Sunday/... 
skies are still expected to clear this evening from SW-NE...with 
most of the area becoming clear aside from a potential band of SC 
off the Bay. Cold high pressure builds in from the northwest and winds 
gradually decrease. With dewpoints dropping into the single digits 
and teens...temperatures will fall off rapidly with sunset 
especially as clouds begin to decrease. Have dropped temperatures by a 
degree or so with Sunday morning lows expected to range from the 
low to middle 20s...with upper 20s along the immediate coasts of southeast 
Virginia/NE NC. Current forecast lows are not records...but will be 
close depending on how much decoupling and clearing occurs. Record 
values are listed below in the climate section for reference. 


Short term /Sunday night through Tuesday night/... 
surface high pressure will move across the region Sunday. This 
will result in dry...sunny...and cool conditions with a light northwest 
wind becoming SW by afternoon. Limited mixing will only allow high 
temperatures to reach the middle/upper 40s along the coast...to the 
low 50s over interior Virginia/NE NC. Have dropped high by a degree or 
two based on the guidance...but expect a good deal of sunshine 
with some high clouds possibly pushing in from the northwest late in the 

An upper level trough and weak surface cold front cross the region 
late Sunday night into early Monday morning. Expect increasing 
clouds Sunday night along with a chance for rain. With the low- 
level airmass starting out so fry and return southerly flow 
limited...so there is only a low probability for -shra (~20-30%) 
with rain accumulations of only a few hundredths. Many areas will 
likely only see a trace of that much. The boundary drops S of the 
region early Monday with deep layered west-southwest flow developing Monday. 
Mostly cloudy conditions early should give way to a partly to 
mostly sunny sky by afternoon. Improved mixing and more sun will 
result in highs ranging from the low/middle 60s east...to middle/upper 60s 
west. This will be after morning lows in the middle 30s to low 40s. 
This trend will continue into Wednesday as high pressure moves 
directly across the region. Skies will remain mostly sunny most of 
the day with highs remaining near 60 over Eastern Shore and along 
the immediate coast and middle to upper 60s inland. 


Long term /Wednesday through Saturday/... 
better agreement in medium range guidance with respect to handling 
split flow compared to 24 hours ago. To begin the extended...good 
model consensus now with a northern stream wave dropping into the northern middle- 
Atlantic region late Tuesday night. Associated surface low prognosticated to track 
across northern Virginia/Maryland Tuesday night with a weak cold front sweeping across 
the region early Wednesday morning. Best moisture/lift will be north of 
the local area...but will introduce slight chance-low end chance 
probability of precipitation across the NE zones late Tuesday night closest to best 
moisture/lift. Surface low and cold front push well offshore Wednesday as surface 
high pressure centers over the region. Modest cold air advection and mostly sunny 
skies will result in temperatures in the low-middle 60s inland and middle-upper 
50s Eastern Shore and coastal areas. High pressure pushes offshore Wednesday 
night-Thursday as a southern stream wave lifts from the Southern Plains into the 
Tennessee Valley. Moisture return expected thanks to increasing S-southeast flow. 
28/12z European model (ecmwf) quicker with bringing precipitation into the region Thursday 
afternoon. Have dropped probability of precipitation Thursday afternoon...but kept slight 
chance probability of precipitation across the Piedmont. South-southwest flow will help moderate temperatures 
into the upper 60s to around 70 inland to low-middle 60s coastal areas 
Thursday. Expect clouds to increase Thursday afternoon. 
Thereafter...chance for precipitation ramp up Thursday night-Friday as the southern 
stream wave lifts over the region. Northern stream wave over the upper 
Midwest also prognosticated to flatten and track across the Great Lakes 
region late Thursday-Thursday night. Associated occluded surface low locates 
over southeastern Canada Thursday night-Friday morning...with an attendant cold 
front crossing the region during the Friday-Sat timeframe. Spatial and 
timing differences exist...but will carry chance probability of precipitation through Sat 
morning. Slight warmer Friday with highs in the low-middle 70s inland and 
low-middle 60s coastal areas. 


Aviation /00z Sunday through Thursday/... 
VFR conditions expected through the 00z taf period. Deep upper 
trough will slide off the coast tonight with high pressure 
building over the region Sunday. Few cumulus due to cold air at around 
6k feet. This cloud layer should clear after sunset as surface 
heating ends. Northwest winds will diminish slightly overnight with some 
increase in the winds once again during the day Sunday. 

Outlook...the aforementioned high will move to the south Sunday 
night as a weak cold front crosses the area early Monday. There 
will be slight to low chance for showers early Monday. High pressure 
builds back into the area early next week. A chance for showers 
returns Thursday. 


latest surface analysis reveals low pressure lifting well off the middle- 
Atlantic coast this afternoon with high pressure centered over the 
Midwest. Ongoing cold air advection continues to produce strong northwest winds of 15-25 
knots over the water. Waves average 2-4 feet and seas 4-6 feet. Small Craft Advisory conditions 
persist through the night thanks to the pressure gradient and cold air advection. 
Waves remain 2-4 feet and seas 4-6 feet. High pressure builds SW of the 
water early Friday...with northwest winds diminishing at or below 15 knots by middle 
morning. Seas subside by early afternoon. High pressure builds south 
of the water Sun afternoon...with flow becoming southerly at or below 10 knots late 
sun. The next cold front approaches from the west Monday 
night...crossing the water late Monday-early Monday night. Prefrontal southerly 
surge expected Sun night...with speeds increasing to 15 knots in the 
Bay and 20 knots in the coastal waters. Models indicate Small Craft Advisory 
conditions...but based on warm air advection and cold water...expect a sharp low 
level inversion to prevent strongest winds from mixing to the 
water. Have capped speeds below Small Craft Advisory at this time. Southerly fetch may push seas 
to 5 feet in the northern coastal waters Monday morning. Southwesterly flow returns 
Monday night- Tuesday. Low pressure tracks across the middle-Atlantic 
region late Tuesday with another front crossing the water early Wednesday 
night. Winds stay at or below 15 knots. High pressure returns weds-thurs.
