Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
655 am EDT Sat Aug 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds into the area from the west today. A weak 
frontal boundary slides offshore late Saturday into Saturday 
night...before high pressure returns to start next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest weather analysis features weak surface cold front in place from near 
the coastal Carolinas into the deep south...with ~1018mb surface high 
pressure centered from the central/southern Appalachians back into 
the middle MS River Valley. Aloft, early morning water vapor imagery and 
subjective analysis depict an upper level trough centered over 
Hudson Bay and extending south into the Great Lakes region into 
the Ohio Valley/northern mid-Atlantic. 


Despite the upper-level troughing in place over the eastern conus, 
00z/01 radiosonde observation analysis indicates precipitable water values ~1 S.D. Below normal 
(0.82" wal, 0.92 iad, 0.67" rnk, 0.76" gso) across the region. 
This lack of low level moisture west/surface hi pressure to the west should allow 
for another dry day...albeit very warm. Local thickness tools are 
in general agreement with MOS guidance with respect to highs, depicting maxima 
in the low to middle 90s under a sunny to mostly sunny sky. 


Weak surface boundary/trough to the south slides offshore of the 
southeast coast tonight, as the surface hi pressure center builds in 
from the west. Lows Sat night again in the middle 60s to lower 70s. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday/... 
upper trough remains in place over Hudson Bay. This will allow 
for dry conditions to persist for Sunday and Monday for most of 
the area west/similar temperatures with the surface hi in place over the area. 
Did include a 20% chance of a thunderstorm on Sunday, but only over NE NC 
with some seabreeze effects acting as a focus for isolated thunderstorms and rain. 
Another small chance for thunderstorms and rain Monday, as shortwaves on the periphery 
of the upper low drop from the Ohio Valley into the region. Precipitable water values 
remain on the low side, at or just below seasonal normal. Thus, 
will keep pop in slight chance range at most for now. 


Temperatures also ramp up on Monday on S/SW return flow setup. 
Expect highs in the middle 90s with heat indices peaking at or above 100 
degrees. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
pattern begins with with a middle/upper level ridge centered over the 
SW/southern Continental U.S. And an upper level low near georgian/Hudson Bay Canada. 
Latest GFS/European model (ecmwf) are into improved agreement compared to 
earlier runs with this overall setup through the middle of next 
week. This translates into hot weather Tuesday/Wednesday with 800 mb temperatures rising 
to 19-21 c across the area. Will forecast highs in the middle 90s over 
much of the area...a little cooler (highs upper 80s to lower 90s) 
closer to the coast due to some potential for afternoon winds shifting 
more to the se/onshore. Also a little cooler over the far north as 
surface front will not be that far north of the region and could lead to 
more afternoon clouds and somewhat higher chances for precipitation. Dew points are 
forecast by models to mix out into the upper 50s/low 60s west of I- 
95 Tue/Wed...generally stayed a little higher than this...lower to middle 60s 
west to lower 70s east. For now this yields heat indices peaking 
around 100 f or a tad higher but remaining below 105 f advsy 
thresholds. As for probability of precipitation Tue/Wed...models show very little in the way 
of deep forcing/moisture but given fairly low 500 mb heights and hot low 
levels will maintain at least a 20% pop both days in the 
afternoon/evening timeframe (up to 30% Wednesday across the north). 


By Thu/Fri...upper ridging amplifies across the western Continental U.S. Gradually 
carving out a deeper trough over the eastern Continental U.S.. this should be 
enough to eventually drive the cold front south into the middle 
Atlantic/Carolinas Thursday into Friday (though hard to say if the front clears 
the area on fri). Raised probability of precipitation to 40% north and 30% S Thursday afternoon/Thursday 
night...with a 20-30% pop for Friday. Highs trend down into the 
middle/upper 80s north to the lower 90s S on Thursday...and into the 80s all areas 
on Friday. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
a weak trough/frontal boundary will linger along the coast today... 
especially across NE NC. Overall conditions will be VFR with light 
and variable winds through this morning...becoming southerly with speeds 
at or below 10kt by this afternoon with scattered cumulus around 5 kft above ground level developing 
at all taf sites. Kecg and ksby may experience broken ceilings in the 
afternoon/evening as the weak trough gets pushed offshore. Skies 
gradually clear overnight tonight as high pressure builds into 
the middle Atlantic region through Sunday. Another trough crosses the 
area on Monday...followed by more high pressure. 


&& 


Marine... 
S-SW winds this morning turn back to the south-southeast by this afternoon with 
speeds at or below 15 knots. Generally light winds and good boating conditions 
prevail throughout the weekend with seabreezes developing each 
afternoon. Expect light west winds in the morning...turning to the east/southeast 
at around 10 knots in the late aftn/evening. Waves average 1-2 feet in 
the Bay with seas 2-3 feet. Pressure gradient increases Monday/Monday night 
with southerly winds increasing into the 15-20 knots range (possibly to 
marginal Small Craft Advisory conds) with waves 2-3 feet and seas 3-5 feet. High 
pressure returns to the region Tuesday through Wednesday with 
S-SW winds at or below 15 knots and waves 1-2 feet/seas 2-4 feet.
