NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1003 PM EDT Sat Apr 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
a warm front lifts north from the Carolinas through tonight as 
low pressure approaches from the west. The low pushes off the 
coast on Sunday. High pressure slowly rebuilds over the area from 
the west early next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 8 am Sunday morning/... 
overrunning precipitation continues to lift north across Virginia and Maryland 
tonight as surface front remains stalled over southern NC. The band of rain 
has been slowly lifting east-northeast this evening and is beginning to taper 
off across central Virginia. Should see this band exit off the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia 
coast around 6z. The next shortwave now over western Kentucky will slide 
east overnight and push through southern Virginia between 6z and 12z. This 
wave may have enough instability aloft to have a few rumbles of 
thunder embedded with the showers. Have adjusted probability of precipitation to try and 
match the precipitation movement. 


For temperatures...have lowered readings across the region as the 
nearly/nerly flow continues to push cooler air southward and with 
the rain adding to enhance the cooling. With the frontal boundary 
stalled over the Carolinas...expect readings to remain in the 40s 
overnight. 


Previous discussion... 
current analysis places weak surface high pressure 
along/off the Delaware/MD/ern Virginia coast...with surface low pressure centered 
over southeast MO. Aloft...and upper low is centered off the New England 
coast...with another upper trough over central Illinois. Weak upper 
ridge is situated along the Appalachians. Dreary cool day prevails 
with mainly light rain over the region thus far and temperatures 
in the upper 40s to lower 50s for most locations. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts have 
generally been between 0.10" and 0.20" since this morning over central 
and eastern Virginia where the axis of "heaviest" rain has occurred. Farther 
north drier air in low levels has kept precipitation from a trace to a 
few hundredths...and precipitation coverage over the far south has been 
more limited. 


For this evening/tonight...upper low over Illinois looks to gradually 
become engulfed by the upper low off the New England coast...which 
will help lead to surface low development off the NC coast after 
midnight. Will maintain 70-90% probability of precipitation into early evening across much 
of the area...shifting to the coast and Eastern Shore through late 
evening hours. Does look like coverage of rain diminishes later this 
evening into the early am hours over much of the County Warning Area while the 
coastal surface low takes time to develop (and upstream surface low 
weakens over ky). Have then ramped probability of precipitation back to likely/Cat after 
08z as next shortwave and better lift return. Still not 
anticipating heavy rain...generally quantitative precipitation forecast amounts overnight through 
Sunday will average 0.25" to 0.50". Temperatures drop off only slightly for 
lows tonight...lows range from around 40 f/lower 40s in Maryland Eastern 
Shore and Northern Neck (where surface dew points are initially lower and 
column cooling will prevail)...to the upper 40s over the south. 


On Sunday...low level wedge to remain in place over the forecast area as onshore 
winds...clouds and periods of rain continuing through Sun morning...shifting to 
the southeast into Sun afternoon. Probability of precipitation to begin lowering sun after from north-northwest to southeast as 
winds shift to north as low pressure departs CST. Hi temperatures sun in the 
M/u50s S to around 60 f north (stayed below mos). 


&& 


Short term /8 am Sunday morning through Tuesday/... 
rain to end across southeast Virginia/NE NC sun evening. Partial clearing expected Sun night over 
the forecast area. Broad upper level low pressure extending from Canadian Maritimes to 
southeast lakes will remain in place through Monday. Short wave diving southeast through the 
mdatlc states on Monday brings vrb clouds and low probability of precipitation - especially north and east 
locations (alg west/ continued cool conds). Low temperatures Sun night in the 
l/m40s. Hi temperatures Monday in the l60s NE to the middle 60s elsewhere. 
Becoming mostly clear Monday night...and slightly warmer on Tuesday with 
increasing amts of sun...highs mainly into the middle to upper 60s. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
the period begins with with surface high pressure in place 
allowing for dry weather through midday Wednesday. Beyond then...a low 
confidence forecast (weighted toward the ecmwf) brings low pressure 
up the southeast coast late Wednesday/Wednesday night...then deepens the low off the 
obx on Thursday before quickly shoving it well out to sea Thursday 
night. Based on this solution...will bring slight chance probability of precipitation (20%) 
into southern areas Wednesday...then slight chance probability of precipitation north and chance probability of precipitation 
(30-40%) across the south Wednesday night. Will expand chance probability of precipitation (30-50%) 
across the entire forecast area on Thursday (highest far se)...before dwindling 
rain chances from west to east Thursday night as the low pulls away. 
Dry weather then returns Friday into next weekend as high pressure 
returns. Lows generally in the 40s to low 50s. Highs mainly in the 
60s Wed/Thu...except upper 50s immediate coast Eastern Shore. Highs 
then warm into the middle/upper 60s at the coast to middle 70s inland by 
next Saturday. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Sunday through Thursday/... 
pockets of light/moderate rain are occurring across the area as overrunning 
develops across southern portions of the Middle Atlantic States. 
MVFR/IFR conditions will persist overnight and are expected to 
last through Sun morning. Shortwave energy over Kentucky will swing 
through Virginia/NC overnight...this will help produce heavy showers and 
possibly an isolated thunderstorms Sunday morning. 


Conds improve slowly from north to S on Sunday as a cold front and 
associated low pressure slide off to the S/se. 


Outlook...dry and VFR conditions are expected by Sunday evening 
which continue through early Wednesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
surface high pressure moves well offshore this afternoon/evening with 
light S-southeast winds gradually backing around to the east this evening. 
Low pressure quickly skirts out to sea off the NC coast tonight 
which will bring an increase in winds to 10-15 knots north and 15-20 knots 
south through midday Sunday while the wind direction also backs more 
to the NE-N. A period of Small Craft Advisory winds is expected over the lower ches 
Bay overnight through midday Sunday...and also across the Currituck 
Sound from late Sun morning through sun evening. Waves build to 3 feet across 
the Lower Bay. NE winds will also build seas to around 5 feet along 
the northern obx with some gusts to 25 knots as well. Therefore...an 
Small Craft Advisory for anz658 has been issued for a brief time sun aftn/eve. 
Winds/seas diminish below Small Craft Advisory levels Sun night...before possibly 
ramping back up again on Monday/Tuesday with low pressure off the 
New England coast. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory from 4 PM Sunday to 1 am EDT Monday for 
anz658. 
Small Craft Advisory from 1 am to 1 PM EDT Sunday for anz632- 
634. 
Small Craft Advisory from 10 am to 10 PM EDT Sunday for anz633.
