NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
301 PM EDT Friday Jul 3 2015 


Synopsis... 
unsettled weather conditions will prevail through the Holiday 
weekend as a stationary frontal boundary remains in the vicinity. 
Daytime temperatures will be slightly below normal. 


&& 


Near term /until 8 PM this evening/... 
overall thinking remains the same with the stall front down across 
ncentral NC...south of the Albemarle Sound and Manteo. The wave of 
low pressure over east central Kentucky will continue to move slowly east-northeast 
during the day today and push into central Virginia tonight. This will 
pull the front back to the north with showers expected to develop 
along the front. The 12 NAM has slowed with its progression of the 
showers by about 3 to 6 hours so for the update have slowed the 
increase in the probability of precipitation to the NE during the day...keeping the lower 
Maryland Eastern Shore dry through 6 PM with just a chance for showers 
through midnight. Also was a little more optimistic on the sky 
cover cover with the slowers progression of the system. 


Previous discussion... 
latest surface analysis reveals a stalled frntal 
boundary across northern NC. North of the front over the forecast area visibilities are reduced 
to 1-3 miles so mentioned patchy fog through the Erly morng hours as 
winds are calm/light and skies have cleared out in some locations. 
All areas expected to remain dry this morng aside from coastal portions 
of NE NC. The dry weather may continue through the midday hours...before a 
middle-level shortwave trough approaches from the west late in the 
day...increasing rain chances especially over SW areas. Thunderstorms possible 
but not much in the way of severe weather expected with a mostly cloudy sky 
limiting instability and temperatures below normal...highs in the low to middle 
80s. Main threat will be locally heavy rain as precipitable waters  approach 2 
in. 


Area of precipitation across SW areas this afternoon shifts NE through the forecast area this 
eveng and tonight as the surface frntal boundary starts sliding northward. 
Low temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s under a mostly cloudy-cloudy 
sky. 


&& 


Short term /8 PM this evening through Sunday/... 
unsettled weather continues into the short term period as the surface 
frntal boundary remains over the middle Atlantic. Rain showers/thunderstorms will again be 
possible Sat as an upper-level trough axis approaches from the west and 
develops a surface low that rides the front. Models continue to differ 
on the placement/timing of precipitation...but for now will go with 30-50% 
probability of precipitation across the forecast area...continuing into Sat night. Heavy rain remains 
as the greatest impact. Another potent shortwave will bring a 
chance for precipitation sun especially over southern areas. Quantitative precipitation forecast up to 1 in 
expected this weekend...with higher amounts possible in areas that 
receive multiple rounds of convection. Temperatures remain slightly below 
normal both days...with highs avgg in the middle 80s areawide. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Friday/... 
the medium range period is characterized by continued low amplitude 
upper troughing over the eastern Continental U.S.. expect that with occasional 
upper disturbances/perturbations pushing across the region, and with 
weak surface trough along the southeast coast through much of the period, our 
current pattern of mainly diurnally driven showers/storms will 
continue through much of the first half of next week. Have kept probability of precipitation 
in the chance range by day, slight chance or less overnight. Highest probability of precipitation 
in the period are on Monday with quick moving upper shortwave 
pinwheeling across the area Monday and Monday night per both the 
12z/02 European model (ecmwf) and GFS. Forecast precipitable water values will also remain high 
through the period...lingering around +2 S.D. Above normal. 
Accordingly, we'll need to be on guard for heavy rainfall with 
showers through the period. Additionally, with this increased 
humidity/dewpoints through the period, took a degree or two off high 
temperatures Mon-Wed...generally favoring a typical middle-July 
warm/moderately humid set up across the area through much of next 
week. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Friday through Wednesday/... 
a frontal boundary will remain just S of the Virginia/NC border into this afternoon. 
Models track surface low pressure from the Ohio/Tennessee valleys through the northern mdatlc 
region from lt today through Sat. The frontal boundary to the S (now) returns north 
beginning lt tonight...continuing into Friday. Rain showers/possible thunderstorms expected by lt 
this afternoon...continuing into Sat. A second additional wave of precipitation possible 
Sat night/sun as frontal boundary sinks S again...and weak surface low pressure tracks 
through NC. Confidence in timing/duration of any IFR conds low at this time 
into sun (and likely to be confined to periods of pcpn). 


&& 


Marine... 
unsettled weather conds continue over the waters through the Holiday weekend. 
Frontal boundary has settled over the NC coastal waters...and remains there this 
morning...before pulling back north lt tonight into Sat. Primarily north-northeast winds 
becoming east-southeast today (speeds at or below 15 kt)...though vrb in vicinity of NE NC waters. 
The boundary sinks back S lt Sat into sun as weak surface low pressure exits S 
of new eng...resulting in winds switching from mainly south-southwest (sat) to north-northeast 
(sun). Through the weekend...conds remain sub-sca...W/ waves in the Bay 
avgg 1-2 feet and seas on the ocn waters avgg 2-4 feet...and wind speeds 
mainly at or below 15 knots. Gusty winds/heavy rain will be possible in any thunderstorms the 
next few days. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...none.
