NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1102 am EDT sun may 1 2016 


Synopsis... 
a warm front will slowly lift north across the area this 
afternoon. A cold front stalls over the area Monday...then pushes 
to the coast on Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
late morning analysis indicating ~1028 mb surface high pressure off 
the New England coast...with an elongated area of low pressure 
from the lower Ohio Valley to the eastern Great Lakes. Moist west-southwest flow 
prevails aloft. Still rather cool and damp across the County Warning Area...temperatures 
have warmed into the middle 60s in NE NC along the Albemarle 
Sound...but most areas are still struggling through the middle 50s to 
around 60 f (even cooler across the far north). Showers are 
widespread across the western/northwest portions of the County Warning Area with rain more 
spotty across the E/se. Made some adjustments to the 
forecast...mainly in the near term through about 18z...to lower 
temperatures (will maintain the likely to categorical probability of precipitation in most 
zones). Despite how cool it is now...did not drop highs too much 
as the potential for a late day warming still looks possible as 
area of partial clearing noted on satellite to the west across the 
mountains with low level flow prognosticated to shift from southeast to south-southwest after 
18z...would expect at least the low clouds to scatter out enough 
to support highs into the upper 70s interior NE NC...to the upper 
60s to Lower-Middle 70s most other places. Across the NE...especially 
the Eastern Shore probably see no clearing at all and winds will be 
slower to shift to the SW so lowered highs into the upper 50s to 
middle 60s. Transformation from stable conds to marginally unstable by 
later this afternoon as warming occurs. Will continue west/ possible scattered 
rain showers/thunderstorms late this afternoon/evening (esp west of the bay). 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Tuesday/... 
keeping chance-likely probability of precipitation over the forecast area tonight...though tapering off after 
mdngt. Vrb clouds-mostly cloudy this evening...then widespread stratus 
possible after mdngt in light south-southwest low level flow. Low temperatures mainly in the l-m60s. 


Models suggesting a break in precipitation and even widespread cloudiness for much 
of Monday ahead of slowly moving cold front approaching from the northwest. Becoming 
marginally unstable again by Monday afternoon west/ vrb clouds-partly cloudy conds. 
Forcing remains very weak. Hi temperatures in the l-m80s...though 70s near the 
CST. 


Upper level low pressure exiting the MS valley results in incrsg moisture into 
the mdatlc states beginning Monday evening. A significant wave of 
moisture expected to cross the forecast area Monday night/Tuesday morning then exit by Tuesday 
afternoon. Cold front remains slo to push to the CST through Tuesday afternoon. Will 
have a several hour period of hi chance (s)-likely (cntrl/n) probability of precipitation Monday 
night/Tuesday morning then expecting precipitation coverage to become more scattered Tuesday afternoon. 
Will include at least slight chance thunderstorm Monday night/Tuesday morning all 
areas...then only across far southern/southeast Virginia and NE NC Tuesday afternoon. Low temperatures 
Monday night from the around 60f northwest to the m60s southeast. Hi temperatures Tuesday from the 
u60s north to m70s S. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
long term period will feature frequent chances for rain and near to 
slightly below normal temperatures. For Tuesday ngt/Wed...a frntal boundary slowly 
sags S into the Carolinas...as low pressure develops along the front. 
Continue to favor the 12z European model (ecmwf) which keeps the front closer to the 
forecast area while the 12z GFS pushes the front farther S. Chances of rain 
range from 20% northwest areas to 50% southeast areas. Low temperatures Tuesday night in the 
low/middle 50s with hi temperatures Wednesday in the low/middle 70s. Chance probability of precipitation continue 
Thursday and Friday with an upper-level trough over the eastern Continental U.S.. hi temperatures 
will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s on average each day. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Sunday through Thursday/... 
ceilings will gradually lower to MVFR all sites through 14z with -ra 
moving across the Piedmont and lower Maryland Eastern Shore. Warm front 
arrives this afternoon. In advance of the warm front...expecting a 
period of rain between 14z-18z at kric and ksby. As the warm front 
lifts north this afternoon expect ceilings to become VFR all sites 
(except lingering MVFR ksby) with the possibility of scattered showers 
and thunderstorms. Showers will linger through early Monday morning. 


A cold front will move through the area on Monday keeping the chance 
for showers and/or thunderstorms. Shower chances will continue through 
much of the coming week. 


&& 


Marine... 
east-southeast winds this morning will become south 10-15 knots this afternoon 
as warm front lifts north through the area. Continued S winds 
10-15 knots tonight may push seas to 5 feet across the outer northern 
waters...and for that reason have hoisted an Small Craft Advisory for hazardous 
seas north of Parramore Island beginning at midnight. Seas should 
remain elevated through Monday afternoon....with winds becoming SW around 10 
knots ahead of an approaching cold front. This front will drop south 
across the waters Monday night into Tuesday morning with a wind shift to 
the N-NE. Sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions are then expected to continue through 
the end of the week. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas from midnight tonight 
to 5 PM EDT Monday for anz650-652.
