NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1119 am EDT Wednesday may 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure remains anchored well off the middle Atlantic coast 
through Thursday...with a trough of low pressure nearly 
stationary east of the mountains. High pressure will build over 
the northeast states on Friday...and slide off the coast on 
Saturday. A slow moving cold front will approach the local area 
later in the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
Summer-like conds continuing. Ridge surface-aloft from western Atlantic to near the 
mdatlc CST remains strong...but has weakened...shifted just east of its 
location of previous days. Somewhat deeper south-southwest flow has lead to 
incrsd moisture as evidenced by more cloudiness across the forecast area thus far 
today than in past few. Weak Lee trough combined west/ weak trough 
aloft...incrsd dewpoints and heating resulting in a bit higher ptntl 
for at least isolated/scattered convection this afternoon into evening hours (mnly 
inland from the cst). Ptntl for lclly heavy downpours and brief 
gusty winds west/ any storms. Warm again with hi temperatures mainly in the 
M/u80s...locally in the 70s at the immediate coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Friday/... 
lingering storms this evening dissipate overnight. Warm/humid again west/ low 
temperatures from the u60s to around 70f. 


Models continue to show a persistent trough on Thursday which when 
combined with the apprchg moisture from the west will likely be the 
trigger for more scattered convection Thursday afternoon/early evening. Will carry 
a fairly widespread 40% pop for scattered thunderstorms over most of the 
County Warning Area on Thursday. Threat will be for lclly heavy downpours given the precipitable waters 
at or above 1.5 inches...deep temperatures in the middle-upper 60s and relatively weak 
steering currents. Highs Thursday/Friday mainly in the middle to upper 
80s...xcpt 70s at the immediate coast again. Probability of precipitation on Friday should 
begin to diminish a bit and focus more west of I-95 as surface high 
pushes off the NE coast as slides south into the middle Atlantic bringing 
somewhat drier and more stable airmass to the coast. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
long term period starts off Sat with an upper-level ridge breaking 
down over the eastern Seaboard as a cold front drops into the medium Atlantic 
region. There is still some differences amongst models in regards 
to when the front makes it into the local area which would affect 
timing of precipitation...with the 12z GFS faster than the 12z ecwmf. For 
now with this still several days out will forecast 20-30% probability of precipitation Sat 
increasing to 30-50% sun with the front in the vicinity. Expect 
above normal temperatures both days with highs avgg in the middle to upper 
80s. Chance of rain continues into Erly next week with temperatures not 
quite as warm as the weekend...highs only in the upper 70s to lower 
80s on average. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
high pressure has centered off the middle-Atlantic coast early this 
morning...as low pressure locates over the Great Lakes region. The 
result is a S-SW wind of 5-15 knots...strongest near the coast. Earlier 
broken-overcast MVFR deck (1200-2000 feet agl) across south central Virginia is 
scattering out...and will likely dissipate by 12-13z. High pressure 
remains over the region today. S-SW winds of 10-15 knots persist with 
occasional gusts around 20 knots. Isolated-widely scattered 
showers/thunderstorms possible after 18z...mainly over the Piedmont 
into central Virginia. 


High pressure dominates into the weekend...resulting in diurnally 
driven showers and thunderstorms. VFR conditions will prevail 
outside of thunderstorms. 


&& 


Marine... 
latest observation over the water indicate subsiding S-SW winds over the 
water...dropping at or below 15 knots. Waves average 2 feet and seas 2-4 feet. High 
pressure remains offshore today as low pressure lifts into southeast 
Canada. A trailing cold front extends southwestward over the Great Lakes 
region. Hi-res guidance indicates another evening of Small Craft Advisory conditions 
this evening...but gradient winds are weaker than last nights (tues 
night) marginal Small Craft Advisory conditions. Temperature advection is also neutral. Have 
capped wind speeds at 15 knots as a result...remaining sub-sca. 
Aforementioned cold front remains well north of the region Thursday as 
the high pushes farther offshore. Southerly winds average 10-15 knots. High 
pressure builds over the NE states and southeast Canada Thursday-Friday behind 
the front...relaxing the gradient over the local waters. Flow 
becomes southeasterly Thursday night-Fri...at or below 10 knots. High pressure and southerly 
winds at or below 15 knots persist over the water into the weekend. A cold 
front approaches from the west Sunday...reaching the waters Sun 
night before stalling.
