NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
338 PM EST sun Nov 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
a warm front will lift north across the middle Atlantic region tonight 
as high pressure moves farther offshore. A cold front will cross the 
area late Monday into Monday night. Weak high pressure builds into 
the area from the west Tuesday. Low pressure tracks up the East 
Coast Tuesday night through Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Monday morning/... 
current GOES WV imagery indicates a potent trough lifting NE into 
the Tennessee Valley...with moisture feeding into the system from the 
Gulf. At the surface...a 995mb low is developing over northern MS...with 
a warm front extending eastward across Alabama and Georgia. Locally...middle and 
high clouds have overspread the area this afternoon with 
temperatures ranging from the middle 50s over the bulk of the area...to 
the low 60s over southeast portions. Areas of -ra have begun to enter the 
SW Piedmont counties and interior NE NC. 


The warm front with strong vertical motion will cross the region 
tonight. Substantial moisture will continue to spread northward due 
to a strong nearly 70kt low level jet. 12hr probability of precipitation for rain tonight will remain 
at 100%...and will be highest over western portions through shortly 
after midnight...before shifting toward the coast overnight. A 
thunder mention will continue for coastal NE NC. Coastal eastern Virginia and 
southeast Maryland could hear a few rumbles of thunder...but confidence is not 
high enough to include it. Storm Prediction Center has continued a slight risk for 
severe for NE NC counties immediately adjacent to the Albemarle 
Sound. Low-level lapse rates remain rather unimpressive...and any 
middle-level dry air appears to arrive once the strongest forcing exits 
the region...so the severe threat is minimal. A tightening pressure 
gradient and 6hr pressure falls of -6mb to -10mb per GFS will result 
in breezy/windy conditions...especially in vicinity of the coast. 
Gusts from the south-southeast direction of 30 to 40 miles per hour are possible. Overnight 
lows should range through the 50s...with readings likely to rise 
after midnight. Strong forcing and substantial moisture should 
result in a ~6hr period of moderate to occasionally heavy rain 
tonight...with total quantitative precipitation forecast amounts averaging 0.5 to 0.75in north-central 
portions and 1.00-1.25in near the coast (and NE nc). 


&& 


Short term /6 am Monday morning through Wednesday/... 
the warm front will be well north-northeast of the region by 12z Monday...with a 
cold front approaching toward the far western counties by 00z Tuesday. Low 
clouds and fog are possible Monday morning...with partial clearing 
expected by afternoon...especially inland. A gusty SW wind will 
develop during the late morning and afternoon in advance of the cold 
front. This will help push temperatures into the 70s (see the climatology 
section below for records). 20-30% probability of precipitation will be confined to east/southeast 
portions of the area as the 23/12z NAM remains an outlier in 
lingering deeper moisture. 


Weak high pressure builds into the region Monday night and Tuesday. Partial 
clearing is expected inland. Clouds potentially linger near the 
coast as the frontal boundary stalls offshore...and low pressure 
begins to develop off the southeast coast later Tuesday. Highs Tuesday 
should range from the middle 50s northwest...to low 60s southeast...after morning 
lows from the middle 40s northwest...to low/middle 50s southeast. 


23/12z GFS/European model (ecmwf) continue to demonstrate agreement with respect to 
a low pressure system developing along the stalled frontal boundary 
near the southeast Continental U.S. Late Tuesday/Tuesday night. This low then tracks north-northeast 
along the coast Wednesday bringing rain to the middle Atlantic region on a busy 
travel day. Of note the 23/12z NAM is flatter and more 
progressive...but at this time the GFS/European model (ecmwf) scenario is preferred 
per pmdhmd. Thermal profiles suggest some wet snow could mix in as the 
precipitation tapers off Wednesday afternoon. Confidence with respect to any 
accumulation is low at this time...as it will be difficult to cool 
the boundary layer fully by dynamical cooling as any cold air advection is minimal. 
Cips analog guidance off the 23/00z GFS suggests the best potential 
for any accumulating snow will be across the northwest Piedmont counties. 
Clouds and precipitation will limit high temperatures to the upper 30s/low 
40s inland...to the middle/upper 40s over southeast portions...and these will 
likely occur early in the day. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
00z/23 runs of the GFS and European model (ecmwf) coming more into line with respect to ptntl 
low pressure developing along stalled frontal boundary near the southeast Continental U.S. CST lt 
Tuesday/Tuesday night...then tracking north-northeast along the CST Wednesday into Wednesday night. A 
busy period of travel midweek incrsly likely to be impacted by 
rain...and as ptntl coastal storm winds down (lt Wednesday/Wednesday ngt)...model temperature 
profiles suggest possible rain ending as wet snow inland. Have nudged probability of precipitation 
up to 70-80% east portion west...40-60% inland on Wednesday. 


Precipitation/moist then moves east of the area and off the CST later Wednesday 
Wednesday night...with probability of precipitation diminishing from west to east. A mainly dry front 
swings across the area Thursday afternoon into early Friday morng. Hi pressure will 
then build into and over the region Friday through Sat. Maximum temperatures will be 
in the l40s west and M/u40s east Wednesday...in the u40s to l50s Thursday...in the 
M/u40s Friday...and range through the 40s Sat. Min temperatures will be in the 
middle 30s to lower 40s Wednesday morng...in the upper 20s to middle 30s Thursday and 
Friday morngs...and in the middle 20s to lower 30s Sat morng. 


&& 


Aviation /21z Sunday through Friday/... 
high pressure over the western Atlantic continues to move away 
from the coast as low pressure deepens over the lower MS valley. 
This is pushing Atlantic and Gulf moisture into the Carolinas and 
it will spread northward this afternoon and evening. 
Initially...just seeing some high clouds over most of the 
area...but some low level clouds are sliding north through the 
western Piedmont. As the low lifts northeast through the Tennessee River 
valley tonight...the associated warm front will lift up the coast 
and slide through the region between 6z and 9z. Ahead of the 
front...expect MVFR to IFR ceilings with periods of rain. Also 
expect the winds to increase out of the southeast to around 10 to 15 kts 
with higher gust. 


Behind the front...after 9z...the winds will shift to the south 
and still be gusty to around 15 kts. But once in the warm 
sector...should slowly see ceilings improve and could potentially 
see VFR conditions return after 15z...as drier air aloft moving in 
and mixing help ceilings to rise. 


The next chance for MVFR or IFR conditions comes on Wednesday as 
low pressure lifts NE along the coast spreading rain and low 
clouds over the area. 


&& 


Marine... 
forecast updated with an upgrade to Gale Warning over the ocean. 
Despite warm air over cool water temperatures...with a strong pressure 
gradient ahead of an approaching cold front and weak low pressure 
development over northern Virginia...and latest nam12 progging 925 mb winds 
~75 knots...think that there will be at least a few hours of winds at or above 
34 knots over the ocean tonight. Seas will reach 6-8 feet. Gusts may come 
close to gale force over the Bay as well (at least at elevated 
sites) where strong Small Craft Advisory conditions are anticipated. Also 
maintained the Small Craft Advisory headlines for the other waters. The Gale Warning 
ends late Monday morning...but may need to be extended as gusts could 
continue in the 30-35 knots range through the afternoon hours. The Small Craft Advisory 
headlines all end during the day Monday as winds decrease just ahead 
of the front which crosses the waters late Monday night/Tuesday morng. 
Improving marine conditions then into Tuesday with hi pressure over the 
area.
