NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
941 PM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
a weak cold front crosses the area late tonight. High pressure builds 
back into the region Sunday afternoon through Sunday night. The high 
gradually slides off the coast Monday...and becomes centered well 
offshore on Tuesday. The next cold front crosses the area late 
Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Sunday morning/... 
latest analysis revealing a surface cold front across the Ohio Valley. 
This front remains quite weak with winds shifting from SW ahead of 
the boundary to west-northwest in its wake (with airmass across the upper 
Midwest only marginally cooler). Infrared satellite showing just a few 
showers over New York/PA with just a few middle/high clouds expected to 
push through the local area later tonight. Enough mixing 
anticipated overnight to keep temperatures fairly mild...raised 
mins a few degrees across the north and west (kept them about the 
same as previous forecast across the interior southeast where winds are 
generally calm). Overall...lows will average 50-55 f with a few upper 40s 
over interior southeast/S Virginia and NE NC. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Sunday morning through Tuesday/... 
cold front pushes into the Carolinas Sunday morning as high prs 
builds in from the north. Weak cold air advection combined with a compressed prs 
gradient behind frontal passage results in a well mixed airmass Sunday. Expect 
breezy to windy conditions (15-25 with g30 mph) along the coast... 
lighter winds (10-20 mph) west of the Bay. The downslpoing component 
to the wind allows temperatures to reach between 70-75. 


The high builds over the area Sunday night and Monday...then shifts 
offshore Tuesday. Dry through the period with pt to mostly sunny days 
and fair nights. Cool Sun night. Lows in the u30s-l40s...45-50 at 
the beaches. 850 mb temperatures around 13c results in highs u60s-l70s Monday. 


Return flow sets up Monday night and Tuesday resulting in a warming trend. 
Lows Monday night in the u40s-m50s. 850 mb temperatures around 16c sprt highs in the 
u70s-l80s. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
lots of uncertainty with this forecast especially toward next 
weekend. Initial front passes through on Wednesday. Slight 
differences of timing on the front. Have chance probability of precipitation of showers with 
this front as it pushes through. Then beginning Friday into Saturday 
the models diverge. Have the European model (ecmwf) developing a deep cutoff low over 
the southeast US while the GFS has the cutoff developing more toward 
New England with a more progressive pattern. The European model (ecmwf) is toward the 
deepest ensemble solution. However the overall upper air pattern is 
such that it could support the cutoff over southeastern US. Will 
have to watch how future model runs develop. Either way starting 
on Thursday colder air begins to arrive and we have the coldest 
air this fall across the area by Saturday. This drops highs into 
the 50s Friday and Saturday with some upper 40s possible in western 
sections. Overnight lows will drop into the 30s. If the winds stay 
up should keep temperatures above freezing over all areas. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Sunday through Thursday/... 
a trough followed by a weak dry cold front will pass through the 
region overnight. SW to west winds will veer to the northwest and become breezy 
by daybreak sun morng into Sun afternoon. Gusts will average 15-20 knots inland 
with higher gusts around 25 knots possible alng the immediate CST. Hi 
pressure settles over the middle Atlantic region Sun night and Monday...then 
slides off the CST for Monday night into Wednesday morng. Conditions will 
continue to be dry/VFR with winds becoming south-southwest at generally less 
than 15 knots Monday afternoon. The next cold front is expected to cross the 
area Wednesday into Wednesday eveng. 


&& 


Marine... 
the pressure gradient along the Bay and coast has tightened this evening 
ahead of an approaching cold front. The weak cold frontal passage 
will occur late tonight into Sun morning. Southwest winds around 
15kt over the water will persist tonight becoming west overnight. 
Winds will veer to the northwest behind the cold front after 2 am. Speeds 
will increase to due to low level cold air advection (15kt 
rivers/sound...15-20kt with gusts to 25kt ches Bay...15-25kt with 
gusts to 25 to 30kt coastal waters Fenwick Island to Virginia/NC 
border). Seas over the coastal waters will be slow to rise due to 
a west-northwest direction but should average 3-4ft from 10-20nm. Up to 5ft 
seas will be possible near 20nm from Fenwick Island to 
Chincoteague. Waves in the Bay should build to 3 feet by daybreak. Small Craft Advisory 
flags have been raised for ches Bay and coastal waters from 
Fenwick Island to the Virginia/NC border beginning after midnight 
tonight and persisting through Sunday. Have held off on a Small Craft Advisory for 
the rivers...however...the rivers could see a brief period of Small Craft Advisory 
conds Sunday morning with gusty northwest winds. High pressure settles 
over the waters on Monday and then slides eastward off the coast Monday 
night through Tuesday. A strong cold front will cross the water 
Wednesday and Wednesday night. This will again generate small 
craft conditions middle and late week. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
aftr coordinate with surrounding offices / state agencies...will not issue 
any fire danger statements at this time. Have continued to highlight the gusty 
winds & rh's 25 to 30% across the Eastern Shore in the fwf. Rh's over 
the Piedmont will drop to 20-25% but with somewhat less wind.
