NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1020 PM EDT sun Apr 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure off the southeast coast...will track slowly northeast 
into the Atlantic through Monday...as high pressure builds eastward 
across New England and off the coast. A cold front will cross the 
area Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. High pressure returns 
for Wednesday and Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Monday morning/... 
low pressure is limping off the southeast Continental U.S. CST this evening...while surface 
hi pressure has settled over eastern new eng. Combination of that low and 
surface hi pressure to the north-northeast will result in continued low level flow from the 
NE through tonight. Worst of the weather has been confined to coastal NE 
NC...where clouds...gusty NE winds (to 30-40 kt) and intermittent light 
rain prevailed through early evening. Also...carrying hi surf 
advisory from beaches on northern NC Outer Banks as surf waves average close 
to 8 feet (minor beach erosion possible as well). Broken-overcast clouds will be 
maintained across southeast Virginia/interior NE NC overnight...W/ 20% probability of precipitation for 
NE NC through 06z. Elsewhere...mainly clear...breezy inland/windy at the 
CST. Low temperatures from the u30s inland to M/u40s at the CST in southeast Virginia/NE 
NC. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Monday morning through Wednesday/... 
upper level ridge builds over the region later tonight through Monday with low pressure 
continuing to (sloly) move out to sea. Improving conds expected 
over coastal NE NC (albeit very sloly)...W/ clr-p/cloudy weather elsewhere. 
Cold front tracking into the Ohio Valley Monday evening...will push east and over the 
mountains Tuesday morning. That front will bring incrsg clouds from west-east Tuesday...along 
with the next chance for rain. Most of if not all rain may hold off 
until afternoon west...and toward lt afternoon/evening east on Tuesday. Will maintain a slight 
chance of a thunderstorm...though dynamics weakening with time...as the fnt 
enters the region. 


Hi temperatures Monday from 55 to 60f right along the CST...to ranging through 
the 60s to near 70f inland. Low temperatures Monday night ranging from the m40s to 
around 50f. Hi temperatures on Tuesday ranging from the M/u70s inland...to 
the u60s to l70s at the CST. 


The cold front pushes out to sea Tuesday night...W/ significant drying and a period of 
cooling thereafter (fm after mdngt Tuesday night through wed). Maintaining 
30-40% probability of precipitation eastern portion of the forecast area Tuesday evening...15-25% elsewhere...then 
clearing after mdngt as winds become northwest. Near seasonable/clr-pcldy weather 
expected Wednesday west/ gusty northwest winds...mainly eastern portion. 


Low temperatures Tuesday night from the m40s northwest to l50s southeast. Hi temperatures Wednesday from the 
m60s to around 70f. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
progressive flow will result in near seasonable normal temperatures and 
generally dry conditions through the extended period forecast. A 
cold front will bring a chance of showers to the region Friday 
afternoon into Friday night. 


Trough axis will push off the NE coast Wednesday night as an upper 
level ridge builds eastward over the central-eastern Continental U.S.. at the surface...cool 
Canadian high pressure will build southeastward from the Great Lakes into 
the middle-Atlantic region Wednesday night-thurs. This will result in 
another cool day Thursday (highs generally in the middle-upper 60s) as 
flow remains NW-W. Surface high will slide over the local area Thursday- 
late Thursday...locating offshore Thursday night. This will veer the 
flow around to the south as the upper ridge axis builds overhead. 
Medium range guidance is coming into better agreement...but 
continue to struggle with the evolution of an upper trough over 
the intermountain west into the northern plains Thursday-Thursday night. 
However...guidance is in fairly good agreement with lifting a warm 
front over the region in the amplifying flow. Trailing cold front 
forecast to cross the region Friday afternoon. Westerly flow over the 
Southern Plains into the Gulf states will limit the amount of moisture 
advection into the region...especially east of the Appalachians. 
Dewpoints only prognosticated to warm into the low-middle 50s Friday. Best 
dynamics will also remain north of the local area as zonal flow 
prevails over the local area. However...increasing speeds aloft 
and small amplitude shortwaves will be enough to mention slight 
chance-low end chance probability of precipitation along the front at this time. With the local 
area in the warm sector Friday...temperatures will warm into the middle-upper 
70s (near 80 inland). Warm temperatures combined with low level Theta-E 
advection will maintain a marginally unstable airmass over the 
region Friday afternoon. Thus will carry a slight chance of thunder. 
Southern portion of the front will likely stall over the Carolinas Friday 
night-Sat in westerly flow aloft. Cool Canadian high pressure will be 
slow to build over the region as the trough remains over the NE 
states through the weekend. This will result in another warm day Sat 
with highs in the middle-upper 70s in westerly flow. Cooler Sunday as cool 
Canadian high pressure finally builds southeastward over the region. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Monday through Friday/... 
the pressure gradient between high pressure over New England and low 
pressure well off the Carolina coast will slowly weaken during the 
00z taf period. Gusty NE winds will continue over southeast portions 
overnight and at orf through Monday morning. Used NAM bufr and GFS 
MOS for sky conditions as NAM MOS was out to lunch. Have MVFR at ecg 
and orf overnight through Monday morning with a short period of it 
at phf Monday morning as well. Ecg has the potential for some IFR 
early Monday morning but confidence was too low to include. 


Outlook...some patchy fog is possible Tuesday morning but current 
indications do not point to widespread IFR. As a cold front moves 
through...there is a good chance for showers and a few thunderstorms 
Tuesday afternoon and evening. High pressure returns Wednesday and 
Thursday. There will once again be a chance for showers and 
thunderstorms on Friday. 


&& 


Marine... 
strong NE winds continue over the waters this afternoon as high 
pressure remains ridged over the waters and low pressure resides 
off the southeast coast. Pressure gradient over the southern waters between low 
and high pressure remains quite strong...resulting in gusts 
approaching gale force over the southern coastal waters...Currituck 
Sound and Lower Bay. Mhx VAD wind profile shows 40-50 knots winds a 
thousand foot off the surface with several elevated sites recording 
winds in excess of 35-40 knots. Conditions will begin to change this 
evening as high pressure pushes off the NE coast and low pressure 
begins to slowly lift northeastward. Winds will back around to the north and 
diminish slightly...averaging 20-30 knots. Gradient will also relax 
slightly. However...seas will remain elevated...ranging from 7-10 
feet (highest in the southern waters) tonight. Surface low will push farther 
out to sea Monday as high pressure remains ridged over the waters. 
Sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions expected over the Bay and eastern Virginia rivers by middle- 
late Monday morning. Will hold onto Small Craft Advisory headlines for the mouth of 
the Bay for waves 4+ feet through Monday as well as the sound for winds 
20-25 knots. Seas will subside to 4-8 feet Monday. Flow becomes southerly Monday 
night in advance of a cold front approaching from the west. Seas 
will finally fall below 5 feet late Monday night-early Tuesday morning. 
Cold front will cross the waters Tuesday afternoon with Small Craft Advisory 
conditions again likely behind the front.
