NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
409 am EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds over the southeastern states today and 
Tuesday. A weak front drops into the area Tuesday night and 
settles near the Virginia North Carolina border Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
isolated showers/thunderstorms will pass over northern portions of the local area 
through 12z as a weak trough passes over the northern mid-Atlantic. 
Otherwise...mid/upper level ridging will continue to strengthen over 
the southeast today. The low-level flow steadily veers to the SW 
allowing for a favorable situation for strong surface heating. 850mb 
temperatures approach 20c by this afternoon supporting highs in the 
middle 90s away from the coastlines...with upper 80s/low 90s along the 
coasts. Dewpoints should generally average 65-70f during peak 
heating and this should keep heat indices at or below 100. There will be no 
substantial trigger for convection...although a lingering surface 
trough will support a low (20-30%) pop for afternoon/early evening 
showers/thunderstorms generally east of the I-95 corridor. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Wednesday/... 
Tuesday should be the hottest day as 850mb temperatures average 
around 20c. This combined with deep mixing and a SW wind of 10-15mph 
should help boost highs into the middle/upper 90s inland with low 90s 
along the coastlines. Afternoon dewpoints should fall into the 
middle/upper 60s...and once again this should keep heat indices at or below 
100. Current forecast highs average around +1.5-2.0 St dev above 
seasonal means...and approach but fall short of records...which are 
listed below for reference. Tuesday should generally be dry as a 
subsidence inversion inhibits convection. The approach and passage 
of a weak cold front Tuesday night could trigger a few 
showers/tstms...but overall coverage should be very limited. 


The front stalls near the Virginia/NC border Wednesday. A slight chance pop 
will be maintained in vicinity of the boundary...but overall expect 
partly to mostly sunny conditions. Highs Wednesday should drop back 
into the upper 80s/low 90s. Lows Tuesday/Wednesday mornings should 
average in the low/middle 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
long term period will feature above normal temperatures and occasional 
chances for rain. For Wednesday ngt/Thu...aforementioned weak frontal boundary 
washes out over/just S of the forecast area while surface hi pressure builds across the 
middle Atlantic. Did include a slight chance for a rain showers/thunderstorm over southern 
areas closest to the greatest moisture axis and forcing...but 
nothing widespread expected. Temperatures Wednesday will rise into the upper 80s to 
lower 90s under a mostly sunny sky and light onshore winds. 


For the remainder of the week...broad upper-level ridge across the eastern 
Continental U.S. Will keep warm temperatures over the area. Surface hi pressure remains 
offshore late in the week as a cold front approaches from the west. 
Models agree on timing the front into the middle Atlantic over the 
weekend...so did introduce a chance (30%) for afternoon/eveng 
shras/tstms. Hi temperatures Friday and Sat will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s 
with low temperatures in the middle 60s to lower 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Monday through Friday/... 
VFR conditions prevail early this morning across the local area. 
Scattered-broken middle level clouds (decks 4-6k feet agl) generally along and 
north of a line from Farmville to Richmond and Salisbury. 
Elsewhere...generally broken high clouds at or above 25k feet above ground level. Isolated 
showers/thunderstorms ongoing north of a Richmond to Salisbury 
line...possibly impacting ksby through early morning. Confidence is not 
high...so will adjust tafs as needed. Otherwise...mixing will 
preclude fog tonight as south winds average 5-7 knots. Will need to monitor 
locales close to the Albemarle Sound for some stratus...with kecg 
forecast to drop to IFR ceilings by 8-9z. 


For today...little change in the pattern as VFR conditions prevail. 
Isolated to widely scattered showers/thunderstorms possible along a 
surface trough over eastern Virginia. Southerly winds generally around 10 knots with a few 
gusts up to 20 knots this afternoon. 


High pressure remains anchored over the western Atlantic through midweek as 
a weak surface trough remains over the region. A cold front approaches 
from the west on Tuesday...crossing the region late Tuesday night into 
Wednesday. High pressure returns Thursday as the front stalls over the 
Carolinas. Showers/thunderstorms possible each day. 


&& 


Marine... 
surface high pressure remains anchored over the western Atlantic as a weak 
surface trough locates west of the waters. Resultant gradient southerly flow 
over warm waters has pushed speeds to around 15 knots in the Bay and 
15-20 knots in the coastal waters. Waves also average 2-3 feet and seas 3-4 
feet. Small Craft Advisory conditions not anticipated through the early morning. Little 
change in the pattern today with southerly winds generally at or below 15 knots over 
the waters. Seas subside to 2-3 feet today and waves 1-2 feet. Southerly flow 
increases again tonight...but not as strong as previous nights as 
flow becomes more southwesterly. Seas forecast to build back to 3-4 feet...but 
remain sub-sca. A cold front will approach the region 
Tuesday...crossing the waters late Tuesday night into Wednesday. Strengthening 
pressure gradient will result in increasing winds pre-frontal late 
Tuesday-Tuesday night...but warm air advection aloft will result in unfavorable lapse 
rates. 10-15 knots forecast over the Bay and 15-20 over the coastal 
waters. Seas remain 3-4 feet. Flow becomes west-northwest behind the front...but 
a weakening cold front/lack of cold air advection will prevent Small Craft Advisory conditions Post 
frontal. High pressure builds in behind the front Wednesday...settling 
over the waters Wednesday night through the end of the week. As a 
result...sub-sca conditions continue through the end of the week with 
winds at or below 10 knots and seas/waves at or below 2 feet.
