NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
121 am EDT Friday Sep 19 2014 


Synopsis... 
a weak cold front will push south of the area overnight. High 
pressure from southeast Canada builds into New England from Friday 
into the upcoming weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
weak surface cold front settles through the forecast area this evening...then is S of the 
region by after mdngt as middle level short wave exits off the CST. Ongoing isolated 
rain showers in vicinity of the Maryland Eastern Shore (dorchester county) and Farmville 
in the eastern Piedmont are expected to shift S-SW the remainder 
of this evening. Radar returns are very light and any precipitation 
accumulations will be around 0.01 inches at best. Otherwise...most 
areas across interior Virginia and the Maryland/Virginia Eastern Shore will be 
cloudy to mostly cloudy...partly cloudy across southeast Virginia and NE NC. 
Winds vrb and mainly light this evening...becoming north-northeast after mdngt...and a 
little breezy near the CST (esp lt). Low temperatures tonight from the M/u50s inland 
to l60s right near the CST in southeast Virginia/NE NC. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Sunday/... 
another period of onshore winds from Friday into sun as large surface hi pressure 
builds from southeast Canada across new eng. Along west/ the NE winds (breezy at 
the cst) will be periods of cloudiness...especially Friday through Sat morning. While 
no trigger for precipitation across the region...not ruling out isolated rain showers or 
drizzle due to the east-northeast surface winds. 


By Sat afternoon...the maritime flow weakens...ptntlly allowing drying 
over the forecast area. However...surface low pressure developing off the Georgia/Florida CST Friday 
night...is forecast to slowly track NE off the southeast Continental U.S. CST. Some 
timing differences in the models with respect to this surface low (nam slower than 
GFS west/ its eventual movement). Right now...ECMWF/GFS/NAM keep bulk 
of that systems moisture to the east. Will bring incrsg cloudiness to coastal 
sections of the forecast area beginning Sat...while keeping other places at 
worst pcldy. By sun...the low expected to track away from the 
CST...resulting in dry/seasonably warm conds over the forecast area. 


Hi temperatures Friday mainly in the M/u70s. Low temperatures Friday night from the m50s to 
l60s. Hi temperatures Sat from the u70s at the CST to l/m80s inland. Hi 
temperatures sun ranging through the 80s. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
a reinforcing cold front will usher in below normal temperatures through 
the extended as cool Canadian high pressure builds over the the NE. 


Medium range guidance in fairly good agreement over the eastern Continental U.S. 
With the evolving amplified upper air pattern. Amplified pattern 
will feature a longwave trough over the eastern Continental U.S. To begin the 
period. An associated secondary/reinforcing cold front will sweep 
through the region Sunday night-Monday morning. Moisture will be 
rather limited along the front (pwats ~1.5 inches)...but height 
falls and increasing winds aloft (jet streak rounding the base of 
the upper trough) will provide forcing for ascent over the region. 
Should be enough for slight chance/isolated probability of precipitation...with the best 
coverage over the northern local area. The bigger headline with the front 
will be the dry air and cold air advection Post frontal as high 
pressure builds in from the W-NW. Monday will be a transition day as 
the coolest/driest air lags behind the front. Reinforcing shortwave 
crosses the Great Lakes-NE states Tuesday as the trough axis pushes off 
the eastern Seaboard. Meanwhile...mid-level ridge will progress eastward over 
the Central Plains and into the eastern Continental U.S. Tues-weds. Cool Canadian 
high pressure prognosticated to build over New England Wednesday. Upper/surface high 
pressure remains over the region Thursday. The result will be continued 
dry conditions and below normal temperatures. 


Highs will be below average through the period...with Tuesday and Wednesday being 
the coldest days at nearly -1 Standard dev (low-middle 70s). Went a little 
above wpc guidance as low level thicknesses yield slightly warmer 
temperatures under mostly sunny skies. Lows generally in the low-middle 50s 
inland to low 60s near the coast. Few locales in the Piedmont may 
drop into the upper 40s at night. 


&& 


Aviation /05z Friday through Tuesday/... 
as of 05z...VFR should hold for the 06z taf period. Broken-overcast clouds 
with bases from 5 to 8 kft were over most of the area except the 
far southeast. Isolated showers are expected today across western sections...perhaps 
impacting kric. Light easterly winds continue through the period. 


Outlook...mainly VFR and dry weather are expected to continue into 
early next week. High pressure will prevail though a weak cold front 
crosses the area on Sunday night to early Monday. 


&& 


Marine... 
weak cold front crosses/dissipates over the waters this evening as 
high pressure builds over southeast Canada and the NE states. Weak pressure 
gradient has produced Ely winds over the water...average 5-10 knots. Waves 
generally 1-2 feet (locally up to 3 in the mouth of the bay) and seas 
3-4 feet. Flow becomes northeasterly tonight and Friday as high pressure builds 
over New England. Gradient will strengthen...with speeds reaching 20 
knots over the coastal waters Friday afternoon. Combination of strong surface 
high pressure...NE flow and warm waters may result in Small Craft Advisory winds over 
the coastal waters. Capped at 20 knots for now. However...seas will 
build to 4-5 feet late Friday...first in the northern waters...then spreading 
southward over the remaining coastal waters Friday evening-night. Small Craft Advisory 
headlines have been hoisted for the coastal waters late Friday through Friday 
night (third period). If flow is stronger than forecast...6-7 feet 
seas will be possible. 4 feet waves also possible at the mouth of the 
Bay. 


High pressure will begin to slowly push off the NE coast Sat as low 
pressure develops along a stalled boundary off the southeast coast. The low 
will lift along the boundary through the weekend...locating off the 
middle-Atlantic coast sometime late this weekend. Small Craft Advisory conditions are 
not anticipated at this time based on the gradient winds...but spatial and 
timing differences with respect to low pressure lend little confidence. Seas 
will likely remain elevated (4-5 ft) through Sat...but flow will 
briefly become S-southeasterly late Sat-Sat night as the surface ridge breaks 
down over the water. This will allow seas to drop below Small Craft Advisory conds. 


Surface low lifts NE off the coast late in the weekend with a cold front 
forecast to cross the region Sun night-Monday morning. Below normal 
temperatures early next week over warm waters may produce periods of Small Craft Advisory 
conds through the middle of next week.
