NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
401 PM EDT sun Apr 26 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure tracks well off the North Carolina coast through this afternoon. 
High pressure slowly builds back into the area from the west Monday 
into Tuesday. The high will slide off the coast on Wednesday...with 
the next low pressure system tracking along the southeast coast 
on Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Monday morning/... 
current analysis indicates surface low pressure now well off the southeast 
coast...with frontal boundary stalled over SC. While parent surface 
high pressure is centered over Canada...just enough northwest confluent 
flow aloft has enabled surface ridge to extend into the local area 
this afternoon. The result has been a nicer afternoon than anticipated...partly 
sunny skies now cover most of the region...only NE NC and south 
central Virginia zones near the NC border remain cloudy. Little to 
nothing on the radar...will maintain a 20% pop in NE NC through 
22z...otherwise will have a dry forecast tonight. Temperatures 
into early evening will average in the low 60s over interior northern 1/2 
of the County Warning Area...to the middle 50s near the immediate coast and in NE NC. 


Only concern later tonight will be for potential fog due to wet 
ground and clearing skies. Since some drying has prevailed this 
afternoon...and with surface dew points now falling into the 30s in many 
areas...thinking is that fog will be patchy if it develops at all. 
Also...not really an ideal pressure pattern for fog as surface high 
does not build over the area and some additional mixing is 
possible. For now did not include fog in the gridded forecast. 
Lows tonight mainly in the 40-45 f range...but some interior 
sections could dip into the upper 30s. Variably cloudy overnight. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Monday morning through Tuesday/... 
broad upper level low pressure extending from Canadian Maritimes to southeast Great Lakes 
will remain in place through Monday night. Short wave diving southeast through the 
mdatlc states on Monday brings vrb clouds and low probability of precipitation - especially north and east 
locations (alg west/ continued cool conds). Hi temperatures Monday in the l60s NE 
to the middle to perhaps upper 60s elsewhere. Becoming mostly clear Monday 
night...and slightly warmer on Tuesday west/ increased amts of 
sunshine...highs mainly into the middle 60s at the coast to u60s to 
around 70 f inland. Increasing clouds/moisture on Wednesday as surface high 
drifts off the coast...though bulk of deep moisture and probability of precipitation look 
to hold off until late Wednesday...will maintain 20-40% probability of precipitation in the afternoon 
SW...dry NE. Highs into the middle 60s SW to around 70 f elsewhere. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Sunday/... 
the forecast beginning Wednesday night remains weighted 
toward the wpc/European model (ecmwf) solution which brings low pressure up the southeast 
coast Wednesday night...then deepens the low off the obx on Thursday 
before quickly shoving it well out to sea Thursday night. Based on 
this solution...will maintain slight chance probability of precipitation (20%) north and chance 
probability of precipitation (30-50%) across the south Wednesday night. Will expand chance probability of precipitation 
(30-40%) into northern areas on Thursday with high chance to likely 
probability of precipitation (50-60%) across southern areas (highest far se)...before 
dwindling rain chances from west to east Thursday night as the low 
pulls away. The European model (ecmwf) does bring a piece of northern branch energy 
south into the forecast area Thursday night which may actually linger precipitation chances 
into midday Friday. For now...will cover the possibility with slight 
chance probability of precipitation. Dry weather then returns later Friday into next weekend as high 
pressure prevails. Lows generally in the 40s to low 50s through the 
period. Highs mainly in the 60s Thu/Fri...except some upper 50s 
immediate coastal locales. (Normal highs are in the low/middle 70s.) 
Highs then warm into the middle/upper 60s at the coast to middle/upper 70s 
inland by next weekend. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Sunday through Friday/... 
as of 17z...the main cloud band has pushed south into southern VA/NC. Broken 
stratocu has developed north of the band. North winds of 5 to 10 knots are 
forecast with higher winds at ecg. 


The sky should become mostly clear around sunset. With winds 
becoming calm or light during the evening...cannot rule out patchy 
fog. An upper level trough approaches from the north...middle level 
clouds and a slight increase in winds toward sunrise would limit 
fog. NAM bufr soundings do not suggest fog except at ecg. Confidence 
was too low to include mention with the 18z issuance. 


VFR conds are expected Monday. There is a slight chance for showers at 
sby Monday afternoon. 


Outlook...dry weather is forecast through Wednesday. An upper level 
low moves out of the southwestern states and eventually develops a 
surface low over the Gulf of Mexico. This low intensifies off the 
Carolina coast and may produce precipitation Wednesday night through Thursday 
evening. The main impact will be over southern portions. IFR conds 
are possible. Dry weather returns Friday. 


&& 


Marine... 
Small Craft Advisory remains in place through this evening for anz658 with seas 
out around 20 nm around 5 feet. 


High pressure noses into the region tonight through midday Monday for 
relatively light north-northwest winds. Low pressure over New England will 
bring an increase in wind speeds to the local area late Monday through 
Tuesday morning. Small Craft Advisory conditions are expected on all the waters during 
this time. Waves will build to 3-4 feet on the Bay Monday night...with 
seas building to 4-5 feet on the ocean. Conditions improve Tuesday afternoon 
through Wednesday night. Another round of Small Craft Advisory conditions is likely for all 
waters Thursday/Friday as low pressure moves up the coast. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory from 7 PM Monday to 10 am EDT Tuesday for 
anz635>638. 
Small Craft Advisory from 4 PM Monday to 1 PM EDT Tuesday for
