NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
121 am EST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will track up the East Coast late tonight through 
Wednesday. This area of low pressure departs to the northeast 
Wednesday night. A secondary low tracks across the region early 
Thanksgiving day...before high pressure builds in from the west 
later Thursday into Friday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am this morning/... 
the latest GOES WV imagery continues to feature a moist frontal 
band in place over the east central Gulf Coast, ascending the southeast 
coast towards the local area. Aloft, a strong trough is digging 
across the lower MS valley...with a 160kt jet downstream extending 
from the deep south through Atlantic Canada. Strong lift in the 
rrq of the jet is in vicinity of the moist frontal band...which 
is triggering widespread convection from the Gulf...NE across 
North Florida...and over the Gulf Stream. At the surface...a ~1011mb low 
continues to develop over the NE Gulf...with an inverted trough 
extending NE along the coast. 


Regional radar mosaic now showing broader area of showers 
streaming north along a line from tlh to clt to rdu this 
evening, with some light rain/dz persisting along the far southeast corner 
of the local area in vicinity of the Albemarle Sound. Expect showers to 
become more widespread over the akq County Warning Area over southern half of the 
akq County Warning Area over the next few hours as surface low pressure becomes 
further organized and begins to track NE along the inverted trough 
axis overnight. Showers will be enhanced by persistent/strengthening 
band of middle-level (700mb) frontogenesis which will also slowly 
lifts north into Wednesday morning. RUC/hrrr still depicting ~1008mb surface 
low reaching near Cape Hatteras by 12z Wed, and should see showers 
over most of the County Warning Area by that time. Bufr soundings continue to show 
thermal profile that easily support rain through the night. In 
fact, went ahead and bumped minima up a degree or two overnight 
per latest observations. Temperatures will remain stable/rise slightly 
over the far southeast. Farther inland, still expect temperatures to slowly 
fall into the lower to middle 40s by daybreak. 


&& 


Short term /6 am this morning through Friday/... 
moderate to occasionally heavy precipitation should continue Wednesday morning 
as moisture remains deep and forcing remains strong. While cold air advection 
remains rather weak...dynamical cooling should drive temperatures 
down into the low/middle 30s over the northwest Piedmont counties through 
Wednesday morning...with upper 30s/low 40s elsewhere. Given the track of 
the surface/850mb low and climatology the most likely locations to 
receive accumulating snow would be across the far northwest Piedmont 
counties. At this time, snow accumulation should be around or less 
than one inch over Louisa/Fluvanna...with the bordering counties 
experiencing little to no accumulation. Any accumulation should 
remain on the grass and other non-paved surfaces, so no advisory 
is necessary. Moisture Shallows Wednesday afternoon...so precipitation 
should steadily lessen in intensity before ending late Wednesday 
afternoon/early evening. Locations that change to snow could 
actually Switch Back over to -ra as the intensity wanes. Total quantitative precipitation forecast 
amounts should range from 2.0-2.5in over southeast Virginia/NE NC...to 
1.0-1.5in elsewhere. 


A brief lull is expected Wednesday night...before a secondary clipper-type 
system dives across the region late Wednesday night/early Thanksgiving 
day. This will bring a chance of -shra or -shsn (or a mix thereof) to 
portions of central and eastern Virginia. Localized light snow accumulation is 
possible...but again should only be on the grass and other non-paved 
surfaces. High pressure builds in from the west by afternoon with 
partial clearing expected from W-E. Morning lows should range from 
around 30 northwest...to the middle 30s southeast...followed by highs in the 
middle/upper 40s. 


High pressure prevails Thursday night into Friday bringing mostly 
clear/sunny conditions. Low temperatures Thursday night should fall 
into the middle 20s to low 30s...followed by highs in the low/middle 40s 
Friday. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
going with a blend of the 12z/25 GFS/European model (ecmwf) for the extended 
period. Will have a mainly dry forecast for the region with milder 
temperatures expected for sun and Monday. Hi pressure will settle off the middle 
Atlantic and southeast CST for Sat into Monday. A backdoor front will drop across 
the area Monday afternoon/night with some cloudiness and maybe isolated precipitation. 
The center of hi pressure will build across New England on Tuesday. Maximum temperatures 
will be in the upper 40s to middle 50s Sat...in the lower to middle 60s 
sun and Monday...and in the upper 40s to upper 50s Tuesday. Min temperatures will 
be in the middle 20s to middle 30s Sat morng...in the upper 30s to lower 40s 
sun morng...in the 40s Monday morng...and in the middle 30s to middle 40s 
Tuesday morng. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
low pressure moving up the coast will bring a decent slug of 
precipitation to the local area overnight and Wednesday. Ceilings 
will lower to IFR/LIFR overnight through much of Wednesday at all 
taf sites. Colder air wrapping around the coastal low may allow 
for a brief period of -rasn Wednesday afternoon/evening northwest of kric. 
Gusty north-northwest winds develop later this morning and average 
10-20kt with higher gusts of 25-35kt likely at the immediate 
coast. Winds are expected to diminish from west to east through 
Wednesday evening. 


A brief reprieve in adverse conditions should be anticipated late 
Wednesday evening and overnight...however a secondary low pressure system 
should bring another round of precipitation to the area early 
Thursday morning through early afternoon before moving off the coast 
and dissipating. Colder temperatures in place will support a little better 
chance for -sn or -rasn along and northwest of a general line from ksby- 
kric-kfvx. Visibilities should improve much faster than ceilings...which 
are then expected to improve/lift/break-up by Thursday evening. 


&& 


Marine... 
low pressure will intensify as it moves from the eastern Gulf of Mexico NE 
alng or just off the east CST overnight into Wednesday night. Data supportive 
of gale force gusts over coastal waters (up to 40 kts) and southern ches 
Bay/Currituck sand (35 kts) Wednesday. So...will maintain gale warnings for 
these areas during Wednesday...with strong sca's across the Middle Bay and 
rivers. Winds north-NE to start then switch to northwest...as the system 
lifts north of the area Wednesday night. The longer trajectory over the waters 
at the beginning of the event allows seas to build to between 6-10 feet 
(highest out near 20 nm). 


Sca's will likely replace the gales Wednesday night...as the low quickly 
moves NE and away from the area. A brief lull in winds Thursday morng 
before yet another cold air advection surge seen Thursday eveng into Friday morng behind 
upper level low that exits off the CST. Hi pressure builds over the area Friday 
aftn/ngt. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
a coastal flood statement remains in effect for Maryland/Virginia zones adjacent 
to the Atlantic waters and the Lower Bay due to strong north-northeast flow Wednesday 
morning leading to water levels within a few tenths of minor 
flooding thresholds during the late morning/early afternoon high tide 
cycle. Rainfall amounts to 1.50" to 2.50" will also tend to 
exacerbate the flooding to some extent. Will continue to monitor 
closely and a coastal Flood Advisory will be issued if conditions 
warrant. Anomalies should fall off rather quickly later Wednesday/Wednesday 
night as winds turn northwest/offshore so do not expect any additional 
flooding concerns. 


&& 


Equipment... 
the ASOS at Salisbury Maryland is fixed and we are receiving observations. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 5 PM EST this afternoon for
