NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
142 PM EDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure centered over New England will slowly push off to 
the Canadian Maritimes this afternoon through Friday...maintaining 
a cool northeast flow across the local area. A slow moving low 
pressure system will persist off the southeast coast over the 
weekend...as high pressure builds south from the Great Lakes. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
surface analysis reveals a strong high over Maine (1045 mb at Bangor 
at 14z) ridging south into the middle Atlantic. Most of the area had a 
clear sky. Stratocumulus covered the lower Maryland Eastern Shore 
and high thin clouds were slowly increasing from the south. 


Expect some increase in cloudiness toward the coast but most of 
the region will be mostly sunny under the dominance of high 
pressure. High temperatures are forecast to reach 55 to 60 well 
inland with 50 to 55 near the coast. The beaches of the lower 
Eastern Shore may stay below 50. 


For tonight...trends in models suggest a bit less in the way of 
cloud cover. Airmass will continue to modify so even with a 
mainly clear sky expect little or no freezing temperatures. Lows 
inland mainly 35-40 f...40-45 f near the coast. Will assess the 
potential for patchy frost in rural areas west of Interstate 95 
with the afternoon forecast. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Saturday/... 
models agree with trough pushing a bit closer to the local area 
(associated with a surface low over Georgia/fl) Friday into early Sat. In middle 
levels this is in association with some southern stream energy moving 
along across the southern US. This energy is not well handled by 
any of the models, so plenty of uncertainty remains. For now, have 
leaned more toward the drier NAM/European model (ecmwf) (gfs is an outlier in 
bringing deeper moisture into southern portions of the County Warning Area Friday 
night/sat). Still...will bring slight chance probability of precipitation in for Friday night 
over the southern/southeast 1/3 of the area, with chance probability of precipitation over parts 
of northeast North Carolina. 


Temperatures will slowly moderate through the period. Generally 
followed MOS guidance, which keeps most mins in the 40s Thursday 
night and highs on Friday back into the upper 50s to lower 60s. 
By Sat afternoon all models agree on a weak front crossing the area 
with high pressure rebuilding from the west. This will clear the 
skies across the area as it pushes the trough farther off the 
coast. Lows Friday night will be in the 40s with high temperatures 
on Saturday getting back to the middle 60s southeast to around 70 f northwest. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
a long area of high pressure moving across southeast Canada will 
extend into the eastern Great Lakes and Ohio/Tennessee valleys Sat night. 
Meanwhile...a coastal low off the southeast coast is now expected 
to stay shunted well south of the area Sat night and then track NE 
well off the Carolina coast through sun. The stretched out surface 
high and associated middle/upper ridging will pass over the middle 
Atlantic region sun into early Monday. The surface high then slides off 
the coast during the day as the middle/upper ridging flattens. A 
relatively flat (west to east oriented) frontal boundary sags down 
into the area Monday night into Tuesday...moving offshore by Wednesday morning. 
Weak shortwave energy and a subsequent surface low traveling along 
this boundary may bring another shot of precipitation to the area 
on Mon/Tue. GFS precipitation-generation and general movement continues 
to be aggressive/fast versus the European model (ecmwf). Have therefore tried to 
split the difference with the pop forecast...leaning toward slightly 
slower timing to the onset of precipitation Monday night and limiting 
overall coverage on Tuesday to no higher than 40 percent. 


Temperatures are expected to be straight-forward Sat night through 
Sun night as high pressure crosses the region. Expect lows near 
normal both nights in the 40s (lower 50s possible immediate southeast Virginia/NE 
NC coasts). Highs Sat/sun range from roughly 65 degrees far NE to 70 
degrees SW. As the flat frontal boundary starts to sag into the Middle 
Atlantic States Monday through Wednesday...the temperature forecast becomes tricky 
in regard to where exactly the warm sector develops. With precipitation 
expected to move into the area at some point Monday night...increasing 
cirrus during the day Monday should keep high temperatures in the upper 60s 
west of I-95 with warmer temperatures in the lower 70s east of I-95 
(mid-upper 60s Maryland/Virginia eastern shore). Highs Tuesday should be in the 
low-middle 70s inland and in the upper 60s near the immediate ches 
Bay and Atlantic coasts. The warming trend continues with highs 
on Wednesday in the middle 70s inland to upper 60s at the immediate coast. 
Low temperatures areawide on Monday/Tue/Wed nights should also be 
warm with readings in the 50s (or about 10 degrees above normal). 


&& 


Aviation /18z Thursday through Tuesday/... 
high pressure centered over the Canadian Maritimes and a trough of 
low pressure off the southeast coast are combining to keep winds 
from the northeast. Winds from 950 to 850 mb are becoming more 
east and can see the clouds working back into the coast line now. 
The BUFKIT soundings also show these clouds returning. Using the 
experimental GOES MVFR probability images can see the probability 
of clouds being MVFR increasing over the ocean. At this time do 
not believe ceilings will drop into the IFR range. However the sref 
probabilities do show some chance especially over the most Easter 
terminals for the period from late tonight into Friday morning. 
None of the statistical guidance supports anything but VFR 
conditions. All models show similar timing on the clouds arriving 
and will bring broken MVFR ceilings to all but ric during the evening 
and reaching ric after midnight. Will gradually mix out the 
moisture on Friday with clouds lifting to VFR from the west to the 
east during the morning. 


Outlook...due to continued rather strong hi pressure over New England 
and the Canadian Maritimes...the chance for MVFR conditions will 
return Friday night...especially across southeast portions. There will also be a chance 
for showers Friday night. Also still plenty of uncertainty for 
conditions on Saturday as a low moves across the southeast US but 
by Sunday should be VFR. 


&& 


Marine... 
winds over the rivers have dropped to 10 to 15 kts. Over the Bay 
and coast winds continue 15 to 20 kts. Small Craft Advisory flags remain in effect 
through this afternoon for northern ches Bay zones...and through this evening 
for the southern ches Bay. Hi pressure will slide across New England and into 
the Canadian Maritimes today through Friday...maintaining NE winds over 
the waters. The persistent onshore flow will cause seas to remain at 
or above 5 feet for all coastal waters through at least late Friday night. Friday 
night through Monday...low pressure will track across Florida...then east-northeast well off 
the middle Atlantic CST. While...hi pressure will build from the northern Great Lakes 
ewrd across New England and off the CST. This scenario will maintain 
generally north or NE winds 10 to 15 knots across the waters Friday night through 
Monday.
