NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
426 am EDT Tuesday Aug 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front crosses the area this afternoon and evening...then 
stalls over the Carolinas Wednesday into Thursday. This boundary 
moves back north as a warm front Thursday night. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
ongoing convective showers/storms in the Panhandle of Maryland early 
this morning will stay north of the area and continue to track east-northeast 
due to upper level northwest steering flow/jet dynamics associated with a 
cold front. Scattered-broken middle to high level clouds will cross the forecast area 
through the early daylight hours before exiting the area. 


For the rest of today and tonight...middle and upper level troughing 
resides over the NE Continental U.S. From the Great Lakes to New England... 
resulting in westerly flow aloft over the middle Atlantic region. 
Meanwhile...a weak surface trough extends from the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia into the 
NC coastal plain and is expected to shift toward the coast throughout 
the day. Model cross sections and soundings indicate that moisture 
is rather shallow/limited and overall atmospheric lift is weak. 
However...showers and thunderstorms should develop along and east 
of the trough axis as a surface cold front and its associated 
shortwave energy cross this boundary. In addition...the fringe of 
a jet streak is expected to cross the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia region this 
afternoon/evening (60-80kt) thus supporting better chances for 
thunderstorm development across northern counties (mainly north of a 
Louisa-Richmond-Melfa line). With precipitable waters  on the order of 1.00 to 
1.50 inches...quantitative precipitation forecast amounts will be rather light with 0.25 inches or 
less of rainfall anticipated. Temperatures will be slightly warmer 
than Monday as the thermal trough axis nudges farther northward into 
central Virginia today and breezy south-southwest winds promote afternoon mixing. Expect 
highs in the low-middle 90s inland and upper 80s to low 90s at the 
immediate coast. Shower activity should taper off late this 
evening and come to and end along the coast around midnight. High 
pressure starts to build in from the west-northwest late tonight and will 
help to cool overnight temperatures into the upper 60s for far northwestern 
counties. Low-middle 70s inland...mid-upper 70s closer to the coast. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday night/... 
high pressure continues to build into the region from the west-northwest as 
the surface trough gets compressed and the surface cold front becomes more 
east to west oriented across NC. There is even less moisture/lift 
available to work with on Wednesday and anticipate an overall dry 
forecast...with the exception of locations along and south of the 
Virginia/NC where a slight chance of shower/storms will be possible late 
in the afternoon through the evening. Slightly cooler and more 
comfortable with highs in the lower 90s (mid-upper 80s at the 
beaches) and dewpoints in the low-middle 60s inland and upper 60s to 
lower 70s closer to the coast. Lows Wednesday night in the 
middle-upper 60s far northern counties...lower 70s inland...middle 70s at the 
coast. 


The front remains stalled across the Carolinas and possibly far 
southeast Virginia into Thursday. Weak low pressure is expected to develop 
along this boundary and lift a warm front toward the forecast area on Thursday 
night...bringing more widespread showers and thunderstorms to the 
area from the afternoon through the overnight hours. This scenario is 
supported by precipitable waters  increasing toward 2.00 inches Thursday night as 
well as cross sections showing ample (and deeper) atmospheric lift 
as the Theta-E ridge axis builds along the warm frontal feature. 
Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts could be pretty hefty...especially under stronger 
storm cores... with rainfall amounts of 0.30 to 1.00 inches 
possible during this 24 hour period. Cool high temperatures continue on 
Thursday with slightly warmer dewpoints bringing an uptick in 
humidity levels. Expect highs in the middle-upper 80s northwest of Richmond 
to the lower 90s for metropolitan Richmond and locations to the southeast. Lows 
Thursday night could be tricky due to rain-cooled areas. However... 
temperatures are currently expected to range from the upper 60s northwest to 
low-middle 70s southeast. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
unsettled weather to start off the long term period with frequent 
chances of rain due to an upper-level trough over the far eastern Continental U.S. 
And transient shortwave troughs passing through the middle Atlantic region. 
12z GFS/European model (ecmwf) continue to differ on exact timing of precipitation...but for 
now the forecast calls for a 30-40% chance of rain Thursday night through 
Friday night. Drying trend then commences into this weekend as the 
upper-level trough axis pulls offshore and surface hi pressure builds in from the 
west. As for temperatures...highs will range through the 80s every day with 
lows avgg in the middle 60s to lower 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
VFR conds are expected through this morning...too much wind/mixing 
for any fog development. A weak cold front will push into the County Warning Area 
late this afternoon/evening and will produce widely scattered showers 
and thunderstorms (confidence and coverage far too limited to include in 
tafs at this point). The front will push off the coast early Wednesday 
morning and usher in slightly drier conditions with limited 
shower/thunderstorm chances. Weather becomes more unsettled later Thursday into Friday 
as low pressure and its associated cold front affect the area. 


&& 


Marine... 
S/SW winds have increased early this morning...generally average 15-20 knots 
with gusts to 25 knots in the Bay and Virginia/Maryland coastal waters as well as 
the lower James River and Currituck Sound. All Small Craft Advisory headlines 
remain the same for now lasting through 7 am to 1 PM for various 
regions except have raised sca's for the lower James River through 
7 am. Seas average 4-6 feet across northern coastal waters and 3-4 feet over the 
south. Waves in the Bay are likely up to 3 feet in many areas with 
longer fetch in the S/SW flow (stingray pt and 1st Landing buoys 
have a short fetch and are generally reporting 1.5 to 2 ft). 


Surface pressure gradient and low level nocturnal jet influences look 
to weaken by later this morning so should see winds trend down to 
average 10-15 knots and will probably be able to end the headlines. 
However...expect winds to increase again later this afternoon and may 
need another round of sca's for the Bay (or if winds do not drop 
off later this morning dayshift may just extend sca's through the 
aftn/evening). The front drops through the area late tonight...with 
relatively light north/northwest flow Wednesday following the frontal passage. Sub-Small Craft Advisory conds 
then expected into Thursday night...though pattern now suggests the 
presence of a weak warm front lifting through the waters on Friday 
and conditions may approach Small Craft Advisory thresholds for the Bay.
