NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
126 PM EST Wednesday Jan 28 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure slowly builds east into the middle Atlantic region 
through tonight. The high slides offshore Thursday...before a 
cold front crosses the area Thursday night. Cold high pressure 
then returns for late Friday into Saturday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest weather analysis reveals strong coastal low (~989mb) lifting 
into the Gulf of Maine/Bay of Fundy area towards Atlantic Canada 
at sunrise this morning. To the west, ~1027mb surface high pressure 
continues to drift east over the Ohio Valley, and is forecast 
build across the local area today into tonight. Did nudge 
temperatures up slightly early this morning with winds keeping 
temperatures up above guidance, but do expect winds to drop off briefly 
just before dawn...and in the dry airmass in place, expect 
readings to drop off quickly just before sunrise. Thickness tools 
mesh well with the going forecast, with expected highs today in 
the lower to middle 40s across much of the area, with slightly 
cooler upper 30s over the Eastern Shore. Conditions will remain a bit 
breezy through the aftn, with northerly winds avgg 15-20 miles per hour 
(gusts to 25) along the coast, 5-10 miles per hour inland. This will keep 
wind chills in the 30s through the day for most despite a sunny to 
mostly sunny Sky. High pressure moves overhead tonight/early 
Thursday. Clear skies and light winds should yield good radiating 
conditions and a colder night tonight. Early morning lows Thursday 
morning 15 to 20 inland to lower to middle 20s along the coast. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday night/... 
high pressure pushes offshore Thursday morning, allowing southerly 
flow to return ahead of northern stream short wave and associated 
cold front. Not much moisture for the system to work with as it 
crosses the Ohio Valley towards the central Appalachians Thursday 
afternoon/evening, owing to downslope flow across the region. Thus, have 
kept a dry forecast for most of the area on Thursday...with only a slight 
chance to low chance (20-30%) chance for some passing rain showers, mainly 
along and north of the Richmond metropolitan area. Any rain showers late Thursday 
afternoon/evening would be brief, with quantitative precipitation forecast on the order of a few 
hundredths at best. 00z/28 data is also a bit quicker to dry out 
any precipitation over the Eastern Shore, so will go with rn/snow late Thursday 
night and lower probability of precipitation after midnight. For highs, pre-frontal SW flow 
yields a modest and short lived warm up on Thu, with highs into 
the middle to upper 40s (warmest I-85/US-1 corridor). Associated surface 
cold front crosses the area late Thursday night/Friday morning, ushering 
in a sharply colder and drier airmass for Friday into the weekend. 
Look for brisk winds out of the northwest through the day on Friday into 
Friday night to yield wind chills in the 20s during the day Friday 
and into the low teens Friday night (single digits to near zero on 
the lower eastern shore). 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
northern stream remains active during the extended period with below 
normal temperatures prevailing. Trough exits the coast Friday night/Sat 
morning...as cold Canadian high pressure continues to build over 
the middle-Atlantic during the day Sat. The result will be mostly 
sunny skies and temperatures in the low-middle 30s. 850 mb temperatures prognosticated to be 
around -10c (-1 Standard dev). Thereafter...models in good agreement 
now with pushing the surface high offshore sun as the next northern stream 
shortwave digs into the southern states. Associated surface low 
prognosticated to lift from the lower MS valley northeastward over the central 
Appalachians sun...and north of the region Sun night. Trailing 
cold front prognosticated to cross the region Sun night. Deep 850 mb trough 
expected to advect moisture northward from the eastern Gulf into the region 
in advance of the front. Combined with height falls and increasing 
winds aloft...widespread precipitation is expected to overspread much of 
the area late sun into Sun night. Return flow will warm temperatures into 
the low-middle 40s (possibly warmer) sun...with the coldest air 
remaining over the Great Lakes region. The result will be 
predominately rain...but a brief rain/snow mix is possible at the 
onset as warm air advection kicks in. However...no accumulation is expected. All 
rain late sun-Sun night...with a possible change over across the 
northern zones late Sat night as cold air punches into the region. Westerly 
push behind the shortwave will result in drying conditions Monday- 
Tuesday as cold Canadian high pressure builds in from the northwest. By 
Tuesday...temperatures forecast to be back into the middle-upper 30s. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Wednesday through Monday/... 
surface high pressure is building in from the northwest this afternoon 
under a clear sky. A northwest wind is averaging 10-15kt...with gusts up 
to 20kt closer to the coast. Surface high pressure settles over 
the region tonight resulting in a clear sky and calm to very light 
wind. High pressure moves offshore Thursday as a cold front 
approaches from the northwest. The wind will become southerly along with 
an increase in high clouds. The cold front will cross the area 
Thursday night with only a slight chance of -shra along and north of a 
ric-sby line...and perhaps precipitation ending as a mix of -rasn at sby. 
A gusty northwest wind is expected Friday as Canadian high pressure 
builds in from the northwest. That area of high pressure slides across 
the region Friday night and Saturday...with a more moist frontal 
system impacting the region Sunday into Monday. 


&& 


Marine... 
update to remove the rivers from the Small Craft Advisory. Otherwise...the 
remaining flags remain as is. 


Previous discussion... 
coastal low located off the Maine and Nova Scotia coasts will push 
out to sea today as high pressure builds into the region today. 
There is still just enough of a pressure gradient between these 
systems to keep breezy northwest winds over the waters today through this 
evening. Speeds will average 15-25kt. Gusts up to 30kt will 
persist on the Bay through this morning...and on the coastal 
waters all day. Seas currently range from 5-8ft north to 7-10ft 
south and are expected to slowly subside today into tonight... 
dropping below 5ft late tonight. Waves of 3-5ft will also subside 
to 3-4ft through today...dropping to 2-3ft by late this evening. 
Small Craft Advisory flags remain in effect through this evening. 


High pressure moves over the waters tonight...allowing winds to 
diminish at or below 15kt as the pressure gradient finally relaxes. The 
high gets shunted over the southeast coast Thursday as a clipper system 
approaches the middle Atlantic region. The cold front associated with 
the clipper is expected to cross the waters late Thursday night. A 
substantial increase in wind speeds should be anticipated 
primarily during Friday/Friday night as a cold Canadian airmass gets 
pulled over the waters by the departing low and a Canadian high 
building into the region. Models have trended colder with regard 
to the airmass temperatures thus resulting in stronger cold air advection 
processes. Since models tend to undercut wind speeds in these 
situations...decided to go above guidance which puts the waters 
within potentially solid gale conditions (except rivers/sound) 
Friday/Friday night. Northwest winds would average 20-25kt with gusts of 
35-40kt. Seas/waves also expected to build quickly once the wind 
surge begins. Seas could reach 7-10ft...waves could reach 4-6ft. 
Will need to keep a close eye on model trends for potential 
headlines in the Post-frontal environment. Regardless of strength... 
conditions will begin to subside/diminish Sat night as the 
Canadian high slides directly over the waters. A southern stream 
low pressure system is anticipated to track into the area from the 
southwest late sun into Monday.
