NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
119 am EST Sat Feb 13 2016 


Synopsis... 
a cold front crosses the area early this morning. Arctic high 
pressure builds in for the upcoming weekend...resulting in the 
coldest temperatures so far this year. Low pressure lifts from the 
deep south into the middle Atlantic region early next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am this morning/... 
per current radar trends...added scattered flurries to grids next several hours 
as Arctic boundary pushes across the region. Northwest winds increase to 10 to 
20 miles per hour with gusts 25 to 30 miles per hour coastal areas and the Eastern Shore. 
Decreasing cloudiness SW to NE late. Lows in the teens to l20s. Wind chills 
will drop into the single digits. 


&& 


Short term /6 am this morning through Monday/... 
deep upper trough locates over New England into the Middle-Atlantic 
States Sat as the Arctic boundary pushes offshore. Polar front 
prognosticated to remain north of the local area. The Arctic high builds 
into the Ohio Valley late Sat...ushering in some of the coldest air of 
the season. 850 mb temperatures plummet to around -18 to -20c (-2 to -3 Standard 
dev). Highs only forecast in the middle/upper 20s inland to low 30s southeast. 
Windy...with northwest winds generally 15 to 25 miles per hour with gusts 30 to 
35 miles per hour. Gusts over the Eastern Shore and coastal areas expected to 
reach 40 miles per hour. While the air mass remains very dry (dewpoints below 
0)...Bay streamers and light snow showers are possible over the Eastern 
Shore. Will hold onto slight chance probability of precipitation there. Sky averages sunny 
southwest to partly cloudy NE. Large scale confluence in wake of the 
departing upper low will allow high pressure to build into the 
region Sat night. Winds diminish inland...allowing for great 
radiational cooling and lows plunging into the single digits to low 
teens inland to upper teens near the coast. Wind chill values 
generally 0 to 5 above inland and around 5 below Northern Neck to the Eastern 
Shore. Will hold off on Wind Chill Advisory at this time. 


The Arctic high centers over the middle-Atlantic sun...with highs only 
warming into the middle/upper 20s (-2 Standard dev). Sky averages mostly 
sunny with a light New York wind. Middle/upper level clouds begin to increase 
late Sunday as the next storm system approaches. 


The high shifts toward New England Sun night as the next storm 
system develops over the deep south Monday. Northern stream energy lifts 
north of the region Sun night/Monday as a middle level trough tracks 
across the central Continental U.S. Monday. Southwesterly flow aloft will result in 
moisture return into the middle-Atlantic region. Probability of precipitation increase late Sun 
night as the northern stream system weakens and weak isentropic lift 
advects into the region. Air mass will easily be cold enough Sun 
night for all snow as lows Sun night will be in the upper teens to 
around 20. Precipitation chances increase Monday as a coastal trough sharpens 
along the coast and the aforementioned deep south low begins to lift 
northeastward toward the local area. Have increase probability of precipitation to likely across the 
northwest Monday morning...with likely probability of precipitation across all but southeast Virginia/NE NC Monday 
afternoon. Warm air advection aloft/critical thicknesses still indicating a change 
over from snow/ice pellets Monday morning to rain closer to the coast Monday afternoon. 
Ptype likely to remain all snow northwest. There still remains some timing 
and spatial differences in the models...but current snowfall 
forecast calls for 1-2 inches along the Interstate 85 corridor into 
central Virginia and northern Virginia...with 2-4 inches across the northwest counties. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
12/12z numerical models depict low pressure tracking NE from the 
deep south to the southern Appalachians Monday evening...then rapidly 
deepening as it lifts NE into the middle-Atlantic region by midday 
Tuesday as a vigorous upper trough digs across the southern/central 
Appalachians. Thermal profiles suggest mixed precipitation could continue 
into the evening over the Piedmont. Overnight lows should occur in 
the evening...with rising temperatures overnight as the low-level 
flow becomes south-southeast. Colder temperatures will likely persist the 
longest in the far northwest Piedmont counties where some pockets of -fzra 
could continue overnight...but generally all rain is expected by 
early Tuesday morning. Periods of moderate rain are possible late 
Monday night into Tuesday as a band of strong vertical ascent passes 
over the region. Strong pressure falls could produce a modestly 
strong southerly wind across the eastern third of the area for a 3-6hr 
period Tuesday. Temperatures warm to at least the middle/upper 50s 
across the eastern half of the area Tuesday...with low 60s possible 
along the coast...while the Piedmont struggles to rise above the 
upper 40s/low 50s. Generally expecting drier conditions by Tuesday 
night...although some 20-30% probability of precipitation will linger across the north as a 
secondary trough swings across the northern mid-Atlantic. Dry and mild 
Wednesday under west-northwest flow with highs in the upper 40s to middle 50s. A 
cold front tracks across the area Wednesday night...followed by 
Canadian high pressure Thursday. This should push temperatures below 
normal...but within -1 St dev. A moderating trend commences late 
week as high pressure moves offshore and low pressure tracks through 
the Great Lakes. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
plenty of cloudiness across the area as low pressure moves well 
offshore and the base of an upper trough swings across the region. 
Modified Arctic high pressure builds into the Midwest the rest of 
tonight into Saturday with a much colder airmass filtering into 
the middle Atlantic region during this time. Temperature and pressure 
gradients will result in northwest winds becoming breezy from northwest to southeast 
the rest of tonight...becoming gusty after 13/1100z and continuing 
through the rest of Saturday. Inland winds averaging 15kt with 
gusts up to 20-25kt...along the coast winds will average 20-25kt 
with gusts up to 30-35kt. Skies remain mostly cloudy and then 
start to break up around sunset. Surface high finally builds into the 
region by Sun morning...however northwest winds will be slow to diminish 
overnight (especially along the immediate coast) due to a very 
gradual relaxing of the temperature/pressure gradient. 


High pressure dominates on Sunday with dry weather...generally light 
winds...and VFR conditions. Next complex weather system begins to 
impact the area late Sunday night. Plenty of cold air in place for 
precipitation to begin as all snow Sunday night into Monday morning. 
However...a deepening low moving in from the SW is expected to 
pull warmer air into the region. This will complicate precipitation 
forecast...especially across central Virginia where colder air may linger 
at the surface. Could see a wintry mix northwest half of forecast area and a 
changeover to all rain across the southeast. Regardless of precipitation 
type...expect ceiling/visible reductions once precipitation begins Sunday night 
and continuing into Tuesday. A break in precipitation and flight 
restrictions is anticipated Tuesday night but could be short- 
lived. Another weather disturbance may brush across northern Virginia and the 
Maryland lower Eastern Shore Wednesday morning but impacts are not 
anticipated at local taf sites at the moment. 


&& 


Marine... 
10 PM update...began marine headlines with 10 PM issuance. Small Craft Advisory 
conditions to begin across northern waters in the ballpark of 400 am... 
with winds increasing rapidly to gale force gusts from north to 
south around sunrise. 


Previous discussion... 
low pressure is tracking east-northeast off the NC coast this afternoon. 
Meanwhile...another area of low pressure is tracking across the 
eastern lakes...with an Arctic cold front trailing through the Ohio 
Valley...and Arctic high pressure spilling into the upper Midwest. 
The coastal low will bring a period of snow...which will reduce visibility 
late this afternoon and evening (mainly s). As the low lifts to 
the NE tonight the Arctic cold front will pass across the region 
with strong cold air advection developing late tonight...and continuing through 
Saturday into Saturday night as the Arctic high builds in from the 
northwest. A northwest wind will average 25-30kt with frequent gusts of 35-40kt 
over the ocean and Bay. Seas build to 5-8ft with 4-5 feet waves in 
the Bay. Gale flags continue for late tonight through Saturday 
night. For the rivers and sound...wind speeds remain capped at 
high-end Small Craft Advisory at this time. Freezing spray is expected as 
temperatures plummet Saturday and especially Saturday night/Sunday 
morning...with a freezing spray advisory in effect for Saturday 
night into Sunday morning. The wind will diminish Sunday into 
Sunday night as the high settles across the area. Low pressure 
approaches form the SW early next week...and tracks up the 
Piedmont Tuesday. This will allow for a modestly strong south-southeast wind 
and building seas/waves. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
strong northwest flow associated with an Arctic cold front will produce 
blow-out tides / low water advisories for some areas early 
Saturday morning...and much of the coastlines Saturday afternoon 
and night. The main areas early Saturday morning that could have 
low water are along the Atlantic coast north of Cape Charles. A low 
water advisory has been issued from 08-13z (3 to 8 am).
