NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
645 am EST Friday Mar 6 2015 


Synopsis... 
Arctic high pressure will settle over the middle Atlantic today and 
tonight. High pressure then shifts offshore over the weekend 
bringing a steady moderating trend through early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
the current surface analysis shows a large sprawling area of Arctic 
high pressure extending from Texas through New England...and building 
into the mid-Atlantic. Temperatures have dropped into the middle/upper 
teens over western/northern portions...with low/middle 20s for central and southeast 
portions. Temperatures will continue to drop through sunrise...and 
when combined with a 10-15mph northerly wind will result in wind 
chills from zero to 10 above. There is still some SC lingering over 
southeast Virginia/NE NC and perhaps a few flurries...but this push offshore by 7 
am. Otherwise...expect a sunny cold day with Arctic high pressure 
overhead. The presence of an Arctic inversion will limit 
mixing...and highs will struggle to reach 30-35f (about -2 St dev) 
despite early March solar insolation. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday/... 
Arctic high pressure remains along the coast tonight. This will 
allow for a clear and unseasonably cold night. Many locations will 
experience lows in the low/middle teens...which again are nearly -2 St 
dev from the seasonal mean. 


Increasing zonal flow this weekend will push the Arctic high well 
offshore. Additionally any northern stream systems will stay well north of 
the middle Atlantic. SW low-level flow will result in a substantial 
moderating trend...with temperatures returning to seasonal normals 
by Sunday. Highs Saturday range from the middle 40s to low 50s over 
interior Virginia and NE NC...with low/middle 40s over the Eastern Shore and 
coastal southeast Virginia/NE NC. Highs Sunday should rise into the middle/upper 
50s...with locally cooler readings along the immediate Atlantic 
coast. Lows Saturday morning should be milder and range from the 
upper 20s to middle 30s. Sky cover should generally remain mostly 
clear/sunny...with occasional high clouds streaming across the north. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
going with a blend of the 12z GFS/CMC/ECMWF for the extended 
period...and these models are very similar. More of a split/zonal 
pattern will affect the central/eastern U.S. During this period 
resulting in near or slightly above normal temperatures across the forecast area. 
A weak cold front will move across the region Sun night into Monday morng 
possibly triggering isolated rain showers. Monday night into Tuesday night...surface 
hi pressure will be sliding across extreme northern portions of the 
region...while weak low pressure will be moving from the Gulf of Mexico 
east-northeast and off the southeast CST. As a result...some deeper low level moisture 
will lift nwrd into at least southern portions of the area. 00z 
GFS/CMC/ECMWF each trended northward with this systm...so probability of precipitation have been 
trended upward to 30-40% north to 40-50% S. Otherwise...mainly dry 
weather...except for maybe slight chance over NE NC counties...for Wednesday afternoon 
through Thursday as hi pressure builds farther S. Min temperatures will range from the 
middle 30s to lower 40s...and maximum temperatures will range from the middle 40s to 
upper 50s Monday and Tuesday...and in the middle 50s to lower 60s Wednesday and Thursday. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Friday through Tuesday/... 
as of 11z...VFR conds are found at all taf sites...with some 
clouds near 3k feet coming off the Bay near korf at this time. This may continue 
through middle morng before skies become sunny...as they already are 
across much of the area. Otws...northerly winds remain breezy this morng 
as surface hi pressure builds in from the west. The winds will diminish this afternoon 
and especially tonight as the hi slides into the middle Atlantic. Dry weather 
and VFR conds expected through the weekend with the hi remaining in 
the vicinity. There will be a chance of rain Monday night/Tuesday with 
the next low pressure systm. 


&& 


Marine... 
a cold front and associated low pressure pushes farther offshore today as 
surface hi pressure builds in from the west. North winds remain rather strong this 
morng...with gale conds continuing through 7 am for southern coastal waters and 
the sound...and Small Craft Advisory elsewhere. Waves over the Bay will be 3-5 
feet...with seas over coastal waters at 6-10 feet. A hi surf advisory also 
remains in effect until 10 am for Outer Banks Currituck due to 
nearshore waves at or above 8 feet. All marine headlines end during the day 
today as winds/waves/seas decrease as the hi builds in. Seas over southern 
coastal waters may remain at or above 5 feet through this eveng. Benign marine conds 
expected during the weekend with the hi remaining in the vicinity 
and slowly sliding offshore. The next low pressure systm affects the 
region Monday night into Tuesday. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
precipitation and melting snow will cause many area river levels 
will rise significantly during the next few days. Some reaching 
three quarters bankfull or higher. The James River at Richmond 
Westham is forecast to go into minor flood on Saturday morning.
