NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
356 PM EST Monday Feb 8 2016 


Synopsis... 
low pressure well off the North Carolina coast will move farther 
out to sea. Another area of low pressure dives southeast and 
moves across the area tonight into Tuesday morning. The low then 
deepens off the coast as an upper level trough swings through the 
region Tuesday afternoon and evening. High pressure slowly returns 
Wednesday through Friday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Tuesday morning/... 
clouds have been on the increase across the region this afternoon 
as the potent upper low digs south approaching the area. The first 
round of mostly light rain was pushing into the areas SW of 
Richmond...moving northeast toward central Virginia. Expect precipitation coverage 
to increase through 03z as forcing increases from the upper 
shortwave. Models are in good agreement pushing the precipitation across 
the County Warning Area through 09z. The system will be somewhat moisture starved 
so quantitative precipitation forecast amounts will average 0.10" or less except across the Eastern 
Shore/Northern Neck where slightly higher amounts will be possible. 
P-type over Maryland Eastern Shore is tricky as critical thicknesses 
and boundary layer temperatures support a brief rain/snow mix at sby 
west...however as east winds increase warmer air pushes in from 
the ocean changing most of lower Maryland over to rain overnight. We 
could see a longer period of rain/snow mixed in Dorchester Colorado. 
After midnight...the more favorable lift slides offshore and deep 
moisture diminishes. Critical thicknesses do fall to 1300 M across 
central Virginia overnight...but the trend is for limited precipitation during 
this time with just a few scattered to isolated snow showers 
possible by daybreak across central Virginia. Any scattered snow showers 
Tuesday morning should limited mainly north of Richmond and no 
accumulation beyond some light accumulate on elevated surfaces is 
expected. Lows around 30 f across the Piedmont to the middle 30s 
closer to the coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Tuesday morning through Wednesday/... 
first short wave exits to the NE Tuesday with rain/snow showers lingering 
the longest across northestern sections where high chance probability of precipitation will be 
maintained until daybreak with lower probability of precipitation after daybreak. Appears 
there will be a lull in precipitation Tuesday after daybreak for most of 
the region before the next shortwave dives southeast across the area Tuesday 
aftn/evening. This might allow for some partial sunshine through 
the day (mix of clouds/sun)...allowing temperatures to rise to between 
40-45 f. Probability of precipitation return to likely once again across the the northern 
half of the forecast areas Tuesday aftn/evening...this time colder air 
is prognosticated to overspread the County Warning Area...especially by 21z. Not a long- 
lived event...but potential for 1-2" of snow exists across mainly 
areas to the NE of metropolitan Richmond where better lift is 
expected...especially the Northern Neck and Eastern Shore. Lesser 
accumulations <1" possible elsewhere (genly little to no 
accumulation for southern Virginia and NE nc). Partial clearing after 
midnight with diminishing chances for precipitation. Lows m20s west to 
lower 30s along the coast. If a Winter Weather Advisory is needed 
it will be for the Maryland and perhaps the Northern Neck. Have help off 
on the advisory for now due to lack of confidence in one inch of 
some...but if it does occur it would be during times of the Tuesday 
afternoon and evening commute. 


A deep upper level trough prevails across the eastern Continental U.S. On Wednesday as 
strong ridge will persist along the West Coast. Overall...should 
have drier air in place across the region and some subsidence in 
wake of Tuesday night's shortwave that will be exiting off to the 
NE. Still fairly steep lapse rates due to the cold pool aloft so 
expect partly sunny/variably cloudy conds. Kept 20% probability of precipitation for snow 
showers across northestern areas through the morning hours. Otw...pt sunny and 
cold. Highs u30s north to l40s south. 


&& 


Long term... 
an upper level low pressure system will head northeast and away from 
the eastern Continental U.S. Wednesday into Thursday...only to be replaced by a 
strong upper level trough late Friday into the coming weekend. Precipitation 
chances will be limited through the period...although a round of 
snow showers is possible on Friday with an Arctic frontal passage. 
Bay/ocean effect snow showers along the coast will be possible 
Saturday and Sunday as very cold air aloft (-20 to -25 850 mb temps) 
settle in. Although a low confidence forecast at this time...there are some 
indications that low pressure develops along the Carolina coast 
Friday/Friday night which could provide additional moisture for the Arctic 
front to work with. If this ends up being the case...then 
accumulating snow would be possible across a portion of the area 
late in the week. Of more significance at this time is the very cold air 
settling over the region by the weekend. Highs in the 30s Thursday- 
Sat...but then only 20s to maybe low 30s Sunday. Lows temperatures in the 
teens and 20s...with single digits Saturday night. 


&& 


Aviation /21z Monday through Saturday/... 
the region is in between low pressure systems at this time as 
one...off the middle-Atlantic coast exits northeastward and a second one over 
the Great Lakes and Ohio valleys slowly progresses eastward. The 
cold front associated with the second system will swing across the 
Middle-Atlantic States this evening and is expected to produce some 
rain showers as it moves through the area. Ceilings should drop to 
MVFR levels with the front. At this point...the boundary layer 
looks to be warm enough that snow is not an issue. The front 
should clear the coast between 6z and 9z. Initially behind the 
coast...there should be a brief period of clearing before the 
colder air aloft moves into the area Tuesday morning. When the 
colder air arrives...expect some low to middle level cumulus to form. Most 
areas should remain VFR...however...sby could see the lower clouds 
linger especially if the low level flow remains more easterly and 
keeps the low level moisture in place longer. 


Outlooks Tuesday night through Saturday...a strong shortwave 
trough rotating across the Middle-Atlantic States on Tuesday evening 
could produce some MVFR to IFR conditions with snow showers. 
Ric/sby have the best chance to see impacts. The chances for 
impacts from this wave are less from the Virginia Tidewater and areas to 
the south. VFR conditions should prevails Wednesday into Friday as 
strong high pressure builds into the middle-Atlantic region. An 
Alberta clipper type shortwave could impact the region Friday 
night into Saturday with MVFR to IFR conditions...but much 
uncertainty remains with the track of this system. 


&& 


Marine... 
low pressure continues to move well out to sea. Seas will be slow to 
subside until later tonight and Tuesday. Still seeing 4-5 feet waves 
at the mouth of the ches Bay early this afternoon due to high seas 
offshore...so have extended Small Craft Advisory there through 10 PM there. Sca's for 
all coastal waters remain in effect through at least Wednesday morning as it 
will take until then to drop below 5 feet. Another round of Small Craft Advisory 
conditions appear likely late Wednesday and Thursday...as strong northwest winds are 
expected. Gale conditions may be possible by the weekend as some 
very cold air settles over the marine area. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
river flood warnings remain in effect for the Blackwater above 
Franklin...Nottoway at Sebrell...cashie at Windsor. See flsakq for 
details. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
a high surf advisory remains in effect along the entire atl coast 
through this evening as nearshore waves remain elevated...and through Tuesday 
morning for the Eastern Shore. Have extended the coastal Flood 
Advisory for the entire atl coast through this evening's high tide 
cycle as waters levels are expected to reach/near minor flooding 
thresholds. Additional coastal flood statements may be needed across 
the lower ches Bay for this evening's high tide cycle and will issue 
those headlines in the next few hours (if necessary). It's possible 
another round of coastal flood advisories will be necessary for Tuesday 
morning's high tide cycle for the atl coast.
