NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
145 PM EDT Thursday Aug 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
a frontal boundary remains nearly stationary across the area into 
the upcoming weekend. High pressure from New England is slow to 
build over the region from Sunday into early next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
warm front has stalled over the forecast area...and will remain nearly stationary 
today. Expect vrb clouds to pcldy again today as morning fog/stratus 
dissipates. Most of the day expected to be precipitation free. 
Heating...modest dewpoints (for middle aug) and convergence in vicinity of 
stalled frontal boundary (ovr interior portions of fa) expected to result 
in isolated to possibly scattered convection by lt this aftn/eve. Weakening 
short wave from the west-northwest may bring convection into far west-northwest areas lt in the 
day as well. Hi temperatures from the m80s at the CST...to the u80s to l90s 
inland. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Saturday/... 
northwest flow aloft remains from tonight into the weekend...W/ series of weak impulses 
passing through the region. Initial impulse (wkng S/w) may keep at 
least isolated convection over the forecast area tonight. A 2nd weak short wave pushes 
through the forecast area on Friday will ptntl for additional isolated/scattered 
convection by afternoon/evening hours. 


A more vigorous wave drops across the region Friday night into Sat as 
surface boundary remains over the forecast area. This should provide best chance of and 
greatest areal coverage of showers/thunderstorms across the local area 
during the short-term period due to more favorable/stronger upper 
jet support. High pressure build over New England Saturday begins 
to push S toward mdatlc region by lt in the day. This will push the 
remnant front back S of the area. 


Hi temperatures Friday mainly in the M/u80s Friday...then from the l/m80s on Sat 
(psbly u70s along the Atlantic beaches on the eastern shore). Low temperatures mainly 
be in the u60s to l70s Friday and Saturday mornings. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Thursday/... 
decreasing chances for precipitation and near seasonable...late Summer 
temperatures expected through the extended period forecast. 


Upper flow continues to be dominated by building high pressure over 
the central Continental U.S. And low pressure/troughing off the NE coast. Flow 
remains blocked over eastern Canada and the northestern US...resulting in 
little progression of the central Continental U.S. Ridge through the period. The 
result will be ongoing northwesterly flow into the early period. Backdoor 
front will push well south of the local area sun as the trough 
amplifies along the eastern Seaboard. Latest model guidance has trended 
slightly wetter sun after previously bringing in drier air behind 
the front. Surface high pressure over the NE states will ridge southward over 
the local area in wake of the front...with subsidence indicated in 
model soundings. Moisture also looks to be on the downtrend as model 
derived precipitable waters  drop below 1.5 inches. With that said...sun may end up 
being dry...but will retain slight chance probability of precipitation over the Piedmont and 
coastal areas as disturbances in northwesterly flow and model uncertainty 
decrease confidence. Better confidence in dry conditions heading 
into early next week as the central Continental U.S. High begins to nudge in from 
the west and subsidence aloft wins out. Best moisture also gets 
shunted to the south and west. Trend continues into Tuesday and Wednesday as 
high pressure builds overhead and dry air and subsidence win out. 


Onshore flow and low-level thicknesses yield daytime temperatures generally 
in the upper 70s to lower 80s through Tuesday (-1 Standard dev for this time of 
year). Return flow on Wednesday and warming thicknesses push temperatures back 
into the middle 80s. Lows generally in the low-middle 60s through the period 
as dewpoints remain in the low-middle 60s. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Thursday through Tuesday/... 
a weak frontal boundary is over the northeast part of the area. 
A stronger front will move into the middle Atlantic tonight and 
Friday. These fronts combined with a moist air mass will trigger 
scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon through Friday. 
Thunderstorms are expected to be more numerous on Friday. With a 
sea breeze and a weak frontal boundary over the eastern part of 
the area this afternoon will have scattered thunderstorms develop. 
Very difficult to time these but these should end by around 00z. 
Out to the west several mesoscale convective systems are moving 
toward the area. These shoudl diminish as they cross the mountain 
but could still trigger a shower or thunderstorm near kric this 
evening. The thunderstorms to the west will produce plenty of middle 
level clouds across the area tonight. This should prevent any wide 
spread fog from forming. The best chance for thunderstorms will 
develop Friday afternoon and evening across all taf sites. Expect 
clearing weather for the weekend with VFR conditions returning. 
Winds will be very light through Friday with mainly some east 
winds near the coast and southwest inland. All areas will switch 
to north or northeast by Saturday. 


&& 


Marine... 
no headlines necessary with this forecast package. A stationary front will 
remain just inland today over the middle Atlantic region. This will lead 
to light winds over all waters (aob 10 kt) out of the S/se. Expect mainly 
2 feet seas (3 feet this morng out 20nm). The front stalls over the waters 
tonight as a wave of low pressure develops along the front...veering winds 
behind the low to average out of the north on Friday. Hi pressure over the NE states 
ridges southward over the waters Friday night into Sat as low pressure pushes off the 
NC coast. A strengthening pressure gradient will result in increasing 
northeasterly winds over the cstal waters late Friday night through Sat. Hi pressure 
remains anchored off the NE CST through Erly next week resulting in 
persistent onshore flow. At this time...speeds appear to remain 
sub-sca...but seas are forecast to build to 4-5 feet late Sat through 
Monday.
