NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1211 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front approaches from the northwest this afternoon and 
drops into the region tonight. The front then becomes stationary 
over the middle Atlantic through Saturday. Low pressure tracks along 
the front later Thursday into Thursday night...followed by another 
area of low pressure Friday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
current GOES WV imagery shows earlier shortwave trough pushing 
well off to the NE of the local area as of 16z...little in the 
way of cumulus development thus far. There is some haze persisting over 
mainly the southern 1/2 of the forecast area however. While weak shortwave 
ridging is expected to prevail into the afternoon and will keep the 
thermodynamic profile fairly stable...there is the presence of a 
weak surface trough to the Lee of the mountains thus...will carry 20% probability of precipitation 
late (after 20z) over the Piedmont...keeping a dry forecast 
elsewhere through 22z. 850mb temperatures of 16-17c should support 
seasonably warm highs in the upper 80s/around 90 f (with a few of 
the typically hottest spots possibly into the lower 90s). Westerly 
low level flow is bringing a modest reprieve in humidity levels 
(dew points into the Lower- Middle 60s). 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Friday/... 
the cold front sags into the region tonight. Overall...the 00z/01 
NAM is most aggressive with respect to showers/thunderstorms accompanying 
the boundary...while other models are either dry or indicate only 
isolated activity. There is some increase in moisture along the front 
tonight. However...the deeper moisture and stronger forcing will 
remain well west of the region...so will only forecast a 20% pop with 
the boundary. Increasing clouds are expected tonight with low 
temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s. 


The front becomes stationary over the region Thursday. 
Meanwhile...shortwave energy is expected to track into the 
central Appalachians by afternoon. This will develop a wave of low 
pressure over eastern NC as another stronger area of low pressure 
associated with a stronger upper wave locates over the middle MS 
valley. 20-30% probability of precipitation Thursday morning increase to 40-50% probability of precipitation 
Thursday afternoon/ evening over interior Virginia/NE NC...then to ~60% 
over the entire area Thursday night. Precipitable waters  prognosticated to increase to 
2+ inches Thursday night in deep layer SW flow. Anomalous moisture 
in concert with shortwave energy lifting along the front will 
result in periods of moderate to heavy rainfall Thursday night. 


The boundary and anomalous moisture remain over the region Friday 
as the aforementioned middle-MS valley low approaches from the west. 
Another round of likely probability of precipitation will spread across the region through 
the day. Due to recent rainfall (up to 600% of normal this past 
week)...minor flooding is possible and continues to be headlined 
in the severe weather potential statement. 72 hour rainfall totals average between 1.0-1.5 
in...with localized higher amounts expected. 


Forecast highs Thursday and Friday area generally on the low-side 
of guidance as mostly cloudy conditions are expected outside any 
periods of showers/tstms. Highs Thursday range from the low 80s 
northwest...to the upper 80s southeast...followed by highs Friday ranging from 
the upper 70s northwest...to the middle 80s far southeast. Lows should be in the 
upper 60s to low 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
upstream blocking pattern results in little movement of overall 
synoptic features through the Holiday weekend / medium range period. 


Models stall wavy frontal boundary across the middle atlntc region Sat. 
GFS wants to push this boundary into North Carolina sun as weak high 
prs builds into the region from the north while European model (ecmwf) keeps the 
boundary nearly stationary across the region. The boundary prognosticated to lift north 
as a warm front Monday with a trough lingering across the area Tuesday. 
Thus look for chance probability of precipitation each day as timing of any one disturbance 
rather problematic this far out. 


Highs Sat / sun in the M-u80s...85-90 Monday / Tuesday. Lows u60s-m70s. 


&& 


Aviation /16z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
mainly VFR through the 12z taf period. S/SW flow ~10 knots continues today 
ahead of an approaching cold front. Expect mainly hi clouds...with 
rain showers/thunderstorms possible this afternoon/eveng though chances are not hi enough to 
include in the tafs at this time. 


Outlook...a frontal systm will drop into the area Thursday and linger 
through Sunday. Mainly VFR conds will prevail outside convection. 
There will be chances for afternoon/eveng rain showers/thunderstorms each day with the 
highest chances Thursday night and Friday. 


&& 


Marine... 
Small Craft Advisory over the Bay has been extended through 7 am as winds there continue 
to gust to ~20-25 knots Erly this morng. Winds will then relax through the 
day as a cold front approaches from the northwest. Expect 10-15 knots S winds 
this afternoon with 1-2 feet waves over the Bay and 2-4 feet seas over coastal 
waters. The front drops into the area from the northwest on Thursday...with winds 
becoming light and vrb as the front stalls and remains in the vicinity 
through Friday. Waves average 1-2 feet and seas average 2-4 feet into the weekend with 
sub-Small Craft Advisory conds continuing. 


&&

At norfolk: 
*avg temperature of 78.7 f ranks as the 7th warmest on record. 
*Total precipitation of 8.34" ranks as 5th wettest on record. 


At richmond:
