NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
931 PM EDT Tuesday Apr 15 2014 

Canadian high pressure builds in from the northwest tonight and 
settles over the middle Atlantic and northeast Wednesday through Friday. 


Near term /until 6 am Wednesday morning/... 
in my 20 years here at akq...not sure I have seen all these events 
occurred across the forecast area as they have during the past few hours. 1) a 
30 degree temperature drop in 2 hours...2) winds across the southern Chesapeake 
Bay gusting between 60-70 miles per hour...3) severe thunderstorms...4) some 
sleet being reported west & north of ric. Just anthr day in Paradise. 

Culprit is a strong cold front now pushing south into the Albemarle 
Sound and will continue to move offshore through the night. MDT to 
occasional heavy rainfall continues along and east of i95 with precipitation quickly 
tapering off across the Piedmont. Will trend grids with high probability of precipitation 
next 1-3 hours then quickly end west-east aftr midnight with all short 
range models showing a fairly quick drying of the column resulting 
in decreasing cloudiness and clearing expected aftr 06z. Some sleet may mix in 
as precipitation ends...but won't indct this in grids at this time. The gusty 
winds will continue at 30-40 with higher gusts along the coast next 
several hours then slowly begin to dmnsh late. Inland winds 20-30 miles per hour 
will dmnsh late as well. Lsr of this evening events to follow. 


Short term /6 am Wednesday morning through Friday/... 
high pressure settles over the middle Atlantic and northeast during the 
short term. Due to north to northwest winds and cold temperatures aloft... 
clouds from streamers are expected over the Chesapeake Bay 
and eastern portions of south side Hampton Roads on Wednesday... 
especially in the morning. Temperatures will remain cool Wednesday 
and Thursday with highs mainly in the 50s. On Wednesday... 
temperatures may get no higher than the middle to upper 40s along the 
coast including the Norfolk and Virginia Beach area and the lower 
Eastern Shore. Lows Thursday morning again are forecast to fall to 
around 30 over interior portions. Some frost is possible as well 
including locations that only fall to the low to middle 30s. Any needed 
headlines will be deferred to later shifts. 

Temperatures warm a bit Friday with highs in the lower 60s over 
interior areas. There will be a slight chance for rain toward the 
coast...especially over southeast Virginia and northeast North 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
an area of surface low pressure is expected to develop on a stalled 
boundary off the southeast coast Friday night. The low should track NE 
well off the Carolina coast on Sat. This feature may bring a few 
rain showers to far southeast Virginia/NE NC during this timeframe. 
Meanwhile...an upper level trough over the upper Midwest will swing 
into the eastern Great Lakes Friday night and skirt across northern Virginia on Sat. A 
weak surface low will be associated with this feature and may bring a 
brief round of showers to far northern portions of the forecast area (including the 
Maryland/Virginia eastern shore) Sat afternoon/early evening before moving offshore 
and dissipating. The surface low associated with the Great Lakes trough 
is expected to phase with the aforementioned coastal low Sat 
night...but this should occur over New England and have very little 
impact to the Middle Atlantic States. Surface high pressure builds into the 
region sun...then slides offshore by sun evening as a relatively 
flat (west to east oriented) frontal boundary sags down into the 
area Monday night into Tuesday. Weak shortwave energy and a subsequent surface 
low travelling along this boundary may bring another shot of 
precipitation to the area on Mon/Tue. GFS precipitation-generation and 
general movement is a bit aggressive versus the European model (ecmwf)...therefore 
tried to split the difference with the pop forecast and limited 
coverage to no higher than 40 percent. 

Temperatures are expected to be straight-forward Sat night through 
Sun night as high pressure crosses the region. Expect lows near 
normal both nights in the 40s (lower 50s possible immediate southeast Virginia/NE 
NC coasts). Highs Sat/sun range from roughly 65 degrees far NE to 70 
degrees SW. As the flat frontal boundary starts to sag into the Middle 
Atlantic States Monday through Tuesday...the temperature forecast becomes tricky 
in regard to where exactly the warm sector develops. With precipitation 
expected to approach the area on Monday...increasing cirrus should keep 
high temperatures in the upper 60s west of I-95 with warmer temperatures in the 
lower 70s east of I-95 (mid-upper 60s Maryland/Virginia eastern shore). Highs 
Tuesday should be in the lower 70s inland and in the upper 60s near the 
immediate ches Bay and Atlantic coasts. Low temperatures areawide on 
Monday/Tuesday night should also be warm with readings in the 50s (or about 
10 degrees above normal). 


Aviation /01z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
strong cold front has crossed the area. Expect north winds to gust to 
over 30kt until 05z Wednesday. Winds will relax a bit overnight...but will 
still gust to 20kt. Light to moderate rain will also subside by 
05z...ending first at ric. 

Skies clear overnight and VFR conditions expected through 
Thursday as high pressure builds over the area. 


gale warngs will continue as planned for all waters today into tonight. A 
strong cold front is currently approaching the middle Atlantic 
CST...with gusty southerly flow ahead of the front to be followed by 
stronger northwest flow behind the front. Expect gusts up to 35-40 knots overnight 
as the front pushes offshore and hi pressure builds in from the west with 
large pressure rises. Waves will rise to 4 to 6 feet over the Bay...and 
seas will rise to 6 to 9 feet on the coastal waters. Hi pressure continues to 
build in through Wednesday afternoon...which will allow the gradient to weaken 
significantly. Still have the gales ending at 7 am for the 
Bay/rivers...and holding into the Erly afternoon for the CST and sound. 
Hi pressure slides NE across New England and into the Canadian Maritimes 
Wednesday night through Friday...as a weak coastal trough develops off the southeast CST. This 
will result in a prolonged period of NE winds and elevated seas through 
the end of the week.
