NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1052 am EDT Monday may 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure remains nearly stationary off the middle Atlantic 
coast through Friday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest weather analysis revealing ~1028 mb surface high pressure aligned 
SW to NE from the coastal Carolinas to off the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia coast. 
Aloft, upper level ridge remains centered off the southeast coast. 


Quiet weather continues today. Upper ridge will remain centered 
off the southeast coast, but will amplify through the day. Meanwhile, surface 
high will continue to slowly slide southeast through tonight. Precipitable water 
values begin to creep above climatology normal today on S-southeast wind 
(breezy this afternoon during peak mixing). However, subsidence beneath 
the ridge will bring a dry/warm Memorial Day across the area, 
with little more than a few to scattered afternoon cumulus. Thickness tools 
reflecting a modest bump upward in temperatures compared to 
Sunday...about a category higher on average compared to those of 
yesterday. This yields highs in the 75 to 80 along the 
coast...lower/mid 80s north...middle 80s south. Clear and mild 
tonight west/early morning in the lower to middle 60s. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Thursday/... 
Bermuda high offshore will provide Summer-like conditions through 
Tuesday through midweek. Upper ridge sliding offshore will allow for 
an incremental increase in humidity Tue/Wed. A weak Lee trough 
develops late Tuesday...and some scattered convection possible west of the 
mountains however, airmass remains capped with convection not expected 
to hold together for most of the local area. Did add a slight 
chance for the far western tier of the area mainly along and northwest of 
Highway 15...but otherwise maintained a dry forecast. 


Upper trough ejects northeast across the upper Midwest on Wednesday/Thu, 
dampening the East Coast upper ridge slightly. Resultant pressure 
falls associated with weak flow aloft will sharpen Lee trough a bit 
further for Wednesday afternoon. This feature...combined with increasing/advancing 
moisture from the middle-south will allow for better low level convergence and 
at least some forcing for some isolated to widely scattered mainly diurnally 
driven convection. Have aligned 20-30 pop across the Piedmont on 
Wed, mainly along/west of I-95. Chance pop across this same area again on 
Thursday...with a slight chance pop installed along the coastal plain as 
additional weak disturbances lift NE from the Ohio/Tennessee valleys. Severe 
weather not expected during the forecast period, with shear profiles 
remaining rather weak. Light steering flow would portend to a 
concern for local heavy rain in any showers that develop on 
Wed/Thu...but overall, expect areal coverage for showers to be 
rather low through the period. 


While increasing relative humidity will make it increasingly "summer-like" by the 
day, look for highs each day in M-u80s west of the ches Bay...m70s- 
l80s along the coast...coolest at the beaches. Early morning lows 
in the 60s. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Sunday/... 
long term period will be characterized by above normal temperatures each 
day and typical diurnal chances for /tstms across northwest areas. 
Upper level ridge will keep fronts over the upper Midwest. Leeside 
trough may trigger after thunderstorms Thursday. GFS/Euro both 
indicate drying for Friday and Saturday with less coverage of 
convection. Ridging weakens and the cold front to the northwest begins to 
approach the area. Thunderstorm chances increase once again Sunday. High 
temperatures inland range from the middle to upper 80s Thursday and 
Friday increasing to around 90 Saturday and Sunday. Highs range from 
80 to 85 near the coast. Lows are forecast to range from 65 to 70. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Monday through Friday/... 
high pressure off the middle Atlantic coast will provide stable 
conditions and S/SW winds during the 18z taf period. 


SW winds will be gusty at times through late afternoon with a few gusts 
reaching around 20 knots. Winds become lightly southerly Monday 
evening...then increase from the S/SW by midday Tuesday. The sky 
will remain clear through Tuesday morning with increasing high 
clouds by Tuesday afternoon. 


Outlook...Bermuda high pressure will continue to dominate. The 
combination of increasing moisture and a surface trough over the 
Piedmont may produce scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms 
Wednesday through Saturday...mainly at ric/sby. The best chance for 
convection will be Thursday. Outside thunderstorms...VFR conds should 
prevail. 


&& 


Marine... 
surface high pressure will persist off the eastern Seaboard through 
the upcoming weekend...while middle/upper level ridging over the southeast 
and Middle Atlantic States will be the dominant weather feature 
through Tuesday. Winds will vary between a south-southeast-south-southwest direction...becoming 
breezy at or below 15kt each afternoon/early evening during this timeframe. 
Overall conditions will remain sub-sca...however a few gusts 
could reach up to 20kt at times on the coastal waters/ches 
Bay/sound. The middle/upper ridging breaks down Tuesday night due to a 
remnant trough passing across the western Appalachians into the Ohio 
Valley. This feature will introduce showers and thunderstorms 
into the forecast beginning Wednesday afternoon/evening and will allow 
periods of unsettled conditions to continue through the upcoming 
weekend. Waves/seas will average 1-3ft today through Friday. 
However...seas may reach up to 4ft between 10-20nm in the northern 
coastal waters (north of Cape Charles light) from Tuesday night 
through Thursday/Thursday night.
