NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1046 am EDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
a weak frontal boundary crosses the region this morning...with 
high pressure returning this afternoon into tonight. Low pressure 
tracks across the northern middle Atlantic Tuesday with the 
associated cold front dropping through the region Tuesday night. 
Canadian high pressure builds into the region Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
update...light rain showers have become focused along the Maryland/Virginia 
Eastern Shore and down into far southeast Virginia and all of NE NC late this 
morning. Radar echoes appear much worse than is happening at the 
surface...with only very light quantitative precipitation forecast amts of 0.02 inches or less 
occurring. Surface cold front is now draped across central Virginia where some 
breaks in the cloud cover can be seen in visible satellite 
imagery. Behind the front...SW winds will veer around to west-northwest 
during the afternoon and additional clearing will occur as drier air 
aloft moves into the region. Cooled highs by a few 
degrees...especially closer to the coast due to evaporative 
cooling from precipitation and delayed clearing this afternoon. Lower 60s west 
to middle-upper 50s along the coast. 


Previous discussion...current GOES WV imagery shows a middle-level 
trough lifting NE of the Great Lakes region...with a middle-level 
frontal boundary trailing back through the Ohio Valley. At the 
surface...low pressure is centered north of the Great Lakes...with 
high pressure off the southeast coast. The surface boundary 
(associated with the cold front aloft) consists mainly of a wind 
shift from SW to west-northwest. Locally...the airmass remains rather dry 
with dewpoints ranging from the upper teens to low 20s...with 
temperatures in the upper 30s to middle 40s. The initial band of 
radar echoes that have passed across the region have at most 
produced a brief period of -ip across the far northern tier counties. 
The next batch is passing across the central Appalachians. This 
will produce isolated/scattered -shra over the northwest half of the area through 
mid-morning. The surface airmass will remain dry throughout so 
expect very little measurable qpe. The boundary is expected to 
encounter somewhat better moisture over southeast Virginia/NE NC later this 
morning...so a period of likely -shra has been maintained. Still 
eventual qpe amounts are expected to average ~0.1in or less. 


Otherwise...mostly cloudy to overcast conditions this morning 
should become partly to mostly sunny by afternoon...with the 
clearing trend progressing NW-se. Favorable downslope flow (a west-northwest 
wind of 10-15mph with gusts to around 20mph) should push highs 
into the low/middle 60s over interior Virginia/NE NC. Farther east...highs 
should be in the middle/upper 50s where cloud cover will persist 
through early afternoon. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Wednesday/... 
high pressure builds across the southeast states tonight as low 
pressure moves into the Great Lakes. A clear and seasonably cool 
night is expected with lows ranging from the upper 30s to low 40s. 


The aforementioned low pressure system driven by zonal flow aloft 
quickly tracks across the northern middle Atlantic Tuesday afternoon. 
Expect mostly sunny conditions to begin the day with increasing 
clouds across the north by afternoon. A ribbon of 20-30% probability of precipitation (for 
-shra) has been maintained primarily for the northern interior Virginia 
counties and the Maryland lower Eastern Shore during the 
afternoon/evening hours. It will be difficult to get any precipitation S of 
the low track with deep layered west-southwest flow. 


Low-level thickness values continue to support highs around 70f 
on Tuesday over interior Virginia/NE NC. This is certainly possible with 
low pressure tracking north of the region resulting in deep layered 
west-southwest flow. Forecast highs remain in the upper 60s to low 70s across 
much of the area...with middle 60s over the interior Eastern Shore...and 
locally cooler values along the immediate Atlantic coast. 


Low pressure exits the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia after midnight Tuesday night. 
Cooler conditions are expected Wednesday under a sunny sky as 
Canadian high pressure builds into the area. Highs are forecast to 
range from the low 50s along the coast...to the upper 50s/low 60s 
over interior Virginia/NE NC...after morning lows in the upper 30s 
north...to middle 40s S. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
split flow continues to be problematic during the extended 
period...but models continue to come into better agreement with a 
late week frontal passage. To begin the extended...high pressure 
pressure slides offshore Wednesday night. Increasing southerly flow on the back 
side of the departing high and a flattening southern stream wave will 
push a warm front through the local area Thursday. Resultant warm air advection will push 
temperatures into the low 70s inland and low-upper 60s Eastern Shore and 
coastal areas. Model consensus is to keep Thursday frontal passage dry 
thanks to limited moisture and a lack of appreciable forcing. Have 
removed slight chance probability of precipitation over the Piedmont Thursday. Potent northern 
stream wave locates over the Great Lakes region Thursday night-Friday 
pushing an associated/deepening surface low into southeast Canada. Attendant 
cold front prognosticated to reach the central Appalachians during the late 
Thursday-Friday timeframe. GFS continues to be less amplified with the northern 
stream system...pushing the front through the region around 12 hour 
quicker than the more amplified/slower European model (ecmwf). Regardless of spatial 
and timing differences...expect increasing chances for precipitation 
beginning Thursday night and continuing through Sat. 28/12z European model (ecmwf) pushes 
the precipitation offshore Friday night...but the GFS stalls the front over 
the region through Sat. Have maintained slight chance to low end 
chance probability of precipitation Sat to account for uncertainty. Mild temperatures expected 
Thursday night behind the warm front...with temperatures generally in the low- 
middle 50s. Warm sector/southwesterly flow pushes temperatures into the middle 70s inland 
(possibly warmer depending on cloud cover) and upper 60s-low 70s Eastern 
Shore and coastal areas. Cooler Sat with highs middle 60s inland and 
upper 50s-low 60s Eastern Shore and coastal areas. High pressure prognosticated 
to build over the southeast states Sat night-sun...with decreasing chances 
for precipitation. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Monday through Friday/... 
mainly VFR through the 12z taf period. Area of precipitation is currently 
sliding east through central/eastern Virginia so included either -ra or vcsh in all 
tafs through midday. Ceilings are expected to stay primarily 4-7k 
feet...but possibly down to MVFR heights at kecg later today. No visibility 
restrictions expected with any precipitation being light. Some breaks in 
the clouds expected late today as a cold front crosses the region. 
This will shift gusty S/SW winds this morng to the W/NW. 


High pressure builds back into the southeast US early Tuesday but a cold 
front moving through the area may bring a few showers to ksby Tuesday 
night. Wednesday/Wednesday night will be dry as high pressure builds in from 
the north. 


&& 


Marine... 
latest surface analysis reveals surface hi pressure centered off the southeast CST with 
a cold front pushing eastward through the Ohio Valley. Between these two 
features...a prefrntal southerly surge is now beginning over the local 
waters. Tricky call regarding Small Craft Advisory headlines...but looking at current 
winds and expected slight increase through the first half of the day 
to frequent gusts ~20 knots...hoisted a Small Craft Advisory for the Bay and lower 
James. A Small Craft Advisory has also been issued for the northern coastal waters due to 
seas out 20 nm close to 5 feet and gusts up to ~25 knots. Only marginal 
Small Craft Advisory conds expected due to weak warm air advection over cold water preventing the 
highest winds from mixing down to the surface. The cold front crosses the 
waters this aftn/eveng...with sub-Small Craft Advisory conds anticipated Post frontal 
tonight due to weak gradient winds and limited cold air advection. High pressure 
briefly builds over the waters late tonight-Tuesday morning with the 
flow switching from the northwest back to the SW Tuesday. Low pressure and 
an attendant cold front approach the waters Tuesday...crossing the 
region Tuesday night. Small Craft Advisory conditions are possible Post frontal Tuesday 
night-Wednesday morning. But again it would be marginal. High pressure 
returns to the area Wednesday- Thursday...resulting in sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions.
