NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
824 PM EDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
weak high pressure builds across the area through Friday. A 
strong low pressure system will develop off the middle Atlantic coast 
Saturday and Saturday night before exiting the area on Sunday. 
High pressure returns for the beginning of next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
midday surface analysis indicated surface cold front well offshore, 
extending into the deep south. Meanwhile, ~1022 mb surface high pressure 
continues to build into the region from the west-northwest. Aloft, 2 main players 
are a shortwave cutting across the middle Missouri Valley into the 
Ozarks with a second, stronger shortwave dropping south across the 
Canadian prairies this afternoon. 


Front will remain in place offshore tonight as surface high builds 
over the region tonight. Forecast low temperatures early Friday morning into 
the M/u30s inland to ~ 50f along southeast coastal areas...under a clear to 
mostly clear sky. 


Friday begins mostly clear, with gradually increasing clouds late 
afternoon/Friday night. Friday will be the transition day as weaker 
shortwave currently over the Ozarks carves out an East Coast 
trough into the deep south Friday. Meanwhile, stronger northern 
plains trough drops south from the upper Midwest into the Ohio 
Valley through Friday afternoon. The associated surface low and strong surface 
cold front will push across the Ohio Valley towards the central 
Appalachians Friday afternoon and evening. 


Across the local area, have maintained a dry forecast Friday. Model 
cross sections still showing a good deal of middle-level dry air that 
will need to be overcome...so will hold off on pop until after dark 
Friday night across the Piedmont. Otherwise, nothing more than 
increasing middle to high clouds tomorrow afternoon/evening with highs in 
the u50s north to low 60s southeast including along the coast. Dry 
conditions for most trick or treaters tomorrow, with the exception 
of a few sprinkles potentially along the immediate coast along the 
coastal front and over the Piedmont ahead of next system. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday night/... 
synoptic review: strong upper shortwave will dig continue to dig 
south from the Tennessee Valley across the deep south on Saturday. Good 
model agreement depicting upper low closing off over the Carolinas 
midday Sat. Models continue to spin-up secondary cyclogenesis 
offshore of the NC coast Sat afternoon/evening, before quickly ejecting 
northeast away from the area late Sat night into Sunday morning. 
Cool 1030+mb high pressure will settle east from the Mississippi 
Valley late Saturday through Monday. 


Forecast details/concerns: 12z/Thursday suite of models are in good 
agreement that rain will increase in coverage late Friday night 
through Saturday. Breezy overall on Saturday, with best surge of 
cold air advection likely holding off until Sat night. Given forecast of how far S upper 
level system tracks, most significant impacts appear to be over for 
eastern/southeastern coastal locations (primarily) from midday Sat into early Sat 
evening. Additionally, a period of strong north-northeast winds (35-45 mph) 
expected along coastal zones west/areas of minor tidal flooding along 
the Atlantic beaches (see coastal flooding section below). Will 
highlight potential impacts in severe weather potential statement. A Wind Advisory may be needed 
over at least some of our coastal zones Saturday night for a 6-10 
hour period if current forecast rationale pans out. 


Precipitation will quickly taper off Saturday night with subsidence in the 
wake of the departing wave...and sky clears out quickly into Sunday 
morning as surface high of Canadian origin sinks from the Ohio 
Valley into the southeast Sunday into Sunday night. This will 
usher in the coolest air of the season to date and a widespread 
frost/freeze is expected to for most locations just inland Monday 
morning.. 


For temperatures, widespread clouds, increasing rain chances will keep 
highs in the 50s for most on Saturday, with temperatures potentially not 
making it out of the 40s well inland. Well mixed atmosphere/breezy 
conditions will keep temperatures from bottoming out Saturday night, but 
still chilly with lows in the middle 30s inland to low 40s along the 
coast. Despite a mostly sunny sky, ongoing cold air advection will keep highs 
Sunday in the 50s...or roughly -1 to -1.5 Standard dev from climatology. 
The surface high locates along the southeast coast on Monday, with resultant 
low level SW flow allowing for a modest warmup Monday...into the 
u50s to near 60. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
strong high pressure settles over the middle Atlantic Sunday night. By 
Monday morning lows should fall to around 30-32 for much of the 
area (upper 20s possible in favored cold spots)...with slightly 
higher values (35-40) for far southeast portions. This has the potential to 
produce the first widespread freezing temperatures this fall across 
the local area. A slow moderating trend is expected Monday through 
Wednesday as the high gradually moves offshore. Highs Monday should 
range from 55-60...with middle/upper 60s possible by Tuesday and 
Wednesday. Overnight lows should remain rather cool Tuesday morning 
ranging from the low/middle 30s interior to low 40s for southeast coastal 
locations. Lows should moderate into the middle 40s/low 50s Wednesday 
morning with the high well offshore and the resumption of south-southwest flow. 
The next cold front approaches from the northwest Wednesday/Wednesday 
night...and tracks through the middle Atlantic Wednesday 
night/Thursday. At this time moisture appears rather limited with 
this front...so only slight chance probability of precipitation are included at the end of the 
forecast period. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Friday through Tuesday/... 
mostly VFR conditions will prevail across the area through Friday 
evening as a weak area of high pressure builds into the area tonight. 
The high dissipates over the region Friday afternoon while setting up a 
weak wedge that...due to the resulting NE flow...may cause some 
MVFR ceilings to occur at korf and kphf Friday evening. On Friday...a 
weak area of low pressure will develop along a stalled frontal 
boundary off the Carolina coast. Increasing moisture along with a 
few showers may impact the NE NC/southeast Virginia coast. 


Strong upper level system will move across the Ohio and then Tennessee 
River valleys Friday into Sat. This system will help to form a strong 
coastal system off the Outer Banks late Sat into sun. As this 
system deepens and moves off the coast...20-30 knots north winds with 
higher gusts will be possible from Sat night through Sun afternoon. 




&& 


Marine... 
weak high pressure remains immediately west of the middle Atlantic 
coast tonight through Friday...as a wave of low pressure forms off 
the southeast coast. This will maintain north-northeast flow averaging 
10-15kt...with 2-3ft seas and 1-2ft waves in the Bay (2-3ft at the 
mouth of the bay). The high weakens Friday night as the first wave 
of low pressure pulls quickly to the NE. A vigorous upper level 
trough is expected to cross the region Saturday...with a stronger 
area of low pressure rapidly deepening off the Outer Banks Saturday 
evening. This will be followed by strong cold air advection later Saturday night 
into Sunday as Canadian high pressure builds in from the northwest. A north-northwest 
wind is expected to quickly increase late Saturday afternoon and a 
period of gale conditions is likely late Saturday afternoon through 
Sunday morning...followed by Small Craft Advisory conditions lingering through Sunday 
night. At this time a gale watch has been issued for all zones but 
the Rappahannock/York/upper James beginning late Saturday afternoon 
and running through early Sunday morning for the Bay/sound/lower 
James...and middle-morning for the ocean. This is rather early for a 
gale watch...but the flag has been raised given a rather high 
confidence forecast. A ramp up Small Craft Advisory has been issued for the northern ocean 
zones (n of parramore) to account for a longer NE push...which could 
build seas to 5-7ft during the day Saturday. 12z data indicates 
rapid cyclogenesis occurring off the Outer Banks...so given this 
there is much less of a chance of a short duration period of storm 
force gusts Saturday evening. High pressure builds over the area 
Sunday night and Monday and then slowly moves offshore early next 
week...with the wind backing from northwest to SW. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
low pressure is expected to rapidly strengthen off the coast late 
Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. Tidal departures of 1-1.5ft 
above normal are possible Saturday night along the Atlantic coast 
and Lower Bay. Minor tidal flooding is possible if the surge 
coincides during the high tide cycle Saturday night. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...gale watch from Saturday evening through Sunday morning for
