NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1033 am EST Tuesday Mar 3 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will slide offshore this afternoon. A warm front 
lifts northeast across the region tonight...followed by a cold 
front slowly crossing the area Wednesday afternoon through 
Wednesday night. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
late this morng...hi pressure was centered right along the CST. Flow 
aloft is generally from the west...well out ahead of broad trough over 
the western Continental U.S.. temperatures were slowly climbing through the 30s to near 40 
degrees over the akq County Warning Area...with dewpoints ranging from the middle teens to 
the upper 20s. Radar showed only very light mixed precipitation or rain over the 
mountains of West Virginia and SW Virginia. Center of hi pressure will push offshr this 
afternoon...but low level cad remains over the forecast area. A cloudy sky will 
limit temperature rises this afternoon...with highs only ranging from the middle 
30s extreme northwest to the middle 40s over NE NC. Better coverage of precipitation is 
expected middle/late afternoon...with best precipitation chances (50-60%) for mainly 
light rain across northern and western areas. Model soundings continue to 
support a brief period of -fzra over far northwest areas between 16-20z 
as temperatures struggle to reach/surpass 32f through early this afternoon. 
Confidence remains low at this time given marginal temperatures and a warm day 
yesterday. Otherwise...p-type to be all rain over the region this 
aftn/eveng. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday/... 
warm front to lift NE through the forecast area tonight. Best moisture and 
uvm across central/northern portions of forecast area...thus the highest probability of precipitation...W/ 
with chance probability of precipitation limited to southern Virginia/NE NC. Bulk of the rain lifts to northern 
portion by lt at night. Low temperatures likely around 00z/04 with rising 
temperatures through the night. Temperatures by 12z/04 Wednesday rise into the middle/upper 
40s to middle 50s southeast. 


Forecast area becomes "warm sectored" Wednesday due to surge of a strong south-southwest flow. 
There remain timing issues west/ the approaching cold front from the north-northwest...however 
a GFS/European model (ecmwf) blend looks like a good compromise. Will have highest probability of precipitation 
(40-70%) by afternoon across northern tier of forecast area...W/ slight chance to chance (20-40%) 
to the S. For now...leaving out any mention of T across southern Virginia/NE 
NC...since it aprs most of moisture confined to west/ and behind the 
fnt. Hi temperatures from the u50s/l60s north to l70s in far southeast Virginia/NE NC. 


Just one year ago...March 2nd-3rd...went from 60s to l70s (the 2nd) 
to a few inches of snow (on the 3rd). This may occur again this weak 
(wed-thu). 


Forecast challenges continue Wednesday night through Thursday as cold front settles south-southeast 
through the forecast area...and another area of Arctic surface hi pressure builds toward 
the MS/Ohio valleys. Will lean toward the faster arrival of colder surface 
air from the north-northwest (gfs/ecmwf) by lt Wednesday night and continuing on Thursday. The 
models each hint at weak surface low pressure tracking through NC as short wave aloft 
(in fast southwesterly flo) is sheared as it moves eastward into the region. All 
this leads to a transition (wrt p-type) lt Wed/Thu. Rain...becomes 
mixed west/ ice pellets-changing to snow/ice pellets then ending as snow from north-northwest to southeast across 
the forecast area (lastly across NE NC by middle or lt afternoon thu). Timing those 
transitions at this point very difficult...though currently expect 
a least light snow accums for areas north of the NC/Virginia border before the 
day ends Thursday (t-2 inches S...1-4 inches north (highest ptnttly from 
ric-sby)). Along west/ the transition to wintry precipitation...gusty north-northeast winds 
will be pushing colder air into the region. Low temperatures Wednesday night from around 
30f north to the low/middle 40s far S. Temperatures Thursday steady or falling. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
cold to begin the extended in wake of Thursday cold front...but 
moderating temperatures through the weekend will bring temperatures back to near 
normal early next week. 


Shortwave pushes offshore Thursday night with the northern portion of the 
front pushing well offshore. Southern portion pushes southward over the Gulf 
states/northern Gulf...stalling in westerly flow aloft. Ended chance probability of precipitation near 
the coast at midnight...with drying/clearing conditions thereafter. 
1030+mb Arctic high pressure builds over the region Friday...resulting 
in another cold day with highs around 20 degrees below normal. 850 mb 
temperatures bottom out around -12c (-2 Standard dev)...with thicknesses 
yielding temperatures in the low-middle 30s. Surface high pushes offshore Friday 
night with light return flow helping moderate low level thicknesses. 
Temperatures forecast in the middle-upper teens Friday night under mostly clear 
skies. Thereafter...medium range guidance begins to diverge thanks 
to developing split flow over the western Continental U.S.. the upper pattern will 
again be characterized by cyclonic flow (troughing) over the eastern 
Continental U.S. And ridging (return to a +pna) over the western Continental U.S.. models 
struggling with a number of Canadian impulses set to impact the NE 
states...but also southern stream energy over the Baja California this weekend. 
European model (ecmwf) rather robust with this energy...translating across northern Mexico 
and the Southern Plains Sat night-sun...possibly phasing with northern stream 
energy over the Midwest. This solution would lift the stalled 
frontal boundary over the Gulf northward late in the weekend...bringing 
rain to the region early next week. The GFS shears the 
energy...keeping it well south of the region...keeping the local 
area dry. Have trended forecast toward a wpc/ensemble approach which 
keeps the southern stream wave flat and the local area dry through the 
weekend..with moderating temperatures. Highs Sat forecast in the upper 
40s-low 50s inland and low-middle 40s near the coast. Highs sun in the 
middle 50s inland and middle-upper 40s near the coast. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
scattered-broken high clouds should continue to pass over the region 
overnight...with a light north-northeast wind due to 1030mb high pressure over 
PA. One exception will be ecg...which will have a period of 5kft 
ceilings over the next few hours. High pressure moves offshore 
today...followed by a warm front tonight. A period of -ra is 
expected to develop later this afternoon...primarily after 21z. 
Ceilings lower to 4-5kft through the day along with a light east-southeast wind. 
There is an increasing potential for IFR ceilings tonight...especially 
after 06z as the warm front lifts through the region. Conditions 
should improve for a brief period later Wednesday morning. 
However...a cold front is expected to drop through the region 
during the afternoon followed by deteriorating flight conditions. 
The chance of rain increases later Wednesday afternoon...with rain 
overspreading the entire region Wednesday evening. A transition to 
a mix and eventually snow should begin at sby after 06z...with the 
transition occurring at ric closer to 12z. Farther southeast...the change 
should occur later in the day. Additionally...a gusty northerly 
wind will develop along the coast Thursday. High pressure settles 
over the area Friday and Saturday. 


&& 


Marine... 
1030mb surface high pressure shifts offshore today allowing a 
10-15kt north-northeast wind to become southeast at or below 10kt by afternoon. The high shifts 
farther offshore tonight as a warm front lifts through the region. 
Despite a strong low level jet it will be difficult to obtain Small Craft Advisory conditions 
given warm air advection over cold water. Given this...wind/seas have been capped 
below Small Craft Advisory criteria. Overall...expect a south-southwest wind ~15kt for the Bay 
and a 15-20kt for the ocean along with 3-4ft seas/2-3ft waves. A 
cold front approaches from the north-northwest Wednesday morning...and slowly 
drops to a position near the Virginia/NC border by late afternoon/early 
evening. The front then becomes nearly stationary Wednesday night as 
low pressure tracks along the boundary. Cold air advection commences Thursday as 
the low pulls offshore and continues into Thursday night as 1040mb 
high pressure builds in from the northwest. Small Craft Advisory conditions are likely 
during this time period with a northerly wind of 20-25kt...and 4-7ft 
seas (highest s) and 3-4ft waves in the Bay. High pressure returns 
Friday and Friday night...and slides offshore Saturday.
