NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
946 PM EDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Synopsis... 
a weak cold front settles south into North Carolina overnight 
into Friday...before lifting north as a warm front Friday night 
and Saturday. A weak trough develops on Sunday and should result 
in increasing precipitation chances later in the day. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Friday morning/... 
weak surface boundary remains draped from along the Virginia/NC border in southern/southeast Virginia...to 
west-central Virginia. Isolated/scattered convection continues to track slowly southeast through 
areas of the Piedmont west of I 95. Dewpoints remain from the u60s to l70s S 
along/S of that boundary...and mainly in the l60s north (along north-northeast wnds). 


00z/29 RUC continue to push that convection to the southeast into NE NC after 
midnight as the boundary sinks S. Will keep probability of precipitation for those areas 
until after mdngt...elsewhere just clr-pc. May need to add fog over southern 
areas of the forecast area...though expecting a gradual lowering of dewpoints from the north-northeast 
as the boundary sinks to the S. Low temperatures from the l60s north to the 
u60s/around 70f S. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Friday morning through Sunday/... 
a weak frontal boundary remains stalled across northern NC Friday as a 
surface high pressure over New England extends southward into the middle Atlantic 
region. Once again...the weak frontal boundary should provide just 
enough forcing/instability for isolated to scattered showers and 
thunderstorms in vicinity of the stalled front (still primarily south of 
Interstate 64 with best precipitation chances along the Virginia/NC border into 
NE nc). The axis of the surface high sits over central New York to central Virginia 
Friday morning and then pivots eastward along the coast from NC to New 
England by Friday evening. This will bring a slightly cooler airmass 
across the northern half of the County Warning Area while temperatures stay on the cooler side 
in vicinity of the front due to partly to mostly cloudy skies. It is 
difficult to say exactly where the dividing line will set-up between 
highs in the middle-upper 80s SW to low-middle 80s NE. Current forecast 
thinking generally keeps the cooler highs across the Northern Neck/Maryland 
lower Eastern Shore/Accomack County Virginia...despite mostly sunny skies 
across these areas. 


The stalled boundary lifts northward as a warm front Friday night into 
Saturday as the surface high over New England slides off the New 
England coast late Friday night into Saturday. As it does so... 
will need to carry slight chance probability of precipitation across much of the forecast area Friday 
night...with the best chances for precipitation (still in the 
20 percent range) along and north-NE of Interstate 64 during most of 
Saturday. Return flow also develops on Saturday as the ridge axis 
moves offshore...bringing warmer temperatures and a more humid airmass 
into the region. Lows Friday night in the low-middle 60s north and 
upper 60s to lower 70s south. Highs Saturday around 90/mid-upper 
80s immediate coast. A generally dry forecast for Saturday night 
into the first half of Sunday as high pressure dominates at the 
surface and aloft. Lows Saturday night around 70 under partly cloudy 
skies. A weak trough develops along the Lee of the Appalachians on 
Sunday and may be just enough of a focusing mechanism for showers 
and thunderstorms during the afternoon/evening as weak shortwave energy 
streams along the periphery of an upper level ridge...which should 
be centered over the western Atlantic as a Bermuda high. Middle-Range 
model solutions vary regarding overall precipitation placement... 
but the general trend has higher probability of precipitation of 30-40 percent along and 
northwest of a line from avc-ric-sby and lower probability of precipitation around 20 percent 
across NE NC/far southeast Virginia. Temperatures remain warm in the persistent 
return flow with highs once again around 90/mid-upper 80s immediate 
coast. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
Summer-like pattern will tend to prevail through the medium range period 
as middle/upper level ridging centered along/off the southeast US coast...gradually 
shifts to the west-southwest and becomes anchored over the deep south/Gulf 
Coast region. Temperatures will generally run about 5 f above average with 
highs into the upper 80s to lower 90s and lows in the upper 60s to 
Lower/Middle 70s. A couple of weak middle level shortwaves will bring 
somewhat higher probability of precipitation to the area for Labor Day...will carry 40% 
probability of precipitation throughout...followed by probability of precipitation only ~20% on Tuesday in between the 
departing wave and a cold front approaching from the northwest. Tuesday 
likely the hottest day..with most locations getting above 90 f and 
perhaps into the middle 90s over the interior. Another round of 
somewhat high probability of precipitation is slated for Tuesday evening/Tuesday night as the cold 
front moves closer to the local area and heights aloft drop as the 
ridge breaks down. 


By late Wed-Thu...a general consensus of the GFS/ECMWF/wpc 
forecast does push a surface cold front south of the area with high 
pressure building across the NE Continental U.S.. this should allow slightly 
cooler/drier air to move into the region...but the front does not 
looks very strong so highs will still average in the middle-upper 80s on 
Thursday. Will focus highest probability of precipitation Wednesday-Thursday across the south (20-30%) with 
generally a dry forecast across the Eastern Shore. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Friday through Tuesday/... 
cold front will stall along and just south of the local area late 
tonight and Friday, with guidance indicating potential for some 
low stratus early Friday morning, as low level moisture gets 
trapped beneath the nocturnal inversion. Have gone with mention 
for scattered-broken ceilings ~ 4-5 kft over southern terminals (phf/orf/ecg), 
with potential for some light fog/mist at/in vicinity of ecg Friday morning. 


Outlook...mainly dry weather with continued VFR conditions expected 
Friday and through much of the upcoming Holiday weekend. Slight to 
low chance probability of precipitation for afternoon/evening thunderstorms Sunday evening increase to 
30 to 40 percent Monday ahead of the next frontal passage. 
Otherwise, some potential for fog or low clouds will exist each 
day within a few hours of sunrise. 


&& 


Marine... 
Cristobal now >500 nm east-northeast of the local area...with a weak surface 
boundary have pushed south of the waters. North/NE winds average around 10 
knots...will likely increase a bit later tonight as modest push of 
cooler air moves over the waters with surface high pressure moving east-southeast 
from Michigan into the NE and northern middle Atlantic region. 


As for headlines...will maintain schs headline for coastal waters north 
of Parramore Island through 10pm...with no headlines elsewhere even 
though there will be some increase in winds over the Bay overnight 
into early Friday. (Much like what occurred earlier today). North/NE 
winds will slowly veer to the east/NE in the afternoon and average 10-15 knots 
across the Lower Bay and southern coastal waters to 5-10 knots farther 
north. Seas will generally only be around 3 feet...but will generally still 
have a moderate risk for rip currents along area beaches as energy 
from Cristobal is slow to diminish. 


Winds then gradually veer and become southeast and gradually increase by 
Saturday aftn/evening. Winds then become S/SW Sunday. Seas will 
generally run 3 feet or less but may increase to 4 feet in the outer 
portion of 20nm late Saturday and Sunday...with a period of 2-3 feet 
waves in the Bay Sat night. Fairly quiet (outside of convection) into 
early next week with seas 2-3 feet and waves 1-2 feet or less as surface 
high remains anchored offshore and no significant fronts move into 
the area until late Tue/Wed. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...moderate rip current risk through Friday evening for mdz025. 
NC...moderate rip current risk through Friday evening for ncz102. 
Virginia...moderate rip current risk through Friday evening for 
vaz098>100. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas until 10 PM EDT this 
evening for anz650-652.
