NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
205 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will slide south along the middle Atlantic coast 
through tonight...as a frontal boundary remains nearly stationary 
from the deep south to the coastal Carolinas. A cold front will 
approach from the northwest on Wednesday...and push across the 
region Thursday into Thursday night. High pressure will build over 
the area on Friday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
overall pattern surface-aloft remains generally the same as past few 
days...W/ weak upper level low lingering in vicinity of Gulf CST states...while 
weak hi pressure over the NE Continental U.S. Is slowly sliding S off the middle Atlantic 
CST. Deeper moisture/scattered precipitation from the Carolinas and southeast states will 
continue to try to spread north-northeast into the County Warning Area into early this evening. 
Highest chances (30-40%) will remain across the southern half of the region where 
the best instability/dynamic forcing is forecast. Locally heavy rain possible 
in any thunderstorm. A gardual turn of winds from east-northeast...to southeast into tonight. 
Some of the cloudiness of the past few days has scoured out leading to 
psny conds. Expecting some increases in cloudiness this afternoon (for vrb clouds/continued 
psny conds)...W/ hi temperatures to be in the M/u80s inland...80 to 84f 
near the CST. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Thursday/... 
any convection this evening expected to wane overnight leaving p/mcldy conds 
west/ low temperatures in u60s to l70s. 


By Wednesday...next trough aloft tracks through the Great Lakes and 
gradually amplifies into the NE/middle Atlantic regions Wednesday into Wednesday 
night...pushing the next surface cold front toward the forecast area. Low level flow 
becomes more south-southwest on Wednesday...resulting in better opportunity for 
partly to mostly sunny conditions and temperatures responding to near or 
slightly above seasonal normals. Will maintain probability of precipitation at 20-30% on 
Wednesday...esply for Wednesday aftn/eveng. Hi temperatures will be in the lower 90s 
inland...with 85 to 90 near the CST. 


Adjusted probability of precipitation at bit for Wednesday night through Thursday...based on the latest 
model fcst's (esply the GFS/ecmwf) movement of the next cold 
front. Mainly have 30-40% probability of precipitation Wednesday night...with 50-60% probability of precipitation Thursday afternoon 
into Thursday night. Lows Wednesday night in the lower to middle 70s...with highs on 
Thursday ranging from the middle 80s to lower 90s. Some stronger storms could 
be possible Thursday afternoon into Thursday night across southern/southeast Virginia and NE NC. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
a cold front is forecast to move south of the local area Thursday 
night into Friday morning...before stalling over North Carolina later 
Friday. Because of the slow progress of the front will continue to 
carry solid chance probability of precipitation all areas Thursday night (highest se). By 
Friday...slight chance probability of precipitation will be limited to the southern 1/3rd of 
the forecast area nearest the front. Surface high pressure should begin to nudge 
into northern/central parts of the area during the day. The front 
should sag far enough south by Friday night to bring dry 
conditions all areas. However...will keep slight chance probability of precipitation across 
NE NC...pending agreement of next couple of model runs. Saturday 
is shaping up to be a dry day with high pressure in control. By 
next Sunday/Monday...the front lifts back north as a warm front 
and typical diurnal summertime convection will again be possible. 
Highs through the period will mainly be in the 80s...except some 
low 90s inland by sun/Mon. Lows in the 60s to low 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
onshore flow prevails as high pressure locates along the middle- 
Atlantic coast. Ely flow has maintained low-middle level moisture and 
cloudiness this afternoon. Ceilings generally VFR (decks 4-6k feet 
agl)...but a scattered deck around 2500 feet above ground level persists. Only anticipate 
patchy MVFR near the southeast Virginia/NE NC coast. A weak boundary over NC 
has been the focus for scattered showers/thunderstorms generally south 
of the Albemarle Sound...with only isolated showers/thunderstorms 
north of the sound. Will leave weather out of ecg taf as confidence is 
not high that operations will be impacted. Any showers that are 
able to form will be capable of locally heavy rainfall. High 
pressure slides offshore tonight with return flow drying things 
out. Some patchy fog and low ceilings are possible near the 
coast...including ksby. 


Outlook...little change expected for Wednesday except for a bit 
of an increase in shower and thunderstorm activity in the afternoon. 
Widespread showers and thunderstorms are forecast Thursday and 
Thursday night as a cold front approaches and then moves through 
the area. Friday and Saturday should be mostly dry/VFR, although a 
few showers and thunderstorms will be possible Friday afternoon...especially 
in the southeast. 


Note: observations from sby are not readily available...technicians 
are aware of the problem. Will append amend not schedule to ksby taf ufn. 


&& 


Marine... 
latest observation reflect a light easterly flow over the waters this 
morning, ahead of a quasi-stationary frontal boundary extending SW 
to NE along the southeast coast this morning. Meanwhile, surface high pressure 
remains off the New England coast. Weak frontal boundary offshore 
will slowly lift north and washout by midday, with winds becoming southeast 
this afternoon at or below 10 knots. Winds veer around to the SW tonight, ahead 
of next cold front approaching the waters from the west. Winds 
gradually ramp up as gradient tightens ahead of the front. S-SW 
winds increase to ~15 knots late Wednesday/Wednesday night, as model guidance once 
again has become a bit quicker with the frontal passage. Latest 
guidance indicates front will push across the waters from the northwest 
Thursday/Thursday afternoon. Winds veer to the north-NE late Thu/Friday. Given a 
rather weak cold air advection surge, Small Craft Advisory conditions are not expected at this time. Stayed 
close to nwps depiction for significant wave heights, with seas 2-3 
feet building to ~4ft Wednesday night/early Thursday before subsiding as 
winds become north-NE Friday. Waves will remain 1 to 2 feet.
