NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
721 PM EST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will continue to move northeast and away from the 
area tonight. A secondary low tracks across the region Thursday. 
High pressure builds in from the west Thursday night and 
Friday...and slides off the coast on Saturday. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
latest analysis showing surface low pressure now centered off the 
Delaware-Maryland-Virginia...and rapidly pushing farther NE. Precipitation is beginning to 
taper off over much of the region as drier air aloft moves in from 
the SW. However...expect a 1-2 hour burst of mixed precipitation rain/sleet 
or snow/sleet across much of central and eastern Virginia through 00z. Impact- 
wise this will not amount to much as temperatures remain above 
freezing but a tenth of an inch or two of snow/sleet could briefly 
accumulate on the grass. As surface temperatures fall into the middle 30s across 
much of central and eastern Virginia (will keep ptype all rain for 
Norfolk/Virginia Beach and NE nc). 


Latest radar and satellite trends continue to support models that 
suggest several hours of "non eventful" conditions from late evening through 
Erly morning hours. After about 07z or so...next clipper-type system 
(currently over the middle MS/lower Ohio valley)...will dive east-southeast and 
approach SW Virginia. Have bumped up probability of precipitation for this impulse aftr 
09z...affecting the region primarily from 09z-17z or so. Lift 
looks impressive enough to bump probability of precipitation up to 60-70% for most of the 
County Warning Area. Thermal profiles and time of day suggests snow showers (nrn 
cntys)...rain/snow shower mix nrth of Virginia/NC line to say i64 although 
could become all snow for a few hours if precipitation comes down fast 
enough to overcome the warmer boundary layer). Have added some 
light snow accumulations to account for this across much of central 
and south central Virginia. For now...kept it all rain for Norfolk/Virginia 
Beach/NE NC. Short wave tracks moves off the coast by late in the day. 
Mainly cloudy in the morning/early afternoon with temperatures in the m30s- to 
around 40 f...then becoming pt sunny late afternoon as temperatures slowly rise 
into the 40s. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
generally a quiet period as high pressure builds east-southeast from the middle 
MS valley Thursday night and becomes centered across the area Friday/Friday 
night. Surface high then shifts farther southeast and off the southeast coast by 
Sat. Will maintain dry conditions throughout...with some increase 
in middle/high cloudiness Friday night/Sat (especially across the northern 
1/2 of the cwa). This as flow aloft flattens and a warm front 
lifts north through the Ohio Valley. Temperatures remain well below 
average Thursday night/Fri... with lows in the 20s to lower 30s and highs 
generally only 40-45 f on Friday. Chilly again Friday night...but temperatures 
moderate a bit on Sat as low level flow shifts to the south-southwest. Still 
a bit below average with highs 50-55 f central and south and in the 
upper 40s north. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
high pressure pushes offshore Sat night-sun as a warm front lifts 
through the region. Southerly flow and increasing heights/thicknesses will 
result in warmer temperatures sun...generally in the low 60s. The next 
storm system and associated cold front approach from the west Sun 
night...crossing the local area Monday. Frontal passage expected to be 
dry over the region...except a few light showers over the central 
Appalachians and eastern Virginia Piedmont...closest to best moisture. Temperatures 
Monday warm into the middle 60s. High pressure builds over the Great Lakes 
Monday night...locating over New England Tuesday afternoon. High pressure 
ridges over the local area...setting up an in-situ cad wedge over 
the region...with northeasterly low-level flow. Have introduced light overrunning 
precipitation Monday night and Tuesday. Tuesday highs range from the middle 40s northwest to 
middle 50s southeast. High pressure remains over the region Wednesday as another 
cold front approaches from the northwest. Highs Wednesday in the middle-upper 
50s. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Thursday through Monday/... 
low pressure continues to quickly move NE tonight...currently 
positioned off the New Jersey coast. Conds will slowly improve as winds 
back to the N/NW...with only a few showers/sprinkles remaining 
across eastern portions of the akq County Warning Area. Went close to the NAM MOS 
for ceilings overnight maintaining generally MVFR ceilings. Winds will 
relax overnight as the low moves farther up the northeast coast. 


A strong short wave moves across the area Thursday morning. Have light 
precipitation ric/phf and orf after 12/14z where it is most likely to occur. 
MVFR with periods of rain is expected. Rain may mix with snow at 
times which could result in brief IFR visible...especially at ric. 


Outlook...conditions improve Thursday afternoon with VFR and dry weather 
indicated Thursday night through Sunday. 


&& 


Marine... 
low pressure has located off the New Jersey coast this evening with high 
pressure located over the Great Lakes. Pressure gradient produced 
low level winds of 35 to 40 knots over the waters this afternoon...with 
much of this momentum reaching the waters. Winds have backed to the 
northwest...with gale force gusts still occurring over the coastal 
waters/mouth of the Bay. Observed gusts over all other waters range 
from 20-25 knots. With strong pressure rises behind the departing 
low...have opted to extend the gale warnings through 10 PM. Seas 
remain high...averaging 8-10 feet. Waves average 4 to 6 feet...highest in 
the mouth of the Bay. Low pressure continues to deepen slightly as 
it departs the coast this evening. Winds back to the northwest and 
decrease as the gradient relaxes. Gale warnings will be replaced 
by Small Craft Advisory headlines...likely running through midnight. Seas will subside 
through the overnight...falling below 5 feet first in the southern waters by 
early Thursday morning and in the northern waters Thursday afternoon. Another 
area of low pressure crosses the waters Thursday morning as high 
pressure builds over the Midwest. Another period of Small Craft Advisory conditions 
is possible Thursday night with northwesterly winds increasing to 15-20 knots 
over the Bay and around 20 knots over the coastal waters. Seas 
respond...building to 4-6 feet...highest 20 nm out. 
Thereafter...high pressure settles over the waters Friday through the 
weekend...resulting in sub Small Craft Advisory conditions. The next front 
approaches the waters Sun night into Monday. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
tidal departures remain 1.5 to 2 feet over the Lower Bay this 
afternoon. Elsewhere...departures generally at or below 1 feet. Winds will 
back around to the northwest and decrease through early evening. This will 
allow departures to drop off. Additional headlines are not 
anticipated at this time. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 10 PM EST this evening for anz633- 
635>638. 
Gale Warning until 10 PM EST this evening for anz634-650-652- 
654-656-658.
