NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
434 PM EDT Thursday Jul 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
unsettled weather conditions will prevail through the Holiday 
weekend as a stationary boundary locates over the region. 
Day time temperatures will be slightly below to near normal. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Friday morning/... 
latest regional radar mosaic depicts scattered to numerous showers 
and thunderstorms developing along a stationary boundary over the 
local area. Another area of showers associated with a middle level 
shortwave was moving into the Piedmont as of this writing. 
Warm/moist airmass is in place over the region...with precipitable waters  climbing 
toward 2 inches (+2 Standard dev) and dewpoints in the 70s. Expect 
activity to continue to increase through the remainder of the afternoon 
as shortwave energy and increasing winds aloft provide forcing for 
ascent along the boundary. Have increased probability of precipitation late this afternoon 
into the evening hours to categorical across the southern half of the 
forecast area. The main threat will be moderate to heavy rainfall 
due to the anomalously moist airmass. Corfidi vectors and storm 
motion suggest that storms will have good forward 
propagation...limiting training cells. Ffg also ranges from 2-4 
inches...so not watch is planned at this time. A marginal risk for severe 
weather exists over the region...south of the boundary this evening. 
Weak low-level and deep shear is forecast over the region...but 
deep/rich moisture could contribute to potential for water loading 
in downdrafts...making strong gusty winds possible. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts will 
range from one half to one inch Richmond southward...and less than half an 
inch north. This matches well with sref/wpc guidance. 


Another complex forecast over the Kentucky/Tennessee valleys tonight...pushing 
eastward through the overnight areas. Meanwhile...precipitation chances expected 
to persist along the coast late tonight. The complex is expected 
to dissipate somewhat as it moves over the Piedmont and southern Virginia 
early Friday morning. Lows tonight in the upper 60s to low 70s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Friday morning through Sunday/... 
unsettled weather continues through the short term period as the 
surface front remains over the middle-Atlantic region. Shortwave 
energy drops over the Midwest Friday morning...tracking eastward over the 
Ohio Valley Friday afternoon. Associated surface low prognosticated to track eastward 
along the stalled boundary...locating over the central 
Appalachians late Friday. A secondary area of low pressure locates 
over central NC Friday afternoon. Strongest moisture flux remains 
across NC...but precipitable waters  prognosticated to remain +2 Standard dev over the local 
area. The result will be additional widespread showers Friday 
afternoon and evening. Some of the showers will be heavy at times. 
Will maintain a chance for thunder as sref and NAM guidance 
maintain modest instability. Deep layer southwesterly flow persists Friday 
night as shortwave energy lifts along the Ohio Valley. May see a 
break in the precipitation late Friday night...but will maintain solid 
chance probability of precipitation due to the airmass and available energy. Trough axis 
locates over the middle-Atlantic region Sat as the surface low re- 
organizes over the region. Best chances (chance pops) will be 
along the coast as low-middle level flow becomes westerly. Baggy trough 
remains over the southeastern Continental U.S. Sun as the front slowly sags southward. The 
result will be additional chances for showers/thunderstorms Sun 
afternoon across the southern and southeastern zones. Farther north...high 
pressure and drying conditions will limit probability of precipitation to slight chance. 


High temperatures will generally be in the upper 70s north to middle 85 south 
Friday and Sat...warming into middle-upper 80s sun with less precipitation and 
cloud cover. Cooler along the coast. Lows generally in the upper 
60s to low 70s. 


Storm total quantitative precipitation forecast amounts expected to range from one to two inches 
across the southern half of the forecast area. This is in line with 
wpc/sref quantitative precipitation forecast amounts. Flood Watch headlines for Sat will be 
dependent on how much rainfall the area experience overnight 
tonight. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
the medium range period is characterized by continued low amplitude 
upper troughing over the eastern Continental U.S.. expect that with occasional 
upper disturbances/perturbations pushing across the region, and with 
weak surface trough along the southeast coast through much of the period, our 
current pattern of mainly diurnally driven showers/storms will 
continue through much of the first half of next week. Have kept probability of precipitation 
in the chance range by day, slight chance or less overnight. Highest probability of precipitation 
in the period are on Monday with quick moving upper shortwave 
pinwheeling across the area Monday and Monday night per both the 
12z/02 European model (ecmwf) and GFS. Forecast precipitable water values will also remain high 
through the period...lingering around +2 S.D. Above normal. 
Accordingly, we'll need to be on guard for heavy rainfall with 
showers through the period. Additionally, with this increased 
humidity/dewpoints through the period, took a degree or two off high 
temperatures Mon-Wed...generally favoring a typical middle-July 
warm/moderately humid set up across the area through much of next 
week. 


&& 


Aviation /21z Thursday through Tuesday/... 
weak frontal boundary now pushing through central Virginia...with 
scattered showers/isolated thunderstorms. Ksby had thunderstorms earlier...appears 
more stable up that way for the rest of today/tonight so will keep 
thunderstorms out of the sby taf. Elsewhere...surface front continues to drop 
south through tonight and stall in far southern/northern NC on 
Friday. Have generally hit the late afternoon/evening timeframe for showers/thunderstorms 
at the rest of the terminals...with ceilings lowering to low end 
MVFR/IFR after 06z. 


The frontal boundary remains over mainly southern Virginia/NE NC through the 
weekend with continued chances for shras/tstms...especially Friday afternoon/Friday 
night. Highest chance for more showers/thunderstorms becomes confined mainly to 
southern 1/2 of the area Sat. Front lifts back north on sun with continued 
chance for showers/tstms...but mainly VFR conds are expected outside 
of precipitation. 


&& 


Marine... 
unsettled weather conditions continue over the waters over the 
Holiday weekend, as weak frontal boundary over the area will remain nearly 
stationary over the region into Sat over the southern waters. SW 
winds 10 knots or less S of the boundary...vrb/N-NE winds 10 knots or less 
along and north of the boundary. Waves in the Bay average 1-2 feet and 
seas on the coastal waters average 2-4 feet Friday into the weekend with sub- 
Small Craft Advisory conds to persist through the weekend. The stalled front will 
also result in several episodes of rain showers/thunderstorms into sun. Gusty 
winds/heavy rain will be possible in any storms the next few days. 


&& 


Climate... 
June 2015 climate: 


At norfolk: 
*avg temperature of 78.7 f ranks as the 7th warmest on record. 
*Total precipitation of 8.34" ranks as 5th wettest on record. 


At richmond: 
*avg temperature of 77.92 f ranks as the 8th warmest on record. 


Precipitation total of 6.05" did not attain a top 10 ranking at 
ric Airport...but many locations in the metropolitan area...received in 
excess of 10.00 inches for the month.
