NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
851 PM EDT sun Aug 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure pushes across the area late tonight through Monday 
night. High pressure builds back across the southeast and Middle 
Atlantic States for the midweek period. 


&& 


Near term /through Monday/... 
satellite imagery tonight shows the upper level low over northestern Georgia 
and the associated moisture plume along the coast sending clouds 
northward across the County Warning Area. At this point...the moisture is still in 
the higher level of the atmosphere and earlier sprinkles that 
moved through the area have become less numerous over the last 
few hours. Overnight tonight...the upper low will begin to open up 
as the upper trough lifts northeastward. The coastal front and 
moisture will continue to lift northward with ceilings gradually 
lowering. As the forcing with the trough slides through Monday 
morning...expect to see showers...now down over SC/southern 
NC...spread into the region...mainly NE NC and the Virginia Tidewater. 
So have increased probability of precipitation to low likely values...but expect quantitative precipitation forecast to be 
low...mainly less than 0.25". By Monday afternoon...the trough 
axis should be past the region and the chance for rain should 
begin to diminish as moisture axis pushes back off the coast. 


Previous discussion... 
middle-afternoon surface analysis reveals ~1020 mb surface high pressure 
in place across the Lower Middle-Atlantic into the Carolinas. Latest 
infrared/WV satellite imagery continues to show areas of middle/high 
clouds streaming north-northeast across the Carolinas and eastern Tennessee Valley 
toward our region...as weakening upper level low lifts north from 
the Gulf Coast into the southeast Continental U.S.. regional radar mosaic 
showing showers as far north as coastal SC...and expect these 
showers to continue to slowly lift north this evening. Despite 
only weak overrunning/minimal isentropic lift and dry air in low 
levels, middle/upper dynamics could be enough to generate some 
scattered showers late tonight. Have adjusted pop timing to be 
mainly around and after midnight, with majority of 30% pop 
oriented across the NE NC coastal plain. Forecast soundings 
indicate low levels moisten up enough that as this moisture pushes 
across, a passing shower or two are also possible across Hampton 
Roads and south central Virginia late tonight. Have therefore gone with a 
slight chance mention over these areas. Overall, partly cloudy 
conditions tonight will become mostly cloudy to overcast and 
milder overnight, with early morning lows generally 65 to 70. 


&& 


Short term /Monday night through Wednesday/... 
Monday/Monday night... 
lingering 20-30% rain chances continue for all but Maryland Eastern 
Shore areas from Monday morning into the afternoon. Accounted for a 
little bit of a lull in the late morning/early afternoon hours as 
first slug of light overrunning precipitation pushes offshore/ however, 
with SW flow bringing a gradual increase in precipitable water values Monday/Monday 
night...another round of showers is expected as low level 
lift/additional upper support arrives coincident with diurnal 
heating. Moved probability of precipitation a bit farther into the night Monday night with 
timing slowing slightly. A bit more muggy Monday west/ highs Monday mainly 
in the upper 80s to around 90f. By all indications, surface front 
locates from near Hatteras to just off the Florida/Georgia coast...and thus 
expect any issues with heavy rainfall to remain confined to our 
south. However, with an influx of tropical moisture from the 
remnants of Erika, brief heavy downpours will be possible across 
southeast coastal plain. 


Tuesday/Wednesday... 
weak surface high pressure will remain in place across the region, 
with showers diminishing to begin the period Tuesday morning. The 
southeast (subtropical) ridge builds back west across the southeast 
coast on Tuesday, as weak troughing taking shape from the western 
Gulf Coast to the Ozarks. Models eventually close this wave off 
by Wednesday morning...and this in tandem with the antecedent 
moist airmass and upper ridge aloft will bring increasing heat and 
humidity for the midweek period. The good news is that forcing 
for any late day showers/storms is weak and mainly to our 
south...and thus probability of precipitation remain low both days. Will carry a 20% pop 
across the far S/southeast for isolated afternoon/early evening showers/thunderstorms 
each day. Expect highs Tuesday in the upper 80s to lower 90s...and 
around 90/lower 90s for most on Wednesday. Early morning lows 
each day upper 60s to low 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
the longwave pattern next week is expected to be characterized by 
broad middle/upper ridging from the north-central to northestern US...with a 
weak trough in vicinity of the Gulf Coast. Broad east-southeast flow beneath 
the ridge is expected to bring increasing tropical moisture into 
the southeastern US. The bulk of this moisture is expected to be from ts 
Erika...or its remnants at that time. The general model consensus 
shows the middle-level anticyclone centered from the Ohio Valley to 
middle-Atlantic through at least Wednesday...which should keep 
moisture suppressed S of the region. If the middle-level high center 
retreats far enough north some of this moisture could spread into the 
area later in the week. However...if the high remains overhead 
moisture should remain S of the region. Weak cold front and upper 
trough pass through the middle-Atlantic on Thursday but this looks to 
have little affect on the current weather pattern. 


Warm and increasingly humid through the week with forecast highs in 
the upper 80s to low 90s with middle-upper 80s at the immediate coast. 
By Thursday/Friday forecast highs drop into the middle/upper 80s...with 
low 80s at the beaches. Forecast lows are in the upper 60s to low 
70s. 


&& 


Aviation /01z Monday through Friday/... 
weak high pressure will continue to dominate the weather during the 
00z taf period. An upper level low over the Gulf Coast states was 
helping to trigger scattered precipitation over the Carolinas. The upper low 
will move northeast and shear out on Monday. 


Early Sunday evening...radar and satellite as well as surface 
observations indicated layered cloudiness above 10k feet over the taf 
sites. The column was relatively dry below that. NAM bufr soundings 
indicate a lowering of the moist air to around 5-8k feet over southern 
portions of the area. Lift will be weak but sufficient to produce a 
chance to likelihood of light rain at orf and ecg by Monday morning. 
Kept visibility at 7 plus as there are doubts that the surface will get 
close to saturation but did include MVFR ceilings at ecg. The rest of 
the taf sites could get a few sprinkles during the taf period but 
not enough to mention for the tafs. Winds will remain at or below 10 knots 
and generally from a southerly component. 


Outlook...high pressure will continue to dominate with a few periods 
of slight to low chances for rain. Most of the period through Friday 
will be dry. Some limited cigs/vsby...mainly no lower than MVFR... 
may occur during the early morning hours. 


&& 


Marine... 
high pressure remains over the local waters. The result is a light 
onshore flow (se to e) at or below 10 knots. Seas 2 feet in the north and 2-3 feet 
south. Waves across the Bay 1-2 feet. A slight strengthening of the 
gradient tonight will push speeds to 10-15 knots. An extended period of 
sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions is expected through middle week as high pressure 
prevails over the water. Wind directions generally SW to west through 
Wednesday...at or below 15 knots. A backdoor cold front will attempt to drop into 
the region late in the week. Seas average 2-3 feet and waves 1-2 feet. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...none.
