NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
923 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will build into and over the area from the northwest 
through Wednesday...then slide off the coast on Thursday. A 
frontal boundary will develop along the coast by Friday into the 
weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Wednesday morning/... 
latest water vapor imagery and 30/00z radiosonde observation upper air plots place 
-3 Standard dev middle-level longwave trough over the eastern Continental U.S....with the 
trough axis aligned north-S over the central Appalachians. Remnant middle- 
level moisture has combined with forcing for ascent from the 
strong upper trough and steep low/middle level lapse rates for a few 
light showers over the eastern Virginia Piedmont this evening. Cape 
continues to be overdone in convective models...so shower activity 
is not being handled well. Expect current trends to diminish...but 
cannot rule out a stray shower or two overnight from the Piedmont 
into central Virginia. However...coverage and confidence is not high enough 
to go more than 10% probability of precipitation. Dry low-levels will also make it very 
difficult to get measurable precipitation. Expect generally partly cloudy 
skies overnight from the Piedmont into central Virginia as bufr soundings 
indicate that the middle cloud deck will stick around. Temperature forecast 
remains on track with lows generally in the middle 50s to low 
60s...nearly 10 degrees below normal. Richmond record low for July 30 
is 58 degrees and the current forecast is 61. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Wednesday morning through Friday/... 
a trough aloft lingers over the eastern Continental U.S. Through Wednesday... 
before weakening/shifting farther west by Thursday/Friday. Wednesday 
will have continued subsidence keeping dry conditions in place 
with a slight warming trend but still in the low/middle 80s for 
highs. Lows Wednesday night in the upper 50s to middle 60s. Weak surface high 
pressure will be off the coast for Thursday...with south-southeast low level flow 
across the area. Only a very slight increase in humidity is 
expected...otherwise partly to mostly sunny with high temperatures in the 
middle to upper 80s. By Friday...Bermuda high pressure begins to 
rebound across the western Atlantic with a frontal boundary 
developing along the Virginia/NC coast. This feature will be the focus 
for increased thunderstorm chances locally (especially aftn)...and thus 
will carry solid chance probability of precipitation (30-40%). With plenty of clouds around 
and precipitation possible...maximum temperatures Friday will likely be a touch cooler 
than Thursday. Highs in the low/middle 80s. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
forecast rationale remains largely the same for medium range period. 
Persistent upper level trough over the eastern third of the Continental U.S. 
Will retrograde back west into the MS valley ahead of the building 
western Atlantic ridge. This will allow for precipitable water values/deep layer 
moisture ramping up through the period. Thus, scattered rain showers expected 
through the period ahead of the advancing coastal front/inverted 
trough, which will locate along/just off the mid-Atlantic/southeast 
coast Saturday, eventually moving inland across the coastal plain by 
Monday. Given that there is no significant forcing mechanism to key 
in on, will lean towards climatology and use diurnally driven probability of precipitation 
through the Sat-Tuesday time period. For temps, look for highs to remain 
at or below climatology normal...generally ranging into the l-M 80s 
Sunday/Monday...85 to 90 on Tuesday ahead of an approaching cold 
front. Early morning lows in the 60s Sun morning, incrementally 
increasing to u60s to around 70 by early Monday/Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation /01z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
generally clearing skies across the akq forecast area. Weak area of 
high pressure will slide over the area overnight. Middle level wave 
passing through the middle-Atlantic may be strong enough to help 
initiate some very isolated showers across the area. Expect winds to 
veer to the S/southeast Wednesday afternoon with a scattered cumulus field developing. 


Outlook...dry weather is forecast through Thursday. There will be a 
a chance for mainly afternoon/evening thunderstorms Friday. VFR is expected 
outside of precipitation through Friday. 


Note: observations from ksby are not readily available due to a 
communications problem. Return to service is unknown at this time. 
However...current information may be obtained by calling into the 
ASOS site directly. Amend not schedule will be appended to the ksby taf 
until further notice. 


&& 


Marine... 
latest observation reflect north-NE winds across the waters this aftn, with 
slackening pressure gradient over the region as high pressure builds 
in from the Ohio Valley. Light winds continue ~10 knots late this afternoon and 
tonight. Seas 2-3ft, waves 1-2 feet. Winds remain at or below 10 knots Wednesday/ Wednesday 
night as surface hi pressure remains overhead. Winds veer around to the 
east-southeast by Thursday as the high slides offshore and low pressure passes well north 
of the local area. Coastal front/inverted trough approaches from the 
east by the weekend...with winds veering around to the S-SW late 
Friday into the weekend with rain chances increasing again over the 
waters. 


&& 


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