NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
933 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Synopsis... 
a frontal boundary remains nearly stationary across northern 
North Carolina through Friday. Weak waves of low pressure will 
move east along this boundary... bringing unsettled conditions to 
the region. Weak high pressure returns for a mostly dry later 
Friday and Saturday...followed by increasing rain chances with the 
next weather system Sunday into Monday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Friday morning/... 
cancelled the watch at 9 PM as the storms have moved out of that 
region. Despite most of the forecast area wedged in a cool airmass at the 
surface... merging boundaries along with strong middle level lapse rates 
supports continuing the convection for the rest of the evening. 
Cool surface air preventing strong winds from reaching the grnd...but 
numerous reports of small hail past several hours as the storms continue to 
pulse. Areas of fog becoming widespread across the region and will 
continue to do so through the overnight hours. Issued a dense fog 
advisory through 10 am Friday over the waters given current conditons. 
Don't see visibilities improving over the water until after sunrise. Convection 
slowly tapers off through the night to slght chance along the coast 
after 08z. Some drizzle possible as well. Lows in the u40s-l50s 
except M-u50s SW. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Friday morning through Saturday night/... 
drier period expected for Friday and Saturday, as front pushes a 
bit farther south of the area, as surface high pressure builds down 
across the area later Friday and early Saturday. Expect some 
lingering clouds, especially along the coast through Friday 
morning. Could see some patchy drizzle/light rain, but with drier 
air aloft filtering in...chances of measuring are low. Highs 
Friday in the u50s to low 60s north...to middle 70s south. 


Increasing cloudiness but continued mainly dry Friday night. 
Slightly cooler with early morning lows...ranging from in the 
upper 40s to middle 50s Eastern Shore/Northern Neck to upper 50s/near 60 
southeast coast. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Thursday/... 
dry conditions to begin the extended period will be short lived as 
the next storm system approaches from the west. Upper/surface high 
pressure slides off the coast Sat morning as a warm front lifts into 
the region. Lead wave lifts along the front into the Ohio Valley Sat 
afternoon...with associated moisture advecting into the region Sat 
afternoon. Showers expected to spread into the Piedmont and northern Virginia 
as early as Sat afternoon. Isentropic fields suggest that precipitation may 
arrive faster as the low levels moisten due to onshore flow. Thus 
have sped trends up slightly. Regardless...Sat expected to be partly 
cloudy to mostly cloudy. Expect widespread showers to spread into 
the region Sat night into Sunday morning as low pressure pushes over 
the central Appalachians. Several perturbations in the upper flow 
will provide forcing for ascent along the front. Periods of showers 
continue Sunday into Sunday night. Have increased probability of precipitation to likely 
except in the southeast Sunday. Model consensus now drops the front over 
the area late Sunday into Sunday evening...with the best chances for 
meaningful/beneficial rainfall coming along the front. Likely probability of precipitation 
for all. Low pressure deepens offshore Monday with lingering moisture 
and lift providing for scattered showers. Thereafter...upper level 
ridge strengthens over the western Continental U.S....resulting in troughing through 
the middle of next week. European model (ecmwf) continues to stall the front along 
the coast Monday due to weaker upper level forcing compared to its GFS 
counterpart. GFS pushes the front off the shore with high pressure 
building in its wake. Prefer the GFS based on the pattern...but will 
not completely discount the European model (ecmwf). Will keep mention of slight 
chance probability of precipitation inland and low end chance probability of precipitation along the coast to 
account for uncertainty Tuesday and Wednesday as the European model (ecmwf) lifts an area of 
low pressure along the stalled boundary. 


Temperatures expected to remain seasonable with highs in the upper 60s/low 
70s (cooler along the coast). Warmest day being Monday with highs in 
the middle/possibly upper 70s. Lows generally in the 50s. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Friday through Tuesday/... 
as of 00z...all the taf sites were north of the front and is 
expected to remain that way through the period with mainly 
northeast winds. Widespread IFR or LIFR is present. Some vlifr is 
possible overnight. At ecg...VFR conds appear to be in the process of 
lowering to IFR or LIFR and should remain that way through the 
overnight hours. Improvement is expected during the day Friday but 
only to MVFR. Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms are possible overnight 
especially southern portions which will need to be added when confidence 
in timing increases. 


Outlook...mainly dry weather is expected into Saturday but IFR 
conditions may redevelop Friday evening and continue into Saturday 
morning. A warm front pulls north Saturday night with the next low 
pressure moves east out of the plains states Sunday. Widespread rain 
is expected Saturday night and Sunday with a chance of rain 
continuing into Tuesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
quasi-stationary front analyzed just south of the waters this afternoon 
with low pressure just west of the area. Low pressure slides 
offshore tonight into Friday...while the lingering frontal 
boundary drops farther south into the Carolinas. NE low level wind is 
expected to increase to 15-20kt north of Parramore Island...and 
nwps/wnawave both agree west/seas increasing to 4-6ft seas later 
tonight into Friday. An Small Craft Advisory continues through early Saturday for 
the building seas. High pressure builds in from the north Friday 
night into Saturday. Current model guidance slides the low well 
offshore before the high builds in. Hence...forecast wind speeds 
are not as strong and forecast seas are correspondingly lower...so 
Small Craft Advisory conditions are not expected to persist into Saturday at this time. 


High pressure slides off the NE coast Saturday as the next storm 
system approaches from the west. Onshore flow of 10 to 15 knots 
persists through Saturday night. Seas generally 3 to 4 feet. Low 
pressure lifts into the northern middle Atlantic region Sat night as a warm 
front lifts over the waters. Flow becomes southwesterly sun at or below 15 knots. Cold 
front drops through the region Sun night...stalling along the coast 
Monday. Lack of low level cold air advection and gradient winds expected to keep 
conditions sub-Small Craft Advisory behind the front. Northwest winds around 15 knots build 
seas to 4 feet Monday night...possibly up to 5 feet near 20 nm out. The 
front stalls along the coast/just offshore through the middle of next 
week.
