NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
430 am EDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Synopsis... 
cool high pressure builds in from the northwest this morning and 
settles over the middle Atlantic and northeast states this afternoon 
through tonight. The high will become centered from New England to 
the Canadian Maritimes Thursday and Friday...maintaining northeast 
flow and much cooler than average temperatures across the region. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest analysis showing surface high pressure centered from Michigan south 
into northern Kentucky...and beginning to ridge east of the Appalachians 
early this morning. Winds remain gusty...particularly along the 
coast due to rapid pressure rises and strong cold advection but 
wind speeds have dropped off somewhat over the past few hours. Skies 
have generally cleared except across Hampton Roads and NE NC where broken 
cloud cover persists through middle morning. Will maintain freeze 
warning through 9 am...although it may have some trouble verifying 
over eastern and southern portions due to continued mixing (lows 
may end up closer to 33-34 f in these areas). Still is quite cold 
for middle April...with temperatures likely to fall a few more 
degrees through 7 am...into the upper 20s to lower 30s over much of 
central Virginia and into the middle-upper 30s along the southeast coastal areas. 
Perhaps even more impressive will be how cold today's highs will 
be even with ample sunshine. Low level thicknesses suggest 
guidance values of the middle-upper 40s at the immediate coast to the 
lower 50s over interior southern Virginia should be about as warm as it 
will get (this is around 20 f below avg). Have included a climate 
section as this may rival record low maximum temperatures at Norfolk. 




High pressure settles over the area later this afternoon into this 
evening and winds will subside. Will likely need another freeze 
warning for portions of the area tonight/Thursday morning. With SW flow 
aloft and the surface high becoming centered over northern New England 
overnight...there will tend to be increasing low level moisture 
and cloud cover from the southeast. BUFKIT soundings show increasing low 
level moisture across southeast Virginia and NE NC overnight so temperatures should 
remain well above freezing there (lows in upper 30s to lower 40s)...with 
a freeze more probable over central and south central Virginia where 
skies generally stay mostly clear and winds decouple. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday/... 
the trend that starts tonight/early Thursday morning looks to continue 
on Thursday. Setup supports a strong inversion above 900 mb which will 
tend to trap any developing marine layer cloudiness. Not much 
chance for measurable precipitation given a very dry airmass above the 
inversion...but do think skies will end up mostly cloudy over most 
of the County Warning Area from I-95 east. This will keep highs well below 
average...mainly in the lower to middle 50s...with upper 50s to around 60 
f over the Piedmont. A deeper layer of moisture from 950 to about 
800 mb will eventually move into all areas Thursday night/Friday as a 
coastal trough continues to push closer to the coast. Will carry a 
slight chance (20%) probability of precipitation Thursday night through Friday. While the overall 
airmass warms quite a bit on Friday...have sided on cooler edge of 
guidance for highs due to clouds and persistent NE flow. Lows 
mainly in the 40s Thursday night with highs Friday generally 55-60 f. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
an area of surface low pressure is expected to develop on a stalled 
boundary off the southeast coast Friday night. The low should track NE 
well off the Carolina coast on Sat. This feature may bring a few 
rain showers to far southeast Virginia/NE NC during this timeframe. 
Meanwhile...an upper level trough over the upper Midwest will swing 
into the eastern Great Lakes Friday night and skirt across northern Virginia on Sat. A 
weak surface low will be associated with this feature and may bring a 
brief round of showers to far northern portions of the forecast area (including the 
Maryland/Virginia eastern shore) Sat afternoon/early evening before moving offshore 
and dissipating. The surface low associated with the Great Lakes trough 
is expected to phase with the aforementioned coastal low Sat 
night...but this should occur over New England and have very little 
impact to the Middle Atlantic States. Surface high pressure builds into the 
region sun...then slides offshore by sun evening as a relatively 
flat (west to east oriented) frontal boundary sags down into the 
area Monday night into Tuesday. Weak shortwave energy and a subsequent surface 
low traveling along this boundary may bring another shot of 
precipitation to the area on Mon/Tue. GFS precipitation-generation and 
general movement is a bit aggressive versus the European model (ecmwf)...therefore 
tried to split the difference with the pop forecast and limited 
coverage to no higher than 40 percent. 


Temperatures are expected to be straight-forward Sat night through 
Sun night as high pressure crosses the region. Expect lows near 
normal both nights in the 40s (lower 50s possible immediate southeast Virginia/NE 
NC coasts). Highs Sat/sun range from roughly 65 degrees far NE to 70 
degrees SW. As the flat frontal boundary starts to sag into the Middle 
Atlantic States Monday through Tuesday...the temperature forecast becomes tricky 
in regard to where exactly the warm sector develops. With precipitation 
expected to approach the area on Monday...increasing cirrus should keep 
high temperatures in the upper 60s west of I-95 with warmer temperatures in the 
lower 70s east of I-95 (mid-upper 60s Maryland/Virginia eastern shore). Highs 
Tuesday should be in the lower 70s inland and in the upper 60s near the 
immediate ches Bay and Atlantic coasts. Low temperatures areawide on 
Monday/Tuesday night should also be warm with readings in the 50s (or about 
10 degrees above normal). 


&& 


Aviation /08z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
strong cold front will push farther out to sea this morng...as 
cold hi pressure builds into the area. Back edge of precipitation will move well 
off the CST this morng...with any MVFR conditions quickly becoming 
VFR conditions. Expect north winds 10 to 20 knots with gusts to around 30 
knots this morng...to become NE and diminish over most of the area 
later this afternoon into early this eveng...as the hi builds over the 
region then shifts into New England. NE winds will remain at 10 to 
15 knots and gusty at orf and ecg tonight through Thursday...as the hi 
strengthens over northern New England into the Canadian Maritimes. NE or 
east flow will push SC deck of clouds back into the area late Wednesday night 
through Thursday. 


&& 


Marine... 
have extended the Gale Warning for the ches Bay zones until 10 am this 
morng. Otherwise...gale warnings will gradually end at 7 am in the 
rivers...and 10 am or 1 PM today over the remainder of the waters. The 
gale warnings will be replaced with sca's later this morng into 
early this afternoon...as hi pressure builds in and north winds gradually begin to 
diminish a bit. Hi pressure slides NE across New England and into the 
Canadian Maritimes tonight into Friday...as a weak coastal trough develops off 
the southeast and middle Atlantic CST. This will result in a prolonged period of 
NE winds and elevated seas through the end of the week.
