NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
530 am EST Monday Feb 8 2016 


Synopsis... 
low pressure well off the North Carolina coast will move farther 
out to sea today. Another area of low pressure dives southeast 
from the Great Lakes this afternoon...and moves across the area 
tonight into Tuesday morning. The low then deepens off the coast 
as an upper level trough swings through the region Tuesday afternoon 
and evening. High pressure slowly returns Wednesday through Friday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest analysis indicating powerful coastal surface low (sub 980 mb) 
well offshore of the NC coast...with significant pressure rises 
now being observed across the County Warning Area as the low pulls farther off to 
the east-northeast. Still breezy/windy along the coast but wind speeds have 
dropped off enough to allow the wind adsy to expire. Temperatures will 
likely fall into the upper 20s across the Piedmont before 
daybreak...into the lower 30s across the I-95 corridor and middle 30s 
closer to the coast. Skies have become partly cloudy to mostly 
clear well inland...and this clearing will reach east to the coast 
through the next few hours (although staying mostly cloudy across the 
Eastern Shore along with a 20% for light rain). 


For today...forecast appears on track for most of the area to have 
dry conditions through most of the day...with seasonable high 
temperatures in the middle/upper 40s across the north and at the coast...to the 
lower 50s across interior southern Virginia and NE NC. This will be short-lived 
however...as potent upper level shortwave and strong pv feature is 
diving southeast through the middle MS valley. Models are in good agreement 
that this will continue pushing southeast all the way to the Gulf of 
Mexico by 00z this evening. Surface low pressure is prognosticated to form 
across southern Virginia this evening and will slide through southeast Virginia/eastern NC this 
evening and overnight. Pt sunny conds will turn mostly cloudy 
later this afternoon...with probability of precipitation ramping up rather quickly from west to east 
between 21z and 00z. Still too warm for this to be anything but 
rain across the akq County Warning Area. 


Will carry likely probability of precipitation for most areas this evening as a 3-6 hour 
period of deeper moisture and lift moves through the region. This 
system will still be somewhat moisture starved so quantitative precipitation forecast amounts will 
average 0.10 to 0.20" or less except across the Eastern Shore/Northern Neck 
where slightly higher amts will be possible. Critical thicknesses 
and boundary layer temperatures remain fairly warm to have rain as ptype 
through the evening...though across the Maryland Eastern Shore values are 
marginally colder and could see some snow mixed in...particularly 
Dorchester Colorado. After midnight...the more favorable lift slides 
offshore and deep moisture diminishes. Critical thicknesses do fall 
below 1300 M west of I-95...but the trend is warmer compared to 
previous model runs so while a burst of snow showers after 
midnight will be possible across northern zones west of ches Bay...accumulations 
are looking unlikely. Generally a chance for a few rain/snow showers 
closer to the coast. Lows around 30 f across the Piedmont to the middle 
30s closer to the coast. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday/... 
first short wave exits to the NE Tuesday with rain/snow showers lingering the 
longest across northestern sctns where high chance probability of precipitation will be maintained. 
Latest suite of models continue to depict a lull in precipitation Tuesday 
morning /early afternoon across southern half of forecast area before the next short wave 
dives southeast across the northestern counties late Tuesday aftn/evening. This allows 
for some prtl sun through the day (mix of clouds/sun)... allowing 
temperatures to rise to between 40-45 f. Have bumped probability of precipitation up to likely once 
again across the NE Tuesday aftn/evening...this time colder air is 
prognosticated to overspread the County Warning Area...especially after sunset. Not a 
long-lived event...but potential for 1-2" of snow exists across 
mainly areas to the NE of metropolitan Richmond where better lift is 
expected...especially the Northern Neck and Eastern Shore. Lesser 
accumulations <1" possible elsewhere (genly little to no 
accumulation for southern Virginia and NE nc). Partial clearing after 
midnight with diminishing chances for precipitation. Lows m20s west to 
lower 30s along the coast. Too early to consider a winter weather adsy 
for NE portions of the County Warning Area...so will continue mention in severe weather potential statement. 


A deep upper level trough prevails across the eastern Continental U.S. On Wednesday as 
strong ridge will persist along the West Coast. Overall...should 
have drier air in place across the region and some subsidence in 
wake of Tuesday night's shortwave that will be exiting off to the 
NE. Still fairly steep lapse rates due to the cold pool aloft so 
expect partly sunny/variably cloudy conds. Kept 20% probability of precipitation for snow 
showers across northestern areas through the morning hours. Otw...pt sunny and 
cold. Highs u30s north to l40s south. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
cold trough of low pressure gets carved out across the eastern Continental U.S. 
For the duration of the long term period. Dry west-northwest flow aloft will 
limit any precipitation chances through the period....with below temperatures 
remaining in place. Highs Thursday- Sat mainly in the 30s to low 40s. Lows 
through the period generally in the teens and 20s. 00z GFS/European model (ecmwf) and 
ensembles show Arctic front crossing the region next weekend...so 
have lowered temperatures even more for Sat night/sun...lows mainly 
in the teens (possibly even colder with highs Sunday struggling 
to get out of the middle-upper 20s. 




&& 


Aviation /10z Monday through Friday/... 
low pressure off the NC CST...will intensify as it moves NE into the 
northern Atlantic during today taking precipitation with it. North winds will continue 
to gust between 20 and 30 knots early this morng...esply at 
orf...ecg...and sometimes sby. Then...mainly VFR conditions are 
expected at all taf sites through much of today...as forecast area will 
be between exiting low pressure in the Atlantic and a cold front 
approaching from the west. Then...from this eveng through Wednesday...a strong 
upper level low will drop east-southeast from the Great Lakes/Ohio Valley into the NE 
U.S. This could provide periods of MVFR to IFR conditions...as 
several shortwaves rotate around the upper low and over the region. 
These waves could produce periods of snow showers Tuesday night through 
Wednesday. The upper low will begin to lift well NE of the area Wednesday night 
with hi pressure building in through Friday. 


&& 


Marine... 
low pressure well off the NC CST early this morng...will intensify as 
it tracks NE into the northern Atlantic during today. Gale force and Small Craft Advisory 
force winds will subside by around midday across all the waters...as 
the low quickly moves away to the NE. But...sca's for seas will 
continue through at least Tuesday night for the coastal waters...as seas 9 
to 15 feet...will gradually subside later today through Tuesday night. 
Another round of Small Craft Advisory conditions may occur Wednesday night and Thursday...as 
strong northwest winds are expected. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
river flood warnings remain in effect for the Blackwater above 
Franklin...Nottoway at Sebrell...cashie at Windsor. See flsakq for 
details. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
coastal flood and high surf advisories remain in effect for Virginia 
Beach and coastal Currituck County through this morning's high 
tide cycle...and have added a coastal flood adsy and high surf for Atlantic 
side of the Eastern Shore as well for the upcoming high tide this 
morning. Seas to 8-12ft nearshore will cause beach erosion and 
possibly some dune erosion. Expect minor coastal flooding a few 
hours before and after the high tide this morning. For Hampton 
Roads and areas along the James River have issued a statement for 
water levels approaching but generally staying just below minor food 
thresholds this morning.
