NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1000 PM EDT Friday Aug 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
a frontal boundary along the southeast coast will slowly drift 
north towards the middle Atlantic coast tonight. The front then 
stalls along the coast or just inland over the middle Atlantic 
region...keeping unsettled conditions in place through at least 
Monday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Saturday morning/... 
highly amplified flow over the Continental U.S. And western Atlantic ongoing this 
evening...highlighted by longwave troughing over the central Continental U.S. And 
longwave ridging over the western Atlantic. Plume of anomalous moisture 
visible on water vapor streaming northward in southwesterly flow from the eastern Gulf 
and off the southeast coast over the middle-Atlantic region. At the surface...low 
pressure resides over southeast Georgia/northern Florida with a stationary boundary 
extending northeastward along the southeast and middle-Atlantic coasts. Warm air advection/overrunning 
of the frontal boundary as well as small amplitude shortwaves 
lifting in southwesterly flow are producing a broad area of light-moderate 
precipitation over the local area this evening. Rainfall rates have been 
light...with storm total amounts through 930pm ranging from a few 
tenths to just over half an inch. Latest GFS 310k Omega is handling 
the current precipitation over the Piedmont and central Virginia well. Dry slot 
overspread southeast Virginia/NE NC earlier this evening...resulting in a brief 
lull in the precipitation. However...the location of the inverted 
trough/convergence and modest instability/shear...has resulted in 
scattered-numerous showers in that region. Will maintain high probability of precipitation through 
the evening...but expect the precipitation to begin lifting northward from the 
Piedmont and central Virginia by late this evening. Already beginning to see 
signs of the precipitation lifting from the north ctnrl NC. 


Models continue to indicate favorable forcing for ascent and 
abundant moisture (pwats at or above 2 inches) over the region tonight. 
Frontal boundary/inverted trough is expected to nudge to the east as 
the upper ridge retrogrades slightly. This places the best 
lift/Omega over southeast Virginia/NE NC and over the coastal waters. Will 
maintain categorical probability of precipitation along the coast with likely probability of precipitation east of 
Interstate 95 (tapering off to low end chance probability of precipitation over the Piedmont 
after midnight). Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts of one half inch up to one inch 
expected. Outside of urban and low lying areas...flooding is not 
anticipated as heaviest precipitation will fall in favorable locations. 
Rainfall rates also expected to remain low. Temperatures will generally 
hold steady overnight...generally in the middle-upper 60s to low 70s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Saturday morning through Monday/... 
frontal boundary is prognosticated to straddle the coast from the 
Delaware-Maryland-Virginia down along the southeast coast. The interaction of a steady 
influx of moisture and shortwave energy with the frontal boundary 
will maintain high precipitation chances...once again with the main focus 
along the coast and especially NE NC/southeast Virginia. Model soundings for 
kecg and korf are very moist...with surface convective available potential energy of 700-1500 j/kg... 
and unidirectional SW flow where winds are very light below 
700-500mb (at or below 20 kt). This is a favorable set-up for 
training precipitation especially along the stalled boundary. The 
potential for embedded thunderstorms also increases on Saturday 
near the coast. It is very possible that 3-6 hour precipitation totals 
could be upwards of 2.00 inches...especially in convection. If 
this occurs on top of rainfall received on Friday/Friday night...then 
the potential for a Flood Watch become increasingly likely. Will 
need to monitor trends and totals Friday evening/overnight to 
determine if additional totals on Saturday will exacerbate minor 
flooding potential in urban areas...low lying areas...areas of 
poor drainage...and in the vicinity of small streams/creeks. 
Please refer to hydrology section below and severe weather potential statement for additional 
details. Additional rainfall and threat for minor flooding 
continues into Sunday as overall synoptic conditions remain 
unchanged. Precipitation coverage starts to diminish from west to 
east on Monday as the front gets pulled offshore by Tropical Storm 
Bertha. 


High temperatures will run about 5-10 degrees below normal due to 
precipitation and cloudy skies. Highs Sat middle-upper 70s...sun around 80... 
Monday low-middle 80s. Lows will be near normal with readings in the 
middle 60s northwest to lower 70s southeast. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
the nearly stationary front and associated plume of Atlantic 
moisture should finally nudge offshore Monday night as a final 
wave of low pressure lifts NE along the boundary. This wave then 
pulls off the coast Tuesday. 30-40% probability of precipitation will be maintained over 
southeast portions in closer proximity to the surface boundary. A brief 
dry period is expected Tuesday night into early Wednesday as 
shortwave ridging passes overhead. A cold front then approaches 
from the northwest Wednesday and drops into the area Wednesday night. 
This will bring a chance of afternoon/evening showers/tstms. The 
front is prognosticated to drop into NC Thursday. 20-30% probability of precipitation will be 
included for southern portions to account for any uncertainty with 
respect to the frontal location. The front should eventually lift 
back north later in the week...but confidence with respect to timing 
and location is low...so minimal probability of precipitation will be continued. Highs 
Tuesday should average in the upper 80s...with upper 80s/ 
around 90 Wednesday ahead of the front. Highs should drop back 
into the middle/upper 80s Thursday and Friday behind the front. Low 
temperatures should average from the middle 60s to low 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
showers with light/occasionally moderate rain continue to push north 
into the region...affecting all akq taf sites. Ceilings continue to 
lower overnight and could see several hours where they drop to 1-2 
k feet overnight...with kric/ksby having highest chance for IFR 
ceilings/ below 1 kft. Some brief embedded thunderstorms possible as 
well...most likely at kecg/korf/kphf...but probability too low to 
include in tafs. 


Outlook...threat for showers/thunderstorms persist Sat/sun as moisture 
with stalled boundary along/just inland from the coast. Periodic 
flight restrictions will be possible in heavier showers/thunderstorms both 
days. Overall coverage of precipitation will gradually diminish Monday/Monday 
night. 


&& 


Marine... 
an inverted trough will remain off the coast tonight and steadily 
drift inland through the weekend. No flags are expected as wind 
speeds should remain at or below 15kt (direction averaging east/se) and 
seas/waves should remain below 5ft/4ft. Nevertheless...persistent 
onshore flow should build seas to around 3ft...with occasional 4ft 
seas out near 20nm. Waves in the mouth of the Bay should build to 
2-3ft...with 1-2ft elsewhere in the Bay. The system pushes 
offshore early next week as high pressure returns to the region. A 
cold front approaches from the northwest during the middle of next week. 
Overall sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions are expected to prevail during the 
early to middle portion of next week. However...some long period 
swell could encroach the area depending on the strength/track of 
ts Bertha. Current 01/12z wavewatch guidance brings 3-4ft swell 
out near 20nm Tuesday/Wednesday of next week. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
persistent rainfall along a slow-moving frontal boundary will 
bring steadily accumulating precipitation to the region the rest 
of today through at least Monday...with best accumulations focused 
over NE NC and southeast Virginia. Across the aforementioned southeast areas... 
storm total precipitation amounts of 2.50 to 3.50 inches (locally 
up to 4.00 inches) are anticipated over the next 48-72 hours. This 
may potentially cause minor flooding of urban areas...areas of 
poor drainage...low lying areas...and to rises of small 
streams/creeks. A Flood Watch may be needed later this evening or 
overnight depending on upstream precipitation trends. Will 
continue to highlight flooding potential in the severe weather potential statement (wbchwoakq). 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...moderate rip current risk from 8 am EDT Saturday through 
Saturday evening for mdz025. 
NC...moderate rip current risk from 8 am EDT Saturday through 
Saturday evening for ncz102. 
Virginia...moderate rip current risk from 8 am EDT Saturday through 
Saturday evening for vaz098>100. 
Marine...none.
