NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
354 PM EST sun Feb 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure over the middle Mississippi Valley will track across the 
Ohio Valley and into Pennsylvania tonight...and re-develop off the 
New Jersey coast Monday morning. Canadian high pressure returns to 
the region Tuesday and shifts offshore Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /through Monday/... 
the current surface analysis indicates a deepening 1003mb surface 
low over southern Illinois...with a cold front trailing back through the lower 
Mississippi Valley...an a warm front extending east-northeast across in/OH. 
Surface high pressure is now well off the southeast coast. Aloft...a 
vigorous shortwave trough is dropping through the Central Plains 
resulting the aforementioned strengthening low. Middle-level ridging 
still prevails locally and hence a dry forecast will be continued 
through 00z. 


Deeper moisture should be slow to reach east of the Appalachians this 
evening as the surface low should be over southern in/OH. The airmass 
remains dry below 800mb early this evening...so only a band of 
30-40% probability of precipitation will be forecast for extreme northern portions...bordered by a 
band of 20% probability of precipitation...with sub 15% probability of precipitation over southeast portions. Partial 
thicknesses support rain throughout the evening...but given the dry 
air initially...the onset of precipitation could be a brief mix of 
-ra/ip...though not substantial enough (surface temperatures upper 
30s/low 40s) to include in the grids. Moisture steadily increases 
through the night...with likely probability of precipitation northwest after 03z...steadily 
increasing to 80-90% for all areas after 09z. The surface airmass is 
expected to modify through the night as southerly flow develops 
across the region due to the low tracking north of the area. Lows in the 
upper 30s/low 40s should occur in the evening...with temperatures 
rising and ranging from the upper 40s northwest...to low/middle 50s southeast by 12z 
Monday. 


Likely to categorical probability of precipitation will be maintained for the entire area 
12-15z Monday...and in far southeast location this should be the period of 
most significant rainfall. A quick drying trend commences from 
15-18z over most of the area...but likely to categorical probability of precipitation will 
be maintained for the eastern third of the area through 18z. Total quantitative precipitation forecast 
should average around 0.5 in...with up to 0.75 in across the Maryland Eastern 
Shore. Otherwise...probability of precipitation along the coast quickly drop off to 20-30% 
during the afternoon. The day will begin cloudy across the area with 
interior Virginia/NC becoming partly sunny by afternoon. The day will 
begin warm...and cold air advection will likely wait until after sunset...so highs 
should range from the upper 40s/around 50 f far northwest...to 55-60 f 
across most of the area. A gusty northwest wind will develop as 
clearing/drying arrives Monday afternoon...with speeds averaging 
around 20 miles per hour...with gusts to 30-35 miles per hour. 


&& 


Short term /Monday night through Wednesday/... 
deep layer northwest flow prevails Monday night...and backs to westerly 
Tuesday. This will allow surface high pressure (and associated caa) 
to build into the region Monday night...with the high locating along 
the coast by Tuesday afternoon. Lows Monday night should fall into 
the middle teens northwest...to low 20s southeast under a mostly clear sky. Highs 
Tuesday will be below normal and range from the low/middle 30s northwest...to 
low 40s SW. 


A split flow pattern will prevail Tuesday night and Wednesday...with 
the middle-Atlantic region largely situated between quasi-zonal northern 
stream flow and a moist southern stream along the Gulf Coast. This will 
result in dry conditions...with sky cover averaging partly cloudy 
across northern portions and mostly clear/sunny across southern portions. 
Surface high pressure moves offshore Tuesday night and 
Wednesday...which will allow temperatures to moderate. Lows Tuesday 
night should average 25-30...followed by highs Wednesday in the 
upper 40s/around 50 from the northwest Piedmont to the Maryland Eastern Shore...and 
the low/middle 50s across central/southeast Virginia and NE NC. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
GFS/European model (ecmwf) in very good agreement with regard to overall pattern and 
tangible weather during the days 4-7 period. Overall...weather 
should be below normal...with no big precipitation events in the extended 
period. European model (ecmwf) has trended toward GFS with regard to frontal wave and 
associated cold frontal passage on Thursday. Expect some light 
precipitation...either rain and/or snow to be produced in association with 
the frontal passage. Behind the front...another brief cold surge 
builds in for Thursday night through Saturday...with high pressure 
in control. 


Another polar/Arctic front is forecast to move southward into the region 
Saturday night/Sunday...with a wave forecast to develop Sunday 
night. European model (ecmwf)/GFS do diverge at this point with regard to where the 
wave will develop...and therefore what type of precipitation might 
impact the County Warning Area during that time. GFS is further west and 
warmer...with European model (ecmwf)...as it has for the last 1-2 months...suggesting 
a winter weather event. Have gone in between the 2 models...with chance 
of rain and/or snow...and capped probability of precipitation at 40 percent. 


&& 


Aviation /21z Sunday through Friday/... 
high pressure has shifted off the coast with light south to 
southeast winds across the region this afternoon. High clouds 
bkn080-100 were moving in from the SW ahead of the approaching 
storm system. Conditions will remain VFR with just broken-overcast high 
clouds for the remainder of the afternoon and evening. 


Overcast skies gradually lower later to 3-5 kft by midnight as the 
approaching surface low lifts into the Ohio Valley. The trailing cold 
front reaches the local area late tonight into early Monday morning. 
Precipitation will begin to spread over the Piedmont overnight ahead of 
the front...reaching kric and ksby by 06z and orf and ecg by 08z. 
Sky cover also lowers to MVFR either side of midnight ahead of the 
front. For now best chances for IFR conditions from 08z-15z Monday 
are at kric and ksby. Orf...phf and ecg could see a brief period 
of IFR either side of daybreak...but confidence is this is not 
high. 


Cold front sweeps through the local area Monday morning...pushing offshore 
Monday afternoon. Rain accompanying the front should push offshore by 
early afternoon. Conditions improve Post frontal with clearing 
skies late Monday-Monday evening. High pressure returns Tuesday- Wednesday. The 
next cold front crosses the region Wednesday night-Thursday morning. 


&& 


Marine... 
have made only minor adjustments to previous forecast in the short 
term...which will be dominated by surface low and associated cold front 
moving through the region tonight/Monday. Will upgrade to glw in 
areas where a gale watch is currently in effect. However...there 
will be a prolonged period of Small Craft Advisory criteria wind before strongest 
cold advection surge moves in late Monday afternoon/Monday evening. 
Winds drop off quickly on Tuesday as high pressure builds into the 
region. 


High moves offshore Tuesday night...with next front forecast to 
cross the region Thursday and Thursday evening. GFS/European model (ecmwf) have some 
into better agreement with the evolution of this front across the 
area...and have followed them closely. Winds expected to be weaker 
ahead of this front...remaining below Small Craft Advisory criteria. Behind the 
front...another good cold surge should send winds well into Small Craft Advisory 
criteria Thursday into Thursday night. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory from midnight tonight to 6 PM EST Monday 
for anz630>638. 
Gale Warning from 6 PM Monday to 6 am EST Tuesday for
