NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
335 PM EDT Tuesday may 26 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure remains anchored off the middle Atlantic coast into 
the weekend. A trough of low pressure remains nearly stationary 
east of the mountains through Friday. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 
high res models continue to indicate scattered showers/tstrms develop ivof cho 
over the next few hours...drift into Louisa/Fluvanna counties between 21-00z 
then dspt by 10 PM. Kept a 20-30 pop for this activity this evening. 
Otw...offshore ridge dominates but expect a fair amount of SC/St to 
develop given the increases in ll moisture. Thus went pt cloudy with this 
forecast package though it may turn out mostly cloudy in some areas 
late tonite. Warm and humid with lows 65-70. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Friday/... 
offshore Bermuda ridge continues the Summer heat/humidity through 
the period. Models continue to show a persistant trough which when 
combined with the apprchg moisture from the west-southwest will likely be the 
trigger for scattered convection. Timing rather problematic given low 
confidence of short wave energy ejecting NE from dsptg mcs's....but the 
emphasis of this forecast will be for mainly diurnally driven 
convection each day. Highest probability of precipitation (40-50%) will be across the northwestern 
third of forecast area...20-30% rest of forecast area expect the NE corner of NC where little 
if any support seen for precipitation. Threat will be for lclly heavy downpours 
given the precipitable waters at or above 1.5 inches...deep temperatures in the 60s and relatively 
weak steering currents. Highs each day in the l-m80s...xcpt 70s at 
the beaches. Lows 65-70. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
long term period starts off Sat with an upper-level ridge breaking 
down over the eastern Seaboard as a cold front drops into the medium Atlantic 
region. There is still some differences amongst models in regards 
to when the front makes it into the local area which would affect 
timing of precipitation...with the 12z GFS faster than the 12z ecwmf. For 
now with this still several days out will forecast 20-30% probability of precipitation Sat 
increasing to 30-50% sun with the front in the vicinity. Expect 
above normal temperatures both days with highs avgg in the middle to upper 
80s. Chance of rain continues into Erly next week with temperatures not 
quite as warm as the weekend...highs only in the upper 70s to lower 
80s on average. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
high pressure off the middle Atlantic coast will continue to bring S/SW 
winds during the 18z taf period...occasionally gusting to around 15 
to 20 knots. An isolated shower or thunderstorm will be possible late this 
afternoon and tonight well inland...but is unlikely to affect any of the 
terminals. Any convection Wednesday is expected to hold off until 
after 18z. 


Some MVFR developed this morning over southeast North Carolina and scattered to 
broken stratocu and cumulus ceilings above 3k feet have been reported at the 
taf sites. MOS output and NAM bufr soundings indicate sub VFR conds 
may occur Wednesday morning but guidance is rather inconsistent. 
Tafs are based primarily on trends of the NAM bufr soundings 
which emphasize MVFR ceilings. With dew points well into the 
60s...would expect some periods of MVFR visibilities as well...mainly 
between 10 and 15z. 


Outlook...Bermuda high pressure will continue to dominate...but late 
afternoon/evening thunderstorms are expected late Wednesday and again Thursday 
with lesser chances Friday and Saturday. Chances increase again 
Sunday. Outside of thunderstorms... VFR conditions should prevail...some 
MVFR and patchy IFR ceilings/visibilities will be likely for a few hours around 
sunrise. 


&& 


Marine... 
Small Craft Advisory issued this morng for the Bay continues through this eveng. With a 
similar pattern as yesterday which had frequent gusts to 20 knots 
expect S winds to pick up to 15-20 knots later this afternoon and eveng. Sub- 
Small Craft Advisory conds over the other waters with 15-20 knots winds over coastal waters and 
10-15 knots over the rivers and sound. S flow continues into Wednesday with 
strong surface hi pressure offshore. Expect similar winds as today with waves 
over the Bay at 2-3 feet and seas over coastal waters at 2-4 feet. Pressure 
gradient weakens a bit on Thursday...and winds should be a few knots less 
overall. Winds look to remain southerly avgg 10-15 knots for the most part 
into the upcoming weekend. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 1 am EDT Wednesday for anz630>632- 
634.
