NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
534 PM EDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will intensify while slowly tracking northeast off 
the middle Atlantic coast through Friday. Unsettled conditions will 
prevail into tonight...followed by drier conditions and a warming 
trend Thursday and Friday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Thursday morning/... 
latest msas analysis shows 1005 mb surface low about 100 miles east of the 
Maryland Eastern Shore...with a stacked upper low following suit and 
tracking slow NE just offshore. Best instability remains offshore this 
afternoon in vicinity of the low pressure area...where some thunderstorm 
activity is still ongoing. Elsewhere...wrap around moisture 
continues to bring light rain/drizzle southward along the I-95 
corridor...though this activity has trended weaker in the past few 
hours. Still seeing some breaks in the clouds across our SW 
zones...where temperatures were able to warm into the middle 60s. Low 
pressure will continue to deepen and shift NE through tonight... 
locating off the New Jersey coast by 12z Thursday. Will keep high probability of precipitation across 
our eastern zones into this evening as the wrap around precipitation 
continues to drop south. Precipitation should continue to trend lighter 
along the I-95 corridor...with light rain becoming just 
drizzle/sprinkles before ending after sunset. By late evening and 
overnight...remaining chance probability of precipitation will be limited to far eastern Virginia 
and especially the Eastern Shore. Clouds will continue to decrease 
across the SW...with sky conditions becoming partly to mostly 
clear overnight. Mostly cloudy elsewhere. Remaining breezy to 
windy along the coast...especially NE sections. Lows in the low 40s 
west to around 50 at the coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Thursday morning through Saturday/... 
low pressure tracks quickly NE off the New England coast Thursday 
and Friday. Meanwhile...high pressure will gradually build in from 
the Ohio Valley. Pressure gradient remains tight between these two 
features Thursday...allowing breezy/windy conditions to continue. 
Highest winds will be along the coast where gusts of 30-35 miles per hour 
will occur...15-25 miles per hour elsewhere. A 20% pop will be maintained for 
the Eastern Shore...dry elsewhere. Still enough residual low level 
moisture and a cold pool aloft for skies to average out mostly cloudy 
NE to partly to mostly sunny SW. Highs in the upper 50s/around 60 
on the Maryland Eastern Shore...to the upper 60s for interior NE NC and 
south central Virginia. Mostly clear SW to partly cloudy NE Thursday night 
with lows in the 40s to lower 50s. Low pressure moves farther NE 
and away from the local area on Friday allowing for mainly sunny 
conds...diminishing winds...and milder temperatures. Highs Friday in the 
middle 60s NE to around 70 f SW. High pressure remains in control 
Saturday for dry and pleasant conditions. Highs in the upper 60s to 
low 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
a weak trough clips the northern middle-Atlantic Saturday night and quickly 
moves off the coast Sunday. A high amplitude middle/upper level ridge 
builds over the eastern US Monday and Tuesday...with the axis shifting 
offshore by Wednesday. Given this...dry conditions will prevail 
through Wednesday. High temperatures should average in the upper 60s 
to around 70 Sunday...and trend upward into the low/middle 70s by 
Monday through Wednesday. Lows through the period should average 
from the low/middle 40s northwest...to the low/middle 50s for southeast coastal 
locations. A cold front approaches from the northwest later in the period. 
22/12z GFS/European model (ecmwf) each have trended somewhat wetter as a wave of low 
pressure develops along the front. However...moisture appears to be 
rather limited. 


&& 


Aviation /22z Wednesday through Monday/... 
surface low pressure will continue to deepen offshore and slowly 
shift to the NE through the 18z taf period. Mostly MVFR ceilings 
will prevail as moisture pulled from the south is wrapped around the 
storm and into the mid-Atlantic. Due to the added moisture and upper 
level support...scattered pockets of rain/showers will last through 
the evening...ending the latest over the Eastern Shore. With that 
being said...there is evidence of drier air being pulled into the 
system over south central Virginia with ceilings ~5k feet. Expect this 
drier air to make its way east as the system moves farther offshore. 
Winds will remain elevated overnight(~15-20kt) and Thursday 
aftn(~20-25kt) as the pressure gradient remains strong between the 
departing low and a surface high approaching from the west. 


VFR conditions are expected tonight/Thursday morning through the weekend 
as high pressure makes its way over the Ohio River valley and into the 
Tennessee River valley. 


&& 


Marine... 
low pressure continues to intensify off the middle Atlantic coast this 
afternoon. A north-northwest wind should continue to increase over the next few 
hours and average 25-30kt...with gusts to around 40kt through the 
evening (20-25kt...with gusts to around 30kt over the rivers). Seas 
should build to 6-9ft north through S out near 20nm...with 4-6ft seas 
nearshore...and 3-5ft waves in the Bay. The low begins to slowly 
lift NE late tonight and reaches a position off of Cape Cod Thursday 
afternoon/Friday evening. Wind speeds gradually diminish through 
this time...but should remain within Small Craft Advisory criteria. The gradient 
finally slackens enough for Small Craft Advisory conditions to subside Friday night. 
Another boundary crosses the region Saturday night bringing the 
potential for another period of Small Craft Advisory conditions. High pressure 
eventually builds over the area Monday through Wednesday. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
tidal departures in vicinity of Ocean City Inlet will average 
around 1.5ft above normal during high tide this evening and 
Thursday morning. The current forecast has Ocean City Inlet 
falling just below minor thresholds this evening and exceeding 
minor during high tide Thursday morning as the astronomical tide 
will be a few tenths higher. With a north-northwest wind...the main areas of 
concern will be along the shorelines of Assawoman and chincoteauge 
bays...and the adjacent ocean inlets. 


&&
