NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
240 PM EDT Wednesday Sep 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
a weak trough of low pressure will persist over the middle Atlantic 
through Thursday with weak high pressure centered over the Ohio 
Valley. Stronger high pressure then slowly drops down from the 
northeast states Friday through the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
isolated/scattered rain showers/thunderstorms will continue through this evening as weakening 
trough aloft tracks across the forecast area. Expecting trend down in coverage after 
01-04z/03. Otherwise...vrb clouds through tonight. Locally heavy rain possible in 
any storms. Low temperatures from the u60s-l70s. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Saturday/... 
weak surface trough lingers over the forecast area...especially eastern half Thursday/Thursday night. After 
that...hi pressure aloft amplifies through the Great Lakes and into 
the NE Continental U.S. Friday into Sat. Weak boundary will then be settling S 
through the mdatlc states Friday afternoon into Sat morning as surface hi pressure 
builds S through new eng. 


Another summery day Thursday west/ vrb clouds/partly sunny conds. Possibly 
enough convergence in vicinity of sea breezes and surface trough for inclusion 
of at least slight chance probability of precipitation...mainly afternoon/evening hours. Hi temperatures from the 
u80s-l90s. 


Partly-mostly cloudy conds expected Thursday night and Friday as surface winds turn 
NE resulting in the start of a cooldown. Once again...low confidence 
in coverage of precipitation...though will favor highest probability of precipitation inland from the 
CST (by Friday aftn). Period of stratus possible Friday night into Sat (mrng) as 
winds pick up from the NE...which Ushers in (eventually Sat aftn) 
drier air (and gradually clearing - lastly across southern Virginia/NE nc) from 
the NE Continental U.S.. hanging onto 20-30% probability of precipitation Friday night into Sat...though 
trend in any precipitation expected to be lowering from NE to SW. Also...will likely 
be a breezy start to the Holiday weekend...especially eastern portion...W/ ptntl 
gusts to 25-30 miles per hour. 


Low temperatures Thursday night from the u60s-70s. Hi temperatures Friday in the l/m80s NE to 
the u80s-around 90f south-southwest. Hi temperatures Sat from the M/u70s at the CST to 
l80s inland. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
going with a blend of the 12z GFS/12z European model (ecmwf) for the extended period. 
Initially...20-30% pop for a shower and maybe a thunderstorm Friday night through 
Sat afternoon...as weak backdoor front drops through the area...as hi pressure 
builds from eastern Canada southward to alng the New England CST. Then...will 
have dry weather from Sat night through Tuesday...as the center of hi pressure builds down 
over the middle Atlantic region and just offshr. Highs will be 80 to 85 Sat 
and sun...generally in the middle 80s Monday...and in the middle to upper 80s 
Tuesday. Lows will be in the middle 60s to lower 70s Sat morng...in the 60s 
sun and Monday morngs...and in the middle 60s to near 70 Tuesday morng. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Wednesday through Monday/... 
VFR conditions early this afternoon at all terminals. Thunderstorms in the 
vicinity of kric should move southeastward away from the terminal by 
1830z. However...additional showers and thunderstorms are possible in the 
22z to 01z time frame...per hi-res models. Have maintained a dry 
forecast for the remainder of the 18z tafs...as there is 
considerable undercertainty regarding extent of late 
afternoon/evening shwrs/tstms. Have inserted some light fog/haze 
into kric/kecg/ksby tafs as airmass remains rather stagnant...but 
dew points continue to increase. This should allow for fog to 
become a bit more widespread than has been the case recently. Kecg 
had LIFR conditions this morning...and threat for this occurring 
Thursday morning exists. 


Outlook...outside of scattered mainly afternoon and evening 
showers/thunderstorms Thursday and Friday...dry weather and VFR conditions 
are expected through Sunday. Some stratus and fog at some of the 
taf sites within a few hours of sunrise Friday morning...with the 
potential for some ocean stratus late Friday/Saturday at the 
coastal terminals. 


&& 


Marine... 
no headlines in short term. Winds remain at or below 10 kts along with seas 
at or below 2 feet through Thursday night as high prs dominates. Expect onshore sea 
breezes both this afternoon and Thursday afternoon with winds becoming more west-southwest at 
night. 


Data suggests high prs to the north will be strong enough to push a bkdr 
cdfrnt S across the waters Friday. The high will be slow to move off the 
New England coast this weekend. This scenario results in a extended prd 
of NE flow. Data even suggests solid Small Craft Advisory cndtns dvlpng north-S Friday night 
and continuing Sat as winds increases to between 15-25 kts along with building seas 
to between 4-6 feet. 


In addition...the onshore flow will likely result in nearshore waves 
of 3-4 feet which will increasing the rip current threat for the upcoming 
Holiday weekend. Despite being out 3 days...tidal guidance suggests tides 
building to between 1/2 to 1 foot above normal by Sat...but remaining below 
minor flooding thresholds.
