NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
715 am EDT Thursday Jul 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will approach from the west this morning...then 
crosses the region and moves offshore late this afternoon through 
Friday morning. High pressure builds back over the local area 
later Friday morning through Saturday. A weak cold front may 
affect portions of the area Sunday and Monday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
upper ridging retrogrades a bit today...as a trough moves across the 
Great Lakes and pushes a cold front into the middle-Atlantic region later 
this afternoon/early this eveng. Due to the late arrival of the 
front...chance probability of precipitation (30-50%) for showers/thunderstorms will remain across north-northwest 
areas during the afternoon into early eveng...lowering to 14-20% across 
far southeast Virginia/coastal NE NC. A few thunderstorms could contain strong gusty winds 
and heavy downpours. Partly sunny with hi temperatures in the lower 
90s...except middle to upper 80s at the immediate CST. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Saturday/... 
tonight and Friday... 
the cold front moves across the forecast area this eveng/tonight and moves offshr 
Friday morng. Will maintain chance probability of precipitation (30-50%) most areas with the 
passage of the front through early Friday morng. Precipitation quickly pushes 
S/east by late Friday morng...so that most places will be dry on 
Friday. Did maintain 20-30% probability of precipitation across extreme southeast areas into midday Friday. 
Otherwise...hi pressure and drier air builds into and over the region 
during Friday. Low temperatures tonight in the upper 60s northwest to the middle 70s southeast. 
Hi temperatures on Friday in the upper 80s to lower 90s. 


Friday night and Saturday... 
hi pressure will remain over the area for Friday night and Sat. Dry weather with 
a mostly clear/mostly sunny sky. Humidity levels start to increase 
again on Sat...due to surface winds from the south-southwest. Lows Friday night in the 
60s to lower 70s. Highs on Sat in the upper 80s to lower 90s. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
pattern begins with a middle/upper level ridge centered over the SW 
Continental U.S. And an upper level low persisting across Hudson Bay Canada. 
GFS/European model (ecmwf) into better decent agreement that an upper trough axis 
will extend south into the Great Lakes Sat night...then flatten 
out sun with a weak shortwave pushing across the middle Atlantic by Monday. 


Front stalls and dissipates over far southern Virginia/NC Sat night. Best 
chance for precipitation looks to be across the far south/mainly NE NC through 
the weekend but even here will only go with a 20-30% probability of precipitation/primarily 
for the afternoon/evening timeframe on sun/tapered to 20% far southern Virginia 
and dry elsewhere). Will maintain 30-40% probability of precipitation NE NC for Monday due 
to the shortwave moving through but not a lot of confidence as 
this is 5 days out...probability of precipitation around 20% north. Keeping probability of precipitation around 
20% all areas Tuesday. Typical summertime temperatures can be expected 
with highs mainly ranging from the middle 80s/around 90 f along the 
coast to the lower 90s inland. Lows generally ranging from the 
middle 60s northwest to the lower 70s southeast through the period. 


&& 


Aviation /11z Thursday through Monday/... 
as of 11z...a mostly clear sky this morning across area taf 
terminals with weak high pressure over the area. South-southeast winds are 
forecast through middle morning at 10 knots or less. 


A cold front approaches from the west later today. Expect 
increasing middle and high level clouds later this morning into early 
afternoon north/west of kric...and by middle afternoon across coastal terminals. 
There is a chance for thunderstorms late this afternoon and this evening. 
Best chances are across northwest sections, so have gone with vicinity 
thunder at ric, vicinity rain showers at sby. Chances a bit lower, and 
later in the day over southeast terminals (phf/orf/ecg), so have kept out 
for now. Will re- evaluate with 12z tafs. Winds will be from the 
S/SW at around 10 knots with a few higher gusts to around 15 to 18 
knots possible. 


Outlook...a chance for thunderstorms continues tonight into early Friday, 
and will end from northwest to southeast Friday morning. Mainly 
dry weather is expected through the weekend with a chance for thunderstorms 
mainly south on Monday. 


&& 


Marine... 
latest observation reflect southerly flow across the waters this morning. 
Have noted winds to ~15 knots across Northern Bay zones...as winds have 
nudged upward early today in association with sharpening Lee trough 
west of the waters. A weak cold front over the Ohio Valley this 
morning will push toward the local area through tonight...crossing 
the area late tonight and Friday morning before becoming stalled 
along the Carolina coast Friday afternoon. Winds turn around from the 
west-SW today to the north-northwest by late tonight. Not anticipating a strong 
cool surge on Friday...as winds shift to the north-northeast by midday 
Friday...becoming east-southeast by late in the day/Friday evening. Winds then turn 
back to the south-southwest for Friday night and Sat...as the front weakens just to 
our south-southeast along the Carolina coast. Winds remain south-southwest Sunday through 
early next week, as surface high pressure becomes anchored over the 
western Atlantic, as it becomes dominant weather feature. Waves 1-2 
feet/seas 2-4 feet. Waves generally 1-2 feet in the Bay...building to 
2-3 feet this eveng. Seas 2-3 feet early...building to 3-4 feet late, 
highest outer waters. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
southerly channeling has resulted in some nuisance-type tidal anomalies 
on the order of a half to three quarters of a foot above normal at 
Bishops Head. Water levels look to approach, but just fall short 
of minor flood thresholds with astronomically higher tide cycle 
late tonight...just before cold frontal passage. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...none.
