NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1005 PM EST Monday Mar 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds into the Middle Atlantic States tonight through 
Tuesday morning. A warm front lifts northeast across the region 
Tuesday night...followed by a cold front slowly crossing the area 
Wednesday afternoon through Wednesday night. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Tuesday morning/... 
current analysis reveals ~1033 mb surface high pressure centered over 
the eastern Great Lakes...ridging south into the middle Atlantic region. Flow 
aloft is from the west-northwest...well out ahead of broad troughing over the western 
Continental U.S.. skies are mainly clear across north/NE sections of the County Warning Area...while 
middle/high level cloudiness is streaming through the remainder of 
the County Warning Area. Seeing some lower clouds/broken ceilings in NC as well. For the 
overnight period...as upper ridge over the middle MS valley advances 
east into the Ohio Valley...will continue to see increasing clouds 
into the local area. Have adjusted min temperatures up a few degrees across 
the south due to more cloud cover...while generally keeping mins untouched 
farther north/NE where skies stay mostly clear through most of the 
night. Expect mins to range from the upper 20s/lower 30s over NE NC/far 
southern Virginia...to the lower 20s from the Northern Neck to the Maryland Eastern 
Shore. Latest 00z nam12 simulated reflectivity shows some light 
returns entering SW zones by 12z...but this would just be virga 
over the dry airmass in place so no chance for precipitation through 12z. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Tuesday morning through Thursday/... 
center of surface hi pressure slowly exits to the east on Tuesday...but low level cad 
remains over the forecast area. Cloudiness will continue to increases Tuesday morning limiting temperature 
rise. Some light precipitation may breakout...especially far west-northwest areas...during the 
midday hours...then better coverage of precipitation across forecast area expected by middle/lt 
afternoon. Model soundings continue to hint at ptntl for brief period of freezing rain over 
far north-northwest areas as temperatures struggle to reach 32f through early afternoon. 
Confidence remains low at this time...and will hold off on any Winter Weather 
Advisory. Otherwise...p-type to be rain over the region Tuesday aftn/eve. Hi 
temperatures to be reached lt in the day...ranging from the M/u30s northwest-central 
locations to l40s southeast. 


Warm front to lift NE through the forecast area Tuesday night. Best moisture and 
uvm across central/northern portions of forecast area...thus the highest probability of precipitation...W/ 
with chance probability of precipitation limited to southern Virginia/NE NC. Bulk of the rain lifts to northern 
portion by lt at night. Low temperatures likely around 00z/04 with rising temperatures 
through the night. Temperatures by 12z/04 Wednesday rise into the u40s- m50s. 


Forecast area becomes "warm sectored" Wednesday due to surge of a strong south-southwest flow. 
There remain timing issues west/ the approaching cold front from the north-northwest...as 
12z/02 NAM about 12hrs slower than the 12z/02 GFS. Again...the 
12z/02 European model (ecmwf) seems like a good compromise. Will have highest probability of precipitation 
(40-60%) by afternoon across northern tier of forecast area...W/ slight chance to chance (20-40%) 
to the S. For now...leaving out any mention of T across southern Virginia/NE 
NC...since it aprs most of moisture confined to west/ and behind the 
fnt. Hi temperatures from the u50s/l60s north to l70s in far southeast Virginia/NE NC. 


Just one year ago...March 2nd-3rd...went from 60s to l70s (the 2nd) 
to a few inches of snow (on the 3rd). This may occur again this weak 
(wed-thu). 


Forecast challenges continue Wednesday night through Thursday as cold front settles south-southeast 
through the forecast area...and another area of Arctic surface hi pressure builds toward 
the MS/Ohio valleys. Will lean toward the faster arrival of colder surface 
air from the north-northwest (gfs/ecmwf) by lt Wednesday night and continuing on Thursday. The 
models each hint at weak surface low pressure tracking through NC as short wave aloft 
(in fast southwesterly flo) is sheared as it moves eastward into the region. All 
this leads to a transition (wrt p-type) lt Wed/Thu. Rain...becomes 
mixed west/ ice pellets-changing to snow/ice pellets then ending as snow from north-northwest to southeast across 
the forecast area (lastly across NE NC by middle or lt afternoon thu). Timing those 
transitions at this point very difficult...though currently expect 
a least light snow accums for areas north of the NC/Virginia border before the 
day ends Thursday (t-2 inches S...1-4 inches north (highest ptnttly from 
ric-sby)). Along west/ the transition to wintry precipitation...gusty north-northeast winds 
will be pushing colder air into the region. Low temperatures Wednesday night from around 
30f north to the l40s far S. Temperatures Thursday steady or falling. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
cold to begin the extended in wake of Thursday cold front...but 
moderating temperatures through the weekend will bring temperatures back to near 
normal early next week. 


Shortwave pushes offshore Thursday night with the northern portion of the 
front pushing well offshore. Southern portion pushes southward over the Gulf 
states/northern Gulf...stalling in westerly flow aloft. Ended chance probability of precipitation near 
the coast at midnight...with drying/clearing conditions thereafter. 
1030+mb Arctic high pressure builds over the region Friday...resulting 
in another cold day with highs around 20 degrees below normal. 850 mb 
temperatures bottom out around -12c (-2 Standard dev)...with thicknesses 
yielding temperatures in the low-middle 30s. Surface high pushes offshore Friday 
night with light return flow helping moderate low level thicknesses. 
Temperatures forecast in the middle-upper teens Friday night under mostly clear 
skies. Thereafter...medium range guidance begins to diverge thanks 
to developing split flow over the western Continental U.S.. the upper pattern will 
again be characterized by cyclonic flow (troughing) over the eastern 
Continental U.S. And ridging (return to a +pna) over the western Continental U.S.. models 
struggling with a number of Canadian impulses set to impact the NE 
states...but also southern stream energy over the Baja California this weekend. 
European model (ecmwf) rather robust with this energy...translating across northern Mexico 
and the Southern Plains Sat night-sun...possibly phasing with northern stream 
energy over the Midwest. This solution would lift the stalled 
frontal boundary over the Gulf northward late in the weekend...bringing 
rain to the region early next week. The GFS shears the 
energy...keeping it well south of the region...keeping the local 
area dry. Have trended forecast toward a wpc/ensemble approach which 
keeps the southern stream wave flat and the local area dry through the 
weekend..with moderating temperatures. Highs Sat forecast in the upper 
40s-low 50s inland and low-middle 40s near the coast. Highs sun in the 
middle 50s inland and middle-upper 40s near the coast. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
as of 00z...scattered high clouds were over the taf sites with winds under 
10 knots. High pressure over the Ohio Valley will build into the Middle 
Atlantic States overnight and quickly move off the coast Tuesday 
morning. A warm front advances into the region by Tuesday night. 


Middle and high level clouds build over the taf sites by Tuesday 
morning. Cloud bases lower with precipitation developing by late Tuesday. 
Have precipitation develop at ric at 19z and orf/phf by 22z...matching close 
to lavmos. Held ecg off until beyond the taf period. Some IFR visibilities 
will be possible toward evening and this is included in the ric taf. 


Outlook...rain increases across the area with IFR conds developing 
Tuesday night. Conditions improve Wednesday morning. A cold front 
moves through the area late Wednesday. Rain develops behind the 
front Wednesday evening turning to mixed precipitation and later snow on 
Thursday. Aviation conditions will be impacted by this precipitation. High 
pressure settles over the area Friday and Saturday. 


&& 


Marine... 
weak/secondary cold front has dropped south of the water this 
afternoon. Winds have become northerly...but weak low-level cold air advection has 
resulted in speeds generally at or below 15 knots in the Bay/river/sound and 
at or below 20 knots coastal waters. This as winds a few thousand feet aloft 
range from 30-35kt. Seas generally 2-3 feet and waves 1-2 feet. Have 
dropped Small Craft Advisory headlines all water expect for the coastal waters south 
of the Virginia/NC border as better fetch will result in 4-5 feet seas 
tonight. Headlines run through late tonight. ~1030+mb surface high pressure 
builds over the water tonight...sliding offshore Tuesday. Flow becomes 
southeasterly behind the departing high at or below 15 knots. Warm front prognosticated to lift 
over the water late Tuesday night as a cold front slowly approaches 
from the west. High pressure centers off the southeast coast. Southwesterly 
flow increases late Tuesday night...but so does warm air advection over very cold 
water. Marginal Small Craft Advisory conditions are possible...but maybe only a few 
gusts to 20 knots late Tuesday night-early Wednesday morning in the Bay. Seas 
build to around 5 feet 20 nm out late Tuesday through Wednesday...before 
subsiding Wednesday night at or below 4 feet. Front is slow to cross the water 
Wednesday-Wednesday night. Cold air advection surges into the region late Wednesday 
night...continuing through Thursday night. Small Craft Advisory conditions are expected 
with a northerly wind. Seas build to 4-7 feet (highest in the southern waters) 
Thursday...subsiding Friday morning. High pressure returns Friday into early 
next weekend.
