NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
400 am EST Sat Nov 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure remains centered over the region this morning...then 
slides off the coast this afternoon through tonight. A warm front 
will lift north and across the region late Sunday through Sunday 
night. A cold front will cross the area late Monday into Monday 
night. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
surface hi pressure (~1034mb) centered over the forecast area at this time...and will remain so 
through the morning hours. A (very) cold start under sky clear and near calm 
winds west/ most low temperatures from the upper teens to the m20s. The hi is slo 
to weaken/drift off the CST later today. Light/vrb winds become south-southwest 
resulting in moderation. Sky remains mainly sky clear through this afternoon. Hi 
temperatures from the u40s north to l50s far southeast. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Monday/... 
clouds will gradually increase and thicken from the SW late tonight 
through midday sun...as Gulf CST moisture and an associated warm 
front lifts NE through the southeast Continental U.S.. clear/mostly clear becoming 
partly cloudy Sat night with lows ranging through the 30s. 


The warm front with strong vertical motion and associated 
substantial moisture will lift NE and across the mdatlc region sun 
Sun night. Have probability of precipitation for rain increasing to 30-50% SW 1/2 of forecast area 
during Sun afternoon...then to 80-90% everywhere between 00z-06z 
Monday...and from about 70% NE to 40% SW between 06z-12z Monday. Hi temperatures 
sun ranging from the l/m50s northwest to the l60s southeast. Lows Sun night ranging 
through the 50s...W/ readings likely to rise after mdngt. Quantitative precipitation forecast avgg 1/2 
to 1 inch. 


The warm front will be well north-northeast of the region at 12z Monday...with a 
cold front pushing toward/into our extreme western cnties by 00z Tuesday. After lower 
clouds and possible fog Monday morning...SW winds in advance of the cold front 
become gusty...and will help temperatures climb into the 70s under a 
partly sunny sky. For now...probability of precipitation at or below 14% on Monday. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
cold front moves off the middle atlntc coast by 12z Tuesday. Boundary then 
stalls over the Gulf Stream Tuesday & Wednesday in response to a series of 
S/w's prognosticated to develop then move NE along it. Meanwhile...high prs 
(of Pacific origin) over the nations middle section builds s&e through 
the middle week prd. Upper level low and trailing cdfrnt prognosticated to dive 
southeast from the Great Lakes Thursday with high prs building into the Ara Friday. 


Grids will indicate slght chance showers with frontal passage Monday night. Cooler 
as cold air advection set in behind the front. Lows M-u40s northwestern half 50-55 southeastern 
half. Tuesday through Wednesday forecast depends on how far n&w moisture gets from the 
dvlpng low off the southeastern coast. GFS has a track a bit further east 
keeping the precipitation confined to southeastern coastal areas by late Tuesday...and gnrly 
east of i95 Wednesday. European model (ecmwf) slower with a dry Tuesday...precipitation moving across southeastern 
coastal areas Tuesday night then spreading across the entire forecast area Wednesday before 
pulling out to seas Wednesday night. 


Trended towards the European model (ecmwf) with the coastal low Tuesday & Wednesday...but thnk 
it is overdone with respect to the deepening of the low off the middle atlntc coast 
Turkey day. Will indicate 20-30 pop across southeastern coastal areas Tuesday. Dry 
elsewhere. Highs m50s-l60s. A general rain ovrsprds the forecast area southeast-northwest 
Tuesday night and Wednesday...then ends Wednesday evening as the low pulls further 
offshore. Precipitation all liquid with this event. Lows Tuesday night m30s-m40s. 
Highs Wednesday m40s-l50s. Precipitation ends Wednesday evening before the cold air arrives. 
Lows after the rain ends fall into the u20s-l30s west of the 
Bay...M-u30s southeastern coastal areas. 


Clipper type short wave dives southeast Thursday. Enough moisture seen with this ftr for at 
least slght chance diurnal showers (psbly mixed with ip???) Thanksgiving 
day. Highs 45-50. Drying out Thursday night and Friday. Lows u20s-m30s 
xcpt 35-40 southeastern coastal areas. Highs Friday M-u40s. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
VFR conditions at all terminals with mostly clear sky and light 
wind. Low dewpoints mean no fog is expected. Winds are mostly light 
out of the North-East and will gradually shift to SW by this afternoon. High 
pressure settles over the middle Atlantic region today...moving well 
offshore on Sunday. 


A complex weather system is expected to bring periods of rain and 
MVFR/IFR conds late sun into Monday morning. 


&& 


Marine... 
the Small Craft Advisory over southern coastal waters has expired as seas dropped below 5 feet. For 
the remainder of the morng...expect 2-3 feet seas over coastal waters with 
light winds as strong surface hi pressure centers over the waters. The hi 
slides farther offshore this afternoon...with winds becoming southerly at 10-15 knots. 
Next low pressure systm pushes NE towards the Ohio Valley/Great Lakes 
sun/Sun night...with S/southeast flow ramping up over the local waters as the 
pressure gradient increases. Small Craft Advisory conditions are likely Sun night into Monday 
in response to this...and may continue until Monday night when the 
associated cold front crosses the area. Gusts may approach gale force 
over the ocean as well. With this being 4th period will hold off on 
any headlines for now. Waves over the Bay will reach 3-4 feet with seas 
over coastal waters up to 6-8 feet.
