NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
315 am EDT sun Apr 26 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure tracks east across North Carolina this morning...then 
moves off the coast this afternoon. High pressure slowly rebuilds 
over the area from the west Monday into Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
initial area of rain has moved off the CST...however a second area is 
moving out of the mountains through SW Virginia. Weak surface low pressure (alg west/ 
accompanying short wave aloft) will be tracking east across NC this 
morning...pushing an area of rain through mainly central/southern portions of 
the forecast area this morning. Will carry 60-80% for those areas...W/ much lower 
probability of precipitation across far northern tier of forecast area. The low will shift off the CST this 
afternoon...resulting in rain tapering off from north-northwest to southeast through the afternoon. 
Toward lt aftn/eve...partial clearing possible...especially across the northern half of the 
forecast area. NE winds become north this afternoon...gusty near the CST. Temperatures to be slo 
to rise through midday/early afternoon...reaching lt day highs mainly in 
the M/u50s. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Tuesday/... 
rain to end across southeast Virginia/NE NC this evening. Partial clearing expected tonight over 
the forecast area. Broad upper level low pressure extending from Canadian Maritimes to 
southeast lakes will remain in place through Monday. Short wave diving southeast through the 
mdatlc states on Monday brings vrb clouds and low probability of precipitation - especially north and east 
locations (alg west/ continued cool conds). Low temperatures Sun night in the 
l/m40s. Hi temperatures Monday in the l60s NE to the m60s elsewhere. Becoming 
mostly clear Monday night...and slightly warmer on Tuesday west/ increased 
amts of sunshine...highs mainly into the M/u60s. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
the period begins with with surface high pressure in place 
allowing for dry weather through midday Wednesday. Beyond then...a low 
confidence forecast (weighted toward the ecmwf) brings low pressure 
up the southeast coast late Wednesday/Wednesday night...then deepens the low off the 
obx on Thursday before quickly shoving it well out to sea Thursday 
night. Based on this solution...will bring slight chance probability of precipitation (20%) 
into southern areas Wednesday...then slight chance probability of precipitation north and chance probability of precipitation 
(30-40%) across the south Wednesday night. Will expand chance probability of precipitation (30-50%) 
across the entire forecast area on Thursday (highest far se)...before dwindling 
rain chances from west to east Thursday night as the low pulls away. 
Dry weather then returns Friday into next weekend as high pressure 
returns. Lows generally in the 40s to low 50s. Highs mainly in the 
60s Wed/Thu...except upper 50s immediate coast Eastern Shore. Highs 
then warm into the middle/upper 60s at the coast to middle 70s inland by 
next Saturday. 


&& 


Aviation /07z Sunday through Thursday/... 
scattered areas of light to moderate rain were moving off the CST early 
this morng...but IFR to MVFR ceilings were at all taf sites except 
sby. Another area of rain will move across the taf sites (except 
maybe sby) from around 08z-17z today...as low pressure tracks from extreme SW 
Virginia south-southeast into SC. So...will maintain IFR to lower MVFR ceilings at 
ric...sby...orf...and phf during this time. Conditions will then 
improve from north to S this afternoon into tonight...as low pressure moves farther 
away to the south-southeast and some drier air filters in from the north-northwest. 


Outlook...dry weather and mainly VFR conditions are expected Monday into 
Wednesday morng...as hi pressure builds in from the northwest. 


&& 


Marine... 
surface high pressure moves well offshore this afternoon/evening with 
light S-southeast winds gradually backing around to the east this evening. 
Low pressure quickly skirts out to sea off the NC coast tonight 
which will bring an increase in winds to 10-15 knots north and 15-20 knots 
south through midday Sunday while the wind direction also backs more 
to the NE-N. A period of Small Craft Advisory winds is expected over the lower ches 
Bay overnight through midday Sunday...and also across the Currituck 
Sound from late Sun morning through sun evening. Waves build to 3 feet across 
the Lower Bay. NE winds will also build seas to around 5 feet along 
the northern obx with some gusts to 25 knots as well. Therefore...an 
Small Craft Advisory for anz658 has been issued for a brief time sun aftn/eve. 
Winds/seas diminish below Small Craft Advisory levels Sun night...before possibly 
ramping back up again on Monday/Tuesday with low pressure off the 
New England coast. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 1 am EDT Monday for anz656-658. 
Small Craft Advisory until 1 PM EDT this afternoon for anz632-
