NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
346 am EDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will intensify as it slowly tracks northeast off the 
New England coast today through Friday. High pressure settles 
over the Middle Atlantic States for Friday into Saturday. Dry cold 
front moves across the region Saturday night. High pressure builds 
back into and over the area for Sunday and Monday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
early this morng...surface low pressure was centered off the New Jersey CST. 
The low will continue to intensify as it slowly tracks NE off the 
New England CST today through Friday. Meanwhile...hi pressure will gradually 
build in from the Ohio Valley. The pressure gradient remains tight between 
these two features today...allowing breezy/windy conditions to 
continue. Highest winds will be along the CST where gusts of 
30-35 miles per hour will occur...15-25 miles per hour elsewhere. Will maintain a 20% 
pop over the eastern shr into early this afternoon...dry weather elsewhere. Still 
enough residual low level moisture and a cold pool aloft for the 
sky to average out mostly cloudy east-northeast to partly to mostly sunny 
west-southwest. Highs ranging from the upper 50s to around 60 on the lower Maryland eastern 
shr...to the upper 60s for interior NE NC and S central Virginia. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Saturday/... 
clear/mostly clear west-southwest to partly cloudy NE tonight...with lows 
ranging through the 40s into the lower 50s. Low pressure continues to move 
farther NE and away from the local area on Friday...allowing for a 
mainly sunny sky...diminishing winds...and milder temperatures. Highs 
on Friday ranging from the middle 60s NE to around 70 SW. Hi pressure remains 
in control on Sat with dry and pleasant conditions. Highs in the 
upper 60s to lower 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
a weak trough clips the northern middle-Atlantic Saturday night and quickly 
moves off the coast Sunday. A high amplitude middle/upper level ridge 
builds over the eastern US Monday and Tuesday...with the axis shifting 
offshore by Wednesday. Given this...dry conditions will prevail 
through Wednesday. High temperatures should average in the upper 60s 
to around 70 Sunday...and trend upward into the low/middle 70s by 
Monday through Wednesday. Lows through the period should average 
from the low/middle 40s northwest...to the low/middle 50s for southeast coastal 
locations. A cold front approaches from the northwest later in the period. 
22/12z GFS/European model (ecmwf) each have trended somewhat wetter as a wave of low 
pressure develops along the front. However...moisture appears to be 
rather limited. 


&& 


Aviation /07z Thursday through Monday/... 
VFR conds over regional terminals early this morning, with areas 
of MVFR lingering along the coast with ceilings ~3kft. Deepening low 
pressure system now well of the New York/New Jersey coast... will continue up the 
New England coast by the end of the taf period...eventually 
locating off the coast of Maine by Friday morning. Conds will 
gradually improve through the day, with VFR conds to persist 
across the entire region through Friday morning. Pressure gradient will 
remain compressed today...resulting in gusty north-northwest winds to around 
20-25 knots over the Eastern Shore into Thursday afternoon. 


Outlook...high pressure will continue to build over the region 
from the west Thursday night and Friday. VFR conds look to persist Friday 
and through thw weekend. 


&& 


Marine... 
deepening area of low pressure continues to lifts NE off the 
northeast coast this morning...and will lift to a position off the 
New England by tonight. Latest observation reflect north-northwest winds 20-30kt, with 
gusts to around 35kt. Gales remain in place over the coastal waters 
and the mouth of ches Bay through this afternoon...and should be replaced 
by Small Craft Advisory from south to north this afternoon as pressure gradient begins to 
slacken. Expect subsequent scas will remain flying through Friday 
aftn/evening. Seas have increased to 8-10 feet out near 20nm...4-6ft 
seas nearshore (3-5ft waves in the bay). As surface low continues to 
lift NE towards Nova Scotia on Friday, high pressure will build to 
the west of the waters, allowing seas to gradually subside below 5 
feet by Friday afternoon. Another weak frontal boundary crosses the region 
Saturday night bringing the potential for another brief period of 
Small Craft Advisory conditions late Sat night/early sun. High pressure eventually builds 
over the area late Sunday through midweek. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
have added a coastal Flood Advisory for this morning's high tide cycle 
over Worcester County. Tidal departures in vicinity of Ocean City 
Inlet will average 1.5-2.0 feet above normal during high tide again 
Thursday morning. The current forecast has Ocean City Inlet 
exceeding minor during high tide Thursday morning as the 
astronomical tide will be a few tenths higher. With a north-northwest 
wind...the main areas of concern will be along the shorelines of 
Assawoman and chincoteauge bays...and the adjacent ocean inlets. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...coastal Flood Advisory until 11 am EDT this morning for mdz024- 
025. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 5 am EDT Friday for anz635>638.
