NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
433 am EDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
an upper level low pressure system will swing across southern New 
England and off the coast today and tonight...pushing a weak cold 
front through the local area. High pressure will build over the 
middle Atlantic region on Thursday...ahead of a strong cold front 
which approaches from the west Friday. The cold front crosses the 
region Friday night...ushering in much cooler and drier weather 
for the upcoming weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest weather analysis features weak frontal boundary draped just north 
of the local area. Closed upper low over PA will continue to pivot 
east-NE towards southern England and offshore through tonight. Resultant low 
level flow behind the system will shunt a weak back door south 
across the region this afternoon through early this evening. 


Once again noting some persistent low stratus and fog over the 
area this morning, including some locally dense fog in spots 
across the SW Piedmont. As noted yda, local traffic cameras 
indicate that low visibilities <1sm aren't too widespread just yet...so 
an Special Weather Statement has been issued for now. Will continue to monitor and may 
need to go with a narrow dense fog advisory area towards dawn if dense 
fog appears to become more widespread. 


As with yda, expect low stratus inland will begin to lift slowly by 
middle-morning through midday. Kakq radar continues to pick up some 
very light rain showers across the Northern Neck and Eastern Shore in 
association with some very weak overrunning moisture along and 
north of the boundary. Have maintained a low pop this morning over 
the NE County Warning Area...and for the afternoon over the Piedmont as the hrrr is 
keying in on some very light overrunning moisture/weak dvpa on the 
back side of the departing system which could bring some isolated 
sprinkles or light rain showers. Otherwise, expect subsidence and shortwave 
ridging will bring some short lived clearing late this afternoon and 
tonight. Forecast maxima range from middle to u70s north and Eastern 
Shore to around 80 southwest under a gradually clearing sky. 


East-NE flow will bring increasing clouds tonight...and another period 
of low stratus late tonight into early Thursday. Bufr soundings are dry 
above h9 but are nearly saturated in low levels. Could see some 
patchy drizzle late tonight mainly over the Piedmont, but west/ chances of 
accumulating precipitation quite low, will go with a dry forecast for now. 
Went with warmer envelope of NAM guidance for minima tonight with low 
clouds and onshore flow expected. Lows generally u50s to l60s. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday/... 
shortwave ridging continues to build east across the eastern 
Seaboard downstream of upper level trough racing east across the 
plains on Thursday. Meanwhile at the sfc, high pressure will ridge 
south into the region from New England. Will hold onto a low chance 
pop Thursday morning as low stratus/dz once again scours out. 
Thereafter, expect vrb clouds and dry weather Thursday. Ggem and downscale NAM 
do continue to hint at some very weak overrunning, but lift 
appears too shallow to yield much more than some very light rain 
rain showers/sprinkles, oriented mainly west of I-95. Once again, have 
opted to go dry for now. High temperatures Thursday Manly from the middle 70s to 
around 80. 


Aforementioned anomalously deep upper trough racing east across the 
plains will dig east-southeast across through the Midwest/Tennessee Valley Thursday night and 
Friday. East-southeast flow will result in incrsg moisture and overcast conditions 
Thursday night and Friday and some isolated rain showers will be possible by Friday 
morning. The most widespread precipitation associated west/ the approaching 
strong cold front should remain just west of the forecast area Friday afternoon. Hi temperatures Friday 
from the M/u70s on the eastern shr to l80s across interior portions of southeast 
Virginia/NE NC. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
a potent upper level trough will become cut off over the northern 
Great Lakes region Friday night/early Saturday before lifting NE 
into southeast Canada on Sunday. Strong jet energy rounding the base of the 
trough/upper low will force a cold front quickly through the region 
Friday night...then offshore Saturday morning. Widespread showers 
are expected Friday night with the frontal passage and will carry high likely 
probability of precipitation. Strong forcing but limited instability ahead of the front may 
trigger an isolated thunderstorm or two Friday evening, so will include a 
slight chance for thunderstorms. The front is expected to push off the coast 
around 12z Sat...W/ shower chances to end quickly from west to 
east Saturday morning. Will limit rain showers chances on Saturday 
morning to the far eastern areas. High pressure returns Saturday 
night and Sunday for dry weather. The aforementioned upper low lingers 
across southern Canada early next week...with another spoke of 
energy rotating around the base of the trough Monday night/Tuesday 
for a slight chance of showers. Highs Saturday 70-75. Cooler 
Sunday with highs 65-70. Highs Monday/Tuesday 70-75. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
flight conditions vary from LIFR to IFR across the region early this 
morning due to a combination of low stratus and fog. The lowest 
visibilities as of 01/0730z are being observed across rural areas of 
scntrl Virginia from generally kakq-kfkn-kemv...where areas of locally 
dense fog are possible. Conditions will be IFR to MVFR along the 
Atlantic coast and up into the Eastern Shore where winds of 5-10kt 
and light rain showers are keeping the lower atmoshpere mixed...thus 
preventing anything more than patchy fog development with scattered low 
stratus. Conditions may worsen briefly around sunrise but should 
improve 01/1300-1400z. Daytime instability will allow any breaks in 
stratus/fog this morning to fill back in by this afternoon. Late day 
clearing is expected just before sunset...however the presence of an 
upper level ridge and a weakening surface boundary will allow another 
influx of clouds into the area Wednesday night (cigs above 8 kft agl). Dry 
weather is anticipated through early Friday but will need to consider 
fog/stratus development each night. A strong cold front crosses the 
area Friday night into Sat. Strengthening winds ahead of and behind the 
frontal passage should be expected in addition to moderate-heavy rainfall at 
times. 


&& 


Marine... 
north-NE winds are generally light around 10 knots or less early this 
morning as a weak cold front crosses the southern waters. An upper 
level low pressure system will move east across PA and then NE along 
the New England coast today...before pushing well off the coast on 
Thursday. Winds today through Thursday will remain out of the north or NE 
at or below 15kt. Seas will increase to 3-4 feet late tonight/early 
Wednesday...highest over offshore waters. Swan guidance builds seas to 
around 5ft near 20nm more aggressively than wavewatch. Due to weak 
cold air advection and a surface pressure gradient that is not all that 
impressive...have kept 5ft seas just beyond the 20nm mark for 
tonight through Thursday night. Therefore no Small Craft Advisory flags have been issued 
with this forecast package. Winds veer around to the S-SW Friday 
into early Saturday ahead of a strong cold front...which crosses 
into the area early Saturday. Winds then quickly swing around to the 
northwest behind the front by Saturday afternoon. Winds and seas diminish Sunday 
into Sunday evening. A period of Small Craft Advisory conditions may be possible late 
Friday into Saturday.
