NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
357 am EDT sun Sep 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure moves northward off the middle Atlantic coast this morning. 
A cold front sweeps through the region tonight and Monday morning. 
High pressure covers the region Tuesday through the end of the 
week...with dry and cooler conditions in place. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest msas analysis shows 1006 mb low lifting northward off the 
NC coast. Meanwhile...weak high pressure extends from the New 
England coast into the Piedmont of VA/NC. Rain continues to fall 
across much of eastern NC early this morning...with the heaviest 
precipitation from kpgv-kewn on eastward to the central obx. High pressure 
wedged in place across Virginia is keeping the majority of the rain 
associated with the coastal low either south of our forecast area or 
offshore. However...rain has increased in coverage along the 
Albemarle Sound over to the northern obx in the past few 
hours...and appears from latest radar images that some rain will 
move into Virginia Beach in the next little while. The surface low is 
expected to move quickly NE to just southeast of Hatteras by 12z. As it 
does so...expecting rain to continue across our far southeast areas and 
that is where will maintain highest probability of precipitation (high likely to 
categorical). Showers will also continue to push westward into the 
northern coastal waters through 12z as well...so will carry some 
probability of precipitation northward along the coast to the Delaware border. 


By 18z...high res models have the surface low offshore of the 
Delaware-Maryland-Virginia...with any leftover light rain limited to immediate 
coastal locations and offshore. Will slowly lower probability of precipitation through 
midday. Attention then turns to an approaching cold front that 
moves eastward across the Ohio Valley today...before crossing the 
mountains and moving through the local area overnight. Models 
indicate limited forcing and moisture along/ahead of front...so 
widespread precipitation is not expected. Will maintain 20-30% probability of precipitation 
across the Piedmont/I-95 corridor this evening...probably dry 
across eastern areas. Have also included a slight chance for thunderstorms 
this evening...with some marginal instability expected ahead of 
the front. Winds tuning to the west-SW this afternoon coupled with 
increasing sunshine and 850 mb temperatures warming to around +17c will 
result in high temperatures in the middle/upper 80s most places. Lows tonight 
in the upper 50s northwest to near 70 along the southeast coast. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Tuesday/... 
after the front clears southeastern sections of the forecast area by late Monday 
morning...high pressure builds into the entire region with much 
drier air...and comfortable maximum temperatures 75-80 degrees. Did maintain 
slight chance probability of precipitation (20%) across the far southeast in the morning as the 
front clears. 


The coolest night of the fall thus far expected Monday 
night...with many inland areas dropping to between 45 and 50 (mid 
50s to middle 60s near the coast). A sunny and pleasant day is expected 
Tuesday with high pressure in place. Highs in the low to middle 70s 
(perhaps even remaining the 60s at the beaches). 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
the long term period will feature generally dry conditions and below 
normal temperatures. Synoptic pattern will remain fairly stagnant through the 
period with surface hi pressure centered in the vicinity of the Ohio Valley/NE 
states and a trough of low pressure located off the middle Atlantic CST. This 
will lead to dry weather over inland areas with an occasional slight chance 
of rain especially near the CST closer to the trough. Tough to 
pinpoint exact timing at this point so will stick to 20% probability of precipitation for 
now. In general 12z GFS keeps any precipitation S of the area while European model (ecmwf) 
brings the precipitation into NE NC/southeast Virginia by Wednesday. Hi temperatures will average in the 
middle to upper 70s while lows will range from the lower 50s to lower 60s over 
most of the area. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Sunday through Thursday/... 
low pressure is presently (as of 06z) tracking north-northeast off the 
Carolina coast. Meanwhile...high pressure remains anchored off the 
New England coast with a surface ridge axis extending back through 
the northern mid-Atlantic. Rain over eastern NC is struggling to move north of the 
Albemarle Sound given the persistence of the high to the north. Ecg 
could experience occasional -ra through 12z...but should be light 
enough to have little impact on visibility. Stratus at sby should 
persist through 13-14z...and IFR at orf should be short-lived. 
Elsewhere...stratus is developing over the interior coastal plain. 
This could potentially impact ric/phf...so tempo IFR has been 
included at both terminals beginning 08-09z and ending 12z. The 
low should quickly pulls off to the NE later this morning...with 
the wind shifting from NE to northwest along with drier air arriving from 
the northwest. A cold front approaches from the northwest later today and 
crosses the region late tonight. The wind will shift to SW later 
this afternoon...along with a slight chance of -shra/thunderstorms and rain mainly 
along and northwest of a line from ric to sby. High pressure builds north of 
the region through midweek as the front stalls in vicinity of the 
southeast coast. 


&& 


Marine... 
low pressure is tracking north-northeast off the Carolina coast early this 
morning. This low will accelerate to the northeast today as it 
tracks well off the middle-Atlantic coast. A north-northeast wind is expected to 
increase this morning from the mouth of the Bay southward as the low 
makes its closest approach. A period of sustained 20-25kt wind is 
possible especially off the Currituck Outer Banks. A cold front then 
approaches from the northwest later this afternoon and crosses the middle 
Atlantic coast late tonight. The wind should diminish this 
afternoon...and then shift to SW late and increase to 10-15kt over 
the Bay/sound rivers and 15-20kt over the ocean this evening. Seas 
should average 5-7ft through the day...before subsiding to 4-5ft 
tonight. Scas for the mouth of the Bay and sound will run through 
17z...and the Small Craft Advisory for the ocean will run through 08z tonight as seas 
should be slow to subside...especially out near 20nm. The wind 
shifts to northwest late tonight into Monday. The initial cold air advection surge late 
tonight/early Monday is expected to be sub-sca. A stronger northerly 
surge is possible late Monday night/early Tuesday...and this could 
bring a period of low-end Small Craft Advisory conditions to the Lower Bay. High 
pressure builds north of the region Tuesday through the end of the week 
as the cold front stalls in vicinity of the southeast coast. This 
will bring a period of prolonged NE flow...which will result in 
elevated seas/waves and likely Small Craft Advisory conditions. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
monitoring tides in vicinity of Middle Bay (specifically Lewisetta 
Virginia...Cambridge and Bishops Head md)...where forecast levels for tides 
ovnngt to fall just short of minor thresholds. Tidal departures 
are running about a foot above normal at this time. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...moderate rip current risk from 8 am EDT this morning through 
this evening for mdz025. 
NC...beach hazards statement from 8 am EDT this morning through 
this evening for ncz102. 
Virginia...Beach hazards statement from 8 am EDT this morning through 
this evening for vaz098.
