NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
652 am EDT Sat Apr 30 2016 


Synopsis... 
a frontal boundary remains stalled across the middle Atlantic region 
through the weekend. Low pressure will move east along this boundary 
bringing widespread rain tonight into Sunday morning...then showers 
and possible scattered thunderstorms Sunday afternoon. Scattered 
showers will linger into early next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
widespread ceilings at or below 1kft at this time as low level flow remains from the east-northeast. Frontal 
boundary has settled a bit farther S so far overnight across NC. Wedge 
remains firmly in place over the forecast area. 


Model Li forecasts suggest wedge hangs on throughout today across all of the 
forecast area west/ little chance for any clearing/substantial warming. Will have 
areas of dz/patchy fog until about middle morning...then chances for rain slowly 
increases from west-east through lt afternoon. Hi temperatures from the M-u50s at the 
beaches to mainly 60-65f elsewhere. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Monday/... 
probability of precipitation becoming likely or higher over much of the forecast area tonight...lasting 
into Sun morning as middle level warm/moist air advection increases. Low 
level wedge remains in place through Sun morning per Li forecast. Gradual 
erosion of The Wedge expected on Sunday...W/ marginal instability 
enough to result in development of isolated/scattered thunderstorms...mainly in 
southern/southeast Virginia-NE NC. Expecting continued mostly cloudy conds on sun...though 
becoming warmer as low level flow turns more south-southwesterly. 


Vrb clouds/partly cloudy sun evening...then stratus likely to reform Sun 
night and continue early Monday morning. Some drying expected on Monday as deep layered 
west-southwest flow prevails. A trough of low pressure crossing the area may 
combine west/ heating to aid in development of rain showers/thunderstorms Monday 
afternoon/evening (esp southeast Virginia/NE nc). 


Low temperatures tonight in the l-m50s. Hi temperatures sun from the M-u60s on the Eastern 
Shore to the M-u70s inland. Low temperatures Sun night mainly in the l-m60s. 
Hi temperatures Monday in the M-u70s north and on the Eastern Shore to the l80s across 
southern Virginia-NE NC (u60s-l70s at the beaches). 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
long term period will feature frequent chances for rain and near 
to slightly below normal temperatures. For Monday ngt/Tue...a stalled frntal 
boundary remains just S of of the local area with middle-level energy 
swinging through the Ohio Valley. Probability of precipitation are in the chance range (30-50%). 
Low temperatures Monday night range through the 50s with hi temperatures Tuesday in the 
middle/upper 60s. Similar setup for Wednesday (chc pops) as surface low pressure 
develops along the stalled front. Retained some probability of precipitation into Thursday as 
well with an upper-level trough over the eastern Continental U.S.. temperatures will climb a 
bit each day...with highs in the low/middle 70s by Thursday. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
wedge pattern will keep poor aviation conditions at the taf sites 
through the 12z taf period. IFR ceilings will be slow to improve 
today...until late morning/early afternoon. Guidance is still 
suggesting the possibility of MVFR/VFR ceilings by late aftn/eve. Not 
quite sold on that given lack of clearing the past few days so 
will err on the lower end of guidance. 


A warm front lifts through the area late tonight with an 
increasing chance for -ra and degraded flight conditions toward Sunday 
morning. -Ra is likely Sunday into Sunday night...with a slight 
chance of thunderstorms Sunday afternoon. 


&& 


Marine... 
NE flow 10-15 knots will continue today with high pressure centered to 
the north of the local area. Seas remain elevated over the northern 
coastal waters early this morning (5-6 ft)...and seas continue to 
build farther south. Latest wnawave/nwps guidance show seas 
building to 5 feet across all outer waters later this morning and 
remaining elevated much of today. Therefore...have extended Small Craft Advisory 
(mainly for seas) for all coastal waters through 5 PM. 


Sub-Small Craft Advisory NE flow becomes east-southeast tonight then south on sun as surface low 
pressure moves through the Ohio Valley. This low will bring a cold front into 
the local area Monday morning...which drops south of the local area by 
Tuesday. Overall...sub-sca conditions will prevail through at least the 
middle of the coming week. However...seas may briefly build to 5 feet 
across the northern waters Sun night/Monday morning in southerly flow. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 5 PM EDT this afternoon for anz650- 
652-654-656-658.
