NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1002 am EST sun Feb 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will slide off the North Carolina coast today...as 
low pressure over the middle Mississippi Valley moves east. This low 
will push from Ohio into Pennsylvania tonight...and re-develop 
off the New Jersey coast Monday morning. High pressure returns to 
area Tuesday into Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
current analysis depicts ~1028 mb surface high pressure off the 
SC/southern NC coast...with deepening surface low pressure over 
Missouri. WV satellite reveals a digging shortwave trough 
over Colorado...and this will phase with a downstream shortwave 
over Nebraska later today to help drive the surface low east-northeast through 
the day. Over the local area...the sky has become mostly cloudy 
this morning with ceilings of 10-15k feet. Temperatures have risen into 
the middle 30s/low 40s with a light south wind. Not much change to 
forecast reasoning today...surface low in the Midwest has a long way 
to travel before reaching the East Coast...so little in the way of 
forcing for anything more than clouds today. BUFKIT soundings show 
ample middle level moisture through the day so skies should average out 
cloudy to mostly cloudy. A light south-southeast wind of 5-10 miles per hour will boost 
temperatures today...with a fairly mild afternoon expected. Went with a 
blend of mav/met MOS for highs into the Lower-Middle 40s far 
north...to the lower 50s south. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Tuesday/... 
for this evening...deeper moisture is slow to reach east of the 
mountains as surface low at 00z will only be as far east as central Indiana 
or western Ohio. The airmass remains dry below 800mb...so will 
only have low chance probability of precipitation into early evening for the northen and 
western portions of the area. Partial thicknesses support rain 
throughout the evening...but given the dry air initially...the 
onset of precipitation could be a mix of -ra/ice pellets (although with surface temperatures 
in the upper 30s to middle 40s no impacts will occur). Moisture 
steadily increases through the night...with likely probability of precipitation reaching 
northern and western zones between 03-06z...steadily increasing to 
categorical (80-90%) for all areas after 09z. The surface airmass is 
expected to modify through the night as southerly flow develops 
across the region due to the low tracking well north of the area. Lows in 
the upper 30s/low 40s should occur in the evening...with the 
current forecast indicating temperatures rising into the middle-upper 
40s northwest...to low/middle 50s southeast by 12z Monday. 


Likely to categorical probability of precipitation will be maintained for all of the area 
from 12z to 15z Monday...and in far southeast sections this may be the 
period of most significant rainfall. A quick drying trend 
commences from 15-18z although trends are a tad slower than 
previous models had indicated. After 18z...only chance probability of precipitation will be 
continued for the eastern third of the area...with the sky becoming 
partly sunny over interior VA/NC. The day will begin warm...and 
cold air advection will likely wait until after sunset...so highs should range 
from the upper 40s/around 50 f far northwest...to 55-60 f across most of 
the area. 


Deep layer northwest flow prevails Monday night...and backs to westerly 
Tuesday. This will allow surface high pressure (and associated caa) 
to build into the region Monday night...with the high locating along 
the coast by Tuesday afternoon. Lows Monday night should fall into 
the upper teens northwest...to low-middle 20s southeast under a mostly clear sky. 
Cold Tuesday as surface high builds into the region with highs in the low-middle 
30s NE...to the lower 40s SW under a mostly sunny sky. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
surface hi pressure drifts off the CST Tuesday night into Wednesday...resulting in 
milder weather midweek. Cold front approaches from the north-northwest Wednesday...then slowly 
settles S across the area Wednesday night through Thursday...while at the same 
time surface low pressure tracks east in vicinity of Gulf Coast states. Still some 
difference between the latest European model (ecmwf) and GFS...although they are 
slowly coming into better agreement. European model (ecmwf) continues to suppress 
moisture west/ southern low pressure while GFS shows some moisture (and ptntl 
p-type issues) into/across the forecast area (on thu) before departing Thursday night. 
Will go west/ consensus from HPC...and have widespread cloudiness and chance 
probability of precipitation (ra S...mixed snow or rain/snow n) as colder air spreads into the 
region. Dry and cold Fri/Sat. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Sunday through Thursday/... 
high pressure over the region this morning has resulted in dry 
conditions and calm-light winds. A storm system approaching from the 
west will begin to stream broken middle-high clouds into the region this 
morning...varying from 12-15k feet above ground level. For today...high pressure 
drifts offshore. Variable amounts of scattered-broken middle level clouds with 
decks 10 to 15k feet above ground level will cover the area today. May also see a 
few-scattered deck around 5k feet above ground level from kric to ksby. Winds become S-southwesterly 
generally at or below 10 knots. 


Skies become overcast this evening as the approaching surface low lifts into 
the Ohio Valley. The trailing cold front reaches the local area late 
tonight into early Monday morning. Precipitation will begin to spread over the 
Piedmont this evening...reaching kric and ksby by late this evening. 
Have opted to trend sky cover to MVFR and introduce -ra br at kric 
and ksby as a result. 


Cold front sweeps through the local area Monday morning...pushing offshore 
Monday afternoon. Rain will accompany the front...but is expected to 
remain light. Guidance suggests best chances for IFR will be from 
ceilings along and in advance of the front. Visibilities look to be generally 
MVFR at this time. Conditions improve Post frontal with clearing skies late 
Monday-Monday evening. High pressure returns tues-weds. The next cold 
front crosses the region Wednesday night-Thursday morning. 


&& 


Marine... 
high pressure over the waters has resulted in light and variable 
flow this morning with speeds at or below 10 knots. Waves generally 1-2 feet and 
seas 2-3 feet...and subsiding. High pressure slides offshore tonight 
as low pressure and a trailing cold front approach from the west. 
The low will lift north of the waters with the front sweeping through 
the region Monday morning-afternoon. Southerly flow increases in advance of 
the front with Small Craft Advisory headlines in place beginning tonight in the 
Bay/rivers/sound for gusts up to 25 knots. Seas will build to 4-6 feet 
late tonight-early Monday morning in the coastal waters as southerly winds 
increase to 20-30 knots. Headlines begin late tonight for all coastal 
waters. Seas build to 5 to 7 feet Monday afternoon with waves 3-4 feet. 
Cold front crosses the waters Monday afternoon...with flow becoming west 
to northwest Post frontal. Strong cold air advection will kick in Monday evening in tandem 
with increasing gradient winds. The result will be a period of gale 
conditions over the Bay and coastal waters Monday night. A gale watch 
has been hoisted as a result. Gusts of 35-40 knots expected over the 
Bay and coastal waters and gusts of 30 knots in the rivers and sound. 
Seas forecast to build to 6-10 feet Monday night. Freezing spray also 
expected Monday night as temperatures over the waters drop into the low-middle 
20s. 


High pressure builds into the region late Tuesday night with winds 
diminishing through Tuesday morning. Winds will drop below Small Craft Advisory Tuesday 
morning all waters...with seas subsiding to 4-6 feet. Seas expected to 
drop below 5 feet Tuesday afternoon. High pressure remains over the 
waters Tuesday and Wednesday with the next cold front set to cross the 
waters late Wednesday night. Small Craft Advisory conditions are anticipated.
