NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
141 am EDT sun Aug 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will remain centered over the region tonight. A 
weak trough of low pressure will push across the area Sunday night 
into Monday...with high pressure rebuilding over the region on 
later Monday through midweek. 


&& 


Near term /until 8 am this morning/... 
satellite imagery shows initial area of cirrus shield sliding 
through eastern portions of County Warning Area and of the coast. But more 
cloudiness over the southeastern US continues to slowly work northward as 
upper low/trough over the northern Gulf of Mexico. Meanwhile...at the 
surface high pressure...about 1021 mb remains in place over the 
Carolinas into eastern Virginia. The surface high will remain in trenched 
over the region tonight...but with the high level cirrus 
continuing to move across the region...mostly across southern Virginia and 
northern NC after midnight...should see temperatures remain warmer than 
the last few night with most areas remaining into the low to middle 
60s. 


Previous discussion... 
latest surface analysis indicating ~1023 mb surface high pressure 
centered from the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia into central NC with a weak frontal 
boundary stalled across the Gulf Stream off the Georgia/SC coast. Aloft, 
afternoon water vapor imagery/subjective middle level analysis reveals a 
middle level trough extending from the Texarkana region NE into southeast 
Ontario. To the east, a broad upper level low continues to slip 
north-northeast from the central Gulf Coast toward the deep south. 


Thin veil of middle to high level clouds continues to gradually 
increase to the south...first over south central Virginia/interior NE 
NC this evening...eventually reaching the Eastern Shore by late 
tonight. Given the increase in cloud cover and low level moisture, our 
forecast minima are a few degrees milder tonight. Otherwise, look 
for another comfortable and quiet night weatherwise. Forecast early 
morning lows generally in the low to middle 60s. 


&& 


Short term /8 am this morning through Tuesday/... 
high pressure over the coastal plain weakens in place on 
Sunday...as upper level low opens up and lifts northeast across 
the deep south toward the Carolinas Sunday/Sunday night. Outside 
of perhaps a quick sprinkle or two across southern sections sun 
aftn, model soundings continues to show that low levels below 
h9-85 remain too dry for any measurable precipitation through Sunday. 
However, a fairly thick layer of middle/high cloud cover can 
easily be inferred in latest NAM/GFS bufr soundings, increasing 
from SW to NE across the area through the afternoon. Thus, despite the 
increasing thicknesses and rising 850mb temperatures....actual 
highs will only be slightly above Sat values...mainly in the upper 
80s, a few 90f readings possible if clouds hold off until later in 
the day. This represents about a category below warmer envelope of 
MOS guidance (met). 


By Sun night into Monday...the aforementioned upper trough and 
associated shortwave energy is prognosticated to lift NE and get absorbed 
into the northern stream upper trough. Despite only weak 
overrunning/minimal isentropic lift and dry air in low levels, 
middle/upper dynamics could be enough to generate a few showers or 
thunderstorms. Nudged line of 20-30% pop slightly north, to include south 
central Virginia mainly along and south of US 460 into NE NC, mainly for 
after sunset Sunday into the overnight hours Monday morning. 
Lingering shower chances continue for all but Maryland Eastern Shore 
into Monday afternoon...and will have at least 20% probability of precipitation Monday night over NE 
NC zones. A bit more humid Monday with early morning lows mainly in 
the upper 60s to lower 70s...highs Monday mainly in the upper 80s to 
around 90f. 


Monday night/Tuesday... 
weak surface high pressure will remain in place across the region, 
with showers diminishing...as Southeast Ridge builds back west 
across the southeast coast. While a few lingering showers are possible 
across the northern Outer Banks and coastal NC counties, expect a 
mainly dry overnight Monday and a dry day for most on Tuesday. 
Despite moist SW flow, what little weak forcing that exists for 
any late day showers/storms is expected to remain to our south. Have 
therefore capped probability of precipitation in silent (< 14%) range for now. After lows 
in the middle to upper 60s Monday night, expect highs Tuesday in the 
upper 80s to around 90. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
the longwave pattern next week is expected to be characterized by 
broad middle/upper ridging from the north-central to northestern US...with a weak 
trough in vicinity of the Gulf Coast. Broad east-southeast flow beneath the 
ridge is expected to bring increasing tropical moisture into the 
southeastern US. The bulk of this moisture is expected to be from ts 
Erika...or its remnants at that time. The general model consensus 
shows the middle-level anticyclone centered from the Ohio Valley to middle- 
Atlantic through at least Wednesday...which should keep moisture 
suppressed S of the region. If the middle-level high center retreats 
far enough north some of this moisture could spread into the area 
later in the week. However...if the high remains overhead moisture 
should remain S of the region. Warm and increasingly humid 
through the week with forecast highs in the upper 80s to low 90s 
with middle 80s at the immediate coast. By Thursday/Friday 
forecast highs drop into the middle/upper 80s...with low 80s at the 
beaches. Forecast lows are in the upper 60s to low 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Sunday through Thursday/... 


High pressure remains over the region this morning...resulting in 
dry conditions and calm-light winds. Broken-overcast high clouds at or above 25k 
feet above ground level will persist through the morning hours. Little more than 
patchy/shallow ground fog expected over the Piedmont...but expect 
no impacts on taf sites. For today...bkn-ovc high clouds lower to 
around 10-15k feet above ground level late this morning and this afternoon as middle 
level moisture streams into the region...downstream of an upper 
level disturbance over the deep south. Surface winds become southerly 
inland...remaining east to southeast near the coast. Speeds at or below 10 
knots. 


Outlook...a trough of low pressure brings increased moisture to the 
region tonight and Monday. A slight to low chance of showers is 
indicated mainly over southern portions of the area. Mainly dry and VFR 
conds will prevail Monday night through Thursday as high pressure 
builds back over the area. Some shallow ground fog may develop at 
some locations near sunrise. 


&& 


Marine... 
high pressure has centered over the local waters early this 
afternoon. The result is a light onshore breeze ~10 knots. Waves 
generally 1-2 feet and seas 2-3 feet north of Cape Charles Light and 
3-4 feet south of Cape Charles Light. High pressure settles offshore 
overnight...with winds becoming S/se. Seas 2-3 feet north and 3-4 
feet south thanks to onshore flow. Light onshore winds continue 
tonight with seas subsiding to 2-3 feet by late tonight. 


High pressure and sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions continue through at least middle 
week. Winds generally south to west Monday-Wednesday at or below 10-15 knots. Seas 
average 2-3 feet and waves 1-2 feet. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...none.
