NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
657 am EDT sun Mar 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure settles over the region today and moves offshore 
this evening. A weak cold front approaches from the northwest this 
evening and moves across the area late tonight through early 
Monday morning. High pressure returns Monday afternoon into Monday 
night. Low pressure tracks across the northern middle Atlantic 
Tuesday with the associated cold front dropping through the region 
Tuesday night. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
the latest surface analysis shows 1030mb high pressure centered 
over the upper Ohio Valley. This high is slowly building into the 
middle Atlantic with many locations over the Piedmont and interior 
coastal plain now decoupling evidenced by calm conditions. 
Meanwhile...a gusty northwest wind persists along the coast. Temperatures 
over the Piedmont and interior coastal plain have generally 
dropped into the low/middle 20s as of 330am with lku showing a 
temperature of 18 at 315am. Farther east...temperatures remain in the 
upper 20s to low 30s...although wind chill values are in the low 
20s. See the climatology section below for record lows for this morning. 


High pressure will build across the southeast states today...which 
will result in sunny and dry conditions locally along with a light 
wind. Mixing will be limited with high pressure overhead...so 
highs will only reach the low/middle 40s along the coast...to low 50s 
over interior Virginia/NE NC despite full sun. These values will average 
about -1.5 St dev below the seasonal mean. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Tuesday/... 
high pressure shifts offshore tonight as a middle-level trough 
tracks across the Great Lakes. An associated middle-level cold front 
then moves across the middle Atlantic late tonight through midday 
Monday. Numerical models show a decent band of uvm sliding northwest-southeast 
across the local area between about 09-18z. However...moisture 
remain very limited below 850mb. Given this have trended probability of precipitation 
upward into the high chance category (40-50%) for what should amount 
to a light quantitative precipitation forecast event (~0.10in or less). 


Temperatures should drop quickly this evening under a clear sky. 
Overnight lows should be coldest east (low 30s) where clear 
conditions will persist the longest. Farther west...lows should be in 
the middle/upper 30s...but surface wet-bulbs will be in the low 30s 
so it is possible that the onset of precipitation could include a mix of 
-ra/ip. The surface portion of the cold front is mainly a wind 
shift...so highs Monday will be warmer averaging from the upper 
50s/low 60s along the coast...to the middle 60s inland with downslope 
westerly flow in the wake of the boundary. 


A fast moving low pressure system driven by zonal flow aloft 
tracks across the northern middle Atlantic Tuesday afternoon. Expect 
mostly sunny conditions to begin the day with increasing clouds 
across the north by afternoon. A ribbon of 20-25% probability of precipitation (for -shra) has 
been included for the northern tier counties and this is mainly to 
account for uncertainty of the low track. It will be difficult to 
get any precipitation S of the low track with deep layered west-southwest flow. 


Low-level thickness values support highs approaching 70f on 
Tuesday over interior Virginia/NE NC. This is certainly possible with 
low pressure tracking north of the region resulting in deep layered 
west-southwest flow. Forecast highs have been increased into the upper 60s 
over the aforementioned areas...with low 60s over the Eastern 
Shore...and locally cooler values along the immediate Atlantic 
coast. This will be after morning lows in the upper 30s to low 
40s. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
better agreement in medium range guidance with respect to handling 
split flow compared to 24 hours ago. To begin the extended...good 
model consensus now with a northern stream wave dropping into the northern middle- 
Atlantic region late Tuesday night. Associated surface low prognosticated to track 
across northern Virginia/Maryland Tuesday night with a weak cold front sweeping across 
the region early Wednesday morning. Best moisture/lift will be north of 
the local area...but will introduce slight chance-low end chance 
probability of precipitation across the NE zones late Tuesday night closest to best 
moisture/lift. Surface low and cold front push well offshore Wednesday as surface 
high pressure centers over the region. Modest cold air advection and mostly sunny 
skies will result in temperatures in the low-middle 60s inland and middle-upper 
50s Eastern Shore and coastal areas. High pressure pushes offshore Wednesday 
night-Thursday as a southern stream wave lifts from the Southern Plains into the 
Tennessee Valley. Moisture return expected thanks to increasing S-southeast flow. 
28/12z European model (ecmwf) quicker with bringing precipitation into the region Thursday 
afternoon. Have dropped probability of precipitation Thursday afternoon...but kept slight 
chance probability of precipitation across the Piedmont. South-southwest flow will help moderate temperatures 
into the upper 60s to around 70 inland to low-middle 60s coastal areas 
Thursday. Expect clouds to increase Thursday afternoon. 
Thereafter...chance for precipitation ramp up Thursday night-Friday as the southern 
stream wave lifts over the region. Northern stream wave over the upper 
Midwest also prognosticated to flatten and track across the Great Lakes 
region late Thursday-Thursday night. Associated occluded surface low locates 
over southeastern Canada Thursday night-Friday morning...with an attendant cold 
front crossing the region during the Friday-Sat timeframe. Spatial and 
timing differences exist...but will carry chance probability of precipitation through Sat 
morning. Slight warmer Friday with highs in the low-middle 70s inland and 
low-middle 60s coastal areas. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Sunday through Thursday/... 
VFR through the 12z taf period. Surface hi pressure builds in from the west 
today...becoming centered over the Carolinas by this afternoon. This will 
allow north-northwest winds...gusty at times this morng...to shift to the S/SW 
later in the day. Otws...dry weather expected with just some increasing 
hi clouds this eveng. 


Outlook...the aforementioned high will move to the S/southeast 
tonight...with a weak cold front crossing the area on Monday. 
There will be a chance for showers early Monday. High pressure 
builds back into the area Tuesday. A chance for showers returns 
Thursday. 


&& 


Marine... 
latest surface analysis reveals broad hi pressure centered over the Ohio 
Valley. Strong winds continue this morng with pressure rises and cold air advection 
over the local area. Small Craft Advisory headlines continue as planned...ending 
later this morng over the Bay...then over the Bay/sound...and 
finally over coastal waters midday as seas subside to below 5ft. Improving 
marine conds expected this afternoon as the hi centers over the 
Carolinas. The next cold front approaches from the west tonight... 
crossing the waters late Monday-early Monday night. Prefrontal southerly surge 
expected late tonight...with speeds increasing to 15 knots in the Bay 
and 20 knots in the coastal waters. Models indicate Small Craft Advisory 
conditions...but based on warm air advection and cold water...expect a sharp low 
level inversion to prevent strongest winds from mixing to the water. 
Have capped speeds below Small Craft Advisory at this time and will continue to monitor as 
conds will be close to Small Craft Advisory thresholds. Southerly fetch may push seas to 5 
feet in the northern coastal waters Monday morning. Southwesterly flow returns Monday 
night-tues. Low pressure tracks across the middle-Atlantic region late 
Tuesday with another front crossing the water early Wednesday night. Winds 
stay at or below 15 knots. High pressure returns weds-thurs.
