NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
913 PM EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds over the southeastern states through Tuesday. 
A weak front drops into the area Tuesday night and settles near 
the Virginia North Carolina border Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Tuesday morning/... 
dropped probability of precipitation as convection ahead of surface trough now offshore. Weak 
surface ridging keeps forecast area dry overnight. M clear to pt cloudy. Lows 70-75. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Tuesday morning through Thursday/... 
Tuesday... 
mini heat wave culminates tomorrow. 850mb temperatures average 
around 20c, which combined with deep mixing and a SW wind of 
10-15mph should boost highs into the middle/upper 90s inland with 
low 90s along the coastlines. Afternoon dewpoints should mix back 
into the middle/upper 60s...which should once again serve to keep 
heat indices at or below 100. Forecast highs average around +1.5-2.0 St 
dev above seasonal means...and approach but fall just short of 
records...which are listed in the climate section below for 
reference. Model soundings continue show much of the area to be 
well-capped above cumulus bases, and thus have kept a silent pop 
through much of the day aside from NE NC along sea breeze. The 
approach and passage of a weak cold front late Tuesday night could 
trigger a few showers/tstms...but overall coverage should be very 
limited. 


Wednesday-thursday: 
the front washes out over the area, with the surface trough becoming 
stalled south of the area Wednesday night, before getting shunted 
back north on Thursday in response to upper ridging over the 
eastern Continental U.S.. given continued moist airmass, will go with a 
20-30% pop each day centered mainly along the trough axis over 
the southern third of the County Warning Area...but do expect sky cover to 
average out partly to mostly sunny. Highs each day will remain 
about a category above normal...but will dropping back to around 
90 inland, slightly cooler along the immediate coast. Lows 
Tuesday/Wednesday mornings should average in the low/middle 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
long term period will start off with above normal temperatures and 
occasional chances for rain. For Thursday ngt/Fri...surface hi pressure centers 
offshore with a broad upper-level ridge across the eastern Continental U.S.. did 
include a slight chance-chance for a rain showers/thunderstorm (especially over western 
areas) closest to the greatest moisture axis and surface Lee trough...but 
nothing widespread expected. Temperatures Friday will rise into the upper 80s to 
lower 90s under a mostly/partly sky and light southerly winds. 


For the remainder of the period...cold front approaches from the west 
as an upper-level trough digs across the eastern Continental U.S.. chances for rain 
will increase into the weekend as the front drops into the middle 
Atlantic. Tough to exactly time the precipitation this far out in 
time...but for now will go with a 30-40% chance for rain showers/thunderstorms both 
Sat and sun. Hi temperatures ahead of the front Sat will be near 
90...dropping into the low to middle 80s on sun with increased cloud 
cover and the front in the vicinity. 


&& 


Aviation /01z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
VFR conditions will continue to prevail through the overnight. Moist 
atmosphere may lead to MVFR visible Tuesday morning. Winds will generally 
be south-southwest-SW at or below 10 knots. High pressure remains anchored over the western 
Atlantic through midweek but as a weak surface trough remains over the 
region...expect isolated afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms. 


A cold front approaches from the west on Tuesday...crossing the 
region late Tuesday night into Wednesday. High pressure returns Thursday 
as the front stalls over the Carolinas. 


&& 


Marine... 
sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions will continue this week. Surface hi pressure remains 
anchored over the western Atlantic this evening with a Lee trough over the middle 
Atlantic. Resulting southerly flow will average 10-15 knots...with 1-2 feet waves 
over the Bay and 2-4 feet seas over coastal waters. Similar conditions into 
Tuesday with little change in the pattern. A frontal boundary drops into the 
area and weakens Tuesday ngt/Wed...leading to light/vrb winds by late 
Wednesday/Wednesday night and seas at or below 3 feet. Not anticipating any headlines at this time 
due to a lack of cold air advection/surge Post frontal. Hi pressure returns Wednesday night 
through Friday as sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions continue.
