NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1131 am EDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure over northeast Ohio will tack across the northern 
middle Atlantic region late this afternoon and evening. High pressure 
then returns to the area Wednesday and Thursday. The next cold 
front approaches from the northwest late in the week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
late morning surface analysis reveals low pressure centered over NE 
Ohio...with high pressure over Florida. Skies are mainly sky clear across the 
local area...however latest satellite reveals broken/overcast cloud cover 
in northern WV/PA/ern Ohio..and given a west-northwest flow aloft...expect 
skies to become partly to mostly cloudy for northern portions of 
the akq County Warning Area after 18z. Dew points remain very low...so precipitation chances 
will generally be confined to far northern/NE sections of the County Warning Area...from 
about 20z late this afternoon through 02z this evening. Some of the 
high-res model data depicts measurable quantitative precipitation forecast all the way into southern 
Virginia/NE NC...given how dry it will be and that current observation show 
precipitation falling along/north of the surface low track...will favor a drier 
forecast close to that depicted by the 12z nam12. 


Raised high temperatures a few degrees from previous forecast over much 
of the interior due to deep mixing...slower arrival of clouds and 
current observation. Highs ranging from the middle 60s over the lower Eastern Shore 
to the Lower-Middle 70s most other areas. Breezy SW winds continue to 
increase through the afternoon and will persist through early evening. 
Wind speeds will average 15-20 miles per hour with gusts mainly up to 25-35 miles per hour. 
The combination of dry and breezy conditions will enhance fire 
danger during the afternoon and a statement has been issued. See fire 
weather section below for more detailed information. 


Chances of rain increase late this afternoon/after 20z and through the 
evening as the aforementioned low approaches the middle Atlantic. Not 
expecting much quantitative precipitation forecast (under a tenth of inch) but probability of precipitation are now up to 
60-70% over the lower Eastern Shore where the best moisture and forcing 
will be. Conds dry out quickly after midnight with skies becoming 
mostly clear with low temperatures mainly in the upper 30s to middle 40s. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday/... 
Canadian high pressure returns to the region on Wednesday. A cooler day 
under mostly sunny skies should be anticipated with highs in the 
lower 60s for interior Virginia/NE NC...and in the middle-upper 50s closer 
to the coast. Surface high pressure axis shifts offshore late Wednesday 
night. Light winds and mostly clear skies should result in 
overnight lows in the upper 30s to around 40 most locations. With 
surface high pressure axis offshore on Thursday and a weather disturbance 
approaching the region from the SW...the area will be within a 
warming airmass especially as breezy south winds develop by the 
afternoon. Most inland locations should reach the lower 70s once again 
under mostly sunny skies...with highs in the middle-upper 60s at the 
immediate coast. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
medium range guidance continues to come into better agreement with 
cold frontal passage Fri-Sat...with a nod toward the 30/12z ecwmf. 
Biggest changes compared to 24 hours ago is pushing the precipitation back 6- 
12 hours...with the front now prognosticated to cross the region Friday night- 
Sat morning. Return flow on the back side of high pressure over the 
western Atlantic will advect moisture into the region from the Gulf of 
mex as well as the Gulf Stream. Potent northern stream shortwave locates 
over the Great Lakes region Friday...with an associated area of low 
pressure locating over southeastern Canada. Attendant cold front reaches the 
central Appalachians late Friday...likely stalling as upper level 
support lags behind. Weak perturbations in the SW flow in tandem 
with increasing moisture will result in slight chance-chance probability of precipitation 
across the region Friday...with the best chances over the northern 
Piedmont to the Maryland Eastern Shore. Height falls on the Lee side of the 
Appalachians will likely result in a surface/thermal trough over the 
local area. Theta-E advection and a warm/moist airmass (temps in 
the middle-upper 70s) will maintain a marginally unstable airmass 
over the southern/southeastern local area...ahead of the surface trough. This may 
be enough to touch off showers Friday afternoon from southern Virginia to the 
coast. Will mention slight chance thunder Friday afternoon. A southern 
stream system lifting from the Midwest into the Ohio Valley-northern middle 
Atlantic region Friday night-Sat will develop a surface low along the 
boundary in the vic of the Ohio Valley to Great Lakes. Surface low 
prognosticated to lift into New England late Friday night-Sat 
morning...pushing the cold front through the local area late Friday 
night. Best chances for precipitation at this time appear to be Friday 
night...especially across the northwest half of the local area. Have 
increased to high end chance probability of precipitation. Precipitation exits the coast Sat 
afternoon (possibly quicker) as high pressure builds in from the 
west. Cooler Sat with highs in the upper 50s-low 60s north to middle- 
upper 60s S. Dry sun with zonal flow aloft and high pressure over 
the region. Highs sun low-middle 60s inland and middle-upper 50s Eastern 
Shore and coastal areas. Unsettled weather prognosticated to return early 
next week. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
VFR conditions are expected to persist through the 06z taf 
period. High pressure briefly builds back into the area today before 
a cold front moves through the area Tuesday evening. Ahead of this front... 
gusty SW winds (to about 30 kt) are expected this afternoon. 


A brief -shra cannot be ruled out at ksby this evening. Dry weather and 
VFR conditions then expected Wednesday and Thursday. Gusty SW winds may again 
be possible Thursday afternoon. 


&& 


Marine... 
mainly west winds starting off early today...W/ speeds at or below 10 knots. Low 
pressure approaches from the northwest today...resulting in an increases in 
SW flow over the region by this afternoon. Flow increases to 15-25 knots 
over the water. Waves build to 2-3 feet and seas 3-4 feet. Attendant 
cold front crosses the water tonight west/ flow becoming northwest Post 
frontal. Brief period of sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions expected this evening 
before low level cold air advection surge kicks in. Speeds increase to 15-25 knots 
late tonight...continue Wednesday morning. Seas build to 3-5 feet late tonight into 
Wednesday morning. Surface hi pressure locates over the water Wednesday morning...allowing 
Small Craft Advisory conditions to subside midday/aftn. Hi pressure slides offshore 
Thursday as S flow returns thurs-Fri...avgg 10-20 knots. Cold front 
crosses the water late Friday night-Sat morning. Small Craft Advisory conditions are 
possible Post frontal. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
southwest winds will increase to 15-20 miles per hour with frequent gusts 
between 25-35 miles per hour this afternoon. These winds in combination with 
relative humidity values dropping to 20 to 25% range across Virginia 
and northeast NC will increase the fire danger. After coordinating 
with the NC and Virginia forestry officials and surrounding National Weather Service 
offices...will maintain an enhanced Fire Danger Statement for this 
afternoon. Critical red flag criteria may be met in a few 
locations across the Virginia Piedmont. However...10-hr dead fuel 
moisture values are still marginal or slightly exceeding the 
necessary threshold of 7%. On the Eastern Shore...a statement will 
not be necessary due to higher minimum relative humidity values 
and the potential for incoming clouds with an approaching low 
pressure system. 


&& 


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