NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
657 am EDT Monday Aug 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
weak low pressure pushes across the area today and tonight. High 
pressure builds back across the southeast and Middle Atlantic States 
for the midweek period. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
current analysis indicating weak surface high pressure still situated 
along the NE NC coast...with a surface trough farther south from the 
Georgia/SC coast into central NC. Flow aloft is from the SW...with 
upper level low situated over the southern Appalachians. The 
associated moisture plume continues to send clouds northward 
across the County Warning Area...although still mainly have ceilings of 10-15 k feet 
across the County Warning Area so the chance for measurable rain remains fairly low for 
the next couple of hours despite some increasing coverage on the 
radar. However...some lower ceilings are not too far off...now pushing 
into central NC and with increasing isentropic lift by 
daybreak...expect coverage of showers to become more numerous over 
southern Virginia and NE NC. Despite this being a low quantitative precipitation forecast event for most 
of the County Warning Area...decided to bring scattered wording/chance probability of precipitation into all 
of central Virginia this morning...with a band of more significant rain 
(and locally moderate to heavy rain) and likely probability of precipitation developing 
over far southern Virginia and NE NC later this morning...and slowly 
shifting to far southeast Virginia/NE NC this afternoon. Will maintain 20-30% probability of precipitation 
into the afternoon across areas farther to the north and west including central 
Virginia. With fairly weak flow both aloft and at the the surface this afternoon 
combined with lingering middle level moisture...suspect skies will remain 
fairly cloudy until late afternoon or even early evening...far north/northwest 
zones have best chance for seeing some sun after 18-21z...elsewhere 
will call it mostly cloudy. Lowered high temperatures today to the lower 
80s over the far S/se...with middle to upper 80s elsewhere. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Wednesday/... 
for tonight...will continue with chance probability of precipitation S/southeast to around a 20% pop 
farther north as shortwave energy gradually pushes from northwest to southeast 
across the region. Warm/humid overnight with lows mainly in the 
upper 60s northwest...to the lower 70s farther southeast. 


Tuesday/Wednesday... 
weak surface high pressure will remain in place across the region, 
with showers diminishing to begin the period Tuesday morning. The 
southeast (subtropical) ridge builds back west across the southeast 
coast on Tuesday, as weak troughing taking shape from the western 
Gulf Coast to the Ozarks. Models eventually close this wave off 
by Wednesday morning...and this in tandem with the antecedent 
moist airmass and upper ridge aloft will bring increasing heat and 
humidity for the midweek period. Forcing for any late day 
showers/storms is fairly weak and mainly to our south...and thus 
probability of precipitation remain low both days. Will carry a 20% pop across the far S/southeast 
for isolated afternoon/early evening showers/thunderstorms on Tuesday...with a more 
general 20% pop for most of the County Warning Area on Wednesday (30% nw). Expect highs 
Tuesday in the middle to upper 80s near the coast to the upper 80s to 
lower 90s inland...and around 90/lower 90s for most on Wednesday. 
Early morning lows each day upper 60s to low 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
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. Weak cold front and upper 
trough pass through the middle-Atlantic on Thursday but this looks to 
have little affect on the current weather pattern. 


Warm and increasingly humid through the week with forecast highs in 
the upper 80s to low 90s with middle-upper 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 /12z Monday through Friday/... 
latest regional radar mosaic depicts isolated to widely scattered 
light showers/sprinkles across the local area this morning. An 
area of showers has lifted into central North Carolina...pushing 
northeastward as of this writing. Guidance indicates this area of showers 
will dissipate as it pushes into drier...more stable air. Have 
included vcsh at kecg and ksby for passing brief showers. Expect 
little visibility reduction in showers. Overcast deck remains 8-12k feet 
above ground level. A lower deck of 4-6k feet above ground level is lifting into NE NC in 
association with the area of showers. As an upper level 
disturbance lifts into the region...expect the area of showers to 
focus more in NE NC and southeast Virginia. Best chance for precipitation still 
resides at kecg...but have also included vcsh korf. Little 
confidence farther north of seeing precipitation. Showers push offshore 
this afternoon. The middle-level deck is expected to break up late 
today/this evening. Guidance now indicating IFR conditions 
overnight due to fog/stratus...but with high pressure remaining 
over the region and potential cloud cover will hold off on 
mentioning in tafs. 


High pressure prevails through the end of the week. Only isolated 
to widely scattered showers/thunderstorms are possible across the 
region each afternoon. Dewpoints warm into the upper 60s to around 
70...resulting in patchy early morning ground fog. 


&& 


Marine... 
weak high pressure remains over the local waters early this 
morning...with a coastal boundary located along the southeast coast. The 
result is southwesterly winds of 10-15 knots. Few gusts of 20 knots observed northern 
coastal waters. Seas have dropped to 2-3 feet with waves 1-2 feet. 
Coastal boundary remains along the southeast coast today...with a few 
showers possible southern waters. S-SW winds 5-15 knots persist today. High 
pressure prevails over the region through the end of the week. Winds 
generally SW-west at or below 15 knots. Seas generally 2 feet and waves 1-2 feet. High 
pressure weakens over the region Friday...as another area of high 
pressure builds southward over New England. Flow becomes northeasterly...with 
medium range guidance differing on potential Small Craft Advisory conditions during 
the upcoming weekend.
