NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
413 am EDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will cross the region early this morning. Cool 
Canadian high pressure builds back over the region tonight and 
Thursday. A series of weak fronts will cross the area Friday into 
the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest weather analysis features surface cold front slowly dropping 
southeast across the Lower Middle-Atlantic this morning. Expect quick 
clearing behind the front through sunrise as winds veer around to 
the NW, and will become gusty later today. 


Modifying Canadian high pressure builds to our northwest today. BUFKIT 
soundings suggest winds in the 15 to 20 miles per hour range, with frequent 
gusts to 35-40 miles per hour on the Eastern Shore and 25-35 miles per hour elsewhere. A 
mainly sunny/clear sky expected, although a few scattered cumulus will 
persist across the Eastern Shore due to cold pool aloft on the back side 
of the shortwave trough. Plenty of sun, drying fuels and gusty 
winds will add up to a potentially critical fire weather day,. 
Have issued a red flag warning for northern half of the area, 
mainly from ric north, with an Special Weather Statement for increased fire danger 
outlooked over southern half of the area. 


For temps, local thickness tools indicate highs only in the lower 
to middle 60s over the local area. However, with dewpoints mixing 
into the upper 20s/low 30s (yielding minimum relative humidity values in the middle 
20s inland) and with downslope flow component, expect maxima 
mainly in the middle to upper 60s inland all zones (not much 
difference at the coast due to strong northwest flow). High pressure 
builds into the region tonight. Expect chilly early morning lows 
Thursday morning in the middle-upper 30s along/west of I-95 to the upper 30s 
to lower 40s elsewhere under a mainly clear sky. Do not expect any 
freeze issues and probably too dry for much more than some patchy 
frost in sheltered locales. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday night/... 
dry again once again Thursday as high pressure slides over the 
northeast/mid-Atlantic region, before sliding off the Atlantic 
Seaboard early Friday. Highs Thursday generally in the upper 60s (a 
little cooler near the coast). Once again, min relative humidity values fall into 
the 20s Thursday afternoon but winds will be lighter. Next fast moving wave 
of moisture moves in from the plains on Friday. GFS remains faster 
with bringing system through, with the NAM/European model (ecmwf) a bit sharper 
with the upper wave...and hence a bit slower. Pushed back onset of 
pop just slightly and continued to split the difference between 
these still divergent solutions. Given this, expect a scenario 
not unlike that of earlier yesterday (tuesday); rather meager 
instability with modest deep layer shear/lapse rates that result 
in some weak disorganized convection late in the day Friday. Will 
keep chance probability of precipitation all zones for scattered rain showers and perhaps a thunderstorm 
pushing through at some point in the aftn/evening. Warmer south-southwest 
flow should push highs well into the 70s to near 8o. 


Clearing behind the front Friday night, with probability of precipitation quickly ending 
west to east. Lows generally in the 50s to near 60 along area 
coastlines. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
progressive flow will begin to evolve into a highly amplified/blocky 
pattern over the Continental U.S. During the extended...likely resulting in a 
cool/wet period by early next week. 


Medium range guidance tends to struggle with blocky flow...and this 
is no exception. Trended toward ensemble and wpc guidance to smooth 
out differences in the models. Overall...upper pattern will be 
characterized by an anomalous upper trough over the western Continental U.S....high 
pressure ridging from the Gulf states into the northwest territories 
and another upper trough over southeast Canada and New England. While 
meaningful differences exist in the models...a second (dry) cold 
front is prognosticated to cross the local area on Sat. This front will 
bring cooler/drier air to the region on sun. A stationary boundary 
will then set up over the middle-Atlantic region (depending on the 
model it could be from the Carolinas northward to the Mason Dixon line). 
This boundary will be the focus of precipitation early next week. 
Meanwhile...a broad area of low pressure over the plains will 
progress eastward sun-tues...tapping into Gulf moisture. Will maintain 
slight chance probability of precipitation Sun night-Tuesday based on uncertainty...but 
increase to low-end chance probability of precipitation Tuesday night as the upper/surface low gets 
closer. 


Have trended to the cooler side of guidance with highs generally in 
the middle-upper 60s sun-tues. Overnight lows generally in the upper 
40s-low 50s. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
a surface cold front is draped across the area from the southern New Jersey coast 
into the NC Piedmont region early this morning. Winds quickly turn 
to the northwest behind the front and become gusty due to a decent surge 
of cold air flowing in from the northwest. Wind speeds should average 
about 34015g25kt during this initial push of colder air. As the 
front exits the coast shortly after sunrise this morning...the 
pressure gradient will tighten up near the immediate coast where 
west-northwest-northwest winds should average close to 20g30kt from middle morning 
through late afternoon/early evening before tapering off during the 
evening and overnight hours. Northwest wind speeds briefly increase Thursday 
morning and then drop off through the afternoon as high pressure slides 
across the area and becomes located off the southeast coast by Thursday 
evening. The next cold front approaches the region Thursday night... 
causing northwest winds to back around to the S-se. The front is expected 
to cross the middle Atlantic region Friday aftn/evening...bringing 
showers and a slight chance for thunderstorms to area taf sites. 
Behind this front...winds will generally be northerly around 15 knots or 
less through the rest of the weekend. 


&& 


Marine... 
a surface cold front is just starting to track across the waters from 
northwest to southeast early this morning. The front is expected to clear the 
coast by sunrise. Just behind the front...strong Small Craft Advisory winds will 
occur due to a decent surge of cold air flowing in from the northwest. As 
a result...northwest winds will average 20-25 knots with gusts to around 
30 knots early this morning and continuing through most of today 
before tapering off tonight. The northwest wind direction will generally 
prevent seas from building any higher than 5-6 feet...with 3-4 feet 
waves on the Bay (locally up to 5 feet southern Bay around sunrise with 
the initial push of cold air) and 2-3 feet near the mouth of the 
rivers. A secondary...albeit weaker...cold air surge is expected 
to occur tonight. This will keep northwest winds on the Bay/ocean to stay 
around 20-25 knots overnight...with gusts up to 30 knots northern coastal 
waters. Small Craft Advisory flags are currently in effect for area waters. Please 
refer to www.Weather.Gov/Wakefield or mwwakq for further details. 


Conditions gradually improve on Thursday as high pressure builds over 
the waters. Northwest wind speeds and seas are anticipated to fall below 
Small Craft Advisory thresholds by Thursday afternoon (aob 15 knots ches Bay/at or below 25 knots and seas 
below 5 ft)...however overall conditions will still be somewhat 
breezy during the day before finally diminishing by early Thursday 
evening. High pressure slides off the southeast coast Thursday night as 
another cold front approaches the waters. This will cause northwest winds 
to back around to the S-se. The front is expected to cross the 
waters Friday evening...bringing showers and a slight chance for 
thunderstorms to the area. Behind this front...winds will 
generally be northerly around 15 knots or less through the rest of the 
weekend and waves/seas will average 1-2 feet/2-3 feet respectively. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
given the expected dry and breezy conditions later today...and 
in coordination with state fire officials/neighboring forecast 
offices, a red flag warning has been issued for this 
afternoon/evening for portions of central and eastern Virginia (mainly 
along and north of ric metropolitan area, as well as the lower Maryland Easter 
shore. Winds are expected to be the strongest this afternoon (20-25 miles per hour 
with gusts to 35-40 mph) along and north of a line from fvx-ptb- 
lfi...and this is essentially the warning area. Farther 
south...winds will not be as strong (10-20 miles per hour with gusts to 30 
mph)...so have opted to issue an Special Weather Statement for increased fire danger 
over these areas to highlight drying fuels. 


Dry conditions (min relative humidity values 20-25%) will occur again on 
Thursday. However...winds are not expected to be as strong. This 
will likely preclude the need for any fire weather watches/warnings 
over our area...except for the lower Maryland Eastern Shore where winds 
may remain elevated. However, anyone planning/involved in outdoor 
burning activities should continue to exercise caution. Will 
therefore mention continued dry conditions for tomorrow in the 
hwo/fwf.
