NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
302 am EDT Friday Jul 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front crosses the area this tonight. High pressure returns 
Friday into Saturday. A weak cold front crosses the area Saturday 
night...before high pressure returns to start next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am this morning/... 
warm temperatures aloft...weak middle level lapse rates and a lack of any 
appreciable forcing has resulted in only isolated to widely 
scattered showers/thunderstorms late this evening. This despite an 
anomalously moist and unstable air mass over the local area. 
Dewpoints still hovering in the 70s...but relief is in site as 
dewpoints have dropped into the 50s and 60s in western Virginia. The 
dewpoint boundary/weak cold front will continue to approach the 
region this evening...crossing the region through the overnight 
hours. While shear is nearly non-existent...will maintain 30-40 
probability of precipitation across the local area as the cold front/dew point boundary 
navigates the warm...humid and unstable air mass. Sky begins to 
clear west to east Post frontal...with a mostly clear sky expected 
inland late tonight. Front locates along the coast late 
tonight...with 20-30 probability of precipitation remaining across the coastal plain. Low 
temperatures will range from the middle 60s northwest to the low to middle 70s along 
the coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am this morning through Sunday/... 
Friday is looking dry for all but the far southeast parts of the forecast area as 
high pressure arrives behind the departing front. The humidity 
will be lower as well. Have 20% probability of precipitation far southeast...closest to the 
stalling frontal boundary. Highs in the upper 80s to low 
90s...except middle 80s coast. 


Friday night and Saturday... 
high pressure will remain over the area for dry weather and a mostly 
clear to partly cloudy sky. Humidity levels start to increase 
a little on Sat. Lows Friday night in the 60s to lower 70s. Highs on 
Sat in the low 90s...except middle 80s coast. 


Saturday night and Sunday... 
a weak cold front is now shown to move across the area Saturday 
night. What remains to be seen is whether or not it can muster up 
enough moisture to produce a few showers as is passes. For 
now...have left the forecast dry as models not all the convinced 
that it will. Mainly clear to partly cloudy with lows in the middle 60s to 
low 70s. Remaining dry most places on Sunday as high pressure 
rebounds. There's a small (20%) chance of isolated showers across the 
far southeast with a weak coastal boundary still in place. Highs Sunday 
in the upper 80s to low 90s...except middle 80s coast. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
pattern begins with a middle/upper level ridge centered over the SW 
Continental U.S. And an upper level low near Hudson Bay Canada. GFS/European model (ecmwf) 
are in good agreement with this overall setup into Tuesday...but then 
diverge quite a bit Wed/Thu...the operational GFS being much 
stronger/pushing farther south with the upper trough than the 
European model (ecmwf) (or the GFS ensemble means). Typical summertime temperatures 
can be expected Monday with highs mainly ranging from the middle 
80s/around 90 f along the coast to the lower 90s inland. Generally 
looks dry although will maintain a 20-30% pop in NE NC due to 
potential seabreeze. For Tue-Wed...fairly confident in hot weather for 
Tuesday...as both models have rising 800 mb temperatures and a west/SW flow in low 
levels. Will maintain a 20% pop due mainly to a weak cap with 500 mb 
heights only 585-588 dm. Highs mainly in the middle 90s inland and 
90-95 f at the coast. Less confidence for Wed/Thu...GFS would 
suggest much cooler conds...while the European model (ecmwf) would support highs in 
the middle 90s to perhaps 100 f. While the European model (ecmwf)/wpc pattern will 
generally be favored (cold front to our north until Thursday aftn)...think 
the drier/hotter weather will ultimately not be as hot as predicted due 
to antecedent wet/humid conditions of the past month. For now will 
show a slight cooling with highs Wednesday 90-95 f and Thursday upper 80s to 
lower 90s. Dew points are forecast by models to mix out into the low 
60s west of I-95 through the period...generally stayed a little higher 
than this...middle 60s west to lower 70s east. For now this yields heat 
indices staying below 105 f next week. As for probability of precipitation...will only 
have ~20% probability of precipitation Wednesday...rising to 30% most areas Thursday west/ the approach 
of the cold front from the north. 


&& 


Aviation /07z Friday through Tuesday/... 
as of 07z...a broken line of showers and embedded thunderstorms have 
re-developed along and ahead cold frontal passage, and will move 
across peninsula from phf toward orf over the next few hours. Visibility 
restrictions are short lived, but we are noting periods of MVFR 
with heavier showers...and have accounted for this short lived 
ceiling restriction in the taf. Front will continue to push 
southeast...through phf/orf by 08-10z and ecg by ~12z. MOS has 
MVFR visibilities at sby throughout overnight, clearing by around/just 
after dawn and with hi res models in agreement, have gone in this 
direction with the taf. North/northwest winds develop behind the cold front 
west/ a mostly clear sky to prevail through the taf period and into 
tonight. 


Outlook...dry weather prevails Saturday. A slight chance of thunderstorms is in 
the forecast Sunday through Tuesday...especially southeastern portions. 


&& 


Marine... 
latest observation reflect southeast flow across the waters this afternoon...shifting 
to the S/SW and to average ~15 knots this evening. Winds turn to the north-northwest 
after midnight through Friday morning. Not anticipating a strong 
cool surge on Friday but will not take much to get ~15 knots winds Friday 
morning with surface water temperatures at or above 80 f over the Bay/rivers 
(staying just below Small Craft Advisory thresholds for now but would not be 
surprised to see a few hours with gusts to 20 knots Friday morning). 
Expect waves in the Bay 2-3 feet this evening drop off to 1-2 feet after 
midnight then increase back to 2-3 feet Friday morning before diminishing 
Friday afternoon. Seas average 3-4 feet north and 2-3 feet S. Winds shift to the north-northeast 
midday Friday...becoming east by late in the day/Friday evening. Winds then 
turn back to the south-southwest for Friday night and Sat...as the front weakens 
just to our south-southeast along the Carolina coast. A weak front now prognosticated 
to cross the area Sat night/early sun...before turning back to the 
south late sun into next week as surface high pressure becomes 
anchored over the western Atlantic. Waves Sat into next week average 
1-2 feet in the Bay with seas 2-4 feet. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
southerly channeling has resulted in some nuisance-type tidal anomalies 
on the order of a half to three quarters of a foot above normal at 
Bishops Head/Cambridge. Water levels look to approach, but still fall 
short of minor flood thresholds with astronomically higher tide 
cycle late tonight. Falling Water levels thereafter as flow turns 
northerly into Friday morning. Anomalies may rise again late Sat/Sat 
night in S flow up the Bay ahead of another weak cold front. 


&& 


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