NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
401 PM EDT Sat Sep 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure off the southeast coast lifts north along...then 
off...the Atlantic Seaboard tonight through Sunday. A cold front 
sweeps through the region Sunday night and Monday morning...followed 
by high pressure...and cooler and drier conditions...for most of 
next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Sunday/... 
high pressure off the southern New England coast ridges southwestward into 
the region early this afternoon. This is resulting in a very nice 
early fall day across much of the County Warning Area along as west of the 
Chesapeake Bay. Temperatures are at or slightly above seasonal norms. 


Meanwhile...low pressure surface and aloft just off the southeast coast 
is generating considerable clouds across the central/southern Delaware-Maryland-Virginia...southeast 
Virginia and NE NC. A few showers have also moved nwwd from the 
Albemarle Sound into our NE NC counties. These showers have been 
weakening as they move into drier air inland. The low will move NE 
during the next 24 hours...and be east of Delaware-Maryland-Virginia by Sunday 
afternoon. Have sided closed to the 12z GFS with regard to western 
extent of precipitation and significant clouds...as NAM appears too 
aggressive in pushing both clouds and precipitation nwwd. Pop/weather 
forecast similar to previous one...although chance probability of precipitation pushed 
somewhat westward into Delaware-Maryland-Virginia/southeast Virginia and a good part of NE NC. Likely 
probability of precipitation forecast by met guidance seem too high...and have gone closer 
to...but still a bit below...mav guidance. Any precipitation with the 
offshore low will move offshore around or shortly after sunrise 
Sunday...with mainly dry conditions expected thereafter. 


Min temperatures tonight close to or slight above this mornings temperatures 
away from the Bay/ocean...with many areas at or a few degrees 
below 60. Closer to the Bay/ocean...clouds and some precipitation should 
keep temperatures in the 60s. Patchy fog developed last night...and 
expect it again tonight in areas away from the water. 


The warmest day of the next several will be on Sunday...with many 
areas seeing the upper 80s...and all areas expected to make into 
the lower 80s. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday night through Tuesday/... 
a cold front front will approach from the northwest Sunday 
evening. Models indicate limited forcing and moisture along/ahead 
of front...so widespread precipitation not expected. Have 
increased probability of precipitation Sunday evening in the Piedmont area to 30%...mainly 
in deference to nam12 precipitation depiction. Have also included a 
slight chance for thunderstorms Sunday evening...with some marginal 
instability expected ahead of the front. Front will continue 
eastward toward the coast...but any precipitation beyond 04z expected to 
be widely scattered. After the front clears southeastern sections of the 
forecast area by late Monday morning...high pressure builds into the entire 
region with much drier air...and maximum temperatures 75-80 degrees. 


The coolest night of the fall thus far expected Monday 
night...with many inland areas dropping to between 45 and 50. A 
sunny pleasant day expected Tuesday with highs in the low to middle 
70s. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
the long term period will feature generally dry conditions and below 
normal temperatures. Synoptic pattern will remain fairly stagnant through the 
period with surface hi pressure centered in the vicinity of the Ohio Valley/NE 
states and a trough of low pressure located off the middle Atlantic CST. This 
will lead to dry weather over inland areas with an occasional slight chance 
of rain especially near the CST closer to the trough. Tough to 
pinpoint exact timing at this point so will stick to 20% probability of precipitation for 
now. In general 12z GFS keeps any precipitation S of the area while European model (ecmwf) 
brings the precipitation into NE NC/southeast Virginia by Wednesday. Hi temperatures will average in the 
middle to upper 70s while lows will range from the lower 50s to lower 60s over 
most of the area. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Saturday through Thursday/... 
high pressure remains anchored along the New England coast today 
as low pressure develops and moves northward off the southeast 
coast. This will maintain an east-northeast wind...with speeds of 8-20kt 
along the coast...and 5-10kt inland. Conds are generally VFR 
across the County Warning Area but taf sites along the coast...orf/ecg/phf...have 
shown some tempo MVFR ceilings as low level moisture comes in off the 
water. Expect this to be the trend through the afternoon/evening as the 
low gradually moves up the coast. 


There is a slight chance of -shra over coastal southeast Virginia/NE NC today 
into tonight as the low tracks off the coast. A cold front moves 
through the region Sunday night with a slight chance -shra and/or 
-tsra. High pressure builds in behind the cold front and prevails 
Monday through Wednesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
surface hi pressure stretches down the middle Atlantic CST tonight as low pressure 
passes offshore. As far as headlines...Small Craft Advisory over the mouth of the Bay 
will continue through 10 PM due to 4 feet waves. High seas will also 
continue over the coastal waters due to prolonged Erly/nerly fetch. Will 
continue headlines there into tomoro...ending them from north to S through 
the day as flow becomes northerly. A cold front crosses the waters late sun/Erly 
Monday...with conditions expected to stay sub-Small Craft Advisory Post frntal due to a 
weak gradient and cold air advection. Secondary surge and hi pressure building north of the 
area Monday night may bring winds just shy of 20 knots over the Bay...but 
will cap at around 15 knots for now. For Tuesday through the end of the 
week...another prolonged period of NE flow will lead to elevated 
waves and seas and Small Craft Advisory conditions likely.
