NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1020 PM EDT Tuesday Jun 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
cold front approaches the area from the northwest late this 
afternoon into tonight. The front will stall across the region 
Wednesday through Saturday...with low pressure tracking along the 
front later Thursday afternoon into Thursday night. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Wednesday morning/... 
Severe Thunderstorm Watch 378 has expired. However...latest 
regional radar depicts scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms 
across south central Virginia and NE NC...with additional scattered 
showers and thunderstorms moving into the Piedmont. This in 
response to height falls aloft and surface trough dropping over the 
Piedmont. Storm Prediction Center mesoanalysis continues to depict 1000-1500 j/kg 
MLCAPE along with 30-40 knots of effective shear. The result will be 
an isolated threat for damaging winds through 12-2 am. Severe threat 
is not expected to be widespread enough to warrant a new watch. 
Locally heavy rainfall is also possible. 


Probability of precipitation taper off after 1-2 am with partial clearing late 
(especially w). May be a few showers lingering eastern Virginia. Low tonight 
are forecast to range from the upper 60s to middle 70s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Wednesday morning through Friday/... 
the frontal boundary settles immediately north of the region Wednesday 
as shortwave energy exits the NE coast. Overall...there is little 
forcing in deep layer westerly flow. Surface trough also locates along the 
immediate coast. Will retain slight chance probability of precipitation for most of the 
area...with the exception of low end chance probability of precipitation closer to the 
coast where low-level moisture will interact with the surface trough. 
Highs forecast in the upper 80s to low 90s. Partly cloudy and dry 
conditions are expected Wednesday night with lows in the upper 60s to 
low 70s. 


The front sags southward into the region by Thursday. 
Meanwhile...shortwave energy is expected to track into the central 
Appalachians by Thursday afternoon. Shortwave will develop a wave 
of low pressure over eastern NC as another stronger area of low 
pressure associated with a stronger upper wave locates over the 
middle MS valley. 20-30 probability of precipitation Thursday morning increase to 40-50 probability of precipitation 
Thursday afternoon and evening...and continuing through the overnight. 
Precipitable waters  prognosticated to increase to 2+ inches Thursday night in deep layer 
southwesterly flow. Anomalous moisture in concert with shortwave energy 
lifting along the front will result in periods of moderate to 
heavy rainfall Thursday night. Due to the recent rainfall (up to 600 
percent of normal this past week)...minor flooding is possible and has 
been headlined in the severe weather potential statement. 72 hour rainfall totals (including today) 
range from over an inch from the Piedmont into central Virginia to 
three quarters of an inch near the coast. Localized higher amounts 
are expected. Highs Thursday in the middle-upper 80s. Lows Thursday night 
in the middle- upper 60s north to low 70s south. 


Boundary and anomalous moisture remain over the region Friday as the 
aforementioned middle MS valley low approaches from the west. Will 
maintain solid chance probability of precipitation Friday as several waves continue to spread 
over the region. Highs Friday in the low-middle 80s (upper 70s far nw) 
under mostly cloudy-cloudy skies. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
upstream blocking pattern results in little movement of overall 
synoptic features through the Holiday weekend / medium range period. 


Models stall wavy frontal boundary across the middle atlntc region Sat. 
GFS wants to push this boundary into North Carolina sun as weak high 
prs builds into the region from the north while European model (ecmwf) keeps the 
boundary nearly stationary across the region. The boundary prognosticated to lift north 
as a warm front Monday with a trough lingering across the area Tuesday. 
Thus look for chance probability of precipitation each day as timing of any one disturbance 
rather problematic this far out. 


Highs Sat / sun in the M-u80s...85-90 Monday / Tuesday. Lows u60s-m70s. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
VFR conds are expected for the 00z taf period. S/SW winds will 
continue as the cold front will remain northwest of the area. Will need to 
monitor for scattered thunderstorms this evening. Thunderstorms are possible again Wednesday afternoon 
and evening though not as widespread as today. 


Outlook...a frontal systm will linger over the area through 
Sunday. Mainly VFR conds will prevail outside convection. There 
will be chances for afternoon/eveng rain showers/thunderstorms each day with the 
highest chances on Thursday and Friday. 


&& 


Marine... 
will keep current Small Craft Advisory headlines up for the ches Bay tonight as prs 
gradient tightens enough for marginal (15-20 kt) winds. Gradient relaxes 
Wednesday morning keeping a weaker southerly/southwesterly flow (10-15 kt) through Wednesday night 
ahead of an approaching cold front. The front drops into the area from 
the northwest on Thursday...with winds becoming light and variable as the front stalls 
the lifts back north as a warm front Thursday night and Friday. Waves avgg 
1-2 feet and seas avgg 2-4 feet through the weekend. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 4 am EDT Wednesday for anz630>632- 
634.
