NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
204 PM EDT sun Sep 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure moves northward off the middle Atlantic coast this morning. 
A cold front sweeps through the region tonight and Monday morning. 
High pressure covers the region Tuesday through the end of the 
week...with dry and cooler conditions in place. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
middle morning update...surface low off the NE NC coast at 1430z...and 
moving fairly quickly northeastward. Precipitation quickly diminshing and moving 
offshore as low and associated upper short wave begin moving away 
from the area. Inland...skies are mostly sunny...and have made few 
changes there. Along the coast...clouds will take a while to 
clear...and have thus dropped maximum temperatures a few degrees across NE 
NC...eastern Virginia and our Delaware-Maryland-Virginia County Warning Area. Rest of forecast from late 
afternoon through tonight remains unchanged from early morning 
forecast. 


Early morning discussion...latest msas analysis shows 1006 mb surface 
low lifting northward off the NC coast. Meanwhile...weak high 
pressure extends from the New England coast into the Piedmont of 
VA/NC. Rain associated with the coastal low continues to fall 
across eastern NC and far southeastern Virginia this morning. However...the 
overall coverage/intensity has begun to wane in the past few 
hours. The surface low is expected to move quickly NE off the NC obx 
through the morning. As it does so...expecting precipitation to continue 
across our far southeast zones but in an overall diminishing trend. By 
18z...high res models have the surface low offshore of the 
Delaware-Maryland-Virginia...with any leftover light rain limited to immediate 
coastal locations and offshore. Will slowly lower probability of precipitation through 
midday. Attention then turns to an approaching cold front that 
moves eastward across the Ohio Valley today...before crossing the 
mountains and moving through the local area overnight. Models 
indicate limited forcing and moisture along/ahead of front...so 
widespread precipitation is not expected. Will maintain 20-30% 
probability of precipitation across the Piedmont/I-95 corridor this evening...probably dry 
across eastern areas. Have also included a slight chance for thunderstorms 
this evening...with some marginal instability expected ahead of 
the front. Winds tuning to the west-SW this afternoon coupled with 
increasing sunshine and 850 mb temperatures warming to around +17c will 
result in high temperatures in the middle/upper 80s most places. Lows tonight 
in the upper 50s northwest to near 70 along the southeast coast. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Tuesday/... 
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 comfortable maximum temperatures 75-80 degrees. Did maintain 
slight chance probability of precipitation (20%) across the far southeast in the morning as the 
front clears. 


The coolest night of the fall thus far expected Monday 
night...with many inland areas dropping to between 45 and 50 (mid 
50s to middle 60s near the coast). A sunny and pleasant day is expected 
Tuesday with high pressure in place. Highs in the low to middle 70s 
(perhaps even remaining the 60s at the beaches). 


&& 


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 /18z Sunday through Friday/... 
low pressure was currently well off the southeast Virginia/NE NC CST...and will 
continue to move north-northeast to off the New England CST this afternoon into 
tonight. Expect northwest or west winds 5 to 10 knots this afternoon in between the low 
moving north-northeast and a cold front approaching from the northwest. The cold front 
will then cross the region tonight into early Monday morng...with the 
winds shifting from SW to northwest or north. Just a slight chance for a shower or 
thunderstorm with the front...so have not included in precipitation in the tafs. 
Hi pressure builds north of the region through midweek...as the front stalls 
in the vicinity of the Southeast/Florida CST. Mainly VFR conditions expected 
Monday through Wednesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
low pressure is tracking north-northeast off the Carolina coast early this 
morning. This low will accelerate to the northeast today as it 
tracks well off the middle-Atlantic coast. A north-northeast wind is expected to 
increase this morning from the mouth of the Bay southward as the low 
makes its closest approach. A period of sustained 20-25kt wind is 
possible especially off the Currituck Outer Banks. A cold front then 
approaches from the northwest later this afternoon and crosses the middle 
Atlantic coast late tonight. The wind should diminish this 
afternoon...and then shift to SW late and increase to 10-15kt over 
the Bay/sound rivers and 15-20kt over the ocean this evening. Seas 
should average 5-7ft through the day...before subsiding to 4-5ft 
tonight. Scas for the mouth of the Bay and sound will run through 
17z...and the Small Craft Advisory for the ocean will run through 08z tonight as seas 
should be slow to subside...especially out near 20nm. The wind 
shifts to northwest late tonight into Monday. The initial cold air advection surge late 
tonight/early Monday is expected to be sub-sca. A stronger northerly 
surge is possible late Monday night/early Tuesday...and this could 
bring a period of low-end Small Craft Advisory conditions to the Lower Bay. High 
pressure builds north of the region Tuesday through the end of the week 
as the cold front stalls in vicinity of the southeast coast. This 
will bring a period of prolonged NE flow...which will result in 
elevated seas/waves and likely Small Craft Advisory conditions. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
tides will continue to average ~1.0ft above normal today for all 
areas...and into tonight for the Middle Bay. Predicted high tide 
tonight is higher than afternoon high tide...and when combined 
with the tidal anomaly could nudge water levels at Cambridge/Bishops 
Head slightly above 3.0ft MLLW and near 3.0ft MLLW at Lewisetta. 
These values would fall just short of minor thresholds. Tidal 
departures will increase again by midweek as another period of 
prolonged NE flow is expected to develop. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...moderate rip current risk until 8 PM EDT this evening for 
mdz025. 
NC...beach hazards statement until 8 PM EDT this evening for ncz102. 
Virginia...Beach hazards statement until 8 PM EDT this evening for vaz098.

Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 4 am EDT Monday for anz650-652-654- 
656-658.
