NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1002 am EST Friday Dec 19 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds into the area from the northwest today into 
tonight. Weak low pressure will track from the Gulf of Mexico 
eastward and off the southeast coast late tonight through Saturday 
night. High pressure will be over the area again during Sunday. 
Another low pressure area moves northeast out of the Gulf of 
Mexico and up along the coast late Sunday night through Monday 
night. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest surface analysis depicts ~993 mb low pressure over the Canadian 
Maritimes with broad ~1027 mb hi pressure centered over the Midwest 
and into the middle Atlantic/southeast states. Generally clear skies over the akq 
forecast area this morning...but broken/overcast conditions persist over 
northern Virginia and some of this has rotated southeast and will affect the 
Northern Neck/Eastern Shore through early afternoon. As the high spreads east 
this afternoon should see the clouds across the NE erode. Main update was 
to increase cloud cover over the NE through 18z (mostly cloudy)...while 
remainder of the County Warning Area will be sunny to mostly sunny. Mixing area 
soundings to around 925 mb supports highs ranging from the upper 
40s/around 50 f over interior NE NC and south central Virginia...to the 
lower to middle 40s on the Eastern Shore. 


Dry weather continues tonight with a middle-level short wave trough approaching the 
area. The middle Atlantic remains influenced by surface hi pressure centered 
over the Ohio Valley. Expect light northwest winds...a partly cloudy sky...and 
low temperatures mainly in the upper 20s to lower 30s (temps expected to fall 
rapidly and then become nearly steady late in the evening as clouds 
slowly increase). 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday/... 
weekend forecast continues to trend drier. Surface low pressure slides east 
from the gom Sat...with just a weak surface reflection of the low showing 
off the southeast CST Sat night. 00z guidance keeps the northern advancement of 
precipitation Sat near the NC/Virginia border on average. Have capped probability of precipitation at 
20-30%...and only S of I-64. Could be some snow/pl mixed in over the 
southern Piedmont but primarily expecting rain. Any precipitation ends everywhere 
by late Sat afternoon. Dry conds then for Sat night and sun as hi pressure 
centered over the NE states stretches down into the middle Atlantic. 
Temperatures over the weekend will be below normal...with highs mainly in 
the 40s. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
forecast updated to raise probability of precipitation through the period (e.G. 60% Monday and 
Tuesday night/wed) as confidence for precipitation as increased. 


Previous discussion... 
low pressure is expected to develop off off the southeast coast and 
track NE off the middle Atlantic coast Monday into Monday night. Timing 
differences continue amongst 18/12z numerical guidance...and given 
this probability of precipitation will remain capped in the chance category. Probability of precipitation increase to 
20-30% Sunday night...with 40-50% probability of precipitation across the area Monday and 
Monday night. Precipitation type should generally be rain...although there 
could be a brief period of sleet at the onset over the northwest Piedmont 
late Sunday night and early Monday morning. Highs Monday should 
range from the low 40s northwest...to middle 50s southeast...after morning lows in 
the low 30s northwest...to around 40 southeast. Middle-level ridging briefly builds 
into the region Tuesday (bringing milder conditions with highs in 
the low 50s northwest to near 60 se)...before low pressure and a strong 
cold front impact the region Tuesday night into Wednesday. Spatial 
and timing differences continue with the 18/12z GFS tracking the 
surface low west of the mountains...and the 18/12z European model (ecmwf) tracking the 
surface low up the coastal plain. This will have impact on 
temperatures and whether the rain is more stratiform or showery. If 
the farther west 18/12z GFS were to verify there could be a potential 
for thunder. However...even with this solution...surface dewpoints 
at or above 60f remain offshore. Dry and breezy conditions will likely 
prevail by Christmas day. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Friday through Tuesday/... 
middle level clouds will move east of forecast area next few hours. Otw...only scattered 
clouds expeceted through forecast prd as high prs builds into the area from 
the west. North winds a0b 10 kts. 


Outlook...low pressure tracks well to our south Sat/Sat night. This 
may bring a period of broken/overcast conditions but ceilings are expected to 
remain 4-5 k feet or higher. High pressure builds to the north of 
the area Sunday. A series of low pressure systems and complex 
frontal boundaries will bring chances for rain and periods of low 
ceilings and visibilities beginning Monday. 


&& 


Marine... 
surge behind departing short wave should remain below Small Craft Advisory levels this morning 
although a gust or two to 20 kts across the Bay not out of the qstn 
through noon. High pressure then builds into the area through 
Saturday keeping a nearly flow going at or below 15 kts. 


Low pressure develops off the southeast coast Sunday night...then tracks NE 
off the middle Atlantic coast Monday & Monday night. There is little to no 
cold air advection in the wake of this low...so conditions should remain sub-Small Craft Advisory 
with a wind becoming westerly by Tuesday. A stronger low tracks west of the 
mountains Tuesday night...with a strong cold front crossing the middle 
Atlantic coast Wednesday morning. 


&& 


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