NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
139 am EDT Friday Sep 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
a weak trough of low pressure will persist over the local area 
overnight with high pressure centered over the Ohio Valley. Stronger 
high pressure then slowly drops down from the northeast states 
Friday afternoon through the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am this morning/... 
weak surface trough persists across the region this evening...with light 
northwest flow aloft. Airmass remains slightly unstable as of 02z...evidenced 
by some modest ml convective available potential energy per Storm Prediction Center mesoanalysis and isolated/widely 
scattered thunderstorms continuing over northern Virginia and portions of the 
Piedmont. Have extended 20-30% probability of precipitation over the far north and in the 
Piedmont through 1 am. Otherwise...warm/humid under variably 
cloudy skies with temperatures mainly in the 70s. Overnight lows will 
range from the upper 60s in rural areas of interior Virginia/Maryland to the 
lower 70s elsewhere. Patchy fog developing in some areas...though 
with dew points this high rarely see dense fog development and 
expect most areas to maintain visibility of 2sm or greater overnight. 


&& 


Short term /6 am this morning through Sunday/... 
anomalous upper ridge builds over the NE Continental U.S. During the short 
term. A weakness under the ridge locates over the -se 
states...resulting in weak flow aloft. Large scale confluence over 
eastern Canada and New England will allow strong surface high pressure to 
build southward into New England...pushing a backdoor front into the region 
Friday mrng-aftn. Surface winds turn to the NE Friday...resulting in the 
beginnings of a cool down. A warm/moist and moderately unstable 
air mass (sref MLCAPE values 1000-1500 j/kg) will remain ovvr the 
forecast area in advance of the front. More stable along the coast due to 
onshore flow. Have maintained slight chance to chance probability of precipitation east and 
central...but have continued west/ solid chance (40-50%) over the Piedmont 
as weak short wave drops over the region. Vrb clouds- partly cloudy conds west/ hi 
temperatures from the M-u80s in vicinity of Eastern Shore/along the CST to the u80s-around 
90f inland. 


The weather from Friday night through sun looking more unsettled than before. 
Periods of low level clouds expected into sun west/ continued east-northeast winds. Gusts up to 
25 miles per hour near the CST lt Friday night. Models today are less emphatic about drier 
air mass pushing south-southwest into/across the forecast area this weekend. Combo hi pressure to 
the north-northeast and low pressure over southeast Continental U.S. To keep moist onshore winds and 
likelihood of weak impulses tracking across the forecast area from the east. Will have 
20-40% probability of precipitation Sat-sun...highest in southeast Virginia/NE NC. Continued breezy (gusts 
to 25-30 miles per hour near the CST in eastern Virginia/NE nc) on Sat...less wind expected 
sun. Hi temperatures Sat from the M-u70s near the CST to around 80f inland. Low 
temperatures Sat night from the m60s to around 70f. Hi temperatures sun from the u70s to 
l80s. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
long term period starts off Sun night and Monday with surface low pressure 
spinning off the Carolina CST with hi pressure north and west of the forecast area. 
Resultant onshore flow will lead to temperatures only making it into the 
middle 80s Monday under a prtly-mostly sky. With the moist onshore flow 
did hold onto some slight chance-chance probability of precipitation over much of the forecast area 
sun ngt/Mon. Kept thunder out due to a lack of instability. The 
surface low weakens and starts sliding east Tuesday allowing for drier conds 
and temperatures rebounding into the middle/upper 80s under a prtly cloudy 
sky. Dry weather continues midweek with temperatures further increasing as southerly 
flow develops ahead of the next cold front...with hi temperatures in the 
upper 80s to near 90 Wednesday and Thursday. The front will cross the area 
sometime late Thursday or Friday. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Friday through Tuesday/... 
areas of MVFR fog/haze expected early this morning...with a chance 
for brief IFR visibilities at kphf and kecg between 09z-12z. Otw...VFR 
conditions to continue today outside of isolated to widely scattered afternoon 
convection...mainly along and west of Interstate 95. 


Outlook...periods of sub VFR conditions will occur in areas of 
showers and in early morning fog/stratus Saturday through Monday 
with onshore flow. In addition...gusty winds are expected along 
the coast on Saturday. 


&& 


Marine... 
Small Craft Advisory headlines have been issued with this forecast package for the 
Ocean/Bay/lwr James. For tonight...weak trough of low pressure over the waters 
will lead to vrb winds under 10 knots. NE flow then develops Friday as a 
backdoor cold front drops twrds the region and hi pressure overspreads 
the NE states. Winds will slowly increase through the day over all 
waters...to 15-20 knots over the Bay/ocean by the eveng hours and lower 
James by Erly overnight. At the same time...waves over the Lower Bay 
will increase to 4 feet with seas over coastal waters up to 6 feet. The Small Craft Advisory 
will run through the end of the 4th period for now (sat aftn) but 
may have to be extended further out in time especially over coastal 
waters with seas at or above 5 feet likely continuing into Sat ngt/sun. In 
addition...the onshore flow and hi waves will enhance the rip 
current threat for the Holiday weekend. Guidance continues to build tides 
to 1 foot above normal by Sat...close to minor flooding thresholds 
in some locations. 


Winds/waves/seas decrease into Erly next week as the surface hi 
weakens and flow becomes more out of the east than NE. Winds then turn 
to the S midweek ahead of the next cold front.
