NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
415 am EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will drift off the coast today...ahead of a dry cold 
front...which will drop across the area tonight through early 
Sunday. High pressure builds back over the area late Sunday through 
the middle of next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest weather analysis features 1020+mb surface high pressure over the 
west-central Gulf Coast/Tennessee Valley. To the north, a quick moving 
area of low pressure continues to push across Ontario/northern 
Great Lakes, with the associated surface cool front now extending SW 
into the upper Midwest and middle Missouri Valley. 


A pleasant fall afternoon on the way today as surface high pressure nudges into 
the region from the southwest...eventually shifting offshore 
tonight. Model cross sections indicate a dry vertical column along 
with a west-northwest downsloping flow. This should allow for plenty of 
sunshine today with seasonably mild highs in the upper 60s to low 
70s. 


Dry cold front pushes into the area this evening...with little 
more than some scattered clouds with the frontal passage. A bit milder tonight 
with lows generally middle to upper 40s. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Tuesday/... 


Low pressure over southeast Canada will drop across New England early 
Sunday, before pushing northeast into Atlantic Canada by Sunday 
night. Meanwhile, high pressure will continue to build east from 
the Ohio/Tennessee Valley...shunting surface front south into the Carolinas 
Sunday afternoon. High pressure builds over the area Sunday night and 
Monday, before shifting offshore Tuesday. Expect ample sunshine 
each day. Downslope wind will help to boost highs between 70-75 both 
days. Lows Sun night mainly in the 40s except u30s western most areas to 
l50s southeastern beach areas. Highs Monday in the low to middle 70s, with 
highs in the upper 70s to around 80 on Tuesday after lows mainly 
in the 50s early Tuesday morning. 


One additional note...well mixed atmosphere and compressed pressure 
gradient will result in a breezy day on Sunday. This along with relative humidity 
falling <30% will result in conditions that approach critical 
thresholds. See fire weather section below for more details. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Friday/... 
mild/warm to start in extended then trending cooler by the end. Hi 
pressure surface-aloft remains in vicinity of southeast and mdatlc csts Monday night through Tuesday 
before shifting east allowing broad trough (aloft) to settle from the 
Great Lakes to the eastern states. Cold front will approach from the west-northwest 
Wednesday...then push across the forecast area Wednesday night into Thursday afternoon. West/ the fnt...expecting 
periods of cloudiness and (right now) a low chance pop (for shras). Ahead of the 
fnt...mild/warm southwesterly flow and skc-pcldy...then vrb clouds from lt Wednesday 
into Friday as air turns cooler (on return of north-northwest wnds). 


Hi temperatures Tuesday ranging through the 70s (maybe l80s over interior 
sections)...then l/m70s Wednesday...and mainly in the 60s Thu/Fri. Low temperatures 
in the 50s in the l/m50s Monday night...M/u50s Tuesday night...l/m50s Wednesday 
night...then m40s to l50s Thursday night. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
high pressure over the southeastern US continues to build 
northward into the Middle Atlantic States tonight...providing VFR 
conditions across the region. There is some high level moisture 
producing some cirrus due to an upper level trough...but it will 
not impact aviation. With area of high pressure in place through 
00z sun...expect the VFR condition to prevail through the taf 
period. But with the high sliding east of the region toward the 
end of the period...will see the wind direction switch to SW Sat 
afternoon. 


Outlook: a dry cold front makes its way across the eastern US by 
Sunday morning. VFR conds continue to persist Sat through early next 
week as high pressure builds over the region. 


&& 


Marine... 
a brief diurnal surge in northwest-north winds (10-15kt) is occurring as of 4am 
and should persist through at least 7-8am this morning. 
Otherwise...high pressure falls apart as it crosses the waters 
today. Northwest winds this morning will back to the west by this afternoon with 
speeds at or below 15kt all waters. Seas/waves will average 2-4ft/2-3ft 
respectively. A weak trough passage will occur this evening... 
followed by a weak cold frontal passage late tonight into Sun 
morning. West winds at or below 15kt will persist through the evening and 
then veer to the northwest behind the cold front. Speeds will increase to 
due to low level cold air advection (10-15kt rivers/sound...15-20kt 
with gusts to 25kt ches Bay...15-25kt with gusts to 30kt coastal 
waters Fenwick Island to Virginia/NC border). Seas will be slow to rise 
due to a west-northwest direction but should average 3-4ft from 10-20nm. Up to 
5ft seas will be possible near 20nm from Fenwick Island to 
Chincoteague. Small Craft Advisory flags have been raised for ches Bay and coastal 
waters from Fenwick Island to the Virginia/NC border beginning after 
midnight tonight and persisting through Sunday. Please refer to 
mwwakq for exact timing. High pressure settles over the waters on 
Monday and then slides eastward off the coast Monday night through 
Wednesday. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
will be highlighting dry conditions in the fire weather forecast. 
Mixed layer deep temperatures prognosticated into the l-m30s by 18z Sunday will 
yield relative humidity values ~30%. This in tandem with gusty northwest winds between 
15-25 miles per hour and dry fuels after dry frontal passage. If present forecast 
thinking verifies, an enhanced Fire Danger Statement may be 
needed if the 10 hour fuel moistures drop below 10%. 


&&

Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none.
