NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
323 am EDT sun may 24 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure moves off the middle Atlantic coast through 
tonight...then becomes nearly stationary through midweek. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest weather analysis features ~1030mb surface high pressure centered 
over the middle-Atlantic Seaboard this morning. Aloft, a slow moving 
upper low will continue to lift NE from the northern/central 
rockies toward the High Plains... with an amplifying upper level 
ridge building east downstream from the southeast into the middle- 
Atlantic region. 


Surface high will slowly drift farther east today, with low level S-southeast flow 
allowing for a modest warm-up today with slightly higher 
dewpoints. Probability of precipitation remain near none underneath the upper ridge. Look 
for high temperatures to range from around 70/lower 70s over the 
Atlantic Coastal Plain on the Eastern Shore...middle to upper 70s southeast 
coast...and low to middle 80s inland under a sunny to mostly sunny 
sky. 


Benign weather continues tonight with surface high aligned just offshore. 
Light S flow will bring another cool night, though not as cool as 
temperatures we're seeing this morning. Early morning lows in the 
u50s-m60s. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Tuesday night/... 
models remain in good agreement for Memorial Day through midweek. 
Surface high becomes anchored off the middle Atlantic coast through the 
period...and subsidence beneath the upper ridge keeps airmass dry 
despite increasing precipitable water / deep temperatures. Look for a continued mostly 
clear/sunny sky with a gradual warming trend through the period. 
Highs Monday l-m80s. Highs Tuesday 85-90. Cooler at the beaches each 
day. Early morning lows settling into the middle to upper 60s. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Saturday/... 
long term period will be characterized by above normal temperatures each 
day and typical diurnal chances for rain showers/thunderstorms across northwest areas. Hi 
temperatures will average from the middle 80s to near 90 with low temperatures in the middle to 
upper 60s each day...about 10 degrees above normal. An upper-level ridge 
will slowly break down through the period as waves of low pressure pass 
mainly northwest of the local area. Probability of precipitation will be 20-30% each afternoon/eveng for 
all areas except southeast Virginia/NE NC...with no reason to go higher at this 
point due to weak forcing and upper-level ridging. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Sunday through Thursday/... 
surface high pressure off the eastern Seaboard and middle/upper level 
ridging over the southeast and Middle Atlantic States will be the dominant 
weather feature through at least early Wednesday. VFR conditions 
will prevail during the next 24 hours under mostly clear skies. 
Winds will generally be southeast-S around 10kt or less...with a brief 
uptick in wind speeds during peak heating/afternoon mixing. As 
middle/upper ridge axis shifts east of the middle Atlantic region late 
Monday afternoon...expect winds to become more southerly and incrementally more 
breezy each afternoon/early evening Monday and Tuesday. Ridging begins to 
break down on Wednesday and an influx of moisture/energy from a remnant 
western trough will bring a chance for showers and thunderstorms. 


&& 


Marine... 
surface high pressure off the eastern Seaboard and middle/upper level 
ridging over the southeast and Middle Atlantic States will be the dominant 
weather feature through at least early Wednesday. Winds will 
primarily be from the southeast-S at speeds at or below 15kt. Gusts may reach 
around 20kt during the afternoon/early evening and again around 
daybreak each day due to diurnal influences. Otherwise...the 
waters will be relatively quiet. Waves will average 1-2ft. Seas 
will average 2-3ft (periodically up to 4ft in northern coastal waters 
Monday night through thu). 


&& 


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