NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
941 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
an upper level low pressure system will swing across southern New 
England and off the coast tonight into Wednesday night...pushing a 
weak cold front through the local area. High pressure builds into 
the middle Atlantic region on Thursday...then another cold front 
approaches from the west Friday. The cold front crosses the region 
Friday night...ushering in much cooler and drier weather for most 
of the upcoming weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Wednesday morning/... 
generally mclr to pcldy conds over the forecast area this evening and this should 
continue into the overnight hours. Upper level low pressure will track across PA 
tonight...pushing its accompanying cold front closer to the forecast area from the north-northwest. 
Expecting any precipitation for that system to be limited to far north-northeast areas of forecast area 
(aft mdngt). Otherwise...another night of St/fog development expected after 
mdngt...though uncertain of amount of coverage...but western and southern 
portions have the greatest likelihood...with a lesser probability farther 
NE (in closer proximity to the upper sys). Low temperatures tonight will range 
from the m50s to l60s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Wednesday morning through Friday/... 
upper level low pressure will continue east across southern England and off the CST into 
Wednesday night...pushing an associated trough surface-aloft through the forecast area 
with broken cloudiness and mainly slight chance probability of precipitation (mainly north-northeast 
portions). After any morning St/fg...vrb clouds to pcldy. Hi temperatures from 
the l/m70s on the eastern shr...to 75 to 80f elsewhere. 


Hi pressure from New England builds southward into the region later Wednesday night 
through Thursday...resulting in another period of east-northeast winds. Models 
continue to suggest that inland locations have a low probability for (isltd) 
Thursday...along with vrb clouds. Mainly prtly cloudy toward the CST. Low 
temperatures Wednesday night will range from the m50s to l60s. Hi temperatures on 
Thursday Manly from the middle 70s to around 80. 


A potent upper level trough and associated surface low pressure/cold front 
(extending S to eastern tx) will be diving east-southeast through the Midwest 
Thursday night. That system will approach the mdatlc region on Friday. Ahead of 
it...south-southeast winds bring incrsg moisture which will result in vrb clouds 
to mcldy conds and possible isolated rain showers. The most widespread precipitation 
associated west/ the approaching cold front expected to remain just west of the forecast area 
through Friday afternoon. Hi temperatures Friday from the M/u70s on the eastern shr to l80s 
across interior portions of southeast Virginia/NE NC. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
a potent upper level trough will become cut off over the northern 
Great Lakes region Friday night/early Saturday before lifting NE 
into southeast Canada on Sunday. Strong jet energy rounding the base of the 
trough/upper low will force a cold front quickly through the region 
Friday night...then offshore Saturday morning. Widespread showers 
are expected Friday night with the frontal passage and will carry high likely 
probability of precipitation. Strong forcing but limited instability ahead of the front may 
trigger an isolated thunderstorm or two Friday evening. With the front 
expected to push off the coast around 12z Sat...shower chances will 
quickly come to and end from west to east by daybreak Saturday. Will 
limit shower chances on Saturday morning to the far eastern areas. 
High pressure returns Saturday night and Sunday for dry weather. The 
aforementioned upper low lingers across southern Canada early next 
week...with another spoke of energy rotating around the base of the 
trough Monday night/Tuesday for a slight chance of showers. Highs 
Saturday 70-75. Cooler Sunday with highs 65-70. Highs Monday/Tuesday 
70-75. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
combo of the light onshore flow and abundant ll moisture will likely 
lead to anthr night of IFR stratus/fog to development...except for kecg/korf 
where winds ~5kt will limit restrictions to mvrf. Stratus/fog will 
dissipate/lift west to east Wednesday morning ahead of apprchg cold front 
prognosticated for later in the day. 


Outlook...dry weather is expeceted through Friday but will need to consider areas 
of fog or stratus around sunrise each morning. 


&& 


Marine... 
latest observation reflect light NE winds at or below 10kt across the waters this 
afternoon. A low pressure system will move east across PA 
tonight...then NE along the New England coast Wednesday...before pushing 
well off the coast on Thursday. Winds through Thursday will remain out 
of the north or NE at or below 15kt. Seas will increase to 3-4 feet late 
tonight/early Wednesday...highest over offshore waters. Guidance builds 
seas to around 5 feet offshore by Wednesday night and Thursday. Have held 
off with Small Craft Advisory flags for the moment with conditions still appearing 
marginal at this time. Winds veer around to the S-SW Friday into early 
Saturday ahead of a strong cold front...which crosses into the area 
early Saturday...with winds quickly swinging around to the northwest 
Post-front Saturday afternoon. Winds and seas diminish Sunday into Sunday 
evening. A period of Small Craft Advisory conditions may be possible late Friday into 
Saturday.

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