NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
959 am EST Friday Nov 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds from the Ohio Valley into the middle Atlantic 
region this afternoon...settling overhead tonight and Saturday. 
The high then slides offshore Saturday night. A warm front lifts 
north through the region on Sunday...before a trailing cold front 
crosses the Middle Atlantic States early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
surface high pressure builds from the Ohio Valley into the middle 
Atlantic region this afternoon. Breezy north-northwest winds this morng...will 
diminish during the afternoon...as the center of the hi builds closer to 
the region. Cooler air sinking to the surface in an increasingly more 
stable airmass will make it difficult for temperatures to warm more than 
the upper 30s to middle 40s...despite a sunny Sky. High pressure 
settles overhead tonight...and will promote excellent radiational 
cooling conditions. Expect temperatures to bottom out in the 20s 
(near 30 at far southeast Virginia/NE NC beaches). 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday night/... 
surface high pressure slowly slides off the coast on Saturday and then 
completely offshore Saturday night. As the ridge axis shifts east 
of the coastline...warm air advection processes and a return to 
southerly winds will result in a gradual warm-up under mostly sunny 
skies. Expect highs in the lower 50s (upper 40s Maryland/Virginia lower 
Eastern Shore and northern neck). Middle-high level clouds increase 
primarily from the southwest Saturday night as Gulf Coast moisture 
gets pulled into the region behind the departing high and ahead of 
an upper level disturbance and associated surface low digging across 
Texas into the arklatex region. Temperatures should fall rapidly 
just after dark Saturday night and then hold steady closer to 
daybreak due to the increasing cloud cover. Expect lows in the 
low-middle 30s most areas (upper 30s immediate coast). A warm front 
extending from this low will lift north and across the middle 
Atlantic region on Sunday as the central pressure lifts north into 
the middle Mississippi Valley/Midwest. Models have uniformly slowed 
the influx of overrunning stratiform precipitation until Sunday 
afternoon...however precipitation tends to come in faster than quantitative precipitation forecast depictions. 
Have therefore introduced slight chance probability of precipitation coming into far SW 
portion of the forecast area Sunday morning and then overspreading likely 
probability of precipitation from SW to chance probability of precipitation NE during Sunday afternoon. Precipitable waters  increase 
to around 1.5 inches and model soundings also depict a deeply 
saturated column. This means that locally heavy rainfall will be 
possible...especially Sunday night. Temperatures should warm 
nicely on Sunday with highs in the middle-upper 50s northwest to lower 
60s southeast...possibly a few degrees warmer as the surface pressure 
gradient increases through the day. Little diurnal trend expected 
Sunday night as temperatures only fall about 5 degrees into the 
lower 50s northwest to upper 50s southeast. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
models differ with respect to timing of the cdfrntl passage across the area. 
GFS about 6 hours faster than Euro Monday night. Either way...Monday 
appears to be a warm and breezy day as forecast area becomes warm sectored 
well ahead of cdfrnt. Kept low chance pop going for any shower that 
develops in the warmer airmass. Highs u60s-m70s. Chance probability of precipitation Monday night 
with frontal passage. Lows M-u40s...xcpt 50-55 southeastern coastal areas. 


Kept low chance probability of precipitation across eastern areas Tuesday as a weak short wave moves NE along 
the front as it slowly moves off the coast. Otw...drier and cooler 
air moves in from the west. Highs u50s-l60s. Lows Tuesday night m30s-m40s. 


Highs pressure from the west (pacific origin vs canadian) allows for a 
quiet middle week prd. Dry weather through Turkey day along with a gradual cooling 
trend. Highs Wednesday 50-55. Lows Wednesday night u20s-u30s. Highs Thursday 
u40s-l50s. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Friday through Tuesday/... 
cold front clears the CST early this morning...W/ winds northwest (and gusty to 20 
to 25 kt) into this afternoon. High pressure settles over the middle 
Atlantic region today into Sat...moving well offshore on Sunday. A 
complex weather system is expected to bring periods of rain and 
MVFR/IFR conds lt sun into Monday morning. 


&& 


Marine... 
cold front clears the waters early this morning. Low level cold air advection continuing into this 
afternoon west/ gusty northwest winds to 25 knots or so. Speeds begin to wane this 
afternoon...continue into tonight. Will have scas continue into this afternoon. 


High pressure settles over the middle Atlantic region today into Sat... 
moving well offshore on Sunday. Next chance for sca's will come late 
sun into Monday as srly winds increases ahead of next system approaching from 
the SW. 


Tide anomalies continuing to average around 1/2 foot below normal into sun. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories...
