NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
156 am EDT Monday Apr 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure slowly builds back into the area from the west 
Monday into Tuesday. The high will slide off the coast on 
Wednesday...with the next low pressure system tracking along the 
southeast coast on Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am this morning/... 
the current analysis indicates surface low pressure well off the 
southeast coast...with the trailing frontal boundary through much 
of SC and northern Georgia. High pressure is centered over central 
Canada...but there has been just enough northwest confluent flow aloft 
that has enabled the surface ridge to extend into the local area. 
This has allowed for clearing across the north...while southern Virginia/NE NC 
remains partly to mostly cloudy. Temperatures this evening average 
in the middle 40s to low 50s. The only minor concern for tonight is 
fog...and this would mainly be across Southside Virginia and interior NE 
NC where dewpoints remain higher. These values remain higher 
however due to persistent cloud cover. Areas to the north that have 
cleared have experienced dewpoints falling into the upper 30s. 
Additionally...the pattern is not really ideal for fog as surface 
high pressure does not build over the region...and some additional 
mixing is possible. Have opted to keep fog out of the gridded 
forecast. Lows tonight range from 40-45f...but some interior 
sections could dip into the upper 30s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am this morning through 6 PM Tuesday/... 
broad upper level low pressure extending from Canadian Maritimes to southeast Great Lakes 
will remain in place through Monday night. Short wave diving southeast through the 
mdatlc states on Monday brings vrb clouds and low probability of precipitation - especially north and east 
locations (alg west/ continued cool conds). Hi temperatures Monday in the l60s NE 
to the middle to perhaps upper 60s elsewhere. Becoming mostly clear Monday 
night...and slightly warmer on Tuesday west/ increased amts of 
sunshine...highs mainly into the middle 60s at the coast to u60s to 
around 70 f inland. Increasing clouds/moisture on Wednesday as surface high 
drifts off the coast...though bulk of deep moisture and probability of precipitation look 
to hold off until late Wednesday...will maintain 20-40% probability of precipitation in the afternoon 
SW...dry NE. Highs into the middle 60s SW to around 70 f elsewhere. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Sunday/... 
the forecast beginning Wednesday night remains weighted 
toward the wpc/European model (ecmwf) solution which brings low pressure up the southeast 
coast Wednesday night...then deepens the low off the obx on Thursday 
before quickly shoving it well out to sea Thursday night. Based on 
this solution...will maintain slight chance probability of precipitation (20%) north and chance 
probability of precipitation (30-50%) across the south Wednesday night. Will expand chance probability of precipitation 
(30-40%) into northern areas on Thursday with high chance to likely 
probability of precipitation (50-60%) across southern areas (highest far se)...before 
dwindling rain chances from west to east Thursday night as the low 
pulls away. The European model (ecmwf) does bring a piece of northern branch energy 
south into the forecast area Thursday night which may actually linger precipitation chances 
into midday Friday. For now...will cover the possibility with slight 
chance probability of precipitation. Dry weather then returns later Friday into next weekend as high 
pressure prevails. Lows generally in the 40s to low 50s through the 
period. Highs mainly in the 60s Thu/Fri...except some upper 50s 
immediate coastal locales. (Normal highs are in the low/middle 70s.) 
Highs then warm into the middle/upper 60s at the coast to middle/upper 70s 
inland by next weekend. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Monday through Friday/... 
expect mainly VFR conditions today into Tuesday morng...as strong low 
pressure spins over the northern Atlantic while hi pressure builds south-southeast into the upper 
Midwest. There may be patchy ground fog early this morng at the 
sites...due to light winds and lingering low level moist. Otherwise...a 
somewhat drier northwest or north flow will filter down over the area. 


Outlook...dry weather and mainly VFR conditions expected Tuesday into Wednesday 
morng. Low pressure moves out of the Gulf of Mexico and NE just off 
the southeast and middle Atlantic csts Tuesday night into Thursday night while intensifying. 
This low may produce precipitation Wednesday night into Thursday night. IFR conditions will 
be possible. 


&& 


Marine... 
high pressure noses into the region tonight through midday Monday 
for relatively light north-northwest winds. Low pressure over New England 
will bring an increase in wind speeds to the local area late 
Monday through Tuesday morning. Small Craft Advisory conditions are expected on all the 
waters during this time. Waves will build to 3-4 feet on the Bay Monday 
night...with seas building to 4-5 feet on the ocean. Conditions 
improve Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday night. Another round of Small Craft Advisory conditions 
is likely for all waters Thursday/Friday as low pressure moves up the 
coast. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory from 7 PM this evening to 10 am EDT 
Tuesday for anz635>638. 
Small Craft Advisory from 4 PM this afternoon to 1 PM EDT 
Tuesday for anz630>632-634.
