NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
400 am EDT Friday Apr 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will slowly push off to the Canadian Maritimes this 
morning...maintaining a cool northeast flow across the local 
area. A slow moving low pressure system will move from the Gulf of 
Mexico today...to off the southeast coast on Saturday. This will 
bring a chance for rain to portions of the area later tonight and 
Saturday. High pressure builds south from eastern Canada Saturday 
night and Sunday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
latest surface analysis indicates a ~1044mb high over the Canadian 
Maritimes...with a ridge axis extending SW into the middle Atlantic 
region...although pressure falls are occurring so the surface ridge is 
weakening. Low pressure is developing over the Gulf of Mexico in 
response to an upper trough digging across the Southern Plains. 
Low cloudiness is affecting some of the local area...but is 
somewhat variable and difficult to monitor on satellite due to 
increasing high cloudiness from the SW associated west/ the Gulf low. 


For today...expect variably cloudy skies through midday...models 
suggest some of the low cloudiness dissipated later this 
morning...but middle/high clouds will slowly thicken and lower from 
the W/SW. No real chance for precipitation today due to deep dry layer 
between 900 mb and 500 mb...but overall skies should trend mostly 
cloudy all areas by middle afternoon Onward. Continued onshore east/NE flow 
will persist today and keep highs well below average once again. 
A blend of mav/met guidance looks reasonable given a modifying/warming 
airmass being offset by more clouds than past 2 days. Highs will 
generally range from the middle 50s to around 60 f...except locally in 
the upper 40s to lower 50s on the immediate coast and Eastern Shore. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Sunday/... 
the southern portion of the aforementioned upper level trough will 
form a cutoff low over the Gulf Coast states tonight (will remain 
unable-phased with northern stream). This in turn will produce a surface low 
that will move from the Gulf of Mexico to off the Georgia/South 
Carolina coast on Sat. The GFS has been farther north with the 
low and its associated precipitation than other models while the NAM keeps 
precipitation confined to NE NC. Latest Euro is preferred solution...is 
slightly closer to NAM but does indicate enough overrunning 
moisture making it into far southern Virginia and NE NC overnight 
through midday Sat to support high chance to likely probability of precipitation in these 
areas. Generally kept areas north of a ric to wal dry for the event 
but with mostly cloudy skies through most of Sat. Went closer to 
cooler mav numbers for highs Sat...mid/upper 60s far northwest...to upper 
50s/around 60 f in far S/southeast Virginia and NE NC. 


Saturday night and Sunday will have high pressure building back into 
the area from the north with a cold front pushing south. 


Temperatures climb to the middle to upper 60s over inland areas on 
Sunday. Readings hold in the upper 50s to lower 60s toward the 
coast. Lows generally run in the 40s Saturday and Sunday. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
an area of high pressure is expected to extend into the middle Atlantic 
region from southeast Canada Sun night into Monday before sliding off 
the coast Monday night. Meanwhile...a coastal low is anticipated to 
reside well southeast of the middle Atlantic coast during this time. As 
the surface high slides off the coast Monday night...a relatively flat 
(west to east oriented) frontal boundary sags down toward the area Monday 
night and is expected to cross the middle Atlantic region on Tuesday/Tuesday 
night...moving offshore by Wednesday morning. Weak shortwave energy and a 
subsequent surface low traveling along this boundary may bring another 
shot of precipitation to the area during this timeframe. GFS model 
data continues to be fast but is starting to come into better 
alignment with the European model (ecmwf) solution. 


Lows Sun night will be near normal with temperatures in the 40s (lower 50s 
possible immediate southeast Virginia/NE NC coasts). As the flat frontal boundary 
starts to sag into the Middle Atlantic States Monday through Wednesday...the 
temperature forecast becomes tricky in regard to where exactly the warm 
sector develops. Overall...expect a warming trend through next week. 
Highs will be at to slightly above normal with temperatures in the 
70s (mid-upper 60s possible at the immediate coast). Low 
temperatures should run about 5-10 degrees above normal with 
readings in the 50s each night next week. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Friday through Tuesday/... 
hi pressure centered over the Canadian Maritimes and a trough of low pressure off 
the southeast CST will continue to maintain NE or east winds through today. This 
will result in MVFR ceilings over the eastern taf sites of sby/phf/orf/ecg 
through midday today. These lower clouds and moisture will mix out this 
afternoon...but more middle and hi level clouds will increase from the south-southwest 
later today and tonight...in advance of low pressure moving out of the Gulf 
of Mexico north-northeast into southern Georgia/northern Florida. Some showers could spread into 
ecg by Sat morng. 


&& 


Marine... 
Small Craft Advisory flags have been cancelled for northern ches Bay. Winds are averaging 
10 to 15 knots which is below Small Craft Advisory wind speed criteria. Small Craft Advisory flags remain 
in effect for southern ches Bay...Currituck Sound and all coastal 
waters. Small Craft Advisory for all coastal waters was extended through Sat 
evening due to seas remaining at or above 5 feet due to prolonged 
onshore winds during this time. Seas may even stay above 5 feet 
through early next week as hi pressure slides across New England and 
into the Canadian Maritimes tonight through Friday...maintaining NE 
winds over the waters. Friday night through Monday...low pressure will track across 
Florida...then east-northeast well off the middle Atlantic CST as hi pressure moves from 
the northern Great Lakes eastward across New England and off the CST. This 
scenario will maintain generally north or NE winds 10 to 15 knots across 
the waters Friday night through Monday. The potential exists for Small Craft Advisory winds to 
occur Sat night into sun due to a quick shot of cooler air passing 
over the northern half of the region. Will monitor throughout the 
weekend.
