NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
400 PM EDT Sat Aug 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds over the southeastern states through early 
next week...resulting in an increase of heat and humidity through 
the middle of the upcoming week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Sunday morning/... 
latest weather analysis features a weakening frontal boundary/surface 
trough just south of the local area. High pressure at the surface and 
aloft just offshore is bringing a moist S-southeast flow across the local 
area. Held on to a low pop for some isolated rain showers along the 
front and just north mainly from along the Virginia/NC border towards 
the sounds. Any convection will be pulse and disorganized in 
nature. Rain showers fade with loss of heating tonight. Will likely see 
some low stratus redevelop late...otherwise partly cloudy, muggy 
and mild with lows in the middle to upper 60s to around 70 at the 
coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Sunday morning through Tuesday/... 
upper level ridging will persist along the southeast coast...as 
a shortwave will slide from the Tennessee Valley into the northeast through 
the day. Once again, appears that despite a moderately moist/humid 
airmass, lack of appreciable forcing and lack of available 
convective trigger over the local area should keep the day dry for 
most. Trended forecast pop down to ~20%, reflecting only some 
isolated pulse showers/storms in the late aftn/evening. Temperatures will 
continue to edge upwards slightly...with highs Sunday generally in 
the upper 80s to lower 90s and overnight lows around 70 degrees. 


In the wake of the main shortwave, weak upper troughing and 
associated (weak) surface cold front will slowly approach the region 
Monday and Tuesday. The front is expected to become hung up along 
and just north of the local area...with best chances for 
convection similarly remaining oriented just to our 
north/northwest. This is despite precipitable water getting into 
the two inch range over parts of the County Warning Area. However, minor pressure 
falls in the Piedmont would indicate some subtle Lee-side 
troughing Monday and Tuesday aftns...so did maintain a 20-30 pop 
for some additional (diurnally driven) isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms and rain 
each afternoon. For highs, thickness tools continue to run a 
degree or two below MOS guidance, which are well into the middle- 
upper 90s inland. Given climatology and recent analogs, stayed just 
below thickness tool output...yielding highs in the low to middle 90s 
inland...85 to 90 at the coast both Mon/Tue. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Friday/... 
long term period will feature above normal temperatures and occasional 
small chances for rain. For Tuesday ngt/Wed...a weak cold front will drop 
toward the area...bringing a slight chance for a rain showers/thunderstorm despite 
lacking moisture and a weakening front. Temperatures Wednesday will rise into the 
upper 80s to lower 90s under a partly cloudy sky and light winds. 


For the remainder of the week...broad upper-level ridge across the eastern 
Continental U.S. Will keep warm temperatures over the area and most precipitation missing the 
forecast area. Aforementioned surface front washes out over the Carolinas while hi 
pressure builds in the vicinity of the middle Atlantic. Expect a slight chance 
of a rain showers/thunderstorm during the afternoon/evening hours each day. Hi temperatures will be 
in the upper 80s to lower 90s with low temperatures in the middle 60s to lower 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Saturday through Thursday/... 
ceilings have been slow to rise today...with MVFR still occurring 
at kric/korf as of 18z. Satellite imagery indicates scattered to broken cumulus 
most areas...and this should persist through sunset. Winds will 
stay up overnight...and this should mitigate fog 
potential...except at ksby...where all guidance suggests there 
will be less mixing and better chance for fog. However...did not go 
as low as guidance. All terminals expected to become VFR shortly 
after sunrise on Sunday...with VFR expected all day. 


Although region will be in a warm humid airmass for the next few 
days...model guidance suggests precipitation will be scattered/widely 
scattered at best. Next cold front tries to move into the region late 
Tuesday/Tuesday night...with scattered rain showers/thunderstorms possible in 
association with this frontal passage. 


&& 


Marine... 
sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions will continue through at least early next week. Surface 
hi pressure remains offshore tonight with low pressure passing well north of the middle 
Atlantic. Expect southeasterly winds this evening becoming southerly overnight...avgg 10-15 
knots over the Bay/coastal waters and 5-10 knots over the rivers/sound. Waves over 
the Bay will be 1-2 feet with 2-3 feet seas over coastal waters. Similar 
conditions into sun with little change in the pattern. With 
relatively warm waters...could see some winds close to Small Craft Advisory 
thresholds over the Bay both evengs as flow channels up the Bay...for 
now will cap at 15 knots. Sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions continue into early next 
week as hi pressure remains offshore and a cold front slowly approaches 
from the west. Seas average 2-4 feet and waves 1-2 feet. Next cold front prognosticated 
to reach the waters by late Wednesday...but due to a lack of cold air advection/surge 
behind the front not anticipating any headlines at this time. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...moderate rip current risk until 8 PM EDT this evening for 
mdz025. 
NC...moderate rip current risk until 8 PM EDT this evening for 
ncz102. 
Virginia...moderate rip current risk until 8 PM EDT this evening for 
vaz098>100. 
Marine...none.
