NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
218 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Synopsis... 
cool high pressure builds in from the northwest this morning and 
settles over the middle Atlantic and northeast states this afternoon 
through tonight. The high will become centered from New England to 
the Canadian Maritimes Thursday and Friday...maintaining northeast 
flow and much cooler than average temperatures across the region. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
latest analysis showing surface high pressure centered from Michigan south 
into northern Kentucky...and beginning to ridge east of the Appalachians 
early this morning. Winds remain gusty...particularly along the 
coast due to rapid pressure rises and strong cold advection but 
wind speeds have dropped off somewhat over the past few hours. Skies 
have generally cleared except across Hampton Roads and NE NC where broken 
cloud cover persists through middle morning. Perhaps even more 
impressive will be how cold today's highs will be even with ample 
sunshine. Low level thicknesses suggest guidance values of the 
middle-upper 40s at the immediate coast to the lower 50s over 
interior southern Virginia should be about as warm as it will get (this 
is around 20 f below avg). Have included a climate section as this 
may rival record low maximum temperatures at Norfolk. 




High pressure settles over the area later this afternoon into this 
evening and winds will subside. Will likely need another freeze 
warning for portions of the area tonight/Thursday morning. With SW flow 
aloft and the surface high becoming centered over northern New England 
overnight...there will tend to be increasing low level moisture 
and cloud cover from the southeast. BUFKIT soundings show increasing low 
level moisture across southeast Virginia and NE NC overnight so temperatures should 
remain well above freezing there (lows in upper 30s to lower 40s)...with 
a freeze more probable over central and south central Virginia where 
skies generally stay mostly clear and winds decouple. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday/... 
the trend that starts tonight/early Thursday morning looks to continue 
on Thursday. Setup supports a strong inversion above 900 mb which will 
tend to trap any developing marine layer cloudiness. Not much 
chance for measurable precipitation given a very dry airmass above the 
inversion...but do think skies will end up mostly cloudy over most 
of the County Warning Area from I-95 east. This will keep highs well below 
average...mainly in the lower to middle 50s...with upper 50s to around 60 
f over the Piedmont. A deeper layer of moisture from 950 to about 
800 mb will eventually move into all areas Thursday night/Friday as a 
coastal trough continues to push closer to the coast. Will carry a 
slight chance (20%) probability of precipitation Thursday night through Friday. While the overall 
airmass warms quite a bit on Friday...have sided on cooler edge of 
guidance for highs due to clouds and persistent NE flow. Lows 
mainly in the 40s Thursday night with highs Friday generally 55-60 f. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
an area of surface low pressure is expected to develop on a stalled 
boundary off the southeast coast Friday night. The low should track NE 
well off the Carolina coast on Sat. This feature may bring a few 
rain showers to far southeast Virginia/NE NC during this timeframe. 
Meanwhile...an upper level trough over the upper Midwest will swing 
into the eastern Great Lakes Friday night and skirt across northern Virginia on Sat. A 
weak surface low will be associated with this feature and may bring a 
brief round of showers to far northern portions of the forecast area (including the 
Maryland/Virginia eastern shore) Sat afternoon/early evening before moving offshore 
and dissipating. The surface low associated with the Great Lakes trough 
is expected to phase with the aforementioned coastal low Sat 
night...but this should occur over New England and have very little 
impact to the Middle Atlantic States. Surface high pressure builds into the 
region sun...then slides offshore by sun evening as a relatively 
flat (west to east oriented) frontal boundary sags down into the 
area Monday night into Tuesday. Weak shortwave energy and a subsequent surface 
low traveling along this boundary may bring another shot of 
precipitation to the area on Mon/Tue. GFS precipitation-generation and 
general movement is a bit aggressive versus the European model (ecmwf)...therefore 
tried to split the difference with the pop forecast and limited 
coverage to no higher than 40 percent. 


Temperatures are expected to be straight-forward Sat night through 
Sun night as high pressure crosses the region. Expect lows near 
normal both nights in the 40s (lower 50s possible immediate southeast Virginia/NE 
NC coasts). Highs Sat/sun range from roughly 65 degrees far NE to 70 
degrees SW. As the flat frontal boundary starts to sag into the Middle 
Atlantic States Monday through Tuesday...the temperature forecast becomes tricky 
in regard to where exactly the warm sector develops. With precipitation 
expected to approach the area on Monday...increasing cirrus should keep 
high temperatures in the upper 60s west of I-95 with warmer temperatures in the 
lower 70s east of I-95 (mid-upper 60s Maryland/Virginia eastern shore). Highs 
Tuesday should be in the lower 70s inland and in the upper 60s near the 
immediate ches Bay and Atlantic coasts. Low temperatures areawide on 
Monday/Tuesday night should also be warm with readings in the 50s (or about 
10 degrees above normal). 


&& 


Aviation /18z Wednesday through Monday/... 
a mainly clear sky is expected through early Thursday morning. Gusty 
north winds become NE this afternoon and slowly diminish toward 
evening. Winds have tended to be slightly backed from MOS forecasts 
and made adjustments accordingly. NE winds may be gusty once again 
Thursday. Stratocu clouds which could go MVFR develop over southeast 
sections Thursday morning associated with onshore flow. 


Outlook...as high pressure strengthens over New England and the 
Canadian Maritimes...the chances for MVFR conds increase through 
Friday night...especially southeast portions. There will also be a chance 
for showers late Friday and Friday night. A cold front moves through 
early Saturday but the trend toward onshore flow will continue into 
early next week. 


&& 


Marine... 
update...remaining gale warnings have been converted into Small Craft Advisory 
flags through at least early Thursday morning. As high pressure 
slides across New England tonight into Friday...winds turn to the 
NE and result in persistent seas of 5 feet or higher. Another but 
weaker push of cold air is anticipated to occur overnight into 
early Thursday...which will increase winds into Small Craft Advisory thresholds 
during this time. It is likely that Small Craft Advisory conditions due to seas 
above 5 feet will continue beyond early Thursday morning. Will have 
a final decision made regarding headlines by the afternoon forecast 
package (issued by 4 PM today). 


Previous discussion...hi pressure slides NE across New England and 
into the Canadian Maritimes tonight into Friday...as a weak coastal trough 
develops off the southeast and middle Atlantic CST. This will result in a 
prolonged period of NE winds and elevated seas through the end of 
the week.
