NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
400 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Synopsis... 
a weak cool front drops into the area tonight and settles 
near the Virginia North Carolina border Wednesday. High pressure 
returns Wednesday night and Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Wednesday morning/... 
latest upper level analysis features middle/upper ridging remaining 
in place over the southeast Continental U.S.. to the west, shortwave trough over the 
Ohio Valley and Great Lakes...and will continue to allow for pulse 
convection centered in the Ohio Valley for the balance of this 
afternoon, as it and its associated cold front approach the local 
area through tonight. 


Meanwhile, high pressure remains over the western Atlantic into the 
southeast states with a weak surface trough along the coastal plain. SW 
flow/strong warm air advection have brought hot temperatures this afternoon into the 
middle-upper 90s inland with low 90s along the coastlines. Afternoon 
dewpoints have mixed back into the low to middle 60s...which have 
served to keep heat indices in the 98-103 f range aside from less 
reliable AWOS locations. As previously referenced, a few daily 
record high temperatures have been achieved this afternoon. Please see 
climate section below for the latest information. 


As far as convective opportunities...despite strong surface based 
instability, model soundings show much of the area to be well- 
capped above cumulus bases in association with downslope flow/warming 
aloft. Thus, have kept only isolated T wording in the grids for the 
balance of the afternoon. Best rain chances hold off until around and 
after sunset. Very warm/moist and unstable airmass in place in 
advance of the weakening front will result in only isolated to 
widely scattered showers/thunderstorms. While precipitable waters  prognosticated 
around 1.8 inches...westerly flow, lack of upper level support/ 
forcing for ascent will limit overall coverage at iso-sct. Could 
see some patchy fog in the wake of the front across the Piedmont, 
but held out mention for now. Mild and muggy once again...with 
lows in the low to middle 70s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Wednesday morning through Friday/... 
front washes out just south of the area Wed, as upper flow 
becomes quasi-zonal and downslope/westerly flow aloft prevails. 
Meanwhile, surface high pressure builds over the region on Wednesday as weak 
surface trough remains over the southeastern portion of the local area. Given 
continued warm/moist and marginally unstable air mass...will 
maintain slight chance-low end chance probability of precipitation Wed/Thu...centered 
mainly along the trough axis and Theta-E ridge over the southern local 
area. Will see a lower rain chance on Friday with no discernible 
convective trigger. However, will stick with a slight pop given 
plenty of low level moisture and diurnal instability. 


Highs remain nearly +1 Standard dev through the short term period, 
generally around 90 degree inland and slightly cooler along the 
immediate coast. Mild overnight lows generally in the upper 60s 
to lower 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
long term period will feature a return to wetter conditions and 
lower temperatures as an upper-level trough and surface cold front approach the middle 
Atlantic. For Friday night/Sat morng...with the front still west of the 
area expect dry conditions with increasing cloudiness and light S/SW 
flow. Rain chances will increase through the afternoon and evening hours Sat as 
the front near the area. Probability of precipitation range from 50% northwest to 20% far southeast. Low temperatures 
Friday night in the upper 60s to lower 70s with hi temperatures Sat in the upper 80s 
to lower 90s. 


For sun...increased probability of precipitation to 50-60% as the front sags into southern VA/NC. 
A (lwr) chance of rain will continue through early next week with the 
front near the Carolina CST and waves of low pressure passing along the 
front. As for temperatures...expect highs only in the upper 70s to middle 80s sun 
and Monday with the chance of rain and cloud cover...and lows in the 
middle 60s to lower 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
VFR conds prevailing west/ few-scattered cumulus (bases mainly 5-7kft) across 
forecast area...along west/ south-southwest winds at or below 10 knots. No convection as of early this 
afternoon...hwvr...FM about 00-06z/03 as the front pushes into the 
region...coverage expected to be scattered so still too much uncertainty to 
include rain showers or thunderstorms and rain in tafs at this point. 


Mainly dry/VFR conditions Wednesday-Friday as surface front washes out across 
NC...although an isolated late afternoon/evening shower or thunderstorm still 
possible for far southern Virginia/NE NC. There may be a higher 
probability for showers/thunderstorms and reduced visibilities and ceilings by Sat as 
next front moves into the area and stalls. 


&& 


Marine... 
sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions will continue this week and into the weekend. Hi 
pressure remains offshore this evening with a Lee trough over the middle 
Atlantic...leading to southerly winds avgg 10-15 knots over the 
Bay/rivers/sound and 15-20 knots over coastal waters. Expect 1-2 feet waves over 
the Bay and 2-3 feet seas over coastal waters. A weakening front drops into 
the area late tonight into Wednesday morng...veering winds from SW to north. Not 
anticipating any headlines at this time due to a lack of cold air advection/surge Post 
frontal and a weak pressure gradient. Hi pressure returns Wednesday night through Friday 
as sub-Small Craft Advisory conditions continue. Winds shift from north midday Wednesday to the 
east/southeast Wednesday night. Winds generally should be east-southeast to S Thursday into Friday at 10-15 
knots or less...eventually shifting to the south-southwest Friday ngt/Sat. Next front 
moves into the middle Atlantic region over the weekend. 


&& 


Climate...

Ric: 100/1980 (new record established: 101 f as of 142 PM edt)
