NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1009 PM EST Monday Feb 8 2016 


Synopsis... 
an area of low pressure develops directly over the middle Atlantic 
region tonight and tracks east-northeast and deepens well off the 
Delaware-Maryland-Virginia coast on Tuesday as as an upper level trough swings 
through the region Tuesday afternoon and evening. High pressure 
slowly returns Wednesday through Friday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Tuesday morning/... 
update...latest model guidance indicates that colder air will be 
slow to move into the region overnight...especially falling 
dewpoints. Have adjusted temperatures/dewpoints accordingly. With 
minimal lift through the dendritic growth zone...wet bulb zero 
heights staying above the surface...and all temperatures (t/TD/tw) staying 
above freezing overnight (except for eastern Piedmont until a few 
hours before sunrise)...expect precipitation type to remain all rain this 
evening. Rain may mix with sleet at times along the back edge of 
main precipitation swath...from the eastern Piedmont to Caroline County to 
the Maryland lower Eastern Shore...however little to no accumulations 
are expected and impacts to travel are not anticipated. 


Previous discussion (356 pm)...clouds have been on the increase 
across the region this afternoon as a potent upper low digs south 
approaching the area. The first round of mostly light rain was 
pushing into far SW area of forecast area...slowly moving northeast toward 
central Virginia. Expect precipitation coverage to increase through 03z as 
forcing increases from a passing cold front. Models are in good 
agreement pushing the precipitation across the County Warning Area through 09z. The 
system will be somewhat moisture-starved so quantitative precipitation forecast amounts will average 
0.10" or less. Lows around 32-35 inland with middle-upper 30s closer 
to the coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Tuesday morning through Wednesday/... 
first shortwave exits to the NE Tuesday morning with primarily with a 
mix of rain at Maryland/Virginia Eastern Shore and Northern Neck...and a rain/sleet mix 
west of Richmond (light snow showers far western Fluvanna/Louisa 
counties). There will still be a lull in precipitation Tuesday after 
daybreak for most of the region before the next shortwave dives southeast 
across the area Tuesday aftn/evening. This might allow for some 
partial sunshine through the day (mix of clouds/sun)...allowing 
temperatures to rise to between 40-45 degrees. Probability of precipitation return to likely 
once again across the the northern half of the forecast area Tuesday aftn/evening... 
this time colder air is prognosticated to overspread the County Warning Area...especially 
by 21z. Not a long-lived event...but potential for 1-2" of snow 
exists across mainly areas to the NE of metropolitan Richmond where better 
lift is expected...especially the Northern Neck and Eastern Shore. 
Lesser accumulations <1" possible elsewhere (generally little to 
no accumulation for southern Virginia and NE nc). Partial clearing after 
midnight with diminishing chances for precipitation. Lows m20s west to 
lower 30s along the coast. If a Winter Weather Advisory is needed... 
it would most likely be for the Maryland lower Eastern Shore and perhaps 
the Northern Neck. Have held off on issuing a Winter Weather Advisory 
for now due to lack of confidence in one inch of snow...but if it 
does occur it would be during times of the Tuesday afternoon and 
evening commute. 


A deep upper level trough prevails across the eastern Continental U.S. On Wednesday as 
a strong ridge persists along the West Coast. Overall...should 
have drier air in place across the region with decent subsidence 
present in the wake of the exiting shortwave located well to the 
northeast. Steep lapse rates still present due to the cold pool 
aloft so expect partly sunny/variably cloudy conditions. Kept 
20 percent probability of precipitation for snow showers across northestern areas through the 
morning hours. Otw...pt sunny and cold. Highs u30s north to l40s 
south. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Monday/... 
an upper level low pressure system will head northeast and away 
from the eastern Continental U.S. Wednesday into Thursday...only to be 
replaced by a strong upper level trough late Friday into the 
coming weekend. Precipitation chances will be limited through the period... 
although a round of snow showers is possible on Friday with an 
Arctic frontal passage. Bay/ocean effect snow showers along the 
coast will be possible Saturday and Sunday as very cold air aloft 
(-20 to -25 850 mb temps) settle in. Although a low confidence 
forecast at this time...there are some indications that low pressure 
develops along the Carolina coast Friday/Friday night which could 
provide additional moisture for the Arctic front to work with. If 
this ends up being the case...then accumulating snow would be 
possible across a portion of the area late in the week. Of more 
significance at this time is the very cold air settling over the region by 
the weekend. Highs in the 30s Thursday- Sat...but then only 20s to 
maybe low 30s Sunday. Lows temperatures in the teens and 20s...with 
single digits Saturday night. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
cold front associated with low pressure over the Great Lakes 
region will swing across the Middle-Atlantic States tonight and is 
expected to produce some rain showers as it moves through the 
area. Ceilings should drop to MVFR levels with the front. The 
boundary layer will be warm enough that snow will not be an 
issue. The front should clear the coast between 6z and 9z. 
Initially behind the front...there should be a brief period of 
clearing before the colder air aloft moves into the area Tuesday 
morning. When the colder air arrives...expect some low to middle 
level cumulus to form. Most areas should remain VFR. However...sby 
could see the lower clouds linger especially if the low level flow 
remains more easterly and keeps the low level moisture in place 
longer. 


Outlook...Tuesday night through Thursday...a strong shortwave 
trough rotating across the Middle-Atlantic States on Tuesday evening 
could produce some MVFR to IFR conditions with snow showers. 
Ric/sby have the best chance to see impacts. The chances for 
impacts from this wave are less from the Virginia Tidewater and areas to 
the south. VFR conditions should prevail Wednesday into Thursday 
as strong high pressure builds into the middle-Atlantic region. 


&& 


Marine... 
low pressure continues to move well out to sea. Seas will be slow 
to subside until later tonight and Tuesday. Still seeing 4-6 feet 
waves at the mouth of the ches Bay early this evening due to high 
seas offshore...so have Small Craft Advisory through 4 am there. Sca's for all 
coastal waters remain in effect through at least Wednesday morning as it 
will take until then to drop below 5 feet. Another round of Small Craft Advisory 
conditions appear likely late Wednesday and Thursday...as strong northwest winds are 
expected. Gale conditions may be possible by the weekend as some 
very cold air settles over the marine area. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
river flood warnings remain in effect for the Blackwater above 
Franklin and Nottoway at Sebrell. See flsakq for details. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
a high surf advisory remains in effect along the entire atl coast 
through 6 am Tuesday morning as nearshore waves remain high (8-12ft). 
Have extended the coastal Flood Advisory for the entire atl coast 
and the Bay Side of the Virginia Eastern Shore through Tuesday morning's 
high tide cycle as waters levels are expected to reach minor 
flooding thresholds. A coastal flood statement is in effect across 
the west side of lower ches Bay and the lower James River for this 
evening's high tide cycle as water levels are expected to come 
close to minor flooding thresholds. This may also be the case 
again Tuesday morning for the same locations...but will let next 
shift evaluate the need for another statement or advisory. Farther 
north...minor flooding is possible along the Bay Side of the lower 
Maryland Eastern Shore on Tuesday...especially at Bishops Head. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...high surf advisory until 6 am EST Tuesday for mdz025. 
Coastal Flood Advisory until 10 am EST Tuesday for mdz025.
