NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1028 PM EST Thursday Dec 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds into the area from the northwest through 
Friday. Low pressure will track from the Gulf of Mexico eastward 
and off the southeast coast late Friday night into Saturday night. 
High pressure will be over the area again during Sunday. Another 
low pressure area will move northeast out of the Gulf of Mexico 
and up along the coast late Sunday night into Monday night. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Friday morning/... 
latest regional radar mosaic depicts light echoes over the northern 
local area and northern Virginia this evening. However...latest kwal sounding 
depicts a narrow band of moisture from 12-16k feet above ground level. The dry air 
below that level will prevent any precipitation from reaching the ground. 
This in response to a shearing...low amplitude wave crossing the 
region. Based on bufr soundings and latest infrared satellite 
trends...expect cloud cover to stick around through late tonight. 
Wave pushes offshore late tonight into Friday morning...with skies 
clearing through the morning. Surface high pressure will continue to 
extend into the region...resulting in calm-light northerly winds. Bumped 
temperatures down a degree or two...even with cloud cover...in the upper 20s 
to low 30s. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Friday morning through Sunday/... 
models (gfs/NAM/ecmwf) continue to trend farther S with precipitation and 
weak low late Friday night into Sat night...due to northern stream upper trough 
swinging ewrd from the upper Midwest through the Great Lakes. NAM is the 
farthest S and thus the driest model. Hi pressure stretching from 
scntrl/southeast Canada south-southeast into the middle Atlantic will maintain dry weather Friday 
into Friday night. Partly to mostly sunny on Friday with highs ranging from 
the middle 40s to around 50. Mostly clear or partly cloudy Friday 
night...with increasing cloudiness spreading in from the south-southwest. Cold 
again with lows ranging from the middle 20s to lower 30s. 


For Sat into Sat night...will go with a blend of the GFS/European model (ecmwf) with 
low pressure tracking from the Gulf of Mexico ewrd and off the southeast CST. 
Will go with no higher than 30-40% probability of precipitation for extreme southern Virginia and NE NC 
mainly Sat afternoon into early Sat night. Just have slight chance (20%) or no 
precipitation (14%) across northern half of County Warning Area at this time. Any precipitation at the 
onset over western/northwest Piedmont counties could be very light sleet or 
snow. Otherwise...precipitation will be just a cold light rain...and mainly 
over extreme southern Virginia and NE NC. Could be a few flurries mixed in at 
the end early Sat night. Hi temperatures on Sat only in the lower to middle 40s. 
The weak low will be well off the southeast CST late Sat night...with a mostly 
cloudy or partly cloudy sky. Lows Sat night ranging from the upper 20s 
to middle 30s. Hi pressure will be over the area again during sun. Partly 
or mostly sunny with highs in the middle to upper 40s. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
low pressure is expected to develop off off the southeast coast and 
track NE off the middle Atlantic coast Monday into Monday night. Timing 
differences continue amongst 18/12z numerical guidance...and given 
this probability of precipitation will remain capped in the chance category. Probability of precipitation increase to 
20-30% Sunday night...with 40-50% probability of precipitation across the area Monday and 
Monday night. Precipitation type should generally be rain...although there 
could be a brief period of sleet at the onset over the northwest Piedmont 
late Sunday night and early Monday morning. Highs Monday should 
range from the low 40s northwest...to middle 50s southeast...after morning lows in 
the low 30s northwest...to around 40 southeast. Middle-level ridging briefly builds 
into the region Tuesday (bringing milder conditions with highs in 
the low 50s northwest to near 60 se)...before low pressure and a strong 
cold front impact the region Tuesday night into Wednesday. Spatial 
and timing differences continue with the 18/12z GFS tracking the 
surface low west of the mountains...and the 18/12z European model (ecmwf) tracking the 
surface low up the coastal plain. This will have impact on 
temperatures and whether the rain is more stratiform or showery. If 
the farther west 18/12z GFS were to verify there could be a potential 
for thunder. However...even with this solution...surface dewpoints 
at or above 60f remain offshore. Dry and breezy conditions will likely 
prevail by Christmas day. 


&& 


Aviation /04z Friday through Tuesday/... 
scattered-broken middle level clouds will move across the taf sites during the 
overnight hours into early Friday morning. These clouds dissipate by 
late morning. VFR conds will prevail through the 00z taf period. 
Winds will be light generally from a northerly direction. 


Outlook...VFR conds and light winds prevail Friday night. A low 
pressure system tracking well to our south Sat/Sat night may bring 
a period of broken/overcast conditions but ceilings are expected to remain 4-5 
k feet or higher. High pressure builds to the north of the area 
Sunday. A series of low pressure systems and complex frontal 
boundaries will bring chances for rain and periods of low ceilings 
and visibilities beginning Monday. 


&& 


Marine... 
high pressure continues to build in from the northwest tonight into 
Friday. A secondary north-northwest surge arrives late tonight into early 
Friday. Wind speeds over the Bay could briefly reach 20kt...but at 
this time the duration is not expected to be long enough to warrant 
an Small Craft Advisory. High pressure builds north of the region Friday night through 
Sunday...with weak low pressure tracking off the southeast coast 
Saturday. This should result in north-NE flow at or below 15kt through 
Sunday...with 2-3ft seas. Another low pressure system develops off 
the southeast coast Sunday night...and tracks NE off the middle 
Atlantic coast Monday and Monday night. There is little to no cold air advection in 
the wake of this low...so conditions should remain sub-Small Craft Advisory with a 
wind becoming westerly by Tuesday. A potentially stronger low tracks 
west of the mountains Tuesday night...with a strong cold front crossing 
the middle Atlantic coast Wednesday.
