NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
208 am EDT Sat Apr 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will shift offshore through tonight...ahead of low 
pressure approaching from the plains states. A warm front lifts 
into the Carolinas on Saturday as the system approaches from the 
west tomorrow through tomorrow night...before pushing offshore 
Sunday. High pressure slowly rebuilds over the area from the west 
early next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am this morning/... 
surface high pressure is in place from the Ohio Valley to the 
Carolina coast. Aloft...upper level low continues to drift east-NE 
over Atlantic Canada. Meanwhile to the west...upper level ridging 
over the MS valley continues to push east as an upper level 
disturbance lifts out of the Desert Southwest. 


Tonight...aforementioned upper system over The Rockies will spin 
up a surface low over the Central Plains this evening, which will 
swing east into the middle Missouri Valley late tonight. The 
associated warm front lifts across the middle-south and southeast 
late tonight as a piece of the surface high pushes offshore of the 
southeast coast. The upper low will shift upper ridge east... 
becoming oriented from the Ohio Valley into the southeast 
overnight. Resultant middle level flow switches around to the west-SW with 
precipitable water values increasing gradually overnight. Middle to high clouds will 
increase and thicken across the Virginia Piedmont after midnight. 
Overall...not as cold with lows in the upper 30s over the Eastern 
Shore to low-middle 40s south/southwest zones. 


&& 


Short term /6 am this morning through Monday/... 
associated surface low will push east through the day on Saturday, as 
increasing/amplifying west-SW flow over the southeast Continental U.S. Lifts the 
sharpening warm frontal boundary NE across the western Carolinas 
through the day. Surface high offshore ridges back inland, briefly 
setting up a narrow corridor of weak insitu cad wedging over the 
Piedmont, which will be strengthened by the first slug of light 
overrunning moisture falling into cool/dry airmass Saturday 
morning. While little more than some scattered light rain showers are 
expected early Sat, cool and increasingly cloudy conditions are 
likely, with more widespread rain chances by afternoon. Influx of 
best isentropic lift brings a period of light to occasionally 
moderate rainfall late Sat aftn/night. Southern stream energy lifting 
from the Gulf states Sat night will likely develop a wave of low 
pressure along the lifting warm front to the south as the original 
low weakens over the Ohio Valley. A coastal low strengthens along 
the front...with chances for patchy light rain continuing into 
Sunday morning before best chances transition to the coast (ern 
Virginia/NE nc) Sun afternoon. However, with relatively shallow 
isentropic lift available, expect quantitative precipitation forecast to be on the order of a 
couple of tenths or less during this timeframe. Quantitative precipitation forecast for the 
weekend between a half and three-quarters of an inch, highest 
south-southeast. 


Rather stagnant pattern persists Sunday night through early next 
week with deep upper level low pressure anchored over eastern New 
England. Models continue to linger the upper low nearly in place, 
if not sliding south along the middle-Atlantic coast through midweek 
as weak upper ridging runs up against the northeast upper low. 
Models remain in good agreement with rotating a couple of 
shortwaves through around the base of the upper low on Mon, with 
little more than continued cloudy and cool conditions Sunday night 
and Monday (highest cloud cover northeast, partly sunny southwest). 


For temps, cool/damp/cloudy conditions will result in highs in 
the middle-upper 50s (roughly -1 to -1.5 Standard dev) Sat, with 
temperatures dropping off at onset of steadier precipitation Sat afternoon. Lows 
in the middle 40s to low 50s Sat night. Highs Sunday remain cool in 
cloudy and showery conditions...mainly upper 50s to near 60, 
though slight cooler low to middle 50s across the north. Early 
morning lows Sunday night mainly in the 40s, with highs Monday 
warming into the 60s. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
as upper ridging over the western Continental U.S. Shifts NE from the northern rockies 
to the northern plains later Tue/Wed...an upper low will gradually 
weaken/shift off the East Coast. The middle Atlantic region looks to be 
located in-between systems Monday night into early Wednesday with weak surface 
high pressure over the area. Will have dry conditions and partly 
/mostly sunny skies. Remaining cool with highs mainly in the 
60s...perhaps only the upper 50s at the coast. Lows in the 40s. 


Expect increasing SW flow aloft later Wednesday into Thursday...bringing 
overrunning and a chance for precipitation starting later Wednesday and lasting 
into Thursday. GFS/European model (ecmwf) both develop a coastal low by Thursday...although the 
12z European model (ecmwf) is stronger/closer to the coast with the surface low and would 
indicate a soaking rain for southeast Virginia and NE NC. The 12z GFS is more 
progressive and farther offshore and would only indicate minimal 
precipitation chances over the local area. For now...will go with a blend of 
the models and have probability of precipitation in the 30-40% range from later Wednesday through 
Thursday although still some uncertainty in the track/development of the 
surface low. Dry weather is indicated for next Friday into next weekend. 
Highs mainly in the 60s...with lows in the middle 40s to low 50s on 
Thursday. Highs in the 60s to low 70s next Friday. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
VFR conditions will prevail through this morng...as hi pressure weakens 
over the area. But...there will be increasing and thickening hi and 
middle level clouds...as a warm front approaches from the west-southwest. VFR 
conditions will then deteriorate to MVFR and IFR conditions this 
afternoon into tonight...as low pressure approaches from the west...while another 
low moves to the NC CST. This will result in periods of rain 
developing...then continuing tonight into Sun afternoon...as low pressure 
tracks across NC and off the CST. 


Outlook...dry and VFR conditions are expected by sun eveng or 
early Monday which continue through Tuesday. The chance for rain arrives late 
Wednesday or Wednesday night. 


&& 


Marine... 
winds continue to trend downward this afternoon and seas remain 
below 5 feet. Therefore...all sca's will expire as of 4 PM. 


High pressure slowly builds over the waters through tonight. Sub-Small Craft Advisory 
marine conditions prevail tonight through Sat with with weak high 
pressure progressing offshore. A weak surface low develops over the Ohio 
River valley and passes across southern Virginia and offshore Sunday. East-southeast 
winds 10-15 knots Sat night/Sun morning become north-NE Sun afternoon/evening west/ speeds 
increasing to Small Craft Advisory levels as the low moves offshore. Winds diminish 
below Small Craft Advisory levels Sun night...before possibly ramping back up again 
on Monday with low pressure off the New England coast. Waves build 
back to 3-4 feet on the Bay on Sunday...with seas building to 4-6 feet 
on the ocean. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...none. 
Marine...none.
