NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
428 am EDT Monday Sep 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front moves offshore this morning...followed by the return 
of high pressure for later today through Tuesday night. A coastal 
low pressure system will bring a chance of showers back to the 
region for middle to late week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
a cold front is sweeping across the region early this morning and 
should make its way offshore by 12z. The only shower activity to 
note along/ahead of the front is across coastal NE NC and this 
activity should diminish/move offshore before sunrise. Will maintain 
low end chance probability of precipitation (30%) there through 10z. Will carry minimal probability of precipitation 
(20%) across far southeastern zones from 10z-16z as the last bit of energy 
associated with the front exits. Otw...clouds will be on the 
decrease through the day from northwest to southeast. Cooler temperatures are expected 
today behind the front with highs in the middle to upper 70s. 


High pressure building in from the Ohio Valley tonight will promote 
dry conditions. However...some increase in middle/high level moisture 
is expected across southeastern areas later tonight which will help clouds 
thicken overnight. Mainly clear northwest and north. Still setting up to be a 
cool night west...with inland areas (west of I-95) dropping to 
between 45 and 50 degrees (mid 50s to middle 60s near the coast). 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Wednesday/... 
the models are still favoring a dry day Tuesday with the center of 
high pressure building into PA and New England...ridging down into 
the mid-Atlantic. Meanwhile...a weak cut-off upper low develops over 
the southeast. This low will push additional middle/high level 
moisture into the region on Tuesday so that the sky may turn out 
mostly cloudy across southeastern areas...partly to mostly sunny north. Highs 
in the low 70s (perhaps even remaining the 60s at the beaches). 


Model spread starts to Widen Tuesday night and especially 
Wednesday with regards to how they handle the evolution of the cut- 
off low. HPC favors the European model (ecmwf)/European model (ecmwf) ens mean...and cannot argue 
with that at this time. That solution favors the cut-off low lingering 
over the southeastern U.S. Tuesday night and Wednesday with a coastal 
front/inverted trough developing across the eastern Carolinas. 
Will bring a slight chance of rain into our far southeastern zones late 
Tuesday night...with and increase to solid chance probability of precipitation across NE NC 
and far southeast Virginia on Wednesday. For now...will keep the forecast dry 
north of a line from fvx to lfi to Cape Charles. Turning out 
cloudy/mostly cloudy all areas by Wednesday. Lows Tuesday night 
upper 40s west to the low 60s at the coast. Highs Wednesday in the 
low 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
the middle to late week period is now looking somewhat wetter with 
the 00z model cycle. Followed close to HPC guidance and brought a 
chance of rain associated with the coastal front/inverted trough 
into much of the area Wednesday night/Thursday. The European model (ecmwf) lingers 
a slight chance of rain into Friday as what's left of the weak 
cut-off low lifts north along The Spine of the Appalachians. By 
the weekend...am expecting high pressure over the Great Lakes to 
expand south and east...resulting in mainly dry conditions. Highs 
in the low/middle 70s Thursday/Friday...warming into the upper 70s to 
around 80 this weekend. Lows in the 50s and 60s. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Monday through Friday/... 
a cold front will sweep across the region early this morning. The 
frontal passage will be mainly dry...with only a slight chance of a 
brief -shra at ecg and orf. A SW wind of 8-12kt will shift to northwest 
then north behind the front this morning...and become locally gusty up 
to 20kt at sby through the afternoon. High pressure builds in from 
the northwest tonight into Tuesday as the cold front stalls along the 
southeast coast. Low pressure forms along the front and attempts 
to nudge northward Wednesday into Thursday. This will bring the 
potential for occasional rain along with reduced visibility and low ceilings. 
A modestly strong NE wind is also expected...especially along the 
coast. 


&& 


Marine... 
a cold front is in the process of moving across the middle-Atlantic 
coast this morning. A SW wind will shift to northwest behind the front. 
Wind speeds should average ~15kt through the morning...although 
occasional gusts to 20kt are expected in the immediate wake of the 
front...but the duration should not be sufficient to support an Small Craft Advisory 
over any of the non-ocean zones. Earlier scas S of Parramore Island 
have been cancelled as seas have fell below 5ft. An Small Craft Advisory remains in 
effect north of Parramore Island to account for the frontal passage. 
However...seas have fell below 5ft at buoy 44009 and are struggling 
to recover. 


High pressure steadily builds in from the northwest today and tonight as 
the cold front drops southward toward the southeast coast. A shallow 
northerly cold air advection surge is expected tonight. A period of low-end Small Craft Advisory 
conditions are possible over the Bay late tonight/early Tuesday. 
However...confidence is not high enough to issue an Small Craft Advisory and the 
forecast remains capped at 15kt. High pressure continues to build 
across New England Tuesday night through Thursday. Meanwhile...low 
pressure develops along the old frontal boundary and nudges 
northward along the coast. The pressure gradient tightens 
particularly Wednesday/Wednesday night bringing a 20-25kt NE wind to 
the ocean/mouth of the Bay/sound...and 15-20kt elsewhere. Seas are 
expected to build Wednesday into Wednesday night potentially 
reaching 8-10ft out near 20 nm...and 5-6ft nearshore. Small Craft Advisory conditions 
are expected to develop by Wednesday. However...at this time it is 
too early to raise an Small Craft Advisory flag. NE flow continues through the end of 
the week...and seas will likely be slow to subside. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
a period of persist NE flow is expected to develop Tuesday night and 
strengthen Wednesday into Wednesday night as high pressure remains 
anchored over New England...and low pressure develops off the 
Carolina coast. Current estofs guidance suggests tidal departures of 
1-1.5ft above normal are possible by Wednesday night into Thursday. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...moderate rip current risk through this evening for mdz025. 
NC...moderate rip current risk through this evening for ncz102. 
Virginia...moderate rip current risk through this evening for vaz098>100. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 1 PM EDT this afternoon for anz650. 
Small Craft Advisory until 10 am EDT this morning for anz652.
