NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
826 am EST Monday Dec 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure moves northeast out of the Gulf of Mexico and up along 
the Carolina coast today through Tuesday. A strong cold front will 
cross the area Wednesday night. High pressure returns by Christmas 
day. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
cancelled Freezing Rain Advisory for Cumberland/Prince 
Edward/Goochland (left intact for Fluvanna/louisa). 


Current analysis depicts ~1031 mb surface high pressure centered over 
downeast Maine...ridging SW into the northern middle Atlantic region. 
Meanwhile...a surface trough of low pressure is situated off the 
Carolina coast. Surface dew points are mainly at or above 30 f across the 
County Warning Area with the exception of the far northwest (i.E. Louisa/fluvanna). Dew 
points critical for enough column cooling to lead to freezing rain 
will be limited to those 2 counties...with just plain rain to the 
buffering counties to the southeast...fvx currently 36/31 and at most 
would drop to maybe 33-34 f in heavier precipitation. Expect a cold rain 
to persist through the day temperatures steady in the 30s except in the 
40s closer to the coast. 


This afternoon...low prs tracks NE along the Outer Banks keeping a 
north-NE flow across the forecast area as high prs retreats farther off the New 
England coast. Best lift and Omega shifts slowly to the NE sections of 
the County Warning Area after 18z...with categorical probability of precipitation all areas (but higher 
quantitative precipitation forecast amounts focused east of I-95). Highs will be in the middle 30s northwest to 
around 50 f coastal NE NC. Quantitative precipitation forecast totals average only 0.10 to 0.20" northwest to 
0.50" to 0.75" NE NC. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Wednesday night/... 
this evening...surface low prs prognosticated to track north-northeast just off the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia 
peninsula tonight reaching the southern New Jersey coast by 12z Tuesday. Best sprt for 
widespread precipitation shifts toward the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia. So rain chances continue this evening 
with the highest along the coast. Temperatures steady m30s-l40s. 


Overnight...wdpsrd ll moisture seen in tsctns aftr midnight. So although 
the steady and hvnst rains should end as the push NE...expect areas of light 
rain/drizzle and fog through the night. Temperatures steady m30s-l40s. Total quantitative precipitation forecast 
next 24 hours range between one quarter to one half inch...up to three 
quarters inch across interior NE NC. 


Tuesday...the unsettled pattern continues as low prs is slow to pull NE 
due to a strong south-southwest flow aloft as an amplified upper level trough 
slowly tracks east from the plains states Monday night...through the 
middle Atlantic and southeast states Wednesday night. Low levels remain saturated so 
maintained a chance for rain with areas of drizzle and fog Tuesday. Given 
an overrunning pattern with a low level flow from the E/NE...went 
with the cooler guidance numbers. Highs Tuesday range from the M-u40s along 
and west of I-95 to the M-u50s in southeastern Virginia/NE NC. 


Tuesday night / Wednesday...surface warm front will lift north across the region 
later Tuesday night and will allow for the area to be warm sectored on 
Wednesday. Decent model agreement with ~990 mb surface low tracking north-northeast from 
the Tennessee Valley to the Great Lakes during the day Wednesday. Dew points soar 
into the upper 50s to Lower-Middle 60s in strong southerly flow on 
Wednesday...so will continue mention of slight chance for afternoon/evening thunderstorms 
on Wednesday (christmas eve). At this point there does not look to be much 
in the way of clearing potential (high shear but minimal cape) on 
Wednesday to lead to severe weather. Highs Wednesday into the M-u60s to around 70 f 
(close to record highs). Categorical probability of precipitation all areas Wednesday...shifting 
off the coast later Wednesday evening as the cold front pushes through and 
drier air moves in from the west overnight into Christmas morning. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
long term period will feature generally dry conds and slightly above 
normal temperatures. For Thursday...aforementioned strong cold front and 
middle-level vorticity maximum push offshore as surface hi pressure builds over the southeast 
states. Expect decreasing clouds through the day with a breezy west wind 
and hi temperatures in the low to middle 50s. The hi slides offshore into 
Friday...with S/SW flow developing over the middle Atlantic and temperatures 
climbing into the low to middle 50s. Another cold front will cross the 
region Friday ngt/Sat. Low pressure may develop along the front over the 
weekend...but with considerable model spread concerning this will 
maintain silent probability of precipitation for now. Hi temperatures Sat still in the low to middle 
50s. 


&& 


Aviation /13z Monday through Friday/... 
low pressure forming off the SC coast along with high pressure 
wedging south will create a setup for a cool/rainy period later 
this morning through tonight with MVFR/IFR visible/ceilings expected. As 
the low moves north...over- running precipitation will track S to north later 
this morning...eventually reaching every akq taf site. Some 
ice pellets/freezing rain possible at smaller airports west/northwest of kric /E.G. Klku/kfvx/ 
between 12-16z. Expect a brief period of 15-20 knots wind gusts along 
the coast as the low moves north and the pressure gradient 
tightens. 


Outlook...a series of low pressure systems and complex frontal 
boundaries will bring chances for rain and periods of low ceilings 
and visibilities through Wednesday. A cold front passes through 
Wednesday night with VFR conds and dry weather Thursday and 
Friday. A period of gusty winds expected Wednesday afternoon 
through midday Thursday ahead of and behind the front. 


&& 


Marine... 
surface low pressure continues to move northeast off the NC coast 
today...then weakens tonight as it reaches the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia. East-NE winds 
will generally average 10-15 knots today on the Middle Bay and the 
rivers...and 15-20 knots for the coastal waters/Lower Bay/Currituck 
Sound. Might even get some gusts to 25 knots over the southern 
waters. Waves build to 3-4 feet on the Lower Bay today...with seas 3-4 
feet on the ocean...except up to 5 feet south. Did go ahead and add the 
coastal zone south of Cape Charles to the Small Craft Advisory as seas look to reach 
5 feet offshore. Winds will diminish quickly tonight with the low 
lifting north...remaining from an east-NE direction north and turning 
offshore south. There is the potential for seas to build to 5 feet out 
around 20 nm across the northern waters tonight...but confidence not 
high enough to raise an Small Craft Advisory at this time. 


Light and variable winds will become east-southeast Tuesday as high pressure 
remains in place over the mid-Atlantic...and the next low pressure 
system organizes over the deep south. Southeast winds gradually begin to 
increase Tuesday night as a warm front lifts north through the area. 
A strong cold front approaches the waters from the west on Wednesday 
with winds becoming southerly and increasing to Small Craft Advisory thresholds (save 
the rivers). The front quickly sweeps through the area Wednesday night and 
offshore early Thursday. Winds remain above Small Craft Advisory levels through late 
Thursday while becoming SW then west. High pressure returns Thursday night 
into the start of next weekend for improved conditions. Seas will 
generally build to 5-7 feet on Wednesday before subsiding again by late Thursday. 
Waves will reach 4 feet on the ches Bay. 


&& 


Akq watches/warnings/advisories... 
Maryland...none. 
NC...none. 
Virginia...Freezing Rain Advisory until noon EST today for vaz048-049. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 7 PM EST this evening for anz632- 
634.
