NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wakefield Virginia 
1010 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
unsettled weather conditions will prevail through the Holiday 
weekend as a frontal boundary oscillates north and south across 
the region. The front finally lifts north of the area Monday night 
into Tuesday ahead of the next cold front that should move into 
the local area late in the week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Sunday morning/... 
the current surface analysis indicates low pressure southeast of Cape 
Cod...with a trailing boundary extending SW back into eastern/southern Virginia. 
Weak high pressure is centered over the Great Lakes region. 
Aloft...somewhat of a split flow pattern exists...with one upper 
trough over eastern Canada...and another lagging well off to our SW 
across the deep south/Gulf Coast states. The current radar mosaic 
shows a line of showers/thunderstorms moving off the Virginia Eastern Shore...with 
isolated-scattered activity back across Southside Virginia. This is associated 
with the surface boundary...and upper level rrq forcing from 
250-300 mb upper level jet. 


Overall...radar data suggests a diminishing trend...and rap/hrrr 
support this as well. Given this...probability of precipitation have been trended down 
overnight. Otherwise...variably cloudy northwest to mostly cloudy southeast. Lows 
in the middle-upper 60s northwest to the lower 70s southeast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Sunday morning through Tuesday/... 
frontal boundary looks to stall near or just south of the Virginia/NC 
border early sun...then will move back north once again later sun into 
Monday as low pressure surface-aloft lifts NE from the Gulf states to the central 
mountains there remain some model inconsistencies in this scenario...largely 
relating to timing and where axis of highest quantitative precipitation forecast takes place. 


The favored area of additional rain showers/thunderstorms on sun likely to be from 
scntrl Virginia to interior NE NC in vicinity of stalled frontal boundary. Mostly 
cloudy S...partly cloudy NE sun. Hi temperatures sun mainly in the l/m80s. 


NAM/GFS/ECMWF into good agreement that deep moisture and lift will 
push into SW portions of the area sun evening...and slowly spread 
north/NE overnight into Monday. This will support likely probability of precipitation once again 
across most of the County Warning Area (will keep probability of precipitation a little lower along the 
coast). Most low temperatures Sun night in the u60s-l70s. Vrb clouds- mostly 
cloudy Monday west/ highest probability of precipitation transitioning a bit to the north/west as upper 
low approaches the central Appalachians. Hi temperatures in the l 80s northwest 
to the upper 80s southeast. Finally looks a bit drier by Tuesday...with just 
20-3% probability of precipitation mainly in the afternoon/evening with highs in the middle-upper 
80s/around 90 f. 


At this time...total quantitative precipitation forecast through Tuesday (most of it occurring tonight into 
mon) will average 1.Oo-1.50 inches central/scntrl Virginia to interior NE 
NC...tapering to an average of about 1/2 inch over the lower Maryland Eastern Shore. 
However...lclly much higher amts are certainly possible due to hi precipitable waters  
(1.75-2 inches)/slo moving or repeating shras/tstms. Will highlight 
ptntl in severe weather potential statement. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
a more typical summertime pattern develops by the middle and end of 
the coming week as a sub-tropical ridge tries to build over the southeastern 
U.S. And a series of disturbances pass mainly north of the local 
area. Widely scattered after/evening thunderstorms will be possible each day (20-30% 
pop). A cold front may drop south into the local area next Fri/Sat. 
Lows through the period in the upper 60s to middle 70s. High temperatures in the 
upper 80s to low 90s...except low/middle 80s at the beaches. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Sunday through Thursday/... 
an east west oriented front was situated near the Maryland/Virginia border at 
23z. This front is expected to move south toward the Virginia/NC border 
overnight. 


A band of showers and dissipating thunderstorms was passing through 
eastern Virginia and the lower Eastern Shore of Maryland at the 00z 
taf issuance. An outflow boundary capable of producing gusts to 30 
knots was expecting to impact phf and orf near the beginning of the 
taf period. Once this precipitation moves off the coast...expect a period of 
mostly VFR before low clouds and fog sets in. Most of this should be 
in the MVFR category but sby and ric may see IFR conditions toward 
morning. Conditions improve middle to late morning. There will be a 
chance for more convection late in the day Sunday. 


Thunderstorm chances remain elevated into Monday as the stationary front 
continues over the area. The front will dissipate with a more 
typical Summer pattern developing thereafter. Late day and evening 
thunderstorms are expected to be widely scattered the rest of the 
week. 


&& 


Marine... 
a frontal boundary draped across the Maryland waters this afternoon 
will drop south this evening and tonight before stalling along the 
Virginia/NC border on Sunday. Mainly west-SW winds at or below 15 knots this afternoon 
will veer around to the north-NE behind the front tonight...except 
near/south of the Virginia/NC border where they'll remain west-SW at or below 15 knots. 
Surface high pressure pushes off the middle-Atlantic coast on Sunday with 
winds becoming east-southeast at or below 15 knots all waters. Light east-southeast winds continue 
into Monday before becoming S-SW at or below 15 knots Tue/Wed. Seas will 
generally remain 2-3 feet through midweek...with waves 1-2 feet on the 
ches Bay. 


&& 


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