NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
140 am EDT Wednesday Sep 3 2014 


Synopsis... 
a weak cold front tracks southeast into our area overnight...before 
stalling across the Carolinas and washing out on Wednesday. High 
pressure sets back up over the east by Friday with yet another 
cold front moving toward US this weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 


As of 100 am EDT Wednesday... 
with convection diminishing...adjusted probability of precipitation for early this 
morning. Modified temperatures for the early morning. More changes 
later... 




As of 910 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Band of deep convection continues to push east toward the Blue 
Ridge this evening and despite decreasing instability appears 
progression aided via outflow and upper dynamics. This more in 
line with the earlier NAM output and latest local WRF which tend 
to push much of this coverage across much of the County Warning Area past 
midnight. This seems supported by lingering higher convective available potential energy just east 
of the Blue Ridge so have upped probability of precipitation further to 
categorical/likelys out to the foothills and pushed chances east 
across the remainder of the region. Evening soundings were also 
quite unstable with high dcapes so still an isolated severe threat 
between now and midnight with quick bursts of rainfall resulting 
in over an inch in 30 minutes or so. Some downward adjusts to low 
temperatures but overall 60s to low 70s given the muggy air around. 


Updated discussion as of 735 PM EDT Tuesday... 


With the next round of convection riding up the developing line 
just west of the County Warning Area...went ahead and raised probability of precipitation to 
categorical/high likelys far west for a few hours and extended 
higher chances east across the Blue Ridge. Lingering instability 
and high dcapes still support localized microbursts with slow 
moving storms able to produce heavy rain in a short period. Few 
other changes for now. 


Previous discussion as of 245 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Going to see two areas of convection this afternoon into early 
evening. One firing across the Blue Ridge/foothills from Floyd south 
to Wilkes...and other moving into southeast WV...Alleghany Highlands. The 
12z NAM is doing excellent at this time with having this...but at 00z this 
evening fires up a line from the Shenandoah Valley to the southwest 
across the mountains of far SW Virginia/southeast Kentucky. By this time...leaned 
toward a solution closer to the 12z ECMWF/GFS...and at the same time 
keep convection moving east into the Virginia/NC Piedmont along Lee 
trough. Upstream the shortwave that is over southern Ohio and another 
over Indiana will stay mainly north of US but frontal boundary will 
work southeast through the night. Expect to see best threat of showers and 
storms across southeast WV early this evening...then taper probability of precipitation overnight 
to slight chance...with lack of forcing. 


Lows tonight keep the persistent muggy temperatures we have had...with 
middle 60s west to lower 70s southeast. 


Wednesday...front shifts into NC and will see main focus of showers 
and storms do likewise...while north winds try to dry things out 
over the northern County Warning Area. However 800 mb front edges into the northern County Warning Area only...so 
keeping most of our region in the somewhat humid airmass. For probability of precipitation 
will have slight chance south of blf-roa-lyh line...mainly dry 
north...with the southern tier of the County Warning Area across the NC/Virginia border and 
south in the low chance. Temperatures will drop a few degrees up north but 
still warm across the County Warning Area...with lower 80s west...to middle to upper 
80s east. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Friday night/... 
as of 330 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Strong late season upper ridge over the southern Continental U.S. Remains in 
control through the short-term which will maintain the very warm and 
humid conditions across our area. A weak surface ridge over PA will 
be drifting off the coast by early Thursday with the weak frontal 
boundary located across NC. This boundary may act as the focus 
for shower and thunderstorm activity which will remain mainly 
south of the County Warning Area on Thursday where better convergence and deeper 
moisture exists. The active northern stream will remain well 
poleward of our region in the short term with several strong 
impulses tracking across southern Canada. The first of these will 
drag a cold front down from the upper Midwest reaching the Ohio 
Valley by late Friday. Some pre-frontal convection is possible 
Friday afternoon across our County Warning Area but better coverage more likely on 
Saturday. Temperatures will continue to be remain well above normal both 
Thursday and Friday with highs 5 to 8f above early September 
climatology...running middle 80s to low 90s for highs and lows from 
near 60 northwest to near 70 southeast. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 330 PM Tuesday... 


Slow-moving cold front approaches during the day Saturday with 
decent chances for showers and possible thunderstorms by afternoon 
with the highest probability of precipitation across the mountains. Front will continue to 
drift slowly south through the Carolinas on Sunday and likely act as 
focus for renewed convection Sunday afternoon...but with the best 
coverage south of Virginia-NC border. Drier and somewhat cooler conditions 
likely Monday-Tuesday under high pressure as 850 mb temperatures are knocked back 
to 12-14c range..yielding at least near normal highs/lows before 
ridge tries to amplify again. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
as of 139 am EDT Wednesday... 


Scattered showers will linger for a few hours this morning. 
Across the mountains...cigs/vsbys will start to lower in fog 
development during the early morning hours. 


Overnight the issue turns toward fog...as low level moisture will 
be high. Question is how much clearing occurs and if it rains near 
a terminal. Think confidence in fog occurring is higher at 
klwb...kbcb and kblf...mainly MVFR tempo IFR. 


Fog GOES away after 14z/10am...with VFR expected into the 
afternoon before added rain showers/thunderstorms and rain start to pop up mainly along the 
kblf-kdan corridor and points south in the afternoon. Thinking 
coverage quite less than Tuesday but enough to include a thunderstorms in the vicinity 
mention at kdan while leaving out elsewhere for now. 


Medium confidence in ceilings...visibility and winds during the 
taf period. 




Extended aviation discussion... 


Front stalls south of US Wednesday and models favor convection 
south of a Dan-tnb line. In the afternoon. Mainly VFR except any 
late night fog in the bcb/lwb area Thursday. Front washes out to the 
south of the area Friday with more widely scattered diurnal nature 
showers and storms...then perhaps becoming more widespread 
Saturday into Sunday with periodic MVFR in more organized coverage 
ahead of another cold front arriving from the northwest late. Otherwise 
will see a daily trend of early MVFR/IFR in fog...followed by 
brief VFR...then increasing afternoon/evening convection when MVFR 
to local IFR will be possible. 


&& 


Equipment... 
as of 730 am EDT Friday ... 


The visibility sensor at kdan...Danville Regional Airport...will 
be out of service until further notice. A part has been back-ordered. 


&& 


Rnk watches/warnings/advisories... 
Virginia...none. 
NC...none. 
WV...none.
