NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
1009 am EDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


Synopsis... 
cooler drier Canadian air will move into the middle Atlantic behind a 
cold front today. An upper level disturbance passing across the 
Great Lakes will bring gusty winds to the forecast region late 
this morning and this afternoon...in addition to spotty upslope 
showers along the western ridges. Cooler conditions will remain 
across the area through much of the week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 955 am EDT Monday... 


Have made only minor adjustments to the forecast this morning. 
Have removed isolated to scattered showers across the western part 
of the area for about then next 2 to 3 hours. Expecting more of a 
noon to 100 PM initiation time for any shower activity in this 
region. Current coverage has waned to only a few sprinkles over 
western Greenbrier County WV. Have also adjusted temperature and 
dew point to reflect the latest observations and expected trends 
into the early afternoon. 


As of 400 am EDT Monday... 


Aside from a few sprinkles left over across the mountains this 
morning...all shower activity has exited the area for the time 
being. The cold front continues to make steady progress across 
West Virginia as the parent surface low shifts east over eastern 
Pennsylvania...and expect the cold front to enter our southeast 
West Virginia counties by around sunrise...pushing rapidly east 
through the morning. 


The main concern for the morning will be gusty winds across the 
mountains behind the front as a deep upper level disturbance 
passes across the eastern Great Lakes. Strong winds wrapping 
around the southern end of the disturbance will push across the 
mountains during late morning and early afternoon...and expect 
gusts to maximum out as high as 40 miles per hour at times at elevations of 30oo 
feet and up. The main energy moving around the upper disturbance 
will shift east of the area during middle afternoon...and expect to 
see wind speeds gradually diminish thereafter. 


With winds shifting northwesterly around the backside of the 
disturbance during early afternoon...will also see spotty upslope 
shower activity develop across our western ridgelines of southeast 
West Virginia into the North Carolina mountains. Lapse rates will 
become steep enough for a few hours during the afternoon that 
would not be surprised to see a few showers develop into 
thunderstorms...but believe those will be few and far in between 
at best. Shower activity will decrease into the evening as wind 
speeds continue to diminish...but expect a few showers to linger 
into early Tuesday. 


Temperatures will be cooler across the mountains today once the 
front passes...however there will be time for decent heating 
before the front arrives across the Piedmont considering the 
decreasing cloud cover and dry downslope westerly winds. Expect 
highs to range from the low 70s across the western ridges to the 
upper 80s across the Southside. Lows tonight will fall into the 
low 50s west and the low 60s east. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday night/... 
as of 230 am EDT Monday... 


Models are in good agreement that a full latitude upper trough will 
cover the eastern half of the U.S. During the short term 
period...keeping temperatures well below average for late July. 


With only a thin layer of moisture expected between 5-10kt 
Tuesday...precipitation will be hard to come by...but kept a small 
chance in far southwest Virginia and northwest NC...as a weak upper level 
impulse rounds the base of the upper trough. Otherwise...only some 
cumulus clouds will cover the region. Tuesday should be the 
coolest day during this period with the gefs forecasting 850mb 
temperatures 2-3 Standard deviations below normal. Model guidance has 
been very consistent from run to run with its high temperature 
forecast....so strayed little from the upper 60s/lower 70s 
forecast in the mountains to upper 70s/lower 80s east of the Blue 
Ridge. 


A weak low that forms off the Carolina coast Tuesday lifts northeast 
into the Atlantic should remain far enough east to not influence our 
weather. Surface high pressure builds into the western portion of the 
forecast area by 12z (8 am edt) Wednesday. Good radiational cooling 
conditions should allow low temperatures to fall into the 40s in some 
locations in the mountains to the middle to upper 50s in the east. 
These values will be close to the records for July 30th. See climate 
section below for record lows for Wednesday. 


Upper trough relaxes some on Wednesday...allowing 850mb temperatures to warm 
a couple of degrees versus Tuesday. Still...temperatures will be well below 
normal. The 00z NAM and 21z sref appear bullish on developing 
upslope showers Wednesday afternoon. Considering the amount of dry 
air in place...kept the forecast dry. Surface high pressure forecast to 
sit over the western half of the forecast area Wednesday 
night...but with dew points slightly higher...lows will be a 
degree or two warmer Thursday morning...but still well below 
normal and close to record lows in some locations like lwb. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 1200 PM EDT Sunday... 


A surface high Thursday over southern Michigan will shift east 
towards New England by Friday and Saturday. At the middle levels a 
persistent trough is set up over the eastern US with a ridge over 
the western US. Thursday lacks low and middle level moisture so expect 
the day to be dry. Moisture and instability increase for Friday and 
through the rest of the period as several disturbances pivot across 
the region around the base of the trough. Expect scattered showers 
and thunderstorms to develop each afternoon/evening and taper off to 
just scattered showers during the evening. Focus of the highest 
chance probability of precipitation are over the mountains where the best convergence will 
be located...with lower chance probability of precipitation out east. 


Thursday will be the warmest day of the period with 850mb temperatures 
around +16c. This will correspond to surface high temperatures in the middle 
80s out east and near 80 across the mountains. As the high shifts 
east on Friday the winds will shift from north/northwest to an easterly 
direction. This will wedge the area in through the remainder of the 
period. With the increased low/middle level moisture expect cloudy 
conditions. This along with expected scattered precipitation and 850mb 
temperatures falling to +11-14c...surface high temperatures will be 5-10 degrees 
below normal Friday through Sunday. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Monday through Friday/... 
as of 715 am EDT Monday... 


A cold front in southeast WV early this morning will move east 
through the forecst area by 18z. Upslope IFR/MVFR ceilings in southeast 
WV/far SW Virginia...including kblf will gradually lift to a VFR ceiling by 
late morning. 


The biggest aviation concern today is the gusty winds associated 
with a strong low pressure system lifting northeast into New 
England. Gusts over 25kts possible in the mountains and 
foothills...including kroa...kblf...and kbcb with 15-25kt gusts 
eslewhere. 


Otherwise...energy rotating through the upper trough will combine 
with upslope and instability below the subsidence inversion and 
steepish lapse rates as seen on model soundings to squeeze out a 
few sprinkles at klwb and kblf through the day. 


Winds will diminish in the late afternoon as low pressure exits 
the region. MVFR ceilings again forecast to develop along the western 
slopes...including klwb...kblf and perhaps kbcb late 
tonight...along with patchy fog over the the climatological 
favored areas such at klwb. 




Extended aviation discussion... 
drier air pushing in for Tuesday-Wednesday will bring mainly VFR 
conditions...but cannot rule out late night fog at kbcb/klwb... 
although the low levels may stay dry enough for less fog coverage. 


Variable ceilings expected under anomalous upper low throughout the 
rest of the week. A few -shra not completely out of the question 
across eastern WV...along with occasional MVFR ceilings. Typical fog 
potential less than normal for this time of year throughout the 
week because of turbulent mixing and prevailing cyclonic flow. 
Toward the end of the week...as the upper low retrogrades just 
west of the region...increasing potential for rain showers/thunderstorms and rain but mainly 
SW of the taf sites into Friday.
