NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
945 am EDT Wednesday may 6 2015 


Synopsis... 
upper level high pressure will remain over the area today 
through Thursday. A weak backdoor cold front will drift 
south into the area by early Thursday before dissipating 
Thursday night into Friday. Developing low pressure off the 
southeast coast should drift north to along the coast of the 
Carolinas by the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 940 am EDT Wednesday... 


No major changes were made to the overall forecast picture for 
today. However...one adjustment made was the trend of the cloud 
cover the remainder of the morning into early afternoon hours. A 
swath of Alto-cumulus across the northern half of the area has 
persisted all morning. While we do expect this cloud deck to mix 
out by noontime as we transition to surface based heating cumulus 
clouds...until that happens...the forecast warrants a greater 
amount of cloud cover forecast in the north through at least 
midday. 


As of 223 am EDT Wednesday... 


Upper level ridging will remain in place across the region into tonight 
as a weak backdoor cold front edges in from the north/NE by sunrise on 
Thursday. Boost in moisture ahead of the front with forecast precipitable waters  
increasing to around 1.5 inches combined with higher 850 mb Theta-E over 
the mountains should lead to a bit more convective coverage this 
afternoon/evening. However with ridging overhead and modest cape values 
of only 500-1k j/kg mainly far west/north...degree of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain 
coverage remains iffy espcly in regards to organization under such weak 
flow and mainly low level forcing. Most model solutions do develop 
scattered afternoon coverage...starting over the far northwest around midday 
and then along the Blue Ridge per weak southeast flow convergence. Latest 
hrrr/Storm Prediction Center WRF/GFS are the wettest and spill convection farther east... 
while the NAM/hires/ec solutions remain more scattered nature and 
farther north with more organized coverage. Think could be a period of 
likely coverage northwest and ridges where more localized differential heating 
gives a boost but for now holding off...and only boosting probability of precipitation to 
higher chance mainly north-west. Isolated stronger thunderstorms and rain possible but 
more of an isolated heavy rain threat given light steering and likely 
outflow driven redevelopment. Far south/southeast locations may end up dry for 
the most part so trimmed probability of precipitation there given lack of lift. Otherwise partly 
sunny and still quite warm ahead of the front with highs mostly upper 
70s to middle 80s. 


Coverage may linger mountains with perhaps some of this spilling east 
of the Blue Ridge early this evening if a cluster organizes before 
fading with loss of heating before midnight. Therefore kept in some low 
probability of precipitation mainly north half this evening before turning pc with patchy fog 
overnight. Lows mostly in the muggy 50s with some spots along the 
ridges likely staying above 60 overnight. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday night/... 
as of 315 am EDT Wednesday... 


An area of weak high pressure will remain over the middle Atlantic 
through the day Thursday. This shallow wedge may linger over the 
area Thursday night with the help of a sub-tropical low wobbling off 
the southeast coast. Easterly flow from both systems will bring an 
increase in moisture into the area each period. The more moisture 
the better chance for showers. However...we will keep probability of precipitation low (20- 
30 percent) through the forecast period for a couple of reasons. The 
first reason is that the eastern portion of forecast area will be 
under a subsidence region of the southeast coastal low Thursday and 
Thursday night. The mountains will be just outside of this region 
and could see hit and miss showers Thursday afternoon...fading in 
the evening. The second reason to keep probability of precipitation low is confidence. With 
a stubborn upper level ridge over the middle Atlantic...the coastal 
low's forecast track is uncertain and could wobble around the 
Carolinas over the weekend. The third reason is timing of showers. 
If this low tracks inland...timing feeder-bands tracking across the 
area will be difficult. The NAM bring the first band across 
Southside late Thursday night...while the GFS timing is late in the 
day Friday. Dry air entraining into the low Friday and Friday night 
could also keep showers closer to the center and not enter the 
forecast area at all. 


Temperatures will also be tricky through the period. With weak 
steering flow and a shallow wedge...temperatures will warm to near 
80f across the area Thursday. On Friday...more clouds and continued 
easterly flow will knock down daytime temperatures into the middle to 
upper 70s. Depending on shower activity...temperatures could be 
cooler. Despite showers or not...dew points will increase through 
the period so prepare yourself for muggy Summer-like conditions. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 345 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Upper level ridging across the southeast and middle Atlantic is 
expected to move little through the weekend into the beginning of 
the next workweek. As such...expect the trend of summerlike weather 
to continue. The main concern through the period remains the track 
of a low approaching the Carolina coast...potentially pushing a 
plume of tropical moisture across our area which daytime-heating 
driven showers and thunderstorms may feed off of. The threat for any 
severe thunderstorms remain isolated during this time...however 
abundant moisture and light upper level winds indicate a threat for 
slow moving cells capable of producing locally heavy rain. Should 
the low remain offshore...further away from our area...the heavy 
rain threat will be reduced. Weather forecast models are still 
trying to get a handle on what track the low will take...so the 
situation will be monitored closely over the next few days. 


Rainfall and increased cloud cover also has the potential to affect 
daytime temperatures...and therefore afternoon highs also remain 
somewhat in question. With this afternoon's forecast package...have 
afternoon highs ranging from the middle/upper 70s west to the low 80s 
east each day...while overnight lows will be in the upper 50s and 
low 60s. Increased rainfall has the potential to keep afternoon 
highs a few degrees lower on Saturday however. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
as of 645 am EDT Wednesday... 


Fog has been limited to more patchy nature early this morning 
given dry air and middle deck that has persisted across the 
north/west for much of the night. Could still see a period of 
MVFR/IFR in fog at klwb for another couple of hours before 
conditions improve and possible brief MVFR/VFR in fog at 
klyh/kdan. Otherwise thinking mainly VFR from middle morning morning 
Onward with middle deck giving way to 4-6k scattered cumulus fields with 
heating by midday...then broken ceilings over the north and west this 
afternoon. 


Convection should be a bit more widespread across the north/west 
later today ahead of a weak backdoor cold front and aided by 
light southeast flow including differential heating. Models suggest best 
coverage around klwb to init and in a ribbon along the Blue Ridge. 
However organization still looks to be rather scattered until 
perhaps late in the day when clusters/bands merge. Thus will keep 
most convection out of the prevailing groups but include more of a 
thunderstorms in the vicinity flavor mountains for a bit more thunder per weak instability 
and more forcing than Tuesday. Kept rain showers/thunderstorms and rain out of all eastern 
sites with guidance showing most focus over the west but could see 
some coverage eventually work off the mountains toward klyh late 
in the day. 


Convection may linger into the evening while possibly working 
into eastern sections before fading but too iffy to include 
vcsh/thunderstorms in the vicinity mention there for now. Otherwise should see coverage end 
west before midnight and likely give way to another round of 
fog/stratus late at most locations. 


A backdoor cold front will impact the area Thursday with 
added afternoon showers and storms mainly over the far western 
sections. Sub- VFR conditions will be associated under the cores 
of the strongest cells...and then during the late night and early 
morning hours with light fog in the valleys. 


Confidence in forecast parameters Friday through Sunday is low to 
moderate. 


Model guidance is highly variable in regards to the impact a slow 
moving area of upper level low pressure across the southeast U.S. Will 
have on the region. Some guidance has the low centered still off 
the South Carolina coast on Saturday into Sunday...while others 
have it along the North Carolina...South Carolina state line in a 
more or less looping scenario. The former solution...and others 
like it...pose limited if any influence on our region. The latter 
as a wetter...windier...and one more subject to sub-VFR conditions 
for the majority of the area. The consensus scenario still has 
daytime...mountain focused isolated to scattered showers and 
storms developing across the region...with mainly VFR conditions.
