NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
402 am EDT Sat Nov 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will cross the southern Appalachians this morning... 
then push off the Carolina coast during the afternoon...where it 
will rapidly deepen and move northeast. This system is bringing 
mainly rain below 3000 feet...and the seasons first snow over higher 
elevations of many parts of the mountains. High pressure will build 
in on Sunday and Sunday night...followed by moderating temperatures 
for next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 222 am EDT Saturday... 


Strong 500 mb low now crossing the southern Appalachians will quickly 
zip southeast reaching the Carolinas this morning and the coast by early 
afternoon. This will likely cause the current bands of precipitation to 
pivot back toward the northwest early on...before the main northern 
deformation axis sets up and sinks across northwest NC and extreme 
southern Virginia through midday. This will continue to make snowfall 
tricky given needed higher rates to produce accumulating snow per 
warm ground and higher elevations to keep ptype snow before 
boundary layer warming occurs from middle morning on. Current snow 
levels appear to have dropped to between 2200-3000 feet over the 
far west and expect may see some added lowering across the I-77 
corridor as a piece of the coldest air aloft under the upper 
system swings through. This may change rain to snow as far east as 
the New River valley espcly just north of I-81/Highway 460 before 
daybreak where some of the heavier quantitative precipitation forecast could exist early. Otherwise not 
making a lot of changes to the current totals except to edge 
accumulations east a bit into Wythe/Bland/Carroll and Mercer counties 
per latest hrrr. Also with the precipitation slow to move north and east 
cut back on rain chances NE sections a bit longer before the 
entire complex of deeper moisture shunts to the south early this 
afternoon. 


Upper low causes surface low pressure to quickly deepen off North 
Carolina this afternoon before it races NE and phases well offshore 
tonight. This should make for an increasing north/northwest trajectory by 
middle/late afternoon which will end probability of precipitation east while kicking in an 
upslope regime western slopes. Latest forecast soundings indicate a 
bit slower jump in higher wind speeds given clouds around and a 
lagging gradient until rapid deepening occurs offshore. However best 
subsidence/pressure rises look to sync up with a final trailing vorticity and 
the coldest 850 mb temperatures to perhaps result in a stronger nocturnal 
surge in winds this evening. However given more of a northerly 
component...areas outside of the current Winter Storm Warning 
excluding Fancy Gap...may stay very gusty but below advisory 
criteria so will hold off adding in the second period for now. Left 
temperatures closer to the colder mav MOS west today where expect only slow 
rises with some remaining in the 30s. Appears may get close to 50 
east but even there more northerly flow could hold most in the 40s. 


Otherwise decent upslope should result in at least another inch or two 
higher western slopes...with downslope clearing out east tonight 
and some snow shower banding east toward the Blue Ridge per 
soundings. Thus will keep a tight gradient from likely/Cat probability of precipitation 
upslope areas to dry in the east. Freezing temperatures again of some 
concern in the east where the growing season continues but given 
mixing think the warmer met MOS better. Thus keeping most above 
freezing east with 20s to around 30 west tonight. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Tuesday night/... 
as of 330 am EDT Saturday... 


Will start Sunday off with continued gusty northwest winds as a 
secondary upper level disturbance drops south across eastern 
Virginia as it pinwheels around the main upper low pressure system 
approaching Cape Cod. This will keep the pressure gradient across 
our area in the 9mb to 10mb range during late morning...supporting 
wind gusts of 25 to 30 miles per hour across the Piedmont...with higher 
ridges including The Spine of the Blue Ridge...reaching 40 miles per hour at 
times. In addition...will also see a few snow showers linger 
through lunchtime across the higher ridges of southeast West 
Virginia...but do not expect additional accumulations. The 
secondary disturbance will push offshore Sunday afternoon...which 
will allow winds to gradually relax and remaining snow showers to 
dissipate as high pressure to our west begins to settle across our 
area. With northwesterly flow holding strong through the 
day...continued to undercut model guidance for afternoon 
temperatures...with highs ranging from the upper 30s/low 40s for 
the mountains...to the low 50s across the Piedmont. 


Sunday night...high pressure will settle across the area. With 
clear skies and light winds in place...radiational cooling will be 
strong...allowing our overnight temperatures to fall below 
freezing across nearly the entire forecast region. Most areas will 
fall into the upper 20s...however would not be surprised to see a 
few of the deeper mountain valleys fall into the upper teens. For 
those few locations where the growing season has not ended yet in 
the far east...this will finish it. 


Monday will mark the beginning of a warmup as an upper level 
ridge approaches from the Mississippi River valley. Winds will 
shift southwesterly...carrying warmer air from the Gulf Coast 
region northward along the appalachian spine...which will allow 
Monday highs to warm into the middle/upper 50s for the 
mountains...and the low/middle 60s for the Piedmont. Most locations 
will warm into the 60s on Tuesday. Cloud cover will increase 
Tuesday evening as our next cold front approaches from the west. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Friday/... 
as of 400 PM EDT Friday... 


Ridging aloft and surface high pressure will continue in control 
of weather Wednesday...with the next cold front making its way 
from the central U.S. To the western mountains of the forecast 
area by Wednesday night. This front does not appear particularly 
impressive at this time with upper level support well to the 
north...limited moisture and a weak air mass change behind it. 
Frontal passage could be similar to several recent ones in the 
last half of October...with rainfall amounts on the order possibly 
a tenth of an inch across the mountains and even less or nothing 
east of the Blue Ridge. The last two weeks have been very dry in 
our eastern and southeastern counties...and abnormally dry 
conditions have been depicted on the U.S. Drought monitor for 
parts of that area...with rainfall deficits running from 2 to 4 
inches over the past 60 days. The long term forecast does not seem 
to offer much hope to change that situation. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
as of 1250 am EDT Saturday... 


Deteriorating flying conditions will take shape overnight into 
early Saturday...though improving in the east by Saturday 
afternoon ceilings/visibility wise as the upper system passes to the southeast. 


Models suggest rain to change to snow at kblf/klwb by 3 am 
Saturday and mix with snow at kbcb 04-05 am with all rain further 
east. However rate of fall will determine the ptype with western 
locations likely to go back and forth between rain and snow 
pending intensity. Ceilings/visibilities will also fluctuate at times with 
moderate rain and snow but overall expect IFR/LIFR overnight in 
the west...to IFR east. 


During the day Saturday the low will move off the NC coast with 
strong winds taking shape from a northwest to north-northeast direction. Downsloping 
will be causing ceilings to rise in the east to VFR Saturday afternoon 
while the ridges stay stuck in no better than MVFR. Precipitation will 
taper off in the morning in the east and by middle afternoon at 
bcb/lwb. More snow showers are possible Sat night at lwb/blf with 
ceilings staying under VFR through most of the night. 


Looking at gusty winds around 20-30 knots...sustained 10-15 
kts...but severe turbulence can be expected. 


VFR conditions will return to the area Sunday...winds gradually 
diminishing. VFR expected into midweek though a front arrives by 
late Wednesday but looks limited in moisture. 


&& 


Equipment... 
the ac units for the radar shelter are bad. Radar operation will 
be intermittent until such time the ac units are fixed. 
If shelter temperatures rise above critical levels we will place 
the radar into standby to avoid damage to the transmitter. 


&& 


Rnk watches/warnings/advisories... 
Virginia...Winter Storm Warning until 8 PM EDT this evening for vaz007- 
009-015. 
NC...Winter Storm Warning until 8 PM EDT this evening for ncz001- 
018.
