NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
405 PM EDT Thursday Mar 26 2015 


Synopsis... 
a strong cold front to our west will travel east this evening and 
push through the area tonight. Much colder air will be moving in 
behind the cold front for this weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
as of 400 PM EDT Thursday... 


A strong cold front located just to our west this afternoon with 
prefrontal line of convection and anafront rain well behind the 
frontal boundary will move east tonight into Friday. The cold air 
wedge finally eroded this afternoon with heating and mixing. 
Anticipating that additional convection will develop ahead and along 
the front this afternoon into tonight as it moves east. Skinny cape 
and instability makes convection forecast problematic with this 
boundary. Used a blend of the NAM and hrrr for probability of precipitation this afternoon 
into tonight. There is some uncertainty if convection develop exactly 
as prognosticated along Blue Ridge mountains by higher resolution models 
like the rnkwrfarw...hrrr and hiresw-arw. For the window for 
thunderstorm development is small. 


Another issue is whether the cold air catches frontal moisture 
associated with the front slowed by low pressure wave moving along 
the boundary late tonight into Friday. The rate of fall is also 
important for late tonight into Friday morning for potential cooling 
of temperatures. Believe that enough cold air catches some moisture 
late tonight into Friday to create some mountain snow showers and 
snow flurries. Any snow accumulations will generally be light and 
mainly in the western upslope favor areas. The strong cold air 
advection combined with pressure rises of 5 to 10mb/6hrs will result 
in gusty winds tonight. Low temperatures will drop into the middle 20s 
in the northwest mountains to the middle 40s in the Piedmont tonight. 


The frontal waves being driven by upper level short wave energy will 
keep residual precipitation across the east Friday. Meanwhile... 
northwest winds will be generating upslope precipitation west of the 
Blue Ridge as much colder colder air moves in. Snow accumulation in 
the western mountains will be limited by the strength of the sun 
this time of year and warm antecedent conditions. Wpc in day 1 paint 
up to 2 inches possible in western Greenbrier and the potential up 
to an inch in the western mountains. High temperatures Friday will 
range from the middle 30s in the northwest mountains to the lower 50s 
in the Piedmont. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday night/... 
as of 340 PM EDT... 


Main issue for the weekend is the influence of the deep upper trough 
and anomalously cold air mass. First...lingering light accumulating 
snow showers on western slopes of Appalachians for Friday night and 
perhaps into first part of Saturday associated with cold advection 
and aided by some slightly deeper lift when the upper vorticity maximum 
and trough axis swing through between midnight and daybreak 
Saturday. Then with cold air mass in place...including colder than 
minus 10 c at 850mb over much of the area Saturday...high temperatures 
Saturday will be 15-20 f below average...and we could be close to 
record lows for Sunday morning the 29th...see climate section below. 
Went with colder mav and European model (ecmwf) guidance compared to met...which both 
keeping trending down...and was tempted to go even colder than 
guidance with the urface high right overhead Sunday morning. One 
caution is that warm advection aloft begins again and there could be 
some thin cirrus drifting ahead of warm front...most likely across 
the west...so will wait another 24 hours before deciding to go below 
guidance or not. 


Also with upper trough overhead and some weak middle level 
instability...some models showing very light showers across central 
through first half of Saturday...so introduced a slight chance pop 
there. 


Temperatures should moderate nicely durng the day Sunday with return of 
warm advection...but still below normal. Could see having to tweak 
those up a few degrees between now and Sunday. 


Next clipper system may arrive as early as Sunday night in west but 
think GFS is a bit too fast with this given position of larger 
trough still off East Coast...so leaning toward slower European model (ecmwf) and 
holding off on best precipitation chances until Monday...but do have low 
chance far west by after midnight. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 355 PM EDT... 


Still some uncertainty in timing of the clipper system and amount of 
precipitation given current model differences...but European model (ecmwf) and Canadian on 
same Page with more of a daytime Monday timing...and European model (ecmwf) trends 
showing little wetter solution and better chances for precipitation to 
spread into Piedmont at some point...so have increased probability of precipitation to low 
chance foothills and slight chance into all of Piedmont...and may 
eventually have to go higher if timing holds steady. 


Plenty mild enough for all rain with this system...with the possible 
exception of highest terrain in West Virginia Monday morning...but 
do not think there will be any issues with accumulating snow even on 
highest ridges. 


Large scale pattern keeps some clipper energy heading toward the 
Appalachians again for Tuesday or Tuesday night...but this could remain 
to the north...which is what current ecwmf solution suggests...and 
there is a trend to flatten the pattern a bit so even the wetter GFS 
may not bring US much of anything...and would most likely do so only 
on western slopes. After that next best chance for precipitation comes by 
Wednesday night into Thursday with better frontal passage and tap of some 
Gulf moisture as models showing some attempt to phase a southern 
short wave with yet another coming out of the northern plains. At 
this point...think the GFS is overdoing the strength of the southern 
piece of energy given a lot of potentially spurious convection near 
the Gulf Coast earlier Wednesday...so once again will lean toward 
European model (ecmwf) which is somewhat drier and not as likely to spread precipitation 
east. Obviously with this being 6 to 7 days out...there is much 
uncertainty with details...and with warming trend throughout the 
week toward or above average temperatures once again...this middle week 
system should not pose any precipitation type issues...nor does it look to 
have much chance of generating any severe weather given either a 
weak wedge in place if going more with GFS...or a very limited 
moisture tap if going more with European model (ecmwf). 


&& 


Aviation /20z Thursday through Tuesday/... 
as of 150 PM EDT Thursday... 


VFR and MVFR ceilings will lower this afternoon into tonight. 
Mixing has eroded the cold wedge in most areas except a narrow 
patch along the southern Blue Ridge. With heating and mixing this 
afternoon...light winds will become gusty out of the southwest 
this afternoon. 


High confidence that a strong cold front will cross through the 
region just around 00z/7pm at klwb and kblf. The front is 
expected to reach klyh around 04z/midnight and kdan around 
05z/1am. 


Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop along and behind 
the front. Visibility may drop to MVFR levels in the heavier rain 
showers. Winds will become northwest behind the front with gusts 
at 20 to 30 knots. 


Showers and gusty winds will continue through Friday as much 
colder air surges into the region. Snow showers and snow flurries 
are likely with MVFR ceilings and visibilities in the western 
upslope areas of the mountains late tonight through Friday night. 


Medium to high confidence in ceilings...visibilities and winds 
during the taf period. 


Winds will diminish Saturday with VFR conditions as high pressure 
builds into the area. Scattered MVFR showers are possible Sunday 
night into Monday. VFR weather is expected Tuesday.
