NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
425 am EDT Wednesday Aug 5 2015 


Synopsis... 
a stationary front extends from southern Virginia...west to 
Missouri. This east-west oriented front will become the focus for 
numerous to widespread showers and thunderstorms...especially for 
Thursday as an area of low pressure ripples east along the frontal 
boundary. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 400 am EDT Wednesday... 


Surface front extends from the Tidewater of Virginia...westward into 
Kentucky and Missouri. Front may drift a bit farther south 
today...stalling vicinity of the Virginia/NC border. Some isolated 
showers/storms are possible along the boundary during the afternoon 
but most areas across our County Warning Area expected to remain dry today. Better 
support for scattered to numerous showers/storms will exist along 
the west end of the front over Missouri/Arkansas and into western Kentucky/Tennessee 
where an upper level short wave will result in the development of 
surface low pressure along the front. Models are in relative 
agreement the activity which forms over the lower Ohio Valley/upper Tennessee 
valleys will reach our far western County Warning Area tonight...with probability of precipitation 
increasing across our southwestern County Warning Area...especially the NC high country 
this evening and for the overnight. With nearly zonal middle level 
flow...debris clouds and showers likely to overspread the Virginia/WV 
Highlands after midnight...and then across the remainder of the County Warning Area 
Thursday. The short wave driving the area of low pressure is 
strong...so see no reason that showers will not persist and become 
more numerous to widespread with time. 


Temperatures today will be warmest across the Piedmont of NC...south 
of the front with repeat daytime highs in the l-m90s. Along and 
north of the front...debris cloudiness will likely hold readings in 
the 80s...but may still test 90 in Roanoke and Lynchburg if enough 
sun manages to get through the increasing cloud cover. For 
tonight...thickening clouds will keep readings mild with lows mainly 
in the middle-upper 60s. 
&& 


Short term /Thursday through Saturday night/... 
as of 400 am EDT Wednesday... 


Widespread much needed rainfall event anticipated across the County Warning Area 
Thursday as a strong middle-level disturbance tracks along a 
baroclinic zone/frontal boundary located through the Tennessee Valley and 
into NC. At 12z Thursday...the heaviest rain/best isentropic lift 
should be located from middle/eastern Tennessee into southwest 
Virginia/southern WV...translating eastward toward the Piedmont by 
afternoon/evening. Surface low pressure will develop across 
eastern SC/NC by afternoon/early evening...then translate 
slowly northeastward Thursday night into Friday morning. Given 
the extensive cloud cover expected to overspread the area early in 
the day and precipitation to follow quickly on its heels with 
little or no sunshine expected...plus the development of surface low 
pressure to the southeast inducing a northeast wind into areas 
east of the Alleghany front...essentially an in-situ wedge will be 
in place as the day progresses. Expecting minimal heating and 
minimal instability...as most of the models agree. This will 
result in primarily rain/showers with little thunder. Isolated thunderstorms and rain 
will be possible along the southern periphery of the County Warning Area where 
some breaks in the cloud cover early in the day may allow those 
areas to heat into the lower 80s before precipitation 
begins...thus supporting some weak instability and isolated thunder. 
Storm Prediction Center has outlooked the far S/southeast counties of the County Warning Area for a marginal 
risk of severe. Models do indicate some shear riding along the 
boundary...which could be enhanced with wedge development...but 
again instability is minimal. For now...do not plan to mention 
severe in the grids or the severe weather potential statement as feel threat is too low at this 
time and such threat will most likely be further south. 


Quantitative precipitation forecast should not be an issue. General 1.25 to 1.50 inch rainfall 
amounts expected...with locally higher amounts in any areas that 
see isolated convection or training of cells. However...much of the 
County Warning Area has been quite dry recently...with only isolated locations 
seeing more than 1/2 inch in the last 2-3 weeks. 
Therefore...rainfall is not expected to be an issue...in fact the 
rainfall will be most welcome in much of the County Warning Area as the recent 
overall lack of rainfall and warm temperatures has left many yards 
and fields parched. 


Maximum temperatures Thursday will be a struggle. With 
clouds...rainfall...and potential wedge development...really see 
very little warming. Have leaned toward the mav guidance as 
opposed to the warm European model (ecmwf). Highs should range from the 60s 
mountains to the 70s Piedmont. The diurnal temperature swing will 
be quite limited and potentially only a few degrees in many areas. 


For the remainder of the short term period...the upper disturbance 
and surface low pressure will slowly drift off the coast of the NC 
outerbanks by Friday night/Saturday. Still expect widespread clouds 
Friday...but rainfall should be confined primarily to areas east 
of the Blue Ridge during the first half of the day...with possible 
differential heating resulting in afternoon showers/isolated 
thunderstorms western mountains. Confidence in this later scenario 
is low. 


By Saturday...the surface low and upper trough continue to drift 
slowly east out to sea. Strong subtropical ridging across the 
central/Southern Plains will begin to amplify into the Tennessee Valley 
with 500mb heights beginning to slowly rise across our region. 
However...unstable northwest flow aloft will persist and most 
models hint at good potential for diurnal convection Sat 
afternoon...albeit instability is marginal. Will continue with 
chance showers/thunderstorms...mainly across the 
mountains especially during the afternoon and evening. 
Temperatures will remain cool Friday...but slowly warm closer to 
normal levels Sat. Through most of the period...the range from 
normal will be most notable with respect to maximum temperatures...with min 
temperatures remaining near or slightly above normal given clouds and 
relatively high dewpoints/relative humidity levels in place. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Tuesday/... 
as of 415 am EDT Wednesday... 


Overall large scale pattern does not change during this time 
frame. Upper trough remains across the eastern U.S. With a strong 
subtropical ridge equally anchored across the Southern Plains. 
Heights rise Sunday-Monday across our region...only to fall again 
Tuesday...as a strong disturbance moves around the eastern 
periphery of the upper ridge from the Great Lakes into the 
central/southern Appalachians by Monday night/Tuesday. Models 
disagree somewhat on the timing and impact of this event. If the 
GFS solution is correct...there could be a significant convective 
event Monday night or Tuesday across the region. The European model (ecmwf) would 
suggest somewhat less potential. At any rate...Tuesday does appear to 
bring the next best chance of widespread convection to the 
area...albeit the extent and severity remain in question. 
Troughing will deepen across the area Tuesday into 
Wednesday...with continued chances for precipitation as a result. 
Maximum temperatures will trend slightly above normal sun- 
Monday...but return to near/below normal levels by Tue-Wed. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
as of 200 am EDT Wednesday... 


Weak frontal boundary remains over the area. However no 
instability available for showers. Main by-product through the 
morning hours will be scattered-broken cloud bases...mainly VFR...but can't 
rule out shallow layer of MVFR cloud elements over higher ridges 
vicinity Virginia/WV Highlands. 


Weak surface front is expected to drift to along the Virginia/NC border 
today before stalling. This front will then become the focus for 
scattered to numerous showers/storms Wednesday night into 
Thursday as wave of low pressure moves along boundary. Main focus 
for deep convection today will be over MO/KY/TN where wave will 
reach first...then activity spreading east across the central 
Appalachians tonight and Thursday with opportunity for widespread 
MVFR and occasionally IFR conditions which will linger from Thursday into 
Friday. 


Until arrival of low pressure anticipate mainly VFR through the 
valid 24hr taf period...mainly middle/high clouds with scattered afternoon 
high based cumulus. Winds today will be out of the west-west-northwest 7-10kts with 
low end gusts west of the Blue Ridge. After sunset...tendency will 
be for wind direction to become more northerly with time...speeds 
decreasing to less than 7 kts. 


Medium to high confidence in ceilings and visibilities through the taf valid 
period. Medium to high confidence in wind speed/direction through the taf 
valid period. 


Extended aviation forecast... 
widespread MVFR ceilings/visibilities possible Thursday and Thursday night as 
a synoptic scale rain event evolves over the region. An area of 
low pressure is forecast to ripple east along a stationary 
frontal boundary. Northeast winds will develop as a result of 
induced surface low pressure which will pass just south of the 
forecast area...the middle-Atlantic region residing on the cool side 
of the frontal boundary. Low ceilings may linger into the day Friday 
before the surface low passes off the middle Atlantic coast. 


For the weekend...drier conditions return with mostly VFR 
conditions outside of the typical early morning fog in the usual 
spots...E.G...lwb/bcb/lyh. Any deep convection over the weekend 
will be mainly confined to the mountains...coverage isolated. 
The next system to bring return of scattered to numerous showers 
will arrive Monday night or Tuesday.
