NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
718 am EST Sat Feb 6 2016 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will be centered over the middle Atlantic region today. 
A storm system developing off the southeast coast will move 
northeast but pass well to the south and east of the area Sunday 
and Sunday night. A second area of low pressure will move 
southeast through the Upper Middle West...Crossing the mountains from 
the northwest early next week. This second low will have the 
greatest impact on our weather...bringing much colder temperatures 
along with snow showers for Monday through Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 430 am EST Saturday... 


Some high thin clouds overspread the area last night...remaining 
very thin for most of the night and allowing temperatures to dip 
into the teens to lower 20s. After a cold start this morning 
expecting a rebound back above freezing. Question is whether we 
will be as warm as MOS which is advertising highs in the middle to 
upper 40s. This will likely depend on the thickness of the high 
clouds today...models suggesting at least 50 percent opaque which 
will limit full insolation. At this time have trimmed highs a degree or 
two compared to mav MOS...but did not stray too much per potential 
for clouds to be thinner than forecast. 


Weather map shows a 1031 mb surface high centered overhead. The 
boundary layer is very dry with dewpoints in the teens. The 
clouds are associated with upper level moisture which is streaming 
ahead of an approaching upper level trough in the central Continental U.S.. 
shortwave energy which is passing through the base of the trough 
is beginning to cut off from the main flow...thus resulting in a 
swirl of precipitation over eastern Texas. This upper level feature is 
prognosticated to drift east along the Gulf Coast today and tonight. As 
the trough moves east...an area of surface low pressure will 
develop just off the coast vicinity of Jacksonville Florida...then 
begin to deepen and track northeast along the Gulf Stream. 


Models keep deepest moisture confined to the southeast Atlantic 
coast...with potential to reach as far inland as the Columbia SC 
to Raleigh Durham corridor late tonight. Farther northwest over 
our forecast area the threat for precipitation is small enough not 
to include in the forecast at this time. In the event the storm were to 
track closer to the coast then changes would be needed to 
introduce a chance of precipitation early Sunday morning for areas just 
southeast of Danville. For now...model consensus is to keep the 
precipitation threat out of our County Warning Area...therefore will continue to 
entertain a dry forecast. 


That being said... the only sensible weather we will likely see 
over the next 24 hours will be cloud cover which will be in the 
form of the upper level cirrus...thickening for a period of time 
today and tonight...and lingering across our southeastern County Warning Area 
Sunday. This will primarily impact temperature...keeping US under 
guidance today...and potentially keeping US above guidance 
tonight. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday night/... 
as of 430 am EST Saturday... 


Upper level low closes off over the upper Mississippi Valley on 
Sunday morning...digs southward into the Ohio Valley Sunday 
afternoon into Sunday night...then rotates eastward Monday. 
The southern stream system gets kicked to the east then northeast 
into Monday. 


At the surface...the coastal low pressure off the Georgia coast 
Sunday morning will deepen as it moves northward Sunday and 
northeast off into the Atlantic Ocean Sunday night into Monday. 
Meanwhile...low pressure moves eastward through the Great Lakes 
into Monday with a secondary low developing over the middle Atlantic 
region...which then deepens off the coast on Tuesday. 


The Richer more widespread cloud cover Sunday will occur in the east 
closer to the coastal low center lifting northeast along the East 
Coast. High temperatures on Sunday will range from the lower 40s in 
the mountains to the lower 50s in the Piedmont. Clouds increase 
from the west ahead of the northern stream system Sunday night. The 
GFS is faster with bringing the deeper moisture in the west Sunday 
night into Monday compared to NAM and European model (ecmwf). With the dry airmass 
in place leaned towards slower solution...allowing some light probability of precipitation 
for snow in the west late Sunday night. Low temperatures Sunday 
night will vary from the lower 20s in the mountains to the lower 
30salong the southern Blue Ridge. Moisture spreads quickly east on 
Monday with a region of good upper diffluence crossing the middle 
Atlantic region. A mixture of rain and snow is expected on Monday. 
High temperatures Monday will range from around 30 degrees in the 
mountains to near 50 degrees in the Piedmont. It becomes cold enough 
for all areas to changeover to snow Monday night. Low temperatures 
Monday night will generally be in the 20s. Snow accumulations for 
Monday and Monday night will vary from a coating in the east to as 
much as 5 inches in northwest upslope locations in Greenbrier County 
in West Virginia. This matches up fairly well with wpc day 3 snow 
accumulations ending 12z Tuesday. Will the the mention of the 
potential for snow to the severe weather potential statement. The combination of temperatures and 
winds will create wind chills as cold as the single digits. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 250 PM EST Friday... 


Significant lowering of heights and temperatures by Tuesday...with 
eastern 500 mb long wave trough being re-enforced by another short 
wave on Wednesday. The trough axis moves East...Heights rise...and 
temperatures moderate Wednesday night and Thursday. Expecting long 
fetch of northwest flow...that may even tap moisture from the only 
partially frozen Great Lakes Tuesday night and Wednesday. 
Questionable if the western upslope will continue past Wednesday 
night since surface to 850 mb winds become more west by that time. 


Cold 850 mb air with the eastern trough reaches the forecast area on 
Tuesday night and Wednesday...potentially bottoming out around -18 
by Wednesday night. Will highlight potential low wind chill values 
at higher elevations in the far western County Warning Area in the 
hazardous weather outlook. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
as of 1150 PM EST Friday... 


VFR conditions expected over the central Appalachians through the 
taf valid period. 


High pressure is centered over the Middle Atlantic States...producing 
fair weather and light winds. There will be a cloud layer above 
10kft...thickening this evening as low pressure develops along the 
southeast Atlantic coast. 


High confidence in VFR conditions through midnight tonight. Medium 
confidence late tonight and Sunday. 


Extended discussion... 


Low pressure along the southeast Atlantic coast may spread mixed 
precipitation into parts of the Carolinas Sunday. At this time this system 
is expected to remain far enough south and east not to impact 
teminals closer to the mountians. That said...cloud bases may 
still lower under 10kft vicinity of Danville and Greensboro Sunday 
with lower cloud bases to the east and higher bases to the west. 
As the storm system deepens Sunday...winds will become northerly. 


For Monday and into next week...a strong upper low pressure system 
will sink southward from the Great Lakes and upper Midwest. This 
will introduce MVFR conditions across most taf sites from Monday 
through Wednesday. 


An Arctic front will cross the region Monday followed by a second 
surge of Arctic air Tuesday. Northwest winds will increase with 
an influx of very cold air and single digit wind chills. Snow 
showers will begin Monday and continue through middle week resulting 
in visibility restrictions across the mountains in addition to low 
ceilings. Accumulating snow is likely in the mountains west of the 
Blue Ridge. Flurries may occur as far east as the Piedmont.
