NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
113 am EDT Thursday Sep 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cool wedge of high pressure to our north weakens overnight into 
Thursday. Another larger area of high pressure will strengthen to 
the north of the US Friday into Saturday before passing offshore 
on Sunday. A cold front will cross the area from the northwest on 
Monday bringing a better chance of showers to start the week. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
as of 1045 PM EDT Wednesday... 


Skies expected to cloud back over during the overnight. Overcast 
conditions currently exist over the far western County Warning Area from Bluefield 
WV to Boone NC. This area of cloud cover is expected to spread 
out overnight as moisture pools underneath the subsidence 
inversion via the shallow easterly flow. The evening rnk sounding 
showed inversion layer between 4-7kft above ground level. 


Amplitude of upper trough does not change too much heading into 
Thursday. Think we will see cloud cover expand again later tonight 
once the inversion sets up trapping the low level moisture. There 
is still some variability in the cloud cover forecast per model 
with the NAM having more clouds with less on the CMC. Gfsmosguide 
seems to be a tweener so leaned toward its solution with 
modifications. With clouds around think the temperatures will be affected 
some...so leaned toward met guidance numbers of lower 50s 
mountains to upper 50s southeast. 


The cluster of showers and storms across northern Arkansas/southern 
Missouri will stay well to our south. Will see a piece of shortwave 
energy move by Thursday with some convergence along the Blue Ridge 
to squeeze out a few showers. Not thinking more than 20ish probability of precipitation 
along and either side of the Blue Ridge. Sky cover will again start 
out cloudy in the morning then transition to partly sunny-mostly 
cloudy in the afternoon with more sunshine pushing into the 
mountains once the upper wave passes. Just a slight increase in 
heights will lead to highs in the upper 60s/lower 70s mountains...to 
upper 70s out across the Piedmont. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Saturday/... 
as of 300 PM EDT Wednesday... 


Short wave topping western upper ridge tracks into the southeast 
United States...potential closing off by late Friday. 


Particularly strong wedge builds into the area by Friday morning. 
BUFKIT soundings show a surface based saturated layer as much as 
5000 feet deep topped by much dry air and with east to southeast 
winds from late Thursday night through middle afternoon on Friday. 
Expect widespread clouds in The Wedge and areas of drizzle and fog 
in the favored eastern upslope areas. Stayed at or below cooler mav 
guidance in The Wedge on Friday. Near the fringes of the low 
clouds...in the far western County Warning Area...more sunshine will 
result in warmer temperatures. 


Similar pattern again for Friday night...but on Saturday flow 
becomes southwest. Expect enough sunshine by afternoon for warmer 
temperatures across the entire forecast area. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 300 PM EDT Wednesday... 


Upper trough digs over the eastern United States through Monday night 
with the trough axis crossing the County Warning Area on Tuesday. 
Models offer different solutions after Tuesday. Leaning toward the 
European model (ecmwf) ensemble which has a brief period of northwest flow then rising 
heights on Wednesday. 


Surface low pressure off the South Carolina coast moves northeast 
and will be off the Virginia coast by late Sunday. At the same 
time...high pressure and The Wedge weakens as a cold front 
approaches from the Ohio Valley. Models have been consistent over 
the past few runs...bringing the cold front through the forecast 
area on Monday. 


A very large nearly 1030mb high will cover much of the United States 
east of the Mississippi River Tuesday and Wednesday. Monday night 
and Tuesday night behind the front...European model (ecmwf) has 850 mb temperatures 
of +6 to +8. This will yield temperatures very close to normal for 
the first few nights of fall. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Thursday through Monday/... 
as of 1250 am EDT Thursday... 


Patchy fog currently starting to take shape across most of the 
region with several taf sites already down to MVFR. Expect this 
trend to continue which should also slowly lead to low cloud 
formation...with initial MVFR ceilings over the west spreading 
east...while lowering into patchy stratus by daybreak espcly 
valleys and out east where should stay clear longer. This beneath 
the subsidence inversion that may also trap a cloud layer in the 
IFR range along the Blue Ridge around dawn as well so running with 
MVFR/IFR most sites overnight for now. 


After 14z/10am...conditions will slowly improve back into the VFR 
category...any low ceilings lifting into the 040-060kft range for 
Thursday afternoon. However heating may promote some buildups of 
cumulus across the mountains where isolated afternoon rain showers possible but 
iffy. Thus wont include mention as expect cumulus fields to scatter out 
by evening underneath a leftover middle deck supporting mainly VFR 
into early Thursday night. Flow turns more easterly later Thursday 
night as stronger high pressure starts to build in from the north 
with widespread MVFR/IFR likely developing after midnight with 
the onset of stronger wedging. 


Extended aviation discussion... 


High pressure will dominate the weather through the end of the 
week with little or no precipitation. Expect mainly VFR 
conditions outside any fog at night and potential for some low 
level stratus along and east of roa/bcb...though the high 
pressure should be strong enough to keep moisture limited. 
Presence of subsidence inversion aloft will likely result in 
cloud layer persisting between 040-060kft...so it will not be 
entirely clear. 


Next upstream trough and front expected to arrive by early next 
week with a threat of showers mainly late Sunday night into Monday. 
May see some MVFR ceilings/visibilities within a band of showers during that 
period but appears most of the time will continue to see VFR.
