NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
704 PM EST sun Nov 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
a warm front will lift north across the region tonight. The rain 
may be heavy at times this evening and early tonight...and winds 
will become quite gusty across the mountain Empire region and 
other high elevations west of the Blue Ridge. Unseasonably warm 
conditions are expected Monday in the wake of this system...before 
a cold front moves through Monday night into Tuesday...returning 
temperatures to below normal for the rest of the week. There is 
the potential for a coastal storm to impact parts of the middle 
Atlantic for middle week. 


&& 


Near term /through Monday/... 
as of 630 PM EST Sunday... 


Winds have been gusting up to 35-40 kts at blf and west...as core 
of low level jet moves across the central Appalachians. A few more hours are 
expected of higher winds in the favored western slopes with a southeast 
component to the wind. Not going to add Summers or western 
Greenbrier to an advisory but we could see a small window rest of 
the evening where higher ridges could gust to 45 to 50 miles per hour...but 
by midnight flow turns more south to south-southwest...with main jet moving 
out. 


Radar showing more of a solid area of rain moving northward across NC 
into SW Virginia. The 21z hrrr showing this fairly well with the local 
WRF not too far off...and adjusted probability of precipitation through midnight to 
account for better threat in the west. Regional radar shows the 
dry slot moving across eastern Alabama/western Georgia into southern Tennessee....with upper 
shortwave pushing east of Memphis Tennessee. Solid shield of rain will be 
lifting across between now and 1 am...and should clear our County Warning Area 
after 1-2 am. 


Adjusted temperatures down across The Wedge areas this evening as temperatures 
running cooler than earlier forecast. Still looks like warm front 
lifting north with wedge breaking under the moderate to heavy rain 
should cause temperatures to steady or slightly rise overnight...per 
previous forecast. 


As far as severe threat forecast effective shear and cape suggest 
that our County Warning Area will be outside the wind threat...though some higher 
gusts could occur around midnight south of the Dan/South Boston 
area. 


Previous valid discussion... 
Wind Advisory remains in effect for the counties of Tazewell and 
Smyth in Virginia and Mercer in West Virginia. 


Broad upper level 500h trough will encompass much of the central 
Continental U.S. For Monday to start the workweek. A cold front will approach 
from the west Monday. A warm sector southerly winds will result in a 
breezy mild Monday. 1000-500mb thickness values of 565-570dm and 
850h temperatures around plus 10c support surface temperatures from 
around 60 degrees in the mountains to the lower 70s in the Piedmont. 
The surface cold front crosses the mountains late in the day... with 
GFS solution a little quicker than the NAM/ECMWF. 


&& 


Short term /Monday night through Wednesday night/... 
as of 338 PM EST Sunday... 


On Monday night low level moisture is banked up against the western 
slopes of the Appalachians. Models erode low level moisture on 
Tuesday morning. 


Overall pattern this time frame is for split flow with an active 
northern stream along the Canadian/northern U.S. Border and southern 
stream that has a strong short wave at the base of the trough over the 
lower Mississippi Valley by late Tuesday. Evolution and timing of 
long wave trough from positive tilt to negative tilt and amount of 
phasing between the two jet streams will impact the resulting track 
of the Gulf to East Coast surface low and location of the heaviest 
precipitation. At this time spread in different models is large. 
Highest confidence is with the timing but much lower with the 
location and type of precipitation. Will be leaning toward blend of 
the European model (ecmwf) and GFS as suggested by wpc. 


Models show middle Atlantic region in the right rear quadrant of a 170 
knot upper jet by late Tuesday night. At the surface the cold front 
moves off the East Coast Monday night then high pressure builds from 
the Tennessee Valley into the Middle Atlantic States on Tuesday. Low 
pressure develops in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday...then tracks 
across Florida Tuesday night. The low should be off the South 
Carolina coast on Wednesday morning as it moves northeast and begins 
to deepen. 


Once the location of the precipitation is determined...temperatures 
will influence what type of precipitation will occur. Even taking the 
cooler met/sref guidance for temperatures on Tuesday night and 
Wednesday...surface values may still be too warm east of the Blue 
Ridge to support anything but rain. Have used partial thickness 
values...mainly from the GFS/European model (ecmwf) to place rain/snow line. This 
will change as the event draws closer. 


Looked at probability for snow and correlation with past analog 
events. Appears there is at least the potential for some winter 
precipitation. Since Wednesday is a major travel day will mention 
potential for winter precipitation in the hazardous weather 
outlook. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 130 PM EST Sunday... 


This portion of the forecast starts with the aftermath of what 
unfolds Tuesday night into Wednesday evening. Given there still is 
generous uncertainty in those events...the events afterwards are 
equally challenging. The general consensus is for a low/trough to 
deepen across the Great Lakes/Ohio Valley as the system along the 
coast heads northeast...and makes way for the upstream system to 
enter our region. The past few days...guidance has transitioned this 
system from a slower...more amplified system into one that is more 
progressive and the bulk of its energy remains north of the region 
as it moves eastward. That trend continues today. Our forecast will 
reflect little change from the prior during the Thursday through 
Friday timeframe. The highlights here are upslope rain/snow showers 
across southeast West Virginia and neighboring counties of southwest 
Virginia. A decent northwest flow will help clouds to a minimum east 
of the crest of the Blue Ridge and add a touch of a warming 
influence. Partly to mostly cloudy skies and cooler temperatures 
will be the rule for the mountains. 


Saturday into Sunday the region transitions into more of a zonal 
pattern. There is consistency in each model concerning that feature. 
What varies significantly is the timing...track and speed of a 
disturbance moving within this zonal flow that may or may not impact 
our region. At this time...have placed the greatest forecast weight 
on a model consensus that offers a small chance of light rain/snow 
mainly in the western parts of the area Saturday night into early 
Sunday with temperatures trending milder over the weekend. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Monday through Friday/... 
as of 650 PM EST Sunday... 


Winds...rain and clouds will hinder aviation operations 
through the morning Monday. 


Ceilings will be variable in the IFR/MVFR range with light to moderate 
rain expected this evening into early overnight. Think the decent 
rain will be exiting after midnight in the western taf 
sites/blf/lwb...and lyh/Dan after 07z. With in situ wedge in place 
early this evening and strong low level jet...will see a period of low level 
wind shear which ends after midnight...at all sites. 


Overnight...main issue will be whether leftover moisture can lead 
to fog...but think with south to south-southwest winds appearing to stay up 
will be limited in fog development. Will keep ceilings MVFR though 
over much of the night though seeing dry slot into Alabama/Georgia may bring 
VFR ceilings or even scattering them out in blf by dawn. 


SW winds ahead of the cold front to keep VFR at all taf sites by 
late Monday morning. The issue will be the winds with 10-15 knots 
sustained gusting to 20-30 knots at times. 


Wind will turn more westerly late in the taf period but left that 
out for now in the tafs given such an active first 12-18 hours. 


Confidence for sub VFR through tonight is high...but low on timing 
of IFR vs MVFR with respect to cig/vsby...again fluctuations will 
occur based on rainfall intensity. 


Confidence is higher Monday with return to VFR most 
locations...with a small window in the morning of MVFR. 




Extended discussion... 


Winds will stay gusty Monday night behind cold front....with 
potential for sub VFR ceilings in the mountains...while VFR is expected to 
the east. Another storm system is expected to move up the 
southeast coast by early Wednesday which may bring wintry precipitation 
to the area along with sub VFR at all sites. Looks like flights 
will be impacted greatly across the middle Atlantic into the 
northeast with this system with strong winds expected along with 
widespread precipitation. Around here looks like we will 
experience sub VFR at least Wednesday into early Thanksgiving before 
high pressure works in from the west...though winds may stay up 
through Thursday night...with upslope lower ceilings at blf/lwb.
