NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
637 PM EDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will move offshore tonight. Meanwhile...a cold 
front will head eastward...and should cross over the middle Atlantic 
by Friday to bring scattered showers. High pressure will return to 
provide a dry and mild weekend...before an upper level area of low 
pressure provides cooler and wetter conditions next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
as of 635 PM EDT Thursday... 


Raised early evening temperatures up a few degrees with solar 
heating. High pressure will slide east into the Atlantic this evening 
into tonight. A cold front and its associated warm front will 
travel east tonight into Friday and push offshore by Friday night. 
Low temperatures overnight will generally be in the middle 40s to the 
lower 50s with clouds and weak warm air advection aloft. Latest 
rnk wrfarw and hrrr support current arrival time for convection 
along and ahead of cold front. No major changes in clouds...precipitation 
and probability of precipitation tonight into Friday. Will make additional changes in isc 
grids later this evening. 


As of 355 PM EDT Thursday... 


Skies have cleared during the past few hours to allow temperatures 
to reach the lower 60s to the lower 70s this afternoon. High 
pressure should drift offshore later tonight. Meanwhile...a cold 
front will cross over the Ohio River valley. The 12z NAM/ECMWF/GFS 
model guidances have slowed down the arrival of this front by a 
few hours...so probability of precipitation were tapered downward during Thursday night 
from the previous forecast. Low temperatures were held in the middle 
40s to the lower 50s due to cloud cover and weak warm air 
advection aloft. 


Probability of precipitation were increased later on Friday morning hours due to good 
agreement and a little more overall coverage portrayed in the 
models. Showers should linger into the afternoon...before the 
front heads toward the coast by sunset. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts were also 
increased slightly to around a quarter of an inch. However...winds 
should turn to the west and become gusty after the frontal 
passage...and end any of the remaining rainfall. Chances of 
thunder were only placed in Southside Virginia were BUFKIT model 
soundings show cape exceeding 500 j/kg during the afternoon. Storm Prediction Center 
keeps any severe weather threat well to the east of our County Warning Area. Highs 
on Friday were kept on the slightly cooler side of guidance due to 
clouds and rain...with lower 60s to lower 70s expected. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday night/... 
as of 315 PM EDT Thursday... 


Most precipitation will have exited the region at the beginning of this 
period...save Southside Virginia/NC Piedmont and the Greenbrier valley. 
Good burst of wind behind this compact yet decent shortwave...with some 
30 knots gusts Friday evening at the usual locations. Slightly cooler 
air slips into the Greenbrier valley and southern Shenandoah behind 
this boundary...but warm air advection returns quickly across the southern half of 
the County Warning Area. Another disturbance dropping through the Great Lakes late 
Saturday...may allow scattered showers and a thunderstorms to form 
just ahead of a cold front which stalls around Elkins WV...with some 
of these weakening...perhaps as they move into the Greenbrier valley 
and the southern Shenandoah. Sometimes models struggle with this 
regime...so for now at least went with slt chance probability of precipitation in these areas. 
850 mb temperatures in the lower teens to near +15c continue for Sunday...with 
some spots touching 80f possibly Saturday and Sunday. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 330 PM EDT Thursday... 


The next workweek is shaping up to be on the wet side as a massive 
upper level low pinwheels east from the central and northern plains. 
Will start Monday out with cool high pressure wedging southward 
against the eastern face of the Appalachians...maintaining a cool 
easterly wind across our area. A warm front will north along the 
Mississippi River valley...but will get hung up against the 
Appalachians. As such...expect showery weather Monday and Tuesday... 
with an outside chance for thunderstorms across the mountain Empire 
and perhaps the North Carolina foothills...where the stabilizing 
affect of the high pressure wedge will be weakest. Will see a better 
threat for thunderstorms on Wednesday as the low pressure system 
nears the region...allowing the warm front to lift northward before 
the trailing cold front moves in. 


Easterly flow around the high will also result in cooler 
temperatures...and therefore undercut model guidance by a few 
degrees. However...temperatures remain low confidence...and believe 
it is possible that did not go low enough for afternoon highs Monday 
and particularly Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Friday through Tuesday/... 
as of 150 PM EDT Thursday... 


There is high confidence of VFR conditions continuing through the 
rest of today into early tonight. High pressure will drift toward 
the East Coast this afternoon. Winds should remain light and 
generally from the south...and some cirrus will continue to spill 
over the area from a cold front well upstream in the Great Plains. 


As high pressure heads offshore tonight...clouds should gradually 
increase in coverage ahead of the approaching cold front. This 
front is prognosticated to track over the middle Atlantic by Friday. 
Ceilings should lower by daybreak...with a fairly good possibility 
of MVFR as noted in the lamp guidance. Precipitation associated 
with the front should mainly be showers. There is a small threat 
for thunderstorms in the North Carolina and Virginia Piedmont 
toward Friday afternoon...but the chances are too low to warrant 
mention in any of the tafs. 


Extended aviation discussion... 


The cold front should depart offshore by Friday night. Winds will 
turn to the northwest and increase during Friday night into 
Saturday. VFR conditions should prevail through this weekend...as 
high pressure moves overhead. Cloud cover will steadily increase 
by Monday...as a low pressure system slowly arrives from the 
west. Conditions may drop below VFR when scattered showers move 
over the middle Atlantic during late Monday...and chances for MVFR 
are even better on Tuesday due to prolonged clouds and rain. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
as of 637 PM EDT Thursday... 


Low relative humidity values should recover after sunset this evening into 
tonight. By Friday...a cold front should provide some wetting 
showers for Friday...although amounts will be around a quarter of 
an inch. 


&& 


Rnk watches/warnings/advisories... 
Virginia...none. 
NC...none. 
WV...none.
