NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
1200 am EDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will continue to build into the region from the 
west bringing drier and much colder air overnight. This area of 
high pressure will slide across the area Wednesday and remain in 
control of the weather through Friday with moderating temperatures. 
A weak disturbance moving toward the region from the northwest may 
bring the next chance of showers to the region for early in the 
weekend. 
&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
as of 1150 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Quick update to expire the going Wind Advisory as speeds continue 
to decrease and should diminish further after midnight. Otherwise 
forecast appears on track with upslope clouds fading along with 
isolated -shsn far northwest and skies clearing across the freeze warning 
region out east. 


Previous discussion as of 850 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Front is now well east of the region with cold advection ongoing 
as the coldest air aloft and best subsidence move in during the 
next few hours. This should allow a period of advisory level winds 
in spots along the ridges through about 10-11 PM before the 
gradient starts to slowly weaken. Therefore keeping the Wind 
Advisory going given one more expected surge in speeds over the 
next couple of hours. Otherwise band of deeper moisture has slipped to 
the east with downsloping helping to scour out the low levels east 
of the Blue Ridge where removing any lingering probability of precipitation. In the 
west...best upslope along with moisture looks to linger through 
about midnight...but mainly northwest Greenbrier where another inch or so 
possible. Thus lowered probability of precipitation and snowfall south of there but 
holding onto low clouds longer per latest models and tendency for 
northwest flow to linger moisture. Some of this cloud cover along with a 
flurry may spill out toward the Blue Ridge for a few more hours 
before better drying develops during the early morning hours 
allowing most areas to clear. 


Freeze warning continues for the east where should get close to 
if not a bit below freezing most spots pending just how fast winds 
diminish which may not happen until almost dawn. Otherwise running with 
upper 20s to lower 30s within the freeze warning to low/middle 20s 
west. 


High pressure works from Kentucky/Ohio overnight to the middle Atlantic and 
New England by early afternoon Wednesday. Winds will swing to to 
the northeast then east through the afternoon. Clearing tonight 
with sunny skies Wednesday. Despite the sun...temperatures will be cooler 
than what we have had as 800 mb temperatures drop to -5 to -12c tonight then 
modify to near 0c by Wednesday afternoon. This will provide highs mainly 
in the 50s...with 40s around the higher elevations. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday night/... 
as of 330 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Although high pressure will be over New England...light easterly 
winds combined with Wednesday PM dewpoints mostly in the teens...will 
lead to a very cold Thursday morning...with some record lows 
threatened. Dry wedge with easterly component will persist until 
surface winds are veered with the approach of an upper trough/weak 
cold front Friday night across the Great Lakes. Towns along the 
Blue Ridge will be cooler Thursday and Friday because of the 
upslope flow both days. Clouds will increase Friday night ahead of 
the boundary...but llvls are too dry to support anything but 
sprinkles through southeast West Virginia late Friday/Friday night. Much warmer 
Saturday morning than Wednesday/Thursday mornings. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 330 PM EDT Monday... 


Surface high filling in behind friday's weak boundary eventually 
covers New England and the entire middle Atlantic to close the 
weekend. Again...this high may eventually park over New England 
setting up another dry wedge per the European model (ecmwf). Thus...Sunday may be 
colder than Saturday. The GFS has another surface high just off 
the Carolina coast...with eliminates the easterly component/dry 
wedge...giving more of a southerly breeze and a warmer Sunday. 
Will go between the mex and European model (ecmwf) MOS for highs on Sunday. The 
pattern remains dry and benign...until next Tuesday night...when 
both the European model (ecmwf) and GFS agree on a front with rain showers. Went 
with chance probability of precipitation at the end of the long term with the model agreement 
at this timerange. 


&& 


Aviation /04z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
as of 635 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Ceilings continue to slowly improve across the region as drier 
air swings in from the SW except across the southeast wva locations 
where upslope flow keeping MVFR to occasional IFR in low clouds. Post 
frontal rainfall remains slow to exit the east but still appears 
most precipitation will be east of the lyh-Dan corridor shortly after 
sunset if not sooner. Otherwise expecting a gradual improvement in 
cloud bases this evening with all sites excluding blf/lwb scattering 
out or going totally clear by midnight. Appears MVFR to VFR ceilings 
may hold espcly around blf until the early morning hours per 
latest NAM. Northwest winds will also remain quite strong into this 
evening before diminishing after midnight and becoming light 
toward dawn. Appears could still see gusts to 35-40 kts in a small 
window this evening espcly around roa-bcb as skies clear and 
stronger mixing develops with the core of the cold air aloft 
crossing. 


High pressure builds north of the region Wednesday and lingers 
into Friday keeping widespread VFR in place through the end of the 
week under light east to NE flow. 


The next cold front approaches from the west Friday but appears 
slow and weak enough to maintain VFR during the day for now. This 
system may bring MVFR ceilings to the mountains Saturday along with a 
few showers. Otherwise VFR for the weekend with high pressure following 
this system for Sunday. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
as of 640 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Heavy rainfall of 1 to 2 inches overnight into Tuesday afternoon 
will continue to cause rises along mainstem rivers into midweek. 
Much of the heaviest rain occurred along the Dan River basin with 
levels forecasted to reach minor flood stage at South Boston 
Wednesday morning. Other locations along the Dan around Danville 
and paces as well as Randolph along the lower Roanoke River will 
see bankfull conditions. A river Flood Warning remains in effect 
at South Boston into late Thursday.
