NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
950 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front approaches from the northwest tonight. The front is 
expected to stall just north of the region by Wednesday...then 
lift back north as a warm front late in the week...as high 
pressure aloft builds across the southeast states. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
as of 950 PM EDT Tuesday... 


At 01z/9pm cold front extended from Lake Ontario to southern 
Missouri. A frontal boundary will sag southeast tonight across 
the Ohio Valley...with the active weather remaining mainly west 
of the forecast area. But convective outflows ahead of this 
activity may work into the mountains overnight. Made minor 
adjustments to the arrival time of the higher probability of 
precipitation in the far western County Warning Area based on the 
latest local WRF and hrrr guidance. 


Upper level ridging across the southeast states will build west 
along the Gulf Coast on Wednesday...allowing for increasingly zonal 
flow across the middle Atlantic region. This building ridge will help 
stall a cold front to our west near the West Virginia/Maryland 
border west to Ohio Wednesday. South of this boundary...we will 
remain on the warm/moist unstable side of the front...with 
showers and thunderstorms. Instability parameters are modest for 
the most part...but indicate enough cape and low level shear to 
trigger a few strong to perhaps severe storms...capable of 
producing hail and locally strong winds. Storm Prediction Center day two convective 
outlook placed the better potential of severe weather to our west 
with marginal across western Kentucky and Tennessee. High 
temperatures on Wednesday will vary from the lower 70s in the 
northwest mountains to around 90 degrees in the Piedmont. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday night/... 
as of 340 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Forecast area will be pinched between high pressure to our 
south...and wavering surface front which will try to make inroads 
late Wednesday...retreating Thursday...only to return again Thursday 
night and Friday. There will certainly be showers/storms associated 
with the front...but details with respect to timing are not that 
clear-cut...especially when dealing with a wavering front. 


Models are in agreement that convergence along the front will 
provide track for organized deep convection with marginal risk for 
severe weather per faster westerlies aloft near the frontal zone. 
Increasing instability outside of the higher wind envelope will also 
support pulse strong-severe storms during the peak heating Thursday. 
Forecast for the area will reflect higher probability of precipitation across the northern 
County Warning Area closer to the front...and to a much lesser degree across the 
south until the front gets closer Friday. 


Temperatures for Thursday favor above normal readings per increasing 
heights/thicknesses and a westerly wind component which should aid 
in adiabatic warming east of the Blue Ridge. With 850 mb temperatures 
approaching +20 degree c...surface reading should easily climb well 
into the 80s and possibly the l-M 90s pending sunshine. With the 
front over the area Friday...clouds/showers should keep high temperatures a 
few degrees cooler. Minimum temperatures will average above 
normal...per the high moisture content of the atmosphere. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 340 PM EDT Tuesday... 
models are in agreement the subtropical ridge over the southeast 
states will retrograde toward Texas/Oklahoma for the weekend then 
expand northwest into The Rockies for next week...July 13-17. Short 
wave energy passing downstream from this ridge is then expected to 
carve out full latitude trough over the eastern Continental U.S. With models 
hinting this feature will cutoff over the region for the middle of 
next week. 


During the forecast period...an active frontal zone is expected to 
remain close too or draped across the region promoting daily threat 
for showers/storms...details with respect to timing/path of deep 
convection lacking. As such long term forecast reflects a shotgun 
stance...although did favor the peak heating of the diurnal cycle 
for greatest probability of precipitation/thunder coincident with peak instability. 


Temperatures...although nothing extreme...will favor the warm side 
of guidance this weekend...then retreat to something near or just 
below normal for the middle of next week as the upper trough 
becomes the dominant weather feature. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
as of 655 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Overall continued VFR expected into tonight with widely scattered 
convection along the Blue Ridge possibly pushing east before 
fading with loss of heating after sunset. This may brief MVFR to 
spots where will cover with vcsh/thunderstorms in the vicinity given uncertainty. Other 
concern with axis of more widespread upstream rain showers/thunderstorms and rain closer to 
the front that could reach the kblf/klwb vicinity around midnight 
before weakening. However this area of rain showers may linger into early 
Wednesday so will keep some prevailing rain showers mention over the far 
west. Fog the other issue overnight espcly where some rain has or 
will occur over the next few hours. However much drier air over 
the region should preclude much dense fog outside of earlier 
rainfall so keeping things mostly MVFR at klwb/kbcb with a brief 
inclusion at klyh/kblf late. Any fog or stratus should burn off by 
middle/late morning Wednesday as mixing increases with mainly VFR 
conditions returning late morning into the afternoon. 


As the upstream front moves closer on Wednesday and old outflow 
heads east...the risk for rain showers/thunderstorms and rain will increase across much of 
the region espcly northern and western sections Wednesday 
afternoon. Therefore have added in either a prevailing VFR mention 
for rain showers or thunderstorms in the vicinity for deeper convective coverage at all locations 
excluding kdan where should be farther removed from the showers. 


Extended aviation discussion... 


A cold front will stall near the WV/Maryland border west to Ohio by 
Wednesday night. South of this boundary...we will remain on the 
warm/moist side of the front...and subject to daily threat for 
MVFR showers/storms. However appears coverage will be less than 
that of Wednesday with mostly VFR expected outside of brief rounds 
of MVFR/IFR in widely scattered convection from Thursday afternoon 
through Sunday. 


Otherwise expecting patchy late night/early morning low clouds/fog 
with IFR-LIFR cigs/vsbys. Overall...conditions should improve to 
MVFR- VFR outside of any rain showers/thunderstorms and rain activity during the 
afternoons.
