NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
159 am EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure along the middle Atlantic coast will slide south and 
remain about overhead into Saturday. A weak upper level 
disturbance will lift north along the Appalachians Sunday into 
Monday ahead of a weak cold front to the west. Upper level high 
pressure will strengthen in the wake of this feature...resulting 
in more diurnal nature showers and storms into the middle of next 
week. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
as of 1137 PM EDT Friday... 


Outer ring of high clouds from what was left of Danny streaming 
across the southern County Warning Area with middle clouds across the mountains and 
northern sections of the Virginia Piedmont along/north from lyh to 
roa. 


Forecast overnight favors a mix of clouds and stars...with some 
valley fog forming. Overnight lows will be warmer than previous 
nights as dewpoints are in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Adjusted 
some temperatures up. Lows be in the middle to upper 50s...with some urban 
areas in the lower 60s. 


Previous valid discussion... 


The main weather feature driving our weather into the first part of the 
weekend will continue to be an area of high pressure lingering over the 
eastern Seaboard with any significant synoptic short wave energy 
sliding by well to our north. Saturday will have a similar flavor 
with isolated showers possible west of the ridge. Highs Saturday 
will be in the middle 80s east to upper 70s/around 80 west. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Monday/... 
as of 230 PM EDT Friday... 


Ridging both surface and aloft will linger into Saturday night before 
giving way to an upstream upper trough and associated weak frontal 
boundary Sunday into Monday. This should allow for a plume of deeper 
moisture across the southeast to be pulled northward along the 
Appalachians with embedded shortwave energy aiding lift along with 
heating. 


Models continue to show the best focus in an arc across the 
mountains with better instability...diffluence and Theta-E right along 
the western slopes especially later Sunday into early Monday. However 
this again within an area of low level subsidence enhanced via weak 
surface ridging across the mountains so expecting more scattered nature 
coverage at this point. Thus holding off on going much more than middle 
chance probability of precipitation...mainly Blue Ridge west from Sunday afternoon into late 
Monday...with highest across the far western counties where forecast 
soundings show quite a moist/weakly veered profile by Monday afternoon. 
With low level moisture a bit less east of the mountains...appears 
showers more isolated so only keeping a 20ish pop out east for now. 


Warming 850 mb temperatures support rather warm temperatures east of the mountains both 
Sunday and Monday when temperatures may get close to 90 Piedmont pending 
degree of clouds. Otherwise becoming more muggy given increasing 
dewpoints...and highs mostly in the 80s with some 70s possible far west 
especially if showers are more widespread Sunday/Monday. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
as of 1240 PM EDT Friday... 


Overall persistence forecast at least early on as upper ridging 
strengthens across the region in the wake of the passing wave aloft and 
in increasing subsidence well north of Erika. This should result in a 
more diurnally driven trend of daily showers and isolated storms each 
afternoon/evening with a gradual increase in coverage/expanse from 
Tuesday through Thursday given better precipitable waters /moisture and slight cooling 
aloft. However think low/medium chance probability of precipitation confined mainly along/west 
of the Blue Ridge per orographics...and more isolated elsewhere 
especially given moisture over top a lingering surface ridge. Thus 
followed closer to trends from wpc with a gradual boost in probability of precipitation each 
day but little during the overnights into Thursday. Things become more 
uncertain by day7 with models lowering heights across the Appalachians 
and from the NE with a possible associated backdoor cool front. This 
could help focus moisture given a better easterly trajectory to the 
north of Erika or its remnants on Friday. Therefore going with more 
widespread chance probability of precipitation per potential tropical type precipitable waters  over the area 
during heating Friday afternoon. 


Otherwise little change in daily temperatures given such a humid/warm 
airmass...supporting highs mostly in the 80s and lows in the 60s except 
perhaps a bit cooler Friday pending clouds/showers. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
as of 155 am EDT Saturday... 


High pressure is centered over the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia this morning...making 
for very light south southeasterly windflow across the area. Low 
level moisture is gradually increasing as this windflow draws 
Atlantic air upslope into the mountains. As such...surface 
observations across the mountains and foothills have detected 
scattered ceilings in the 4kft to 6kft range...which are expected 
to persist through the night. May also see the visibility bounce 
up and down in spots...depending on cloud cover...as patchy ground 
fog develops across locations where the skies clear. 


Any fog will burn off quickly after 29/14z with daytime heating... 
resulting in VFR conditions areawide. Increasing moisture will 
make for a scattered cumulus field developing late morning...possibly 
becoming broken across the mountains during late afternoon...with 
ceiling bases 4kft to 6kft. Instability is limited...but may be 
sufficient to trigger isolated showers across southeast West 
Virginia...possibly as far east as kbcb. Even then...shower 
threat is not expected to result in sub VFR conditions where they 
occur for more than a few minutes. Convection will wane toward 
sunset. 


Extended aviation discussion... 
as of 130 PM EDT Friday... 


Expect a mainly VFR forecast into Sunday. Moisture gradually 
increases...which will raise our chances for diurnal showers and 
storms as we head into the first part of next week. Short wave 
energy moving up from the south will give the best chances for 
more widespread convective activity in the Sunday/Monday time 
frame. Generally expect the best chances for MVFR/IFR to be late 
night/early morning due to fog and stratus development from the 
Blue Ridge west especially at klwb/kbcb.
