... Public information statement...

Severe weather preparedness week in North Carolina is March 1 to
7. Todays topic... severe thunderstorms and tornadoes.

When atmospheric conditions are conducive for the formation of
tornadoes... the National Weather Service will issue a Tornado Watch.
A Tornado Watch means that tornadoes are possible. During tornado
watches... you should remain alert for approaching storms... watch
the sky... and stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio... commercial radio
or television for additional information.

A Tornado Warning means that a tornado has been sighted or indicated
by weather radar. When a Tornado Warning is issued for your
area... you should take shelter immediately.

Be sure to take some time this week to learn more about severe
weather safety. Learning and practicing severe weather safety when
the weather is good will allow you to react more quickly when the
weather turns bad. You can learn more about severe weather safety
by visiting the North Carolina department of public safety
preparedness website at readync.Org. This web Page features an
abundance of information... and links to a free cell phone app... that

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
1237 PM EST Monday Mar 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will continue to move east and off the coast this 
morning. High pressure will follow behind the front...crossing the 
Ohio Valley tonight and extending south into the middle Atlantic 
region tonight. A low pressure system over the Central Plains on 
Tuesday will move northeast and will push a strong cold front 
through our area on Wednesday night. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 930 am EST Monday... 


A cold front moving east across the region this morning. In the 
wake of the front...high pressure will build into our region this 
afternoon into tonight. WSR-88D showed a few narrow bands of snow 
and rain diminishing this morning. Made a quick update to diminish probability of precipitation 
this morning with dry air punch and downsloping effect. Leaned 
probability of precipitation towards rnk WRF-arw for next couple of hours. Modified 
temperatures for this morning into this afternoon according to surface 
observation and model trends. 


As of 500 am EST Monday... 


A cold front comes through the morning and will be east of the 
forecast area by noon. Models hold a majority of the precipitation 
along and ahead of the front in the far western County Warning Area 
this morning. Push of drier air behind the front will be enough 
to end chance of precipitation and clear our much of the fog and 
cloud cover this afternoon. High pressure moves across the Ohio 
Valley today and wedges down the east slopes of the Appalachians 
tonight. 


850 mb winds behind the front will be 45 to 55 knots with pressure 
rises 5 to 7 mb/6 hours this morning. Will have winds gusting just 
below advisory level...up to 50 miles per hour this morning. Winds diminish 
this afternoon and the turn to the east then southeast tonight as 
The Wedge becomes established. The east to southeast winds will 
bring low level moisture back north along the Blue Ridge and eastern 
slopes overnight. 


Colder air comes in behind the front today...but with shrinking 
areal coverage of precipitation and some sun in the 
afternoon...temperatures will hold steady or slowly rise. As wind 
drops off this evening...temperatures will cool but as cloud fill 
back in late tonight drop in temperatures will be limited. 


Have added patchy drizzle and freezing drizzle after midnight for 
the typical upslope area along and east of the southern Blue 
Ridge. BUFKIT showed a warm nose around 3000 feet above ground level and surface 
temperatures dropping below freezing. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Thursday/... 
as of 500 am EST Monday... 


We will start out Tuesday dealing with another wedge situation 
similar to what we just went through on Sunday...but with more 
synoptic precipitation to deal with. Cold high pressure wedges down 
the eastern Seaboard will get over run by much warmer air ahead of 
an approaching cold front from the west. Soundings on BUFKIT show 
the depth of the cold air in the boundary layer to be substantially 
deep and cold at the onset of precipitation. This will favor some 
sleet and help keep down icing accumulations from freezing rain as 
precipitation moves in. As is typically the case...the warmer air 
will move in from the southwest with good warming and the least 
potential for icing from the mountain Empire and Grayson Highlands 
of Virginia into the northwest mountains of NC. Expecting the warmer air to 
intrude into the New River and Roanoke valleys during the 
afternoon...but the cold air will moderate only slowly across the 
Greenbrier valley...Alleghany Highlands...and piedmonts of NC/VA. 
However...even this slight temperature moderation should be enough 
to end the threat of freezing rain for the vast majority of the area 
by middle to late afternoon with temperatures in the low to middle 30s. 


Rain will continue across the region as the front approaches Tuesday 
night before it moves through on Wednesday. Based on the latest quantitative precipitation forecast 
forecasts and expected snow melt...current hydrologic models do not 
indicate a significant river flood threat but smaller streams and 
creeks are still a concern. However...consensus timing of the 
frontal passage is not clear cut and believe it best to wait for 
later model runs before deciding if any Hydro watches are needed. 


As colder air moves in behind the front on blustery northwest winds 
conditions appear favorable for a burst of snow as the cold air 
catches up to the back edge of precipitation starting on Wednesday 
night and continuing into Thursday as a wave of low pressure 
develops along the front. It looks to be a fine line between where 
the air temperatures will support snow and where the highest 
precipitation will be. The most likely location to receive several 
inches of wet snow currently appears to be 30 miles or so either 
side of the Blue Ridge...but this will likely change as the 
situation develops. 


&& 


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


Thursday night...some lingering snow shower will still be possible 
east of the Blue Ridge. However...by midnight...precipitation is 
expected to come to an end...and cloud cover across the entire 
region will trend from cloudy to partly cloudy through the night. 
Low temperatures will range from the single digits to the lower 
teens across the mountains with middle to upper teens across the 
Piedmont. 


Friday into Saturday...a broad area of high pressure is expected to 
build into...over...and then east of the area. This will have the 
impact to keep our region precipitation free with a trend from 
colder conditions to milder conditions as we start getting on the 
return side SW-west flow of the high by Saturday afternoon. The trend 
will continue into Sunday with no precipitation and even milder 
conditions as a trough deepens in the central U.S. And a shortwave 
ridge aloft builds over the region. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Monday through Saturday/... 
as of 1237 PM EST Monday... 


The cold front will continue to push east into the Atlantic Ocean 
this afternoon into tonight. Scattered to broken MVFR clouds are possible 
this afternoon into tonight...mainly in the mountains. High 
pressure will wedge down the east slopes of the Appalachians 
tonight. As surface and low level winds turn to the east and 
southwest...low level moisture will return north along the 
southern Blue Ridge. High confidence of ceilings lowering to MVFR 
at kbcb and kdan after 06z/1am. Light rain...freezing rain and 
sleet will lift northeast across our region late tonight into 
Tuesday morning. Gusty northwest winds will diminish quickly late 
this afternoon and evening as high pressure builds in. A wintry 
mixture Tuesday morning will transition to mainly rain Tuesday 
afternoon. 


Medium confidence in ceilings...visibilities and winds during the 
period. 




Extended forecast... 


Another low pressure system that will impact all of the region 
will track from the Central Plains into New England Tuesday night 
into Wednesday. This will result in sub-VFR conditions Wednesday 
and Thursday with widespread rain ahead of the front on Wednesday 
and winter precipitation behind the front Wednesday night and 
Thursday. 


Friday should see a return to high pressure and VFR weather. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
as of 500 am EST Monday... 


There is a concern for the potential of flooding because of the 
combination of snow melt and heavy rainfall across the 
Greenbrier...upper James River basins where up to two feet of snow 
has fallen during the past couple of weeks. 


Some melting has occurred and more is expected today and Tuesday. 
Forecast rain amounts on Tuesday night and Wednesday may reach 1.5 
inches. The combination of snow melt and this moderate to heavy 
rainfall may result in minor rises on area creeks and streams. 
Major flooding is not anticipated at this time. 


The next wave of heavier precipitation should track across the 
Piedmont...where there is little to no snowpack of concern. 


&& 


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