NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
328 PM EDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure centered over Pennsylvania will drift southeast and 
off the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia coast by Wednesday. This cyclone will strengthen 
into a nor-Easter that will pelt New England with heavy rainfall. 
Backlash from this system will be felt across our region through 
Thursday in the form of considerably cloudy cool weather along 
with gusty northwest winds. A moderating trend will occur over 
the weekend as the storm system moves away from the area...replaced 
by high pressure that will bring warming conditions for the 
weekend...and above normal temperatures for the last week of 
October. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
as of 300 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Low pressure was centered over Pennsylvania with a cold front 
trailing southwest through the central Appalachians. The front 
will cross the forecast area this evening producing a few 
showers...but the greater impact will be for areas northeast of 
our region where showers/storms will increase in coverage per the 
developing/strengthening area of low pressure over Pennsylvania. 
As the low passes off the coast tonight...the cyclone is prognosticated 
to deepen rapidly...yielding to surface pressure falls of about 
10mb in 12 hours once it passes off the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia coast. This rapid 
strengthening will result in a nor-Easter that will pelt New 
England with heavy rain and wind. For our region...we will be on 
the southwest side of the storm...the dry side...so the biggest 
by-product will be cloud cover and wind. Some threat for showers 
will exist over the Virginia/WV Highlands...and across our northeastern 
counties vicinity of Buckingham where wrap around moisture from the 
storm may result in a period of precipitation tonight and Wednesday. 
Aside from this threat...the greater influence that most folks 
within our County Warning Area should notice will be the wind. 850 mb winds are 
prognosticated around 40 kts from the northwest Wednesday. This will translate 
into breezy conditions at the surface with wind gusts of 20 to 30 
miles per hour...and 30 to 35 miles per hour in the higher elevations. Temperatures 
tonight will be cool...but should remain above freezing due to the 
cloud cover and mixing from the wind. Temperatures Wednesday will 
struggle to reach 50 in the mountains...and 60 in the Piedmont... 
cloud cover and lowering thicknesses from the developing cyclone 
putting a damper on any contribution from solar insolation. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday night/... 
as of 300 PM EDT Tuesday... 


We will be watching an occluded low/nor-Easter drift off the middle 
Atlantic coast Wednesday night and Thursday. Short waves pivoting 
around this low will periodically track over the forecast area. 
Moisture will be limited but could see a passing shower or two 
across the Greenbrier valley and Alleghany Highlands through the day 
Thursday. Most notable will be a pressure gradient over the region 
between the nor-Easter and approaching high pressure from the west. 
Breezy/gusty conditions likely along ridge tops and possibly for 
lower elevations if skies become mostly clear. Most clear skies 
possible for the southwest corner of rnk County Warning Area (bluefield to Grayson 
county). Downslope flow should also keep the east mostly clear 
especially across Southside...but the winds will not be as strong 
east as it will be over the mountains. Clouds begin to clear across 
the entire County Warning Area Thursday night...while the pressure gradient relaxes. 
Any winds overnight Thursday will remain aloft and above the 
inversion. 


Models are bringing another upper level trough across the Ohio 
Valley and over the middle Atlantic Friday. This trough will have less 
moisture to work with than the nor-Easter...therefore rainfall 
chances are even lower but not zero along western slopes Friday 
afternoon. This trough quickly moves east Friday night with heights 
building there after. 


Cool northwest flow on the back side of the middle Atlantic low/nor- 
Easter will keep afternoon temperatures cooler than normal Thursday 
and Friday. Overnight lows may dip into the 30s across the mountains 
each night while mixing will deter frost from forming. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Monday/... 
as of 300 PM EDT Tuesday... 


A large area of high pressure will cover most of the Continental U.S....from 
The Rockies mountains to the East Coast...starting Saturday. The 
upper ridge axis will be aligned over the East Coast on Monday. 
Basically...heights will increase each day which translates into 
warmer than normal temperatures for the area through Monday. Heights 
begin to lower on Tuesday as a cold front enters the Mississippi 
Valley. 


Surface high pressure will accompany ridging aloft this weekend. 
This surface high will encompass the eastern half of the 
US...essentially blocking any return flow from the Gulf. With no 
lift and/or moisture...high confidence to run with zero probability of precipitation into 
Monday night. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
as of 300 PM EDT Tuesday... 


Closed low over Pennsylvania will drift off the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia coast 
tonight and Wednesday...and will be the primary focus for weather 
throughout the region the next several days. This feature will 
result in the development of a nor-Easter that will pelt the New 
England coast with heavy rain a wind...and will most likely impact 
air traffic for many of the New England terminals for the 
remainder of this work week. 


For our local region...bkn-ovc cloud bases will be common through 
Wednesday...mainly VFR east of the Blue Ridge...and MVFR across 
the mountains. Scattered showers are possible over the Virginia/NC 
Highlands...and across Virginia north of a kroa/klyh 
line...Highway 460. Little or no shower threat is expected from 
the Virginia/NC state line and points south. 


With the developing cyclone to our northeast...backlash will be 
felt throughout our region in the form of gusty northwest winds. 
3000-5000ft above ground level winds of 40 kts are prognosticated for Wednesday. This 
will result in gusty surface winds at all terminals. 20-30kt 
surface gusts will be common. 


Extended aviation discussion... 


The upper level low will slowly meander about the middle-Atlantic 
region through Thursday...then begin to shift toward the 
northeast and away from the area by Friday. Impacts...especially from 
wind...will continue in addition to widely scattered -shra across 
the Virginia/WV Highlands Wednesday night and early Thursday. MVFR 
clouds will thus be common across the mountains during this time 
period...but from roa to lyh to Dan conditions are likely to 
remain VFR through this period. 


VFR conditions are anticipated Friday-Sunday. Winds may continue 
to be a concern Friday and Saturday...but are expected to diminish 
for Sunday into Monday as high pressure builds over the region 
from the west.
