NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
753 PM EDT sun may 24 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure both surface and aloft will remain over the eastern 
United States through Monday. This will ensure dry weather for the 
remainder of the Holiday weekend with temperature and humidity 
trending higher. Moisture will return to the area by Monday and 
Tuesday...with showers and thunderstorms developing 
Tuesday...becoming more widespread across the region Wednesday 
through Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /through Monday/... 
as of 230 PM EDT Sunday... 


18z surface map shows axis of high pressure off the Atlantic coast 
nosing into the region. More cumulus has formed today under nose of 
55+ degree dewpoints that have advected into central/eastern Virginia 
and NC. 


Southerly winds on western periphery of departing high will help 
advect a shallow level of low level moisture into the far southwest 
portion of the forecast area...and this may bring a blanket of 
stratus clouds in this region early Monday morning. 850mb winds at 
15-20kts tonight will likely help create another large Ridge/Valley 
split in temperatures. Similar to Saturday morning...went a few degrees 
above guidance for lows at blf and other higher elevation 
sites...with lows below guidance in the valleys such as Burkes 
Garden. 


Humidity begins to return Monday as the eastern edge of precipitable water plume 
moves into far SW Virginia and northwest NC on Monday. As the upper ridge axis 
moves east...and we come under the influence of a deep 
south/southwesterly flow...weak disturbances well in advance of 
negatively tilted upper level trough in the central U.S. Begins to 
encroach our far southwest area. This...combined with some modest 
instability...may generate widely scattered showers/storms Monday 
afternoon and kept small probability of precipitation in this area. 


Temperatures should again be a couple of degrees warmer Monday...so leaned 
toward the warmer guidance for highs. 


&& 


Short term /Monday night through Wednesday night/... 
as of 230 PM EDT Sunday... 


Upper level ridging will gradually shift farther east Monday night 
allowing precipitable waters  to quickly increase from the SW as moisture transport on 
deepening southerly flow takes shape. This may allow showers/isolated 
storms to linger well west of the Blue Ridge into early Tuesday as 
models show a lobe of deeper moisture remaining along the western 
slopes. 


Remaining ridging aloft finally departs by Tuesday night in response to 
lowering heights per 500 mb troffiness swinging by to the northwest. However the 
persistent moisture axis to the west may still be slow to push east 
given negative tilt to the upper trough and parallel southerly flow 
along the back of the departing ridge. This may tend to hold the best 
convection to the far western mountains Tuesday with coverage slowly 
shifting east Tuesday night as a weak middle level wave rides up from the 
SW. Thus will edge chance probability of precipitation only east to the foothills Tuesday 
afternoon given weak convective available potential energy despite increasing moisture. Appears best 
coverage Tuesday night western ridges where will bump probability of precipitation to low 
likelys far west overnight...but still only low chance Blue Ridge and 
points east as the trough to the west sharpens. 


Weak surface trough associated with the weakness aloft slides across 
the region Wednesday...stalling across the east Wednesday night. 
Forecast precipitable waters  of 1.5-2.0 inches along with convective available potential energy of 500-1k j/kg should 
combine with cooling aloft/less cap to produce more in the way of 
widespread rain showers/thunderstorms and rain espcly mountains...and across the east Wednesday 
afternoon/evening with a weak Lee trough. Therefore will keep higher 
likely probability of precipitation going mountains with at least chance coverage east later in 
the day/evening. Winds aloft not very impressive while steering quite 
weak and given high moisture content could be more of a heavy rain vs 
severe threat into Wednesday night. 


Temperatures to become warm/muggy through the period as dewpoints rise into 
the 60s and clouds increase espcly west. Appears overall highs mostly 
75-80 west and low/middle 80s east with lows 60-65. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 145 PM EDT Sunday... 


A very warm and muggy period more reminiscent of Summer looks to 
prevail for late week into next weekend as a moist south/SW flow 
persists between high pressure offshore and upper troffiness to the northwest. 
This provided strong heating should result in at least diurnal showers 
and storms espcly over the mountains where aided by orographics and 
differential heating. However coverage may be a bit less...and perhaps 
more in the east Thursday...in the wake of an earlier passing surface 
trough that will produce a weak west/northwest trajectory Thursday afternoon. 
This seen via a slight drop in model precipitable waters  before return SW flow takes 
shape Friday when overall focus will be less...but without much cap 
appears some scattered convection likely. 


Upper heights will slowly flatten next weekend as another 500 mb trough 
starts to sink south from the upper Midwest with its associated cold 
front likely oozing toward the area by Sunday. Models differ on how 
fast this boundary pushes southeast with the earlier ec more hung up to the northwest 
per waves along the front...while the GFS more backdoor fashion and 
faster. However appears that the boundary will be close enough to 
produce more widespread showers/storms Sunday afternoon espcly 
northern/western sections...with more scattering Saturday outside of 
the northwest where more organized pre-frontal bands could drop in late. 


Otherwise overall trend of early fog to becoming pc during the day with 
more clouds by Sunday...and diurnal chance probability of precipitation...except some likely 
probability of precipitation west later in the weekend. Expect temperatures to slowly climb each day 
with highs possibly touching 90 out east over the weekend with mainly 
80s elsewhere. Lows look quite warm and muggy..only in the 60s at best 
given moisture around. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Monday through Friday/... 
as of 740 PM EDT Sunday... 


VFR ceilings expected to continue through the taf valid 
period...although some subtle signs of bigger changes to take 
place through the week...will become evident this taf valid 
period. The upper ridge centered over the region will continue to 
drift slowly east through Monday...moving toward the coast by 
Tuesday. A broad diffluent upper trough encompasses much of the 
U.S. West of the Mississippi River...and this will be expanding 
further east through the middle part of the week. A series of upper 
short waves will track from the middle-south to the northeast Monday- 
Wednesday...each breaking down the upper ridge and forcing it to shift 
further east. Low-level moisture will be on the increase with 
southwest flow around a Bermuda high. This will result in 
increasing cumulus development in the 040-060 range Monday 
afternoon with periods of broken ceilings in this VFR range possible Monday 
afternoon...especially west of the Blue Ridge...but feel that the 
potential for rain showers/thunderstorms and rain will remain west of the County Warning Area for Monday. 
Slight concern for lower ceilings in stratus west of the Blue Ridge in 
the 10z-14z time frame as advertised by NAM/GFS low-level moisture 
fields...but have left out for now with limited support via BUFKIT 
soundings or model generated tafs. The increased moisture in the 
boundary layer may lead to some brief MVFR br at the usual spots 
Monday morning...but overall feeling is that the potential for such 
is low at this point. Early low end gusty winds will decrease to 
5kts or less by 02z...backing slightly to south-southeast at many locations 
where not calm. Winds will become south-southwest-SW after 13z Monday with speeds 
7-10kts and low end gusts likely at blf/roa/bcb by late morning 
through the afternoon. 


Medium to high confidence in ceilings through the taf valid 
period. Medium to high confidence in visibilities through the taf 
valid period. Medium to high confidence wind speed/direction 
through the taf valid period. 


Extended aviation discussion... 


South-southwest winds will continue to bring increasing moisture 
levels into the region...especially west of the Blue Ridge Tuesday. 
Meanwhile...the upper-level will become increasingly favorable for 
showers/thunderstorms as disturbances emanate from a broad upper 
trough across the central/western U.S. Expect scattered 
showers/thunderstorms mainly through the I-77 corridor Tuesday 
afternoon...spreading further east across much of the County Warning Area 
Wednesday through the end of the week. Wednesday-Thursday at this point 
appear to be the most active days for thunderstorms...with some 
strong thunderstorms and heavy rain possible during this time 
frame. The threat for showers/thunderstorms may well linger for 
several subsequent days as a weak frontal boundary/baroclinic zone 
stall across the region with additional upstream energy remaining 
in place. 


Outside showers/thunderstorms...conditions should generally be VFR 
or MVFR at worst...but increasing likelihood of early morning 
IFR- LIFR conditions in br/fog and low clouds as moisture levels 
increase and late day showers leave wet ground in place.
