NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
141 PM EDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
back door front sinks south into the Carolinas by tonight before 
eroding. High pressure to the north will again wedge south along 
the eastern slopes of the Appalachians Thursday. A strong cold 
front arrives later Friday followed by much cooler air for the 
weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 1225 PM EDT Wednesday... 


Visible satellite loops showed western edge of low clouds from 
Rockbridge County to near near Bedford to Reidsville at noon. The 
GOES r NSSL simulated WRF sky cover has much of the low cloud 
scattered out by 2pm. Still just beginning to see stratocumulus 
develop in the west where there has been more sunshine so far 
today. Have adjusted maximum temperature forecast based on these 
cloud trends. 


Local WRF data...sref and latest hrrr hold chance of rain in the 
far northeast and East Part of the forecast area for this 
afternoon and evening...mainly east of a Hot Springs to Lynchburg 
to Halifax line. Do not expect development of showers until 
19-20z/3-4pm. 


Tonight...the front dissipates leaving behind high pressure and 
semblance of another wedge. NAM/CMC again focusing more clouds in 
the eastern County Warning Area overnight. Forecast soundings are not as aggressive 
with dz but will keep some toward morning in the east along with 
fog. 


Lows tonight with not much change in airmass will range from the 
upper 40s across the valleys in the west with lower to middle 50s 
elsewhere. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday night/... 
as of 240 am EDT Wednesday... 


Surface ridge will be wedged south along the eastern slopes of the Blue 
Ridge early Thursday likely resulting in areas of low clouds along with 
some spotty drizzle and fog. However guidance again less optimistic 
about drizzle given very shallow nature to the moisture and early 
morning timing of bringing in the low deck. Thus trimmed back 
drizzle/fog coverage to mainly the Blue Ridge in Virginia and points 
east early on. Increasing shortwave ridging aloft should act to bump 
the surface ridge farther east during Thursday afternoon allowing 
mixing to scour out most of The Wedge as warming aloft kicks in. This 
should also push highs into the 75-80 range west and low/middle 80s east 
except cooler NE pending clouds. 


Ridging both surface and aloft will remain in place Thursday night 
ahead of the strong upstream 500 mb trough and its associated cold front that 
should remain well to the west through early Friday. Could see some 
isolated pre-frontal -shra work into the far SW late Thursday night 
with potential for the low level wedge to redevelop out east where some 
spotty drizzle even possible late. Otherwise any lift per ridging looks too 
weak to produce much so running basically dry with lows 50s to lower 
60s. 


Strong cold front approaches from the west Friday but looks to slow 
upon encountering the eastern ridge while the best dynamics pass well 
off to the north. Latest European model (ecmwf) remains the slowest given a bit more 
negative tilt as most other solutions bring the boundary into the west 
late Friday but dont clear the Piedmont until late Friday night. This 
suggests a need to slow onset of higher probability of precipitation down a few hours with the 
higher likely/Cat probability of precipitation over the mountains during the afternoon...then 
slowly working/developing east upon getting booted along by the 
approach of the Midwest 500 mb cold pool/speed maximum. However appears showers 
may linger out east well into the overnight with probability of precipitation finally tapering 
off in the Piedmont toward daybreak while redeveloping western ridges 
per increasing Post frontal upslope. Overall low topped severe threat 
looks marginal although a slower solution could act to enhance western 
instability Friday afternoon per better NAM cape values. However wind 
fields aloft and lapses appear weaker over the west and stronger east 
where likely offset via somewhat of a residual wedge until late. 
Therefore kept some thunder mention most spots and more in line with 
the stronger GFS solution. Slower timing should mean a bounce in high 
temperatures espcly east Friday where around 80 possible with most other spots 
in the 70s given a few more hours of insolation for now. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 310 PM EDT Tuesday... 


A cold front will be along the East Coast Saturday morning with 
drier cooler air moving in on west-northwest flow. High pressure 
along the Gulf and low pressure over New England will place a 
pressure gradient over the area Saturday. Breezy and gusty 
conditions through Saturday evening...then high pressure builds 
north into the region. High pressure will continue to track east 
along the Gulf over the weekend...shutting down any moisture 
returning into the region. Models are moving a middle level disturbance 
across the Ohio Valley Monday night into Tuesday. As this 
disturbance approaches the area...it will be hard-pressed to produce 
widespread showers due to a lack of moisture recovery. 


Temperatures will run 5f-10f cooler than normal over the weekend. 
Temperatures begin to moderate towards normal Monday and Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Wednesday through Monday/... 
as of 130 PM EDT Wednesday... 


Visible satellite loop showed stratus east of the Blue Ridge 
continuing to lift and become scattered early this afternoon. 
Expect VFR conditions at klyh at the beginning of the 18z taf 
forecast period. A weak short wave crossing through the middle 
Atlantic region may trigger isolated to scattered showers late 
this afternoon into this evening. The probability was too low at 
this time to include in the tafs. The most likely location for 
showers will be just north and east of klyh. 


Tonight...wedge expected to set up and looking at MVFR/IFR 
ceilings/visibilities reforming at lyh/Dan overnight. NSSL WRF and NAM BUFKIT 
forecast both showed redevelopment of the low clouds around 
07z/1am tonight. Fog again at bcb/lwb in the IFR/LIFR range late. 
High confidence that IFR conditions will persist until 13z/9am. 


Extended aviation discussion... 


Expect VFR Thursday afternoon into Thursday night. Frontal boundary and 
associated showers to impact the mountains by late Friday morning 
and the Piedmont in the afternoon. Sub VFR expected in heavier 
showers or isolated thunderstorms and rain. 


Showers exiting the mountains by late Friday evening and the Piedmont 
toward dawn Saturday. Timing of clearing is still tricky. 
Saturday should be clearing out in the Piedmont to 
Roanoke/Blacksburg but upslope MVFR ceilings at blf/lwb may occur into 
Sat afternoon...with breezy northwest winds. 


Winds diminish Saturday night. Then VFR Sunday. 


&& 


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