NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
733 am EDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Synopsis... 
a weak cold front will move south into the region today and stall 
across North Carolina tonight. Friday and Saturday the front will 
lift well north of the area. Broad high pressure centered off the 
coast will be over the region Sunday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 430 am EDT Thursday... 


Cold front extend from Delaware to southern Kentucky early this 
morning. Moisture was pooled along the front. Surface dew points 
were in the middle to upper 60s along the boundary and the 
precipitable water value at Blacksburg has climbed to near 1.3 
inches. North of the front dew points drop off into the 50s across 
the Great Lakes and into Pennsylvania. 


The front moves south today and will stall around the 
Virginia/North Carolina border this evening. The best chance of 
showers and thunderstorms will be along and south of the front. 
Models were not showing much convergence along the front. There 
will be enough sun today that convective available potential energy may reach 1500 j/kg in the 
southern County Warning Area. Most likely time frame for scattered 
thunderstorms will be from 18z/2pm to 03z/11pm. 


Some fog may still develop in the New River valley...near Smith 
Mountain Lake and through the Dan River basin this morning where 
there is not as much cloud cover. Any fog will mix out by middle 
morning. Cloud cover will also impact maximum temperatures for 
today. Stayed close to mav guidance for highs. 


Main corridor of higher relative humidities and moves little 
tonight. Clouds and milder dew points will hold temperatures 
across the south in the 60s. Sref and local WRF had dew points in 
the extreme northern County Warning Area dropping into the 50s 
tonight. If this area clears out enough temperatures will drop 
into the middle to upper 50s. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Saturday night/... 
as of 245 am EDT Thursday... 


Friday start with an area of high pressure over New England and the 
Middle Atlantic States. Aloft...a ridge of high pressure will be 
centered over the southeastern states stretching north over the middle 
Atlantic region. Over the forecast area...a stall frontal boundary 
will be in the vicinity of the NC/Virginia border. Through Friday 
afternoon and night...both high pressure systems will drift 
east...while the frontal boundary retreats north as a warm front. 
With an increase in moisture and afternoon heating...this frontal 
boundary will be the focus for afternoon and evening showers and 
thunderstorms. Temperatures Friday will be influence mainly by the 
upper level ridge over the southeast and will warm above normal for 
the majority of the area. Locations from the southern Shenandoah 
Valley to the Virginia Piedmont will remain under the influence of the 
surface high through much of Friday. As long as this area maintains 
an easterly wind...temperatures will remain below normal. By the end 
of the day...expecting frontal boundary to be north of the forecast 
area...allowing northern counties to have a late day surge in 
temperatures. Friday afternoon temperatures will range from the l/M 
80s west to M/u 80s east. 


The northern and southern jet streams are split on Saturday. The 
northern stream features a low pressure system that will track east 
from the Great Lakes to New England. The upper level ridge over the 
southeastern states will block any southern stream systems from 
advancing east through the period. The outer rings of this ridge 
start at the Texas Gulf Coast...to the Tennessee Valley...and over 
the central Appalachians. Short waves with tropical moisture will 
track on these outer rings...increasing the chances for showers and 
thunderstorms late Saturday into Saturday night. The best chance for 
areawide rain looks to be Sunday. With only scattered storms 
expected Saturday and mainly over the mountains...temperatures will 
warm into the M/u 80s with the Piedmont warming into the l90s. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
as of 345 PM EDT Wednesday... 


Deep Gulf moisture flowing north along the appalachian chain will 
maintain a chance of showers and thunderstorms each day for the 
early half of next week. 


For Sunday...rainfall is looking increasingly likely as an 
upper level trough moves up the Ohio River valley. With 
perceptible water values in the ballpark of 2 inches across our 
area...believe that locally excessive rainfall will be possible in 
some areas... especially if storms begin to pass repeatedly over 
the same locations. 


On Monday...upper level flow begins to transition to a more west to 
east orientation...with no strong disturbances expected. Believe 
shower and thunderstorm activity will be more driven by daytime 
heating than anything else...meaning rainfall will be more of the 
hit and miss variety. 


Looking to Tuesday...expect a slightly better chance of showers and 
thunderstorms as a cold front approaches our region from the 
northwest. Best chances for shower and thunderstorm activity will be 
during the evening as the front approaches the Ohio River...however 
with no real push of cold air behind the front...it is entirely 
possible that the Ohio River is as far south as the front sinks. 


Abundant Gulf moisture will make for muggy and warm conditions for 
the early half of next week. Look for highs to range from the upper 
70s/low 80s across the mountains...to the upper 80s across the 
Piedmont. Overnight lows will range from the middle 60s to low 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Thursday through Monday/... 
as of 730 am EDT Thursday... 


Satellite pictures showers stratus over a large part of West 
Virginia this morning along the western slopes of the 
Appalachians. The edge of this IFR to LIFR cloud cover was near 
kblf and just west of klwb. Expect a slow improvement in ceilings 
up to VFR by afternoon. 


Weak surface cold front stretched across Virginia and Kentucky 
this morning. This front will become stationary across North 
Carolina tonight. Winds north of the boundary will become north to 
northeast today. 


Convergence along the front will trigger scattered showers and 
thunderstorms this afternoon. Storms will develop vicinity of the 
Virginia/NC border this afternoon...then drift southeast into North 
Carolina. For now have left any showers and thunderstorms out of 
the kdan and kbcb tafs. Higher confidence of showers and 
thunderstorms from 18z/2pm through 03z/11pm south of these 
airports. 


Extended discussion... 
the weak front is forecast to return north as a warm front 
Friday. Widely scattered rain showers/thunderstorms and rain are expected along this 
boundary Friday and Saturday...with the greatest coverage during 
the peak heating of the day. Where rain showers/thunderstorms and rain occur expect brief 
periods of sub VFR conditions. 


An area of low pressure is forecast to move through the Great 
Lakes Saturday night and Sunday...the associated cold front 
trailing south and moving across the Ohio/Tennessee valleys. Showers and 
thunderstorms will likely be associated with this front...this 
activity spreading east into the central Appalachians Sunday and 
Monday. Shower coverage Sunday/Monday is expected to be more 
widespread as compared to Friday and Saturday. 


&& 


Equipment... 
as of 730 am EDT Thursday ... 


The visibility sensor at kdan...Danville Regional Airport...remains 
out of service. A part has been ordered. Repairs will be done this Friday.
