NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
450 am EDT Friday Jul 3 2015 


Synopsis... 
a low pressure system will move out of the Ohio Valley and into the 
middle Atlantic region. This will bring showers and thunderstorms to 
the area...along with continued cool temperatures...as we close out the 
workweek. Unfortunately our weather will remain unsettled...with a 
series of upper level disturbances bringing a chance for showers and 
thunderstorms the region throughout the Holiday weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 400 am EDT Friday... 


Short wave energy entering the mean upper trough over the eastern US will 
drive a wave of low pressure at the surface from the Ohio Valley to the 
middle Atlantic region. This will take the frontal boundary that pushed 
south of our area yesterday and drag it back northward as a warm front 
with weak high pressure wedging down the east side of the Appalachians. 
Early morning satellite and radar loops show that things are beginning 
to come together as the vigorous convection over Tennessee is beginning 
to move more toward the east/northeast...which is heading in our 
direction. 


This system has a lot going for it with good dynamic energy and a very 
moist airmass in place. Hodographs are small but show a significant 
amount of shear as would be expected in the vicinity of a frontal 
boundary. The missing ingredient for severe weather today is 
instability. Abundant cloud cover combined with the somewhat early 
onset time will limit daytime heating and model soundings in BUFKIT are 
showing a long and skinny cape presentation which does not favor 
vigorous updrafts. Based on these factors...currently anticipate a 
seasonable with upper 60s east to lower 60s west.Ealthy area of 
showers with embedded thunder will move across the area from west to 
east today with activity moving out and winding down this evening/early 
tonight. This situation will be monitored very closely since if the 
cloud cover is less than currently anticipated and we can generate 
greater amounts of instability...especially across the southern and 
eastern portions of the area...the severe threat will increase. With 
precipitable water values running well above normal heavy downpours can 
be expected...but the lack of widespread significant rainfall on 
Thursday has eased concern for flooding a bit so will not be issuing a 
Flood Watch with this package. Will continue to highlight the potential 
for heavy rain and possible Hydro issues in the severe weather potential statement. 


As the low moves off to our northeast tonight the frontal boundary will 
swing back through the region as a cold front. This will yield some 
lingering showers west of the Blue Ridge with some improvement to the 
east 


High temperatures today will continue on the cool side with readings in 
the lower 80s east of the ridge to the lower 70s west...and lows 
tonight range from the upper 60s east to lower 60s west. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Monday night/... 
as of 415 am EDT Friday... 


The broad upper trough plauging the eastern U.S. Will undergo 
some subtle modifications during this period. Sat-sun...the upper 
trough will take on a positive tilt as a short wave ridge builds 
into the Great Lakes/PA region. Meanwhile...the southern end 
becomes cutoff across the Carolinas and lingers across that region 
sun...then gradually drifts back northward into eastern Virginia Monday and 
northern Virginia Tuesday. Thus...the area remains unsettled and wet...but 
with a gradual shift of the better coverage of showers and 
thunderstorms toward the eastern part of the County Warning Area with time. 


For Saturday...yet again...potential for widespread showers and 
embedded thunderstorms to start off the day...just as has been the 
case the past two days. However...confidence in this is low at 
this point as it will largely be based on upstream convective 
complexes...track...and intensity. However...feel that confidence 
in ongoing precipitation at 12z is slightly greater than the past 
two days as the upper trough shifts east moving the current 
corridor of precipitation across the Tennessee Valley eastward into our 
region. The extent of clouds and precipitation in the morning will 
determine the degree of instability and hence convective coverage 
later in the day. Upper flow tends to become more southwest 
instead of northwest during this period given the transition of 
the weak upper low to the south of the region. This should be 
enough to support high chance to likely probability of precipitation into the 
afternoon/evening. Storm Prediction Center currently only has general thunder across 
the region given the lack of instability. With fairly wet 
antecedent conditions...the main concern will be heavy rainfall 
and localized flooding. However...it appears unlikely that ffg 
will be exceeded as rainfall amounts would need to exceed 2-2.5 
inches in 1-3 hours most locations for this to occur. Projected 
rainfall for the three day period today through Sunday is mostly 
1.5 to 2.5 inches. 


For Sunday...the weak upper low drifts back north into the County Warning Area. 
Widespread showers and thunderstorms appear likely...but the 
extensive cloud cover will again limit instability. Once 
again...localized heavy rainfall will be the main concern...but 
given that the heaviest rainfall should remain mostly east of the 
mountains...this further reduces concerns of flooding. 
However...the pattern does once again support likely probability of precipitation across 
much of the County Warning Area...especially eastern sections. 


Monday promises to be yet another wet day as the remnant upper low 
drifts into northern Virginia. Once again...the best coverage of 
precipitation should be across the eastern sections...but 
differential heating across the mountains should result in an 
uptick of afternoon convection there and further north compared 
to sun. Again...high chance to likely probability of precipitation appear in order. 
Instability once again appears marginal and the main concern will 
remain that of localized heavy rainfall. 


Maximum temperatures should remain well below normal through the period 
thanks to cloud cover and precipitation...with highs mostly in the 
70s...to lower 80s east if a few breaks in the overcast can occur. On 
the other hand...low temperatures will remain above normal thanks 
to high precipitable waters /dewpoints and considerable cloud cover. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Thursday/... 
as of 430 am EDT Friday... 


By Tuesday...there is fairly good agreement among the models that 
the cut off upper low lingering across the region will split in 
two...with the part across northern Virginia lifting northeast toward 
New York/New England...as the parent upper low sinks southward toward 
the Florida Panhandle/south Georgia. Meanwhile...a short wave and associated 
front will approach from the northwest by Tuesday...then drift 
into the region and stall Wed-Thu. At this point...Tuesday should be 
the day with the lowest probability of precipitation overall...and likely lower than any 
prior days or succeeding days. Once the front drifts into the 
region Wednesday and stalls...waves of low pressure will ride along the 
front and keep good chances of showers/thunderstorms across the 
region. However...compared to the current week with northwest 
flow...upper flow will be more west-southwest as broad upper 
ridging is noted across the southern states. Precipitation overall 
should be slightly more diurnal in nature...I.E...less 
nocturnal...as a result and temperatures will certainly be 
trending warmer...but remain mostly 70s mountains and 80s Piedmont 
as 850mb temperatures top out in the +16c to +18c range. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Friday through Tuesday/... 
as of 155 am EDT Friday... 


Not a high confidence forecast as the synoptic regime is making it 
difficult to pin down details and taf sites will experience a good 
deal of variability in conditions. Current radar shows limited 
shower activity that can be handled with vcsh at all sites except 
klyh where they should be dry through daybreak. Fog has been in 
and out at several sites and believe this will continue to be the 
case as cloud cover will limit radiational cooling and prohibit 
thick radiational fog from forming. At the same time low level 
moisture will be streaming in from the southwest so ceilings will be 
coming down and kblf may well be in cloud from time to time with 
LIFR visibility. 


The frontal boundary that has been wavering over the area for the 
past few days pushed to the south and has left the region with a 
developing wedge. As the upper trough sharpens today and short wave 
energy comes at US from the southwest...a surface low will move 
into the Ohio Valley and drag the front back to the north. This 
scenario will keep a good amount of cloud cover over the area and 
help limit instability. Believe the net result will be for a large 
area of showers with embedded thunder moving across from west to 
east this afternoon into this evening. 


As the low continues to move into the middle Atlantic region the 
boundary will come back southward as a cold front. This should 
allow for some improvement in conditions toward the end of the taf 
period east of the Blue Ridge with a light downslope wind...while 
kbcb/kblf/klwb see light upslope and deteriorating conditions. 


Extended aviation discussion... 


The region will remain in a general northwest flow pattern on 
Saturday...and again expect another round of showers and storms as 
another upper level disturbance passes across the forecast area. 
VFR conditions are expected for the most part. The exceptions will 
come as temporary decreases within any heavier rain showers or 
thunderstorms...and then late at night and early morning due to 
river or Mountain Valley fog...especially in areas that received 
precipitation the day before. 


Sunday into Monday...while upper level heights rise during the 
period...there remains an upper trough moving over the middle 
Atlantic during this time...so storms are never out of the 
forecast.
