NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
444 am EDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
upper ridge will stay centered over the southern U.S. Today into 
tonight. A front will slide across our region Thursday...stalling 
along the southeast coast Friday into Saturday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 345 am EDT Wednesday... 


Ridge aloft remains anchored from the Desert Southwest into the 
lower MS valley and elongated toward the southern Appalachians. For 
our area will see a couple of weak vorts move east-southeast along the NE side 
of this ridge this afternoon into the evening. Am banking on ascent 
from differential heating...leftover boundaries and weak upper level 
disturbances for thunderstorms to fire up this afternoon in the 
mountains first...then drifting to the east-southeast to the Piedmont. The wind 
flow stays weak at 5-15 kts...so a few storms will have the 
potential for heavy rainers like Tuesday. Will maintain wording in 
the severe weather potential statement for localized flooding threat. 


Expect the humidity to stay elevated today keeping it feeling like 
the typical dog days of Summer. High temperatures will run from the lower 
to middle 80s west to upper 80s/around 90 east. 


Another weak wave may across US by 12z Thursday though think at this time 
will see limited showers overnight. Will see lingering convection in 
the evening before things fade around midnight. Lows will range from 
the upper 60s to lower 70s for most of the region. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Saturday night/... 
as of 415 am EDT Wednesday... 


Some subtle synoptic changes will lead to an end of the daily 
thunderstorm regime this period and also bring a period of 
respite from the higher dewpoints/relative humidity levels. The 
changes will be the result of a deep upper low tracking eastward 
across central into eastern Canada...forcing the strong 
subtropical ridge...which has been anchored across the Southern 
Plains for the past several days...to retrograde into the Desert 
Southwest. 


The cold front that will bring the change in air mass to the 
region will be on our western doorstep at 12z Thursday. As with the 
past several events...there will likely be an area of showers and 
isolated thunderstorms along and near the front at daybreak Thursday. 
This activity will be in a diminishing/decaying state...but will 
likely redevelop fairly quickly...depending on downstream cloud 
debris and subsequent morning heating...as the associated outflow 
boundary moves toward the Blue Ridge. Instability is meager for 
late July and dynamics are weak...but strong heating and precipitable waters  
nearing 2.00 inches east of the Blue Ridge should yield some 
fairly robust storms...also with locally heavy rainfall. Storm Prediction Center has 
continued to outlook areas mainly east of the Blue Ridge for a 
marginal risk of severe on Thursday. 


Convection should be diminishing and moving east of the area 
fairly quickly Thursday night. Some activity will likely linger across 
the Charlotte to Halifax County area of the Piedmont toward 
midnight...but after that it should all shift east of the County Warning Area. 


For the rest of the period...the front is still prognosticated by most of 
the synoptic-scale models to be pushed well south of the County Warning Area as 
the upper flow amplifies...with a strong upper ridge western U.S. 
And a deepening trough eastern U.S. Thus...the front should move 
to near central Georgia/central SC and toward the central NC coast 
before stalling. There are still indications that the tail end of 
the trough will become cutoff across south Georgia/Florida Panhandle...with 
an elongated trough axis stuck along the southeast to the NC 
coastline into early next week. Waves of convection will likely 
ride along and near this boundary...but all of this is expected to 
remain well south of our area. 


Cooling behind the front will be nominal at best...likely on a few 
degrees. 850mb temperatures are not expected to drop much below +20c 
through the period. More importantly...most of the models are in 
agreement that dewpoints will fall into the 50s across the 
mountains and 60s across the Piedmont...but will hover near 70 in 
the Danville area. This will be somewhat refreshing...but the late 
July/early August sun will still feel quite warm in the daytime. 
Expect min temperatures closer to normal...with maximum temperatures still likely 
averaging above normal through much of the period. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Tuesday/... 
as of 430 am EDT Wednesday... 


As noted above...models have finally come into good agreement in 
keeping any cutoff upper low/weakness/pseudo-tropical development along 
the southeast U.S. Coast well south of our region...eventually 
being pushed out to sea off the SC/NC coast. Some models...especially 
the European model (ecmwf)...try to push moisture into the far southeast part of 
the County Warning Area over the weekend...but most models suggest that any 
precipitation will remain further southeast. Have hedged on the 
far southeast corner with some low probability of precipitation...but have generally kept 
it rain free elsewhere. 


Northwest flow aloft will dominate the region as the upper trough 
remains in place across the eastern Canadian provinces. 
Eventually...a series of northwest flow disturbances appear 
destined to end the drier conditions expected Fri-sun. The first 
of these disturbances is slated to skirt the northern part of the 
County Warning Area Sun night/Mon. There is enough instability and moisture at 
that point to support isolated rain showers/thunderstorms and rain across the mountains and 
I-64 corridor...so added some low probability of precipitation. The next such disturbance 
should arrive toward the middle part of next week. Overall...the 
pattern is generally dry...with no widespread synoptic or 
meaningful rainfall events indicated for the period. 


Temperatures will be mostly near normal through the period...lows 
60s west to around 70 east...with highs 70s mountains and 80s 
elsewhere...creeping closer to 90 Piedmont as 850mb temperatures hover 
mostly in the +15c to +20c range through most of the period. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
as of 125 am EDT Wednesday... 


Rain showers have eroded over the region this morning. Cannot rule 
out a stray shower but too low chance to add to tafs. Fog will be 
the main concern as moisture resides in the low levels per rain 
and/or higher dewpoints. Some higher clouds are moving across the 
Piedmont into the Roanoke area...stretching toward lwb. Should see 
some clearing allowing fog to become dense at times at lwb. Not as 
confident on how low the visibilities go at the other sites...but think 
at least MVFR/IFR range except perhaps Roanoke...though they may 
slip to MVFR briefly prior to dawn. 


A weak frontal boundary will be north of the forecast area today. 
Once any fog/stratus Burns off by 14z will see scattered/broken cumulus/SC then 
towering cumulus/cumulonimbi in the mountains after 18z...and toward the Piedmont after 20z. 
Models favoring more coverage along and west of the Blue Ridge 
north toward the Shenandoah close to the front. Added thunderstorms in the vicinity at all 
sites except lyh/Dan for now for a few hours this afternoon. 


Any storms fade with loss of heating Wednesday evening with fog forming 
again by Thursday morning. 






Extended aviation forecast... 


More widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected on Thursday 
as a cold front crosses through region from the northwest. This 
front should push south of the area and allow for drier and mostly 
VFR conditions Friday through Sunday.
