NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
341 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
an upper trough of low pressure will retrograde west to the 
Mississippi River valley...and the center of surface high pressure 
will shift to our east. The result through the weekend and into 
the early part of next week will be an increased chance of showers 
and storms across our region starting on Thursday. 
Currently...Friday into Saturday looks to be the time window with 
the greatest potential for the entire area. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
as of 320 PM EDT Wednesday... 


We will continue to watch to potential areas of convection heading 
into the early evening hours. The one will be centered just 
southeast of the forecast area...but its influence may be extend far 
enough north for some isolated showers and storms in areas 
around...east and south of Danville Virginia through roughly 800 PM. The 
other area will be in association with some instability that has 
developed just west of the southeast Wes Virginia portion of the 
forecast area. While areas around and west of Lewisburg WV may see a 
stray shower between now and roughly 500 PM...chances will increase 
as we approach 700 PM. A disturbance with an area of steep lapse 
rate air is currently moving through Ohio...and should be 
approaching the area toward the early evening. Both the hrrr and rnk 
WRF-arw offer solutions that bring the activity to our doorstep and 
then have it dissipate. Have allowed for the potential for some 
isolated thunderstorms this evening in areas near and north of 
Interstate 64 in WV and Virginia. Other isolated showers will be possible 
near the crest of the Blue Ridge from the late afternoon into the 
early evening. While instability is not strong in this 
area...convergence within this area may be enough for a few showers 
to form. The main focus will be across the far northwest and far 
southeast parts of the region. 


A high pressure ridge axis was situated west-east across the area 
currently. Easterly flow on the south side of this feature has 
helped advect higher dew points in the lower 60s back toward the 
area as close as Roxboro NC and South Hill Virginia. The center of the 
high is prognosticated to start shifting eastward tonight. This will help 
allow for a gradual trend towards low level winds with a greater 
southerly component across the region. In turn...higher dew point 
air is expected to continue its progression towards and then into 
the area. By daybreak Thursday...some of this moisture will become 
banked against the crest of the Blue Ridge with increased cloud 
cover over northwest North Carolina and neighboring sections of 
southwest Virginia. Low temperatures tonight should be milder as 
compared to those of this morning. Readings around 50 to the lower 
50s are expected across the mountains with a mix of middle to upper 50s 
across the Piedmont. A few spots across Southside Virginia and 
neighboring north central North Carolina can expect lows around 60. 
Of our six climate sites...Lewisburg has the potential of being 
close to a record low tonight. See the climate section of this 
discussion for details. 


On Thursday...the trend towards east-southeast low level flow and greater 
moisture will continue. Increasing clouds will be the norm 
throughout the day with upslope rain showers developing and growing 
in coverage. The greatest concentration will be across the northern 
mountains of North Carolina...northeast along the crest of the Blue 
Ridge to near Floyd Virginia. High temperatures will range from the middle 
70s to around 80 in the mountains to the low to middle 80s across the 
Piedmont. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
as of 330 PM EDT Thursday... 


Models consistent bringing a short wave through the southwest flow 
aloft Thursday night through Friday night. Thursday night and Friday 
there is also some support from the diffluent area of the upper jet. 
May keep probability of thunderstorms low since guidance is showing 
little cape and instability over much of the forecast area. By 
Friday morning...precipitable water values will be back in the 1.0 
to 1.5 inch range with surface dew points in the 60s. Wpc 24 hour 
quantitative precipitation forecast from 12z Friday to 12z Saturday of 0.25 to 0.50 inches looks 
reasonable. However...models do not have a particularly good 
consensus of where the heaviest amounts will be. Easterly component 
of low level winds favors the eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge. 
Putting the highest probability of precipitation in from late 
Thursday night through late morning on Friday. 


Wide range in guidance for maximum temperatures on Friday. With all 
the clouds and precipitation expected...have trended toward the 
cooler bias corrected mav numbers. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 330 PM EDT Thursday... 


Front at the surface remains along the coast Saturday night through 
Monday. On Tuesday and Wednesday...a cold front will push into the 
region from the northwest. 


Until this front GOES through...there will be a daily threat of 
showers and thunderstorms each afternoon and evening. Challenging to 
narrow down which day of time frame will be more favorable for 
precipitation...although models suggest a short wave coming through 
the Ohio Valley on Sunday may bring a more organized area of showers 
and thunderstorms to the County Warning Area. 


Pocket of warmer 850 mb air with +20 temperatures comes out of the 
Mississippi Valley...reaching the forecast area on Wednesday based 
on the European model (ecmwf). 


&& 


Aviation /20z Wednesday through Monday/... 
as of 100 PM EDT Wednesday... 


High confidence in light winds through the taf period. 
Medium/high confidence VFR east of the Blue Ridge. 
Medium confidence VFR yielding to MVFR/IFR in fog/stratus tonight 
west of the Blue Ridge. 


Weather this taf period should be quite similar to what we had 
yesterday as energy rotates around the upper trough and combines 
with instability in the cold pool of air to produce a good cumulus field 
and some isolated showers...especially from the Blue Ridge westward. 
Believe the cumulus will be a VFR scattered v broken type situation. Will lean 
optimistic and keep scattered except for kblf/klwb where broken will be 
more likely due to proximity to short wave energy. Will also keep 
tafs dry since extent of any showers will be quite limited. 


Expecting another round of MVFR/IFR fog and stratus overnight for 
klwb/kblf/kbcb but if cumulus/SC cloud deck lingers it may delay onset 
and ultimately limit extent of fog/stratus. Will choose to go with 
quicker cumulus/SC dissipation this evening/tonight and more aggressive 
fog/stratus overnight. Moisture will be on the increase from the south 
tomorrow as more short wave energy rounds the base of the upper trough 
but any significant affects look to be beyond this taf issuance. 


Extended aviation discussion... 
a broad trough of low pressure will be across the eastern United 
States through Sunday. However...it will start centered over the 
region...and then retrograde west to near the Mississippi River by 
Sunday. This transition will allow for better chances of 
showers...and perhaps a few thunderstorms...to occur across the 
region as Atlantic moisture will be able to work its way into the 
area. Appears coverage will be more isolated on Thursday with 
lingering overall VFR...then increasing from Friday into the 
weekend as a deeper southerly trajectory starts to develop. Along 
with this moisture will come better chances for sub-VFR 
conditions...especially under any heavier shower or storm that 
forms...but also during the overnight hours as boundary layer 
moisture gets trapped under the nocturnal inversion.
