NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
313 am EDT Friday Sep 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
a backdoor cold front will approach the region from the north 
today before sliding through the area later tonight into 
Saturday. Increasing moisture ahead of the boundary will lead to 
more widespread coverage of showers and storms later today into 
this evening. High pressure will wedge in from the northeast 
Saturday into Sunday...and remain in place through early next 
week...resulting in somewhat cooler weather over the Holiday 
weekend. 
&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 220 am EDT Friday... 


Weak high pressure over the area early this morning will give way to 
increasing moisture advection this afternoon ahead of a backdoor cold 
front that will drift south into northern Virginia by this evening. This along 
with a piece of middle level shortwave energy in the Ohio Valley that should 
scoot southeast just ahead of the boundary and interact with moist 
precipitable waters /strong instability to result in areas of deep convection 
later on. 


Most models suggest initial development along the Blue Ridge aided by 
developing low level NE flow ahead of the shortwave and along an axis 
of prognosticated higher 850 mb Theta-E. However a few solutions including ensembles 
suggest a secondary area of better coverage out across the Piedmont 
where approach of the shortwave and folding of the front east of the 
mountains may induce a weak wave over the southeast. Thus trended 
likely probability of precipitation a bit more toward the eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge 
by middle afternoon...and then shifted south toward northwest NC/Southside 
Virginia where guidance shows stronger pre-frontal convergence late per 
prognosticated higher precipitable waters  coming in line with the wave. Otherwise 
running with decent chance probability of precipitation elsewhere although severe potential 
limited by weak shear and moist soundings overall. However given 
the degree of heating with highs again likely pushing 90 Blue 
Ridge and points southeast...some downburst potential with any organized 
slow moving cluster of storms. 


Axis of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain may again organize more over the Piedmont and southern 
sections before sliding SW this evening well ahead of the front and 
prior to the exodus of the wave aloft. This should allow enough coverage 
for continued likely probability of precipitation southeast...and chance elsewhere before 
loss of heating and exiting lift cause west bound convection to become 
more shallow overnight. Appears best coverage after midnight to end 
up over the southern/SW sections along the nose of the developing wedge 
where will be getting more of a east/southeast trajectory including low level 
focus along the front. May even see a bit of drying far NE sections 
late tonight and over the far west with downslope...otherwise looking 
at range from low chances north to higher chances SW late. Expect overall 
cloudy skies and lingering moist dewpoints to hold temperatures up despite 
low level cool advection so stayed with mostly 60s for lows. 
&& 


Short term /Saturday through Monday/... 
as of 300 am EDT Friday... 


A hybrid wedge will remain along the East Coast over the weekend. 
This wedge will be centered off the New England coast and will 
stretch south into Georgia. With weak isentropic lift...easterly 
flow and Atlantic moisture...mostly cloudy skies are expected. 
Rain/drizzle is also possible along the Blue Ridge each period and 
over the Piedmont during the afternoon and evening hours. The parent 
surface ridge drifts east on Monday...leaving a baggy high over the 
middle Atlantic region. This will keep a chance for light rain/drizzle 
along and east of the Blue Ridge into Monday night. Some dry air may 
be able to advect into the region as a possible closed low forms 
over northern Florida. 


Temperatures will be tricky with a wedge in play over the weekend 
and into early next week. Easterly flow will keep afternoon 
temperatures a few degrees cooler than normal but help warm the west 
with downslope flow. Isentropic lift will keep the area cloudy but 
there could be a few breaks in the clouds during the 
afternoon...only to fill back in during the evening. These clouds 
and any rain falling could cool afternoon temperatures 5f-8f cooler 
than normal. As of this forecast package...confidence is not high 
for an all day rain event and any breaks in the rain or clouds will 
allow temperatures to warm. With continued cloudiness...temperatures 
will run muggy and warmer than normal each night. 
&& 


Long term /Monday night through Thursday/... 
as of 100 PM EDT Thursday... 


Starting with a broad upper low over the southeast United States and 
a strong ridge in the Southern Plains by Monday night. 500 mb 
heights fall over the northeast United States Monday night through 
Wednesday. By Thursday the northern stream becomes more dominant 
with more troughing across all of the east. 


At the surface and low levels forecast area will be in a deep wedge 
covering the east side of the Appalachians into Monday night with 
east to southeast winds. The Wedge will break down on Tuesday. 
Then southwest flow will bring a return of moisture and warmer 850 
mb temperatures Tuesday night and Wednesday. 


A well defined cold front and the leading edge of cooler air will 
reach the forecast area on Thursday. Waves of low pressure along the 
front in the central United States may slow down the timing and the 
eastward movement of the front for Wednesday and Thursday. 
Temperatures will again be above normal in the warm sector ahead of 
the cold front on Wednesday and Thursday. 
&& 


Aviation /07z Friday through Tuesday/... 
as of 100 am EDT Friday... 


Fog/stratus the main aviation concern again overnight with 
IFR/LIFR likely to develop in the valleys and in spots where 
afternoon rainfall occurred namely at kbcb/klwb. Otherwise looking at 
spotty MVFR in fog with only some middle deck around where stratus 
does not develop. 


A backdoor cold front will sink south toward the area on Friday 
preceded by onshore flow and strong instability. This combined 
with weak energy aloft to the northwest should lead to more widespread 
convection from midday into Friday evening. Appears best coverage 
early on will be along the Blue Ridge with a gradual shift east 
once the boundary slides south. Think enough potential to include 
a prevailing rain showers group with embedded thunderstorms in the vicinity at most locations along 
and east of the Blue Ridge and thunderstorms in the vicinity in southeast West Virginia for now. Showers 
may linger espcly south into the evening so kept mention in past 
sunset. Otherwise looking at mainly VFR cumulus fields by late 
morning...with 4-6k feet cumulus ceilings into the afternoon with MVFR/IFR 
where bands/clusters of storms develop. Strong winds will also be 
possible in the vicinity of storms but will hold off including 
within the tafs for now given uncertainty in strength/coverage 
later on. 


Extended aviation discussion... 


Will see a weak flow pattern with an upper trough extending from 
east-west over our area Saturday into Sunday. This along with 
high pressure to the northeast will cause the low level flow to 
turn more easterly in time. As of now...the terminals will be VFR 
during the day...with possible MVFR or worse with fog at night 
into Friday night. The easterly flow expected by Saturday will 
bring lower clouds in and potential for MVFR ceilings at least for the 
mountains...and low end VFR at kroa/klyh/kdan. With this upper 
trough there will be a daily threat of showers...so sub VFR in 
these will be possible. 


By Sunday-Monday the weak trough aloft moves over the southeast 
coast while upper ridging elongates over the middle Atlantic. We will 
see some drying take place so VFR should occur Sunday-Tuesday with 
the still a threat of fog at night at kbcb/klwb. 
&& 


Hydrology... 
as of 745 PM EDT Thursday... 


The weekly United States drought monitor issued on September 3rd 
shows the effect of a drier than normal August across much of the 
area. Abnormally dry conditions...d0 on the drought scale have 
been expanded into a large portion of Southside Virginia covering 
much of the Dan and lower Roanoke River basins. Parts of the upper 
Yadkin River basin in North Carolina are already in d1 or moderate 
drought. August rainfall was as low as 50 percent of normal or 
less in parts of the aforementioned areas. Several National Weather Service cooperative 
climate stations in southern Virginia recorded well under 2 inches 
of rain the entire month of August including Huddleston in Bedford 
County at 1.17 inches and Rocky Mount in Franklin County at 1.36 
inches.
