Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 7:00 am EDT on April 27, 2015


... This is air quality awareness week...

This week Marks the beginning of ozone season for many areas in the
United States.

Each day of air quality awareness week will feature a unique topic relevant
to education and preparedness.

Today we highlight two types of air pollution: ozone and particle
pollution... these are two common pollutants found in many parts of
the country.

Ozone is a colorless odorless gas. It is the same gas that is found
in the ozone layer... high in the earth's stratosphere... where it
protects US from the sun's ultraviolet energy. But at ground level
where we live... ozone pollution is unhealthy to breathe. Particle
pollution... or airborne particle pollution... consists of microscopic
particles in the air. Depending on where you live... it can be a
problem in the winter and/or Summer. Like ozone... particle pollution
is not healthy to breathe. The particles also contribute to haze
which blurs The View in many cities and National Parks.

Tomorrow we will learn how these pollutants form and create poor air
quality conditions.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
953 am EDT Monday Apr 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
an upper disturbance moves across the area today into this 
evening keeping the region in a cool air mass. Low pressure over 
Texas will shift east into the Gulf Coast states and Tennessee Valley to 
bring our next round of rain by midweek. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 950 am EDT Monday... 


Visible satellite imagery shows abundant sunshine across the 
region this morning which is a most welcome sight after such a 
dreary weekend. However...the water vapor loop shows a vigorous 
short wave rotating around the upper low anchored over the 
northeast US. This short wave will move out of the Great Lakes 
and be on our doorstep by early this evening. Moisture is limited 
but should be sufficient to combine with lift out ahead of the 
short wave and instability generated by strong sunshine under the 
pool of cold air aloft to generate some showers and possibly an 
isolated rumble of thunder mainly across the far north from the 
Greenbrier valley into the Alleghany Highlands. With the cold pool 
aloft it would not be surprising to see some graupel with some of 
the more substantial showers. 


The rest of the forecast area looks to be in good shape with 
clouds decreasing east of the Blue Ridge into the Piedmont. Low 
level winds are not very impressive but the boundary layer will be 
well mixed this afternoon so still expect breezy conditions after 
the inversion breaks late this morning. High temperatures will be 
considerably warmer this afternoon than this past weekend but will 
still be running 10 degrees below normal. 


Previous discussion... 


Tonight...this shortwave exits and showers diminish over the mountains 
and winds will subside somewhat. Skies clear so temperatures should be 
dropping toward the middle to upper 30s mountains...to around 40 across 
the Piedmont. Issue tonight will be frost/freeze potential. Have 
only the highest ridges of southeast WV/Montana Rogers close to 32f. While a 
few pocket of frost are possible...think enough of a gradient 
inhibits frost formation. Those who live in deeper/sheltered 
valleys will be prone to frost. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday night/... 
as of 300 am EDT Monday... 


GFS/European model (ecmwf) were similar in bringing the upper low slowly east from 
the OK/Texas area Tuesday morning into the Tennessee Valley by Wednesday morning. At 
the surface...low pressure will ride along the Gulf Coast Tue-Wed...then 
shift off the Georgia coast by Wednesday evening. While this occurs a northern 
stream trough moves across the Great Lakes and just north of US. 
Models keep these two streams split...but enough of inverted trough 
in the area plus Atlantic flow to throw rainfall into area by 
Tuesday night...and especially into Wednesday. Nudged probability of precipitation up and 
have categorical probability of precipitation along the Blue Ridge south of Roanoke 
Wednesday with high chance probability of precipitation from the Greenbrier valley to the 
Piedmont northeast of lyh. As we head into Wednesday night the GFS 
becomes more amplified and stronger with the northern low than other 
guidance...and therefore drives the trough further south and brings 
the surface low NE along the NC coast. The European model (ecmwf) more open will take the 
low further out to sea. At this time...am compromising the two and keeping 
higher probability of precipitation over the southeast County Warning Area Wednesday night. 


Highs are expected to stay below normal with Wednesday appearing the 
coolest...though the eastern County Warning Area may stay mild enough with middle 
60s...while the Blue Ridge south of Roanoke only gets into the upper 
40s to middle 50s...and could be cooler if rain moves in faster. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 330 PM EDT Sunday... 


While there are still differences in timing...the long range models 
show a similar solution of lifting the deep eastern U.S. Trough to 
the east and slowly building an upper ridge across the Ohio Valley 
by the end of the weekend. 


The GFS appears overdone and too far north with its placement of the 
axis of heavy rain in our forecast area. Obviously this will need to 
be monitored...but leaned toward the European model (ecmwf) and Canadian solutions of 
keeping the axis of heaviest rain closer to the forecast position of 
the surface low in the southern Carolinas. 


Wrap around moisture will keep clouds...much cooler than normal 
temperatures...and light precipitation through Thursday and Thursday night. With 
the deepening coastal surface low...and passing of a weak upper vorticity 
lobe on the west side of the upper trough axis...bumped up winds late 
Thursday and Friday...but nothing that appears to warrant headlines 
at this time. 


As the deep surface low continues to move northeast...we should finally 
see some clearing Friday...then temperatures closer to average for early 
may by the weekend. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Monday through Friday/... 
as of 725 am EDT Monday... 


Some fog this morning has impacted blf/lwb and even in lyh. Think 
the fog will be gone shortly with VFR expected through most of the 
day. Some broken 4kft ceilings near blf will also clear out in the next 
two hours. 


The winds will be mixing in after 14z...from the northwest with some 
gusts to 20-25 kts this afternoon. Upstream disturbance looks to 
bring VFR ceilings to the mountains...and perhaps roa/lyh this afternoon. 


The forecast will keep VFR ceilings at all sites even after passage of 
this wave. The GFS is showing low ceilings at blf tonight in the northwest 
flow...but the moisture expected to be hindered by drier air...so 
for now keeping optimistic VFR at blf. 






Extended aviation discussion... 
VFR conditions are expected through Tuesday before conditions 
worsen once by late Tuesday night. Models were speeding up 
moisture into the area...especially south of a blf-Dan line by Wednesday 
morning. At this time...the GFS is most aggressive in hanging the storm 
back closer to the coast into Friday which could keep the area 
socked into sub VFR weather longer. The European model (ecmwf) is more 
progressive...and all in all looks like Wednesday-Thursday are sub VFR 
days...with some improvement Friday. 


&&

Virginia...none. 
NC...none. 
WV...none.
