NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
1105 am EDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will extend over the region into this afternoon. A 
weak cold front tracks southeast into our area by this 
evening...before stalling across the Carolinas and washing out on 
Wednesday. High pressure sets back up over the east by Friday with 
yet another cold front moving toward US this weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 1050 am EDT Tuesday... 


Getting higher dewpoints this morning and have upped these values 
into early afternoon. Narrow line of showers/storms moving across 
northern Kentucky with one vorticity lobe with main axis shifting across southeast ind to 
south of cvg. This afternoon will see plenty of instability with 
sunshine. Will not see any widespread threat of showers or storms 
until later in the day when the upper support moves into the mountains 
of WV. Until then increase in cumulus field over the mountains...with 
showers and storms developing after 1 PM...mainly isolated until 
after 4 PM. High temperature forecast on track looking at middle 80s west to 
lower to middle 90s southeast. Heat indices may approach 100 toward 
Farmville/Charlotte Court House. 


Previous valid discussion... 


Storm Prediction Center has placed the slight risk of severe storms to our west from 
Kentucky northward to New York with main threat damaging winds. 
Better instability and shear should remain along the western 
slopes of Appalachians. 


A weak cold front slides across the region tonight...and models 
push convection to the East Coast. Prefrontal convection will 
spread east from the mountains into the Piedmont. The NAM and GFS 
were faster compared to European model (ecmwf). Low temperatures tonight will 
remain mild with readings from the lower 60s in the mountains to 
the lower 70s in the Piedmont. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Friday night/... 
as of 415 am EDT Tuesday... 


Near term short wave will be located just east of the region at 
the beginning of this period...with a weak west-east oriented 
frontal boundary stalling just south of the Virginia/NC border as it 
encounters a persistent ridge of high pressure aloft...that 
overall will remain very persistent across the central and eastern 
states south of 40 degree latitude well into next week. Moisture and 
instability will never really be removed from the region behind 
the front...especially across the NC counties and into SW Virginia. By 
afternoon...expect showers/thunderstorms to redevelop across SW 
Virginia...northwest NC...and into the Piedmont of NC...slowly working north 
toward the Virginia Blue Ridge and into Southside Virginia. Extended range 
models in general agreement that drying will not progress as far 
south as indicated with yesterdays model runs...so have increased 
probability of precipitation further north sooner than earlier thought...especially across 
the SW counties. With 850mb temperatures hovering in the +18c to +20c 
range...cooling will be minimal if any...with maximum temperatures remaining 
a good 10 degrees above normal...with still 90s across the 
Piedmont and 80s elsewhere...except elevations above 3500 feet in 
the 70s. With the minimal precipitable water still running around 1.5 inch...min 
temperatures will not be cooling much either...remaining in the muggy 
60s. 


For Thursday...what is left of the front to the south washes out and 
returns north along with increasingly high moisture content from 
the south. The upper ridge expands northward again with 500mb 
heights closing in on 592dm across the region and 850mb temperatures in 
the +20 to +21c range. Only the lower sun angle is sparing US from 
more widespread 90s this late in the Summer. As indicated 
yesterday...the main focus for precipitation Thursday and Friday will be 
mainly along to east of the Blue Ridge where better moisture 
content prevails. This will be the pattern until the next upper 
short wave trough approaches from the northwest late Friday...but will 
not appreciably impact the County Warning Area until the weekend. Thus...for Thursday 
and Friday...scattered...typical summertime diurnal convection 
appears to be the rule...with the main focus along-east of the 
Blue Ridge. Temperatures will remain well above normal again. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Monday/... 
as of 430 am EDT Tuesday... 


The next in the series of upper short wave troughs will move into 
the region Saturday along with the associated cold front. The 
broad and strong subtropical upper ridge will persist across the 
southern states...but shows signs of weakening some and the center 
of which will relocate more toward the south central instead of 
the southeast states. This in response to the upper trough 
impinging on the northern fringes of the upper high Fri-Sat. 
However...once again...the front appears to stall across 
TN/NC...with deeper moisture/instability precariously close such 
that...at a minimum...probability of precipitation cannot be removed from the southern 
sections. By far at this point...the best chance for 
showers/thunderstorms will come with the front Friday night into 
Saturday. GFS/European model (ecmwf) at odds as to how much...if any drying from 
the north will penetrate the region into early next week...so 
have not made any changes to earlier advertised probability of precipitation beyond Sat. 
Temperatures will remain on the warm side and above normal. 850mb 
temperatures show a slight cooling into the +16c to +18c range over the 
weekend...but could surge back toward +20c early next week as the 
upper ridge amplifies back into the southeast/mid-Atlantic region 
and heights rise above 590dm once again. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
as of 735 am EDT Tuesday... 


Overall VFR should prevail this morning at the taf locations with 
extensive middle/high clouds spreading across the region from the 
west in advance of the next upper short wave/front. Do not expect 
much precipitation until later in the afternoon as the front 
approaches. In the 18z-22z time frame...expect broken line of 
convection...possibly a few strong cells...to reach eastern WV 
including blf/lwb taf sites. Gusty winds and potentially brief 
period of MVFR ceilings/visibilities in thunderstorms and rain during this time frame. 
However...confidence too low to include in a prevailing group at 
this point. Further east...potential for convection will be later 
and even less certain. Thus...for now have opted for prob30 or 
thunderstorms in the vicinity with mostly VFR ceilings. Several models hint at potential for 
convection redeveloping or lingering across the Piedmont during 
the late evening/early overnight hours. Fog development overnight 
also uncertain as much potential will depend on how much rain 
occurs during the evening and also clearing...if any overnight. 
Most models show dense middle clouds remaining. Low clouds will 
likely develop in upslope areas west of the Alleghany front with 
potential MVFR ceiling after 06z blf-lwb. Winds...mostly SW-west-southwest 7-10kts 
with low end gusts west of the Alleghany front possible through 
the daytime. 


Medium to high confidence in ceilings...visibilities and winds 
through the taf valid period. 


Extended aviation discussion... 


Front settles closer Tuesday night into Wednesday...when better 
coverage of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain is expected. However low confidence on the 
timing and southward position of the boundary on Wednesday at this 
point pending pre-frontal coverage from Tuesday night. For now appears 
mainly VFR outside of early morning fog Wednesday...then periods 
of MVFR Wednesday afternoon especially southern sections...and 
mainly across the south/southwest Thursday afternoon for more 
isolated nature coverage. Front washes out to the south of the 
area Friday with more widely scattered diurnal nature showers and 
storms...then perhaps becoming more widespread Saturday with 
periodic MVFR in more organized coverage ahead of another cold 
front arriving from the northwest late. Otherwise will see a daily 
trend of early MVFR/IFR in fog...followed by brief VFR...then 
increasing afternoon/evening convection when MVFR to local IFR 
will be possible.

Equipment... 
as of 730 am EDT Friday ... 


The visibility sensor at kdan...Danville Regional Airport...will 
be out of service until further notice. A part has been back-ordered.
