NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
500 am EDT Monday may 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure both surface and aloft will remain over the eastern 
United States today. This will ensure dry weather for the 
remainder of the Holiday weekend with temperature and humidity 
trending higher. Deeper moisture will return to the area by 
Tuesday...with showers and thunderstorms developing Tuesday... 
becoming more widespread across the region Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 500 am EDT Monday... 


Southerly winds on western periphery of departing anticyclone 
will gradually advect low level moisture northward into the 
mountains of North Carolina and far southwest Virginia today. 
This will permit increasing cloudiness over our far southwest County Warning Area 
today with the potential for late afternoon and evening showers 
west of Interstate 77. The remainder of the County Warning Area will continue to 
bask in sunshine per lingering subsidence. Temperatures this 
afternoon are expected to reach into the 80s...with the exception 
of the NC mountains and Highlands of Virginia/WV where temperatures will top 
out in the 70s. 


Deeper moisture will overspread the remainder of the region 
tonight into Tuesday...clouds increasing. Dewpoints will be 
trending up...promoting higher humidity and higher night-time 
temperatures. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Thursday night/... 
as of 400 am EDT Monday... 


Looking at a very summerlike weather pattern for the middle of the 
week as the upper level ridge which made for abundant sunshine this 
weekend shifts east...leaving the middle Atlantic exposed to a series 
of upper level disturbances approaching from the lower Mississippi 
Valley. Southerly windflow in the low levels will also be firmly 
established by Tuesday...returning deep Gulf moisture northward 
along the appalachian chain...which will push perceptible water 
values in the 1.3 to 1.6 inch range for much of the period. Such 
moisture will provide the fuel necessary...when interacting with 
the upper level disturbances...to trigger scattered showers and 
thunderstorms each day. 


On Tuesday...will keep an eye on an inverted trough passing just 
west of our area which will support showers and thunderstorms...more 
so for the mountains during the afternoon...with some of this 
activity spilling into the Piedmont during the evening. On 
Wednesday...an upper level trough will shift east across the Great 
Lakes...pushing an associated weak cold front toward the Ohio River 
where it will eventually stall. The increased low level convergence 
ahead of the front and greater instability aloft will allow for more 
widespread coverage of convection. Another upper level ridge is 
expected to develop Thursday as a trough digs across the 
intermountain west. Increased stability aloft combined with winds 
becoming more westerly/downslope will keep shower and thunderstorm 
activity a little less developed/more spotty in nature. 


Do not see any strong signals for organized severe thunderstorm 
activity during the period...however cannot rule out a few strong to 
severe storms developing during each afternoon and evening areawide. 
Also...with a very moist atmosphere and upper level winds expected 
to become light by the middle of the week...will have to watch for 
areas of heavy rain due to slow moving storms...which may produce 
localized flash flooding. 


Stuck close to mav guidance for temperatures...which are expected to 
range from the upper 70s/low 80s across the mountains...to the middle 
80s further east each day. Overnight temperatures will range from 
the upper 50s/low 60s west...to the middle 60s east. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Sunday/... 
as of 445 am EDT Monday... 


A very warm and muggy period more reminiscent of Summer looks to 
prevail for late week into next weekend as a moist south/SW flow 
persists between high pressure offshore and upper troffiness to the 
northwest. This...provided strong heating...should result in at least 
diurnal showers and storms espcly over the mountains where aided by 
orographics and differential heating. 


Upper heights will slowly flatten next weekend as another 500 mb trough 
starts to sink south from the upper Midwest with its associated cold 
front likely oozing toward the area by Sunday. Models differ on how 
fast this boundary pushes southeast with the earlier ec more hung up to the 
northwest per waves along the front...while the GFS more backdoor fashion 
and faster. However appears that the boundary will be close enough 
to produce more widespread showers/storms Sunday afternoon espcly 
northern/western sections...with more scattering Saturday outside of 
the northwest where more organized pre-frontal bands could drop in late. 


Otherwise overall trend of early fog to becoming pc during the day 
with more clouds by Sunday...and diurnal chance probability of precipitation...except some 
likely probability of precipitation west later in the weekend. Expect temperatures to slowly climb 
each day with highs possibly touching 90 out east over the weekend 
with mainly 80s elsewhere. Lows look quite warm and muggy..only in 
the 60s at best given moisture around. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Monday through Friday/... 
as of 230 am EDT Monday... 


VFR expected to continue through the taf valid period...although 
some subtle signs of bigger changes to take place through the 
week...will become evident this taf valid period. The upper ridge 
centered over the region will continue to drift slowly east 
through today...moving toward the coast by Tuesday. A broad 
diffluent upper trough encompasses much of the U.S. West of the 
Mississippi River...and this will be expanding farther east 
through the middle part of the week. A series of upper short waves 
will track from the middle-south to the northeast Mon-Wed...each 
breaking down the upper ridge and forcing it to shift farther 
east. Low-level moisture will be on the increase with southwest 
flow around a Bermuda high. This will result in increasing cumulus 
development in the 040-060 range Monday afternoon with periods of broken 
cloud bases possible during the afternoon...especially west of 
the Blue Ridge...but feel that the potential for rain showers/thunderstorms and rain will 
remain west of the County Warning Area today. 


Winds today will become south-southwest-SW after 13z Monday with speeds 7-10kts 
and low end gusts likely at blf/roa/bcb by late morning through 
the afternoon. 


Medium to high confidence in ceilings through the taf valid 
period. Medium to high confidence in visibilities through the taf 
valid period. Medium to high confidence wind speed/direction 
through the taf valid period. 


Extended aviation discussion... 


South-southwest winds will continue to bring increasing moisture 
levels into the region...especially west of the Blue Ridge Tuesday. 
Meanwhile...the upper-level will become increasingly favorable for 
showers/thunderstorms as disturbances emanate from a broad upper 
trough across the central/western U.S. Expect scattered 
showers/thunderstorms mainly through the I-77 corridor Tuesday 
afternoon...spreading farther east across much of the County Warning Area 
Wednesday through the end of the week. Wednesday-Thursday at this point 
appear to be the most active days for thunderstorms...with some 
strong thunderstorms and heavy rain possible during this time 
frame. The threat for showers/thunderstorms may well linger for 
several subsequent days as a weak frontal boundary/baroclinic zone 
stall across the region with additional upstream energy remaining 
in place. 


Aside from showers/thunderstorms...conditions should generally be 
VFR or MVFR at worst...but increasing likelihood of early morning 
IFR-LIFR conditions in br/fog and low clouds as moisture levels 
increase and late day showers leave wet ground in place.
