NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
425 am EDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Synopsis... 
a large area of high pressure will remain over the northeastern 
U.S. Through Friday keeping a relatively cool air mass across the 
region. An area of low pressure will move very slowly through the 
southeastern states into Saturday...which will bring clouds to the 
entire area and a chance of rain to North Carolina and far 
southern Virginia. A stronger cold front will approach the region 
from the west early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 415 am EDT Thursday... 


Benign forecast through the near term as large area of cold...dry 
high pressure anchored over New England dominates the region. Low 
pressure developing across the southeast states/eastern Gulf late 
in the period will remain sufficiently far south through this time 
frame to have no impact on the region through this time frame. A 
northern stream upper short wave approaching from the northwest 
will also have little impact other than also some high clouds 
late in the period. Main concern through this time frame will once 
again be freezing temperatures and frost potential. Will let 
current freeze warning for the Piedmont runs its course through 9 
am. For Friday morning...any freezing temperatures look very 
spotty as air mass continues to slowly modify. More 
importantly...however...will be strengthening easterly flow in 
response to developing low pressure in the southeast. The extent 
of this wind flow is not totally clear at this point...but enough 
confidence that west of the Blue Ridge in the southern Shenandoah 
Valley that enough decoupling will exist for development of 
widespread frost as temperatures drop into the lower and middle 30s 
after late tonight/early Friday. Thus...have gone ahead and issued 
a frost advisory for Botetourt...Amherst...and Rockbridge...the 
main area of concern at this point. Day shift may need to consider 
expanding this further east and south depending on degree of 
confidence in decoupling allowing for frost formation. Ground is 
quite moist...so if winds remain light...temperatures should be 
cold enough for frost to develop. 


For temperatures...have once again favored the colder European model (ecmwf) MOS 
guidance...which has been handling the last few days quite well. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Sunday night/... 
as of 300 am EDT Thursday... 


Friday into Friday night...a cold air damming ridge will be in place 
across the Lee of the Appalachians. Progressively increasing 
moisture off the Atlantic will progress into the area on southeast 
winds...rounding the base of the ridge. Anticipate at least a mostly 
cloudy sky on Friday with increasing cloud cover Friday night. 
Another feature also will be contributing to increased cloud 
cover to area in general...and potentially some precipitation to the 
southern and southeastern portion of the region. 00z/8pm guidance 
among the GFS...ECMWF...and Canadian solutions bring a closed low 
slowly northeast through the Gulf Coast states with the northern 
extent of its precipitation shield brushing our southern tier 
counties by Friday evening...continuing through the night...and 
concluding into Saturday morning. The low itself is prognosticated to 
continue a slow northeast track and exit the U.S. Off the Georgia/SC 
coast around Saturday evening. 


While these three solutions are similar...they are a shift north 
as compared to their earlier counterparts that had dry 
solutions...and the 00z/8pm NAM solution has maintained a more 
southerly...and thus drier and warmer solution for our region. Given 
this...will offer no more than a slight chance of light rain from 
the northern mountains of NC eastward along the NC/Virginia border during 
the Friday evening/night time frame...and greater cloud cover...and 
cooler temperatures across the forecast area as a whole. 


Will refrain from continuing the slight chance into Saturday at this 
point...and allow our forecast to continue forward nearly unchanged 
through the remainder of the weekend. This solution is one that 
keeps the region within a zone of dry...high pressure...with ever 
slowly rising heights through the period...while the closed low 
spins off the coast of the southeast U.S. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Wednesday/... 
as of 330 PM EDT Wednesday... 


Upper ridging building behind a close upper low off the southeast 
coast will provide a nice boost in temperatures for much of the long 
term. Despite clouds ahead of another weak system approaching from 
the Great Lakes...warm SW flow should shove +10c 850 mb air our way 
into Tuesday. H8h temperatures are only slightly cooled by this boundary 
with showers probably confined to Tuesday night or Wednesday 
morning. Heights build quickly behind this disturbance in response 
to a closed low and digging negatively tilted trough through The 
Rockies...with the warm pattern continuing through the end of the 
forecast. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Thursday through Monday/... 
as of 135 am EDT Thursday... 


VFR ceilings/visibilities expected to continue through the period as a large 
cold...dry high pressure area continues to move to the 
northeastern U.S. Through the period. Low pressure aloft will be 
deepening across the eastern Gulf southeast Georgia/SC/northern Florida through the 
period...which will prolong the east-NE surface flow into the region for 
several days. As the flow becomes more east-southeast-southeast Thursday night into 
Friday and increased maritime flow...some low clouds may begin to 
develop across the Piedmont...especially in upslope areas along 
the Blue Ridge...but this is well beyond this valid taf period. 
High clouds will also spread toward the region by the end of this 
taf valid period as an upper trough approaches from the Midwest. 
Just beyond 00z Friday...expect broken-overcast 250 to develop...but not 
until then. Winds east-northeast-east-southeast through the period at 6-9kts...with low 
end gusts possible lyh/roa during the daytime and All Hours at 
blf. 


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


Extended aviation discussion... 
the next cold front approaches from the west Friday while another 
system stays off the southeast coast. There is potential for 
increase clouds Friday-Saturday over the southeast but most places 
should stay VFR...potentially MVFR early Friday across the Piedmont. 
VFR for Sunday with high pressure remaining across the northeast 
and middle Atlantic. The next system to bring MVFR to potentially IFR 
ceilings and -shra to the area does not arrive until early to middle part 
of next week.
