NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
738 am EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will move in from the northwest tonight. This front 
will bring gusty winds for Sunday. High pressure will then pass 
across our area Sunday night into Monday. The next cold front 
will arrive by Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 255 am EDT Saturday... 


Chilly late October morning with patchy frost a good bet in the 
mountains...as well as a few Piedmont areas. However...no changes to 
the frost advisory. Today will be the final day for the mountains 
for frost/freeze products as the growing season officially ends. 


Should see a mild day ahead of a mainly dry cold front tracking 
southeast from the Ohio Valley. Winds will pick up from the west at 
10 miles per hour with gusts to 20 miles per hour at times by middle afternoon. Highs should 
range from the middle 60s mountains to lower to middle 70s east of the 
Blue Ridge. 


The front will slide across by late tonight with northwest flow aloft. 
Models showing increase in low and middle level moisture but airmass is 
very dry at this time. Cannot rule out isolated showers tonight from the 
Greenbrier mountains south into the NC mountains. Other than that 
expect more clouds in the west overnight to clear/pc east. Winds 
will stay up resulting in milder lows...from the middle 40s 
mountains...to upper 40s...lower 50s southeast. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Tuesday night/... 
as of 330 am EDT Saturday... 


Will start Sunday morning on the gusty side as high pressure builds 
into our region in the wake of a cold front that passed during the 
night. The strongest winds will move across the area during late 
morning...with 25 to 35 miles per hour gusts likely across the mountains... 
moreso north of Highway 460. Wind speeds will decrease during the 
afternoon as the core of strongest winds shifts east...and high 
pressure begins to settle across the western half of the forecast 
area. Despite the passage of a cold front...believe the combination 
of upper level ridging building in from the plains...and warming 
downslope windflow will keep afternoon temperatures mild...with 
highs ranging from the middle/upper 60s across the mountains...to the 
middle 70s across the Southside. 




The center of high pressure will pass over our area Sunday night... 
reaching the Carolina coast by early afternoon Monday. With the 
departure of the high...winds will shift southwesterly along the 
appalachian chain...bringing warmer air northward from the Gulf. As 
such...expect temperatures for Monday and Tuesday to be similar to 
those more typical of September. Most locations will warm into the 
70s on Monday...and expect to see low 80s across the Piedmont on 
Tuesday. Overnight lows will be generally in the 50s. 


Expect clear/mostly clear skies Sunday through Tuesday afternoon... 
with increasing cloud cover beginning Tuesday evening. Shower 
activity is expected Tuesday night as our next cold front enters 
from the west after midnight. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Friday/... 
as of 315 am EDT Saturday... 


A cold front will be in the process of crossing the forecast region 
on Wednesday morning. Chance probability of precipitation for showers were kept mainly along 
and west of the Blue Ridge on Wednesday. The cold front could slow 
down while crossing the County Warning Area...but the quantitative precipitation forecast is not impressive... 
although the GFS shows higher amounts than the European model (ecmwf). 


The 25/00z European model (ecmwf) and GFS forecast models area similar in the timing 
of the frontal passage on Wednesday...and agree that the front will 
stall south of our area during Thursday. The diurnal range of 
temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday was kept smaller and in 
closer agreement with the European model (ecmwf) MOS guidance...as cloud cover and 
showers should limit the spread between highs and lows. 


The model solutions diverge significantly by Friday. The European model (ecmwf) 
depicts a strong upper level trough crossing the Appalachian 
Mountains...while the GFS portrays a slower solution with a flatter 
trough. Although confidence is low...breezy conditions and a slight 
chance of showers...which could be most notable along the western 
slopes...have been mentioned for the end of the work week. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
as of 720 am EDT Friday... 


VFR conditions are expected across the vast majority of the region 
through the next 24 hours. Patchy MVFR/IFR fog at lwb will be VFR 
by 1330z. 


West to northwest winds will be picking up to 10 knots at times this 
afternoon. Frontal boundary will move into the mountains overnight 
and south of the Virginia/NC border by 12z Sunday. Moisture is limited 
overall but some MVFR ceilings across lwb/blf after midnight is 
feasible. The threat of showers is low. Expect some gusty winds 
after midnight in the west behind the front. 




Extended aviation discussion... 


Breezy and dry with VFR will occur Sunday. Gusts over 30 knots 
possible at bcb/roa. 


Dry VFR conditions expected through Tuesday night. Lower 
restrictions possible Wednesday with the passing of the next front. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
as of 330 am EDT Saturday... 


On a safety note...rapidly warming temperatures Sunday morning will 
cause relative humidity to decrease quickly. And since it has been 
several days since our last widespread rainfall...fallen leaves and 
brush will have had time to dry out. As such...the combination of 
gusty winds...low humidity and dry fuels will make outdoor burning 
hazardous on Sunday...potentially causing fires to burn out of 
control. Burning is therefore strongly discouraged. 


&& 


Rnk watches/warnings/advisories... 
Virginia...frost advisory until 9 am EDT this morning for vaz011>017. 
NC...frost advisory until 9 am EDT this morning for ncz001-002-018.
