NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
1043 am EDT Friday Aug 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
a strong upper level ridge of high pressure is centered over the 
lower Mississippi River valley with a stationary surface front 
extending from the upper Midwest...through the Ohio Valley and 
into the Middle Atlantic States. This front will be the focus 
for periodic rounds of showers and storms from the Ohio Valley 
into the middle Atlantic today and tonight. Over the weekend the 
front is expected to move south along the East Coast...turning 
into a backdoor cold front which will bring cooler air to areas 
east of the Appalachians...while very warm sultry weather 
continues across the middle section of the United States. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 1015 am EDT Friday... 


Little change from the early morning forecast philosophy described 
below. For the 10 am update...increased rain chances heading into 
the afternoon from southeast West Virginia eastward...basically 
along the Highway 460 corridor...as a series of disturbances pass 
across our area. Rainfall appears to be a greater certainty given 
latest radar trends...although do not anticipate higher rainfall 
amounts over what was forecast earlier this morning. 


Also...adjusted high temperatures for this afternoon downward a 
couple degrees for the northern half of the area due to thick 
cloud cover and shower activity. Left temperatures for the 
Southside and North Carolina Piedmont untouched for the most part 
as a lack of cloud cover in these areas is allowing for stronger 
heating. 




As of 530 am EDT Friday... 


Flash Flood Watch in effect today and tonight for much of West 
Virginia and parts of southwestern Virginia. 


Classic ring of fire pattern setting up around the periphery of 
the strong upper level ridge of high pressure which has now become 
centered over the Mississippi Valley. A very rich...moisture laden 
airmass...is being pumped from the Gulf of Mexico northward...and 
is pooling along a stationary front which arcs around the northern 
periphery of the ridge. This front extends from the Upper Middle 
west across the Ohio Valley and into the middle Atlantic...the 
numerous storms evolving along this boundary appearing as a large 
ring like feature when you look at regional satellite and radars. 
It also gives the impression of a train with storms appearing to 
traverse the same areas...following a proverbial Railroad track. 
This of course is problematic since repeated downpours over the 
same area will ultimately lead to flooding. 


Mesoanalysis from this morning indicates the most pronounced part 
of the Railroad track...strongest part of the baroclinic zone... 
runs from northern IL/in...then bends southeast across Ohio and 
into WV...becoming diffuse once you get east of the mountains in 
spite of the larger scale model differences...which underplay the 
quantitative precipitation forecast from the mesoscale features...I am moderate to highly 
confident storms will continue to regenerate along the strongest 
part of the baroclinic zone...storms moving southeast along this 
Railroad track feature and into our County Warning Area and producing higher quantitative precipitation forecast. 
Strong 850 mb moisture transport is ongoing across WV with precipitable waters  
steadily climbing toward 2.0. This suggests storms that pass 
through this environment will be very rain efficient. Given the 
potential for these storms to repeatedly move over the same 
area...a Flash Flood Watch seems to be a good headline for the 
day. At this time will focus the attention on our WV counties and across 
the New River valley where flash flood guidance suggests any rain 
that exceeds 1.5 to 2.0 inches in an hour will require a Flash 
Flood Warning. These numbers are certainly achievable given the 
environment. 


Showers and storms are certainly possible elsewhere across the 
County Warning Area. Similar to yesterday...northwest flow will result in a 
weakening of the activity as it crosses the mountains...the storms 
breaking up into clusters or short line segments as they quickly 
traverse the County Warning Area. These storms will also produce heavy rain...but 
I am less confident east of the mountains that storms will exhibit 
the same sort of train effects as areas to the west. 


Went below GFS MOS guidance and closer to the met guidance for 
temperatures today and tonight. The GFS seemed 3 to 5 degrees too 
warm given the mostly cloudy moist showery forecast. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Monday night/... 
as of 400 am EDT Friday... 


During this portion of the forecast...the main item of focus will be 
a backdoor cold front that enters the region Saturday night into 
Sunday as high pressure builds south off the New England coast. 
Prior to its arrival...the weather on Saturday will be comparable 
with that expected today. The area will be within an unstable 
environment with upper level disturbances traversing the 
region...providing additional support for convection. However...the 
focus for any of these will be shifted across more of the southwest 
parts of the region as the upper baroclinic zone shifts in that 
direction as well. 


Saturday night into Sunday...the passage of the backdoor cold front 
will itself be a focus for shower activity. However...once it has 
moved west of a particular area...low level will become 
easterly...and the onset of a Lee side damming wedge will ensue. 
Expect areas along and west of a line from roughly Bluefield WV to 
Marion Virginia will remain somewhat unstable with the front taking 
up position either over...or very close to that area. It will be 
here where any additional showers or storms may develop on Sunday. 
Temperatures within the area of The Wedge will experience little 
rise from Saturday night overnight lows. We still anticipate a cool 
day Sunday within The Wedge with upper 60s to around 70 common for 
high temperatures. The far western parts of the area are more likely 
to experience upper 70s to lower 80s for highs. Precipitation within 
The Wedge will transition from showers to more a light rain or 
drizzle scenario. 


Heading into Monday...am reluctant to remove the influence of The 
Wedge too quickly. Have continued with a more cloudy than clear day 
with residual...but reduced in coverage...light rain or drizzle 
within the area of The Wedge. By Monday night...the forecast will 
reflect drier air working its way into the area as the center of the 
high moves onshore to central Pennsylvania. Steering onshore flow 
around the high will start advecting low level moisture south of our 
region. Low will range from the upper 50s across the mountains to 
lower 60s across the Piedmont. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Thursday/... 
as of 1130 am EDT Thursday... 


Surface high pressure will be in a favorable location over New 
England to wedge well down the east slopes of the Appalachians 
Sunday night and Monday. Support for The Wedge weakens by Tuesday. 
High pressure will remain over the forecast area through Wednesday. 
Wednesday night and Thursday a cold front will approach the area. 
Large 500 mb ridge aloft will cover much of the lower Mississippi 
Valley across the eastern United States through the period. 


The deepest moisture shifts southwest out of the forecast area on 
Monday and Tuesday. Will have these days dry in the forecast. The 
chance of precipitation returns to the area on Wednesday and 
Thursday ahead of the front. Expect maximum temperatures to be 
warmest on Wednesday and Thursday with The Wedge gone and more 
potential to mix down warm 850 mb temperatures. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Friday through Tuesday/... 
as of 800 am EDT Friday... 


Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms can be expected 
today and tonight...with the greatest coverage over the mountains. 
Flying conditions will be highly variable with primarily MVFR/IFR 
conditions over the mountains...and a mix of VFR/MVFR east of the mountains 
through the 24 hour taf period. 


Extended aviation... 


Weather conditions will remain unsettled through the weekend. 
Upper level disturbances will be moving through periodically and 
interacting with a stationary front over the area for the next few 
days...resulting in periods of showers and thunderstorms. Due to 
the high moisture content of the air...expect stratus and fog 
during the overnight periods with areas of MVFR/IFR most 
pronounced between midnight and 9am each day. Models are 
indicating that a deeper easterly sort of wind flow will setup for 
this upcoming weekend. This suggests that low ceilings may persist 
even during the daytime periods...Saturday and Sunday...with 
widespread MVFR conditions across the area this weekend due to 
moisture banking up against the east side of the Appalachians. 
A better punch of dry air with high pressure building in from the 
NE may be enough with mixing/heating to allow for increasing VFR 
Monday into Tuesday under mainly dry conditions. 


&& 


Equipment... 
the ASOS at Lynchburg (lyh) Virginia remains partially inop due to a 
board failure. Parts have been ordered with the return of 
complete service unknown at this time.
