NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
950 am EST Sat Nov 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will bring one more day of fair weather to the region 
as we start the weekend. Then...a storm system moving northward 
through the Mississippi Valley will push a warm front into the 
Appalachians and central middle Atlantic region...bringing wet and 
windy conditions to the area by Sunday afternoon. Unseasonably warm 
conditions are expected Monday in the wake of this system before a 
cold front moves through Tuesday...returning temperatures to below 
normal for the rest of next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 950 am EST Saturday... 


High pressure over our region this morning will slide east this 
afternoon into tonight. An upper air disturbance will rotate 
eastward to our north around the high center. The hrrr...NAM and 
hiresw-arw keep moisture/precipitation to the north of our 
forecast area with this feature. Increased cloud cover in the 
northwest for high level moisture for this morning into this 
afternoon. However...significant clouds and moisture will be 
holding off until tonight as deep southwest flow sets up in the 
boundary layer ahead of approaching warm front. Made some minor 
changes in temperatures and dew points for this morning into this 
afternoon. Will hold with current forecast high temperatures for 
now...but will monitor for any changes later this morning. Enjoy 
your Saturday ! 


As of 330 am EST Saturday... 


One more quiet day on tap as high pressure over the region slides off 
to our east today. Low clouds to our west look to rotate around the 
back side of the high...which will keep them just west and north of 
the forecast area. However there will be some high clouds 
overspreading from the southwest...resulting in a fair weather day 
with filtered sunshine. Significant clouds and moisture will be 
holding off until late tonight as deep southwesterly flow sets up in the 
boundary layer ahead of approaching warm front...and clouds move in 
en masse from the southwest. And with the clouds comes the 
increasing chance of rain...entering the forecast from the North 
Carolina mountains by daybreak Sunday. Winds will be light through 
tonight...but will be ramping up quickly as we head into Sunday 
morning. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Tuesday night/... 
as of 400 am EST Saturday... 


The primary focus through the short term will be on a vigorous 
southern stream short wave slated to traverse the region from 
southwest to northeast Sun afternoon/Sun night. The short wave 
will eject in advance of a broader trough prognosticated to develop 
through the central U.S. Sun-Mon. As the broad upper trough begins 
to develop sun...the leading short wave will take on a strong 
negative tilt and rotate out of the arklatex/mid-south region 
toward the Ohio Valley sun evening/overnight. The antecedent air 
mass across the rnk County Warning Area will be dry/cool from the remnant Arctic 
high having drifted offshore in a favorable in-situ wedge 
position. A warm front will approach the region from the south Sun 
afternoon with widespread rain overrunning the warm front in an 
area of substantial isentropic lift. As usual with these type of 
situations...The Wedge leads to a stable environment as the main 
dynamics pass through the region and this is no exception. 


Concerns arise...however...as a 70-80kt low level jet traverses the area in 
association with the warm front/upper trough Sun afternoon/early 
evening. Storm Prediction Center has pushed the general thunder area up toward the 
Blue Ridge...and a marginal severe risk approaching the far southeast 
counties...namely Halifax/Caswell. Feel that this will be another 
situation where the cool boundary layer will remain decoupled from 
the stronger winds aloft across the Piedmont counties. Model 
advertised instability and BUFKIT soundings showing near zero 
instability...positive lifted indices...and zero cape...but substantial shear 
with strongly curved hodographs and 30+kts low-level shear across 
much of the region. A typical high shear/Low Cape environment. 
However...with cape near zero...do not feel there will be enough 
support for thunderstorms and rain at this point and have continued to leave it out 
of the grids in coordination with our neighbors. 


The greater concern through the sun time frame will be as the 
strong low level jet traverses the higher terrain of northwest NC/SW Virginia/southeast WV. This 
is fairly classical setup for strong to high winds in the 
Smyth/Tazewell/Mercer County region. Current advertised wind 
speeds do not support a high wind watch at this point with 
sustained winds around 22kts and gusts to around 38kts. A Wind 
Advisory seems quite probable though as we move closer to the 
event. 


While a brief period of moderate rainfall can be expected Sun 
afternoon into the evening hours...mainly in the 18z-06z time 
frame...overall quantitative precipitation forecast remain mostly 1 inch or less for the entire 
County Warning Area. The heaviest rainfall should fall across upslope southeast 
facing slopes of the Blue Ridge with a strong S-southeast wind through 
the bulk of the rain event. 


Monday...the warm front moves to the north and a very deep 966mb surface 
low pressure area Cranks up across the Great Lakes as the vigorous 
negatively tilted short wave moves into that region and phases 
with the parent upper trough moving slowly east. This will result 
in a strong SW surface and boundary low flow across our region. The 
County Warning Area will be solidly in the warm sector for sure. Temperatures may 
actually begin to rise overnight Sun night with strong low-level 
warm air advection. With 850mb temperatures +10c to even +12c across parts of the County Warning Area 
and the strong SW flow...high temperatures will be unseasonably 
warm in the 60s west of the Blue Ridge to the 70s east of the Blue 
Ridge...with even 50s in the western mountains. Compared to the 
bitter cold of the past week...it will feel like Summer. Cannot 
completely rule out a passing shower in the summerlike air 
mass...but other than the strong low-level flow...the soundings 
show a strong middle-level cap...so showers would mostly likely be 
confined to passing MDT cumulus capable of a sprinkle...which is not 
likely. 


We begin to return to reality Tuesday as the broad upper trough 
continues to shift into the eastern U.S. In response to a building 
SW U.S. Upper ridge. Cooler air will filter into the region from 
the west with a gradual cool down expected through the 
Thanksgiving week. Maximum/min temperatures Tuesday should be a good 20-30 
degrees cooler than Monday...but nothing close to our recent cold 
temperatures. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Friday/... 
as of 445 am EST Saturday... 


Wednesday...the center of the upper low is prognosticated to progress 
from near James Bay northeast towards Greenland. The systems 
trailing cold front is expected to progress eastward to near the 
east coat of the U.S. Model guidance continue to offer various 
solutions regarding a wave of low pressure that is prognosticated to head 
north along this front...from the Gulf Coast states to the middle- 
Atlantic Seaboard by midday Wednesday. General consensus is now 
that this will occur...with the European model (ecmwf) pulling the moisture 
farthest back inland and to the west...while the Canadian is the 
driest. The GFS seems to be a reasonable compromise at this point. 
At any rate...enough confidence that this will buckle the front 
from Tuesday...at that point lying along the coastal areas...and allow 
the associated moisture to spread back into the Piedmont at a 
minimum...possibly as far west Wednesday as the Alleghany front. 
Thus...have continued to increase probability of precipitation for Wednesday across most of the 
County Warning Area...approaching likely values in far eastern areas. Enough 
colder air will have made its way into the region for some type of 
wintry precipitation in western areas. However...the western areas 
are the areas least likely to receive precipitation with this event...so 
any winter precipitation...primarily snow...would be minor at best and does 
not appear to arouse any winter weather concerns at this point. 
For areas east of the Blue Ridge...the precipitation should remain 
in the form of rain throughout the event. By Wednesday night into 
Thursday...this coastal wave will be near the Canadian Maritimes 
and no longer be a factor in our forecast. 


What will become a factor is yet another deepening upper low 
Thursday into Friday. Guidance is offering this one to take a 
farther south track than its predecessor...deepen more...and funnel 
a stronger surge of colder air into our region. After an initial 
round of isentropic lift associated precipitation on 
Thursday...its associated cold front will sweep through the area 
Thursday night. In its wake...upslope snow showers and gusty 
northwest winds are anticipated in the preferred areas of 
southeast West Virginia Thursday night into Friday. 


Temperatures through the period will trend lower each day...with the 
biggest drop being Thursday into Friday...with slightly below to 
below normal temperatures expected through the remainder of the 
Thanksgiving week. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
as of 630 am EST Saturday... 


High confidence in VFR conditions at all taf sites this period. 


Essentially a none weather forecast this taf package as center of 
high pressure starts the period over the region and slowly slides 
off to our east. Low clouds upstream are forecast to rotate around 
the back side of the high to our west and north. Maybe a few puffs 
of cumulus at klwb or kblf this afternoon but do not feel it warrants any 
mention in the taf. But model upper level relative humidity fields correlate well 
with cirrus seen streaming in our direction on current satellite 
loop so it looks like a high ceiling of broken cirrus will prevent sky clear for 
sky condition. Winds will be light at all sites through the forecast 
period...but kblf will see winds back from SW to southerly and stay up a 
bit tonight as the influence of approaching low pressure and warm 
front start to be felt. 


Towards the end of the taf period moisture will start to encroach 
from the south. Will not include any low clouds with this issuance 
but kdan and possibly kbcb and kblf may have MVFR ceilings on their 
doorstep by 12z Sunday. 


Extended discussion... 


The next significant weather will arrive on Sunday with windy 
conditions developing during the morning...and rain with MVFR to IFR 
conditions Sunday afternoon and night. Also...strengthening low 
level winds later on Sunday may lead to low level wind shear...especially the blf 
area. A brief return to VFR during Monday outside of the mountains 
as a dry slot develops between the exiting front from Sunday and the 
next upstream cold front. Monday into Tuesday look to feature quite 
a bit of wind. For the remainder of next week...expect periods of 
MVFR ceilings across eastern WV/far SW Virginia...but mostly VFR elsewhere 
with a colder northwest flow. 


&& 


Equipment... 
as of 215 PM EST Friday... 


The visibility sensor at klyh...Lynchburg Airport...will be out 
of service until parts arrive to replace the sensor. Until then 
the visibility will only be reported when the control tower is 
staffed.
