Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 11:47 am EDT on April 23, 2014



... Increased fire danger continues through late afternoon...

Very dry and breezy conditions can be expected through late this
afternoon... with wind speeds of 10 to 20 mph... including wind
gusts to 25 mph... and humidity minimums of 15 to 25 percent.
These weather conditions... in combination with drying Forest
fuels... will make for an increasing fire threat through late this
afternoon.

ignition source. Be sure to properly discard all smoking
materials. Any dry grasses and tree litter that ignite will have
the potential to spread quickly. Accidental escaped debris Burns
are the number one cause of wildfires.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
348 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
cool high pressure over the Ohio Valley will build southeast 
passing overhead tonight and Thursday. Another cold front will 
cross the area from the west on Friday. 
&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
as of 210 PM EDT Wednesday... 


Mainly a temperature forecast over the next 24 hours as the upper 
trough departs overnight and shortwave ridging builds overhead on 
Thursday. This will allow the cool surface high to slide southeast across 
the region later tonight and then to the coast on Thursday. This 
will keep very dry air in place but allow for diminishing winds 
tonight and the onset of weak SW flow Thursday afternoon as the 
ridge departs. May start to see some high clouds return from the 
west later Thursday otherwise clear overnight and mainly sunny 
Thursday. 


Main concern with low temperatures tonight given potential for good 
radiational cooling after midnight as dewpoints remain low and 
winds go light under clear skies. This would support values going 
below freezing mountains...with some 20s valleys...and well into 
the 30s out east where the growing season has started. However 
similar to temperatures a few nights back...dewpoint depressions look 
quite large given dry air which wont support much frost outside 
The Bottoms/low spots...while coldest values will be brief near 
dawn pending how far winds decouple. Thus after coordination with 
surrounding sites...have opted out of a frost advisory for now 
while increasing the patchy coverage east late with lows mainly 
middle/upper 30s. Should quickly recover on Thursday per 850 mb warming 
and weak SW flow aided by heating of dry air which will push most 
into the 60s if not low 70s in spots. 
&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
as of 330 PM EDT Wednesday... 


Short wave coming out of the middle Mississippi Valley will cross 
through the Ohio Valley Thursday night...reaching the far western 
County Warning Area around 12z/8am Friday morning. This feature 
weakens as it crosses the area. The corresponding surface cold 
front is expected to pass through during the day Friday. 


Will speed up arrival time of precipitation Friday morning. With 
this timing...appears the best opportunity for thunderstorms will 
be east of the Blue Ridge...ahead of the front in the afternoon. 


Very little change in airmass behind the front on Friday night. Have 
maintained a low chance of precipitation in the far northern County 
Warning Area as a secondary front comes in from the north on 
Saturday. 
&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 330 PM EDT Wednesday... 


A more pronounced push of cold air will come in behind a front on 
Saturday night. The front will stall south of the forecast area on 
Sunday. High pressure builds in north of the boundary and will 
keep the winds from the east on Sunday. Have kept Sunday maximum 
temperatures below guidance with the expected east component of 
the winds and increasing cloud cover. 


The upper pattern becomes more amplified through this time frame. 
Will have an upper ridge over the eastern United States Saturday 
night through Monday. Then a closed low tracks through the central 
United States Tuesday and Wednesday. 


Surface low pressure develops in the Central Plains by Monday with 
broad flow off the Gulf of Mexico. Moisture will lift over the 
stalled boundary in the Tennessee Valley on Monday. Models were 
offering different solutions for the track of the surface low 
Tuesday and Wednesday with the European model (ecmwf) much farther north and west 
than the GFS. 


Wpc was leaning toward a track of the surface low through the Ohio 
Valley with a strong cold front coming through the region on 
Wednesday. With overall southwest flow and the front remaining to 
the west until Wednesday...have trended toward warmer temperatures 
for Monday through Wednesday. 
&& 


Aviation /20z Wednesday through Monday/... 
as of 1255 PM EDT Wednesday... 


Widespread VFR conditions under mainly clear skies will prevail 
during the next 24 hours into Thursday afternoon. Gusty northwest winds 
will continue this afternoon...with sustained 12-17 kts including 
gusts to 20-25 kts. Winds will diminish and become light tonight 
with return of light south to southwesterly flow Thursday as high 
pressure passes overhead and off the middle Atlantic coast. 


Extended aviation discussion... 


A cold front will cross the area early Friday...with a brief 
period of MVFR restrictions possible as showers/isolated storms 
move east with the front through the area. Strong high pressure 
builds in Friday night into Saturday with VFR expected under gusty 
northwest winds. Winds diminish Saturday night followed by high 
pressure passing across Sunday with fair dry weather. Moisture 
will start to return north Sunday night as a boundary lifts NE 
ahead of low pressure across the central U.S. This will likely 
bring sub-VFR conditions later Sunday night and espcly on Monday. 
&& 


Fire weather... 
as of 330 PM EDT Wednesday... 


Red flag warning remains in effect from the Virginia Blue Ridge 
northward into north central Virginia for continued gusty northwest 
winds and low humidity. Fire Danger Statement elsewhere for increased 
fire danger where winds wont be quite as strong and fuels a bit 
wetter. 


Otherwise winds will range from 15 to 20 miles per hour sustained...with gusts of 
25 to 30 miles per hour through early this evening. Humidity minimums near 
20 percent will also be common resulting in continued marginal red 
flag criteria until around sunset. In addition...it has been 7 
days since measurable rainfall has occurred in Roanoke valley and 
the immediate Blue Ridge counties...including the New River and 
Shenandoah valleys. This has allowed leaves and brush to become 
dry and very receptive to fire...10 hour fuel moisture dropping to 
around 7 percent or lower. 


Concern is for rapid fire spread if a wildfire occurs. 


Winds should finally diminish overnight as high pressure builds in 
with humidity levels recovering to 70-80 percent or higher after 
midnight. Winds will be much lighter on Thursday and gradually 
turn more SW under 10 miles per hour. However relative humidity will again 
drop with heating during the afternoon with levels likely dropping 
to below 25-30 percent across most of the region. A cold front may 
bring some wetting rain in the form of scattered showers and 
isolated storms during Friday.
