NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Blacksburg Virginia 
401 PM EDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will remain over the region promoting mostly clear 
skies and light winds...fair weather persisting through the first 
half of the day Friday. Weather conditions will rapidly 
deteriorate Friday evening as a fast moving disturbance from 
Canada moves southeast across the Ohio Valley...then across the 
southern Appalachians Friday night and Saturday. Winter storm 
conditions are likely in the high country of North Carolina...and 
into the higher elevations of far western Virginia vicinity of 
Mount ROgers Friday night and Saturday. Elevations above 3000 feet 
will see the greatest wintry impact. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
as of 400 PM EDT Thursday... 


A weak area of high pressure will promote good radiational 
cooling conditions this evening...before clouds move over in the 
morning. Temperatures will drop off quickly this evening with most 
areas being in the 30s by sunrise Friday. Patchy frost expected in 
mountain valleys to isolated in rural locations across the 
foothills of southwest Virginia and northwest North Carolina early 
Friday morning. 


Deteriorating conditions expected through the day Friday as a 
strong disturbance dives southeast from the Great Lakes into the 
Ohio Valley. One short wave coming around this disturbance will 
bring light rain showers to western slopes of southeastern West 
Virginia around noon Friday. The atmosphere will continue to 
saturate through the afternoon as this short wave tracks east over 
the forecast area. Rain showers advance to the Blue Ridge by early 
afternoon then into the foothills late. The Piedmont may not see 
any rain until Friday evening. Low level thicknesses and 850 mb 
temperatures stay warm through the day to keep p-type as a cold 
rain. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday night/... 
as of 400 PM EDT Thursday... 


Deep closed 500mb low over Indiana will track south-southeast into 
western North Carolina by Saturday morning then east to the 
Outer Banks by Saturday evening. 110 knot upper jet rounds the base 
of the trough Saturday then trough axis moves east of the forecast area 
Saturday night. Surface low feature will be subtle as it crosses the 
Carolinas Friday night but then low sharply deepens just off the 
coast on Saturday. 


Expecting good upslope on the western side of the Appalachians 
Saturday and Saturday night. 850 mb winds will be 45 to 50 knots 
from the north-northwest so direction is not ideal but speeds are 
certainly plenty strong. Best pressure rises will be on Saturday 
night as low deepens which will enhance wind speeds. 


BUFKIT soundings and partial thickness forecasts suggest a gradual 
change over from rain to snow around midnight Friday night in most 
locations. A better eastward push of the unseasonably cold air comes 
in Saturday night behind the precipitation in the east. 


Models pull the deep moisture east of the County Warning Area 
Saturday night faster than the NAM. But even NAM BUFKIT sounding 
shows moisture becoming shallow by late Saturday night. Little 
additional accumulation with such shallow moisture on Saturday 
night. 


Surface high pressure builds in Sunday and Sunday night. Winds and 
upslope will diminish although some clouds may linger in southeast 
West Virginia Sunday evening. 


Have upgrade to a Winter Storm Warning. Other advisories will likely 
be issued later. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 400 PM EDT Thursday... 


Upper rising at 500 mb Monday and Tuesday then evolves into a split 
flow pattern across the United States by Wednesday which may bring a 
short wave through the northern stream. Surface high pressure 
remains over the southeast Monday and Tuesday. Inflow off the Gulf 
of Mexico increases as the high moves offshore Wednesday and 
Thursday. Models showing a boundary approaching the forecast area 
from the west on Wednesday. Will be increasing the probability of 
precipitation on Wednesday and Wednesday night. Temperatures through 
the period will be near or just above normal. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Thursday through Tuesday/... 
as of 115 PM EDT Thursday... 


High pressure will build overhead this afternoon and tonight 
promoting light and variable winds. Some weak isentropic lift pushed 
high-end MVFR clouds across the mountains this morning. Into this 
evening...a west wind aloft will eroding clouds especially east of 
the Blue Ridge. Any clouds making it to bcb/roa should only drop to 
low-end VFR. 


Extended aviation discussion... 


Expectation is for VFR conditions to persist through the first half 
of the day Friday...then deteriorating as a strong storm system 
moves in from the northwest. This system will bring a prolonged 
period of potentially IFR-LIFR ceilings and precipitation...with snow in 
the mountains of NC/WV/and far western Virginia...and rain in the valleys. 
At this time it looks like significant impact to aviation will develop 
within the vicinity of the NC mountains and up into the higher elevations 
of far western Virginia and WV. Models suggest this storm system will be very 
dynamic with low freezing levels and heavy wet snow underneath the 
core of the storm which is prognosticated to pass directly over the NC 
mountains in addition...strong winds are expected to develop Saturday in 
the wake of this departing storm system. Strong cross barrier 
flow...50 kts...is expected over the mountains...resulting in 
surface wind gusts of 30 kts Lee of the Blue Ridge Saturday 
afternoon and evening. 


This storm will quickly move away from the area Sunday with VFR 
conditions returning for Monday and Tuesday. 


&& 


Equipment... 
the ac units for the radar shelter are bad. Radar operation will 
be intermittent until such time the ac units are fixed. 
If shelter temperatures rise above critical levels we will place 
the radar into standby to avoid damage to the transmitter.
