NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
255 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014 


Synopsis... 
cool...dry airmass hangs on most of the work week...before 
moderating into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
upper level troughiness dominates this 
period with short wave trough overhead moving east this afternoon...and 
another Wednesday afternoon. 


Stubborn morning stratus finally all but mixed out. Scattered 
unplugged convection persists across central portions of the area in 
a west-east axis. With moisture not that deep and lack of heating...not 
expecting this to amount to much before dissipating by sunset. 


Tonight will be another fight between fog and stratus with fog 
winning out initially. We probably will be dealing with morning cumulus 
again Wednesday. Models indicate increased instability Wednesday afternoon with 
more sunshine and cool air hanging aloft...so the thunder chance 
returns. 


Temperatures looked good in light of latest bias corrected guidance. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday night/... mild 
temperatures across the region in the short term period...as upper 
trough remains across eastern u... closed upper low over 
Canada. Several disturbances rotating through the the area will 
keep a daily mention of showers in the forecast. Flow will turn 
more southeasterly on Friday...with increased chances for 
showers/storms across the mountainous counties. Temperatures 
through the period look to remain slightly below seasonal norms. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
showers and thunderstorms increase in coverage Friday night and into 
Saturday as a low moves into the area from the southwest. Increased 
probability of precipitation to high chance/lower likelies in this time frame 
unsettled weather will continue for much of the extended period...as 
additional upper level energy drops southeast into the 
Midwest...deepening the upper trough across the area...and keeping the 
weather on the cool and unsettled side. Drier weather will finally 
settle in towards early to middle next week as the upper trough pushes 
off to the east...and surface high pressure builds in. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
MVFR stratus / morning cumulus has mixed out all but The Heights area and 
that should happen there by 21z. The few showers scattered along an 
east-west band from southern Ohio eastward across central WV will dissipate around 
sunset. 


Tonight will bring more valley fog then stratus although there will 
likely be some of either. Have dense fog crw and ekn and IFR fog 
along the Ohio River. Stratus that does not form by dawn Wednesday will 
likely form as morning cumulus after dawn. This may again take all 
morning to mix out. When it does...isolated convection will be 
allowed to fire up. 


Light northwest surface flow will go calm tonight and then become light west on 
Wednesday. Light northwest flow aloft will become light west on Wednesday. 


Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 18z Wednesday... 


Forecast confidence: medium to high. 


Alternate scenarios: the extent of fog and stratus may vary 
overnight and Wednesday morning. 


Experimental table of flight category objectively shows consistency 
of weather forecast office forecast to available model information: 
h = high: taf consistent with all models or all but one model. 
M = medium: taf has varying level of consistency with models. 
L = low: taf inconsistent with all models or all but one model.
