NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
339 PM EDT Wednesday Sep 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
weak high pressure in control this week. Diurnal heating could 
produce isolated to scattered afternoon showers or storms through 
the week. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
scattered showers and storms continue to develop across portions 
of the area. These storms have developed in response to a middle- 
level shortwave which is currently pushing southeast. 


This feature should continue to push southeast and should exit the 
area by 00z. In response...expect any remaining convection should 
weaken and dissipate by late this evening. 


With light winds and low-level moisture in place...expect River 
Valley to form again overnight. Any fog/low clouds that forms 
should quickly dissipate after sunrise. 


Models suggest another shortwave will push southeast again on 
Thursday...with showers and storms developing by the early afternoon 
hours. 


Latest met/mav numbers were similar and were close to current 
numbers...so only made some tweaks. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Friday night/... 
a very weak Summer like flow pattern aloft continues this period. 
While there may be hard to find weak disturbances just drifting 
around...the determining factor for any shower activity in the 
moist atmosphere in place will be diurnal heating. With no low 
level boundaries to focus any convection...will keep probability of precipitation in the 
slight to chance category each afternoon...rapidly dissipating 
with loss of heating. The best chance will be in the mountains 
where the elevated heat source will aid convection. Temperatures 
will be around 90 degrees with a bit of humidity to deal with. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Wednesday/... 
12z GFS solution was faster than the 12z European model (ecmwf) with a short wave 
and associated surface front trying to Dent the ridge by 
day 7/Tuesday. At this distance in time...will not jump on the 
faster solution but still have chance probability of precipitation in southeast Ohio and 
northern WV Tuesday afternoon and evening. 


Tried to hold maximum temperature down a bit for day 4/Saturday 
in the southeast upslope areas...otherwise no major changes. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Wednesday through Monday/... 
scattered shows and storms with MVFR...possible IFR...conditions...have 
developed across the region. Outside of the storms...VFR conditions 
were the rule. 


Expect these storms and MVFR/IFR conditions will continue to move 
across the area through 02z. 


Clearing skies and Warm River waters will once again result in the 
development of dense River Valley fog after 09z. Expect River Valley sites 
to deteriorate from MVFR to IFR/LIFR during the 09-12z period. Any 
fog will quickly dissipate by 12-13z for widespread VFR conditions 
on Wednesday. 


Diurnal heating and a middle-level disturbance will once again 
result in the development of scattered storms with MVFR...possible 
IFR... conditions...after 15z Thursday. 


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


Forecast confidence: high. 


Alternate scenarios: timing and depth of fog tonight may vary from 
forecast. 


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.
