NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
717 PM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
a mainly dry cold front crosses tonight. High pressure crosses 
Sunday. Warmer early next week. Cold fronts cross early Wednesday 
and again Friday. 


&& 


Near term /through Sunday/... 
700 PM update...reduced clouds a bit...although with front still 
west...continued lingering clouds across eastern lowlands and 
mountains several more hours. 


Previous discussion...fast moving cold front scoots across into 
this evening. Kept schc probability of precipitation across the mountains but otherwise a 
dry frontal passage. Some Post frontal low stratus may try to linger across 
the mountains and S Coal fields for a time tonight...but expect 
dry air will win out for most resulting in clearing this evening. 


A fantastic Sunday is shaping up with nary a cloud in the sky and 
seasonable temperatures. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday night through Tuesday/... 
the only real change to the forecast comes at the far end and have 
gone ahead and slowed down the arrival of the showers with the 
approaching cold front. Keep likelies in Perry County...but trim the 
extent of any probability of precipitation to the southeast as the NAM has slowed it down a 
touch and do not trust the faster GFS in these situations. 


Otherwise...a Dr warm front comes through Monday...pushing lowland 
temperature readings towards the 80 degree mark. Northern zones 
towards the mountains may have trouble keeping that pace...such as 
at ckb...so expect a bit of a gradient in the maximum temperatures east 
of I-79. 850mb temperatures will top out around 17c that day. 


On Tuesday...take the maximum temperatures down a couple degrees over 
the western zones with the increasing cloud cover during the day. 
Overall...expect Monday to be the warmer of the two days west of 
I-79 and Tuesday to be the warmer of the two days east of I-79. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
a mean upper trough over the eastern U.S. Brings a series of cold 
fronts through...each followed by cooler temperatures under Canadian 
high pressure which will bring temperatures to well below normal by 
Friday. Precipitation wise...with northwest flow dominating...moisture 
return from the Gulf of Mexico ahead of these fronts will be limited 
with correspondingly light quantitative precipitation forecast. First front this period uses the 
slower models over the faster GFS and will come across early 
Wednesday...preceded by showers Tuesday night and Wednesday 
morning. Another front will come across Friday with even less 
moisture available...so any light showers will be widely scattered. 
Temperatures will get progressively cooler this period. We will 
start with lower 60s for highs Wednesday and only near 50 by Friday. 
Lows will start in the lower 50s Tuesday night and in the 30s by 
Friday night. 


&& 


Aviation /23z Saturday through Thursday/... 
cold front still expected to move through this evening into 
tonight. Could get a brief gust of 20kts as the front passes. Satellite 
shows clouds have already broken up across much of The Lowlands. 
However...expect some of the MVFR ceilings to linger in the eastern 
lowlands and mountains into tonight. Behind the front...will have 
some flow to keep things stirred up...and limit fog potential. 


Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 00z Monday... 


Forecast confidence: high. 


Alternate scenarios: timing of ceiling changes may vary.
