NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
1017 PM EDT Tuesday Apr 21 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will sweep across the area Wednesday...with high 
pressure taking control Thursday and Friday. Low pressure tracks 
south of the area this weekend. Drier Sunday. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
1010 PM update...tweaked temperatures based on current observation and 
trends...however no significant changes made. 


Previous discussion...models showing a decent pressure gradient remaining 
overnight...so expect the winds to continue stirring. 
Therefore...will go above MOS guidance on temperatures tonight 
everywhere south of the cold front. Models showing a decent band 
of showers developing along the front early Wednesday...so will 
increase the probability of precipitation and attempt some better timing of the 
precipitation. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday/... 
cold front will be well east of the region at the beginning of the 
period. High pressure should slowly build in...bringing precipitation 
chances to an end by late Wednesday night. The high should remain 
in control of the weather across the area through the remainder of 
the period. 


Met/mav numbers were close Wednesday night and Thursday...while they 
differ by several degrees at some locations Thursday night. Went 
closer to the slightly warmer mav numbers as met numbers appear too 
cold. Last of all...went close to HPC numbers for highs on Friday. 


With the cold nighttime temperatures...any precipitation could mix 
with or change to some light snow across the highest elevations 
Wednesday night. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
middle level disturbance streaking east-southeast over strong baroclinic zone 
Saturday into Saturday night. For such a tight moisture and 
temperature gradient still projected on Saturday into Saturday 
night...we have not made any huge changes. Our chance probability of precipitation 
work a bit further north Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. 
Still hitting southern and central counties harder on the higher 
probability of precipitation for Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. 


Figuring area would remain on the cool side of that boundary 
Saturday into Saturday night. Strong 850 mb temperature 
gradient across southern West Virginia and eastern Kentucky. If 
rain showers develop across the south as projected...had to go lower 
than MOS and wpc temperature guidance for maximum temperature on 
Saturday. May actually be a few degrees warmer in the extreme north 
with less precipitation coverage. 


That system exits southern counties late Saturday night into early 
Sunday. So still having mostly dry conditions Sunday into Monday. 


Confidence lowers for Monday into Tuesday with the interaction 
between the large cyclonic middle level circulation off the northeast 
coast and the next disturbance dropping southeast from the northern 
plains. 12z European model (ecmwf) taking that energy much further south compared to 
12z GFS. Do have probability of precipitation increasing back into chance category Monday 
afternoon into Tuesday with some snow possible across WV 
mountains. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
winds will be decreasing some tonight...but decent pressure 
gradient will keep at least some flow through the night. A cold 
front will cross late tonight into Wednesday...with showers. 
Thunder also possible mainly in the mountains. Have MVFR visible and 
ceiling timed with the best chance of precipitation. Could even get brief 
IFR. Current SW to west winds will shift to west to northwest through the taf 
period. 


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


Forecast confidence: high. 


Alternate scenarios: timing of lower ceilings and showers Wednesday 
morning could vary. 


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.
