NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
115 PM EDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will build in tonight and remain on Friday. Dry cold 
front Saturday. High pressure Sunday into Monday. Warming Monday 
into Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
models show clouds from the upper level low will continue to erode 
this afternoon and tonight as a high pressure system builds into the 
area. With clouds clearing and winds becoming calm in western 
portions of the forecast area...there is a question of whether fog 
will form. Some cirrus moving in overnight will attempt to hamper 
fog development...but believe some fog is still possible in the 
normal spots of the western counties where calm winds are expected. 
High pressure will be in control for Friday with only a few higher 
clouds from an upper level trough. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday night/... 
high pressure moves off to the east on Friday allowing a weak 
cold front to move through during the day on Saturday. Very 
limited moisture with this front. Just some some clouds with 
no precipitation expected. 


High pressure moves in late Saturday night and builds 
in during the day on Sunday. Used a blend of current grids and 
consensus guidance throughout. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Wednesday/... 
high pressure takes control Sunday night into Monday. Counting on 
good nocturnal cooling for Sunday night...went colder with minimum 
temperature marginal for frost in The Lowlands. Will hold off 
including in hazardous weather potential at this distance in 
time...5th night. 


500 mb ridge axis passes about Monday night. Will go warming for 
Tuesday and increase winds. 


Confidence lowers for the end of the extended period...Tuesday night 
into Wednesday...timing next 500 mb trough and associated cold front. 
Delayed mention of probability of precipitation for most counties. European model (ecmwf) even slower in its 
12z run with stronger 500 mb trough in the Midwest Wednesday. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Thursday through Monday/... 
models show clouds from the upper level low will gradually raise and 
continue to erode this afternoon and tonight as a high pressure 
system builds into the area. With clouds clearing and winds becoming 
calm in western portions of the forecast area...there is a question 
of whether fog will form. Some cirrus moving in overnight will 
attempt to hamper fog development...but believe some fog is still 
possible in the normal spots of the western counties where calm 
winds are expected. High pressure will be in control for Friday 
providing VFR conditions. 


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


Forecast confidence: high. 


Alternate scenarios: timing of clouds dissipating this afternoon and 
evening could vary. Fog timing...density...and locations overnight 
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.
