NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
236 PM EDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
an upper level low pressure system will provide a chance of showers 
into Wednesday. Surface high pressure builds from the west 
Thursday. A weak front possible for the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
northwest flow and cold air advection will keep a stratus deck over 
the region into Wednesday. Showers should be most likely this 
afternoon due to maximum low level instability...but with cold air 
advection continuing tonight...some showers remain a possibility. By 
Wednesday...some warm air advection begins which will limit shower 
possibilities considerably. Still enough moisture in the northeast 
that afternoon instabilities might fire a few showers. 


With a stratus deck over the region tonight...will go on the warmer 
side of MOS guidance. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday/... 
with the upper level low trough drifting off the middle Atlantic coast 
and surface high pressure influences from the west coming into 
play...the short term forecast will see a slow clearing through 
Thursday night before the next upper level system barrels in Friday. 


Looking at the lowest levels reveals a good trajectory for upsloping 
precipitation...an extension from the near term forecast...for the 
northeast mountains. Good streamlines and the resultant high 
humidities in the 1000-850mb layer lends weight to this. 
However...will be warm advecting off the surface...so this would 
likely be detrimental to precipitation formation. With competing 
forces at work...will leave the showers at low end chance instead of 
bumping them up into the likely category or higher. Forecast 
soundings indicate the low level moisture will become trapped under 
an inversion...so leaving them in through Thursday looks to be the 
way to go. May need to alter this in upcoming forecasts as drizzle 
may end up being a better option. For now...low stratus and damp is 
a good bet for places in the Tygart Valley. 


The low level moisture will eventually erode Thursday night. 
Then...expecting the next upper level trough axis to push from the 
northwest for Friday. It will be accompanied by a surface 
trough...but indications now are that this system will be moisture 
starved. Preferred the sref probabilities of measured precipitation 
from this issuance and stick to slight chance for now. 


Used the lower side of guidance Friday with the clouds moving back 
in and losing a couple degrees at the 850mb level. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
no major changes necessary to the long term grids. A few weak 
shortwaves will cross the area early in the period. Moisture still 
appears to be limited...so have continued to maintain a dry forecast 
at this time. Upper ridge then builds across the area over the 
weekend and into next week...with continued dry and warm conditions. 
A cold front approaches Tuesday into Wednesday...creating a chance 
for showers...and leading to a drop in temperatures for Wednesday 
into Thursday. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
northwest flow behind a cold front will combine with an upper level 
low pressure system to provide an MVFR stratus deck into Wednesday. 
These systems will produce numerous showers this afternoon...with 
some brief IFR restrictions. Showers will become lighter and more 
scattered overnight. Western and southern portions of the cloud deck 
will become more of a cumulus deck during the day on Wednesday. 


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


Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios: timing of showers and associated restrictions 
could vary.
