NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
1027 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 16 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure through the weekend. Cold front possibly toward the 
end of the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
1030 PM update...no major changes were necessary. 


Previous discussion follows... 
lower dewpoints slowly advecting into the 
area...and slowly mixing out the low stratus. Most apparent over 
north central West Virginia and southeast Ohio at this hour. As 
high pressure moves in...expecting the clouds to dissolve into the 
evening hours. This will set the stage for a calm overnight period 
and the development of extensive River Valley fog. Should see this 
coming in early tonight...before 06z in places...and will be 
stubborn to mix out Wednesday. 


All should be quiet over The Lowlands through Wednesday. The 
mountains however...will be exposed to a weak surface trough and 
some low level convergence. This will keep the low clouds in 
place...drizzle...and the temperatures down. Will keep Snowshoe 
below 60f and the Greenbrier valley in the lower 60s. This may even 
be too generous at this point. Feel the local MOS guidance for this 
area is too high as it puts Marlinton at 70f. Keep the probability of precipitation/weather 
unmeasurable. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday night/... 
quiet weather regime to round out the workweek as area under the 
influence of cool northwest flow. There will be some stratocu around at 
times...mostly during the day. The low level flow will turn more southeast 
by Friday which may keep more in the way of cloud cover in the 
mountains. Temperatures look to run 3 to 5 degrees below normal both day 
and night. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
the extended periods will feature a warm up for the weekend ahead of 
the next trough amplification and cold front. Trend has been to delay 
this feature so that Sunday may end up staying dry until late. 
Delayed probability of precipitation and clouds as a result. Once the front blows through and 
the trough settles in...expect another cool shot with highs probably 
staying in the 60s early next week with lows bottoming out well into 
the 40s with some 30s in the colder mountain valleys. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
still some low stratus lingering this evening...mainly along and 
south of a Lind from khts to kcrw to kekn. This is still expected 
to erode somewhat overnight...but think will be slower to clear 
over mountainous sites such as kbkw...which will remain socked in 
IFR/MVFR ceilings through around 15z. 


Otherwise...IFR/LIFR fog will develop in areas of clearing. With 
fog generally developing after 05z. Any fog should lift after 
13-14z...for a return of VFR area wide...except for across higher 
terrain...where MVFR/IFR ceilings may persist through around 15z. 


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




Forecast confidence: medium to high. 


Alternate scenarios: timing and depth of fog overnight could vary 
from forecast. Low ceilings across higher terrain may clear instead of 
lingering overnight. 


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.
