NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
811 am EDT Wednesday Aug 27 2014 


Synopsis... 
weak cold front crosses this afternoon into tonight. Weak high 
pressure dominates Thursday and Friday. Hooter and more humid 
Saturday. Deeper moisture Sunday associated with disturbance aloft. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
synoptically...surface front currently crossing Northwest Ohio and north 
Indiana. Anticipate the front reaching northwest County Warning Area around 15z...crossing 
the Ohio River 19z-20z...all the while weakening as it sinks south. 
Have best chance of probability of precipitation along the front during the 
afternoon...gradually fading into tonight. Front looks to clear County Warning Area 
to the south...but enough moisture remains to kept slight chance 
probability of precipitation in southern quarter of County Warning Area through the night. Based on forecast 
soundings...expect low stratus deck to develop in mainly WV/Virginia 
portions of County Warning Area overnight with light north/northwest flow in the boundary 
layer. 


Met continues to perform well on high temperatures in this pattern...so 
leaned that way...cooling highs maybe a degree average across County Warning Area. 
Used a consensus blend for lows...cooling the north a touch and 
warming the south. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Saturday/... 
still thought the 00z NAM solution was a bit quick/fast drying out 
the low level moisture...left in the dew point gradient associated 
with the weakening front. So will hold onto a slight chance probability of precipitation in 
some of our southern WV and southwest Virginia counties Thursday 
morning...mainly bkw on SW. By afternoon...will have that slight 
chance probability of precipitation lingering for a shower or storm just in our 2 Virginia 
counties Thursday afternoon. Certainly the further north/northeast 
on Thursday...the drier the air. 


The 500 mb ridge axis moves over US on Friday...so we lose the northwest 
flow aloft. At or below 850 mbs though the weak flow is somewhat southeast and 
upslope into our eastern slopes. Will continue the chance probability of precipitation 
Friday afternoon from our Greenbrier valley on SW in the southern WV 
mountains to SW Virginia. 


The only chance made to Saturday was to increase maximum 
temperature. The last of the dry air that was shoved on the way 
down into the deep south will return NE...through our vicinity on 
Saturday. 850 mbs temperatures near 20c. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
used wpc thinking with some tweaks. West to southwest flow with 
several middle-level disturbances will result in on and off chances 
of showers and storms. A cold front will approach from the 
northwest late in the period...with this feature possibly pushing 
across the area by late Wednesday. 


Best chance of getting wet still appears to be on Sunday...when a 
decent shortwave passes by. 


Wpc temperatures looked good and were generally used. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
fog has been a bit more sporadic this morning than last. 
Anticipate any remaining fog dissipating by 13z. VFR conditions 
should be in place today. As a cold front approaches from the 
northwest...will see some showers and maybe a rumble of thunder...mainly 
across western County Warning Area today. Have mention of thunderstorms in the vicinity at pkb and heights. May 
need to expand it farther east based on trends later this 
afternoon. Did not include any restrictions with the precipitation...but 
cannot rule out the need for an amendment/tempo should a cell 
approach a terminal this afternoon/evening. 


Forecast soundings indicate some low stratus tonight...especially 
across the mountains and into the eastern WV lowlands. Farther 
east...clouds could scatter out and some fog would be possible. 
Overall fairly low confidence on exact low stratus vs. Fog line. 


Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 12z Thursday... 


Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios: timing and density of fog/low stratus may vary 
tonight. 


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.
