NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
345 PM EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
muggy with disturbances aloft bringing rounds of showers/storms 
into tonight. Cool front crosses Tuesday with showers and storms 
drier and more stable air tries to ooze south for Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /through Tuesday/... 
messy flow aloft with several ripples flowing by at 500mb. 
Currently have showers with some isolated thunder drifting NE 
across County Warning Area...with another line of convection in Kentucky...headed toward 
County Warning Area at around 30-35kts. Trying to reflect this line with some 
higher probability of precipitation. For tonight...GFS/NAM/rap all showing one leading 
shortwave/vorticity maximum passing over...so added some higher chance 
probability of precipitation with that. 


Cold front will move through Tuesday with a line of showers and 
storms. Think the front may start washing out as it passes 
through...but still pretty good 500mb shortwave trough crossing 
over...so have likely probability of precipitation moving through along and ahead of that. 
NAM soundings showing around 1500+j/kg cape...but think that is 
overdone...especially with cloud cover in place much of the day. 
However...have decent shear maximum moving through Ohio -- 35-40kts -- 
combined with some low level convergence so cannot rule out strong 
to possibly severe storms. Also note that Storm Prediction Center has added a slight 
risk for Ohio Valley portion of County Warning Area...so will go ahead and add 
that to severe weather potential statement. Strong to damaging winds would be the most likely 
threat. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday night through Thursday night/... 
as we enter September...the late Summer pattern seems to hold...as 
we reside where fronts come to weaken/die. The southern ridge 
occasionally weakens allowing front in the westerlies to move into 
the area...but weaken as they try to move further south. Such is 
the case Tuesday night. 


Drying aloft in the wake of the front for Wednesday with more stable 
air...but will be less aggressive dropping the surface dew points 
too much with the expected wet vegetation. Will hold onto some slight 
chance probability of precipitation in far SW Virginia for Wednesday afternoon. 


Picture lots of low stratus at dawn Wednesday in the western 
lowlands of West Virginia into tri state around heights. Did not 
include surface fog yet...but that may also occur. 


With some weak southeast flow developing Thursday...did continue our slight 
chance probability of precipitation developing up the eastern slopes...including the 
southern mountains around Beckley. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
heating back up...as the southern 500 mb ridge builds back north for 
Friday. Some afternoon convection could occur Friday...but probability of precipitation 
mostly 20 and 30 percent. 


Per wpc medium coordination...continue to trend slower than the GFS 
on the next front. 12z GFS quickly dries out our northern counties 
Saturday evening into Sunday. Prefer the slower ecwmf solution at 
this time...increased probability of precipitation into likely category on Saturday into 
Saturday evening. Holding some chance probability of precipitation even into Sunday morning 
for northern counties...and into Sunday night for southern 
counties. Dry Monday...except again some slight chance probability of precipitation along 
the eastern slopes. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Monday through Saturday/... 
last bits of the low MVFR stratus finally lifting. Overall expect 
VFR conditions through the evening...however isolated to scattered 
showers will drift NE across forecast area and any shower that 
passes over a taf site could produce MVFR or even IFR. Included 
vcsh or thunderstorms in the vicinity. Did include tempos at crw and heights for the line of 
showers coming through Kentucky. Winds are a bit gusty through the 
afternoon out of the SW. 


Fairly low confidence tonight with combination of fog and clouds. 
Leaned toward lav probabilities for visibility with scattered to broken 
cloud deck. For tomorrow will have showers and storms moving in 
from the west...MVFR to IFR may be needed as confidence increases 
in timing. 


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


Forecast confidence: medium...but low tonight. 


Alternate scenarios: timing and density of fog may vary tonight. 
May need amendment for convection. 


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.
