NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
640 am EDT Thursday Jul 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front crosses today. Mainly dry through the weekend except 
for low chances across the north. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
cold front crossing the area along the Ohio River this morning with 
scattered showers and storms ahead of it. Expect the front to 
exit the eastern mountains by early afternoon. Meanwhile...brief 
heavy downpours will be possible with the heavier storms. 


Drier air filters if behind the front from the northwest providing 
dry conditions for the rest of the day through tonight. Clearing 
will spread from west to east by middle day trough this evening. 


Temperatures will moderate into the middle 80s this afternoon...and 
into the middle 60s tonight. Used super blend for temperatures 
through the period. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Saturday/... 
really nothing happening under high pressure...except for a weak 
surface trough Friday night which will bring a chance of showers 
along the northern tier of counties in southeast Ohio and north 
central West Virginia. This will keep temperatures from climbing 
back to the 90 degree mark for The Lowlands. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
despite the broad trough aloft over the area...only significant 
weather system is a cold front slated for the Tuesday and Tuesday 
night time frame. Will need to watch the operational models to see 
if this creeps in earlier in the period. Otherwise...normal to 
slightly above normal temperatures prevail...with dry conditions 
outside of the aforementioned front. 


&& 


Aviation /10z Thursday through Monday/... 
IFR/MVFR conditions along with showers or storms possible this 
morning...mainly at crw...bkw...and ekn. The rainfall activity is 
associated with a crossing cold front which will move to the 
eastern mountains early this afternoon. VFR/MVFR conditions will 
prevail across rest of sites. 


Winds will turn northwest behind the front this morning spreading 
from northwest to southeast into the afternoon. Drier airmass will 
filter in behind the front allowing clearing to spread from west 
to east this afternoon. VFR conditions will prevail behind the 
front this afternoon and evening. 


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


Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios...timing and intensity showers and storms this 
morning may vary. Low stratus could linger longer than expected. 


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.
