NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
326 am EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds in tonight behind an exiting cold front. High 
pressure Wednesday. Warm front moves through early Thursday. 
Stronger cold front Friday night. Cooler Saturday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
high pressure settles in over the central Appalachians for a mostly 
clear and another dry day...but with considerably less wind. 
Temperatures will be about 10 degrees off the pace of 
yesterday...with dewpoints very low once again. 


The dewpoints and resulting relative humidity values become the important part of 
the forecast as the dry conditions continue to dominate the 
forecast. NAM bufr soundings show 900-800mb air drier than -20c. MOS 
guidance typically has trouble handling the daytime mixing of this 
drier air down...so have taken the lowest of the guidance /met/ and 
adjusted these numbers downwards. In the end...will have widespread 
relative humidity values below 25 percent with fuel stick moisture below 8 . 
Only the lack of sustained winds keeps this from being a red flag 
warning scenario. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Saturday/... 
models continue to advertise a wet end to the work week. All agree a 
frontal system will hang up or drift slowly southeast across the 
Ohio Valley Thursday and Friday...with moist and somewhat unstable 
air feeding northward into the front from the Gulf of Mexico. While 
there is uncertainty in the individual short waves/surface waves of 
low pressure that ripple along the front under parallel flow 
aloft...and therefore axis of heaviest rain with the overall 
system...models do agree on a general 1 to 2 inch rain event for our 
area. With all the drying we have had...one to two inch rains over a 
48 hour period would not be enough for water problems. 
However...with possible thunderstorms to enhance amounts...this potential 
will be monitored as we get closer to the event. For now...no 
mention in the hazardous weather outlook. There will be a big swing 
in high temperatures this period...from well in the 70s Thursday 
ahead of the front before much of the heavier clouds and showers 
move in...to the 40s and 50s by Saturday behind the front. Some of 
the rain showers in the northern mountains may change to snow 
showers before mostly ending by Saturday morning as Canadian high 
pressure builds in for the weekend...but little accumulation is 
expected. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Tuesday/... 
the Easter weekend...shaping up to be mainly dry with cool temperatures on 
Saturday and rebounding on Sunday. Next week is looking warm but 
unsettled. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
VFR through the taf period with winds less than 10kts. 


Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 06z Thursday... 


Forecast confidence: high. 


Alternate scenarios: none. 
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.

After 06z Thursday... 
IFR possible in showers and/or storms Thursday night through 
Friday night. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
fuel stick moisture will drop below 8 percent...if it has even been 
able to recover above that during the morning hours now. Daytime 
mixing will cause a significant drop in the dewpoints...and while 
temperatures will not be as warm as yesterday...should see 
widespread relative humidities below 25 percent. With high pressure 
centered over the central Appalachians...winds will be less than 8 
miles per hour.
