NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
619 am EDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure drifts northeast Thursday. Weak cold front moves 
through Friday night. Another front with more available moisture 
Monday night into Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
update... 
bumped up the I-64 corridor highs a notch today. Otherwise...no 
major changes this morning. 


Previous discussion... 
sig weather none. High pressure retreats to the northeast while a 
weakening low pressure system tracks from the middle Mississippi Valley 
into the northern Great Lakes. Frontal boundary will struggle to 
push to the east into the Ohio Valley as steering 500mb remains 
southwesterly parallel to the front. Cirrus clouds will be on the 
slow increase through the near term period. 


850mb temperatures will continue to recover...and will see another 
day of significant temperature improvement. Should end up near 
normal for the afternoon maximum. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Sunday night/... 
advertised weak cool front still on track to enter the area Friday 
night. However...in the zonal flow aloft pattern...a well defined 
split becomes even more defined. It now looks like a portion of the 
northern stream upper trough driving the cold front toward US...will 
drop into the southern stream upper low. With the upper low to stay 
south of the area...moisture inflow into our system and upper 
dynamics have further weakened. The front will so weaken that it 
will wash out as it drops into central West Virginia by Saturday 
morning. Thus...not much at all expected with the front coming into 
our area...and will have very low probability of precipitation confined to northern sections 
of the area ahead of the front later Friday into Friday night. 


On Saturday...high pressure will build over the area...with not much 
cooling at all from the front. Expect sunshine to help boost 
temperatures Saturday back to around the similar 70 degrees forecast 
on Friday. Even warmer Sunday with temperatures well into the 70 
under more high pressure and sunshine. Nights will be near normal 
for this time of year...mainly in the 40s. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Wednesday/... 
generally continued wpc thinking with the long term period. Fairly 
tranquil four days on the whole with a pleasant weekend in 
store...despite a good amount of cloud cover Saturday. Still some 
uncertainty regarding the Monday/Tuesday period as an upper level 
short wave trough and associated cold front push across the area...with the op 
GFS quicker by about 12 hours versus the most recent European model (ecmwf). 
Continued to cap probability of precipitation at middle/high chance with that feature given the 
uncertainty with a slight weight to Monday night and early Tuesday. Temperatures 
will continue near-seasonal throughout...with highs for The Lowlands 
generally low/middle 70s and mins ranging from lower 40s early in the 
period to the low 50s during the later half. 


&& 


Aviation /10z Thursday through Monday/... 
cavu/VFR. Cirrus overspreading the western zones this 
morning...and will see a gradual increase in the cirrus into 
tonight. Ceilings may also lower from 250 to 200...but not enough 
of a change to warrant more than one liners in most cases today. 


Surface flow out of the southeast today under 10kts except for 
bkw. Gusts to 20kts are possible through 19z. 


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


Forecast confidence: high. 


Alternate scenarios: none.
