NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
903 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
cold front approaches Wednesday...good chances for storms into Thursday. 
Secondary wave Thursday. Drier air arrives later on Thursday with a 
brief high pressure taking control. Wet weather next weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
made a few minor tweeks with probability of precipitation...as persistant showers over the 
ridgetops of the northern mountains are finally starting to wind 
down with the loss of heating. Otherwise rest of forecast on track. 


Previous discussion... 
warm and muggy conditions across the County Warning Area as expected. Diurnal cumulus 
has developed across the County Warning Area this afternoon. Surface high pressure 
off to the east creating a southeasterly flow across the 
mountains...creating the possibility for an isolated 
shower/thunderstorm this afternoon and evening. Still looking like 
any convection that is able to develop should stay over mountains 
with overall weak flow pattern in place. 


Expecting another warm and muggy night across the County Warning Area...with fog 
development only expected in Deep Mountain valleys. Increased bl 
flow...particularly across the north...should help to keep much 
fog development at Bay...and keep temperatures on the warm 
side...particularly across far northern zones. 


Surface cold front and upper trough approach the region on 
Wednesday. Cold front should enter southeast Ohio zones 
18-21z...and end up to the east of the mountains late Wednesday 
night/Thursday morning. Still not expecting a widespread severe 
event. Good cape/instability particularly south of the Ohio River 
where less cloud cover is expected in afternoon hours...but no 
real strong dynamics...and 0-6km bulk shear only 20-25 kts. 
However...could still get severe hail or damage winds with any storm 
that develops. Will maintain this in the severe weather potential statement. Storm Prediction Center has area in a 
see text for severe Wednesday. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Thursday night/... 
by late Wednesday night...cold front expected to be crossing east 
across the Appalachians...allowing drier but weak northerly flow. 
Therefore...likely probability of precipitation still expected in the beginning of the 
period...quickly improving by early Thursday morning. Expect a 
cool and muggy night as temperatures reach their 
dewpoints...perhaps producing areas of fog under clear skies. 


Decreased probability of precipitation to slight chance by 12-15z Thursday with chances 
along the mountains before all move east away from the area by middle 
day Thursday. Models agree in a secondary shortwave shortly behind 
the axis of the upper level trough passing across the area 
Thursday...so hold on into chance probability of precipitation across the western slopes 
through Thursday afternoon. 


Elsewhere...most of the lowland will probably remain dry with maximum 
temperatures only in the upper 70s. A bit of a tough call on sky 
cover...coded up partly cloudy skies for the afternoon hours for 
The Lowlands but some indication that a fairly extensive cumulus field 
may redevelop underneath aforementioned inversion. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Tuesday/... 
used HPC guidance for most of the weather elements with a few 
minor tweaks through the period. 


Light northerly flow turns west and southwest as a surface high 
pressure builds from the west Friday into early Saturday. Although 
northwest flow at 500 mb weakens some 500 mb...a shortwave is expected by 
models to slide across our area later Saturday into Sunday. This 
feature could bring chances for rain showers or storms by the 
second half of the weekend. 


A large occluding system meanders south through Monday...as cut- 
off low develops over the Great Lakes. Both European model (ecmwf) and GFS in 
fairly good agreement in playing out this scenario late in the 
period for a general upswing in precipitation chances by early 
Monday. 


Weak and fresh northerly flow prevails behind the front Tuesday 
with pleasant temperatures expected. 


&& 


Aviation /01z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
VFR conditions during the taf period. Patchy MVFR/IFR fog in Deep 
Mountain valleys possible mainly after 06-09z...with any fog 
projected to burn off 12-13z for a return to VFR. 


A cold front will push south towards the area on Wednesday...with 
increased chances for showers and thunderstorms mainly after 16z. 
Expect brief MVFR/IFR conditions in vicinity of storms...along 
with the possibility for large hail and strong wind gusts. 


Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 00z Thursday... 


Forecast confidence: high. 


Alternate scenarios: timing of any fog development could 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.
