NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
650 PM EDT Monday may 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
increasingly warm and humid air mass. Middle/upper disturbances will bring 
rounds of showers and thunderstorms through the week. 


&& 


Near term /through Tuesday/... 
will hold onto chance probability of precipitation through the night in tri state around heights...then 
will increase probability of precipitation further east and north toward predawn hours...after 08z. 
So have probability of precipitation increasing from the south...as most model solutions show a 
500 mb vorticity maximum passing and lifting north during the morning...then exiting 
northern counties after 18z. Thinking next disturbance approaches from 
west-southwest toward evening. Still difficult to figure coverage of the overnight 
and morning showers...plus what affects morning convection has on 
redevelopment late in the day. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday night through Thursday/... 
deep layer S to SW flow with Atlantic ridge to the east and 
trough to the west. A few disturbances in SW flow will provide a 
kicker for any shower development. Timing these features is 
difficult...thus will carry convective development into the 
overnight hours. Main focus for convection will be during the 
afternoon hours with presence of diurnal heating. Will continue 
mention with Storm Prediction Center marginal risk Tuesday and Wednesday while also covering for 
heavy downpours. 


For temperatures...stayed mainly with inherited values...with a slight 
blend toward latest guidance values with did not result in much 
change in forecast trends. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
followed along with wpc guidance through the long term. Front 
crosses late in the period with some cooling and drying north and 
west. Still not confident enough to drop probability of precipitation completely out of 
the forecast so late in the period...with front being in the 
area. Thus...Summer like broad brush of chance probability of precipitation carry through 
much of the forecast period. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
confidence still set at medium...with uncertainty on the coverage 
of showers with embedded thunderstorm overnight into Tuesday 
morning...plus timing new rounds of convection arriving from the west-southwest late 
in the day Tuesday. 


Have layered clouds at 4 to 8 thousand feet broken/overcast thickening from the SW overnight. 
Visibility 4 to 5 miles in any showers. Could be an embedded thunderstorm in 
eastern Kentucky...southwest Virginia...southeast Ohio...and western West 
Virginia...but probability of precipitation too low to insert in specific taf forecasts. 


Will try to have an enhanced area of showers arriving on either side of 
dawn Tuesday from the south. So will have some 5 miles in showers with 
that enhancement. 


Thinking increase in the clouds will prevent late night thick fog in 
mountain valleys around Elkins...currently have some MVFR in fog. 


New convection may form during the afternoon...but timing uncertain and what 
affects morning showers will have on the redevelopment. Current thinking 
is...if any redevelopment it would be late in the day or not until evening... 
after 21z Tuesday. 


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


Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios: timing of convection may differ from 
forecast. 


After 00z Wednesday...local IFR in showers/storms Tuesday night into 
Wednesday morning...and rain induced low stratus and fog. IFR may 
linger through mountains counties Wednesday afternoon. 


&& 


Rlx watches/warnings/advisories... 
WV...none. 
Ohio...none. 
Kentucky...none. 
Virginia...none.
