NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
148 am EDT Friday Apr 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
a weak cold front crosses Friday...followed by another on Saturday. 
Low pressure approaches Monday and crosses midweek...followed by 
much cooler weather for the latter part of the week. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
130 am update... 
only a few cosmetic changes per latest trends...but general 
forecast appears on track. Precipitation currently across central Kentucky and 
moving northeast should push into the far western zones around the 
09z time frame. 


1030 PM update... 
made minor adjustments to temperature trends through 
Friday...otherwise forecast is on track. Also increased the chance for 
thunder with two opportunities...one in early morning Theta-E 
advection and a better chance...if not likelihood...in the 
afternoon heating and the cold frontal passage. Also have stronger 
environmental wind gusts Friday afternoon into Friday nt...upper 20s 
kts. 


8 PM update... 
slowed onset of showers in the west until after 06z based on latest 
model timing including the near terms. Forecast otherwise on track. 


Previous discussion... 
winds have picked up some...which has really mixed out the moisture 
with dewpoints dropping into the teens in many areas. Area of high 
level scattered to broken clouds drifting NE through the 
afternoon. Surface low currently over Iowa approaches 
tonight...and moves across Southern Lake Erie Friday with a weak 
cold front crossing County Warning Area. Have some upper level support as a 500mb 
shortwave trough passes by as well...helping to strengthen...or at 
least maintain...the surface low. Models have trended a bit 
slower with this...which would make sense with a bit stronger 
surface low and have slowed down and increased probability of precipitation. Also added 
some isolated thunder...do not expect any widespread thunder 
anticipating something much like the front earlier this week with 
a cell or two that lights up. 


Blended warmer met into lows tonight...which is still a touch 
cooler than previous forecast. Also trended a degree or two cooler 
Friday with more clouds/rain. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Sunday/... 
models have the front and short wave exiting early Friday 
night...with lingering showers in the mountains ending before 
midnight. Drier air will move in with weak high pressure Friday 
night...leading to cooler temperatures Friday night. 


A secondary and weaker front will drop southward through the area 
Saturday and Saturday night...bringing just mainly clouds due to a 
lack of moisture and dynamics. Not much temperature change behind 
the front from that experienced on Friday...with highs Saturday 
again in the 70s. Saturday night will be cool again under weak high 
pressure...but mainly due to the drier air and light winds. 


Southerly flow returns under plenty of sunshine Sunday as the high 
shifts east...allowing for a nice end to the weekend...with 
temperatures rising well into the 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
warm frontal boundary will lift north across the region on 
Monday...with warmer...and unstable air across the area. Frontal 
boundary will wind up across Ohio by Tuesday. With the 
warm...unstable airmass in place...combined with multiple waves 
moving across the area...will see an increased chance for showers 
and thunderstorms. Precipitable water values by Tuesday will rise to around 1.4 
inches...which is well above normal for this time of year...so may 
get some heavy downpours with any convection that develops. 


Remainder of period will continue to remain cool...and 
unsettled...as upper low forms across and continues to meander 
across the central U.S. In a Rex block type pattern. Increased probability of precipitation 
across County Warning Area for the period...and trended temperatures towards the 
cooler side of guidance. With the prolonged period of rain...several 
inches are expected next week. At this point...will not highlight 
any potential for water issues...but will continue to monitor 
instead. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Friday through Tuesday/... 
VFR conditions expected to prevail most of the night. A cold front 
will push through Friday bringing MVFR in showers...with a couple of 
opportunities for thunderstorms...first in the morning...then with 
the cold front itself crossing during the afternoon creating a 
second...better chance for thunderstorms throughout most of the 
area...with gusty winds possible. 


Scattering of low deck will take place west to east by the end of 
the taf period...06z Sat. Point soundings indicate the potential 
for IFR stratus forming Post-front mainly in the eastern mountains 
around the 22z-03z time frame before beginning to scatter towards 
the end of the valid period...but continued low MVFR ceilings for now. 




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


Forecast confidence: high. 


Alternate scenarios: timing of flight Cat changes with showers 
may vary...as may the gusty winds Friday. 


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.
