NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
320 PM EDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


Synopsis... 
warm front crosses tonight into Saturday. Turning hot and more 
humid Saturday in deep southwest flow. Moisture increases in that 
flow...with an upper level disturbance from the Gulf Crossing Sunday. 


&& 


Near term /through Saturday/... 
clear to start beneath upper level ridge...as surface high moves 
offshore. Cumulus was starting to pop across SW Virginia and southwestern WV...along 
and S of a warm front there. Have schc / isolated convection there late 
this afternoon into this evening. 


Any early evening convection will likely die with the sunset...but 
then refire overnight over central portions of the area as elevated 
convection ahead of the advancing warm front...along axis of 345k 
850 mb Theta-E and negative showalter. Have 20 kts of feed...30 kts west 
of the Ohio River but no real focused low level jet spatially and forcing is 
weak...so expect area coverage overnight into Sat to be scattered at 
best. Latest near term models have actually backed off on 
convection late overnight into Sat morning. 


Afternoon convection may fire along and SW of the warm front over 
the northern WV mountains Sat. Convection may also start firing over the 
western fringes of the forecast area late Sat...as the first of a series of 
waves coming out of the Gulf of Mexico...ahead of an upper level short wave 
trough approaching from the west...approaches. 


Liked higher met values for lows tonight...blended in bias corrected 
version. Little change on highs Sat...which are between the met and 
mav. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday/... 
Saturday night - Sunday... area remains under SW flow aloft as a 
short wave trough progresses eastward across the Great Lakes. Deep layer 
moisture will arrive overnight Saturday night and...along with an 
approaching short wave trough from the SW...will increase probability of precipitation to 
categorical by 12z sun for most lowland locations. It appears that 
there will be two waves of precipitation Sunday...with the first wave 
crossing west/SW to NE during the morning hours and a second wave 
towards the late afternoon and early evening hours. Without being more 
deterministic than the science can offer...did make an attempt to 
depict the two waves of precipitation with categorical probability of precipitation with 
each...surrounded by likely and high chance probability of precipitation. Did in fact 
lower probability of precipitation to high chance for locations to the northwest of the 
mountains around the 18z-21z time frame...when and where cross 
section analysis indicates decent downward motion almost up to 
500mb in the S/southeast downsloping flow. In reality...precise timing of 
convective precipitation is a bit tough and may certainly vary...but in 
the end do believe that by the time Sunday comes to an end many 
locations will see some precipitation Sunday. Generally expecting around 
a half inch...with the usual higher amounts in stronger storms. 
Will leave the potential for flash flooding in the severe weather potential statement as there is 
some potential for training cells. Previous forecast had a good handle on 
maximum temperatures...still expecting general low 80s in The Lowlands. 


Sunday evening - Monday... prognosticated second batch of precipitation will be 
exiting to the northeast middle/late evening. Lingered slight/low 
chance probability of precipitation through the entire overnight period for most locations 
with a decent amount of low level moisture remaining yet suspect that 
most lowlands will be dry after midnight-2am heading into Monday 
morning. However...another short wave with lesser moisture will be arriving 
for Labor Day and have middle/high chance probability of precipitation with this feature by Monday 
afternoon...which previous forecast had a good handle on. Maximum temperatures Monday 
will be similar to Sunday/S...perhaps a degree or two warmer. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
long term period can generally be characterized by zonal flow aloft. 
Leaned wpc for the most part with a few tweaks here and there. Warm 
and muggy conditions will continue for the most part with periodic 
disturbances and subsequent mainly diurnally-driven precipitation chances. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Friday through Wednesday/... 
VFR afternoon and evening. Fog will begin forming overnight...but 
middle and high cloud associated with a warm front approaching from 
the SW...will stop it dead in its tracks most sites at MVFR or 
better. Exception is ekn which will likely have dense fog by 06z 
again...but even there...the fog should thin out as the clouds 
increase. A thunderstorms is possible in the afternoon heat in the 
mountains on Sat. 


Light and variable surface flow will become light S to SW on Sat...while 
flow aloft remains light SW. 


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


Forecast confidence: medium to high. 


Alternate scenarios: timing...extent and dissipation of fog 
overnight tonight depending upon timing of clouds associated with 
the approaching warm front. 


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.
