NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
932 am EST Sat Feb 6 2016 


Synopsis... 
high pressure builds into Sunday...with a tranquil February 
environment. Cold front Monday. Unsettled/colder Tuesday and 
Wednesday under middle/upper level low...with rounds of snow showers. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
930 am update...just minor changes to temperatures with this 
forecast update to align them with current observations and 
trends. Other than that...pretty basic forecast for the weekend 
with cool high pressure overhead and scattered clouds. 




Previous discussion... 
a surface high pressure remains in control with dry and cool weather. 
Satellite images and surface observation show high level clouds moving 
northeast across the area. Expect these clouds to continue 
covering the skies through tonight. 


Temperatures will be near normal. Generally in the middle 40s 
lowlands to upper 30s highest elevations for highs. Lows will 
depend on cloud cover tonight. Since expecting mostly clear 
skies...light and variable to calm winds after the lower 
atmosphere decouples...temperatures will drop into the middle to 
upper 20s. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Tuesday/... 
significant changes in airmass and precipitation characterize the 
short term forecast with a well advertised upper level low diving 
into the southern Great Lakes from the upper Mississippi Valley. 
Since the operational NAM/GFS/ECMWF are in fairly good 
agreement...relied on the NAM for the details for the upper level 
system and the surface system counterpart as they traverse the Ohio 
Valley/central Appalachians. 


Initial band of showers expected with the front...and once 
again...have used low to middle level deformation to time the arrival 
and passage of this feature. Expecting a sliver of dry air behind 
the cold front...and tried to represent this in a marked decrease in 
cloud cover and dropping probability of precipitation to slight chance. Timing of this is 
always tricky...however. Should be completely resaturated in the 
lower levels across the entire County Warning Area by 06z Tuesday in the cold air 
advection. Have snow chances increasing early Monday night into the 
likely/categorical through much of Tuesday...but this is more of an 
autoconvective scenario as opposed to an upslope condition due to the 
1000-850mb streamlines that are more westerly than 
northwesterly/perpendicular to the mountains. Not discounting the 
terrain influences completely though. 850mb temperatures drop into 
the lower minus teens Monday night through Tuesday. 


Due to the timing...expect very little temperature recovery Monday 
with the frontal passage during the day. Also...have taken the maximum 
temperatures for Tuesday down from the guidance numbers a few 
notches...with the thinking that above freezing values will not be a 
good play here. Guidance tends to overplay these situations and have 
the area too warm...so will keep it cold area wide. 


For amounts...not too many changes in snow from the previous 
forecast. Despite it not being a perfect upslope situation as 
previously mentioned...think there will be better enhancement of the 
snowfall in the higher elevations. But for the most part...this will 
be a slow accumulation of snow over time in off and on snow showers 
and squalls over The Lowlands. As far as future headline 
considerations GOES...a lot will depend on duration/how long it 
takes to get the accumulations...which as of right now...spans 
well into double digit hours. Severe weather potential statement will be highlighted as such. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Friday/... 
after the initial support swings through on Monday...probability of precipitation increase 
again Monday night...with Upper/Middle level low dropping into Ohio 
and surface low trying to take shape toward Delaware-Maryland-Virginia. 


GFS and European model (ecmwf) similar now...with 500 middle level low in our vicinity 
around 18z Tuesday. Old solutions over the past few days...of middle 
level low going to our south...seems less likely now. Weakening 500 
mb trough remains in vicinity into Wednesday...with the colder 850 mb 
temperatures still advecting in on Wednesday. Have min temperatures near zero 
at or below 4 thousand feet Wednesday night. Only apparent temperatures at Wind 
Chill Advisory also mostly at or above 4 thousand feet. So not Worth highlighting 
in the hazardous weather potential. 


Rounds of snow showers still expected Monday night into Wednesday. 
Also still tried to keep our probability of precipitation higher than guidance in the moist low 
level thermal trough and moisture depth still up to 10 thousand feet. 


Picturing at this distance in time...a lot of 1 to 3 inches of snow 
in lowlands over 12 hours...and 2 to 4 inches over mountain counties 
Monday night into Tuesday night. So thinking more toward winter weather 
advisories than taking the Winter Storm Watch/warning Avenue. Of 
course...over 48 hours amounts will add up over the mountains. Will 
include in hazardous weather potential. 


Low confidence for day 6 and 7...in the 100+ knot 250 mb flow from the 
west northwest. Could easily see some clipper action...but 
uncertainty is in the timing. Included 20 probability of precipitation for now for 
Thursday night and Friday. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
surface high pressure will provide dry weather...with light 
southerly winds through the period. Despite of a dry 
atmosphere...high cirrus clouds will be common Saturday. 


VFR conditions will prevail as a surface high pressure remains in 
control through Saturday night. BUFKIT soundings and surface observation show 
a very dry atmosphere in the boundary layer. 


Surface flow will be light mainly SW today. 


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


Forecast confidence...high. 


Alternate scenarios: none.
