 Flash Flood Watch  Statement as of 3:22 PM EDT on July 7, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Wednesday
evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northeast Kentucky... southeast Ohio... southwest
Virginia and West Virginia... including the following areas...
in northeast Kentucky... Boyd... Carter... Greenup and Lawrence
KY. In southeast Ohio... Athens... Gallia... Jackson OH...
Lawrence OH... Morgan... Meigs... Perry... Vinton and Washington.
In southwest Virginia... Buchanan and Dickenson. In West
Virginia... Barbour... Boone... Braxton... Cabell... Calhoun...
Clay... Doddridge... Fayette... Gilmer... Harrison... Jackson WV...
Kanawha... Lewis... Lincoln... Logan... Mason... McDowell... Mingo...
   Nicholas... Pleasants... Pocahontas... Putnam... Raleigh...
Randolph... Ritchie... Roane... Taylor... Tyler... Upshur... Wayne...
   Webster... Wirt... wood and Wyoming.

* Through Wednesday evening

* showers and thunderstorms are expected to increase in coverage
this afternoon and tonight. Rounds of showers and storms will
persist on Wednesday... as a front stalls in our vicinity.

* Due to the recent rounds of showers and storms... the ground is
wetter than normal. That allows for faster runoff... and
quicker rises on small streams and creeks. Rains of 1 to 2
inches in less than a few hours could cause vulnerable streams
to flood. Local rain amounts of 2.5 inches or more could cause
more serious flash flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a dangerous situation.

Those living along flood prone creeks... plus County and state
officials... should monitor water levels frequently during any
heavier showers. Be prepared to take action should water levels
rise quickly... or a Flash Flood Warning is posted.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
745 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Synopsis... 
cold front approaches from Midwest tonight... stalling near Ohio 
River Wednesday. Frontal oscillates north again Wednesday 
night...then south again Thursday. Flash flood concerns. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
745pm update... 
showers and thunderstorms...scattered in nature...continue to 
traverse the County Warning Area as the cold front approaches. Synoptic assessment 
of the atmosphere is largely unchained...however...have adjusted 
pop timings based on radar trends over the next few hours. 


Previous discussion... 
the active weather continues in the near term period. Cold 
front...at 1730z stretched across NE in southwest into central 
in. Out ahead of the front...prefrontal showers and isolated storms 
starting to kick off in the warm humid unstable atmosphere. Area 
of heavier rain/storms currently along the Ohio River area...aided 
by low level jet...which will spread eastward into our area this evening. 
Near term models such as the hrrr show this area of precipitation 
weakening as it approaches our region...but will definitely be a 
spot to watch...and appears as though will mostly affect NE Kentucky 
counties...and Ohio/WV counties along the Ohio River. 


Precipitable water values out ahead of the front prognosticated to rise to around 2 
inches...and satellite imagery across Indiana/western Ohio 
indicates precipitable water values at 1.7 to 2 inches. This...combined with 30-40 
kts at lower to middle levels of atmosphere...could see some storms 
this afternoon/evening...mainly across southeast Ohio and NE Kentucky 
produce damage winds/downdrafts. 


Bigger threat area wide is the threat of flash flooding. With 
recent rains...and a saturated ground...any storm could produce a 
localized flooding issue. Storms will move well...but with the 
area to remain in the moist...humid atmosphere...as frontal 
boundary approaches then stalls out near Ohio River area...and 
upper waves crossing/enhancing precipitation at times...a flash Flood Advisory has 
been issued. Decided to go ahead and expand the flash Flood Advisory across the 
southern zones this afternoon. A couple of the models are 
indicating the possibility of a wave moving across the south on 
Wednesday...and with recent flooding in those areas...decided to 
err on the side of caution. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Thursday night/... 
a slow moving cold front approaches from the northwest Tuesday night 
and stalls over extreme norther portions of WV Wednesday night. The 
GFS and European model (ecmwf) show differences in their quantitative precipitation forecast fields with this system. 
A weak surface low pressure develops along the front over Ohio moving into 
southeast Ohio and portions of WV by 12z Wednesday. The GFS is more 
aggressive with an h500 vorticity maximum along this feature to enhance 
periods of precipitation Wednesday night and Thursday. Therefore...kept 
chance probability of precipitation Wednesday night and increased probability of precipitation to likely Thursday. 
Expect active weather with showers and thunderstorms...some with 
heavy rain...moving mainly northeast...with precipitable water 
around 2 inches on Thursday...dropping to around 1.77 inches by 12z 
Friday. 


The weak low pressure moves northeast of the area by 00a 
Thursday...leaving a quasi stationary frontal boundary across the 
area keeping chances for precipitation into Thursday. 


Another but stronger surface low pressure moves quickly east from Ohio to 
PA on Thursday...keeping the area under a juicy southwest flow and 
chances for additional rainfall. This low will push the frontal 
boundary further south and likely wash out across the forecast area 
Thursday night. Therefore...allowed probability of precipitation back to chance across the 
area with 50s along the mountains. 


Tweaked previous high and low temperatures through the period. 
Lowered highs on Thursday per abundant cloudiness and precipitation expected. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Tuesday/... 
high pressure builds over the lower Great Lakes region 
Friday...pushing a diffuse frontal boundary further south. This will 
bring drier conditions mainly across the north Friday through Friday 
night. However...additional disturbances will cross the area 
keeping the pattern unsettled through the weekend with chances for 
showers and thunderstorms. 


With the grounds already saturated...will have to continue 
monitoring the weather closely each day due to water concerns. 


Went with wpc thinking with few tweaks on probability of precipitation...temperatures and 
sky cover through the period. 


&& 


Aviation /23z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
cold front will drop to the southeast...and then stall over the 
Ohio Valley...continuing the theme of showers with isolated to 
scattered thunderstorms within. While visibilities can vary in 
storms...the wind over 5kts should help keep them up in between 
showers...and keep the lowest levels mixed enough to prevent IFR 
ceilings. 


Chances for rain remain high through the taf 
period...thus...prevailing showers...with thunderstorms in the vicinity/cumulonimbus at times is the 
norm for this forecast. Because it blankets the entire 
period...must keep the confidence at medium. 


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


Forecast confidence: low to medium. 


Alternate scenarios: timing of showers and convection to 
vary...and may need to add periods of no weather in later 
forecasts or amendments. Need to watch bkw ceiling for IFR. Brief 
IFR in any shower or storm is possible. 


After 00 Thursday... 
IFR possible in showers and thunderstorms near the frontal 
boundary Wednesday into Thursday. Potential for low stratus and 
fog at night in the muggy air.
