NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
917 am EDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
dry warm front Thursday. A weak cold front crosses Friday...followed 
by another on Saturday. Low pressure approaches Monday and crosses 
midweek...then much cooler. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
915 am update...cancelled remaining freeze warning as temperatures 
have risen above freezing in the previously warned area. 


Previous discussion... 
models showing a moisture starved warm front pushing northward 
today. With dry air in the low levels...no precipitation is 
expected...just some clouds. 


Winds pick up tonight in advance of an approaching system. Due to 
the winds...will go above MOS guidance for lows at most 
locations...and with the warmer MOS guidance in the protected 
mountain valleys. Based on the current model runs...will slow down 
arrival of probability of precipitation slightly. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Sunday/... 
models continue to indicate a middle-level shortwave and a weak cold 
front will push across the area on Friday. Previous forecast still 
appears to be on track with the frontal timing and the associated 
precipitation. So...only some minor tweaks were made. 


High pressure will build in from the southwest by late Friday... 
bringing the rain chances to an end. However...a second weak cold 
front is expected to push southeast into the late Saturday into 
Saturday night. Models indicate little in the way of precipitation 
with the front...and they limit the little precipitation to our 
northern counties. Because of this...will maintain low probability of precipitation far 
north for Saturday. 


Behind this front...high pressure will build south...which should 
result in dry weather. The latest European model (ecmwf) suggests that precipitation 
chances will increase on Sunday as the front starts working north as 
a warm front. The GFS indicates the region should remain dry on 
Sunday. 


Will leave dry for now. But will have to monitor the models for 
possible inclusion on the chance of showers on Sunday. 


Based on expected weather and latest MOS...have only made minor 
tweaks to temperatures Friday and Friday night. Latest MOS guidance is 
warmer for highs on Saturday...and have tweaked our temperatures up 
a little to reflect this trend. 


Did not make any real changes to temperatures for Saturday night and 
Sunday. Latest guidance for highs on Sunday suggest temperatures 
will be warmer than previously thought...and have once again tweaked 
our expected highs up. But I stayed below guidance to better match 
up with our neighboring offices. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Wednesday/... 
active and cooler pattern to take hold in the long term. Beginning 
of period will start out warm...as a warm frontal boundary lifts 
north on Monday. This boundary will remain across the County Warning Area for Monday 
through Tuesday...with chances for precipitation as several waves 
move along the front. Frontal boundary will sweep across the area as 
a cold front Tuesday night and Wednesday...as low pressure moves 
north and east...as upper trough deepens across the eastern U.S. 
This will start the transition into the cooler...wet period for the 
remainder of the extended period...possibly into the weekend. Morale 
of the story...enjoy the nice weather now. 


&& 


Aviation /13z Thursday through Monday/... 
VFR conditions can be expected today and this evening...despite some 
VFR clouds from a warm front. A cold front will arrive from the west 
late tonight...providing some ceiling and visibility restrictions in 
rain showers. 


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


Forecast confidence: high. 


Alternate scenarios: none.
