NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
603 am EDT Monday Aug 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
fairly humid weak ahead...but with upper ridge and lack of 
organized surface features only isolated to scattered 
showers/storms expected with diurnal trend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
models show an 500 mb short wave evident in vorticity charts over 
western NC...eastern Kentucky and southwest Virginia moving north northeast 
today. This system is producing extensive upper to middle level 
clouds across the region. Radar images show areas of light rain 
showers moving across the Appalachians from east to west. Went 
with low chance probability of precipitation over the mountains and western slopes through 
this evening. 


Another middle level disturbance is evident over the Ohio Valley. 
Models indicate that this system will remain stationary there. It 
is still uncertain if this system will impact the local weather. 


Drier weather conditions are expected tonight with rainfall 
activity decreasing and exiting the Easter mountains. 


For temperatures...went with the super blend...generally in the 
middle 80s lowlands ranging to the middle 70s highest elevations. Lows 
are expected to in the middle 60s due to moisture available and 
clearing skies. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Thursday night/... 
in between systems with a very summerlike weather pattern this 
period with a weak upper ridge dominating the area. Even with a 
moist atmosphere in place...the upper ridge and lack of any 
surface boundaries will tend to suppress organized convection. 
Convection will be scattered at best...associated with diurnal 
heating...especially over the mountains where an elevated heat 
source is present. However...most areas will likely remain dry 
this period. Temperatures and humidities will be on the 
increase...with highs reaching near 90 degrees by Wednesday. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Sunday/... 
with a weak steering flow and no fronts in our vicinity...the long 
term will continue the Summer time pattern...despite the approach 
of the Labor Day weekend. 


Will type to have mostly a diurnal shower/storm possibility with 
20/30 probability of precipitation most days. Of course...as we get closer...there will 
probably be a day...where we can enhance or decrease those probability of precipitation. 
A better chance of southeast flow Saturday...so slightly higher probability of precipitation 
over the mountain counties compared to further west..for Saturday 
afternoon. 


Figuring a relatively dry ground...will try to have maximum 
temperatures at or above GFS MOS guidance in The Lowlands. 


&& 


Aviation /10z Monday through Friday/... 
upper level wave moving will continue to move north from 
northeast Kentucky and southwest Virginia into WV today. Satellite images and 
surface observation show broken to overcast 12kft ceilings across most sites. 
Areas of clearing could spread from west to east for VFR 
conditions to prevail today. 


An isolated shower possible along the eastern mountains and 
across the extreme southern WV...rainfall should be very light. 
Flow will remain light and variable or calm at most sites. 


Better chances for showers or storms exist along the eastern 
mountains during the afternoon hours. However...VFR conditions 
will prevail. 


River Valley fog expected overnight tonight under clear skies and 
calm winds. 


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




Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios: River Valley fog may form tonight if breaks 
in clouds develop. Any shower could produce MVFR conditions if 
moves through a taf site. 


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.
