NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
228 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Synopsis... 
front brings showers and thunderstorms into tonight...before 
dissipating. This leaves US with very warm and humid weather 
through the end of the week. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
first line of convection associated with complex system was racing 
eastward into the mountains as 18z passed. Upper level trough axis 
swings through T east forecast area this afternoon and tonight. The surface 
front was washing out as it was charging eastward through Northern Ohio...and 
will dissolve altogether later today and tonight as the upper 
feature struggles to lower heights 20 M. Surface convection will be driven 
by upper level support and divergence...as well as surface outflow 
boundaries. The organized NE-SW oriented feature of early this 
morning was transitioning to something closer to an east-west zone within 
which areas of convection were forming. 


The Kiln sounding this morning showed 1.99 in precipitable water. Though the storms 
were morning in the 30 knots unidirectional flow...this same flow will 
maintain storm organization to a degree. With the more west-east 
orientation of the zone of convection along the southern edge of the 
westerlies...training is a possibility...which would then give rise 
to excessive rainfall if and where it materializes...as reflected in 
the latest central guidance. 3-hour ffg values of just under 2 in 
were common across the forecast area...especially in WV. 


Raised probability of precipitation across the S for tonight with convection dragging 
parallel to the upper level flow...these probability of precipitation may need raised 
further and stretched farther north. 


Wednesday starts with low cloud and fog that take much of the morning to 
burn off...otherwise a quiet day with weak surface high pressure and 
upper level ridging in place. 


Bias corrected guidance looked good for lows tonight...a little 
higher than previous. Used a blend of straight guidance on highs 
Wednesday for little change. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday/... 
strong upper level ridge over the deep south proves to be persistent 
and still will not be able to shake the 590dkm line through the end 
of the week. Despite the surface high pressure building in 
Wednesday...think we will have enough low level moisture to pop 
isolated showers/storms during the daytime heating hours. Stretched 
the slight chance probability of precipitation through the entire County Warning Area based on this 
reasoning. 


Left Thursday largely dry as in the previous forecast...with the 
mountains and tug valley in the slight chance area as before. NAM 
brings a weak trough axis aloft over the northwestern zones in 
southeast Ohio...but column will likely be too dry at this point for 
anything of significance to develop. 


Bring the probability of precipitation back in as the next system approaches...and figure to 
get some better destabilization during the day with pressure falls. 


Keep the high temperatures through the period under the 90 degree 
mark given the time of year and moist ground. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
heating back up...as the southern 500 mb ridge builds back north for 
Friday. Some afternoon convection could occur Friday...but probability of precipitation 
mostly 20 and 30 percent. 


Per wpc medium coordination...continue to trend slower than the GFS 
on the next front. 12z GFS quickly dries out our northern counties 
Saturday evening into Sunday. Prefer the slower ecwmf solution at 
this time...increased probability of precipitation into likely category on Saturday into 
Saturday evening. Holding some chance probability of precipitation even into Sunday morning 
for northern counties...and into Sunday night for southern 
counties. Dry Monday...except again some slight chance probability of precipitation along 
the eastern slopes. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
first round of showers and thunderstorms were moving into the 
mountains as 18z passed...while other thunderstorms were quickly 
moving up the Ohio Valley. IFR and strong wind gusts are likely 
under any thunderstorm...the threat of which continues into this 
evening before diminishing. Low clouds and fog are likely to form 
later tonight in the wake of the rain...and then take a while to 
burn off Wednesday in the light low level flow...especially the clouds. 


Surface flow will be SW and a bit gusty the balance of this afternoon. 
Gusts in thunderstorms could reach 40 kts from the west to northwest. Surface 
flow overnight and Wednesday will be light and variable. Moderate SW flow 
aloft this afternoon will become moderate west this evening...and then 
light west to northwest overnight and Wednesday. 


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


Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios: timing of showers and thunderstorms could vary 
by a couple of hours. Onset of fog and low clouds overnight tonight 
and dissipation Wednesday could vary.
