NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
143 am EST Monday Mar 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure brings drier weather today. Another warm/cold front 
combo Tuesday into Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
cold front sagging through the area at this time with the good cold air advection lagging a 
bit. There will a brief window during predawn for a changeover to 
a little sleet or snow on the back edge over The Lowlands but 
should be inconsequential. Did keep some minor accumulations in 
the high terrain. 


Pesky low stratus will gradually scattered out from west to east today...with 
the mountains hanging on to at least some stratocu a good part of 
the day. Any sun we get today will become filtered in the 
afternoon as cirrus overspreads the area. Temperatures today were derived 
primarily on the bias corrected MOS and local in house MOS which 
middle to upper 30s c and S lowlands and 20s and 30s in the mountains 
and portions of southeast Ohio. 


Cloud bases lower tonight with a developing warm front approaching 
from the SW toward morning. Given the cloud cover tonight and 
increasing warm air advection aloft...tried to stay on the warmer side of the 
guidance envelope for temperatures outside of the deep hollows and 
valleys...and show a rise toward morning in The Lowlands as 
downsloping southeast low level flow gets going. Have chance probability of precipitation in NE 
Kentucky/S WV and SW Virginia by 12z. Thermal profiles indicate a brief shot 
of -fzra at the onset across NE Kentucky and the east slopes of southeast WV 
around 12z. This may be a similar event as to what occurred Sunday 
morning but with less duration. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday night/... 
a prolonged wet system approaches the forecast area on Tuesday and 
ultimately decides to take its time moving through the wild and 
wonderful state. The GFS is the most progressive of the bunch 
while the Euro and NAM are similar keeping a fire hose pointed at 
US for at least 24 hours. This forecast more closely follows the 
wetter/slower models. Its Worth mentioning that there is some 
uncertainty in the location in which the heaviest rain falls...so 
the quantitative precipitation forecast is likely blended over a larger portion of the area than 
what will actually happen. 


The moisture tap for this system extends all the way back to the 
Baja California peninsula...so regardless this will be a rather juicy system 
with atmospheric river potential. A 70+ knots southwesterly low level jet develops 
enhancing low level moisture advection. All said and done 2 inches 
of quantitative precipitation forecast sounds reasonable for most places...this coupled with 
snowpack melting in the warmer temperatures that we will 
experience will cause a scenario where flooding is a large 
concern. 


Also of concern is the stronger winds in the mountains...depending 
on how much snow melt occurs and how thawed and saturated the grounds 
are this could be another potential hazard. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
frontal boundary will be east of the area Thursday morning...with 
colder air filtering into the region...and any lingering 
precipitation changing over to snow. Expecting light accumulations 
early Thursday...particularly across the higher terrain counties. 


High pressure will then build in behind the departing front...for 
continued cool...but dry conditions. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Monday through Friday/... 
a cold front is sagging through the area as of 06z and will have 
exited to the southeast by 12z. Widespread vlifr ceilings and IFR visibility ahead 
of the front with some -ra will. Visibilities and to an extent ceilings will 
improve as the front crosses. As such have improving conditions in 
the tafs...but still carry MVFR ceilings behind the front. There may 
be a period of -sn for the mountain sites during the predawn which 
may bring visibility down into IFR. 


Morning stratus will scattered into afternoon stratocu deck...most 
prevalent over the mountains and north WV. Any lingering stratocu will 
dissipate this evening while cirrus overspreads the area. 


A warm front will approach from the SW by 12z Tuesday...with 
lowering bases into MVFR for NE Kentucky and SW Virginia amid some -ra or 
-fzra. 


Light S surface flow will become moderate moderate northwest for today. Flow 
veers around to southeast tonight and increases to around 20 kts at 
h925...giving kbkw a breeze late tonight. 


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


Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios: conditions could improve earlier than 
anticipated.
