NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
143 PM EDT Thursday Sep 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure...centered to our north...moving off northeast coast 
Friday. Cold front around late Sunday into Sunday night.. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
update... 
no changes this morning to the forecast. Awaiting the dissolution 
of the fog once again in the central West Virginia lowland 
valleys. 


Previous discussion... 
low stratus and areas of dense fog will gradually lift around 14z 
at most places. High pressure centered to our north will provide 
mostly sunny skies by middle to late morning into the afternoon 
hours. Temperatures will be couple of degrees warmer than 
yesterdays reaching near normal temperatures for this time of the 
year. Dry conditions will prevail through the period. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Sunday/... 
quiet pattern will continue in the short term. Broad upper troughing 
over the northeast Continental U.S. Friday will gradually break down with zonal 
flow Saturday as another upper trough moves eastward across the 
upper Midwest into the Great Lakes. No major changes from previous forecast 
with latest data. Surface high pressure centered to the north at the 
outset of the period continues to shift eastward off the New England 
coast by 00z Sat with resultant bl winds setting up out of the 
southeast. Low level moisture will bank up against the eastern mountains 
and have continued a slight chance of showers in that general area 
as such...again which previous forecast had a good handle on. Latest nam12 
moisture profiles hint at some potential for convective showers 
further west over the central WV lowlands but at this 
point...moisture availability at around the 850mb-800mb level may be 
somewhat overdone as well as the Colorado-located instability. Thus for 
now...left the forecast dry for all of The Lowlands. Maximum temperatures 
generally upper 70s lowlands still look good. 


Dry weather under mostly sunny/clear to partly cloudy skies will 
continue Friday night and Saturday with less low level moisture 
available. Only change of any real significance was to ramp up 
temperatures on Saturday by a good 3-5 degrees for much of The Lowlands. 
Temperatures at 925mb prognosticated around 20c-22c should result in low 80s for 
many locations...a trend which is also bearing out in latest MOS 
guidance. Temperatures will be slightly warmer Sat night versus Friday night 
with south/southwest winds and increasing clouds with an approaching 
cold front moving into the lower Great Lakes region by 12z sun. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
used wpc thinking with some minor tweaks. Cold front will push 
southeast of the mountains Sunday night with high pressure taking 
control by Monday afternoon. The high should be in control through 
the remainder of the period...resulting in dry and seasonably cool 
temperatures. 


Wpc temperatures looked good and were generally used. 


&& 


Aviation /17z Thursday through Monday/... 
expect overall clearing through the evening as diurnal heating 
wanes. 


After 00z tonight...the mountains will be under the influence middle 
level clouds and southeast flow at the surface. This should bring 
clouds into the ekn area and halt the formation of the Tygart 
Valley fog for that terminal. Further south at bkw...southeast 
flow brings IFR ceilings late tonight...lingering into Friday with 
drizzle possible. NAM bufr soundings were the most useful tool for 
the bkw taf...showing the timing of boundary layer saturation and 
thickness of the saturated layer resulting in drizzle potential 
Friday. 


Elsewhere in The Lowlands...expecting a largely typical late 
Summer nocturnal fog pattern. Relied on the lamp guidance for 
timing of IFR/LIFR visibilities. 


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


Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios: NAM may be too aggressive with the eastward 
extent of the upsloping IFR ceilings at bkw. Ekn fog may not begin 
or erode at forecast time. 


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.
