NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
1123 am EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure exits first thing this morning. A mainly dry cold 
front crosses tonight. High pressure crosses Sunday. Warmer early 
next week. Cold fronts cross early Wednesday and again Friday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
1130 am update... 
forecast on track. 


Previous discussion... 
high pressure exits first thing this morning...allowing a cold front 
to approach from the Midwest. The front is driven by an upper level 
short wave trough that digs east-southeastward through the eastern Great Lakes and 
northeast today...with an upper level low settling into the St. 
Lawrence River valley by 12z sun. This leaves the forecast area on the 
anticyclonic shear side of the jet. 


With little inflow ahead of the front and not much low level 
convergence...moisture is quite limited. Clouds increase 
today...with the best chance for rain reaching the ground over the 
higher terrain tonight...and only 20 percent even there. 


The flow becomes aligned out of the west-northwest tonight as the front 
crosses...with up to 50 kts at 850 mb. Therefore expect winds to 
become a bit gusty late today and especially tonight in the 
mountains...with peak gusts possibly over 40 kts over the very 
highest ridgetops. 


Blended in the met and bias corrected mav for highs today...which 
are close to a bias corrected MOS blend and previous. Kept lows 
tonight which are also close to bias corrected guidance. Did slow 
the fall of temperatures tonight until the front GOES by. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Tuesday/... 
surface high pressure over Tennessee will gradually shift eastward 
through the later part of weekend as a weak warm front pushes north 
across the forecast area. Atmospheric column will generally remain 
dry...with warm air advection taking place. This will result in 
little chances for precipitation with an upswing in daytime 
highs...especially by Monday after warmer airmass nudges into the 
Ohio Valley. 


Mainly stuck with inherited temperature values which were leaning 
toward the high side of guidance values. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Friday/... 
extended periods begin rather warm and end rather chilly. Tuesday 
the area will basking in warm SW flow amid building upper heights. 
Have tentatively coded up middle 70s but this may be a bit underdone. 
The warmth does not last though...as a strong but moisture 
restricted cold front crosses midweek. Appears front will slow 
down as the upper trough begins to retreat. So...have Wednesday the 
day for frontal passage...with a somewhat narrow frontal zone of rain showers moving 
through. Area clears out for a nice but coolish day on Thursday. 


Attention then turns to Friday and the weekend. Models are still 
showing volatility from run to run with magnitude of upper trough 
moving into the region...which interestingly enough has some 
origins from the remnants of Ana in the east Pacific currently. Did 
not sway much from wpc to maintain some continuity for next 
weekend. Will be watching to see if the more amplified solutions 
emerge which would give some unseasonable cold air to the region. 


&& 


Aviation /16z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
high pressure exits first thing morning. The fog Burns off by 
14z...yielding a VFR day today. A cold front approaching from the west 
may bring sprinkles...even a light rain shower...to the mountains 
tonight. An associated stratocu deck will remain VFR during the day 
today...before lowering to MVFR tonight. Near and west of the Ohio 
River...the clouds will break up as the bases lower...so MVFR ceilings 
may never be realized. 


Light S to SW surface flow this morning will become light west to SW 
today...and then become a bit gusty in the mountains tonight as the 
front approaches and then crosses. Surface flow will be west to northwest behind 
the front. So...even where and when it clears...there ought to be 
enough wind and dry advection to preclude fog tonight...especially 
given little or no rain. Light to moderate west flow aloft today will 
become moderate to strong northwest behind the front tonight. 


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


Forecast confidence: medium to high. 


Alternate scenarios: timing of fog burning off this morning may vary 
by an hour or so. Wind speeds and gusts could vary as the front 
approaches and then crosses tonight. Timing and extent of MVFR 
stratocu tonight may vary. 


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.
