NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
727 PM EDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure exits later tonight. A cold front approaches Monday 
and then crosses Monday night. Waves of low pressure will pull the 
front back north middle to late week. 


&& 


Near term /through Monday/... 
in evening update...increased winds in the Ohio Valley and 
northern West Virginia after 15z Monday ahead of the front. 
By 16z Monday the rap model has 20 knot flow at 925 mb. 


Still like the possibility of a shower in southeast Ohio into the 
middle Ohio Valley during the morning...so no changes there. 


For the prefrontal convection...was a bit faster increasing probability of precipitation 
east in the 22z Monday to 02z Tuesday time frame from the middle Ohio 
Valley into north central WV. Cells will be moving at around 35 
knots. How qucikly convection sinks south into southern West 
Virginia..say heights-crw-bkw on south...remains difficult to figure. 


&& 


Short term /Monday night through Wednesday/... 
very few changes to the short term forecast today...with models 
holding on the cold front passage into the far southern zones of 
West Virginia...and then lifting back north into West Virginia as a 
surface low develops along the front to the west. With the 
frontogenetic forcing on the increase...felt comfortable with high 
chance and low end likely probability of precipitation by the end of the short term. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
extended continues to play on the surface low developing off to the 
west and moving into the central Appalachians warranting high end 
chance to likely probability of precipitation on the front end of the long term. This low 
departs to the east by 18z Friday and will take the bulk of the rain 
chances with it. Canadian high pressure builds in behind the low and 
cold front drying it out for the weekend with temperatures slightly 
below normal area wide. 


&& 


Aviation /23z Sunday through Friday/... 
with boundary layer flow increasing only possible thick fog 
figured would be in extreme southern West Virginia such as 
Pineville Airport. Have some MVFR possible around Elkins during 
the 08z to 11z time frame. 


Otherwise have 5 to 10 thousand feet clouds increasing in the Ohio 
Valley 08z to 12z with possible shower 11z to 15z. 


Basing forecast on front not reaching toward middle Ohio Valley and 
pkb vicinity until 00z Tuesday. Best chance for gusty thunderstorms 
seem to be in the kuni to kpkb to kckb corridor after 22z. 


Prefrontal convection will be moving quickly east around 35 to 40 
knots...but timing how quickly convection sinks into heights-crw on 
south is difficult. Tried to delay main chances just after this 
taf periods during Tuesday evening for hts-crw-bkw. 


Have ceilings near 3 thousand feet and visibility briefly at or below 3 miles in late 
day and evening convection. 


Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 00z Tuesday... 


Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios: timing of convection late Tuesday afternoon 
and Tuesday evening could 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.
