NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
1119 am EDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure drops southeast/intensifying off North Carolina coast 
Saturday. Cold pool aloft moves through southern counties overnight 
into Saturday morning. Snow accumulation mainly in mountain counties. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
updated probability of precipitation eastern progression a tad quicker as per radar. Did 
adjust quantitative precipitation forecast and snow amounts a tad across the eastern ridges of our 
SW Virginia counties as per new model trends. Otherwise no other major 
changes expected. 


Previous discussion... 
under the cover of darkness last night...clearing occurred over 
southern and central West Virginia. This allowed temperatures in 
some of the western valleys to drop to around freezing. 


In case you missed the pns from Thursday evening...with October 
ending rlx has terminated its frost/freeze program for the autumn. 
So there will be no frost/freeze headlines from US this November 
weekend. 


In our fast pace pattern...clouds are quickly increasing again from 
the west over the Ohio River counties this predawn. No major 
changes on timing the increasing probability of precipitation from west to east 
today...maybe a bit slower reaching the WV mountain counties. Will 
try to hold down maximum temperature in the west with the clouds and 
showers/rain. 


500 mb low drops south from WI at 07z to near sdf at 00z then 
reaching southeast of the Smoky Mountains by 12z Saturday. Could see a few 
separate areas of rain today...before coverage increases with 
dynamics ahead of...and north of the 500 mb low...late today and 
overnight. Could not completely rule out an embedded thunder in our 
southern counties this evening as 500 mb temperatures drop. 


Of course...the coldest air at 850 mb is along and to the west of 
the 500 mb track...which leaves a 2 to 3c gradient in 850 mb temperature 
just SW of heights-crw overnight. In there was any trend in the 
American models overnight...maybe a slight tendency toward warmer 
aloft from hts-crw-bkw. Did increase low temperature a degree or so 
from crw to bkw. 


Have the first flakes in our County Warning Area over the high terrain of Dickenson 
County around 00z Saturday- this Friday evening. Will also increase 
the winds over southwest Virginia tonight in the cold air 
advection. Did increase snow amounts over the high terrain in 
Buchanan and Dickenson counties to around 4 inches by dawn. Also 
added an inch or less over hilltops in interior NE Kentucky. 


No changes planned in the counties under our winter headlines. 
Depending on where the middle/upper support set up the burst of snow 
06z to 12z Saturday...could see more snow over the high terrain in 
the headline counties...before the cold pool drains away. 


Our snow amounts not that much less in Raleigh County...but of 
course...there is a higher snow criteria set there for headlines. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday night/... 
upper level low crosses Carolinas on Saturday as it gradually gets 
overpowered and absorbed into a low developing over eastern Canada. 
As this happens precipitation over the County Warning Area will become more upslope type 
and northwest flow move in. The Lowlands will gradually warm Saturday 
changing snow back to rain....however it will still be a rather raw 
day with gusty winds and high temperatures only getting into the low 40s 
across The Lowlands...with middle to upper 30s higher up. Depending 
just how long moisture hangs on...the WV lowlands may transition 
back to snow Saturday night as precipitation quickly winds down from west 
to east. Some light snow may linger in the northern mountainous 
counties into Sunday afternoon...with generally a couple inches of 
snow at middle and high elevations Saturday and Sunday. High pressure 
noses in from the southwest for Sunday into Sunday night. 


Blended in bias-corrected mosguide for highs...and Saturday night. 
Main change was a touch cooler Saturday night. Used wpc guidance for 
Sunday night resulting in minimal changes. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
strong dry Canadian high pressure will be the dominant feature 
through Monday night. The high pressure center will settle over the 
area Sunday night...then shift off the Atlantic coast Monday. This 
will bring a dramatic turnaround in temperatures this period. Well 
below normal temperatures Sunday night with widespread sub freezing 
temperatures under the center of high pressure...will warm up to 
near normal values by Tuesday as the high shifts off the Atlantic 
coast. 


Models show another upper trough digging into the Mississippi Valley 
and driving a cold front eastward by the middle part of next week. 
Models have slowed this system down a bit as a wave of low pressure 
ripples up along the front through the western Ohio Valley Monday 
night and Tuesday. This system will affect our area late Tuesday and 
especially on Wednesday. By this time... temperatures will be well 
above freezing for a rain event. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Friday through Tuesday/... 
morning update... 
did make a few minor adjustments to tafs for visibility and ceilings early 
on. Some MVFR conditions possible this afternoon with rain showers 
moving through. Rest of forecast on track until next issuance. 


Previous discussion... 
some local MVFR in valley fog did form over southern WV for the 
predawn. Some 5 to 6 miles in haze may linger past 12z as clouds 
increase. 


Ceilings at 4 to 7 thousand feet increasing west to east 12z to 15z today. 
Spotty light rain or light rain showers developing over Ohio Valley 
counties 12z to 15z...spreading east during the afternoon. 


Conditions deteriorating over tri state around heights including NE Kentucky 
and southeast Ohio 18z to 21z as middle level support increases...ahead of 
strong 500 mb low. With this support dropping southeast through southern 
WV...tried to be slow lowering conditions further north...including 
vicinity ckb and north central WV. 


Ceilings lowering into 1 to 3 thousand feet and visibility at or below 3 miles in 
rain...becoming mixed with snow mainly S of a heights-crw line by 03z 
and mostly snow by 03z over Dickenson and Buchanan counties in SW Virginia 
under the cool pool aloft. Hard to determine if bkw will go to all 
snow or stay mix...with coldest 850 mb temperatures passing to its 
south. 


Surface and low level winds increasing over eastern Kentucky on southeast 
into the border counties of southern West Virginia and southwest 
Virginia 00z to 06z. In contrast...winds near surface remain 
fairly light over north central WV including ckb through 06z 
Saturday...before becoming north near 10 knots by 12z Saturday. 


Hard to figure how low ceilings drop from 06z to 12z 
Saturday...especially away from the dynamics...like pkb to ckb 
corridor. 


Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 12z Saturday... 


Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios: timing the deteriorating conditions 18z today 
through 00z Saturday may vary. Bkw may stay mixture rather than all 
snow before 12z Saturday. 


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.
