NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
832 PM EDT Thursday Mar 26 2015 


Synopsis... 
cold front pushes east of the area this evening...followed by much 
colder air tonight into the weekend. Strong upper level disturbance 
passes Friday night. Cold high pressure crosses Saturday night. 


&& 


Near term /until 8 am Friday morning/... 
updated forecast to increase probability of precipitation in the east where rain is 
occurring. New MOS and lav guidance indicating that readings by 
morning will be a bit warmer...so upped the overnight lows a 
bit...mainly in the eastern half of the area. 


&& 


Short term /8 am Friday morning through Sunday/... 
models continue to be in good agreement through the short term and 
no real changes were made to the current forecast. Still expect 
the upper level trough to cross the forecast area close to 12z Saturday. The 
cold air will hang across the area on Saturday with lingering snow 
showers in the mountains. Outside of the mountains...clouds will clear from 
west to east on Saturday but temperatures will be cold. Low 
temperatures Sunday morning will be approaching record lows. High 
pressure begins to build from the west on Sunday. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
roller coaster ride in the temperature department to continue through the 
extended period. A cold front will slide through Sunday night into 
early Monday with a chance for showers. A wave may develop in the Tennessee 
Valley on Monday which would keep the rain threat going across SW 
Virginia and southeast WV. Temperatures will come back down behind the front as northwest 
flow aloft becomes established behind a clipper system early 
Tuesday...with a small chance for a shower and snow shower for the 
north mountains. Upper heights will quickly rebound midweek with 
decent warm air advection cranking once again...ahead of the next front. As a 
result...temperatures should spike into the 70s once again long about 
Wednesday. This front looks to cross Wednesday night or early Thursday. 


&& 


Aviation /01z Friday through Tuesday/... 
rain and low clouds will persist this evening behind a cold front. 
Some clearing can then be expected late tonight in western 
WV...Ohio...and Kentucky. A stratus deck will remain along the 
western slopes of the mountains however. Clouds will generally lift 
on Friday. However...some snow showers can be expected in the 
northern and central WV mountains during the day...with VFR cumulus 
filling back in over Ohio...KY...and western WV. 


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


Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios: visibilities will vary in rain this evening. 
Timing of ceilings lifting/clearing 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.
