NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
1031 PM EDT Thursday Jul 31 2014 


Synopsis... 
upper level disturbances cross the central Appalachians tonight and 
Friday. A new upper level trough settles over the middle Ohio 
Valley this weekend...and then pulls out early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
1030 PM update... 
an additional shower or two has popped up over southeast Ohio in 
the past hour and have thus coded up slight chance probability of precipitation with this 
for a few hours. Still...expect this to wind down by the 05z time 
frame if not sooner. Also increased sky cover a bit with high/middle 
level clouds streaming in quickly from the southwest. 


730 PM update... 
the few showers across the northwest zones this afternoon and 
earlier this evening have dissipated as expected. Overall forecast 
is on track...but adjusted probability of precipitation over the far southern zones to 
reflect current radar trends/thinking...as some showers and a few 
lightning strikes brush the Virginia counties northeastward up towards 
the Raleigh County area. 


Previous discussion... 
noted a few showers starting to pop up over the middle Ohio 
Valley...where the cumulus field is most Stout. Have accounted for 
isolated convection this afternoon...dying off early relative to 
sunset. 


Otherwise main feature this period is a pair of southern stream short wave features 
that move NE across an ever increasing southeast portion of the forecast area 
overnight into Friday. WV imagery shows dry slot between northern and southern 
streams over the area this morning already shifting northward...allowing 
deeper moisture to encroach upon SW Virginia and southern WV. This shift 
corresponds with a rising height field as the main upper low just S 
of Hudson Bay fills...and the l/west trough begins to loosen its grip 
over the eastern Continental U.S.. 


Have showers and thunderstorms becoming increasingly likely over the 
southeastern fringes of the CST area by dawn Friday...and over the mountains by 
midday Friday...with an increasing chance over The Lowlands Friday 
afternoon. The westward expansion of coverage Friday afternoon will be 
mainly driven by diurnal heating. However...at the same 
time...under the cloud shield...the stability actually increases 
over the mountains...so the chance for thunder there actually 
wanes. The last of the S/W/S starts to pull away to the east late Friday 
afternoon. 


Lows tonight looked like a reasonably compromise of the latest bias 
corrected guidance while an all blend seemed to provide a consistent 
solution for highs Friday. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday night/... 
unsettled weather returns to the area over the weekend. Upper trough 
with several disturbances moving through the area to continue 
through the weekend. Models continue to keep bulk of 
precipitation...dynamics to east of mountains...and continued to 
play the trend of higher probability of precipitation across mountains...with chance across 
lowlands. With an overall light flow pattern expected...showers and 
storms that develop over the weekend will be rather slow moving. The 
higher precipitable water will exist to the east of the mountains...so no major 
water issues are expected...however...due to the expected slow 
nature of storms...repetitive slower movers over any given area 
could cause swollen creeks and streams and perhaps urban water 
issues. 


Additional shortwave energy will dig south and east across the area 
Saturday night into Sunday...with a frontal boundary pushing east 
across the area Sunday night into Monday. Drier weather behind the 
front for the start of next week. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
high pressure gradually building in from the west for the start of 
next week...for a brief break in much of the precipitation. 
However...heat and humidity will be on the increase throughout next 
week...as southerly flow increases and heights build out ahead of an 
approaching storm system...which will spread showers and 
thunderstorms back into the area towards the end of the extended 
period. Temperatures look like they will finally rise to normal or even 
above normal for this time of year. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Friday through Tuesday/... 
VFR conditions are expected to prevail through the evening hours. 
A heavier shower to the southwest of bkw may impact that terminal 
in the next hour with perhaps MVFR visible. 


Ceilings will lower on southeast flow tonight in the southeast mountains...with 
MVFR stratocu getting as far northwest as bkw by dawn Friday and then likely 
persisting through the balance of the taf period. Showers and 
thunderstorms are likely in the mountains from near dawn Friday 
through around the 18z time frame...before beginning to taper from 
southwest to northeast after 18z. There is a chance for showers 
and thunderstorms further west by 18z Friday. Clouds associated with 
the upper level disturbance triggering the convection...should 
prevent a repeat of the dense valley fog tonight...with visibilities no 
worse than MVFR expected. 


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


Forecast confidence: medium to high. 


Alternate scenarios: fog or reduced visibilities late overnight / early 
Friday morning may vary from the MVFR currently forecast. Uncertainty 
of effects of showers and thunderstorms increases Friday 
morning...especially in the mountains. 


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.
