Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
1019 PM EDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Synopsis... 
increasing southeast wind late tonight/Sunday morning. Showers with 
middle level disturbances Sunday. A cold front crossing Monday heralds 
cooler weather. Another front crosses Wednesday night or Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /through Sunday/... 
in the late evening update...was a bit slower moving the showers 
north on Sunday...into north central West Virginia. Figuring the 
increasing southeast flow will delayed the onset in the western 
downslope areas. 


After the initial support and showers lifts north...the strong dew 
point boundary will likely remain from the tug Fork valley on northwest 
into extreme south central Ohio...with the more unstable air 
upstream - to the west. Convection could form to our west and reach 
eastern Kentucky by evening. With such a dynamic system...will 
mention the possibility of an isolated severe storm reaching as far 
east as our far western counties around The Heights tri state...but also 
along the Kentucky border to include our 2 in southwest Virginia. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday night through Tuesday/... 
models continue their good agreement on a lead southern stream upper 
trough...and associated warm front...lifting rapidly northeast 
across the area early Sunday night. The widespread band of showers 
and perhaps a rumble of thunder ahead of the front will mostly end 
by midnight. This will place US in the warm sector Sunday night into 
Monday with just scattered showers possible...before a cold front 
with a northern stream short wave moves east across the area during 
Monday. Instability and moisture will increase ahead of the cold 
front...leading to a band of showers and thunderstorms with the 
front. Most of the activity will be toward the earlier part of the 
day Monday...so that severe potential will be mostly east of the 
area and probability of precipitation actually decreasing from west to east later in the 
day. In addition...the speed of the two systems lowers the potential 
for flooding. Temperatures will be at or above normal until the 
front comes across...with a cooling trend Tuesday as dry high 
pressure builds in. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
overall...we look to be cooler than normal...especially at night 
through the long term. Best chance for a frost/freeze looks to be 
Friday morning after a weak cold front passes through Wednesday 
night or Thursday. Stuck pretty close to wpc for probability of precipitation/Sky/High 
temperatures. Undercut wpc temperatures a bit on overnight lows. Both GFS and 
European model (ecmwf) show 850mb temperatures below zero late this week into this weekend. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Sunday through Thursday/... 
confidence lowered from high to medium. One reason was trying to 
determine surface wind speeds. Also lower confidence in 
determining how low ceilings will drop in the southeast flow during 
the rain showers over the southern mountains around Beckley. 


Still confidence that ceilings will only drop into the 3 to 5 thousand 
feet range in the western downslope corridor around crw to ckb and 
even ekn...during the showers in the daylight hours on Sunday. 


Thinking the increasing low level flow 06z to 12z Sunday will reach 
the ground...so at this distance in time...did not include any low 
level wind shear. There may be a few hour window for low level wind shear in places 
like crw and heights around dawn Sunday if winds remain just off the 
surface. 


Only possibility of thunder is foreseen in the tri state around 
Huntington after 21z Sunday...within the sharp SW to NE low level 
dew point gradient. This includes extreme southern Ohio...northeast 
Kentucky...and southwest West Virginia. 


By 15z Sunday...have IFR ceilings developing along the eastern 
slopes including the bkw vicinity. With that flow persisting...have 
IFR continuing into Sunday evening along these eastern slopes...even 
though precipitation chances trend down toward 00z Monday. 


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


Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios: if increasing low level flow does not reach 
surface...they may be a few hour wind for low level wind shear heights-crw vicinity around 
10 to 13z Sunday. Also...timing of arrival of IFR ceilings at 
Beckley 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.
