NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
1023 PM EDT Friday may 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
scattered convection through tonight. Moisture and convection 
increases Saturday night into Sunday night. Cold front in our 
vicinity Sunday night. 


&& 


Near term /through Saturday/... 
1030pm update... 
made a few adjustments to the overnight lows by bumping them up 
with the higher dewpoints from recent rainfall. Counting on cloud 
cover reforming tonight to keep valley fog patchy in nature. 


Previous discussion... afternoon and evening convection should 
decrease in intensity and coverage with the lost of heating around 
sunset. Decreased probability of precipitation from chance to slight chance across 
southeast Ohio and portions of western WV...keeping the eastern half 
dry overnight. Diurnal cumulus should dissipate as well...to provide 
pockets of clear skies. With dewpoints in the middle 60s...expect 
areas of fog developing over deeper river valleys like the 
tygart...and over areas that received rainfall during the 
afternoon and evening hours. 


For Saturday...models not picking up on any significant dynamic 
forcing to have organized convection. Therefore...expect same 
environment compared from this afternoon to prevail Saturday 
afternoon with differential heating boundaries produced by 
diurnal cumulus and pockets of sunshine. Models showing precipitable 
water values around 1.5 inches and high surface based cape and low 
deep layered shear. So...do not expect widespread severe 
storms...perhaps marginal under freezing levels around 13500 feet. 


Previous temperatures looks reasonable. Only made minor changes 
due to clouds in the afternoon. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday night/... 
looks like the globals are trending toward what the NAM has been 
indicating...a wave of low pressure to ride along the front which 
will hold up the front into east Ohio until it passes. As such...the 
first half of Sat night may be relatively quiet with some isolated 
activity at best. The wave is poised to trek across east Ohio by midday 
on sun...dragging the cold front through as it pushes into PA. Sun 
still looks rather unsettled...particularly from midday Onward. 
Activity winds down Sunday night as the wave departs. There may be 
a secondary front crossing overnight with some accompanying -shra. 
It is behind this boundary where quite a bit of low level moisture will 
linger through Monday...essentially along the 850 mb front. For 
temperatures...think areas southeast of the Ohio River will have a chance to spike 
up in temperatures as the guidance is indicating. As such...have bumped 
up probability of precipitation into the low to middle 80s...creating a bit of a temperature 
gradient with southeast Ohio in the low 70s. Monday should see highs back 
off a bit with expected cloud cover. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
generally followed HPC and European model (ecmwf) synoptic solution. The ridge 
gradually builds back over the area by midweek...meaning an uptick 
in temperatures and a downtick in precipitation chances. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
convection on the decline this evening...but like previous 
nights...will carry isolated chances through the night. Nothing in 
the prevailing conditions through 16z Saturday. 


Through the night...expecting some middle level cloud cover 
formation...important for the role it will play in keeping valley 
fog at Bay. There is lower confidence to this for the terminals 
that have or later on will see rain. Right now...ekn is the only 
site with IFR visible in the forecast. 


Convection returns Saturday afternoon and evening. 


Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 18z Saturday... 


Forecast confidence: medium. 


Alternate scenarios: visible may drop to IFR in valley fog tonight 
briefly if cloud decks do not materialize. 


After 18z Saturday...IFR in more widespread convection Saturday 
or Saturday night and again on Sunday. IFR lingering Monday in low 
clouds and showers near front.
