NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Charleston WV 
625 am EDT Friday Jul 3 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure moves through area tonight...then to our east on 
Independence day. Drier air tries to ooze southeast Saturday 
afternoon. Middle level disturbance eastern slopes Sunday-Monday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
slow moving showers are slowly drifting back into the County Warning Area from the 
southwest early this morning. This is in response to a surface low 
over the lower Ohio River valley...that will strengthen some today 
as an upper level shortwave trough crosses the Midwest and Great 
Lakes regions. The surface low should move through the County Warning Area today 
into tonight with showers and thunderstorms. Models have trended a 
bit farther west and north with the precipitation into this 
evening. Expect fairly slow storm movement with weak flow. Due to 
this...added a tier of counties to the Flash Flood Watch across southeast 
Ohio and central WV. Downpours are just as likely across the north 
where the Flood Watch is not in place...but this area has had some 
time to dry out since the last significant rain. Will still need 
to watch for the potential of localized issues should a slow 
moving cell or repetitive cells cross a specific area. 


Some guidance showing a dry slot of sorts moving into the WV Coal 
fields today. Not sure the low will get spun up enough to pull in 
enough dry air to be a true dry slot...but would not be surprised to 
see a bit spottier coverage or less intense precipitation amounts 
here. Did try to show a bit lower probability of precipitation as well...although still have 
likely numbers. As the low head to the northeast tonight...drier air 
will slowly try to work in from the northwest. While precipitation should 
gradually come to an end across the west...think low stratus will 
likely stick around across the forecast area through the near term 
period. 


Used a mav/met blend for temperatures...which did not make any huge 
swings from the previous forecast. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday night/... 
a bit leery/skeptical of the 00z NAM pushing the drier air 
quickly southeast on Saturday and even keeping our eastern slopes dry 
Sunday. Will trend toward a slower drying trend in our southern 
counties Independence day afternoon...as low clouds try to break 
up. Yet...was still faster in removing probability of precipitation Saturday in our middle 
Ohio Valley counties...including Athens...Marietta...and 
Parkersburg...then our previous thinking. Any chances of thunder 
Saturday should restricted to mountain counties on east. 


With drier air into southeast Ohio...tried to lower minimum 
temperatures Saturday night in our western counties. In the gradient 
or transition zone...included fog forming ckb-ekn to crw vicinity 
overnight Saturday night. 


A weak steering flow on Sunday into Monday with a weak 500 mb low 
possible over the central Appalachians. A weak east and southeast 
wind flow in the low levels...so will hold onto probability of precipitation Sunday and 
Sunday night in our mountain counties especially Snowshoe...Beckley 
on SW toward Grundy. 


At least the precipitable water should be lowering during the short 
term...compared to the current near term. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
a frontal boundary remains south of the area. With weak middle level 
disturbances passing by...a chance for afternoon showers and 
thunderstorms each day will continue with afternoon heating mainly 
extreme southern sections through Tuesday. 


A cold front approaches from the northwest Wednesday...crossing 
Wednesday night into early Thursday. Coded high chance probability of precipitation with 
this feature for now. Another weak high pressure should develop 
behind the front Thursday into the end of the period. 


Went with wpc guidance for temperatures through the period. 


&& 


Aviation /10z Friday through Tuesday/... 
dense fog did not really form as initially thought...mainly due 
to some puffs of winds and thicker clouds. As a low pressure 
system and weak front moves through...expect MVFR to linger much 
of the day in rain...storms and or low stratus. As rain ends this 
evening...will likely be left with low stratus mixed with fog 
lingering through the night. 


Winds north of the front will be NE to east...with SW winds south of 
the front. The front should slowly drift northward through the 
taf period. 


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


Forecast confidence: low. 


Alternate scenarios: timing and extent of downpours and storm 
today may vary. Spatial extent of fog and stratus in 
question tonight. 


After 12z Saturday...IFR expected in valley Fog/Mountain clouds 
Saturday night into Sunday morning...mainly in WV. IFR possible in 
showers and/or low ceilings along eastern slopes Sunday night. 


&& 


Rlx watches/warnings/advisories... 
WV...Flash Flood Watch through this evening for wvz005>008-013>016- 
024>027-033>037. 
Ohio...Flash Flood Watch through this evening for ohz083-086-087.
