NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Raleigh NC 
907 PM EDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Synopsis...a potent upper level low will meander along the middle 
Atlantic coast tonight...then gradually track further offshore on 
Thursday. A series of upper level disturbances will cross the region 
in northwest flow aloft on Friday and Saturday. 


&& 


Near term /tonight through Thursday night/... 
as of 907 PM Wednesday... 


Vertically stacked low pressure system off the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia coast will 
intensify as it tracks slowly northeastward up the middle-Atlantic 
coast through Thursday/Thursday night. As the the low moves away from the 
area...high pressure aloft and at the surface will build into the 
area from the west. Broken/overcast sky conditions across NE 
Piedmont/northern coastal plain will clear out by daybreak...with 
breezy northwesterly winds gradually subsiding Thursday afternoon/evening. 


Min temperatures the next couple of nights generally in the lower 
40s...except some upper 30s in the typical outlying areas. Highs 
Thursday 65-70. 


&& 


Short term /Friday and Friday night/... 
as of 247 PM Wednesday... 


High pressure is expected to be centered over the Gulf Coast states 
and extend across our region Friday. Winds will become light and 
variable Friday as the influence of the departing upper low to our 
NE wanes for central NC. Mostly sunny skies are expected with 
temperatures generally a few degrees above normal. Highs 70-75. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 247 PM Wednesday... 


A backdoor front is forecast to slip through our region from the 
north on Sunday. It should pass relatively unnoticed other than a 
wind shift to the north... but speeds should remain light (generally 
10 miles per hour or less). Cold air advection will be felt mostly after dark Sunday but (dry 
air advection will start early in the day as dew points will drop 
off more significantly. Highs generally in the 70-73 range Sunday 
with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures Monday should be in the middle to 
upper 60s... then moderate quickly back into 70-75 range Tuesday and 
Wednesday. Mostly clear/sunny skies are expected with the high 
pressure being dominate. The next cold front is not expected until 
sometime Wednesday or Wednesday night - and current indications 
suggest that it should be a dry frontal passage as well. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Thursday through Monday/... 
as of 745 PM Wednesday... 


VFR conditions will prevail throughout the current taf period as dry 
northwesterly flow aloft continues...while at the surface...high 
pressure builds into the region. After a breezy day today...the 
northwesterly winds have decreased this evening...but are expected 
to pick up once again on Thursday (although not as strong as today). 
Lingering clouds in the northeast (including krwi)...will gradually 
move out of the area as a strong upper low (currently near the middle 
Atlantic coast) begins to move away. Otherwise...mostly clear skies 
will prevail. 


Outlook...a prolonged period of VFR conditions will persist into the 
weekend/early next week as the weather remains dominated by dry 
northwesterly flow aloft and surface high pressure. 


&& 


Rah watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
