Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
1218 PM EST Thu Jan 18 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure over the Lower Mississippi Valley will move east
across the Gulf Coast states today through Friday. Low pressure will
develop in the Central Plains on Sunday then track into the Great
Lakes by Tuesday. This system will push a cold front through the
area on Monday and Tuesday.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
As of 1210 PM EST Thursday...


Winter wx advisory for slick roads expired at noon for the NC
piedmont but another one will likely be issued early this
afternoon for refreezing this evening and overnight.

No other changes to the forecast otherwise.

Previous discussion from mid morning...

Wind chill advisory expired at 10am for the mountains and
adjacent foothills. Will still see gusty winds and wind chills
near zero to a few degrees below zero for another hour before it
"warms" up. Wind has been an issue in isolated spots along the
Blue Ridge this morning, with Virginia DOT sensors showing gusts
over 50 mph along Fancy Gap on I-77, which resulted in tractor-
trailer accidents. Special Weather Statement issued to cover
this but overall should see a diminishing trend in the winds
through the afternoon under plenty of sunshine.

Warm air advection at 8h will work against the snow cover and
cold low levels this afternoon, and will see which one wins out,
but historically warm advection does so kept highs close to the
previous forecast with upper 20s to mid 30s west, to mid 30s to
near 40 east.

A public information statement of final snow totals will be
sent around 11am.

Previous discussion from early morning...

Closed upper low was over eastern North Carolina this morning. This
low will move offshore and begin to fill today. At the surface high
pressure was over the Lower Mississippi Valley with a lee trof along
the central and southern Appalachians. The trof was tightening the
pressure gradient leading to increased wind speeds this morning. The
850MB jet will pick up to around 50 knots this afternoon which will
prolong the gusty winds at higher elevations, especially in
southeast West Virginia and along the Blue Ridge north of Roanoke.

Satellite pictures showed the clouds had cleared out of the foothills
and piedmont of Virginia and North Carolina. Snow will hold
temperatures below guidance today and tonight despite the warm air
advection at 850MB. Dry air mass does favor a large diurnal
temperature spread but expect solar insolation that goes toward snow
melt to counteract that.

Low clouds along the western slopes of the Appalachians this morning
with a few flurries. Boone, NC was reporting a reduced visibility
and light snow with a clear sky. Based on the wind of 15G25MPH the
observation instruments are likely sensing some blowing snow. Models
have a bulk of this cloud cover dissipating around 10AM.

&&

.SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/...
As of 330 AM EST Thursday...

The upper pattern will be transitioning to more of an eastern
ridge/western trof, which will bring breezy and much warmer conditions
to the region this weekend. By late Saturday developing low pressure
over the Rockies will start to push a warm front in our direction.
However the better moisture and isentropic lift will only brush the
Appalachains and central mid Atlantic region, bringing just a slight
chance for a shower far west Saturday evening through Sunday morning.

Temperatures will warm to well above normal levels with readings by
Sunday rising well into the 50s, though lingering snow cover mainly east
of the Blue Ridge will temper the warm up.

&&

.LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
As of 235 PM EST Wednesday...

We stay warmer than normal ahead of a deep trough/closed low
moving across the central U.S. Monday which then sends a front
across us Tuesday with a threat of showers. Colder air behind it
may bring a few snow showers to the mountains of WV, but temps
behind this system are not as cold as the pattern we are in now.

&&

.AVIATION /17Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
As of 1215 PM EST Thursday...

Do not see any clouds on the horizon for aviation and
visibilities should be VFR. Question tonight will be if we get
fog formation over the snowpack with weak warm advection
occuring above it. For now winds should stay up slightly to
prevent this but something to be alert for.

West-northwest winds will be in the 10-15kt range in the
mountains this afternoon, with gusts up to 30 kts, with lighter
winds in the east. Winds will subside more after dusk, but some
stronger winds above the developing surface inversion will
result in low level wind shear along the LWB-ROA/BCB corridor
for a few hours this evening.



Extended Discussion...

High pressure will cover the region Friday through Sunday. VFR
conditions are expected as well as warming temperatures.
Moisture will return to west Sunday night into Monday with sub-
VFR conditions possible ahead of another cold front. VFR
conditions should return late Tuesday.

&&

.EQUIPMENT...
As of 245 PM EST Wednesday...

NOAA Weather Radio, WXL60 (Roanoke Transmitter) which broadcasts at
162.475 MHz remains off the air. Telephone company will be working
on this and hope to have it back up by Thursday afternoon.

&&

.RNK WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
