Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
1021 AM EDT Sat Sep 23 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure over the eastern United States will continue to
bring warm and dry weather to the region through the first part
of next week. A cold front is forecast to cross through the area
on Wednesday or Thursday.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
As of 1015 AM EDT Saturday...

Latest satellite imagery shows mainly sunny skies with
overnight fog/stratus just about gone. Anticipate some short
wave energy may combine with diurnal instability and orographic
forcing to bring a slight chance of an isolated shower or
thunderstorm mainly across the mountains of NC, but overall a
dry and warm first full day of fall. Expect highs to reach the
mid 80s to near 90 east of the Blue Ridge with low/mid 80s to
the west.

Previous discussion...

Center of upper ridge moves from Michigan to Pennsylvania today and
tonight. 500MB heights rise over Virginia and North Carolina. Cooler
air aloft shifts to the southwest today. Better instability and
higher CAPES remain just south of the Virginia border this
afternoon. Have left a low probability of precipitation in that
region this afternoon.

Mid and high clouds From Maryland to Kentucky and tennessee see
move out of the area this morning. Models showing another batch
of low level moisture advancing into the piedmont and foothills
of Virginia and North Carolina again overnight. This may a be
where fog a low clouds form overnight. More fog again expected
in the favored areas in the mountain valleys late tonight. Used
persistence in forecast of afternoon highs and overnight lows.

&&

.SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
As of 330 AM EDT Saturday...

Model guidance this period remains in generally good agreement on
synoptic scale features, though a bit more uncertainty on cloud
cover, winds and high temps into Tuesday/midweek in our far
southeastern counties. Pattern features a large-scale ridge centered
over the northern Mid-Atlantic and southern New England, with a weak
closed upper low generally over western TN/MS/AL. A continuation of
dry conditions and summerlike temperatures appears to remain the
case in this period. Focus then turns to Hurricane Maria`s eventual
interaction with the aforementioned large-scale features. 00z
deterministic global guidance has shown a slower forward motion and
a shift in center track slightly west. Some guidance indicates some
far fringe effects - a modest increase in northeast winds and multi-
layered cloudiness - into Southside as early as Tuesday. That being
said, Maria`s closest approach to the Atlantic seaboard appears to
be around midweek (i.e. after the short-term period) with no
significant impacts projected in the interior. Interests are
encouraged to monitor the latest forecasts specific to Maria from
the National Hurricane Center.

Overall stuck with a persistence forecast for Sunday and Monday,
with dry conditions and mostly sunny skies leading to highs into the
mid/upper 80s. Lows should be commonly in the upper 50s to mid 60s,
though a couple degrees milder Monday night. Given a bit more
uncertainty this morning on western extent of cloud cover Tuesday,
did opt to lower highs a bit into the low 80s from Amherst County VA
to Rockingham County NC eastward. GFS-based BUFKIT soundings around
Danville and Farmville show east-northeast winds in the 900-700 mb
layer around 30 kts Tuesday. Don`t think these will fully mix but
did increase wind gusts slightly to around 20-22 mph in the
Southside and Caswell County NC...essentially a moderate afternoon
east-northeast breeze.

&&

.LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/...
As of 250 PM EDT Friday...

Recent guidance continues to point to Maria`s closest approach to
the Chesapeake/coastal Carolinas on Wednesday. Though the current
expectation is for no significant effects from Maria aside from a
modest increase in northeast to north winds in our far eastern
counties, will need to carefully monitor how close Maria`s
circulation gets to the Atlantic seaboard. Otherwise, with
subsidence still in place, don`t expect much in the way of shower
activity, but cloud cover as a whole should increase, especially for
those East of the Blue Ridge. A Persistence forecast trend in
temperatures will continue through this time period.

A cold front approaches from the north and west on Thursday,
bringing the possibility of isolated to scattered showers across the
area. Timing of the front, at least in the eyes of the GFS, doesn`t
look favorable for significant shower coverage or intensity, but it
should be enough to push the remnants of Maria far enough off shore
to break us free from the easterly flow. Drier and more seasonable
conditions should follow the front, and continue into the weekend.

&&

.AVIATION /14Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
As of 720 AM EDT Saturday...

Mid and high clouds have cleared out from southwest Virginia and
northern North Carolina. Coverage of MVFR fog expended as the
clouds moved west of the area. Similar to past few mornings,
several observations, including KBCB and KLWB had LIFR
visibility. KBLF has also cleared out and looks close to fogging
in. Like on Friday morning, high confidence that much of the fog
and any stratus will burn off by 14Z/10AM.

Strong high pressure will build in today. This will keep any
threat of isolated afternoon thunderstorms along the North
Carolina/ Tennessee border.

Once again little cloud cover and calm to light and variable
winds this evening will result in MVFR to LIFR fog in the
mountain valleys overnight. GFS and NAM suggest an areas of
higher low level moisture may move into the piedmont overnight.
Have some MVFR fog at KDAN but confidence is low.

Extended Aviation Discussion...

Overall persistence forecast Sunday into early next week as
strong high pressure aloft builds in from the northwest keeping
tropical moisture offshore. This should also maintain good
flying conditions along with mostly dry weather, outside of any
late night/early morning fog from Sunday through Wednesday.
