Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Blacksburg VA 707 PM EST Mon Mar 1 2021

SYNOPSIS. Strong winds overnight into Monday and colder temperatures as Canadian high pressure builds into the area tonight and Tuesday. A vigorous weather system will move just to our south Wednesday and could bring a wintry mix to the southern part of the area followed by rain later in the day. Fair weather is expected for the later part of the week. Mild temperatures this morning will return back to seasonal levels and even below as we go through the remainder of the week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 700 PM EST Monday .

Not much change in the forecast this evening as it appears to still be on track. One concern overnight on top of the remaining flood issues across West Virginia and the Alleghany Highlands will the the possibility of refreezing. Temperatures dropping into the low 20s, along with ample run off and flooded roads that are beginning see water recede, the threat for icy spots on roadways is becoming a concern by early Tuesday morning. Will continue to monitor for the next few hours.

As of 200 PM EST Monday .

Windy weather after rainfall could bring trees down in mountains .

Rain has mostly exited the area, though a few light showers persist along and just south of the VA/NC border. Coverage will diminish quickly in the next couple hours. Strong winds will follow behind the cold front this afternoon, with wind gusts 15-25 MPH for most of the CWA, mountain areas up to 35-45 MPH. Because of the over- saturation of soils from two days of rain and 1-3" of rainfall in the western areas of the mountains, winds will be more impactful in terms of tree and potential power line damage. The soft soils will make an easy target for trees being blown over. A Wind Advisory has been issued for Western Greenbrier County, WV and Bath County, VA from 2PM EST Monday until 1AM EST Tuesday. Winds should calm overnight into Tuesday as the boundary layer separates from the stronger winds aloft and high pressure starts to settle over us and suppress the active weather.

The Clinch River at Richlands and the Greenbrier River at Alderson are both currently in flood. A few flood warnings and advisories remain in effect in southeastern WV and western VA as runoff from this morning's rain continues to impact the area.

Tuesday will have a few clouds in the sky, but should be mostly clear, especially in VA and WV. Overnight lows will be in the mid- 20s west of the Blue Ridge, low to mid 30s east. Tuesday's highs will be in the 40s for most, though some east of the Blue Ridge will touch 50.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/. As of 135 PM EST Monday .

Models trending slightly south with light precipitation event Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

Overall 500 mb flow is northwest through the period. A short wave and associated upper diffluence and jet streak will cross into South Carolina then offshore late Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning. The low level convergence on the latest 3KM NAM was slightly slower and about a county farther north than the 12Z GFS but either way a majority of the loft will be between 03Z/10Pm Tuesday and 15Z/10AM Wednesday before surface and low level winds come back around to the northwest. Northern edge of the deep moisture and saturated lower levels will be roughly a Boone to Yadkinville line, but mid and high clouds will extend north at least up to Route 460. Will tighten gradient for probability of precipitation for Tuesday night and Wednesday.

A secondary push of cold air advection, along with an increase in upslope low levels winds and moistures arrives in the central Appalachians on Wednesday night and Thursday. Will have upslope cloud cover on the western side of the central Appalachians this time frame. Clouds will hold back warm up in the western mountains on Thursday.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 135 PM EST Monday

Another southern stream short wave crosses the southeast United States Friday night and Saturday. WPC hols precipitation south of Virginia and the Carolinas through the extended period.

Then 500MB heights rise as upper ridging builds over the east through Monday. Under high pressure and a dry air mass Sunday and Monday temperatures will gradually warm back up close to normal.

AVIATION /00Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 700 PM EST Monday .

Wind will be the main topic for the first half of the TAF period. Gusty northwest winds will continue through early Tuesday morning, with some ridgetops gusting in the 30-40kt range. Otherwise, all official TAF sites should remain below 25-30kts gusts, with winds beginning to diminish somewhat after midnight. Winds lighter tomorrow out of the west.

VFR conditions will prevail for the entire 24 hour TAF period.

Forecast confidence is moderate to high.

Extended Aviation Discussion .

Drier weather and VFR conditions are expected across the region through Tuesday night. A quick moving low pressure system moving across the southeastern U.S. Wednesday and Wednesday night may bring MVFR clouds and light, possibly wintry precipitation, to the Carolinas Wednesday morning. Some MVFR upslope clouds are possible in southeast West Virginia Wednesday as well. Drier conditions should return late in the week with mostly VFR conditions.
