AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Charleston WV 843 PM EST Mon Mar 1 2021
SYNOPSIS. Dry weather returns amid a weak cold front followed by high pressure on Tuesday. Low pressure passes south of the area midweek. High pressure slowly builds in late week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/. As of 840 PM Monday .
The forecast remains on track however nudged temperatures slightly closer to observations and set the trend through the overnight as the area is running a few degrees warmer than previously expected.
As of 615 PM Monday .
The forecast remains in tact through the period and no changes were needed at this time.
As of 130 PM Monday .
Rain showers associated with our super soaker event the past 72 hours has now departed to the east with a few places along the Ohio River Valley beginning to see peeks of sunshine. Stratocu left behind by the cold front will gradually lift and scatter this afternoon ahead of this evening's secondary cold front. This moisture starved boundary will bring a reinforcing shot of cold air overnight, which will prompt Tuesday morning lows in the 20s across the lowlands and teens in the mountains amid mostly clear skies. Icy spots and/or black ice on the roadways may arise Tuesday morning given the wet ground conditions.
A brief upslope snow event could take shape in the mountains this evening as the secondary front propagates down from the north. Light snow showers could prosper in Randolph and Pocahontas Counties before optimal northwest flow shuts off shortly after midnight, with very little accumulations expected. The bigger story in the mountains tonight will be the gusty winds that remain in place beneath a tightened pressure gradient. Gusts themselves will be borderline and may not quite reach 40 knots, but with wet ground conditions in place a few pulses of wind this afternoon into this evening could easily cause uprooted trees. Therefore, a Wind Advisory will be in place this afternoon through late tonight in southeast Randolph and Pocahontas County.
While the much needed dry weather has returned for the foreseeable future, we still have residual flooding impacts that will be closely monitored over the next several days. Streams have begun to recede, but mainstem rivers are continuing to see a rise this afternoon into midweek, pending location. Even though waters are beginning to recede for some spots across the forecast area, continue to heed any road closures.
High pressure moves in throughout the day Tuesday with a long stretch of dry weather incoming. Chamber of Commerce weather would almost be in place if it weren't for the colder temperatures in place within the arctic airmass. The abundant sunshine is still welcomed, though.
SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 150 PM Monday .
Generally quiet weather anticipated although a closed low slinks by to our south Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. I doubt this will have any impact on our region, however, the blended forecast guidance does keep a small chance of snow across our southwest VA counties Tuesday night. Otherwise, fair skies until a dry cold front passes Wednesday night into Thursday morning bringing an increase in clouds, especially in the mountains.
LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 150 PM Monday .
Continued quiet regime with high pressure dominating at the surface. Another closed low is shunted to our south over the weekend and this should have minimal impact on our region except for a slight increase in clouds. Otherwise, fair skies are expected with near or slightly below seasonal temperatures.
AVIATION /02Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 630 PM Monday .
Moderate northwesterly flow, still gusting 20-30KT in the higher terrain, will veer out of the northeast by mid morning and progressively weaken to just about light and variable as high pressure builds in over the area through Tuesday. Some stratocu hangs around through the overnight mainly focusing on the northeast mountains with a chance of borderline MVFR/VFR for the early morning. Some of these clouds could potentially squeeze out a few flakes, but nothing significant nor expecting really any flight restrictions other than that chance of CIGs on the high side of MVFR. Other than that, VFR is forecast to prevail for the rest of this period and beyond.
FORECAST CONFIDENCE AND ALTERNATE SCENARIOS THROUGH 00Z WEDNESDAY . FORECAST CONFIDENCE: High.
ALTERNATE SCENARIOS: Timing of stratocu clouds clearing out around CKB/EKN may vary slightly for Tuesday morning.
