NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MELBOURNE FL
341 AM EDT THU JUL 30 2015

.DISCUSSION...
TODAY-TONIGHT...MODELS SHOW THAT THE AREA OF LOWER PRECIPITABLE
WATER VALUES...THAT SLIPPED INTO NORTHERN AREAS YESTERDAY...
MOISTENING BACK UP ABOVE 2 INCHES. THIS SEEMS REASONABLE AS THE
PERIPHERAL DRYING FROM LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OFFSHORE NORTH FLORIDA
LIFTS FARTHER AWAY TO THE NORTHEAST. 

HAD BEEN A BIT DUBIOUS ABOUT THE 50-70 POPS ADVERTISED BY MOS
ESPECIALLY SINCE THERE WAS CONSIDERABLE DEBRIS CLOUDINESS
OVERSPREADING THE PENINSULA FROM CONVECTION OFFSHORE. RECENT
TRENDS SHOW THE CLOUDS DIMINISHING...AND AS THE LOW PULLS SLOWLY
NORTHEAST...EXPECT THIS TREND TO CONTINUE. THEREFORE MOST PLACES
SHOULD HEAT UP TO AROUND 90 OR THE LOWER 90S. THE MODELS HAVE BEEN
SHOWING TEMPS ALOFT COOLING TO AROUND MINUS 7 CELSIUS. THEREFORE
EXPECT A FEW MORE STRONG STORMS...WITH FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES
BEING THE MAIN DANGER. FORECAST SOUNDINGS SHOW SOME LINGERING
DRIER AIR ALOFT...SO ISOLATED STRONG WIND GUSTS 50-60 MPH COULD
OCCUR AGAIN.

AS FAR AS DISTRIBUTION/TIMING OF THE STORMS...WOULD EXPECT A
GENERAL SCENARIO SIMILAR TO YESTERDAY WITH SHOWERS/STORMS MOVING
ACROSS SOUTHERN SECTIONS EARLIEST (WHERE THE STRONGEST/DEEPEST
WESTERLY FLOW WILL EXIST). THE LOCAL WRF AND HRRR MODELS GENERALLY
SHOW THIS OCCURRING...WITH LATER AND SLOWER MOVING STORMS EXPECTED
ACROSS THE NORTH AS BOUNDARIES INTERACT. THESE STORMS COULD BE
THE STRONGEST OF THE DAY.

MOS HAS POPS 50-60 PERCENT IN THE SOUTH TONIGHT...BUT GIVEN THE
ABOVE DISCUSSION...HAVE TRENDED BELOW THOSE UN-CLIMATOLOGICAL
VALUES. 

FRI-FRI NIGHT...WEAK AREA OF LOW PRESSURE AT 500 MB LINGERS OFF OF 
THE IMMEDIATE EAST FLORIDA COAST WITH MID-LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE 
RIDGING EXTENDING NORTH OF THE AREA ACROSS THE GULF COAST STATES. 
AT THE SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGING REMAINS SUPPRESSED ACROSS THE 
SOUTHERN FL PENINSULA/FL STRAITS. A WEAK AREA OF SURFACE LOW 
PRESSURE OFF OF THE CAROLINAS EARLY IN THE PERIOD WILL LIFT FAIRLY 
RAPIDLY NORTHEASTWARD AWAY FROM THE AREA. DEEP LAYER MOISTURE 
CONTINUES WITH PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES IN EXCESS OF 2 INCHES 
ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA. SUBTLE IMPULSES ALOFT...DEEP MOISTURE AND 
BOUNDARY INTERACTIONS THROUGH THE DAY WILL ALLOW FOR HIGH END CHANCE 
POPS (50 PERCENT) NEAR I-4 CORRIDOR NORTHWARD (AFTN/EVENING) AND 
LIKELY CHANCES (60-70 PERCENT) SOUTHWARD. SCHC/LOW END CHC WORDING 
FOR POPS DURING THE MORNING. LOWERING RAIN CHANCES FRI NIGHT THOUGH 
REALISTICALLY THERE WILL REMAIN AT LEAST A SLIGHT CHANCE ACROSS ECFL 
OVERNIGHT. STORM MOVEMENT MAINLY OUT OF THE SW OR W. HIGHS IN THE 
U80S TO AROUND 90 AND LOWS GENERALLY IN THE M/U 70S.

WEEKEND...SURFACE RIDGE AXIS WILL REMAIN SITUATED OVER THE SOUTHERN 
FL PENINSULA AS SSW/SW FLOW CONTINUES IN THE LOW-LEVELS. ALOFT...A 
GENERALLY TROUGHY PATTERN CONTINUES ALONG THE EASTERN SEABOARD TO 
INCLUDE THE FLORIDA PENINSULA. WE ALSO MAINTAIN THE DEEP MOISTURE 
AND RELATIVELY WARM TEMPERATURES ALOFT. THE STORM MOTION WHILE WEAK 
WILL GENERALLY FAVOR A WEST TO EAST MOVEMENT. LOCALLY HEAVY 
RAINFALL...GUSTY WINDS AND CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING WILL REMAIN THE 
MAIN CONVECTIVE THREATS. WITH THIS PERSISTENT PATTERN WILL KEEP 
LOWER END SCHC/CHC POPS DURING THE MORNING AND MAINLY LIKELY (60 
PERCENT) MENTION FOR THE AFTERNOON/EARLY EVENING PERIODS. HIGHS/LOWS 
WILL REMAIN CONSISTENT FROM WHAT WE HAVE BEEN SEEING RECENTLY.

MON-WED...ALOFT...AS THE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGING CONTINUES TO AMPLIFY 
OVER THE WESTERN U.S. THE GENERAL TROUGHINESS WILL CONTINUE ACROSS 
THE EASTERN CONUS. THE SURFACE ATLANTIC RIDGE WILL BEGIN BUILDING 
BACK NORTHWARD TUE-WED AS THE EASTERN CONUS LOW-LEVEL TROUGHING  
SHIFTS WEST OVER THE GULF OF MEXICO. EXPECT MOISTURE TO REMAIN HIGH 
AND POPS 50 PERCENT OR A LITTLE HIGHER STILL SEEM WARRANTED...EXCEPT 
POSSIBLY TRENDING LOWER WED...IF THE SURFACE RIDGE DOES INDEED BUILD 
BACK INTO CENTRAL FLORIDA.

&&

.AVIATION...A FEW MVFR CEILINGS WILL OCCUR UNTIL A LITTLE AFTER
SUNRISE. THERE IS A LITTLE MORE LOW LEVEL WIND THIS MORNING...BUT
LOCAL IFR COULD BRIEFLY OCCUR TOO. THEN THE MAIN FORECAST PROBLEM
BECOMES THE TIMING OF STORMS. EXPECT THAT FROM ABOUT KVRB-KSUA
THERE WILL BE A CHANCE FOR STORMS RATHER EARLY AGAIN...ABOUT
16-20Z...WITH THE REMAINING TERMINALS LIKELY HAVING THE GREATEST
CHANCE BETWEEN 18-22Z. A FEW STRONG STORMS WITH WIND FREQUENT
LIGHTNING STRIKES AND GUSTY WINDS OVER 30 KNOTS ARE EXPECTED AGAIN.

&&

.MARINE...
TODAY-TONIGHT...SOUTHWEST WIND FLOW REGIME WILL CONTINUE WITH
SPEEDS 10-15 KNOTS OFFSHORE AND 5-10 KNOTS CLOSE TO THE COAST. THE
MAIN MARINER CONCERN WILL BE OFFSHORE MOVING SHOWERS/STORMS WHICH
COULD MOVE OFFSHORE THE TREASURE COAST BY EARLY AFTERNOON.
STEERING FLOW WILL BE WEAK NORTHWARD TO THE VOLUSIA COAST...BUT A
FEW STRONG STORMS COULD AFFECT THE NEARSHORE WATERS LATE IN THE
AFTERNOON.

FRI-FRI NIGHT...SURFACE RIDGE AXIS REMAINS SUPPRESSED TO THE SOUTH. 
MAINLY SSW/SW WINDS AROUND 10 KTS. SEAS GENERALLY AOB 3 FT. 
WINDS/SEAS LOCALLY HIGHER INVOF OF STRONGER CONVECTION. OFFSHORE 
MOVING STORM CELLS REMAIN A THREAT THROUGH THE PERIOD. COVERAGE OF 
SHOWERS/STORMS LOOKS RATHER HIGH AND STORMS SHOULD START TO PRODUCE 
MORE FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES.

SAT-MON...SURFACE RIDGE AXIS ACROSS THE SOUTHERN PENINSULA INTO 
EARLY NEXT WEEK. LITTLE CHANGE IN MOIST SSW/SW WIND FLOW REGIME. 
STORM MOTION STILL OFFSHORE BUT WEAKER. BOATERS SHOULD CONTINUE TO 
BE VIGILANT FOR MARINE STORMS... ESPECIALLY DURING THE AFTERNOON AND 
EVENING. WIND SPEEDS AOB 15 KTS WITH SEAS 2-4 FT GENERALLY.
