NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Raleigh NC 
300 am EST Sat Nov 29 2014 


Synopsis...high pressure will remain over the southeastern US 
through the weekend. Meanwhile...Arctic high pressure will build 
from western Canada to New England...and consequently force a strong 
cold front through central NC Monday night through early Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 
as of 920 PM Friday... 


1028 mb Continental polar surface high pressure centered near the SC 
coast this evening will remain so tonight. Despite periods of mostly 
high level cloudiness that satellite imagery and near term nwp 
guidance suggests will peak overhead with the arrival of an upper 
jet exit region in northwesterly flow around 06z...good to excellent 
radiational cooling conditions are expected...with perhaps just a 
slower fall or steadying of the temperatures during the late night 
hours. Climatology for low level thickness values around 1300 meters 
(observed at 1299 M at gso at 00z) with such radiational cooling 
conditions supports lows in the middle to upper 20s - which should 
be pretty easily attainable since 915 PM temperatures were already 
in the 27 to 33 degree range across the County warning forecast area. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Tuesday night/... 
as of 300 am Saturday... 


Warm Monday... then much colder Tuesday... 


Monday should be the warmest day this week with a good warm air advection pattern 
expected... as the flow around the departing high pressure offshore 
increases ahead of the next cold front. This front will approach 
late in the day but is expected to be moisture starved with the Gulf 
and Atlantic Cut off. Expect mostly sunny skies with a breezy west-SW 
wind. Highs a good 10-12 degrees above normal yields at least 65-72. 


The actual cold front will move in from the north Monday night. 
Modified Arctic air is expected to be driven into our region 
courtesy of the 1040+ mb surface high pressure that will be moving 
east over the Great Lakes Tuesday. There are still differences in 
the amount of low level moisture that follows the front late Monday 
night and Tuesday. Forecast soundings indicate that the moisture 
will be shallow and there may only be some light drizzle or very 
light patchy rain possible with the predominate flow off the 
Atlantic into central and western NC. Regardless... it will turn 
overcast and colder with a noticeable chilly breeze from the NE. Lows 
Monday night should dip into the upper 30s to middle 40s NE to SW. 
Highs Tuesday only 40-45... except 45-50 southeast. We will maintain a low 
chance pop for a few hundredths of rain Tuesday into Tuesday night. 
High confidence in no freezing temperatures for either Monday night 
or Tuesday night (thus no chance of light freezing rain or drizzle). 


Skies should begin to clear out Tuesday night if the models are 
correct in building the center of the high over central NC. Lows 
generally in the 30s expected. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Friday/... 
as of 305 am Saturday... 


The aforementioned surface high is forecast to be progressive and 
move offshore in the increasingly fast zonal flow aloft. This will 
allow another cold front (pacific air this time) to approach later 
Wednesday. High pressure will again build into our area from the 
Great Lakes Thursday... before rapidly shifting over New England and 
out to sea Friday. Sensible weather will be for partly sunny skies 
Wednesday with highs warming back into the 55-62 range. Then mostly 
sunny/clear Wednesday night into Friday with temperatures very close 
to the 30 year averages for early December. 


All in all... a rather mild week of weather after last weeks storm. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 700 PM Friday... 


VFR conditions will prevail over the next 24 hours as the area 
remains under the influence of high pressure. Currently calm winds 
across will become south to southwesterly by tomorrow afternoon as 
the surface high moves off the Carolina coast. 


The chance for some fog or stratus will increase Sunday and Monday 
mornings as southerly flow increases with the high shifting 
offshore. Otherwise...the next chance for precipitation that may impact 
flight conditions will be on Monday night into Tuesday 
associated with the next cold front. 


&& 


Rah watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
