NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
507 am EDT Thursday Apr 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will shift offshore today. A cold front will approach 
from the west late Friday and cross the region Saturday. High 
pressure will build in from the northwest Sunday and move offshore 
early next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 145 am Thursday...surface ridge currently centered over 
eastern NC with upper ridging also collocated over the region. 
Temperatures have not behaved well late evening/early morning with 
coastal plain counties currently experiencing light mixing 
preventing excellent radiational cooling despite clear skies and 
large scale subsidence. Frost likely occurring along Highway 64 from 
Washington County to Mainland Dare County, and nearby Hyde County, 
based on limited surface observations of temperatures in the low 30s. 
Temperatures have also plummeted for Roanoke Island with Manteo/kmqi 
reporting 35 f at 0535z. Will hold off expanding frost advisory 
for the Outer Banks of Dare County due to the localized temperature 
anomaly of mqi compared to surrounding observation flash Flood Advisory/hse/Oregon Inlet 
tide gauge. May not see frost across western and southwestern 
zones due to light southeasterly surface flow inhibiting cooling, 
but will leave frost advisory in place for now. 


The surface ridge will shift offshore today along with the brief 
upper ridging flattening out as it slides east. Southerly surface 
flow will ensue this morning with light southwesterly flow aloft. 
Forecast soundings indicate very dry column today with precipitable waters  0.50 
inch or less. High clouds could begin building into the region 
from the west by late afternoon. Strong insolation much of the day 
with southerly flow will build temperatures into the low 70s inland to 
60s along the coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Friday/... 
as of 3 PM Wednesday...high pressure will continue offshore tonight with 
southerly to south-southwesterly flow persisting across eastern 
NC. Weak shortwave will shift over eastern NC after midnight which 
may result in increased clouds across the region, but do not 
anticipate much impact on sensible weather at this time. Minimum temperatures 
will be mild with lows in the middle 50s inland to upper 50s along 
the coast. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Wednesday/... 
as of 330 am Thursday...minor adjustments to probability of precipitation and temperatures during 
period...but no significant changes to previous forecast during 
period. 


Latest models continue to indicate main features during period 
will be very warm temperatures on Friday...followed by a short WV to north 
accompanied by a moderate cold front moving through Sat. Quick 
moving surface high will produce threat of frost for interior sections 
Sat night into Sun morning. Mainly zonal middle and upper level flow 
Monday-Wednesday but with gradually building heights leading to moderating 
temperatures. Increasing southern stream moisture along with series of weak 
disturbances will result in low chance probability of precipitation for showers/isolated thunderstorms 
Monday night into Wednesday. 


Friday...raised maximum temperatures to 82-85 inland based on latest MOS 
guidance. Breezy SW winds and good heating support warm temperatures...and 
enough instability for slight chance afternoon/evening showers/thunderstorms mainly 
with expected sea breeze push inland. 


Friday night/Saturday...fairly strong cold front will approach 
from the west Friday night...moving offshore by midday Saturday. 
Based on latest guidance...did adjust probability of precipitation to indicate higher likely 
probability of precipitation along coast holding off until Sat morning. Raised temperatures a few 
degrees both for lows Friday night and highs Sat. 


Saturday night/Sunday...strong cool high pressure builds east for 
Easter Sunday. Expect rather chilly morning low temperatures 
Sunday in the middle 30s inland to middle 40s Outer Banks and with the 
axis of the high near the coastal plains Sunday morning...winds 
could decouple with some patchy frost well inland. Highs on Sunday 
should rebound to the low/middle 60s. 


Sunday night/Monday...high pressure moves offshore with southwest 
flow again commencing. Increasing low level thicknesses support maximum 
temperatures 5-10 degrees warmer than Sunday with highs middle/upper 60s coast 
to lower 70s most inland areas. Clouds will increase during the 
day Monday given the southerly flow and increased middle-level 
shortwave energy. 


Monday night/Tuesday...00z European model (ecmwf) has trended wetter toward GFS 
solution with deeper moisture advecting into area with weak 
disturbances as well. Added slight chance probability of precipitation for Monday night and 
continued for Tuesday. Temperatures continue to warm with lows mainly 50s 
and highs in 70s. 


Tuesday night/Wednesday...latest European model (ecmwf) indicates weak cold front 
pushing in from north Wednesday while GFS holds it off to north. Low confidence 
forecast and will continue previous thinking with 20/30 probability of precipitation and highs 
approaching 80 inland. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Thursday through Monday/... 
short term /through 06z Friday/... 
as of 210 am Thursday...predominant VFR conditions expected through 
the taf period. High pressure at the surface and aloft will persist 
today through this evening yielding excellent aviation conditions 
across eastern NC. May see an increase in upper level moisture 
late this evening as next system approaches allowing cirrus to 
move into the area from the west. 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
as of 330 am Thursday...VFR expected to prevail into Friday evening 
with just a slight threat of sub-VFR in isolated showers/tstms. 
Still expect periods of sub-VFR conditions Friday night and 
Saturday morning as showers increase ahead of a cold front. Sunday 
into Monday with be VFR as cool high pressure builds into the 
region from the west. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 220 am Thursday...surface and limited buoy observations 
indicate east to southeasterly flow 5-15 knots across the waters, 
strongest south as noted by Cape Lookout C-man station and 41037 
well off Wrightsville Beach. Seas range 2-3 feet north to 3-5 feet 
south, interpolating between buoys off Cape Fear and Duck. High 
pressure currently centered over the eastern NC coastal waters 
will shift offshore today, aiding in veering winds southeast and 
south today, mostly 5-15 knots. Gradient tightens a bit late this 
afternoon and overnight for the central coastal waters where 15-20 
knots SW winds are expected which will likely produce gusts at or 
above 25 kts. Seas diminish to 1-3 feet today as the surface ridge 
axis shifts east of the waters. Seas build tonight in response to 
increasing southwesterly flow, 3-5 feet this evening with some 6 feet 
seas possible for the central waters where gusty winds are more 
likely. Will probably need small craft advisories for the central 
coastal waters this evening, expanding to larger sections of the 
eastern NC coastal waters for Friday as the pressure gradient 
tightens further ahead of an approaching cold front. 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
as of 330 am Thursday...increasing SW winds will produce period of 
Small Craft Advisory conditions most of the waters Friday into Sat morning...with 
period of gale force gusts possible outer southern and central waters Friday 
night. High pressure building in from west will result in diminishing 
winds and seas Sat night...and good boating conditions Sunday and 
Monday. 


Some potential for sea fog late Friday and Friday night with SW winds 
and increasing dew points...but not enough confidence to include 
mention in forecast at this time. 


Latest nwps in good agreement with previous forecast seas. Heights 
peaking 8-12 feet outer waters Friday night. 


&&
