Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Beach Hazard Statement  Statement as of 4:54 am EDT on September 22, 2014


... Beach hazards statement in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
a beach hazards statement... which is in effect from 8 am EDT this
morning through this evening.

* Hazards... strong rip currents.

* Location... north of Cape Lookout.

* Timing and tides... the most likely time for strong rip currents
to develop are a couple hours either side of low tide... which
will occur around 1 PM this afternoon.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins... jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach patrol. Pay
attention to flags and posted signs posted near beach access
points and lifeguard stations.

If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the
force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach. Do not
attempt to swim directly against a rip current... since it can
exhaust and even kill the strongest swimmer.



Please visit the following website to share your thoughts on the
new rip current hazard...

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1244 PM EDT Monday Sep 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
a strong cold front will slowly move to the coast through this 
afternoon. High pressure will build north of the area tonight and 
Tuesday and persist through the week while a trough of low 
pressure lingers offshore. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 1240 PM Monday...cold front now right along the coast per 
surface observations and ewn profiler data. A small areas of 
showers will affect the southern County Warning Area through middle-afternoon and 
have raised probability of precipitation to chance there with slight chance elsewhere. 
With breaks in the cloud cover...maximum temperatures should be 
within a degree or two of 80 degrees County Warning Area-wide during the 
afternoon. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Tuesday/... 
as of 400 am Monday...low level cold air advection will increase tonight...while southern 
end of short WV curring off just west-SW of area will produce isent lift 
and keep cloudiness across area with slight chance of showers along 
the coast. Min temperatures from middle 50s inland to 60s coast. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Sunday/... 
as of 330 am Monday...the long term period will be unsettled after a 
dry day on Tuesday...with the potential for heavy rain and 
localized flooding by middle week. 


Tuesday still on track to be mainly dry as sprawling high pressure to 
the north ridges down through the Carolinas with gusty northeasterly 
flow. However...cloud cover will be on the increase and have bumped 
up sky quite a bit...as middle and high level opaque clouds act to hold 
temperatures down into the low/middle 70s for highs. 


Large scale changes in forecast for Tuesday night through Thursday...as now 
appears a wet scenario is more likely...and have bumped up probability of precipitation in 
accordance. Still heavily favoring the European model (ecmwf) solution...as this has the 
support from the wpc guidance...CMC/NAM and ecmens mean. Have all 
but discounted the GFS solution as it remains a large dry outlier. 
Closed low will be the culprit for the unsettled pattern...as 
northern stream trough swinging through the Great Lakes leaves 
behind a fairly potent middle level vorticity that will settle across the 
Carolinas on Tuesday and Wednesday. At the surface...inverted coastal trough sets 
up Tuesday night and sharpens through the day Wednesday as it propagates 
inland. Rain should develop Tuesday evening near and offshore of the 
coast becoming more widespread towards the predawn hours. Have 
bumped up probability of precipitation to likely for coastal areas late Tuesday night. 


For Wednesday...heavy rain is possible as the coastal trough 
sharpens and strengthening Omega/fgen occurs with tightening thermal 
gradient. Precipitable waters  increase to 2 inches or more per model soundings. Likely 
probability of precipitation for all but the coastal plain counties where did not feel 
comfortable quite yet so capped at high chance. Introduced heavy 
rain wording to grids as well...due to above stated reasoning. May 
be some embedded thunder with strong dynamics so introduced slight 
chance thunder wording for the southeastern half of the forecast area. The 
widespread cloud cover and rain will keep temperatures confined to the 
lower 70s for the better part of the day. 


For Thursday...some uncertainty on how closed low and weakening surface 
trough will react to the subtle upper level pattern...and have capped 
probability of precipitation to the high chance range...though still think a fairly good 
coverage of rain showers will persist in the stagnant pattern. Temperatures 
again will be held down below climatology. 


Continued a slowly diminishing pop trend for Friday and beyond...as 
whatever is left of filling upper low keeps chances of rain rather 
slim... though more clouds than sun may remain an issue. High temperatures 
will climb back towards climatology by late in the week...upper 70s to lower 
80s. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Monday through Saturday/... 
short term /through 12z Tuesday/... 
as of 1240 PM Monday...VFR conditions should prevail through the 
taf period. A few showers may impact kiso/kewn/koaj through middle- 
afternoon. There should be a sufficient temperature/dewpoint 
spread tonight along with light north-northeast winds to preclude fog 
formation. 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 330 am Monday...high pressure will persist into Tuesday though 
increase middle and high clouds expected during the day Tuesday. It appears 
now a wet scenario is likely as early as Tuesday night and continuing 
through middle week. This will bring MVFR or lower ceilings with 
widespread rain Tuesday night into Thursday. Some improvement possible by 
late in the week but clouds may remain an issue. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/ 
as of 1240 PM Monday...seas have dropped below 6 feet at Diamond 
buoy but will continue with Small Craft Advisory until 2 PM as some residual high 
seas may be occurring well offshore. Winds continue north/north-northwest at 10 to 
15 knots and little change made to forecast at this time. 


Long term /Tuesday through Saturday/... 
as of 330 am Monday...poor boating conditions expected for much of 
the long term. High pressure north of the waters will persist 
through Tuesday with winds 15-25 knots and elevated seas 5-7 feet with 
nearshore seas 3-5 feet. A wet scenario looks much more likely with 
inverted coastal trough sharpening Tuesday night bringing gusty NE 
winds and increasing seas. These conditions should linger into Wednesday 
with seas as high as 8 feet possible. Some uncertainty on wind 
strength and direction beyond Wednesday as coastal trough will gradually 
weaken though timing of this is uncertain. For now have decreasing 
winds and seas Thursday and beyond but wind direction/speed and wave 
height is subject to change. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 2 PM EDT this afternoon for amz152- 
154.
