NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
322 am EST Friday Mar 6 2015 


Synopsis... 
cold high pressure will build into the region today and remain in 
place through the weekend. A weak cold front will move through early 
Monday...then an area of low pressure will impact the region 
Tuesday and Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /today/... 
as of 3 am Friday...latest surface analysis shows cold front well south 
of the area...with cold 1037 high pressure centered over western 
Missouri/southern Illinois. Latest radar imagery shows precipitation has 
quickly shifted offshore early this morning...with lingering very 
light patchy drizzle along the coast. Surface temperatures have now dropped 
to or below freezing...from hse to dpl and areas north...still 
just above freezing along the southern coast. Thermal profiles 
support the threat of -fzdz along the coast this morning...will 
continue SC mention of -fzdz as temperatures drop to freezing. No 
additional accumulations expected...with little to no impacts 
given the warm ground temperatures. Will allow Winter Weather Advisory 
to expire at 4 am...and follow up with a Special Weather Statement with the potential 
for isolated slick spots mainly on elevated surfaces. 


Low level thickness values and north/NE flow support highs well below 
normal in the 30s. Some locations across the region...mainly the 
northern Outer Banks will struggle to get above freezing this 
afternoon. 


High surf and Wind Advisory continue for Outer Banks with 
northerly winds 25-35 miles per hour. Winds will gradually diminish this 
morning...and will continue high surf through this afternoon. 


&& 


Short term /tonight/... 
as of 3 am Friday...surface high pressure will continue to build into the 
region tonight...as weak shortwave rotates through the upper flow 
just north of the region. Below normal temperatures expected overnight 
with good radiational cooling conditions with mostly clear 
skies...lows generally 20-25 degrees. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Thursday/... 
as of 315 am Friday...expect strong warm advection to develop 
Saturday in deep southwest flow with high temperatures some 10 to 
15 degrees warmer inland than today under generally sunny skies 
as highs reach the low/middle 50s but will remain in the middle/upper 
40s Outer Banks. By Sunday...low-level flow becomes more west-southwest/west 
with strong warm advection continuing with highs into the middle 60s 
with middle 50s Outer Banks. Upper level moisture will increase late 
in the day with clouds increasing late ahead of the next southern 
stream system and back door cold front. That weak cold front will 
move north to south across the region on Monday...producing some 
light showers across the northern tier early in the day...moving 
to the coast by afternoon. Any quantitative precipitation forecast with these showers will be very 
light...but winds become northwest behind the front...but temperatures 
will be only slightly cooler. By late Monday night into early 
Tuesday morning...a weak inverted trough/coastal front forms 
offshore with cyclogenesis occurring during the afternoon Tuesday 
off the NC coast. Rain becomes widespread by late Monday night and 
especially on Tuesday...have given good agreement between the GFS 
and European model (ecmwf)...have raised probability of precipitation to likely during the day Tuesday. As 
high pressure noses south...the precipitation shifts to the coast 
Wednesday morning before ending Wednesday afternoon. A dome of 
high pressure to the north builds south Thursday with dry 
conditions...but with temperatures still fairly seasonable with 
lows in the 40s and highs around 60. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Friday through Tuesday/... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 3 am Friday...widespread sub-VFR conditions continue across 
eastern NC...pred in MVFR stratus. Precipitation has shifted 
offshore...with little to no additional impacts expected for the 
terminals. Conditions will be gradually improving to VFR later 
this morning...with northerly wind gusts 20-25kt subsiding by late 
morning/early afternoon. 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 315 am Friday...with warmer and generally dry 
weather...confidence is high for VFR conditions from early 
Saturday through at least Monday. Conditions deteriorate Monday 
night into Tuesday as low pressure forms offshore and moisture 
increases with rain developing...especially Tuesday...with periods 
of MVFR ceilings and visibilities likely. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 3 am Friday...latest surface and buoy data indicates strong 
northerly winds 20-30 knots with gusts 30-40kt...and seas 8-11 feet 
north and 5-9 feet south. Gale warnings continue for the coastal 
waters and Pamlico Sound...with scas for the Albemarle Sound and 
rivers. Winds are peaking early this morning...and gradually 
diminishing mid-morning. No sig changes needed to previous 
headlines...extended Small Craft Advisory for Albemarle and rivers through early 
this afternoon. Gale force winds diminish mid-morning/early 
afternoon for the Pamlico/northern and southern waters...though 
expected to remain gusty for the central leg through later this 
afternoon. Seas gradually subsiding tonight...with northern and 
southern waters dropping below 6ft by midnight. 


Very minor water level rises possible through late morning for 
areas adjacent to the southern Pamlico Sound...mainly downeast 
Carteret County. High surf advisory continues north of Hatteras 
through this afternoon with breaking waves 8-10ft. 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 320 am Friday...northerly winds will initially be a bit 
gusty at 15 to 20 knots early Saturday...but should become SW/west 
through the remainder of the winds at generally 15 knots or less 
with seas 2 to 4 feet. This benign conditions continue through 
much of the weekend into Monday. A weak cold front will lead to 
more northwest/north winds Monday...but speeds will be light. By 
Tuesday...low pressure forms off the NC coast and strengthens as 
it moves away. Seas build and could be near small craft 
levels...especially over the middle and southern waters by early 
Tuesday.
