NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
356 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will build over the area through Thursday...as a 
frontal boundary remains stationary over the offshore waters. The 
front will drift back toward the coast and remain stationary over 
eastern NC Friday into the weekend with a rainy weather pattern 
returning. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 130 PM Wednesday...isolated shower/thunderstorm possible early...otherwise 
another quiet night. Overnight lows in the lower 60s to lower 70s 
with light NE/east flow. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday/... 
as of 130 PM Wednesday...mainly dry on Thursday. Will keep a slight chance 
pop inland during the afternoon hours...as low level flow will be 
east-southeast allowing for an isolated shower/storm to develop on inland 
propagating sea breeze. Highs will be in the middle/upper 80s and near 
80 coast. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 345 PM Wednesday...Thursday night will generally be dry...though 
some model guidance beginning to bring in some precipitation as early as 
the pre dawn hours Friday. Have continued with low pop for the late 
night period. The European model (ecmwf) continues to be faster with sharpening 
coastal trough developing as early as late Thursday night...while 
NAM/GFS hold off until Friday...therefore only small chance probability of precipitation 
advertised. 


Atmosphere moistens quickly Friday as long wave trough axis sharpens 
to the west in response to shortwave energy moving through the 
upper flow...allowing for a rich supply of deep Gulf/Caribbean 
moisture to train into the southeastern Seaboard. Precipitable waters  rise to 2 
inches or greater...with inverted trough along the coast and 
favorable upper dynamics for large scale ascent with the area in 
right entrance region of upper jet. Temperatures will be held down by 
the abundant clouds and rain...which will also act to limit 
destabilization so no severe weather is expected. 


The upper trough remains to the west through the weekend with 
area still in favorable right entrance region of jet...and 
therefore conditions are expected to remain quite wet as the 
coastal boundary remains across the area and continue probability of precipitation in the 
high chance to low likely range. The upper trough lifts out next 
week with the subtropical ridge over the western Atlantic building 
into the region and expect more typical summertime diurnally 
driven convection to return by midweek. 


European model (ecmwf)/wpc quantitative precipitation forecast amounts through the long term are in the 2 to 4 inch 
range...and as high as 5 inches. With much of eastern NC having 
received copious amounts of rain over the last several 
weeks...with places in the coastal plain and Crystal Coast areas 
at 150-200 percent of normal rainfall...so flooding concerns will 
be possible if the forecast materializes. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Wednesday through Monday/... 
short term /tonight and Thursday/... 
as of 130 PM Wednesday...predom VFR conds through Thursday. Patchy fog 
possible again late tonight/early Thursday morning. Isolated 
rain showers/thunderstorms and rain in the afternoon. 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 345 PM Wednesday... a trough of low pressure moves back into the 
region Friday through the weekend putting east NC in favorable regime 
for widespread showers and thunderstorms with periods of sub VFR 
conditions expected. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /tonight and Thursday/... 
as of 130 PM Wednesday...latest observation continue to show NE winds 5-15 knots and 
seas 2-4 feet. Surface high pressure will continue over the area with a 
stalled frontal boundary offshore. Winds will begin to gradually 
veer to east overnight. Winds tonight and Thursday NE-east 5-15 knots and seas 
2-4 feet. 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 345 PM Wednesday...the front offshore retreats westward as a 
coastal Thursday night and Friday. The European model (ecmwf) continues to be faster 
bringing the trough into the region early Friday morning while the 
American models continue to be slower...switching winds around to 
the south later Friday. The coastal trough will also bring periods 
of unsettled weather in form of rain and thunderstorms beginning 
as early as Thursday night and lingering through the weekend and 
possibly into early next week. Winds and seas should remain sub 
Small Craft Advisory through the long term period with winds generally around 
15 knots or less and seas generally in the 2 to 4 foot range.
