NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
707 PM EDT Monday Aug 3 2015 


Synopsis... 
a stationary front along the southeastern U.S. Coast will persist 
through Tuesday. An area of low pressure will move northeast along 
the Carolina coast tonight through Tuesday night. A weak cold 
front will approach the region from the northwest on Wednesday. A 
stronger cold front will affect the area this weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 7 PM Monday...have adjusted probability of precipitation downwards through the evening 
as main area of lift has moved offshore for the time being. We can 
still expect occasional showers with an embedded storm for coastal areas 
and will maintain the chance probability of precipitation through the night here. Northern 
and western areas should see any diurnally driven thunderstorms and rain diminish 
rapidly with loss of daytime heating and have removed probability of precipitation after 
00z accordingly. 


Previous discussion...as of 230 PM Monday...an upper trough remains 
located across the Great Lakes producing weak west-southwest to west-northwest upper 
flow across the Carolinas. At the surface, a weak surface boundary 
stretches from off Cape Cod down to coastal Georgia/Florida with a 
weak surface low spinning near Jacksonville/Savannah as it moves 
northeast along the boundary. The surface low will continue to 
approach from the southwest overnight. 


Current convection stretches from Charleston, SC, northeast to off 
Oregon Inlet, with little coverage inland from the coast. Will 
continue the pop gradient of likely at the coast to slight chance 
along the coastal plains, tapering to chance along the coast this 
evening and overnight. Showers are having issues taping into 
instability but some embedded thunderstorms will occur especially 
offshore. Lows tonight will remain mild due to precipitation/cloud cover 
along the coastal counties. Minimum temperatures will range low 
70s inland to middle 70s along the coast/obx. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday/... 
as of 240 PM Monday...the surface low will lift northeast along the 
South Carolina coast Tuesday morning then along the NC coast by 
middle afternoon. Have trended probability of precipitation higher along the coast again for 
Tuesday morning/early afternoon coincident with increase in 
moisture associated with the surface low movement, along with 
shortwave energy rotating around the base of the upper trough. 
Expect mostly showers with some embedded thunderstorms. Not 
expecting severe thunderstorms but cannot completely rule them 
out, especially since low level winds will back ahead 
of/associated with the surface low transition through eastern NC. 
Low level thicknesses increase to 1415-1425 meters Tuesday 
yielding maximum temperatures in the upper 80s along the coast to low 90s 
inland. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Monday/... 
as of 245 PM Monday...with a broad trough along the East Coast, a 
fairly wet pattern is expected for late week into the weekend. 


Tuesday night/Wednesday...rain moves offshore as frontal boundary 
slides offshore Tuesday night. With an north/northwest downsloping flow behind 
the boundary on Wednesday, expect temperatures to be quite warm 
as 800 mb temperatures approach 20 degrees c with highs into the middle 90s 
inland and 88 to 91 even along the immediate coast. 


Wednesday night/Thursday...low-level convergence along a frontal 
boundary inland...coupled with sea breeze interaction, will lead 
to an enhanced chance of showers/thunderstorms late in the day on 
Thursday over far inland areas. 


Thursday night through Saturday night...with the combination of a 
broad middle-level trough, a series of waves of low pressure, and a 
deep feed of tropical moisture with precipitable waters values 
between 1.5 and 2 inches, expect a fairly wet period for late week 
through the weekend. Will have generally 40-50 percent probability of precipitation during 
the day with lingering 20-30 percent probability of precipitation at night through the period. 
Per numerical guidance, daytime temperatures will be held down by 
the cloud cover and increased precipitation, mainly middle/upper 80s 
with lows low/middle 70s. 


Sunday through Monday...cold front should move offshore early Sunday 
with somewhat drier air filtering over the region into Monday. Will 
have only slight chance probability of precipitation Sunday and Monday. Temperatures will be 
near or slightly below normal with northeast flow. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
short term /through 12z Tuesday/ 
as of 7 PM Monday...dry conditions at pgv/isolated tonight with isolated 
activity possible at ewn/oaj. Low stratus/fog unlikely overnight 
due to light southerly flow leading to modest boundary layer 
mixing, thus will hold off mention in tafs at this time. Latest 
model trends indicate another batch of rain...heavy at times... 
moving into coastal sections of NC. Whether or not the heavy rain 
area makes it as far north as kewn and koaj remains in question... 
though if it does then MVFR or IFR can be expected on Tuesday in 
lowered visibilities and ceilings. 


Long term /Tue night through Saturday/... 
as of 245 PM Monday...VFR conditions should generally prevail through 
Wednesday night with downsloping north/northwest flow. Increased convergence 
inland along a boundary on Thursday should lead to scattered 
convection an occasional sub-VFR conditions. By Friday into 
Saturday, a series of waves of low pressure systems will move 
along a stalled boundary inland and lead to frequent reductions of 
sub-VFR ceilings and visibilities. Areas that get rainfall will also see 
MVFR/IFR visibilities in fog during the late night and early morning 
hours. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /tonight/ 
as of 7 PM Monday...still observing SW winds 15 to 20 knots across much 
of the marine area...with occasional gusts at or above 25 knots. Will hold off on 
bumping up and expanding the Small Craft Advisory at this time as think that the 
higher gusts will diminish some this evening. Will have to monitor 
near term trends however and may need to reevaluate in later 
updates if the higher gusts persist. 


Previous discussion...as of 415 PM Monday...have hoisted small craft 
advisories for deteriorating conditions Tuesday morning/early 
afternoon. Seas currently 2-4 feet. The pressure gradient remains 
tightened this afternoon and tonight with 15-20 knots 
central/northern waters, to 10-20 knots south. SW winds increase 
Tuesday with gusts to 25 knots for the coastal waters south of Oregon 
Inlet, though the sounds currently appear to remain below Small Craft Advisory 
criteria. 12z wavewatch/local Swan/nwps in good agreement with a 
period of Small Craft Advisory conditions Tuesday into Tuesday night mainly for the 
waters south of Oregon Inlet. 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
as of 245 PM Monday...most of the extended period will be characterized 
by a series of a low pressure waves moving along a stalled boundary 
inland. Gusty S/SW winds will be near 20 knots with gusts to 25 knots 
with seas approaching 6 feet Tuesday night and will have a Small Craft Advisory for 
the central waters south of Oregon Inlet through about 15z Wednesday, 
then behind an initial boundary Wednesday morning, winds will become 
northwest/north before veering back to S/SW Thursday. Winds should remain S/SW 
at 15 knots or less with seas 2 to 4 feet for the balance of the 
extended period. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
as of 7 PM Monday...we are evaluating heavy rain potential for 
Tuesday as 03/18z models have indicated the potential for heavy 
rain and additional flooding...especially for coastal sections 
which have received heavy rains this afternoon. A Flood Watch may 
be needed for Tuesday in future forecast updates. Precipitable waters  above 2 
inches will coincide with area of strong lift along the 
coast as low pressure slowly moves northeast along the Carolina 
coast. Expected training of heavier cells once again on top of wet 
soils along the coast could present a flood threat. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory from 3 PM Tuesday to 10 am EDT Wednesday 
for amz152-154. 
Small Craft Advisory from 11 am Tuesday to 7 am EDT Wednesday 
for amz156-158.
