Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 5:49 am EDT on May 30, 2015


... North Carolina hurricane preparedness week for 2015...

This week has been declared North Carolina's hurricane preparedness
week for 2015. All week long the National Weather Service has been
issuing informative messages to help you prepare for hurricane
season.

Each day we have covered a different topic. Today we will talk
about dealing with a weather disaster.

Disaster prevention includes developing a family plan... creating
a disaster supply kit... having a place to go... securing your
home... and having a pet plan.

Your family plan... your family's disaster plan should be based on
your vulnerability to hurricane hazards such as rainfall
flooding and high winds. You should keep a written plan and be
sure to share it not only with your family... but also with your
friends and neighbors. That way everyone will know what you are
going to do when a hurricane threatens.

Creating a disaster supply kit... there are certain items that you
need to have in your kit regardless of where you ride the
hurricane out. A disaster supply kit is a useful tool when you
evacuate... as well as making your family as safe as possible in
your home. Your kit should include the following...

1) at least 1 gallon of water per person per day for 3 to 7 days.
2) about 3 to 7 days Worth of non-perishable food.
3) blankets and pillows.
4) seasonal clothing including rain gear and sturdy shoes.
5) special items for children and the elderly.
6) first aid bandages... medicine... and prescription drugs.
7) toiletries.
8) flashlights with batteries.
9) a battery powered radio and NOAA Weather Radio all hazards.
10) Cash (banks and a T m's may be closed for extended periods)
11) Keys
12) toys... books and games.
13) important documents in a Waterproof container (insurance papers)
14) tools
15) a vehicle with its Gas Tank filled.
16) pet care items.

Secure your home... there are several things you should do to
reduce your homes vulnerability. Be sure to pick up all loose
items in and around your yard such as garbage cans... toys... lawn
furniture... potted plants... and so on. If you wish to cover your
windows be sure to use hurricane shudders or at least 5/8 inch
plywood. This will keep the wind out of your house. Also be sure
to reinforce you garage door.

Evacuation... if you are asked to evacuate... you should do so
without delay. You may also want to evacuate even if not asked to
do so if the area around your home is prone to flooding. It is
very important that you evaluate your homes vulnerability. You
could become cut off to the outside world by flood waters... or
falling trees may threaten your family. Also it is very important
to remember that in areas that have been told to evacuate...
various emergency services may be hindered... meaning that fire...
E M S... and police may not be able to reach you.

Preventing the loss of life and minimizing the damage to property
from hurricanes are responsibilities that are shared by all. The
most important thing that you can do is to be informed and
prepared.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1010 am EDT Sat may 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will extend over the region from the northeast 
through the weekend. A cold front will approach from the northwest 
on Monday and gradually push south through the area by the middle 
of next week. High pressure builds north of the area for the 
second half of the work week. 


&& 


Near term /rest of today/... 
as of 1010 am Sat...no major changes to ongoing forecast. Adjusted 
wind magnitudes and hourly temperatures slightly to reflect current 
conditions and near term trends. Removed mention of thunder as 
virtually no shear and negligible instability with capping in 
place this afternoon. 


Previous discussion...as of 655 am Saturday...weak surface high 
pressure over the northwestern Atlantic Ocean continues to nose 
west- southwest into eastern NC this morning while upper level 
ridging remains centered along the Carolina coastline. Dry 
conditions will persist this morning. Patchy fog was observed 
across a few metars this morning but expect fog to mix out quickly 
this morning. 


Very little change in synoptic setup for today with large scale 
features remaining in place. This scenario suggests a persistence 
forecast will likely yield the best results, so will continue a 
low slight chance pop inland this afternoon where very isolated 
showers have initiated over the past few days, dissipating with 
loss of heating around sunset. Light southeasterly winds expected 
today with forecast soundings indicating precipitable waters  struggling to build 
near 1.40 inches, slightly less than yesterday. Instability 
remains sufficient for weak/isolated showers/thunderstorms though the 
inland moving sea-breeze is perhaps the only real trigger for 
showers/storms. Today may in fact remain dry. Maximum temperatures 
will range 3-5 degrees above normal with highs in the middle/upper 
80s inland to upper 70s/lower 80s along the coast. 


&& 


Short term /tonight/... 
as of 205 am Saturday...the surface ridge will shift slightly 
farther away from the region tonight allowing surface winds to 
shift more south-southeasterly which will help to increase low 
level showers. The upper ridge remains in place overhead, however, 
which should yield enough subsidence to inhibit shower development 
overnight except for the coastal waters where guidance suggests 
showers may develop near the Gulf Stream. Will maintain slight 
chance probability of precipitation for the coastal waters tonight but keep dry elsewhere. 
Mild overnight temperatures again with lows similar to this morning, low 
60s inland to upper 60s/low 70s along the coast. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Friday/... 
as of 320 am Saturday...high pressure surface and aloft will 
continue to influence the weather through the Monday with warm 
temperatures. There will be only minimal chances for 
precipitation on Sunday, then on Monday deeper moisture should 
lead to scattered showers/thunderstorms inland during the 
afternoon/evening hours. 


The pattern will change Tuesday as an approaching middle level 
trough finally breaks down the eastern US upper ridge. Associated 
cold front will slowly move across the region Tuesday and 
Wednesday with a possibility for a frontal wave to form along the 
boundary which could produce locally heavy rainfall. The front 
should move just south of the area Thursday and dissipate as high 
pressure builds in from the north and produces an northeasterly 
flow of slightly cooler and somewhat drier air over the region 
for late next week. Late in the period model deference's lead to 
a below normal confidence level as the southern portion of the middle 
level low cuts off into an upper low. The GFS is much slower to 
move the upper and associated surface low across the southeast 
states suggesting the potential for a significant rainfall event 
while the European model (ecmwf)/CMC models are more progressive and would indicate 
less precipitation potential. The models also differ on how well 
defined the surface system will be with the GFS the most 
organized. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
short term /through 12z Sunday/... 
as of 655 am Saturday...mostly VFR conditions expected across the 
taf sites through the period. Brief/shallow fog at MVFR levels 
may be possible through 12z this morning but should mix out 
quickly after strong insolation initiates this morning. Light 
south-southeasterly winds expected today with isolated diurnally 
driven convection possible this afternoon. 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
as of 320 am Saturday...VFR conditions are expected to prevail 
through Monday morning with surface ridge extending over area from the E-NE. 
A cold front will approach on Monday and move slowly through area 
Tuesday-Wednesday resulting in some periods of sub-VFR conditions with 
showers and thunderstorms. Best coverage expected Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /today and tonight/... 
as of 655 am Saturday...latest surface and buoy data indicate 
light and variable winds with medium period seas 2-4 feet across 
the eastern NC waters. High pressure continues to extend west-southwest over 
the eastern NC waters this morning and will persist today before 
shifting farther away from the region tonight. Winds will become 
south-southeasterly this afternoon and overnight but remain 10 
knots or less. Local Swan/nwps and wavewatch in good agreement 
indicating seas mostly 2-3 feet with some 4-5 feet seas along the 
outer fringes of the central waters through tonight due to swells 
radiating west away from weak area of low pressure well east of 
the region. 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
as of 320 am Saturday...southerly flow 15 knots or less is expected 
to occur through Tuesday ahead of a slow moving cold front. The 
GFS is faster in pushing this front through the NC waters and 
preferred the slower European model (ecmwf) solution so will bring the front 
through the waters Tuesday night. The GFS is stronger with the 
Post frontal northeasterly flow which increases to 15 to 20 knots. 
Again will side with the European model (ecmwf) model which has weaker flow around 
15 knots. Seas are forecast to be 2 to 4 feet through the period in 
mixture of easterly swell and southerly wind wave through Tuesday. 
Northeasterly wind waves will develop on Wednesday behind the 
front.
