NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
215 PM EST Sat Nov 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will move offshore tonight. A warm front will lift 
north through the region Sunday and Sunday night. A cold front 
will approach from the west Monday and push offshore by early 
Tuesday. Low pressure will develop along the front late Tuesday 
night and move northeast offshore of the coast Wednesday. The low 
will depart to the northeast Wednesday night with high pressure 
building over the region late in the week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 210 PM Saturday...quiet weather will continue as the strong 
high overhead this afternoon slides offshore. Skies will remain 
clear into the evening then later tonight expect will see increasing 
clouds as moisture increases both at low levels and aloft. Good 
radiational cooling through the evening with lows inland dropping 
into the 30s. Later tonight as winds become onshore and clouds 
increase may see temperatures rise a bit escply CST. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday/... 
as of 210 PM Saturday...strong warm/moist advection expected 
across the region Sunday as a warm front moves in during the afternoon. 
Models show precipitation water values surging from less than 1 inch early to 
1.75 inches late. Strong isent lift will also overspread the area and 
coupled with the increasing moisture will lead to showers 
developing from north to S in the afternoon. Continue previous forecast of likely to 
Cat probability of precipitation far S to chance far north late. Shear and helicity values become 
impressive late...however models keep surface based instability S of the region 
through Sun afternoon and this shld limit threat for any severe weather until 
mainly after 00z. Did keep isolated thunderstorms and rain in southern tier late as some 
elevated instability likely. Increasing S/southeast winds will lead to milder 
temperatures with middle to upper 60s S and low to middle 60s north. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Friday/... 
as of 1245 PM Sat...large upper trough over the central part of the 
country with lots of energy rotating around it will make for an 
active extended term. Trough will continue to dig into the southern 
tier states through middle week then lift through the southeast and middle 
Atlantic through the end of the week. European model (ecmwf) is sharper...deeper and 
faster with this upper trough than the gfsens. This leads to some 
small timing differences with the surface features on bringing the 
cold front through Tuesday...and more significant differences on 
Wednesday with wave that will form on the front. European model (ecmwf) develops a 
deeper low closer to the coast with stronger surface winds. Will 
trend toward stronger solution...but with low confidence. 


Complicated system will move into area Sunday night from the Gulf 
Coast region. Good speed and directional shear on the forecast 
soundings. Deep layer moisture and precipitable waters  above 1.5 inches. Instability 
increasing during the night and most of the area is in a slight 
risk. Continued strong southerly flow during the day on Monday will 
kick afternoon high temperatures well into the 70s. Next piece of 
energy will approach Monday night...pushing a cold front through 
eastern North Carolina during the morning hours Tuesday. Strong 
upper level energy will swing through the base of the upper trough. 
Wave will form on the surface front in the Gulf Tuesday and will 
move up the East Coast during the night Tuesday night. Cross 
sections showing deep layer moisture and good lift. As 
mentioned...models differ in the strength and location of this wave. 
It will lift north of the area latitude Wednesday with a reinforcing 
surge coming through late Thursday. Models trending drier with this 
system than in previous runs. High pressure will build in Friday. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Saturday through Thursday/... 
short term /through Sunday/... 
as of 1210 PM Saturday...high confidence in VFR conditions through late 
tonight as high pressure with a dry airmass controls the weather. 
Late tonight the models are suggesting a coastal trough will be 
lifting onshore with increasing low level moisture...cant rule out 
some lower ceilings and visibilities but will keep VFR for now. As warm front 
lifts into the region Sunday widespread rain showers will overspread the 
region from north to S in the afternoon. Ceilings and visibilities will lower to sub VFR 
during the afternoon and S/southeast winds will become gusty as well. 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 1254 PM Sat...MVFR/IFR conditions likely Sunday night into 
Monday as a warm front lifts through the area. Isolated 
thunderstorms and gusty winds can be expected. There will be a 
continued chance of rain with sub VFR conditions possible in the 
precipitation Monday and Tuesday. A strong low pressure will move up 
the coast Tuesday night with IFR conditions likely...in addition to 
rain and strong winds. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Sunday/... 
as of 210 PM Saturday...good boating conditions will continue tonight 
then rapidly go downhill Sunday. Strong high pressure overhead this afternoon 
will shift offshore tonight. Light and variable winds will become 
S/southeast 5 to 10 kts along the coast late. Seas will be mainly in the 2 
to 3 foot range overnight. A warm front will lift north into eastern NC 
Sunday with S/southeast winds increasing...espcly during the afternoon. Expect 
speeds to reach 15 to 20 kts north and 20 to 30 kts S by evening with 
seas building to 5 to 8 feet...highest outer southern waters. 


Long term /Sunday night through Thu/... 
as of 116 PM Sat...gale advisory will be in effect Sunday night as 
tight gradient ahead of an approaching cold front kicks sustained 
southerly winds up to 30 knots with gusts to 40 knots 
possible...building seas up to 12 to 13 feet...mainly in the central 
waters. Front expected to move through the North Carolina coastal 
waters Tuesday morning with gradient loosening behind it...allowing 
north and northwesterly flow to subside and seas to diminish below 
Small Craft Advisory criteria by Tuesday afternoon. 


Strong low pressure will form on the front Tuesday night and move up 
the coast...tightening the gradient. Models differ on strength and 
position of this low pressure so confidence is low on wind speed and 
direction. For now am going with northerly flow 25 to 30 knots with 
seas 10 to 12 feet Wednesday into Wednesday night as the low 
pressure lifts north of the region. Improving conditions by Thursday 
morning. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...gale watch from Sunday evening through Monday morning for 
amz130-135-150-152-154-156-158.
