NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1054 am EDT Friday Sep 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
a weak cold front will move through the region today...with high 
pressure building into the area from the north through the middle 
of next week. A weak low pressure area will meander off the 
southeast coast this weekend through early next week. A cold front 
will approach the area late next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 1050 am Friday...little change with the morning update. Morning 
fog has burned off and expect isolate to scattered convection this 
afternoon with best chances along and west of Highway 17. 


Latest surface analysis shows weak front draped through the Middle- 
Atlantic States and lingering surface trough across the area. The 
front will continue to sink south pushing through the region 
today...with increasing NE flow behind it. Frontal forcing 
combined with moderate instability should allow for scattered 
showers and thunderstorms to develop across the region during peak 
heating. Temperatures similar to the past few days...low level thickness 
values support highs in the middle/upper 80s along the coast to lower 
90s inland. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Saturday/... 
as of 650 am Friday...high pressure will gradually build in from the 
north tonight. Expect convection to wane with loss of heating this 
evening. Will maintain SC pop overnight...though better moisture 
axis will remain just west of the forecast area. Models showing 
increasing low stratus moving into the area from the north late 
tonight into early Sat morning with moist low level north-northeast flow. At 
this time think there will be enough mixing to inhibit fog 
development. Overnight lows in the middle/upper 60s inland to low 
70s along the coast with low level north-northeast flow. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Thursday/... 
as of 300 am Friday...00z GFS and European model (ecmwf) are in decent agreement 
during period...but still below normal confidence on precipitation 
timing and location. Only change with this issuance was to 
increase probability of precipitation to 40% coastal sections Sat night. 


Sat through Monday...models remain in agreement with a multi 
layered ridge to the north of the area and a broad upper low over 
the western Atlantic and southeast states. At the surface moderate 
high pressure will build south into the Carolinas while weak low 
pressure (the remnants of erika?) Will meander off the southeast 
coast producing a cyclonic and moist onshore easterly flow with precipitable water 
values at or above 1.75" suggesting the potential for locally heavy 
downpours at times. Model quantitative precipitation forecast forecasts generally indicate precipitation 
likely along coast each period...with coverage more scattered inland. 
Forecast confidence still not high enough to indicate probability of precipitation more 
than 40% at this time. 


Tuesday through Thursday...latest guidance supports previous forecast 
with gradual return to more typical offshore high/inland trough 
pattern. Upper pattern will see upper low retreating to the Gulf 
Coast and filling and western Atlantic ridging leading to a zonal 
flow across the eastern US. The weak surface low will meander off 
of the coast then eventually dissipate. A drier airmass will try 
to filter into the area but there will be sufficient moisture to 
support low chances of precipitation...mainly for the afternoon and 
evening hours. Temperatures will be forecast at or above normal 
especially later in the period. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Friday through Tuesday/... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 1050 am Friday...pred VFR today. Scattered afternoon 
showers/storms expected with periods of sub-VFR possible. Weak 
boundary will move through today...with veering winds becoming NE 
this afternoon. Models show increasing low stratus moving into the 
area from the north late tonight into early Sat morning with moist 
low level north-northeast flow. At this time think there will be enough mixing 
to inhibit fog development. Will keep MVFR ceilings at this 
time...though could be IFR. 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 300 am Friday...periods of sub VFR conditions will occur in 
areas of showers and thunderstorms and in early morning fog and 
stratus especially Saturday night into Monday. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 650 am Friday...latest observation show west/northwest winds 5-10kt and seas 
1-2ft. A weak front will move through the waters today...with 
increasing NE flow 10-15kt behind it. High pressure will build in 
from the north tonight...resulting in moderate NE flow 10-20kt. 
Seas 1-2ft early today...building to 2-4ft tonight highest north 
of Ocracoke. 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 300 am Friday...adjusted forecast with blend of GFS and 
European model (ecmwf)...indicating slightly stronger NE winds Sat-Sun night with 
high pressure building in from north...but still mainly 10-20 knots. Weak low 
pressure is forecast to meander over the western Atlantic waters 
late in the weekend into early next week producing a weaker 
gradient over the waters 15 knots or less Monday and Tuesday. Weak 
southerly flow could develop over the waters Tuesday as the 
coastal low departs or dissipates...but forecast confidence low due to 
model differences. The moderate Post frontal flow Saturday into 
Sunday will produce steep 3 to 5 feet seas with some marginal 
advisory level seas of 4 to 6 feet possible mainly over the northern 
waters.
