NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
954 PM EST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
cold high pressure will build in from the northwest through 
Saturday then gradually slide offshore Sunday. A cold front will 
approach from the west Sunday night and cross the area early Monday. 
High pressure will build north of the region Monday night through 
Wednesday. Low pressure may move up the southeast coast Thursday 
and move away from the region Friday. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 
as of 930 PM Friday...a sharp trough continues to move offshore 
with strong cold air advection as high pressure builds into the region. With 
the exiting trough and approaching high...the tight gradient is 
making conditions breezy across the region...especially closer to 
the water. This mixing will inhibit temperatures from dropping to their 
potential as dew point values are in the teens. Given this...have 
bumped up low temperatures a degree or two...around middle 20s inland to 
around 30 along the beaches. Northwest wind between 5-10kts with higher 
gusts closer to the coast. Clear skies will continue overnight. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Saturday morning through 6 PM Saturday/... 
as of 225 PM Friday...high pressure will build toward the coast 
Saturday with much less wind over the area. Atms is very dry and 
expect clear skies through middle day and then will likely see some 
increasing high clouds late. Low level thicknesses will begin to 
increase a bit in the afternoon and when combined with mostly sunny skies 
will lead to highs in the 45 to 50 dgr range most areas...with 
around 40 for NE CST. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Friday/... 
as of 3 PM Friday...long term pattern will feature a roller 
coaster temperature regime with several low pressure systems passing 
through the area. 


A surface ridge of high pressure will shift off the southeast 
coast Saturday night. Min temperatures Saturday night will represent a 
non- diurnal trend as flow backs west and west- southwest with the 
surface ridge moving off the coast...allowing moderate warm air 
advection aloft and increasing cloud cover to develop. Lows in the 
20s prior to midnight before a leveling off and beginning a 
warming trend prior to sunrise. 


For Sunday...high pressure off the coast and low pressure developing 
across the Ohio River valley will lead to increasing southwesterly 
flow across eastern NC and increasing thicknesses yielding maximum 
temperatures near normal despite the mostly cloudy skies. 


Agreement amongst models has improved further for the Sunday 
night into Monday low pressure system and cold front. A strong 
shortwave will swing through the Central Plains states Sunday 
night with surface low development along the eastern Ohio River 
valley...with a strengthening low moving through northern Virginia/MD/de 
Monday morning. SW winds will strengthen overnight as 850mb SW jet 
increase to 60+ knots by early Monday morning. Another non-diurnal temperature curve 
with lows in the low 50s realized early in the evening before 
rising to the middle/upper 50s prior to sunrise. Increasing rain 
chances through the night as frontogenesis and large scale lift 
increase through the night. Rainfall amounts will range one to 
three tenths of an inch as almost no instability will be present 
and the system will be fast moving with main dynamics remaining to 
the north of the area. Rain will end by Monday afternoon as 
system exits off the coast. Highs in the middle/upper 50s realized early 
in the day before another strong surge of cold air moves into the 
region with gusty northwest winds developing by the afternoon and temperatures 
falling through the 40s. Could be a snow shower or two across the 
NE potions of the forecast area early Monday evening before precipitation completely 
ends though no impacts. 


The upper shortwave will cross eastern NC Monday evening with surge 
of gusty northwest winds ushering cold temperatures Monday night. Lows in the low 
20s (near 30 obx) will combine with the northwest winds to produce wind 
chills in the teens prior to daybreak Tuesday. Low level thicknesses 
fall to around 1280-1290 meters Tuesday as high pressure noses 
south over the region from the Middle- Atlantic States. Expect highs 
in the upper 30s north to middle 40s south on Tuesday. The high 
shifts off the middle-Atlantic coast Tuesday night into Wednesday 
allowing a weak warm air advection trend to develop. 


30/12z model suite continues to diverge significantly middle to late 
week in handling of synoptic pattern. The deterministic GFS/Gem 
continue to develop a low pressure area over the gom Wednesday and move it 
northeast up the Carolina coast Wednesday into Thursday. However a glance at 
the gfsens mean indicates very large spread with respect to mslp 
during this time frame owing to low confidence on this solution. European model (ecmwf) 
has no Gulf low and a deeper Arctic trough over the area into Thursday 
with low pressure developing a few hundred miles off the NC coast. Given 
continued differences amongst models have continued probability of precipitation in the 
low chance range middle week. With Arctic air mass lurking just to the 
west and north will have to monitor trends for potential wintry 
weather...though no mention in grids at this long range and only 
enough of a threat to mention it to mom. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
short term /through 00z Sunday/... 
as of 630 PM Friday...high confidence in VFR sky clear for taf sites 
through period. Cold air advection scu will affect NE portions of area early this 
evening...then clear skies will dominate rest of period with strong 
high pressure building in from northwest. Gusty northwest winds early this evening 
will diminish overnight...and gradually back to west Sat afternoon. 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 3 PM Friday...next chance of precipitation arrives Sun night 
with sub-VFR conditions Sunday night into Monday associated with 
a cold front passage. Winds become gusty from the west and then northwest 
Monday afternoon into early Monday evening behind frontal passage. High 
pressure builds back over the region Monday night into Wednesday 
with a return to VFR. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /tonight and Sat/... 
as of 930 PM Friday...as predicted there has been an increase in northwest 
winds across northern portions of the obx. This is in response to 
a secondary surge of cold air advection as seen well upstream of the region. 
Based on observation near the Chesapeake Bay area we anticipate gusts of 
30-40kts and this will eventually translate south...although 
perhaps not as strong. Thus will continue Gale Warning most of 
area with Small Craft Advisory alb sound and rivers. Winds across the southern 
waters may need to be tweaked down a bit based on current 
observation...but holding off watching the trend of the current surge. Seas 
are generally 6 to 8 feet. 


Previous discussion...gales are looking marginal for southern tier and 
poss Pamlico Sound. Blended wavewatch and Swan for seas as Swan 
tends to be too high with northwest wind events...still shld see 8 to 10 
feet far outer central and northern waters. The high will build toward the 
coast Saturday with winds diminishing to less than 15 kts during 
the afternoon. Seas will be slow to subside and likely remain near 6 feet 
far outer central and northern waters through the day. 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 3 PM Friday...generally poor boating conditions expected in 
the long term with several strong frontal systems passing through 
the waters. Surface ridge will shift east well south of the waters 
Saturday night into Sunday...shifting winds west late Saturday and 
eventually southwesterly by Sunday. Southwest winds and building seas 
expected Sunday night into Monday ahead of a developing frontal 
system...which should cross the eastern NC coastal waters Monday 
afternoon. SW winds increase to Small Craft Advisory levels...possibly gales in the 
outer central/southern waters Monday afternoon...before switching to 
northwest by Monday evening. Gales look probably Monday evening for all the 
waters and potentially eastern portions of the sounds as 
strengthening low pressure to the north pulls down strong cold air 
advection. Winds diminish through Tuesday afternoon though seas 
are expected to remain elevated at Small Craft Advisory levels through much of 
Tuesday especially northern/central legs. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
the gusty northwest winds overnight will result 
in lower than normal water levels for western Pamlico Sound and adjacent 
rivers and above normal water on sound side of obx. At this time 
appears water level changes will be on the order of 1 to 2 feet 
and will not issue any advisories...but will monitor closely.
