NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1251 PM EST Friday Dec 19 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will build in from the northwest through tonight. Weak 
low pressure will develop to the southeast Saturday and drift 
slowly east on Sunday. Another low will develop near the coast 
Sunday night into Monday then lift to the northeast Monday night. 
A strong cold front will approach from the west Tuesday and cross 
the region Wednesday. High pressure will build to the south of the 
area Christmas day. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
expect mostly sunny skies today as surface high pressure builds in from 
the northwest with some high clouds filtering in during the afternoon in 
the mainly zonal flow aloft. Bumped up maximum temperatures this afternoon a degree 
or two as near full sun low level thicknesses support highs mainly 
in the 50 to 55 degree range from north to south. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Saturday/... 
as of 220 am Friday...surface high pressure will continue to the north through 
tonight as broad/weakening upper trf approaches from the west. Mclr 
skies through the evening will allow temperatures to drop into 30 to 35 dgr 
range most areas...later models show increasing mainly middle/high level 
moisture and expect increasing clouds with temperatures likely leveling 
off. Weak lower level isent lift begins late but too dry for any 
precipitation. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Thursday/... 
as of 3 am Friday...active pattern expected this weekend into next 
week. Weak surface low will move through the northern Gulf/deep south 
region Sat...then move off the southeast coast late Sat and sun. 00z 
guidance continues to keep the surface low weaker and further 
suppressed off the coast...keeping the heavier axis of precipitation just 
south of the area and offshore. Main change to forecast was to 
decrease probability of precipitation slightly across the area given the drier model 
trends the past few days. Best chances across the southern tier 
Sat. Precipitation should taper off Sat evening...with dry weather expected 
most of Sat night and sun. Highs this weekend in the upper 40s to 
middle 50s...and overnight lows in the middle 30s/middle 40s. Another weak 
low is expected to move along the southeast coast Sun night into 
Monday...then up the NC coast by Monday night. Increased probability of precipitation to high 
chance/likely for Sun night into Monday. 


Moisture and dynamics increase Tuesday and Wednesday as strong low pressure 
system approaches from the west. The main low becomes vertically 
stacked over the upper Midwest/Great Lakes region Tuesday 
night/Wed...and models developing a secondary low along the cold 
front and ahead of the upper trough...moving through the 
Carolinas and mid-Atlantic. Will continue mention of thunderstorms Tuesday 
night into early Wednesday...mainly along and east of Highway 17. Expect to see 
a high shear/Low Cape setup as trough becomes negatively 
tilted...with models showing 0-6km shear 40-50kt and increased low 
level helicity values. Instability should decrease quickly behind 
the front late Wednesday morning/early afternoon. Though it remains 
several days out...cannot rule out the potential for a strong thunderstorm 
given the setup and strong dynamics Tuesday night into early Wednesday. 
Gusty winds expected ahead of and behind the front Wednesday with strong 
upper jet over the area. 


Dry and cooler behind the front for Christmas day as upper trough 
moves off the East Coast. Low level thickness values support highs 
in the upper 40s/low 50s with breezy westerly winds. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Friday through Wednesday/... 
short term /through 18z Saturday/... 
high pressure continues to build into the area through this 
evening with mainly clear skies. Middle level clouds will be 
increasing tonight well ahead of a southern stream short wave 
moving through the Gulf Coast region. Cloud ceilings will continue 
to lower as column moistening increases through Saturday morning 
but expect ceilings to remain above VFR levels through at least midday. Any 
light precipitation that may develop after sunrise Saturday should have 
little if any adverse effect on visibility. 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 3 am Friday...pred VFR conditions expected Sat and sun. Though 
could see brief period of sub-VFR Sat with rain chances across the 
southern tier. Best chance for sub-VFR conditions and widespread 
rain will be Sun night into Monday as weak low moves up the southeast 
coast. Sub-VFR ceilings could lingering Monday night into early 
Tuesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
high pressure will continue to build in from the northwest today and become 
centered to the north late tonight. Northwest winds will become north at mainly 
10 to 15 kts this afternoon and continue at that speed through tonight. 
Seas will continue at 1 to 3 feet southern tier...over central and northern waters may 
see some 4 foot seas develop outer portions later today into 
tonight. 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 3 am Friday...weak surface low will move through the deep south 
Sat...then move off the southeast coast Sat night and sun. Latest 
guidance continues to keep the surface low weaker and further 
suppressed off the coast...limiting the impacts across the waters. 
North/NE winds 10-15kt Sat and 10-20kt sun. Wavewatch and local nwps 
in good agreement showing seas 2-4ft. Another weak low pressure 
system is expected to move along the southeast coast Sun night into Monday. 
East/NE winds 10-20kt Sun night becoming more southeast/southerly by Monday 
afternoon. At this time think best chances for Small Craft Advisory conditions will 
be Monday as weak low moves along the NC coast. Could see seas 
build to 6ft on the outer waters with east/southeast wind gusts to 25kt. 
Weak low will continue to lift North/East of the area Tuesday...and expect 
winds 15kt or less and seas 2-4ft.
