NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1000 am EDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will ridge into the region today through Friday. A 
strong cold front will push through the area Friday night through 
early Saturday morning. High pressure will build south of the area 
Sunday and Monday. 


&& 


Near term /rest of today/... 
as of 10 am Wednesday...low stratus and fog mixing out at this hour and 
will be replaced by a scattered 2k feet strato cumulus deck by late morning 
through afternoon with onset of daytime heating. A weak backdoor 
cold front will approach from the north today but washout as it 
drops across eastern NC. An upper low over the middle- Atlantic will 
move east through southern New England today yielding west-northwest flow 
aloft. Maximum temperatures will be a few degrees above climatology for early 
October...with highs in the 81-83 f range inland to 73-76 f across 
the obx. 


&& 


Short term /tonight/... 
as of 315 am Wednesday...ridging aloft will build over the Carolinas 
tonight while a weak surface ridge becomes centered over eastern 
NC. Forecast soundings and persistence would suggest another round 
of patchy fog as skies clear and winds decouple inland allowing 
for good radiational cooling. Will monitor for persistence and may 
add patchy/areas of fog after midnight with 4 am forecast package. 
Lows tonight will be similar to this morning with inland sites 
falling into the upper 50s to lower 60s and coastal sites in the 
middle 60s. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Tuesday/... 
as of 325 am Wednesday...broad high pressure will control the 
weather on Thursday with warm temperatures in the upper 70s to low 
80s. Strong cold front still on track to approach the area from 
the west Friday. Latest runs of both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) have slowed 
the front just a bit...delaying the arrival of precipitation into 
late Friday evening/night with showers and a few storms lingering 
near the coast through about midday Saturday. Have made this 
adjustment to slightly slow down the system and think Friday will 
remain largely dry with likely probability of precipitation Friday night/early Saturday. 
Instability will be limited with no severe potential expected and 
just a few rumbles of thunder to accompany the front. Much cooler 
and drier air will surge in behind the front with lows both Sunday 
and Monday morning likely to drop into the upper 40s well inland 
with 50s over most other areas with lower 60s along the Outer 
Banks. A strong middle-level shortwave will dig into the mean trough 
causing it to dive further south and lead to a few showers on 
Tuesday as temperatures remain close to seasonal normals. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 720 am Wednesday...fog and low stratus have persisted across area 
tafs this morning but will mix out between 12-13z this morning. 
Light NE/east winds expected today. Forecast soundings indicate 
scattered clouds 2500-5000 feet possible this afternoon with no 
impact on aviation. Another round of reduced visibilities in fog 
and low stratus will be possible again tonight. 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 330 am Wednesday...expect VFR conditions Thursday and Friday 
under the influence of high pressure. A strong front moves across 
the region Friday night into Saturday and expect a threat of 
showers and a few thunderstorms with reductions in ceiling and visibility 
through about midday Saturday. Cool dry air overtakes the area 
Saturday night through early next week with VFR conditions 
expected. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 715 am Wednesday...latest surface and buoy data indicate north-northeast winds 
10-15 knots with some gusts near 20 knots for the outer waters. 
Seas range 3-4 feet for the northern waters and 2-3 feet south. Low 
pressure several hundred miles off the Carolina coast will 
continue to move out to sea this morning. A weak backdoor front 
will approach from the north today but washout as it nears the 
eastern NC waters...with no real impact on winds. Seas will range 
3-5 feet for the outer central waters and the northern waters due 
to longer north/north-northeast fetch. Local Swan/nwps is about a foot higher than 
latest wavewatch...but will stick with Swan as it generally 
outperforms wavewatch guidance in NE flow situations. 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 330 am Wednesday...northerly winds at 10 to 15 knots will 
veer to S/SW ahead of strong cold front Friday evening and 
night...before becoming northwest behind the front Saturday afternoon. 
Seas may briefly reach 6 to 7 feet Friday night and Saturday just 
ahead and behind the front. West/northwest winds of 15 to 20 knots are 
likely to linger through most of the weekend...but the offshore 
component of the wind should allow seas to subside to 3 to 5 feet 
by Saturday night and Sunday.

Marine...none.
