NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1044 PM EST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will lift northeast away from the North Carolina 
coast tonight. A weak front will move through the area on Thursday. 
High pressure will build into North Carolina by the end of the 
week and remain through the weekend. A cold front will move 
through the area Monday with high pressure building in Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /overnight/... 
as of 1045 PM Wednesday...low pressure has pushed well northeast of the 
area this evening and will continue to pull away from the area 
overnight. Expect dry conditions overnight with significant 
drying of the column and precipitable waters  dropping to around 0.50". Winds 
have shifted to north/northwest across the region ushering in much cooler 
temperatures with upper 30s inland to lower 40s along the coast. Clearing 
skies and light winds inland should allow for good radiational 
cooling and expect lows in the middle 30s while winds will be a 
little stronger along the coast with lows in the middle 40s. The north/northwest 
winds have brought some minor water level rises along the sound- 
side obx but seem to be peaking around 1 feet above predicted tides. 
With winds expected to remain below gale and diminish some 
overnight coastal flooding issues remain minimal. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday/... 
as of 230 PM Wednesday...a middle level shortwave and associated cold front will 
move across the area on Thanksgiving. NAM soundings indicate 
sufficient moistening of the column up to around 600mb and 
reaching into the dendritic growth zone across the northern tier 
counties. The GFS and European model (ecmwf) soundings are a little drier but the 
European model (ecmwf) does indicate some quantitative precipitation forecast north of Highway 70. Therefore have 
introduced slt chance north of Highway 70 and chance probability of precipitation north of 
Highway 264. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts will be light...generally less than a 
tenth of an inch. Winds back to west to SW in the morning...then 
become northwest during the afternoon behind a weak cold front. Highs 
expected in the low to middle 50s. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 245 PM Wednesday...a middle level wave and associated surface 
low and cold front will be exiting eastern NC early Thursday 
evening. Could see a few light evening showers otherwise skies 
will clear and cold air will again plunge south into the area on 
brisk northerly winds as high pressure begins to build in from the 
north. Lows will range from around 30 inland to the upper 30s 
beaches. Highs on Friday will be in the middle 40s with a chilly 
north wind. Excellent radiational cooling conditions will set up 
Friday night with high pressure overhead. Expect lows in the 
middle 20s inland and lower to middle 30s beaches. 


With an upper ridge building to the south, a dry stretch of weather 
with moderating temperatures is expected from Saturday through early 
next week with the surface high moving offshore and return flow 
strengthening. Highs are forecast to be in the middle and upper 50s 
Saturday, warming into the middle and upper 60s Sunday and Monday. A 
weak backdoor cold front is expected to sink south through the area 
Tuesday and should only drop temperatures back into the upper 50s 
and low 60s Tuesday and Wednesday. Models continue to suggest 
limited moisture with the front so will only mention slight chance 
probability of precipitation Tuesday/Tuesday night. High pressure will then build into the 
area middle next week. 


&& 


Aviation /04z Thursday through Monday/... 
short term /through Thanksgiving/... 
as of 7 PM Wednesday...MVFR ceilings should improve to VFR over the next 
few hours. Forecast soundings indicate a weak surface based 
inversion may develop across eastern NC...effectively allowing 
winds to decouple to light or calm. Very moist surface and lower 
boundary layer combined with light/calm winds would indicate a 
favorable scenario for fog. Some guidance indicates light winds 
will prevail overnight so have not indicated IFR with the 00z taf 
issuance. If any fog does occur...it will likely be after 
06z...allowing the next shift to reassess the fog likelihood. 
Conditions will improve to VFR conditions by middle Thanksgiving 
morning. 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 245 PM Wednesday...expect VFR conditions to dominate as 
surface high pressure moves into the region late in the week and 
passes offshore during the weekend. May see periods of late night 
patchy fog over the weekend. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Thanksgiving/... 
as of 1045 PM Wednesday...latest surface and buoy data indicate northwest winds 
10-20kt with gusts near 25 knots at the Diamond Shoals buoy. Low 
pressure has pushed NE of the waters. Expect winds to continue to 
diminish overnight and back to SW around 5-15 knots by around 12z 
Thursday ahead of another weak front. Winds increase to 15-25 knots by 
late Thursday morning...then shift to northwest behind the front in the 
afternoon. Seas continue around 9-12 feet north of Ocracoke Inlet 
and 4-8 feet south this afternoon but will diminish to around 3-6 feet 
by Thursday morning. Seas build back to 4-7 feet Thursday afternoon with 
the surge. 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 245 PM Wednesday...northwest winds of 20 to 25 knots and seas of 4 to 6 
feet are expected as a secondary surge of cold air pushes through the 
area Thursday night into Friday. Winds will then diminish quickly 
late Friday into Friday night as high pressure moves overhead. Winds shift 
SW and steadily increase to 10 to 15 knots Saturday and 15 to 20 knots 
Sunday as the high pushes offshore. Winds may diminish slightly to 
10 to 15 knots Monday.
