NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
718 PM EDT Tuesday Jun 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
a typical Summer time pattern is expected for the rest of the 
week with high pressure offshore and a trough of low pressure to 
the west. A frontal boundary will sag into the area late week and 
linger near eastern North Carolina through the weekend. High 
pressure will build over inland areas by late next weekend through 
early next week. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 
as of 700 PM Tuesday...strong thunderstorms have fused into a line 
crossing central NC and eastern SC. Some discrete cells moving 
north of the area. Remarkably...nothing has formed across our 
County Warning Area. The instability and dynamics seems to be quite a bit less 
than to our west. Feel that with loss of heating this line of 
thunderstorms will diminish in intensity as it approaches eastern 
NC. However...with upper level impulses crossing the area later 
this evening we can not rule out thunderstorm activity across the 
western most counties. We expect this activity to erode as it 
moves eastward. Otherwise...the forecast is on track with temperatures 
still in the middle 80s across much of the area and slowly falling. 


Previous discussion...short wave energy pivoting through the long 
wave extending south from the Great Lakes to the western Gulf of 
Mexico will set off shower and thunderstorms over the southeast 
states late this afternoon and evening. It will likely take a 
while for the showers and storms to reach eastern NC with weak 
subsidence in place and expect the convection will be weakening as 
favorable diurnal cycle wanes. However a few storms may be strong 
to severe this evening given decent shear, especially inland of 
the coast. Lingering showers/thunderstorms overnight will be weakening 
as they reach the coast later tonight. Lows tonight low to middle 70s 
inland/upper 70s coast. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday/... 
as of 315 PM Tuesday...expect subsidence in the wake of the early 
morning short wave passage to suppress most convection until late 
in the day. Some isolated activity along the inland moving 
seabreeze cant totally be ruled out Wednesday afternoon so will keep a slight 
chance pop, although most areas will be warm and dry. Highs mainly 
lows 90s with upper 80s at the beaches. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Tuesday/... 
as of 315 PM Tuesday...unsettled pattern through the long term. Broad 
upper trough sharpens at times as numerous short waves move through 
the flow. Forecast area will be in between axis of Bermuda high to 
the south and frontal boundary in the vicinity of the NC/Virginia 
border. Scattered to likely probability of precipitation each day through Sunday. The 
front will begin to lift back north early next week so only chance 
probability of precipitation throughout. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
short term /through 00z Thursday/... 
as of 700 PM Tuesday...outside any evening/overnight shower/tstorm 
activity over any given terminal, high confidence in mainly VFR 
conditions though the taf period. Short wave moving through the 
region has sparked a line of showers and thunderstorms crossing 
central NC. Coverage of precipitation (and subsequent chances for 
tempo sub- VFR conditions) is somewhat questionable given the 
unfavorable diurnal cycle tending to weaken convection as it 
approaches eastern NC. Will have just vcsh for this taf cycle 
until better timing and/or coverage of possible lower ceilings and 
visibilities associated with showers/thunderstorms can be resolved. Winds from the 
south will be gusty through the evening hours ahead and just 
behind the shortwave activity. Expect little in the way of pure 
fog late tonight given expected cloud cover via convective debris 
and light stirring of the boundary layer via surface wind. Some patchy 
fog could develop where any heavier rain might fall overnight. With 
subsidence on the backside of this shortwave...expect clouds to 
erode through Wednesday morning. 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/ 
as of 315 PM Tuesday...scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms 
through the period with locally lower ceilings/visibilities at all 4 
terminals. Southwest flow through the period generally 10-15 knots 
by day and less than 10 knots at night. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Wednesday/... 
as of 700 PM Tuesday...no sig changes to the forecast with seas 2 to 4 
feet with south winds 10-20kts. Wind and seas should begin to 
increase over the next couple hours. 


Previous discussion...SW winds continue to increase this 
afternoon with speeds reaching 15 to 20 kts late as surface trough 
strengthens to the west. Gradient will remain fairly tight over the 
region tonight with continue SW winds 15 to 20 kts...poss some gusts 
to 25 knots during evening. These increasing winds will lead to seas 
building to 3 to 5 feet with 4 to 6 foot seas expected to develop 
central waters tonight and continue Small Craft Advisory from lookout to Oregon Inlet through 
Wednesday. 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of 315 PM Tuesday...southwest flow will be the rule through the 
long term. Models continue to show frontal boundary lingering in 
the vicinity of the Virginia/NC border with the axis of the Bermuda high 
to the south. Winds will remain below small craft levels...but 
wave models continue to show 4-6 foot seas into the weekend for 
the waters from Oregon Inlet to Cape Lookout. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory from 10 PM this evening to 8 PM EDT 
Sunday for amz152-154. 
Small Craft Advisory from 10 PM this evening to 8 am EDT 
Sunday for amz156.
