Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1019 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will approach from the northwest through Thursday 
and move into the area Friday...then dissipate across the area 
Saturday. Another cold front will approach the area Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 
as of 1015 PM...showers have dissipated across eastern North 
Carolina this evening with loss of heating and lack of upper level 
support. Satellite pictures and observations showing skies have 
cleared. Southwesterly flow over the area. Some showers reformation 
is possible after midnight with low level convergence and weak upper 
level energy moving through the base of the upper trough through 
eastern North Carolina. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday/... 
as of 340 PM Wednesday...the cold front over the Ohio River valley will 
continue to move southeast towards eastern NC Thursday...and will 
help focus showers and thunderstorms Thursday afternoon. Forecast 
soundings indicate precipitable waters  continue above 2 inches Thursday with lifted 
indices -4 to -5 c and SBCAPE values 2000-2500 j/kg. Shear will 
increase slightly Thursday though remain unidirectional west-southwest. Some 
storms could become severe due to moist unstable atmosphere...middle 
level shortwave and location of right-entrance region of upper jet 
just west of the County Warning Area. Biggest threat at this time appears to be 
damaging wind gusts. Do not expect hail to be a major issue with 
freezing levels of 15k feet or higher...though cannot completely 
rule out. Low level thicknesses range 1415-1425 meters yielding 
maximum temperatures in the low 90s inland to middle 80s along the coast/obx. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 230 PM Wednesday...good covering of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain Thursday evening as cold front 
moves into region with upper trf just to the west. A few strong to severe 
storms will be poss early before instability drops. Deeper moisture will 
shift east overnight with precipitation tapering off or poss ending inland. 
Front will stall near CST Friday and gradient washout...deeper moisture 
will be near or east of CST and lowered probability of precipitation to slight chance inland with 
low chance CST. Friday night through early Sunday looks mainly dry as upper trf 
lifts out with zonal flow aloft. Continue isolated pop imd CST Friday night 
and just inland Sat. On Sunday models differ a bit with 12z GFS slower 
to return moisture while 00z European model (ecmwf) brings deeper moisture back 
inland. Lowered probability of precipitation a bit but continue low chance inland Sun afternoon. Highs 
will be mainly in the 80s Friday and Sat with upper trf crossing and 
front washing out. Lower 90s return inland Sunday as low level flow 
GOES SW. 


Another rather deep upper trf and associated cold front will approach 
early next week. Continue chance probability of precipitation Monday and Monday night as front approaches 
and reaches eastern NC. Front will likely stall near CST again by Tuesday 
however atms dries signif and not expecting much precipitation Tuesday or 
Wednesday... with best chances CST early Tuesday. Lower 90s Monday ahead of front 
then temperatures will cool into the 80s Tuesday and Wednesday with front in vicinity 
and lower heights aloft. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Thursday through Monday/... 
short term /through Thursday/... 
as of 651 PM Wednesday...isolated showers still moving through eastern 
North Carolina...but slowly dissipating at this time. Expect these 
showers to dissipate shortly after sunset with loss of heating and 
minimal upper level support. Satellite pictures showing skies 
clearing outside of the blowoff. Forecast soundgings showing some 
3-4k moisture tonight. Also showing surface based saturation inland 
after midnight so have put some light MVFR fog in the tafs for a 
few hours. Any fog that does form will dissipate shortly after 
sunrise. Front moving into area over night and during the day with 
storms forming ahead of it. Front expected to move through the taf 
sites during the late afternoon hours on Thursday with sub VFR 
conditions likely in the associated storms. 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 230 PM Wednesday...good covering of rain showers and thunderstorms and rain Thursday evening with 
occasional reductions in cigs/vsbys. Precipitation will taper off and end later 
Thursday however with light winds may see some fog and St develop. Mainly 
VFR Friday through Sunday with limited if any precipitation...however light winds 
and ample low level moisture Friday night and Sat night could result in 
patchy fog and St with reduced cigs/vsbys. Rain showers and thunderstorms and rain will 
increase in covering later Sun night and Monday as another front approaches 
with some brief periods of reduced flight categories. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Wednesday/... 
as of 1018 PM Wednesday...southwest wind at the surface over the coastal 
waters this evening with seas running 2-4 feet. Speeds 10 to 15 
knots. Southwest flow will continue over the waters through the 
nighttime hours ahead of approaching cold front. Gradient will 
tighten ahead of the front...allowing speeds to pick up to 15 to 20 
knots over night. 


Previous disc...local Swan and wavewatch have been overdone by about one 
foot over the past 24 hours...so adjusted seas slightly to account 
for this though once frequent gusts to 20 knots overspreads the 
central/southern coastal waters...expect 4-5 feet seas for the outer 
fringes of the coastal zones. The Bermuda high will remain offshore 
with a Piedmont trough inland through the period. A cold front will 
continue to approach from the northwest overnight into Thursday. SW 
winds will generally range 10-20 knots this evening and overnight as 
the surface pressure gradient tightens. Seas around 2-4 feet this 
evening will build to 3-5 feet across the southern and central waters 
tonight under increased SW flow. 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/ 
as of 230 PM Wednesday...front will drift to the CST Thursday night then 
stall and washout Friday and Friday night. SW winds mainly 10 to 15 kts 
Thursday evening will diminish and become variable through Friday night. SW 
winds will return Sat and increase to 10 to 15 kts late. The SW 
winds will continue to gradient increase sun and Monday as cold front 
approaches with speeds 15 to 20 kts Sun afternoon and 20 to 25 kts later 
Sun night and Monday. 


Seas of 3 to 5 feet Thursday evening will subside to 2 to 4 feet Friday morning 
and 2 to 3 feet by Friday afternoon. Seas will continue in the 2 to 3 foot range 
through Sat. Seas will build sun as winds increase with 4 to 6 feet by 
afternoon. Seas will peak at 5 to 7 feet Monday.
