NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
136 PM EDT Friday Apr 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure extending down the eastern Seaboard will weaken and 
move northeast today. Low pressure will develop in the Gulf of Mexico 
today and move off the southeast coast Saturday night. It will 
continue to slowly move northeast early next week. A cold front 
will move through Tuesday night. High pressure will build in 
Wednesday and Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 1245 PM Friday...forecast in good shape. No changes made. 


High pressure ridging down from the northeast will to weakening 
as the low pressure system in the Gulf Mexico continues to develop 
today. Isentropic lift will continue to increase as the low 
pressure system moves east northeast. Clouds from the associated low 
pressure will continue to spread north. Can expect a slight chance 
of light rain this afternoon for the southernmost counties and 
adjacent coastal waters. Expect highs in the low 60s inland and 
upper 50s Outer Banks. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Saturday/... 
the deep trough associated with the development of the low will 
become vertically stacked. Enhancing the spread of rain into our 
area. Rain amounts ranging 0.75 to 1.25 inches overnight. Temperatures 
will cool into the upper 40s inland to low to middle 50s along the coast. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Friday/... 
as of 245 am Friday...deep trough moving through the Gulf Coast region 
will cut off then move through the deep south and off the southeast coast. 
This will set up a mainly cloudy and wet pattern over the forecast 
area for much of the upcoming weekend as surface low tracks east-northeast to the 
S. 


Widespread rain expected Sat and have raised probability of precipitation to categorical 
most areas with likely northern tier. Best covering will be in morning with 
activity diminishing a bit late espcly inland. Clouds...precipitation and 
NE flow will keep temperatures below normal with highs mainly 60 to 65. The 
low will be moving slowly and this will keep plenty of moisture 
over the region through Sunday. Looks like there will be a sharp 
cutoff to the precipitation across the north and northwest tier Sat night and 
Sunday...for now have chance to good chance CST tapering to slight chance 
or no chance deep inland Sunday. Have temperatures on Sunday ranging from 
low/middle 60s CST where will remain cloudy to upper 60s inland. 


Model agree for clearing skies and temperatures at more 
seasonable levels early next week. Milder low level SW flow will 
increase ahead of an upper trough approaching from the northwest Tuesday. 
The European model (ecmwf) now shows more precipitation with the frontal passage late Tuesday and Tuesday 
night however for now will cap probability of precipitation at slight chance until model 
trends become more consistent. Dry in wake of front middle week with 
temperatures a bit cooler Wednesday as upper trf crosses. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Friday through Wednesday/... 
short term /through 18z Saturday/ 
as of 115 PM Friday...VFR conditions to start with IFR criteria 
likely at all taf sites by the end of the period. A potent low 
pressure system in the gom will shift NE...off the Florida/Georgia coast by 
Saturday. This will shift the rain shield currently along the Gulf 
Coast states northward into our region by Saturday morning. In 
response...expect ceilings to increase and lower through the next 
12 hours with winds remaining elevated from the NE. Feel the 
transition from VFR to IFR will occur between 06-12z tonight with 
certain locations possibly dropping to LIFR for brief periods of 
time. Hard to narrow when and where this will occur...so left it 
out of the tafs for now. Rain will continue through much of 
Saturday with ceilings holding steady. 


Long term /Sat through Tuesday/... 
as of 245 am Friday...widespread rain Sat with reduced flight 
categories likely in IFR range most of the day. Lower clouds and 
precipitation will continue along the CST through Sunday with continue reduced 
flight categories...over the inland sites will see some gradient 
drying Sunday with improving ceilings and visibilities late. Mainly VFR 
expect Monday however will still be some low level moisture near CST 
with potential for some lingering sub VFR conditions. SW flow 
develops Tuesday ahead of cold front with VFR expected with limited 
precipitation chances through the day. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /today and tonight/ 
as of 1245 PM Friday...forecast in good shape. No changes. 


High pressure ridging down from the northeast will to weaken as 
the low pressure system in the Gulf Mexico continues to develop 
today. Persist NE flow at 15 to 20 knots. Wave models remain in 
good agreement with seas slowly subsiding...but will remain in Small Craft Advisory 
criteria. Seas are expected to subside 6 to 7 feet by this evening. 


Long term /Sat through Tuesday/... as of 245 am 
Friday...poor boating conditions through Monday. Low pressure will move off 
the CST to our south Sat then slowly lift east-northeast through Monday. Combo of 
the low to the S and high pressure to the north will keep gradient tight 
along the CST espcly late Sat through sun with NE winds of 20 to 30 
kts expected...could flirt with gales at times outer central waters. 
As the low drifts slowly east and the high weakens winds will gradient 
subside Monday and become light Monday night as the weak high crosses. 
Winds will gradient become SW 10 to 15 kts Tuesday ahead of next cold 
front. The gusty NE winds will lead to seas of 8 to 12 feet over the 
outer waters later Sat through Sun night. Seas will slowly subside 
Monday and Monday night with Small Craft Advisory finally ending all waters by 12z 
Tuesday. Seas will linger in the 3 to 5 feet range Tuesday. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
as of 230 am Friday...may have high surf conditions develop late Sat 
through Sunday as the increasing and persistent NE flow builds large 
seas. This would be mainly for the Outer Banks from Hatteras 
north. The persistent pounding waves could lead to localized 
overwash during high tide cycles. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 8 PM EDT this evening for amz135. 
Small Craft Advisory until 7 am EDT Tuesday for amz150-152-154. 
Small Craft Advisory until 5 am EDT Tuesday for amz156.
