NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
126 am EDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will move across the area early this morning. Cool 
high pressure will build over the region today through the 
remainder of the week. A dry cold front will drop through the area 
late Saturday then high pressure returns through early next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am this morning/... 
upper low diving southeast through Virginia early this morning and a few 
showers are grazing northern forecast area in proximity to the 
upper cooling. This will likely continue through the overnight so 
will maintain slight chance probability of precipitation over northern areas. Middle level 
clouds on the periphery of the upper low will continue to 
pinwheel across the area early this morning. 


Cold air advection begins in earnest behind the associated cold front which has 
passed just off the coast. Lows will reach the upper 40s/lower 50s 
inland to the upper 50s and low 60s beaches. 


&& 


Short term /6 am this morning through 6 PM today/... 
as of 300 PM Tuesday...strong model consensus that vertically 
stacked low pressure will move off of the northern middle Atlantic 
Wednesday. Associated wrap around moisture in the form of light 
showers could affect the northern portion of the area. Will carry 
chance probability of precipitation in the afternoon eastern zones as the deepest moisture 
moves into the area but again with lower than normal confidence 
due to the westerly low level flow. Cold advection following the 
front will lead to highs in the middle to upper 60s with 
widespread self destruct stratocumulus with any insolation and 
cold pool aloft. 


&& 


Long term /tonight through Tuesday/... 
as of 345 PM Tuesday...good agreement continues amongst medium range 
model suite so little changes to forecast thinking. The low pressure 
system just off the middle Atlantic coast will be deepening while 
moving away from the area Wednesday night while high pressure ridges down 
from the Great Lakes into the deep south. The gradient between 
these features will lead to continuing gusty winds 30-35 miles per hour for the 
northern Outer Banks Wednesday night. Most of the area will remain dry 
though far northeastern portions of the County Warning Area...mainly the northern 
obx could see scattered rain showers Wednesday evening due to moisture 
wrapping around the strengthening low to the northeast coincident 
with significant lift in place. Ens quantitative precipitation forecast fields amongst naefs/sref 
indicate this scenario as well. 


The sprawling high pressure system to the west will build in Thursday and 
shunt any precipitation well northeast of the area...leading to a dry 
rest of the long term period under northwest flow aloft. A non- 
eventful short wave will swing through on Saturday though will be 
moisture starved and not expecting any precipitation...only a 
reinforcement of the lower humidities. In fact...expecting a large 
diurnal temperature swing for Thursday through early next week due to the 
low dewpoints expected...with highs approaching or exceeding 
climatology by Sunday into Monday...though lows will remain below climatology 
into the 40s away from the beaches. Have hedged overnight lows 
more in line with ecm ensmos for the extended period. 


&& 


Aviation /05z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
short term /through 06z Thu/... 
high confidence for VFR conditions through the period. Middle-level 
clouds will spin about an upper low over Virginia early this 
morning. After sunrise, northwest winds will become gusty to 20-22 kts 
and continue into middle/late afternoon. Also scattered/broken diurnal hi-based 
cumulus/SC will develop with surface heating/upper cooling today. 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of 345 PM Tuesday...predominant VFR conditions expected through 
the long term under mostly sunny skies. High pressure will build 
in from the west through the period with an overall dry airmass 
thus do not expect reductions in visibility or ceilings...although 
cannot completely rule out brief radiation fog or br in low 
spots and river valleys in the early mornings due to large 
water/land temperature contrasts. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Wednesday/... 
cold front hass passed off the coast early this morning. Increasing 
northwest winds and building seas behind the front will lead to Small 
Craft Advisory conditions developing Wednesday morning and 
afternoon across the sounds and the waters north of Cape Lookout. 
Westerly winds to 15 knots early this evening will shift to northwest around 
20 knots late this evening then increase to 25 knots Wednesday. Seas 
will build to 5 to 8 feet Wednesday north of lookout. 


Long term /Wednesday through Saturday/... 
as of 345 PM Tuesday...no changes to Small Craft Advisory headlines except to extend 
the ending time of the northern/central legs through Friday morning. A 
tight northwesterly pressure gradient will develop between a 
strengthening area of low pressure off the Middle- Atlantic States 
and high pressure over the southern U.S. Northwest winds will 
increase 20-30 knots with seas building 6-9 feet for the central and 
northern waters. Could be several hours of gale force gusts for 
the northern waters and eastern sounds Wednesday evening though not 
enough confidence on duration or extent to upgrade headlines at 
this time. The low will slowly move northeast away from the region 
allowing the tightest gradient to shift northeast as well. Winds 
will subside below Small Craft Advisory criteria for the Albemarle 
and Pamlico sounds by midday Thursday. High pressure will shift 
east over the waters Friday but continued northwest flow aloft will allow 
for several dry short wave troughs to continue west to northwest winds over 
the waters through the weekend. Local Swan/nwps continues to run 
a little high so blended previous forecast with latest 
nwps/wavewatch guidance for seas forecast with this forecast 
package.
