NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILMINGTON NC
634 PM EST SAT FEB 28 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
A FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR PORTIONS OF THE AREA
LATE TONIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING. HIGH PRESSURE WILL WEDGE DOWN
THE COAST INTO SUNDAY. A DEVELOPING COASTAL TROUGH WILL LINGER
INTO MUCH OF SUNDAY...LIFTING OUT SUNDAY NIGHT. COLD TEMPERATURES
SUNDAY WILL TURN MILDER MONDAY AND TUESDAY AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT.
A WARM FRONT WEDNESDAY WILL BRING TEMPERATURES WELL ABOVE NORMAL.
A COLD FRONT WILL CROSS THE AREA THURSDAY...FOLLOWED BY DRY AND
COLD HIGH PRESSURE LATE WEEK INTO NEXT SATURDAY.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/...
AS OF 634 PM SATURDAY...NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO THE FORECAST
WITH THE EARLY EVENING UPDATE. THE FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY REMAINS
INTACT FOR PORTIONS OF INLAND SE NC AND NE SC. LATEST SURFACE OBS
SHOW TEMPERATURES HAVE DROPPED INTO THE UPPER 30S ACCOMPANIED BY
DEWPOINT DEPRESSIONS OF 20 DEGREES ACROSS PARTS OF CENTRAL AND
EASTERN NC WHERE PARTIALLY CLEAR SKIES WERE ALLOWING FOR VERY GOOD
RADIATIONAL COOLING EARLY THIS EVENING. DEWPOINT DEPRESSIONS OF
SIMILAR MAGNITUDE WERE NOTED ACROSS NE SC ALSO ALTHOUGH MAINLY
LOWER 40 AIR TEMPERATURES AT THE MOMENT. OVERALL THIS SUGGESTS
EFFICIENT WEDGE BULB COOLING EFFECTS REMAIN QUITE POSSIBLE. ALSO
IT APPEARS THE COASTAL TROUGH AMPLIFICATION OFFSHORE COULD SUPPLY
A CONTINUED FEED OF COOL DRY AIR INTO THE REGION AS THE SURFACE
HIGH PRESSURE WEDGE IS SHARPENED...THUS AIDING THE -FZRA THREAT.
THE PREVIOUS AFTERNOON DISCUSSION FOLLOWS.

NORTHERLY FLOW WILL PUSH PLENTY OF COLD DRY AIR INTO THE AREA.
ABOVE THE LOW LEVEL NORTH TO NORTHEAST FLOW MOIST SOUTH TO
SOUTHWEST FLOW WILL BE PRESENT. SOUTHERLY FLOW AND ISENTROPIC LIFT
AROUND 300-305K WILL BE INCREASING OVERNIGHT AS 850MB RIDGE MOVES
FARTHER OFFSHORE. THE SURFACE LAYER WILL TAKE A SOME TIME TO
MOISTEN UP BUT PRECIP WILL SLOWLY SPREAD FROM SOUTH TO NORTH
OVERNIGHT.

THE GOOD NEWS IS GIVEN THE RELATIVELY LIGHT NATURE OF THE PRECIP IT 
IS LIKELY TO TAKE QUITE SOME TIME BEFORE PRECIP STARTS REACHING THE 
SURFACE. THE BAD NEWS IS THAT THE COLD/DRY NATURE OF THE AIR MASS 
WILL ALLOW FOR EVAPORATIONAL COOLING. A GOOD PORTION OF THE 
AREA...MAINLY THOSE WEST OF I-95...IS LIKELY TO BE AT OR BELOW 
FREEZING WHEN THE RAIN FINALLY DOES REACH THE SURFACE. GROUND 
TEMPERATURES ARE LIKELY TO KEEP ROADWAYS FROM FREEZING BUT ELEVATED 
SURFACES...INCLUDING BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES...WILL BE SUSCEPTIBLE TO 
GLAZING. TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL BE LIGHT...ONLY A FEW 
HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH...WITH ICE ACCUMULATIONS THROUGH 12Z BETWEEN A 
TRACE AND A HUNDREDTH OF AN INCH. BASED ON THE EXPECTATION OF 
FREEZING RAIN HAVE ISSUED A FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY FOR SEVERAL 
INLAND COUNTIES. CLOSER TO THE COAST TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN ABOVE 
FREEZING SO LIGHT RAIN IS ALL THAT IS EXPECTED...WITH THE NC COAST 
LIKELY TO REMAIN DRY THROUGH THE END OF THE PERIOD.

&&

.SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT/...
AS OF 300 PM SATURDAY...A WEDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL STILL BE IN
PLACE SUNDAY MORNING. AS WARMER AND MORE MOIST AIR RIDES ACROSS
THE TOP OF THIS COLD AND DENSE LAYER...WE EXPECT PRECIPITATION TO
BE BREAKING OUT FROM SOUTH TO NORTH. WHERE TEMPS ARE AT OR BELOW
FREEZING IS WHERE WE EXPECT SOME LIGHT ICE ACCRUAL WHICH INCLUDES
ALL OR A PORTION OF FLORENCE...MARION...DARLINGTON...MARLBORO...
DILLON...ROBESON...COLUMBUS AND BLADEN COUNTIES. IN THIS AREA WE
EXPECT ICE TO ACCRETE FROM A TRACE TO A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH.
THE ICING SHOULD COME TO AN END DURING SUN MORNING AS TEMPS RISE
ABOVE FREEZING...LASTLY FROM LUMBERTON TO ELIZABETHTOWN NORTHWARD.

THE PRECIPITATION SHOULD BE MORE PREVALENT SUNDAY MORNING ACROSS
INLAND AREAS WHERE THE ISENTROPIC UPGLIDE WILL BE STRONGEST. ALONG
THE COAST...A COASTAL TROUGH WILL ATTEMPT TO MIGRATE TO THE COAST
DURING SUN. WILL INCLUDE SMALLER POPS AS YOU PROGRESS EASTWARD TO
THE COAST. TEMPS WILL GENERALLY BE ABOVE FREEZING BY THE TIME
PRECIPITATION DEVELOPS ALONG THE COAST. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT
PORTIONS OF INLAND PENDER COUNTY AND POSSIBLY FAR INLAND HORRY
COUNTY COULD EXPERIENCE A BRIEF PERIOD OF SPOTTY FREEZING
RAIN...BUT CONFIDENCE IS NOT HIGH ENOUGH TO INCLUDE IN AN ADVISORY
AT THIS TIME.

FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE DAY ON SUN AND INTO SUN EVE...THE WEDGE
WILL BE LOSING ITS INFLUENCE...WHILE THE COASTAL TROUGH WILL BE
SLOW TO LIFT OUT...WILL CARRY LIKELY TO CATEGORICAL POPS. DO
EXPECT THE PRECIPITATION TO CUT OFF SUN EVE AND OVERNIGHT FROM
INLAND TO THE COAST AS FORCING WANES. MOISTURE BECOMES RATHER
SCARCE IN DEEPENING WESTERLY FLOW AHEAD OF APPROACHING COLD FRONT.
AT THIS TIME...HAVE NOT INCLUDED ANY SHOWERS FOR MON...BUT DID
KEEP SMALL POPS IN FOR MON EVE/NIGHT.

HIGHS SUN WILL BE IN THE UPPER 30S TO LOWER 40S INLAND WITH UPPER
40S AND LOWER 50S MOST COMMON AT THE COAST. LOWS SUN NIGHT WILL
REMAIN ABOVE FREEZING. WARM AIR ADVECTION AND PERHAPS SOME MODEST
SUNSHINE ON MON WILL ALLOW FOR THE WARMEST DAY ACROSS THE EASTERN
CAROLINAS SINCE FEB 22...UPPER 50S TO LOWER 60S. WEAK COLD AIR
ADVECTION MON NIGHT WILL ALLOW TEMPS TO DROP TO THE UPPER 30S AND
LOWER 40S.

&&

.LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
AS OF 300 PM SATURDAY...HIGH PRESSURE TO THE NORTH WILL MAKE ITS WAY 
OFF SHORE THROUGH TUES WITH WEDGE INLAND AND COASTAL TROUGH EVIDENT 
ALONG THE COAST. THE WINDS WILL BECOME INCREASINGLY ON SHORE THROUGH 
THE DAY AND EVENTUALLY SOUTHERLY AS LOW PRESSURE MOVING UP OVER THE 
GREAT LAKES PULLS A WARM FRONT/COASTAL TROUGH NORTH. PCP WILL BE 
MORE CONVECTIVE ALONG AND EAST OF COASTAL TROUGH BUT INLAND WILL 
REMAIN MORE STRATIFORM RAIN WITH BETTER ISENTROPIC LIFT PRESENT. THE 
BEST MOISTURE AND LIFT WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL REMAIN WELL WEST AND 
NORTH OF LOCAL FORECAST AREA BUT STILL COUNTING ON CLOUDS AND LOW 
END PCP AS WARM FRONT LIFTS NORTH. TEMP GRADIENT MAY BECOME QUITE 
STEEP WITH INLAND AREAS REMAINING IN THE COOL WEDGE WHILE WARMER 
TEMPS MOVE UP FROM THE SOUTH AND ADVECT IN ALONG THE COAST BUT FOR 
NOW WILL KEEP WEDGE HOLDING THROUGH MOST OF AREA WITH COOLER TEMPS 
MOST OF THE DAY. 

ONCE WARM FRONT BLOWS NORTH DEEP WAA WILL KEEP TEMPS FROM DROPPING 
MUCH AT ALL OVERNIGHT. SHOULD SEE LOWS EARLY ON AND RISING TEMPS 
TOWARD MORNING. A RIDGE WILL BUILD UP FROM THE GULF AS TROUGH 
DEEPENS DOWNSTREAM OVER THE MID WEST THROUGH TUES. THIS SHOULD HELP 
TO INCREASE SUBSIDENCE AND PRODUCE HEIGHT RISES OVER THE SOUTHEAST. 
GFS SHOWS 850 TEMPS RISING FROM 5C TUES MORNING UP CLOSE TO 13C BY 
WED AFTN. OVERALL EXPECT TEMPS TO WARM INTO THE 70S MOST PLACES 
EXCEPT CLOSER TO THE COAST WHERE COOLER OCEAN TEMPS WILL KEEP THE 
AIR COOLER. ALTHOUGH CLOUDS WILL LIMIT WARMING...SOME BREAKS MAY 
PUSH TEMPS HIGHER IN A FEW PLACES. COASTAL CAROLINAS WILL BE IN WARM 
AND RELATIVELY MOIST AIR MASS ON WED AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD 
FRONT. THE MOISTURE THROUGH THE COLUMN WILL ACTUALLY DECREASE 
SLIGHTLY ON WED AS WARM FRONT LIFTS WELL NORTH AND COLD FRONT STILL 
REMAINS WELL WEST. LATEST GFS FELL MORE IN LINE WITH ECMWF HOLDING  
FROPA BACK UNTIL THURS. COASTAL CAROLINAS MAY NOT SEE MUCH IN THE 
WAY OF PCP ON WED AND MAY END UP WITH MORE IN THE WAY OF SUNSHINE 
AND WELL ABOVE NORMAL TEMPS. THE ONLY CURVE BALL COULD BE SOME SEA 
FOG WHICH MAY ADVECT INTO COASTAL AREAS AS WARM AIR FLOWS OVER 
COOLER OCEAN WATERS. WILL HAVE TO EVALUATE AS WE GET CLOSER TO SEE 
HOW THE WIND DIRECTION AND SPEED PAN OUT FOR FORMATION OF FOG.

COLD FRONT SHOULD CROSS THE AREA EARLY IN THE DAY ON THURSDAY. NOT 
INCLUDING ANY TSTORMS AT THIS TIME BUT SHWRS WILL BE INCREASING 
THROUGH WED NIGHT INTO THURS AHEAD AND ALONG THE FRONT. COLD AND DRY 
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD IN BEHIND FRONT WITH PCP TAPERING OFF LATE 
DAY THURS WITH CLEARING SKIES. PCP WATER VALUES OVER 1.5 INCHES 
EARLY THURS AHEAD OF COLD FRONT WILL DROP DOWN LESS THAN A TENTH OF 
AN INCH BY FRI MORNING. EXPECT COLD AND DRY WEATHER FRI INTO SAT AS 
HIGH PRESSURE SHIFTS OVERHEAD.

&&

.AVIATION /00Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
AS OF 00Z...SURFACE WEDGE IN PLACE WITH ISENTROPIC LIFT EXPECTED
TO BEGIN AFTER MIDNIGHT. THE WARM NOSE IS SO DEEP...LOOKS LIKE ANY
PRECIP OVERNIGHT WILL BE LIQUID. THE ONLY QUESTION IS IF WE WILL
GET BELOW FREEZING. LOOKS LIKE THE MOST LIKELY SCENARIO IS FOR THE
INLAND TERMINALS TO DROP BELOW FREEZING FOR A FEW HOURS JUST
BEFORE DAYBREAK. THE SHOULD BE A BRIEF PERIOD OF FREEZING
RAIN...WITH LITTLE ACCUMULATION EXPECTED. NORTHEAST WIND ARE
FORECAST TO STAY NEAR 10 KTS MOST OF THE NIGHT...WITH FALLING
CEILINGS AFTER MIDNIGHT. IFR CONDITIONS ARE A GOOD
BET...ESPECIALLY INLAND. LOOK FOR COLD AND DREARY CONDITIONS
SUNDAY AS WINTER REFUSES TO LET GO. CONDITIONS IMPROVING TOWARD
THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD AS THE WEDGE RECEDES AND WE BEGIN A
LONG OVERDUE SOUTHERLY FLOW.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK...BECOMING VFR MONDAY. PERIODS OF 
MVFR/SHOWERS LATE TUESDAY INTO THURSDAY. OTHERWISE VFR.

&&

.MARINE...
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
AS OF 630 PM SATURDAY...SMALL CRAFT CONTINUES FOR ALL WATERS AND
BASED ON LATEST WAVE FORECAST HAD TO EXTEND THE END OF THE
ADVISORY TO 12Z SUN. GRADIENT OVER THE WATERS REMAINS PINCHED THIS
EVENING AS HIGH PRESSURE RIDGES DOWN THE EAST COAST. COASTAL
TROUGH WILL START TO TAKE SHAPE OVERNIGHT...WEAKENING THE NEAR
SHORE GRADIENT. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR A REDUCTION IN NORTHEAST
FLOW...FROM 20 TO 25 KT DOWN TO 15 TO 20 KT AFTER MIDNIGHT.
DECREASE IN WIND SPEEDS ALLOWS FOR FALLING SEAS...BUT DURATION OF
NORTHEAST FLOW EVENT IS LIKELY TO MAINTAIN SCA ADVISORY SEAS
THROUGH THE END OF THE PERIOD.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/...
AS OF 300 PM SATURDAY...A COASTAL TROUGH WILL BE IMPACTING THE
WATERS SUN AND THEN LIFTING OUT SUN NIGHT. WINDS SUN MORNING WILL
BE FROM THE E AND SE...VEERING TO S AND SW SUN NIGHT AND THEN TO
THE W AND NW OVERNIGHT. BEHIND A COLD FRONT...WINDS WILL SHIFT TO
N MON AFTERNOON AND TO NE DURING THE EVE AND OVERNIGHT. WIND
SPEEDS WILL BE 10 TO 15 KT...UP TO 15 TO 20 KT OVERNIGHT MON. SEAS
WILL BE UP TO 3 TO 5 FT...REMAINING BELOW SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY
THRESHOLDS THROUGH THE PERIOD.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
AS OF 300 PM SATURDAY...HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED NORTH OF WATERS OVER 
MID ATLANTIC COAST WILL SHIFT OFF SHORE THROUGH TUES. THE COOL HIGH 
PRESS WILL REMAIN WEDGED IN OVER INLAND AREAS WHILE A COASTAL TROUGH 
DEVELOPS THROUGH THE DAY. A DEEP LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVING UP OVER 
THE GREAT LAKES WILL EVENTUALLY PULL A WARM FRONT AND COASTAL TROUGH 
NORTH BY TUES EVE. MAY SEE GRADIENT BECOME SLIGHTLY PINCHED BETWEEN 
WEDGE AND COASTAL TROUGH ON TUES BUT OVERALL EXPECT NE WINDS EARLY 
TUES SHIFTING AROUND TO E THEN SE BY END OF DAY AND SOUTHERLY 
THROUGH TUES NIGHT INTO WED AS WARM FRONT MOVES FARTHER NORTH. WINDS 
SHOULD REMAIN 15 KTS OR LESS TUES THROUGH WED MORNING. SEAS WILL BE 
2 TO 4 FT EARLY TUES BUT WILL INCREASE UP TO 4 TO 5 FT OUTER WATERS 
BY TUES EVENING IN INCREASING SOUTHERLY PUSH. THIS WILL WORK ITS WAY 
INTO NEAR SHORE WATERS WITH SEAS RANGING FROM 4 TO 6 FT BY MIDNIGHT 
AND POSSIBLY UP TO 7 FT OUT NEAR 20 NM OVERNIGHT.

SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH WED UP TO 15 KTS KEEPING SEAS 
GENERALLY IN THE 4 TO 6 FT RANGE BUT WILL INCREASE WED NIGHT INTO 
THURS AS COLD FRONT DRAWS NEAR. THE TIGHTENED GRADIENT FLOW WILL 
PRODUCE WINDS UP NEAR 20 KTS AS THEY VEER AROUND TO SW AND 
EVENTUALLY NW-N ON THURS AS COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH. SEAS WILL BE 
UP TO 4 TO 7 FT OVERNIGHT WED INTO EARLY THURS BEFORE DROPPING IN 
OFF SHORE FLOW THROUGH THURS. SURGE BEHIND FRONT WILL KEEP WINDS UP 
TO 15 TO 25 KTS ACROSS WATERS THURS NIGHT WITH WINDS AND SEAS 
GREATEST IN THE OUTER WATERS...UP TO 5 TO 7 FT. MAY SEE AN EXTENDED 
PERIOD OF SCA CONDITIONS FROM TUES NIGHT THROUGH THURS NIGHT UNTIL 
HIGH PRESSURE SETTLES CLOSER OVERHEAD ON FRI.
