AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILMINGTON NC
648 AM EDT THU OCT 30 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
SEASONABLE WEATHER WILL RETURN TODAY WHILE FRIDAY TURNS A BIT 
COOLER. SATURDAY WILL TURN ABRUPTLY COLDER WITH SOME LIGHT RAIN 
AND A WINTER-LIKE CHILL IN THE AFTERNOON BREEZE. SUNDAY WILL BE 
ALMOST AS COLD BUT NOT AS WINDY AND BOTH NIGHTS OF THE WEEKEND WILL 
BRING LOWS IN THE 30S, SUNDAY NIGHT THE COLDER OF THE TWO. MONDAY AND
TUESDAY BRING A GRADUAL WARMUP THAT BECOMES MORE PRONOUNCED 
WEDNESDAY.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
AS OF 645 AM THURSDAY...THE COLD FRONT HAS PUSHED OFF THE COAST
AND IS NEARLY OFFSHORE VIA LATEST BUOY AND COASTAL OBS. THE FRONT
WILL CONTINUE ITS SSE PROGRESSION AND WILL REACH THE OFFSHORE
WATERS BY DAYBREAK THU. THE COLD FRONT WILL BECOME ORIENTED
WITH THE FLOW ALOFT...FROM SW TO NE...TO A POSITION NOT TOO FAR
OFFSHORE FROM THE CAROLINA COASTS BEFORE STALLING LATER TODAY.
MORE PCPN THEN EXPECTED CONTINUES IMMEDIATELY BEHIND THE COLD
FRONT WITH SOME OF THESE CELLS EXHIBITING LIGHTNING. POPS WILL
BE ADJUSTED WITH THE LAST OF THE PCPN OFF THE COAST BY MID-MORNING
AND OFFSHORE BY NOON TODAY. THE NEXT PROBLEM DEALS WITH THE
EXTENT OF THE POST FRONTAL CLOUDINESS AS BOTH THE NAM AND GFS
MODEL TIME HEIGHT DISPLAYS ACROSS THE FA REMAIN QUITE DIFFERENT.
THE NAM LOOKS OVERDONE WITH THE MOISTURE FOR BOTH CLOUDS AND PCPN
CHANCES AND THUS WILL LEAN TOWARD THE DRIER GFS. DID KEEP CLOUDY
SKIES WELL INTO THE AFTN ACROSS THE COASTAL COUNTIES BUT CONTINUED
THE PARTIAL CLEARING TREND INLAND. FOR TONIGHT...MAINLY CLEAR WITH
PARTLY CLOUDY ALONG THE IMMEDIATE COAST. DRY CONDITIONS TO PREVAIL
WITH POPS REMAINING OFF THE COAST AS MODELS INDICATE A WEAK SFC
LOW MOVING ALONG THE STALLED FRONT. FOR MAX/MIN TEMPS...BASICALLY
DID A BLEND OF THE NAM/GFS MODEL MOS GUIDANCE WITH THE THINKING IS
THE NAM BEING TOO LOW AND THE GFS RUNNING A BIT HIGH.

&&

.SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/...
AS OF 3 AM THURSDAY...FRIDAY WILL BE RATHER NONDESCRIPT ESPECIALLY 
WHEN COMPARED TO THE PERIOD SOON THEREAFTER. DEEP EASTERN U.S. 
TROUGHINESS AND A COLD FRONT AND FLAT WAVE OF LOW PRESSURE WELL 
OFFSHORE WILL YIELD A GRADUAL INCREASE IN CLOUDINESS WHILE THE 
AFTERNOON REMAINS ON THE COOL SIDE OF CLIMATOLOGY. MEANWHILE A VERY 
ENERGETIC SYSTEM WILL BE DIGGING INTO THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES...TO 
THE TUNE OF A 36S-1 VORT MAX JUST EAST OF A NORTHERN JET OF 80KT AT 
500MB AND 120KT AT 250MB. WITH SUCH ENERGY ALOFT IT FOLLOWS THAT 
SOME DOWNRIGHT COLD AIR WILL BE BEING DRAWN SOUTH OUT OF CANADA. THE 
COLD BLAST IS SLATED FOR A SATURDAY ARRIVAL. THIS MEGA-VORT IS NOT 
YET BEING SAMPLED BY THE DENSE UPPER AIR OF THE U.S. SO THERE IS A 
LITTLE UNCERTAINTY AS TO HOW IT WILL MOVE THROUGH AND WHAT SURFACE 
REFLECTION WILL RESULT. THIS MAINLY BEING RELEVANT SINCE THE 
CURRENTLY DISCOUNTED WRF BRINGS IN A PREFRONTAL WARM SECTOR ALONG 
THE IMMEDIATE CAPE FEAR COAST. BARRING THAT THE FORECAST IS MORE 
SLANTED TOWARDS GFS/EC/PREV FCST. SATURDAY MORNING FINDS AN 
APPROXIMATE 5 SIGMA 500MB TROUGH IN THE EAST WITH THE AMAZING 536 
DAM CUTOFF RIGHT OVER ILM BY 18Z...THE FINE FOLKS AT WPC DESCRIBING 
AS A NEARLY 50 YEAR EVENT. LIGHT TO MODERATE RAIN SHOULD BREAK OUT 
WITH SOUTHERN ZONES OPERATING OFF OF PURE DYNAMICS WHILE NORTHERN 
ZONES WILL BENEFIT FROM FURTHER FORCING FROM LOW LEVEL WARM 
ADVECTION...FROM THE NORTHEAST! THIS SYSTEM IS SO STRONG AND COLD 
ALOFT THAT THE POSSIBILITY OF GRAUPEL WAS DISCUSSED WITH NEIGHBORING 
WFO. ITS A FAST MOVING SYSTEM THOUGH SO THE CHILLY AND RAW AFTERNOON 
WILL BE MORE NOTEWORTHY THAN THE RAINFALL AMOUNTS IN ANY GIVEN 
LOCATION. AS THE AFTERNOON WEARS ON AND THE DEPARTING/DEEPENING 
SURFACE LOW ACCELERATES OFF TO THE NORTHEAST A STRONG GRADIENT OF 
WELL-ALIGNED NORTHWESTERLY FLOW SHOULD REALLY GET THE WINDS QUITE 
GUSTY. THE COLD ADVECTION EASES SATURDAY NIGHT BUT NOT BEFORE THE 
AIRMASS IS COLD ENOUGH TO SUPPORT LOW TEMPS IN THE UPPER 30S. THE 
WIND STAYS UP WITH THE GRADIENT PRECLUDING RAD COOLING BUT FOR THE 
SAME REASON SUCH CHILL SHOULD MAKE ITS WAY RIGHT UP TO THE BEACHES.

&&

.LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
AS OF 3 AM THURSDAY...SUNDAY IS THE POST COLD ADVECTION DAY WHEREIN 
LARGE HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN. ALTHOUGH THE COLD ADVECTION HAS 
ALREADY TYPICALLY REVERSED BY THIS TIME THE MIXING IS SHALLOWER AND 
TEMPERATURE DEVIATIONS FROM CLIMO ARE ALMOST AS LARGE AS THE PRIOR 
DAY BUT NOT QUITE. ALL OF THIS SHOULD APPLY ON SUNDAY. SIMILARLY THE 
STAGE WILL BE SET FOR RAD COOLING...AS THE COLDEST NIGHT OF AN 
OUTBREAK IS USUALLY THE SECOND NIGHT. THERE APPEARS TO BE A 
LINGERING FEW MPH OF NE WINDS THAT MAY SPARE INLAND ZONES FREEZING 
TEMPS WHEREAS WEAK OCEAN INFLUENCE SHOULD FAVOR UPPER 30S COAST. THE 
CENTER OF THE HIGH IS HESITANT TO GET EAST OF THE REGION ON TUESDAY 
PRECLUDING BONA FIDE RETURN FLOW AND SO THE CLIMO TEMPS SEEN IN MOS 
BULLETINS SEEM TOO OPTIMISTIC...AND HAVE BEEN UNDERCUT BY JUST A FEW 
DEGREES. THE ACTUAL RETURN FLOW SHOULD GET UNDERWAY TUESDAY NIGHT 
INTO WEDNESDAY. WILL ADD SOME LOW POPS IN THE RETURN FLOW BUT MOST 
OF THE MOISTENING MAY STILL BE DEDICATED TO PW RECOVERY FROM THE 
COLD AIRMASS AS OPPOSED TO ACTUAL RAINFALL.

&&

.AVIATION /12Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
AS OF 12Z...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD IN THROUGHOUT THE DAY TODAY. 
SOME LINGERING IFR CEILINGS ARE POSSIBLE ALONG THE COAST...BUT ONLY 
FOR ANOTHER HOUR OR TWO. NORTHERLY WINDS TODAY...OCCASIONALLY GUSTY 
AROUND MID MORNING. SKIES WILL SCATTER THIS AFTERNOON...WITH HIGH 
CONFIDENCE FOR VFR CONDITIONS THROUGH THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK...VFR ON FRIDAY. A CHANCE OF MVFR POSSIBLY IFR 
PCPN SATURDAY WITH BREEZY TO WINDY CONDITIONS BOTH SATURDAY
INTO SUNDAY. VFR ON MONDAY.

&&

.MARINE...
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
AS OF 630 AM THURSDAY...COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE TO PUSH SSE ACROSS THE
COASTAL WATERS EARLY THIS MORNING...AND OFFSHORE AROUND DAYBREAK.
WINDS WILL VEER TO THE N AND NE AFTER THE CFP AND INCREASE TO
AROUND 15 KT...WITH GUSTS UP TO 20 KT POSSIBLE. THE COLD FRONT
WILL STALL OFFSHORE...BECOMING ORIENTED NE-SW. WEAK SFC LOW IS
PROGGED TO MOVE NE ALONG THIS FRONT AND WILL THUS KEEP A SEMI-
TIGHTENED SFC PG ACROSS THE AREA WATERS. THUS...WILL KEEP NNE TO NE
WINDS AT 10 TO AROUND 15 KT...WITH OCCASIONAL GUSTS UP TO 20 KT
FOR THE ILM NC WATERS WHICH ARE CLOSER TO THIS WEAK SFC LOW.
SIGNIFICANT SEAS WILL RUN 2 TO 4 FT AND BE COMPRISED INITIALLY OF
SW-W WIND DRIVEN WAVES BECOMING N-NE WIND DRIVEN. A MORE SOLID 3 TO
4 FT WILL EXIST OVER THE ILM NC WATERS...MAINLY FROM CAPE FEAR
NORTHWARD. DOMINANT PERIODS WILL RUN 3 TO 6 SECONDS. POST FRONTAL
PCPN WILL PUSH OFFSHORE BY NOON. PCPN ASSOCIATED WITH THE WEAK LOW
LATER TONIGHT...SHOULD ALSO REMAIN JUST OFFSHORE.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/...
AS OF 3 AM THURSDAY...COLD FRONT STALLED FAIRLY FAR OFF THE COAST ON 
FRIDAY WITH A FLAT/ELONGATED WAVE OF LOW PRESSURE RUNNING MUCH OF 
ITS LENGTH OFF THE SOUTHEAST COAST. THIS WAVE WILL HELP TO BOOST THE 
GRADIENT AND THE RESULTING NE WINDS AND SEAS WILL RUN CLOSE TO 
CAUTIONARY THRESHOLDS. AS THIS LOW CONGEALS INTO A MORE CIRCULAR 
SYSTEM AND PULLS AWAY TO THE NE LOCAL FLOW WILL BACK TO 
NORTHWESTERLY. THERE MAY EVEN BE A BRIEF LULL AS THE NEXT LOW AND 
COLD FRONT APPROACH FROM THE NW. THIS SYSTEM WILL DEFINE THE PERIOD 
HOWEVER. THE STRENGTH OF THE SYSTEM ALOFT WILL BE EXCEPTIONAL AND A 
BLAST OF COLD AIR AND SURGE IN GRADIENT WILL GET UNDERWAY 
IMMEDIATELY ON SATURDAY AND STRENGTHEN THROUGH THE AFTERNOON. THERE 
ARE SOME UNCERTAINTIES YET AS THE MAIN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE IS 
NOT BEING SAMPLED BY THE CONUS UPPER AIR BALLOONS. THIS WILL CHANGE 
HEADING INTO FRIDAY AND IT WILL BECOME MORE CLEAR AS TO WHETHER OR 
NOT A GALE WATCH WILL BE NEEDED. GALE FORCE GUSTS ARE CERTAINLY 
EXPECTED GIVEN THE STRENGTH OF THE LOW LEVEL FLOW AND STRONG MIXING 
OF THE COLD AIR FLOWING OVER THE WARMER SSTS. STILL ENOUGH 
UNCERTAINTY ABOUT SUSTAINED WINDS FOR A GALE WATCH AT THIS 
TIME...WHICH WOULD BE A BIT LONGER FUSED THAN NORMAL ANYWAY.  

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
AS OF 3 AM THURSDAY...THE GRADIENT WILL STILL BE QUITE STRONG EARLY 
SUNDAY ESPECIALLY OVER NORTHERN ZONES. HOWEVER THERE WILL BE A 
MARKED ABATING TREND AS THE DAY WEARS ON DUE TO THE RAPID 
NORTHEASTERLY MOVEMENT OF THE STILL DEEPENING LOW THAT AFFECTED US 
DIRECTLY DURING THE SHORT TERM. IN FACT AS IT APPEARS NOW THERE MAY 
BE NO HEADLINES NEEDED BY MIDDAY OR SO. FOR MUCH OF MONDAY HIGH 
PRESSURE WILL ELONGATE UP AND DOWN THE CAROLINAS WITH A LATE DAY 
SHIFT TOWARDS THE COASTLINE. N WINDS WILL VEER TO THE NE AND GROW 
LIGHTER.
