NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILMINGTON NC
1220 AM EST SUN DEC 21 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
WEAK HIGH PRESSURE ALONG WITH A FRONT JUST OFFSHORE WILL KEEP CLOUDY 
AND COOL CONDITIONS IN PLACE THROUGH SUNDAY. ANOTHER ROUND OF RAIN 
IS EXPECTED...ESPECIALLY LATE SUNDAY INTO MONDAY WHEN A STORM MOVES 
UP THE COAST. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS RETURN TUESDAY NIGHT INTO 
WEDNESDAY WITH A COLD FRONT. BREEZY BUT CLEAR WEATHER IS EXPECTED 
FOR CHRISTMAS DAY. DRY CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST INTO NEXT WEEKEND.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/...
AS OF 1230 AM SUNDAY...NO CHANGES TO THE FORECAST WITH THE LATEST
UPDATE. PREVIOUS DISCUSSION FOLLOWS:

SHORTWAVE ACROSS WEST TEXAS IS ENABLING THE SOUTHERN STREAM TO
BUCKLE INTO THE SOUTHERN STATES THIS EVENING. THUS THE SWATH OF
MID LEVEL DRY AIR CURRENTLY ACROSS THE CAROLINAS WILL BE SHORT-
LIVED. REGIONAL RADAR SHOWS LIGHT RAIN ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN
SC AND SOUTHEASTERN GA...MOVING E-NE. THINK MOST OF THIS VERY LOW
QPF RAINFALL WILL REMAIN TO OUR SOUTH TONIGHT. ISENTROPIC LIFT
DOESN'T RETURN IN EARNEST ACROSS OUR AREA UNTIL SUNDAY. HAVE HEDGE
POPS UPWARD ACROSS THE SOUTHERN ZONES BY 1200 UTC SUN. OTHERWISE
WITH WEAK COLD AIR ADVECTION AT THE SURFACE AND AMPLE CLOUD COVER
TEMPS WILL ONLY SLOWLY DROP THROUGH THE EARLY MORNING HOURS.
BUMPED UP MINS A FEW DEGREES GIVEN THIS TREND... ESPECIALLY ACROSS
THE PEE DEE AND LBT AREA WHERE TEMPS ARE STILL HANGING ON IN THE
LOWER 40S. PATCHY FOG IS ALSO A GOOD BET THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT.

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/...
AS OF 330 PM SATURDAY...DREARY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE FOR THE 
SHORT TERM PERIOD. A BROAD SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL INTERACT WITH A 
PERSISTENT BAROCLINIC ZONE JUST OFFSHORE AND A WEDGE OF HIGH 
PRESSURE INLAND. THE MODELS ARE IN GENERAL AGREEMENT ON SUNDAY 
REMAINING DRY FOR THE MOST PART. THERE COULD BE THE ISOLATED 
SPRINKLE OR MORE LIKELY PATCH OF DRIZZLE BUT OVERCAST SKIES AND COOL 
CONDITIONS SHOULD DO IT. 

A 300MB JET STREAK BRINGS ANOTHER ROUND OF RAIN FOR LATE SUNDAY INTO 
MONDAY MORNING. THE NAM AND GFS PAINT MOST OF THE HEAVIER QPF 
OFFSHORE WHERE THE BEST DIVERGENCE ALOFT RESIDES. THE BEST 
ISENTROPIC LIFT ON THE 300K SURFACE RESIDES WEST OF I-95 AND THE 
COAST IS LEFT IN BETWEEN WITH WEAK FORCING. HOWEVER THE QPF AMOUNTS 
WEST OF THE INTERSTATE ARE CERTAINLY NOT IMPRESSIVE MAKING THE 
OVERALL QPF AMOUNTS FAIRLY PALTRY. BEYOND MONDAY MORNING THE BEST 
FORCING MOVES OFF QUICKLY LEAVING OVERCAST/DRIZZLY SKIES. 

TEMPERATURE GUIDANCE IS IN GENERAL AGREEMENT OTHER THAN MONDAYS 
HIGHS WHEN THE GFS/MAV NUMBERS ARE MUCH WARMER. HARD TO TRUST THESE 
HOWEVER AS SURFACE PRESSURE PLOTS SHOW THE WEDGE...ALTHOUGH 
WEAKENING REMAINING IN PLACE. I DID USE A BLEND BUT WOULD NOT BE 
SURPRISED TO SEE SUBSEQUENT BULLETINS FROM THE GFS COOL.

&&

.LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
AS OF 330 PM SATURDAY...WEDGE WILL BE ERODED ON TUES AS A WAVE OF 
LOW PRESSURE MOVES NORTH ALONG THE CAROLINA COAST. AT THE SAME TIME 
A HIGH AMPLITUDE MID TO UPPER TROUGH WILL DIG DOWN FROM THE UPPER 
GREAT LAKES INTO TEXAS PUSHING A COLD FRONT EAST. A DEEP S-SW FLOW 
WILL BRING PLENTY OF WARM AIR AND MOISTURE INTO THE SOUTHEAST AHEAD 
OF THE FRONT. INITIALLY ON TUES SHALLOW COOLER AIR WILL BE IN PLACE 
AS THE WARMER AIR OVERRIDES IT PRODUCING INCREASED ISENTROPIC LIFT 
AND INCREASED RAIN CHANCES. AS THE DAY WEARS ON...THE WINDS WILL 
COME AROUND WITH WARMER AND MOISTER AIR FLOWING IN. ALWAYS TOUGH TO 
TIME THIS AS COLD DENSE AIR HOLDS ON LONGER THAN MODELS USUALLY 
PREDICT. FOR NOW WILL KEEP WITH TEMPS WARMING THROUGH LATE DAY WITH 
WARMER AND MORE HUMID AIR MASS IN PLACE TUES NIGHT INTO WED. 

UNSETTLED WEATHER WILL REMAIN AHEAD THE COLD FRONT THROUGH TUES 
NIGHT INTO WED BEFORE COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH LATE WED. INCREASING 
LOW LEVEL JET UP TO 40 KTS WILL COMBINE WITH BETTER UPPER LEVEL 
FORCING TO PRODUCE MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWERS THROUGH TUES NIGHT INTO 
WED. KEPT ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS IN FORECAST TUES NIGHT INTO WED AS 
WARM FRONT LIFTS NORTH AND LOCAL AREA GETS INTO BEST MOISTURE AND 
LIFT. PCP WATER VALUES REACH UP TO 2 INCHES ALONG THE COAST WED AFTN

THE DIGGING MID TO UPPER TROUGH WILL PUSH THE COLD FRONT THROUGH WED 
NIGHT BEFORE FINALLY MOVE OFF SHORE BY THURS MORNING LEAVING DRIER 
AND COOLER WEATHER FOR CHRISTMAS DAY. OVERALL EXPECT CLOUDY AND DAMP 
TO WET WEATHER THROUGH THE FIRST HALF OF THE PERIOD WITH COOLER MORE 
SEASONABLE WEATHER THURS INTO FRI AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS ACROSS THE 
SOUTH. THE HIGH WILL SHIFT OFF SHORE THROUGH FRI LEAVING A LIGHT 
RETURN FLOW AND WARMER TEMPS FRI INTO SATURDAY WITH A GOOD DEAL OF 
SUNSHINE. NEXT COLD FRONT SHOULD MOVE THROUGH SAT NIGHT BUT LOOKS 
LIKE IT MAY BE LACKING ANY DEEP MOISTURE.

&&

.AVIATION /06Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/... 
AS OF 06Z...EXPECT CIGS TO FLUCTUATE BETWEEN MVFR/VFR OVERNIGHT
WITH BRIEF PERIODS OF TEMPO IFR POSSIBLE EARLY THIS MORNING. THE
3-6KFT LAYER REMAINS SATURATED THROUGH THE PERIOD...SO STRATOCU
WILL PERSIST AS A COASTAL TROUGH SHARPENS OFFSHORE. ALTHOUGH THERE
ARE A FEW PATCHES OF 800-1000 FT STRATUS OUT THERE TONIGHT...DO
NOT ANTICIPATE PERSISTENT CIGS AT THESE LEVELS BASED ON THE
FORECAST SOUNDINGS AND SREF PROBS. CIGS MAY BRIEFLY IMPROVE TO VFR
IN THE MORNING BEFORE ANOTHER ROUND OF MOIST ISENTROPIC LIFT
BRINGS MORE -RA AND LOWERS THEM BACK DOWN TO MVFR AGAIN. PRECIP
SHOULD BEGIN AROUND 15Z AT THE SOUTHERN TERMINALS AND AFTER 18Z AT
KILM/KLBT. NORTHEAST WINDS AOB 10 KT WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE DAY.
AFTER 00Z MON...CIGS WILL DROP FURTHER AS RAIN CONTINUES TO FALL.
WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED TO SEE IFR CIGS BY THE END OF THE PERIOD
ESPECIALLY ALONG THE COAST...BUT FOR NOW WILL KEEP ALL SITES MVFR.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK...RAIN LIKELY MON WITH MVFR/IFR CIGS AS A COASTAL
TROUGH DEVELOPS OFFSHORE. SHOWERS/TEMPO MVFR EXPECTED TUE/WED
AHEAD OF A STRONG COLD FRONT. GUSTY WINDS WED/THU BEFORE AND AFTER
FROPA. THU WILL BE VFR AT ALL TERMINALS.

&&

.MARINE...
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
AS OF 1230 AM SUNDAY...NO CHANGES TO THE FORECAST WITH THE LATEST
UPDATE. PREVIOUS DISCUSSION FOLLOWS:

NORTH TO NORTHEAST FETCH WITH LOW PRESSURE TO THE SOUTH AND
RIDGING FROM THE NORTH HAS RESULTED IN STEEP 3 TO 5 FT. THE
DOMINANT PERIOD IS AROUND 5 SECONDS THIS EVENING...AND A SIMILAR
SEA STATE IS EXPECTED OVERNIGHT. FIRST BATCH OF LIGHT RAIN IS
EXITING THE CAPE FEAR COASTAL WATERS. TRENDS FOR INCREASING LIGHT
RAIN...ESPECIALLY SOUTHERN WATERS...DURING THE EARLY MORNING
HOURS.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/...
AS OF 330 PM SATURDAY...A FAIRLY BRISK NORTHEAST FLOW WILL PERSIST 
ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS SUNDAY IN BETWEEN A BAROCLINIC ZONE TO THE 
EAST AND HIGH PRESSURE INLAND. AS LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPS AND MOVES UP 
ALONG THIS FRONT SUNDAY NIGHT...THE FLOW WILL TURN MORE EASTERLY. 
SPEEDS THROUGHOUT WILL BE 15-20 KNOTS. SOME HIGHER SEAS CAN BE 
EXPECTED WITH THE SOMEWHAT PROLONGED NATURE OF THE WINDS...3-5 FEET. 
CANT RULE OUT A FEW SIX FOOTERS BUT THINK A SMALL CRAFT HEADLINE CAN 
BE AVOIDED. LIGHTER WINDS AND SEAS CAN BE EXPECTED MONDAY ALTHOUGH 
THE FLOW WILL GENERALLY BE THE SAME. 

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
AS OF 330 PM SATURDAY...WAVE OF LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE UP THE
CAROLINA COAST ON TUES WITH WINDS COMING AROUND THROUGH THE DAY.
LIGHT NORTHERLY WINDS WILL SHIFT AROUND BECOMING MORE ON SHORE
THROUGH THE DAY AND EVENTUALLY SOUTHERLY BY TUES EVENING.

A LARGE AND POTENT STORM SYSTEM WILL PUSH A COLD FRONT EAST WITH 
INCREASING SOUTHERLY WINDS IN A TIGHTENING GRADIENT FLOW TUES NIGHT 
INTO WED. WINDS WILL INCREASE UP TO 15 TO 25 KTS TUES NIGHT INTO WED 
AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT. THIS WILL PUSH SEAS UP FROM 2 TO 4 FT EARLY 
TUES TO 3 TO 5 FT BY LATE TUES. WNA SHOWS SEAS RAMPING UP ABOVE 6 FT 
BY WED MORNING AND POSSIBLE UP TO 7 TO 9 FT IN OUTER WATERS IN 
STRONGER SW TO W FLOW AS FRONT MOVES THROUGH THE WATERS LATE WED 
INTO WED NIGHT. EXPECT SMALL CRAFT CONDITIONS WED AND LASTING INTO 
THURS WITH HIGHEST SEAS GETTING PUSHED FARTHER OFF SHORE IN STRONGER 
W-NW FLOW BEHIND FRONT.
