NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
311 PM EST Friday Feb 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will build north of the area through Sunday. A weak 
cold front will approach from the northwest Sunday night and cross 
the region Monday. The front will stall to the south Monday night 
then lift north through the region late Tuesday. A stronger cold 
front will approach from the west Wednesday into Wednesday night 
and cross the area on Thursday. High pressure will build in from 
the west Friday. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 
a weak secondary cold front will reinforce cold air over eastern 
NC this evening leaving a good radiational cooling set up as lower 
atmosphere decouples overnight. Models Load up boundary layer 
moisture under nocturnal inversion tonight and any low clouds that 
develop will limit the temperature fall. Have favored the lower 
end of temperature guidance tonight for now but min temperatures may need 
to be raised if low cloud cover becomes extensive. Have put 
tonights record lows below for reference purposes but most should 
not be reached. 


It looks like most of the snowpack has melted this afternoon but 
could be a few lingering black ice issues for secondary roads over 
far northwest areas (mainly Martin/Pitt counties) overnight. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday/... 
strong surface high pressure continues to build to the north of the 
area under a near zonal west-southwest flow aloft. Another unseasonably cold 
day will wrap up the already well below normal temperature month 
of February. Increasing clouds ahead of downstream short wave will 
help hold high temperatures Saturday afternoon in the middle and upper 30s 
over northern areas and to around 40/low 40s south. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Friday/... 
as of 3 PM Friday...high pressure will continue over the region Sat 
night with cold lows in the upper teens to lower 20s inland to 
upper 20s/around 30 coast. The high will shift off the coast 
Sunday with warm air advection over the region...temperatures will moderate into the middle 
40s to lower 50s. 


A weak cold front will approach from the northwest Sunday night and 
cross the region Monday. Rain chances will gradually increase Sunday 
night ahead of the front and peak Monday as the front crosses. For 
now will keep probability of precipitation in chance range given uncertainty on 
timing/moisture. Will be mild with lows Sunday night upper 30s to 
middle 40s and highs Monday in the 50s to around 60. The weak front 
will stall to the south Monday night with drier air spreading south 
over eastern NC. Continued previous forecast trend for lowering 
probability of precipitation Monday night...with most locations dry except for far 
southwestern zones Onslow/Duplin counties in slight chance probability of precipitation. 
Lows in the lower 30s inland to lower 40s along the coast. The 
front will lift back north as warm front late Tuesday with chance 
of rain showers as temperatures continue in the 50s Tuesday. 


Eastern NC will be in warm sector Wednesday with SW winds...both 
GFS and European model (ecmwf) show limited moisture over region so maintained 
lowered slight chance probability of precipitation and temperatures into lower 70s inland. Near 
shore water temperatures are cold and this will keep beaches much cooler 
with poss threat of sea fog. Stronger cold front will approach Wednesday 
night and cross Thursday. The GFS remains a fast outlier while the 
operational European model (ecmwf) delays frontal passage until Thursday. The oper 
European model (ecmwf) has support from its ensemble members and the Canadian Gem 
so will discount the GFS in the far extended at this time and 
hedge closer to the 12z European model (ecmwf)/wpc solution. Temperatures will remain 
very mild ahead of the front through midday Thursday with temperatures 
well into the 60s inland. Rain showers will increase Thursday with 
frontal passage. The front will move off the coast Thursday 
afternoon with strong high pressure building east over the region 
from the Tennessee Valley area. Thicknesses fall quickly behind 
the front Friday with highs only expected in the middle 40s north to 
low 50s south. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Friday through Wednesday/... 
short term /through 18z Saturday/... 
as of 1 PM...high confidence of VFR conditions for most of the taf 
period. High cirrus clouds will stream across the area this 
afternoon. Latest visible satellite is indicating the development of 
low level clouds around 2500 feet and have indicated it for isolated/oaj 
tafs sites. Tonight...models are showing the development of low 
level clouds...bring conditions down to MVFR/IFR. At this 
time...confidence is moderate to high with MVFR/IFR conditions to 
develop in the inland taf sites (pgv/iso)...with low to moderate 
confidence along the coastal sites (ewn/oaj). Guidance is showing 
a good agreement with conditions improving to VFR around 8z with 
middle to high clouds streaming by by the way 20-25kft. Overall...high 
pressure is building in from the northwest and will provide a 
northernly/northeast wind flow across the area. 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 305 PM Friday...strong high pressure will build in from the 
north through Sat night and move offshore Sunday, leading to 
mainly VFR conditions through Sunday with just small threat of 
some lower ceilings with NE flow Sat veering to southeast Sunday. Cold front 
will approach Sunday night and cross Monday with better chances of 
periods of reduced cigs/vsbys. Front will stall to south Monday 
night and lift back north as warm front Tuesday with possibly some 
lower flight categories especially Tuesday as moisture increases over 
the area. A cold front will approach from the west Wednesday 
as surface flow shifts southwest and may become gusty Wednesday 
afternoon. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Saturday/... 
north winds will kick up behind a weak reinforcing cold front this 
evening. Winds will likely remain below Small Craft Advisory 
levels for Albemarle Sound and rivers but borderline for Pamlico 
Sound and coastal waters. Seas are already 6+ feet over much of the 
coastal waters, so a Small Craft Advisory will remain in effect through Saturday 
for the coastal waters and will likely Post a Small Craft Advisory 
for Pamlico Sound as well. North winds will begin to decrease as 
the pressure gradient gradually relaxes at the coast late 
Saturday. 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 310 PM Friday...strong high pressure will build north of 
the waters through Sat night then slowly shift off the middle-Atlantic 
coast late Sunday. As the high weakens and slides east Sunday, 
winds will diminish and become more east-southeast. A cold front will approach 
Sunday night and cross the waters Monday. SW winds will increase to 
15-20 kts ahead of the front then shift to the northwest behind it 
Monday. Seas will be in the 3-5 foot range Monday. Moderate north to 
northeasterly flow develops Monday night with seas continuing 3-5 
feet though cannot rule out a few 6 feet seas for the far outer 
fringes of the central coastal waters from Oregon Inlet south to 
Ocracoke Inlet. A warm front will lift north through the waters 
late Tuesday with winds shifting south-southeast and seas mainly 2 to 4 feet. 
Winds continue to veer southwest Wednesday and increase 15-25 knots 
with seas building 4-7 feet due to a tightening southwesterly 
pressure gradient over the waters. The front will near Wednesday 
night and cross the waters Thursday midday. Local Swan/nwps 
remained in good shape through the medium range. Modified the 12z 
wavewatch iii a bit for the extended due to GFS-based winds 
bringing the cold front through too early Wednesday.
