Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 1044 am EST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 Synopsis... low pressure will move along the North Carolina coast today. A weak front will move through the area on Thursday. High pressure will build into North Carolina by the end of the week and remain through the weekend. A cold front will move through the area Monday with high pressure building in Tuesday. && Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... as of 10am Wednesday...surface low pressure located across eastern North Carolina late this morning bringing widespread heavy rain with a few embedded lightning strikes. Msas analysis shows 6 mb 3-hour pressure falls east of the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia peninsula and expect to low to quickly pull off the northern obx over the next few hours. Continue to watch the radar for potential damaging wind gusts or a tornado ahead of the low where strong shear and helicity coincide with limited cape...mainly across the coastal waters but stretching inland to portions of the sound counties. Most favorable location will be along the boundary separating the warm moist air along the coast and cooler air inland. This boundary is currently moving quickly across Carteret County northward into Pamlico County...then oriented NE across Mainland Hyde and Dare County and off the coast of Kitty Hawk. This line is expected to move off the coast around noon with the severe threat quickly diminishing. There is a tremendous gradient of temperatures along this boundary as well with lower 70s along the coast to middle 40s inland which has been tough to capture the trends in the grids. Once the low moves offshore expect temperatures to continue or fall to the middle 40s to around 50 across all of eastern NC for the afternoon hours. && Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Thursday/... as of 315 am Wednesday...surface low will continue to lift along the NE and New England coast tonight. Precipitation will continue to taper off in the evening from SW to NE...and expect pred dry conditions overnight. Dries out quickly overnight with forecast sounding showing precipitable water values 0.5" by 00z. A strong shortwave trough will approach the region late with increasing cloud cover. Patchy fog possible overnight with wet ground...especially inland...but with cloud cover not expecting sig development at this time. Overnight lows in the middle 30s to lower 40s. && Long term /Thursday through Tuesday/... middle/upper level wave will cross north of the area providing an increase of cloudiness on Thanksgiving. Drying of the column in the mean west flow and lack of appreciable forcing south of the main upper impulse should limit precipitation chances on Thursday so will keep the forecast dry. As high pressure builds toward the area, colder temperatures will filter in late in the week with highs Thursday ranging from around 50 north to around 55 south. Light north winds Thursday night will prevent a full drop off of temperatures but lows will fall to below freezing away from the coast. Friday even colder with highs only middle to upper 40s despite lots of sunshine. Excellent radiational cooling conditions set up Friday night with high pressure overhead. Expect lows at least falling to the upper 20s inland with near freezing temperatures also at the coast. With upper ridge building to the south, dry stretch of weather will continue and temperatures gradually moderate during the weekend and into early next week as high pressure moves offshore and return flow strengthens. Highs in the middle and upper 50s Saturday will warm into the middle and upper 60s Sunday and Monday. A backdoor cold front will drop temperatures back into the upper 50s and low 60s on Tuesday. Models continue to suggest limited moisture with the front so will maintain the dry forecast through Tuesday. && Aviation /15z Wednesday through Sunday/... short term /through tonight/... as of 10 am Wednesday...moderate to heavy rain continues across rtes this morning with low pressure lifting NE across eastern NC. The low has moved east of the terminals with north/northwest flow bringing in much lower temperatures and IFR ceilings at the terminals. Ceilings expected to gradually lift to MVFR from west to east late this morning/early this afternoon. North/northwest winds gradient gusting 20-25kt...although seeing higher gusts in heavier showers. Expect ceilings to gradually improve late this afternoon and evening as a much drier airmass filters into the area...however with a Wednesday ground and light winds late tonight could see areas of fog developing. Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... cloudiness increases as a middle/upper level wave will crosses the area Thursday but expect ceilings to remain VFR. Expect VFR conditions to dominate as surface high pressure moves into the region late this week and passes offshore during the weekend. May see periods of late night patchy fog over the weekend. && Marine... short term /through tonight/... as of 10 am Wednesday...low pressure is lifting across eastern NC late this mornign and will move off the coast by early afternoon. Strong southerly winds continue south of Oregon Inlet this morning...with northerly winds to the north. Winds will become west/northwest this afternoon as low lifts NE of the area. Gale warnings continue for waters south of Oregon Inlet with 20-30kt and gusts 35-40kt through early this afternoon...while Small Craft Advisory continues for remaining waters/sounds and rivers. Though brief period of gale force gusts possible for northern waters late this morning and afternoon...but mainly expected to be embedded in heavier showers. Nwps and wavewatch in good agreement with seas peaking up to 13 feet on the outer waters. Winds will be gradually diminishing this evening and tonight as low moves along the New England coast. Elevated seas will continue through the period. Strong onshore winds this morning could result in minor water level rises...generally a foot or less. Minor rises will be possible along the northern Outer Banks initially...and then on the Soundside of the Outer Banks this afternoon as winds become W/nwly. No issues expected at this time. Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... after a brief relative lull in winds early Thursday, northwest winds will again increase as a secondary surge of cold air pushes through the area Thursday afternoon. Small Craft Advisory conditions will be likely to continue into Thursday night most marine areas and into Friday for lingering 6 feet seas over the northern and central coastal waters. Winds will then diminish quickly late Friday into Friday night as high pressure moves overhead. Winds shift SW and steadily increase as the high pushes offshore during the weekend, possibly reaching Small Craft Advisory levels again by Sunday afternoon. && Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... NC...none. Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM EST this evening for amz136- 137. Small Craft Advisory until 10 PM EST this evening for amz130- 131-135. Gale Warning until 1 PM EST this afternoon for amz152-154-156- 158. Small Craft Advisory until 2 PM EST Friday for amz150. && $$ Synopsis...cqd/dag near term...sk short term...cqd long term...btc aviation...btc/sk/cqd marine...btc/sk/cqd
