NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1025 PM EDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will be centered off the coast tonight. A weak cold 
front will move through from the west Friday night. A secondary 
stronger cold front will cross the area Saturday night stalling 
south of the region Sunday. Developing low pressure in the plains 
will push a warm front north into the area Tuesday...with a cold 
front approaching late Wednesday into Wednesday night. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Friday morning/... 
rather benign weather conditions tonight as an upper ridge moves 
through the area then offshore. Temperatures will cool quickly this evening 
with low dew points, mainly clear skies and light wind. Went 
below guidance for min temperatures on Outer Banks and with cooler guidance rest 
of area....mainly middle to upper 40s. Moist south flow develops late 
with some low clouds moving in from the coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Friday morning through 6 PM Friday/... 
as of 300 PM Thursday...dampening short WV trough and assctd surface cold 
front will move in during the day. Storm Prediction Center upgraded severe outlook to 
slight risk over area and concur on marginal severe threat during afternoon 
with forecast sounding convective available potential energy to around 1200 and shear around 40 knots. 
Continued previous forecast probability of precipitation with 20% over SW half of area during 
morning with initial warm air advection...then 30-50 probability of precipitation for thunderstorms during 
afternoon...highest over western sections. Temperatures will be able to rise to 
around 80 inland sections even with some cloudiness...and around 70 
Outer Banks. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Thursday/... 
as of 230 PM Thursday...scattered rain showers/thunderstorms and rain will be ongoing early Friday evening 
ahead of approaching cold front...espcly NE tier closer to short 
wave and better forcing. Could still be small chance of strong to severe 
storm early but with instability waning threat shld end quickly after 
sunset. All precipitation shld exit by around midnight as front/short wave 
move offshore with clearing skies and lows middle 50s inland to around 
60 beaches. Weak high will pass offshore to the S Sat with plenty of 
sun and mild temperatures around 80 inland to upper 60s/lower 70s beaches. 
Secondary dry cold front will sag S through the region Sat night and 
stall to the S Sunday. Thicknesses drop a bit behind this front 
espcly NE tier with highs ranging from lower 60s NE CST to middle/upper 
70s SW. Ridge of high pressure near region Sun night into early Monday will 
slide offshore later Monday. Will start to see moisture increase later 
Monday espcly inland and continue small pop mainly west of Highway 17 in the 
afternoon. Isent lift will increase Monday night as frontal zone stalled to 
the S becomes more defined. Although fairly far out in time both 
GFS/European model (ecmwf) focus precipitation across northern tier Monday night and followed this 
with chance probability of precipitation north and west to slight chance southeast. 


Tuesday through Thursday looks unsettled as stacked upper low stalls near southern 
Great Lakes with frontal zone extending from this low to near or 
just north of the region. Moist SW flow aloft will lead to bouts of rain showers 
and poss thunderstorms and rain through the period and have probability of precipitation mainly in the chance to 
good chance range this far out. Some indication that wave will develop 
on front and push bulk of moisture off the CST later Thursday but too 
early to really jump on that. Will be mainly in warm sector Tuesday into 
Thursday however clouds and precipitation will keep temperatures near normal with highs 
in the 70s inland to upper 60s/near 70 beaches. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Friday through Tuesday/... 
short term /through 00z Saturday/... 
VFR conditions for the first half of the forecast period...then 
becoming MVFR early Friday morning. Mainly clear skies and light 
winds through midnight as an upper ridge moves through the area. 
Moist south flow increases toward morning with low clouds/MVFR 
ceilings moving in off the coast by sunrise. May mix out the lower 
cloud layers before midday Thursday but scattered showers/thunderstorms 
will develop during the afternoon and bring periods of possible 
sub-VFR. Will just have vcsh for now until better timing of precipitation 
and lower ceilings can be resolved. S/SW winds increase Friday with 
gusts near 25 knots likely during the afternoon. 


Long term /Friday night through Tue/... 
as of 230 PM Thursday...scattered MVFR poss early Friday evening with rain showers/thunderstorms and rain 
then VFR from M Idaho evening on as moisture slides offshore. High pressure 
will dominate Sat though Monday with mainly VFR expected. Warm front 
will lift north through the region later Monday night and Tuesday with increasing 
chance of rain showers and poss thunderstorms and rain with some reduced flight categories 
likely. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Friday/... 
mainly light southeast winds overnight with high pressure centered off the 
coast. An approaching cold front will then produce increasing S-SW 
winds on Friday. Model blend indicates winds 15-20 kts with gusts 
to 25 knots likely for southern and central waters by late afternoon...and 
posted Small Craft Advisory there at 5 PM and continuing into Friday night. 


Blend of nwps and Swan used for seas. Heights will subside to 2-3 feet 
tonight...then build again Friday with 4-6 feet likely outer portions 
of southern and central waters by Friday evening. 


Long term /Friday night through Tue/... 
as of 230 PM Thursday...brief Small Craft Advisory expected first part of Friday night central 
and southern tier with gusty SW winds 20 to 25 kts ahead of cold front in 
the evening. These winds will build seas to 6 feet outer waters S of 
Oregon Inlet. Winds will gradient shift to northwest 15 to 20 kts in wake of 
front later Friday night with seas subsiding to 3 to 5 feet by Sat morning. 
Weak high will cross to the S Sat with winds becoming SW at or below 15 kts 
and seas subsiding to mainly 2 to 3 feet. Secondary cold front will 
sag south-southeast through the region later Sat night. West-southwest winds could reach 15 to 
20 kts ahead the front Sat night with north-northeast winds close to 15 to 20 
kts central and northern tier behind front early Sunday. Seas mainly 2 to 
4 feet Sat night and Sunday...poss some 5 footer outer central and northern 
waters. High pressure will linger near the region Sun night through Monday with
