NWS Forecaster Discussion
Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 418 PM EDT Wednesday Mar 12 2014 Synopsis... a strong cold front will move across the region and offshore this evening. Cold high pressure will build in Thursday producing gusty northwest winds and very low relative humidity. The high will be over the area Friday and then move offshore Saturday. A cold front will move through Saturday night and Sunday with low pressure lifting near the area Sunday night and Monday. && Near term /until 6 am Thursday morning/... as of 315 PM Wednesday...very little precipitation remaining across the region currently as main cold front is still in the east Tennessee mountains. This precipitation trend was well depicted by the 4 km NSSL WRF and hrrr...which show the main action occurring along the actual cold front. Both models depict a line of showers with possibly some embedded thunder between roughly 00z and 03z this evening. Have likely probability of precipitation associated with this line...with rapid cooler and drying behind the front as skies clear after midnight and strong cold air advection kicks in. With gusty west-northwest/northwest winds...minimum temperatures will be fairly uniform...in the middle 30s area-wide by morning. && Short term /Thursday/... as of 320 PM Wednesday...strong cool high pressure will build across the middle south on Thursday with gusty northwest winds and strong cold advection characterizing the weather on Thursday. The 850 mb temperatures will be around -10 to -11 degree c during Thursday afternoon...holding maximum temperatures in the low to middle 40s. Low humidity will lead to increased fire danger. See fire weather section below. && Long term /Thursday night through Wednesday/... as of 325 PM Wednesday...high pressure settles over the area Thursday night with winds becoming light/calm and mainly clear skies setting up for good radiational cooling conditions. Lows drop well into the 20s away from the coast...with upper 20s/near 30 beaches. Freeze headlines still possible on the obx Thursday night/Friday morning as the growing season has begun here. Moderating temperatures expected Friday as highs climb back into the 50s...with even warmer temperatures for Saturday as highs climb back to near climatology in the low/middle 60s. Medium/long range model suites indicate a back door cold front dropping through the region Saturday night or Sunday with northeast flow likely through the early part of next week. Latest ensemble height fields indicate below normal heights with a return to troughing in the east early next week. An unsettled weather pattern likely early next week as southern stream moisture phases with a robust north stream trough across the south. Ensemble spread increases greatly early next week...especially with the surface pattern...leading to below average confidence in the forecast...but latest operational GFS and European model (ecmwf) in a little better agreement moving low pressure tracking near the area late Sunday into Monday and have increased probability of precipitation slightly...to high chance. High pressure prognosticated to build back into the area Tuesday into Wednesday. && Aviation /20z Wednesday through Monday/... short term /tonight and Thursday/... as of 110 PM Wednesday...general VFR conditions will prevail into the late afternoon hours as shower activity will remain spotty and any reductions to ceiling or visibility will be brief. Per 4 km WRF models...expect a line of showers and possible embedded thunder between roughly 00z and 03z to 04z this evening and have forecast a brief period of MVFR visibility with about 5000 foot ceilings. Skies become VFR by midnight tonight. Gusty SW winds will become west/northwest behind the front later this evening. Thursday will be sunny but gusty west-northwest/northwest winds will continue gusting to around 30 knots. Long term /Thursday through Monday/... as of 320 PM Wednesday...predominate VFR conditions expected through the period. Increasing low level moisture Friday night into the weekend could result in better chances for patchy fog each morning. Precipitation chances increase sun through Monday with low pressure tracking near the area and will likely see sub VFR conditions this period. && Marine... short term /tonight and Thursday/... as of 325 PM Wednesday...winds are quickly increasing over the central and northern waters and sounds in good mixing in warm sector ahead of cold front...currently crossing the east Tennessee mountains. Cold front will slide offshore during the evening with west-northwest/northwest winds increasing to 25 to 35 knots with gusts to 40 knots or better through tonight and for most of the day Thursday...before subsiding late. Per wavewatch...seas will increase to as much as 8 to 10 feet over the central waters late tonight into Thursday before subsiding late Thursday as winds drop off quickly as high pressure builds east. Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... as of 320 PM Wednesday...winds diminish Thursday night and Friday as high pressure builds into the region. Wavewatch and local nwps in good agreement showing seas subsiding quickly Thursday night...and below 6ft by Friday morning. Moderate SW flow Friday night and Sat with high pressure offshore...generally winds 10-20kt and seas 2-4ft. A backdoor cold front is prognosticated to move S across the waters late Sat night or sun with north/NE winds increasing behind the front. Confidence remains low beyond Sat...especially with the strength of NE flow behind the front sun and possible low pressure lifting along the coast Sun night into Monday but strong small craft or gale force conditions will be possible bringing elevated seas. && Fire weather... as of 4 PM Wednesday...have issued a Fire Weather Watch for the entire County Warning Area for Thursday. Expect gusty west-northwest/northwest winds to combine with relative humidity values as low as 15 to 20 percent during Thursday afternoon. This will lead to enhanced fire danger area-wide. && Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... NC...Fire Weather Watch from Thursday morning through Thursday afternoon for ncz029-044>047-079>081-090>095-098-103-104. Wind Advisory until 6 PM EDT Thursday for ncz103-104.
