NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1235 am EDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will build in from the west through tonight. A dry 
cold front will move across the area Saturday night. High pressure 
builds over the area Sunday and will extend over the area through 
Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /today/... 
as of 1229 PM Friday...mainly clear skies across eastern North Carolina 
this afternoon with a few higher clouds possible as high pressure 
builds into the area. Temperatures in the lower to middle 60s at 
midday will increase to the upper 60s to near 70 through the 
afternoon. 


&& 


Short term /tonight/... 
as of 400 am Friday...high clouds with short WV will continue over 
area this evening...then clear overnight as it moves east. Dry airmass 
and calm winds will allow for slightly cooler min temperatures 
inland...near 40 for kdpl and koaj areas. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Thursday/... 
as of 345 am Friday...a shortwave will quickly move through eastern 
NC Saturday followed by a weak backdoor cold front Saturday night. 
High pressure at the surface and aloft will build over the region 
Sunday and persist through Monday before becoming shunted off the 
East Coast Tuesday...leading to dry conditions with a slight 
warming trend through the extended. A low pressure system will 
develop over the Great Lakes and move into southern Canada Tuesday 
night dragging a cold front through eastern NC late Wednesday 
night into Thursday. As is typical with day 6-7 systems...models 
diverge on timing of frontal system so will hold probability of precipitation to slight 
chance...and will maintain thunder Thursday as forecast soundings 
indicate weak instability and shear. Highs in the middle 70s Saturday 
through Monday then warning into the middle to upper 70s Tuesday into 
Wednesday. Lows mostly in the 50s except 60s near the water. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Friday through Tuesday/... 
short term /through 18z Saturday/... 
as of 1235 PM Friday...VFR conditions through the period with high 
pressure building in from the west. May see some higher level 
clouds...but otherwise clear skies expected. 


Long term /Friday night through Monday/... 
as of 350 am Friday...predominant VFR conditions expected through the 
long term as high pressure builds in from the west. Overall the 
airmass remains dry so do not expect any reductions in visibility or 
ceilings...although cannot completely rule out brief radiation fog 
in low spots and river valleys in the early mornings due to large 
water/land temperature contrasts. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 1232 PM Friday...northwest flow running around 15 knots over the 
northern waters...10 to 15 knots in the southern waters this 
afternoon with seas 3 to 5 feet. Will allow Small Craft Advisory to 
run to expiration in a couple of hours as may see some gusts to 25 
knots or seas to 6 feet in the northern or central waters as 
gradient remains fairly tight. 


Wind and seas will continue to diminish this afternoon and tonight. 
Northwesterly flow ahead of building high pressure will run 15 to 20 
knots tonight with seas 3 to 5 feet. 


Long term /Saturday through Thursday/... 
as of 355 am Friday...high pressure will build over the waters Saturday 
though a weak backdoor cold front will shift winds northwesterly 
late Saturday night into Sunday. Winds and seas will increase late 
Sat through Sunday behind the next dry cold front...then diminish 
again Monday. Excellent boating conditions expected Monday and 
Tuesday as surface flow becomes light and seas subside to 1-2 feet 
across most eastern NC waters. Another front will approach the 
region from the west Wednesday and cross the waters Thursday. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 3 PM EDT this afternoon for amz150- 
152-154.
