NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
612 PM EST sun Jan 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will approach from the west tonight then redevelop 
off the coast Monday. The low will deepen rapidly as it lifts 
northeast away from the area Monday night and Tuesday. High 
pressure will build in from the west Wednesday...then pass 
offshore Thursday. Another cold front will push through Thursday 
night or Friday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Monday morning/... 
as of 610 PM Sunday...Ridge offshore slowly weakening this 
evening. Clear skies will give way to increasing high clouds as 
potent upper level system approaches from the west. Temperatures 
will steadily fall through the evening but may level off late as 
the clouds increase. Lows mainly in the middle 30s inland to low 40s 
coast. No major changes to current forecast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Monday morning through 6 PM Monday/... 
interesting, transitional weather day as the strong upper system 
approaches during the morning then moves into the area during the 
afternoon. Overall forcing is limited for organized precipitation 
until later in the day as instability increases with the arrival 
of the cold pool aloft. Will have mostly slight to low chance probability of precipitation 
tomorrow with the highest chances over inland areas during the 
afternoon closer to the best incoming forcing. Low level thickness 
rises will support highs in the upper 50s tomorrow but backed off 
maximum temperatures a bit given expected (but at some times variable) cloud 
cover. Surface low develops off the coast late before rapidly 
deepening during later forecast periods. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Sunday/... 
as of 345 PM sun...a deep upper trough is positioned over the 
eastern Seaboard with surface low pressure centered off the NC/Virginia border 
at the start of the long term. The upper low quickly becomes 
negatively tilted with the surface low lifting toward New England and 
deepening rapidly as the system becomes vertically stacked off 
Cape Cod Tuesday. Across eastern NC...showers chances continue 
Monday night into Tuesday as moisture wraps around the system. Moisture 
rather limited and not anticipating much quantitative precipitation forecast however...generally 
less than a tenth of an inch liquid equivalent through Tuesday. Have 
chance probability of precipitation area-wide early Monday evening...then mainly NE sections 
after midnight and Tuesday as the parent low and deeper moisture 
shift northeast. Thermal profiles and critical thickness charts 
indicating precipitation remaining liquid through the evening...a 
transition to a rain/snow mix after midnight...then mainly snow 
through Tuesday morning. Precipitation will likely transition back to a 
rain/snow mix Tuesday afternoon as surface temperatures warm to around 40. Temperatures 
initially in the middle to upper 40s but steadily falls through the 
overnight as cold air advection persists...falling to the middle to upper 30s early 
Tuesday. Temperatures will generally remain the 30s Tuesday morning and only 
warming to around 40-45 Tuesday afternoon. With surface temperatures above 
freezing much or all of the period...current thinking is that 
impacts will be minimal with little to no snow accumulation. 
The Albemarle Sound region and the northern obx will have the best 
chance to see some light accumulation as this area will be under 
the deeper wrap around moisture the longest...but with the 
relatively warmer antecedent conditions any accumulation expected 
to be confined to grassy and elevated surfaces. With light quantitative precipitation forecast 
amounts...not expecting more than a dusting at any location. 


Moisture pulls offshore Tuesday night and Wednesday with dry conditions and 
mainly clear skies. High pressure builds into the region Wednesday/Wednesday 
night...then shifts offshore Thursday as the next clipper system 
approaches from the northwest. Lows Tuesday night and Wednesday night will 
be in the middle 20s inland to lower 30s along the coast. Highs Wednesday 
around 40-45 with about 5-7 degrees warming for Thursday. 


Confidence below average with a couple late period northern stream 
clipper systems as models not in best agreement with the strength 
and available moisture. The first system will move across the 
region Thursday night into Friday. The GFS is weaker and has limited 
moisture with this system while the European model (ecmwf) is deeper with the middle- 
level shortwave and taps more Gulf moisture and subsequently 
wetter across eastern NC. Keeping slight chance probability of precipitation with this 
system for now. High pressure builds across the area late Friday through 
Sat. Models not in best agreement with the following system that 
may impact the region sun. The GFS develops weak low pressure across 
the offshore waters and possibly precipitation impacting coastal 
sections...while the European model (ecmwf) doesn't't develop a low offshore with a 
dry clipper frontal passage sun. Temperatures for the long term expected 
to be below normal with mainly 40s for high...except Friday when 
temperatures expected to climb to the lower 50s central and southern 
sections. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Monday through Friday/... 
short term /through 18z Monday/... 
as of 610 PM Sunday...clear skies across the forecast area...but 
will see increasing high clouds after midnight as potent upper 
system approaches from the west. Ceilings gradually lower during 
the day Monday as deep moisture increases from the west and expect 
possible MVFR conditions to develop by late in the day with some 
patchy light rain during the late afternoon/early evening hours. 


Long term /Monday night through Thursday/... 
as of 345 PM sun...isolated/scattered showers Monday night...with 
the potential for light snow to mix in late Monday night into 
Tuesday morning. Little to no accumulation expected with best 
chances for light accumulation northeast of the terminals. Periods 
of sub-VFR likely Monday night into early Tuesday...then gradually 
improving to pred VFR Tuesday afternoon through Thursday. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Monday/... 
as of 610 PM Sunday...light southeast/S winds continue over the coastal 
waters and sounds with the highest values over the northern areas 
including the Albemarle Sound. Seas continue at 2 to 4 feet with 
about a 10-11 second rolling swell. Winds will become more 
southwest after midnight and pick up to 10 to 15 knots over the 
coastal waters ahead of surface low developing along the coast later 
tonight. The low deepens and moves NE Monday with winds becoming 
west/northwest and increasing to near Small Craft Advisory levels late in 
the day. 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
as of 345 PM sun...unsettled conditions expected on the waters 
through mid-week. Strong upper level system will be along the East 
Coast with low pressure centered off the NC/Virginia coast. The surface low 
will rapidly deepen and move up the middle-Atlantic coast Monday 
night. North-northwest winds will remain strong...15-25kt gusts 30-35kt...through 
midweek as low deepens to the northeast and reinforces the 
pressure gradient along the NC coast. Small Craft Advisory conditions expected to 
develop Monday night and continue into Wednesday. Winds will begin 
to diminish and back to the west/SW as surface high pressure shifts 
offshore late Wednesday night and Thursday. The potential for Small Craft Advisory 
conditions return late Thursday night and Friday as another clipper 
system moves across the region. 


Used a blend of wavewatch and local nwps as the nwps is usually 
overdone in northwest flow situations. Seas will build to 4 to 6 feet north Monday 
evening then build further to 6 to 9 feet Tuesday...highest central and 
northern waters before gradually subsiding through Thursday. 


With persistent gusty northwesterly flow...Monday night through Wednesday... 
could result in minor water level rises for sound-side areas of the 
Outer Banks adjacent to the Pamlico Sound. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
minor flooding continues along the Neuse River in Kinston and 
contenea creek near Hookerton through early next week. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...none.
