Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 700 PM EST Monday Dec 22 2014 Synopsis... high pressure will build into the area from the north tonight and Tuesday. A strong cold front will approach from the west Tuesday night and cross the region on Wednesday. High pressure builds to the south of the area through the end of the week. Another cold front will approach the area this weekend. && Near term /until 6 am Tuesday morning/... as of 7 PM Monday...large area of rain will brush by the southern coastal waters over the next couple of hours. Have adjusted probability of precipitation down all areas and removed all mention of thunder. A strong frontal inversion will persist bringing areas of drizzle and some fog overnight. Dont think dense fog will be an issue as there will be some wind. Temperatures will not cool too much from their current readings of the middle 40s inland to upper 40s/low 50s coast. && Short term /6 am Tuesday morning through 6 PM Tuesday/... as of 303 PM Monday...lingering fog and drizzle may be an issue through the morning hours as strong frontal inversion hangs on. There may be a lull in rain on Tuesday as weak high pressure continues to ridge south through east NC. However... continuing warm air advection aloft and 850-925mb moisture transport will keep a stream of steadily increasing precipitable waters into east NC. Therefore have an increasing chance of rain showers through the day...though best chances will still come later on Tuesday night. Have left a mention of thunder in grids as elevated instability will be present. Another wide range of temperatures expected... as inland areas will be stuck under the inversion all day and struggle into the lower 50s. Further east towards the coast...light southeast flow will allow for warming temperatures here with highs expected into the lower 60s. && Long term /Tuesday night through Monday/... expect unsettled weather through Wednesday night perhaps lingering along the immediate coast early Christmas morning as a rather wet system is poised to affect much of the eastern US during this period. The forecast Tuesday night is tricky as initially insitu damming will be occurring with widespread low clouds and patchy drizzle. A warm front is forecast to begin to lift north across the area during the early evening. A non diurnal temperature curve will occur with lows occurring early Tuesday evening then temperatures rising in the southerly flow in the warm sector behind the warm front. Widespread rain is expected Tuesday night especially through midnight then may begin to see precipitation tapering off to more showery nature in the warm sector toward daybreak Wednesday. The area will be in the warm sector Wednesday with widespread showers and possible thunderstorms as a high shear/Low Cape environment prevails across the Carolinas. If any instability is realized this could mean a small chance of strong to severe storms...with the main threats being damaging wind gusts or an isolated tornado. This system also has the potential to produce heavy rainfall as precipitable waters rise to near climatology maximum. One to two inches of rain will be likely to fall through Wednesday night with localized 3 inch amounts possible. Temperatures will be quite warm Wednesday reaching into the low 70s away from cooling onshore flow in the afternoon. Winds will be quite gusty on Wednesday and nearing Wind Advisory criteria for coastal counties as the southerly flow strengthens. Could also see some sea/advection fog along the coast as the very warm, moist air travels over the cooler near shore shelf waters. This would dampen high temperatures further along the coast if it would to occur. May have to contend with a few showers early Christmas (thursday) morning as movement of the cold front has continue to slow in recent model runs. Thursday afternoon through Saturday expect transient upper ridge and surface high pressure to build across the region from the southwest producing dry and cooler conditions for Christmas day. It will still be gusty in a tight westerly gradient Thursday. Temperatures will be near climatology behind the front for Christmas day and Thursday night as upper trough moves off the East Coast. Low level thickness values support highs warming into the upper 50s and lower 60s Friday and Saturday but a bit cooler near the beaches. Model timing and strength issues continue with a potential cold front passage later in the weekend. The deterministic runs of the GFS would suggest a quicker/drier frontal passage Saturday night while the European model (ecmwf) signals a slower frontal passage and a potential wet latter half of the weekend. While awaiting model consistency, have pushed back slight chance probability of precipitation into Saturday night and Sunday with slightly cooling temperatures. Both models suggest a return of surface high pressure and zonal flow aloft very early next week. && Aviation /00z Tuesday through Saturday/... short term /through 18z Tuesday/... as of 7 PM Monday...area of rain on the radar will stay to the south of area terminals. Only expect scattered light showers and drizzle overnight along with widespread LIFR. North winds expected through much of the period. Visibilities improving only slowly through the morning with a bit more mixing. Ceilings may not lift above LIFR. Currently feel that inland sites may lift first by middle morning. North winds will slowly veer through the day Tuesday. Overall...a very unpleasant aviation forecast. Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... IFR conditions look to continue into Tuesday night due to insitu damming associated with surface high pressure centered to the north making it difficult to scour out remaining low level moisture. A warm front lifts through the area Tuesday night but low levels remain near saturation so any improvement in flying conditions may be short-lived, especially with increasing rain chances again ahead of a cold front Wednesday into Wednesday evening. Winds will be quite gusty out of the south ahead of the front on Wednesday...then switching to west and gusty later Wednesday night and Thursday. Dry high pressure producing predominate VFR conditions returns to the area behind the cold front Thursday through Saturday. && Marine... short term /through tonight/... as of 7 PM Monday...have allowed Small Craft Advisory south of Ocracoke to expire at 7 PM...with advisories continuing over remainder of coastal waters. It will take longest for seas to subside across the northern waters. Light north winds all areas tonight behind the low pressure system and building weak high pressure to the north. Wind will slowly become NE then east on Tuesday as high pressure moves eastward. Seas will be on the low end mainly 2 to 4 feet on Tuesday. Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... hazardous marine conditions are expected beginning Tuesday night and continuing into Thursday night as a large area of low pressure affects the eastern US. A warm front will move north through the waters Tuesday night with winds veering to the south and increasing to 20 to 25 knots. A strong cold front will then approach the area Wednesday and cross the region late Wednesday night into early Thursday. The southerly winds will increase to 20 to 30 knots Wednesday and Wednesday evening ahead of the cold front before becoming westerly 20 to 25 knots late Wednesday and Thursday behind the front. Seas respond by building and peaking at 8-12 feet Wednesday night (per swan). The models continue to suggest that low end gales in gusts will be possible Wednesday into Wednesday night. Winds/seas will begin to decrease as high pressure builds into the area late Thursday. More benign marine weather conditions will highlight Friday into early Saturday. SW winds will begin to pick up ahead of a cold front Saturday afternoon. && Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... NC...none. Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 10 PM EST this evening for amz152- 154. Small Craft Advisory until 1 am EST Tuesday for amz150. && $$ Synopsis...tl near term...hsa/tl short term...tl long term...btc aviation...hsa/Lep/btc marine...hsa/tl/btc
