NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1211 am EDT Wednesday Jul 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
a typical Summer time pattern is expected for the rest of the 
week with high pressure offshore and a trough of low pressure to 
the west. A frontal boundary will sag into the area late week and 
linger near eastern North Carolina through the weekend. High 
pressure will build over inland areas by late next weekend through 
early next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Wednesday morning/... 
as of 1210 am Wednesday...convection rapidly diminished as approached 
eastern NC and now just have left over debris type rain showers over far northwest 
tier. There is still some weak instability...espcly CST and short wave 
crossing to the north so will keep slight pop in next few hours all 
areas then CST late. Lows will range from near 70 deep inland to 
upper 70s beaches. Gusty SW winds central/southern beaches shld diminish 
a bit late. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Wednesday morning through 6 PM Wednesday/... 
as of 315 PM Tuesday...expect subsidence in the wake of the early 
morning short wave passage to suppress most convection until late 
in the day. Some isolated activity along the inland moving 
seabreeze cant totally be ruled out Wednesday afternoon so will keep a slight 
chance pop, although most areas will be warm and dry. Highs mainly 
lows 90s with upper 80s at the beaches. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Tuesday/... 
as of 315 PM Tuesday...unsettled pattern through the long term. Broad 
upper trough sharpens at times as numerous short waves move through 
the flow. Forecast area will be in between axis of Bermuda high to 
the south and frontal boundary in the vicinity of the NC/Virginia 
border. Scattered to likely probability of precipitation each day through Sunday. The 
front will begin to lift back north early next week so only chance 
probability of precipitation throughout. 


&& 


Aviation /04z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
short term /through 00z Thursday/... 
as of 1210 am Wednesday...high confidence in mainly VFR conditions 
though the taf period. Widespread high level debris clouds over 
region currently but these shld diminish later. Hrrr shows some 
lower ceilings approaching coastal plain toward daybreak but generally 
keeps it just west of tafs and with other guidance not showing much 
will not have any lower clouds in. Models show limited if any 
convection today so mainly expecting some scattered cumulus. 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/ 
as of 315 PM Tuesday...scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms 
through the period with locally lower ceilings/visibilities at all 4 
terminals. Southwest flow through the period generally 10-15 knots 
by day and less than 10 knots at night. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Wednesday/... 
as of 1210 am Wednesday...no changes as gusty winds continue over central waters 
and Pamlico Sound...these winds forecast to diminish later tonight 
so Small Craft Advisory will end Pamlico late. 


Previous discussion...gradient will remain fairly tight over the 
region tonight with continue SW winds 15 to 20 kts...poss some gusts 
to 25 knots during evening. These increasing winds will lead to seas 
building to 3 to 5 feet with 4 to 6 foot seas expected to develop 
central waters tonight and continue Small Craft Advisory from lookout to Oregon Inlet through 
Wednesday. 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of 315 PM Tuesday...southwest flow will be the rule through the 
long term. Models continue to show frontal boundary lingering in 
the vicinity of the Virginia/NC border with the axis of the Bermuda high 
to the south. Winds will remain below small craft levels...but 
wave models continue to show 4-6 foot seas into the weekend for 
the waters from Oregon Inlet to Cape Lookout. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 8 PM EDT Sunday for amz152-154. 
Small Craft Advisory until 8 am EDT Sunday for amz156. 
Small Craft Advisory until 8 am EDT Wednesday for amz135.
