NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1035 PM EDT Sat Apr 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will move east along a stalled front across the area 
tonight then offshore Sunday...pulling a cold front through the 
area from the north. High pressure builds over the area early next 
week before another low pressure system affects the region during 
the middle of the week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Sunday morning/... 
light rain showers continue moving east to west over the forecast 
area which remains on the northern fringe of short wave energy and 
deeper moisture heading through the southeast states late this evening. 
Have kept probability of precipitation in the likely range all areas through midnight although 
most precipitation is expected to be light. Low pressure riding east 
along surface front across southern forecast area late this evening. 
Until the low emerges off the coast early Sunday morning, there 
will continue to be a chance of a few thunderstorms to develop in the 
warm sector over far southern forecast area. However the threat 
for severe storms is very low given weakening wind shear despite a 
brief surge in instability over far southern areas through 
midnight. 


The low moving off the coast will reinforce the high pressure wedge 
east of the mountains with low clouds and areas of fog remaining 
prominent overnight. Weakening convection moving east of the 
mountains will renew light precipitation chances late tonight 
into Sunday. Temperatures may fall a few degrees from current levels with 
lows from around 50 north to upper 50s S expected. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Sunday morning through 6 PM Sunday/... 
as of 300 PM Saturday...low pressure deepening offshore will pull cold 
front through area from north by early afternoon...and models indicate 
wdpsrd light quantitative precipitation forecast threat 12z-18z. Increased probability of precipitation to likely most of 
area for morning. Clouds and precipitation will hold temperatures to upper 50s northern 
sections while southern sections may reach upper 60s before frontal 
passage. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Saturday/... 
as of 3 PM Sat...surface high pressure will extend into the region 
from the northwest Sun night into Wednesday...while surface low pushes east-northeast off the 
NC coast Sun night and Monday. Precipitation will taper off quickly sun 
evening as low pushes further off the coast. Below normal temperatures 
expected through most of the period...with low level thickness 
values supporting highs in the 60s through Thursday...and lows in the 
low/middle 40s to middle 50s. Vert stacked low currently over the NE US 
will linger through the beginning of next week...gradually 
retrograding off the middle-Atlantic coast through mid-week. Pieces 
of upper level energy will rotate around the base of the upper low 
and trough Monday and Tuesday. Expect dry conditions Monday and Tuesday...though 
cannot rule out an isolated shower given the impulses moving 
through the flow aloft. 


Large model differences continue middle to late week...and below 
average confidence continues. An area of low pressure is expected 
to develop in the Gulf of Mexico Tuesday...then move up the southeast coast 
Wednesday into Thursday. European model (ecmwf) continues to develop a much stronger 
low...bombing out off the NC coast. While the GFS shows a much 
weaker low...keeping it suppressed further to the south of NC off 
the southeast coast. Will continue to follow trends of previous forecast 
and wpc...with a weak low moving off the coast late Wednesday into 
Thursday. Will continue to cap probability of precipitation at 50 percent Wednesday and Thursday 
given the continued uncertainty. Additional impacts could be felt 
across the region late week...dependent on eventual track and 
strength of the low. 


Temperatures gradually moderate Friday into the weekend...with surface high 
pressure building in from the west. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Sunday through Thursday/... 
short term /through 00z Monday/... 
a stalled front over southern forecast area will push slowly south 
overnight and reinforce high pressure wedge inland. Ceilings have 
been dropping through the MVFR range and into IFR thresholds as low 
levels continue to saturate late this evening. Guidance continues 
to suggest that ceilings remain in the IFR range overnight and 
likely reflects reality as nocturnal inversion strengthens in NE 
flow north of the stalled front. Expect only a gradual lifting of 
the lower ceilings on Sunday with improvement to MVFR possibly not 
until afternoon. 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 3 PM Sat...sub-VFR conditions expected to linger Sun night 
gradually improving by early Monday morning. Pred VFR Monday through 
Tuesday night. Increasing rain chances Wednesday and Thursday...with periods of 
sub-VFR possible as an area of low pressure will impact the 
region. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Sunday/... 
low pressure moving east along stalled boundary over far southern 
waters late this evening maintaining a light to moderate NE/east flow 
north of the boundary. The low moves off the coast early Sunday and 
gusty north/NE winds will develop and spread north to S over waters as 
low deepens offshore on Sunday. Used model blend toward weaker GFS 
and European model (ecmwf)...but will Post Small Craft Advisory for northern and central waters with 
frequent gusts to 25 knots likely in afternoon...and seas building to 4 to 
6 feet late. 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... as of 3 PM 
Sat...gusty northerly winds 15-25kt and elevated seas 4-7ft will 
start off the period Sun night. Surge gradually diminishing Monday 
morning with seas gradually subsiding to 3-5ft by early afternoon. 
Surface high pressure will build in from the northwest Sun night through middle- 
week. Gradient tightens Monday night into early Tuesday...and models in 
good agreement showing northwesterly surge 15-25kt with seas building up to 
6ft on the outer waters. Period of Small Craft Advisory conditions likely...mainly 
north of Ocracoke. 


Large model differences continue middle to late week...and below 
average confidence continues. An area of low pressure is expected 
to develop in the Gulf of Mexico Tuesday...then move up the southeast coast 
Wednesday into Thursday. Increasing winds and building seas Wednesday and Thursday. Ely 
flow by Wednesday afternoon...increasing to 10-20kt Wednesday night with seas 
2-4ft. Stronger winds expected Thursday with seas building to 4-6ft. 
Confidence remains lower than average for Wednesday and Thursday...but Small Craft Advisory 
conditions likely to develop with the potential for gales 
depending on eventual track and strength of low pressure.
