NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1257 PM EDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
a stationary front lingering along the coast of the southeast 
states will dissipate Monday. The next front will affect the area 
late this week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 1250 PM Sunday...sea breeze slowly working its way inland 
and a couple of showers have formed over downeast Carteret County. 
Per latest hrrr and ncar ensemble WRF...think precipitation will 
be isolated through the balance of the afternoon and evening and 
will keep only a slight chance pop over mainly the southeastern half 
of the County Warning Area. Temperatures already into the lower 90s in many spots 
and current forecast in good shape. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Monday/... 
as of 3 am sun...both models increase moisture from the south in 
response to broad upper trough along eastern Seaboard sharpening up. 
Will nudge probability of precipitation a bit further north and increase to chance south 
of a line from Oregon Inlet to Morehead City. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Saturday/... 
as of 3 am sun...GFS/ECMWF trending a bit wetter coast Monday into 
Monday night as moisture increases ahead of weak low lifting NE along 
remnant frontal boundary. For now kept probability of precipitation in chance range CST but 
if current model trends continue they may need to be increased in later 
forecasts. Deep inland looks mainly dry as best moisture stays along 
the CST. Highs Monday lower 90s inland to 80s CST with 70s areas wide 
Monday night. 


Main story for the Tuesday and Wednesday will be the heat as typical 
summertime pattern re-develops with high pressure offshore and 
strengthening trough inland. Heights build through middle week...with 
low level thickness values and 850mb temperatures supporting highs in the 
upper 80s/low 90s along the coast...and middle 90s/possibly a few 
upper 90s inland. For now forecast dewpoints keep apparent temperatures below 
105 but will be close to heat advry. Mainly slight chance probability of precipitation Tuesday 
and Wednesday with best chance CST early morning and inland during afternoon and 
evening. 


Chance of rain showers and thunderstorms and rain increase late week as upper trf develops to 
the west with weak cold front approaching from the northwest Thursday and stalling 
near the area Friday into Sat. Have chance probability of precipitation through the period. Will 
remain muggy however temperatures wont be quite a S hot with mainly upper 80s 
and lower 90s. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Sunday through Friday/... 
short term /through 18z Monday/... 
as of 1255 PM Sunday...pretty much a persistence forecast for 
aviation this taf cycle. Should see a few cumulus only the sea 
breeze with isolated convection possible at kewn and koaj. With 
increasing dewpoints tonight...will again see patchy areas of 
IFR/MVFR fog in the predawn hours on Monday. 


Long term /Mon through Thursday/... as of 3 am sun...decent covering 
of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain near CST Monday into Monday night but best bet for reduced 
ceilings/visibilities will be mainly east of terminals espcly isolated/pgv with poss 
some MVFR oaj/ewn. Mainly VFR Tuesday and Wednesday with limited precipitation and 
low level SW flow limiting fog/St threat. Could see better covering of 
rain showers and thunderstorms and rain Thursday ahead of next front with brief sub VFR poss 
mainly in the afternoon. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/ 
as of 1255 PM Sunday...winds starting to process of veering around 
to the southeast/S at the buoy sites and on the sounds. Winds speeds are 
uniformly 10 knots or less with seas in the 2 to 3 foot range with 
a bit of some long period swell over the northern waters. Winds 
become more S/SW tonight with some increase to 10 to 15 knots over 
the southern waters by morning. 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 3 am sun...south-southwest winds will increase Monday as weak low lifts NE 
along front/trf inland tightening gradient. Winds shld reach 15 to 20 
kts most waters Monday afternoon with seas building to 4 to 6 feet highest 
outer central and southern waters. South-southwest winds then expected at 10 to 20 kts 
rest of the forecast period as trf continues inland with high offshore. 
These winds will keep seas elevated espcly outer waters from hat S 
where will be mainly 5 to 6 feet.
