NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1022 PM EDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure northeast of the area will lift slowly away from area 
with high pressure building in by Thursday night. A dry cold front 
will move through the area Saturday. High pressure will build over 
the area late Saturday and remain through midweek. 


&& 


Near term /until 8 am Thursday morning/... 
as of 1015 PM Wednesday...made some minor tweaks this update to lower 
probability of precipitation across portions of the northeastern County Warning Area...keeping low chance 
of a shower mainly over the waters the remainder of the night. 
Also increased cloud cover as some low stratus has developed 
across the northeastern County Warning Area from the Albemarle Sound region 
through Cape Hatteras. This low clouds will gradually erode 
towards morning. Strong deepening low pressure will continue to 
drift NE away from the region off the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia peninsula 
overnight. This will keep strong gusty winds overnight across 
coastal areas...especially across the Outer Banks. Inland winds 
have let up considerable. Overcast conditions will begin to clear 
overnight from the southwest to the northeast gradually overnight. 
With cloud cover diminishing and winds becoming light inland we 
will experience a chilly night with low temperatures dropping into 
the middle 40s inland...but remaining in the middle 50s along the 
coast. 


&& 


Short term /8 am Thursday morning through 6 PM Thursday/... 
as of 149 PM Wednesday...areas will continue under northwesterly flow 
Thursday as low pressure continues to lift up the coast and high 
pressure builds to the west. Skies will be mainly clear with dry 
atmosphere allowing temperatures to rise into the upper 60s area 
wide. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 300 PM Wednesday...models remain in good agreement and 
consistency with previous forecast during period...with a dry pattern 
into the middle of next week. 


Weak ridging surface and aloft across area Thursday night and Friday in 
between departing upper low to NE and clipper short WV diving in from 
northwest. Short WV will produce dry cold front passage early 
Sunday...followed by more high and dry conditions Sun night into 
Wednesday. Temperatures near normal...lows in 40s except 50s obx and highs around 
70...through Monday...then warming to 5-10 degrees above normal by Wednesday. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Thursday through Monday/... 
short term /through Thursday/... 
as of 1015 PM Wednesday...high confidence in prevailing VFR 
conditions through the period most locations. A middle level stratus 
deck is diminishing with the loss of daytime heating and departing 
moisture. Portions of the area have cleared and expect the 
majority of the area to become mostly clear by morning with the 
exception of the far northeast. Along the northeast County Warning Area from the 
Albemarle Sound region through Cape Hatteras a layer of MVFR 
stratus has developed but expect it to gradually erode towards 
morning. After sunrise tomorrow it will be mostly clear across the 
area. Northwest winds will become gusty again by the afternoon. It will 
not be quite as gusty as today but still in the 15 to 20 knots range. 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 300 PM Wednesday...predominant VFR conditions expected through the 
long term. High pressure will build in from the west through the 
period with an overall dry airmass thus do not expect reductions in 
visibility or ceilings...although cannot completely rule out brief 
radiation fog in low spots and river valleys in the early mornings 
due to large water/land temperature contrasts. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Thursday/... 
as of 1015 PM Wednesday...no significant changes this update. Small 
craft advisories remain in effect for north of Cape Lookout and 
the sounds. Main feature is tight gradient around departing strong 
low pressure off the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia peninsula overnight. Expect 
sustained winds around 30 knots over the far northeastern waters 
overnight. Expect a few gusts to at or above gale force for a 
brief period but decided not to raise a Gale Warning for this 
short duration event. Regardless conditions on the waters will be 
quite treacherous overnight with seas 7 to 10 feet likely across 
the waters from around Cape Hatteras north. Lighter winds south of 
Cape Lookout will remain below 25 knots for the most part although 
far outer waters off lookout could briefly reach 25 knots tonight. 
This will be a short period so kept the area out of the advisory 
but seas will still be 3 to 5 feet and can't rule out an 
occasional 6 foot wave well off lookout early tonight. Blended a 
bit of the latest nwps wave heights into current forecast to temper 
its seas a bit through tonight. 


Low will continue to lift away from the area Thursday...but will 
continue to deepen as it moves through the New England 
waters...keeping a fairly tight gradient over the North Carolina 
waters through the day on Thursday. West to northwest flow will 
continue at 20 to 25 knots in the northern waters through the day 
with seas 6 to 8 feet. 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 300 PM Wednesday...latest models generally support previous forecast. 
Winds and seas will diminish Thursday night and Friday with middle Atlantic surface low 
moving out to NE. Winds and seas will increase again late Sat 
through Sunday with another dry cold front moving through from 
northwest...then diminishing again Monday. 


Blend of previous forecast and ww3 used for seas...as nwps just came in 
and looks a bit overdone. Heights expected to subside below 6 feet 
early Friday...and to 2-3 feet by early Saturday. Heights building 
again to 3-5 feet Sat night and Sunday...then subsiding Monday.
