NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
420 PM EDT Sat may 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
sprawling Bermuda high pressure will extend over the region from 
the east through the weekend. A cold front will approach from the 
northwest on Monday and gradually stall near the coast middle week. 
High pressure builds north of the area late in the week. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 
as of 333 PM Sat...the surface ridge will shift slightly farther 
away from the region tonight allowing surface winds to shift more 
south- southeasterly which will help to increase low level 
moisture. The high will remain in place however, which should 
yield enough subsidence to inhibit shower development overnight 
except for the coastal waters where guidance suggests showers may 
develop near the Gulf Stream and move towards the coast late 
tonight. Will maintain the slight chance probability of precipitation for the coastal 
waters tonight but keep dry elsewhere. Warm and muggy overnight 
temperatures again with lows in the middle 60s inland to near 70 coast. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday/... 
as of 333 PM Saturday...similar setup to Sunday as the summerlike 
pattern continues with Bermuda high continuing to ridge into east NC. 
Have added a 20 pop for areas away from the coast as weak 
convergence occurs with inland propagating sea breeze through the 
afternoon. Still enough subsidence to prohibit thunder however as 
weak capping exists. Temperatures very similar to Saturday and may even 
rise a degree or so higher...mid/upr 80s inland to low 80s 
beaches. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Saturday/... 
as of 330 PM Saturday...12z models continue to diverge and only 
moderate confidence for Sun night-Tuesday period and below normal 
confidence rest of period. Kept dry forecast for Sun night and lowered 
probability of precipitation Monday and Monday night. Highest probability of precipitation in 40-50% range Tuesday into 
Wednesday...then trended probability of precipitation toward climatology 20-30% rest of period. 


Models in general agreement with slower upper low movement Sun night 
through Tuesday resulting in slower surface front movement. Main 
difference rest of period with GFS indicating upper low opening up 
and gradually moving east across area next weekend with surface 
cyclogenesis off fla-NC coast. European model (ecmwf) keeps upper low cut off and 
pushes it S-southeast into eastern gulfmex Friday-Sat in response to upper ridging 
upstream. Used a compromise solution with thinking of surface front 
gradually moving into area Tue-Wed...then stalling near coast and 
becoming diffuse Fri-Sat. This supports best coverage of 
showers/thunderstorms Tuesday-Wednesday with a scattered mainly diurnal threat Thu-Sat. 


Monday likely to be warmest day with highs near 90 inland. Highs 
mainly low-middle 80s Tuesday-Wednesday with more cloud cover and better precipitation 
threat...then warming a few degrees end of week. Lows mainly 60s 
inland to around 70 coast. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Saturday through Thursday/... 
short term /through 18z Sunday/... 
as of 140 PM Sat...light south-southeasterly winds expected today 
with just isolated diurnally driven showers possible this 
afternoon and again Sun afternoon...not enough to include in tafs. 
Low level parameters indicating a small chance for broken IFR ceilings 
and or/visibilities overnight...though based on persistence from last 
several nights...will not include in tafs at this time and only hint at 
the development with a scattered IFR deck after around 06z. 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 330 PM Saturday...VFR conditions are expected to prevail 
through Monday morning with surface ridge extending over area from the 
E-NE. A cold front will approach on Monday and move slowly into the area 
Tuesday-Wednesday resulting in some periods of sub- VFR conditions with 
showers and thunderstorms. Best coverage expected Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Sunday/... 
as of 333 PM Sat...latest observation indicate southeast winds generally around 
10 knots across the waters with seas ranging from 2 to 4 feet. High 
pressure will continue to dominate the waters with southeast to S winds 5 to 
15 knots through Sunday. Local Swan/nwps and wavewatch iv in good 
agreement indicating seas mostly 2-3 feet with some 4-5 feet seas 
along the outer fringes of the central waters through tonight due 
to 9 to 10 second period swells radiating west away from weak 
area of low pressure well east of the region. 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 330 PM Saturday...moderate forecast confidence into Tuesday...then 
below normal confidence Wednesday-Thursday due to model differences. High 
pressure offshore and front approaching from west-northwest expected to produce 
southerly flow 10-15 knots Sun night into Tuesday. Front then expected to 
stall near coast Wednesday-Thursday with model differences on timing and 
location. Forecast will continue to indicate period of NE winds around 
10 knots late Wednesday into early Thursday...but low confidence forecast. Seas 
mainly 2-3 feet with some 4 feet heights outer portions at times.
