NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
252 PM EDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will extend south into the area tonight then slide 
offshore Saturday. A warm front will lift north through the area 
Saturday night. Another cold front will move through Monday night 
and Tuesday. A series of low pressure systems will affect the 
area Wednesday into Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 230 PM Friday...stratus is finally lifting and eroding and 
expect most sites will see some sun this afternoon. With high pressure 
nosing in from the north expect partly cloudy to mostly clear skies 
through the evening. Later tonight light onshore flow will lead to 
increasing low level moisture and likely another round of stratus 
and some patchy fog late. Lows will range from low/middle 50s north to 
middle/upper 50s S. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday/... 
as of 230 PM Friday...moisture will gradually increase over the 
region Sat with SW flow ahead of next approaching upper trf. 
Precipitation water values around 1 inch early will increase to around 
1.5 inches inland during the afternoon. Forcing looks minimal over 
the region so only have a slight chance of rain showers inland during the 
afternoon where moisture is highest. Not expecting much sun Sat with 
low clouds early and increasing middle/high clouds...shld see enough 
for highs low/middle 70s SW to low/middle 60s NE. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Friday/... 
as of 245 PM Friday... 


The middle level ridge anchored across the eastern Continental U.S. Will start 
eroding at the beginning of the period with a prolonged trough 
pattern setting up for the remainder of the long term. This will 
mean active weather for a good portion of next week as a series of 
middle level impulses interact with surface features. Will try to break it 
down below with the highest confidence Saturday night through 
Wednesday. However, given such variability in the model solutions, 
especially aloft, confidence starts to drop a bit after Tuesday. 


Saturday night through Monday night: the middle level ridge breaks down 
to a more zonal flow through this period with shortwaves riding just 
west and north of the area. With an eroding cad to the west Saturday 
night into early Sunday, feel any overrunning precipitation from 
isentropic lift will be confined to central NC with very little 
activity across even the interior portions of the area. As return 
flow increases Sunday, so too will the cloud coverage and 
precipitation activity. Given middle level lift/impulses crossing in 
the afternoon and sufficient instability at the sfc, some storms may 
become strong to possibly even severe. Temperatures will climb to around 80 
inland to around 70 along the obx. A brief reprieve Sunday night 
ahead of a front approaching from the south. Precipitation chances 
increase Monday morning with the front making its way through the 
northern tier Monday night. Given continued return flow and 
increasing thicknesses, albeit with precipitation/cloud coverage, 
feel temperatures will climb into the lower 80s inland to middle 70s along the 
obx. 


Tuesday through wednesday: models starting to come into better 
agreement at this juncture as the backdoor front tries to cross the 
area, only to become stalled and either bisects or move just south 
of eastern NC Tuesday. Given model continuity, have sided with the 
Euro and brought the front through by Tuesday afternoon. This 
boundary will act as an axis of moisture/surface low development. We 
need to keep in mind that the exact placement of this front and the 
subsequent upper level trough will certainly dictate the weather 
pattern during this time. So any meander of the front will likely 
impact precipitation/weather type and temperatures. Expect waves of low pressure to 
ride this boundary meaning precipitation will occur off and on, with 
the exact timing of the better coverage harder to Pin Point at this 
time. However, with a potent shortwave riding the trough as it 
approaches the Carolinas Tuesday night into Wednesday, there will 
likely be a period of time of heavier rain as a strong low develops 
at the surface. The timing of this feature looks a bit ambiguous at 
this point, but the fact that multiple models are picking up on this 
feature gives more credibility. So have upped probability of precipitation Tuesday and 
especially into Wednesday. With the stalled front across this area, 
temperature will be very tricky with model spread on these values 
quite substantial. As of right now, have temperatures topping out in the 
upper 60s/low 70s given norther flow behind the front. 


Thursday through friday: the potent surface low should continue to exit 
the area. Given the very deep trough, albeit cut off upper level 
low, we may see continued cloud cover and enough lift to get some 
wrap around light rain Thursday into Thursday night. Some models 
hint at this continuing into Friday as the upper low becomes 
somewhat stalled across the eastern Continental U.S.. high pressure to the 
west tries to edge into the area by late Friday. Temperatures should be 
close to climatology and possibly even cooler. But feel with subsidence, 
middle 70s is a good bet at this point. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Friday through Wednesday/... 
short term /through Sat/... 
as of 1215 PM Friday...the persistent stratus is beginning to erode 
from all sides so think shld lift to MVFR next 1 to 2 hours then 
scattered out to VFR later this afternoon. VFR will then continue through this 
evening. Overnight with light east-northeast flow guidance is indicating 
another round of IFR stratus along with some fog and will show 
this in forecast. On Sat will see IFR gradient lift to MVFR...however 
decent amount of moisture around Sat so ceilings may bounce between 
MVFR and VFR much of the day. Any precipitation Sat shld be quite 
light/scattered so not adding to to tafs. 


Long term/Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 245 PM Friday...an active weather pattern will develop 
across the area through the period. A surface low to the northwest 
will move north of the area Sunday instigating moist southerly 
flow across the area. Shower and thunderstorm development in the 
afternoon is expected with better coverage across the western taf 
sites. Precipitation chances increase again Monday as a backdoor 
cold front to the north approaches the area. The front becomes 
stalled south of the area Tuesday through Wednesday. This boundary 
will act as an axis of moisture for surface lows to ride. A more 
potent low will likely cross Wednesday with some rain during this 
time. It should be noted that confidence is a bit below normal 
given that the exact placement of the surface front and the upper 
level features are just now coming into better agreement. Either 
way, VFR conditions area expected through a portion of the taf 
period, but given such an active period, anticipating sub-VFR 
conditions off and on. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Sat/... 
as of 230 PM Friday...high pressure will extend S into the region 
tonight then slowly slide offshore Sat. This will lead to continue 
mainly north to NE winds 10 to 15 kts through the period. Seas will continue 
at 2 to 4 feet with poss some 5 footers outer central and northern 
waters Sat. 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 245 PM Friday...a very active weather pattern during this 
period. Return flow will develop Sunday and continue Monday as a 
system moves to our north. This will increase winds 10-15kts and 
seas will build 3 to 5 feet by Monday. A backdoor front will cross 
the area by Tuesday afternoon with north winds behind it. The 
surge behind this front does not look particularly strong as the 
upper level trough has not crossed the area. The GFS/wwatch is 
indicating a more potent shortwave/surface low to cross Wednesday 
which would mean increasing southerly flow and building seas. 
However, have sided with the Euro keeping lighter north winds in 
place through the remainder of the period with a series of surface 
lows moving through the area. Seas 3 to 4 feet.
