Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Beach Hazard Statement  Statement as of 11:17 am EDT on July 4, 2015


... Beach hazards statement in effect until 8 PM EDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
a beach hazards statement... which is in effect until 8 PM EDT
this evening.

* Hazards... high threat of rip currents.

* Location... all beaches south of Cape Hatteras.

* Timing and tides... the most likely time for strong rip currents
to occur is a few hours either side of low tide. Low tide will
be around 330 PM EDT this afternoon.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins... jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach patrol. Pay
attention to flags and posted signs posted near beach access
points and lifeguard stations.

If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the
force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach. Do not
attempt to swim directly against a rip current... since it can
exhaust and even kill the strongest swimmer.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
1132 am EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure moving across to the north will produce gusty 
southwest winds today. A weak front to the north will sag south 
again tonight then drift north of the region Sunday. High pressure 
will build over the area early next week. Rain may be heavy at 
times through Monday night with rainfall amounts between 1 to 2 
inches expected by Tuesday morning. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 1030 PM Saturday...dropped probability of precipitation all zones until early afternoon 
and reduced cloud cover to pc into middle afternoon. Gusty west-SW winds 
across area rest of today with low pressure moving across to the north 
with 12z mhx radiosonde observation indicating wrly wind around 45 knots up to 500 mb. 
Deep westerly flow generally inhibits convective activity or eastern 
NC...thus dropped probability of precipitation until afternoon. Latest mesoscale models continue to 
indicate scattered activity western and northern sections middle afternoon into early 
evening...thus maintained chance/scattered probability of precipitation but did reduce southern coastal 
sections to 20%. No change to temperatures. 


/Previous discussion/ 
as of 605 am Saturday...not much change to the upper and surface 
pressure patterns with a broad upper trough and weak meandering 
boundary now north of the region but poised to sag south again 
tonight before lifting north Sunday. Model runs from yesterday 
were indicating that the 4th of July would see a minimum of 
precipitation but now the 00z models are coming in a bit wetter. 
While not expecting a washout today, the coverage of of diurnal 
convection is expected to reach around 40% by late afternoon 
during peak heating. In the meantime expect only widely scattered 
showers and thunderstorms through about 16z. 


Weaker shear will inhibit storm organization so not expecting much 
of a severe threat today. Precipitable water values will remain around 2" so 
locally heavy rains will be the main concern with storms. 
Expecting much warmer temperatures today with SW flow and will 
forecast highs inland in the lower 90s per the met and European model (ecmwf) MOS. 
The mav (gfs) MOS looked too cool for highs. As a series of weak 
surface lows pass to the north of the region through this evening 
the tightening pressure gradient will lead to breezy/windy 
conditions today with winds gusting to 35 miles per hour at times. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Sunday/... 
as of 355 am Saturday...expecting diurnal convection to dissipate 
by late evening but with moist/unstable airmass entrenched across 
the area will need to hang on to slight chance probability of precipitation late. Lows 
will continue in the lower to middle 70s inland and middle to 
upper 70s beaches. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Friday/... 
as of 330 am Sat...a weak boundary will continue to gradually 
sink south into the northern forecast area...then stall Sunday 
night before lifting back to the north and washing out Monday. 
Increasing moisture and forcing sun as deepening upper trough 
approaches from the west. Weak front combined with 
seabreeze...lingering outflow/diff heating boundaries and 
shortwave energy to the north/west will result in scattered/numerous 
showers/thunderstorms Sun afternoon and evening. Will continue likely probability of precipitation 
across inland areas and chance along the coast. Isolated strong 
thunderstorms with gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall will be 
possible. 


Models show upper trough cutting off over the Ohio Valley Monday...then 
gradually north-northeast Monday night and Tuesday. Will continue chance probability of precipitation into 
Monday night...best chances inland...with good moisture and 
forcing...with deep upper trough in place. More of a typical 
summertime pattern returns Tuesday through late week...with high 
pressure offshore and troughing inland. Scattered diurnal convection 
expected each afternoon. Another weak frontal boundary will 
approach from the northwest late week. Isolated strong thunderstorms will be 
possible each afternoon/evening. Low level thickness values and 
850mb temperatures support highs near normal through the period...with 
highs in the middle 80s/low 90s and overnight lows in the 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 605 am Saturday...looks like coverage of diurnal showers 
and thunderstorms during the afternoon into evening will be 
greater than previously thought so a brief period of sub VFR 
conditions can be expected at the taf sites but due to the 
uncertainty of timing these events will need to forecast thunderstorms in the vicinity at 
this time. There will be a small threat for lower ceilings late 
tonight as the low levels remain moist but with no strong 
indication in the aviation guidance will leave out of the forecast. 
Winds will be gusting to 25 to 30 knots at times today in a tighter 
pressure gradient as low pressure passes by to the north. 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
as of 330 am Sat...pred VFR conditions expected through the taf 
period. Scattered/numerous showers and thunderstorms expected 
Sunday afternoon/evening...with periods of sub-VFR likely. 
Scattered diurnal convection expected each afternoon/evening Monday 
through Wednesday. Patchy stratus/fog possible each night/early morning. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 1030 PM Saturday...no changes with update. Gusty SW winds 
will persist through afternoon with low pressure moving across to north...with 
Small Craft Advisory winds/seas for southern and central waters. 


/Previous discussion/ 
as of 605 am Saturday...continue the small craft advisories. 
Windy conditions expected over the waters into this evening as a 
wave of low pressure slowly passes by to the north of the waters 
producing an enhanced SW flow, highest over the waters south of 
Oregon Inlet and over the Pamlico Sound. A weak front will drift 
south overnight and the pressure gradient will decrease leading to 
a slow diminishing trend in the winds overnight. Seas will build 
to 5 to 8 feet today and take most if not all of tonight to subside 
below 6 feet. 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
as of 330 am Sat...a weak boundary will continue to gradually 
sink south into the northern coastal waters...then stall Sunday 
night before lifting back to the north and washing out Monday. 
Models still differ slightly how far south the boundary will 
drop...but likely will make it into the northern Pamlico Sound and 
near Oregon Inlet by Sunday evening. Boundary will make wind 
directions tricky for sun and Sun night...with winds north of the 
front becoming north/NE 5-10kt and remaining SW 10-15kt ahead of the 
front. Pred S/SW flow 10-20kt returns by Monday afternoon and will 
continue through Wednesday. Seas 2-5ft through the period. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 8 am EDT Sunday for amz152-154-156. 
Small Craft Advisory until 2 am EDT Sunday for amz135. 
Small Craft Advisory until 11 PM EDT this evening for amz158.
