Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Coastal Flood Advisory, Beach Hazard Statement  Statement as of 9:18 am EDT on September 18, 2014


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this
evening...
... Coastal Flood Advisory in effect from 3 PM this afternoon to
8 PM EDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
a coastal Flood Advisory... which is in effect from 3 PM this
afternoon to 8 PM EDT this evening.

* Hazards... high threat of rip currents for beaches north of Cape
Hatteras.

* Coastal flooding... minor ocean overwash expected near the Rodanthe
S-curves to the temporary bridge.

* Timing and tides... the most likely time for dangerous rip
currents will be a few hours either side of low tide... which will
occur around 10 am today.

* Coastal flooding timing... minor ocean overwash will be possible
a few hours either side of high tide... which will occur around
4:30 t0 5:00 PM this afternoon.

* Impacts... motorists should be prepared for standing water from
minor ocean overwash near the Rodanthe S-curves to the Pea
Island temporary bridge.

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.

A coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

new rip current hazard...

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
842 am EDT Thursday Sep 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will continue to nose south over eastern North 
Carolina today. A weak cold front will pass through from the north 
tonight. The high will move east off the New England coast 
Saturday. Low pressure will move northeast Sunday just off the 
coast. A cold front will move through Monday. High pressure behind 
the front will pass by to the north Tuesday and Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /today/... 
as of 840 am Thursday...update to extend small craft advisories over 
the central coastal waters through early afternoon due to long 
period swells from distant Hurricane Edouard creating hazardous 
seas 4 to 6 feet. 


Previous discussion... 
as of 645 am Thursday...used a blend of the latest GFS/ECMWF/NAM for 
through the short term. Lingering boundary layer moisture in east 
to northeast flow will be enough for partly cloudy skies today but 
have kept the forecast dry. Forecast soundings look too dry to 
support convection. Highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s 
throughout. 


&& 


Short term /Friday/... 
as of 330 am Thursday...weak cold front will pass through late tonight 
but atmospheric conditions similar to today so no precipitation forecast. 
Lows in the lower 60s coastal plain to middle 60s South Coast and 
Outer Banks. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Wednesday/... 
as of 330 am Thursday...there is strong agreement in the medium range 
guidance with respect to the upper flow regime over the Continental U.S. 
During the period. To start the period the persistent eastern 
upper trough will briefly lift into zonal flow Friday into 
Saturday then amplification of the upstream western upper ridge 
Sunday will lead to amplification of the eastern upper trough with 
this pattern forecast to persist into the middle of next week. 
Temperatures are expected to be near or slightly below normal 
through the weekend due prevailing to easterly onshore flow. 
Monday could end up being the warmest day of the period with 
readings slightly above normal into the middle 80s as SW flow 
develops ahead of an approaching cold front...then below normal 
temperatures are expected behind the front Tuesday and especially 
Wednesday when highs will be forecast only in the 70s. 


At the start of the period surface high pressure will ridge south 
into North Carolina through Sunday as the center drifts south from 
New England into the Atlantic. Complicating the forecast is a wave 
of low pressure now forecast to develop and move northeast along a 
front stalled offshore Saturday and Sunday. This system could push 
moisture toward eastern NC mainly along the coast/east of Highway 
17/ for Saturday and Sunday. Looks like the axis of highest 
precipitation will remain offshore with a low threat for showers 
confined mainly to areas east of Highway 17. Thus will need to 
continue to carry slight chance primarily coastal probability of precipitation to account 
for this possibility. 


Latest GFS/European model (ecmwf) operational model runs are in decent agreement in 
speeding up the arrival of a cold front on Monday so have increased 
probability of precipitation to low chance for most areas by afternoon, and tapered probability of precipitation 
back more quickly Monday night. Models are also in good agreement 
with providing pleasant weather conditions Tuesday and Wednesday as 
surface high pressure builds to the north. 


&& 


Aviation /13z Thursday through Monday/... 
short term /through tonight/ 
as of 645 am Thursday...VFR in light northeast flow. Scattered-broken clouds 
around 5 kft today...becoming mostly clear this evening. 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
as of 330 am Thursday...mainly VFR expected on Friday. May see ceilings 
occasionally lower to MVFR levels (or lower) during the weekend 
given the persistent moist onshore low level flow. The best 
chances for lowered ceilings would be Saturday night through early Sunday 
as a nocturnal inversion strengthens overnight then wanes after 
sunrise Sunday. Monday afternoon an approaching cold front could 
trigger a few showers and thunderstorms with brief sub-VFR 
conditions as it crosses the region. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/ 
as of 840 am Thursday...updated forecast to include an extension of 
small craft advisories for the central waters due to persistent 
swells causing hazardous seas 4 to 6 feet. Diamond Shoals buoy 
continues at 6 feet...with 4 feet swells around 12-14 seconds. Seas 
will slowly dissipate later today. 


Previous discussion... 
as of 645 am Thursday...used a blend of the latest GFS/ECMWF/NAM for 
the short term. High pressure north of the Great Lakes today and 
tonight will maintain the northeast flow over the marine zones. 
Speeds generally 10-15 knots but a bit higher in the outer waters 
of the Oregon Inlet to Ocracoke zones. Wavewatch seas look more 
reasonable this morning. Small craft seas will end by 8 am so no 
change to the ending time of the advisory. Long period swell 
around 13 seconds today will slowly diminish to around 11 seconds 
late tonight. 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
as of 330 am Thursday...moderate northeast flow 15-20 knots associated 
with high pressure building into the waters from the north should 
build seas to at least 5-6 feet over portions of the outer coastal 
waters Friday into Saturday. Depending on the track and intensity 
of low pressure developing off the southeast coast, the pressure gradient 
may briefly weaken along the coast Saturday night and may allow 
winds to decrease and seas to subside below 6 feet for a time. 
However as winds back to the north and possibly increase again as 
the low tracks off the NC coast winds/seas may increase again to 
near Small Craft Advisory levels on Sunday. The low will track well NE of the area 
Sunday night with winds quickly backing to north/northwest and diminishing 
with subsiding seas. An approaching cold front will briefly 
produce 10 to 15 knots SW flow Monday. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 1 PM EDT this afternoon for amz152- 
154.
