NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
345 PM EDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will drop south through the region late t0night. 
High pressure will build north of the region late Wednesday into 
Wednesday night then pass offshore Thursday. A cold front will 
approach from the west late Friday and cross the region early 
Saturday. High pressure will build in from the northwest Sunday 
and move offshore early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 215 PM Tuesday...a surface low will track southeast through 
the Middle-Atlantic States and off the Delaware/New Jersey coast this evening 
with a cold front moving through eastern NC after midnight 
tonight. A strong shortwave will move through the Middle- Atlantic 
States and off southern New England overnight...well north of 
eastern NC. Limited moisture will be associated with the front thus dry 
conds expected. Winds will shift north after midnight behind the 
front and may gust upwards of 25 miles per hour along the Outer Banks late. 
Lows tonight will range from the middle to upper 40s. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday/... 
as of 215 PM Tuesday....dry and sunny for Wednesday with weak high pressure 
building in from north behind the front. Below normal temperatures expected 
Wednesday with a cool air mass in place. Temperatures will range from the lower 
to middle 60s inland western areas to the 50s across eastern sections. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Tuesday/... 
as of 345 PM Tuesday...roller coaster temperature ride through 
the long term with mainly dry conditions except on Friday night 
into Saturday morning associated with a cold frontal passage. 


Wednesday night into Thursday...dry period expected with weak high pressure 
dominating the weather. Very dry airmass and calm winds/clear 
skies Wednesday night allow for excellent radiational cooling. Lows drop 
into the middle/upper 30s inland to near 40 coast but think temperatures 
should be warm enough to preclude frost mention at this time. Return 
southerly flow on Thursday as high shifts off the East Coast and 
pleasant afternoon highs in the 70s (60s beaches) with low 
humidity values. 


Thursday night into Friday...trended dry Thursday night as weak short wave 
swings through but no moisture available to work with. Maintained 
the slght chance thunder mainly away from the coast on Friday as 
moisture return increases and could be weak forcing along sea 
breeze front. Main story Friday though will be gusty SW winds 
20-25 knots and very warm temperatures as most locales climb into the low 
80s inland (upr 60s/low 70s beaches). 


Friday night into Sat...forecast thinking remains generally the same with 
strong cold front pushing through east NC this period. Warm and 
breezy Friday night with lows generally in the low 60s. Minor timing 
differences with frontal passage...with 31/12z GFS slightly faster than the 
deterministic CMC/ECMWF. Will side with the slightly slower solution 
and have highest probability of precipitation very late Friday night into first half of Sat. 
Maintained the 50 probability of precipitation with scattered shower/isolated thunder wording due to 
convective nature of precipitation. Instability/lapse rates are rather 
weak so no severe ts expected though strong southwesterly jet overnight 
Friday night will produce isolated thunder embedded in heavier showers. 
Quickly drying after around noon Sat with front racing offshore 
and skies becoming sunny west to east. Highs should reach the upper 
60s/low 70s most areas. 


Sat night through early next week...broad high pressure will move 
across area at surface with mainly zonal flow aloft. Lows upper 30s/low 
40s Sat night with highs near 60 north obx to upper 60s SW zones. 
Warming trend early next week as steadily building heights and 850mb 
temperatures pushes temperatures back above climatology. It will be mainly dry through 
the period...though GFS appears to be suffering from some 
convective feedback with fast moving southern stream shortwave 
propagating through mean flow on Tuesday. Will keep forecast dry at this time. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
short term /tonight and Wednesday/... 
as of 1215 PM Tuesday...VFR conditions will prevail through the 
period as high pressure shifts offshore and a moderate 
southwesterly pressure gradient develops this afternoon. Southwest 
winds becoming gusty this afternoon to 25 knots ahead of a cold 
front approaching from the northwest. The front should shift 
through eastern NC after 06z Wednesday without impacts on aviation 
except for a wind shift to north late tonight. High pressure builds in 
for Wednesday with northerly winds gusting to 15 knots after 12z. 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of 345 PM Tuesday...VFR expected to prevail through Friday. Gusty 
SW winds 15-25 knots on Friday/Friday night ahead of strong cold front. 
Period of sub- VFR conditions likely late Friday night into Sat 
morning with scattered showers/isolated thunder ahead of the front. VFR 
returning by Sat afternoon with clearing skies. The VFR will 
likely last through the beginning of the week. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /tonight and Wednesday/... 
as of 215 PM Tuesday...high pressure will shift off the 
southeastern U.S. Coast this afternoon with southwesterly throughout. 
Low pressure will move east through the Middle-Atlantic States allowing 
the SW pressure gradient to increase building winds and seas to 
Small Craft Advisory levels. SW winds will increase 15-25 knots 
late this afternoon and continue overnight. Small Craft Advisory continues for the coastal 
waters including the Pamlico Sound. Seas will build to 6 feet for 
the southern and central outer waters in SW flow...then seas continue above 
6 feet tonight with Post-frontal northerly wind shift for the central and 
northern waters through most of Wednesday. 


Long term /Wednesday night through Saturday/... 
as of 345 PM Tuesday...high pressure building over the waters Wednesday 
night will bring tranquil conditions. Winds will become srly and 
increase to 15-20 knots Thursday as high moves offshore. Small Craft Advisory conditions 
likely again Thursday night into Sat. SW winds 20-30 knots in tightened 
pressure gradient ahead of cold front...peaking Friday night/early Sat 
morning. The SW winds switch to the northwest and remain gusty first half 
of Sat before slowly diminishing. Some minor timing differences in 
pushing front through...with GFS slightly faster than the 
CMC/European model (ecmwf) global models...though all models indicate the front 
being offshore by 18z Saturday. Seas will peak at 8-11 feet late 
Friday night/early Sat morning...then slowly subside thereafter. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory from 8 PM this evening to 1 PM EDT 
Wednesday for amz135-156-158. 
Small Craft Advisory until 7 PM EDT Wednesday for amz152-154. 
Small Craft Advisory from 5 am to 3 PM EDT Wednesday for 
amz150.
