NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
649 am EDT Thursday Sep 3 2015 


Synopsis... 
a trough of low pressure across the Piedmont will move into eastern 
North Carolina today. A cold front will move through the region 
early Friday...with strong high pressure building into the area 
from the north through the weekend. A trough of low pressure will 
develop off the southeast coast early next week. 


&& 


Near term /today/... 
as of 645 am Thursday...latest surface analysis shows high pressure 
centered to the northwest with surface trough over central NC. Middle-level 
shortwave over the area will move off the coast late this morning 
and afternoon...while surface trough pushes into the region. Latest 
radar imagery shows convection has pushed offshore this morning. 
Patchy fog that has developed this morning should burn off quickly 
after sunrise. Scattered shower/thunderstorms expected to re-develop this 
afternoon...focused along the trough axis and seabreeze. Warm 
temperatures continue today. Low level thicknesses values support highs 
in the upper 80s to low 90s...similar to yesterday. 


&& 


Short term /tonight/... 
as of 315 am Thursday...a weak boundary will approach the region 
tonight...moving through early Friday morning. Convection should 
wane with loss of heating this evening though will continue SC 
pop. Overnight lows generally 70-75 degree. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Wednesday/... 
as of 330 am Thursday... 


Friday through Saturday... 
weak cyclonic flow aloft as a backdoor surface front propelled by 
strong upper ridge building to the north will support chance 
probability of precipitation/scattered showers through the period. Abundant low level 
moisture via onshore flow likely to result in a mainly diurnal 
driven precipitation cycle but cant totally rule out a few showers or 
even a thunderstorm at just about anytime. Above normal 
temperatures Friday will drop back on the strengthening Post 
frontal onshore flow Saturday. 


Sunday through Wednesday...uncertainty remains as NC will be 
between multilayer ridge building from the north/NE and an upper 
level low over the southeast and inverted surface trough off the coast. 
Meanwhile drier airmass will try to filter into the area on 
Sunday...but will need to keep at least a slight chance of 
precipitation...mainly for the afternoon. Models are indicating precipitation 
chances will increase on Monday and possibly into Tuesday as the 
broad upper low meanders over the southeast states and the inverted trough 
sharpens and moves toward the coast. By midweek, the upper low 
retrogrades and fills as an upper ridge builds off the southeast coast. 
This should lead to lessening precipitation chances and temperatures at or 
above normal. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Thursday through Monday/... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 645 am Thursday...patchy shallow fog will burn off quickly after 
sunrise this morning with pred VFR conditions returning. 
Scattered storms developing along a trough of low pressure this 
afternoon. Convection should wane with loss of heating this 
evening. Patchy fog possible again overnight and early Friday 
morning. 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
as of 330 am Thursday...a back door cold front will move through the area 
Friday bringing an increase of showers/thunderstorms and associated 
brief sub-VFR conditions. For the weekend and early next week, 
mainly VFR conditions outside early morning fog/stratus and 
scattered showers/isolated thunderstorms. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 645 am Thursday...overall benign conditions continue across the 
waters. Latest observation show variable winds 5-10kt and seas around 2 
feet. Variable winds directions today as surface trough moves into 
eastern NC...winds becoming North/East north of Oregon Inlet and SW south 
of Oregon Inlet. A weak cold front will approach the waters 
tonight...and moving through the waters early Friday morning. Seas 
through the period 1-3 feet. 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
as of 330 am Thursday...NW/north winds early Friday become NE and 
increase as a backdoor front moves through the area during the 
afternoon and evening. Small Craft Advisory may be needed as 
model guidance continues to suggest winds increasing to 15 to 20 
knots with higher gusts Friday night into Saturday with seas 
building 4 to 6 feet mainly for the northern waters. NE/east winds 
slowly decrease as the pressure gradient weakens later in the 
weekend into early next week. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...none.
