NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
724 am EDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


Synopsis... 
a weak cold front will remain nearly stationary over eastern 
North Carolina today. The front will gradually lift back north of 
the region tonight and Saturday. Offshore high pressure will 
dominate over the weekend into early next week. A cold front will 
approach from the north middle to late next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
surface front bisects the forecast area early this morning. Small 
areas of weakening convection continue to drop southeast along and north 
of the surface front in an area of weakly divergent northwest flow and deeper 
moisture. Short range model guidance remains consistent in moving 
these areas of scattered precipitation across northern portions 
of the forecast area during the remainder of the morning. 


The surface front will remain over the area today and will further 
become a focus for isolated to scattered convection during peak 
heating this afternoon despite overall lack of upper forcing. Will 
cap probability of precipitation at low chance most areas this afternoon. Could see some 
brief heavy rain given the high precipitable water but severe 
thunderstorm chances will be limited by weak instability. 


The front and the expectation of more clouds over northern areas 
will produce a tight gradient of maximum temperatures this afternoon with 
middle 80s over northern areas and low 90s over the south away from 
the coast. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Saturday/... 
upper ridge builds over the area tonight. Diurnal convection will 
be waning during the early evening hours but will maintain slight 
chance probability of precipitation overnight mainly over northern areas given the 
lingering surface boundary. May see patchy fog late given high dew points 
and weak surface flow. Lows range from the upper 60s inland to middle 
70s obx. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Thursday/... 
as of 3 am Friday...models continue in close agreement through the 
long term. The upper ridge over the southeast this weekend 
flattens out as several shortwaves move over the top of it. A 
broad upper trough develops the first half of next week along the 
New England and middle Atlantic coast allowing weak shortwaves to 
move east southeast across the forecast area. Convection this 
weekend will be isolated and mainly seabreeze-driven. By early 
next week the Piedmont trough reforms and along with the previously 
mentioned shortwaves all areas will see scattered storms each 
day. 


&& 


Aviation /11z Friday through Tuesday/... 
short term /through 12z Saturday/... 
low stratus at pgv only early this morning will lift shortly after 
sunrise. Mainly VFR is expected after sunrise into tonight...but 
scattered-broken cumulus likely to re-develop with surface heating with frontal 
boundary in vicinity along with isolated shower/thunderstorm threat. 


Model guidance suggests IFR/LIFR conditions as fog and stratus 
develops late tonight. It does appear to be a decent set up with 
light winds, clearing skies and high dew points/low dew point 
depressions. Reluctant to go too low with visibilities/ceilings given less 
confidence in the longer taf range time so will forecast MVFR for 
now. 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 3 am Friday...surface winds will be light through the period 
generally 10 knots or less...from the southeast Saturday...south 
Sunday then southwest Monday and Tuesday. Isolated convection 
Saturday will become scattered Monday and Tuesday. Visibilities mainly 
VFR except MVFR/IFR in the late night/early morning hours in warm 
humid airmass and especially at sites that see convection. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
weak front has stalled near Hatteras this morning and will remain 
nearly stationary for much of today. Over central and northern waters 
east/NE winds to 10-15 knots have developed behind the front. South of 
the front winds will remain S/SW mainly 10 knots or less today. Winds 
will gradually shift east/southeast and slowly diminish over northern and 
central waters as the front begins to lift north later tonight. 


Seas mainly 2 to 4 feet all areas through tonight. 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 3 am Friday...the Bermuda high will be the main feature in the 
extended period. Winds across the marine zones will veer from 
southeast Saturday to south Sunday then southwest Monday and 
Tuesday. Speeds will start out 5-10 knots Saturday and Sunday 
increasing to 10-15 knots Monday and Tuesday. Seas will run 2-4 
feet through the period.
