NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
655 am EDT sun Apr 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure to the south will drift slowly east-northeast through 
Monday. Weak high pressure will cross the area Monday night. A cold 
front will approach from the west Tuesday and cross the region 
Tuesday night. High pressure will build in behind the front Wednesday 
and Thursday then move off the coast Friday. A weak cold front 
will move into the area Saturday. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
as of 645 am sun...model trends continue to indicate best potential for 
additional rain today will be along the CST where axis of deepest 
moisture is located. Have lowered init probability of precipitation espcly inland but 
maintained likely CST. Widespread clouds will continue keeping temperatures 
well below normal with highs 60 to 65 inland and upper 50s to lower 
60s CST. Tight gradient north of the low will keep gusty north-northeast winds over the 
area espcly CST. Will be very close to wind advry obx/downeast 
Carteret today but for now will keep just below and continue to monitor. 


&& 


Short term /tonight/... 
as of 245 am sun...deeper moisture will continue to slowly slide 
further east with drying deep inland. For the CST will have likely 
probability of precipitation early diminishing to chance late. Shld remain cloudy CST...for 
inland areas would think stratus would form if did get breaks in 
clouds so will still show mcdy skies. Clouds will keep temperatures from 
dropping much with upper 40s deep inland to middle 50s beaches. North-northeast 
winds will remain gusty along the CST. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Saturday/... 
as of 310 am sun...vertically stacked low pressure will continue 
to slowly move east-northeast off the southeast coast Monday. Lingering chances of 
rain especially over coastal areas early Monday as a piece of 
upper level energy and deeper moisture rotate about the stacked 
low. May finally begin to see some clearing in earnest particularly 
over inland sections by Monday afternoon. Low level thickness 
values support highs in the upper 60s/70 deep inland and low/middle 
60s along the coast Monday. 


Milder low level SW flow will increase ahead of a cold front 
approaching from the northwest Tuesday. Middle Range model guidance in good 
agreement for chance of showers/possible thunderstorms developing 
later Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday evening ahead of a progressive 
sharp middle level trough. European model (ecmwf) continues to be much drier than 
GFS/NAM with this feature. Most of this shower activity should be 
moving off the coast after midnight. 


The remaining longer range forecast will feature dry and pleasant 
weather as an upper ridge gradually builds toward the East Coast 
through the end of the week. Temperatures middle 60s/low 70s Wednesday will rise to 
low 70s/80 by Friday. Possibly a weak front to affect the area 
Friday night into next Saturday. Will cap probability of precipitation at low end chance 
for now. 


&& 


Aviation /11z Sunday through Thursday/... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 645 am sun...lower levels have dried a bit early this morning with 
VFR at tafs sites. Forecast sounding indicate inversion will sharpen 
a bit today and likely lead to lower ceilings returning...for now will 
show MVFR. Overnight the inversion will slowly lower and will go 
with some IFR near CST late where moisture will be deepest. North-northeast winds 
will be gusty through the period peaking this afternoon. 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 310 am sun...conditions will be gradually improving 
Monday with conditions returning to VFR by afternoon from west to 
east. Sub-VFR ceilings could hang on longer for ewn/oaj...maybe late 
afternoon. Showers and possible thunderstorms ahead of a cold 
front may again lead to brief periods of sub-VFR Tuesday afternoon 
and evening. The front will move through quickly Tuesday night 
with predominant VFR returning for Wednesday and Thursday. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 645 am sun...no changes planned. Winds have increased with Small Craft Advisory 
all waters now and marginal gales cntrl/south. Have seen a few 
gusts 30 to 35 central/southern tier and Diamond buoy started reporting 
again with seas 12 to 14 feet. All models show winds increasing a bit 
today with 20 to 30 kts all waters and potential for 30 to 40 knots gusts 
espcly central/southern tier including Pamlico Sound. Will continue all 
headlines with seas building 8 to 12 feet outer waters today...locally 
15 feet near Diamond buoy. These large seas will continue tonight as winds 
will slowly diminish as the low drift further east and high to the north 
weakens. 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 310 am sun...strong winds will continue early Monday with 
low off the southeast coast. As the low drifts slowly east and the high weakens 
winds will gradient subside Monday night. Seas 5-11ft early Monday will 
gradually subside through the day...finally dropping below 6ft by 
Tuesday morning. Northwest winds less than 15kt early Tuesday will be veering 
through the day becoming SW by afternoon. Increasing SW flow Tuesday 
afternoon and evening ahead of approaching cold front. The front 
will move through the waters Tuesday night. Models show with seas 
building to 4-6ft north of Ocracoke...with northwest winds increasing to 
15-25kt. Brief period of Small Craft Advisory conditions will be possible behind 
the front late Tuesday night into Wednesday afternoon. High pressure will 
build into the area Wednesday and Thursday. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
as of 245 am sun...as winds increase across northern waters today seas 
in surf zone shld gradient build to 7 to 9 feet...so continue high surf 
advry north of hat. Waters levels will continue to be 2 to 3 feet above 
normal southern Pamlico Sound with persistent NE flow so continue coastal 
flood advry. 


&&
