NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
534 am EDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Synopsis... 
weak high pressure north of the area will shift east over the 
Middle-Atlantic States as a weak wave of low pressure develops 
offshore and moves northeast along the coast today. A strong cold 
front will move through on Saturday bringing much cooler and windy 
weather for the upcoming weekend. High pressure will build in from 
the northwest Monday and Tuesday then move off the coast on 
Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 530 am Friday...made some minor tweaks to T/dew point to init the 
forecast otherwise no sig changes. Showers edging near the coast early 
this morning as a weak wave of low pressure develops along the front 
situated well offshore. The low will help pull moisture back to 
along the coast and possibly inland impacting areas mainly east of 
Highway 17 with scattered showers and mostly cloudy skies. Also the pressure 
gradient will be tighter across coastal areas with the surface high 
moving north of the area and the dvlpng surface low to the south thus NE 
winds on the coast could range 15-25 miles per hour. Inland areas west of 
Highway 17 will see less cloud cover and little chance for precipitation. 
Overall temperatures should warm into the lower and middle 60s. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Saturday/... 
as of 330 am Friday...showers associated with the weak low pressure 
system may brush the Outer Banks this evening before moving off to 
the NE. The strong upper low over the Ohio Valley will dive southward to the 
western Carolinas late tonight resulting in increasing clouds and 
widely scattered precipitation to develop inland late. Still should have 
enough radiational cooling to get temperatures down into the middle and upper 
40s inland and 50-55 for coastal sections. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Thursday/... 
as of 300 am Friday...very impressive upper system with significant 
impacts to affect eastern NC Saturday into Sunday then rather benign 
Fall weather expected for the remainder of the period. An 
anomalously deep upper low is forecast to track across South 
Carolina Saturday then move off of the NC coast Saturday night. The 
associated surface low will rapidly deepen off of the Outer Banks 
Saturday afternoon and continue to deepen as it pulls away from the 
region Saturday night. This system will produce strong northwest to 
north winds...widespread rain then usher in the coldest air of the 
fall season so far. The strong winds will lead to minor to moderate 
sound side flooding along the eastern Pamlico Sound basin Saturday 
night and Sunday and may be strong enough to prompt a High Wind 
Warning for damaging wind gusts along the immediate coast. Ocean 
coastal flooding will be a concern along Hatteras Island due to wave 
run up associated with 15 to 20 feet seas off of the coast. While most 
locations will receive an inch or less of rain the strong dynamics 
will likely lead to banded precipitation and some locally much 
heavier amounts which could produce flooding of low lying and poor 
drainage areas. Have included a mention of thunder east of Highway 
17 based on model Li forecasts and latest Storm Prediction Center day 2 convective 
outlook. The rain should come to an end before 12z Sunday with 
clearing skies and slowly diminishing winds expected Sunday as high 
pressure builds over the area. Guidance is indicating warmer 
temperatures for Saturday as cold advection will be delayed until 
late in the day so have temperatures reaching the lower to middle 
60s along the coast. On Sunday the strong cold advection will limit 
highs to the middle 50s at best even with sunny skies. Sunday night 
the first hard freeze will likely occur inland as temperatures fall 
to or just below freezing. Looks like winds will be too strong for 
frost along the coast though lows in the middle to upper 30s are 
expected. 


Early to middle next week will be dominated by a transient 
multilayered ridge which will provide mainly clear skies and a 
slow recovery of temperatures back to above normal levels by 
Wednesday. A cold front will bring increasing clouds and the next 
chance for showers Wednesday night into Thursday. 


&& 


Aviation /10z Friday through Tuesday/... 
short term /through tonight/... 
as of 330 am Friday...patchy fog should be limited this morning with some 
mixing and T/dew point spreads about 2-3 degrees. VFR ceilings likely to 
develop today with moisture advecting in off the Atlantic as 
the coastal low moves northeastward. Will leave precipitation out of the 
terminals as expect best precipitation overage to remain east of Highway 
17. May see some patchy fog at the terminals late tonight with 
light winds however increasing clouds will likely preclude sig fog 
development. 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 315 am Friday...as a strong upper low dives southeast into the 
Carolinas Sat a good covering of rain is expected leading to sub VFR 
ceilings and poss visibilities. Predominant VFR will return Sunday and continue 
into early next week as low pressure moves NE away from the region and 
surface high builds east. Strong and gusty northwest winds will develop late 
Sat and continue into sun as the low pressure deepens to the NE. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Thursday/... 
as of 530 am Friday...currently latest surface and buoy data 
indicate NE winds 15-20 knots with gusts around 25 knots knots and seas 
3-6 feet. Increased winds some across the coastal waters to around 20 
knots and seas up to 6 feet. Currenetly Diamond Shoals seas at 6 feet and 
likely will see some 6 footers across the outer southern coastal 
waters as well today with marginal Small Craft Advisory conds across the southern and 
central coastal waters. 


High pressure passes by to the north while a weak low 
pressure area develops along the stalled frontal boundary...and 
moves northeast along the Gulf Stream today. NE winds will continue near 20 
knots as the gradient pinches between the surface low and weak high 
pressure north of the area. Gusts to around 25 knots will be possible 
for the outer waters of the coastal zones from off Onslow Bay to 
off Diamond Shoals along with 6 feet seas. Gale watches continue for the 
area which would preclude any issuance of a Small Craft 
Advisory. Winds and seas across the coastal waters should stay 
below Small Craft Advisory criteria tonight with seas ranging from 2-5 feet. Winds 
will likely diminish tonight becoming north to north-northwest 10-15 knots as the surface 
low pulls away allowing for the pressure gradient to relax. 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 315 am Friday...a gale watch is in effect for all waters from 
late Saturday into early Sunday a strong area of low pressure 
develops off of the NC coast Saturday in response to an intense 
middle/upper level low moving into the area. The low is forecast to 
move away from the waters Sunday. As the surface low shifts off the CST 
later Sat and deepens, north-northwest winds will rapidly increase with strong 
gale conditions expected all waters late Sat/Sat evening through early 
Sunday...some gusts to storm force will be possible espcly outer 
central and northern waters. These strong winds will lead to dangerous 15 to 
20 foot seas outer waters Sat night into early Sunday. High surf and 
minor beach erosion will almost certainty result. 


Northwest winds will gradually diminish Sunday night and Monday as low 
pressure moves farther to the NE and high pressure builds into the 
area. Seas will slowly subside are forecast to drop below Small Craft Advisory 
levels by late Monday. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
2-3 feet tidal anomalies are likely along vulnerable coastlines as 
strong north-northwest winds develop Saturday night and continue into Sunday. 
The northern Outer Banks and southern Pamlico Sound, especially 
south of Hatteras, and down-east Carteret County will be 
particularly at risk for at least minor flooding with possibly 
moderate coastal flooding if strong gale force winds develop over 
the Pamlico Sound. 


&& 


Mhx watches/warnings/advisories... 
NC...none. 
Marine...gale watch from Saturday evening through Sunday morning for 
amz136-137-158. 
Gale watch from Saturday evening through Sunday afternoon for 
amz130-131-135-154-156. 
Gale watch from Saturday evening through Sunday afternoon for 
amz150-152.
