NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City NC 
253 PM EDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
a stationary front lingering along the coast of the southeast 
states will dissipate Monday. The next frontal system will affect 
the area late this week into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 245 PM Sunday...a few isolated showers have developed on the 
sea breeze. Think coverage will remain limited and a slight chance 
pop should cover things through the evening until activity 
dissipates with loss of heating. Dewpoints are quite low this 
afternoon inland with 59 degrees at koaj and 61 at kpgv. These 
dewpoints should recover overnight and should see lows around 70 
well inland to the muggy middle/upper 70s near the coast. 


&& 


Short term /Monday/... 
as of 245 PM Sunday...a middle-level trough will dig south and 
sharpen on Monday as surface low pressure forms on stalled 
frontal boundary to our south. This will serve to draw deep axis 
of moisture...currently over the Gulf Stream...back toward the 
coast. This will lead to a tight gradient of moisture across our 
County Warning Area with showers and embedded thunderstorms near the coast...but a 
good amount of sunshine inland. Will have likely probability of precipitation along the 
immediate coast tapering quickly to slight chance over the northern 
third of the County Warning Area. Have followed suit with temperatures with 
low/middle 80s coast with upper 80s/lower 90s over northern sections. 
Overall instability is rather limited and will likely just see 
showers with a few embedded thunderstorms starting middle to late 
morning on Monday. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Sunday/... 
as of 240 PM sun...GFS/ECMWF continue to trend wetter along the 
coast Monday night as moisture increases and a weak low lifts NE 
along remnant frontal boundary. Deep inland looks mostly dry as 
best moisture stays along the coast. Highs Monday lower 90s inland to 
80s CST with 70s areas wide Monday night. 


Main story for the Tuesday and Wednesday will be the heat as typical 
summertime pattern re-develops with high pressure offshore and 
strengthening trough inland. Heights build through middle week...with 
low level thickness values and 850mb temperatures supporting highs in the 
upper 80s/low 90s along the coast...and middle 90s/possibly a few 
upper 90s inland. Forecast dewpoints still keep apparent temperatures below 105 
but will be close to heat advisory. Isolated/widely scattered probability of precipitation Tuesday 
and Wednesday with best chance CST early morning and inland during afternoon and 
evening. 


The next frontal system will approach the region late week with 
increasing widespread precipitation chances. Upper trough develops to 
the west with a weak cold front approaching from the northwest. Still 
some uncertainty on exact timing and placement of the front...but 
models have boundary stalling over the area or just north...with 
an area of low pressure moving along it...finally pushing through 
the area Sat. Will continue chance probability of precipitation through the period. Will 
remain muggy however temperatures wont be quite as hot with mainly upper 
80s and lower 90s. Looks like it starts to dry out sun with north/NE 
flow and front moving off the coast. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Sunday through Friday/... 
short term /through 18z Monday/... 
as of 1255 PM Sunday...pretty much a persistence forecast for 
aviation this taf cycle. Should see a few cumulus only the sea 
breeze with isolated convection possible at kewn and koaj. With 
increasing dewpoints tonight...will again see patchy areas of 
IFR/MVFR fog in the predawn hours on Monday. 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
as of 240 PM sun...pred VFR conditions expected through the 
period. Patchy fog/stratus possible each morning...though low level 
SW flow will limit the threat. The next frontal system will impact 
the region Friday with better precipitation coverage and possible sub-VFR 
conditions. 


&& 


Marine... 
short term /through Monday/... 
as of 250 PM Sunday...winds are now generally southeast/S on all coastal 
waters. Speeds have increased to around 15 knots over the central 
waters and 10 to 15 knots elsewhere with seas 1 to 3 feet...with 
still a bit of swell over northern waters. As the gradient tightens 
Monday between high pressure well to the east and approaching 
surface low...may see periods of 15 to 20 knot winds over the 
central and southern waters. Latest local Swan/nwps model showing 
seas getting to 5 feet with a few areas of 6 feet well offshore 
Monday afternoon...but will cap at 5 feet for now. 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
as of 240 PM sun...south-southwest winds expected at 10 to 20 kts through the 
forecast period as trf continues inland with high pressure offshore. 
Persistent gusty winds will keep seas elevated espcly over the 
outer waters from hat S where will be mainly 5 to 6 feet Tuesday into Wednesday. 
A weak boundary will drop into the northern waters Wednesday...and could 
see temperature wind shift. The next frontal system will approach the 
waters Thursday night. There is still some uncertainty regarding 
the timing and placement of the front. Will maintain south-southwest flow and 
seas 3-6ft through Friday...though boundary could move into the 
waters and stall with veering winds.
